CalExotics Silicone Grip Thruster Cheap Silicone Dildo

My request for the CalExotics Silicone Grip Thruster was a mistake. A misreading, to be exact.

I was so focused on the word “thruster” that I didn’t realize that CalExotics expected me to do the work. MYSELF. I’m so used to self-propelled thrusting dildos like the Velvet Thrusters that I couldn’t conceive of a toy without a motor being called a “thruster” too.

Instead my thoughts ran along these lines:

“A thruster, from CalEx? Hmm.” *scrunches eyebrows slightly & clicks on listing*

“OMG it’s only $25? What kind of piece of shit IS this thing?”1

*skims listing too quickly and reads,* “You or your partner will be able to easily control thrust speed, depth and intensity…”

*me, still assuming this toy has a motor:* “Hahaha! We’ll see about that, for $25!!!”2

Point being: if a listing doesn’t include specific numbers related to vibration or thrusting functions, always assume it does NOT in fact have a motor.

So naturally the CalExotics Silicone Grip Thruster showed up at my door, in all its non-thrusting glory. (Or lack thereof.) It’s a plain silicone dildo with a handle, you see.

Slightly smaller and shorter than average dildo/penis size, the Silicone Grip Thruster is meant for HARD, targeted pressure. It’s actually the firmest silicone dildo in my large collection.3

To make matters worse for my vag, the silicone lacks a gentle finish, like that of the equally affordable Blush Ruse dildos. Blush silicone toys have a satin feel that I’d opt for literally any day of the week. With the Silicone Grip Thruster, in contrast, I feel every skin-like line. And it’s in an overwhelming way, not an exciting one.

Lovers of hard pressure may enjoy this toy more than I did. I don’t think it’s terrible for G-spot stimulation; it’s just not really that good either. I find myself wishing that the Silicone Grip Thruster’s head was a more rounded shape, to tone down the hard silicone. Like the shape of many a glass dildo for that reason.

The handle does seem like an advantage over a similar dildo without. But once you’ve thrust a Pure Wand’s ergonomic curve, there’s truly no going back. Your standards are different.

Hey, we all make mistakes. For my body, the Silicone Grip Thruster was one of those—but I’ve been pampered by so many high-quality dildos. If I was a new sex toy buyer in a not-boutique shop, the silicone toys by CalExotics might truly be one of the only body-safe options—if not the only one. In that case, I’d say, “Buy this affordable toy and some good water-based lube, because it’s so much better for your body than that King Cock or Dillio dildo.”

For anyone who is NOT looking for a realistic & self-propelled thrusting experience—but instead wants truly hard pressure plus a phallic shape—then the Silicone Grip Thruster is worth considering.

You can find the Silicone Grip Thruster’s (somewhat ambiguous) listing here at SheVibe.
