Realistic Dildo

While I got off to a rough start with the Hot Rod I have come to enjoy the feel of it's firm yet flexible silicone, even if it's just too big for me to fit more than half the length inside me
Published:

Develops an oily residue in storage, doesn't come in a box that works for storage

I guess you could say that for my first dildo I decided to go big; which is kind of funny since I was looking for something on the smaller side. Going off of measurements I thought I had found a good size with the Hot Rod dildo, but once I had received the Hot Rod and took it out of its package I realized I might have been wrong. Even though it’s not nearly as big as some of the other dildos I’ve looked at the Hot Rod was still quite a bit bigger than I was expecting. The first time I used this dildo I didn’t really enjoy the experience because it was just too big! I couldn’t comfortably insert much more than a third of the length regardless of how much lube I used. To say that I was frustrated would be a bit of an understatement. I wanted to be filled, instead I felt stretched and uncomfortable. In the end I was able to achieve a somewhat satisfying orgasm by using my pocket rocket vibe on my clit while having only a few inches of Hot Rod teasing my vagina. After that I thought I’d give it a rest and come back to it later, when I had more time to experiment.

Then one night when my husband was working late and I was aching for some action I decided to give it another try. This idea came purely as an afterthought while I was playing with my pocket rocket and decided that the vibrations just weren’t enough. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Hot Rod slid in fairly easily this time, most likely since I had already been using the pocket rocket. I still couldn’t get much more than half of the length comfortably inside but it was more than enough for me to be able to enjoy the realistic feeling of the silicone. While the silicone this dildo is made out of doesn’t exactly feel like skin, the softer silicone exterior wrapped over the solid inner core perfectly mimic the flexible firmness of a hard cock. Add to this the raised veining, a large base that’s easy to hold on to even during the most extreme thrusting, and the fact that silicone warms to your body and you have in your hands a dildo that feels almost as good as the real thing. This makes Hot Rod perfect for late nights alone, as long as the size doesn’t bother you.

Aside from the fact that I found Hot Rod to be just a bit too large for my liking, I also found that the silicone, while extremely realistic feeling, has a slight drawback. While the texture makes it so that lube sticks to it, it also makes it so Hot Rod develops some sort of oily residue when not in use. I don’t know if this is normal for silicone toys or if maybe it’s something that I’m using on it but it seems pretty strange to me. This oily residue washes off easily though since this dildo is easily to clean in general, being made out of silicone. Aside from the strange residue there was only one other thing I found lacking with this dildo, that being the packaging. The box that Hot Rod came in was a clear plastic box that wasn’t even big enough to fit the base of the dildo in it, making it hard to close and not exactly ideal for storage. Overall I would have to say that the Hot Rod dildo is a wonderful dildo for those wanting a large, but not giant, realistic cock to play with. And I would suggest having something else to store it in!
Follow-up commentary
In the time that I've had Hot Rod I've found some things that I don't like about it as much anymore (the material) and others that I've started to like more (the size). So overall I'd have to say that I like it about the same. While I love that this dildo is made out of body-safe silicone, I don't like how often I have to reapply lube when using it. It's like the lube just disappears, whether it slides right off, gets absorbed by my body or just simply evaporates. I do think that this could just be a problem with the lube that I own right now, though (Pink Water), so I will be continuing my search for a better water-based lube. When it comes to the size of Hot Rod, I still find this to be a large toy, even though I've started to get used to the size. I decided to pull out my sewing tape measure to see if the specs that Eden lists are accurate and what I found was a bit surprising, and also explained a lot. The 5 1/2-Inch Circumference that Eden lists is the size of the thickest part of the head of Hot Rod. The thickest part of Hot Rod, the base, actually measures 6 1/2-Inches in circumference. No wonder I thought he was so huge! In the end I'm glad that I have Hot Rod as part of my collection, and I hope that he will continue to provide me with pleasure for years to come.
