Review: Chavez Designs ~ Jollie

Jollie Dildo

arts ‘n crafts meets pleasure object

After recently obtaining the newest addition to my collection, a fuzzy polka dot filled Jollie, I came realize that when it came to the vast majority of sex toys, I’ve thrown around the words “amazing g-spot stimulation” probably more often than I should.

Yes, there are some that have brought on mind boggling orgasms, the Bent Graduate, Je Joue G-Ki, Lelo Ella, Fun Factory DeLight, and Diving Nun being a handful of them, but for the most part there are few others, in my opinion, that are able to target the area with such precision, time and time again, so effortlessly, that they’re worthy of the claim. In retrospect I can’t help but to wonder, what the hell was I thinking?!

Big thanks to the lovely folks over at Chavez Dezignz for helping me to finally get my hands on one of these badass beauties!  You guys are amazing, my vagina and g-spot thank you!


There’s no bells or whistles here. No cardboard boxes or cheap plastic clamshell packages. No scantily clad women or men, and no tacky descriptions. Definitely no product info or half assed marketing scheme. When it comes to the packaging, what you see is basically what you get, as each of their creations comes placed inside a clear plastic baggie, with nothing but a pretty little bow to accompany it.

While some may see this as cheap, I find it a very nice change of pace. No packaging means no unnecessary garbage, no need for concern should someone else get their hands on it, and no b.s. It’s eco-friendly, cost effective, cute and far more personal. Maybe it’s just me but it gives the impression that someone, rather than a big corporation, put some time, thought and care into what they were sending my way. Not a machine, not a conveyor belt, not a factory, but instead an actual person, and in a market where little touches are few and far between, that counts for something.

Deluxe Jollie by Chavez Dezignz

ergonomic handle

The Good

Let it be known that this is not a ‘thrusting’ object, quite the opposite actually; the Jollie is at it’s best when inserted and left in place while being ground upon, with the fullness, pressure on the g-spot, and depth of sensations offered acting as the essence of the experience. Sure, you could thrust it, but doing so would likely leave you wanting, waiting and disappointed. Don’t do that to the Jollie, it doesn’t deserve it.

As for the many other benefits and features…

  • With a curved body that graduates in diameter and circumference, the Jollie delivers a feeling of fullness that’s hard to match. More than that, the raised and slightly thicker middle portion offers exceptionally comfortable and redonkulously pleasurable g-spot stimulation, while the gentle bumps on the handle offer an added sensation where clitoral stimulation is concerned. This of course shouldn’t be surprising being that it’s made anatomically from the inside of a female subject. How they did that I have no clue, but damn, it certainly worked out well!
  • The silicone is supple, thick, smooth and firm, with a very slight bit of squish and give, allowing for insertion to be a highly gratifying experience. As an added bonus, the sensation of vaginal contractions around the shaft (during orgasm) were overwhelmingly intense. Again, I’m pretty sure the shape aided well with this as it fit like a hand to a glove.
Deluxe Jollie with Puff Balls

puff balls!

  • Being that most females require clitoral stimulation to get off, the Jollie’s shape makes the inclusion of other methods fairly easy to incorporate; the small loop in the handle is great for holding a larger sized bullet or thin vibe, while the rounded end cups most hand held wands surprisingly well (I tested mine with a Hitachi Magic Wand and Fairy Wand). On that note, unlike other dildos sporting either a flared or flat base, the end of the Jollie is curved allowing the fingers to fall in place almost instantly when the handle is employed.
  • Each product made by the company is crafted out of 100% silicone that’s virtually non-porous, hypoallergenic, hygienic, non-toxic and phthalate/latex free. Body safe toys for the win!
  • For those that like the idea of customization, and don’t mind paying a little more for it, be it sparkles, stars, puff balls, stickers, barbie shoes (yes I did just say BARBIE SHOES!!!), or otherwise, the folks at Chavez Dezignz are more than willing to discuss the option of making one that is totally unique. Though I will admit, it was the puff balls that got me, can we say instant love?! I think we can.
  • Finally, something I probably should have started with, each product they create is handcrafted. For some of you this probably wont garner much attention, but for me, someone who likes supporting those that do something they love, while also trying to forage their way though a market filled with less than honorable manufacturers, the fact that each one is hand poured and potentially crafted to your specifications counts for something.  I can’t help but feel better giving them my dollar than a manufacturer that’s just going to use it to continue making shitty jelly products or prey on consumers who don’t know better.

Regarding the actual measurements you’re looking at a total length of 9″ inches, with an insertable length of around 6″ inches, the first smaller portion has a circumference of 5″ inches, that graduates up to 6 1/4″ inches at the fullest and slides back down to 5″ inches just before the handle starts.

Care & Cleaning

When it comes to keeping your Jollie good as new I’d suggest only using water based lubes as a silicone version would likely ruin it. As for cleaning you can simply give it a good wash with soap and water, being that it’s crafted out of high quality silicone it wont need the same attention a lower class product would require. If you’re like me and can’t stand lint, I’d suggest you wrap it in a lint free piece of fabric or keep it inside the plastic baggie it comes it while not in use.

The Bad

Regarding my dislikes, or issues with the product I think some may have, there were a few, though I don’t think they’ll be a concern for everyone;

It attracts lint. So do most silicone products… and even though I know that it’s still a pet peeve of mine.

Being that it’s rather thick it may be too large for some. Having said that, if you like girth over length, it should be a very welcome addition. I personally loved it!

Due to the texture of the silicone, shape, and size, it may be somewhat difficult to insert without being totally lubricated.  Having said that, for as aroused as I was I found there needed to be additional lube or it created an uncomfortable drag on the skin that made me tense, creating a situation where I didn’t think I’d be able to take it. Once lube was added and it was fully inserted, AMAZING!

If you like thrusting this may not be the product for you since using it that way doesn’t do it the justice it deserves. If on the other hand you enjoy inserting products and basically leaving them to do their thing, while you busy yourself with clitoral stimulation (or whatever else gets you off), don’t hesitate. The experience was far beyond what I expected, in every good way possible.

For those that like to have uninterrupted clitoral stimulation, be it with a vibe, fingers or orally, while something else is inserted, the handle may get in the way. If you’re clever you can find a way to incorporate it into the experience (adding a vibe to the loop in the handle, using the handle to hold a thicker vibe in place against the body, or pressing a vibe directly against the Jollie to diffuse very strong vibrations are all great ideas). Of course if you’d like to avoid that all together you could opt to get a Jollet, which is essentially a Jollie minus the handle, but equally as badass.

girthy s.o.b

Finally, they’re not cheap. Well not the fun puff ball, heart filled Valentine, customized, or pretty sparkle versions anyways. If you want a Deluxe they’ll run you around $200.00. Fortunately there is the original Jollie available in 6 different colors for $100.00. In all honestly the additional elements of the Deluxe don’t affect the experience in any way when it comes to sensations, so if you don’t mind having a solid color over fun puff balls you’re in luck (or you could get an original solid Jollie and Jollet for just under the price of a Deluxe. It’s a win/win situation).

Final Verdict

Oh Deluxe Jollie, how I love thee! From the smooth and firm silicone to the adorable, fun little puff balls held within, this perfectly designed dildo is far beyond the scope of what’s currently available. Both design and appearance are beyond different, but in this case, different is most definitely good! Not only does it target the g-spot with precision, add a sensation of fullness that’s hard to match, but the basic features helped me to reach some of the strongest and most enjoyable orgasms I’ve ever had. Seriously, it’s beyond revolutionary, and that my friends, is priceless.

If you’re looking for a new pleasure object, one that’s innovative, original, body safe, quality, highly pleasurable and definitely worth every penny, you’ll want to consider adding a Jollie to your collection. Trust me, your vagina/g-spot will thank you for it later.

Review: Babes ‘n Horny ~ Kusama

Babes n Horny dildo

When it comes to the magnificent world of sex toys I like to think I’ve damn near seen it all; from Liger cocks to Religious offerings like the Diving Nun,  vibes that actually thrust to butt plugs with Swarovski Crystals embedded in the bases… and that’s just the first ones to come to mind.

Being that I’m able to say that is definitely a great ice breaker at parties, however as a sad side effect I’m starting to find myself becoming less and less enamored with many of the products companies are offering, sure they do what they’re supposed to, but for the most part they’re just rehashed versions of something that came before with little attention paid to detail, originality or creating something that’s truly spectacular – for instance, I love my pocket rocket, but does there really need to be over 100 different versions of the same friggen thing? No, no there does not.

That isn’t to say I’ve lost my love of all things pervy, silicone, or orgasm inducing, quite the contrary actually… instead of being totally blown away by everything that comfortably fits my nooks and crannies or gives me a great ‘O’, I’ve become more discerning in my tastes, only opting for those that are truly body safe, luxurious, and decidedly unique in design or appearance – all of the above if I’m lucky.

Well, you can imagine my surprise and instant adoration with the products I found on the Babes n’ Horny website (BIG thanks to @ThatToyChick for tweeting the link out); from baby blue dildos with white fluffy clouds to fauvist stripes, multicolored polka dots to ringed targets, luxurious matte hues and bright neons to camos (jungle greens, white/black and sandy desert shades), fun and playful marbling to lustrous pearly and sparkly combinations, pretty pastels to flesh tones, and glossy patents – they literally have everything I’ve ever hoped to find, all in one place, at great prices, made by people I have a huge amount of respect for (struggling artists have a special place in my heart), and all done in superior quality silicone that’s totally body safe.  As a sex toy reviewer, I live for moments like that. Amazing, just amazing!

*To view all of their colors check this page.

As for my new additions, I managed to get a lovely matte blue Naomi, a pearly and sparkly pretty pink Kate, Ohio in the amazing Yankee dildo dandy stripes and stars, a spotted Pina, and my absolute favourite a brightly striped Kusama. For todays review I’ll be covering Kusama, with written reviews of the others to follow in the coming weeks and months, and a haul video to complete the mix in the not too far off future.


When I first received my goodies I was rather surprised to see that each was minus a box or any other form of packaging, instead being wrapped in clear plastic with the name of the dildo written in marker and splayed somewhere across the front or bottom. Unsure if this was ‘standard procedure’ or just something they did being that I was getting the products for review, I wrote to the lovely Sienna asking if this was something everyone should expect, her response:

Yes, all dildos are shrink wrapped and then packed securely in discreet cardboard. We choose a box that fits as snugly as possible so that curious persons cannot squeeze them! and then packed in a generic Royal Mail envelope with only our Panda studio address on it. There is absolutely no mention of Babes-n-Horny whatsoever visible on the package. For all anyone knows it could be a part for your lawn mower(!)

From the sounds of it they’ve thought it through in a way many companies don’t,  and while some of you will likely think it’s a cheap way to go, considering they’re being shipped straight from the manufacturer I really don’t think it’s that big of a deal – do you really need a box to tell you which company made it? Aside from that, it minimizes the level of garbage they produce while also allowing them to get you product without it potentially being stopped at the border and thoroughly investigated (or held back due to what it is).

The Good 

I’m going to start with the obvious because as it relates to the vast majority of toys people buy, the main reason for buying them is often due to appearance. Sure, there are certain elements that should be considered first (like whether or not it’s body safe, easy to use, easy to care for and made by a company you can trust) but I’ve sadly often found that those who don’t know better wont buy better and base their purchase on how ‘pretty’ it is (lesson: be educated when it comes to sex toys folks!). Having said that, with the stunning design behind Kusama (and the rest of the Babes n’ Horny luxury collection of dildos), there is no reason one would have to give up quality over beauty, it fuses both in a way I’ve rarely seen.

Striped Dildo

Like my fave Rainbow Amor dildo, each of layered colors ‘pops’ against the next, with the hues being vibrant, cheery, eclectic and strikingly impressive. There’s no bleeding or fading of one shade into the next, with the lines being clean and distinct. As an added bonus there are absolutely no seams to be found whether it be along the body of the dildo, base or where the colors meet… in every way it’s as perfect as can be, and pretty stunning to boot!

*For as much as I love rainbows and my Amor, I will say my multi-striped Kusama is quite breathtaking by comparison, with the tones being brighter, more defined and the layering having a much better effect.

The silicone used is superior quality making it totally body safe, supple, exceptionally sleek, somewhat squishy and wonderfully flexible. The seamless design and gently rounded head allows for an painless insertion,  that with a bit of lube, glides in effortlessly, making it very easy to work with.

When it comes to options for use; it’s great for thrusting as the smooth body discourages friction, it can be inserted to create a feeling of fullness while letting clitoral stimulation take the lead, being that it has a flared base it can be inserted anally, used for strap-on play, or suctioned to most surfaces with the bathtub or shower walls being your best bet – regardless of how you opt to use it, the wide base works very well as a ‘handle’ allowing complete control while also providing a layer of cushioning during heavy thrusting. Having said that, the shape is fairly basic with minimal attention paid to its ability to stimulate the g-spot or p-spot… but in truth, I don’t really mind; Kusamas strength lies in the wonderful feeling of fullness it provides, being both comfortable and more than adequate.

As for the stats your looking at 6′ inches in total length with 5′ inches of that being fully insertable (the base is an inch in length), just under 4′ inches around in circumference (by my own measurements), and a diameter of just over an inch. Being that I’m not a size queen, with my Amor dildos being two of my absolute ‘go-to’ toys, I must say, Kusama is badass and definitely worthy of the same adoration and continual use.

Care & Cleaning

Because Kusama is made of a high quality silicone it can be easily cleaned using soap, water and a good rinsing. If you wanted to you could boil it, though it is made of superior quality silicone rather than a cheap silicone rubber mix, so it won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria in the same way a lesser quality material would, limiting the need for a heavy duty cleaning.

As for lubes I’d only suggest a good water based lube, and if you have issues with reoccurring yeast infections, one that’s sugar and/or glycerin free would be a good idea.

The Bad

When it comes to things I dislike about Kusama , or any of the Babes n’ Horny dildos for that matter, there is only one; they attract lint. Yes I know I’ve said it before in posts, but considering I’m not the only one with this pet peeve I feel it’s somewhat noteworthy. Other than that, it’s pretty damn fantastic!

Final Verdict

If you’re looking for a dildo that’s as visually impressive as it is unique, easy to use, comfortable and luxurious,  you really don’t need to look much further, it provides all of the above and then some. Sure, there are areas that may appear to be lacking (like the basic shape), but considering it can be used in a variety of ways, is totally body safe, feels wonderful and isn’t at all intimidating or overwhelming I’m more than willing to let them slide. It’s simple, and sometimes simple is good!

It really is so nice to find homegrown companies marketing and developing intimate accessories in such a positive, playful and professional manner. There needs to be more of this, much more, so please support them if possible they really and truly do deserve to be more mainstream… especially when you consider all the shitty products made by major manufacturers getting far more press and exposure simply because they have the money and means to back a campaign, even though the products they make are ones I’d never let 10 feet near my naughty bits.

To get more info, check out the amazing selection Babes n Horny offers, or learn more about the company, head over to their website where shopping for intimate accessories is discreet, easy and well worth the money! (I’d personally suggest eyeing the Leo in the Desert Camo, their Butt Plugs in lovely pastels, Etienne – a white version with pretty bright dots and a cast of the TS porn star Danni Daniels cock, can we say “Trophy Cock”? yeah, we can!).

Review: Divine Interventions Diving Nun Dildo

WARNING: Before I begin the review I’m just gonna throw it out there that some of you will be totally put off by the fact that I’m reviewing of a sex toy that seemingly mocks religion… if not just Nuns. Truth be told, with the exception of being Baptized Protestant, I’m not in any way shape or form religious. Do I believe in God? Kinda. Do I think there’s a Heaven? Maybe. Do I have respect for those that are religious? Certainly, so long as they’re not jamming their beliefs down my throat or judging me because they think I’m a ‘sinner’. Do I have a shit ton of fun reviewing sex toys, even ones with religious symbolism? Hells yes! Pun intended.

So… if you feel it’s necessary to remove me from whatever social site you’ve added me to, or even want to chastise me for going to such depths, be my guest. It’s a free world and I can’t stop you… besides, the Diving Nun was totally worth the unfriending and potential shit storm! She’s fucking awesome, literally, and I’d do her over and over again any day of the week! Can I get a Hallelu?!

Divine Interventions Diving Nun DildoPackaging

Unlike many other intimate accessories the Diving Nun, made by Divine Interventions, came with absolutely no packaging, instead arriving in a plain unmarked brown box with no defining wording or anything else that  might state what it was.

While others may not like this so much I personally find it a great idea, no packaging means no garbage. It also means there’s nothing to worry about someone finding and/or persecuting you for.

Divine Interventions Diving Nun – The Good

So, the awesomeness of the Diving Nun… where do I begin…

First of all the craftsmanship is extraordinary! From the details on her face (my picture’s a little iffy, but in person you can make out the eyes, nose and mouth easily) to the rosary in her hands, the inclusion of a Bandeau and raised Guimpe to the fantastic bumpy waves down the back of the shaft (likening themselves to a ripples in a nuns robe), the Diving Nun really is a work of art. Yes, I really did just say that, and yes, I really did mean it.

Divine Interventions Divind Nun Dildo ReviewRather than being firm, the shaft is very flexible, allowing it to twist and bend with ease.  Likewise, the silicone is soft, supple and squishy with a bit of give, all of which lend themselves well to making the experience not only comfortable, but also  highly enjoyable.  As far as appearances go, the matte silicone is a dark almost red wine color clever little so-and-so’s, that’s marbled with lustrous hints of a metallic slate gray.

*On the website you’ll get the options of black or marbled blue, however if you email them they’ll likely customize it to any of the their 6 shades for a small additional fee.

While it is rather large (I’ll get to that in a second) initial insertion is easy, with the waves along the bottom of the shaft providing exceptional vaginal stimulation during insertion or thrusting. As for the curve in the shaft, 3 words come to mind: Amazing. G-spot. Stimulation. I’m not exactly sure how it works, but of the 6 times the product was ‘tested’ for this review it target the area almost instantly every time. No extra effort needed. No searching required. It was like it knew, without even having to try. These design features combined made the Diving Nun one of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of reviewing. Seriously. It’s awesomeness in the shape of a dildo-ey Nun.

Diving Nun Dildo ReviewLet me not forget to add that when standing, the curve makes her look like she’s praying. Genius!

Regarding the stats you’re looking at 7 1/4 inches in length and 1 1/3 inches in diameter, with the curving making the size a little misleading in person since it appears a tad shorter. For me, being that I’m not a size queen, the length was a bit too much. Having said that I totally understand that my body is not yours, and what might be uncomfortable for me may be heaven sent for you (see what I did there? exactly).

The only odd thing about the product is the base. It’s large. Very large. Almost to the point of being obnoxious. Fortunately it serves three redeeming purposes…

1.) It suctions to pretty much any surface. I’m not kidding on this one. After picking up the box from my local postal office and quickly removing it I slammed it against the inside of the car windshield to see how long it stuck and potentially freak out my partner. For the entire hour long ride the Diving Nun bounced and bopped without once falling off. Tiled shower walls? just as good (unless you have those little tiles, then it’ll shift a bit). Bath tub? Even better. Floors? amazing. Walls? a little iffy, especially if you have texturing or wall paper (it’ll still stick, just not for as long and it might shift a little during use).

2.) Once situated inside the ring, the base works surprisingly well at helping to to stay in place during strap-on play. More than that, the triangle design allows it to fit snug against the body without the continual jabbing or shifting you’ll find with other products. If it wasn’t for the weight one could likely wear it in a harness and totally forget they had anything on, it really is that comfortable.

3.) If you’re tired of products with teeny tiny bases, ones that make holding or manipulating the product a total headache, you’ll love this base.  Not only does it add a slight cushioning during thrusting (for those that can take the whole thing), it also acts as a fantastic grip for you or your partner(s), making maneuvering and maintaining control a cinch.

Oh, and you get a “First Holy Communion” napkin to help make clean up a breeze when you’re done sinning. Yes, they went there.

Care and Cleaning

While it is made of quality silicone and therefore wont absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria, it even passed the flame test (what’s a “flame test” you ask… check this post on Silicone Flame Testing by Dangerous Lily), it does have many grooves and therefore has lots of places in need of a little extra attention. Cleaning it with antibacterial soap and water will do, as would letting it sit in boiling water for 3 minutes.

*since it’s a bit of a lint collector I’d also suggest laying it on a lint free cloth to dry and then wrapping it up in something that is also lint free.

As always, I’d personally suggest a good water based lube as a silicone one may ruin it over time.

Divine Interventions Diving Nun – The Bad

Divine Interventions Diving Nun Review

When it comes to things I don’t like about it there are only 3, though I will admit I think they’re all subjective.

1.) I’m not a size queen… and it’s long, 7 1/3 inches long, making complete insertion almost impossible, and when possible, slightly uncomfortable. Having said that, I completely understand that what my body or pleasure threshold can’t do yours potentially can, so this is something that may not apply to everyone.

2.) It attracts lint, not quite as bad as some other silicone products, but it still does. And it annoys the hell out of me.

3.) There’s no other way to say this than… you’re basically cramming a Nuns head up all up in your naughty bits. Some people, take me for example, will be able to detach from that mental image, others, not so much.

Final Verdict

All things considered the Diving Nun is quite possibly one of the most extraordinary adult products I’ve ever seen. Sure, it looks like a nun which will put quite a few people off, but if it didn’t have the facial details and tell tale signs of being a religious figure, and maybe was a little bit shorter, it would be a product I think damn near anyone would enjoy, especially since all the tell tale signs of a great product are there: it’s made of quality silicone that’s hypo-allergenic, hygienic, phthalate and latex free, odourless and easy to care for, is designed and angled perfectly for g-spot stimulation, has a wide flared base for strap-on play, contains detailing that amazingly targets the entire vaginal canal, and best of all securely suctions to damn near any surface.

For those of you looking for the same level of quality, but not too interested in the religious aspect, I’m going to offer up the Non-Denominational line of sex toys they make… just as great, but without all the fun of being a total blasphemous sinner.

Review: Tantus T-Rex

Let me start this review by stating that I am not, in any way, shape, or form, a “size queen’. My happy number is around 4 – 5′” inches in length (insertable) and around 4 – 5″ inches in circumference, leaning more toward 4- 4 1/2″…. anything more and it’s a damn near special occasion, with me making the accommodation simply because the product in question is worthy of the wait, effort, and persistence.

The Fun Factory Amor, measuring 5″ insertable and 4 1/2″ in girth, is my ideal (I have 2, one marbled and one in a rainbow), however the Tantus Cush is a very good example of an amazing toy for those moments when a girl is in want for a little ‘something more’ (Cush measures 6 3/4″ length insertable with a circumference of 5 1/2″). Yes that extra inch or two can make a huge difference. Literally.

With that in mind, my experiences with the T-Rex weren’t positive, instead being somewhat labor intensive and overwhelming in every way possible.

As someone who likes to ‘test’ a product up to 6 times for certainty before making a final judgement call, I was only able to go through the motions a couple times… not comfortably, and sadly not as impressively as I had originally hoped. Having said that, if you are a “size queen”… one that absolutely loves a challenge and isn’t afraid to test their skill and courage, the T-Rex will likely be for you.

*Even though it didn’t really work for me I’m going to do my best to make this review non-biased for those that are thinking of an adventure. Yes I’ll have my complaints and air them openly, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to bash the product like I did with another I thought truly deserved it. The T-Rex is meant for a specific market. I sadly am not of that market, something I fully understand and can’t hold against the T-Rex.

The Good

Being that the product is made by Tantus there are a quite a few good things it has to offer, much of which has to do with the amazing level of quality it has to bestow;

Like always the packaging is respectful, professional, and gender neutral with nothing on it that’s rude, crass or offensive. The clear plastic box is the same as pretty much every other Tantus toy, having a top that opens usually with a bit of struggle on my end via a few sliding tabs and a removable plastic insert that houses the product to keep in place for display.

The glossy and lustrous dark purple silicone is smooth, supple, and slightly squishy with a bit of give that’s also surprisingly flexible. I honestly think it was these features that allowed me to use it at all, had it been a firm product with no squish or give I likely would have given up on the first attempt due to the discomfort. Fortunately there was just enough give to help my body overcome obstacles like the upper ridge and girthy shaft.

trex2As with all Tantus products the T-Rex is hypoallergenic, hygienic, non toxic, phthalate and latex free, odourless, tasteless, eco-friendly, virtually non-porous so it won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria, and designed to last a lifetime with a minimal amount of care. I’ve said it over and over again, if you want quality, you want Tantus. Trust me on this.

The firm but squishy balls located about a third of the way down the shaft let you gauge how far it’s inserted, something that can be rather difficult to know when you can’t see due to awkward positioning, leaving one to wonder if it’s in… all the way. Usually I wouldn’t mention this since I don’t necessarily think it’s a standard selling feature, but with the T-Rex, a product many will buy just to conquer, having the balls lets you know when you’ve succeed. At least that’s how I looked at it when I won (it also gives new meaning to the term “balls deep”).

The flared base acts as a pretty decent suction cup for those that like to mount from the top and go for a ride. My only suggestion is to slightly wet the bottom with a bit of water first (to make sure there’s no pet hair or lint to get in the way) and slam it down fairly hard on the surface you want it to stick to. It’s got quite a bit of weight to it so it’s not going to instantly affix itself as easily as some others and it’s also not going to stick so well to walls (the weight will eventually cause it to fall off)… but considering I was able to lift my table off the ground when trying to remove the T-Rex, it does have some impressive suction once in place.

Also on the note of the flared base, it’s totally compatible with strap-ons for those that like pegging. Sure getting it into the harness ring may require a bit of push and pull, but it’s very flexible and should insert without too much trouble. Just know in advance that it’s not going to stand at attention when you’re wearing it – it’s heavy, very heavy, and will slightly droop.

Size wise it’s a BEAST! No seriously, it’s huge. Like really huge… really, really huge, though that has more to do with the girth than the length. For those curious, the length is a fairly doable 6″ (Cush measures 6 3/4″), but the girth is roughly 7″ around. I say roughly because it slightly thickens toward the base, on top of having a protruding ridge around the head. Sure it’s big, but that doesn’t really mean it’s bad… at least not for those that like big things. For me on the other hand, yikes!

*For those that are going to attempt the T-Rex I have a couple suggestions to help make it far more enjoyable; use lots of lube and I do mean lots (it will decrease friction and allow it to ‘slide’ comfortably), don’t just go straight for the product unless you’re used to things of its size (or close to it) instead, work your way up to it by using a partner or other products before hand (the vaginal canal will expand and lengthen when a female is aroused, take advantage of that), finally, don’t be afraid to use something on your clitoris if you need to, it’ll likely help with the arousal and getting you in the mood.

Care & Cleaning

Since it’s made of quality silicone you can wash it with anti-bacterial soap and water, boil it up to 600° Fahrenheit, bleach it with a 10% bleach solution, or simply put it in the top rack of your dishwasher…yes, I did say put it in the dishwasher.

As with all of the products Tantus makes you’ll want to use water based lubricants as a silicone lube will likely ruin it with time. If you’re dead set on using a silicone lube I’d suggest doing a patch test on the base of the dildo first. If it turns matte or ‘foggy’ don’t use it. If there’s no reaction you may be fine, I just wouldn’t chance it.

The Bad

Aside from the difficulty I personally had with the large size there are a few other issues I think are worth mentioning:

There’s a ridge that slightly protrudes around the head of the shaft, making insertion extra difficult for those that aren’t used to products of this size (pictured above left). Maybe it’s just me but I would have liked for the product to maintain the same width throughout since it would have encouraged me to keep going. Instead it acted as a barrier between me and the conquering of a beast. On that note, because of the way the ridge is angled removing it is also a challenge, leaving my second attempt a slightly more painful one due to the fact that I tensed up in anticipation of the awkward ‘pop’ I experienced the first time around, unintentionally tightening around it in the process. #ouch

Although it’s great once you can get it to stick, the base isn’t as firm as I thought it would have been, an issue that made thrusting even more difficult for me (not that it was easy to begin with). Having said that I do know that if the base was firm it would have been damn near impossible to get it to fold and easily insert into the support ring for a harness.

Finally, again with being a lint collector! That’s all I’m going to say about that.

Final Verdict

I’m admittedly a little torn on this one… on the one hand I can totally see how it’s an amazing product for those that like fisting or larger than average sized products. It’s quality made, virtually non-porous, easy to care for and clean, can be used with a harness, doesn’t leach harmful chemicals into your body or contain latex and has some seriously amazing girth to it. On the other hand, it was just to much for me. Which makes me sad… mostly because I really wanted to be able to say I ‘tamed it’, but also because had that ridge not been there I think I would have succeeded… and totally learned to love it. C’est la vie I guess.

Review: Tantus Cush O2

Tantus Cush O2 ReviewFor as much as I tend to shy away from dildos, finding myself regularly opting to purchase and review vibrators instead, they never fail to impress with the level of pleasure they end up delivering. Sure, they lack the range of uses many vibrators provide, but all in all they offer something far better in its own amazing way: a distraction free fullness that’s hard for a vibrator to mimic.

When it came to choosing my next dildo for review I couldn’t help but be slightly intrigued by the Tantus Cush O2. There was something about the supposed soft cushy outer shaft, firm internal core, dual ridges and frosted white appearance that I just couldn’t resist. Fortunately the folks at SheVibe were kind enough to offer it up for review, allowing me to bask in the glory that is the Cush O2.


The product came in a simple plastic bag which unfortunately isn’t much to write home about. However considering it was a product I was offered for review, rather than one I purchased, I’m pretty sure the one you’d get would be in the same transparent plastic box that most Tantus products come packaged in.

The Good

The good… shit, where do I begin?

First, it’s damn near everything I thought it would be and more. The outer layer is soft, squishy, supple and pliable, affording quite a bit of give and allowing the shaft to adjust to the body quite easily and comfortably. The inner core is firm but still flexible enough to make insertion a piece of cake even if the size is a bit of a challenge (lube is important with this dildo. Very important).  On that note, once inserted it’s this firmness that provides a fullness that’s pretty amazing and offers a sense of control many other dildos lack.

*For those that are curious about the O2 texture vs Vixskin, I personally found the Vixskin to be a tad more ‘realistic’ and squishy, even when appearance is taken out of the equation. Having said that, the Vixskin products I’ve felt also had a thinner outer layer which may be the cause of the difference. Either way they’re both fantastic, it’s just a matter of personal preference.

Second, whether it’s inserted and simply left to be, mounted and ground/gyrated on or used for thrusting action, the raised front ridges allow the shaft to stimulate the g-spot in an absolutely amazing way. For those that can take the entire length, the double ridging is something to behold as both will target the area with precision, hitting the g-spot in a wonderfully intense way.

*Tantus previously made another vibrator/dildo called the Deuce 1 which was not the dual-density material yet looked exactly the same as Cush (minus the outer layer of course). Unfortunately the rigid body made it a bit of a pain to use since there was no give or suppleness to it. The newer version, due to the inclusion of the O2 material, is much more comfortable, accommodating and easy to use.

Third, the base, while thin, allows it to be harness compatible, safe for use anally (if you can take the size) and great for placing on flat surfaces if you wanted to mount it. More than that, it provides a small area for the fingers to grasp while in use minimizing internal shifting/turning or loss of control.

Fourth, at 1.75″ in width and 5 1/2″ in circumference it’s rather girthy… again with that ‘full’ feeling. Yes, it’s pretty amazing.

Finally, because it’s made of quality silicone it warms to body temperature rather quickly and maintains it very well. Of course you could also cool it down if you wanted to, an option that would make temperature play a definite possibility.

As for the rest of the good stuff…

The coloring is a thick frosty white matte that’s minimally translucent and gradually fades into a gradient purple. Because there are no ridges on the back (causing the outer layer to thin out) the inner core color is more pronounced, with the same being true for the base (it’s a deep luxurious purple rather than being a hint of color seen through the white). Of course this doesn’t make much difference when it comes to use, it’s simply aesthetic.

Regarding the stats you’re looking at 7″ in length, an insertable length of 6 3/4″, a circumference of 5 1/2″ and a width of 1.75″. With that in mind, Cush O2 is rather large and not for the faint of heart or those that like things on the small to average size of things. It’s big. It’s girthy. And fortunately, both of these attributes lend themselves well to those who like a feeling of fullness or simply like to challenge themselves. (Considering I’m more of an Amor girl, this was something I had to work up to with lots of patience and a little help from my Hitachi Magic Wand). Did I mention it’s also heavy? Because it is. And while it’s not T-Rex kind of heavy (that thing’s a BEAST!), coming in at 10 oz is nothing to laugh at.

When it comes to quality, you really couldn’t ask for more. Tantus only uses Platinum Grade silicone that’s hypoallergenic, hygienic, non-toxic, phthalate and latex free, virtually non porous (so it doesn’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria) and easy to care for and clean.

Cleaning & Care

Since it’s made of quality silicone you can wash it with anti-bacterial soap and water, boil it up to 600° Fahrenheit, bleach it with a 10% bleach solution, or simply put it in the top rack of your dishwasher…yes, I did say put it in the dishwasher.

As with all of the products Tantus makes you’ll want to use water based lubricants as a silicone lube will likely ruin it with time. If you’re dead set on using a silicone lube I’d suggest doing a patch test on the base of the dildo first. If it turns matte or ‘foggy’ don’t use it. If there’s no reaction you may be fine, I just wouldn’t chance it.

Cush O2 Review

scary ridges I grew to love

The Bad

When it comes to things I didn’t like there were a few…

It attracts lint like white on rice, something that for me is a major pet peeve. To avoid this I suggest you keep it away from any surface that has pet hair, lint, fluff or anything else that could be picked up. When it comes to storing I suggest either placing it inside a bag, lint free cloth or box with a lid.

For as much as I grew to love the ridging on the shaft it did pose a bit of a problem in the beginning: the first quarter of the shaft was easy to insert, however once I hit that first raised ridge the trouble started… then pop! in it went (fortunately the second ridge wasn’t as intense). This happened the first couple times it was used, after that I knew what to expect, granting me the opportunity to relax enough to allow it to enter with ease. #MindOverMatterOrSexToy

Because the silicone used is more of a matte than a glossy texture you’ll likely need quite a bit of lube to get things going, otherwise you’ll likely find that there is a bit of drag on the skin which could be uncomfortable during insertion.

Finally, it’s on the larger side which may make it a slight challenge for some. Of course that’s going to depend on you and your body and isn’t something that will be an issue for everyone.

Final Verdict

Although the size was a bit much for me in the beginning, the Cush is definitely a dildo I’d recommend to anyone who’s not afraid of a potential challenge. Not only is it made of body safe and luxurious materials that are also supple, squishy and accommodating, the Tantus Cush O2 has all the bases covered. Sure, it has its faults too, but so do some of the most expensive and high end sex toys on the market. At least the potential issues with Cush can be easily solved with lube, great storage and a little bravery and relaxation on the users part.
