Off the Peg Design from MadeToPleasure.com
I recently wrote about a truly innovative line of adult products from the company called Made To Pleasure. MTP have created a web interface which allows you to create the sex toy of your dreams and then have it turned into a real life sex toy – How cool!
As well as being able to create almost any shape you can imagine Made To Pleasure also have a range of six different off the peg designs, each created to maximise your sexual pleasure. I’m such a very lucky girl as Made To Pleasure sent me my very own ‘Pearl‘ to take for a test drive, and review for you.
The Important Info
Size: 7″ (almost 18cm) long with a 4cm width and a maximum girth of 4.75″ at its widest point
Material: Mine is made from a clear, 100% body safe, phthalate free polymer but it is also available with an optional silver or gold finish.
Also Included: Vibrating bullet with its 3 required watch batteries, Lube samples and sterilising alcohol wipes.
The first thing that struck me as unique and luxurious about my Made To Pleasure sex toy was the package handed to me by the delivery person. It is a specially designed shipping box that fully envelops the box housing the toy, ensuring that no matter where on earth you are your MTP sex toy arrives safely in your hands. After unzipping the cardboard box what I found inside felt just like a birthday present. Wrapped up in soft black tissue paper that was held closed with a made to pleasure logo sticker – It was a special touch that made me feel kinda special and just goes to show that this company are willing to go that extra step and add those extra little details that are required to take a sex toy company truly into the luxury league.
After unwrapping my gift I found my treasure – a beautiful shade of deep grey box which when I removed the lid presented me with the pearl. I counted the curves up along the shaft. 5 gradually larger spherical shapes that I knew I was going to just love. For me a great dildo doesn’t have to be big, it doesn’t need to look anything like a disembodied penis, nor does it have to vibrate, glow or sing a tune. It just has to have a few nice bumps that are big enough for me to feel as it is worked in and out of me but not so big that they require too much warming up. I was so enamoured just looking at it sitting in the box that I almost forgot to take it out and see what else was hidden below it.
After untying the ribbon that held the pearl in place on top of a bed of soft black felt I found a veritable treasure trove of gifts underneath. All of Made to pleasure’s toys are sent out with a small, push button vibrating bullet as well as the batteries required for it to work. I swear it is these little touches that truly do Impress me. Also Included were two samples of “Pure Pleasure’ water based Lubricant, a sachet of “Pink” Silicone based lubricant and some alcohol wipes that can be used to sterilise the toy after use.
Made To Pleasure put a lot of research into their targeted female audience when they created their range and they found that most of us end up using our vibrators for clitoral stimulation. A finding I can’t disagree with. Of all the vibrators I have every single one has spent more time pleasing my clit rather than vibrating my G Spot. So I’m a big fan of using dildos and adding vibrations to them by just holding a bullet style vibrator against them. I’ve always been a fan of multifunctional products! When Made to pleasure discovered this trend within their targeted market they decided that creating perfectly shaped dildo’s to provide penetrative pleasure and teaming them up with simple, easy to use bullet vibrators was the key to satisfying their customers. You can either hold the bullet vibe against the toy to have the vibrations travel through it, or you can use it against the clit whilst thrusting with the toy. The latter is my personal preference, but I was surprised by how well the vibrations travelled throughout the toy.
This is the first toy I have owned that is made of this clear, acrylic like material (well technically it is a polymer but I’m no chemist!) but I really like it. It looks like glass and has all of the same material benefits off glass, but it feels much lighter and not so cold to the touch either. On a cool day I don’t need to warm it up before using it, yet if you wanted to use it for temperature play by warming or cooling it in the desired temperature water I can assure you that it performs well.
All of made to pleasure’s toys are 100% body safe, phthalate free, latex free and non porous. Cleaning is a breeze – just warm water and soap will do the job and a diluted bleach solution will sterilise it if you wish to use it with a partner. Alcohol, or alcohol wipes similar to those provided with the toy can also be used to ensure it’s fully sanitised and you don’t have to worry about the alcohol damaging the toys surface. Although it may seem that this toy would be a perfect candidate for being washed in the dishwasher the information sheet that came with the pearl says not to put it through the dishwasher.
The shape of the pearl is what makes it a great sex toy for me. I can easily discern each extra bump as it slides smoothly in and out of me. It can also be used either way – big end in or smaller end in. The smaller end in is usually how I start, switching it around once I’m getting into it. No matter which end I’m using I’ve found that there is more than enough for me to hold onto in order to control the toys movement. Even though it is a pretty straight toy I have found that if I angle it right I can get some good contact with my G-Spot. And maybe because I’m a sex toy reviewer, or perhaps just because I’m weird I decided to try it out as a kegel exerciser – and it really does do the job quite well. The only thing I wouldn’t recommend the pearl is for anal use, but (& this is the beauty of made to pleasure’s bespoke design system) you could easily alter its design and add a flared base to it to make it safe as an anal sex toy.
I’m not sure what I could do to improve upon the pearl using Made To Pleasure’s custom design interface – perhaps I could add an extra big buldge right at the end of it, but even then that may be overkill. Their toy testers are a closely guarded secret, but I believe they are one of MTP’s greatest assets. These ladies obviously know what works when it comes to sex toys – But you know what… If you don’t find yourself drooling over any of the 6 different off the peg designs you can always make your own adjustments and have Made To Pleasure create your perfect sex toy for you.
Made to Pleasure are a UK based company but they do Ship Worldwide. Their custom shipping carton is both very protective and incredibly discreet.
