If you’ve ever had to sleep in the wet spot you already know the usefulness of having something like the Fascinator Throe.
The Throe is designed to be put down to catch any juices, lube, cream, food, wax, or anything else that you wouldn’t want getting on your sheets and creating a mess. It fits easily over a good portion of any bed (or the entirety of our futon) and can easily be pushed aside to get rid of the wet spot effectively turning a potentially uncomfortable afterglow into a very pleasant one.
Liberator has two different types of fabric the Throe can come in, microfiber or shag, and since I wanted the leopard print Throe as I adore leopard print I got the microfiber one. The other side of the throe is black satin, and between the two layers there is a third layer of nylon which serves as a moisture barrier between the two softer and luxurious fabrics.
While the fabric of the throe doesn’t soak up whatever liquids get on it the nylon barrier does not let any of the fluids get through to the bed, couch, floor, or other surface below. It really does work and keep the surface below it dry regardless of what gets on it, it’s lasted through quite a few vigorous fuck sessions with one to three participants.
The only downfall of the Throe is that it has a tendency to move around and can move out of the wet spot danger zone easily during a great fucking session if you’re not paying attention to it. While it’s more tempting to lay on the soft microfiber side of the Throe because it’s so soft and smooth it is much better to have the satin side up and microfiber down.
With the microfiber down it is much less likely to move around that way, especially if you have satin sheets like we do, though it does still move around a little. We often have to move it around mid-coitus to make sure it will catch the right stuff, but the momentary shifting of the Throe doesn’t really take anything away from the experience, especially to people who have four cats and are used to being interrupted.
The microfiber is the same material that is on Liberator’s shapes including the Ramp and so putting it microfiber to microfiber down underneath the Ramp offers a little more protection and means the Ramp won’t slide around either (though it rarely does).
The biggest issue for us has been simply remembering to put it down beforehand and/or during, so the Throe has become a permanent part of our bed, but even so there has been many a time when the Throe just didn’t get in the right spot.
Material: Microfiber (leopard), satin (black), and a nylon “moisture barrier” in between.
