Brent Everett’s Dildos

One of gay porn’s most in-demand actors, Brent Everett, has in my opinion one of the most beautiful penises in the industry, so when Fleshjack elected to immortalise it in glorious silicone I immediately began lusting after it, and knew that eventually it would be mine.

Not content with one dildo, however, there is now a challenger, in the form of a SensaFirm™ model by Topco Sales’ Rascal™ Toys line.
The question is, which one is better, and why? I chose to buy the Fleshjack model, but until I can get hold of the SensaFirm™ too we can only speculate as to how they compare, so let’s just quickly pair up the stats after the jump.

Brent Everett Fleshjack Dildo:

  • Material: Platinum silicone
  • Length: 7 7/8″ (21cm)
  • Insertable: 6 3/4″ (17cm)
  • Diameter: 1.75″ (4.5cm)
  • Circumference: 5 5/8″ (14cm)
  • Harness compatible: Yes
  • Base: Smooth
  • Colour: Flesh tone
  • Read my review here
  • Material: SensaFirm™
  • Length: 9.25″ (23.5cm)
  • Insertable: 7.25″ (18.5cm) 
  • Diameter: 2″ (5cm)
  • Circumference: 6.28″ (16cm)
  • Harness compatible: Yes
  • Base: Suction cup
  • Colour: Hand painted

Clearly there are some variations not only in appearance and material, but in size too, and functionality. It would be really interesting to see how they fare against each other. Already owning several Fleshjack Boys dildos, and being a big silicone fan, I may be a little biased towards the Fleshjack model at this juncture, and indeed that’s the one I bought in the end. If you have any personal experience with the SensaFirm™, or indeed both of these dildos, then please share your opinions in the comments section below!

Doc Johnson: The Super 7″ vs Ballsy 7″ Super Cock

Doc Johnson is a rather interesting company; you’ll notice the more you browse through their product catalogue that they have a habit of using the same mould to produce toys of different materials. Case in point, above to the right is the Super 7″ premium platinum silicone dildo, and to the left is the Ballsy 7″ Super Cock, made from silagel. They also announced recently that similarly their dildo moulded from porn star ‘James Deen‘ would be released in two versions.

 

When you think about it, it’s rather a clever solution, because it takes a successful design and markets it at both the customer who is discerning about what materials they put inside their body, and the customer who is making a price-conscious decision.

 

While I’d love for this to be a review post, contrasting the two products, sadly it isn’t. The fact is I’m having a moment of weakness.

 
I absolutely adore silicone toys, and I’ve had my eye on the Super 7″ since last year – the blue version as a matter of fact – but I didn’t snap it up on sale when I had the chance, and now the only places that have it are asking a price that frankly seems exorbitant to me. The next thing you know the Ballsy Super Cock wanders into my sights, at  a mere £13.95, and admittedly I’m having serious thoughts about it. Now I have nothing against silagel, I have four items made from it, it’s just not silicone though. It can be inflexible, and it can smell, and I almost feel as though it would surmount to some sort of betrayal of my principles as a sex toy reviewer to spend money on the inferior version. So what does one do?
 
Update: After a long wait I finally went ahead and bought the silicone Super 7″ in blue, check out my review here!

Toy Sizes

Toys come in a variety of sizes, and are often produced according to diameter. As it can be hard to tell the size of an object just from reading a measurement, I’ve created an image of the most popular sizes on the market. The image is to scale, and depending on your monitor settings, should display as actual size.
As you can see the sizes are typically listed in Inches, and increase by increments of 1/4″. Now 1/4″ doesn’t sound like a great deal, but as I think the image illustrates quite well, 1/4″ on the diameter translates to quite a large increase in the circumference of the toy.
More images and discussion after the jump!
What I would like to see is a broader range of available sizes at the upper end of the scale. Here is a diagram comparing diameter sizes with circumferences:

Trying to work up from a 1.75″ toy to a 2.25″ may not seem that much when you’re only considering it from the point of the diameter, but the circumference difference is over an inch and a half, which is how much extra the sphincter needs to stretch. That’s no small amount.
Another problem is that measurements listed aren’t always accurate. I’ve bought toys before that said they were 2″ in diameter, but one was 1.9″ and the other was 2.3″. Small changes in diameter have a big impact on circumference, that’s the difference between 5.97″ and 6.91″ – two toys that were supposed to be the same size, with nearly an inch difference in them. Personally I find the 1.9″ leaves me wanting more, but anything over 2.25″ is a little too much. If there was something in between on the market then I would be extremely satisfied. For now though, the best option I can find to tailor your own perfect size would seem to be inflatable toys, such as the Doc Johnson Gapers, but they come with their own pros and cons.
Comment if you have an opinion, and enjoy this final image.

TitanMen Big Stuff

The lovely people at SexToys.co.uk sent me one of these to review last month. I was looking for an anal dildo that was on the thicker side, and this certainly did not disappoint.
Read the review after the jump!

When it comes to the largest version of this product, the name “Big Stuff” is almost an understatement, as it truly is a colossus of black rubber. With an average diameter of 2.3″, and a circumference of 7.5″ at the head, it’s almost the thickness of a beer can, yet ultimately more filling than any drink.
Made from Doc Johnson’s “Silagel” material – a type of PVC – the product is very solidly constructed, with a hefty weighty feel to it, and a smooth exterior free from mould lines.

Although shaped to resemble a penis, the tip of the toy is actually quite blunt, meaning the prior use of a tapered butt plug will be a necessity for most, in order to gently open the way, and handily Doc Johnson also sell one of these in the corresponding size. With preparations taken care of, the shape of the toy is enough to allow for comfortable insertion, provided you have plenty of lube on hand. If you liked the full feeling of the butt plug, then the extra length of the dildo will really take it to another level. Directly below the tip of the toy are two wide ridges, which are pronounced enough for you to feel them during use. This area gives the dildo more interest than something which is purely smooth, as you can slide up and down against the ridges and enjoy the sensations they produce. Further down the dildo the shaft bends, which is something I found slightly problematic. The sheer thickness of the toy renders the material quite inflexible, so the shape doesn’t change at all while it’s inside you, and that shape can prove to be quite awkward. When trying to get the toy in deeper, especially for the first time, the angle of the toy doesn’t seem to naturally want to follow the shape of the body, so there is a period of twisting it around and trying to position it so as to encounter the least resistance, rather than having it uncomfortably poking you in the bladder.  While I’m certain the bend isn’t a problem on the smaller models, it just seems to be a little too much to be practical on the large one, and adds what is essentially an obstacle, rather than a feature which enhances it. Had the shaft been significantly straighter, I feel it would have worked better. The base of the product is concave – much like the underside of a champagne bottle – so if you place it on a smooth flat surface and push down it acts much like a suction cup and holds it in place.

Like all Silagel products the Big Stuff does have something of a plasticy odour about it; it’s not overly unpleasant, and is tolerable, but it’s still noticeable, and strong enough to leave its aroma in an entire drawer or cupboard if you store it outside its original packaging.  Standard water-based lubricants don’t adhere to the surface quite as well as with other materials, so I found myself using somewhat more 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.
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’d have to say I’m pretty pleased with this dildo. Like all Doc Johnson products it’s well made and built to last. The one niggle I found with it isn’t a deal breaker, and something I’m certain can be worked around with perseverance.

TitanMen Intimidator

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.

Doc Johnson “The Groove”

I was in the mood for something slender for a change in contrast to my other toys, and also something with a really bumpy surface, almost similar to anal beads, and this is what I found.
Read the review after the jump!

The Groove by Doc Johnson is a great toy which manages to combine dildo, butt plug, and anal beads all in one convenient product.
It comes packaged very nicely in a cardboard box with a plastic insert to cocoon it inside. The first thing I noticed when I removed it from the box was that it had this wonderfully sweet fruity smell to the silicone. 
The toy itself is 7″ in length, with 5 bulges of differing sizes down the shaft, the largest being 1.5″ in diameter, and the smallest at the tip being about the width of a finger. It’s made entirely from Doc Johnson’s proprietary platinum silicone blend, which is one of my favourite materials. The silicone is smooth and flexible, making it incredibly comfortable to use, and the surface of the toy is free from any mould lines. One of the things I like most about the material is the way in which it absorbs the heat from the body whilst it’s inside, so as you begin to withdraw it you’ll notice this lovely feeling of warmth emanating from it.
The shape of the toy makes it suitable for all; with a little water based lube the first three bulges will slide in with ease, and then there’s the two larger ones to look forward to, or work up to as the case may be. Because of the narrow and flexible tip it makes it far easier to insert this toy deeper than other toys of a similar length, thus living up to its name as ‘prober’, bending around into new territory inside. For this reason it makes a great tool to train yourself with to accept longer items than you might be used to. The combination of the flared base, smooth neck portion, and wide final bump allows the toy to act in the manner of a butt plug. Once fully inside you can leave it there both comfortably and securely for as long as you please. The best way to experience the bulges along the shaft is when it comes to removing it. By really clenching your muscles before pulling it out you can feel every satisfying bump along the way, then relax yourself to reinsert it and repeat.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this, whether you’re looking to start out with something not too intimidating, or if you’re already confident you can handle the widest part, and are just looking for something bumpy to enjoy yourself with. It’s a quality product at a great price.
