Dream Big

Ashton will not let you down. With the powerful vibrations and curvy design, you are in for a pleasure-filled experience. Whether you are in bed, bent over the couch or in the swimming pool, the body of this vibrator bends with you to meet your needs and hits the g-spot every time. Cleaning of this toy can be a hassle but not enough to deprive yourself of this amazing toy.

Use

Ashton's Sweet Dreams is a waterproof G-spot vibrator made by Doc Johnson. For me, a normal vibrator just will not do. I need texture or something "off-beat". Ashton was fantastic. With the tip being curved, this is fantastic no matter how deep or shallow your spot might be. The body is a curvy design which is perfect for added friction and stimulation. This toy works perfect for couples, as well as solo play.

The vibrations are set with a spin dial, ranging from low to max (pretty intense). With the max setting, I would only recommend someone using this internally. The extreme vibrations against sensitive skin can be pretty painful. However, if you are using the low setting you could use this externally. It does wonders on your clit, nipples, and around the anus.

The first look of this toy might be overwhelming. It is much bigger in person than it appears on the screen. I probably would not recommend this to someone that is introducing themselves to vibrators. The size and design might be too much. Also because of the size and material, I personally would not recommend using this toy anally. If you have a large threshold, you might be alright but I advise against it. Also, with any Jelly toy, make sure you use a condom.

One of the best things about this toy is that it is waterproof. There is a caution sticker on the back of the package that warns you about the cap. Make sure the cap is secure and tight. We were a little cautious about his powerful toy being in water so we tried it in the shower first. After which, I removed the cap and it was completely dry. So, we moved on to the swimming pool. This toy is even more amazing in the water. The added sensation was unbelievable. Oh yeah, the battery compartment was still dry afterwards. With this toy being made out of jelly, I would not recommend using it anywhere other than in water. This material picks up every little piece of hair and lint. It is even worse if you apply lube. I have 2 cats and a dog, this toy was covered with hair within a minute.

Material / Texture

Ashton's Sweet Dreams Vibrator is made from Jelly (which is made from Poly vinyl chloride). Jelly ranks a 2 on Eden's Material Safety Scale. This Jelly vibrator is not Phthalate-free and is extremely porous. Latex is commonly found in jelly rubber material, so if you are allergic this is definitely not the toy for you. I just recently learned that after some time of use, Jelly starts to break down and could cause infection. With that being said, you should always clean thoroughly and use a condom on these types of toys.

I have never used a toy made from jelly before now. My not knowing what to expect had me really excited when it arrived. The material is so smooth that it is almost naturally sticky. It is extremely bendable and rubbery. I have to admit; at first I was kind of stand off-ish. The vibrator had a very light smell but it wasn't strong enough to turn me away from it (it actually smelled descent). Being completely smooth, there is no texture to this toy. Personally, I like a little more texture. Texture gives it a little something extra. I was a little disappointed when I first saw this smooth surface but fortunately the curves of this bad boy make up for the lack of texture. The only things on here that are not jelly is the handle and dial, they are both a hard plastic.




The product page nor the material page provided information about whether this toy was phthalate-free or porous, so I did some research. I found many sites that pretty much all said that same thing but this is the one that I thought was the most informative.

Design / Shape / Size

Ashton is a pretty decent size boy, so discretion is tough. This is definitely not something that you would want to leave laying around. It does not come with a carrying case or anything of the sort. If you don’t already have a storage container, I suppose you could put him in a large zip lock bag for storage. You would need to find something airtight because as previously stated, it will attract hair and lint. I wouldn’t see an issue traveling with Ashton as long as he is tucked away in a bag and continuously cared for. This is not a toy that you would be using on an airplane or public places, the size and intensity would just be too much. Here are the measurements:

Length: 8 ½ inches
Insertable Length: 6 inches
Diameter: 2 ½ inches
Circumference: 5 ¾ inches

I really like the design of this toy. With the curled tip and curvy body, there wasn’t much that Ashton couldn’t do for me. I laid it straight down between my legs. One curve was pressing against my vagina and another was pressing against my clit, this was absolutely amazing. When inserted, the curves filled me completely while the vibrations went to work. The curled g-tip was one of the biggest “OMG” moments I have ever had.

The curved tip also works perfectly for anal stimulation. I used this on my husband and it drove him absolutely insane. I did not insert the vibrator, just merely pressed the tip against his anus. It also worked well pressing the tip in the center crease of his ball sack. He really enjoyed both of those!

Functions / Performance / Controls

The only function for this toy is vibrate. However, with this toy those vibrations are successful at their job. Just about medium is perfect for me. The vibration is controlled by a really easy turn dial. The settings range from "low" to "max". The turn dial is found at the base of the vibrator. It requires 2 AA batteries that are not included.




I don't have any issues with its performance. I just wish it had more functions. Don't get me wrong, these vibrations are fantastic, but if they added some different settings this toy would be unstoppable. This toy does make a buzzing noise. It gets louder as you increase the vibrations. At the "max" setting, it is loud enough to hear under the covers, but I don't think it is loud enough to be heard through a door. If your bed is right next to the door, there is a possibility it might be heard. If you are worried about the noise, the "low" setting would be best.

The package of this toy said it was waterproof, so we tested that theory. As previously stated, we used this toy in the shower and swimming pool but also in the bathtub and a jacuzzi. After each "test", we removed the cap and it was completely dry. This is probably one of the better waterproof toys that I have enjoyed. There is a warning on the package that insists that you make sure you put the cap on correctly to ensure the "waterproofing". You will know when the cap is not on securely because the vibrator will not get power. I really like that feature.

Care and Maintenance

Jelly is not an easy toy to care for, in my opinion. Besides the fact that everything sticks to it, it cannot be sanitized completely. You cannot use boiling water on this toy. The recommended method of cleaning is warm water and a toy cleaner (you can’t use certain types of soap, so just stick with the cleaner). Let Ashton completely dry then store him in a cool, dark place. I kept the box it came in and put it in my "toy box".

Drying this toy is not fun at all. I had to continuously wipe him off. I would walk away, come back and have to wipe him off once again because there would be stuff on it again.

Because you cannot fully sanitize this toy (and Jelly breaks down) you should only use this toy with one partner and always use a condom on it. Jelly is compatible with both water and silicone lubes.
    • High maintenance

Packaging

Ashton's Sweet Dream was packaged in a clear box with some decoration and pictures on it. It included no instructions, other than the warning about securely closing the cap. The warning about the cap is a little white sticker at the bottom left hand corner on the back of the box. I kept the box it came in for storage, mostly because I didn't know what else that would keep this toy clean between uses.

The packaging is not discreet. If you are going to give this as a gift (or storage), you would want to make sure to cover it completely.

Personal comments

I really enjoyed testing this toy. Even with the upkeep and material awareness, this is definitely one of my more treasured toys. I am relatively new to the toy world but in my opinion, this vibrator has a lot to offer in a very simple fashion. I believe if you are aware of the material and the safety measures required, this toy could last you a long time.

Experience

For me, the pleasure this toy provides outweighs the negative aspects. We used this toy in many different positions and many different environments. Performance-wise, Ashton did not let me down. My husband really enjoyed playing with this toy also. The stimulation that he received was enough to get him hooked. The upkeep that is required might slow us down from using this toy but definitely will not shy us away from it.

This vibrator is extremely maneuverable. It really doesn’t matter what position you are in, it will bend and it will deliver. It is really comfortable and easy to use. Just high-maintenance is required.
Follow-up commentary
I really enjoyed Ashton in the beginning. The girth and power was just enough to outweigh the negatives. Now, it is just too much trouble for me. Keeping condoms around the house is just a bother for me because this vibrator is made from Jelly.

It also has an odor to it even though it has been cleaned. If this vibrator was made from something safer it would be perfect... but it's not. I would love to say I still love it; unfortunately, I can't say that.
