It has been quite a while since last I got to explore a new prostate stimulator. I've run the gamut from cheap jelly butt plugs (hey, I was a noob, I didn't know!) to the stainless steel monster that is the nJoy Pure Plug 2.0 (which sits on my bedside table mocking me with its size). Often I find myself feeling that, well, perhaps they're trying too hard. Prostates are simple nerve clusters. They don't even really need rubbing, just pressure. I often get the sense that companies making butt toys are just turning their vagina toys on their side and slapping a new name on them.
Mangasm prostate stimulators approached me asking if I'd take their stimulators (which they amusingly call tools, though I'm not quite positive if they're in on the joke) for a test drive. Feeling adventurous, and wondering when the last time I gave my creme de la creme Nexus Vibro any love (or vice versa, really), I said “You send them, I'll put them in my butt.” (Which, let's be honest, is not something most people get to say very often. [re: never]) Fairly shortly later I was presented with two smaller than expected boxes simply labeled Mangasm Male G-Spot Stimulators.
In these two boxes were the Mangasm Edge, and the Mangasm Rush.
The Mangasm Rush is a non-vibrating prostate stimulator that reminded me immediately of the popular Aneros prostate massager in shape, but having held those and felt their hard plastic, I was quite pleased to find this one entirely made of what feels like soft silicone but is instead (according to their website) their own patented material called Pleasure Grip. Sigh. Why everybody needs their own patented (and unlisted) material….grumble grumble harrumph. (Didn't get a harrumph outta that guy…) It's smooth and soft, quite flexible (perhaps even too flexible in the base), and the body of the toy reminded me immediately of a wasp with a large segment prostate stimulator and a much smaller middle.
I inserted it and found that, whatever the hell their patented material is, it went in smooth and snuggled right up to my prostate. The floppy material did NOT contribute to the perineum stimulation portion of the product doing…well…anything. The big end is big enough and provided enough pressure that I was able to squeeze my way to close to orgasm, and produced what I consider a par for the course prostate stimulation helped ejaculation. (ie, bigger, longer, faster, further)
The next day I took the Mangasm Edge for a spin. This is a (smooth) hard plastic stimulator with a corded control for the vibration. First off, I loved having the cord. Most of the stimulators I've used that vibrate find me having to reach around to find the controls to adjust. Having them in front of me was very helpful. This is a bit skinnier and more pointed, so it didn't hug my prostate as much, but I suppose would be better for those newer to things in their bums.
It went in quite smoothly and the hard plastic didn't bother me at all. The perineum stimulation portion pressed directly against and rubbed a little, which I enjoyed quite a bit. I was let down by the vibration, unfortunately. The low was low, and the high was not quite as low. There was no way to mix up the types of vibration or frequency. It's times like this when I wish LELO just made EVERY vibrator.
And please, Mangasm…I know you wanna keep your “special sauce” secret, but it's our right to know what's going up our asses…or you get condomed.
Overall, impressed by these two. Neither were up to the level of my favorites, but both can reside quite comfortably among the prostate toys I've enjoyed. Both have little things they could definitely improve upon, but neither gets relegated to the deep recesses of the bottom drawer.
