Center Stage Sexual Aid: Sqweel 2

December 27, 2012
The CSPH

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 Lovehoney’s Sqweel 2!
.
How does this product work?
.
The Sqweel 2 takes all of the original Sqweel’s unique qualities and amplifies them to another level. Sqweel 2 consists of a silicone wheel with 10 smooth silicone tongue-like flaps. With the click of a button, the wheel spins, creating an oral-like experience when pressed against the body.
.
Able to spin at three different speeds, and unlike the first Sqweel, the Sqweel 2 features options for a flicker and a reverse wheel spin, providing a total of nine different oral sex sensation options to choose from. It is also made of silicone, whereas the first one was silicone and partly porous. Though the Sqweel 2 also provides 30% more power than the first iteration, pressing the wheel too hard against the body at the low and medium speeds will still cause the spinning to stop. At the fastest speed, it does not stop as easily, but it is also more difficult to press hard against the body because it is spinning so quickly.
.
Unlike most other toys, the Sqweel 2 uses its unique design to mimic activities that involve oral stimulation, such as cunnilingus or anilingus, by creating a lapping sensation, as opposed to simply vibrating against the body. This toy can be enjoyed on a variety of other body parts as well; any part of the body that likes the sensation of licks might enjoy having this toy used there. The Sqweel 2 makes it possible to experience different oral sensations at the same time when used with a partner.
.
Because this toy needs extra power to create the spinning effect, it is not the quietest toy to use: the motor is loud to enough to hear from the other side of a door or wall, so if roommates or housemates hearing the toy is a concern, be sure to use this when no one is home.
.
Important things to note:
.
The Sqweel 2 is five inches long—half an inch longer than its previous version. Its casing is plastic and colored bright white with a cotton candy pink cap (it also comes in black/pink), and the inside wheel is made of smooth, light pink silicone, with ten “tongues” to mimic oral stimulation. This toy runs on three AAA batteries that are not included, so be sure to buy these ahead of time.
.
The Sqweel 2 can be used with your favorite water-based lubricant, too, since it’s so easy to clean! A warming lubricant might be particularly enjoyable to add to the illusion of receiving oral sex. However, since the wheel and tongues are made of silicone, silicone lube is not recommended (silicone lube combined with silicone toys generally destroys the toy material over time).
.
How to keep it clean:
.
The casing and cap make this toy easy to store and surprisingly easy to clean. Simply shift the unlock button to remove the front of the case, and the wheel can be taken off and cleaned, preferably with antibacterial soap and water or a body-safe sex toy cleaner. Next, use a wet, soapy cloth to clean out the inside of the case, the removable side casing, and the cap. However, do be sure to avoid getting the battery area wet as this toy is not waterproof and getting this area wet could destroy your toy.  After the pieces have been wiped down and are thoroughly air-dried, the pieces can be reassembled for some more fun. If a unique, oral sensation toy is what you are looking for, the Sqweel 2 might be for you!
