Staff Review: Ripley

I’m a pretty indecisive person. Or rather, I hate having to narrow down my choices when there are so many good options! This is why I love Ripley. Why choose between a butt plug and anal beads when you can get the best of both worlds in one shimmery purple toy?

Ripley is made of 100% medical grade platinum silicone – which means it’s incredibly durable, totally non-porous, easy to clean, and because it contains no metal components, you can even boil it to clean it (or put it in the dishwasher, if you’re so bold!). It also retains temperature nicely if you want to cool it down or heat it up (but not too much, please! No burning or freezing your hiney!) and if you hold a vibrator up to the base, it will transmit the vibration through the whole thing! And it comes in two sizes so you can find the perfect fit for you!

But the best part of Ripley is the design. It starts off very small at the tip and you can ease your way into it, one “bead” at a time. So by the time you get to the base of the toy, you won’t even realize you put the whole thing in. Seriously. That’s why this toy is great for beginners – so don’t be intimidated by the large base of the thing. It’s also lovely for experienced butt lovers as well, due to its unique shape. What happens is this – your anal sphincters close over each small “neck” between the “beads” and the open again as the beads get larger. This pulsating of your sphincter muscles can be very enjoyable as it mimics the contractions of orgasm (albeit slowly). When you get the thing all the way in, you can just enjoy the full feeling you get from any butt plug… and for the grand finale, pull the beads out slowly (or quickly… depending on your preference!) as you come, and it will enhance your orgasmic contractions. Heaven!

The only downside to the Ripley, as far as I’m concerned, is that the final neck at the base is kind of wide. What this means is as you’re doing your other business – masturbating or enjoying the company of others – it’ll slide out a bit, so that the long wide base is sticking out of your ass and you have to push it backĀ  in. This isn’t a huge deal, as generally speaking, it’ll stop sliding once it reaches the biggest bead, but it can be a kind of weird sensation. Nevertheless, this is the *only* problem I have with this toy.

Basically, Ripley is a pure delight, for those who want to both have and eat their cake, or for anyone who wants a new ride for their butt to test drive.
