This sex toy review was published on OurChart.com around September 12th 2008, before the website dumped their content. I have reposted it here out of respect for the companies which donated their product, in this case: Babeland.com – JL 

You know a sex toy is good when it’s asked for by name. And for me, that’s saying a lot. I have over 20 dildos to choose from and the competition is… stiff! My lucky partner gets to be my sexual guinea pig on more than a few occasions. She’s a size queen, and she’s picky too. We enjoy the Rascal made by Tantus for two very simple reasons:

1.    It’s wide

2.    We like wide.

Rascal is made of great duel density silicone process called O2 – a soft outside layer with a firm core, creating a great feeling dildo that provides the perfect girth. There are tons of ridges along the shaft which, when coupled with the 1 ¾” girth of the toy, are pretty effective for your average ‘bigger-is-better’ size queen. When it comes to penetration, our pussies tend to be most sensitive towards the opening – from the inner lips to only a few inches inside. The sensations shift to feelings of fullness and pressure once you go deeper towards the cervix. This toy’s girth, plus row after row after glorious row, of big ridges are a winning combination. A flared base makes it easy to hold or harness, though it’s best used with a strap-on at close hip-to-hip range with shallow pelvic thrusts. Get a little too crazy, and the stout dildo pops out! Which can be frustrating – or just your cup of tea for folks who crave repeated re-entry. (Ridges!)

A hole at the base means a small bullet vibe can be inserted. Buzz, buzz. Slip the bullet in all the way in and press the little button to get the buzz going. Here’s a tip to help slip the bullet in and out, hassle free: coat a thin layer of lube on the vibe before you push it in the hole. Remove the vibe when not in use to keep the toy clean and take the batteries out to make them last longer. Silicone is known for transmitting vibrations but the delicious thickness of the Rascal dulls the sensations for the receiver. Vibrations are best felt by the partner who is strapping the dildo.

A friend once drunk-dialed me from a bar with a question that she and all of her boisterous friends were debating:
What is the difference between a Dildo and a Vibrator?

A dildo can be inserted (vaginally or anally) and are a phallic or somewhat dick-shape. Most are made from materials like silicone, stainless steel, and blown glass. Cheap varieties are made of jelly rubber (put a condom on these to protect your body from nasty toxins). Dildos can be hand-held, harness-able, or even two-sided such as a ‘double-dong’. A vibrator, on the other hand, is an electric or battery-operated machine that vibrates or oscillates (side to side) to transmit strong pulses. Their shape can be most anything. Bullets are a popular vibe because they’re so versatile. The tiny vibe is easy to transport, easy to hold next to a clit (or even man-parts for all you bi-sexual ladies out there), and fits snug inside many silicone dildos thus transforming a dildo into a vibrating toy.

The rascal is a dildo. Insert a bullet vibe and like magic… Voilà! it becomes a vibrating dildo.

With two pretty hot color variations; Twilight (white/dark blue) or Candy (white/pink), the Rascal is a great choice for your next bedside bombshell.
Hefty ridges, juicy dual density silicone, and 1 ¾” of happy width will have you asking for this toy by name.
