Great ideas, questionable execution…
We have a couple more Synergy Erotic toys to tell you about. I can say in advance that the Dr Dick Review Crew is more than a little frustrated. We see so much potential in this company, but sadly they have yet to hit their stride in consistently producing quality toys.
They are full of very interesting ideas, but their execution leaves a great deal to be desired. We wondered out loud in a previous review: “We do, however, have a few words of advice for the Synergy Erotic people. Why not invest more in the production values of your products and make a name for yourself in terms of quality, not price per unit. We’d be willing to pay considerably more for a vibe, like this, that actually worked as advertised.”
Review Crew members, Madora and Chuck take turns filling us in on these two products.
SILK waterproof vibe $17.91
My first impression of the SILK vibe by Synergy Erotic was that it was adorable, but without being disgustingly so. Mine’s lavender but it comes in pink too. I was impressed by their minimal yet informative packaging.
SILK measures approximately 7.5 x 1.25 inches and has cute flowers “growing” all over it. The flowers are slightly raised, which adds a bit more texture. It’s got what they call “infinite vibration”, it’s waterproof, multi-speed, phthalate free, and runs on 2 AA batteries, which are not included. Bad luck for that!
The first time I used the SILK vibe I turned the ring to turn the vibration on and it just kept turning. Broken already! I mean REALLY! The very first use and it’s broken. So unfortunately I had to totally screw the top on and off every time I want to use it. But even this didn’t always work. I had a devil of a time turning it on. (Which isn’t good thing when I’m already turned on!)
SILK has some potential. I think it’s cute and it is flexy and kinda squishy in parts but not so much that you couldn’t use it properly. I found I was able to slip it in my bum without much pain because it has such nice give to it. (I can’t do that with other harder toys). It’s got a pretty good-sized vibrating egg in the tip, but it doesn’t really conduct a lot of the vibrations through the rest of the shaft.

Beer Babe Vagina Precious Pink $20.94
This here is the Beer Babe Vagina in what they call Precious Pink. It also comes in, god help us, Raunchy Red.
I’m gay! So right off the bat, the promotional pitch for this product didn’t appeal to me. Seems to me Synergy Erotic is needlessly eliminating a whole bunch of potential queer customers with this approach, but that’s just me. I do love a good masturbating sleeve. So even if it looks like a cunt, I won’t hold that against it. I mean once I get goin, I’m not gonna notice the configuration of the orifice.
The Beer Babe gets high marks for creativity. I mean besides it looking like a bottle of beer, the copy on the label is a hoot. “Superb Jackability” on the front. And on the back: “Prolonged use of this item may cause pleasure, stimulation and finally ejaculation! Use of suitable water-based lubricants and appropriate visual ages is highly recommended. Deposit Required!”
It says that it’s 9” fleshy inches. But that’s simply not true. The whole bottle is 9 inches. And no one’s dick, least of all mine, would fit in the bottle’s neck. Besides, the “fleshy” insert is only 6 inches. And while that might suit most guys; if you got anything over a 6 inch boner, the head of your dick is gonna get jammed up against the tapering neck of the bottle. OUCH!
Vigorous thrusting, the kind I like, will also dislodge the fleshy insert from the hard plastic bottle. This is frustrating in the extreme.
When I first took this thing from its packaging and opened the base to look inside, a wave of noxious fumes came from within. WTF? I mentioned this to Dr Dick and he said that’s called off-gas. Which is a nasty by-product of manufacturing. I wasn’t about to stick my dick in there till I eliminated the smell. I soaked the entire unit, inside and out, in hot soapy water first, to rid it of the smell.
After only one attempt at squeezing one off with the Beer Babe ; I gave up. Like I said, the insert kept separating from the bottle shaped holder.
