The Force Wasn't With Me

The Reversible Glow-in-the-Dark Sleeve by California Exotics is unfortunately, a stretchy sleeve that does not live up to it's name. Despite the major shortcomings, this sleeve will add a little bit of thickness to a small vibrator as well as large cocks with extreme girths without completely desensitizing the wearer.
Very stretchy.
Did not glow. Plasticky feel.

extremely useful review
[When I received the Reversible Glow-in-the-Dark Sleeve I had high hopes. I envisioned being able to turn my cock into a light saber and go all Luke Skywalker on my wife's pussy. Unfortunately, there must have been a short circuit in my saber as it didn't light.]

The Reversible Glow-in-the-Dark Sleeve by California Exotic is made out of highly stretchy TPR. This particular blend of TPR has so much give that it will fit penises of very large girths. The sleeve is 5.5" long and will cover a good amount of your shaft. The thicker you are, the less length it will cover, but due to the extreme amount of stretch it has, you'll be pleased with how much skin it can actually cover. The TPR is also just a little thicker than a condom so while you can't feel as much during sex as you would bareback, the sleeve doesn't completely obliterate all feeling and the wearer will still be able to receive some stimulation.

When holding the TPR in your hands it feels slick, pliable, and seems as if it would be comfortable. Unfortunately, when it's stretched and situated tautly over your penis, it has a very plasticky feel. If your partner is sensitive and does not enjoy rubbery or plastic materials, this sleeve will disappoint with its unforgiving material composite. The exterior nodules intensify the plasticky feeling but when wearing the sleeve inside out the ribbed side is a little less obtrusive.

The only time the material of the sleeve becomes an issue is during sex when a penis or sex toy is thrusted continuously. If you just insert the sleeve while it is over a vibrator and do not move it in and out of your vagina or ass, the hard texture is not a problem. However, if you're primarily purchasing the sleeve for fast paced penetration you may experience the feeling of being rubbed raw or some mild chaffing.

The main feature of the Reversible Glow-in-the-Dark Sleeve is that it should in fact, glow. Speaking personally, the one I received did not. I've spent the last 3 weeks experimenting with the sleeve to get it to glow. I left it on a windowsill, under various lamps, in a bright room, you name, I tried it and at the end of the day, it stayed the same shade of minty alien green. So did it glow? No.

The sleeve should be used with a water based lubricant only and washed with soap and water or a toy cleaner. As TPR is still somewhat porous, cover the sleeve with a condom if you share it amongst various partners. California Exotics promises that the Reversible Glow-in-the-Dark Sleeve is Safe & Pure but unfortunately, does not specify whether or not it is phthalates-free.

If you're looking for a textured sleeve to wear during sex or over a vibrator, the Reversible Glow-in-the-Dark Sleeve by California Exotics is not a bad way to go. While it didn't glow and had a plasticky feel, it did have a lot of stretch which was very much appreciated.

    Great review Average Joe! It sucks that it wouldn't glow for you. That would have been one of my main reasons for wanting it. Oh well, if you happen to run across the perfect light saber in the future, let me know! Winking
