Ok I’ll admit it . . . I’m a clit sort of girl, and you probably won’t be surprised when I say that I can get aroused by all sorts of situations and scenarios . . . not to mention all sorts of naughty thoughts and fantasies. But normally it’s having my clit stimulated in someway (oh alright, in anyway!!!) that brings me to the most fulfilling, earth-shaking and shuddering, exhausting, orgasm.
And nothing does that to my clit more powerfully, more completely . . . and more quickly . . . than my Doxy Wand. In fact, very often, it can be “too quickly” . . . and part of the Wand’s delight for me, if I’m using it on my own, is the challenge of teasing and pacing myself in it’s use. Prolonging the sensations, resisting the vibrations, denying it’s power and refusing it’s ultimate, total-control of my senses!
See . . . already, just talking about the Wand has got me pulsing, tingling and vibrating off on a tangent . . . BECAUSE this review is not about the Doxy Wand . . . it is about it’s new sibling the Doxy Skittle!!!
So, let me calm down . . . and start again . . .
Ok, I’ll admit it . . . I’m a clit sort of girl. Sooo . . . I was delighted and enthralled to receive The Doxy Skittle in my post box recently. Delighted because it was from Doxy (oohh shhh! don’t get me started again!!!) and enthralled because I’d not seen, heard, or read anything about it at all, until I opened the parcel!
And there, enticingly packaged in a white glossy box . . . and staring out at me from behind a clear, see-through acetate window, was a surprisingly and intriguingly shaped black object with a curling lead attached to what was obviously it’s push-button controller.
As I slid it’s holding tray from out of the box I could tell straight away that this was completely different from my wand . . . and that the raised and bulbous extension at the top was obviously designed for . . . well, for more than one “entrance point”.
So, not only a dual-purpose vibrator, but a dual-gender one as well! Because . . . if you haven’t already guessed from looking at the photos here (go on, admit it, you’ve looked already haven’t you?) . . . the Doxy Skittle is a vibrator that can be used either externally or internally and for either clit and vagina OR . . . for one’s bottom and prostate.
As I unwound the Skittle and it’s controller and cord from the box, I was already vibrating and tingling with excitement and intrigue before I’d even plugged it in!!!
Thankfully, like the Doxy Wand, the Skittle is mains powered, so I didn’t have to wait around for it to charge for hours and hours before I could try it. And you know me, I’m petulant and impatient and I just hate waiting . . . so I was delighted to be able to just plug it in and turn it on . . . straight-away!
And first impressions? Well it is quieter than the Wand, much quieter, but still holding it in my hand . . . and I must say the shape does allow one to easily grip and hold it . . . it was obvious that it’s vibrations are still quite powerful. The whole unit actually vibrates and you immediately think, as you push the controller buttons, “how the hell do they get it to rumble and throb so powerfully???”
The extendable-bit . . . (I’m tempted to call it the “finger” but that doesn’t seem the right term for me, so I’ll just call it the “extendage”) wobbles and sort of shifts and twists. I immediately gave it my “nose-test” . . . after all, in my excitement and haste to unpack it and switch it on, I was still fully dressed.
My nose told me that as I push the +plus button (look at the pictures, I’ll get to the technical explanations later once I’ve calmed down again!) the “extendage” wobbles less but vibrates more powerfully, whilst as I (delightfully) squeezed the -minus button, the vibrations decreased but the wobbles became more pronounced.
I impatiently placed the Skittle on my bedside table whilst I quickly disrobed, pausing to note that it could have almost passed for a lovely bedside lamp . . . except of course that it doesn’t glow. That, and the fact that it was still vibrating and slowly moving across the table of it’s own accord!!!
The power cord is quite long (more on that later), so it was really easy for me to collapse back onto the bed and wriggle myself into my favourite “Doxy Do” position . . . and . . .
. . . now, as I’ve already said, I’m a clit-girl and despite my natural inquisitiveness about that extendage, my first instinct was to aim the Skittle at my truly, truly sensitive bit. And yes, it was nice. Quite nice in fact . . . though as I plussed and minussed away on the controller . . . I could sense it wasn’t quite as easy to position or control as my Wand.
I have learnt from later experience though, that the fact that the controller module is about 3 feet of cable away from the Skittle itself is actually a great advantage when playing with a partner, but I did find myself fumbling a bit when trying it out for that first time on my own. But that of course, is just because it was different from the buttons not being attached to the handle of the unit as they are on my Wand.
But anyway . . . that extendage, and the indented shape where it meets the top of the handle . . . soon had me realising that it has several different possibilities as I moved it around and around my lips . . . and then into my vagina.
It was at this point that I decided to lift it away again and experiment with the “pulsing setting”. Just like the Wand, if you turn-off the power and then hold down that button for a few seconds, the Skittle will start-up again in a pulsing mode. So that wobbling and shifting and twisting will vary in motion and power and, I suppose, in intensity. And then start it’s pulsing-cycle again. Actually for me, although it is of course very clever, I found this setting to be more distracting and less enjoyable. But, returning it to the standard vibrations, I was soon swooning again as I twisted and pushed that wobbly, knobbly bit between my lips and held the curved nub of the unit against me. If you look closely at the pictures you will see the curved bit I’m talking about, and I could certainly feel it’s vibrations as I rubbed it against me whilst slowly pushing and probing with the extendage.
So . . . and remember that I was trying this on my own initially . . . leaving it on it’s vibrating setting, I then decided to experiment with that dual-purpose, secondary “entrance point”.
Now I have to be in a certain mood for anal play . . . and usually it is much, much easier when it just seems to happen spontaneously and naturally . . . and usually only when I’m in company. It’s not something I normally do when I’m alone. So possibly for that reason, and possibly because I couldn’t seem to find the right position, or way to hold onto the Skittle, and reach for and operate the buttons, I quickly lost my concentration . . . and my desire . . . resigning myself to revisit that situation when I would be accompanied by a companion. And, of course, very often when one is trying too hard to do something, the motivation or inspiration is all wrong anyway . . .
. . . but a few hours later (see I told you I was impatient!) . . . and on several occasions since, Hubby and I have experimented further and with a little more success. But whether because the extendage shape, or length, isn’t exactly right for either of us, or because the size of the handle makes the positioning difficult to achieve, the Skittle as an anal massager, hasn’t quite worked consistently for us. (Though it was great fun, and certainly a very interesting sight, making him sit down onto it as I held it beneath him . . . and NO, there are no pictures . . . well not here in this review at least!)
So . . . how does it compare with the Wand Massager you will, naturally ask, especially as it is a Doxy product after all?
Well, nothing can compare with the Wand of course . . . for sheer power, immediacy and ease-of-use, I suppose any other Doxy product will be forever in the Wand’s shadow. But the Skittle is fun and different . . . and certainly much quieter (so you could probably use comfortably with friends and family sleeping blissfully down the hall, instead of knocking on your bedroom door asking why you are putting-up shelving or assembling a wardobe in the middle of the night!)
And actually, you know what I think the main difference for me between the Wand and the Skittle is??? Well, I find the Skittle is much more fun to use during couple-play . . . fun and different, and leading to more adventurous play and situations. Whereas the Wand is more of a “this is all about me, give it here, it’s mine!!!” solo sort of experience. Well that’s how I’ve found it to be anyway.
So for those of you who find anal and prostate-play hugely satisfying and enjoyable, or for introducing some naughty fun into your playtime with your favourite lover, then I’m sure The Skittle would be a welcome addition to your Toy Drawer!!!

You can watch my Video Review of the Doxy Skittle >. . .< well actually I’ve been too “busy” to do one yet . . . but if you ask nicely???
The Doxy Skittle Massager was sent to me as a gift by Doxy, and they did not ask me for a review.
The Modesty Rider:
I realise, of course, that there are already thousands of long-established Sex Toy Reviewers and Review sites . . . most of whom will be far more adept at explaining all the technical details and specifications of things. But for me, sexy clothes and lingerie, sexy toys . . . and even sexy books . . . are all about adding a little fun and excitement to things. So that is how I tend to approach my reviews and videos!!! Just to explain “how it was for me” in a fun, and light-hearted, way without taking things too seriously! Chances are that if something makes me giggle and tingle and feel good, it will score higher on my Modesty Rating.
