I’m always hunting for something unique and interesting to add to my ever-growing collection of sex toys. For quite some time now, Lovehoney Sqweel has appreciated my interest, and my new friends at CanadianSexToys.ca recently sent me one for review!
The Sqweel arrived promptly and came in cute packaging— always a good beginning for a relationship. Everything is nicely laid out in a velvety insert when you open the nifty hinged tin box. I was saddened that there was no lube sample with which it was supposed to come. I like samples of lube. It was deceptive, but it doesn’t really matter. Obviously the Sqweel is the main feature here.
So. It’s the Sqweel. It is, in a nutshell, a simulator for cunnilingus. Basically, a 10-silicone motorized wheel whirling lapping tongues, embedded in a hard plastic shell to simulate oral sex. Genius! This toy is not vibrating or thrusting with that said, and is intended for external stimulation.
First, the specs: the diameter of the Sqweel is about 41⁄2 “and about 11⁄2” thick. The shell is made of plastic ABS which gives it a silky, velvety feel. A shell section can be easily popped off revealing the silicone tongue wheel and then replaced during storage to protect the tongues. Each tongue at its widest point is 1 “long and 1” wide. They’re soft, squishy, flexible. It is possible to disassemble the entire unit and clean it thoroughly. The side panel rotates open so that the silicone wheel can be lifted for cleaning, washed with warm water and an antibacterial soap, then left out for drying. The Sqweel itself, because it has a battery compartment, is not waterproof, so just wipe it clean with a damp cloth.
It is powered by 3-AAA batteries when it comes to batteries. It’s quite simple to insert the batteries. Just slide off the cover, pop into the batteries, and slide back on the cover. At the end is the power switch. Three speeds are available; low, medium, and high. Slide the switch into any of the desired settings to turn it on and it starts spinning. Just switch it off to the off position to turn it off and it stops quickly.
The low is just that for speeds — a very low spin. It’s not doing a lot for me. The high is pretty fast, and quite scary indeed! For me, medium is where it is. It emits a mechanical sound and is probably ideal for those who like to masturbate down-low. It’s not the quietest toy, but it’s also not too loud. It gets louder with each level that increases.
It’s a sex toy you have to use your imagination in… and a lot of lube1. Place some water-based lube in your hand palm. Turn the Sqweel down and lower it slowly into your palm, allowing the tongues to lap the air. You’re going to shoot lube off your hand if you put it on high, so don’t do that. To avoid dragging, you want to get them nice and slippery and you might even want to add some lubricant to yourself. The weatherier, the better!
I suggest you start your journey slowly and work up. There is not much pressure needed and the wheel stops when too much pressure is added. I found that allowing my clit to touch only the tips of the tongues provides the best stimulation. Once you get used to it and relax it feels pretty good and can help you get an orgasm. It actually feels like a lapping tongue and almost like oral sex when you close your eyes— minus all the nibbling and sucking goodness. Personally, it doesn’t take me from the beginning to the end, but it’s a nice intermediary. It doesn’t necessarily give you the exact feeling that someone is going down on you, but I like the feeling— it feels interesting and is definitely unique.
The Sqweel is a fun toy and I own the most interesting sex toys. Experimenting with all the various angles is fun and it has enough zip to do the job. It fits easily into your hand and is very easy to use. BONUS! While it needs to get used to a little, I think it’s pretty amazing considering how close it’s to feeling like the real thing!
Canadian Sex Toys, thank you!
