I'm saving up for a dual density silicone dildo. I've been lusting after one for a while. Here are my three contenders: O2 Adam, Happy Valley Lucky & VixSkin Lone Star. Which would you choose and why? I appreciate the input!
I'm not sure that the Lucky is actually dual-density, but I could be wrong. However, having handled both the Lone Star and O2 Adam, I can say that overall the Lone Star is squishier(and thus preferable for me). The O2 Adam features variable-thickness softer material, so in some areas it is squishier than other areas. From what I remember the top of the shaft is harder than the bottom.
I'd go with the VixSkin. I have the O2 Adam and the VixSkin Johnny and I MUCH prefer the VixSkin. The Adam is nice, but nothing spectacular. I found that it was a little too flexible for me to get the g-spot stimulation I expected from seeing that curve, but then again, I've been spoiled by hard materials like glass.
VixSkin has a really interesting soft and squishy feel. Pretty close to the real thing! Way better than the O2 material, in my opinion.
I've never tried any of the dildos that you listed above, but I just got the Raquel and am loving the feel/squishiness of the material. However, I own a couple of O2 toys as well (the Revolution and Rascal).
I don't own any dildos with balls, either, but that may change. I've been eyeing the VixSkin Johnny for a while...I don't have any particular opposition to toys with balls, I just haven't bought any yet.
I would prefer a dildo with balls if I didn't have such a shallow vagina and could actually take one all the way so I could feel them lol! Balls get in the way with our harness, too, so that's a no on balls for me.
I only have one dual-density toy, a VixSkin Maverick, but one of the big things I notice on that that I don't see on the O2 toys is the very slight texturing. You can feel it and it helps hold the lube, but it's not "too much" for anal, even with rapid thrusting.
I definitely don't like realistic colors, I want my toy to look more fun than real. That being said..if I do get one of the dual-density dildos, it will probably be from the O2 line. From what I've seen of Vixskin and comparison between the two lines O2 is firmer, less bendable and that's what I want in a dildo :0
We started out stylized - I wasn't sure how she would react to lifelike. It turns out that since she rarely sees them - she's fine either way as long as it feels good. I'm guessing that thousands of years of evolution give the edge to something 'lifelike' and my girl's current favorite - VixSkin Johnny at least partially confirms the theory.
