Vixen Soft ServeAs I’ve previously mentioned, I’m quite fond of ice cream inspired dildos. And even if no ice cream should come in this freakish shade of blue, the sweet idea behind the Vixen Creations Soft Serve is apparent in its wavy shape and delicious name.

In fact, the Soft Serve appeared on my radar a while back, back when it came in a luscious shade of orange. I’m apparently really hung up on aesthetics (either that or I fear change), because my lust for the Soft Serve fizzled when I saw the new blue color. One thing hadn’t changed, though: the deliciously textured shape. My vagina would appreciate it, I knew, even if my mind was preoccupied with images of the orange version.

The Soft Serve is stout (5 1/2″ long) and not too thick (1.25″ in diameter), but its swirls are very pronounced. Unlike the old Soft Serve, which was made of super soft VixSkin, the new blue Soft Serve is made of regular pure silicone. Still, it is pretty flexible. Texture is its forte, and the small overall size of the dildo allows for much thrusting, and much stimulation from the ridges. Even light thrusting produces a pleasurable sensation. Really, any movement at all makes the swirls noticeable internally, which is wonderful for a texture slut like me.

Although I’m not one for dildos up the butt quite yet, I did try the Soft Serve anally. As expected, the texture continued to feel delicious. I can imagine that those who love texture and who love thrusting in the ass would really, really like the Soft Serve. So it is great for both vaginas and asses! Woo!

I also couldn’t help but compare the Soft Serve’s stimulation with that of the similarly ridged (and much adored by me) Tantus Echo. The Soft Serve’s ridges feel more abundant, I’d say, while the Echo’s feel larger. The Soft Serve is a much more petite dildo — shorter and thinner than the Echo — and thus more ideal for warm-up. The Echo is definitely more of a finisher, but the Soft Serve is a seriously solid option for maximum stimulation with minimum girth.

I always welcome more warm-up dildos, especially textured ones, and the Soft Serve fills that niche nicely. Alas, it’s not orange — and let’s face it, I may always fantasize about that beautiful shade of orange — but my vag doesn’t discriminate.

Thank you, Vixen Creations!

Sadly, the Soft Serve has been discontinued, but there’s still the Tantus Echo, Fun Factory TigerTantus Goddess, Good Vibes Rippler, Tantus Charmer, and Tantus Purr.

    oooh… i really really want this now. the swirls look delicious, and i do like the blue, and the echo is one of my favorite dildoes. i’d sorta like to try it with soft vixskin though

    i just realized it’s been discontinued from edenfantasy’s? whyyy 🙁

  • @Wilhelmina: Sorry, should’ve been more clear. The orange VixSkin version has been discontinued. The blue, regular silicone is new and will be popping up in stores everywhere soon.

  • Mimi

    Oh man. That orange is spectacular – too bad it has been discontinued.

    Good review. I don’t have a whole lot of experience with texture yet so this paints an understandable and helpful picture of the product.

    Did you use a condom or an enema prior to using it anally? I’m curious about the crevices which seem to want to collect “stuff”.

  • @Mimi: Yuh, I used a condom on it, since I plan to use it as both an anal and vaginal toy. The crevices do seem to collect some gunk, I’ve noticed. It’s always hard to thoroughly clean something shaped like this.

  • Mimi

    @Epiphora: I figured. It’s hard to imagine it NOT collecting something. In my opinion, a bit of a mess isn’t enough to make an experience unpleasurable, so bring it on. I ain’t scared.

  • Wilhelmina

    @Epiphora: oh, good to know 🙂

    I’m curious if you still love this one. I’m sure it’s held up well being a Vixen product and all.

  • Selective Sensualist

    I’ve never seen this dildo before, but it looks AWESOME! (And, yeah, it would be even more amazing in orange — like orange sherbet soft serve . . . ).

  • sophie2229

    Now I want a popsicle.

  • Bri

    Yay!! Blue!!! Green would be even more awesome, but hey, it’s not pink.

  • Crystalline

    :O Oh man, they should totally make a dildo that looks like an ice-cream cone. The two rounded ‘domes’ of the ice cream on top of the cone handle, with maybe bumps representing (LOL) nuts or sprinkles.

    I like the orange better, too. The blue is a bit electric. >.O

  • @Crystalline: O. M. G. Best idea ever.

  • Tmcaurinus

    Why… Why does your blog have to do this to me. Any chance you still have this and want to sell it, or know anyone who does?

  • Sorry, nope!

  • FieryRed

    Ah well…maybe someday Vixen will bring some of their classics back. I emailed them not long ago, desperately seeking an Orbit, and they tried, but said they must have lost the mold when they moved to their new location. So sad. (Fortunately I happened upon an acquaintance who was willing to swap it!)
