Last week California Exotic Novelties sent us the Shane’s World Campus Hottie masturbation sleeve to review, and I’ve really dreaded posting this review. They’re a good company who has made some toys that I’ve really enjoyed, but this isn’t one of them. Let’s start with some technical observations first though.
The Campus Hottie is a seamless one-piece masturbation toy made of clear thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) sans any latex or phthalates. It’s pliable like a firm jelly, and although almost all TPE toys feel a bit sticky this one is on the very low end of the stickiness spectrum so it’s ok there. It does have a persistent plastic smell which remains on your hands until you wash them though.
The toy measures a little over 8″ long with a 3/4″ semi-realistic opening that stretches wide enough that it could accommodate a bigger than average prick. But now we start getting into why the Campus Hottie really didn’t make the grade in my opinion.
I’m an average-sized guy when it comes to girth, yet once I got past the toy’s opening the interior seemed to widen out enough to make it feel like the Campus Hottie had already taken on an entire football team. Or maybe it was the lack of any internal texturing whatsoever that made it feel so loose and unexciting.
The box said; “ribbed pleasure tunnel for an explosive finish” and the keyword there is “finish.” For more than 6″ the inside of the toy has smooth walls, with the ribs only found in the last 1-1/2″ or so of the toy. I’ve got enough length that I could have gotten into those ribs if it wasn’t for the fact that the interior, at that point, narrows down to about a pencil’s width and doesn’t have a lot of side-to-side give. The result is, when I thrust the toy stretches and elongates so there’s no way to get into that mini portion. In the interest of giving the toy a fair chance, we tried it 4 different times, and I never did manage to get off with it even with a good amount of squeezing to increase the pressure. If there had been any kind of variation into the tunnel at all—- bumps, ribs, waves, whatever —- the toy might have been good. But it was just too smooth and slick to even get any stimulating friction out of it.
I’m giving this one two stars based on my own personal experience. For a man who doesn’t like a lot of stimulation this toy would probably be great, but to me Rosie Palm is a more exciting date than the Campus Hottie is. As far as California Exotic’s toys go, I think most men would be much better off with their Big Honcho masturbation sleeve instead. I would like to thank them for letting us give the Campus Hottie a try though.
Even though Alan hates it when I say it, the first thing I thought when I saw it was that this really is a pretty masturbation toy. If it were glass it would probably have found a spot in my garden by now… ok I’m getting off subject there.
Prettiness aside, this isn’t my favorite choice in sleeves for toying with my man. The rippled outer design is comfortable and easy to hold onto, but I have to use two hands to keep it from flopping off of him on the upstroke due to the length. And not having a free hand makes me feel more like I’m churning butter than giving an erotic hand job
