Aye, aye Captain! The first thing I thought of when I picked up the box containing the Captain dildo was “holy shit, this is a heavy dick”. In addition to being hefty, it is beautifully crafted and feels amazing.
The Captain is a realistic dildo made by Pleasure Works. It is made of 100% silicone. It is waterproof, hypoallergenic, phthlate free, non-toxic, and non-porous. This dildo is available in four flesh tone color choices – vanilla (light), caramel (medium), coffee (dark), and black. Since these are hand mixed and handmade, there may be slight variations in color.
This dildo arrives in a recyclable box with large pictures of it on the front and back (there is no denying what is inside). The top is sealed with a piece of tape. Once the tape is cut, the top opens easily.
Inside, you will find the Captain in an open-ended clear plastic bag (which I used to store my toy in later). Pull out the dildo and you will notice that there is no crazy ‘new shower curtain’ smell or weird taste thanks to it being made of silicone. Yes, I do the sniff and lick test to be sure… all in the name of good research.
Upon close inspection, I did notice some slight imperfections on the shaft. I also found two tiny pin size holes in the tip of the head. I called Andy Duran, the Educational Outreach & Affiliate Manager at Good Vibrations, to see what the deal was. I am happy to say that he was wonderfully helpful – and quick too. He explained that the tiny holes are from air bubbles that sometimes occur in silicone toys and are not the norm.
The Captain is quite substantial in size, measuring 7 1/2″ in length and 1 7/8″ in diameter. The girth is large enough that when I wrap my hand around the shaft, my fingers meet but don’t overlap.
The thick straight shaft features textured veins and a pronounced coronal ridge to stimulate the g spot during thrusting. The sculpted head adds to the realistic look (though I haven’t seen many real life cocks this size). This dildo has a matte finish. It feels firm, yet soft and smooth to the touch. It flexes enough that I can make a rainbow shape but not enough for the tip to touch the base.
The flared base makes it harness compatible and safe for anal play. When I tried it with my harness, I realized that I need a larger o-ring. It is not suction cup compatible.
I really like this dildo! The pronounced ridge where the head meets the shaft gave great stimulation during thrusting. The veiny shaft added a texture that I could feel internally. I like that the wide base made it easy to use during solo play. I wasn’t able to take the entire length during penetration, but the added length did make it easy to keep a grip. I wasn’t brave enough to try this toy anally, so it only saw pussy play.
I recommend using a good water-based lubricant with this toy. Since silicone lubes have been known to destroy silicone toys, spot test it first if you decide to use one.
To clean the Captain, it can be boiled or washed in the top rack of the dishwasher (no soap). You can also wash it with antibacterial soap and water or your favorite toy cleaner. There are no cracks or crevices. The only concern I have is the two small holes in the tip. I guess boiling would be the best way to ensure they get clean too, but finding a pot big enough to accommodate it might be difficult.
Pros: body safe, pronounced coronal ridge, larger girth, harness compatible
Cons: holes in the tip (thankfully not the norm)
Score: 8 out of 10
