Manageable girth, good material, great price, simple-but-effective texture
Slim design makes it extremely bendy, difficult to hold onto when lubed up
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
At a glance, Slim doesn't look like much size and shape wise. It is a cherry red, lightweight dong with a 4-inch circumference and 8 and a half inch length. One might describe it as narrow and unimpressive, while another might call it compact and manageable. What Slim lacks in size it makes up for with texture. The veining on Slim is raised a good amount from the shaft--enough to feel every ridge as it passes through your sensitive lady (or man) bits.

As part of Doc Johnson's "Radiant Gems" collection, it is made of bright red Sil-a-Gel swirled with silvery sparkles. For a reasonable price, Sil-a-Gel is an average quality material that will hold up better than most toys. Unlike some of my other (larger) Sil-a-Gel toys, the Slim emitted only a faint odor. For once, this dildo's cherry candy-like smell was actually rather pleasant. My only regret is that more dildos are not like this.

It comes in a clear plastic clam shell package that is not overtly phallus shaped (unlike some other bubble packages I have encountered; "Yep, that's most definitely a dick. I would SO not have known otherwise!"). Without Slim or the cardboard backing in it a passerby would probably think it contained a flashlight... or a very large pen ("The penis mightier!" I seriously hope somebody has seen that skit!). The package is also a reasonable size so you could use it to safely store your dildo in as an alternative to a zip-lock bag. Slim will easily fit into a toy box, though be warned that it has a fairly sticky surface that holds onto small debris. Whatever you can place this dildo in that will minimize contact with dust, hair and fuzz is ideal. That way you won't have to run all willy-nilly to the bathroom to wash it when you're just about to commence sexytime. I sometimes have good ideas!

There are no care instructions with this toy (which I have noticed with a lot of Doc Johnson products) so check out EF's Sil-a-Gel Material Guide for more info. Its anti-bacterial nature makes condoms unnecessary for single-use solo play, but if you plan on using it in multiple orifices or for sharing with others, using a condom is a no brainer!

On its own, Slim is pleasurable but best when used in tandem with a vibrator, bullet, or massage wand. Additionally, its length allows you to achieve shallow penetration while also rubbing the thick veins against your clit as you thrust (it's bendable nature makes this easy). The orgasms it provides are not utterly stupefying but they will relax and satisfy you.
Now that I've explained all that's right with Slim, let me take a moment to explain why Slim earned but three stars. Slim isn't, by any stretch, a "bad" toy but I also would not call it great. Slim is made of Sil-a-Gel which is a firm yet cushiony material of slightly higher quality than rubber, jelly, cyberskin, and so on. Unfortunately, unlike other Sil-a-Gel toys with greater circumference (about 5 inches and up, as in the Ribbed Dong, Classic Dong, Ballsy, Titanmen Collection and so on) Slim's narrow design makes it an *extremely* bendy toy. I can literally twist it around into a tight, dick-shaped curly-q. While this isn't the worst issue a toy could have, if you like quick and/or hard thrusting this can be difficult to accomplish with Slim. (Note: This only occurs when most of the length of the toy is removed and thrust back in; short quick/hard thrusting isn't a problem.)

My biggest beef with Slim is that when using it for any longer than 3 minutes, things will inevitably get messy. Not "Wow! I just painted my room a new shade of cream" messy, but more "Damn it, I just left several hand-shaped cum prints on my bedsheets" messy. Any fluids will travel down the shaft to the scant few inches available to hold onto during play, coating your hands and anything else you touch. (Ever have to perform the "hold-ya-hands-in-the-air-and-waggle-your-butt-like-you-just-don't-care-in-order-to-get-off-the-bed maneuver? No?) If it had been made an additional inch or two longer and with a slightly flared based it would have been cherry poppin' perfection. Sadly it's not, but I don't hold it against the Slim... unless of course I'm in the mood.

"Exploratory" anal play is possible with this toy's modest girth but I would advise against it. The veins and length do offer some protection against the toy becoming lost in your anal cavity, though not enough that I would consider it entirely fool-proof. Save yourself the ER embarrassment and opt for a toy made specifically for anal play (Anal Sex Toy Selection)--preferably something with a suction cup for solo play or a handle for partners.

All in all, it's not an immensely versatile toy but when used in a particular fashion it can still satisfy most. It's an awesome beginner toy for those of you that have just begun your adventure into the world of sex toys. Even experienced users can utilize the slim in fun light play or as a means to help you warm up to larger or more intensely textured toys.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! I am equipped with the technology to reply!
Follow-up commentary
Slim may not be the biggest, baddest dildo around, but he gets the job done well enough. He remains a tried-and-true toy for when all you want is a good quickie or when you just want to relax after a long day.

    You have such a nice writing style. It was a pleasure to read this review.

    I've always thought that this one would be good if I ever want to work on my deep throating skills, which are sadly lacking.
  • nuclearn!ke
    Thanks everybody!

    @Tuesday - Slim does have a workable girth, and Sil-a-gel is so pliable and smooth that it shouldn't irritate your throat. It's also tasteless after just a few washes and airs out quickly. I would probably rinse it off before putting it in my mouth though, just because of how easily stuff clings to it.

    And I would probably need to invest in something to numb my throat, since my gag reflex insists on working so well.
