Okay, so this review will be directly comparing the product to my only previous sex toy, the popular Fleshlight. I have a Fleshlight Raven Riley girls model and it's been a faithful companion when the wife isn't in the mood, but rather than just get the same again, I went to look for something slightly different rather than just identical.
I first tried (and surprisingly didn't like) a Fleshlight Sex in a Can product, but as usual LH were amazing and was able to sort a return for that, and then I started looking at the utensil race (also known as "Meiki" I now know) stuff from Japan. The reason I returned the 2nd Fleshlight product was it was just too tight for me, and I'm not big downstairs... So when checking out other stuff, I was really looking at the canal diameter rather than length so much. The Fleshlight product I have is a Wonder Wave with canal diameter of 0.5 inches, and most of the Utensil Race ones I saw said they were just 0.25 inches, so I wasn't sure.... Then I came across (and later inside, pun intended!) this Zhang Xiao Yu model which said it had a canal diameter 0.5 and I decided to go for it.
It shipped and arrived next day as usual (bravo LH!), and I couldn't wait to give it a try. First impressions are excellent - the box is beautiful and looks very well finished, and then when you take the product out, there is the slight expected new sex product smell, but which isn't a bad smell by any means and I'm sure will disappear over time.
It's gorgeous to look at - really it is... What a great job they have done in moulding Xiao's pussy. The ultra soft feel of the skin is great, and then when you part the labia to see that darkening pink inside and reach in to rub your fingers along the canal insides, it's truly amazing.
Using it was very, very easy. Just a little lube needed on the entrance and on your old chap, and if you're anything like I was you'll be stiff as a board instantly and will be inside it faster than a chav at a Primark sale. And wow does it feel good. It is very soft and pliant and when it warms up to you, you can close your eyes and imagine what you like, because my friend you have what feels like a real pussy on you, and that's the bottom line. It really is that good.
Now nothing's perfect, so I do have just two minor grumbles - I wish they would put a hard casing on it, even if just as an option, so when using it by hand, wank-fashion, it would be much easier to handle. It's not the end of the world, but it's something I'd like to see. The second, and this is my own fault, not the products, is I wish it was just a tad tighter. Just a tiny, tiny bit. On purposely picking out a 0.5 inch canal and now knowing just how much softer and more pliant this is compared to a Fleshlight, I found that the 0.5 inch canal, whilst amazing, could have been just that bit tighter. So like I say - not the products fault at all. I will certainly have no hesitation now in getting another utensil race product and will definitely go for their 0.25inch canal now, confident that it shouldn't be too tight like that sex in a can thing.
Cleaning is very, very simple. Just some hot water (add a tiny bit of mild soap or some dedicated sex toy cleaning product, your choice) and a quick run through of the fingers inside it, then leave it to dry. No problems at all.
Overall, I can barely see anything wrong with this, so what are you waiting for? If you've had even a passing interest in this kind of thing, then I promise you, you will not be disappointed if you make this your first product.
