Curved for Optimal Pleasure

While the toy was extremely comfortable to use, it left me yearning for more when it came to girth and vibration location. That being said, the curve of this toy hit spots deep inside of me that just felt decadent! I appreciate the wide base and the ease of cleaning. While I will definitely use this toy often, it would not be my first choice for an anal vibrator. However, for those who prefer a thinner shaft, this toy might be the perfect fit!

Use

This toy is designed for anal use. In fact, the packaging even advertises the toy as a butt plug. While walking around with such a big toy inside my ass is not realistic, the toy does work very well as an anal dildo.

This toy is great for solo play. The wide base makes it easy to stick the toy on a chair, insert the toy into my ass, and ride the shaft to orgasm. The base fits perfectly in the palm of my hand and can be used to penetrate my ass while prone, standing up, or any other variety of positions. You could also use this toy with a partner. However, the base is large enough that it prohibits double penetration when the base is flush with your ass cheeks. The toy is not ideal for travel as the design is not discreet. While it would be easy to keep this vibrator in a large bag or backpack, if anyone peeked inside, they would recognize this toy as a sex object. This toy is safe to use in the shower, so you could even enjoy some soaking wet fun!

This toy could also be used as a vaginal toy since the curve would likely stimulate the G-spot. I do not use the same toys to penetrate my butt and vagina for sanitary reasons. So, unfortunately, I did not get to try vaginal stimulation with this toy. Since this toy vibrates, it could be used as an external massager on other parts of the body. However, again, after I used this vibrator as an anal toy, I did not want to rub it all over my body.

Material / Texture

The shaft is made out of 100% food-grade silicone. It is hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous, and phthalate free. The base is made out of ABS plastic. Both of these materials are high quality, safe for your body, and long-lasting. The silicone had a slight new car smell upon opening. I found this concerning, especially since the product information on the package noted that, "There are many manufacturers in the market claiming the use of Silicone material. Instead they use a less expensive rubber polymer as substitute. You can test for silicone with the following methods: Smell - If it has even a slightest odor, not Silicone." However, after washing the toy only once with soap and water, the material was odorless.

The entire shaft, aside from the head, feels hollow, allowing for extreme flexibility. While I found the toy very comfortable to use, I don't think that degree of flexibility is necessary. During playtime, I did not bend the shaft anywhere near the full range of motion. While the toy is flexible, it is not flimsy. The curve of the toy is designed so that a downward force on the shaft will not bend the toy easily. If you are inserting the toy by sitting on it, the shaft will be firm enough to provide support. The head of the shaft feels solid and is tapered at the tip to allow for smooth entry into the ass.

Flexibility
    • Flexible
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The design is very sleek with smooth edges on the shaft and on the base. The shaft of this toy is an abstract interpretation of a penis. If you typically shy away from realistic dildos, you may find this toy just abstract enough! However, it is clearly a sex toy and cannot hide in plain sight. Big bases are essential for anal play, since the last thing you want is to lose a toy inside your ass. So, I appreciated the wide base on this vibrator.

I found the shaft to be a good size for intermediate anal users. When the curved shaft is straightened, the length is 5 inches from the top of the base to the tip of the shaft. The widest part of the head measured 1.22 inches in diameter. I would not recommend using this toy if you are not comfortable fitting three fingers inside of your ass, as that is approximately equivalent to 1.22 inches. While I enjoyed the moderately sized head, once I inserted the toy beyond that point, the shaft tapered to a smaller diameter. I found that the smaller diameter did not provide the fullness that I like from anal stimulation. It left me feeling a bit empty.

Measurements

The shape of this toy is well designed for anal stimulation. Since the rectum is curved, it makes sense that the design of the toy would accommodate that. By orienting the toy with the curve arching toward the spine, I found the toy very comfortable and easy to insert. However, the toy was mildly uncomfortable when inserted in any other orientation.

    • Wide tip

Functions / Performance / Controls

There is a single control button located on the bottom of the toy’s base. This button starts the vibrations with a single push, cycles through the 10 different vibration functions with consequent pushes, and will turn off when you hold down the button for about three seconds. The next time you turn on the toy, it will resume the vibration cycle since it remembers the last function used. I found the single button control very convenient and easy to use.

There are 10 vibration settings as described below. To see visual representations of each function, see the packaging section of this review.

1. High Vibrating: constant, strong vibrations, hand-numbing after 3 seconds
2. Medium Vibrating: constant, moderate vibrations, hand-numbing after 5 seconds
3. Low Vibrating: constant, rumbly vibrations, hand-numbing after 7 seconds
4. Step: abrupt, staccato pulses in increasing intensity, pattern repeats after 1 second
5. High-Low: rapid pulses alternating between high and low intensity
6. Dip: high intensity, legato bursts of vibration every 0.3 seconds
7. High Pulse: high intensity, legato bursts of vibration every 0.2 seconds
8. High Steeplechase*: high intensity bursts interspersed by short rests, repeats every 0.3 seconds
9. Low Steeplechase*: longer, high intensity bursts spaced out by rests, repeats every 0.5 seconds
10. Low Pulse: low intensity, rumbling vibration bursts

*The Steeplechase vibration functions feel as though someone has a vibrator on a constant power setting but continuously flips the switch on and off at regular intervals.

The vibrations originate from the tip of the toy. However, once the head was fully inserted into my rectum, I no longer felt such strong vibrations. The nerves are concentrated around the anal sphincter at the entrance to my asshole. When I slid the toy out so the tip was closer to the ring of muscles, I could feel the vibrations more.

The toy is fairly quiet. On the lowest constant vibration setting, the toy was the same volume as my iPhone. When placed on a hard surface, the vibrating base of the toy will make a fair bit of noise, so I would advise against doing so if you are concerned about the volume level. The medium constant vibration setting could be mistaken for the sound of a fan in pitch and volume. The highest constant vibration as well as the patterns are the least discrete because they sound most like vibrating toys. However, once I slide the toy beneath the covers, I can only hear a soft hum. I live in a college dorm and I was not concerned about neighbors hearing this toy from the hallway or adjacent rooms.

The toy is powered by three AAA batteries. There is a battery compartment on the bottom of the toy.

Battery Compartment

To remove the battery chamber, twist the bottom compartment off as shown in the image below. To replace the compartment, simply line up the arrow on the bottom compartment with the word, "open,” and while compressing the two halves of the base, twist the bottom compartment until the arrow lines up with the word, "close."

Opening the Toy

The toy is marketed as "Guaranteed Waterproof" with the stipulation that the toy is safe for shower fun and easy cleaning in the sink but will not keep the toy waterproof when fully submerged in the case of pools or baths. Examining the toy, I see that the battery compartment has an O-ring gasket (the rubber loop sealing the toy when closed). After I washed the toy in the sink with soap and water and dried the toy's exterior thoroughly, I found that the battery compartment remained completely dry as expected.

O-Ring Gasket
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Never use silicone lube with your silicone toy. Doing so may break down the material, making it appear melted or gooey and more susceptible to bacteria growth. Always check your toy before use by examining the entire toy and feeling for soft spots. If a spot feels unusually mushy or looks as if it is melting, your silicone is compromised and the toy must be thrown away. As much as you may want to keep the toy, protecting your body is far more important.

Lube is essential for anal play. Unlike the vagina, your anus is not naturally lubricated. So, apply a generous amount of lube to prevent tears and transfer of infections. My favorite lube for anal play is water-based gel lubricant which, like all non-silicone lubricants, is safe to use with silicone toys.

If you are a user with a vagina, do not switch from anal insertion to vaginal as fecal matter can cause infections. It is advised to use a condom if you are sharing the toy between multiple people to prevent the spread of STIs.

While normally, silicone can be sterilized through boiling, since this toy has motors and wires inside of the silicone shaft, boiling and dish-washing are not good ideas. Some people who want to thoroughly clean their silicone toys will use a 10% bleach solution. However, I have not tried bleaching this specific toy, so I cannot comment on any potential adverse effects.

As with most silicone products, lint and dust will stick to your toy. So, be careful where you put it down during a play session! If your toy does get dirty, it is easy enough to clean. I find that simply washing silicone with antibacterial soap and water does the trick. You can also use your favorite toy cleaner or toy wipes! Since this toy is waterproof, it is safe to wash the whole toy in the sink or in the shower. Just make sure the battery compartment is fully closed before exposing the toy to water! After washing my toy, I let it air dry or pat it down with a clean towel. I store my toys in a ventilated toy box.

Occasionally batteries leak. It is best that they do not leak on your precious toy! Plus, even when a vibrator is off, it will often suck the life out of your batteries over time. So save money and take the extra precaution by removing your batteries after each use!
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

The shipping box was very discreet. As is normal for EdenFantasys orders, the toy came in a plain, brown box. The return address was listed as "Web Merchants Inc."

Box

The product label had a clean, streamline look and the front side definitely caught my eye! The toy packaging was not very discreet since "BUTTPLUG FLEXI HEAD" was printed in bold. The packaging is very easy to open, so you can put away your scissors!

Package Front

The back side of the label was printed in minuscule writing. I felt like I was at the eye doctor taking a vision test just to read what it said. There were very useful tips and information about the vibration settings, the material, cleaning instructions, and tips about how to tell if a product is actually silicone. Additionally, there was an information sheet with detailed instructions for battery installation and safety. Between the labels and the instructions, there was more than enough information provided!

    • Very informative

Experience

I found the toy most pleasurable when I was prone, on my stomach. I inserted the shaft into my ass until the base hit my ass cheeks, then proceeded pound into myself with short, hard thrusts. The toy applied pressure deep inside my rectum that made me pant and moan. I was even able to stimulate my G-Spot through my vaginal walls, and boy, did it feel amazing!
Follow-up commentary
I have played with this toy more since the original review and have realized that the dildo is more uncomfortable than I initially thought. While the shaft is hollow, bending the toy takes a considerable amount of force. When using this toy, this lack of give, combined with the curved design, make this toy very uncomfortable to use. The curve of the toy pushes against my inner walls and does not follow the natural path of my anal passage.

Also, after washing this toy more, I have found that some water does seep into the battery compartment. While minimal water enters, I worry that if I were to shower with this toy, real damage could result.

    Thanks for such a great review. I can tell that a lot of thought and care went writing it. And what a bendy dildo!
  • DancerKittyKat
    CharlotteNicole, thank you very much! Yes, I figure if a toy is sent to me free in return for my honest opinion, I better include all of the information I would want to know before purchasing the item! It is VERY bendy!
