RELAUNCH: Velvet Thruster Nanci Prime (FKA Abbey) & Teddy GS

The future of fucking is here with the Velvet Thruster!

With so many new high-tech sex toys, how do you choose a suit­able insertable for you?

That’s where sex toy crit­ics like me come in.

We’re unit­ed in our pas­sion for plea­sure and expe­ri­ence with myr­i­ad toys. At the same time, though, we’re a diverse group of peo­ple with vary­ing needs for sat­is­fac­tion. We rec­og­nize that every body is dif­fer­ent, and that a real­is­tic penis shape isn't the end-all and be-all of sex­u­al pleasure.


More Velvet Thruster models at your service!

For those who love thrust­ing dil­dos, Velvet Thruster’s expand­ed line­up means options for a broad­er range of bod­ies and pref­er­ences than ever before:

You can thank review­ers and influ­encers for that. Our sug­ges­tions and feed­back played a crit­i­cal part in the devel­op­ment and direc­tion of the Velvet Thrusters.

A behind-the-scenes look at the Velvet Thruster's design improvements

In 2019, Velvet Co. invit­ed me out to Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo for a meet­ing with them, SheVibe’s founders, and a hand­ful of fel­low sex blog­gers and con­tent creators.

When they said, “meet­ing,” I imag­ined a ster­ile con­fer­ence room.

What actu­al­ly tran­spired was:

  • Champagne in the back of a par­ty bus
  • Rooftop cock­tails at a down­town LA hotel — the tallest build­ing in the city at the time of its construction
  • Inspecting the com­po­nents of the Thruster — the struc­tur­al "skele­ton," recharge­able bat­tery, and all
  • Discussing sex machine design under a giant sign that read, “JESUS SAVES”

The meet­ing revolved around one big ques­tion: how can we make the Velvet Thruster even bet­ter?


What we wanted from the next-gen contraptions

Across the board, we want­ed bet­ter water resis­tance and a suc­tion cup for the big­ger ver­sion of the Velvet Thruster.

One review­er also sug­gest­ed mar­ket­ing The Thruster’s sex machines as a help­ful tool for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties or lim­it­ed mobil­i­ty. What about a design with a swap­pable long reach han­dle and suction-cup base? And many of us want­ed a thick­er ver­sion or G‑spotty thrust­ing dil­do option.

The mod­el­ing clay on the tables allowed us to take our ideas a step fur­ther. We weren’t just telling Velvet Co. what we want­ed. We could show them how we wanted.


Sculpting a new Velvet Thruster for G-spot stimulation and prostate massage

As a sex toy review­er, I’ve tried many thrust­ing dil­dos and G‑spot vibra­tors. Some made my G‑spot sing, while many oth­ers betrayed my vagi­na.

I didn’t want any­thing too steep, too stiff, or too squared off — I have a long his­to­ry of such designs aim­ing too far past my pubic bone to do any­thing for my G‑spot.

Again, the pubic bone’s shape is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for every­one. Give me a round­ed but pro­nounced G‑spotting head that works for my body!

Here’s the thrust­ing dil­do I envi­sioned and sculpt­ed from mod­el­ing clay:

Off to the side, you can see the begin­nings of Epiphora’s sculpt, too. She stopped mold­ing the clay upon see­ing that what I had made for the Velvet Thruster Nanci was what she want­ed, too.

Key fea­tures included:

  • a slight forward-facing curve
  • a bul­bous tip
  • light tex­ture on the "neck"
  • a sli­i­i­ight­ly flat­tened head to increase sur­face area

Velvet Co. loved it! They 3D scanned my mod­el, tweaked the pro­duc­tion design, and made it into medical-grade sil­i­cone. The Velvet Thruster Nanci's mat­te fin­ish is silky-smooth and com­fort­able to insert with just a lit­tle lube.


Say hello to the Velvet Thruster Nanci Prime and Teddy GS!

The new Velvet Thruster attach­ments aren’t fuck­ing around.

Velvet Co. sharp­ened the inner hook for intense­ly focused stim­u­la­tion of the G‑spot (or prostate) and inter­nal cli­toris. Not every­one will adore the dil­do attachment's promi­nent edge, but it takes the sen­sa­tion to the next lev­el for me.

At the same time, the flex­i­ble shaft's 6" insertable length accom­mo­dates G‑spots of many dif­fer­ent shapes and depths. And, as always, the con­trol but­tons make it super easy to tog­gle through the adjustable speeds and pick the mode for your mood. The beefi­er Velvet Prime model's max inten­si­ty can pound up to 140 strokes per minute!

To sum­ma­rize my Velvet Thruster Nanci (FKA Abbey) G‑spot thrust­ing dil­do review:

“I adore that I get pin­point AND broad stim­u­la­tion in dif­fer­ent spots. The round­ed part of the tip push­es, the flat face kneads, and the sharp hook pulls.

The result? Velvet Thruster’s Teddy GS and Nanci (FKA Abbey) fea­ture a strong shape in a springy mate­r­i­al — a sen­si­ble mid­dle ground between yield­ing and forceful.”

If you’re not in the mood for intense front wall stim­u­la­tion, you can turn it around for deep­er pen­e­tra­tion and cervix massage/cervical orgasms. Or keep it slow and steady to build up arousal; clench your pelvic floor mus­cles around the head. The Velvet Prime will keep going and going with its 8‑hour bat­tery life.

Red-hot relaunch: the Abbey is now the Velvet Thruster Nanci!

With some parts of our busi­ness­es going “back to nor­mal” after COVID, we decid­ed it was time to give my G‑spotting sex machine a red-hot relaunch.

What was for­mer­ly known as the Velvet Thruster Abbey is now the Velvet Thruster Nanci. Its 2021 launch will include 1980s-inspired retro-revivalist pack­ag­ing  — which I also helped design! The holo­graph­ic foil effect will be a spe­cial print­er effect over the pre­view image you see above.

Masturbation May might be long over, but the Velvet Thruster Nanci’s reign is just begin­ning for inter­nal cli­toral stimulation.


Consider experiencing the internal clit magic.
