Tough Love from the Taffy Tickler

Super smooth cyberglass & soft silicone combine in this unique toy with a lot of potential. Want it hot? Toss it in the microwave! Want it cold? Throw it in the freezer! Temperature play was never this easy, or fun! If used correctly, you'd be astounded where this relatively slim, unassuming toy can take you! Perhaps better suited to teasing, or foreplay, but overall a great product.

Use

The Taffy Tickler is a textured twist on your classic straight & narrow dildo. Made of super smooth cyberglass, with silicone spikes in between, it really is a toy you have to experience for yourself to appreciate. It's great for stimulating your nipples, clitoris, labia, or for penetration. It can be used on virtually any part of your body, though I would recommend against anal play with this toy, as it lacks a flared base. In my honest opinion, the Taffy Tickler is best suited for gentle, slow stimulation and thrusting. The silicone ticklers are rather firm and can become painful if not used with care. Because of its small size, this toy is excellent for a beginner. It also serves as a great warm-up tool if you're into a little foreplay before the final event.

Material / Texture

The Taffy Tickler is made of hypo-allergenic food-grade material, and is both phthalates & latex free. It is also completely non-porous, waterproof, and sterilizable. The shaft of this dildo is made of clear cyberglass, with intervals of silicone ticklers. The cyberglass is super smooth and glides amazingly easy against any bodily surface. It's incredibly firm and wonderful feeling. The silicone ticklers are also very firm at the base, and softer at the tips. The best way I can describe them is like squishy spikes. The spikes add a wonderful sensation if lightly teased against the body, or twirled around inside you. When thrusting with this toy, however, the ticklers were quite painful. If used gently, this would be an excellent toy for beginners.

The cyberglass is perfect for temperature play. Its instructions state that it can even be tossed in the freezer or heated up in the microwave for 3-7 seconds at a time! That's pretty nifty, considering most glass wouldn't stand up to that type of treatment. I have yet to try either of these suggestions, as I'm still wary of its durability. I'm sure I won't withstand the urge for long though. Feeling my own body heat the glass and then rubbing it over a cooler body part is such an incredible sensation, I can only imagine what it would feel like when properly heated or cooled.

Design / Shape / Size

The total length of this toy is 7 1/2", with 6 1/4" being insertable. The cyberglass shaft is 1" diameter, with the silicone ticklers spanning out to about 1 1/8" diameter. It makes for an interesting sensation when inserted, as it has a very subtle wave shape. Coming in at a 1/2 lb, it's incredibly light and easy to use in any circumstance, yet solid and substantial. It's probably a bit too small for advanced users, but as a beginner I found the size fulfilling enough.

I have to say this is probably one of the pretties toys I currently own. There are four silicone bands in 1" intervals, alternating between baby & navy blue. The cyberglass is glossy and attractive, and the spikes are inviting rather than intimidating. It's lovely just to hold and run your hands up and down the shaft, feeling the contrast from smooth glass to firm, squishy ticklers.

Performance

The Taffy Tickler performed fantastically for external stimulation. I loved it most on my nipples, using the ticklers to lightly tease until they were rock hard. It's also amazing to rub the entire shaft against your vulva, stimulating your clitoris and labia all at once. I've never had a dildo get me so wet from such soft, gentle touches! However, where this toy excels externally, it fails miserably at penetration.

If you take your time and go slow with this one, insertion can actually be quite pleasurable. Twirling the ticklers around inside of you creates an amazing, indescribable sensation. I loved just inserting it and letting my own body heat the glass, and then pulling out and rubbing the hot glass all over my sensitive clit. AMAZING! Even thrusting very very slowly feels rather nice. But don't get too overzealous, or those light, soft ticklers will start to scratch painfully. For this reason, I was unable to get into the rapid thrusting which I need to get off. Regardless, it's a superb tool for foreplay.

Care and Maintenance

Being made of cyberglass & silicone makes this one of the easiest toys you'll probably ever clean. Wash with warm water & anitbacterial soap, boil it for up to 3 minutes, or toss in the dishwasher! I will say, however, that lubricants & liquids get caught in and around the ticklers like nobody's business! Make sure you thoroughly clean between where the silicone meets the glass, and in between the ticklers themselves as well.

To get this toy nice & slick, use water or oil based lubes only. NEVER use silicone based lubricants with this toy, as it will degrade the ticklers. Silicone on silicone is a big no-no!

Packaging

The toy came packaged in a lovely transparent clam-shell plastic case. It's sturdy and wonderful for storing your Taffy Tickler, so be sure to hold onto this! On the front of the package is a small sample circle of the silicone spikes, so you can get a good idea of what they feel like. Inside you have an insert that doubles as the product cover/backer. The back has details concerning cleaning, storing, etc. Open the large insert, and you'll find a few other product pictures from Topco sales, as well as information about cyberglass and its ability to be heated or cooled in ways that normal glass cannot. Overall decent packaging, and presentation.

Personal comments

This has become one of my favorite toys, even though it can be a bit rough at times. For teasing and foreplay, in my book, it is currently unmatched. Attractive to look at, amazing to feel, a lot of fun to use! Get one. That's my advice.
Follow-up commentary
This is still a great implement for temperature play, or teasing. I was really bummed about the painful sensations when using this internally though. I've probably used this once or twice since I reviewed it, and it didn't seem as great as I remembered. An interesting toy, but it's just not something I reach for anymore.
