Works Well While It Lasts!

I prefer to pay a little more and get a higher quality, longer lasting, non-vag-burning product that doesn't reek like an oil rig. Otherwise, the design and shape of the double dong are beautiful. Perfect for beginners to double dong sex play, and easy on your insides. Cover with a condom (or two!), plug your nose, and you're good to go.
Pretty in transparent pink, texture is simple yet effective, perfect for partner play.
Jelly material is high maintenance, must be used with condom or it will 'burn' your insides.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Translucence Smooth Double Dong by California Exotics is manufactured for dual play -- be it you and your partner sharing it, or using it solo in both vagina and anus simultaneously (the dong is very bendable). The toy must be used with a condom as its jelly material will offgas a rather unpleasant smell, and will create an unpleasant burning sensation in your sensitive areas. Plus, if you're sharing with a partner or using it in multiple holes of your own, you will want to use a condom to avoid fluid exchange between you and a partner or bacteria transfer from your own anus to your genital area.

Material / Texture

The material of this toy really turned me off of it. However, as it was my first dildo (a gift from a boyfriend... never used dually whatsoever, oddly enough), I used it til I could no more. The jelly material will 'offgas' with an offensive chemical smell. I used it for a while without a condom, not knowing any better, but after a couple of months, had to use one, and eventually had to throw it away.
The material developed dark spots inside the translucent body, began to deteriorate creating bubbles and divets, continued to smell horribly, and burned my vagina terribly when I used it. Eventually, even the addition of a condom could not curb the burning and I had to throw it away.
As a jelly product, California Exotics' double dong also attracts every speck of dust, hair, etc. in a mile radius and they are not simply rinsed away -- some have to be dug out -- and since the material is sticky (and becomes stickier with age and deterioration) could ruin the toy eventually.

The material is quite soft and squishy, and the entire toy is very bendy and floppy. It has give when a finger is pushed into it until about 2 cm deep. This aids in its gentleness inside you (if you're not burning from the material) and its realistic feel. No dangerous vaginal wall-bruising plastic here.

    • Strong odor

Design / Shape / Size

The shaft of the double dong is smooth, allowing for easy vigorous thrusting. The head ends with two ridges for added stimulation of both parties/orifices.
It is not super realistic, which for me is a plus. Realistic penises kind of freak me out. It has a pleasing semi-abstract look to it, with the bulbous heads on either end being the only real giveaway to its use. However, I wouldn't dare say it's discreet at all, as anyone checking out your baggage through airport security would either scoff or giggle at it.
A separate hard plastic case is recommended for storage to deter this dong's dust collection habit.
    • Whimsical / artistic


In its early life, this was the first toy (coupled with my egg vibrator) to bring me to orgasm. Bravo, double dong! Its smooth texture and perfect 1 1/2" diameter is great for beginners to sex play, as well as toys. Although it is enormous in the setting of masturbation for vaginal penetration, it still did the job. The 12" length, weighing in at 1 lb., was more than enough for vaginal play if not a bit too much. I had to be careful not to thrust too deep, as that could occasionally hurt a wee bit --- not from the hardness of the toy but simply the fact that nothing belongs that deep inside me!
    • Comfortable
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

I recommend water based lube only just to be safe with the jelly material used here. A condom is HIGHLY recommended if you are to brave the land of jelly toys (which I do NOT recommend, honestly. Spending a little more to get much better quality will never leave you in the land of regret).

The use of a condom is dual purpose: for hygiene as well as protection from the chemicals in the jelly.

Store in a hard plastic case in a cool area only, or the toy may melt a bit. Wash with soap and water, not dishwasher safe.
    • Hard to clean
    • High maintenance

Personal comments

I recommend toys that are 100% silicone, and personal taste leans towards more artfully crafted, abstract looking dildos such as the products I have added below. Check them out and let me know how they work for you!
Follow-up commentary
Jelly never has been and won't ever be a quality sex toy material. It is cheap and low quality. You really get what you pay for. It stinks, it disintegrates, it burns your delicate innards, then it gathers all the lint and dust it can magnetically attract, and develops ugly moles inside.
Even a condom after a while is not enough to combat the force of the jelly. Toxic, that's what it is.
