VixSkin Johnny is far from a John Doe.The VixSkin Johnny is a great choice if you're in the market for a large, realistic dildo that hits the spot, and hits it well. While it's definitely too large for beginners and likely not big enough for the more experienced size queens, the Johnny is far from a John Doe if you're looking for a trusted name to satisfy you when you're in the mood for a girthier toy.
As I expected from 100% silicone, the Johnny has no noticeable odor or taste. The VixSkin feels a bit tacky to the touch, much like my Raquel or my O2 Revolution. I feel as though this toy and the Raquel have a softer texture than my Revolution. For the most part, the Raquel and Johnny have a similar tacky feel, although the Raquel is smooth while the Johnny feels realistic (and thus has veins). As anyone who owns any silicone toys would know, silicone is a lint magnet, but this can be avoided by keeping the toy in a storage case to reduce the transfer of said lint.
In terms of design, the Johnny is far from discreet since it looks like a big, flesh-colored penis. While the veins probably aren't pronounced enough to add to the feel of the toy during use, they definitely add to the realism of the toy, as does the circumcised head with realistic-looking skin folds underneath. The ridge of the head is prominent enough to provide G-spot stimulation when thrusting, and the balls look realistic. This is definitely one of the more realistic dildos that I've seen, although the only other one I've actually owned was made of rubber and I no longer have it.
As I mentioned in my review of the VixSkin Raquel, the VixSkin material is advertised as a real-feel skin material. Personally, I feel that it succeeds in accomplishing this goal, although it does feel tacky in bare hands. However, once it’s lubed up and in use, hands glide easily on it and the material does feel quite realistic and allows the toy to perform as a realistic toy. The Johnny’s material feels similar to the Raquel, minus the fact that the Johnny is textured with veins while the Raquel is smooth. The VixSkin material of the Johnny does feel similar to Tantus’ competing O2 silicone, if you own any of the toys in that line. Although I like them both, I do feel that the VixSkin feels more plush and realistic than the O2, but both have their merits and some may prefer the firmer material.
The packaging features a large black “VixSkin: Worth Every Inch” logo on the front, as well as a label on the back that contains more information about the company and the product. It features selling points of the Johnny, such as the fact that it is made to feel like authentic skin, is 100% silicone, is non-porous, and the like. Since the packaging is clear plastic, it is obviously not discreet, as the product can clearly be seen through it from all angles.
In appearance, this toy serves well as a realistic dildo. In practice, it does, and very well. I used a couple of smaller toys, including the Raquel, to warm up to it the first time that I used it. The fact that the head of the Johnny is so soft and plush aided insertion, and I was easily able to insert this toy as far as was comfortable. The ridge of the head felt very nice against my G-spot, especially when thrusting, and reminded me a bit of the ridges on my Echo (minus several ridges). The toy is long enough that it bumped against my cervix on harder, deeper thrusts, and I found that shallower penetration felt nice as well and also allowed for the aforementioned G-spot stimulation. I don't always feel the need for larger toys, but the next time that I do, I'll definitely reach for the Johnny.
