Lately I’ve been enjoying quite a bit of GoodVibe’s bigger toys. Here’s one for anyone who is a size Queen (or king!) and loves texture as well.
Looking at the Rippler online, it just seemed like such a challenge. A beautiful, ridged challenge – and I do enjoy a challenge. The Rippler is a big, bad boy, at 7 1/4″ long, and 5/8 -7/8″ in diameter. You can use it in a harness, but you may need a bigger O ring, depending on your harness. You can also choose between purple or green metallic shades. To the eye, this guy is pleasing, and I was so excited to get it.
Depending on what you want to use this for, bear the size in mind. An experienced anal player will love the Rippler, but beginners beware. While the toy is anal safe, the particular silicone it is made out of has almost no give to it, which is very different from many other silicone toys I have tried. Because the Rippler is made from such a wonderfully body safe material, you are free to share it, but only if you sterilize it properly first. Boil it for a minimum of three minutes, bleach it with a 10% bleach solution, put it in the top rack of your dishwasher, use soap and water, or a toy cleaner. The choice is yours. Just remember that silicone toys do not like silicone lubes, so be careful to only use water based with it.
In practise, I both love and hate this toy. The ridges are very pronounced. Using this with a partner was difficult because the slick surface of the toy made the Rippler flip upside down a lot, so the g-spot curve was pushing into my tail bone, a feeling I did not like at all. On my own, I was able to manipulate the Rippler just fine, but for me, I couldn’t get it in very deep because the overall length coupled with its girthy ridges made it too difficult. While I do enjoy texture, texture (for me) does not equal fast thrusting, which is something I enjoy quite a bit. Mostly, I slowly work this toy in about half way, and then I leave it in about the same spot. Depending on your masturbation style, and the type of texture your genitals enjoy, this could be a wonderful toy, or a bit too rough.
To give you an idea for sizing, I am showing the Rippler in the above picture next to The Captain, also from GoodVibes. They are both big toys, but they have differences which should help you pick which you like best. For one, the Captain’s head is much larger than the Rippler’s. They are both made of very dense silicone, and both are harness compatible. I personally prefer the Captain thuogh, because it is a bit easier to get in and out. They are both high quality toys though, and I recommend either of them to the right person.
