The RP Project #14: Spread Eagle SIAC (Mini Vortex)

As I mentioned in my last post, I almost discarded this Sex In A Can (SIAC) because I didn't like how it felt. The issue was the Vortex texture: It has a longer break-in period than any other texture, so the first 5 to 12 sessions won't feel as good as they should. After the number of sessions, I began to feel the texture and I'm glad I kept this SIAC... especially since ILF discontinued its production in April of 2010.

First Impressions:
As you can see in the accompanying photo (courtesy from www.fleshjack.com.tw), the Spread Eagle main characteristic was the pussy mold. The orifice was a pussy with big lips, unlike the typical Fleshlight / SIAC lady orifice which is a thin, "younger" looking orifice. Inside, you encountered a scaled down version of the Vortex texture with the same variation in diameter but made more intense thanks to the SIAC's reduced scale.  What I expected the first time I saw this texture? I expected a visit to heaven... and I can say I've been there a few times since breaking this texture.

Intensity (5 / 5)
As with its bigger "sister", the mini Vortex is intense, but not overwhelmingly. Just like the full size version, it provides immediate feedback, but here the innate tightness of the SIACs make the texture much more present - even when removing the endcap completely. Pleasure hits you hard after a few minutes of use and keeps you on the edge for minutes before you have no other option that surrender to a toe-curling orgasm. Just take the orgasms with the Vortex and multiply the intensity by three...

Tightness (5/5)
As all SIACs, the Spread Eagle is tight. Unlike the Lotus Lager, the mini vortex didn't require to be fully erected to use it. Once you are 3/4 erect you can penetrate the Eagle and after a few short strokes you will be steel hard. One thing I found during use was that using the top cap on the cap on the bottom gives a suction perfect for stroking and fucking unlike the shorter end cap that creates a vacuum effect when fully tightened.

Realism (4/5)
Using the mini Vortex is like penetrating a young, inexperienced woman in her early 20's. Everything I wrote about the Vortex in this category applies to its mini version with the exception of the suction. To feel like vaginal sex, you need to remove the end cap completely. To replicate oral sex, I had to use the larger cap with only 1/4 tightened in. Any more tightening, and the SIAC risks becoming a vise on the penis. Again, 4 out of 5 in realism.

Versatility (5/5)
As its larger sister, the Spread Eagle is a versatile sleeve: it can be used hands free, is a perfect stroker giving a range of realistic sensations, and you can pound it hard either way without problems. If you want longer sessions, add a thicker lube (or "over lube") and don't use the end cap at all. If intensity is the name of the game, use a thinner lube and use the sleeve with the larger end cap about half tightened.

Lubricant use (5/5)
The min Vortex retains lube perfectly, especially for short to mid length sessions (20 - 45 minutes). Again, depending on the sensations I wanted to experience, I added more lube to replicate one thing or another but the sleeve was good with the standard original quantity of lube.

Use (4/5)
The only complain I have about the Vortex is the long "break-in" period. If the sleeve had a lower "break-in" curve, it would be perfect.

Hygiene (5 / 5)
As most Fleshlights, just place it under the faucet and flush between 30 and 60 seconds on both ends with running water. Not too difficult to clean.

Drying (5/5)
The mini Vortex dried pretty well overnight. It is good to mention that with the current colder weather, the sleeves takes more to dry, since air is colder and my apartment tends to remain humid during the day. That is until my landlord begins to provide steam later in the season.

Maintenance (5 / 5)
No special maintenance required for long term storage besides some corn starch. 

Tear and wear (5/5)
No tear and wear noticed after completing the evaluation periods.
 
Total score: 48 / 50

From almost trashed to one of the best sleeves. It is a shame that ILF decided to stop doing this SIAC, but I believe this is not the last time it is going to be offered. Hopefully ILF make it available in the future as a special edition or as part of a combo texture.

As established in the captions, you could buy this toy from Fleshlight.com

FYI: For visual stimulus for this review, I used Teens Love Cum Volume 3 from Devils Films and a collection of old Lolita video clips and photos from my collection.

The RP Project #13: Lady Vortex Fleshlight

When you begin to use male sex toys, one of the best places to get information about them is the vendors' public forum where users share their personal experiences with their toys. For example, both ILF / Fleshligh and Toy Demon have their forums where you can interact with fellow masturbators (Fleshlight forurm, Toy Demon forum). Why I mention this in this entry? Because if it wasn't for the Fleshlight user forum I would never bought the Vortex FL. My first Fleshlight purchase included the now discontinued mini-Vortex and honestly, I hated that texture at the time. Reading the forum let me know that the Vortex texture had a long "break-in" period (meaning I had to use the fucker more to begin to enjoy it). After the 12th use, I really began to enjoy the mini-Vortex, prompting me to finally get the full sized version months ago. Was it a good buy? Lets see...



First Impressions:

The Vortex Fleshlight (Photo property of ILF / Fleshlight)
The vortex is a combo texture were you have more than one thing stimulating your penis. You have both the spiraled sections and the varying diameter canal to squeeze your penis during use. When I looked at it for the first time, it promised an intense experience and with the rating of 4 out of 5 from ILF, I was expecting a different and unique orgasm.

Intensity (5 / 5)
I would say that the Vortex is intense, but not overwhelmingly. It provides immediate feedback - I felt the spirals right away during the first use of this evaluation (I had "broken" the texture months ago), and the canal variation created a subtle suction that was more than pleasurable. The real intensity of this texture is how it keeps you on the edge. During the evaluation sessions, the Vortex kept me in a state of  "almost there" for periods between 10 and 15 minutes, sometimes taking my breath away before a toe clenching orgasm. Orgasms with the Vortex are not earth-shaking or ball-draining, but are good enough to justify a perfect score.

Tightness (4/5)
The Vortex is a perfect texture to penetrate at half-mast. It is tight enough to allow growth but never grips the penis in a way that you feel you are into a vacuum cleaner. If you are looking for constant pressure, this is not a sleeve for you, since the chambers vary in diameter, tightening only in some sections.

Realism (4/5)
The Vortex is probably the most realistic texture from ILF. Depending on the tightness of the end cap and the lube you use, it feels close to either a blow job or as vaginal sex. Lubed and with the end cap fully tightened, it felt very close to vaginal sex - the spirals are less pronounced and the canal variation felt like a vagina contracting on my penis. With the end cap lose 3/4 of the way, the spirals come to life and intensity ramps up, feeling as teeth softly biting. Add a little bit of extra lube at that point and you have a good replica of a blow job.  It feels close enough to get 4 points out of 5.

Versatility (5/5)
The Vortex is a versatile sleeve: it can be used hands free, is a perfect stroker giving a range of realistic sensations, and you can pound it hard either way without problems. You want longer sessions, add a thicker lube (or "over lube") and tighten the end cap all the way. You want intensity, use a thinner lube and use the sleeve without the end cap and you'll be trashing your bed or chair after a few minutes. What else can you ask from an artificial  vagina?

Lubricant use (5/5)
The Vortex retains lube perfectly, especially for short to mid length sessions (20 - 45 minutes). Again, depending on the sensations I wanted to experience, I added more lube to replicate one thing or another but the sleeve was good with the standard original quantity of lube.

Use (4/5)
The only complain I have about the Vortex is the long "break-in" period. As I wrote on the introduction, I hated the mini-Vortex because it didn't feel right the first time I used it - what happened to me with the mini-Vortex had happened to a lot of Fleshlight users with the Vortex. You use it once and you feel frustrated by it - it makes you cum, but there is something missing. You find that "something missing" after a few more uses (twelve uses on my case) and then you realize how good the texture is. The "break" period is different for everyone, but it is at least 5 uses based on the FL forum comments. If the sleeve had a lower "break-in" curve, it would be perfect.

Hygiene (5 / 5)
As most Fleshlights, just place it under the faucet and flush between 30 and 60 seconds on both ends with running water. Not too difficult to clean.

Drying (5/5)
The Vortex dried pretty well overnight. It is good to mention that with the current colder weather, the sleeves takes more to dry, since air is colder and my apartment tends to remain humid during the day. That is until my landlord begins to provide steam later in the season.

Maintenance (5 / 5)
No special maintenance required for long term storage besides some corn starch. 

Tear and wear (5/5)
No tear and wear noticed after completing the evaluation periods.
 
Total score: 47 / 50

If you are considering a "classic" Fleshlight for either yourself or as a gift, the Vortex is a great choice. It is a pleasurable sleeve, versatile, and as said before, maybe the most realistic feeling texture I had reviewed from the ones available from Fleshlight. Just be aware of the "break-in" period / learning curve this texture has because the first few uses are frustrating.

As established in the captions, you can buy this toy from Fleshlight.com.

FYI: I barely used visual stimuli for these sessions. During the first two sessions I used "sleeping" / fake rape clips I downloaded from XVideos.com, then for the remaining three sessions I went with personal fantasies. Maybe I will share them here later or publish them at Literotica.com.

The RP Project #12: Meiki Zhang Xiao Yu

First Impressions:

As I wrote for the Kasuni's review, "What's not to like from Asian women?" This installment of the Rubber Pussy Project deals with a toy considered the Cadillac of Asian sex toys: the Zhang Xiao  Yu Meiki. "Meiki" is a Japanese word meaning "good pussy" and most meiki toys delivers. The Zhang Xiao Yu (or ZXY) looks very interesting - the exterior is a miniature torso reproduction of the Chinese model Zhang Xiao Yu, and unlike other toys, the ZXY has a pink interior thanks to a double layer construction. The exterior layer is a typical Meiki soft material resembling flesh while the interior (the pink part) is a slightly stronger material with the textures to stimulate the penis. At first look, the interior textures are inviting: their shapes look organic, seemingly reproducing a real life vagina. Is the ZXY as good as people say? It is going to hold its ground after being pounded mercilessly or it is going to rip as the mini meiki? With those questions, I began the review of the well known meiki toy.

Intensity (5 / 5)

Something about the meikis that I really like is that their textures are very organic. You feel the textures as soon as you penetrate the toy and the sensations grow during use. The ZXY is not an exception. As I penetrated it, I could feel the different stimulation areas. During use, I not only felt the main stimulating surfaces, but also felt the more subtle realistic textures. The internal material has an almost natural stickiness to it and the moderate suction of the toy made me have five of the most powerful and pleasurable orgasms I had in my life. They built up in an extremely natural way - slowly and constantly until the complete ejaculation.

Tightness (4/5)
The ZXY is not too tight. It allows for liberal movement while providing constant stimulation.

Realism (5/5)
Honestly, penetrating the ZXY felt just like penetrating a juicy, horny vagina. If you are looking for realism, this is the toy to have.

Versatility (5/5)
Originally, I was afraid to use the ZXY hands free. After all, the material on the outer layer is so soft that I felt the pillows' covers would damage it. Well, I should not have feared. The ZXY worked perfectly on the hands free sessions as well on the stroking sessions. The textures felt sharper on the stroking sessions, making me ejaculate in 25 minutes while the hands free sessions lasted about 45 minutes. Adding to its versatility, the ZXY feels totally different when turned to replicate doggy style / missionary / scooping positions. Perfect score in this category.

Lubricant use (5/5)
The ZXY used one third of the lube I normally use with the full size Fleshlights, so it started on the right note. Once lubed, this toy retains lubricant perfectly requiring no additional lube even during longer sessions (45 minutes or more).

Use (5/5)
What can be said about the ZXY during use? It feels great, it uses just a few drops of lube, it is versatile, and it behaves almost as a real vagina. Perfect score in this category...

Hygiene (5 / 5)
At first I was afraid the ZXY would be a nightmare for cleaning. It ended being as easy to clean as my Fleshlights. I placed the toy under the dishwasher faucet and opened the faucet on a mid level pressure. The ZXY basically pushes the water back out, so I was not forced to scoop any semen from the interior of the toy - the flowing water cleaned the inside pretty well although the meiki is a closed ended toy. In addition, the ZXY can be cleaned with soap, allowing for a better hygiene if you are afraid of germs.

Drying (5/5)
Another surprise here. The ZXY dried pretty well overnight without any special drying method. To accelerate the drying, I used a microfiber cloth to avoid lint inside the toy.

Maintenance (5 / 5)
No special maintenance required for long term storage. 

Tear and wear (5/5)
No tear and wear noticed after completing the evaluation periods.
 
Total score: 49 / 50

Lets say this: If you want to have an experience with a masturbation toy, you MUST BUY the ZXY. With the proper care, this pricey Meiki (about $90) is a long-term investment you won't regret. If you are a virgin, this toy will allow you to experience something close to the real thing. If you are an experienced guy, the ZXY helps you to keep that libido under check. Anyway, the ZXY is a must have toy.

As established in the captions, you can buy this toy from ToyDemon.com.

FYI: The visual stimuli for these sessions was provided by Tokyo Hot. Seeing five guys unloading inside a late-20's Japanese woman is something to watch while having sex with a replica of a beautiful mid 20's Chinese woman.

The RP Project #11: Jenna Haze's Maze FLG

First Impressions:

The Jenna Haze Maze Fleshlight is the signature texture for Jenna Haze. This texture is really strange - a series of alternate square nods spaced evenly every inch. The first impression was "How this thing feels?" Squares on my dick? Lets go to the review and rate this unique texture.

Maze texture. Photo property of ILF, Inc / Fleshlight.com

Intensity (4 / 5)
Unlike other textures, the Maze provides immediate feedback on penetration - and never allows you to forget it. The feeling is a constant pressure in alternate areas of your penis, not too much, but enough to remind you that you are fucking a squared nod. I felt that pressure throughout the duration of my sessions, gripping my little friend, squeezing it all the time. The funny thing is that the sensation is kind of gentle - given that enough lube is used and that you don't go crazy on the stroking speed. End cap suction gave different sensations, the tighter the end cap, the more you feel the squeeze but the nods don't feel as pointy / squared as expected. With a looser end cap, the edges of the nods come to life, giving more stimulation to the penis. Orgasm build up is sudden -  I was surprised by them twice during my sessions. Although sudden, orgasms were long and subtle. Imagine fucking a woman and suddenly "Oh shit... I'm cumming!" I expect subtle orgasms with sleeves giving me more control - not with a sleeve that surprises me, therefore 4 out of 5 in intensity.

Tightness (4/5)
The Maze is not too tight - you can say it is tight enough to provide stimulation while still giving space for head expansion during orgasm.

Realism (1/5)
Have you ever fucked a square pussy? If so, then this texture would feel real to you. Personally, I have never penetrated a square textured pussy, so no realism here...

Versatility (5/5)
I used the Maze both hands free and lying on my back and in both positions, sessions were satisfactory. The boxy texture felt sharper during the stroking sessions, while they were way subtler on the hands free ones (mostly due to end cap tightening). Turning the FL 90 degrees around your dick allows to stimulate its sides, making the session feel different. In general, the Maze is versatile and works as a charm in both positions.

Lubricant use (5/5)
Once lubed, this sleeve retains lubricant perfectly requiring no additional lube even during longer sessions (45 minutes or more).

Use (4/5)
The Maze can become boring at times due to the focal pressure on the penis - it is only stimulated where the squares are touching your penis. Unlike other nod based textures where there are nods surrounding the penis, the Maze only works two sides of the penis at once. For longer sessions that became a "meh" sensation that possibly lead to the "surprise" orgasms. Since you get used to the sensations in parts of your penis, you don't get as involved as in with other textures such as the Love Humps or the mini Lotus.

Hygiene (5 / 5)
As most Fleshlights, the Maze is easy to clean - just place it under running water and allow water to clean the interior canal. It is important to notice that the side walls of this FLG are thinner than other FLs, so the user must be careful with the water pressure to avoid punctures to the sleeve.

Drying (5/5)
Pretty fast drying using the wire hanger method.

Maintenance (5 / 5)
No special maintenance required besides cornstarch for long term storage. 

Tear and wear (5/5)
No tear and wear noticed after completing the evaluation periods.
 
Total score: 43 / 50

All factors considered, the Maze is a fun texture to use for short and mid-duration sessions (between 10-25 minutes). I won't recommend the Maze for longer sessions for the fact that it can become boring after a while.
As established in the captions, you can buy this toy from Fleshlight.com

FYI: The visual stimuli for these sessions was provided by Taboo American Style Parts 1-4. Nothing better than some old-school (1985) porn to have sessions with an unique texture. Raven (now in her late 40's) looked the part of a teenager who used her sexuality to achieve whatever she wanted regardless of the consequences. A movie recommended to any one missing porn with acceptable acting and a plot.

More changes to the Rubber Pussy Project...

I know, I know, more changes...
 If you read my review of the Mini Meiki, those toys should be considered single use toys, so I am removing the mini meiki Kotone from the RPP and including the newly acquired Misty Stone's Swallow FLG. The new schedule is as follows:

  1. Lotus Lager Sex In A Can (US) - DONE
  2. Lupe Fuentes Mini Lotus FLG (US) - DONE
  3. Jesse Jane Gauntlet FLG (US) - DONE
  4. Tenga Flip Hole Black (JAP) - DONE
  5. Teagan Presley Love Humps FLG (US) - DONE
  6. Stamina Training Unit FL (US) -  DONE
  7. Ultra Tight  (Butt) FL (US) - DONE 
  8. Mini Meiki Chinatsu - DONE
  9. Jenna Haze Forbidden FLG (US) - DONE
  10. Katsuni Lotus Garden FLG (US) - DONE
  11. Jenna Haze Maze FLG (US) - DONE
  12. Mini Meiki Kotone - REMOVED from RPP
  13. Meiki Zhang Xiao Yu (JAP) - DONE
  14. Vortex FL (US) - DONE
  15. Spread Eagle SIAC (US) - DONE
  16. Alien FL (US) - DONE
  17. Misty Stone's Bump'n'Grind FLG (US) - DONE
  18. Vibro Pink Original Lady FL (US) - DONE
  19. O' Doyles Stout SIAC (US) - DONE
  20. Riley Steele Nipple Alley FLG (US)
  21. Wonder Wave FL (US)
  22. Super Tight Ice FL (US)
  23. Tenga Flip Hole White (JAP)
  24. Abbey's Secret SIAC (US)
  25. Succu Dry SIAC (US)
  26. Stoya Destroya FLG (US)
  27. Super Ribbed FL Butt (US)
  28. Sukit SIAC (US)
  29. Misty Stone's Swallow FLG (US)
  30. Vibro Cyclone FL (US)
  31. Clone Meiki Meguru Kosaka (JAP)
Due to the elimination of the Mini Meiki Kotone and the addition of the Swallow, the ratio between Japanese toys and Fleshlights is almost 10:1. Still, I should be able to provide good reviews. In the case of the Vibro FLs, I will distribute the sessions as follows: HF 3 bullets, HF 2 bullets, HF 1 bullet, HF no bullets, stroker 2 bullets. I am forcing myself to avoid buying additional toys until the end of the RPP (yeah right!).

The RP Project #10: Katsuni's Lotus Garden FLG

Asian women had been always my favorite - petite, delicate appearance, and totally depraved sex hidden under a shy exterior. What not to love about them? When ILF unveiled a FLG featuring Katsuni, I immediately considered it. I love her scenes because she always seems to be 100% in it. Also she is in her 30's - the perfect age for women IMO. Add an insane looking texture like the Lotus Garden and they got me. After following the rules established for the Rubber Pussy Project, lets go with the review:

First Impressions:


The Katsuni Lotus Garden has an entrance molded after the porn star's often abused pussy. The exterior looks inviting, but the interior is a texture with the infamous Lotus' Cervical Node: a structure designed to replicate the feeling of passing a woman's cervix. The Lotus / Mini Lotus became famous because of that node and the Lotus Garden capitalizes on it by being the its only feature. Yes, Katsuni doesn't have one or two of these nodes - all the sleeve are cervical nodes, so you'll be popping cervices as long is your penis.  What to expect? Maybe too much intensity, maybe a boring sensation, but a lot of popping for sure.

Intensity (4 / 5)
This is a difficult sleeve to rate. At initial penetration, the Lotus Garden doesn't give too much feedback. I felt the pop of the cervical nodes as I passed them, but it is not an initial extreme sensation like the ones you feel with the STU. I felt the material rings squeezing my penis, but that sensation modified depending on how I penetrated the sleeve: how deep, fast, hard would provide a completely different sensation. End cap suction played a big influence on intensity - the tighter the end cap, the tighter I felt the nodes pressure around my penis, the looser the end cap, the more overall material I felt around my penis. Any way, the orgasm was intense enough to make me stay inside it a couple of minutes after cumming hard. The lack of immediate feedback lowers the score to 4 out of 5.

Tightness (5/5)
The Garden is tight thanks to the accumulation of material inside the sleeve. When I used it, it felt like I was fucking a mature woman that had been without sex for a while. Something important: Like the Mini Lotus and the Lotus Lager, you need to be fully erect to use this sleeve. Half mast would not allow you to pass the cervical nodes. Once inside it helps to keep you erect, but I experienced a frustrating limping effect when trying to fuck this sleeve without a full erection.

Realism (4/5)
The Garden is not designed to simulate real sex of any kind. But after the third session, when I used it with the end cap almost completely off, I felt I was fucking a mature woman that had been without sex for years. The tightness and the sensation of the material gave that feeling - a sensation that is unique on this sleeve (as far as the RPP testing). That great feeling made me cum hard on the last three sessions, making my mind to have fantasies of some of the MILFs living on my apartment building. 

Versatility (4/5)
The Garden feels more "natural" when using it hands free. While using it lying on my back, the popping of the cervical nodes was too strong on my penis head sometimes even hurting it a little bit (I'm uncut). Hands free sessions were a lot more pleasurable and even fun to use. 

Lubricant use (5/5)
Once lubed, this sleeve retains lubricant perfectly requiring no additional lube even during longer sessions (45 minutes or more).

Use (4/5)
As noted in the tightness section, forget fucking this sleeve if you are not fully erect. I had to abort one session simply because my penis went half mast and I couldn't penetrate the Garden (I finished that session with the Swallow - a texture I have to add to the RPP list). Besides that and the popping noises typical of the Lotus family, there were no  major issues while using the Garden.  

Hygiene (5 / 5)
As most Fleshlights, the Garden is easy to clean - just place it under running water and allow water to clean the interior canal.

Drying (2/5)
This is the Achilles tendon of this sleeve. Due to its exclusive reliance on the cervical node, the Garden takes forever to dry up completely. It takes between 12 and 30 hours to dry completely using the regular hanger method. To speed the drying process, I had to squeeze the texture after cleaning it to remove excess water (the nodes are notorious water traps), and add some alcohol to its interior. Even after that, it took more than 8 hours for the Garden to fully dry.

Maintenance (4 / 5)
Requires alcohol to speed drying process. 

Tear and wear (5/5)
No tear and wear noticed after completing the evaluation periods.
Total score: 42 / 50

Considering all factors, the Garden is a nice sleeve. It is intense and provides unique sensations. Unfortunately, the need to be fully erect to be able to penetrate it and the painfully slow drying time lower the score of an interesting sleeve.

FYI: The visual stimuli for these sessions was provided by Bangkok Suckee Fuckee 5 and Dirty Rotten Mother Fuckers 4 . Loved the maid scene from Dirty Rotten and the last two girls from Suckee Fuckee - specially the pig tailed girl. She looked like Katsuni in her early 20s (with a flatter chest of course).
