Whenever the word ‘DOXY’ is spoken, a ripple travels through the sex toy world, and though I’d never owned one of their products at the time of receiving it, that ripple even reached little old me when the Skittle was unveiled. I wanted it on sight, so I was stupidly excited when Lovehoney emailed me to tell me the DOXY Skittle was on its way to me in exchange for an honest review.
My first impressions were good. The Skittle is decently weighted, the parts that touch your body are soft, smooth silicone, and the parts that don’t are body-safe ABS plastic. There’s even a little felt pad on the base for grip if you fancy setting it on a flat surface and going for a ride. The cable is a practical length, and the control pad is situated at pretty much the perfect distance from the toy itself. The controls light up too, so there’s no losing it in the dark.
After plugging it in and switching it on, I found myself grinning from ear to ear. Even on the lowest speed, the Skittle rumbles. You can literally see how powerful it’s going to be, just from the blur in the tip of the smallish bulb. Top speed had me giggling like a school girl, and I felt that I was holding a very well made product in my hands, and I couldn’t wait to get it where it was supposed to go.
But then I used it.
The first issue I had with the Skittle was the vibes. They feel super powerful in the hand, but for some reason this isn’t transmitted very well in the genital area. I had planned to tease my clitoris on low and work my way up to full, but I could only just feel it, and slipping it inside on low I couldn’t feel it at all. Full speed was okay, but I kept pressing the + button, looking for just a little bit more power that I couldn’t have.
Sadly, no matter how many different positions I contorted myself into, I couldn’t reach the happy medium of internal and external stimulation the Skittle promises. I can either have the bulb inside of me but not hitting my G-spot due to its petite size, or I can have it on my clit. I can’t have dual stimulation from it at all, it’s a smidge too short for the little nub to reach my clitoris if I insert the bulb any more than half way. It falls about 1cm short, and with that bizarre lack of power the rumble doesn’t travel far enough to get me off remotely.
After almost a dozen failed attempts at reaching orgasm with the Skittle alone, I really did think that was it for this particular toy and me, but then the Fella decided I had to at least try it anally.
I don’t know what it is, but during that first anal use I discovered a spot just inside of me and a bit to the right that responds to the vibes from the Skittle in an explosive manner. It’s one of those sensations that’s so intensely fantastic, you plead for more and try to escape from it, both at the same time. That’s not an easy thing to do when you’re tied up, so – drum roll please – I lay there and had my first ever multiple orgasm without clitoral stimulation, and I loved and hated it in equal measure. I have many toys that are used anally, but none of them have ever offered this kind of experience before.
The Skittle bulb just shuddered away, not stopping or diminishing no matter how hard I squirmed or squeezed around it, and the reduction in power works well here too, as it doesn’t make me feel like I’m being penetrated by a jack hammer.
We’ve used it in a similar way many times, just to make sure it wasn’t a super horny one-off, and it wasn’t. It finds that spot and does more or less the same thing every time. I’ve gone from stressing about hating the Doxy Skittle to constantly thinking about having it inside me. I have combined it with my favourite clit stim too (the Womanizer) and I reckon I’ve found the Holy Grail combo, because both can give me very different types of orgasm, and combining them is something special.
The question is, who should buy it? I think if you find rabbit vibrators tend to overshoot your clitoris, the compact design of the Skittle will probably work for you, but if the bunny ears fall short for you, the Skittle will too. If you love anal play, I would 100% recommend it whatever your gender. The vibes aren’t as spectacular in use as they are in the hand, so power queens might be a bit let down, but if you’re looking for something that just hovers under the uber powerful radar, you’ve found it.
