Johnny Thrives on Competition - "That one's is a keeper!"In a world crowded with contenders, VixSkin Johnny is a standout product. If you could only keep one dildo in your dresser - this might very well be the one you'd choose. I know the price is high - but there is enough value here to justify the cost. I expect to get way more than 100 orgasms out of this toy - so ask yourself if you'd pay a $1 for an orgasm in a world of $10 lattes!
Oh Johnny - what a journey! First I had to decide if paying $99 for VixSkin version is worth the extra cost vs. the original Johnny made of conventional silicone for just $70 (now on sale for $56). My wife answered that question one night when she complained that our Tantus Maverick is too hard - VixSkin it would be!
Next I had to choose between the very highly rated Lone Star vs. Johnny. In spite of many respected reviewers recommending the Lone Star - I opted for Johnny because of his pronounced g-spot curve.
Then when Johnny finally arrived - it was time for the real competition to commence! It was the new kid on the block vs. an improved Tantus Maverick (prior review [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-toy-reviews/dildos/smooth-operator-1]) that I had drilled out and added a vibrator to (see the mods here [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-forum/using-sex-toys/how-to-techniques/diy-enhance-the/]) and the cheap - but very effective Crystal Jellies Ballsy Royal (prior review [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-toy-reviews/dildo-harnesses/getting-more-than-your-money-s-worth]).
I figured a picture of the trio would help you visualize my comparative review - but I haven't had much luck formatting pictures for display - but here's a link to a picture on Photobucket: [http://s1176.photobucket.com/albums/x327/gunsmoke11/?action=view¤t=IMG_20110228_133554.jpg]
There is apparently no way to do a table - so here's me 2nd try at presenting the comparison:
Advantages; High quality silicone, Girthy - but smooth, Added vibrator is useful
Disadvantages; Hard - old-style silicone, too straight not easy to hit the g-spot, still too hard
Crystal Jellies Ballsy Royal
Advantages; Girthy sumptuous soft feel, well formed head & stimulating texture, Good length for a-spot stimulation
Disadvantages; Reeks of cheap jelly plasticizer, ridge can hit the pelvic bone, no g-spot curve, no need to add vibe - but I might for fun!
Advantages; Girthy sumptuous soft feel, pronounced g-spot curve, large enough for a vibe retrofit but do I dare drill a 5/8" hole in a $100 toy?
Disadvantages; Minimal texture, barely long enough for a-spot stimulation
As you can tell we like all three - but she loves Johnny! If it were textured like the Crystal Jellies and was about 1/2" longer it would be perfect! The bottom line is that Johnny feels the most realistic except that it provides the girth that so few of us have. There is an EF question around asking what is more important to a woman - length or girth - by far girth was the winner in that poll is girth at 64% followed by both another 33% - only 3% voted for length [http://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-forum/everyday-sex/sex-in-general/women-prefer-length-width/].
So the bottom line is Johnny gives her the girth that I cannot - I'm just glad she doesn't have to go off the reservation to fill the desire!
I don't cover much about the mundane - but here it is; the dimensions are as advertised, it arrived on time, packaging was adequate, clean-up is a snap - and there is no doubt the first time you pick it up the quality is outstanding. With reasonable care I expect Johnny to be giving my girl orgasms for many years to come.
It's too big for either of us to consider taking it anally but the materials and balls make it safe to do so - although it's pretty soft and it may prove hard to get in unless your already opened up and relaxed.
If I've left anything out - I'll be checking your comments and will add whatever you need.
Since the kids have gotten older my wife has grown fond of being more vocal during orgasm - as have I. The first night out for Johnny we were getting in a relative quickie before our daughter came home from work. So after getting her to relax a bit I lubed up Johnny and he slid in smooth and easy - the soft texture of the VixSkin makes it behave smaller than it is. Once inside Johnny hits all the right spots and in no time I'm crashing the shaft balls deep with nothing left to give! All of the other dildos have 1/2-1" 'left over' when they are inside to the maximum she finds comfortable. I may have to take the advise of several guys on EF recommending the VixSkin Outlaw - stay tuned!
The VixSKin material is luxurious. In spite of Johnny's ample size it is very comfortable. I had read many reviews that recommended the Lone Star over Johnny because Johnny is 'too floppy'.
We couldn't be happier we chose the Johnny instead. The curve of Johnny is great for women who love deep A-spot stimulation. We even found that turning Johnny so that it points down gave my wife great PFE-zone (posterior fornix erogenous zone) orgasms as well.
I cannot be more emphatic about how much we love this toy. If she wants something hard it's the Njoy Eleven - if its something soft 98% of the time its Johnny.
Buy one as quickly as you can!
