I'm totally not going to make that joke here.

Yes, the silver glitter is quite Twilight. Bleh. Aside from that, Leo is quite the perfect catch. He's well-endowed in a more natural sense. Realistic in feel and slightly so in look. Nothing about this handsome fellow is overdone. His base functions as a wonderful suction cup, but also makes harness play a dream. Leo and I are the best of friends. Not to mention, who doesn't love super shiny, glittery dildos? A major win.

Use

(Yes, I got the silver glittery one. No, not because of some teen-oriented vampire romance drama book/movie series, and I'm quite ashamed that it resembles something of that sort. Moving on . . .)

Oh Leo, when it comes to perfect dildos you might just be the one . . .

Ladies and gents, let me introduce you to one of the most splendid "realistic" dildos on the market. Do you often find yourself creeped out by those toys out there that look like Lorena Bobbit got to them? I don't know about you, but that whole disembodies penis thing creeps me out a little. If I wanted it to look like the real thing, well . . . I'd get the real thing. Then there are those times I want it to feel like the real thing, like when I'm conjuring up some explicit mental images of something of that sort. That's where Leo comes in.

What you get here is a realistic feel without the creepy "someone chopped a penis off" look to it. Leo is impressive in it's design while still maintaining a charming look, and these are things I highly appreciate. As a toy snob I like things that look pretty and offer some sort of interesting function. I can get my kicks without feeling like a creep. (Not to offend anyone that's into the realistic thing. Just not my style.)

Leo loves boys, girls, and boy-girls. This is something great for your sexy fantasy time, romps with a lover, or to strap on so you can become the one with the impressive glittery cock. I know if I was a man that this is exactly what I would want mine to look like (again, no vampire jokes here). Vaginas? Sure! Perfect! Leo's got a little curve for that. Butts? Why the hell not! You've got that super flared base there. Harnesses? It's perfect! Sticking it to the man, wait, the wall? Hey, that flared base that makes strap-on and anal play safe is also a rather awesome suction cup. Sharing all the fun with friends? Go right ahead! Leo is made of a high-quality silicone so you can just plop it in a pot of boiling water without any worries of germs and icky things.

Material / Texture

Silicone! Hooray! Anyone who knows anything about toys knows the wonders of this material. Easy to clean, durable, hygienic, and user friendly. Can you get any better? Nope! It's plushy, somewhat close to lifelike, won't put a hurtin' on your cervix, and is just plain amazing. I don't think there's a single soul out there who can't appreciate all of these things, really.

Leo is made of Vixen's high quality silicone. This certainly isn't one of those sketchy "silicone" dildos that's only made of a small percentage of it. It's the real deal and that's why they're a highly respected company in the toy snob world. It's the right amount of firm while still being the right amount of flex. It may be a little bit tacky because it's so irresistible that even lint can't help but be attracted to it, but a tiny dab of lube gets everything super smooth.

There isn't too much texture to this lovely thing here. It's got a silky glide all the way through. The tiny lifelike ridges right below the head add a small amount of realism, but they're nothing your insides will notice. It only really becomes apparent if you're giving it a hand job. All in all, this is one slick dude.

Design / Shape / Size



Look at it. It's pretty! It sparkles so brilliantly in the sun! (No, again, not another Twilight joke.) The glitter is quite vibrant in the slightly cloudy silicone. It produces somewhat of a shimmer effect. Tucked away in a toybox for storage? I don't think so! This one deserves to shine!

Leo is very well endowed in a realistic sense. He's no average fellow in that department. A lengthy 8" from head to base. Not only does he have that going for him, but that 1 5/8" diameter means he's got a lot going on in the girth department too. I highly appreciate that he is no whopping monster, but still impressive taking more of a realistic higher end of the size spectrum. I'm a tiny lady, so I'm no size queen, but he totally comes in and cranks up the party level.

Design wise, there's a lot of good going on. Slightly more realistic than the other silicone dildos of his family, he's more than just a head and shaft. You can see in the photo that he's got some skin-like ridges just beneath the head. I was sitting here contemplating what this was actually like and the best way I could find to explain it is that he's half-cut. Maybe? I like that this small detail is enough to make him stand out, but not be creepy. No veins or super details here. There's also a moderate amount of a curve in the shaft. Again, more realistic than exaggerated. It provides mild G-spot stimulation without it being unnatural. The flared base is quite versatile, as well! To sum it up, natural perfection.

Performance



And this is Leo sticking to my not very smooth wall with the awesome powers of his secret suction cup. Awesome, right? Needless to say, he didn't hang on for too long. Maybe 5 minutes, but come on, it's a textured wall! This suction cup is one of those that you can set on the counter after your done washing everything and you'll have to tug a little to get it back up. That's some quality right there! In the shower? Perfect. Mirrors? Yep. Basically you're good with any smooth, flat surface. More suction? Add a little bit of water. Leo doesn't offer a death grip, but he does like to be reliable in this department.

Performance in the insertion department? Wonderful! He may be quite the impressive fellow, but he's such a down to earth, realistic guy. His cousin, Mistress, is a little on the average of the realistic size spectrum, but Leo teeters on the top edge. The curve is quite a natural one. He's no Pure Wand, so you get the most organic form of G-spot stimulation. As with all silicone, he's slippery when wet even though there's that classic and common tackiness to the material.

The flared base strikes again in the win department. I'd have to say that it's perfect for harness use! You may need to find another O-ring if yours is on the smaller side (which is usually 1 1/2" in diameter) but most of those stretch, so you may still be able to work it out depending on the give of yours. The base is also 3" wide and moderately thick which means it offers a great level of stability. If your harness is made of patent leather and solid on the front (meaning without the hole) like the Aslan Pleasure Principle Deluxe I have, then the base even adds some suction so it doesn't get all wobbly.

And, to make things even better, the base means you can stick it in your butt. Fun times for everyone!!!

Care and Maintenance

Silicone is the easiest flexible material to care for, and also the most hygienic. Boil for a few minutes and it's totally sanitized for your sharing pleasure. Wash with antibacterial soap and water, or some lovely toy cleaner and you're also good to go here. No need for condoms or any of that awkwardness. Share the love!

The only downside to silicone is that you can't use the super slippery silicone lubes. It's always a shame because those are usually the best for extended play situations. Only the slightest of downsides, really. With water-based lube silicone is generally incredibly slick, so you're good to go with a little dab of that.

Now, Leo and I need to have a talk about this whole lint and fuzz thing. He's quite attractive to them. Sometimes I'll finish washing him and set him down and the next time I pick him up he's all fuzzy. I do feel the need to wash him before use because of this. (I have a fluffy cat, so cat hair is already on EVERYTHING.) Storage wise, it's good to use a plastic bag or box to keep him away from all the fuzziness.

One slight detail you may want to pay attention to while cleaning is that little ridge under the head. Not the most complicated thing in the world, but sometimes it takes a very slight amount of TLC.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

I really love Vixen's packaging. All of their products come in a clear tube with caps on the end. Great for that lint-free storage solution.
    • Good for storage
