Ergo Mini Silicone Dildo Review

ergo-miniIf you want a smaller silicone dildo with a basic penis shape, but don’t want something overly realistic (ripples & blue veins), take a look at Ergo Mini.

After testing the Truck Tire Cock Ring and the Ass Master-Bator from Blush Novelties, the third product I was invited to try was a silicone dildo from their new Real Nude line. The dildos in this category are all made of a body-safe, dual density silicone. While basically realistic in shape, size, design, touch and color, the Real Nude dongs aren’t the “overly” realistic dildos that feature every last bump and blue vein. A lot of toy users are put off by these detailed reproductions, yet they want something that has a realistic shape and color (you know, anything that isn’t powder blue, bright red or hot pink). The Ergo Mini – along with its other brothers from Blush Novelties – happily fall into this category.

When I first looked at the Blush Novelties catalog to peruse for products that piqued my interest, the Real Nude dongs immediately jumped out at me. They were designed realistically but subtle, and the material was silicone. Thanks to ongoing education from sex toy reviewers, bloggers, vendors and manufacturers alike, more and more sex toy buyers are finding out about the great benefits of silicone toys. Silicone is considered to be a body-safe material, and it’s a great choice for those who may have a sensitivity to some of the rubber-type of materials that many dildos are made of. It is free of unpleasant odors (or any odors, for that matter), and is a non-porus material, so clean up couldn’t be easier. It can be warmed or cooled before use, and warms up nicely during use, so it feels much like an actual male cock after you get going.

Though Blush Novelties has several beautiful larger dildos in their collection, the Ergo Mini caught my eye. I really wanted to review a dildo on the smaller end of the spectrum, because a lot of men would like to try one, but don’t want to jump in with one that’s overly large. While at 7.2 inches (5 insertable), the Ergo Mini isn’t the smallest dong out there, it does sport a shaft that is relatively less thick than many. The benefit to newbies or guys who just don’t want a big girthy dong is that the Ergo Mini isn’t going to stretch you too far. The five inches of the curved shaft from the top of the balls to the tip of the toy can be inserted as much or as little as you like.

Like all of the dildos in the Real Nude line, the Ergo Mini sports dual density silicone. This means there’s a softer, cushiony outer layer wrapped around a very firm silicone core. What does this mean for the guy using it? It means the feel of the dong is very soft, and somewhat squishy; it has a nice bit of give to it, especially near the tip (where it’s entirely soft). This is nice on the head, which – as you can see – is a bit bulbous in comparison with the rest of the shaft. The root of the shaft is where you really notice the underlying stiff core of silicone. It feels just like a real erection. The most notable thing is holding the dong upright; the dildo sticks straight up like a hard dick. This is especially noticeable if you’re using the Ergo Mini with the suction cup base or a harness. I never really understood the appeal of those thick, heavy dongs that droop downward under their own weight. Sure, they might look nice, but a droopy dong is difficult to work with. The Ergo Mini sticks up proudly; it’s stiff, but the outer layer of silicone keeps the texture smooth and soft.

During use, Blush recommends using water-based lube, which is what I tried. Because the surface of the dong is so smooth, it became really slick once it was lubed up. Be sure to use plenty of lube with this thing, because it tends to grab at your flesh if it’s not generously lubricated. I was concerned that many newbies might have trouble with the enlarged head on this thing, but the material is squishy enough at the tip that a bit of clenching should cause it to ease right in (again, lube the toy and your hole well before penetration). The shaft was very slippery, and slid right in. If you’re worried about how deep you want to take it at first, simply grip the bulge (balls) at the base, or the suction cup and easily control how much or how little you take inside. I found that if you take the entire thing, the nicely-shaped head is probably going to slide right past your prostate, but if you control the depth with your hand, you can easily position the Ergo Mini in just the right spot.

I even tried the toy in the shower. The suction cup worked nicely on every surface I tried (floor, wall, tub), but when I tested it in a running shower, I had to keep a firmer grip on it, because the water on the smooth wet wall caused it to slide around a bit. Better to pick a spot for it before you turn on the water, because this thing holds better on a dry surface. If you aren’t interested in using the suction cup to position it, you can use it just as well by holding it in your hand. I did not try it with a harness, but my first thought upon removing it from the box was how fun it would be for guys who like pegging. Just affix an O-ring between the base of the dildo and the suction cup and the Ergo Mini will be proudly erect.

I was completely satisfied with the Ergo Mini, and happily recommend it to those who are looking for a stylish and realistic dong in a more natural color. The dual density layers of silicone are among the best I’ve seen (especially for stick-up stiffness!). The Ergo Mini seems perfect for guys who don’t want a huge, girthy dong, but the length is certainly enough to give most guys a little wiggle room in their experimentation. If you’re looking for a thicker dildo, but like the shape of the Ergo Mini, why not try the longer/thicker Ergo? Blush Novelties’ Real Nude line has a bunch of beautiful dongs to play with, so surely one will fit your needs and experience level. Thanks again to Blush Novelties for letting me test out the Ergo Mini; it definitely gets my stamp of approval. On a final note: the Real Nude dongs are packaged in a nice see-through box and include a black satiny pouch for storage between uses.
