Today I am reviewing The Twist Dildo from Ceramic Pleasure.
Ceramic Pleasure is the venture of John. He has a background in community-based craft projects, working as an artist with clients from disadvantaged backgrounds and life styles, running art based workshops. He was made redundant in 2015. When a friend off-handedly joked about him making them friend a dildo, he asked “what size and colour”, and that started the ball rolling. He soon found himself with one very happy friend and a new career.
Since then John has been keeping himself busy making dildos; exploring a variety of textures and decorative applications as well as testing suitable glazes. Testing glazes takes a lot of hours and tedious experimentation in order to get pleasing results. He is still very much in the creative stages of his dildo-making efforts, and as such each toy is a unique labour of love, with no two dildos being the same. His shop has a ready-made selection available but he is also open to requests, and is willing to work with new customers to create the dildo of their dreams.
My gorgeous dildo came very well protected in a storage tube. It even had it’s own certificate of authenticity.
The Twist Dildo grabbed my attention as soon as I saw it. I love anything with an unusual shape or texture, and this just looked like it would be fun. The colour and finish are exquisite and the little smiling face on the base made me chuckle, it’s a great little touch. It is made from “stone-ware clay” that has been fired in a kiln using a protective glaze. This special glaze makes it hypoallergenic, non-porous, safe with all lubricants. It is also easy to clean, you can just wash it with anti-bacterial soap and warm water.
The colour and pattern of the glaze is a sort of speckled blue grey, which doesn’t sound exciting but trust me it is gorgeous, and the photos don’t do it justice. The finish is flawlessly smooth, with no drag whatsoever. You could definitely get away without using lube, if you prefer not to.
I liked the shape, the tapered tip meant it was easy to insert, and the ‘twist’ meant I didn’t really notice the girth. The great thing with something like this is that is is very hard, so you can feel every ridge when it’s in use. I found it felt great if I inserted it and then rotated it, the ridges would push against my g-spot in a very pleasant way. I also found that vibration travels through the Twist Dildo really nicely, I held my doxy to the base while it was inserted and I could feel the vibrations right along the shaft. I’ve not really tried doing this before but it worked very well.
I also found that the ceramic and glaze used on this dildo actually give it quite a warm, and natural feel. It might sound silly but it felt closer to nature than say a silicone dildo does. It felt comfortable, and never seemed too cold. I’ve found with glass dildos they always feel very cool when I first insert them but I didn’t have that with this, it was obviously lower than my body temperature but not necessarily so.
This is a great dildo. I loved the hard feel, and the shape. It is also a very beautiful piece of art. Something you could have out, and it wouldn’t be immediately obvious what it is.
