Review: Ophoria Rapture No. 5

I’ve had the Ophoria Rapture No. 5 for a while now and, honestly, I don’t have a lot to say about it. It’s really a case of form follows function, in a good way. It didn’t “wow” me. It doesn’t have any fancy features that have never been seen before, it doesn’t go above and beyond the call of duty, it’s just well-made, does what it’s supposed to do and does it well, and is fairly decently priced for a top-quality silicone toy.

Rapture No. 5 is made of completely body-safe platinum silicone01, Ophoria’s own blend. It’s fairly silky with minimal finger-drag and pleasing to touch. It’s quite hard for silicone, with little give when you squeeze it. It’s made especially for anal use but can be used vaginally as well, and works well for both. I would say it is better anally, but I love graduated bulbs on anal toys since it goes along so well with the way that the anal muscles work. Makes sense, since it’s basically a dildo version of a set of anal beads.

It’s about average length and a little over average thickness at it’s thickest, but the first bulb starts at half of the thickness of the last. I would say most of the time I use it I don’t put it all the way in, preferring to gently thrust with it over inserting it and leaving it there since it doesn’t have a decent neck on it. It’s definitely made for thrusting.

One thing that does bring it above most other anal toys like it is the handle. Sported by the Beyond No. 3 also made by Ophoria, Njoy Pfun Plug, LELO Bob, and the LELO Insignia line, among others, the cut-out handle is becoming somewhat popular, especially among luxury toy makers. It is a wonderful feature, and I highly recommend this type of handle on a toy to many others, unless you’re specifically looking for a harness-compatible product. This style of handle makes toys easier to grip and maneuver overall, making them great products to own.

The Rapture No. 5 reminds me a lot of the Pleasure No. 6 in that they’re both average toys made of quality silicone and decently priced. They’re solidly made, pleasing to the eye, and does the job they’re made to do. I simply have no bad words to say about them.

Luckily not every toy needs a “wow” factor. In fact many of the fancy new tech savvy toys that are out there are expensive and don’t do all that they should, making the solidly good toys that much better than those that fluctuate between awesome features and little performance. Plus, Ophoria toys are pretty, if not wowomgawesome.

Much thanks to Ophoria for sending me their Rapture No. 5 to review!

Review: Sh! Whirly Girly 2 Glow


The Whirly Girly 2

Sh! makes a whole mess of Whirly Girly dildos in slightly different shapes and sizes. They are all 100% silicone and completely body-safe and all have adorable heart-shaped bases which are excellent to grip or in a strap-on harness. As far as dildos go, the Whirly Girly 2 is mostly unremarkable, it’s relatively short and thin (made especially for anal penetration), slightly curved, and has swirls coming up around it kind of like a candy cane. The thing that sets it apart from other dildos of it’s kind is one very special power. It glows in the dark!

That’s right, this is a 100% silicone dildo that glows in the dark! I cannot express how excited I was when I learned about this. If you don’t like this style but are as excited as I am at the idea of a glow in the dark dildo Sh! also makes the Glow Cupid 3 which is longer and thicker.


I couldn’t myself get a good picture of it’s glowing abilities, so this will have to do.

Like most glow in the dark things it needs to be around a light source prior to glowing, so if you keep it in a toybox or something similar which does not often see light it won’t glow right away. When it’s sufficiently charged it’s really quite bright in a dark room, very easy to see, and every inch of it glows. Now I want a second one to have glow-in-the-dark dildo (lightsaber) duels. There is all sorts of fun that a glow in the dark dildo can have that a regular dildo cannot.

Aside from the glow in the dark aspect of the Whirly Girly 2 is mostly just a good solid anal dildo and is excellent for use in a harness. The heart-shaped base isn’t as thick as some bases but it’s fairly big and the shape of it is easily seen around an o-ring. The silicone itself is about medium-firm and slippery smooth, easy to use with just a little bit of lube (water-based only). Since it is fairly thin it might not be very satisfying vaginally for some, but it’s perfect for an anal beginner or working up to larger toys.

The inner geek in me is just giddy about this toy. I love it. While it’s not the most exciting shape and size to me it makes up for it with it’s glowing abilities.


The heart-shaped base!

Review: Nexus Gyro

I keep wanting to pronounce this toy yee-ro like the delicious Greek sandwich, but it is actually named after the action you’re supposed to be able to do with it, gyrate, so it is supposed to be pronounced jy-ro. This makes much more sense, of course, but isn’t nearly as amusing.

Like all Nexus toys Gyro is made from 100% medical-grade silicone and is an amazingly soft and silky silicone like Nexus seems to be known for (or at least is known for in my mind). Their silicone is different than that I have encountered in any other company. Since it is silicone you can share it between partners and orifices as long as you sterilize it between them (going from vagina to anus is okay but do not go the other way around without sterilizing it first!), see care instructions below for further details.

The Gyro is meant to be a hands-free prostate stimulator, though works wonderfully as a g-spot stimulator on a female body as well. Nexus even has a neat how to use the Nexus Gyro guide on their site in case you’re not quite sure. Basically, it has a very firm round base which enables you to sit on it and rock your pelvis around to get more than the usual insertable stimulation without having to use a hand to thrust it inside of yourself.

How does it work? Very well, actually. The delightful curve of the toy hits just the right internal places. I’ve used it on both Onyx and myself, both thrusting and rocking and it is quite exceptional. I don’t think I’ve encountered any other dildos that are made for this kind of hands-free gyrating stimulation.

It is just slightly over average thickness and shorter than a lot of other toys because it is made to be inserted and rocked upon rather than thrusted, though it can be thrusted with as well. For those size queens who enjoy thicker and/or longer toys Nexus also makes the Gyro Extreme.

Since the base is so round and bulbous (about 2 1/2 inches in diameter! Not to be inserted) it is uncomfortable to keep it inserted or wear it for very long periods of time. Nexus also has considered the needs of those who would prefer to use something like the Gyro as a plug and created Silo.

A big thank you to Nexus for providing me with the Gyro!
