For my first review of 2013 I decided I wanted to go with something unusual and special, something I had my eye on for a long time, something to set the tone of the new year. I headed over to EdenFantasys and picked up a dildo I had wanted for quite a while but hadn’t been able to justify purchasing. A new year is a good reason to buy a new dildo, isn’t it? Of course it is. So without further ado, meet the amazing Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo. Readers, Jellyfish. Jellyfish, Readers.
Now that we’re all acquainted, let’s get down to business. The Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo is made by a small company based in Maine called, you guessed it, Whipspider Rubberworks. The included insert, as well as the Whipspider Rubberworks website, informs me that this little company is owned by three friends who pass their time hand casting each sculpture in silicone and non-toxic pigments. It is always great to see such high quality sex toys from a small American company, especially when said toys are manufactured in the United States.
The high-quality silicone of the Whispider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo is soft and smooth and squashy. It has a significant amount of drag so definitely use a good water-based lubricant. Stay away from silicone-based lubes as they can cause a negative chemical interaction with the silicone of the dildo making it tacky. I always warn about this because I think it would be awful to ruin a perfectly good silicone sex toy this way. In the case of the Whipspider Jellyfish, it would be an an absolute travesty.
As the Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo is made of this squashy silicone, it is super easy to care for and clean. You can wash it with warm water and antibacterial soap, use a sex toy cleaner, or a 10% bleach solution. With no moving parts in the Jellyfish, you can also wash it in the top drawer of your dishwasher with no soap or boil it for three to five minutes to sterilize it. Boiling it and cleaning it with a 10% bleach solution disinfects the Jellyfish so it can be shared with non-fluid bonded partners. It also allows the Jellyfish go from anal to vaginal use. The Jellyfish has a large, flared based that makes it safe to be used anally and permits it to be used in a strap-on harness.
Now, onto the Jellyfish Dildo itself. Let me just start by saying that this is absolutely the most beautiful dildo I have ever seen. The colors are impressive and the detail is simply extraordinary. The workmanship is astonishing. I have a fair amount of sex toys in my collection and I have nothing that impresses me as much as the Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo. I expected it to be pretty cool, I mean, it looks cool online. I just could not have imagined how striking it would be in person. I am not sure it is possible to appreciate the Jellyfish as much online as when you are actually holding it in your hand, which is something I rarely say about sex toys. Most of them do a decent job of translating in pictures but images of the Jellyfish fall short of the real life experience, and I’m just talking looks, not use.
The colors of the Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo are bright and vivid. There is blue, pink, purple, and white, and each melts into the other while still standing out on its own. There is an amazing amount of texture provided by the detailing along the shaft of the Jellyfish. There is also a fair amount of detailing carved into the base of the Jellyfish Dildo, along with a cool carving on the top of the head. The head of the Jellyfish is large and bulbous and shaped like the body of…well..a Jellyfish. The tentacles drape down the shaft, which is slightly curved in a very aesthetically pleasing way. Underneath the base of the Jellyfish is a carved out Whipspider, or a tailless whip-scorpion, which is the logo of the company.
At 7″ long, with 6″ being insertable, the Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo is about average in length. However, it is on the larger side girthwise, at 1.75″. I enjoy girthy toys so this width works for me. As I mentioned before, the silicone is super squashy, even bendy. The Jellyfish Dildo is pure silicone with no hard inner core so it really doesn’t feel quite as large as 1.75″. It’s so soft, in fact, I can bend it in half. I thought this would make the Jellyfish too bendy for thrusting but it doesn’t at all. It’s actually very easy to thrust with and the base is comfortable to hold during play.
In use, the Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo is as good as it looks. It is very easy to hold and thrust with and the silicone is super soft and luxurious. The Jellyfish is so thoroughly textured that I feel the tentacles against my labia with each thrust. I feel the larger texture of the shaft inside me as well. I happen to really like textured sex toys but if you don’t or are on the fence, avoid the Jellyfish at all costs. I am not sure if the slight curve to the shaft is supposed to help the Jellyfish Dildo hit my g-spot, but it does not, which is fine with me. I am getting plenty of stimulation from the texture. I don’t expect it do everything possible, that’s asking an awful lot from one little (well, not so little) dildo.
The packaging of the Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo is minimal. It comes in a plastic bag with a card that has very basic information on it. It gives you a blurb about the company, tells you how to clean the Jellyfish, and warns you to keep it away from sharp objects. This is excellent advice considering how soft the Jellyfish Dildo is. Normally I like my fancy packaging, especially with more luxurious products, but I actually find this next to nothing packaging totally acceptable. As Whipspider Rubberworks is such a small company it makes sense and I’d rather them invest the time and money in making their phenomenal toys rather than on packaging that just gets recycled anyway. At least there is a bag I can use to store my Jellyfish Dildo in so it doesn’t smush up against other silicone sex toys or get dusty.

I have mentioned before that I prefer my sex toys to be colorful, fun, and unusual. The Whipspider Rubberworks Jellyfish Dildo fits the bill on all levels. There is nothing about this dildo that says penis, other than the general shape, which makes me very happy. I really cannot say enough about the high quality of this dildo. The detail is amazing, the colors are fantastic, and I love using it. Overall, the Jellyfish is the most awesome dildo I’ve ever seen. If I could only have one dildo in my entire collection, it would be the Whipspider Jellyfish. Now I totally want to try out more Whipspider Rubberworks products.
