Uberrime Splendid – Sex Toy Review
I think it’s time I just admit it… I have become obsessed with all things Uberrime. I mean, never mind that the owner and sole dildo maestro of the operation is super awesome… he could be a complete dick and I would still have to admit (although maybe a bit more grudgingly) to loving his toys. Thankfully, he is not a dick at all and I can feel good about screaming this at the top of my lungs: I LOVE MY UBERRIME DILDOS! And just in case you have been living under a rock these last couple of months and have completely missed all of my Uberrime reviews… here is everything I have written to date and in chronological order! I started with the Night King (part of my Spooky Month Countdown) a pretty sweet Game of Thrones themed dildo, which then lead me to the Calaveras which was also part of Spooky Month (it has skulls for balls, its pretty badass), then came the Dr. Manhattan and finally I reviewed the Jellyfish 2.0 just a few weeks ago. So as you can see, I’ve had a pretty good run of excellent Uberrime dildos. Today’s dildo doesn’t have skulls for balls… in fact it doesn’t have any balls at all, and it doesn’t tie into any fandom of any sort, and isn’t any kind of sea creature or other novelty shape… nope… the Uberrime Splendid is just a super functional, kind of vaguely penis shaped toy… and yet it is still amazing… in fact, this might be my most favorite Uberrime toy yet!
I was super-duper pleased when I received my Splendid and realized that it was one of them squish-tastic dual-density dildos! Meaning this toy has a soft exterior of squishy silicone around a core of much firmer silicone. A lot of the dual-density toys I have use it to mimic the look and feel of a real penis (for example, look at my VixSkin Goodfella), although the Splendid is only semi-realistic (unlike that aforementioned Goodfella), what with those rather exaggerated bulging veins and non-human colors. I also feel like the size and shape of this toy is pretty much perfect, it has a total length of 6 inches with 5.5 of those inches being insertable length, making it pretty average in length. Girth-wise w are looking at an average shaft diameter of 1.6 inches reaching a maximum diameter of 1.67 inches, which again feels pretty average to me (or maybe just slightly above average) for girth. The shaft of the Splended flares out to a nice wide base, making it perfectly safe for anal use (also… it’s AMAZING for anal use) and it fits into both of my harnesses. It also has a beautiful forward curve and a prominent mushroom head which really makes it perfectly suited for both g-spot and prostate stimulation. What more does a person really need out of a dildo?! I mean… if a dildo could stimulate both the g-spot, prostate AND have time to clean my house… that would be a pretty awesome dildo… but the Splendid is pretty great as is.
Besides just the general shape of the Splendid, I am also SUPER obsessed with its color. This toy is probably in my top five favorite colored dildos… I love it that much. The two color transition is expertly executed and looks freakin’ amazing. My Splendid is the Pearl Pink to Pearl White, which is a strongly pink head that fades out into a lovely pearl white with still just a hint of pink around the base… I can’t imagine a dildo more lovely. The whole toy gives me very strong candy vibes (specifically cotton candy) and gives me a niggling nostalgic feeling of like… some kind of strawberries and cream flavor that I can’t quite place… but must be some kind of candy I adored in my childhood. And of course, if you are not a fan of pink in your sex toys, other colors are offered. Peepshow Toys also carries two other color splits – Amethyst Purple to Pearl White and Sapphire Blue to Pearl White. Now, should you need a toy that is just a little bit easier on the wallet, the Splendid is also available in single colors (although the price difference between a split color and a single color medium is currently only like $10, which isn’t a huge savings… but hey… money is money).
Also worth noting, at the time of receiving the Uberrime Splendid, there was only one size option for the Splendid, what you see here in this review is all there was. But in the time between receiving it and writing this review Uberrime has added some size choices (who doesn’t love having more options?!)! My Splendid, the one featured in this review, would be a Medium. So you can now go a size larger or a size smaller than this one! I would TOTALLY love to get my hands on a large… because… vagina science reason.
The toy is made from silicone (everything Uberrime currently does is silicone) so it is easy to wash, nonporous, phthalate free… all the good stuff. The silicone also has a kind of draggy matte quality to it, it doesn’t have that extreme stickiness to it that some dildos do, but it does manage to attract every piece of stray dust in my entire house. But, because its silicone it is super easy to clean… run it under some water, toss it into the dishwasher (no soap), boil it, use a 10% bleach solution on it… whatever you want… silicone is pretty rad this way. Also, because silicone… avoid silicone based lubes to avoid the possibility of damaging your toy (I’m sure you’ve heard that bit of advice about a hundred times already). Also, since we are talking silicone, I might as well toss this little fact out there… in case anyone is SUPER interesting in knowing exactly what firmness this toy is… The soft outer layer of the Splendid is made using Ecoflex Shore 0050 while the firm inner core is Dragon Skin Shore 20. Also, because the toy is hand poured, your Splendid may vary somewhat from my Splendid… no two toys are going to be exactly the same!
The Uberrime Splendid lives up to its name… it is indeed quite splendid. I can whole heartedly recommend this dildo. If you are looking for a dual density dildo but maybe want something less realistic than say the Vixen Creation VixSkin toys or you are after a nice girthy toy I think the Splendid is exactly what you are looking for. Also, a great dildo for the texture lovers out there… those veins are seriously delightful. It also worked out very well for my in my harnesses, the flat chunky base sat really comfortably in the harness for me and the toy is firm enough that it didn’t buckle or behave oddly (I’ve got some floppy soft dicks that just don’t behave in a harness), so if you are looking for something to use in a harness… again, can’t recommend this one enough. What more can I possibly say…it is just all around a great dildo! Give the Splendid a try, I think you’ll like it.
The Uberrime Splendid is a Peepshow Toys exclusive, you won’t be seeing this on the shelves of any other sex shop! But don’t worry, they are excellent people and will get you a Splendid in no time flat! Also, if you use the code KITTEN at checkout, you’ll get an extra 10% off!
