A fantastic masturbator for transmen

As a pre-op trans man on hormones, it can be pretty hard to find male masturbators that will fit my unique anatomy. The Gia Darling is a great option and worked really well for my hormonally enlarged clitoris. I was able to have penetrative sex with a pretty well made toy, and I enjoyed the process immensely. This toy will likely be too constricting for most men, but for the guys on the smaller side, it's a fantastic choice.
Small entrance great for trans men
Requires regular cleaning and dusting
Probably too small for most cis-men
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is a handheld masturbator modeled after a mtf transsexual. Due to the VERY small entrance hole, (which is likely too small for most cis-men,) I was able to use it very effectively on my trans cock, or hormonally enlarged clitoris. I use it only for solo self-love sessions with ample amounts of Astroglide.

I typically pump before using the toy, as it gets me a little harder and more able to penetrate, then I just do a pretty standard male jack off routine. It's a very rewarding feeling for a trans guy to be able to really penetrate something, so it's definitely become my favorite way to masturbate.

The toy has mild ridges on the inside which create a very nice sensation, without being "too much."

Material / Texture

The toy is made of a material called futurotic and is somewhat lifelike, although cyberskin definitely wins in that category. The material will get tacky with use, so the manufacturer has included a small container of toy dust (which is most likely something similar to corn starch, although the packaging doesn't say) to use to keep the toy feeling like it did when you bought it. Futurotic is phthalate and latex free, but is also extremely porous, so it is relatively hard to keep sanitary. It should also only be used with water based lubes, as silicone based lubes will eat at the material.

The material is very soft and squishy. This is nice for trans guys to get a good position with the toy, but I would have preferred something with slightly less give.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The toy is modeled after a pre-op transwoman and has a pretty standard pocket pussy layout otherwise. It is shaped like a woman from the shoulders down and the entrance end of it has a small phallus and an anal entrance. The toy look surprisingly nice. I wasn't expecting much for a masturbator, but I was pretty pleased with the look of the breasts and butt of the model (the phallus didn't really take away or give anything to it for me).

As far as the practical use of the toy, I can't imagine a standard sized phallus using the toy comfortably. It's just absolutely tiny! I definitely wouldn't have been able to use it without lube and I'm working with some pretty small equipment. Maybe a smaller man could use it for a tight fit, but even then, I doubt the longevity of the product with someone with typical male genitalia. I feel like it would probably rip fairly easily. It also is fairly short, (about four inches long,) so a good percentage of men will go through the exit hole if they attempt to bottom out with the toy.

However, for trans men, it works really well. As another reviewer mentioned, the entrance hole is nearly flush with the toy, so the vast majority of your parts will be encased. It also grips better than any other masturbator because it's just so tiny.

The toy is obviously not very discreet. People will know that you are carrying around a male masturbator. It is pretty small (about four inches long) so it wouldn't be hard to put in your luggage somewhere.
    • May be too tight for some
    • Realistic
    • Tight fitting

Functions / Performance / Controls

The toy is a little noisy, (as much as any male masturbator,) but it's nothing that anyone in the next room would be able to hear. I was able to get a pretty good session with the toy and particularly enjoyed the light ribbing inside. It provided great stimulation without being ridiculous.
    • Easy to use
    • Feels realistic

Care and Maintenance

The toy needs to be washed with warm water and soap after use due to futurotic's porous nature, and preferably powdered after use to keep it from feeling too sticky. It's nothing complicated and it's really a habit that one should have with all intimate toys.

I currently store the toy in the basic plastic bag it comes packaged in and keep it with the rest of my toys in a box. The toy should be kept in a cool, dry place to prevent any melting or mold growth and should also be kept in a plastic bag to prevent contact with other toys. The porous material really does need to looked after.

As mentioned before, use only water based lubes with the toy, as silicone based lubes will negatively impact the surface.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The toy comes in a pretty standard sex toy box with the model on the front. I wouldn't recommend using the box for storage, as it isn't particularly sturdy or discreet (to say the least). There were no instructions in the box, but it's pretty easy to figure out what you're supposed to do.

The toy is packaged with a small container of dust (which is a nice bonus), but once you use it up, I recommend keeping a small container or bag of corn starch to keep the toy (and ones like it) feeling fresh. The toy is also packed in a plastic bag, which I recommend that you hang on to to store the toy in once you put it in a separate drawer or toy box.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable
Follow-up commentary
The material has begun to break down at this point, but that's fairly common for the kind of realistic skin feeling materials on the market. I don't use it as often, but for the price and occasional switch up, it's a good time.

    unfortunate that this is discontinued. i'd like to see ef add a toy category for items like this that could be used by transguys. it's really hard to tell by just the product pages. thanks for the review.
