When I bought the Vixen Creations Mustang, I was honestly only thinking about aesthetics. I had already tried two dual density dildos and wasn’t wow’ed by the texture, so I thought that a third dildo wouldn’t change that. What drew me to the Mustang was the idea of a realistic dildo in a non-realistic colour. Previously, my primary consideration in dildos was “How will this feel when I’m strapping on?”, with my own use a secondary consideration. Now, though, I buy dildos for myself and any strap on use they see is an added bonus. So, I wanted something that looked pretty, and that meant a deviation from the pale flesh tones I used to prefer. When I received the Mustang, for that reason, I was disappointed. Rather than a mixture of different colours, the colours on my Mustang were three very straight, discrete lines. There were no waves, and only a few flecks of a different colour interspersed between the big blocks. But the Mustang has sky rocketed, against the odds, to my favourite dildo. Over time, I’ve even started to love the colours. While they aren’t intermingled perfectly, they still look lovely in natural light, and are bright and inviting. In my end of 2016 post, I wrote that I felt guilty about liking squishy dildos. First of all, most marketing says that these dildos are more “realistic”, and I loathe the implication – or sometimes outright statement – that dildos can somehow replace a flesh and blood person. But mostly, it’s the feeling that softer dildos are somehow juvenile, that I should have moved on. If my goal is G-spot orgasm, I adore my literally hard-as-nails njoy Pure Wand, but if I’m just relaxing, I usually want something softer, and dual density does the trick. Another thing that should make me and the Mustang incompatible is that fundamentally, I am a lazy masturbator. I pick the strongest vibrator and the closest dildo, and I get the job done quick. Now that I’m growing my collection, I try to opt for something with a bit more finesse, or with an interesting sensation, like the Pure Wand or the Eroscillator, but that has to be a conscious choice. If left to my natural inclinations, it’s just me, a set it and forget it dildo, and the Doxy Wand. There are two things to notice about the Vixen Creations Mustang – I have to clean it every damn time, and I use it anyway.
So why do I keep coming back? First of all, I was wrong about all dual density toys being the same. I love the Mustang’s squish. I think Vixen Creations’ Vixskin is softer than Tantus O2, but with a thinner outer layer than on the New York Toy Collective pack and plays. Because of this, I don’t like the Mustang as a set it and forget it dildo as much as I like the Shilo for that purpose. There is less for my PC muscles to squeeze around, so I need to thrust it for the best experience. The Mustang, instead, shines in the way it interacts with my G spot. The Mustang is very adept at finding my G spot, with a very pronounced curve, and it gives me a gentler kind of stimulation than I get from something hard like the Pure Wand. It gives me the pressure I want from a G spot toy, but without the worry of accidentally jabbing the wrong spot or catching on my pubic bone. Also, the Mustang stimulates the rest of my vaginal walls with its perfect size. 1.5 inches is an easy feat for me without warm up, feeling just full enough, without any pain on insertion. Even though the Shilo and the Mustang are the same size, I don’t feel like I need to upsize after a while of using the Mustang. Sure, it can help if I want to use something like the Tantus Cush, but most of the time I’m happy with just using the Mustang alone. Another plus to the Mustang is the part just under the head that looks like a folded down foreskin, which rubs against my vaginal walls when the head is focused on my g spot. This is a nice bit of texture that stimulates a sensitive part of my body that often goes ignored. I want more dildo manufacturers to give some thought to the rest of the front vaginal walls other than the G spot, because there are still a lot of pleasurable sensations that can originate in that area. The ridge under the foreskin gives the same tugging sensation that I get from a coronal ridge, so it doesn’t have to just rely on the texture of the dildo alone. I love thrusting with the Mustang, because the combination of the G spot curve, the extra stimulation for the front walls, and the softness of Vixskin means that I get the best of of the dildo when it’s moving.
Just a note on cleaning: the Mustang has a somewhat sticky texture, and attracts dust and hair like no dildo I have ever seen. I need to wash it before use, and give it a thorough scrub with a soft toothbrush afterwards, to clean out the fine texture. However, it is quality silicone, and can be boiled to be disinfected. If you are going to use the Mustang, you have to be prepared to clean it, but I love it enough that I’m able to get over this downside. Another thing that is a little annoying is that the Mustang is equipped with a suction cup, but I find that this suction cup is entirely defunct, as it fails after a few seconds, even on something as smooth as a mirror. It provides some suction on a flat surface when gravity is working with it, but I find the angle is a bit awkward then, and the Mustang doesn’t follow the natural curve of my vaginal canal.
If 1.5 inches is your girth sweet spot too, you like softer materials but haven’t tried Vixskin, or you’re craving a softer kind of G spot stimulation, the Mustang is right up your alley. I honestly think that if I had to choose one dildo for life, this would be it.
