Review: Pipedream Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her Thrusting Vibrator

Hi, my name is Felicity, and I’m a thrusting dildo connoisseur. I love my self-propelled toys—from true thrusting dildos to pulsators and rotating vibes—but I’ll admit they can be expensive. There’s no way I would’ve accumulated three separate Fun Factory Stronic Pulsators, for example, if I was paying for them with my money rather than with my time and labor.

That’s why I was happy to see that the big toy manufacturer Pipedream had released the Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her Thrusting Vibrator. This thrusting dildo retails for $90—still not cheap for many folks, but less than half the price of a Velvet Thruster or Fun Factory Stronic Pulsator.Pipedream Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her Thrusting Vibrator featured image

Plus, the Thrust-Her promises a number of other unique features. No other self-thrusting toy includes a remote control, a heating mechanism, or a suction cup. Sounds pretty good for less than the price of a similarly sized VixSkin dildo, right?

But in the end, the Thrust-Her turned out to be a mixed bag for me. A couple of its add-ons (like the remote control) are really outstanding, but…the actual thrusting motion wasn’t quite what I’d hoped for. Here’s what I’ve discovered about all the Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her’s features.

Stroke Length and Power

The first thing I realized when testing the Pipedream Thrust-Her was that it starts out fastbut it doesn’t go far. The toy’s stroke length is nowhere near as long as that of the Velvet Thrusters by Velvet Cock. Versus their three inches of stroke length, the Thrust-Her goes maybe one inch, tops. That means the thrusting feels less realistic than I personally am looking for.

To be fair, the Thrust-Her’s stroke length is longer than the (considerably more expensive) Stronic Pulsators—whose wiggling-jiggling movement I do love! Though the Stronics’ pulsating motion is pretty darn short, these toys excel because they go so fast and they have impact because of how good the magnetic propulsion system is. (They’re also incredibly easy to hold and comfortably position.) Basically, the Pipedream Thrust-Her’s motor is up against very stiff competition.

The Thrust-Her is speedy too. It moves so fast, I had a hard time counting the pulsations of even the first steady speed. I like faster thrusting once I get more aroused, but—just like with the Evolved Novelties Infinite Thrusting Sex Machine—with the Thrust-Her, I wished I could start out a bit gentler. I’d prefer to work up to being pounded at 2 to 3 strokes per second. By the second steady speed, I’ve lost track of how fast the Thrust-Her moves; my guess is that it matches or exceeds the 140 strokes per minute that’s the Velvet Thrusters’ top speed.

And that’s my biggest annoyance about the Pipedream Thrust-Her overall: the limited number of thrusting speeds. Technically, there are seven of them. BUT—and this is a huge but for me—only two of them are steady, rhythmic speeds. The other five are patterns. I can only adequately express my feelings about the patterns with a guttural noise, something like URGHHH. For most people, patterns in clit vibes are either annoying or just do nothing, and that’s exactly how I feel about patterned thrusting. I want more steady speeds; two just isn’t enough.

Basically, if you’re looking for a toy that thrusts something like a human being might, the Thrust-Her probably isn’t the one for you. But, if you’re satisfied with short, fairly fast motions—and especially if you think you’d like patterned thrusting!—then this toy may work a lot better.

Vibration Intensity

Besides just thrusting, the Thrust-Her vibrates. Like the Evolved Thrusting Machine, the thrusting and vibration can happen either together or independent of each other. The Thrust-Her’s first steady vibe pattern is a little rumbly, and the second and third add some buzz with the power. Then come 5 vibration patterns, to match the 5 thrusting patterns. If you (unlike me) are into mixing things up, then add the patterned vibration to the patterned thrusting and make it a two-fer.

Because I usually want more from the Thrust-Her’s thrusting, I’m glad the vibes are there. They give me that push that finally allows me to orgasm on the Thrust-Her. Though the third steady speed is a little too powerful, a little too buzzy, for my liking, the first and second agree with my vag.

Shape & Silicone Quality

The Thrust-Her’s silicone is molded into a decidedly nonphallic shape: a straight shaft that widens slightly at the end, with little ribbed lines down both sides of the shaft. I can’t feel the ribbing at all; I find myself wishing it was on the front of the toy so that I might get some G-spot stimulation from it. Pipedream Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her Thrusting Vibrator head upper shaft

I am happy, though, about the firmness of the silicone; it’s pretty similar to the semi-soft feel of the Velvet Thrusters, but even more satiny. It glides nicely. Unfortunately, it didn’t smell nice when I pulled it out of the box: the Thrust-Her has a lingering smell that only time would remove. Silicone, though functionally nonporous, can and does sometimes absorb odors, and in this case, Pipedream must be using some sort of strong mold-release agent. That’s why it’s important to fully sanitize your sex toys when you first get them out of the package, to remove any factory residue! If you have an especially sensitive nose, then know that this toy is one of the worst out-of-the-box silicone offenders I’ve met.

Remote Control, Heating Feature, and Suction Cup

Now for the additional features, the ones that no other thrusting dildo includes… I liked one, found one useless, and found another occasionally fun but not quite right for me.Pipedream Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her Thrusting Vibrator accessories

The remote is by far the Thrust-Her’s best extra feature, IMO. It includes two buttons: one for the thrusting speeds and one for the vibes. (If you want to control the heating feature, you’ll need to push the button on the side of the toy instead.) If you’re riding the Thrust-Her, then the remote becomes especially useful, so that you don’t have to reach back and attempt to find the right button on the toy itself. The remote also makes it easier to cycle through the speeds, or to have a partner control your pleasure.

As for the heating feature, well, I couldn’t really feel it. Supposedly it brings the Thrust-Her’s temperature up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit (over 5 degrees above normal body temp.), but I just didn’t notice the difference in use. I once left the Thrust-Her on with only the heating function going for about ten minutes, and after that I could barely feel the warmth in the tip. I think the softer silicone absorbs most of the heat, to be honest. If you’re using your toy in a colder environment (unlike my warm house), then maybe you’ll be able to notice the difference…or not.

And finally, the suction cup! I’m a big fan of suction cup dildos, so this was the Thrust-Her extra that most stood out for me. Really, the suction cup reminds me of the Fleshlight Shower Mount except with a narrow stem and a screw that attaches the toy to the mount (versus a larger, more cupped groove). The Thrust-Her suction cup lets you choose the angle you want, which is super convenient, and it’s also tall enough for me to stick onto my floor and ride—a first for me, because usually my legs get in the way and I can’t get enough length in this position.Pipedream Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her Thrusting Vibrator suction cup bathroom floor

It can be a little tricky to get the Thrust-Her’s base screwed into the suction cup attachment so that the toy’s shaft isn’t turned 90 degrees right or left. But I’ve always gotten it to fit in properly after some adjustment. On a smooth surface, the suction is strong—but the surface does have to be quite smooth: no painted walls. At first I thought the suction was mediocre, but then I realized I wasn’t using the lock/unlock tab on the suction cup, which really locks it into place. On my tiled bathroom floor, the Thrust-Her stayed well.

Ease of Use

Besides the Fun Factory Stronics, the Thrust-Her is the easiest-to-hold self-propelled toy out there. The motor casing is nicely rounded, unlike the square (and somewhat awkward) Velvet Thruster box. The Thrust-Her gets the best range of forward motion if you hold onto the base, but it’s also possible to wedge a pillow/folded blanket/folded towel underneath the base and have it screw you hands-free while you’re on your back.

As mentioned, the remote control also makes this toy easier to use. And, though the Thrust-Her isn’t exactly quiet quiet, it is marginally less noisy than the Velvet Thrusters and the Infinite Thrusting Sex Machine. Still, the whirring noise may be off-putting to some by itself, or may be a problem for people who live with others and/or have thin walls.

And UGH, the Name

IMO it’s extremely unfortunate—a missed opportunity, really—that Pipedream chose to give this toy such a gendered name. The Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her? (And it only comes in a lilac purple?) The naming excludes not only cisgender men who enjoy anal penetration, but also people with vaginas who don’t use feminine pronouns.

The cheesiness of the name “Thrust-Her” I can excuse; but the exclusivity of it…meh.

Final Thoughts

Have I been spoiled by my Velvet Thrusters and Fun Factory Stronics? YUP. If the Pipedream Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her was my first thrusting dildo, would I have enjoyed it more? Pretty likely.

I really wanted to like the Pipedream Thrust-Her—its remote control and its suction cup option are really cool features, to be sure—but in the end, it’ll always seem like a cheaper alternative to me. The motor just doesn’t have the power, the amount of steady thrusting speeds, or the stroke length that I’ve come to expect from my thrusting dildos. The vibration option helps…but I’m pretty easy to please with vibration intensity, and I’ll admit that the Thrust-Her’s higher speeds are not rumbly.

If you have lower expectations for your thrusting than I do, then it’s totally possible that you’ll find the Fantasy for Her Love Thrust-Her satisfying. If realistic thrusting isn’t your be-all-and-end-all, and you like nonphallic shapes, then this toy is still body-safe, and of course more affordable than other options (like the abstract Stronic One).
