Yesterday, I told you that I would tell you about this stimulator I found. Yes, yes, I know, technically speaking, it's a dildo. There's nothing wrong with that. However, for some reason, the word "dildo" just sounds...wrong to me. It always has. Obviously, I know much more explicit words that I don't bat an eye at. But for some reason that word, and only that word, bugs the heck out of me. Go figure. But, if you want to be technical, yes. It's a dildo.
Pink Flowered Friend by Don Wands.
A little bit about it: The Pink Flowered Friend is a glass G-spot stimulator. It is 7.5 inches long, around 4 inches in circumference at it's widest point and 3 3/8 inches around the shaft (by my measurements). It's slightly curved to provide G-spot stimulation and can be used for temperature play by immersing it in warm or cold water, if you'd like. Cleaning is easy with just soap and water. You could put it through the dishwasher, if you'd like, but I never do that. Just soap and water for me.
A word of caution to those that are not used to firm toys: this being solid glass, it has no give to it at all. I know, it sounds obvious, but I feel the need to say it. You can bruise or make yourself sore if you are not careful with this toy. Keep that in mind.
What I loved: Glass is so easy to take care of...as long as you don't drop it. But I think this material is actually closer to something like pyrex, so it's a bit harder to break, but certainly not impossible.
I, like many other women, really need firm pressure/firm rubbing to get decent stimulation from my G-spot. The curve of the Flowered friend is great for that. Stimulation without contorting my wrist! Plus, it's textured for those that like textured toys, without it being over the top.
If you look at it, the Flowered Friend is really double ended. It's completely smooth and non-porous, so either end could be used, depending on what your mood is. I love that.
And, it's pretty. I mean, really. I'm not crazy about pink in general, but this is a nice soft pink, not a bright bubblegum pink. And the flower in the rounded end is really cute, even if the colors clash with the main pink color.
What I didn't: I really wish that the curve was just a little bit more pronounced. Don't get me wrong, the curve is good. But it's not great. If it had just a slight bit more of a curve, it would be more comfortable for me when I use it. If my husband was using it on me, it probably wouldn't be a problem at all.
The nubbed textures on the shaft feel so pronounced to my fingers, but in practice, I don't even notice them. I thought I would get a lot of stimulation from those nubs, but really, hardly anything at all. A more sensitive person will probably be able to feel them, though.
Final thought: I like the Flowered Friend. It's not my favorite toy in the box, nor is it even my favorite glass toy, bit it is a nice one. I'm glad I have it and will use it, but probably not as often as my others that have more of a curve to them, and so make it more comfortable for me to use. But that's me.
Despite this one drawback for me, I would have to say that I do, in fact, recommend this toy. It's a subtly classy one, so those that are new to toys, or enjoy aesthetically pleasing toys, may like the look of the Flowered Friend. It's not so big that it's intimidating, nor is it too small to bring stimulation. It's a nice in-between.
