Today we’re going to be taking a look at the all new prostate massager attachment for the Doxy No. 3, courtesy of the fine folks over at Nexus.
So November is here, the month of gunpowder, treason, and plot – Thanksgiving if you’re across the pond – and Black Friday seemingly everywhere now. It’s also a reminder to me that I’ve had this little toy in my possession for a year now, and it’s about time that I put my thoughts down on paper.
Following on from my recent review of the Hush, here’s one that’s long overdue.
A couple of years ago back in early 2015 an unexpected parcel arrived at my door from my lovely friends at Tantus, containing none other than what was then their brand-new Prostate Play, and I’ll admit that initially I was a little sceptical about it. You may be aware that in the past I haven’t had a great deal of luck with this type of toy, and naturally that has clouded my opinion of them.
When I did eventually get around to trying out the Prostate Play I was actually pleasantly surprised by what I felt, but I still didn’t quite know how to go about reviewing it, and so I set it aside waiting for the right time.
The shape and design of the Prostate Play is quite similar to what you’d typically associate with most prostate massagers on the market. It has that vague T-shape to it, with a lumpy shaft, and at the bottom it has Tantus’s anchor base, modified with the addition of a small nodule to apply pressure to the perineum. The only significant difference in the design is that the section at the very top of the shaft is more pronounced. It curls sharply forwards like the stinger on a scorpion’s tail, poised ready to strike. You can immediately sense that this is the portion of the toy that’s going to have the biggest impact during use.
By itself the Prostate Play doesn’t do a whole lot, and what I mean by that is that it’s not a toy that you wear for the sake of wearing it. It’s not like a plug that you walk around wearing because you enjoy the fullness of it, or the feeling something rattling inside you, and it’s not the same as one of those Aneros devices which claim to be able to do almost magical things just from you flexing your pelvic floor. What it is is a practical toy; it’s a toy you’re going to want to put inside yourself when you intend to have an orgasm. It’s only once you begin to have sex or masturbate that you really notice the effect of the toy pushing so firmly on your prostate. It changes the sensation slightly, elevates it, makes it feel more intense. As that orgasm starts to build inside you it’s accentuated by that pressure on the prostate, all working in unison. If you couple it with a strong rumbling pulse pattern from an appropriate bullet, then it raises the bar again. It’s what I’d consider an orgasm enhancement tool, and it takes what your body’s already capable of, and just pushes it a little further. When you finally do hit that moment of release, it’s like one of those moments when a climax is unexpectedly greater than usual, and then you fall back feeling drained and content.
I think that it is ideal for use with a partner, because it’s something that you can set up and then just go about your business. You can focus all your attention on them, while the Prostate Play takes care of things on its end. There’s nothing to get it the way, distract, or require constant tinkering with, so it’s very convenient. If you are playing alone then you’ll find that it’s a toy that encourages you to use it with others in your collection. If you have a Pulse, a Cobra Libre, or a magic wand that gives you incredible sensations from your penis every time, then couple it with that action from the Prostate Play inside you and see where it takes you.
So what’s the verdict? If I’m honest, it’s still not 100% my type of toy, but that’s ok because that’s just me. What I do know though, is that it performs so much better than the likes of your Prostimulator, or Nexus, etc. That in itself is saying a lot. I definitely did enjoy my experience with the Prostate Play in the end, and while it’s never going to challenge something like the Lelo Hugo, it does make a pretty damn good budget alternative. On this basis I’d happily recommend the Tantus Prostate Play.

A mere month ago Lelo released a trio of exciting new prostate massagers which I reviewed here on this very blog, and now today they’ve gone and announced one more to add to the mix.
Clearly they work fast over at Lelo, and I was lucky enough to receive one to review, so let’s go ahead and see what I made of the Loki Wave!
Those of you with keen eyes and a comprehensive amount of Lelo product knowledge may have noticed that, much in the same way as the Loki looked an awful lot like the Lelo Mona, the Loki Wave has an uncanny resemblance to the Mona Wave, and this does seem to be a trend of Lelo upcyling their most popular G-spot vibrators into prostate massagers. Personally I’m all in favour of this and think it makes sound business sense. I’ve long heard my female reviewer friends rave about the Mona 2 and Mona Wave, and honestly if someone had sent me one I’d have used it in a flash, but it’s nice now to have specifically anal-safe versions for guys to try.
In total there are 10 different modes to choose from, and they all control a number of different variables. You can have the Wave Motion active or not, you can have the internal motor active or not, you can have the motor in the perineum arm active or not, and you can either be in constant vibration mode or experiencing a pattern. It’s a really great selection, but it’s also quite a lot to be thinking about as you’re cycling through them using only up and down arrows, trying to find just the one you want. Luckily the toy does remember your last setting when you turn it off, so if you have a favourite then it’s easy to stick with.
The real star of the show here though is the Wave Motion, because if you only wanted vibrations then you’d just buy a Loki. The motion technology is what takes the Loki Wave to a whole other level. When it’s activated the main bulb of the device moves towards the perineum arm and then back again, like a robotic hand making a squeezing motion. Inside the body it has the effect of gently applying pressure repeatedly to the prostate, just as though you were attempting to massage it with a manual toy. It’s actually quite an amazing effect, especially in conjunction with the strong vibrations. It’s honestly like nothing I’ve felt throughout hundreds of reviews. One good feature about the presence of the perineum arm is that it does provide leverage while the toy is in motion, and ensures that it’s actually the internal portion that’s moving, and not just the handle wagging around outside the body. I make this point because it’s not the first time I’ve tried a prostate massager with motion, if you’ll recall the Nexus Revo 2. In that case it employed a completely different rotary motion, but most of the time the part that moved was the base outside the body, and not the internal arm. With the Loki Wave it’s not strictly necessary to hold the handle during use in order to feel the effect of the motion, but it can alter the sensations slightly if you choose to.
What’s actually nice about the Wave Motion is that you don’t have to do a thing with the toy, it’s the ultimate lazy man’s pleasure. With the Loki I’d often find myself wanting to thrust a little with it to get that extra touch of manual stimulation, but now that’s completely taken care of. You just select your favourite pattern and vibration strength, then lie back and let it go to town. The whole combination of effects just feels incredible, from the deep vibrations simultaneously penetrating the perineum and prostate, to that methodic back and forth motion, prodding and squeezing your prostate, like it was a piece of dough being kneaded by a strong-armed Swedish baker. It’s one of those toys that makes you think again of the mythical prostate orgasm, and wonder once more if you might be able to reach it. If you just let it do its thing then it does seem possible, and feels great just like this, but coupled with regular masturbation you’re guaranteed one of the best orgasms of your life.
