Keep Burning Shaft Dildo


This week I have a brand new sponsor, the lovely folks at Meo.de - your premiere source of sex toys in Germany - and they've kindly sent me a couple of things to review for them. The first up is the Shaft dildo from Keep Burning, a brand I've been impressed by in the past, so let's see if this one lives up to its reputation. 

The Shaft dildo is a bit of a departure for me from the type of dildo I normally go for as it's all about the length, but much less so the girth. That's one of the things that actually drew me to it in my quest for variety, and it's quite a lovely dildo to behold as it stands towering above all others in the vicinity, holding its head aloft seemingly craning for the sky.

In terms of shape the dildo is fairly regular, beginning with a nice compact set of balls at base which act almost like a solid paperweight and stabilise the whole thing. The shaft extends vertically upwards, being both perfectly straight and uniform in size. At the top it's capped off by a nice tapered head which flares out a good way from the shaft below, giving a strongly pronounced ridge.

With regard to dimensions we're looking at a 9 1/2" total length, with 8" insertable, so whichever way you look at it that's a lot of dildo. The girth measures in at a modest 4 3/4" around the shaft, increasing to 5 1/4" right at the corona of the head, which gives some perspective on just how prominent it is.

The Shaft dildo is made from 100% platinum silicone, which is a fantastic odourless body-safe material, and one which I always recommend. The silicone is a little on the firmer side as it needs sufficient rigidity to hold its shape with such long thin shaft, but its still got enough give in it that you can easily compress the surface with a gentle squeeze. It comes in just one colour, black, and the finish on it is neither wholly matte nor wholly gloss, but rather it has this subtle "leather" texture to it which is really quite nice and precisely what you would expect from that name.

When it comes to using the dildo it's nice and easy to insert thanks to the tapered head and its narrow nature. It doesn't require a lot of force to get it inside, nor any sort of warm up toy beforehand, just a good dollop of lube and you're good to go. It passes comfortably through the sphincter, and as you slide over the coronal ridge you get that telltale "pop" sensation as the head goes fully inside. Naturally it doesn't feel that filling as it works its way further into the body, but it's still a pleasant sensation, and you can pick up on a little bit of that leather texture which adds some additional interest. One of the benefits of the dildo's shape is that it's able to go quite deep, and not just because it has the length to enable that, but because the slenderness of the shaft helps it to snake around inside the body. If like me you generally struggle with longer toys, and find that there's a point beyond which they will simply go no further, then this dildo can help to advance beyond that. Admittedly I cannot manage the whole thing, but it has made good progress beyond my usual capability which is encouraging.

Like most dildos the highlight of use comes down to the thrusting, and the prominent ridge on the head helps to deliver some enjoyable sensations. It's not the most amazing prostate toy I've experienced, but you can definitely feel that ridge hitting the right spot, and thanks to the flexibility in the slim shaft you can really bend and angle the dildo so it pulls that ridge right into the prostate on each stroke. It's not without effort, but if you get your technique right then you can really work it to its fullest potential. Because of the length of the dildo, and the hefty pair of balls at the base, it's especially suited to being ridden. When you squat over it you don't need to go down quite so low as you might with other toys, and it stays perfectly stable in the process without toppling over. You can, of course, thrust manually with it, and this works just as well, with the balls acting as a nice handle to grip onto. 

It's a good little dildo for people who don't want too much girth, especially on the more beginner end of the spectrum, and also for people who are looking to experiment with a few inches beyond the norm. In this respect it's quite versatile, and throw in its ability to hit the prostate reasonably well and you have yourself a good all round dildo. I'd be quite happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a dildo that fits these specific requirements, though personally I'm still going to favour the shorter and thicker ones.

Thanks to Meo.de for sending me the Shaft dildo, and it's available to purchase from their website right now.
