Why Won't You Let Me Love You, Maverick?I really want to love Maverick, I do, but sadly my eyes were bigger than my vagina. Maverick is a luxury product which delivers what is promised which is why I can not justify awarding him less than four stars. Although I can not use this product due to its extremely large size, Maverick is 100% body safe, imitates the feeling of skin well, displays extensive attention to detail, and provides the girth that many people desire in sex toys.
Maverick arrived packaged in a large plastic tube intended for storage. The tube has a description of the toy, instructions for care and maintenance, and the company label. According to another member of Eden Fantasys, this silicone is less durable than more firm silicones and Vixen Creations recommends storing their VixSkin products in the tube to help maintain their shape. Also, this silicone collects lint and dust particles very easily. Luckily, they also wash or wipe of without difficulty. I store Maverick in the tube, which is very convenient, but he is so massive it can be cumbersome to squeeze him in just right.
This toy was too large for me to use vaginally, but lathered up in the sink while cleaning him, this toy feels eerily realistic. At first this was so shocking that I screamed for my sister to come in and feel him - before use, of course. Many qualities of the VixSkin sex toys are difficult to describe and must be experienced. To produce the feeling of real flesh the VixSkin products have a firm inner core and a thick plush layer of silicone surrounding this core. This creates a dildo that can provide firm pressure but also plenty of give.
The aesthetics of Maverick add to the realistic presence of this toy. The head is very smooth and quite slick when lubricated. The shaft has similar grooves and wrinkles, like real skin. While Maverick does imitate the feeling of skin well, not even the Incredible Hulk could rival Maverick's size and girth.
I tried valiantly to make things work between Maverick and me. This was an interesting experience because unlike most products I own where the head is significantly larger than the shaft, Maverick's circumference gradually increases from head to base. For those searching for a filling dildo that also provides a stretching sensation, this is a really great choice. However, Maverick's head was a challenge for me and the increasing girth was closer to pain than enjoyment and I have never been able to insert more than his head.
After accepting he and I would never be successful vaginally, I tried using him for oral stimulation during masturbation. Readers, if you frequently use a harness with your partner for penetration or oral sex, this toy will provide a pleasant and pleasurable challenge for your partner. While again he was too large even for my mouth, the VixSkin material gained another opportunity to shine. Aside from the girth, stroking and kissing Maverick was strangely realistic. The careful details of this toy add to the skin-like experience and the plushy silicone makes this feel much more realistic than other toys.
Well, too large for my vagina and my mouth, this left one more orifice. If you, dear reader, could use this toy anally, give yourself both a pat on the back and the bum because YOU are a star.
I wanted to love Maverick and we really tried to work things out but sadly he and I can only be friends. This conclusion lead to an interesting series of photos with he and I just hanging out. We watched Fight Club, Maverick found religion, tried on shoes, and sitting on my car dashboard said goodbye to a friend as she caught the Megabus back to Chicago.
While I firmly believe Maverick is worth the price, this is a toy for people who enjoy very large toys and are willing to invest in something they know will be appreciated. To those inexperienced with larger toys, my advice is to dip your feet in the water with a less expensive toy and gauge what your body can handle. Although this may sacrifice quality, it will decrease the risk of spending $100.00 on a product you may not be able to use. I wish this is what I had done. This is an extremely high quality, skillfully crafted, and beautiful luxury product that I can not use. Maverick is only a trophy that seems unjustly claimed. Maybe one day he and I can be together, but until then Maverick will only be displayed proudly in my growing toy arsenal.
