Review: Uberrime Splendid Vita Soft Silicone Dildo

Uberrime Splendid Vita dildo vs. Uberrime Splendid Dual Density review featured

Gorgeous and soft, the Uberrime Splendid Vita dildo is rocking everything that silicone marbling can be. Its two colors swirl in the most feathery way. Whether you’re a sex toy collector or you just want a comfortable go-to dildo, the Uberrime Splendid Vita makes sense.

It’s not only a display item: The Splendid Vita by Uberrime Dildos is practical. Made for G-spot / prostate massage, in a gently soft way. It’s not just looks; it’s got brains too (= a big head!). I’m pretty surprised, I’m liking this toy as much as any Uberrime artisan dildo I’ve ever owned (and I’ve got a lot of ’em!).

This Uberrime Splendid review will describe the single-density Splendid Vita, compare it to the earlier dual-density Splendid Medium (it’s the same shape!), and share my experience.

Uberrime Splendid Vita, the Silicone

This Splendid Vita is made of 1 kind of soft silicone (split into two parts and swirled together, for the marble effect). It’s flexible, and the head is forgiving and really nice to squeeze your vag muscles around. (More on that in my experience!) This is a perfect G-spot dildo for folks who get overwhelmed by hardness, like the rigid steel of the Njoy Pure Wand.

If you’re familiar with shore durometer and fantasy silicone, the Uberrime Splendid Vita tests between 1.5 and 3A Shore. That’s harder than an 00-50 “medium” fantasy toy.1 It’s not extra-squishy or SuperSoft, but it’s quite yielding. (Softer than the “firm” 10A density that fantasy makers tend to offer.)

The Splendid Vita by Uberrime Dildos is an interesting contrast with the original dual-density Uberrime Splendid. That dual Splendid has two layers of silicone: a touch softer than the Vita outside, and then with a hard core underneath. All dual-density dildos’ two-layer composition is meant to give the most erect feel: to imitate soft skin plus hardness.

Seriously, I get why you might buy the Splendid Dual (left; also comes in other 2-color splits): for consistent G-spot/prostate pressure. But WHOA, the marbling in Splendid Vita is better eye candy.

And that’s cool, I love realistic dils. But what if you just like soft and flexible, no hard core? Dildos that squish and that really bend with your hole as you move them? SquarePegToys SuperSoft (realistic dildos & lots of butt plugs) and fantasy toy extra-soft silicone densities are made for that preference.

The Splendid Vita is something of a mid-point: pretty darn soft, but not gummy-squishy. It’s best with fast rubbing or clenching around (especially in tandem with a clit toy). Or for anyone who gets overstimulated by firm cores in dual dildos. Firmness preferences vary so widely individually: I’ve heard about the same dildo from different folks that it was both (1) too hard and (2) not enough pressure to be effective. That’s why Uberrime and I went with this (a) definitely soft, but (b) not mega-soft density for the Splendid Vita. More on that…

The Splendid Vita Story?

Here’s how a beautiful dildo is born: Uberrime’s founder Marco saw that I was reviewing a Vac-U-Lock fucking machine and, helpfully, offered to redo his Large Splendid to accommodate that Vac hole attachment—he’d gotten multiple requests for a Vac-compatible toy before.

So we looked at colors. I considered some of Uberrime’s recent work, on the Twitter feed, and was drawn to a shining royal purple. What would compliment it well? I wondered. I saw that the color’s name was “NOLA purple” (NOLA being shorthand for New Orleans, Louisiana), and I immediately thought of Bourbon Street and Mardi Gras. Laissez les bon temps rouler, and all. I could use more of that spirit in 2020.

So purple, and most purple shining in the sunlight.

So I asked Marco to pour a Splendid Vac hole in NOLA purple and this greeny-teal with silver glitter that Uberrime calls “Pearl Aqua.”

I chose two Carnival-esque colors—they reminded me of Mardi Gras—because I wanted to say, “This dildo looks glorious, your sex is uniquely beautiful, and we all gotta find the time to celebrate in life.”

And that toy did turn out glorious, and I got reader compliments on the color scheme. But the Large Splendid is 2 inches wide, with a big bulb of a head and pretty loooong too… And not everyone wants that much.

The medium Splendid mold is already large-headed enough, 1.7 inches wide at its G-spot-targeting ridge.

I like the medium Splendid’s shape best anyway, to be honest. So we asked Marco to pour that original Uberrime Splendid in the 2-color purple + green-teal-silver. 2–3A Shore was picked because it is, again, soft but not ultra-squishy—and it’s much easier to do a crisp, swirling marble consistently if the silicone isn’t super-soft.

I wanted the feathery marbled effect, befitting the Mardi Gras theme. So the first Splendid Vita was born, and heading my way in the mail soon…

OMG, feathery.

Splendid Unboxing…

I was excited to see how this new Uberrime Splendid had turned out! Especially because marbled silicone has a mind of its own—no handmade silicone toy poured in multiple colors will ever be the same as its friends from the same batch.

The Uberrime Splendid Vita comes packaged in a sealed plastic bag with the Uberrime logo and product name. Just open it right up and admire it… I started taking pictures right away, and wanted to show the world how good-looking this platinum silicone toy was.

Just pulled out right next to the rug under my kitchen table.

It’s so pleasing just to turn the toy around and around, see what the rippled marble is doing on every side. Every angle is different. And the base has Uberrime’s characteristic flowery-outline swirls.

My Uberrime Splendid Vita turned out with an almost-solid-purple head! I like that; the feathery marbling really takes hold right above the coronal ridge, leaving the tip that vibrant purple-purple. So purple, and shiny.

So I squeezed it in my hands, tested the density, then washed off my Splendid Vita with soap and water—and went to work!

My Experience

The Splendid Vita, like the original Uberrime Splendid, has a forward curve and a ridge that juts out to push and pull on your spot: G-spot or prostate.

As noted, it is much more flexible than the original, so it’s closer to a fantasy dildo than to the firmer dildos you’ll still see mostly produced (en masse) by large sex toy manufacturers.2 If you do want the most consistent pressure while thrusting, then I recommend the original Splendid dual-density still.

The 2 to 3A density of the Splendid Vita, in this 1.7 inch diameter, is spot-on for being squeezable but not too wiggly.3

The Splendid Vita’s shaft bends quite a bit as I thrust, faster and faster. I enjoy that because the shaft can stimulate the front of my vaginal mouth (tons of nerve endings there) as well as wrap around to massage underneath my clit. Those are my favorite hot spots: G-spot + front vag mouth + below-the-clit. And the Splendid Vita is getting them all.

đź“– TIP: The Splendid Vita’s silicone finish is smooth, but soft silicone tends to absorb lube more than firmer toys. I highly recommend Simply Hybrid Jelle to reduce friction if you’re a thrusting fan.

I jiggle and move the Splendid’s head to the ridge is tugging down on my G-spot and I feel its size. In short bursts, I go faster… occasionally slow down… and enjoy the soft pulling. And the size of the head.

Imagine going over the dropoff of a tall roller coaster, but without any fear. Just adrenaline. That’s how it is for me as I realize I’m about to orgasm on this Splendid dildo, and I “fall over the edge” and savor the ride.

Even more revelry follows as I take a break from the thrusting and pull out a favorite vibrator, the Pillow Talk Sassy by BMS.

*SO* happy together.

Especially since the Splendid Vita is soft, many users will want to pair it with a clit toy for orgasmic results. The Pillow Talk Sassy is technically a G-spotter, and I use it vaginally all the time, but it’s so, so good as a clit toy too. The rumbly vibes work either way, your call.

Here with the Uberrime Splendid Vita, I keep it inserted and pull it out, so an inch of shaft remains below my labia and there’s room for the Pillow Talk Sassy’s curved head.

Move the tip of Sassy’s head side to side, over the clit; rub it up and down a little. And feel the different sensations. The best orgasms I’ve had with this pair together are by turning Sassy’s head backward, so it’s all broad and flat with the rumbling vibes traveling through my clit, and I’m squeezing on the Splendid Vita’s head internally. Yes!

Lots of variety possible with this combo, as I like to move back to jiggling the Splendid’s head against my G-spot with steady clit vibes after that. Or, I can always pull Splendid out and get just G-spot vibration going!

If you want to check out both at once too, find the Splendid Vita + Sassy bundle here.

The Uberrime Splendid is long enough that, if desired, I can also go a little deeper. I get light A-spot + cervical stim from thrusting deep, for example, or just keeping the Splendid Vita’s full 6 inches inserted.

The veiny shaft textures (long ripples running down Splendid’s front) feel a little less promiment in the Splendid Vita, with the soft silicone. The biggest swirly-curved-vein, an inch above the base in front, is very light vulva stimulation that I notice if I slow down and focus on it, but won’t notice when either (1) moving the Splendid Vita fast or (2) keeping it still.

The smooth, big-ridged head is no doubt the most noticeable feature of this dildo. Again, for rubbing on G- / P-spot.

Still dying over the colors. And the soft head.

A lot of fantasy dildos aren’t designed for G-spot stimulation, so it’s really sweet to have this soft option for gentler spot pressure. And I’ve mentioned the ridge, right?! My G-spot has definite opinions about dildo head size and shape—the head is almost always the critical part of a sex toy for me. And the Splendid Vita’s protruding corona here, in the yielding silicone, meets my standards.

It’s so comfortable—soothing even—I swear to you that I feel asleep using it last night (a good thing, because I needed sleep) … and woke up feeling great.

On Soft Platinum Silicone: Care

Uberrime Dildos only creates toys from platinum silicone that’s been tested skin-safe.4 Cosmetic pigments are safely blended within, and fully encapsulated, inside the platinum-grade silicone.

For general use, you can just wash the Uberrime Splendid Vita with normal soap and water. As with any silicone toy, antibacterial soap or toy cleaner is not needed, as long as you have acccess to running water.

If you want to deep-clean, follow any of these methods.

As a soft toy, the Splendid Vita has more dimethicone (silicone oil) in its silicone structure. So you may want to refrain from storing / drying this Uberrime Splendid on top of thin-coated silicone vibrators like Sassy or the We-Vibe Melt. The vibe could absorb a little of the silicone oil and its surface may bubble temporarily.

Mine’s got a lil tiny nick out of the base silicone. No worries, still 100% safe.

And as a handmade item, the Splendid will have a few nicks / lines / irregularities in the base ring (it’s hard to get that perfect circle!). Since the entire body of a silicone toy is nonporous, surface dents or nicks don’t affect safety. This toy should hold up to use for literal decades.

Overall Uberrime Splendid V. Thoughts

The Uberrime Splendid Vita bundles aesthetic appeal and orgasms. It’s named “Vita” (= life) with the thought that, “What is life for, if we can’t find beauty and pleasure amidst it?” I asked for lots of feathery marbling, for a Mardi Gras theme.

This soft silicone toy is more flexible than the original Uberrime Splendid, so I’m loving thrusting it fast and feeling the shaft bend to massage under my clit. Meanwhile, the G-spotty head is there to be rocked and squeezed around. Also, I 100% suggest pairing the Vita’s squishy head with a good clit vibe (including Pillow Talk Sassy externally!) for the most oooomph.

NOTES

  1. The 00 scale tests softer things than the A scale, so the 00-50 often called just “5” in fantasy circles is very different from 5A shore density.
  2. Like my first realistic silicone dildo purchase, part of the Colours Pleasures line by NS Nov. However, this is changing, as big makers are starting to produce softer silicone, it’s so popular.
  3. I like my dildos that are less than 2 inches wide to be soft but not as soft as an 00-50 fantasy toy: silicone in the same density/firmness feels harder the wider it gets. And for average-size toys (closer to 1.5 inches diameter, median penis width), 00-50 is simply floppy for me.
  4. Smooth-On products tested ISO (International Organization of Standardization) 10993-10, tests for skin sensitization / long-term safety for keeping the material on human skin. This is the closest we have to body-safe certification, since sex toys are not regulated by government agencies—nor do we want them to be, as government regulation would substantially raise toy prices, kill smaller & indie brands, and likely create a steaming pile of unnecessary bureaucracy.

    I do not know why, but looking at Uberrime Splendid Vita I remembered the movie Avatar. Beauty is a terrible power.
