Three Ways From Sunday

Penis sheaths are sort of a hit or miss proposition, so how does one make them more appealing? Why, just slap a vibrator in there! The toy material is comfortable and stretchy while the vibrator is compact and powerful, but how often do you say to yourself, "Golly I wish my penis were twice as big around, blue, and growing two vibrating dolphins out the top!"
Comfortable fit, powerful vibrator, nice design.
Awkward to use, poor vibration transfer, intimidating.

extremely useful review


The 3-Way Double Dolphin from Cal Exotics is a soft, jelly-like sleeve that fits over the penis to add texture and girth. Two sculpted dolphins protect a powerful little bullet vibrator mounted at the base. The dolphins do their part by looking good and transferring vibrations up to the clitoral region of your partner not unlike their cousin the Rabbit.

Being a sleeve, the Double Dolphin necessitates having a partner with whom to share the experience. The bullet vibe doesn't have quite enough power to affect the wearer so the vibrating component exists solely for the enjoyment of the receiver.

The packaging states that the Double Dolphin is "Thicker, Bigger, and Stimulating". I take this to mean there was a previous model that was neither thicker nor bigger at some point. It is worth mentioning that the Dolphin is designed to fit up to a two inch girth penis and once in place is quite large. Too large for beginners I would say if my rapidly retreating partner is any indication.

Material / Texture

The Double Dolphin is made up of a mixture of TPR and Plastic to give a very soft material much like soft jelly. Plastic on its own is generally non-porous but in this mixture the TPR is a semi-porous material which brings the safety level of this item down a bit. Because the material is so soft, using a condom is ungainly and difficult. Since both TPR and Plastic can be cleaned with either soapy water or antibacterial wipes, dispense with the condom and do your cleanup afterward.

The Dolphin itself has textured nubs along the inside of the shaft while the outside is smooth with a few ridges. I found that since the Dolphin did not move once in place, the nubs did not accomplish much. The ridges on the outer shaft did provide some sensation to my partner since they became very firm once the Dolphin was stretched tight and in place.
    • No odor
    • Somewhat porous
    • Very soft

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

As you might expect of a sleeve toy, the Double Dolphin fits very snugly around the penis. Since the TPR blend material is so soft however, the toy does not restrict blood flow or feel uncomfortably tight. The design of the toy is such that it sits on the lower part of the penis shaft. By keeping the head of the penis exposed, the toy allows the wearer to experience little loss of sensation.

The artistic design of the toy is fairly interesting also. When I put it on and whirled to face my partner, the two dolphins bobbed up and down invitingly while the taut sleeve material glistened under the candlelight. She laughed for no less than 5 minutes.

The trouble with a toy like this is it looks ridiculous. If you look at any vibrator with a clitoral attachment, you see a very functional item that does not stand out as a particularly odd design. When you see such an attachment on a human being however, the brain shifts without a clutch and you blow out your transmission. It is just too silly. My partner could not take it seriously, not because of any functional failing on the designer's part, but because of the very nature of the thing.
    • Only fits on penis shaft
    • Tight fitting
    • Will fit most men

Functions / Performance / Controls

As stated, the Double Dolphin has a bullet vibrator that runs on three watch cell batteries. The vibration is decently powerful. It needs to be since the jelly material is so soft it does not transfer the sensation very efficiently. Despite its proximity, I almost didn't feel the vibrator even though I was wearing it. The bullet has a small o-ring so luckily it is a perfectly waterproof item.

When loading the batteries you will notice a small roll of paper inside with a diagram showing the polarity placement. You may be tempted to remove this paper and throw it away but beware! Once removed, the paper no longer acts as a resistance barrier to the negative polarity wire that runs the interior of the bullet and now lies exposed. Effectively, if you take out this harmless looking piece of paper, your bullet will short itself out and burn out its own circuitry. I only barely saved mine when I noticed it had gotten extremely hot in the 30 seconds since I inserted the batteries. Keep the paper inside and all will be well.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to use
    • Not very stimulating

Care and Maintenance

This toy can be a little tricky to care for since you must clean not just the outside but the inside as well. Antibacterial wipes work for the whole thing, you just have to really cram them in there to clean out the inner lining. Being partially TPR, I recommend keeping this guy in a Ziploc bag in your toy chest. Toys like these have a bad habit of leaving a slightly oily residue on things they are in contact with for extended periods.
    • Easy to store
    • Tricky to clean

Personal comments

While I like the idea, I just don't see vibrating sleeves as being the next big thing.
Follow-up commentary
This dang thing has not been touched since the original review. It sits in a ziploc bag in my toybox, staring at me forlornly as I play with other, more practical toys. I don't intend to use it again and I would advise against any of you getting this disaster of sexual engineering.
