Vixen Creations has been manufacturing 100% Platinum silicone sex toys since 1992. These toys are artfully hand-crafted and most are backed by a lifetime guarantee. I consider these toys to be top quality.
As always, void seals were provided by SheVibe. I love the attention to detail they put into their orders. When I first received my package, each toy was individually wrapped in brown paper. I thought this helped to make the package much more discreet, as well as give a super cute touch. The Sapphire Gemstones also included a company bio on the box itself. This just explains how long Vixen Creations has been in business and about their goal to provide quality handmade products.
The first thing I noticed about the Sapphire Gemstones was how each bead contained a little galaxy of glitter. The second thing I noticed was the size! I expected them to be rather big since I ordered a large. They were a lot smaller than I had hoped for, but still get the job done. The diameter of each bead is 1 1/4 Inches with a circumference of 4 1/4 Inches. – The sizes currently included in the Gemstones lineup are small, medium, large, and extra-large.
Something that really caught my eye with this toy is the literal rope that resides underneath a layer of silicone, which keeps the toy from stretching. This immediately reduces the risk of breaking during play. This feature will keep this toy intact for many future play sessions, and also looks very appealing.
Usually when I feel the urge to use anal beads, it is to satisfy my craving for that intense build-up and release as they slowly pop out one by one. A somewhat similar toy that provides this feeling extremely well is the Sex & Mischief Beads by Sportsheets ($19.99). This one includes 9 beads instead of 6 and is a bit less expensive if you are on a budget!
When choosing this toy, I did not take into account the possibility for depth play. The large sized Gemstones come to exactly 17 Inches. This is very deep when inserted anally and should be viewed with respect and caution. I recommend going very slow. If the beads are fully extended inside you, do not yank them out. You can hurt yourself. Technically this is a toy that was designed for anal stimulation, although I’m sure it could be enjoyed vaginally.
One thing that I find extremely pleasurable about the Gemstones is how they feel when resting inside. I like to put my rear in the air and let them rest on my prostate. Jiggling them and doing whatever necessary to stimulate those areas. I am a huge fan of edging and prostate orgasms, and I really enjoyed finding what felt best with this toy. Once you’ve gotten yourself completely aroused, slowly start removing them one by one, the pleasure will come in waves.
The final piece of this toy I’d like to talk about is the base. More often than not, the base for a set of anal beads is round and used like a ring. I find having a rectangular base not only provided me with discretion but with a better grip. This toy left me wanting more so my only move is to go up a size.
These Sapphire Gemstones by Vixen Creations, were sent to me by the wonderful company SheVibe, in exchange for an honest review of the product. On their website you will find a large selection of toys to choose from, with discounts everywhere. All orders above $75 include free shipping. If you are a reviewer or would like to join, they also have an affiliate program. Shevibe is an awesome company and I will continue working with them in the future. 💕
