Bob pleasure object - sex toy by LELO - review by Trysexual

  • Christmas shipping schedule

A luxurious and subtle pleasure object.

A beautifully crafted prostate massager packed inside an elegant box. Everything about it is nice: the material, shape, craftsmanship, pouch, color and size for a beginner. I may change my opinion over time, but I wish it were a bit bigger and firmer with a slightly thicker neck. It is a good toy that is very comfortable to wear, but may fall short of expectations for advanced p-spot players looking for more intense stimulation. Great for newbies.

Use

Bob is one of many Prostate massagers on the market, though females can certainly enjoy using it as a butt plug or possibly a G spot stimulator, but it is primarily a male geared toy. It is 100% high grade silicone too, so sharing is an option, since you can sterilize it between uses. It has an elegant shape that has a tapered nose leading to a 1" maximum diameter and tapers down to about 1/4" just before the handle loop. The loop serves as a handle to insert/remove the toy, as well as preventing Bob from being lost inside you and requiring a humiliating ER visit. The loop fits nicely between your cheeks when inserted and is soft and squeezable.

The toy is meant to be inserted and remain so during sex, masturbation or meditation/relaxation. You could use it for extended wear as well. As you relax and contract your sphincter/pc muscles, this moves the toy in and out gently massaging your prostate and providing a pleasurable sensation. This intensifies with orgasm. It is not really meant to be thrusted, though you could if you choose to and the loop provides and easy means to manipulate the object. Because silicone has some drag, it is a good idea to use a liberal amount of water based lube. This aids the movement, while preventing any discomfort or pain as lubes can absorb and dry out inside you. Bob gives a slight sense of fullness when inserted. You can feel it touch your prostate immediately upon insertion.

This is a great toy for a beginner or intermediate to anal/prostate play.

Material / Texture

The Silicone is easy to clean and can be sterilized with 10% bleach solution, soaking in a cup of boiling water, or cleaned with antibacterial soap and/or toy cleaner. The texture is velvety. Once you lube it up, it feels smooth though. It is 100% waterproof, so don't hesitate to wear in the shower or tub.

EF recommends not using silicone lube with silicone toys or it can degrade the material. The instructions suggest using the spot test if you insist on using a silicone based lubricant. They even include a sample packet of their own water based, paraben-free lube.

You can store in the box, a plastic bag or a cloth pouch(included)if you want to keep dust from attracting itself to Bob's gorgeous curves.

Bob comes with a 1 year warranty from Lelo if anything goes wrong. It's nice to know when you are dropping a good amount of money on a toy.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

Bob is 5" long, with 3 1/2" being insertable. It is 3 1/4" in circumference or 1" in diameter at it's widest point. The neck is about 1/4-5/8" wide. It's an ideal size and you won't have to worry about it falling out. Bob is very light at .1 lbs.

Only size queens or those experienced with prostate/anal play will find Bob too small. I think it is ok for travel and doesn't scream sex toy, plus it will probably not raise any red flags on an xray machine.

I really like the shape of Bob. It is not as large as I originally thought. In fact, it looks and feels much smaller than expected. After having seen some comparison photos, I realized it would be a good fit for me. I like anal toys that stay put and move with your contractions.

Bob comes in two colors. Blue (navy) or Burgundy(red). It is flexible at the neck and can easily bend and/or twist. The ring as well can be squished.

Performance

Bob is easy to insert. The width and length are not intimidating at all. The surface, while matte, is very smooth and there are no seams. I was actually a bit disappointed it wasn't a little larger and firmer. The neck bends quite a bit, as you can see in the photos. It takes a little more finagling to insert than a firm toy, but it isn't difficult. Once inside, I could feel a slight pressure on my prostate and found it easy to walk around with it inserted. The ring fits comfortably between your cheeks. It is waterproof of course so you can enjoy it in the shower, pool etc.

It feels pleasurable inside and you can feel some pressure when squeezing your muscles around it, but it is not mind blowing good. Those used to more girth will be disappointed. A beginner would find this a good introduction to anal toys and prostate stimulation as well, particularly if you aren't fond of firmer materials like glass, metal, plastic.

I remember thinking this might be too thick based on the photos, but unfortunately it's a bit smaller than I would prefer. It is a full 1" thick, which is usually my preference, but feels smaller when inserted. Maybe I am just getting more experienced or it is the lack of rigidity? It is a well made, high quality toy though. Perhaps with more use, my feelings will change.

Care and Maintenance

Bob is pure 100% non porous silicone. Silicone is a 10 on the EF rating scale for safety. There is no noticeable smell from Bob and it is smooth to the touch with a noticeable amount of drag. The drag can be a plus or minus depending on your preference, but a good water based lube makes it easily insertable and reduces the inherent drag. It is able to be sterilized, so you can share or swap between holes after cleaning, if you so choose.

The only negative about the material is silicone draws lint and dust, but this is no worse than most any other silicone toy I have used in that regard. However, because they give you a storage pouch and useable box, this is a non issue.

Bob is great for beginners or advanced players alike, depending on your preference for size, shape. It is somewhat realistic in shape, but with a more sleek futuristic look.

Packaging

Lelo always does nice packaging and Bob is no different. It comes in a nice black case with the Lelo log on it and Bob rests securely inside within a cutout. It looks very classy and is a convenient storage solution. If left on the bedside table, it wouldn't be obvious what is inside, unless someone knew the Lelo brand already.

The box is a nice black cardboard box with the Lelo logo imprinted in an understated way, almost as if it were a wallet gift box. Inside there is a warranty card, multilingual instructions, a lube sample and a pouch for alternate storage if you don't plan to use the box. Either option works well and it's good to see they include both. The whole package is definitely classy.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage

Personal comments

Because this has a looped handle, it is possible to stick a bullet vibrator inside the loop if you prefer vibration. It may interfere with your comfort though.

I think this is a good toy. Not sure it is $50 good, but if you catch it on sale for 30% off, it is a good buy. If you like big toys inside you or something heavy, then you might want to skip this one.

Experience

I used this a few times solo while using a fleshlight. I definitely feel Bob tickling my prostate upon insertion and if I lay in bed and contract my muscles around it I get some movement. It is a subtle stimulation and a bit less than I am used to with other toys (Get a grip, Luv plug).

When in a missionary position, I don't feel Bob as much as I do other toys with more heft. I'd say my orgasms are better than with nothing inserted, but not as intense as I've had with other toys. When I use the get a grip I can extend my pleasure after the initial orgasm and the toy continues to move and stimulate my prostate, begging me to keep going and maintains my erection. I can keep flexing and thrusting and have prolonged pleasure. With Bob, I don't get that nearly as much. I think it is a function of the flexibility of the neck and lack of weight.

That said, Bob is more comfortable as something to wear for extended periods of time than other toys I have tried. It doesn't get in the way and causes no discomfort to sit on. It remains inside securely too and won't fall out. I can see using Bob for times when I want to wear this for longer play, in bed, sleeping, watching porn or getting a massage maybe. Sadly though, it won't be the one I reach for when I want a Big intense O.
Follow-up commentary
I still like Bob, but it only gets occasional use. It's not my go-to toy for prostate stimulation, but does have its place for more extended wear (when I have time for that). I plan to wear in public sometime and give that a try, but have not yet.
