Definitely an "Original" for me!

My favorite toy to use that offers me the greatest pleasure. This has been my best buy so far and was worth every penny. I recommend to experienced and advanced users.
Easy to clean, Flexible, Silicone Material, Inexpensive, Durable will last for years.
No flared based, very slippery when lubed, limited colors.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This toy is very flexible in more ways than one. This can be used for solo or partner play. If you are a beginner please look to something smaller in size. This is not a small toy at all, it is thick (1 5/8") and the head is not tapered much. It will require a fair amount of lube and may take some time to adjust to it. If you are to use it in anal play like I do please be careful and keep in mind that there is no flared base. Because it is made of silicone, it can change temperature rapidly. Simply place it in a container or bowl of the ideal temperature water, cold, warm, hot, etc. for a few minutes and it's ready. It will also quickly warm up because of your body temperature. This will definitely add to a more realistic feel. It can be used for slow sensual stimulation or faster more rough pleasures. With just a little lube, I can ride this thing fairly fast with no irritation, rubbing, or stinging at all. It's a smooth ride all the way.

Material / Texture

What can I say? It's 100% silicone, material safety rating of 10 and one of few materials you should use for anal play or with a partner. It is non-porous; no odors should form from prolonged use. That being said, use of any strong scented soap may linger, mostly due to any soap not properly rinsed off etc. Dirt, lint, and/or dust can adhere easily to the surface; just give it a quick wash in water, or a toy wipe to remove it before/after use.

This toy is thick, realistic feeling, smooth, flexible, firm but soft, and somewhat squishy when enough pressure is applied. The textured veins on the surface do add to the pleasure sensors. Easy to ride this one also, just make sure the base is not lubed or on a wet surface so it can stay put. It you stand it upright on a flat surface it should stay standing on its own. Also there are no seams on the toy.

    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

I love the design, shape, and feel of this one. I purchased the pink colored, the other is beige. While beige will be a more realistic look, the pink gives it some style. Size is great at least for me, length and thickness both are just right. While not a very discreet toy, it's worth taking with you wherever you may travel. It is fairly realistic looking and is a good size for an average user especially for anal play. As mentioned in a different review, if you are giving this as a gift keep in mind if the person would want to be discreet about it.

The performance of this thing is great. It is just the right thickness I think for most people. It fills you up just enough to keep you satisfied, it's like the perfect serving. It can take a bit of work to get it in at first but its most definitely worth it. Use a water based lube and reapply when necessary for best results. Keep in mind there is no flared base, this makes it harder to use overall. I have tried different places, different positions and haven't had too many problems in using it. My favorite is definitely riding it in the shower; surprisingly it does not slip and move around.

I feel it is more of a solo play toy, for moderate insertion, as it requires you to hold onto it a lot of the time if it's lubed all over. Usually I only apply a small amount of lube on the head of the toy and add more if it really needs it. Too much lube leads to having a lot of slippage.

    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

"The Original" is incredibly easy to clean. Throw it in the dishwasher if you have one (top rack), while not discreet, it's easy and effective. Toy wipes/spray can be used, warm water, and soap as well. I usually just hand wash under hot water and anti-bacterial soap myself. Store it how you like, a lint free towel works great to wrap it up in. Use the plastic storage container it comes with, a baggy (zip lock) etc. I do recommend keeping it separated from other toys that are not 100% Silicone. I have seen different materials react to each other before which can lead to bad results. Remember to be safe with sharing; a condom is always safe even with using silicone toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Simple packaging with just enough information such as name of product, company name, and some info on the toy and for cleaning it. Clear re-usable plastic storage container. However I keep my stored in my own container.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

This is the toy that I always go to. Generally I use it in the shower now; it's easy to ride it in there and get some great pleasure going. Afterwards, it's a very quick clean up for the toy and myself. I've never enjoyed anal play and masturbation as much as I do now having purchased "The Original".


I have only used it for solo play. Before I bought this toy, I found it somewhat difficult to enjoy anal stimulation while masturbating. Sometimes I'd use a vibrator, a dildo, or a butt plug. It felt okay I guess but nothing really fantastic. Then came "The Original." I quickly opened up the package, gave it a good wash and went straight into the shower. I slowly worked it inside of me and started to ride it. Half way through I was riding it hard and fast with no problems, in fact it was incredibly pleasurable. Boy and when I came, wow, I have never experienced such amazing pleasure from a toy before. So ladies, and gentlemen out there, give this one a try! I highly recommend it.
Follow-up commentary
Even though I have broadened my anal experiences over time, since I originally bought this toy around 7 months ago, it is still my first and favorite silicone dildo. I have recently purchased more silicone dildos and plugs. from the same company and also others, however, "The Original" is still unique in some way I cannot fully describe. Whether it's the design, the shape, or a mental factor, this is the dildo I still love to grab first. With many other reviews with such high praises and many satisfied customers, I'm surprised this toy has not won an award! This toy is one in my collection I will have a hard time parting from when it becomes unsafe to use or damaged. It may take a very long time for that to happen, but I hope it is still a product carried at Eden Fantasy's when I need to replace it.

  • Cookie Monster Mike
    Thanks Katelyn I appreciate the read This is one of my older reviews, but still probably my favorite toy
  • Incendiaire
    Is it still your favourite, even compared to the Super Ram-Rod?
  • Cookie Monster Mike
    Honestly yes. I find the Original is still my go to toy for general use. More so if I want to get off with the most pleasure. The Super (AKA Super Ram-Rod) is something I use much less overall. Don't get me wrong, I like the Super, but I find the texture/head to be too much for when I want to get off at the same time. I have a few more toys I need to review, but the Original is still my favorite dildo right now. Thanks for reading, voting, commenting and asking me that
  • MR Chickhabit

    Your welcome Dextromental!
  • Incendiaire
    I must confess, I was a little sceptical that such an unassuming dildo as this could be as good as the reviews said, but then I got one over the weekend and now I'm in total agreement; this thing really is great!
