Glowing jellyfish — eeek!

If you like GORGEOUS toys and texture, this one is for you! This is by far the prettiest toy I own. Plus, it's a jellyfish, and it glows in the dark! What! Beware of the texture, though; it's really intense. You definitely need to be comfortable with extremely textured toys to enjoy this one, but if you are, you should love it.
GORGEOUS, glows in dark, 100% silicone, harness and anal compatible, no smell, minimal packaging
extreme texture combined with girth was too much for me
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Jellyfish is a harness-compatible dildo that can be used both vaginally and anally (it has a flared base). I only tested it vaginally and…it didn't really work for me. It's pretty big and it has a LOT of texture. Too much texture. I could hardly thrust with it, even moving it really really slowly just wasn't comfortable at all. It's not a G-spotter either; it's straight and flexible, so even with the pronounced head it's unlikely to hit you there. However, if you're a fan of texture and girth, this should be a fantastic toy for you.

If you like the Jellyfish, it should work well in most situations—the only thing to be wary of is really the texture. Personally I'd only want to use this solo, since I wasn't at all comfortable with rapid thrusting, so I'd want to control the speed myself.

Material / Texture

The Jellyfish is 100% silicone. The material is really "grabby" (as opposed to slippery), and it's pretty attracted to lint and dust, so you'll probably need to clean it right before using. The toy will squish slightly if you squeeze it and it's flexible but still firm: if you push on the top it will compress slightly but not bend, but if you push from the side you can bend it in half without damaging it.

It has a slight plastic-y smell, but it isn't noticeable—I can only smell it with my nose right beside it. No taste as far as I can tell.

The Jellyfish is EXTREMELY textured. Personally I found the texture a bit much—I couldn't comfortably use it for thrusting, even very slowly. Even with a lot of lube the texture was still too much for me. If you're new to texture or dislike it, definitely give the Jellyfish a miss; you won't enjoy it. On the other hand, if you're more experienced and want more texture, then this could be a really good choice for you.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Jellyfish is why I bought this toy—it's a JELLYFISH! I love jellyfish. Despite the fact that it's still pretty obviously phallic, you can tell it's supposed to be a jellyfish. I don't really think it can be called discreet. You could try to pass it off as a sculpture, but most people are going to be able to tell what it's intended use is. While it isn't quite ornamental enough to leave out without someone commenting, it's still really pretty. The pink is almost translucent, contrasting really nicely with the darker blue underneath, and the whole thing sort of glistens.

Plus, it glows! In the dark! I'm a total sucker for glowing toys, and the Jellyfish does not disappoint. (FYI, the best way to quickly "charge" a glow toy is to put it in front of a blacklight: the light is higher intensity so you don't have to wait at all!) The blue section doesn't glow, which is kind of neat because it's only the jellyfish itself that lights up.

The Jellyfish is a pretty big toy. It's 7" long (6" insertable), 1.75" across at the widest part of the head, and 1.5" across for most of the shaft. The texture makes it feel even bigger, so this really isn't a beginner's toy—avoid it if you don't have much experience with girthier toys. I've used similarly sized toys comfortably before, but because of the texture I had some problems with this one.

The size doesn't make it terribly travel-compatible. It's less obvious than a realistic dildo, but less discreet than some of the artier toys coming out now. Basically, you could travel with it, but it's probably not the best choice.
    • Whimsical / artistic


The Jellyfish has a flat base and is harness-compatible. Unfortunately, I don't have a harness (yet!) so I couldn't test that aspect. The flat base does mean it can rest on a table or chair, but it's not a suction cup, so it isn't very stable. I tried this, and, well, it sort of worked. It isn't really worth it, though; it's much better to use your hands (or a friend's hands).

I've seen someone comment somewhere that this has a bullet hole in the base—mine didn't. If you order directly from the manufacturers, I believe you can specify whether you want a hole or not, but if you order from EF, as far as I know you'll get one without a bullet hole. So I can't comment on how effective that is.

Care and Maintenance

The extreme texture this toy has means that it's quite difficult to clean thoroughly. I always seem to miss a couple little spots and end up having to clean it twice. It's silicone, though, so you can boil it or put it in the dishwasher. I don't have a dishwasher and I share pots with roommates, so I haven't tried either of those methods, but I'd imagine that would make cleaning quite a bit easier. If you hand wash it, double check it afterwards to make sure you've gotten all the mess off.

It's pretty easy to store—if you have slightly oblivious friends you might be able to leave it out and call it a sculpture. It's certainly artistically crafted (but admittedly slightly phallic). I store it in a cotton bag I sewed, with the rest of my toys. It isn't oddly shaped or super large, so however you usually store your toys should work for this one.

Silicone lube could damage this toy, so make sure to stick with water-based lube. If you're dead set on using silicone lube, make sure you do a patch test to see if it will damage the material.
    • Easy to store
    • Hard to clean


The packaging for the Jellyfish is extremely minimal—which I loved! It came in a ziplock bag, with a card that has some information about the company (Whipspider Rubberworks) and advice about how to care for the toy. The card can be recycled and the ziplock could be reused; it's really nice to not have tons of useless (or graphic) packaging to deal with. It wouldn't be great for a fancy gift, but otherwise it's pleasantly minimal. You could use the ziplock for storing the toy, but it might not be the best choice.

Personal comments

Personally, this toy didn't work for me. I think I'm just not experienced enough to really work with it; I got overwhelmed by the combination of texture and girth. That said, it's a well designed, absolutely gorgeous toy, so it still gets a good rating! I'm still keeping it around; it's just too pretty to get rid of!
Follow-up commentary
I've tried this toy a lot of different ways, and I still can't make it work for me. The texture would be fine on a thinner toy, and the size would be fine on a less textured toy, but as it is, I just can't use it comfortably. It's so sad!

    Nice review! This is such a gorgeous toy. I think the texture would be too much for me as well, but I'm still tempted. I mean...look at it! And it glows in the dark!

    I'm so torn between buying this toy just because it is a stunning work of art and ditching it because I too am not crazy about about too much texturing. thanks for the insight. Eventually I'll make a decision!
