The RP Project #23: Abbey's Secret Ale SIAC

The Abbey's Secret Ale was another of the SIAC v2.0 set sold by ILF during 2009. This SIAC has a mouth orifice and the texture is a scaled down speed bump texture. Unfortunately, this SIAC was retired from the market back in April 2010, but maybe is still around in some retailers. So, lets review it.

First Impressions:
As with all SIACs the first thing that caught your attention was the can form and the label. In this case, Abbey's label was the most stylish (next to the Succu-Dry). When I removed the top cap for the first time, I was impressed on how realistic the small mouth looked (full size FL mouths look like they come from Jabba the Hut). This mouth, on the other hand, looks inviting and sexy. The first impression when inserting a finger inside it was "This thing is tight". And tight it is...

Intensity (5 / 5)
The mini speed bump is one of those "hit or miss" textures; sometimes it feels great, at others it is kind of "so-so". Like the mini Vortex, Abbey didn't do it for me the first few times I used it. Originally, it took me like 5 uses to finally decipher this SIAC. Once I went slowly with it, Abbey's intensity showed up. The bumps made themselves present pressing around my dick with every stroke. During this review, Abbey did her work every single time making me gasping for air after every ejaculation.

Tightness (5/5)
Lets simply summarize: It's a SIAC. The mouth entrance is more flexible than the Lotus Lager or the Spread Eagle, but still the canal is tight.

Realism (2/5)
There is no way the Abbey Secret Ale feels realistic. It feels good, but not close to oral sex.   

Versatility (5/5)
Hands free sessions with a mouth SIAC require more imagination than with vaginal or ass orifices, but the Abbey wins a perfect score in the versatility category. It feels great either by stroking or hands free.

Lubricant use (5/5)

Once lubed, Abbey didn't require any extra lube or re-wetting. Perfect score in this category.

Use (5/5)
No issues using the SIAC. No extreme, annoying noises or caving.

Hygiene (5 / 5)
Like Fleshlights, SIACs only need to be flushed with water.

Drying (5/5)
Abbey dried up nicely after 24 hours left hanging on open air outside the case.

Maintenance (5 / 5)

No special maintenance required so far besides a regular corn starching when stored for a few weeks.

Tear and wear (5/5)

No noticeable tear and wear on this SIAC after a year of use.

Total score: 47 / 50

It is a shame that ILF discontinued this SIAC model. It is one of my favorite toys when I want an intense session that forces me to take it easy to last for more than 10 minutes. The closes thing ILF has to the mini Speed Bump is the mini STU available as Grape Jack Soda from their Fleshjack line. 

FYI:
The visual stimuli for these sessions was provided by the ultra fine Asa Akira and her feature Asa Akira Is Insatiable. That opening scene in the adult cinema is one of the hottest I had ever seen!

The RP Project #22: TENGA's Flip Hole White

Back in October, I reviewed the Tenga Flip Hole Black  - one of the most stylish sex toys in the market. Today, its sister Tenga Flip Hole White get the same treatment. 

First Impressions:
Like the Black version, the  Tenga Flip Hole White (FHW) doesn't like a sex toy at all. In fact, the FHW looks more as an accessory for your iPod or, if you have a Mac, like any of its accessories. Like the FHB, it has no vaginal entrance, no decals, nothing shouting "pervert" aloud like other sex toys. Again, you can leave the Flip Hole in plain sight and while it will make some people curious, most people will believe you if you tell them it is part of your electronic gadgetry collection.

Unlike the Black, the FHW internal structures are rounder and even feel softer to the touch. Compared to the Black, the FHW is a lot less intimidating when you open the clam design. That said, lets go to the review...

Intensity (5 / 5)
The FHW looks less intimidating than the FHB, but still looks intense - and as the FHB, it delivers. You feel the texture immediately, slightly rough at first, but once the lube begins to work, the material seems to melt around your penis. You better be ready for many different sensations, all of them good. It is less intense than the FHB at first, but pleasure builds fast after a few strokes, requiring some restrain from you if you want the session to last a few minutes. As with the FHB, rotating the FHW provides different types of sensations depending on what part of your penis is more sensitive.  Orgasms are intense, specially if you had been stroking slowly, keeping the pace to a minimum.

Tightness (5/5)
Lets repeat what I wrote about the FHB:
The FHB entrance is tight - really tight. With a mere 4.5 inches girth I had some problems entering this toy and looking at the entrance while doing it, I was often afraid the whole thing was going to rip apart. Once inside it felt just right.
For those who likes suction / extra tightness, the FHB has the now famous three suction discs that allow the user to vary the tightness at either the base, the shaft or the head areas with one hand. Personally, since I liked the regular suction of the toy, I didn't use these discs. Anyhow, it's good to know they are there... 
 

Change FHW for FHB, and you got my review for the White. 

Realism (3/5)
  Although the FHW is not designed to simulate any type of real sex, it can feel at times like a hard blowjob. You need to work around the lube quantity and the air suction levels, but once you obtain them, the reward is adequate. 

Versatility (5/5)
Like the FHB, the FHW worked really well in the hands free sessions, something I didn't expect because it was designed more for stroking. Stroking provides a sharper, more intense session while the hands free method provided slightly longer sessions with a better orgasm build. Since this toy is full of textures, any single variation in angle or position made the FHW a new experience during the sessions making this toy an extremely versatile one.

Lubricant use (5/5)

Once lubed, the FHW didn't require any extra lube or re-wetting. Perfect score in this category.

Use (3/5)
Again, the FHs have two flaws in this category: setup and noise. Due to its clamshell design, the base has a triple duty as base, lock and drying stand. After lubing it, you need to slide the base in the opposite to lock both halves in position. Doing this while hard and wanting to do it fast so could fuck the toy is almost a torture because I missed the positioning so many times that it was frustrating. Often I was almost limp again after struggling to place the damn thing in place.
The other flaw (from my perspective) is the slurping and farting noises this toy makes while using it. Slurping noises add a little bit to the excitement given that you don't have a roommate or paper thin walls on your room. The farting noises are a totally different issue. I found them to be distracting and even annoying. At least, the noise is almost non noticeable during hands free sessions, but really distracting during stroking sessions.

Hygiene (4 / 5)
One of the major selling points of the FH series is that they are supposed easy to clean. Well, I prefer cleaning a Fleshlight over cleaning the FHB and FHW. Regardless of the Fleshlight design, they are pretty easy to clean - just open a faucet with cold or warm water and allow the running water to flush the interior. With the FH series, you open the toy, put it under the faucet... and run your fingers through it to clean your spunk. The FHW is easier to clean than the FHB thanks to its rounded structures, but still semen stays trapped between them - specially the ending orbs. Running water alone can't clean it effectively, so I ended doing some scrubbing with my fingers to remove all the semen from it. With 95% of my Fleshies I don't have to scoop my fluids - a big plus.

Drying (4/5)
The FH series design allows for fast and easy drying. Surprisingly, the material dries pretty quickly considering the maze of structures inside it. The only drawback is that while cleaning some water can get trapped between the silicone and the plastic case, requiring the user to be careful before storing to avoid mold. 

Maintenance (5 / 5)

No special maintenance required so far.

Tear and wear (4/5)

When you use a brand new FH, you will notice some tear at the entrance. Since I had the FHW since last summer, I worry more about wear now than tearing (the FH series is designed to be enjoyable for around 50 sessions, although many users have squeezed three and even four times more sessions). After the 5 use run, I found some minor tears on the entrance and some wear on the discs areas, but no major effect noticed on the experience. 

Total score: 43 / 50

All aspects considered, the FHW is a good toy investment given that your penis is not too thick. If you have a girth above 5.5 inches, prepare for a tight ride and some major wear and tear on the toy's entrance and body.

TENGA products are available at various resellers, but I would recommend to buy your Japanese toys from Toy Demon. I buy my Asian toys from them and their service is excellent.

FYI:
The visual stimuli for these sessions was provided by some Japanese bondage films I have in my ever growing porn collection.

The RP Project #21: Fleshlight Super Tight (ICE Stealth and Mouth Pink)

First Impressions:
Let's be clear about this one: I have two of these sleeves. I first bought the ICE Stealth and got to love the texture. Since ILF discontinued the Ice Series (now its just the ICE Crystal), I decided to buy a pink ST in December to use the ICE with the girlfriend. The pink one has a mouth orifice (the regular, Jabba the Hut mouth), but it feels great anyway.
Now, the Super Tight texture is basically a tighter Original - a smooth texture with half the diameter of the Original. That helps to place a little bit more material around your cock and snug the bastard a little bit better than the Original.

Intensity (3 / 5)
Like the Original, the Super Tight (ST from now on), gives a warm feedback on your cock when you penetrate it. The sleeve is not intense, it is pleasurable. It welcomes you and caress your cock constantly, allowing you to build up a good and satisfactory orgasm. Great for a long ride.

Tightness (4/5)
Being based on a 1/2 inch diameter canal, the ST is just right for most girths. It grabs your penis nice enough to make you feel the texture while keeping comfortable. Varying the end cap tightness did not change the sensations a lot, but they were enough to make the sessions fun.

Realism (4/5)
Like the Original and the WW, the ST feels surprisingly real - much more than expected. It felt closer to a real pussy when I used it with the tightened end cap during hands free sessions.

Versatility (5/5)
Hands free, stroker, seating down - It doesn't matter how I used it, the ST felt great in all positions. That's the reason it is a classic texture!

Lubricant use (4/5)
As a smooth texture, the ST can be a lube guzzler. The ST required some lube reapplication / re-wetting every 20 minutes or so.

Use (4/5)
No complaints during use for the Pink Mouth. ICE sleeves on the other hand tend to be really sticky, so they require regular lube application on the orifice to avoid sticking pubic hair on the orifice surface.

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 ST dried pretty well overnight even in extremely cold weather.

Maintenance (5 / 5)
Just a periodical cornstarch rubbing for cleaning and to avoid stickiness. 

Tear and wear (5/5)
No tear and wear noticed after completing the evaluation periods.

Total score: 44 / 50

The Super Tight is one of those sleeves that can be boring if you are looking for intense, fast orgasm. It really does a great job as a "fluffler" if you are masturbating different toys or if you are getting playing around with your partner. The ICE textures excel in that playing / foreplay part since your partner can see the penis and its reactions while "fucking". The great thing about smooth textures is that when your penis is touched by something else, you feel that touch 20 times better than before.

You can buy this toy from Fleshlight.com

FYI: Since these sessions were long (between 30 and 60 minutes each), I only used my picture collections as an stimulus.

Resolutions for 2011

Every year, I make up some resolutions which I usually break during the first week of the year. That's why I decided to make my New Year's Resolutions AFTER the first week of the year (very clever, no?). So, these are Casquetero's resolutions for this year:

1. Complete the RP Project. It's not a difficult task, but since I made the list of toys back in November, I added a few more toys to my collection. Eleven in total... There is a lot of masturbation to do to finish the RP project!

2. Stop any sex related buy until June 2011. Since Black Friday I added seven new FLs (ICE Crystal, Mouth ST, Pussy UT, Mouth SB, Torrid, 69 Caliber, and Twista),  four Japanese toys (Innocent Sister, 17 Evo, Meiki Suzuki, and Meiki Tsuboni), a prostate massager (Aneros MGX), and just for the new year, a Venus R love doll for more interesting hands free sessions. Way too much money spent on sex during 2010, so its time to enjoy the toys and avoid adding more to the collection for a while. (Except there are collectibles during that time...)

3. Stop buying / downloading porn until enjoying my current collection. Being honest here, I just counted my porn DVD collection and it is sick - about 300 DVDs! With the average DVD running for 2 hours, we are talking about 600 hours of porn or more than 700 sessions. That's way more than I need to masturbate through the whole year without repeating a scene. And that doesn't include the GBs of naked ladies photos I have. No new porn until I have watched each scene and every photo in my collection!

4. Limit masturbation to enjoy life. Hey, life is not only sex and masturbation. I need to enjoy life a little bit more.

Those are my resolutions for this year - now, lets keep them...

The RP Project #20: Wonder Wave Fleshlight

First Impressions:
The Wonder Wave texture is one of the classic Fleshlight textures - it was the first revision of the Original - and it is still one of the favorites of the user forum. After reading review after review of satisfied users, I pulled the trigger and bought it. The texture is simple: a smooth texture in a canal 1/2 inch in diameter with equally spaced ribs (about 1 inch apart). At first impression, the Wonder Wave (WW) seems to be a gentle texture focused on keeping your cock interested but not too much intense.

Intensity (4 / 5)
The WW gives immediate feedback with its smoothness engulfing your cock, then  as you penetrate the sleeve, the ridges or ribs make their presence shown. This texture is as soft or intense as you want it to be. Go slowly, and it builds up orgasms that will begin in your toes. Go faster and the orgasm will hit you like a ton of bricks, hard and unexpected. The texture by itself is not intense, but the orgasms it produces can be the most satisfactory you can have with an artificial pussy.

Tightness (4/5)
Being based on a 1/2 inch diameter canal, the WW is just right for most girths. It grabs your penis nice enough to make you feel the variation in texture while keeping comfortable. I found that with the end cap fully tightened, the WW feels smoother on the shaft and sensations are stronger on the penis' head. Loosening the end cap produces the sensations to be even all over the penis.

Realism (4/5)
The WW feels surprisingly real - much more than expected. It felt closer to a real pussy when I used it with the tightened end cap during hands free sessions.

Versatility (5/5)
Hands free, stroker, seating down - It doesn't matter how I used it, the WW felt great in all positions. That's the reason it is a classic texture!

Lubricant use (5/5)
Once lubed, the WW retains lube really well, needing some re-application only when sessions are longer than 30 minutes.

Use (5/5)
No complaints during use.

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 WW dried pretty well overnight even in extremely cold weather.

Maintenance (5 / 5)
Just a periodical cornstarch rubbing for cleaning and to avoid stickiness. 

Tear and wear (5/5)
No tear and wear noticed after completing the evaluation periods.

Total score: 47 / 50

The Wonder Wave has stayed as a classic Fleshlight texture for a single reason: it is great! It is one of those textures you underestimate until you use it a few times. Highly recommended.

You can buy this toy from Fleshlight.com

FYI: I didn't use any visual stimuli during this review. Most of my WW sessions were during my Holidays vacations, giving me a chance to relax and enjoy the sessions.
