This reversible glow in the dark sleeve had me intrigued and waiting with perked eyebrows. I had never really indulged in sleeves, only once or twice in all honesty and never had cared for them. So when it arrived I curiously started to inspect the packaging and the mysterious accessory inside. The package makes a point of saying that it is 'pleasantly scented'. I will definitely say, it didn't have the off putting plasticy smell that many new toys are prone too, although it wasn't what I would consider pleasant. I gave it a quick wipe down with some soap and warm water just in case, while I explored the textures it had. The outside has a combination or ribbing on the shaft and ticklers on the head, while the inside has nubs covering it. My husband joked that the outside reminded him of a morning star, which then dubbed this new toy the 'Shining Morning Star of Plus 5 Satisfaction'. We're DnD nerds, can you tell? There was quite a bit of stretch so I wouldn't worry about fit. It very much looks like it could be a one size fits most sleeve.
After washing it off I left it to dry on a notch of my dish drying rack since I wanted to make sure it air dried thoroughly and the inside wasn't left damp. A returned to it a few hours later once it had dried and, of course, the next thing I had to test out was... can you guess? Does this thing really GLOW? My dish rack has a light setup over it so I was sure it had gotten enough initial light, so I dashed to the bedroom, shut the blinds, and turned off the lights. When they say this sleeve glows, they are NOT kidding! I was beyond elated.
Now, it was time to actually test this baby out! I decided to try it out on one of my realistic dildos before subjecting my husband to it. A little bit of water-based lube on both the toy and poured into the sleeve and I was good to go. The sleeve slid on easily and felt relatively secure, it had a slight suction effect so it didn't slide off too easily, though it did have a bit of slippage and movement. Nothing I hadn't experienced with a sleeve before, so I wasn't worried. The ticklers on the head of the sleeve were great for slit stimulation and the ribbing on the shaft had me seeing starts upon insertion. After one or two big O's, I removed the sleeve and flipped it over to try out the nubs. Side number 2 did not disappoint either. The nubs give amazing stimulation during penetration and insertion.
After I was satisfied and my play time was over, I washed both the sleeve and toy thoroughly and let them dry. Later that night, with some convincing, I got my husband to try out the sleeve with me during intercourse. We laughed, and he felt a tad silly at first, but we pushed the awkwardness to the side and gave it a go. He really enjoyed the feeling on the nubs inside the sleeve, but when we flipped it to try it in reverse, he didn't much care for the ticklers, though that is his personal opinion and experience. I'm sure the sensation would be great for someone else. Although the sleeve did create a new type of sensation for both of us, for him it felt like a decrease in sensation, so he was unable to orgasm while wearing it. (A simple enough fix. We removed it and went about our way when he was done using it on me.)
Overall I would give this sleeve a 4 out of 5 stars. The sole reason I don't feel I can justify a 5 out of 5 is that it isn't quite for us. We may use it again on a whim, but it won't be a regular to our toybox. It's a fun, less serious toy accessory that I would recommend for both singles and couples alike though, since it can be used solo on a toy, or together on a toy or erect penis.
