Review: G-Rider by Nexus


Greetings friends, Cooper here with another multi-article, multi-day project. Today we received a box in the mail with five Nexus products inside, just begging to be reviewed. Marilyn pouted when she handed me the box on my arrival home. “They're all for you,” she said. Looking inside I saw that they were indeed for me, as they were all Male G-Spot Massagers. “You just got a G-Pop to review,” I told her, and shuffled off with the box of toys.

So, today I'm going to give my impressions of the G-Rider, one of the two silicone toys they provided us with for review.  The entire Nexus line are listed as G-Spot massagers, and their site indicates they're for both men and women, but I find that to be a bit misleading, as all 5 of the products sent to me are listed as MALE G-Spot massagers.

First and foremost, like any silicone toy, this baby is SOFT and smooth.  And, since it's made of high grade silicone, it can be boiled to disinfect.  It's shaped sort of like a fat bent finger, about four inches long and an inch across at its girthiest point, with a base that flairs out in two curved directions to keep the G-Rider in place.  The front flair has little nubs on it for stimulation of the perineum while the back is a “handle for manual intervention” but I personally couldn't get a real grip on it.

All of the Nexus toys come with the directions that you should insert it slowly and then relax for 10-15 minutes, allowing your body to become accustomed to the toy.  As someone who isn't new to insertion or prostate play, it didn't take as long for me to become accustomed to it.   I followed their suggestions of rocking and clenching to achieve arousal without other stimulation, but it didn't really get me there.  When I turned on the vibration, however, it was very much like having a vibrator at the core of my crotch.  (Which, I suppose, is EXACTLY what it is)

It has five different vibration settings, accessed by repeatedly pressing the button on the base of the G-Rider.  Each provide very pleasing high intensity and low intensity moments, some rising and falling, some patterned, some jackhammer.  Having never experimented with vibration in the vicinity of my prostate before, this was a very enlightening experience.  As my excitement level rose, the vibration came right along, and when I orgasmed, I can't say it was more intense than a regular orgasm, but I'll certainly say it felt DIFFERENT, and lasted a bit longer.  So I call that a win.

I was very impressed with the G-Rider.  Having used only some cheap butt plugs in the past, my main thrill was how hands free this was since the flared base stays right up against you and isn't round like many plugs.  There was no scrambling to hold it in, even during orgasm.  If you're into that sort of thing, it's the kind of toy you can walk around with it in.  I look forward to adding the G-Rider to our regular toybox as a high quality product that I think I'll return to, and look forward to reviewing the other products in the Nexus line.
