It’s been a long time since we reviewed a toy that was ‘explicitly’ designed for prostate play. I guess I go through phases where p-stim and anal play are the very height of pleasure. Then other periods where i’m a bit more ambivalent and i’m just like… meh; too much effort.
At the moment, we are kind of in the middle of one of those periods. Like, I really want to be fucking myself stupid with everything I have in my collection; but mild health issues have kind of prevented me from doing it with such wild abandon, that half the time, i’m more than likely just to settle for a good old-fashioned wank. But when you run a blog such as this one, then it does cause a bit of an issue. But that’s for another post…
In the most recent batch of products that the kind people over at MEO arranged for us to review, they included this Maverick Rotating Vibrating Prostate Stimulator. Considering it’s been around 8 months since we’ve reviewed a prostate toy specifically, it was a welcome addition to the review pile. I’ve mumbled on enough already, so let’s just get on with it.
The packaging is cheap and simple, a cardboard box with a plastic tray holding everything in place. The Maverick is a rotating AND vibrating prostate toy; so the tip of the shaft rotates (in a similar way to the Nexus REVO Stealth or the Beaded Backdoor Rabbit). There are 3 speeds of vibration and 4 different patterns. There are two vibration motors – one in the tip, and one in the perineal arm. The rotating shaft has 3 speeds.
The Maverick has 5 inches of insertable length, a circumference of 4.5 inches around it’s widest point at the tip and 2.75 inches at it’s narrowest. It’s made from smooth silicone with a lovely teal ABS plastic trim. It is USB rechargeable, and truthfully, I have no idea what the charge time is (the official website for the product doesn’t state, and it’s not included in the MEO product description either AND there is no manual with the product either). As for battery life, it’s got around about an hour of playtime for definite. It also does seem to hold it’s charge fairly well.
The Maverick is of a decent size, that I think most folx would be able to hop straight onto this without much of a warm-up before hand. The 4.5 inches girth at the top is fairly manageable if you take it slowly and use plenty of lube. For myself, the Maverick inserted like a dream, and the shape of the toy felt incredibly comfortable once it was flush against my body. The length is good, I could feel the tip of the toy nudging at my prostate before anything had even started. So I was going into this with fairly high expectations.
Let’s start with the vibrations. There are 3 constant speeds and then 4 patterns (all very simple pulses and waves). The box describes them as ‘powerful’. I say the PR team need to get a new dictionary, because these vibrations are not powerful. At all. They are, to put it politely, mild. I would also put them very firmly in the ‘Buzzy AF’ category. Very high pitched and more ‘tickly’ than pleasurable. On the plus side, the vibrations do resonate from the tip, so when applied to the prostate, they are reaching the places they should be. It’s just for me, it’s so under-whelming.
The rotational settings were far more interesting. It offers a good range of motion (or as much motion as you can really give once confined inside the butt). In order for it to be most effective, I need to hold onto the base (or sit on it) otherwise all that happens is the base rotates whilst the shaft stays still (god damn those Sphincter muscles!). Once you get to a position that works (for me, it’s definitely sitting on it), the rotations inside are noticeable and quite intense.
And that’s when I remembered why I had stopped using the REVO. It’s not that it feels bad, like, it feels really good. It’s just the sensation for me is so over-whelming, that it stops being pleasurable and becomes a little more uncomfortable, so I cannot use it for prolonged periods. Now, this isn’t a bad thing for the toy; it’s my own body that is like ‘DUDE, STOP, THIS IS TOO MUCH!’. It would seem that my prostate prefers the ‘gentle’ touch; so dildos and vibrations are fine; giant rotating finger is a step too far.
On the lowest rotation setting, I can keep things going for a little longer, but I just can’t seem to achieve orgasm with this one. I think, and I don’t know if it’s physically possible, but I am going to go out on a limb and say that my prostates tastes for pleasure have changed over the years. Whether it’s just because i’m getting older, or it’s just a tiny little diva that has it’s favourites and knows what it likes. I don’t know. Unlike the REVO though, you cannot operate one function without the other, but to be fair, the vibrations are so weak and boring that even if I could stop the rotations, this would still be a complete bust.
Clean-up and Maintenance
Now, I have not been able to find any source that confirms if the Maverick is actually waterproof. The website states using soap and warm water, but it also doesn’t explicitly state ‘waterproof’. To be on the safe side, I have been rinsing it, but keeping the base firmly away from the water (as the charging port is exposed). So far, we haven’t had any problems, and the Maverick still seems to be working fine. But i’m hesitant to say ‘yes, it is waterproof’ because honestly, i’m just not sure.
Aside from the vibrations, that are far too weak for me, and the fact the rotations are too intense, this isn’t a bad toy. It’s just really not for me. If I was at least able to maybe turn off the rotations and just focus on the vibrations for a while, then there might be a bit more mileage with this one. If you have any of the REVO’s, then you don’t need this. You already have the best version of this type of prostate device. If you have been interested in trying a REVO but haven’t wanted to pay the price tag, I believe this is slightly cheaper, so that might make it slightly more palatable.
For me, things like the SenseMax SenseVibe offered me so much more in the way of sensation (including good orgasms). Yes, it’s more expensive, but it’s worth every penny. If the Maverick could pack in vibrations like the SenseVibe, than this might have been a different outcome. But as it stands, the Maverick kind of get’s a hard pass from me.

The Lowdown | Prostatic Play Maverick Rotating Vibrating Prostate Stimulator
Pros: Dual motors, offers rotations and vibrations, USB rechargeable and made from body safe materisals.
Cons: Vibrations are mild and very buzzy, cannot switch off vibrations/rotations – it’s either ALL or nothing! Rotations were ‘too intense’ for myself.
Bottom Line: It’s cheaper than a REVO, but perhaps not quite as good. With some improvements to the vibrations, and perhaps adding in the option of being able to switch of rotations would go a long way to making this a more palatable toy for me.
