I had to laugh unwrapping it — it’s a boat of a sex toy!
Designed for mounting, it has a pink penis (“probe” is the technical term) and a clitoral “bump.” It’s huge (the launch pad is 13″ long), bright fuchsia pink, funny to look at, and rather intimidating. Do NOT buy this toy for a novice sex-toy user!
And don’t buy it for girth-challenged, older women. The pink penis is 1.6″ at the widest part. It’s not long — 3.5″ insertable length — but the width made it uncomfortable for me. Maybe it’s just me, but my maximum width for an insertable toy is 1.5″ and this 1.6″ wide (it doesn’t sound that much bigger, but past the max is past the max), hard rubber penis stretched my limits and felt too hard and uncomfortable.
I’ve read other reviews from women who enjoy bouncing on the iRide but found the clitoral bump too hard. I can’t imagine bouncing on it, and I couldn’t even get far enough onto it (or it into me) for the bump to find my clitoris. You can’t get close to the clitoral knob unless you’re all the way impaled, something I didn’t manage to achieve. (No, I will not make a video of my attempts, as comical as they were.)
If you have no problem enjoying 1.6″ girth, you may enjoy this a lot. The control buttons — one for the penis, the other for the bump — are easy to find and use, and the vibrations are intense. Hint for older women with arthritic knees: Prop the whole iRide up on a pillow before you straddle it.
The iRide takes 4 AA batteries behind the battery door, easy access and well away from lubricant and clean-up splashes as long as you’re careful. Eden Fantasys sent me some Afterglow toy wipes for simple clean-up.
Thank you, Eden Fantasys, for letting me review the iRide. Sorry it didn’t work out for me!
(If you’re in or near Sebastopol, CA, and you are screaming, “Joan! Let me have your iRide!” email me.)
11/2011 update: A reader wanted my iRide, I sent it to her, and she reports that the size is fine for her and she’s enjoying it. Happy to know that! “You need to use pillows/blankets under it to get the proper angle. Wish it were silicone!” she adds.
