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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Bob is also Food-grade material / Hypo-allergenic / Latex free / Non-porous / Phthalates free
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.
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.
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.
