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:
- Positioning handles and suction cups for accessibility and ease of use
- A girthier thrusting dildo for both the Velvet Thruster Prime (named Sammie) and Teddy XL
- Swappable heads on the full-sized Velvet Thruster Prime
- More affordable and compact versions for beginners, like the Velvet Thruster Mini Teddy
- A G‑spotty model with a hooked head for kneading the front wall (now renamed Nanci Prime)
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
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.
