Review: Geeky Sex Toys Pride Dildo

From the moment I saw the Pride Dildo from Geeky Sex Toys, I knew I wanted to review it. It’s a dildo in the colours of the trans pride flag! While I get excited about pride sex toys in general, I’m so used to them being just the rainbow flag that seeing the trans flag specifically makes me so happy. And I’m even more happy that the trans pride colours are being used on such a great dildo.

If the trans colours aren’t you’re thing, don’t worry! The pride dildo is also available in other flags, including rainbow, bisexual, and lesbian pride colours, and if you identify in another way, you can request custom colours at no extra cost. If anal play is more your thing, Geeky Sex Toys also produce a Pride Butt Plug, with the same colour options. The Pride Dildo is available for $50 AUD (~£28 at the time of writing), the Pride Butt Plug is available for $40 AUD (~£22), and if you fancy a set, you can buy both for $70 AUD (~£39).

The Pride Dildo is a comfortable size, with 6.5 inches of insertable length and a circumference of 4.3 inches. The colours of the silicone are wonderfully bright and pigmented, and while there are a few spots where they bleed into each other, I don’t mind this. In fact I actually really like it- it reminds me that this is a toy handmade to order. It adds charm for me, as does the adorable heart shaped base, that makes the Pride Dildo both harness compatible and anal safe.

I’ll be honest and say that the Pride Dildo isn’t the kind of dildo I’d normally go for. I asked Geeky Sex Toys if I could review it primarily because I am a slave to Rainbow Capitalism and automatically need any dildo that comes in the trans pride colours. But I’m really glad I did ask for it, because I loved it way more than I expected to.

My normal go-to with dildos is big and soft. Neither of these words describe the Pride Dildo. It’s described as a ‘medium’ firmness, but to me it feels pretty firm. There’s no squish if you squeeze the dildo, but it is flexible enough you can pull the shaft back. Geeky Sex Toys states the firmness is a Shore A-25, and while this doesn’t really mean much to me, Phallophile Reviews has a great post about silicone firmnesses that puts this into perspective. It’s firmer than my Godemiche or Split Peaches toys, which I normally consider pretty firm, but not quite as firm as my Fun Factory dildos.

The Pride Dildo is also smaller than the dildos I normally go for. This is definitely a good thing given the firmness though. I definitely couldn’t handle the kind of size my most used toys have in the firmness of this dildo, and the firmness makes the Pride Dildo feel substantial in use, while still remaining super comfortable for me. It’s not a dildo I need to warm up for, but it doesn’t feel small when I use it.

Overall, it’s a pretty standard non-realistic shape, with a slightly defined ‘head’, and a slight curve for g-spot and prostate stimulation. However, while I initially thought it was a pretty smooth shaft, there’s actually two bumps in it. One is around the midshaft, pretty much in the middle of the white stripe of my dildo, while the other is nearer the base. These bumps make all the difference in use for me.

My go-to way of using the Pride Dildo isn’t thrusting, but having it still in my vagina while I apply stimulation to my cock externally. Those bumps really work well when I use it like this. They add to the feeling of fullness when I clench, which I tend to do a lot when I use external vibrators. However, they’re not so large that they make thrusting uncomfortable, which I’ve found to be the case with some dildos I’ve used that have very defined bumps/bulbs. While I don’t use the Pride Dildo for thrusting as much as I do just feeling full, the curve works really well for prostate and g-spot stimulation. When looking at it for the first time, I expected it to be too shallow a curve for this, so I was surprised it’s as good for this as it is. While I don’t quite get enough g-spot stimulation to have a pure g-spot orgasm, I’ve had some really good prostate orgasms. I think the firmness of the silicone is why the Pride Dildo works better as a p-spotter for me than other dildos I’ve tried. It doesn’t have any give, and the firm wide head produces the perfect amount of pressure on my prostate.base.png

While the heart base is adorable, I definitely did have some concerns about its stability in a harness. The distance between the base of the shaft and the point of the heart is pretty small, and the base is generally pretty thin down this end. I worried that an O-ring might not hold the Pride Dildo as steady as more circular based dildos. My fears were unfounded though- my Joque was able to hold the Pride Dildo just as steadily as it does my dildos with other shaped bases. And I found I really liked having it as my cock in a harness.

This is definitely partly psychological. I’m slowly unlearning transphobia, and part of this inevitably relates to how I view myself as a sexual person. I want to be the kind of person absolutely unapologetic about the fact I’m trans. It’s this process of unlearning that motivated me to get the trans symbol tattooed on my butt, and I think it’s this process of unlearning that makes wearing the Pride Dildo feel so good. When one of the things I want to work through is the fact I often view myself as attractive in spite of my trans status, strapping on a cock that’s a pride flag feels like shoving a middle finger into cisnormativity’s face. It made me feel…proud. Which I suppose is apt, given the name.

Even without the pride colours, I would still recommend the Pride Dildo. Despite my jokes about Rainbow Capitalism, this isn’t a case where a mass manufactured toy has a price premium added to it because it happens to be pride colours. Geeky Sex Toys are a small company, and the Pride Dildo is an affordable price, at under £30. It’s a great dildo if you’re into leave-in-and-play-externally style masturbation, great for prostate stim, and good for strap-on play. But the pride colours are definitely a big selling point for me. And they also gave me a lot of feelings.

If you’re looking for a toy in specific pride colours, especially the lesser known ones, I would really recommend the Pride Dildo from Geeky Sex Toys. And even if you’re not looking for pride colours, it’s a great dildo if you’re into smaller, non-realistic toys.

If you’d like to buy the Pride Dildo, you can buy it from Geeky Sex Toys for $50 AUD (~£28 at the time of writing). Geeky Sex Toys also has a Pride Butt Plug available for $40 AUD (~£22), and if you fancy a set, you can buy both for $70 AUD (~£39).
