Purity 2


A couple of weeks ago Pamela from Blush Novelties got in touch with me and asked if she could send over a couple of toys for me to review. The first one I'm going to be looking at today is the Purity 2 dildo, but keep your eyes peeled for the Prostimulator in the future.

The Purity 2 is one of a modest range of silicone dildos currently in the Blush product line, and while there may not be many it's still good to see companies moving in this direction. Strangely enough, despite the name of the toy, there actually appears not to be a Purity 1, which makes the choice of nomenclature slightly confusing to say the least, but I digress.

The dildo is a surprisingly small piece as it transpires, and this becomes apparent when you see it in person for the first time. It's much smaller than anything I'd typically choose for myself, and is in fact dwarfed by the very first dildo I ever bought way back when. To my mind it definitely fits firmly into the category of a beginner's dildo, or one for people who don't like too much size. Just to give you an idea of what I mean, it measures 6" in total length, with roughly 5 1/2" actually insertable. Around the widest point the girth is 4 5/8", but for the most part it's nearer to only 3 3/4".

The design of the dildo is quite simplistic as you can probably gather from the images. It has a completely smooth shaft with a matte finish - described on the box as "satin", but which I would typically refer to as  being "velvety." Along the length of the shaft the thickness varies slightly as it becomes more bulbous towards the tip, and then the tip itself hooks over in a manner slightly reminiscent of the Tantus Tsunami, though in a less exaggerated fashion. Probably the most interesting aspect of the design is actually the base of the dildo, which is heart-shaped. The base is quite broad and flared, making it harness-compatible, completely anal-safe, and also perfect for standing the toy upright on. The underside of the base is concave, much like on a wine bottle, and it acts quite well as an in-built suction cup, depending on the type of surface you apply it to, and provided you can press it into place with sufficient force. The packaging makes no mention of this as one of the dildo's features, so it may be be a bonus with I stumbled on.

The dildo is constructed to a good standard, and though it does have seams they're subtle enough that they can barely be felt when you run a finger over them. The type of silicone used in the Purity 2 is noticeably quite firm; there's very little give in the surface when you attempt to squeeze it, and while the shaft does flex it's more because of how thin it is. Like any silicone product it is odourless, non-porous, and completely body-safe, which is why it's one of my favourite materials.

When it comes to using the dildo it's a very comfortable object to insert, with the satin finish holding water-based lubes well, and the rounded tip gently working its way into the body. The base acts as a good handle for you to grab onto, and the Purity 2 glides seamlessly back and forth in as you thrust with it. Objectively it's a good little dildo, but from a personal standpoint I know that it's just not the dildo for me. I said earlier that it's a beginner toy, and a beginner I am not. The only problem I have is that I just find it rather boring. For someone with experience the size is too small; it's simply not at all filling when inserted, and it offers no pleasant stretching sensation. The dildo also lacks any form of texture, so there are no interesting bumps along the shaft to add a sense of real stimulation. The other point I'll make is that the shape just doesn't do anything for my prostate. No matter which way I try to angle it it simply won't seem to hit the right spot. It's rather counter-intuitive because you'd expect a tip of that shape to be especially good at rubbing against the prostate, but in my experience it didn't work out that way.

The Purity 2 comes in some simple yet tasteful packaging. It's a clear plastic box so it's not entirely discreet in the face of prying eyes, but it does look nice. It's probably not the sort of packaging which you'd want to keep as there's nothing special about it, so it's worth finding a less bulky long-term storage solution.

Overall I'd say that the Purity 2 is an attractive and well made dildo, but it's definitely a prime example of the importance of pairing up with right toy with the right person. Don't allow yourself to be fooled by the photos, because it is small, and for that reason it limits who it's suitable for. If you're looking for something on the diminutive side, just to experiment around with, then it could be worth considering. If what you want is something which is going to deliver a lot of stimulation, then you're looking in the wrong place. It simply doesn't have the size or shape to deliver on those fronts, and you're liable to end up bored.
