The Naked Lady

This lovely dildo is perfect for beginners and intermediate players. She can be a bit floppy and requires a firm hand. Vaginally, she's great when you find a position that works for you. Anally is where Raquel really shines, and where she blew this reviewer away.

Use

This lovely lady feels fabulous in every orifice. Vaginally she's slim enough for an adventurous beginner, but girthy and long enough for the intermediate player. The bulbous, squishy head feels great as it rubs against the G-spot. Anally, she feels so realistic that it literally blew my mind. I was simply speechless. I don't have a prostate, but I can only imagine how great her pliant head would feel. She can be used in the shower, tub, in bed, on the floor, on the couch, the kitchen, wherever you want (with a certain amount of discretion). With Raquel's suction cup base, she can be stuck to the shower wall or the bottom of the bath tub (my personal fave). She does have a tacky feel to her but that can rectified with some water-based lubricant.

*Be careful handling Raquel, because she can "bruise" easily.

Material / Texture

Raquel's lovely body is made from 100% platinum silicone. Silicone rates a 10 on the Eden Safety Scale. Silicone is a fabulous material and Vixen Creations has come up with a mind blowing formula. Raquel is made of two different densities of silicone; the outer layer and the inner core. The outer layer is made up of the squishiest and most pliant silicone I've ever felt. The inner core is made of a firm, but extremely pliant, silicone. The firmer silicone makes up the base as well. To the touch, Raquel has a tacky, almost sticky, feel to it. When she's lubed up with water-based lube, she's extremely slick.

The feel of the two silicones is very hard to describe. The bulbous head is exclusively the softer silicone. After that, the softer silicone covers the shaft of the inner core. That's where it feels eerily realistic. The first time I squeezed the shaft, I squealed out loud. I couldn't help it, it felt that real. When you get to the white base, you'll feel the firm silicone, that makes up the inner core as well. The white base is gorgeous as it has a purple/blue iridescence to it. Raquel is a beautiful pink with a slight purple iridescence. You can see slight lines of darker pink on the head. The dildo is completely smooth, with no variations in texture.

*DO NOT USE WITH SILICONE BASED LUBRICANTS!!! IT MAY DAMAGE THE TOY!!! If you insist on using a silicone based lubricant, spot test on an area that is not insertable.

**The VixSkin silicone is malleable with a certain amount of pin point pressure or force. So be careful handling her, as she may "bruise" or dent from finger nails.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Raquel is phallic and functional. It's not realistic and doesn't have any texture that resembles a penis. Now that doesn't mean that if someone were to look at Raquel they wouldn't have any clue that it's a dildo. That much is obvious. The head is bulbous and completely squishy. The bulb allows for great G-spot stimulation, as it rubs rather than pokes. I assume that it would stimulate the prostate in the same way. About three-quarters down on the bulb, you can feel the tip of the inner core. The inner core is firm, but Raquel has quite a bit of flop to her. This can make it difficult to insert anally or vaginally. This may make her difficult for harness use, but may allow for interesting positions.

Raquel does have a suction cup base, that does work well on COMPLETELY smooth surfaces. I had difficulty getting her to effectively adhere to the tile wall of my shower. Though, the tile in my shower is on the small side. I found that her base wasn't a circle like other Vixen Creations dildos, but more of an oval. The oval works great for use, as it adds to the stability of Raquel. It helps me retain control of her extremely pliant body. This may also be the case when using her in a harness. Also, I found it worked well in keeping Raquel in place when using the suction cup base. To my extreme pleasure, I found that she worked best on the bottom of the bathtub. I had to pry her off with my finger nails. That's something I look for when using a suction cup base.

Her size is non-intimidating. She's great for beginners or intermediate players. I'm more into girth, but I found her size to be perfect for anal play. She's very comfortable to use and doesn't require a ton of warm up. A simple butt plug before hand, is enough to get ready for Raquel. Her head does provide the "pop" that many of us look for in a toy. Since the head is so pliant and the soft silicone encases the shaft, I found this to be the most comfortable toy I've ever used anally.

Performance

Raquel blew my mind when I first held her in my hands. As my first exposure to Vixen Creations VixSkin, I have to say I'm now hooked. I was taken aback by her tacky feel, so I immediately walked over to the sink and lathered her up with soap. I was surprised at how slick she became. I boil all of my toys before use, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. The first time I used her vaginally, I was not all that impressed by her lack of girth. I did enjoy her more when I changed positions, and also when wearing a butt plug. Now onto my favorite part; anal. I was in shock at how amazing Raquel felt in my butt. The girth was perfect. The sensation of the outer layering with the flexible inner core, blew my mind. I kid you not when I say that I had to stop mid-play to say "Wow". I'm an intermediate anal player and this was just amazing. I guess the best way to describe my "light bulb" moment, was that of Goldilocks. I've tried this dildo and that dildo, but this one is just the right size.

I did find that sticking Raquel to the shower wall to be rather difficult. I did give her another shot on the bottom of the bath tub. That's where I had my best orgasm vaginally. In that position I found that she hit my g-spot every time. The soft silicone allows me to slam down without injury. I'm lucky nobody was home to hear me moan. I also found that the oval base worked well for gripping. It allowed me to maintain a comfortable grip and allowed me to use it longer without my hand tiring. The floppiness of Raquel did give me grief for a moment, when I initially attempt to insert her anally. After using a firm hand, I experienced the most comfortable and pleasurable "pop", that I've ever felt.

I bought Raquel to replace my favorite dildo that was made of hazardous material (jelly), that I used primarily for anal. I'm so happy I did.

Care and Maintenance

Oh glorious silicone, how I love thee. This lovely, naked lady can be cleaned with toy cleaner or soap and water. To sterilize, you can boil her for 3-5 minutes or wipe her down with a 10% bleach solution. I wouldn't recommend throwing her in the dishwasher just because of her delicate skin.

To help her retain her shape, I store her upright, in Vixen Creations' cylinder packaging. If it takes up too much space, you can store her in a Ziploc bag. If you were to do that, I would keep her where she won't get banged up or smashed.

Packaging

Vixen Creations ships most of its toys in the same cylinder packaging. The cylinder is clear with two stickers on it; one that says VixSkin and the other is one that is on all Vixen Creations' packaging. The one that is on all Vixen Creations' packaging is the mission statement for the company and some information about their silicone.

I love the packaging and store all of my Vixen Creations in their cylinders. This makes them fun to look at, safe from harm, and free of lint/hair. If the packaging is too much, take solace in the fact that it is recyclable.

    Excellent review and pics and a real pleasure to edit (thank you!)

    We've got several Vixen dildos and are currently in love with the VixSkin Johnny and Goodfella. We hadn't considered another one but that might just change after this review

    Thanks for the outstanding review and pics! I especially appreciate the measurements, and it's also great to know how realistic it feels. I've thought about getting this, but it seems a lot like a thinner, non-realistic version of Johnny... but it's still on our wishlist. We'll probably end up getting it. Your review makes it more likely.

    Great review, love your poolside pictures. Your dildoes are probably happier than mine...they live with me in a rainy area with no pool access. I can't exactly take them to the public pool.

    Thanks everyone! @PassionCpl - Thanks for editing! I'm currently addicted to Vixskin, too! lol @Surreptitious - Right?! Goldilocks Unchained. lol @ImaGodiva - My dildos are happy, but I'm sure your dildos are just as happy, if not more. Since the rainy weather keeps you indoors for more play! lol
