7 out of 10
Pairs well with a Schnapps mixed drink. It’s pretty tasty, and I would even say easy. But it’s really too soft for me.
So when Shevibe offered this toy, I was originally not enthused, but I absolutely had to have this beautiful color because it’s my name, and I need everything to be about me. As soon as it arrived, I needed to take as many pictures as possible because I absolutely love this color. It’s by far one of my prettiest dildos in terms of sheer color. (Can you tell I’m a Leo???)
You eat with your eyes first, they say. And though that’s not really true for me, I will admit that I do fuck with my eyes first. Wait, no. That’s creepy.
What I mean is that aesthetics are important. I believe this is true for most people. That’s why there are such strong preferences regarding phallic or non-phallic insertables. This dildo is not too whimsical that I feel it’s pandering to me. It’s also not realistic. I think I would describe this as a very classy shape. It’s not assuming one way or another. It’s not too big, but it’s big enough to be felt. At 6 insertable inches, it comes in very average as far as length goes. Attainable, but not puny. It’s also a solid 1.5″ at it’s widest point.
Now, I want to point out that a lot of people have some issues with 1.5″ diameter, but you should not fear this dildo for that. Blush claims that this dildo is dual density, and I can confirm. There is a delightfully squishy outside to this dildo. My issue it the firm inner core. I feel that it is firmer, but it doesn’t accomplish what I need a firm core to accomplish. When I think of dual density, I think of products like Tantus or Vixen, where the flexibility isn’t noticeable. An arc at best bend. With the Helio, I can literally touch the base of the dildo with the head. I know a lot of people who would love the give and squish of this dildo, but it just frustrates me, to be honest.
Inserting the Helio is a pain because any amount of resistance will cause it to bend, which makes it difficult to thrust with any kind of force. Additionally, when I finally have it lubed and inserted, any thrusting at all will often cause it to bend in my vagina. Though this doesn’t feel bad, I don’t consider it a good thing either.
Now, there are good things about the silicone density. For one thing, this toy is the least threatening thing to ever encounter my cervix. I feel like in order to actually hurt myself with this, I would have to attach some kind of spike. Or possibly attempting to stick it into the wrong orifice entirely. Although if you have any luck shoving this in your nose, good job I guess?
Basically, this dildo feels like a beginner dildo. As we know, I’m no beginner. So this won’t be one I use very often. However, I see that there is a huge market for this. I would even say there is a need for this dildo. Something that is soft and easy to use would be helpful to folx who are new, or even have some physical trauma. Additionally, this dildo is a really great toy in the traditional sense of toy. I highly recommend sticking to the wall and just batting it around. When you’re impaired in any way (even just lacking sleep), it’s a great game.
