The Jollies brand Thrust dildo is another in their typical style of oddly-shaped body-friendly dildos. Unlike the Jollie, Jollet and Rider though, the Thrust isn’t thick. While the other Jollies products I’ve tried were very firm sturdy toys, the Thrust is …. floppy. I can hold it by the finger handle and waggle it around like you wouldn’t believe. The silicone itself isn’t squishy or anything, just at the crux of the shape it’s….floppy. And I don’t know why.

I gotta be honest, I couldn’t get into this one. Trying to insert it (and I used lube for once) wasn’t exactly easy. It reminded me a lot of trying to insert a semi-hard penis. It’s the standard silicone that all Jollies toys are, which is a shiny sort of silicone that attracts even more dust/lint/fur than matte silicone. I requested this sex toy to review, from Edenfantasys, because of the largely positive reviews my peers have given it. Kristi and Carrie Ann both liked it. Everybody’s different, and my g-spot responds best to very firm pressure up into it. I couldn’t do that with the Thrust. Since it’s so floppy if I tried to pull up on the handle to give my g-spot more pressure, it just didn’t……well, it didn’t do much.

This Jollies dildo also has a handle with a hole for your finger. Just about the only part of the design on this that I can appreciate is that handle and how it’s curved to come back towards your clit. Dildos that stick straight out of me just don’t work. You could put a bullet in that finger hole instead and turn this into a dual stimulation toy. The upside I guess to the floppiness is that by pressing the handle part to your clit, the dildo part won’t go at a funny angle. If you’re using this with a partner and they want access to your clit, the floppiness means they can move that handle part easily without disturbing the dildo (like would happen with the Jollie)

If you think you’d like to try out this dildo, I suggest you get moving on it, pronto. I am very sad to say that Jollies, the company, is out of business. Jollies produced some really fucking innovative sex toy designs and it’s a shame to see them go. ETA: The company is reprieving itself and sticking around a little while longer! Yay!!

EdenFantasys still has the Thrust in stock as of this writing, in most colors. Many other Jollies brand toys are out of stock on the site, but my beloved Jollie is still there. On EF they listed them in two levels of density of the silicone, Firm and Soft. The one EF still has in stock is listed as the Soft but I don’t think it matters, the company technically did away with the varying densities long ago. It’s just your average silicone dildo, hefty but with a little bit of give.

I’d say about once a week I am asked by my readers to recommend sex toys. Men, women, couples…..specific queries or newbie general “I just want a sex toy” questions, I get them all.

And you know what? I genuinely like doing it. Unless of course the asker gets too personal and creepy – I’m basically your sales associate….not your sex surrogate. Overall though most are nice and respectful requests. I don’t just rattle off a few typical suggestions, though. I gather the data about the person/couple using the items and I  go digging. I love doing this for people, because I like helping and sharing what I’ve learned, but it’s not a quick process so it’s really nice when they go buy the products I recommended via my affiliate links.

Today’s Ask Lilly segment is a recommendation list for a couple who have never used toys before.

The Details:

She: doesn’t orgasm clitorally very well from fingers or tongue and (much like I used to be) tends to have her hubby go for g-spot play during sex. Is probably curious about vibrators for both area

He: is also looking for a toy to initiate himself with. What good is finding your prostate if you don’t have the right tools to make it happy?

They: are looking for items that can be used together, or for just her on her own. Willing to try a few things out in the first go and spend a little more for better products, but without buying only luxury items. They are trying to increase her pleasure level overall and get away from the frustration they both feel when she doesn’t orgasm.

 

G-Spot Recommendations:

  1.  Lelo Ella – I never tried this one because I already loved my Pure Wand, plus I had already figured out that I need the shape of the Pure Wand to work with my arms & body. But Ella is rated very highly by many of my peers.
  2.  Prism V – Amazing g-spot curve, firm pressure, phenominal vibrations and a good price point. I LOVE the Prism V. 
  3.   Njoy Pure Wand  is my holy grail, and works for a lot of people.

 

Clitoral Recommendations:

It’s hard to tell if her preference for g-spot play and inability to have a clit orgasm is because she needs a level of clit stim that fingers and tongues can’t provide, or she’s so overly-sensitive that their attempts are sensory-overload for her. Either way, I’m going for the lower-pitched vibrators because they’re more universally liked. It’s also hard to know if someone prefers pinpoint or broad stimulation. This list will give a little something for everything, and stay right around or under $50.

  1.  Fun Factory Layaspot – This is in case she can’t handle the more powerful vibrations. It has the right pitch and many levels of vibration intensity. It can be intense enough, it’s gotten *me* off, but it’s a diffused sort of vibration, rather than the pinpoint that a bullet can be.
  2.  Doc Johnson Black Magic Bullet – I think that this bullet has the right mixture of being nice to look at, fairly well made, and powerful at the right vibration pitch level. 
  3.  Vibratex Mystic Wand – This provides rumbly power that isn’t as overwhelming or itchy as the Magic Wand, but works for those who like broad stimulation.

 

Prostate Recommendations:

Prostate toys can be used solo or in couple play. Masturbation, blow jobs, even sex – having something in your butt pressing on your prostate will make your toes curl and your whole body sing.

  1. Jopen Lust L13 – Fairly powerful vibrations in the blobby-shaped design that seems to hug the prostate.
  2. The Mood Naughty set – This is an affordable introduction to the blobby-shaped prostate design; it doesn’t vibrate, and instead you need to really clench your butt PC muscles to get it to work, but that clenching happens naturally during sex.
  3. Tantus Prostate Play – This can vibrate, or not, it’s up to you. It’s a good size and a little bigger for more intermediate players.

The market for suction-cup dildos isn’t really very big. Remove from the list anything made of jelly, rubber or cyberskin and it ends up being a mighty small list, indeed. So I was thrilled when I found the SinFive line of sex toys, even more so when I saw that they make two suction-cup dildos. While they’re not silicone, they’re still a very safe material. EdenFantasys lists it as “WTP” which is “completely non-porous, odorless, phthalate and latex free. WTP is tested under strictest European safety standards to be totally safe for the skin and inside the body.” Well that’s pretty damn good! In my eyes the design is a bonus – it’s phallic but not a replica of a penis.

I chose the Pikilo over the Burgono because of size. The SinFive Pikilo is Continue reading »

How do you improve upon the dildo?

You vary the width and give it a strange, but wonderful, shape. A shape that can seem like it was just made to perfectly fill up your cunt. In fact…that’s exactly how it was made! It looks weird and that, combined with the girth, is exactly the reason I wanted these.

I have long coveted various dildos made by Jollies Pleasure Toys. I now own 2 of the 3 that I have craved. I have the Jollie and the Jollet. They’re very similar, identical in size and shape of the insertable part, but the designs past the insertable part are quite different.   And since the design of these dildos is so unique looking, I had to ask. Straight to the lady with the answers! Luze, the CEO of Jollies L.L.C., answered my email questions with amazing promptness. It’s the geek in me, I like knowing the hows and whys. It’s what drives me to bust apart my broken and dead vibrators, to see the innards and how they worked.

jollies

Top is the Jollet, bottom is the Jollie

 

Q. How did you arrive at the design of the dildo? It’s a pretty unique shape and almost seems as if it’s made from a mold of the vaginal canal.

A. You are correct! We molded several females and found that this was the way a woman was created… not the straight “man” type toys out in the market. The Jollie is made to sit in the vaginal canal and the “tail” tapped to create it’s own ‘vibrations’ where they are supposed to be…It is not meant to be an in-and-out type dildo. The handle – where you can stick your finger/thumb in to tap on the ‘tail’ easier – can also be used to hold a bullet.

 

Q. What is the difference between the Vibrating Jollet and standard Jollet? The size seems to be identical – is it just that one has a built-in vibrator and the other can accommodate a bullet?

A. Yes, that is the only difference.  We created the Jollet standard and people wanted more vibration….. so the vibrating Jollet came to life.

Q. The very few reviews I read of the standard Jollet seem to allude to a design fail because the “bumps” down near the base aren’t in a good position to stimulate the clitoris and therefore the vibrations seem unnecessary. It doesn’t seem to me that this design is meant for dual stimulation….is it?

A. Correct. Jollet is a lot like Jollie…. it’s meant to be where it’s supposed to be. We created this one because people thought that the handle “hole” in the Jollie was in the way for cunnilingus, so along came Jollet. We found that the knob type bottom was great when playing with a partner as they can turn this handle and find the ‘perfect’ spot for pleasure.


Q. Is there a particular wireless bullet that is recommended as a “best fit” for the standard Jollet?

A. Not really, any bullet that fits works… we have used different ones and as long as they are lubed they will easily go into the hole.

{As an aside, I found that the RO-80mm Bullet (or this one) is the perfect width and length and power. It’s a little bit longer than standard blunt-ended bullets like this one (on the left in the pic), and that length matters. If you put the typical wireless bullet down in the hole….even lubed, you can’t grasp enough to pull it out.}

jollet3 And with the longer RO-80mm Bullet


Q. I see so few reviews of these toys, I’m not sure why. But a common gripe is that it’s too thick for some of the women who have reviewed them. Do you ever plan on making a slimmer version?

A. You know, we’ve gotten that question before… and no, we don’t plan on making a thinner version. The idea was to get women to understand that this is not an in-out- type dildo. They are not made to pump like traditional dildos; instead they are made to sit in the vagina… maybe turned … mostly tapped on or vibrated to make the woman feel good. That’s a big reason why they seem ‘too big’ . But well-lubed and ready, they slide in and “WOW”

jollet

“WOW” is right. These are not dildos to use as a warm up. These are toys you use when you’re highly aroused and have had something else smaller inside of you. Unless, of course, you’re me. For the first 10 seconds it’s an effort to get it inside my pussy and past the fattest part of the dildo – but then it’s settled in place and perfectly filling. Where the fat end pushes up into your g-spot, the tapered head slides on in under the cervix. Those two sensations combine to give a feeling of fullness and stimulation without needing to thrust. If you have a tough time accommodating toys that are over 1.5″ wide, then these might not be for you.While the whole thing isn’t this big, the widest spot is 1.75″ wide.

The Jollie I can actually leave inside me and walk around/sit with it in. My typical method is to use the Hitachi with it. I don’t need to move the dildo at all, or move the handle which so snugly cups my cunt and my clit to perfection. I just press the Hitachi to the Jollie. I’ve actually never been much for vibrating dildos because it wasn’t enough. But this? Holy mother of god it’s eyes-rolling-to-the-back-of-my-head good.Move the Hitachi between vibrating the “tail” and the “handle” and it’s just fucking divine. Also because of the unique shape, when my cunt contracts hard from the strong orgasms, this dildo doesn’t get pushed out.

The Jollet is awesome to use with a partner during oral sex. I use the bullet in mine and find that, because again of the perfect pressure and fullness, even just the bullet vibe adds a delicious note and I can feel that on my g-spot. Just because the lower half of the Jollet is more “traditional dildo” style, please don’t thrust it. It’s just not meant for that, and you’ll likely find it uncomfortable. Clench down on it, rock it a bit. But no thrusting. I prefer to use my Jollet with a partner, because then they can turn it and also make sure that the g-spot bump is always turned up the correct way. Unlike the Jollie, this one can be turned all around.


ETA: Jollies, LLC the company went under a few years ago. The owners children, however, decided to breathe new life in and they are now making these dildos (along with other interesting silicone things) under Chavez Dezingz. Or something like that. You can view their dildos for sale at their Etsy store

Why yes, I can talk even more about these two toys!! To get down to a little bit more nitty-gritty, and all the specs and such, you can read my reviews located at EdenFantasys. The Jollie here, and the Jollet here.

I can only imagine the flurry of genuflecting, Hail Mary’s and whatnot goin on whenever a Catholic gets a load of the products from Divine Interventions.

*shakes head*

I just don’t know what to think. Except that I’m laughing. It’s brilliant. Fucked up, but brilliant for the most part.

However, as non-religious as I am…..I still think it’s wrong to shove the Baby Jesus up your ass. 67 kinds of wrong, in fact.

Now this one isn’t too awful. And you gotta admit that the colors, marbling etc is really pretty. Behold, “God’s Immaculate Rod

godspinky_front

From the site:

Find the true meaning of comfort…
Find out what it means to be truly “touched” by God…
Find out what Mary felt, the night that she conceived…
Sitting in the lap of the Holy Ghost on God’s Immaculate Rod


There’s the Virgin Mary.

“2nd coming” heh….hehhehe….


Jackhammer Jesus! It could almost be an Easter decoration….

From the site:

Jesus was a carpenter
now he’s the powertool

He’s the baddest and the best
In all of Nazareth

The Jackhammer Jesus has just one safety rule:

feet first, feet first
not the head, ya fool


The Devil might be one I could consider owning. Ya know, being as how I am well acquainted with the Devil and all.

“Kegelize the Prince of Darkness into submission”  LOL


Appropriately, Buddha is the fattest of them all, at a whopping 2 1/4″ inches wide. If I could get over the fact that it has a face, I’d consider it…..since it’s difficult to find silicone dildos of this width.

buddha

“OM…. OM….. OM…IGOD!”


The Grim Reaper, “Le Petit Mort ain’t so petite anymore”

Well, at 7 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ he is certainly formidable.

From the site:

Try out our addictive little friend whom we call
“the little death”
(but better known to his friends as a large, black uncut cock)

In the spirit of DIY, the model comes with its own hatchet
But truth be told he be happy in da hood


Can you IMAGINE the confessional scene when a young Catholic lady does the whole “Forgive me Father for I have sinned……I shoved the Baby Jesus up my ass and did unspeakable things with the Devil”

To their credit these guys are very well made, done by hand and all silicone which is great. The marble coloring options really are beautiful. The names for some of the plain colors are awesome. “Asphyxiation Blue”, “Rag Red”, “Snow White”, and even a glow in the dark.

I suppose one bonus for those livin with the folks, you could claim that a few of them are just…..cool statues, or somethin…Or make a Dildo Creche and keep it up year round.


thanks to Jesz for including the link in her recent comment about my glass dildo review, I’ve somehow never run into this site before!!

Pinkcherry.com – Glass Dildos |  Cherries Jubilee by Dream Toys


A glass dildo. What can one say about it, really? I can tell you that it’s not as weighty as I expected it to be. Girls, have you had that experience with the glass ones? I realize it’s not going to be as hefty as my beloved Pure Wand, but I have glass figures/decorative items so I know how heavy solid glass is. Perhaps it is because this is Pyrex glass? It only weighs a smidge over 9 ounces (yes I got curious just now and weighed it, shush). It is the prettiest toy that I own, though!
