This is our first PVC toy, and I'm happy to report that there are no smells, and that the texture is smooth in almost a way that Jelly tries for but can't quite grasp. It's sturdy with a little give, and because it is smooth it glides in easily with water or silicone lubricant.
The design as far as the insertable part of the plug goes is quite pleasing in both appearance and feel, but I still argue that the base could have been flared just a little bit more. However, I don't believe that this should cause very much concern or alarm.
The size and shape are a step up from a beginners conical shaped plug that you see used so often, and the awesome little tip pressed gently but firmly into my husband's prostate. It was comfortable to slip in, but when he clenched down on it during orgasm it did slip out. Perhaps a narrower taper might have prevented this.
This toy enhanced the feeling of sex tremendously for my husband. He said he could feel absolutely everything and that somehow it all intensified the sensations. I was on top of him while he had the plug in, and I barely did any work at all because he was absolutely tingling and feeling it all over. This is probably due to the wide girth of the plug which gave him the pleasurable open anus feeling and the firm but delight pressure on his prostate.
However when he came, the toy slipped out and he felt like his fun had been cut a bit short. Had it stayed in, would his orgasm be better?
As we found out later, the answer is yes. It may have slipped out because of lube, and somehow this brave man painlessly inserted it without any lube the second time (which might have been so easy due to the smoothness of the material) and sure enough he had an earth shattering orgasm, the Pixie Curve along for the whole ride.
PVC is pretty easy to take care of. Warm water and anti-bacterial soap or your favorite toy cleaner will do just fine. It is very easy to care for because it is one of the more durable materials that sex toys are made from today.
The package popped right open, no staples or glue or endless struggles. However, all over the package there are warnings that this product is for external use only and that it is only a novelty. That kind of makes me wonder. But we ignored the box and shoved it up there anyway.
