The Blunderful Wonder

This thing just isn't worth the price for me. I'm calling it a dud, because no one wants to lose great stimulation 10 seconds before getting off. Your mileage may vary, and I hope someone enjoys it, but as for me, I'll probably be using the bullet more often than the prostate massager portion of the toy.

Use

This little thing is meant for prostate stimulation, though the bullet in the perineal massager area is removable and could be used for clit stimulation, and while I can't testify to to prostate massager's abilities for g-spot stimulation it might be worth a try for those not looking for anything too intense. I'm going to label this as a toy for prostate massager for beginners, as I really think that anyone who has ever lubed up and played with more than a finger won't like this thing much. It is very easy to use. Perfectly safe for anal insertion as it is a prostate massager, and even with pretty strong pushing it didn't try to slip inside all the way.

Tough the bullet can be removed and used for clit or external stimulation of the ass or whatever you wish, but I WOULD NOT insert this little bullet anywhere.

Material / Texture

This was my first true silicone toy. While it isn't made entirely of silicone (the bullet is plastic) the entire insertable portion is a moderately firm silicone. Silicone is one of the safest material for toys, as it is non porous and can be completely sterilized. Water based lubes are the ONLY recommended lubes for silicone toys, as silicone based lubes can cause loss of material integrity. This particular toy was very smooth, except for bumps on the perineal portion of the toy, which you can see in the following picture.
Perineal Bumps
No taste or smell to speak of, though the silicone was very draggy, and as odd as it may seem to mention, those with hair between your cheeks... You are really going to want to lube EVERYTHING or get rid of the hair before playing with this thing. It will pull everything you have!

This prostate massager is very flexible, as you can see here:
Flexibility

The bullet is primarily plastic, though the cap and power button are coated with silicone. Plastic rates an 8 on the safety scale, and is a non porous, pthalate-free material that can be cleaned with hot water and anti-bacterial soap or by wiping with isopropyl alcohol. You can use whatever lube you wish with plastic, though I would be careful with oil or silicone based lube around this bullet because it could potentially destroy the cap or waterproofing o-ring.

Couples, those that share toys, and ladies: You should use a condom when sharing, and ALWAYS change condoms when switching from anal to vaginal use with ANY toy to prevent horrid infections.

It should be noted that the bullet is completely removable from the toy so you can boil just the silicone portion.

Design / Shape / Size

Size and design
When I first opened it, I thought I was going to love it. It looked like so much fun. While it is shaped perfectly for hitting my prostate, I had problems with the shape. There should be more of a bulge on the back side of it to hold it in place. For the average user, it might work fine as is, but I found that with just enough lube to work it in, this toy kept slipping out.

The manufacturer measurements are:

Length:
8"
Insertable length:
3 3/4"
Circumference:
3"
Diameter:
1"

and a quick check with my fabric tape shows these to be spot on.

You could certainly travel with this, as it is kinda small, though if the TSA were to search your bag I can't think of any way you could explain it as anything but a sex toy.

Anal experts, I am recommending to steer clear of this as I would imagine it would slide out for you too, though I did enjoy it while seated.

The bullet is very well designed other than an obnoxious battery type (LR44's; it uses 3 of them) as seen in the picture here:
Annoying Battery Type

To change the batteries you just grip the top and turn it counter clockwise, then remove the old, insert the new, and twist the cap back on clockwise until tight.

Performance

As far as whether it stimulated my prostate or not, I would give it 2 thumbs up. It definitely hit the right places, and the vibrations felt GREAT. However, the fact that it slipped out several times kinda ruined the experience for me. I don't think anyone wants to be allllmost there and then lose the stimulation that was driving them wild, and at one point a cough is all it took to literally SHOOT this from my ass.

The bullet should be sold by itself for $12.99; there is no way the components cost more than 2 bucks, and as great as it feels they could sell them all day at that price. One point of note about the bullet is that you have to unscrew the top and remove a piece of paper to be able to power the unit on. No functions to speak of other than being turned on or off, but much more would have increased the size of the perineal portion of the toy, making the whole item larger.
    • Comfortable except for slipping out
    • Easy to use
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

This toy is fairly small, so you can definitely throw it in the sock drawer, a winter coat pocket, or shoebox under the bed. I keep mine in my toy drawer beside the bed, in a Ziploc to keep it from touching and of my silicone composite stuff. This toy doesn't attract lint or hair, doesn't catch fingerprints, and is very simple to clean. Wipe it off with your toy cleaner of choice and then boil it or throw it on the top rack of the dishwasher. Though I wouldn't do it when Gramma is coming over for coffee.

The silicone portion of the toy should only be used with water based lubes (and trust me, as draggy as this is, you will want lube.. this even applies to all the anal sexperts out there!)

The bullet can technically be used with any lube, but I wouldn't chance it as I see the bullet as the best part of this toy and wouldn't want to ruin the o-ring that makes it waterproof or the silicone on the power button.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The packaging this toy came in was 100% recyclable. It is just a clear plastic box with a "holder" to keep the toy stationary in the package, and a foil paper insert behind the holder to make it look more elegant.

What's it for?

Overall, as you can see in the pictures above, it's not spectacular packaging but it serves its purpose. Not really discreet at all, and the packaging wouldn't be good for anything else, so do the Earth a favor and recycle it if at all possible!

No real instructions inside the box, so figuring out that I had to remove a dot of paper from the battery compartment to get it working pissed me off. I was ready to play.

Experience

When I received my package from Eden I was pretty excited. I got this little thing out and proceeded to take my pictures for the review, then moved on to playtime. I assumed that because of its relatively small size compared to some of my other toys, I could just use a little saliva to get it in and get started, but because of the draggy surface that wasn't happening.

Fumbled around looking for the key to my "Fun Drawer", got my lube out, tried what is normally plenty for even my largest toy, and still had hell. I kid you not, my hairy assed comrades, this thing will PULL your ass hair. Lube it, lube your ass, run a finger in first, but don't try to cram this thing in dry or you will experience some tugging!

Once I finally got it lubed up enough I relaxed and started stroking myself some, getting aroused before pushing it in and getting it situated. Then, I kicked back and resumed watching my skin flick and playing... and it felt amazing. I could already feel a great orgasm building, and had only been playing for a few minutes.

Still stroking, I start flexing the PC muscles (doing Kegels) so it would rub my prostate in addition to the vibration. This thing was feeling amazing, and I had forgiven it for its trespasses against my most sensitive orifice.

7 or 8 minutes in, the porn is getting to a high point and I'm getting close... and I cough.

This thing literally SHOOTS out of my ass!

I scramble to grab it and get back to where I was, and as I'm almost there again I feel it slipping out.
I reach down one more time and push it in, this time pulling my foot up to my ass hold it in.

I finally finish and have a SPECTACULAR orgasm.... but I still can't recommend this to anyone who has ever gone much past a finger. The slipping and shooting out of my ass like a cannon ball right before I get there is unforgivable.
Follow-up commentary
When I can get it to stay put (I have to use so little lube it almost hurts putting it in) it's pretty good. I'm sticking to my recommendation that it would probably be best for newbies to prostate play!

    Your experience, made me laugh so hard, I scared the dog. lol Great review, very visual. I think I'd like it for vag play. It looks like it would be fun in a rocking chair. I think I'd wear it with panties though. lol
