Hey folks! A couple of months back I was contacted by online sex toy retailer Sohimi about reviewing something from their catalogue. I, of course, immediately zeroed in on their sex dolls because I’ve never had the financial opportunity to try one and always wanted to know if they were worth the investment. You can purchase the Life-Size Masturbation Doll, which retails for $239.99 USD, discussed in this review, or browse other toys for people with a penis in Sohimi’s online store.
Note: Sohimi’s site uses cisnormative language in their listings and advertising of their products, which may be uncomfortable for some queer and/or trans individuals.
Dear readers, I am extremely excited to introduce you all to the newest member of my polycule: Antica [they/them]!
To some, they may be naught but a disembodied midsection made of medical thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), complete with butthole and vagina, however, to me they are so much more. That’s because in the short time that Antica has been a part of my home they have not only been a fun new toy for me to play with but they are now a celebrated fixture of my place.
Straight up, Antica is fucking awesome. I love them. I’ve fucked them a lot over the last month and honestly can’t get enough of them. I think it’s fair to say at this juncture that Antica is one of my favorite toys that I’ve ever owned. I imagine my younger self could have used them every day and felt completely and utterly sexually fulfilled in ways that no other sex toy or masturbation technique could have possibly provided. In that sense I kinda wish I had them while I was struggling through college, deep in the closet, with major depression and anxiety keeping me feeling crushed, and isolated at home.
But oh well, I have them now and honestly this toy has been a tremendous addition to my sex life both on a personal level with self-pleasure (I’m having better orgasms with Antica than with any wand or sleeve I’ve used before), as well as with my partners as Antica has made for a great group sex and non-monagamous play companion during COVID-19 times when both of those things have been unattainable for us.
It’s also really cool that since they’re life-size I can put them in cute panties or booty shorts if I want! It just all adds a little extra to the experience.
One of the most striking things I noticed about them right from the beginning was just how incredible detailed they are. Like, Antica has hands down the most realistic looking and feeling vulva, clitoris, and skin I personally have ever seen in a toy of this kind before. There are fucking razor bumps on their pubic mound, for fucks sake! Even their tummy, waist, thighs, hips, and butt are perfectly imperfect with how soft they are, yet textured with little hair follicles and goosebumps to feel as natural as possibly given the materials used.
It’s honestly fucking mind blowing. Uncanny valley here for me tbh!
While there are two penetrable passages built into the toy, the ass is 11 centimeters deep and the vagina is 13 centimeters, I definitely prefer their butt because it’s tighter and the internal texture feels more pleasurable to me. Depending on the day, my mood, and the fantasy scenario I’ve concocted in my head, fucking Antica in the ass can make me cum in a matter of minutes. Seconds, if I went at them hard enough, but I really taking my time, edging myself, rubbing myself against their vulva, and teasing their holes. They really do feel that fucking awesome! And I gotta admit… pretty damn close to the real thing (but not that close).
Though it really is a shame that they’re just a midsection here. I can’t help but feel a truly full sized doll of this quality, or better, would be even more incredible. I think what I’m getting at here is that I really, really actually want to fuck a android. Or a RealDoll. That’d be cool too.
The main downside for me is how heavy they are! I couldn’t find the exact weight listed anywhere but holy shit, I’d say they’re at least 25 lbs. While advertised as a mobile toy I’d actually argue that Antica is not a companion that you’re going to want to be lugging around in your luggage or on road trips very often. 90% of the time that I’m playing with them I have them lying on a flat, elevated surface like my bed, the couch, or a table. Any time I’ve tried to fuck Antica by lifting them myself my arms have gotten so tired from it that I often resort to just opening and closing my thighs, allowing gravity to do it’s work in helping get me off.
For these reasons, cleaning Antica has also often been cumbersome. Getting them over to a sink after having ejaculated in them is fucking exhausting and trying to position them under the facet can sometimes be a chore. More often than not I’ll just bring them into a shower with me after use, which, while much better than using the sink, is still a bit of a challenge as I don’t currently have a removable shower head so I still have to deal with lifting and positioning them for cleaning.
Not that this is necessarily the fault of Antica themself! I mean, they’re a fucking life-size sex doll, so, yeah, that’s reasonably going to mean that they weigh a fair bit. Plus it makes sense that having both a penetrable ass and vagina it’s obviously gonna mean that cleaning them is gonna take a little work. Still, I’m tired after fucking and they’re heavy and I don’t want to have a damn shower to clean out my sex doll after every use, but here we are.
Is what it is, I suppose. And even with that in mind, I’d still recommend them in a fucking heartbeat.
More Than Just a Toy
Masturbation potential aside, Antica is also just fucking awesome to have around the house.
They currently live on my work desk and serve as both a fidget and stress toy during my days working remotely from home. Throughout the day I squeeze their butt, give them little slaps to watch the jiggle, and essentially stim with them in a variety of ways that help a great deal with my ADD and fidgeting needs.
On top of that they’ve really upped my nudes and lewds game as while flirting with my partners and play friends because I literally have this toy to use in explicit photos while we’re talking about how I’m going to fuck and breed them later. It’s amazing! I also see a lot of potential with them for stock photos here on the blog, which is exciting as that’s a thing I’ve struggled with overall. Like, being able to take a bunch of super explicit nudes with a prop partner, of sorts,
And yeah, you know what, it’s kind of fucking weird shoving my girl cock into with what feels and looks like the soft, squishy, midsection of a person. Especially considering how realistic it is. Kinda creeped me the fuck out at first. But that’s where your creativity comes in! If it makes you feel a little uncomfortable fucking disjointed, plastic body parts designed to be like the “real thing” then do what I did and name them! Personify them and treat them as more than something you worry might be found in the freezer of that unsettling neighbor they keep talking about on that true crime documentary you’re watching.
Antica mostly works for me as a toy because I’ve made them more than that to me. They’re one of my play friends now too!
Overall, this is genuinely my favorite masturbation aids that I’ve ever owned and for those of you able to dish out the funds, cause it’s pretty steep at $239.99 USD, I can say that it’s well worth the investment. Not gonna lie, this also sets a new bar for me on a personal level for review items, cause I’m wanting more things like Antica going forward!
