The Captain is a pure silicone dildo. It’s non-porous, hypoallergenic, and latex free, making it body-safe. It can be sanitized so it’s a good option for sharing between partners or using both anally and vaginally as long as you sanitize it between users/uses. The silicone used for the Captain is a soft, matter silicone with a fair amount of squish to it. The matte silicone does create some drag but with a good water-based lube, the drag isn’t noticeable in use. I was surprised by how much softer it was than the Bullseye, a dildo from the same company. The softness of the silicone makes the girth of the Captain seem less substantial in use. It’s the softest dildo I own. Keep in mind, I’m a huge fan of firm materials so this isn’t a surprising statement. My collection consists of glass, aluminum, or firm silicone. The Captain is 7.5 inches long and 1 and 7/8th inches in diameter. The Captain is widest at the top and narrows slightly towards the base. It’s veins and ridged head provide a realistic appearance.
The first time I used the Captain, I was too excited to try it right then and there. With enough water-based lube, I was able to use it without warming up. The girth was easily manageable and immensely pleasing. It provides a full sensation without making me feel stretched or painfully stuffed. I found that this dildo works better with slow and steady thrusts. Fast thrusting can make me go numb and then I can’t feel the girth or the softness of this dildo. The first time, my partner was also using the Captain on me. When he was in control, I noticed that the head did catch on my pubic bone quite often. The ridge of the head is pronounced enough that it can easily get caught with the right angle. It was annoying but it’s not painful for me. When I’m in control of the Captain, I find that it doesn’t catch my pubic bone nearly as often. When it’s used in my Liberator BonBon, it never catches on my pubic bone. When using it in my BonBon, I’m also able to handle the full length of the Captain. For thrusting, the BonBon allows me to utilize the Captain to its fullest.
So far, my favorite way to use my Captain is with the Wahl attached to the bottom. The largest attachment for the Wahl makes a good suction cup that sticks well to flat bases. It sticks onto the bottom of the Captain and transmits deep, rumbly vibrations through the whole dildo. It’s an awkward contraption to thrust but when it’s simply inserted and vibrating, the Captain stimulates every area of my vagina. Prior to trying this odd makeshift vibrator, I had only experienced one or two vaginal orgasms before. They’re hard for me to come by and it’s a fact I’ve grown to accept. The rumbliness of the Wahl combined with the soft girthy silicone that is the Captain quickly led to an orgasm that required very, very little clitoral stimulation. I was really surprised by how fast and easy I came this way. It’s ugly, it’s bulky, it’s awkward, but it’s amazing.
