The Original Vac-U-Lock dildo is made from silicone. Silicone does absorb fluid well, so using lots of lubrication is recommended during use. Silicone also retain heat well, so if a more realistic feel is desired, this dildo can be warmed in water before use. During use, this sex toy will also heat up to your body temperature.
The silicone used to make this dildo is relatively firm compared to other silicone. It only has the slightest amount of squish to it, and unlike other toys, doesn't bend much. This can bend to about a 35 degree angle from the natural position. This dildo about has the same amount of firmness to the average male's penis when he is fully aroused - a slight bit of squish, but not much. This dildo does have a good amount of drag to the silicone as well - it isn't silky smooth.
When first being removed from the package, the dildo does have a slight scent. It can only be smelled if held up right under the nose, but it smells like a cleaning solution (with a light lemony scent), so this is probably what was used to clean the dildo before being scent out. The scent was completely faded after two washes. For those that do strap-on play, this dildo does not have any sort of taste to it at all.
The texture on this dildo is made to be realistic. The bottom of the shaft of the dildo is completely free from all texture and is smooth. The top side of the shaft has one long "vein" through the center of it, and from that vein, there are lots of other smaller veins protruding in different directions. The main vein sticks out the most from the body of the toy, but the rest of the veins stick out enough that they are easily visible and easily felt during use and by the fingers.
This toy does have a pronounced head with a pronounced ridge underneath the head. There is about a 1/6 of an inch different from the ridge underneath the head to the head itself. Some women may enjoy the sensation of it being "popped" in while others may find the ridge uncomfortable.
This dildo was designed to look realistic, but it definitely was given some help in measurements. This dildo measures 8 inches long and has a diameter of an inch and a half. Because this silicone is firmer than some other types of silicone, this diameter may feel larger than it would in others. The entire dildo was given a matte finish to help it resemble skin tone more closely. For those who have fair skin, this should match the skin tone relatively well.
The dildo was designed with a base as well for harness use. As long as the O-ring you are using can take an 1 1/2 dildo, this dildo will work. The base is a bit on the thin side for such a large dildo, so unless your harness is fitted well, this dildo may end up drooping because of the weight of 8 inches of silicone. Underneath the dildo is a hole that makes this dildo compatible with the Vac-U-Lock system.
While this hole is a little long for bullet use, if you are careful and place your bullet in a condom first, a bullet can be slid into this hole to make this dong vibrate as well. However, do not slide a bullet in without any way to retrieve it since the passageway through this dildo is longer than a dildo at three and a half inches and may prove difficult to get your bullet back.
This Doc Johnson toy was designed for penetration and pleasure during penetration. It does not have any sort of curve to it to aid in g-spot stimulation. However, this sex toy does include quite a bit of texture to make penetration more pleasurable.
This toy does have a larger girth and length to it. The measurements of this toy do make it much larger and girthier than the average male genitals. Because of this, the toy's measurements should be carefully considered with your own preference before ordering this Vac-U-Lock dildo. While this toy can be used anally, most users will find this a bit too long/girthier for most anal use. However, using lots of lubricant helps the use of this dildo become much more pleasurable.
Some women may find that this dildo hits their g-spot during use because of the girth and the length. Some may also find the length of this a good thing since it can brush up softly against the cervix. Others may find that the girth is uncomfortably large. With lots of lubricant and a good warm-up, most people should be able to use this vaginally with no problem.
The base around the bottom of the toy makes a good handle during use. Even if the hands are lubricated, the base will provide a good surface for gripping the toy and thrusting. This base also works well if a partner would like to use this dildo on you as well.
Because this is intended for use with the Vac-U-Lock system, this dildo will work well for the harness and "sexercise" ball that include that Vac-U-Lock features. Any other product that includes room for Vac-U-Lock accessories will work well with this dong. This toy should also be able to use Tantus's suction cup attachment to make this suction up against surfaces.
The Original Vac-U-Lock Platinum Dildo is made from silicone, so proper cleaning for silicone should be used. This can be shared between partners as long as the dildo is sterilized between non-fluid-bonded partners. Sterilizing could include a bleach solution, or even easier, boiling this dildo in water. For cleaning between regular uses, warm water and antibacterial soap should remove all of the bacteria. Cleaning is recommended before and after each use of the dildo.
Since this dildo is made from silicone, no silicone-based lubricants should be used with it. Lubrication with this product is recommended, and the most compatible lubricant to use would be water-based lubricant.
This dildo does collect small amounts of fuzz. This is nothing compared to other silicone dildos, so if you choose, this dildo could be left out without the packaging. As long as you don't store it near other silicone toys, there should be no problem storing this dildo wherever your space would permit.
The packaging for The Original Vac-U-Lock dildo is basic. The dildo is kept in blister packaging made from plastic. This packaging could be used for storage of the dildo, but it is a bit large, and most people will fit it annoying to deal with the large packaging. The front side of the packaging clearly shows off the dildo inside of the package, but all of the features of the product are on the back.
According to the backside of the packaging, this dildo is phthalate-free, intended for use with the Vac-U-Lock system, made in the USA, sold as novelty only, hypo-allergenic, harness compatible, easy to clean, and of the highest quality material. According to the back of the packaging, it also warms to body temperature quickly for comfortable use.
No instructions for use of the dildo are included in the packaging. Nothing apart from the dildo itself is included. The packaging is tasteful, but not very attractive, and it wouldn't make for a romantic gift in this packaging. The product should be repackaged in another box for gift giving.
As a side-note, I'm not familiar with the Vac-U-Lock system in the slightest. I have no idea how it works, and I have no idea how the changing of the pieces work. I just know this dildo is compatible with the Vac-U-Lock system.
Let it also be known that I am the queen of bad titles. I seriously couldn't think of anything for this one.
