True it doesn't look happy but I don't know if I would want to see it smiling at me either. Sorry the picture made your boss.

One more thing I will add to the discussion is the following definition for the word "Bimbo":

In Germany during the 19th and 20th century, the word "Bimbo" had the dual meaning as racist term for a person of African descent.

It may be pure coincidence, who knows but the artist himself. I love art as well and would love to read more on the subject and the inspiration for the design.

And now

I didn't even see the resemblance to black face until it was pointed out here. What bothers me about it is the boyish proportions. Using it might feel like inserting a strange, colorful child inside you.

...inserting a strange, colorful child inside you.

I loved that. It really did make me chuckle out loud.

Ok when i say it i thought strange impractical and expensive....and after reading this thread I'm now having images of a strange impractical expensive colorful child racist gumbie going up my ass...not a turn on if it needed to be stated.

What I'm wondering is how Eden got a hold of something that says it limited to only 500?

So...is it bad that I actually kind of like it? I mean, I don't find it sexually appealing really, but there's something about it that makes me want to own it. And if I owned it, I would use it. It is a little creepy, but I don't really care what it looks like once it's in use. As long as it feels good, I don't much care about the...eerie little eyes...staring at my vagina...okay, maybe it's more than a little creepy. But still. Look at all the bright colors it comes in! That counts for something, right?

Eden often lists products that haven't been released yet as discontinued. A lot of times they go live, then come back down and are listed as discontinued until they get a DR up for it. I'm not sure why this is done, but I've noticed it for other products. I find it hard to believe that they would sell so many of such an odd/expensive toy so quickly?

As far as the price, I think that $136 is about the going rate for this product (the product is 100 Euros on the Fun Factory site). The original price might have been a mistype?

It was available for sale just yesterday though (showing as "in stock"). You could've actually put it in your cart. Could it have just sold out that quickly?

I also love all the bright color selections on this odd-looking toy. I kind of like the deep blue one and the turquoise one, though the green and yellow are tempting, too . . .

Weird! If it was purchased, where are all the buyers?? Not on this thread, that's for sure! A GREAT MYSTERY is afoot at Eden!!! (Sorry, I've been watching a lot of UFO documentaries, lately...)

Maybe it did sell well. Its listed as one of the top ten classic dildos and dongs. The Jopen toys sold well and their price shot up right away too.

The product page also says that it's a 500 piece limited edition thing. Maybe it's in high demand because of that. I gotta say, if there will only ever be 500 of them, the collector in me wants it a lot more now.

I really want the Turquoise one. I don't know why, but it's enticing to me.

Also, has anybody else gotten the "Mr. Bill" feeling from the white one?

I would buy it just to say I owned it but I could never use it, to weird looking!

That is really weird looking, I don't know how you would use it. Seems a little uncomfortable to insert. But I can see it being in some kind of sex toy art collectors display.

Looks too kitschy. I'd rather spend the money on a Pure Wand.

I've got a turquoise one on the way. The face is reminiscent of a blow up doll, sex not racism for me. I don't understand the kink that made me want to own it. Hair and tush are very feminine, but the large penis is obviously male, the breasts are only represented by nipples, could go either way. Am I really pansexual as I've seen others declare themselves? I can live with that, especially since I'll remain monogamous till death do us part. In the meantime we'll simulate all else with toys.

I really look forward to trying it out, but I fell in love with it for its intended purpose: sex art. I want to display this like a centerpiece of our toy display, so even if it doesn't provide physical sexual pleasure, it will certainly provide mental sexual pleasure.

Will do. A review is already being drafted. Many have commented on Jim O's price, I don't find it so expensive when compared to quality silicone dildos of similar size. We paid about the same for our Goodfella, which has been worth every pegging...er..penny.

At a first glance, I was like "There is no way I could stick that thing inside me because it looks like a person." On second glance, same thoughts, but now because it doesn't look like its shape would be comfortable, let alone pleasurable, inside of a woman.

Conclusion: If you have a fetish for putting an entire person inside you, or you NEED a EXTREMELY discreet vibrator... then you might want it? Otherwise, why? Lol

Believe it or not, it's not intended as a sex toy, but as sex art.

I've received my Jim O and have submitted a review. As a preview, for those who can't envision Jim O's dildo function, here he is beside, underneath, and on top of our Goodfella, both on one of our Liberator Throes:

Wow. I am really kind of fascinated by this toy(?) art(?) thing(?). Whatever it is. I'm still not convinced I would really want to use it (though I would have to try it out at least once if I owned it), but I kind of want to buy it as art just to display it somewhere. But, where? It's not really the sort of piece you prop up next to the vintage glass paperweights and pretty candles, which are more my usual decorating scheme. Or, maybe it would be fun to juxtapose it with the surroundings. It's obviously meant to be startling, no matter what you think about gender and/or racial messages it sends.

Oh my god, I must have this. It's too weird NOT to have. And I want to collect all the colors, but that would be horrendously expensive.
