Hard throb indeed.

This toy is a delight to own. Great size. Great price. The vibrations were a little underwhelming, but that's not a big deal when I'm being that filled up.
It's so real looking and feeling. Great size.
It smells awful. Needs a bigger base to hold on to. Weak vibrations.

The Hard throb is pretty much a toy for anyone who wants some substance to their toy. It's definitely not for first timers, but anyone with a little bit of experience should give it a go. I love the girth of it, but sadly, I could only fit about half the massive toy in me. The vibrator is located in the top of the shaft, which is perfect, because that's the part that I could get in.

Before using the Hard Throb, I'd recommend a little foreplay and some lube, unless you're used to playing with toys and cocks of this size. I was met with a little resistance, but once in, I didn't want it to ever leave me again. I only had the courage to use this vaginally, but it could be used anally with the highly experienced people out there.

I enjoyed using this for solo sessions, preferably when used with a bullet vibe for clit stimulation. Got me off countless times that way. My husband also enjoyed using it on me as well. He enjoyed making me squirm with something that large and could use it harder and faster then if it was an actual cock. Made me orgasm deliciously every time.

Material / Texture

The Hard Throb is delightful to touch. It feels so much like a real cock. This is due to the rubber it's made out of. For the few downfalls rubber toys have, they more then make up in the look and feel.

The color is realistic, and it feels wonderful. It has the spongy texture a real cock has, while still being firm thanks to the internal tube. Grabbing it is like grabbing the real thing. The blueish veins and wrinkles add to the overall realism of the toy. The head is even a slightly rosier pink then the shaft.

The biggest problem with rubber is the smell. It doesn't get better with time or washing either. It's a slight turn off, but I don't plan on using it where I can smell it.

Design / Shape / Size

The Hard Throb is beautiful to look at. I think it's a work of art. It is, of course, shaped like a very large, almost perfect cock. It looks like a lot of effort went into making this delightful plaything. I get turned on just by looking at it. The Hard Throb definitely hit all the right spots for me.

The shaft is covered in slightly raised veins and textured with wrinkles and bumps. It's 1 3/4 in. across, which is a nice girth. It's not for someone new to sex toys, but for someone with a little experience, the size is perfect. All it takes is a little foreplay (clit play for me), and it slides right in. Just make sure either you or the toy is well lubricated.

It's length was a little long for me, I couldn't fit more then half of the toy in me, but it made it a bit easier to grip and thrust with then. It was satisfying and I felt filled completely the minute it entered.

With its size it's very noticeable, and not the easiest thing to travel with, unless you're taking a larger bag and don't mind the possibility of people discovering secret (or not so secret) playmate.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Hard Throb did not impress me with it's mechanical performance. I found the vibrations weak and disappointing. My favorite toys all have varying vibration settings, with the highest always being a strong buzz, maybe stronger then most other people prefer. This one didn't have that.

It has a turn dial for the base (which was annoying on it's own) that didn't provide too much variation in the speed. The Hard Throb didn't have quite enough power to make me orgasm from the vibrations, which was disappointing as well. The vibes do travel through the whole shaft, but are mainly located in the head area, which is a plus, but they're just not strong vibrations.

It's a quiet toy, which is nice for a change. There are very few toys I own that are discreet (sounding, this one is far from discreet looking). I guess it's either power or quiet. It uses 2C sized batteries, so make sure you have some on hand.

It's not waterproof, so please refrain from trying to use it while showering or bathing. I don't think that would end the way most people would be hoping for.

Care and Maintenance

Rubber is silicone and water based lube friendly, but should always be used with a condom due to it's porous material. It's extremely wear-resistant, but using the condom will help make it last longer.

It's made of one of those materials that attract everything and anything. I store the Hard Throb in the plastic bag it came in after it's air dried completely. It then goes in my toy box because my one cat likes to chew on things made of silicone and rubber (lost a couple toys that way).

To clean it, use warm water and a mild soap. Needs to be rinsed really well, as the left over soap residue can damage the rubber and irritate the skin.
