So much like the real dealLone Star is by far the most realistic feeling dildo I've ever used. Its wonderfully soft, beautiful, is a generous size and feels truly incredible. But be prepared to spend more time taking care of it to preserve its wonderful qualities.
I actually gave this toy a name, Mahib. I selected the caramel version, in keeping with my unrealized fantasy of being with an Arab man, a fantasy I've had since long before 9/11. Mahib means "magnificent" or "majestic." Those adjectives perfectly apply to Lone Star.
It has only the faintest scent, one you will notice only when your nose is almost touching it.
It feels quite soft when squeezed. Its the softest dildo in my collection, even softer than Mr. Softee. But the softness doesn't hinder it being inserted. Its firm core ensures that. I estimate that the core is a third of the width of the toy. The firm part extends along the length of the dildo but only a small portion of the firm core is in the head. The head is deliciously soft.
Lone Star is a little floppy. You probably can't avoid that with a toy with such a plush, squishy feel. When holding the base in your hand, gravity pulls it so it droops down at a slight angle. If you wiggle your hand, it will wiggle back and forth in a very natural fashion.
Lone Star is a bigger than average cock, but if you think you won't be able to handle this 5 3/4 inch circumference bad boy, think again. Its very compressible and will squeeze to fit.
Sometimes toys of this size can be difficult for me to accommodate, but the Lone Star is so compressible that it fits without any discomfort. I've used this toy many times and I'm never irritated by it, despite its size. I can't say that about other toys this size.
Caring for Lone Star is a bit of a hassle. I used to wash it thoroughly before and after use, then towel dry it and wrap it in t-shirt material for storage with the rest of my toys - can't have them rubbing up against each other. After a week I noticed what looks like oil stains on the fabric. The oil spots continued to increase in size over time. Then Lone Star developed a disturbing stickiness. No amount of washing has succeeded in reducing the stickiness. Its also either losing some of its delicious softness or I'm just used to how squeezable it is now.
I wrote to Vixen Creations about this. In response I received a short email that said only "Don't wrap it. Let it air dry. Use only a water based lube." I'm going to assume its ok to continue using it since it causes no irritation.
In an effort to return it to its original non-sticky state, I tried boiling it for ten minutes. Afterwards Lone Star wasn't sticky, but only because it was covered with a fine white powder. ?! The water it was boiled in also had a considerable amount of white powder swirling in it. Once I washed Lone Star, the stickiness returned. It also has a tiny black dot on it since its been boiled that I can't remove.
So be prepared to find a place to store this where it can air out without touching cloth. This is Lone Star's one disadvantage. I find it to be a hassle to store it separately, upright so nothing touches it. I now keep it in a box in the closet. This is less convenient, but Lone Star is worth it.
I can feel Lone Star's gentle stimulation of every inch inside me. I'm often satisfied with just Lone Star, but I've found that using it followed immediately by a g-spot toy results in intense orgasms that are better than what can be achieved with either Lone Star or a g-spot toy alone. I highly recommend trying this wonderful one-two punch.
Despite the extra care Lone Star requires, it is an excellent toy that is well worth the additional maintenance. You'll find this one on my list of favorites. This won't be my last Vixskin toy. Randy, I'm looking at you.
