Have you ever wanted a rainbow-​striped dildo?
Of course, you have!
Blush Novelties Avant Pride P1 Freedom

Blush Novelties' Avant series is so full of, "fuck yeah!" and the recent Avant Pride con­tin­u­a­tion gives me even more eye can­dy to geek out over.

As the name might have hint­ed, the Avant Pride col­or schemes are based on some pride flags of the LGBTQ+ com­mu­ni­ty: gay pride, les­bian pride, trans pride, gen­derqueer pride, and so on. All the toys are cast in small batch­es of striped sil­i­cone. And they're all qual­i­ty, body-​safe basics for super cheap.

The line has since expand­ed to include bi pride, bear pride, and so many others!

The Blush Novelties Avant Pride P1's Shape

Out of the six designs, I test­ed the rainbow-​striped Pride P1: Freedom. The P1 and P2's shape reminds me of the LELO Gigi's G‑spotting head, but more round. It fea­tures a slight­ly flat­tened, bul­bous head, about 1.4" wide. Under the head, the shaft tapers down into a very thin (less than 1" wide) neck, and towards the base, ramps back up to 1.45" wide.

The Avant Pride P1 at its nar­row­est is even slim­mer than the 1" wide Gaia Eco. But despite what the shape would suggest…

…don't expect intense G‑spot stimulation from hand-​thrusting the Pride P1!

Hypothetically, the shape would be aaaah-​mazing for my G‑spot, if only the sil­i­cone weren't so flex­i­ble! Like the Avant D5, it's medium-​firm and has some squish to it, but the Avant Pride P1's thin neck reaaal­ly empha­sizes the floppiness.

If I lie back and thrust the P1 with my hand, it does zilch for my G‑spot; the bendi­ness means that I can't angle the toy in any mean­ing­ful way. If the Pride P1's size and head shape appeal to you, anoth­er beginner-​friendly but firmer G‑spot toy would be the Tantus Sport.

What about mounting and riding the Pride P1?

The P1's sil­i­cone flex­i­bil­i­ty lacks inten­si­ty but makes up for it in com­fort, both for vagi­nal and anal use. I whol­ly advo­cate press­ing the strong suc­tion cup against a hard sur­face or putting the base in a mount and rid­ing it.

Strangely enough, that makes it a lot more intu­itive for me to aim the Pride P1 against my G‑spot. However, I can't advo­cate it as a begin­ner G‑spot dil­do. Yeah, the sub­tle G‑spot stim­u­la­tion can get me off, but that's because I've been BFFs with my G‑spot for a looong-​ass time and know it very well.

For other kinds of stimulation, I'm conflicted about that swell near the base

There are two main things that the ramp­ing increase in girth near the bot­tom is suit­able for:

  1. Clitoral grind­ing if you want some­thing inside while you grind on the outside
  2. Sphincter stim­u­la­tion dur­ing anal pen­e­tra­tion, par­tic­u­lar­ly if you're using the head for your prostate

Myself, I find it stim­u­lat­ing for my cli­toris and ure­thral sponge. When I insert the dil­do all the way in for cervix stim­u­la­tion, the bump stretch­es my vagi­nal open­ing and adds so much to the sensation.

If that's your thing, I'd in a heart­beat rec­om­mend the Pride P1 as a toy for explor­ing mod­er­ate­ly deep pen­e­tra­tion. Why? Though it's not long and can't bot­tom me out, the shape is what works for my cervix. The head is bul­bous enough to press gen­tly against it from behind, but it's squishy and flex­i­ble enough that it wouldn't be as uncom­fort­able to some­one new to fornix stim­u­la­tion.

Final thoughts on the Blush Novelties Avant Pride P1 dildo

I don't rec­om­mend the Pride P1 (or real­ly, any Avant Pride toy) as a begin­ner G‑spot dil­do. However, The P1 and P2 are silky-​smooth, afford­able, basics, great for gen­tle prostate stim­u­la­tion, grind­ing against one's cli­toris, or just some­thing to clench around. You get live­ly and dynam­ic col­ors cast in a mate­r­i­al that will last a life­time. That goes for every toy in the Avant Pride series.

And that's noth­ing to shrug off. Blush Novelties is once again ahead of the trend, adding body-​safe sex toys to the mar­ket that are both appeal­ing and acces­si­ble. With the Avant Pride line, they've tak­en basic designs and made them vibrant­ly unique.

    I lust after these so, so much. The rain­bow is gor­geous. (On a con­cep­tu­al lev­el though, I do not under­stand the les­bian col­ors on a real­is­tic design. That seems like a mis­match. There should be a non­re­al­is­tic one with the labrys design to match, at least.)
