Blush Temptasia Trixie vs. Velvet Thruster Teddy GS self-thrusting dildo comparison
Remember that G-spotty Velvet Thruster dildo attachment I helped design in 2019? (Of course, you do; there’s an old picture of me and my ass on the packaging.)
Blush Novelties made a more affordable rebuttal, the Temptasia Trixie handheld fucking machine.
With its smaller price tag ($99 vs. $166) also comes a smaller stroke length and insertable portion than the Velvet Thrusters. That raises the question: is the Blush Novelties Temptasia Trixie worth its bang-to-buck ratio?
My short answer: I wish it was. The main thing you need to know is that it doesn’t work for me. Straight up.
This Blush Temptasia Trixie review will elaborate on why that is (foreshadowing: Kegel game too strong!) — and why the Velvet Thruster Teddy GS still has a special place in my heart.
Blush Temptasia Trixie vs. Velvet Thruster Teddy GS shape and construction
- Buttery-smooth matte silicone exteriors
- Accordion-style shafts that expand and contract
- Bulbous, off-center heads, about 1.5” across
- Flattened face on one side for kneading the G-spot
- Flexible necks
- USB rechargeable batteries
The general idea of a G-spotty self-thrusting dildo with a luxe finish is there, but in execution, they’re pretty different.
Velvet Thruster’s Teddy GS and its big luxe sibling, the Prime Nanci, have such steeply hooked heads that they can be used as crochet hooks.
(To the dismay of TikTok’s moderators, I did crochet with the Teddy GS for a video.) The Thruster’s G-spot attachments are sharp and square and not here to fuck around.
In contrast, the Temptasia Trixie’s G-spotting head is more like a flattened egg. You won’t get as defined, pinpoint pressure on your G-spot. That slightly subdued sensation could be a welcome change for a few reasons:
- Your G-spot doesn’t like the fine focus and would rather have broad or diffuse pressure
- You’re prone to G-spot toys grinding uncomfortably on your pubic bone
- You have a low-set cervix and want a more general toy that can also target the A-spot
On the flip side, if you want more targeted stimulation, the Velvet Thruster Teddy GS and Prime Nanci were made for you.
There’s a reason I specified “low-set cervix” in the previous section: the Temptasia Trixie has less insertable length. Its dildo portion measures 4.5” long, while the Velvet Thruster Teddy GS’s measures 5.75” (and the Prime Nanci’s measures 7.25”).
Velvet Co.’s self-thrusting dildo attachments are much easier to aim toward the user’s cervix or A-spot, if that’s what they desire. I like turning it back, so the non-hooked side massages my cervical os.
The Temptasia Trixie’s handle gently swells for easy holding in one’s palm, while the Velvet Thruster Teddy GS was decidedly meant for propping against surfaces and using hands-free. Such functionality is reflected in its suction cup and button placement.

Controls and settings
Blush Novelties’ Temptasia Trixie thruster has one button at the bottom, making it unsuitable for pushing up against, say, a hard floor while riding cowgirl-style. Meanwhile, the Velvet Thrusters were made for that. They have one on/off button and two for speed control.
While the Temptasia Trixie offers 3 thrusting speeds (120 to 144 strokes per minute), the Velvet Thruster Teddy series has a wider range with 6 settings (60 to 125).
As any seasoned vibrator user knows, speed isn’t the only relevant factor. Movement depth matters, too! The Blush Temptasia Trixie stroke length is 1.25”, while the Velvet Thruster Teddy GS (and TX and XL) pounds away with a 2.5” range of motion.
Last but not least, the Blush Temptasia Trixie’s fatal flaw is that it stalls jarringly easily. Velvet Thruster’s Teddy GS might plummet from 125 to 80 strokes per minute, but it still keeps going. Meanwhile, the Temptasia Trixie wilts under pressure and stops entirely at times.
I push the Temptasia Trixie against my bony AF G-spot? Stall. Stop. I go deeper with it? Stall. Stop. I clench the slightest bit when I experience pleasure? Stall. Stop.
Unfortunately, the Temptasia Trixie’s motor can’t even take me up to the plateau; it stops before climax is even in sight, let alone ever taking its chance to cross the apex. Nope.
Even my way, way, way, early pre-cum squeezes are too much for it to handle. Even my pubic bone and my walls are too much.
Closing thoughts and further reading
I wanted to like the Blush Temptasia Trixie but can’t recommend it in good faith. Good thing there are plenty of other self-thrusting dildos I adored!
Get the following thrusters at Romantic Depot
It’s the “I can’t stop coming” kind of dildo that I’d set aside time to use all night.
Dual-density realism. Short, punchy strokes. See my Naked Addiction 9″ Thrusting Dong review for more details on how great it is!
BIG NEWS: I’ve found The One. No, I’m not getting married, but I’m just as star-crossed to have discovered my rabbit vibrator soulmate.
Best for those with closely spaced clit, vag, and G-spot, and who don’t mind a mechanical feel. The California Dreaming Orange County Cutie is very similar to my Santa Cruz Coaster rabbit vibrator, AKA MY DUAL STIMULATOR SOULMATE.
Other shops’ thrusters I’ve thoroughly enjoyed
- Velvet Thrusters
- 20% off with code SUPER20
- Velvet Prime thrusters are more customizable and powerful
- The Teddy series is more compact and costs a little less
- See my Velvet Thruster Prime vs. Teddy comparison
- Fun Factory Stronic Surf and Stronic Real
- Less realistic thrusting, more jiggly, jostle-y pulsating. All awesome.
