Bad Boys Finish LastThe Bad Boy comes close, but doesn't quite cut it. This prostate massager shows promise and a lot of evident thought in its design in certain areas: the cavity for its bullet, the nodules meant to stimulate the perineum, etc. However, in the end the Bad Boy disappointed us due to a lack of thoughtful construction in some very critical areas.
The Bad Boy is one of three prostate massagers issued by Rocks Off Ltd, including the Rude Boy and the Naughty Boy. No exception to the others, the Bad Boy comes in whimsical packaging and is constructed of 100% medical grade matte silicone which means it's phthalates-free, body-safe, non-porous and sterilizable. A condom is not needed when sharing: in order to sterilize simply wash with anti-bacterial soap and warm water, a 10% bleach solution, or boil for 3-4 minutes in hot water. You may want to keep this guy in a Ziploc bag because he is especially prone to attracting dust and lint. Please also remember that silicone toys are often not compatible with silicone lubricants. In order to be safe you should use a water or oil based lubricant! If you want to try your luck with silicone lube make sure you perform a spot test first.
Besides being made of high quality material, the Bad Boy features a great little single-touch, one-speed bullet called the RO-80MM, about two inches long and made of hard plastic. It takes one N battery and can easy be cleansed with soap and a damp wash cloth. It claims to be waterproof but I have not submerged it yet so I can't personally vouch for its under-water efficacy. For its size, the RO-80MM packs a decent punch and I have actually had quite a bit of fun using this bullet on my clitoris just on its own. My boyfriend and I agree that this is one of the more redeeming attributes of this toy. The cavity in the toy that houses this bullet features alternating raised strips that help prevent friction and ease the removal of the bullet. This helps a lot but we still coat the bullet with water based lube before we slide it in. The bullet provides pretty excellent stimulation to the balls and the pronounced bumps on the handle of the toy also offer a great sensation to the perineum. Sounds great, right? So why did I give it such a mediocre rating?
The unfortunate fact is, when it finally came time to plunge this little fella in my boyfriend's bummy, he presented one problem after another. First, the toy was difficult to insert due to his rather severe curve and large bead-like bulges. After we succeeded with penetration, we could not find a position conducive to firm prostate stimulation. Not the sort to be easily defeated, my partner and I cycled through position after position, maneuvered the toy until our wrists got sore --gave it the old college try, truly. Still, unless I was forcing the toy inside of him with all of my weight behind it, it didn't hit his prostate. The toy has an insertable length of 5 inches, which is a fairly average length. However, once you get through all the twists and turns of its body you find that 5" doesn't seem quite as long as it did on paper. My boyfriend did find the vibrations --transmitted pretty well by the shaft of the toy-- pleasant but certainly not orgasmic, and the incredibly slight pressure on his prostate from the Bad Boy was not enough to bring him to climax.
In addition to not hitting the spot, the Bad Boy was difficult to keep in. The two distinctive bulges in its shaft had me hopeful that it would stay put, but the largest bulge (closer to the bullet) was, I think, too close in size to the neck. I had to keep my hand on the the base throughout in order to keep it from slipping, even well before orgasm. When my partner finally did reach orgasm it was only after a good old-fashioned reach-around: not exactly how we planned on ending our evening with the Bad Boy. After trying with this toy three more times after our introduction to it, we have still not found it a lot easier. My boyfriend has been a trooper but he still experiences a significant amount of discomfort during insertion and withdrawal due to the shape, and still no firm contact with the prostate.
We started to use this toy as a warm-up --not as a closer, but as an opener. Because it's not too big we've found this is a wonderful way to relax my boy's bum and get him ready for bigger things. It's also nice because it juuust ALMOST hits his prostate. It's a great way to tease him and get him excited for the next step up.
So while this toy is still never going to seal the deal for us, we've found a good use for it. I also realize now that while it wasn't long enough for us, and it had a few design issues, this is overall a great toy. I would now give it 4 stars instead of 3.
