[Toy Review] Lezovibes 6-in-1 Thrusting Heating Telescopic & Squirming Dildo

Happy new year, my friends! I hope you’ve had a relaxing holiday season and new year, no matter what you celebrate or don’t. I’m back at work now, which means it’s time to start ploughing through my review queue.

First up, the Lezovibes 6-in-1 Thrusting Heating Telescopic & Squirming Dildo, which was kindly sent to me recently. Considering the absolute mouthful of its full name, I’m gonna just call it the Lezovibes Thrusting Dildo from here on out. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Lezovibes 6-in-1 Thrusting Dildo

This realistic dildo measures 8.6″ in total length (6.3″ insertable) and offers a thrusting extension of an additional 1.5″. It measures 1.59″ in diameter at the widest point.

The “6-in-1” refers to its 6 key features: thrusting, heating, vibrating, swinging, rotating, and remote-controllability. There’s also a suction cup and large “balls” base, making it harness-compatible if you like.

The Lezovibes Thrusting Dildo is made of body-safe and non-porous silicone and passes a flame-test. The silicone is extremely matte, so don’t forget to add plenty of water-based lube particularly if you’re using the thrusting function.

This toy is IPX6 waterproof. This means it can withstand jets of water but is not submersible. In other words, clean it under the tap but don’t take it in the bath with you. The remote control is not waterproof.

The Lezovibes Thrusting Dildo is rechargeable via the included USB cable, and a full charge took around 2 hours and gives up to 60 minutes of runtime depending on the settings you’re using.

Things I Like About This Toy

Let’s start with the good. Retailing at a middle-of-the-road $69.99, the Lezovibes Thrusting Dildo does have several positive points to recommend it.

Lezovibes thrusting dildo in my hand

  • It does a lot of different things! If you’re newer to toys or just want to get something quite versatile, then a toy with lots of different features is a great choice for you. As mentioned, this thrusting dildo also vibrates, rotates, swings, and heats up. Pretty impressive array of options, there!
  • The outer layer of silicone is squishy and pliable, and the toy has a firm core. This gives a kind of “dual density” effect that more realistically mimics a bio-cock.
  • Speaking of realism, the lifelike aesthetic is great if you like that sort of thing, from the veined shaft to the textured balls and foreskin. To be entirely honest I don’t particularly like that kind of thing, personally. Hyper-realism isn’t really my vibe. However, it appeals to a lot of people and I’m continually getting asked for recommendations for realistic toys.
  • The thrusting function feels great in use. (The swinging function is really just a slight variation on the thrusting and I couldn’t feel much difference between them.)
  • The suction cup is strong and holds the toy firm on a surface, even when the various functions are switched on.
  • The heating function! A sex toy that warms up in use is one of those things you never knew you needed until you try it. I started feeling the warmth around 30 seconds after I switched the heating function on. It heats to 42°C.
  • It has ten different vibrating modes, and the motor is positioned so that the vibrations are concentrated in the head of the toy. For most users, that’s gonna be where you want them.
  • As it has a large base (thanks to the balls and suction cup), this toy is both vaginal-safe and anal-safe.
  • The rigidity makes it great for strap-on sex.

Anything I Didn’t Like?

There were also a few issues that let this toy down. They include:

  • The controls are needlessly complicated and confusing. I actually had to email the company because I COULD NOT get mine to work at all and I was convinced I had a dud one for a while. It did eventually start working, but the controls are still far more confusing than they need to be.
  • The button in the base is really, really hard to push in a way that’s extremely annoying. I literally have to use the thumbs of both hands, one on top of the other, to get it going or switch it off.
  • Like all thrusting toys, it makes a high-pitched mechanical whining noise in use. I can’t hold this against Lezovibes in particular, though – even at the premium end of the market, the technology just isn’t there yet to make silent thrusting toys.
  • The vibrations are weak and buzzy.
  • I can’t feel the rotating function at all so I’m not really sure what the point of this is.
  • The remote control’s responsiveness is variable. It responds about 75% of the time in my experience, but that’s a high enough failure rate to be intensely annoying.
  • It’s a little too straight for me. I would have preferred it to have a little more curve and flex.

Verdict

With the acknowledgement that realistic dildos aren’t really my thing (but may well be yours,) I still found quite a few things to like in the Lezovibes Thrusting Dildo. Overall, it’s a mixed bag. Though the many different functions are a good way to explore new sensations, I think this toy is trying to do too many things. It’s better to do fewer things and do them really well than to try to cram every feature under the sun into a single toy.

More than anything, though, please sort out those controls. It’s so needlessly complicated to use and that means people will just end up not using a bunch of the functionalities that make up its main selling points.

[Toy Review] Valm 8″ Silicone Triple Density Dildo

Valm is a US-based company, founded by long-time adult industry professionals, that has been designing and manufacturing body-safe sex toys since 2015. The company’s product line is currently small, focusing on dual density and triple density sex toys made of body-safe platinum cure silicone. I received the 8″ triple density dildo to try out.

Valm Toys: A Range of Options

Valm produces realistic silicone dildos in a range of sizes and colours, as well as two different density options. You can choose 6″, 8″, 10″, or 12″ for your toy’s length, with corresponding girth sizes of 1.49″, 1.65″, 2″, or 2.4″ in diameter respectively. I received the 8″ version at my request.

The Valm Triple Density Dildo, a bright orange and pink silicone realistic dildo

The standard colour options are tan, brown, or black. However, you can also order a custom toy in a two-colour fade, with a range of colours to choose from. I picked the bright orange to pink fade for mine, partly because it’s an unusual look for a sex toy and partly because it reminds me of a particularly vibrant sunset. (The colours are so bright. I have never seen a sex toy quite this orange. Seriously, it practically glows in the dark!)

Look and Feel

My Valm Triple Density Dildo has an impressively lifelike aesthetic including a veined shaft, pronounced head, wrinkled skin-like texturing around the base of the head to represent the foreskin, and textured balls. If you want a dildo that really looks like an actual penis, you could do much worse than a Valm toy in one of the available skin colour shades.

The Valm Triple Density Dildo’s outer layer silicone is very matte, which can make it feel quite grabby against the skin. This means that sufficient lubrication is particularly important. It also means it hangs on to lint and dust, so you’ll want to give it a quick wipe down before use if it’s been sitting in storage for a while.

What Does “Triple Density” Mean Anyway?

In a nutshell, a triple density dildo is made up of three layers of silicone. Valm says that their triple density toys feature “a hard inner core, gel-like middle layer, and soft outer layer.”

The main draw of a dual density or triple density dildo is that it feels more like a real penis. The Valm Triple Density Dildo has a firm core, slightly squishy middle layer, and a soft outer “skin” – just like an erect cock. Valm uses a silicone gel for the middle layer.

What’s the Difference Between a Triple Density and Dual Density Dildo?

The Valm Triple Density Dildo, a bright orange and pink silicone realistic dildo

Dual density sex toys have been on the market for some time, but triple density toys such as this one are much less common. If you’re new to this type of toy, you might be wondering which to go for.

Both dual density and triple density toys feel great, and offer a more lifelike experience compared to an ordinary single density silicone dildo. Here are a few things you’ll want to consider in making your choice:

  • A triple density dildo will cost more than a dual density one, simply because it uses more materials and requires more complex construction. For reference, the Valm 8″ retails for $109 in dual density and $129 in triple density.
  • All things being equal, triple density will provide a slightly more “realistic” feel. That is, if you want a toy that feels as much like a human penis as possible, choose triple density. If you’re happy to compromise somewhat on realism for the sake of cost, go for dual.
  • A triple density toy’s “layers” will be easier to move, whereas they’re likely to be less malleable and require more force to move in a dual density toy.

Both dual density and triple density dildos are easy to clean (toss it in the dishwasher or a pan of boiling water,) compatible with water-based and oil-based lubes, and body-safe.

Valm Silicone Triple Density Dildo In Use

The Valm Triple Density Dildo is more flexible than I expected, and definitely more flexible than your average erect human cock! I love this about it, though. Its shaft is basically straight, but the flexibility allows me to get the curve I need to target my G-spot effectively.

I also really love the squish and softness of this toy. When it’s properly lubricated, the skin-like texture of the outer silicone makes it a joy to use. I was a little surprised by how squishy the head is. This was a plus point for me in this case, but if you prefer very firm toys it might not provide enough pressure for you.

I’m not a big fan of a lot of texture on insertable toys, as I tend to find it painful or uncomfortable rather than pleasurable. The Valm dildo’s texturing on the shaft is subtle enough that I really can’t feel it, though, and the pronounced head is ideal for G-spotting without being so pronounced as to make insertion painful.

Other Uses and Considerations

Being a large hunk of triple density silicone, the Valm realistic dildo isn’t the lightest thing in the world. I don’t have an issue with heavy toys, but it’s something to be aware of if they are tricky for you. It’s easy to hold, with the suction cup and balls providing a convenient handle for thrusting even for my small hands.

Valm dildos are harness-compatible thanks to the balls and suction cup. However, I find mine is slightly too flexible to be ideal for strap-on sex. It’s certainly useable, but I tend to prefer slightly firmer dildos for this purpose as they make it easier to consistently get the right angle (and to avoid unintentionally slipping out of my partner.)

The suction cup is strong and firm, allowing you to attach the dildo to a surface for hands-free fucking, if you like. It doesn’t detach until you want it to. And, since the balls and suction cup form a kind of base, it’s anal safe if that’s your thing.

Verdict

This is my first triple density dildo, and I’m a big fan. Valm’s design is realistic in both look and feel, and – for me at least – offers the ideal blend of firmness, flex, and squish.

A winner.

[Toy Review] Whipple Tickle Alien Dildo with Suction Cup Type II

I’m going to be frank and say that I don’t really “get” fantasy sex toys – things that look like monsters, aliens, tentacles, and so on. No judgement if you’re into such things, obviously. Your kink is okay! But, cards on the table, they’re not my kink.

Even so, I get asked about fantasy toys more than just about any other category. And I’ve always been a bit stumped for what to recommend because they’re just not things I buy or use. Even so, I like to think that I’m educated and experieced enough in this industry, after close to seven years, to give an objective assessment of a toy’s quality even if it’s not really “my thing.” So with that in mind, I thought it was time I reviewed a few fantasy sex toys for you all.

Whipple Tickle Alien Dildo Type II

Whipple Tickle kindly sent me their Alien Dildo Type II with Suction Cup. This medium-large toy measures 8.3″ in total length, of which around 6″ are insertable (perhaps a little more if you’re feeling ambitious) and 1.7″ in diameter at the widest point of the shaft. It features a suction cup base which you can stick to any firm, flat surface.

Whipple Tickle Alien Dildo Type II

The Alien Dildo Type II is made of matte silicone, which is body-safe and non-porous. It’s very grabby in texture, so plenty of water-based lube will be essential. It also features a number of ridges and grooves in the silicone, so take extra care when you clean it after use if you haven’t used a condom. It’s easy for bacteria to get trapped in those spaces and cause infection if you’re not thorough.

The Alien Dildo Type II’s main colour is blue, with flecks of gold and pink. It’s genuinely a very aesthetically pleasing toy. Even if you’re not into the fantasy alien look, the swirled together colours and slight shimmery effect are beautiful. Its elaborate design is fun and unusual. I particularly like the ornate swirls around the outside of the suction cup base.

In Use

The Alien Dildo Type II starts narrow at the top and then widens towards the base with a series of bulges along the shaft. The silicone doesn’t have much “squish”, but the shaft as a whole is fairly flexible. This allows for easy and comfortable insertion, as well as more precise positioning.

This toy’s shape isn’t a brilliant fit for my body. I much prefer curved toys, and the Alien Dildo Type II is pretty much straight (<insert “unlike me, lol” joke here!>) I’m also not super into a lot of texture, which I tend to find uncomfortable at best and painful at worst. Simple, smooth and gently curved dildos are my go-tos. I can sort of get the Alien Dildo Type II to hit my G-spot if I angle it carefully enough, but overall the shape isn’t quite right for me.

Whipple Tickle Alien Dildo Type II

However, bodies and preferences are different! If you enjoy straighter toys or those with more texture, you’ll probably like this one. It’s all a matter of individual tastes.

The Alien Dildo Type II’s suction cup is ultra strong and secure. (Seriously, you should have seen me trying to peel the damn thing off the side of my shower during testing!) So if you enjoy using dildos hands-free, that’s a big advantage. The suction cup also makes it harness-compatible for strap-on play, as well as anal-safe.

Verdict

I’m sticking with my basic assessment from the beginning of this post: alien dildos aren’t really my thing. It’s just not a kink I have. Even so, it is a very common kink and if it’s your thing, I’m happy to recommend this toy. In addition, the shape of this toy doesn’t really work for me but that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t work brilliantly for you.

The Alien Dildo Type II is body-safe, well-designed, visually pleasing, and – here’s the real kicker for me – retails for an astonishingly affordable £29.99.

[Toy Review] BMS Addiction Edward Realistic Dildo

Today’s review is the third and final in my series featuring the new Addiction range from BMS (check out Luke and Steven if you haven’t already!) The final toy in the series is the Edward realistic dildo.

Let’s take a closer look.

Edward Design & Materials

The Edward is a realistic dildo in a pale white flesh tone. It is gently curved and features lifelike detailing on the shaft and a pronounced, realistic-looking head.

Edward realistic dildo

The Edward is made of 100% silicone, which is non-porous and body-safe (it’s also easy to sterilise – just pop the toy in a pan of boiling water for 10 minutes, and any germs or bacteria will be killed). The material is very soft and squishy, making it a great entry point for people new to insertable toys… or just a good choice if you know you don’t like things too rigid.

The Edward measures 6″ in total length (5.5″ insertable) and 1.5″ in diameter at the widest point. It features a suction cup base, which makes it ideal for both hands-free solo play and strap-on sex. This is probably the most ideal toy from the Addiction range for strap-on play, as it doesn’t have balls (which can make it trickier to keep a toy in place in a harness). Thanks to the flared base, you can also safely use the Edward for anal play.

Like the other Addiction toys I’ve tried, the Edward comes with a mini single-speed vibrating bullet. It requires 3 x LR44 watch batteries, which are included.

Edward Realistic Dildo In Use

The Edward is by far my favourite of the realistic dildos I’ve tried from the BMS Addiction range.

Lifelike suction cup dildo affixed to shower wall

When it comes to inserting the toy, the matte silicone can be quite grabby against your skin. Using plenty of water-based lube is the best way to ensure maximum comfort and pleasure. Shape and design wise, I found the Edward easy to insert and manipulate. The suction cup makes a convenient “handle”.

The best thing about the Edward compared to the other Addiction toys I’ve reviewed is its curved shape. If you’re looking for precision G-spot or prostate (P-spot) action, a curved dildo is the way to go. The Edward’s curve works brilliantly for my body. Combined with the pronounced head, it makes targeted G-spotting easy.

This dildo is more “average” in size than the larger Steven and Luke, but that can be a good thing. I don’t particularly gravitate towards size when it comes to dildos – shape (the aforementioned curve) is far more important. Considering that the average erect penis is supposedly about 5.1″ inches in length (source), the Edward is likely to feel closer to being penetrated by a human lover.

Edward and Steven side by side for comparison

If I have one complaint, it’s that I would have preferred the Edward to be a little bit firmer. Some flex in a toy can be nice, but this is maybe a little too flexy to be completely ideal. Of course, your mileage may vary and if you don’t like too much firmness or pressure, the Edward might be your dream dildo.

About That Bullet Vibe…

If you’ve read my previous Addiction reviews, you’ll know what I think of the included vibrating bullet. Tl;dr version: it’s a weak, buzzy waste of time. If manufacturers are going to include bonus vibrators with their dildos, I wish they’d do it properly. Otherwise, I wish they just wouldn’t bother. Leaving them out would reduce the overall price of the product a little, and there are far better bullet vibes on the market.

Black mini bullet vibrator for clitoral pleasure

I also worry about including a mini bullet in with a toy that is clearly aimed primarily at the beginner market. Why? Because when I was new to sex toys, I tried this type of weak vibrator. When I couldn’t get off with it, when it numbed my clit and left me confused and frustrated, I thought there was something wrong with me.

Sex toy beginners, please hear this: there’s nothing wrong with you if you can’t get off with a weak and buzzy vibe, or indeed any toy. You just need to find what works for your body.

Verdict

Overall, the Edward is a nice realistic dildo that does its job well. It’s well designed, safe, and suitable for a range of different purposes including hands-free penetration, strap-on sex, and anal play.

Best of all, the Edward retails for a very affordable £22.83. I’m so pleased to see more and more affordable body-safe toys hitting the market all the time. Being on a budget doesn’t need to mean settling for crap quality or unsafe materials!

[Toy Review] BMS Addiction Luke Semi-Realistic Dildo

Last week, I reviewed the Steven from the new Addiction range by BMS. This line of silicone dildos are designed to be both body-safe and affordable. Today we’re looking at another toy from the range: the Luke semi-realistic dildo.

Materials and Design: A Closer Luke

(Sorry. You knew there’d be puns).

The Luke from BMS’s Addiction range is a silicone semi-realistic dildo. I say semi-realistic because the Luke is realistic in shape, complete with a lifelike veined shaft, detailed head, and textured balls, but definitely not realistic in colour, with its gorgeous and unusual blue and white marbling effect. Prefer pink? The Brandon is the same design in equally cute pink and white.

BMS Luke blue silicone dildo

As someone who generally prefers playful and unusual colourways rather than flesh tones for my toys, I gravitated to the Luke’s striking aesthetic straight away.

The Luke measures 7.5″ in length (5″ insertable) and 1.5″ in diameter. Being silicone, it’s completely body-safe and simple to keep clean. Be aware that this silicone is very matte, meaning it can feel a little “grabby”. Plenty of water-based lube will give you a smoother and more enjoyable experience.

Matte silicone is also a nightmare for attracting dust and lint, so always give it a quick wipe down before use, even if it’s been sterilised. You don’t want to introduce unnecessary gunk into your sensitive areas!

BMS Addiction semi-realistic dildo with suction cup

The Luke features a strong suction cup for hands-free use, is harness-compatible if strap-on play is your jam, and comes with a mini vibrating bullet (batteries included). Thanks to its large base, the Luke is also safe for anal play.

Luke In Use

Putting them side by side, we can see that the Luke is the more colourful twin of the Steven. They’re physically the same in shape, size, and texture. This means that, for the same reasons, the Luke wasn’t a good match for my preferences.

BMS Luke and Steven realistic dildos

It’s comfortable to insert and easy to angle, which are definitely points in its favour. But I have a very strong preference for insertable toys with a pronounced curve. They just target my G-spot much more easily. The Luke is also a little too squishy and flexible to give me the G-spot pressure I’m really after.

What About the Bullet Vibe?

I never expect much from the mini bullets that are sometimes included with dildos. They’re clearly an afterthought on the part of the manufacturer, and it shows.

Mini bullet vibrator for clit play

Though I will say that the bullets included with the BMS range have given me an idea for a creative orgasm control/mindfuck scene: “if you really need to cum, you’ll be able to get off with this crappy little buzzy thing. If not, guess you don’t actually need it!” So, you know, I can still eroticise shit sex toys sometimes!

If you’re buying the Luke or any other dildo in the BMS Addiction range, consider the bullet an unnecessary add-on that probably won’t do much. If you’re looking for a vibrator specifically, there are far better options on the market!

You Might Like the Luke If…

If you like softer dildos with plenty of flex, the Luke will be a great match for you. This softer silicone is a great step up for people who have tried TPE/TPR/jelly dildos and are looking for something safer but with the same squish and softness.

The Luke is also a great choice for people who like straighter toys. Some people find the intense G-spotting of curved toys painful, or just enjoy the deeper penetration that a toy like the Luke can provide. If that’s you, then snap this one up!

But It Might Not Suit You So Well If…

If you prefer more rigid toys for penetration, look elsewhere. If intense G-spot pressure or firmness does it for you, the Luke is unlikely to be a good fit. Similarly, if you enjoy curved toys for precision G-spot (or prostate) targeting, the Luke won’t be the best choice for you.

Final Thoughts

The Luke wasn’t a great fit for my body, simply because I prefer something a little more rigid and a little more curved for penetrative. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a great toy! If you’re after a soft, body-safe, semi-realistic dildo with a fun aesthetic, you can’t go far wrong.

The Luke retails for £39.55. I’m assuming that the higher price-point compared to the Steven and other single-colour options is due to the additional labour involved in producing the lovely swirled marble effect. It’s still well priced for the quality and will last you years.

[Toy Review] Avant Pride P8 Bi Pride Dildo

What’s one of the best ways to show your pride? Through your sex toys, obviously! That’s why I’m thrilled to be bringing you another review from Blush’s Avant Pride range. Today we’re looking at the Pride P8 bi pride dildo, which was sent to me by my friends at The Pleasure Garden.

Avant Pride P8: Facts & Figures

The Avant Pride P8 is a hand-poured dildo in body-safe silicone made by the extraordinary Blush Novelties (they of the best bullet vibe in the world fame.) It’s part of the Avant Pride line of silicone toys in various pride flag colours. The P8 represents the bisexual pride flag: pink at the top, blue at the bottom, and a thinner stripe of purple in the middle.

Avant Pride P8 bisexual pride dildo

Now I want virtually every product imaginable in this colour scheme, partly because I’m bisexual as fuck but also just because it’s a really pretty combo. So obviously I’m enamoured with this dildo before I’ve even taken it out of the box. Interestingly, it looks super shiny in the product pic but the real version is definitely more matte, though no less beautiful.

The Avant Pride P8 came packaged in a clear-fronted box, enabling the buyer to see the exact size and shape for themselves. I do wish sex toy manufacturers would be a little more conscious of the amount of single-use plastic their packaging contains, but at least it’s the recyclable sort.

The Pride P8 offers 6.9″ (17.7cm) in insertable length, and just under 1.5″ (3.8cm) in girth. It is semi-realistic in shape, with a veined shaft leading to a lifelike pronounced head.

Water-based lube is recommended. You can clean your P8 with warm soapy water, or boil-sterilise for a more thorough clean.

Design and Feel

This thing is made of the softest silicone imaginable! Seriously, it feels absolutely lovely in my hand (and everywhere else). Just super silky, squishy and velvety. This toy is made of premium silicone in the truest sense of the word.

The Pride P8’s shaft is straight, but very flexible. It has tonnes of give which allows for comfortable insertion and thrusting, and it flexes with your body so you can angle it in the way that works for you. Honestly, if anything, I might have liked a little LESS flex. I occasionally found it hard to get the amount of G-spot pressure I prefer.

With that said, the P8 still feels fantastic in use. The ridges provide gentle internal stimulation and the head is just the right size and shape for G-spotting. I’m likely to reach for this dildo when my body is craving something gentler and when my more rigid toys aren’t cutting it.

People who like girthier toys might find the Pride P8 too narrow for their tastes. Personally, I love a good slimline dick sometimes (too much girth can hurt) and the P8 is an ideal size.

Other Uses

The Avant Pride P8 comes with a super-strong suction cup base. That means you can attach it to any hard, flat surface and play hands-free, if that’s your jam. I don’t really play this way myself, but I like to test things for you folks like the good sex blogger I am. I am extremely impressed with the P8’s suction cup and how well it held. Nothing is dislodging it until you want to!

Bi flag sex toy from Avant Pride dildo range

This toy is also harness-compatible. You’ll need a 1.5″ O-ring to pair it with your favourite strap-on harness.

Finally, the Pride P8 is anal-safe, thanks to its flared base. The slim design might make it particularly good for those who are just exploring anal play and find thicker toys intimidating.

Verdict

The Avant Pride P8 is a simple yet stylish, effective, and versatile dildo. It’s comfortable to use and visually gorgeous. Best of all, it retails for an astonishingly affordable £29.99.

If you’re a bi babe (or ally) of any gender looking to show off your pride in dildo form, you’ve come to the right place.

[Toy Review] Temptasia Harness Briefs & Jezebel Dildo

I’ve had these harness briefs and this dildo in my “to review” pile for ages.

Unfortunately, I don’t have sex with vulva owners super often, and the dildo is a little too big for my current pegging adventures with my penis-owning partner, so it took a while for me to have chance to test them. However, I’ve now tested from both the giving and receiving perspective, so I feel prepared to tell you all about them!

I’m reviewing these items together, even though you purchase them separately, because I received them – and tested them – as a pair. Do I think it’s a match made in sexy heaven? Read on to find out…

Temptasia: Affordable Delights

I’ve previously reviewed Temptasia’s jewelled butt plug, which you may recall I was really impressed with, and overall I’m a big fan of this product line from Blush Novelties. Everything is body-safe and great quality for the price.

Temptasia Harness Briefs

I LOVE these briefs! The material is a soft and stretchy black cotton/spandex blend, which makes them super comfortable against the skin. They also didn’t leave me over hot or unnecessarily sweaty.

They come equipped with a 1.5″ O-ring (slightly stretchy) which can accommodate most harness-compatible dildos or packers. There are also two strategically-placed inner pockets where you can put a vibrating bullet, ideal for giving some clitoral stimulation to the wearer.

Though I’m cis and pretty femme, I really enjoyed the masculine aesthetic of these boxer-style harness briefs. As they’re comfy enough for day to day wear, they’re ideal for trans-masculine folks who want to wear a packer as well as for play purposes. I enjoyed pairing them with my glitteriest, most ridiculously colourful femme dildo, because fucking with gendered norms is my jam.

They’re even machine washable! Just stick them on a gentle 30 degrees cycle and air-dry, and you’re good to go.

A note on sizing:

The product listing helpfully contains the waist circumference of each size of briefs. However, as they’re super stretchy, don’t worry if you’re between sizes or a bit over or under.

Mine are a size Medium. My play partner wears a UK 8 and she was able to wear these comfortably, though they were a touch big for her. I’m currently wearing a UK 16 and the Medium was, though wearable, a little on the small side. I’d be more comfortable in a size up. I’m actually seriously considering buying another pair in Large because I love them so much.

Broadly, I’d recommend a Small if you’re a size 6-10, Medium for 12-14, Large for 16-18, and XL for 18-20 (all UK sizes, I don’t know how that translates across the pond!) Sadly, XL is the largest size they go up to.

Jezebel Silicone Dildo

I was given the choice of three dildos with my Temptasia harness briefs, and I chose the Jezebel – in part for the beautiful red colour! It’s a gorgeous bright crimson, and the base is a heart shape. Cuteness galore!

The Jezebel is a 6.1″ long (5.3″ insertable) dildo with a diameter of 1.5″ and a gentle curve, making it ideal for g-spot stimulation. The flared suction-cup base makes it ideal for harness play, for sticking to surfaces for hands free fun, and even for anal play.

The Jezebel is made of 100% smooth, body-safe silicone. Clean with a sterile medical wipe or gentle soap and water, and stick it in a pan of boiling water or in the top rack of the dishwasher to completely sterilise. It’s latex and non-latex condom compatible, and will play best with water-based lube.

How do they play together?

Brilliantly! The positioning of the Jezebel dildo inside the Temptasia harness briefs was perfect for g-spot stimulation (as the receiver) and easy positioning and thrusting (as the giver). These items were clearly designed with use together in mind.

Do I recommend them?

Yes! This is the most comfortable and user-friendly strap on harness I’ve ever tried, and these items pair perfectly together. And at $29.99 for the briefs and $29.99 for the dildo, you really can’t go far wrong!

[Toy Review] Lifelike Lover Luxe Silicone Realistic Dildo

Update 02/03/22: this product is still available but this particular colourway has been discontinued.

First, a note: I am changing how I do reviews in that I am now piloting a system where I DON’T give a star rating. Toy reviews will always rely heavily on subjectivity, as all our bodies are different – but I am now wondering if the star rating system came across as passing an inherent value judgement on a toy, when actually my opinion on any product is by definition subjective. If a toy is objectively bad (body-unsafe, for example, or really horribly made) I probably just won’t bother reviewing it in the first place. In the products I review, I want to focus more on what worked for me, what didn’t, and what might work with others’ unique bodies and preferences.

Now with that out of the way, on to the review!

I’m forever being asked for recommendations of good quality, body-safe dildos at affordable prices. There are many wonderful realistic silicone dildos on the market, but many of them tend to be expensive – Vixen Creations do their wonderful VixSkin dildos, but not everyone can afford to drop £100+ on a toy.

Luckily, Lovehoney have got you covered!

Lifelife Lover is a new range of realistic toys from Lovehoney. It’s important to note that some of them are made of PVC, which I do not endorse as a toy material (it’s porous, for one thing). However, there are 8 silicone options in the range – a 5.5″ and an 8″, each available in four colourways – which I heartily recommend. Silicone is body-safe, hypoallergenic and non-porous. I chose the 8 inch version in purple for this review. (A girl can never have too many purple dicks in her collection). The other colours available are black, Caucasian flesh colour, and bright pink.

Details

This dildo is 8″ long from base to tip, with an insertable length of 7″. At the widest point, its circumference is 5″. There’s also a smaller model available.

The Lifelike Lover design really is very… well, lifelike! It resembles a circumcised cock (or an uncut dick with the foreskin rolled back, I guess) with its pronounced head, there are accurate “veins” all down the shaft, and there’s even a meatus (don’t you love that word?) and textured balls.

This 8″ model retails for £32.99, while the 7″ models are £24.99. I cannot overstate this: this is such a good price for a realistic, pure silicone toy of this quality.

In Use

This dildo feels absolutely divine to me. The Lifelike Lover dildos have a very slight curve (again, sticking with the realism) and the pronounced head is wonderful for G-spot stimulation. I like to press the head against my G-spot and just wiggle the toy slightly to get the pressure I enjoy. The silicone is soft and pliable, meaning you can angle it just right for your body’s preferences, but firm enough to thrust with satisfactorily.

Being silicone, it warms up quickly with your body heat once inserted. You could also run it under some warm water prior to use to get it nicely warmed up.

All Lifelike Lover silicone dildos have suction cup bases, which makes them ideal for hands-free use – stick it to the edge of the shower, a hard floor, the window if you’re feeling daring, and have fun. I can attest to the strength and quality of the suction cup, as it has just taken be both hands to prise it away from where it had suctioned itself to my desk. When stuck to a surface, it sticks out at the perfect just-above-horizontal angle. It’s also harness-compatible, making it ideal for strap-on play or pegging, and has a large enough base to be anal safe.

Care & Cleaning

The best way to clean pure silicone toys without motors is to boil-sterilise them. Just pop it in a pan of hot water on the stove and boil for about 10 minutes, then dry thoroughly before you put it away. This kills any germs or bacteria, keeping your toy super hygienic and also making it safe for sharing, if that’s something you want to do.

If you’re using it between partners without sterilising in between (or wanting to use it for anal and vaginal play in the same session,) it’s an ideal shape to be condom-compatible. If you’re using the larger size toy, I recommend a larger condom to ensure against breakage – 8″ is bigger than an average bio-cock and regular size condoms are really designed for slightly smaller dicks than this.

For silicone toys, water-based lube is recommended.

So Do I Recommend It?

Yes – very much so. If you’re looking for a realistic style dildo at an affordable price, you can’t go far wrong with these.
