5 Dildos I Couldn’t Live Without

As a sex toy reviewer, you often get asked what your favorite toy is, and it’s a bit like being asked, as a fashion fan, what your favorite piece of clothing is: you can’t really give a clear answer because it depends on so many factors. The context, the occasion, the time, the place you’re at mentally or emotionally. You might love your shearling boots in winter and your red floral sundress in summer. It’s the same with sex toys.

That said, there are five dildos that I tend to come back to, time and time again. Five dildos to rule them all, you might say. Here they are. Be warned: once you get your hands on one of them, you might become so addicted that you can’t put it down…

1. Vixen Creations VixSkin Mustang (review)

The Mustang is my first choice when I’m craving something realistic. It’s touchably soft and squishy, just like a flesh-and-blood cock. The texture and shape lend themselves well to fantasizing about good ol’-fashioned PIV sex.

The head and coronal ridge stroke along my G-spot in a way that’s pleasurable without being uncomfortable, like some more intense G-spot toys are. The Mustang is also long enough to hit my A-spot with ease. Overall: an excellent dildo that makes me all starry-eyed and happy-twatted.

2. Vixen Creations Leo (review)

Another Vixen dildo? Yes, they really are that good.

Leo is similar in size and shape to the Mustang, but its thickness is more consistent throughout, and it’s made of a firmer silicone, so it feels meatier. I tend to reach for it when I want a slightly more thorough rogering than I’d get from the Mustang.

It also has some scratchy texture just below its head, which doesn’t sound like it’d feel good but it does. Nothing else I own feels like that, so when I want a little roughness, I gotta have Leo.

3. Ophoria Beyond #3

This dildo has been discontinued and the sex toy blogosphere will never truly get over it, I think. I still get emails semi-regularly from people asking if I’d be willing to part with my Beyond 3 in exchange for money or other sex toys, and I always say no. That should tell you how valuable this toy is to me.

There are other deeply-curved, hyper-effective G-spot toys out there, like the Pure Wand and the Comet Wand, but the Beyond 3 is the one I like best. Its head is round and bulbous, its curve and angle are ideal, and its looped handle is ergonomic and comfortable. It’s the best tool for inducing knee-weakening, mind-bending G-spot sensations. Other toys can come close but, for me, they can’t match the Beyond 3’s perfection.

4. Tantus Acute (review)

I don’t know about you, but for me, vaginal penetration can sometimes be a bit of a chore. It’s worth the prep work, of course, but to do it, I have to spend time lubing up a toy and gently warming myself up with fingers or a smaller dildo, or penetration can be uncomfortable. For those times when I just can’t be bothered putting in the effort, the Acute is there.

It’s small, so it’s not always 100% satisfying, but the size-to-stimulation ratio is pretty impressive. That little curve goes straight for my G-spot and is surprisingly satisfying. This dildo will remain a bedside staple for me because it’s so, so good and so, so easy.

5. Tantus Tsunami (review)

I have a hard time even forming sentences to describe how good this dildo feels.

Ridges. Curve. G-spot. A-spot. Thrust. Smooth. Bumpy. PINK. VERY PINK.

See? Just trust me, even in my incoherence: it’s good.

What are your must-have penetrative toys?

    Dear GJ,

    first of all, I like your new website!
    I find that the most important feature on a sex toy reviewers website is
    the possibility to search 🙂 I always look for different reviews of a
    single toy. So jeej!
    I also really like your “Blogs I love”.

    My must-have penetrative toys.

    1. Tantus Tsunami… gave me my first squirt EVER! Also thanks to
    Deborah Sundahl who wrote a very informative (though she should leave
    the flower illustrations out of it) book on the subject.

    2. Jopen comet wand. Second squirt :’-)

    3. Some ugly realistic (I dunno what brand) dildo I only use with a
    condom, but feels really good. Though I’m saving up for a Tantus Max 02.

    4. A double dildo (also very cheap and ugly, condoms-condoms-condoms) I
    use with my lover. Want to replace it…but nevertheless the whole
    double-dildo-fucking-each-other is fantastic.

    I live in Amsterdam so I’ve lot’s of (women friendly) stores around, but sadly Vixen and Tantus are from the U.S.A. so I always have to pay import taxes witch
    makes them…less affordable, or in case of Vixen, really expensive. And
    so, though I really crave for a Vixskin dildo, they are still beyond my
    budget I’m afraid…

    Anyway, thank you for all the work you do to help us through the jungle sex toys. Hooray!



    • Hi Alix! Glad you’re digging my new site. And it’s so awesome that you’re reading from all the way in Amsterdam!
