Marital Aid Test Kitchen: The Curve (The Best Dildo Ever?)

Feb 06, 2008 | Posted by Lux Alptraum in Editorial Features

2008_02_06_curve1.jpgWhen we think of innovative sex toys, we rarely think of dildos. Unlike their vibrating sisters (brothers?), dildos tend to be pretty predictable: they mostly come in one shape, with limited variation in width and girth. Hence my delight at discovering the Curve, a uniquely shaped silicone dildo unlike any I've seen before -- and I've seen a lot of them. With a pleasing form that proves that a sex toy doesn't need a motor to put a little buzz in your step, the Curve may just be my new favorite sex toy.

Though it looks a bit odd—phrases like "sea monster penis" and "Gonzo's dick" come to mind—an initial test drive showed that the Curve is definitely built for pleasure. Its bumps and lumps hit all the right spots, and the curved handle (get it?) makes it easy to rock back and forth, allowing you to find just the right angle for maximum enjoyment.

I realize that there may be unbelievers out there—those among you who cannot possibly imagine a dildo that could ever match the experience of your favorite vibrator. To you I say: I was like you once. Then I spent time with the Curve and about eight hours (and countless orgasms) later, I was finally able to pry it out of my hands and get back to work.

Yes. It's that good.

There is one down side to the Curve's design—what works well for solo play can lead to awkwardness in the hands of a partner. Though the handle makes playing alone ever so easy, its angle is a bit too sharp to be comfortably maneuvered by another person.

Other details to note: the Curve is made of silicone, which means it can be easily washed with soap and water, and—if you're good about cleaning—can be used as both a vaginal and anal toy (or shared with a trusted partner). For the best experience, we recommend using lubricant. The toy comes with a sample pack of Fun Factory Toy Fluid lube, but any water-based lubricant will do the job just fine. (Remember to avoid silicone-based lubricants, however, as these will destroy the toy and make you cry tears of salty regret.)
