Picture the scene, Joanne wakes up on a cold Christmas morning and goes to unwrap her presents. Perfume, nice, new sexy underwear, nicer, a Blush Novelties Avant D3 Silicone Dildo, OMG, this is the best Christmas ever!

Unbeknown to me, Patrick from Latex, leather and Lace had sent me a surprise Christmas present through my partner. It was a fantastic surprise. When I opened the package up, and I have to thank him from the bottom of my heart. It really did make my day.

You see, I have reviewed two other Blush novelties products (Avant Pride P5 Butt PlugBlush Real Nude Sumo) and they were pretty much amazeballs. I love the designs, the colours and of course their performance and I have had my eye on the D3 for a while now.

Needless to say, I used it on Christmas Day (I suppose that makes me a very naughty girl). After countless orgasms now I feel that it is now time to give this dildo a review.

Packaging

I can’t comment on the delivery this time as it was a surprise. But, I will say that every time I have received something from Latex, Leather and Lace the discretion and speed or delivery has been excellent.

You can always rely upon Latex, Leather & Lace to package your order in plain packaging so your Postie will have no idea how big your dildo collection is actually becoming.

The box of the Avant D3 Summer Fling Silicone Dildo is sublime. I love boxes with clear windows for two reasons. Firstly you can actually see what you are getting and more importantly, you can appreciate the scale of the sex toy.

Often I have opened up sex toy packaging to find the product smaller or larger than expected as catalogue and box pictures often have no indication of scale to them.

This box is beautiful in its simplicity, the eyes are drawn to the window where you can feast them on the curves and colours of the Avant D3. This dildo is just too beautiful to hide away in a closed box.

The box carries product information on its size, and the pictographic format is easy on the eyes and easy to understand.

The outer box slides off to reveal the Avant D3 securely held in clear plastic packaging. One lovely thing about opening silicone dildo boxes is the absence of any chemical smells.

Design and Materials

The Avant D3 is what I would describe as a medium to large dildo. So it is not suitable for anyone who is really tight down there. However, if you enjoy larger than norm dildo, then this is one to try. It isn’t huge, but it is definitely filling in the most delightful way.

The Avant D3 is hand sculpted and poured, the smooth flowing lines and curves give it an elegant look that compels attention. It even has a five-year warranty which is pretty fantastic.

The curves and bulges of the Avant D3 are what makes it so good

It measures in at 8″/20cm long of which 7.5″/19cm is insertable. Having a diameter at its widest point of 1.75″/4.5cm and a girth of 5.5″/14cm this is a very pleasing dildo. The

Featuring a broad suction cup base that is also strap-on harness compatible. This makes it a versatile dildo with lots of play options.

This suction cup is very strong and means that with a kinky imagination. You can get up to all sorts of fun with it, not to mention shower or bathtime enjoyment with it. It also makes it so easy to hold when thrusting with it.

 

The Avant D3 is made out of a fantastic blend of body-safe Platinum Cure Silicone. As you will know silicone is my go-to material for sex toy due to its non-porous surface. The fact that it is both latex and phthalate free, making it hypoallergenic is fantastic.

The colours really pop and give the Avant D3 a unique and bright appearance that just looks so warm and inviting.

The head of the dildo is nicely rounded but not really tapered which makes insertion a lot of fun. I relish the feeling of pressure building up as I push it in before my foof starts to dilate to take it. I never get tired of the sensation of a nicely proportioned dildo opening me up.

The rounded tip makes insertion a very pleasant experience

The main event though is the delicious textures of the D3. While subdued in terms of veins (there are none) and the natural texture you find on dildos the two bulges in the otherwise smooth shaft are designed to tease and please and they do the job so well.

The blend of silicone used has an excellent level of squish when squeezed. But it is still a reasonably rigid dildo. It doesn’t droop much when held by the suction cup horizontally, but it has enough flex to make it comfortable and very enjoyable to use. If you have a flat plate adaptor, the Avant D3 can be used on a fucking machine.

Cleaning after use is simple as with all silicone dildos. Just wash it in warm soapy water and use an anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner. Ensure it is thoroughly dried before storing it in your bedside drawer or back in the box. The silicone is a bit of a dust and lint trap but not so much as with other dildos I own.

Performance

I really enjoy using the Avant D3, from the moment I feel it press against my vagina between my labia I just want to thrust with it.

My prefered method of masturbation is definitely thrusting, and I love silicone dildos with texture. I worried that I wouldn’t enjoy the Avant D3 as much as I do before using it. Generally, I prefer lots of texture, but those bulges really hit the spot for me.

I use a good water-based lube such as Sliquid H20 or Secret Play Natural Water Based Lube with the Avant D3 and find that both last a long time. The silicone just glides when you are well lubed up and thrusting feels incredible as the different diameters stretch you as you thrust with it.

It is the bulges on the shaft of the Avant D3 that makes it so much fun

You can get a lot of different sensations just by altering the orientation of the dildo. It provides some very intense g-spot stimulation if you use it with the broadest part of the glans uppermost.

The suction cup base makes a very comfortable handle no matter how quickly you thrust or for how long. I found that it was easy to control and use the Avant D3 using the base this way.

You can vary the sensations by just thrusting shallowly or deeply, and this dildo feels incredible. It keeps me wanting more and I often try to put off my orgasms when using it as it just feels so good.

Use it with a clitoral vibrator for some very lovely blended orgasms.

Using it in the shower I found that I needed to use a hybrid lube as waterbased lubes just get washed away. I was delighted with the performance of the suction cup, and I almost fell over when I came. Note to self – use it on the floor and not the walls next time.

I also enjoy using a mirror to watch myself playing with it as this dildo is pure eye candy,. Its bright, vivid colours look amazing. There is something so kinky about watching each colourful ring disappear from view before re-emerging coated in juices.

This is a dildo that is going to appeal to a lot of people. Yes, I say people and not just women as we all have holes that this can be used on. Dildos are gender-free sex toys. It is too big for me back there. But for anyone who can take it, I am sure that those bulges are going to blow your mind.

Summary

The Avant D3 is a dildo that surprised me. I thought it was going to be good, but its smooth nature put me off getting myself one as I thought it wouldn’t be for me. How wrong was I? The gentle flowing lines of the bulges on the shaft coupled with the amazingly oversized glans really feels fantastic.

The Avant range of dildos from Blush novelties look and feel incredible. They are going to be a surefire hit and are ideal for anyone who likes their sex toys to look as good as they feel. Another Avant dildo that I think is going to feel amazing is the Colours Pride Edition 6 Inch Silicone Wave Dildo
