Admittedly I’m someone who can’t say no to a bargain, so when I saw this behemoth of an anal dildo on sale for £10 – a quarter of what it normally sells for – I couldn’t help but snap it up in an instant. It had to come in use eventually right?
Read the review after the jump!
Weighing in at just over 1kg of solid black rubber, the Intimidator is a hefty toy which certainly lives up to its name.
At an imposing 11” tall – 10” of which are insertable – this toy is aimed at those who truly enjoy the bigger things in life, yet this aside it’s also surprisingly versatile. The topmost bulb of the toy has a diameter of just under 1.9”, and while not best suited for anal beginners, it should be manageable by anyone with moderate experience. Beyond this point the toy narrows by 0.33” before gradually widening again until it reaches the maximum insertable thickness of 3.6” near the base. It’s not until you get down to 5” from the tip that the diameter returns to 1.9”, meaning that anyone who can insert the end can easily enjoy at least half of the toy right away, before they need to begin to worry about its size.
Due to the wide 4” base and the weight, the Intimidator has a low centre of gravity, making it perfect to be used placed on a floor or chair, and squatting over it, without needing to hold it in place with a hand, or obtaining a suction cup. I found this to be my favourite position to use it in, as the bulbous tip really hits the prostate every time you lower yourself down onto it, causing the sort of sensations that have you wanting to do it again, and again, and again.
The Intimidator is made from Doc Johnson’s phthalate-free PVC, with their antibacterial Sil-A-Gel additive, which is quite a firm material. It has a fair amount of flex in the top third for you to be able to bend it around, but it doesn’t give very much when you squeeze it, meaning it’s not the most comfortable material upon initial insertion. The exterior is nice and smooth, so it glides easily in and out during use, and it’s completely free from mould lines. There is some shallow ribbing down the shaft, but this seems mostly cosmetic as you don’t feel it at all inside you; there’s no noticeable sensation of a bump going down. Unfortunately the Silagel does have something of a plasticy odor about it, I wouldn’t describe it as overly unpleasant – and I’ve encountered worse – but it’s not especially pleasant either, it’s more tolerable than anything. The material also seems to be quite hungry for lube; I found myself having to use more of a standard water-based lube than I would on other toys, just to get an even coverage over a comparable area. For this reason I’d recommend pairing this toy with a thicker cream style lubricant.
Due to the very gentle gradient of the toy it does make the perfect tool for training yourself to accept wider things, but in order to get the benefit of that you need to be able to first handle the length, as 10” really is a lot. Due to the quite bulbous nature of the tip, I’m not sure that this toy is the right one to use in an attempt to take that extra length for the first time.
On the subject of the packaging there isn’t a great deal to say, it’s just a simple clear plastic shell which does its job of holding the item in place, but there’s really no hiding what’s inside. I found it quite convenient to store the toy in when not in use.
Overall I’m very pleased with this toy; it’s a lot of fun to use, whether you’re ready to take the whole thing, or if like me you’re quite happy to just make use of the top half for now.
