Review of California Exotic Novelties Lifelike Long John by Silicone Basics
Since the invention of the vibrator, the classic dildo has declined in popularity over the years. Personally I have never found a situation where a vibrator couldn’t solve the problem better, but like all things traditional, there continues to be an attraction for the basics, especially in the case of the California Exotic Novelties Lifelike Long John by Silicone Basics (approx. $29.99) which I am reviewing here. It is an extremely high quality basic.
Most of the dildo usage I know of is in the realm of one woman loving another. It is extremely useful in three areas where a vibrator would not be. Those would be allowing penetration with one hand, while manually stimulating the clitoris with the other hand; or providing penetration with one hand while (another person) is licking kissing or sucking the clitoris. A third use which is likely a popular one, is to use the dildo in a harness as a strap-on, ass there are many harnesses which will accommodate a dildo such as this one (e.g. is has a flat base which accommodates the user).
As far as this review of the Lifelike Long John by Silicone Basics, it is the ultimate that is achievable with current technology. It has a little bit of flex and a little bit of squeeze so it’s interior feels harder whereas its exterior feels softer and great attention to detail has been paid so that, for example, there are no seams which would cause irritation. Also, its shape is anatomically correct without being grotesque, and you can choose the color you prefer: pink, brown and ivory. We were sent the brown version for review and it looks convincingly like chocolate.
I am listing two caveats and one caution, as with respect to any silicon device used inside the body. The first is that you must be very careful to clean it before use because it is easy to pick up germs. The packaging suggest warm soap and water, but we also like the adult toy cleaners that are on the market and that are available from many sources, including California Exotic Novelties.
The second caution is that the diameter of the erection is rather large, and those women who are “small” and those who have not experienced natural childbirth, may find it a bit uncomfortable, even with a lot of lube on it. Finally, the caution is that with the California Exotic Novelties Lifelike Long John by Silicone Basics, the lubricant must be water-soluble as it is a silicone based adult novelty toy. If you use a non water-soluble lubricant it will degrade the silicone making it even more dangerous health wise.
While this toy might not appeal to everyone, it is certainly a stunning visual that makes for an interesting wedding shower gift, or for the person who has just about everything. Even the hard sided clam-shell packaging could possible be used to make a molded shape or butter sculpture — use your imagination (*do not put hot liquid into the packaging and clean it thoroughly before you use it). *Alison’s note: we put the Long John on display on the desk, but I wouldn’t suggest bringing this to work unless your office is extremely open-minded!
