Blush Novelties Temptasia Elvira / Luxe Mio review

The Temptasia Elvira is one of the best body-safe dil­dos under $25. Its sil­i­cone is buttery-smooth with very lit­tle drag, it’s girthy, and the coro­nal ridge is well-defined.  The design is in many ways min­i­mal, but enough to stim­u­late my G‑spot and some­times A‑spot.

I con­sid­er the Temptasia Elvira (and its pur­ple coun­ter­part, the Luxe Mio) the “lite” ver­sion of one of my favorite dil­dos: the Avant D4. These dil­dos have the same firm­ness, same silky mat­te fin­ish, same max girth. Along with the Avant D5, they also have very sim­i­lar­ly shaped heads. The most appar­ent dif­fer­ences are that the Elvira is smooth-shafted, angled, and shorter.

Whereas the Avant D4 is the stan­dard 7″ of insertable length, the Elvira is 5.5″. And some­times, that’s all you need. After all, most peo­ple’s G‑spots are less than 5″ inside (mine is about 2″ inside my vagina).

Temptasia Elvira’s G‑spot head

The Elvira’s head pops out just as much as the Avant D4’s but isn’t as sharp; it hugs my G‑spot slight­ly more gently.

Most of the G‑spot pres­sure comes from the coro­na as I jig­gle or slide the Elvira back and forth. Because the head is so flat, it’s more a toy that I pull against my G‑spot or knead it with, than a toy that I thrust direct­ly into it. The head shape is much appre­ci­at­ed when com­bined with the full girth, per­fect for tilt­ing even more steeply at my G‑spot and clench­ing around when I come.

It gives me that gor­geous kind of orgasm where I keep com­ing and com­ing back-to-back as long as pres­sure is main­tained, with min­i­mal thrust­ing. The shape, size, and rigid­i­ty are great for that, with­out being too over­whelm­ing for fre­quent use.

However, using the Elvira on myself isn’t effortless.

Downsides to Temptasia Elvira and Luxe Mio

Blush Novelties Temptasia Elvira side view

For one, it does­n’t have much of a G‑spot curve. Though the shaft is at an angle rel­a­tive to the base, it does­n’t make much of a dif­fer­ence when thrust­ing. I still have to tilt the head for­ward and base back A LOT for my G‑spot to get some­thing intense out of it.

If I want to take advan­tage of the angle, I put the Elvira on a flat sur­face or sex toy mount to ride. Otherwise, I think it’s best as a part­ner toy. My part­ner has an eas­i­er time thrust­ing it in me than I do. Plus, I could see angle being handy for easy G‑spot aim­ing when in a strap-on harness.

And, let’s face it: if the head is flat and there isn’t much cur­va­ture, the length does make a dif­fer­ence when try­ing to tar­get the right spot. Consider that the Vixen Randy is about the same length as the Elvira, but its head is more round­ed, and its shaft is a bit more bent.

Even if you’re not tak­ing the entire length, angling the toy demands some­thing to hold on to and push. I have a shal­low G‑spot, so this isn’t a huge deal to me. However, I would­n’t rec­om­mend this dil­do to peo­ple with short arms (unless they’re flex­i­ble), or to plus-sized peo­ple who need more reach.

An entirely fair trade-off for an affordable dildo

For rid­ing or part­ner use, I real­ly can’t com­plain about the quality-to-price ratio. Even though the Elvira is too short and blocky for cervix stim­u­la­tion (my favorite kind), I can appre­ci­ate a good deal when I see it.

I get it: if this toy were longer, that would demand using more sil­i­cone and dri­ve up the cost. When plen­ty of peo­ple care more about girth than length, hav­ing a slight­ly short­er toy for $24 is a fair trade-off. The less sil­i­cone you use, the more the man­u­fac­tur­er saves mon­ey and pass­es the sav­ings on to you.
