Review: Nexus Silo

Cool-World-Holli-Would

Cool-World-Holli-WouldIf you’ve never heard of Nexus before, they’re a luxury sex toy manufacturing company. Their prostate massagers are some of the most popular in the industry and there is an obvious reason for this.

Because they’re awesome!

The people from Nexus sent me a few of their products to try out a couple of months back and the Silo was one of them.

For starters, the Silo is one of the prostate plugs offered by Nexus. All that means is that it’s more of a hands free option. The design allows it to slide in and stay put while stimulating the prostate. If you squeeze or flex the muscles in that area, the plug will sort of rock back and forth to massage your prostate. It can be worn during sex or masturbation. A lot of times, the natural muscle spasms from having an orgasm and movements you use to thrust will be enough to move the plug.

Having said all of that, the plug was too large for John to enjoy. He wasn’t comfortable using it for anal play (on me or himself) because it’s size and shape are more geared for very advanced butt players. It’s made of a 100% matte silicone, which creates a bit more of a drag and gives some resistance to entry. It also doesn’t really have a slow taper that lends itself to more gentle anal use. Eventually, he may decide he’s ready for it, but for now he’s content to use the smaller plugs and massagers we own (and will be reviewing soon!).

So, we used it for g-spot stimulation. The same curve and stiffness of the toy that makes it ideal for prostate massage, make it a good g-spot toy. It’s relatively short and doesn’t have much of a handle, so for solo use it’s awkward to try to use, but it’s divine when you have a partner there to rock it around.

A few safety and care tips about the Silo:

  • It’s a butt toy. Butt toys are only safe if they have a flared base, so make sure that you invest in one that’s not going to land you in the emergency room. Nexus has plenty of options for you.
  • Again, it’s a butt toy. If you don’t use a condom over it, it’s going to come into contact the naturally occurring bacteria up there. Please be smart and properly clean anything you put up your butt. The Silo is 100% medical grade silicone so it can be boiled or washed on the top rack of the dishwasher (no soap) to sanitize it. You can also wash it with an antibacterial soap after use. Just be sure that if you share it, between holes or partners, that you sanitize it or slip a condom over it first!
  • Because it’s made of silicone, don’t use silicone based lubricants with it. The silicones will kill each other. These are luxury toys and you don’t want to mess them up!

Other than that, enjoy it!
