Doc Johnson Truskyn Tru Super Dual-Density Dildo Review

Dual-density silicone is all the rage these days,1 so it’s no surprise that the huge American manufacturer Doc Johnson stepped into the ring a couple years back.

The dildo contender I’m looking at today—the Tru Super—is part of Doc J.’s Truskyn line of dual-density,2 platinum silicone toys.3 IMO, Doc Johnson was smart to create both very realistic dual-density dils and more abstract ones, because people’s preferences do vary a lot. The Tru Super falls in between these categories. From a distance its shape is kinda penis-like, but when you look more closely, you see the Tru Super’s head is pointy, its shaft is covered in squares instead of veins, and bright pink is a color option. (As is black-as-night.) Doc Johnson Truskyn Tru Super featured

I was drawn to the Tru Super’s larger head (1.7″ max. diameter at the coronal ridge, vs. 1.4″–1.5″ for the rest of the shaft), and I was also intrigued by the surface texture. How would it feel in use?

More Textured Than You’d Think

The Tru Super is indeed covered in squares. Even when I thrust the toy very slowly, I can’t feel the squares individually, but I do feel some minimal texture. The surface isn’t slick, for sure. Because the Tru Super’s outer layer of silicone is soft and slightly sticky, thrusting the toy creates some drag. But, like VixSkin, it glides easily once you’re sufficiently lubed up.

What I really feel when using the Tru Super is its ridges. First, that fairly prominent coronal ridge is focused—just a little pointy—in the center, instead of being totally rounded. Then, the shaft has a vertical ridge extending up from the base, both on the front side and on the back side (especially). For me, the pointy head ridge and vertical line detract from the kind of bulbous and broad G-spot stimulation I’m really into.Doc Johnson Truskyn Tru Super front edit

Usually in pointy-coronal-ridge situations, I just flip the dildo backward, since the back wall of my vagina is less sensitive than the front one. But the Tru Super has that super-duper-pronounced vertical ridge coming up from the balls. It’s a shame that this ridge irritates the mouth of my vag, because my G-spot really wanted to like the interesting curvy shape on the back of the Tru Super’s head.Doc Johnson Truskyn Tru Super back of head

I’d just about given up on this dildo when I realized that, since the Tru Super is kinda flexible, I could wrap it around my vulva for dual stimulation. The toy has a little under 6″ insertable length, so enough for me4 to get its substantial head inside my vag, just under my pubic bone, while I bend the shaft to hit beneath my clit. This way, the vertical line that comes up from the base is suddenly an advantage.

And this is how I managed to have intense blended orgasms with the Tru Super. The sensation of the vertical ridge moving back and forth, from my under my clit almost to the mouth of the vag, is the closest dildo experience I’ve had to being fingered externally. Plus the head has a nice weight (and squish!) to it, so the mouth/first couple inches of my vagina get some much-needed attention. When I use the Tru Super like this, I even squirt a little—something that’s never happened to me with any other insertable toy.

So, among all the dildos in my collection, the Tru Super has turned out to be the best for external + internal stimulation for me. But if you don’t like focused rubbing sensations, or you need stimulation to either the right or the left of your clit, it’s possible that the Tru Super won’t be your thing.5

Overall I’m very happy with how this solution works out for my body. There is one problem with it, though: the Tru Super’s balls.

What to Do with the Balls?

The indentation kinda looks like a heart, doesn’t it?

I usually dislike balls on dildos because I’m a big fan of jerking things by hand (and the balls get in the way). And the Tru Super’s balls are a really bad offender this way, because they’re a big shelf (like the VixSkin Johnny) instead of being flattened against the shaft. I have to fold them over to really get a good grip while thrusting, which is hard on my hand.

Obvious solutions to this problem include using a Liberator mount like my Wing, or using a double-sided suction cup, so I could just ride the Tru Super instead of jerking it. But…the Tru Super’s shaft angles backward a tad, so I can’t quite get the right angle for my desired clit-stimulating curve. Close…but not exactly.

If you’re good with ridgy texture and don’t need a forward-curving dildo, then using the Tru Super in a toy mount or a harness will let you avoid my ball-shelf woes. The Tru Super’s balls may even be an advantage, if you like to feel weight against your pubic mound while strapping on.

“Real Skin”?

Apart from the Tru Super’s non-phallic ridges, I’m glad to say that the dildo is actually fairly realistic in use. I wouldn’t go so far as to agree that the Tru Super “actively creates the tender feel of real skin.” It’s soft, sure, but it’s not exactly skin-like.

I do think the Tru Super’s balance between soft outer layer of silicone and firm core is a good attempt at re-creating a penis-like feel, especially for the price. (I’d definitely argue that New York Toy Collective’s Ellis is more realistic overall, but it’s also twice the cost.) The Tru Super’s firm core is maybe a tad more flexible than an erection.

If you are into extra realism, consider checking out the Truskyn Tru Ride dildos. (I totally would’ve gotten a Tru Ride 8″ by now if it weren’t for my aforementioned dislike for ball shelfs!)

A Quick Word of Caution

Included with the Truskyn Tru Super is a packet of corn starch (a.k.a. “Platinum Premium Silicone Powder”) that’s totally unnecessary. I talk about why silicone toys don’t need any “renewing powder” in my American POP Rebel review.

And then there’s the included lube sample, whose second ingredient is glycerin. This ingredient is associated with a greater chance of yeast infection and/or irritation. I recommend not using the lube, either vaginally or anally.

Overall Thoughts

Doc Johnson’s Truskyn Tru Super is a good value for dual-density silicone.6 After testing the Tru Super, I’m much more likely to recommend Doc Johnson’s dual-density silicone toys than I was before. The silicone has a nice feel: a good balance of hard and soft, IMO.

But my recommendation isn’t a blanket one: the Tru Super has a bit of texture that may put some (more sensitive) people off. The vertical ridges that run up the center—both front and back—don’t rub my vag the right way when I’m inserting the full length. But, when I used the Tru Super for shallower stimulation, I found that the front vertical ridge worked well for extra clit stimulation. And the Tru Super’s head has a very pleasing squish!

If you’d like to try out the Truskyn Tru Super for yourself, you can find it here. Or check out all the Truskyn platinum silicone toys here for more options.

My thanks to SheVibe for sending me this toy in exchange for my honest review!

Believe me, I will tell you when something does not work for me or when I think it’s badly designed. By making your next purchase through my affiliate links, you can support my writing at absolutely no cost to you.

  1. For good reason, I’d say.
  2. Except for these Truskyn strokers, which aren’t two-layered (unless you count the penis you put inside them).
  3. These Truskyn toys are body-safe, and are not to be confused with Doc J.’s porous Ultraskyn toys, which I strongly recommend you not buy.
  4. Your/your partner’s mileage may vary, as clit-to-vag distance differs widely.
  5. I can’t comment on how the lines would feel anally because my butt isn’t up to the Tru Super’s girth!
  6. Other affordable options include Blush Novelties’ Real Nude dildos.
