I had no idea what I was getting when I received an email telling me the Mia Maxx Thrusting Vibrator was on its way to me. At first it was referred to as a rabbit, then a thrusting sex machine, but what I got was neither of those things. What I got is weird.
I said it looks like snapped golf club, and the Fella thinks it looks like a gearstick with a cock on the end.
What it is, is a usb rechargeable vibrating dildo, with a three inch thrusting motion. The parts that remain outside of the body are black and silver plastic, and the insertable dildo is made from black silicone.
The shaft is approximately 5 inches long, with a 5 inch circumference at the widest point. It’s a realistic shaft, complete with foreskin wrinkles and veins, and boasts a well-defined glans too. There’s a little bit of give to the silicone, but for the most part, it’s solid. That silicone shaft is actually interchangeable (additional sleeves sold separately) and it twists off and clicks back on pretty easily.
The 3 inch thrust is achieved by a silicone concertina, which expands and folds as the toy moves. If you ever met the ROCKBOX Finger (I feel sorry for you) you’ll know that there was a seriously ouchy nip to be had if your skin got trapped in the moveable parts. The Mia Maxx is much more cushioned, and there’s only a risk of a nip if you wilfully jam a finger in between the shaft and base. I know, cos I did it.
On the golf clubby handle live the operating buttons, in the shape of a triangle. The on/off button sits at the top, the button on the right controls the three thrusting speeds, and the one on the left gives you power over the 7 vibration modes. The thrust function can be operated on its own, but if you want vibes, you have to have the thrusts too.
Deciding how powerful the vibes are is a difficult task. I can honestly say, I’ve never had vibrations drowned out by motion before, but the Mia Maxx has achieved it. I literally can’t feel the vibes, but not cos of the thrusts: it’s because of the fucking noise.
I shit you not, this is the noisiest sex toy I’ve ever come across, and I can’t for the life of me concentrate on the vibes, though if I had to, I’d say they’re mid-strength buzzy. The noise would be fine if you were using it on a busy train station, but if you’re in a house, on a street, with other houses around you, people are gonna know you’re using a sex toy. It’s THAT loud.
Now for the thrusts. I’m torn here because, for me, successful use of the Mia Maxx is entirely dependent on whether I’m using it alone, or with the Fella. It is pretty powerful, and the 3 inch range is awesome, but if I’m using it solo, I hate it. I have short arms and a big belly, so getting the right angle is a chore, and I’m either having my pubic bone smashed to bits, or I have to scrunch up so I can hold on with two hands, and that just ain’t comfy.
Getting it situated inside me before pressing go is marginally better, but I have to literally strong arm it into actually moving inside me. It doesn’t stall or jam like the ROCKBOX Finger did every time I used it, it just wants to push out, and if I let it go, it just starts waving its end in the air like it just doesn’t care. I don’t know about you, but I can’t orgasm when I’m busy laughing at a sex toy bobbing around between my thighs.
When the Fella gets his hands on it, though, it’s a different story altogether. He can get himself into the perfect position to angle the shaft to allow for penetration, and he has plenty of upper body strength, so he can hold it in place so that it fucks me instead of his hands. I really appreciate the power the Mia Maxx has to offer when he gets involved, and I can definitely say I’m never going to bother with it unless he’s with me. All I need to do is hold a bullet against my clit and let the toy do all the work. It doesn’t feel ‘real’ by any stretch, but as the man says, it sure as hell gives the wrists a rest, so it’s a great toy for partnered peeps to consider.
The body of the Mia Maxx isn’t water proof, so I’ve been cleaning mine with a cloth sprayed with toy cleaner. The shaft can be removed and washed, just make sure its dry before you reattach it. You get a lovely storage box with the Mia Maxx, and also a velvety bag, so keeping it nice and safe once it’s clean is a cinch.
When it comes to a verdict, I’m not sure what to say. The Mia Maxx is quite powerful and I do orgasm with it, but it’s not good enough to justify the racket it makes, in my opinion. If you live in a situation where noise isn’t a problem for you, give it try.
Those who have limited mobility, weak hands, or who carry a lot of their weight around their middle may find they struggle to use the Mia Maxx alone, but if you have a partner who will share the load, maybe give it a chance.
