I was initially kind of excited to try out this new stroker from Maia: the Piper Vibrating Self-Heating Silicone Masturbation Sleeve with Suction. Peepshow Toys sent this masturbator to me in an exchange for an honest review. Out of the box, it was solid, sleek, and seemed like a higher-end masturbation toy. Last year I’d reviewed the Falcon Ninja Heated Stroker, which — while quite a bit shorter — has a similar black case/hot pink sleeve thing going on. I loved the Ninja’s heated interior and was hoping the Piper would give more of the same, only in a deeper sleeve.
My initial impression was pretty positive. The case seemed solid and the sleeve was made of thick, smooth silicone. The interior was so deep, I couldn’t even slide my fingers all the way into the bottom. With all its bells and whistles, the Piper is rechargeable and comes with a USB charging cable. Before use, slide the metal prong into the hole in the base and wait for the red light to stop pulsing. Once it’s done, you’re ready to power it up.
I used Sliquid Sassy lube with the Piper, but any good water-based lube would probably work well. The toy is kind of heavy, even by masturbation sleeve standards, but Maia has designed a nice curve to the back end of the case, which makes it comfortable to hold. There are three control buttons along the front of the case and each one operates a separate feature: vibration, heating, and suction.

I decided to try out each of the features individually first, before attempting to enjoy them in any sort of combination. The Vibration function hums to life with a press of the first button and at first it seemed pretty decent. There are three steady vibration settings, but there isn’t much difference between one and the other two. There are also a dozen or more vibrating patterns, which feel more interesting. There’s a typical mix of rapid-fire bursts, and the motor revving up from low to high, and even a few nice ones that run at one speed for several seconds, then switch up to something faster paced. The problem I had with the vibrator is it’s too far down in the sleeve to hit me where I want it. If it was closer to the opening, I’d probably get some great frenulum stimulation out of this thing, but by putting it a little deeper in the cavity, it’s just in an awkward spot, at least for me.
The sleeve itself is totally smooth, so there isn’t any kind of a texture to offer stimulation, so the vibrator is kind of it. In addition to the depth of the vibe, the toy’s opening was a little hampering, too. Instead of creating a flat, round orifice, Maia has designed the Piper with a pair of raised ridges, almost like they were trying to create a set of lips. While this might make the toy more aesthetically appealing to some, it really adds more length to the opening and makes it more difficult to achieve deeper penetration. Plus the orifice is really wide, so I wasn’t able to make a lot of contact with the sleeve inside once I had penetrated it.
So I was a little frustrated with the vibrations. The Heat function was my favorite in the other masturbator I mentioned, so maybe the warming function would be the Piper’s saving grace as well. Not at all. Maia touts 3 levels of heat. I clicked the middle button to activate this feature, and waited. I wanted to give the toy a chance to warm up to a temperature that would feel really delicious. I actually used an infrared thermometer to test the temperature, and was initially pleased to see the insides had warmed up to a max temp of 111 degrees (F). Wow! The highest reading I was able to get on the smaller heated stroker was 104 degrees (F), so I was pretty excited to slide into this one.
Unfortunately, the sleeve may have reached a wonderful temperature, I just couldn’t reach it myself. Now maybe if you’re sporting an eight or nine inch dick, you’ll be able to reach the spots that heat up, but I really couldn’t feel much of anything. Silicone does tend to warm up on its own, especially if you’re thrusting a certain body part in and out of a sleeve made of the stuff, but I just couldn’t seem to go deep enough to enjoy all that extra concentrated heat.
So at this point, the Piper had been quite a disappointment, but I still have one important function left to try. One last button left to push. It’s the Suction feature, so I am hoping this last click will turn the Piper into a hungry sucking machine, pulling my unimpressed dick deep into its heated depths to deliver the masturbation experience I’ve been waiting for.
A look inside…
Now I noticed on my first inspection of the toy that there’s a little pinhole at the bottom of the sleeve. I’m curious if I activate the Suction mode, will the air somehow be magically vacuumed out of the sleeve and create a halfway decent blowjob sensation? I made sure to have as much of my dick crammed down into the Piper’s sleeve as I could manage before trying out the Suction function. I clicked the button, and something whirred to life. I heard a quieter humming, kind of like a vibrator, but after the battery has run down. I don’t feel anything. No suction, no sensations, nothing. I click the button again, several times. I can hear the whirring grow faster, and then change speeds. It seems to have similar “patterns” like the vibrator, but — since I can’t feel anything — I’m not really certain what’s happening when I switch things up. It all just feels like it did before I turned it on.
I pulled my dick out of the thing and pressed my face into the orifice. I figure I need a good seal over the opening, which — as you remember — isn’t flat, so how the hell am I going to find a way to completely seal it tightly. I’m determined to make this work, but at this point I realize I’ve got a chunky masturbator pressed firmly around my mouth in what seems a hopeless attempt to to give myself a mechanical blowjob.
Needless to say, I couldn’t get the suction to work. It almost felt the air was blowing out of the little hole in the bottom. Perhaps if the orifice was flat and I could obtain a good seal, something would actually happen, but when I felt jaunty little puffs of air on my face, I realized it was probably a lost cause. I mean, if you have to use your mouth to figure out if your masturbator is doing its job, it might be time to give up. Anyhow, if there needs to be a good seal over the opening to make the suction work, I don’t think it’s going to happen when the rim of the orifice rises and falls like a roller coaster track.
I wish the Maia Piper had been a better experience. I had hoped that a deeper sleeve would make a positive difference, but in this case, it really didn’t. I’m sure like any sex toy, there will be some who like it, some who love it, and some who can’t figure it out. I guess I fall into the latter category on this one. So, for now, the Piper will be put away, but I’m sure I’ll pull it out some night when I’ve got a raging hard-on and want to give things another shot. If I have a better experience on a future attempt, I’ll be sure to update this review.
