Review: Vixen Creations – Maverick

Vixen Creations Maverick

With its intense neon green, impressively large, I’m-totally-gonna-eff-you-up glory, I can’t help but think that if the Incredible Hulk had a penis, Maverick is what it would look like, albeit massively larger.

And with that thought, I am at once both terrified and excited that in my world things like this exist… and it’s my job to play with them.

I mean shit, just look at it, it’s amazing! Now if only I could get my hands on a Thor or Iron Man replica, I’d be in heaven.

It certainly doesn’t help that each time I’ve brought it out my mind wanders to thoughts of Mark Ruffalo, Eric Bana, and Edward Norton, whom if combined, may just be responsible for creating the best Super Hero cock that ever there was.  Of course it’s not an actual mould of the Incredible Hulk, nor any of the drool worthy actors that have played the part, but it’s as close as I’m gonna get, and I’m alright with that.

Packaging

I’ve always loved the transparent Vixen Creations tubular packaging. There’s just something eye catching and fun about it. As far as descriptions go there’s nothing rude, crude, tacky or cheap, instead providing the necessary info you’d need to make an informed decision as well as cleaning/care instructions. There’s also the adorable fox logo I’ve come to love, but that’s it.

*For those of you that value total discretion the sticker(s) can be removed so there’s literally nothing on it.

The Good

From the opaque white flared base to the bright UV glowing fluor-a-green, a girthy yet squishy body to the pronounced ridging on the shaft, this dildo is nothing to balk at. Much like another beast, the Tantus T-Rex, Maverick is impressive and overwhelming, daunting and exhilarating, in the most inspiring of ways. Gladly it’s not as girthy as the T-Rex, making insertion, and the ensuing enjoyment far easier to achieve.

But still… it’s a beast, and should be treated as such.

As for the many other reasons it’s garnered my utmost respect…

Like all Vixen Creations the outer texture is supple, squishy, and pliable, allowing it to conform to the bodies curves and orgasmic contractions in a truly unique way; it’s almost as if I can feel it pulse and throb with me in a gentle rhythmic motion as I climax. Adding to the experience is a firm inner core offering something for the body to grab hold of and cling to when things get all-consuming, as they often do when wielding something of this stature.

Baring a urethral opening, glans, corona, frenulum, and what appears to be a retracted forskin, it’s as close to a penis in appearance as a neon colored dildo could possibly get. More that than, with the exception of the slightly tacky feeling, the smooth yet matte texture is surprisingly skin like. I hate to reduce my ‘penis skills’ (yeah, I said it), but if the lights were off and I didn’t know better, I just might think it was the real thing. I said might.

With two raised ridges on the shaft, one highly distinguishable, the other not-so-much, Maverick offers lovely g-spot stimulation during gentle thrusting as each bump graces across the area causing an explosion of sensations. It’s not going to offer the same type of stimulation firmer toys like the Lelo Ella, Bent Graduate, Chavez Dezignz Jollie, or Njoy Pure Wand can, but what it provides is more than decent, and definitely enough to help achieve an orgasm.

This bad boy is thick, really thick. Okay, it’s not quite as bad as my dino friend, but it’s more than enough to fill me entirely. Like I’ve said before, I don’t really have an affection for the well endowed, more often than not finding the experience to be one that brings discomfort rather than delight, but Maverick is different… maybe it’s because it’s squishy and therefore eases in without much force. Maybe it’s because each time I use it I’m exhaustingly determined to follow through. Or maybe it’s because it’s badass, either way, different is definitely good.

Whether you want something to use in a harness, vaginally, for anal play, or to ride while it’s suction cupped to a surface, the large flared base grants pretty much anything your little heart could dream up, and does so quite well. My only suggestions, don’t stick it to a textured surface since it won’t stay put for long, anal play will likely require lots of lube to make things more comfortable, and with a weight of just over 16 oz, make sure your harness is snug since the heft might pull it down a bit.

I know I keep touching on it, but in a market flooded with various shades of pink, blue, pastel, and purples, the vivid neon color is a welcome change of pace. Even more flattering is the stunning opalescent creamy base, complete with turquoise swirls and a sheen that’s truly breathtaking. I’d actually love to see a full dildo with that coloring, I think it would be quite the sight.

Having said that, I’ve found Maverick is at its best when viewed under UV/Black lights, taking on a pale greenish blue hue that’s no less than mesmerizing. Sure, many people probably don’t have them readily available in their home, but the purchase of one bulb will take the experience from wow to WHOA!  Just don’t go cheap on the bulb, otherwise the effect will likely get washed out. I’d suggest an 18″ bulb w/ fixture kit, you can get them starting at $9.99, which is more than reasonable.

Almost everything they make is surprisingly flexible and resistant to tearing, ripping or peeling, offering a longer lifespan than many other lesser quality products, and unlike other manufacturers, i.e. big mass producers of the jelly garbage you see in most stores, Vixen Creations offers a lifetime replacement guarantee on their goods.  Of course this doesn’t actually have anything to do with using them, but knowing that they stand behind their products to this extent fills me with confidence.

Stats: With such impressive stats Maverick is nothing to take lightly… in total your looking at just under 8″ inches in length, 7 of which are fully insertable, a diameter of 2″ inches, and a girthy circumference of 6″ inches. Compared to the T-Rex, another dildo that was significantly challenging for me,  it’s an inch longer, however the pliability of the silicone mixed with the one inch difference in girth, makes a world of difference where usability is concerned.

Care & Cleaning

Because it’s a high quality silicone, and not some shady mix of silicone and who-knows-what, it can be easily cleaned with soap and water or by boiling for 3 minutes. Regarding lubes I’d only suggest a good water based lube as a silicone one would likely ruin it over time.

The Bad

As discussed earlier, it’s large… making it a product that will likely be too large for some. For me it was a bit much, but once relaxed and fully engaged, I found it to be most pleasing. If you still think it might be too large my suggestion is to go for the Mustang instead; it’s a half inch smaller, in both girth and length, which may make it far more comfortable. Don’t worry, it also comes in Florescent colors and various skin tones for those that want a more ‘realistic’ option. If you want the same quality, don’t mind a skin tone, but want something even smaller, go for Tex. It’s just as good but without the fun colors.

It attracts lint, but you knew that was coming. Meh, it’s not that big of a deal and doesn’t really interfere with performance, it’s just a pet peeve issue… one I’m working on with an over priced therapist. <- kidding, with all the time/money I spend on sex toys I don’t have anything left over for “real” therapy.

Because of the matte and slightly tacky texture you’ll need a fair amount to lubricant or the drag on the skin will likely be uncomfortable, leaving much to be desired. Basically put, do both yourself and Maverick a favor, and lube up.

Along with being large it’s also got a surprising amount of weight behind it, making maneuverability a bit of a challenge. Having said that it’s not necessarily a downfall, just something to keep in mind.

Final Verdict

When I first got my hands on Maverick I was admittedly a little intimidated, but with the size, coloring and weight, how could I not be? I mean shit, everything combined makes it a pretty intense product, let alone an experience. Yet looking back now, knowing everything I do, I can’t help but chastise myself for being so silly; Maverick, in all it’s glory, is a dildo I’ve come to adore – nay, embrace – because it’s everything I want… and then some. Power Girl would be impressed!

Review: Vixen Creations – Buddy Butt Plug

Vixen Creations BuddyWhile revising a bunch of reviews a month ago I came to the realization that my inclusion of butt plugs and anal toys was seriously lacking. Sure, I’ve covered the basics of anal play, but with the exception of reviewing an anal douche and a Swarovski butt plug, I really haven’t branched out very much.

Always one for pushing limits and trying something new, I took it upon myself to grab a few goodies just so I could review them for all of you. Included in the mix was a small black Tantus silk, Vixen Creations Buddy in the ‘must have’ limited edition glittery silver, a fantastically neon green Tantus Ryder and a rather intimidatingly large set of Tantus butt beads in an awe inducing neon blue called “Peacock” (they were on sale and I couldn’t help myself). For today’s review I’ll be covering the Vixen Creations Buddy… and working myself up to the beads through the series of reviews that cover the others. As it stands, my ass is nowhere near ready to take them at this point. To follow my progress the reviews make sure to subscribe to my RSS feed or add me on twitter as I’ll be tweeting the hell out of them once the reviews are done.

Packaging

One of the things I loved about a previous Vixen Creations product I reviewed (Tex) was the unexpected and highly original tubular packaging. Not only is it quite different from many other boxed or clam shell designs (that often get tossed in the garbage once the product is removed), it’s very easy to store and meant to be reused. Even better, there’s ample room inside to store a small bottle of lube, some condoms and any other little sample sized products you might have lying around. As with many other high end intimate accessories there is nothing on it that’s rude, crude, tacky or cheap, instead only offering a brief description of the Companies products and cleaning/care instructions. There’s also the adorable fox logo I’ve come to love, but that’s it. *For those of you that value total discretion the sticker can be removed so there’s literally nothing on it.

The Good

As I expected there’s quite a bit to love with Buddy; first and foremost the silicone is highly squishy, supple, smooth and flexible making it very accommodating and surprisingly comfortable. More than that, once inserted it doesn’t create that awkward “get-it-out-of-my-ass-now” sensation many other firm products beget.

Speaking of silicone, Buddy is non-toxic, phthalate and latex free, odourless, tasteless, hypo-allergenic, hygienic, and non-porous so it doesn’t require the same heavy duty cleaning a TPR, TPE or PVC product may require.

*For the record I don’t suggest anything but non-porous materials for anal play as they’ll store bacteria, lube and bodily fluids every time they’re used. Even worse, they can’t be fully sterilized. Yuck. Vixen Creations Buddy

The tapered tip and graduated body makes insertion effortless, allowing it to slide in place without any discomfort or force. Of course relaxing a bit before helps, as does a small amount of good water based lube. Quite surprisingly the rounded thicker lower portion allows it to stay in place nicely once inserted, adjusting with the body as you shift, flex or move. For me it was a nice change from my Small Ripple whose last rounded bulb I often struggle to keep in place (it always ‘pops’ out right before I’m about to orgasm*).

Size wise it’s not too big and not too small, instead being just right. I personally think it’s the size that makes it suitable for just about everyone; whether you’re inexperienced and afraid rear insertion might hurt or familiar with anal play but not in need of something too girthy or long, you’ll likely find Buddy to be a worthy contender. Actually, I was rather surprised when I got it as I expected it would be larger than the 4″ inches in length and 1 1/4″ in diameter it sports (it’s 3 1/2″ insertable). Even with looking at the measurements online I still thought it would be bigger and much closer to the Medium Tantus Silk, clearly I’m not good with mentally picturing inches in my head. Having said that, while it’s relatively small, by no means is it lacking in the sensation department. You’ll feel it, all of it, it just likely won’t come with the ‘full’ feeling a larger plug would offer.

Fortunately the base makes removal easy, and fits between the butt cheeks without being annoying or painful. On top of all that it’s seamless leaving you worry free when it comes to potential internal scrapes or scratches.  On that note, because it’s got a flared base it’s also compatible with most harnesses, though I don’t know if it’s the kind of product I’d want to use for strap-on play. Then again, wtf do I know?

*Regarding the orgasm part, while it is a possibility, very rarely do women get off from anal play alone. Instead many will also require clitoral play or something inserted vaginally to aide in the experience. Having said that, if you’ve previously crammed something in your butt thinking it would be the end all, be all, only to find yourself coming short, don’t worry you’re perfectly normal and it’s to be expected.

Finally, it’s got silver sparkles so your ass is all blinged up and glittery. That in itself makes it worthy of putting in my butt.

All jokes aside (who says I was joking?), the body is transparent and glossy with layer upon layer of exceptionally shiny silver square sparkles.  Even when looking deep within the body they’re there, less shiny of course, but still there. I actually have no idea how they did it, but you can’t feel any of the sparkles on the surface, something that totally surprised me. I even tried to gently pick one out, didn’t happen.  For those not impressed with sticking sparkly things in your rear it also comes in gold, black and purple versions.

Care And Cleaning

Because it’s a high quality silicone and not some shady mix of silicone and who-knows-what it can be easily cleaned with soap and water or by boiling for 3 minutes. Regarding lubes I’d only suggest a good water based lube as a silicone one would likely ruin it over time.

The Bad

When it came to things I didn’t like about Buddy there was only one, but being that it’s a silicone product that’s somewhat glossy it was highly expected: it attracts lint and fluff, but it’s minimal when compared to other silicone products.

Final Verdict

If you’re looking for a butt plug made of body safe material that’s easy to insert, supple, squishy and flexible, while also being comfortable, accommodating and surprisingly discreet I highly suggest taking the Vixen Creations Buddy into consideration. Aside from being impressed with the basic design, the level of quality will probably leave you looking through the entire Vixen Creations collection and wondering which will be your next. Yes, they are that good! *I’ve personally had my eyes on Raquel, Mavrick and  Tristan.

Review: Vixen Creations Tex Dildo

Vixen Creations Tex dildoBefore I get into the actual review I just want to express that when it comes to realistic dildos I can be rather picky: they can’t be too long or thick (I’m far from a “size queen“), must be made of pure silicone (or another quality, body safe material), can’t be flimsy or low quality, must be easy to insert, comfortable, somewhat flexible, compatible with a harness and have to feel at least slightly like the “real thing” (a term I actually hate), if not damn near perfectly close… even with everything on the market those are fairly hard shoes to fill, especially if you want all of the above.

Thankfully there’s a company that does a pretty fan-fucking-tastic job of it, with the Vixen Creations Tex dildo being just one of many.

Packaging

The product comes nicely packaged in a tubular container that’s easily recyclable, and while there aren’t any images or wording to suggest what it is, the fact that the main part of the container is translucent is pretty much a dead giveaway.  Discreet? not really. Professional? sure. Inventive and fun? Hells yeah.

For those wanting a bit more discretion, you could easily peel off the brand/logo/information stickers, place a layer of colored paper inside (which would remedy the see through issue) and use it as storage for Tex, a small bottle of compatible water based lube, toy cleaning wipes and/or some condoms.

The Good

Not only does Tex look and feel ‘real’, it’s body safe, made of quality silicone, easy to care for and clean, doesn’t contain harmful phthalates, is latex free (for those with allergies), is non porous and won’t absorb lube, bacteria or bodily fluids, has a slight curve for g- spot stimulation, resists tearing, warms quickly, retains heat nicely and best of all comes with an unbeatable lifetime warranty!   In a nutshell,  this dildo is a badass!!

One of the things I specifically liked about the product was the realistic appearance; from the retracted foreskin, slight wrinkling and squishy glans, to the protrusion of the urethra on the underside, it’s what I would consider a penile comparison to the realism of the Fleshlight vagina.

Being that it only measures 5″ in total length and 1.75″ in width, I think pretty much anyone could take it quite nicely without much fear it would hit the cervix (which could possibly cause more pain than pleasure), while still being able to enjoy the “fullness” it has to offer. As for the g-spot curve, it isn’t very extreme, just enough to offer slight stimulation while thrusting or squeezing of the kegels.

It also works rather well in a harness due to its flared base making it fantastic for couples that are looking for something realistic to add to their experimentation or bedroom play.

Aside from being wonderfully accommodating in regard to size, Tex is flexible, has a super squishy “tip” (think head/glans of the penis), has the texture of skin and maintains a solid internal core. It’s this internal core that (for me anyways) made it very easy to insert, yet still felt soft,  supple and extremely comfortable.

On that note, part of what makes it so realistic is the use of their special VixSkin™ material an *”exclusive formula that contains a premium silicone lubricant (just like that used in the most popular silicone lubes), suspended between the molecules, giving a more realistic feel and greater elasticity” .  Quite honestly, I’ve yet to feel a product that’s as close to the “real thing” as this!

For those of you not into  the chocolate color, Tex also comes in Vanilla (light flesh color) and Caramel (medium skin tone).

Care and Cleaning

In regard to lubricants I would only suggest a good water based one that’s low in glycerin as a silicone lube would very likely ruin it. (Products this fantastic should not be ruined)

Because it’s made of non porous silicone it can be cleaned in a few ways; you can use a premium toy cleaner, mild antibacterial soap & water (making sure to rinse it well), sterilize it by running through the dishwasher or you can boil it for three minutes. Which ever way you choose to clean it, I suggest you let it air dry as it can pick up lint from a towel or cloth rather easily.

The Bad

When it came to things I didn’t like about the product I was at a loss, a very rare treat for me.  There is literally nothing I dislike.

Final Verdict

If you’re looking for a realistic, durable and extremely well made dildo, you don’t have to look much further; from his skin like texture to the the comfortable feel, ability to insert anally or vaginally, harness compatibility and superior quality, the Tex dildo by Vixen Creations has everything you need and then some.
