Bats in the Cave

The Leo by Vixen is simply worth the purchase due to its premium silicone and sleek, but effective design. The subtle G-spot curve and firm, but flexible silicone feel just right without being overbearing. The mild texture is perfect for P-spot or G-spot stimulation, and the average size makes it a great middle-ground dildo for any user.

Use

The Leo is a perfect dildo for those looking for a realistic, harness compatible dildo with a good, average girth and length. The Vixen silicone is of incredible quality and is offered in a broad range of colors that are bound to satisfy most tastes. It wouldn't be ideal for beginners to pegging or vaginal penetration, but the slight curve in the shaft is fantastic for softly stroking along the G-spot during vaginal intercourse. The material make it fine for taking along in the shower or bath, and the suction cup attaches awesomely to most surfaces so you can ride hands free.

Material / Texture

If you aren't familiar with silicone, Vixen Creations is a great place to start. Their silicone is premium quality and is completely latex and phthalate free. It isn't porous at all, though most silicone does like to pick up stray hairs, lint, and dirt laying around surfaces it's laid on. This cock isn't any exception and loves to pick up cat hair or anything small enough to stick to the surface.

Overall, it's a very smooth surface with a good amount of drag and will work well with lube to slip in and out easily. I like that the texture has a bit of give and isn't as firm as some of my other silicone dildos. I find that it definitely wouldn't be considered a softer toy, but it's easily manipulated to bend and tuck however you'd like it to.

Design / Shape / Size

The size of Leo was intimidating for me at first, but it's a great fit once you adjust to it. It's more on the average size than anything, but up against my Mistress and O2 Mark, it's definitely a stretch. The base is fairly average sized and makes this toy safe for anal usage, and it hasn't given me any trouble in my RodeoH harness or Minx.



The length of the Leo is 8", but only 7" is insertable, which is a very nice amount. The circumference is 5 1/4", with a diameter of 1 5/8", which is a bit more than I'm used to but still on the average side of endowment. One of the best features of this toy is that the silicone thickens on the underside of the shaft, which is minimal in use, but I love the detail given in that area for oral. It's also reasonably nice for prostate stimulation for a user who would be more used to this size. There's a definite attention to realism in the model of this toy and the head has several ridges and folds of skin the way a real cock would. The shaft is also curved ever so slightly to give it a realistic feeling during use against the G-spot.

This toy is realistically phallic and isn't discreet, even if purchased in one of the less realistic color choices. When looking at the design of the bats on the surface, I noticed some of the wings are faded out and already look as if they're fading away. One of the bats near the base is barely printed on and fades out completely in some areas. This is due to a design choice by Vixen and the bat print should be safe from fading with use over time. Other reviews stated the bats looked as if they were embedded inside the shaft, but are in fact, just printed onto the shaft underneath the outer layer of silicone. This means that during use, the constant friction won't wear away the design over time.

Performance

This dildo worked great in multiple harnesses for me and was a breeze to insert and take out. I haven't used the suction cup much, but I tested it out before reviewing and it seemed to hold tightly to a table top without wetting it first. Overall, I think the balance of it being so bendable while still maintaining the firmness it needs for great G-spot stimulation felt awesome during use and just in general. My partner didn't need to constantly re-adjust it when inserting or in the harness, and it isn't so firm that I felt like my cervix was getting a beat down during rough sex. The texture of the head feels really good when being inserted and when rubbed against the G-spot slightly.

I found the size to be something to take adjusting to, but if you like a nice, average size, you won't be disappointed. This was a little too big for me at first and I had to use something a bit smaller to warm up first, but that's mostly because I haven't been used to a lot of penetration as of late. I wouldn't recommend this size for a beginner to dildos and penetration/pegging, but it's a nice inbetween for those solo days where I want something middle ground. I loved this product for use solo and with my partner, and definitely think it's worth purchasing in the glitter version I've had my eye on for a few weeks. My partner loved the bat design and the general shape and size, as well. We've both used it on one another and have the same experience, which has been a good one.

This photo is of the Leo in my RodeoH panty harness:



It's a 2" O-ring embedded in the harness, which fit the Leo nearly perfectly. It didn't move around at all during use in the O-ring and wasn't too heavy so that the harness pulled away from my body.

Care and Maintenance

Silicone is extremely easy to care for due to its non-porous nature and that there's quite a few options for cleaning.

You can:
Stick it in the dishwasher
Take it in the shower/bath tub
Clean it with a toy wipe before/after use
Use antibacterial toy cleaner
Use antibacterial soap/water
Boil it for 3-5 minutes
Use a 10% bleach solution


All of these methods are successful and will keep your Leo shining as good as new. It does love to gather lint and I've included a photo of just how much lint if you don't believe me!



Something important to remember is that silicone toys are not compatible with silicone lube. Oil and water based lubes are perfectly okay to use with the material, as they won't melt and destroy it when it contact with any kind of silicone.

Packaging


I've collected a lot of Vixen's clear tubes that this product comes in. It's roughly 8" tall and has two pop off plastic lids that take a little bit of effort to get on and off. I find that squeezing the sides of the tube to get the lid on/off is the easiest way. It's an air tight seal, so that's what makes the lids so annoying in the process of trying to put your toy in or take it out. I like the packaging, mostly because it's unique and one of a kind. It isn't the most space-saving technique to package a toy, but I find that the containers can be usable for storing other things if you don't mind that the Vixen stamp can be seen on the side.

The packaging isn't all discreet, as it clear displays your toy for all the world to see. It gives you a little bit of information on Vixen on the side and there's not much else to it than that.

Experience

As ridiculous as it may sound, my partner and I bought this for "Halloween Sex," and paired it with my RodeoH Panty Harness, which is black. She was completely amused by the design and I have to give it to Vixen for not only including this dildo in a glitter choice, but also, Bats! I've had my eye on the glitter for quite some time, but when the orange came into stock, it was a must have. I think it may be too whacky for some to use that often, but I think the design makes for a really quirky toy to add to the collection.

Follow-up commentary
I still love the unique design of this dildo and its flexibility. It's overall just a wonderful model for those who are in-between sizes and don't want something too large, but smack dab in the middle. It's a really comfortable dildo to use both personally and in a strap on, and I use it often still.
