I’m not going to lie. I bought this purely for it’s colour. I mean come on, it’s a freakin’ rainbow for goodness sakes. I’ve done more than taste the rainbow. I’ve shoved it up my butt. And it was good.

Sadly, after being fucked by this rainbow, there was no pot of gold at the end of it. However, it’s not the end of the world, because novelty purposes aside, this is a cute little dildo that I think would appeal to a vast number of people. I ordered my dildo through Lovehoney as soon as I saw it was available. I was praying a UK retailer would stock this soon, and it was almost as if they heard my cries. The impatient bugger inside wanted it ASAP so it arrived the next day. I couldn’t wait to tear it out of it’s packaging and have a good look.

First Impressions

The Rainbow Pop! (or PrideDildo to give it it’s proper title) arrives in a very plain looking cardboard box, with a clear cock-shaped window in on the front, so you can see your rainbow dildo in the flesh. As I was staring at it, for some reason I was immediately reminded of those Rowntree’s Fruit Pastille Ice Lollies… and at this point, I was torn between 2 emotions – I was both hungry and horny. I carefully opened the box and inspected it. It was a little smaller than I was expecting – and I noticed here there is a slight discrepancy in the size that the box states, and what is actually inside.

The dildo measures 8 inches in total heigh, with 5.5 inches of insertable length. On the side of the box, it mentions that it has a girth of 5.5 inches around. It doesn’t. It’s actually only 5 inches. So this puts it’s at a very realistic, average size. The dildo is made from premium body safe silicone. It’s firm and flexible, yet the shaft still maintains a satisfactory amount of squish for something that’s not dual density. It has a prominent glans, with realistic foreskin wrinkles and frenulum. The shaft has a few veins for texture, but it’s very very mild. There is a suction cup on the base which is very firm, and should stick to most surfaces without a problem. The real star of the show, is obviously the colour. It just looks so bright, vibrant and fun!

In Use

I honestly didn’t expect this dildo to do a lot for me, as it’s smaller than most of the dildos I use on a regular basis. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I took this out for a test run. Thanks to it’s smaller size, I found that I didn’t need to do any warming up before slipping this inside. Just a good, liberal coating of lube (as the silicone does have an ever-so-slight ‘draggy’ sensation) and it was inside and I was happy.

The length was enough to hit the right spots, and it’s slender girth made thrusting extremely easy and pleasurable. Slapping the suction cup on the floor or wall allowed for a good hands-free ride. For a quick and simple thrill, it does the job. Alternatively, it’s a good starting point for when you want to warm up to take slightly larger toys. Truth be told, it’s nothing really special in terms of it’s feel, but it’s not terrible either. It’s a pretty standard, solid dildo with a realistic enough size that should appeal to most beginners and intermediate players.

I think more fun can be had with how you actually use it, rather than it’s general sensation. The size makes it perfect for pegging/strap-on play and I could imagine that it would be quite fun to be teasing your bottom and watching the colours disappear, using them as a sort of depth-gauge. It’s also great for those who want a ‘realistic’ shaped toy, but don’t like the realistic flesh-colouring.

I have one issue. And it’s not with the actual toy itself. It’s the price. This dildo is almost £45. We’ve all seen that it’s possible to find good quality silicone for under £20. For it’s size, I almost feel that this is insultingly priced, and is attracting the higher price tag for the simple fact it’s rainbow or pride coloured. Now, I wouldn’t have an issue with this, if say… portions of the sales were going towards LGBTQ charities – I mean, that’s surely the reason you would make a pride dildo in the first place, right? But no. As far as I can tell, this is just a dildo that is rainbow coloured, has a ‘pride label’ slapped on it, and is double the price of other similarly sized and shaped dildos. Or perhaps i’m just being too cynical? What do you reckon?

Clean-up and Maintenance

The PrideDildo is easy to clean and look after. It’s safe to boil/bleach/put through the dishwasher. You can even just wash with warm water and toy cleaner. Whatever is most convenient for yourself. As I mentioned earlier, the silicone is slightly draggy, so naturally this means it picks up dust and hair very easily, so I would recommend a quick rinse before use, and when storing away, perhaps keeping it in it’s original box would be best. Or if you happen to have a spare storage bag laying around, pop it in there until next time.

Summary

So generally speaking, I do actually really like this dildo. It’s not really challenging for me, but for my other half, it’s the right sort of size. It’s great to use solo (thanks to the sturdy suction cup) and I think it’s great for beginners, and perfect for some fun strap on play. I absolutely adore the rainbow colouring, and I almost feel compelled to have it on display – it seems such a shame it has to sit in a dark box along with all my other beautifully coloured silicone dildos – perhaps one day in the future, eh?

I’m just a little sad that it’s priced fairly high, especially when there are similar toys going for under £20, and it makes me sad to think that no-one took the opportunity to create this beautiful pride dildo, and then not do something good with it, like the charitable donations to LGBTQ charities. But it’s still super pretty…so what do I know.
