Review: T.O.M. (The Other Man) v.2 Mount

I’ve reviewed a lot of suction cup dildos in the last year. I’ve also told you all about my adventures in sticking them all over my house. But until about six weeks ago, I had yet to try the popular T.O.M. suction cup dildo mount, which is now on its second version. Would T.O.M. v. 2 be a worthwhile addition to my hands-free explorations?

Comfort and Height Concerns

The T.O.M. mount is right around 7″ tall, so taller than some torsos are high when lying flat. But…an actual person has hips, right? And with T.O.M., there’s really nothing to rest my weight on when I’m mounting a dildo on the top surface. T.O.M.’s top section is, well…boxy, so I don’t enjoy grinding my ass against it. That’s why I prefer that the dildos I mount on top of it: (1) be longer than average or (2) have balls that keep my butt cheeks from hitting those back corners.

That’s why I have two favorite dildo picks for mounting on top of T.O.M., both of which are body-safe platinum silicone (unlike most dildos you’ll find on Amazon). Those are:

  1. Blush Novelties’ Avant Ergo, a really affordable dual-density silicone dildo. I’d mostly forgotten about my Ergo until I got my T.O.M., when I discovered how fun it is to ride this toy! (Before I’d tried suction-cupping it to the wall, and the angle wasn’t working for me.)
  2. NS Novelties’ ColourSoft dildos (my review here), because they’re among the softest realistic silicone dildos on the market.1

I used the ColourSoft 5″ with great success on the top of the mount! The flexible silicone lets me lean forward very comfortably, for better G-spot stim, plus I can easily take the 5″ length. And aaah! squishy balls.

I also tried the ColourSoft 8″, which I absolutely love stuck to a particular wall in my house, on top of T.O.M.—but the length was just a bit much for me. This brings me to my next point: height.

If you have long legs (or are a guy wanting an anal mount!), a taller mount like the Easy Squat may be more your speed. (Keep in mind it only takes Vac-u-Lock dildos, however: thick, at 1.9 inches diameter minimum.)

I’ve scoured all the Amazon reviews of T.O.M., looking for people’s opinions on why the mount worked or didn’t work for them. Now, a good number of these reviews don’t give any particular reason for why the buyer wrote, “Works as advertised,” “Great,” or “Don’t waste your money.”

But I did notice a pattern: shorter folks (like one woman who said she was 5’2″) seem to have a problem using the top mount comfortably. In contrast, people who identify as taller (like maybe 5’7″ and up) have problems with the angled side mounts. I agree, because I cannot use the two angled sides without sticking a pillow under T.O.M. But, I put a flatter pillow under T.O.M., and then I can move my 5’8″ frame back and forth for some doggy-style screwing.

My Best T.O.M. Experience

I got into self-thrusting dildos after I first wrote this review. Some are mini fucking machines that do all the motion for you. So I was pretty excited when I finally got one with a good suction cup, the Maia Max Thrusting Vibrator. But Max (and its purple version, Monroe) are so abstract, and my vag wants realistic.

Enter the Velvet Thruster, a handheld mini sex machine with a suction base. Turns out, the mini version, Teddy, is the best when I mount it on top of T.O.M. Pull out some long-lasting lube, put a few pillows in front of T.O.M. for me to brace myself against, and I’m getting screwed for half an hour, easy, with basically no effort on my part. YES. Find a video of Teddy thrusting while stuck to T.O.M. on my YouTube!
