Style and FunctionIn a new world of eco-friendly Apple-esque sex toys, the Colt is a bit of a throwback. It is much more Castro or Christopher Street than Seattle or Simi Valley. I like that. It is clearly a sex product, not a medical product. I like that too, and it does the job. It isn't my dream product, but I am pleased.
The bulb is thick, somewhat rough, rubber, kind of like what you might expect to find in an auto-parts store. The nozzle is seamless, remarkably-comfortable-to-insert, hard plastic. The Colt holds a modest, but useful amount of water. The nozzle has an adjustable flow tip, a nice touch, though one that admittedly only barely alters the spray. The Colt breaks down quickly for cleaning and assembles easily for use. That said, it comes apart so easily, that I found myself reattaching the nozzle once or twice during regular use-not a problem, but certainly a bit of a drawback to consider.
The long ribbed-neck nozzle certainly conveys the sexual function, which is kind of nice. For me at least, the cleansing process is less of a thrill than a necessary chore, and I appreciate anything that makes me feel less like I am communing with the grandparents or starring in an ad for Metamucil, without presenting itself as so sleazy or so sexist that it would be a turn-off. A nice balance. I can't say that I even felt the ribs though.
If I have any worries they mainly are to do with the rubber bulb. It seems heavy-duty enough, but also rough enough that it will probably require extra steps to clean it...an issue which makes me long for a nice silicone rubber bulb which I could throw into boiling water or the dishwasher. Over all, I would say that the construction is better than expected, and I expect it will last.
If you want a retro-style functional douche, this fits the bill. If you are looking for something with eco Apple looks, I would suggest you look elsewhere.
