Center Stage Sexual Aid: Maverick by Vixen Creations

November 08, 2012

Every week, The CSPH takes a look at a sexual aid that can be just so helpful for some people, that it needs to be highlighted. This week’s sexual aid is the Maverick by Vixen Creations.

How does the product work?

The Maverick, by Vixen Creations, is one big cowboy. With seven inches of insertable length, the Maverick boasts a two inch diameter and a six inch circumference. It features a base that is non-slip, for use with O-ring harnesses, and an integrated suction cup, for slick hard surfaces, expanding the world of possibilities for partner or solo play.

Though this bad boy is a revival of classic large, bent, realistic-style dildos, it utilizes new VixSkin silicone technology. The Maverick is durable and body friendly, phthalate-free, and will not break down or degrade if used properly, with non-silicone lubricants.

This handsome toy feels luxurious to the touch as it moves much like real skin when manipulated, and also warms and retains body heat. Complete with little textural details, such as fine lines, the life-like VixSkin envelops a solid inner core that ensures your Maverick always stands rigid and at attention.

Available in an array of fabulous colors—like neon green, neon pink, neon tie-dye, and three different skin-toned options—the Maverick is guaranteed by a lifetime warranty from Vixen Creations.

Important things to note:

You’d like to know some more about VixSkin, you say? VixSkin is a new line of realistic-feeling, skin-like dildos that are made from 100% Platinum silicone. Not only is this the safest quality of silicone available for toys, but it offers a high degree of flexibility and resists tearing. Where plastic might crack, rubber can disintegrate, and “jelly” is toxic, VixSkin is a new solution offering both safety and realism. Molecules of a special silicone “lubricant” are suspended between the molecules of silicone itself, creating more elasticity and a more realistic feel. However, this also makes it completely unsafe to use with silicone-based lubes, which will dissolve the VixSkin. With it’s more rigid core, the dual density of the Maverick also contributes to a delightfully firm yet flexible ride. VixSkin also transmits vibrations quite nicely.

Because of its somewhat ambitious size, the Maverick may not be right for all users. While not unrealistic, it does represent the larger end of what could be considered the “realistically sized phallus” spectrum. However, bigger isn’t necessarily always better. This toy is rather girthy, featuring a large glans and a quite prominent corona; some individuals might find it too long or thick, or feel that the bulbous head and ridge “catch” on the pubic bone. Users might want to consider experimenting with different types of (water-based!) lubes to enhance their Maverick playtime experience. Because of its flared base, the Maverick is safe for anal play, without having to worry about it getting lost inside the rectum.

Those Maverick users who also happen to love pets may find that it makes an excellent pet hair magnet when dry. The tacky quality of the silicone has a wonderful propensity to attract fuzz and lint, and also serves as a wonderful surrogate chew toy when your curious furry friend cannot find its own. So be sure to keep inquisitive creatures away, store your Maverick in a place out of reach of cute creatures, and wash it thoroughly before and after use. Another option to help keep it dust- and fur-free between uses is to store it inside of a bit of cling wrap.

Since the Maverick is made of silicone, it is quite important to only use water-based lubricants. Silicone-based lube will dissolve and degrade the VixSkin silicone, leave a sticky mess, and void the product warranty.

Keeping it clean:

While it is still important to love your Maverick by taking proper care of it and keeping it clean, it is nice to know that it is chemically impossible for bacteria to impregnate the silicone. The Maverick’s VixSkin is non-porous, so it can be cleaned with simple antibacterial soap and warm water, or sterilized by boiling for three minutes. You could even toss it in the dishwasher! If sharing your Maverick with a partner, or alternating between anal and vaginal use, be sure to put a condom or toy cover over it, or wash it in between uses.

If you’re looking for something with versatility for solo or partner play options, a toy with a luscious feel, made from 100% body safe silicone, durability, some sassy colors, and a thick ride, the Maverick could be a lovely addition to your toy collection. While its large size might be splendid for some, it could also be intimidating or uncomfortable for others. A similar product that might appeal to some users is the Mistress by Vixen Creations, which bears all the same fun benefits as the Maverick, but in a slightly smaller package (6 inches tall and 1 ¼ inches in diameter).
