Review: L’Acier Capo and Slide stainless steel vibrators

I ordered under­wear that reads, “This machine does not know the dif­fer­ence between met­al and flesh, nor does it care.” That’s how much I love stain­less steel sex toys.

L'Acier Slide and Capo Stainless Steel Dildo Review

“L’acier” means “the steel” in French, in case you were won­der­ing. And this review of the L’Acier Capo and Slide might as well be summed up, “AAAAAAAAAAAA.”

I’ve reviewed plen­ty of met­al and glass toys before, but the L’Acier line was my first expe­ri­ence with stain­less steel vibra­tors. The L’Acier Capo, Slide, and Reverb dil­dos all come with bul­let cav­i­ties to slip a recharge­able bul­let inside — or not.

Also includ­ed are two han­dles. If the posi­tion­ing aids look famil­iar, it’s because the same par­ent com­pa­ny makes L’Acier as The Thruster. One of the han­dles is angled for eas­i­er reach when mas­tur­bat­ing while lying on your back.

You don’t need super long arms to use these toys. And that’s notable when the L’Acier Slide is a loooooong­boi — about a foot long. I don’t know why it’s so lengthy, but I like going deep with it vagi­nal­ly against my A‑spot. The han­dles do make these steel dil­dos safe to use anal­ly, too.

How the steel dildo shapes feel in use

The L’Acier Capo dildo’s head is semi-realistic — designed after a penis but styl­ized for extra impact. There’s a sub­stan­tial con­trast between the glans and the sulcus/dip underneath.

The result? Intense hook­ing. Its flat­tened head kneads just past the pubic bone, while the curved coro­na can press onto the ure­thral sponge a bit more. For G‑spotting with this dil­do, I pre­fer to use short­er thrusts, pulling the head on the “out” stroke. The front-loaded and forward-facing tilt also fits the for­mu­la for best toys for A‑spotting and cervix stim­u­la­tion.

L’Acier’s Capo fea­tures ample insertable length, is firm, and comes with a han­dle — all fea­tures that fur­ther make it ide­al for deep penetration.

To com­pare and con­trast, the L’Acier Slide is slen­der and mod­er­ate­ly curved. Its first bulb is slight­ly more volup­tuous than the rest, and you can use the bend to push against your prostate or A‑spot if you wish.

L'Acier Slide stainless steel anal beads

The L’Acier Slide was made to be rigid anal beads to stretch and con­tract around, though I like using them vagi­nal­ly. Just look at that length and cur­va­ture. Mmmmph, delight­ful for depth play. Cue drool emo­ji. (In con­trast, the njoy Fun Wand and Pure Wand are more for shal­low pen­e­tra­tion.) It’s decid­ed­ly pin­point, though, which isn’t ide­al for mas­sag­ing the cer­vi­cal os.

L’Acier’s stain­less steel dil­do line also includes the Reverb: a vibrat­ing steel plug with a tapered tip and bent shaft to make it very butt-safe. I have yet to use that one, though.

Additionally, pop­ping on the fin­ger loop base makes nav­i­gat­ing the vibrat­ing bullet’s con­trol eas­i­er. One but­ton cycles through the ten set­tings. There are three steady speeds and sev­en pat­terns, one of which is a fast-pulsing stac­ca­to rhythm.

As for whether the motors add to the pen­e­tra­tion sen­sa­tion, I could take them or leave them. The vibra­tions have mod­er­ate strength but are very buzzy.

Hypothetically, you could swap the Slide’s bul­let for an Exposed Nocturnal or Realm Silver Bullet. Don’t quote me on that, though; I would if the orig­i­nal vibe wasn’t so chal­leng­ing to take out. As for the Capo, its bul­let cav­i­ty is a bit wider, so I don’t have the right size mini-vibe to fit that slot.

Perks of stainless steel dildos

It’s a good thing that L’Acier’s stain­less steel dil­dos pack a punch with or with­out vibra­tion. You can cred­it how heavy these toys are.

As with all steel toys, the mass allows them more force and momen­tum, press­ing hard­er against your walls. They’re also unyield­ing, mak­ing them eas­i­er to aim against high­ly focused hot spots. (I’m look­ing at the Slide.) Moreover, you can put stain­less steel dil­dos in hot or cold water for tem­per­a­ture play sensations.

It’s a double-edged sword, though. What makes stain­less steel dreamy to me as a dil­do mate­r­i­al makes it a night­mare for oth­ers. It’s heavy! It’s slip­pery! The unfor­giv­ing nature of steel can be uncom­fort­able for some users!

Your mileage may vary. I think hard mate­r­i­al dil­dos are under­rat­ed. Their slick sur­faces mean little-to-no need for lube. The heft is intense. The rigid­i­ty allows for more precision.

If you’re in doubt, exper­i­ment with some glass toys before try­ing stain­less steel dil­dos. I know what I like, though, and I think met­al sex toys are so, so under­rat­ed. I love the depth, for­ti­tude, and gus­to when I get stuffed — all things the L’Acier Capo can provide.
