8 out of 10
Would recommend if you don’t have arthritis and like g-spot drag.
Pairs well with Margaritas. Sort of all-around nice, but if you don’t like the main feature, ends badly.
So I used a gift card and a discount code to acquire this dildo. Of course I wanted the stone one, but I don’t have a spare $100, so I didn’t spring for it. Instead, I found the silicone version of this toy and I said “It’s the same shape, so what’s the difference?” Having never tried the stone one, I can’t say 100%, but I’m like 80% sure that this silicone made all the difference for me.
As I said, there was a discount code and a gift card to acquire this toy. As a result, I ended up spending a really low amount for this toy. I bought it as a way of saying “It’s really new, but since it was inexpensive (for me), I might not like it and that’s okay.” Almost more of a novelty because there is a stone version of it. (It’s also the shape of the we-vibe Rave, and I really wanna try that too.) What I didn’t expect was for it to become a staple in my bedroom.
The D.1 can be acquired in Black, Sky Blue or Pink (because of course). I chose the blue because I didn’t own enough blue things yet, and I wanted to try a new color. Additionally, as I mentioned above, it can be found in stone, and god it’s pretty. They come shipped in a fancy box with a beautiful foam form to hold them in place. The box can be used as storage so long as it’s clean. It seems really durable, so I would opt for that (if I didn’t have a storage system already). However the box not subtle, so please be aware of that if this is your plan.
When I got it in the mail, I opened this very fine packaging and immediately touched it. It felt so soft on my hands. I thought for sure that it would be like silk going in. Hoooooo boy, was I super wrong. Everyone must know, there is SO much drag on this silicone. I said the silicone feels soft, but not silky. It’s also not squishy. Like at all. Think about that softness as a texture and less as a…state of being? It’s like shoving a towel up there, and that’s not necessarily a pleasant feeling. So break out the lube (you’ll need a lot, like a whole sample size).
However, I will say this: after I used it a couple of times, that drag started to feel really good. There’s a big moment for me when a toy goes from being a toy to being an interaction. When I use something like The Pure Wand, I know exactly what I’m getting, and I know I’m getting it fast. It’s almost mechanical. This toy is different. It’s firm enough to snap my g-spot awake, but that drag is what really sets it apart. It’s like a really firm fingering, instead of using a toy.
My boyfriend can attest to the fact that I was angry when I used this dildo. My exact words were “IT’S SO CHEAP. WHY IS IT SO GOOD?” Granted, the first couple of times, I was so horny that almost anything would have worked. However, this dildo continues to be good. That asymmetry is so wonderful for me, and that drag is so welcome to me because of it’s unique g-feel. (Ugh, I hate that, I’ll never use it again, I promise.)
I watched a video of “How to Use the D.1” where they used a twisting corkscrew motion instead of a thrusting one. This is the downside of the D.1. That motion makes my wrist hurt so much, I never use it. Tried it once and I was like, “Nope. No time for that. Never again.” So…don’t do that if you have wrists that are anything expect peak condition. Use this to thrust and change angles as you please, but it’s a little hard to do even that, thanks to the handle shape.
The D.1 is designed so you can use both sides of it. I’m not sure why you’d ever want to use the handle, as it seems to offer no real shape or stimulation, but I’m not judging if you do. I just think there are cheaper simple dildos out there. Because the handle is designed to be insertable, what really happens is that there is no real handle. Even thrusting with this thing is a chore because getting a grip is so hard. Alas, I’m still in search of a really perfect handle for my insertables.
Over all, I think this dildo feels great, but be prepared to use a lot of lube. Additionally, if you have any type of wrist problem, you may want to skip this dildo because it’s unique, but not worth the aggravation of existing conditions. It may very well cause a condition. i’m not sure, because I’m not an orthopedist!
