I Dream of Pleasure

The Dream's curved design makes it an excellent G-spotting dildo. It is size is large enough to be felt without being overwhelming for the average user, and its texture is pleasantly soft while still being plenty firm enough for vigorous thrusting.
Published:
Pros:
Excellent design for G-spot stimulation; soft, but not too soft texture; very pretty.
Cons:
Unclear if it is 100% silicone; not harness compatible.

Use

The Platinum Silicone Dream is a great toy for manual G-spotting, either solo or with a partner. While the dildo does have a bit of a flare at the base, it is not enough, nor is it the right shape, to keep this pretty baby in a harness. Likewise, the flared base is a bit small to be truly safe for anal play, which is a shame because it looks as though it would be a great shape for prostate play.

Material / Texture

While "Platinum Silicone" is splashed prominently across this dildo's packaging, nowhere on the package does it say that the toy is made from 100% silicone. Since there are not many regulations governing labeling on sex toys, this means that the Dream may be made from a combination of silicone and other less expensive materials. The packaging does claim that that the toy is latex and phthalates free, which is a plus for people who are sensitive to those materials.

Regardless of what they made it from, Doc Johnson has hit on a happy combination of soft, but not too soft in this dildo. You would be hard pressed to do any damage while thrusting with this toy, but it is still firm enough that all the curves and bumps can be felt as they slide by the G-spot.

The material in the Dream is tasteless and odorless, but it is very, very pink! It is bright, vivid, barbie princess pink with a bit of a subtle sparkle to it. If you like you sex toys bright and friendly looking, you will not be disappointed by the Dream.

Design / Shape / Size

The shape and design of this dildo is where this toy really shines. The subtly bulged head, and double curve shape make G-spot stimulation all but inevitable when thrusting with this dildo. Try twisting it around a bit after you have inserted it to find the best internal position for all those bumps and curves.

At 1 1/2" in diameter with a semi-soft texture, the Dream should be a decent fit for most people. While it certainly will not satisfy the size queens out there, most women will likely find it large enough to provide some nice stimulation while not feeling overwhelming or requiring extensive warm up time.

Performance

As a manual G-spotting dildo, the Dream gives a top notch performance. As toys go, this one is a bit of a one trick pony. It doesn't vibrate. It is not harness compatible. It has no suction cups or switches or wires or settings. The lack of a flared base makes it a little dicey for anal play. But, if you like G-spot stimulation, its one trick is pretty impressive.

Care and Maintenance

The Dream is water friendly and can easily be cleaned with soap and water. The packaging also states that it is dishwasher safe. There is no mention of whether it is safe to boil or bleach this toy on the packaging. Doc Johnson does claim that this product is nonporous which means that is should be sterilizable. Of course, there is always the option of using condoms on the toy if you have concerns about the materials or are planning to share in between dishwasher cycles.

As with all silicone toys, care should be taken with silicone lubes. Some combinations of silicone toy material and silicone lube are incompatible and will cause the lube to bond instantly with the toy material creating a gummy texture that cannot be washed off. If you do want to use this toy with a silicone lube, proceed with caution. Do a spot test first, or just stick with water or oil based lubes that you can be sure will not react with this toy.

Personal comments

The Platinum Silicon Dream has almost the exact same design as my all time favorite dildo, the Tantus Squirt. The Squirt is a little bit thicker and firmer than the Dream which actually makes the Squirt quite a bit more intense than the Dream. I see the Dream as being more universally appealing than the Squirt, because the smaller size and more forgiving texture make it much less intimidating and more user friendly.

I generally require far less warm up to enjoy the Dream than the Squirt. And while I certainly will not be replacing my Squirt with the Dream, I'm happy to add the Dream to my collection. The curved design shared by both dildos is pure genius as far as my G-spot is concerned.

    I would say it is safer to assume this is NOT 100% silicone. I did look at the site and it says 100% phalate free which would mean it didn't have lower quality materials in it.

    Hi Lauren. I agree that it is probably not 100% silicone. The fact that they make a fuss about it being "platinum silicone" and 100% phthalates free makes me think it is significant that they don't say that it actually is 100% silicone. I did send an e-mail to Doc Johnson to ask, but I haven't heard back from them. It is the holidays, though, so I am willing to cut them a little slack. I'll update if I hear back from them.

    It is 100% silicone. If you look at the little booklet in the packaging, it says:

    "Platinum is a 100% platinum-based silicone brand, made in the USA."

    If they tell you otherwise though, I'm surprised.

    Great review, though.

    That's good to know, Sir. The one I received didn't include a booklet. I was just reading the outer packaging.

    After thinking about it, I have to conclude that the sentence, "Platinum is a 100% platinum-based silicone brand, made in the USA." doesn't actually say that the Dream is a 100% silicone toy. Technically, I believe that it just says that the silicone in the toy is "100% platinum-based." (platinum being one of the metals that can be used to cure silicone, it doesn't imply It a quality level). It could be that the Dream is made from 100% silicone, but I don't think that Doc Johnson actually makes that claim. I think that they imply that it is all silicone, but the absence of a clear statement to that effect makes me think it is not true.

    Also, it has now been several weeks since I e-mailed Doc Johnson to ask if the Dream was 100% silicone, and I have received no answer. I assume that means I am not going to get a reply, but I will update if that changes.

    Basically, I don't think that anyone should assume that this toy is made form 100% silicone.

    Great review! If you're willing to risk the toy to find out, I believe there's a "flame test" that can be done to see if it's really 100% silicone. I'm not clear on the details, but Carrie Ann has done it. I think it involves holding a (lit) lighter/match up to the corner, and if it doesn't catch fire it's 100% silicone? Better ask her about it, though.

    Also, try asking them through EdenLink, since they haven't responded to emails.

    I don't have this exact toy but I just got another product in Doc Johnson's Platinum Silicone line, and I did a flame test on the bottom of it, and it didn't melt. There was just a little soot, like what happens on silicone toys, but no melting or softening of the material *at all*. I feel confident that my toy is silicone (like any other toy listed as silicone) and I'd bet that "silicone dream" one is, too.
