I swear, product names are getting longer and longer… Anyway, no – your eyes are NOT deceiving you. This is our THIRD post of the week. I know, right? Who are you and what has happened to David?

I assure you, it’s still me and I am perfectly fine. I’m finally back in a place where I have the time (and truthfully, the enthusiasm) to review again. And today we are back reviewing for one of my favourite US retailers, SheVibe, who have been very supportive and understanding – so just want to say a big thank you to them right off the bat. Anyway…

As some of you who may be regular readers know, I do love a good, realistic dildo. Whilst I don’t mind more abstract styles, I do tend to find myself drawn to the more… human-style offerings. However, one of my biggest issues with reviewing a dildo, is it gets hard trying to say something new about one, especially as essentially, they almost work the same, feel the same and… well i’m sure you get my drift. So when the option to view a VIBRATING dildo comes my way, I am excited, because YES… it makes it so much more fun to review. So I was looking forward to getting my Silicone Willy’s 8″ 10 Function Wireless Remote Controlled Dildo from SheVibe. But would it rock my spot? Well let’s find out…

First Impressions

The Silicone Willy’s line of products are the latest silicone offerings from Blush Novelties. We haven’t reviewed a lot from their vast catalogue of products, but what I have tried, has generally been fairly favourably reviewed, as the products err on the ‘purse-friendly’ side of things, and i’m all for an affordable pleasure toy. The last vibrating toy I tried from Blush was the Nude Impressions 02, and I was thoroughly impressed. It packed a powerful motor that was surprising rumbly, and I really enjoyed it. So I have to be completely honest (and it was my fault I hadn’t fully read the product description), I was a little disappointed when I saw that this product requires batteries, rather than having a rechargeable motor. I’ve yet to use a AA battery operated toy and be impressed by it. Maybe this one could change my opinion?

The Silicone Willy’s 8″ vibrator is made from, surprisingly, silicone and ABS plastic. The central core of the dildo is hard plastic, and is coated with a soft but thin layer of silicone. It does give it a slight ‘dual density’ feel, but much much firmer. The tip is modestly spongy, but the vibrating core can still be felt. Not that that’s a bad thing; it had me hoping the vibrations would be focused more towards the tip. There is a suction cup at the base for hands-free play, and it would be harness compatible as well. The remote control is also battery-powered (but this is included). The dildo has 8 inches of total length, with 6.25 insertable inches. It has a maximum girth of 5.5 inches, putting it in the realm of ‘average’ size.

In Use

Getting the toy set up is simple; unscrew the suction cup from the bottom and insert your batteries. There is a button on the base of the vibrator that you need to switch on, to allow the remote control to connect. In the event that you lose the remote, this also acts as a function button too; so pressing it will cycle you through the 10 functions. The remote has a simple on/off interface – when the light is glowing on the vibrator, you then press the on button on the remote, and it will buzz into life. Subsequent presses of the on button will take you through the various options. The ‘off’ button will stop the vibrations, but it will not turn off the vibrator completely; you’ll still need to switch it off from the base.

Thanks to it’s modestly average size, this was a toy I was able to jump onto with very little in the way of a warm up. This sort of size is perfect for me. Not too big, not too small… just right. Yes, my butthole is Goldilocks. The suction cup hold pretty firmly on my tiled walls and floor in the bathroom, and even has some good suction when slapped on my hardwood floor. It also works well with my LoveArc as well. The tapered, spongy tip helps make insertion easy and comfortable, however it does give way to a much firmer texture pretty quickly. Whilst still an average girth, firmness of the central core gives this a much ‘chunkier’ feel. There isn’t a lot of ‘give’ with this particular dildo, so it does feel a little bigger in the butt than it does in the hand. This isn’t a bad thing, but something to think about if you are thinking of purchasing as a relative newbie.

If just used as a bog-standard dildo, it’s alright. It has a good amount of length and girth and it has a nice smooth texture, allowing for a pleasant, thrusting experience. However, as it’s not flexible, I wasn’t able to really direct a lot of pressure to my prostate; it was doing something, but it wasn’t enough, and it was no where near as pleasurable as something a bit more squishy and flexible (such as the Johnny). This is where I hoped the vibrations would come to my aid.

Unfortunately, at least in my opinion, the vibrations are… lacklustre. But honestly, I sort of expected them to be. On the positive side, they do seem to be focused towards the tip, which is where I would absolutely want them to be focused. There are 5 incremental speeds and then 5 mixed patterns. The vibrations are very much on the buzzier side of the spectrum, and are very mild. On the lowest of the speeds, it’s a very gentle buzz which feels OK in hand, but is almost completely lost when inserted. On the highest of the 5 speeds, I can feel a very mild ‘tickling’ sensation that feels… nice, but it doesn’t really do a lot for me. To be fair, the added vibrations do make things a little more interested; the problem is, I definitely have OTHER vibrating dildos that just work better.

Clean-up and Maintenance

The Silicone Willy’s 8″ Wireless Remote Controlled Dildo is only splash proof, so extra care must be taken when cleaning your toy after use. The care instructions recommend a cleaning using soap and water on a damp lint cloth. You could rinse under the tap with soap or toy cleaner, but you’ll want to be careful to avoid getting any water around the battery cap. It’s also recommended to remove the batteries from the dildo when it’s not being used (you certainly don’t want batteries leaking inside). I am also a strong believer that we live in an age where toys should be waterproof/rechargeable as standard. Having to make sure you have a fresh batch of batteries on hand is more irritating than just simply plugging it in and leaving it. But that’s my hang up.

Summary

I have to admit, I am a little disappointed with this one. In an ideal world, this would have had the motor from the Nude Impressions line, been fully waterproof and rechargeable. If it had all three of these improvements, I would no doubt be singing it’s praises from the roof tops. But as it currently stands, its just a little… boring.

To give it it’s credit, it’s nice to see more vibrating dildo options in silicone, especially as most seem to be either TPE/TPR or dreaded PVC/Jelly. If you don’t need your vibrators to be super powerful, and just want something of average size that feels nice and filling, but not overwhelming, then maybe you’ll like this one. However, when i’m using this, i’m reminded of the soaring ballad from the hit musical ‘The Greatest Showman’.

It’s Never Enough (Never Never), Never Enough (Never Never), Never Enough… For Me.
