I am very picky about the materials of my toys, so I was very happy to see that this stroker was made of TPR. The inside is ribbed and studded, which is easily palpable with a finger, but isn't really noticeable when in use. The soft, jelly-like material is extremely squishy and stretchy, which makes holding onto it a bit of a challenge if your hands aren't completely dry. Unfortunately, after just one use, the material and shape have already started to degrade. Small air pockets have started to form in addition to the inside being noticeably stretched out of shape. The worst was noticing bits of the product had started to fleck off as we were washing it.
So the name "Deep Curve Stroker" implies (to me anyway) that the curve of this toy is supposed to have some kind of effect on the experience. It doesn't. Well, unless you turn it upside-down, in which case it has the slightest bit more resistance to it. My husband was noticeably impressed with how well it simulates anal sex though. For all of its short-comings, the name "Sweet Ass" is spot-on as far as the experience is concerned. I loved the fact that it was transparent. It's awesome for those of us who enjoy visual stimulation. The internal texture is fairly useless though. Fortunately it doesn't detract from the tight, all-encompassing fit. The Sweet Ass is pretty small and not very heavy. When you shove it in a bag it just looks like a mushy blob of clear jelly. Much less noticeable than the usual authentic vagina look of most masturbators. As previously stated, this thing stretches from here to Texas, so I'm sure it would accommodate even the extremely well-endowed man (though due to its rapid deterioration, its lifespan would be considerably shorter if you were to go at it with an 8"+ hard-on).
All in all, the actual performance of the toy was commendable. It boasts an anal experience and that is what you get. As with any stroker, it makes a bit of noise, but nothing that can be heard through a closed door. We loved how the lube didn't leak out the bottom like it does with some of his more expensive masturbators. It does seem to be more of a disposable toy though. At this rate of deterioration, I don't expect it to last the full two months to the follow-up review. It's also hard to judge the actual value of the product since there is not yet a price posted for it. Definitely not worth more than $15 since its lifespan is so short, but the experience is still quite fulfilling.
The material is TPR, but it's tacky like a soft jelly. It's extremely sticky, so try to keep it away from anywhere your pets might come into contact with. It's easy to flip inside-out, so cleaning is a breeze. We keep it in the plastic bag it came in, and store that in the original box. We keep most of our toys in their original packaging though. We (thus far) have only used our water-based lube, but the hubster has expressed a desire to try a silicone-based lube (which is fine, since it's not a silicone toy). The packaging does, however, recommend only using water-based lubes, but it only states that is for maximum pleasure, not because it would harm the toy.
It comes in a box that is about twice the size needed to store the toy. Inside that is a plastic bag, which you should keep since this thing sticks to everything. There were no instructions other than "Slip inside me and experience total ecstasy", so if you buy this not knowing what it is, you'll be pretty lost. Hopefully anyone paying money for this product knows it's to jerk off into though, so I assume there isn't much to know besides that. The packaging is your typical cardboard box, nothing special. If you prefer to keep your toys in your own storage device, I would still recommend keeping this in a bag or in a plastic tupperware-style container.
I absolutely love using masturbators on my husband. The fact that this one was transparent made the whole experience even better. Now if they could only come out with one that was see-through AND had a long life-span, I'd be thrilled...
This is a fun toy for hubby to use on his own, or (preferably) with me. We enjoy the occasional pegging session, and I love having a stroker on hand to add the additional stimulation. The more ways I can please him at once, the more I enjoy it myself. This is much smaller than his other masturbator, so I have much more control over it, even when I'm trying to focus on making sure my strap-on doesn't slip out of his ass.
