Johnny Grows UpI learned that Johnny can hold a place in my heart as a solid cock and deliver in different ways that surprised me. Although, initially I was taken aback by him, I have moved on from it and enjoy Johnny with my lover for all his pleasure. It took me a while, but I know that Johnny can indeed stand on his own - even as a "gawky teenager".
Although, I was initially turned off to Johnny, I found that he has a great purpose in specific positions, play, and fun. He took a bit to grow in my eyes, and I am confident that beginners to intermediate users will enjoy him a great deal while experienced users may be left a little wanting in the girth and firmness departments and may opt for another Vixen product or fall in love with his "spot specialist" design.
This toy can and should be used by anyone who wants it. Just a word to the wise: Johnny can be a bit unruly in motion and fumble at satisfaction at first, but with some time, most people with find they love it, like it or leave it.
I like it.
After my shock passed, I could see the staple VixSkin material. Non-porous, little to no odor, and all the things I like. When you buy a VixSkin, you buy a long-term commitment. The material lasts, it's easy to clean and it's ready out the box. No need to air this cock out from a gross smell.
Overall, the toy delivers in realism. The texture of the shaft with retracted foreskin ripples and veins make for some great sensations. Additionally, as with all Vixskin products, there is a physical weight to the material and texture that just makes sex - whether solo, with a partner, or group - better. Coupled with the curved design of the Johnny, you have a toy that puts firm pressure in all the right places.
I feel confident that a beginner could hop on this and take it, but whom or whatever is in control of it needs to be aware. I scoped out the Johnny in person at my local shop before buying, and I found that the actually firm or softness, bend-ability or none, varied from each cock. There was no consistency. I'll go more into that in the next section.
I recommend if you are wearing or using the Johnny to first hold the base of it in your hand and just thrust it and see how it moves at different speeds. If yours a little more ridged, you can be a little more wild and uninhibited with your motions. If yours flops too much for your liking, it is what the cock is going to do when you are hammering away. Either get used to adjusting or find a position that works for you. Slowing down cuts on the flop, so feel free to make a slow jam session out of it; I'm sure no one will mind.
I covered some design stuff in the section above, but Johnny definitely has more things to talk about.
I feel like Johnny is the wayward little brother of Lonestar, but better looking in that awkward tall, bigger kid kinda way. He's "taller" - meaning his length is about an inch longer than Lonestar. Aesthetically, his features are more chiseled. His head and foreskin details are much more intricate as are his more pronounced and realistically placed veins. The head of this cock is beautifully thick. Oh - his balls are bigger. The testicles are a huge step up from the Lonestar's set. They are much more domed with great detailing on the scrotal sac. I think the biggest improvement is the squeeze-ability. The balls are firmly soft to the touch. Slowly but surely, the balls are progressing towards a more realistic look and feel that's on par with the cocks they are attached to. The base was also redesigned to be a bit slimmer and fits much more comfortably in my Spareparts Harness.
However, my Lonestar has not been usurped by Johnny as my main cock, (I'll cover that in the review of the Buck ), because, much like a little brother, Johnny has not quite gotten it to the level of his big bro. Johnny's girth is a little slim for my tastes, and the tastes of my girth-ed size queen lover. It doesn't impact its performance too much because the weight and curve of him should fill you right up where his shaft doesn't. Like I said before, he is a little difficult to handle at times, depending on if you got the Johnny in extra-flexible.
For most people, the Johnny should satisfy. For others, it will take some trick handling, maybe some back bends, a deeper position, a pillow, or a Liberator wedge to feel that extreme sense of fullness and satisfaction.
It's suitable for travel. I recommend a pouch or a bag for your toy if you aren't too keen on traveling with a cock floating around in your bag. Plus, it keeps it from picking up too much lint.
It does not suction. I just tested it to be sure.
It is harness compatible. I would say anything with an O ring that expands to about 2" should work with Johnny. I use mine with the Spareparts Joque Harness.
What is not so great:
I think the flexibility may be a turn off for some or not enough satisfaction for others. It's really a cock that shines in specific tasks. Let's dub it a specialist, but for overall fun, I would definitely defer to another cock.
What is great!:
The flexibility is a dual edge. It can be bad, but it can be great if you are looking to discreetly pack for a night on the town. Its bend-ability and overall design is much more satisfying to pack and play with than the Goodfella. The thick head makes for some great stimulation and catches at just the right spot in either hole. The defined veins make for a great sensation both vaginally and anally.
I pull out my electric tea kettle, boil some water and pour myself a cup of tea then pour the rest of the water over my cock to clean and sterilize it. A good five minutes is all it takes to have a clean toy and a perfectly steeped cup of tea.
When I am just doing a quick clean, hot water and soap and water should do the trick.
I let them air dry and then store them up right on what I have dubbed my "sex shelf". I've got my cocks on display, gloves, and lubes.
Speaking of lubes, when typically doing anal play, I have a condom on, so I use silicone lubes, like Swiss Navy Silicone, but use them very rarely directly on my cock. So use the "100% silicone toys with silicone lube" theory at your own discretion. However, all other times, I switch between bare-backing it with a water based lube or using a condom, and Johnny has taken very well to both. I would say it has taken much better to bare-backing with lube and thinner condoms since you can feel every glorious ridge.
It's a simply packed cock in plastic box with Vixen logo. You know, there may be instructions, but I feel like an "insert here, here, and here" diagram would suffice.
Not only is his added length convenient for tighter spaces like shower sex or doggie style, Johnny has rightfully taken the mantle in these sexual endeavors: Long term packing and playing (like dancing), Puppy Play, Double Penetration with both worn and handheld.
I came back to this review and really thought about how I have enjoyed Johnny for the total package and not let my initial reaction dictate my review. That is why I decided to give Johnny 4 stars: because he really does open up doors once you give him a chance.
Finally, I can pitch in the shower.
