NS Novelties ColourSoft 8″ Review

Re-creating existing toys in softer silicone is suddenly the new big thing: first Tantus’ new Super Soft releases, and now NS Novelties’ ColourSoft series. As something who’s sensitive to pressure, I welcome this trend. A Colours Pleasures Thick 5″ was part of my first silicone dildo order, and while I loved the realistic shape, the protruding coronal ridge was too hard for me to enjoy really pounding the toy. But now that I’ve tested out the new ColourSoft 8″, I can confidently say that NS Novelties has found my Goldilocks firmness for single-density toys1: flexible, but not floppy while I’m inserting it or riding it.

ColourSoft toys are currently available in two sizes: the 8″ (actually 7.25″ insertable length, with 2″ max diameter; available in blue, purple, and black) and the 5″ (1.5″ max diameter; available in blue, purple, and pink). My blue 8″ is quite a large toy. Since I’m an impatient masturbator, I tend to stick dildos into myself as quickly as possible, but the ColourSoft 8″ (a.k.a. “the big blue dick”) makes me do some warmup exercises. After a minute of rubbing the head around my vulva, though, I’m able to insert the broad head, and after a couple more minutes of slow thrusting, using the toy feels completely natural—I’m sure because of my preference for this density of silicone!

I absolutely love the squish of the coronal ridge now. In use, it feels like the firmest part of the toy. In fact, I could have lived with the firmer-density silicone used in my Colours Pleasures dildo if it weren’t for that pronounced ridge: my G-spot felt assaulted by it. But in this softer silicone, the coronal ridge provides just the right amount of firm pressure that gets me off hard and fast. Plus the exaggerated veins provide lots of fun secondary texture.

When I’m thrusting fast by hand, the lower shaft does bend a little more than I’d like, but this is unavoidable with softer single-density toys. (Dual-density is the answer if you’re looking for an even-more-realistic feel.) I sometimes try to avoid too much bending by choking up on the shaft, so that I have my hand wrapped around it right above the balls. It’s difficult to get a really amazing hold his way, so after a few minutes, I usually switch back to gripping the squishy balls really tight. (More on that in a few paragraphs!)

When stuck to a wall, the ColourSoft’s shaft is also a bit floppy. But the flexibility isn’t the worst thing, because if I angle the dildo upward and then close my close my legs around it, it delivers some good, broad G-spot stimulation. (The long length helps for this position.) And when I have the ColourSoft 8″ stuck to a horizontal surface like a chair (a nightstand, in my case), I can control the angle of penetration better. Then the shaft’s bendiness doesn’t bother me.

In general I prefer smaller bases and no balls on my toys (for easier manual thrusting), but I quickly realized that squeezing the ColourSoft’s balls really hard was a big turn-on for me, as they’re the squishiest silicone balls I’ve yet had. By squeezing and thrusting, squeezing and thrusting, I explored my domineering side.

This toy has made me rethink my dislike for balls on dildos.

Plus, the suction cup is soft and thin enough that I can fold over part of it and get a better grip around the base of the shaft and those balls. Speaking of the suction cup, it is strong, though I found the Colours Pleasures suction cup stronger. The ColourSoft suction cup needs to be very firmly pressed into place to stick well, but then it’s good to go for a long ride.

A final note about the silicone: because this is a softer silicone, it’s also somewhat sticky, and it may get slightly more sticky over time. This is normal, but if you want to keep your firmer silicone toys safe,2 I’d recommend storing the ColourSoft dildos separately, like in a plastic freezer bag or any kind of (large, in this case) satiny storage bag.

Final Thoughts

As I’m sure you can tell by now, I’m incredibly excited that NS Novelties has come out with this softer alternative. At only $24 for a small and $44 for a very large dildo, ColourSoft will now be my first recommendation to anyone who’s looking for an affordable and realistic suction-cup dildo, unless the person definitely wants something hard. I plan on squishing my ColourSoft 8″ regularly—both in my hands and in my vag—whenever I want a thick toy with an awesome coronal ridge.

  2. Softer silicones, like in the 00 series, often contain siloxane fluids, which are pure silicone and are safe. However, they may react with certain other silicone blends in the same what that silicone lubricants sometimes react with silicone sex toys.

    Thank you so much for your reviews, Felicity, especially for this one and your Silicone Dildo Firmness Guide! You’re a lifesaver. Thanks to you, I could finally find the affordable squish I was craving. ColourSoft are really pretty, fun toys. I can’t stop stroking them. I bought the 5″ one first and I was so in love with its squishiness, I soon decided to get another one, plus the 8″ version. By the way, I’ve tried sticking the two 5″ dildos together, using their cups, and it worked very well. This way I could create either a “handle”, for (my partner’s) easier thrusting, or a double-ended dildo.

    Also, your writing is both informative and entertaining. You’re doing a great job, making this world a better place! I hope you’ll keep having lots of fun with your toys 🙂

      Hey, thanks so much! I think that’s the nicest comment I’ve ever gotten here! I’m glad I helped you.

      You’re right, I’m wondering why I haven’t bought the 5″ ColourSoft! They’re so fun to twist around and squeeze. Sticking two of them together is a great idea, too—thanks for letting me know that works well.

    i was wondering since you’ve used the coloursoft 8, the colours 8 and some vixskin dildo.
    How does the firmness compare ?
    I own a similar dildo as the colours 8 called bondara mr realistic (i think it’s the same size or just a bit less (5,5inch circum) i’m using the large http://www.bondara.co.uk/bondara-flesh-realistic-suction-dildo).
    It’s supposed to be the same mold and same material. i’m also using a Johnny VixSkin.

    My girl like the shape of the mr realistic because the texture is nice. But it’s a bit too much texture for her and usually even with lot of foreplay she sometimes get uncomfortable down there afterward. She can’t really trust it long. She feels uncomfortable with the veins after a minute or 2.. Johnny viskin is way more squishy and the texture is really nice. It’s a bit larger but it feels less larger because of the texture. But the coronal ridge isnt that great/proeminant/stiff and the tip is a bit too squishy.

    If the coloursoft is really bigger maybe then it’ll be too big. And it’s quite expensive. I might like it and use it for myself tho.
    What do you think ?

      I totally understand where your girlfriend is coming from. The hardness of the ridge on the Colours dildos and Mr Realist (I reviewed the next-to-largest
      of those) can be too much.

      So the ColourSoft 8″‘s head is more stimulating to me than the VixSkin Johnny’s. The silicone is squishy, and it’s flexible, but the veins definitely add texture. It’s not slick like Johnny. Here’s a quick shot I took of ColourSoft 8″, Johnny, and next-to-largest Mr Realist for size comparison.

      If Johnny is a bit too large, I’d recommend the Tantus Vamp Super Soft (here’s my review) because it’s a little smaller, and the silicone is soft but not oh-so-squishy like that outer layer of VixSkin. Vamp also doesn’t have much texture on the shaft, so thrusting it hard/fast is very comfortable. It is maybe $10 or $15 more expensive, because Tantus’ toys aren’t mass-produced in China like NS Novelties’. Or there’s the Blush Ruse Shimmy, which is about the same firmness as Mr Realist, but the Ruse dildos have a smoother finish and the ridge on this one bends back a little instead of forward, so maybe less ouch-y on the front wall of the vag than the Colours Pleasures dongs.

      I hope this helps!
