The idea is sound, but it wasn't for us. Submitted 1/7/2009
Well, the Mrs. enjoys a little light anal pleasure, when the mood strikes. The small dildo is about one inch wide (as big around as a quarter). We felt that the 4” (slightly longer than an average index finger) dildo would give us exactly the mild DP experience we were looking to try. We found that, while for some it may do exactly what is desired, for us, it fell a little short. The short dildo is adjustable, allowing the users to pose the bend of the dildo to target the most sensitive spots. This is due to the “ball in socket” style joints inside the shaft. You can bend and twist it to whatever shape you desire, length permitting. When we took ours out of the packaging, we attempted to bend the shaft a little, and one of the ball-socket joints popped, and was dislocated. This didn’t make the toy unusable, but it did create a semi-flaccid, somewhat floppy frustration. Being only able to slightly bend in a couple of places, and having the middle of the shaft very flexible, it was just too bendy. Also, the ring that slides over the man’s penis is not very stretchy. This does a few things. For one, it makes it so that it has minimal risk for moving around while in use, which is a good thing. It also made it a bit difficult for me to slide it on. I’m larger than average, so I had to use a generous amount of lube just to get it on. After that bit of difficulty, we gave it a go. Upon penetration, I attempted to turn the small vibrator on, which no longer worked. I’m unsure as to the condition of the batteries, but we just turned it on for the first time a few minutes prior. I’m sure that with time we’ll try it again, and I’ll change the batteries beforehand. Once we got it in and had given up on the vibrator, I began thrusting slowly. As with many of these DP toys, the Double Diver didn’t do much thrusting. Instead, it sat inside her hole, and the ring bent with each thrust, leaving the little dildo in place. The feeling of fullness was still pleasant for her, but full functionality would have been nice. For us, once again, the size of my penis has hindered the overall appeal of yet another possibly very nice sex toy. So, the Double Diver will probably be another dust collector in our bedroom. We can see the potential, for a man with an average to smaller penis, to have an easier time pleasing his woman with the Double Diver. Unfortunately for us, it didn’t make the cut.
