Go ahead, slip inside!

This sleeve is just perfect for us. We wanted something that we could use together and were looking for something that was thin enough for me to feel my husband through it, would add a little something extra to hand jobs but not cause my husband to want to orgasm quickly so that it could be used as foreplay and not the main event. The slipinside #2 is a great and inexpensive way to do just that. I'm so happy that I took the chance and picked this up.
reversible, can use over vibes to add girth, not bulky, squishy
none! We love it!

extremely useful review
The Slipinside #2 is a multi-purpose sleeve from Vibratex. It might just look like a masturbation sleeve but it can also be used to add girth to a vibrator or dildo. It's reasonably priced, made from Elastomer and is a great way for couples to share a toy for some mutual enjoyment.

Originally when I purchased the Slipinside I didn't realize it was anything other than a masturbation sleeve, so let me talk about that part of it first. The reason I chose this one over the many options that Eden has is its simplicity. I wanted something that I could use on him to spice up hand jobs. He has the Maven, another Vibratex sleeve, and he likes it and sees no reason for any other sleeve. I don't really use that one on him, it stays in the bathroom so he can use it in the shower and that's his thing. That one is also thicker and squishier and I can't really feel him too well through it. Not to mention it has a closed end which while great for masturbation isn't something I wanted from a sleeve I was going to be using on him. The slipinside #2 is rather thin, it's still super squishy, but it's thin enough that I can feel my husband through it and he can still feel my hand.

The slipinside does allow the cock to do just that, slip right inside. Even though the sleeve doesn't look very wide it stretches easily and with some lubrication applied to the inside it glides easily over the cock. You have two options for texture. There is the smooth side or the ridges. The ridges form a wavy ridge when turned to the inside. This offers a lot more stimulation and was my husband's favorite side. It was my favorite to use on him too as that gave me the smooth side to hold onto.

When using the sleeve on my husband I could choose from a straight stroking motion or a kind of twist/stroke combo. Both were effective on him and while he said it wasn't something that would result in instant orgasm it did feel really good. This was important for us. Since I was going to be using this sleeve as part of foreplay I did not want something that gave so much stimulation that he found it hard to resist orgasm. Now if someone is going to be using this as a masturbation sleeve you might not like that unless you're looking for a longer more relaxing session. I want to make clear though that even though he didn't feel as if he was going to orgasm quickly from it he still did enjoy this toy and he thought that it added a nice sensation to a hand job and liked the gliding motion and the texture. I was also able to slide the sleeve down towards the base of his cock and give him a bit of oral in combination to some twisting. I liked having the ability to do that which is why we didn't want a closed off sleeve.

Using this as a "girthifier" (that's the name we made for it) of a dildo or vibe is pretty easy too. All you do is slide it over the top of whatever toy you have that you feel could use a little more girth. I recommend NOT putting lube on the sleeve for this as that helps keep it in place. You then have the options of either side depending on if you want texture or not. The sleeve stays in place better on silicone or similar textured toys as on plastic toys it has the tendency to want to slip down. The box says to keep this elastomer toy away from vinyl toys, so keep that in mind. I'm not sure if it would make a difference during the short time it was being used or if they just mean for storage purposes.

When sharing this toy between partners keep in mind that this is a porous toy. It is phthalates free but it can't be sterilized so I really don't recommend sharing with a partner that you're not fluid bonded with. To clean the sleeve between uses you can just use some mild soap and water or a toy cleaner. Just take special care to get inside the ridges. It's easiest to just turn it inside out and get the ridges that way. The sleeve comes in a clear plastic box which makes a great storage box, especially since you can see the toy in it and know which one it is.
I'm really happy with my choice of the slipinside #2. For us it works out perfectly because it's a toy that's for my husband's pleasure but doesn't get in the way of us having our time together. I didn't want something that I'd just be sitting there holding and not getting to actually be the one controlling the pleasure and the stroking. This way it's the best of both worlds. Added stimulation for him but I am the one that's moving the sleeve and giving him that stimulation and pleasure. I don't think I'll be using it often as a "girthifier" mainly because the toys that I feel could use some extra girth don't stick to it well and it makes it somewhat awkward. That was mainly a side note we discovered once we read the packaging anyway, we bought it to be a sleeve for my husband.

I definitely recommend this to couples who are looking for a sleeve and don't want something bulky or who aren't sure if they'll even like it since it is so inexpensive. I also recommend this for men who haven't used a sleeve before and want just a little something different than their hand. Like I said above though, it wasn't something that caused my husband such immense pleasure that he would get off quick from it. It probably wouldn't have allowed him to cum any quicker than his hand would when using it alone. The journey to get there would have been more pleasurable though!

Another beautiful thing about this sleeve is that it's compatible with both water based and silicone lubricants. That means that if you want to use it in the shower you can and you won't have to worry about the lubricant wearing off. That's pretty awesome since my husband says the feel of me stroking him with this under a stream of hot water is pretty darn amazing.

    This is too funny! My partner and I used this last night and loved it too! I didn't think anyone else had discovered it lol. Have you seen the other textured one form the same company? We loved it because it easily fits larger guys.

    I was surprised we liked it so much. I actually bought it and didn't tell him about it and when I got the package I was like "oh I bought this too" and just threw it to him and he was like "oh ok" and we thought oh what the heck maybe it'll be good..and we ended up really liking it!

    I did see that one too but that one seems to have a closed end. I might still get it anyway, but it wouldn't be as fun because then we couldn't use it during oral times too.
  • Kayla
