"Novelty use only" indeed!Basically, if you're looking for a gag gift or something for a bachelorette party, this toy could be fun. If you're looking for a toy to use for more "adult" purposes rather than novelty, I say skip this one and invest in a better made toy. Also, if you're sensitive to smells, look elsewhere.
interesting to look at, flexible, glows in the dark, inexpensive
smell, too thick, texture can be sticky
The intended use of this toy is a vaginal, oral, or anal dildo. The material is soft and the toy is flexible. In fact, you can bend the shaft of this toy however you want and it will stay in that position thanks to some sort of spine like tubing inside the toy. Since this toy has no moving parts or vibrations, it would probably be great to use in the shower or other wet places. Also if you expose the toy to light for a little while, it will glow in the dark. This can make having fun with the lights out even better! Maybe a midnight game of hide and seek? If you prefer thinner toys I would steer away from this one though. I found the shaft to be a bit too wide for my tastes. Also, this toy may not be the one for you if you don't like realistic toys. This toy is mostly realistic, despite the color and lack of veins and even the testicles are wrinkly.
The material of this toy is soft and flexible. The box labels it as "Soft PureSkin Material" and claims that it "feels like the real thing". To me it didn't really feel like real skin, but more of a jelly like material. the shaft of the toy is smooth and firmer than the base with testicles. There is a "flexing vertebrae" inside of the shaft of the toy that allows the toy to be bent and stay in whatever position you put it in. The testicles are more "squishy" than the shaft and are wrinkled. I did notice a smell when I first opened the toy. It smells kind of like rubber. I hoped it would go away after sitting out a while and washing the toy, but I can still smell it even if the toy is a few feet away. When I first opened the toy I washed it and set it to "air out" a bit. The smell was so strong that I wound up putting it in the other room because it started to give me a headache. Also, after I washed the toy, the material took on a sticky texture that I can't get rid of no matter how many times I wash it. That being said, it picks up lint and hair like crazy. The shaft of this toy was thicker than I would have liked, and the sticky nature of the material was still present even after applying lube. The soft nature of the material does seem like it would be likely to tear easily, so be careful.
The "flexing vertabre" in this toy were a surprise to me, as I didn't realize the toy would bend and stay in different positions. The snapping/popping sound that the toy makes when bent makes me cringe. It kind of sounds like someone cracking their knuckles. I think the sound, along with the fact that I'm bending something penis shaped that's staying at awkward angle is what turns my stomach. The toy is purple but glows green in the dark. The glowing lasted about 5 minutes or so and if I put the toy down on the bed, the side that was touching the bed would stop glowing after a few minutes. This toy is realistically shaped (other than being purple) including wrinkly balls and a single vein running along the bottom of the shaft. There aren't any other veins on the toy and it's "circumcised" in appearance. The shaft was a bit too thick for my preferences and the testicles were too soft to give any real control when holding the toy. It's best to hold it by the bottom of the shaft to guide it easier.
One of the first things I noticed about this toy while looking at the box was that it said "Novelty use only". I know that having toys is illegal in some states so a lot of companies put this on their packaging to avoid trouble. I think with this toy, that description was pretty accurate. If you want a fun glow in the dark, purple penis for a party or something like that, then this is great. If you're looking for a dildo to "get the job done" so to speak, I would say save your money and pick something else. The smell alone was enough to make me want to drop this toy in the garbage. The glow in the dark feature, however, performed brighter than I expected and lasted about 5 minutes. The bendable shaft was a bit of a surprise. The noise it makes when bending the toy is not appealing to me. There's no suction cup on the toy, but it does look to be waterproof. The toy is also a bit on the heavy side. There was no O ring on the toy so I'm not sure if it would be harness compatible. This toy did nothing for me, even after getting warmed up with my trusty Hitachi. After playing with the toy for a while, it started to get uncomfortable, even after applying more lube. I wound up tossing this to the side and going back to my Hitachi to finish up. All and all I would say skip this toy and buy something else, unless you just want a purple dildo to look at and freak people out with in the dark.
The box claims that the toy is maintenance free. It didn't really come with any care instructions but it says on the product description that it can be cleaned with soap and water. After doing this I found the toy to be sticky. I'm not sure if dusting the toy with cornstarch would help the stickiness, or if it would even harm the toy since there are no instructions.
The toy came packaged in a cardboard box with pictures of the toy on the outside, so it was not very discreet. The toy was inside of a plastic bag, but the bag was not sealed. There were no cleaning instructions or care instructions inside. The one insert inside the box simply stated that the toy would glow when exposed to light for a little while and that it was flexible.
This was my first experience with a "PureSkin" or flexible skin-like toy. I'm not sure if this toy provided an accurate representation of these types of toys, but if it did I won't be buying another like it. I prefer my toys to be slim and have smooth finishes with materials like glass or plastic. This toy didn't really do much for me.
Follow-up commentary 5 months after original review
This toy is collecting dust somewhere at the very bottom of my reject-toy box. Can't even bring myself to try it out again. One of the worst toys I've ever used.
