Meet my new neighbor. At least that’s what the box says. She is the girl next door. As a Sexpert for CalExotics we are given 1 toy a month to review, and this was this months. All of the toys up to this point have been women’s toys, so Mrs. Swanky had the pleasure of doing the reviews. This month, not so much. This month, Swanky Jay is on the hook for the review. This is more or less a first for me, so I was definitely skeptical and a bit hesitant to check it all out. A few months ago, the Mrs had bought a disposable Tenga men’s toy, because she was intrigued by the demo we had seen. We used it playing around one night, and that was that. In 35 years, that is my entire experience with masturbation toys. Before that, if I had the urge, I had a hand.
Back to the story at hand (the pun was only slightly intended)…This shows up on my doorstep yesterday. Most girls next door usually only want to borrow sugar, or your phone…this one actually wanted sex. Before I agreed I had to do an inspection. I wanted to know what exactly she was bringing to the table. The dimensions on this toy measure 5.5″ x 2.5″. It is made using phthalate free, non-toxic materials: PureSkin Thermoplastic Rubber TPR. The pure skin technology hits home, and livens this toy up just a bit. It doesn’t give off the cheap feel of the jelly or silicone toys. The molded pussy on one end, is actually decently done. It’s smaller than typical, but the detail to design is obvious. I have seen many where it’s just a hole punched in both ends, and that’s it. This toy delivers from the design standpoint. The outside of it is rigid and wavy, which I’m assuming is there to provide a better grip once things get going.
Well after all the inspections the Girl Next Door checks out. I decide to give her a chance instead of just slamming the door in her face. The box says to use a good water based lube, which makes sense due to the material of the toy (See my article here on lubricants). So after grabbing some lube and settling down, things get awkward. Apparently the Girl Next Door don’t do foreplay (that would have been helpful to know up front), she is just into quickies. Being a newbie to this I wasn’t sure which direction to go with. Do I put the lube on me or the toy? Then I decide to just add a bit to both. The opening seemed to be very small at first. Took a little maneuvering to get things started, but once in…there was a nice grip to it. The toy wasn’t just some loose piece of “rubber” flapping with the motions. I did have to add a bit more lube after a handful of strokes (yes, another intended pun). I don’t know if I just didn’t add enough the first time or if maybe it absorbed into the toy. The feeling overall…was not bad. I was semi-impressed. If you decided you want more pressure, the material is built so you can squeeze and apply more direct pressure. If you want less pressure…well…there’s not really an option for that.
This toy added a new perspective for me on sex toys, and sexual health. I have been in the business for 6 years and just never really had an interest in them outside of being intrigued by the look. I now see why they became so popular. I used to sell tons of these things. The last thing I was curious about for this little lady was the retail price. I know it is a new item from CalExotics so I wasn’t sure if we had it online yet or not. I head on over to SwankyAdultStore.com and low and behold, there it is. We have it in all 3 colors: Black, Brown and Ivory, and for the VERY reasonable price of only $14.26. I fully expected this toy to retail for over $30.00 as I used to carry some very similar in size, shape, and weight for $34.99.
Bottom line, for just over 14.00 this toy is a must have if you are into men’s masturbators. It was a good weight, a good fit, and cleaned up nicely. It has a double opening for cleanup. Anti-Bacterial toy cleaner is the best choice, but if you don’t have any on hand, anti-bacterial soap serves the same purpose. It has been rumored that soap can cause the toy to dry or crack, so if you go that route you do so at your own discretion. But hell at 14.00, you can afford to replace it if something happens to it! ALWAYS add a restoring powder to it after cleaning to preserve it. The Mrs has several real skin type vibes, so we always have this stuff lying around. Check below to pick up this steal of an item.
