My eyes were bigger than my- er...

All in all, we really like this toy. The texture is a bit extreme, and can make the user a bit sore... But that's the only con we can think of. It's realistic looking (well, except for the color), easy to take care of, has a great feel to it, and can be used many different ways. And, to top it all off, it's really affordable!

Use

This towering specimen of veined splendor, produced by Doc Johnson, has quite a few uses. It can be used for vaginal, anal, or even oral penetration. It's rigid enough that there won't be any struggle during insertion- unless the problem is the girth. It is a rather thick dildo, and may prove to be too much for some users.

Because it is vac-u-loc, it can be mounted on any number of bases, including male and female harnesses, suction cups for wall (or ceiling, if you like playing pranks on your guests) mounting, ball riders, and other miscellaneous plugs. Not only can it be used with a wide array of vac-u-loc bases/mounts, but it is also o-ring compatible!

Also, if none of those appeal to you, the opening in the base of the dildo is large enough to fit a bullet, if you so desire. Though, it is deeper than a typical bullet, so that can be a bit tricky. I almost lost one of my favorite bullets inside the dildo while I was experimenting.

Material / Texture

It is composed of silicone, making it easy to heat and cool for potential temperature play, and it warms to body temperature with ease. I did not notice any smell or taste when I opened it, and the material doesn't seem to hold any odors or flavors either. Because it is silicone with no electrical aspects, it is completely waterproof.

This is not the type of silicone that can be described as velvety, though. It, like many materials like this, has grip to it, so lube is absolutely necessary (unless using it in water) to prevent injury. Since this toy is silicone, it should only be paired with water based lubricants. Contact with silicone, oil, or hybrid (silicone/water) based lubricants could potentially result in damage to the material, which could make it unsafe to use.

This dildo is smooth in some areas, and veined in others for a more realistic appearance. While some people may find lots of texture to be pleasurable, I find the texture to be a bit too extreme. As is the case with real penises, there is a larger vein that goes down the top of the dildo, with smaller veins branching off. The larger vein is approximately 3-4mm tall, and the smaller veins are approximately 1-2mm tall. That much texture (or surface height difference) can leave the orifice it was used on feeling rather raw and battered for some users.

This product is more rigid than flexible. You have to swing it around pretty hard to get the thing to flop. Also, your partner or anyone nearby will look at you like you've lost your mind if you are just sitting there, violently swinging around a brightly colored cock. Just thought I'd share that bit of experience.

Design / Shape / Size

The Original Vac-u-loc dildo is modeled to look similar to a real (human) penis, though the head is a bit more bulbous than I've ever seen. It has the mushroom tip, veins, and even that beautiful little cleft on the underside of the tip. It has a flared base, making it compatible with both vac-u-loc bases and o-ring harnesses.

The full length of the dildo is 8" long, with 7.5 insertable inches. It has a circumference of 5 1/4" (a diameter of 1.5"). Overall this is a pretty girthy toy, and long, too! I am by no means inexperienced, but even I found this toy to be a bit intimidating!

Performance

Overall, I think this this dildo works really well. The flared base works rather nicely as a handle/grip during use, whether you're using it on yourself or a partner. Sadly, we don't have any harnesses yet, so I can't honestly say how well the Original Vac-u-lock works with a harness or other base.

When a bullet is inserted into the opening of the base, the vibrations travel through the length of the shaft wonderfully because of its somewhat firm material. One person suggested that you insert the bullet into a condom before inserting it into the dildo, to make retrieval after use easier. Without some way to remove the bullet, it could be stuck inside the dildo permanently, because the inner opening is deeper than a bullet is long.

This dildo is a bit long, and most women (myself being one of them) may not be able to take the full length of it. Because it is long and thick, it does give the user a wondrously full feeling. Also, the texture does add some extra stimulation during thrusting, but- like I said before- can prove to be too much for some users.

Because the toy is so long and somewhat rigid, one has to be careful when thrusting as to not push too hard or too deep, because they could potentially injure themself or their partner.

Care and Maintenance

With silicone toys, there are many different ways to clean them.
For regular cleaning, you can wash it with warm water and antibacterial soap or toy cleanser, run it through the dishwasher on the top rack (without detergent), or wipe it down with toy wipes. I feel that because of how textured this toy is, wipes probably wouldn't be the best option, because it would be easy to miss the depressions and crevasses when just wiping it down.

For more thorough cleaning (sterilization), the toy can be boiled for 3 minutes or washed with a bleach solution of 10% bleach, 90% water.

Storage is easy, since there is no need to worry about batteries (or removing them) and parts. Although I personally have no experience with melting toys, I get the impression that the best way to store them is in in their own little lint-free pouches. Not only does this prevent them from coming into contact with each other (which has the potential to be harmful to the toys), but it also prevents them from gathering lint and dust and animal hair.

Packaging

Although the packing does not have pictures of naked women (or men) gazing lustfully at the dildo, it doesn't leave anything to the imagination. The packaging is simply clear plastic around the dildo, standing proud and erect, in front of a sheet of paper that lists information about the product within.

Other than the informative sheet of paper (that serves as a backdrop for the dildo), there are no instructions or anything. You simply pop open the plastic buttons that hold the casing shut, and viola! Here's your new dildo.

The packaging definitely isn't worth keeping, but at least it's recyclable!

Personal comments

It really is important to know your comfort zone when it comes to size. As is the case with all toys, it depends on your body and preferences. Not everyone will like this dildo, nor will everyone dislike it. It's all a matter of YOU and YOUR wants and needs.

Experience

Up until the purchase of this product, we had never owned a dildo. I decided that a realistic dildo would not only make a great gift for my partner (v-day gift, that is), bit it would probably work really well as our next step to overcoming my mental block.

I was looking for something similar to my partner in size, and finally settled on this toy. It's a bit longer than him, but I figured the extra length would serve well as a handle/grip. I wasn't sure about the girth because usually when he's hard, measurements are NOT my main interest. The "View Actual Product Size" feature gave me the impression that it was about the right size, so I ordered it!

When it arrived in the mail, I immediately tore into the box and excitedly retrieved my new toy, only to stare shocked and wide-eyed at how big it was! It's about the same size as my partner, maybe a quarter inch thicker and a half inch longer, but good grief! I guess a human penis of that size is less intimidating than a bright pink, opalescent version.

Now, like I said, this was supposed to be a v-day gift for my partner, but I was just so excited that when I heard his key in the door, I bounded toward him, big pink dildo in hand. I'm sure it was quite a surprising (and possibly terrifying) sight! Of course, the first thing my partner did was stick his finger in the hole in the base... And get it stuck!

We had a good laugh over that, and then set it aside for the evening. Sadly, he was far too tired to try it out that day. The next day, though, we gave it a whirl!

My partner took control of the dildo while I worked the Gigi on my clit. He slowly, gently pushed it into me, smiling as he watched my body take it. After about a minute, I suggested that he flip the toy over so the veined side was down, because the bumps and ridges were making me ache a bit. He did so, and it was an immediate improvement.

Quietly, we focused on the task at hand, him slowly thrusting the artificial cock into me while I rubbed around and around my clit. I squirmed as I felt myself getting closer to climax, and he stroked himself in excitement. As I felt myself going over the edge, I simply said "Now!" and he threw the dildo aside and pushed himself into me, just as I spasmed and pulsed in ecstasy.

That was the first time I'd EVER been able to have an orgasm with a male's penis inside of me.
Despite the fact that this dildo is a bit larger than expected and textured enough to be uncomfortable, we really do love it, because it's helped us make another step, another bit of progress toward overcoming my mental block.
Follow-up commentary
This is definitely a large toy, and absolutely not for beginners! I still think it's kindof huge, but most users should find it to be manageable.
I think the veins/ridges are a bit too pronounced (I have never seen a penis that heavily/extremely veined!), and the head could stand to be a bit smaller... But other than that, it's great for masturbation and maybe even partner play.
