Back To Basics

It’s April, and you can tell spring is near by the wild changes in the weather: sunny one day, snowing the next. It’s also a great time to review new products from Cal Exotics! This month, as part of their Sexpert program, I received the Silicone Basics Long John dildo for free in exchange for this unbiased review.

calexlongjohnboxThe Silicone Basics Long John comes in a clear plastic, easy-to-open clamshell case. The toy is displayed through the front of the case, with a paper insert behind it that lists its features.This dildo is available in ivory, pink, and brown, and I received mine in ivory, which is a light flesh-tone color.

longjohninhand2The Long John is 7” long overall,  with about 5 3/4″ insertable. The head is detailed, and the lightly curved shaft features veined detail. This dildo is made of silicone, and it’s got a nice squish to the surface while still being firm. The shaft is flexible, yet holds its shape well. It’s 1 3/4″ in diameter at its widest, so it’s best for those who like a bit more girth, and it can be used vaginally or anally. The balls are small and thick, and work well to hold onto when thrusting the Long John, although they won’t work well in a harness due to their size.  The base is slightly rounded on the bottom, so this dildo may have some trouble standing up on your toy shelf.

longjohnaloneThis dildo is easy to clean, and should be cleaned both before and after use. It can be washed with antibacterial soap and hot water, boiled on the stove, or run through the dishwasher in the top rack (no soap). When dried, it can be stored in a toy bag or box.

Water-based lube is recommended, but if you prefer silicone, do a spot test on the base to make sure there’s no reaction between the lube and the toy.

So, Did It Work? This is a pretty nice dildo. It’s soft and a bit flexible, which makes inserting it a breeze. The curved head hits my G-spot just right, and it definitely feels filling. The balls and thick base work well to hold onto when thrusting, even with lube covered hands. The base could be a bit flatter, as the Long John doesn’t want to stand up on my shelf – rather it wants to rock and lean against my other toys.  It doesn’t have a lot of frills, but it works well, which is what matters.

Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Basics Long John to review this month as part of their Sexpert program! If you’re looking for a silicone dildo that’s thick, flexible, comfortable to use, and curved for G-spot stimulation, the Long John is a good one to look at.
