The slender-bender

All in all, I think it is a yay for anal play, but a nay for vaginal stimulation. It fails as G-spot dildo, but it feels nice anally. It will never make it to my top favorite toys, but it is definitely good quality and a nice design for not too much money. It's probably a nice addition, and give good variety to any toy chest. Even if you prefer wider toys, it is good for a warm-up.

Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is a silicone dildo with a slim shaft, designed for either anal or vaginal use. The flared base makes it safe for anal use without the risk of loosing it. It can be used with a dildo harness, or it can be hand-held during thrusting. The material is flexible, but not soft. It has no give, but because of the flexibility it can be used for thrusting without fear of hurting yourself or your partner, though that makes strong G-spot and P-spot stimulation harder.

Because of its size and the flared base it is not suitable to be worn for an extended amount of time.
It can be used with a partner or alone. As it is non-realistic, it is non-threatening and a good choice for a first toy for adventurous couples.

It has no suction cup or vacu-lock, therefore it cannot be attached to smooth surfaces.

The tapered head makes for easier insertion, and it is supposed to be for G-spot stimulation. The thinner shaft makes it easier to take anally. Because of the bigger head I would not classify it as a beginner toy, but maybe a pre-intermediate one. It is definitely not for size queens.

It is completely waterproof, naturally, so it can be used in the bath or shower. It does not vibrate so it’s silent during use, making it suitable for places with thin walls too.

It looks like exactly what it is, a dildo, so it is not discreet. Do not leave it laying around.

The material is great for temperature play. It holds body warmth well. It takes longer to heat it up or cool it down than a metal or glass toy, but cools down slower too.

Material / Texture

The dildo is made 100% silicone. It is non-porous, tasteless and odorless, and has a 10 out of 10 Eden material safety. It is hypo-allergenic , latex free, and phthalates free. The surface is smooth. It has no textures and no seams. Dry, it has quite a lot of drag (compared to other silicone toys I own), but with the use of lube it is not a problem. (remember to only use water-based lubes with it, as silicone and oil based ones could damage it!) The material is not sticky though. It has a different feel to it than most of my silicone toys. It resembles more like rubber (without the smell).

The material is quite dense. The packaging claims it has a realistic feel, but it does not. It is not like any dual core toy I have tried, nor is it anything like the real deal. Regardless, it does have a nice feel to it.
The color is homogeneous and shiny. The material is flexible. The toy can be bent into two in either direction.
The material is homogenous. There's no layering, and no external parts on it. It had very little give, even when pinching it my hardest. I can barely squish it a millimeter (see on the picture below).
It keeps its shape well, and regains it after bending without any signs of stress. Just to test the material, I bit the base as hard as I could, but I did not leave any teeth marks.

It is a lint and hair magnet. I put it away washed clean and take it out covered in dust and sometimes even hair. It is easy to wash off though.

Design / Shape / Size

It has a ‘classic’ dildo shape, with a slender shaft and a bulbous head.

Length: 6 ¼”(15,9 cm)
Insertable length: 5 ½” (14 cm)
Circumference: 4 1/4" (10.8 cm)
Diameter: 1 1/4"(3.2 cm)
Weight: 0.4 lb
Circumference of base : 8’ (20.3 cm)
Diameter of base: 2 ½” (6.4 cm)
Circumference of bulbous tip: 4 ¼(10.8 cm)”
The rulers on the picture below are in centimeters.

The head of the dildo is bulbous but tapered which helps insertion, both anally and vaginally. The head is supposed to be designed for G-spot or P-spot stimulation. The shaft is slender. There is a significant difference between the head and the rest of the toy. Once the muscle ring is closed around the head, this makes it harder to accidentally slip out.

The shaft has a slight curve to it which follows more or less the curve of the vagina making the use more comfortable. Even if the curve is not a perfect fit, the flexibility of the toy makes up for that.

It has a flared, flat base so it can be fit into an o-ring and used in a harness. The base is smooth; it cannot be attached to surfaces. The flared base also makes it a good anal toy.
It is non-realistic both in feel, looks and color, but it is obvious what it is.

I have tried it both vaginally and anally, and I found that the head is not very well suited for G-spot stimulation. It just did not hit the right spot. Because of the flexibility of the toy, not enough pressure could be applied directly. Also, after the bulbous head I found the slender shaft to be lacking a bit.

Anally, I liked it a lot a better. The head prevented the toy from accidentally slipping out, and I require less girth for anal stimulation. The curve of it followed my body well, and the flexibility allowed for a comfortable insertion, though it took a ton of lube to take it anally. I found it to be a good fit. Normally I prefer toys with a bit more squishiness to them, but I found the lack of it to be no problem. It offered enough length for insertion.

I tried it using just in hand for trusting, and found the base was a good handle, though a bit too big for my palm (but I have very small hands).

I also tried it in a harness, and found that in a 2" diameter o-ring it was moving around too much because of the slender shaft. In a 1.5” ring it works better but a (much) smaller ring would not fit because of the head. This was not a serious problem though. Once inserted, the vagina or anus kept it in place. It had minimal drooping in a harness.

It can be heated up to body temperature, and it keeps the heat for quite some time.

As it is a non-realistic dildo in every sense it is not good for gender play.

It cannot vibrate and, because it is made of a soft material, it conducts vibrations badly. The base is smooth, but not a suction cup. You cannot stick it to different surfaces.

    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

It is a 100% pure silicone toy. Therefore, you can only use water based lube with it as silicone based ones might damage the material. You might want to test your lube on the base if you have not used that brand before as some water-based ones might contain components with silicone in it. Being made of silicone also means it is non-porous and heat resistant. You can sterilize it between sharing. You can boil it, bleach it or put it into the dishwasher to clean it.

It is a lint magnet, so you will probably need to wash it off under running water (maybe with a bit of soap) before use. You can dry it with a towel (but there is the lint-problem) or just let it out to sit and air dry.

It does not need special treatment like talc or oiling. It is very easy to care for.

It is best stored out of sight as it is not a discreet toy. The package it arrived in is suitable for storage, but so is a cloth sac. You should probably not store it together with other silicone toys to avoid accidental chemical reactions.

It is pretty easy to take with you if you travel, if you can spare the room. As it does not vibrate there is no fear of accidentally turning on and it does not need batteries or charging either.


The packaging is very simple; a fold-out plastic carrier. It is suitable for storage, though there is a lot of “dead volume” around the toy because of the plastic. If you have storage space problems (like most toy collectors), a cloth or plastic bag would do better. The packaging is not firm. If you decide to store your toy in it do not put heavy stuff on top of it to avoid damaging the dildo. The cover is see-through plastic, so it is absolutely not discreet. You should keep it out of sight. The back of the package contains a lot of information on the toy and its material. I think only the “feels lifelike” part is totally off.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative

Personal comments

It is an inexpensive toy made of a high-quality material. If you are not looking for a lot of girth, if you are unsure what you want, this is a nice versatile dildo to try. Also, because of its many uses, I don’t think it is a superb one in either function but it is not a bad one either. If you are looking specifically for G-spot stimulation, look further.


For vaginal use, I think it was a poor choice. I had problems getting the head in. Then the shaft felt like nothing and the head was not hitting my G-spot.

Anally though, I found it nice to play with. It was easy to handle and comfortable to use. I preferred it hand-held to the harness. It felt satisfying, and nice and filling. The toy in itself would not make me orgasm. I need clitoral stimulation for that, but it was a nice addition and made for a different, stronger orgasm.

I do not reach for this toy too often, but I will not be giving it away any time soon either. I would have liked to give it a 3.5 star rating for the failed G-spot promise, but with the material, price and how it worked anally, I just can't give it 3 stars only either. So I rated it 4.
