Do you like play-doh?

This toy was great in theory, but it just feel short of the mark in a few too many places. The futurotic material feels really realistic and transfers vibrations nicely but it changes its shape too easily attracts an insane amount of dirt and cooties. This toy would be an alright choice for someone who has never had penetration before and wants a toy that will only last for a few uses.

Use

The Futurotic Slimline Ballsy seemed fantastic in theory. It's a slender, realistic vibrator that seems like a great toy for beginners. Unfortunately this toy doesn't like to hold its shape very well so it ultimately ended up feeling like I was diddling with play doh.

Because this toy is so pliable and changes its shape so easily it is not very suitable for deep penetration, prolonged clitoral stimulation or g-spot stimulation. It also lacks a flared base so it would be unsafe for internal anal play. This toy works best for very shallow vaginal penetration because the toy becomes somewhat flimsy and makes insertion 'floppy' after that. The head of this toy is easy enough to use for penetration but beyond that it starts feeling like using play-doh because it can start sliding around.

This toy would work best for someone looking for a smaller toy that they only plan on using a few times; unless they're willing to go to greater lengths to keep it safe to use. This toy is very high maintenance so it wouldn't be ideal for anyone who can't commit to keeping it clean and dusting it with cornstarch all the time. Since the price of this toy is low enough, it might make an alright choice for someone who has never used a toy before and doesn't plan to keep it long term. It would make a good starter toy in that it's alright for the first few uses.

The Slimline Ballsy isn't waterproof or splashproof so it isn't safe to use around water and should be washed very carefully. It is quiet enough though so it may work for a roommate/multiple person living situation.

I was really excited about this toy because of its size, shape and design but the material and how easily it changed shape really let me down. If it was made of a safer material and held its shape a little better it could have easily been a 5 star toy. I'll probably save the vibrator portion of this toy for other uses and toss the reaslistic, futurotic sleeve.

Material / Texture

The Futurotic Slimline Ballsy has a slight rubbery taste, almost no smell and has a very realistic feel/texture. It is made of a material called Futurotic, or Realskin/cyberskin/pure skin, which is composed of thermal plastic elastomer (a mixture of PVC and silicone). Futurotic is extremely porous and is a super lint/cootie magnet.

The Slimline Ballsy has a veined texture that feels mostly smooth but it does add to the realistic feeling of the toy. This texture would be great for a beginner who has possibly never had penetration before and wants a toy that isn't intimidating and feels realistic.

Design / Shape / Size

This slender, realistic vibrator has a fantastic design. It looks like a smaller, veined penis and isn't intimidating at all. This size is perfect for someone looking for a slender vibrator that's realistic, easy to hide and discreet.

This toy is so small that is easy to hide and would probably be suitable for travel as well.

I REALLY liked the size of this toy. There aren't many decent smaller vibrators out there. This toy was slender and short enough that I could easily use it for penetration without extreme stretching or discomfort. I gave this toy 3 stars for this quality alone. If this toy wasn't so porous and a little firmer I would have given it 5 stars.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This vibrator is composed of two parts: the realistic, futurotic sleeve and the internal, removable vibrator.

The vibrations are concentated at the end of the vibrator opposite the base. The multi-speed vibrations are easily controlled by turning the dial at the base of the toy. The multi-speed dial also functions as the battery cap.

This toy operates with 2-AAA batteries that are inserted into a removable case. This case can be taken out after each use and set aside to store the batteries for later use.

This toy is only moderately noisy and could easily be drowned out by turning on music or background noise. This toy is not waterproof or splashproof and should be washed carefully.

Care and Maintenance

The Slimline Ballsy is a very high maintenance toy. It is made of Futurotic which is extremely porous. You can find more information about Futurotic material here: [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-guides-and-tips/guides/materials/futurotic]

This toy is ONLY compatable with water based lubricants and rubber friendly condoms. This toy needs to be cleaned before and after every use with warm water and antibacterial soap or toy cleaner.

The packaging recommends patting this toy down with talc after every wash but talc is linked to causing cervical cancer so I would recommend against doing that. Instead you can dust the toy with a little cornstarch before storing for later use to keep the material from becomming sticky.

This toy should be stored in a cool, dry place, probably in a ziploc baggy or a thin, cloth pouch that is undyed and lint free. This toy is a lint magnet so it's storage place should be whiped down before they make contact. Also, since this material is incompatable with so many other materials, it should not be stored with any other toys so it doesn't melt.
    • Difficult to store
    • Hard to clean
    • High maintenance

Packaging

This slender vibrator comes packaged in your standard clear plastic packaging. There is a cardboard cut out inside the packaging with a picture of a half naked woman so it probably wouldn't make a good gift box. All of the packaging is recyclable though.

Since this toy attracts lint and dirt so easily, if you washed out the plastic case it could possibly pass as a storage box. However, it wouldn't be discreet at all and will take up a lot of space.

There were minimal users instructions at the bottom of the cardboard cut out in very small font that recommend using talc (don't use it! Read care and maintenance section to see why.) to preserve the toy between uses.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

I've used this toy 2 times and probably will be throwing it away after this review is posted. The first time was to see what the toy was like and so I could start forming ideas about what to include in my review. The second time was so that I could make sure I was giving the toy a fair review. The first use was very shallow and with no thrusting whatsoever. The second use had minimal thrusting that was very shallow and with the least amount of pressure possible. The second use of this toy caused it to become permanently bent sideways. After inspecting the toy and squishing all over it with my hands, I figured out why. All you need is just minimal amount of pressure and warm hands to make this toy change its shape permanently. Needless to say I was pretty upset about this and this toy is now relegated to being a paperweight until I figure out what I'm going to do with it.

I would recommend this toy to someone who want a realistic vibrator that will only last for a few uses. After using this toy a few times, the price doesn't make it seem like a huge loss if it's thrown out. It would work well for a beginner who wants a mediocre toy that they can throw away if they decide that type of stimulation isn't what they're looking for. Basically this toy would work well for testing out if you like penetration or realistic toys.
Follow-up commentary
I threw this one away. I tried using again after it got bent during my first use and it was just awful. It was flimsy and flopped around like a dirty sock in the wind. I honestly felt like maybe it was made of silly putty or Play-Doh.
