Luxe Opus – NS Novelties
You know those eco-friendly tampons that forgo the applicator, requiring you to dive knuckle deep into your menstruating vagina to put them in place? That’s what the Luxe Opus reminded me of. Maybe that should have been a hint that this review would not be favorable, but I have a well-documented attraction to bad boy toys, so of course I started salivating at the sight of it.
Like those innovative, messy tampons, Opus suggests full finger involvement. The shaft of the toy is hollow and open on both sides, so two fingers fit comfortably through. A gentle “come hither” motion nods its curved length in the direction of the g-spot. When I put it on my hand, I was quite seduced.
I’m great at touching me, New Sensations toys are great at touching me, so the collaboration seemed a no brainer. I thought we’d be the next Sonny and Cher, the next Bonnie and Clyde, the next Michelle and Barack. Before I explain why we are instead the next Bobby and Whitney, here are some basic facts about the toy:
- It is silicone and rechargeable.
- It is waterproof.
- It has two motors—one in its shaft and one in its clitoral nub
- Its motors have ten functions.
Opus and I were kind of doomed from the start. I’m suffering from a neck and shoulders injury related, ironically, to hoisting my legs behind my head. For this reason, I started flat on my back, which is really not the best position for reaching around a bulky sex toy and into your own vagina.
But when I like a guy, I give it all I’ve got, so for his sake I risked further injury by elevating my shoulders and curving my spine. I tilted my pelvis with a pillow and even tried reaching from behind. There was no denying that my fingers were not going to fill the toy inside my body.
With regret, I withdrew my fingers, transforming Opus into just another Rabbit. With occasional exception, I abhor Rabbits because they assume the same static spacing between a penetrating shaft and a clitoral stimulator will fit every body. What’s worse than a straight rabbit is a G-Spot Rabbit, because it arrogant aims to simultaneously stimulate two relatively small spots.
With Opus, inserting the shaft fully is the only way to achieve clitoral stimulation and, even if my fingers had reached to guide it, this misses the g-spot mark. It saddens me that a manufacturer I once threatened to wed created such a careless design flaw.
I was so sad, I actually stopped using the toy. That’s first–for the first time ever, I quit a toy mid-review. Somehow, someway, I could have climaxed, but I was so bummed I didn’t want to. I tossed Opus aside knowing no amount of hard-earned satisfaction would have changed my opinion.
Opus, I’m sorry it didn’t work out. It’s not you; it’s me.
No, actually it’s entirely you.
You can give Opus a go here. If it works out, let me know your secret!
