Is the Vanilla Vixskin too pale?

Kynky Kytty Kynky Kytty
The Chocolate color is a warm color that I do want to get eventually, but I do want a first light skinned toy to have a realistic look without an exotic factor (in my couple it would be).

We're both Caucasian and the only other color that actually looks natural for me is the Caramel one, even if it's slightly darker than my own skin tone. As for the Vanilla, and I mean no offense, it looks like a sickly person's skin tone. It's just too pale.

Am I the only person in this situation, or am I on to something since the Caramel colors are usually the ones that go quickly out of stock. The Bandit has just got on the site, and the Caramel is already out of stock. It was on my wish list until my first order of the week... I'm sad.

So with my comment, I figured it would be interesting what other people think about the available colors. It's multiple answers.

A shade between the Vanilla and Caramel would be nice.

The Vamp, by Tantus, matches my skin tone pretty closely, so Vanilla is perfect for someone like me who believes pale is the new tan. However more color variations would be nice in general for people who's skin tones don't quite have a match.

Blonds tend to have a very pale skin tone - when not tanned that is. I've got dark hair and even without any tan, I feel like I'm closer in color to the Caramel.

I am very pale but I am dark haired, naturally. My skin color is really close the the vanilla color, I am so pale that you can see the blue veins throughout my whole body, which is also a trait that I passed to my children. I am the only one in the family like this actually. I am not a fan of realistic colored ones but if I was I would most likely buy the vanilla one.

Personally I think the Vanilla is a little pale and the Caramel is a little dark. Also, somehow neither seems a "natural" color to me. I'm not sure how to explain it, but they just don't seem like skin tones to me. Something is off about the tones.

I'm fair haired and super-pale, and vanilla still looks too pale for me. My first VixSkin toy I got in caramel---I figure that, even though it's a smidgen dark, most caucasians' cocks are a few shades darker than the rest of their skin, so it's better to go too dark than too light.

Honestly, I've slept with a lot of guys of nordic descent. I've never seen a penis as pale as VixSkin's vanilla. I'm only judging by the product pictures, but it just looks ghostly.

I'm only ever going to buy caramel and chocolate.

I've always like the carmel color toys and while thats close to my skin tone its very different than my husbands very pale skin.

Oh, one other thought! Sometimes there's VixSkin-to-VixSkin variation. I got the caramel Lone Star, which you can see in my hex nuts review.

But Stormy got the caramel Goodfella (her review with pics) and it looks a good shade-and-a-half darker than mine.

So, I'm not too sure what to say about that, except that your mileage may vary? My caramel wound up being as close to a pale girl's cock as possible (that is, a couple notches darker than my thighs) *, but Stormy's would definitely have looked unrealistic against my skin.

*You can see my skin tone over here.

I think it may be the exposure in her photos. If you look at the pictures later in the review when she is wearing it in a harness, it has a much lighter color.

I like the color of the vanilla one, but honestly color isn't an important factor for me.

Not sure what to do on this. Looking to get pick up some Vixskin, but I'm not crazy about the super pale color either. It is paler than my skin tone and flesh cocks are generally many shades darker. But the caramel is also pretty far off, so something in between would be nice.

The caramel colors are my favorite as the browns are too dark and neither the brown or white ones look realistic to me. But the caramel are always out of stock

I like the vanilla ones. I'm super fair skinned, and they go fairly well with my skin tone, but I can understand that it wouldn't match most people. Color just isn't important to me though.

Vanilla is a bit too pale - it reminds me of a vampire! While this isn't really a bad thing, I'd really enjoy a shade darker than vanilla but lighter than Caramel.

After agonizing about the out-of-stock-ness of the caramel Mustang for so long, I finally rationalized enough with myself, broke down, and got the vanilla. It will be here Wednesday, so I'll see how it turns out.

It may have to do with how skin isn't one shade smoothly blanketed over the entire body (or, more specifically, cock).

If only cocks like the TitanMen Tony Buff realistic cock came in safer materials. That cock is gorgeous, but it's made of pvc.

I got the vanilla goodfella, and even though it is paler than myself, my wife has never commented on it. It doesn't bother us one way or the other.

We have a Vanilla Outlaw. We don't mind the color at all.

I agree. The vanilla is close to my skintone. I think it's nice

I just got my vanilla Mustang, and I'm happy to announce that it is not near as pale as it looked on the website! Huzzah! It's perfect!

We got ones in carmel cause we didn't like the either the Vanilla nor the chocolate. I'd say something in between would be nice.

We're both Caucasian and the only other color that ...
I prefer the toys to look real and I agree the vanilla looks like a sick persons body part..

Lets understand that we're talking about a toy not a prosthetic. I don't like anatomically realistic toys at all, not in shape or color. My opinion is of course not binding on you nor is yours binding to me. My preference is for colors starkly in contrast to any natural coloration of myself or my partner. Brilliant red, purple, blue, even carbon black but "flesh color" no thank you.

I like that it's very pale, I'm very pale and like the look of pale skin.

I'd much prefer bright colors as well, but Vixen is well known for keeping their realistic colors for most of their Vixskin toys.

Realistic bothers me, but I'm not too creeped out by the vanilla.

I have one in the vanilla and am wondering if the caramel would have been a better choice. I think It would be closer to my partners skin tone, she is light skinned but Italian, so her skin does have an olive tint.

I think the vanilla is fine, because I don't think it looks like the most natural of colours (which I hate)
