Vixen VixSkin Outlaw

Review: Vixen VixSkin Outlaw Dildo

The Vixen Outlaw is big. While not the largest or thickest dildo out there (even among Vixen’s own Vixskin line), the Outlaw is a long, girthy toy. If you consider yourself a size queen, this might be the toy for you! It is much larger and thicker than the average penis.

Material and Design

The Vixen Outlaw is constructed from Vixen Vixskin silicone, a proprietary platinum-grade silicone. This silicone is part of what makes Vixen’s dual-density line so squishy and comfortable.

Vixen VixSkin Outlaw

The Vixen Outlaw has a lot of realistic texture, particularly around the head. While the shape of the balls are realistic, there is also texture around the flat balls at the base. The texture is realistic, but it is not hard or likely to be uncomfortable, even if you don’t care for textured dildos.

The surface of the silicone is slightly sticky, and it easily attracts lint and hair. In fact, Vixen Vixskin silicone is an exception to the rule that silicone can be stored with other silicone. Vixen actually recommends storing its Vixskin dildos separately from others. The Vixen Outlaw may attract lint and hair easily, but it is also easy to clean with soap and water.

The Vixen Outlaw is BIG

The Vixen Outlaw is a long, girthy dildo with flattened balls at the base. It is anal safe due to the balls at the base.

I cannot emphasize the size enough, because it is girthy and long.

The average penis is 5.88” in length and 4.97” in girth according to a 2001 Lifestyles study (where penises were not self-measured). The Vixen Vixskin is 8.75” in insertable length (9.25” in total length) and 2” in diameter – 6.5” in girth at the head, and 6” throughout the length of the shaft. Using the data from the Lifestyles study, the Vixen Outlaw would be at about the 99th percentile for girth and above the 99th percentile for length.

While the dual-density is squishy and comparable to an actual penis, it is still more difficult to take than a penis of comparable of girth, in my opinion. You should take this into consideration when purchasing not just the Vixen Vixskin dildos, but virtually any dual-density toy. While the dual-density is squishier, has “give”, and is not as firm as an ordinary dildo, it is still less squishy than an erect penis.

Does the Vixen Outlaw Work as Vixen Claims?

Vixen claims that the Outlaw “looks and feels like authentic skin”. I would agree that it is very close to feeling like skin, as it is soft and squishy.

Vixen also notes that it “warms and retains body heat”, has a “non-slip base for use with harness”, and a “solid inner core for functional use”. Vixen does warm and retain body heat during use, and its solid inner core makes it stay “erect” and allows it to be thrust and stay stiff. While I have not used it with a harness, the base is non-slip.

Vixen also has a warranty, which is somewhat unique for dildos, further reinforcing its claim that it “does not break down or degrade.”

In general, it does exactly what Vixen says.

Should you buy this?

Are you a size queen? Are you interested in trying a large, realistic dildo? You might want this. The material is squishy and absolutely amazing to feel.

While Vixen Vixskin toys are expensive, they are dual-density and made from a high-quality silicone. If the Outlaw sounds too long or girthy for you – or if you need G-spot stimulation –  there are other Vixen Vixskin toys that you might enjoy.

If you want G-spot stimulation, you might look towards another toy. Among Vixen’s Vixskin line, there are several toys that might meet your needs. The Slim is 8” long and 1.5” in diameter and has a marked curve for G-spot stimulation. The Ranger is 6.5” long and 1.9” in diameter and also has a moderately strong curve for G-spot stimulation.

If you don’t need this much length, but want something similarly girthy, you could try the Johnny (7” in length, 1.9” in diameter), Lonestar (6.75” in length, 1.9” in diameter), or Buck (6” in length, 1.9” in diameter).

If you don’t need this much girth, you could try the Bandit (7.75” length, 1.67” in diameter).

If you want something girthier, Vixen Randy is girthier at 2.22” in diameter, but it has less length – 6.5”.

If you want something girthier and longer, Vixen Gambler is absolutely giant at 10.5” in length and 2.875” in diameter (8” in girth).

Tantus Magma

Review: Tantus Magma

When I first saw the Magma, I was intrigued but afraid. The Magma was – and is – a stunning toy, but it looked so glossy and firm. I imagined that the Magma would be hard and painful with its shiny drips.

Tantus Magma

Fortunately, my fears had no basis in reality. The Tantus Magma is softer than the average Tantus dildo – according to Felicity of Phallophile Reviews, it is 10A shore. It is more flexible than the average dildo listed as “flexible” by Tantus, and the matte silicone is somewhat squishy.

Design and Material

The Tantus Magma is constructed from body-safe silicone – it is available in two colors – a bright red and a black, but I purchased the Magma in black. The drips, which provide texture, are a glossy silicone. Underneath the drips is a softer matte silicone. Due to the soft matte silicone and the textured drips, I recommend a water-based lube. In addition, you should take care to clean the matte silicone and to clean around the drips. I would recommend using a soft toothbrush (or other soft brush) to clean the Magma.

Tantus Magma Drips

The design of the Magma is characterized by these drips, which are heavily textured. The Magma is angled, which is ideal for G-Spot (or prostate) stimulation. The Magma has a flared base that makes it anal-safe and harness-safe.

The heavy texture combined with the shape of the Magma was amazing. The head is bulbous but non-realistic, providing excellent G-spot stimulation.

Measurements

The Magma is 6.4” in length and 5.5” in girth at the fullest point at the head (4.5” in girth near the base).

Does It Do What It Says?

Tantus says about the Magma:

“Magma is a fantasy dildo of molten silicone textured with drips. Perfect for G-Spot and P-Spot stimulation. Put in hot water for temperature play.”

I agree with the claims made by Tantus. The textured drips add to the G-spot stimulation that the bulbous head and the curved shape provide. When placed in warm water, the Magma holds heat well.

Should You Buy the Tantus Magma?

I think that the Tantus Magma is an excellent dildo. The design is beautiful and unique, and the drips and large head provide excellent G-spot stimulation.

I would recommend the Magma if you like:

  • Texture. The Magma’s drip texture is impossible to ignore, for better or for worse. I personally enjoy the texture, and it is great if you are a fan of texture.
  • Pronounced heads. The Magma has a large pronounced head. This is great for G-spot stimulation.
  • Fantasy dildos. While the Magma isn’t, the molten drips do provide an element of fantasy. In general, the design is not realistic, which is excellent if you are not a fan of realistiic dildos.
  • Affordable, high-quality dildos. The Magma is an excellent value at regular price, but is especially good at SheVibe (or during a Tantus sale).

LELO SIRI 2

Review: LELO SIRI 2 Vibrator

The LELO SIRI 2 is an excellent vibrator with strong, rumbly vibrations. The controls are excellent and the shape is good for both broad and pinpoint clitoral stimulation.

LELO SIRI 2

Design and Material

The LELO SIRI 2 is constructed from body-safe materials – ABS plastic and silicone. The controls are contained within the ABS plastic side of the SIRI 2, while the half used for stimulation is covered in silicone. The LELO SIRI 2 is curved and fits well in my hand and on my body.

The LELO SIRI 2 charges using a pin-to-USB charging cord (included) which can be used with any USB outlet.

The LELO SIRI 2 is waterproof. The LELO SIRI 2 is fairly easy to clean, but the area where the silicone and the ABS plastic meets can collect dust, dirt, or fluids. The buttons can also get grimy over time. I have owned a few different LELO SIRI and SIRI 2 vibrators over the past decade, and that is what I experienced over time. For this reason, I highly recommend 1) cleaning the SIRI after use and 2) storing the LELO SIRI 2 in a small bag (like the included storage pouch) or container to keep it in good shape.

LELO includes a 1-year warranty and a 10-year guarantee (a 50% off discount within 10 years).

Ease of Use

When holding the SIRI 2, the plastic end can provide targeted clitoral stimulation. The contour of the SIRI 2 allows me to comfortably place it over my labia and clitoris for broader stimulation, which works well when I’m warming up – or between orgasms. The controls are separate for speed and patterns, and there is an individual button for increasing and decreasing the power. This is especially beneficial if you want to have multiple orgasms.

While the LELO SIRI 2 is intended for clitoral stimulation, it could also be used for other external stimulation – e.g. to stimulate nipples.

Along with the We-Vibe Touch, the SIRI 2 is my go-vibrator for an orgasm. If I am short on time, I can almost guarantee an orgasm within a few minutes of use.

Controls

There are two buttons for increasing and decreasing speed and two buttons for changing patterns. Holding down the speed controls also turns on the travel lock.

Does It Do What LELO Claims?

LELO claims that it has “LELO’s strongest vibrations ever for a handheld clitoral vibrator”. Having tried several handheld LELO vibrators, I prefer the SIRI 2 above all other LELO vibrators. I believe that claims made by LELO regarding the strength are accurate.

LELO touts the SIRI 2 music features, but I did not find these to be useful or pleasurable.

Should You Buy This?

I love the LELO SIRI 2. The shape, the controls, the rumbly vibration, and the travel lock all make it worthwhile for me. The SIRI 2 has eight vibration levels, and all are rumbly and satisfying. The LELO SIRI 2 is one of the best vibrators I have ever tried. If you are looking for a clitoral vibrator, you should consider the SIRI 2.

The LELO SIRI 2 is more expensive than the We-Vibe Touch X, which has a similar form factor. I personally prefer the SIRI 2 to the We-Vibe Touch X because of the shape, but both are excellent vibrators.

Doc Johnson Mood Naughty and CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit - Standing Up

Comparison: Doc Johnson Mood Naughty vs. CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 trainer set, and the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit are my two most favorite butt plug sets. They are both spaced appropriately with 0.25” diameter increases between plugs. Both sets are made of high-quality, easy to clean silicone and are sold at a great price. Without reading this, I could recommend either set to anyone reading this. However, if you read below, you will see the similarities and differences that might make one plug the best choice for you.

Size

Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 Trainer Set vs. CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

The CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit contains plugs that are 1”, 1.25”, and 1.5” in diameter. The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Trainer Set contains plugs that are 0.75”, 1”, and 1.25” in diameter. While you can buy an additional larger plug, the Mood Naughty set may be more limiting if you already have any experience with anal play.

Length

The Doc Johnson plugs are longer at each comparable girth – the plugs are 3”, 4”, and 5” in length, while the CalExotics plugs are 3”, 3.5”, and 4.25” in length.

Neck Girth

The Doc Johnson plugs have less girthy necks – the largest Doc Johnson plug has a neck girth of 1.7”, which is the same neck girth as the smallest CalExotics plug.

Base Length

The CalExotics plugs have a shorter base, which means that vaginal sex while wearing one of these plugs is possible for more people. The Doc Johnson plugs have longer, thinner bases – and these bases are curved and may stretch out when flattened.

The longest CalExotics base is 2.4”, but one side or tip of that plug is 0.9”, which means that vaginal sex is more likely. The shortest Doc Johnson base is 2.2” (2.45” stretched), with one side or tip being 0.75” (0.9-0.95” stretched), while the longest is 3” (3.4” stretched), with the tip being 1.3” (1.4-1.5” stretched).

Material

Both are firm silicone, but the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs feel slightly less firm. Realistically, if you want a softer silicone, neither of these will fit your needs. They are both similarly firm, but high-quality silicone.

The CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit plugs have a smooth satin finish that has been less likely to attract dust and dirt than the matte finish of the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs.

However, on the largest CalExotics plug, the seam is more raised than on the Doc Johnson plugs. Personally, I did not find this noticeable during use, but you might.

Winner: Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 Trainer Set

Ease of Cleaning

Both plugs are easy to clean. While the seams on the CalExotics anal exerciser kit plugs are more noticeable, they do not pose any difficulties during cleaning. In fact, the only crevice that seems to hold dirt or grime is the Doc Johnson logo engraved into the base of the Doc Johnson plugs.

Winner: CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

Overall Design

I personally prefer the CalExotics plugs here, as I like the solid, short base. This allows the plugs to be used during vaginal sex as well. The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs are longer and may occlude the vagina or rub uncomfortably against the penetrating partner.

Both bases are sufficiently long, but the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs are more flexible – for better or worse. Some people may like this because they may fit comfortably. Personally, the thinness of the material meant that they uncomfortably pressed into my butt cheeks.

Another concern is one that I have seen among beginners on Reddit – the flexibility seems to lead some to a feeling of unease. While the base is long enough that this should not be a concern, some users have worried about the flexible base being sucked in. Given that anal stretching and butt plug kits are often used by those with less experience, this leads me to prefer the CalExotics plugs.

Winner: CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

Below, I compare the design of the two sets in more detail.

Neck Girth for Anal Stretching

The CalExotics plugs are slightly girthier, even when comparing comparable plugs. This is good for anal stretching, but it is less desirable if you want to wear a plug for an extended period of time.

Winner: CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

Neck Girth for Extended Wear Comfort

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty set has a narrow neck compared to the CalExotics set (and to many other plugs). This is great for beginners, and it is also good for more comfortable extended wearing.

Winner: Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 Trainer Set

Ease of Removal

CalExotics has a firm and inflexible base, for better or worse. When it comes to ease of removal, the CalExotics anal exerciser kit plugs are easier to remove for two reasons. One, the base of the plug is more substantial and heavier than the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty base. Two, the neck is thicker, and as Squirrelmunk can attest, a thick neck is slightly easier to remove.

Winner: CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

Best for Use During Vaginal Sex

T-bar bases are generally not ideal for use during vaginal sex, but I have personally found that some plugs have bases that are sufficiently long (and thus safe) but also not too long. Anogenital distance – in this case, the distance between the anus and vagina – varies from person to person, so it is impossible to give a blanket recommendation. This is why I provide measurements. Either way, the CalExotics Anal Exerciser kit plugs have bases that are shorter than the Doc Johnson plugs, which means that more people can enjoy these plugs during sex.

The median anogenital distance is approximately 1.5 inches, and in one Spanish study, the range was between 1.09 and 1.9 inches. Using these measurements, most of these plugs should be fine, however it is important to realize that the touching may make vaginal penetration uncomfortable for the person with the penis even if the bases are shorter than this distance.

Winner: CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

Which Should You Buy?

If you want a set of butt plugs that you can use during sex, I would recommend the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit. The shorter base ensures that most people can use them during sex, but this isn’t necessarily the case for the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs.

If you want a narrower neck for more comfortable wear, I would recommend the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty set.

If you want a girthier neck for more anal stretching, I would recommend the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit.

If you have some anal play experience, I would recommend the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit since the girth is larger.

Either way, if you want a high-quality silicone anal trainer or stretching set, I think you will be happy with either set.

I also recommend reading my review of the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit and the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 Trainer Set for more details.

Tantus Goddess

Review: Tantus Goddess

I absolutely love the Tantus Tsunami, but it takes some warm-up for me to use it. I wanted to try another textured Tantus toy, but with less of a curve. The Tantus Goddess looked similar, down to the purple haze color, so I decided to try it. It also has less girth and less length, so this made it seem like an easier toy to use.

Design and Material

The Tantus Goddess is packaged in standard Tantus packaging – a clear plastic container surrounds the Goddess inside of a cardboard box. I ordered the Goddess from Tantus, and the external packaging was discreet, as always.

The Tantus Goddess is 6.25” long with 4.9” of insertable length. The diameter is 1.55”, and it has a girth of 4.25”. It is slightly curved, but not dramatically so. There is texture running along the length of the shaft of the Goddess. In addition to the texture, there are ridges for G-spot stimulation. The material is glossy and a standard slightly firm Tantus silicone – what Tantus calls “flexible” – it is slightly flexible and can be bent, but it firmer than many other brands.

Tantus Goddess

There is a bullet cavity at the base of the Goddess for use with the included bullet vibrator (or another bullet or small vibrator). The Tantus Goddess is suction compatible, harness-compatible, and anal-safe.

Ease of Use

The length and girth are both on the lower end of average, which allows it to be inserted easily.

Unfortunately for me, the texture or the ridges seem to result in an uncomfortable dragging sensation. Even after trying multiple lubes, the dragging sensation persisted – the texture would painfully catch onto my skin. It might just be incompatible with my anatomy, as others have reviewed it and found it to be suitable. I would chalk it up as a weird personal quirk, but I had noticed a review noting a similar issue on the Tantus website.

I really wanted to like the Goddess, as it seemed like it could be a less-intense companion to the Tsunami. I highly recommend the Tsunami if you want G-spot stimulation, but I am unsure why the Goddess seems to drag so much for me.

Despite my issues with using the Goddess, it is easy to clean.

Does It Do What It Claims To?

“Beautiful subtle curves, soft sleek silicone, and a removable bullet vibrator makes the Tantus Goddess a perfect toy for solo use or couples play.”

I agree with Tantus about the subtle curvature. The silicone is sleek, but like most Tantus products, I wouldn’t call it “soft.”

Should you buy this?

I would recommend this if you want a slightly below average length and girth dildo, particularly if you like texture – I just hope that you do not experience the same issues with the texture.

BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy

Review: BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy G-Spot Vibrator

The BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy is a G-spot vibrator that has a beautiful and functional design. The packaging is simple and minimalistic – there is not a lot of bulky plastic packaging here. The BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy also comes with a silky satin storage bag which fits the Sassy, but can also fit another toy or two inside.

Design and Material

Measurements

I measured the BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy, as I believe that measurements are important, and manufacturer measurements are often slightly inaccurate – and some measurements simply aren’t provided.

The Sassy is 7.5” in total length, but it is 5” in insertable length. At its widest point, at its neck, it is 1.4” in width – which amounts to 4.75” in girth. Further down the Sassy, past its neck, the shaft of the Sassy is 3.25” in girth.

Material

The BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy is a G-spot vibrator that is firm, yet flexible enough to adapt to many different bodies. It is constructed from a smooth silicone – in either pink or teal. I purchased the Pillow Talk Sassy in teal. The Sassy has a large head that is ideal for G-spot stimulation.

BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy

There are two grooves running down the head, neck, and shaft of the Sassy. The Sassy is water-resistant, but not completely submersible.

Using the Pillow Talk Sassy

The head of the Sassy is firm, but the neck has enough flexibility to adapt to variations in anatomy.

The Sassy’s controls consist of a single button – this button powers the Sassy on, adjusts the strength of vibration, and powers the Sassy off. One quick tap powers the Sassy on, while long-pressing down on the control button increases the vibration. Another tap on the control button powers the Sassy off. These controls are not ideal, but they work fairly well. Fortunately, the Sassy includes a travel lock, which is a great addition. To lock the Sassy, simply press three times – if successful, you can feel two vibrations while a ring around the base flashes.

The Pillow Talk Sassy is meant for G-spot stimulation, but it can also be used externally for clitoral stimulation. The vibrations are very rumbly no matter how you use it. It can be used externally, somewhat similar to a wand, but the flexibility of the neck means that it would never be my first choice for clitoral stimulation.

The Sassy includes a 90-day limited manufacturer’s warranty.

Charging

The Sassy charges using an included USB pin charging cable which is inserted into a small recessed charging port towards the base of the Sassy. While charging, a light at the base blink slowly – when charged the light stops blinking. The Sassy has a runtime of 96 minutes, and a charge time of 96 minutes.

Ease of Cleaning

The Sassy has two grooves, a metal band, and a patterned texture at the base. Despite this, it is fairly easy to clean, and it comes with a small cleaning brush to target these small areas. I have found that the metal band and textured pattern have mostly been left untouched during play

Does the Pillow Talk Sassy Work as Expected?

BMS Factory says:

“The soft, flexible body helps you discover your every desire, while the large tip is curved for optimal G-spot pleasure.

For added stimulation, there is a delicate contour with an elegant curve running along each side. The beautiful handle has a padded cushion texture and a dazzling crystal button for a luxurious look.”

I agree that the flexibility of the Sassy is a good feature, and the large head of the Sassy makes it ideal for G-spot stimulation. Personally, I’m not sure how much the curves or grooves add to my pleasure, but it might be different for you.

Should You Buy the Pillow Talk Sassy?

The BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy is a good choice for a powerful G-spot vibrator. G-spot vibrators can be difficult because they may or may not work well with different anatomy, but the Sassy has enough flexibility that it can bend and adapt to different bodies.
