L’Arque Prostate Massager Review
Hey so a few years ago I was totally in the dark on prostate toys/prostate massagers. Maybe this is you now. It was actually the Miss that brought up the idea of pegging (her using a strap-on on me) that introduced me to the magic of prostate orgasms.
She made me practice alone with a dildo to see if I even liked it before proceeding to more kinky stuff.
Holy shit I liked it. I liked it very much!
So that’s cool. I’ve discovered a fun part of my body to play with that isn’t my meat stick. I’ve been trying lots of different dildos, vibrators, and butt plugs to see what works best for me. I thought I’d share one such toy that has been getting a great deal of use in the Bobs&Knobs household lately.
Here’s the short and sweet. I know you probably have shit to do:
- It’s a good anal toy for beginners and advanced users
- The material is silicone, so it’s safe to stick up your butt
- There are 3 speeds and 4 vibration variations
- It’s waterproof
- It’s USB rechargeable w/4 hours play time
- Width = 1.25″
You can buy it or check out more reviews and details on the L’Arque at Adam&Eve.
The L’Arque Prostate Massager
This is a butt toy from Adam&Eve that is designed to stimulate the prostate gland. So it goes up your rear and curves to vibrate right on your P-spot for a bunch of toe-curling goodness.
If you know absolutely nothing about butt stuff, check out a post we wrote recently on Butt Plugs. It’ll get you up to speed on your own anatomy and what is safe up there!
Caught up? Rad.
One of the things that drew me to L’Arque in the first place was the handle. I mean the thing looks like a fricken joystick! I’m not going to straight up admit that I’ve pretended I was a pilot in flight simulator whilst having alone time, buuuuttt… I might have. Seriously though, the handle is really comfortable to hold. The way you hold it isn’t really for thrusting (going in and out), but rather more for rocking (moving the toy from front to back). This means you can focus on pushing the tip hard up against your P-spot.
The controls are on the top of the handle and you can easily turn it up/down with the click of your thumb. This is a great spot for them. It’s the worst when you’re in the middle of things and your finger slips and changes the vibration intensity or pattern.
It’s waterproof. Now, I’m not one to take relaxing bubble baths, especially with my sex toys. Do you know why it’s really fucking important that anal toys are waterproof? To wash them! Because this is a vibrator that goes in your asshole, it needs to be washed. Nothing fancy, just soap and warm water.
If you’ve ever tried washing a sex toy that isn’t waterproof, you will know that it’s a shit show to try to keep water contained in only one spot. So, thank you L’Arque.
The fact that it’s made from silicone means that it’s not porous and that’s also a really good thing for toys that go up your butt. Some materials (like jelly toys) have small pores that can trap bacteria and fungi. Trust me, you do not want to be growing a science experiment on your rear end sex toys!
At the widest point, L’Arque is 1.25″ across. It’s actually on the smaller size. Looking at pictures, I thought that it was going to be quite a bit bigger when it arrived. I think this size works out just great. It’s a tapered tip so it’s easy to insert with a bit of lube and then it’s just wide enough for you to feel full.
L’Arque doesn’t take batteries. Instead it is USB rechargeable. A single charge can last FOUR HOURS. This is probably one of the most important reasons why L’Arque is one of the best prostate vibrators for men just learning how to please themselves.
Let me explain:
When you first are playing around with your bum, it’s going to feel really good. You’re going to want to try to extend your “pleasure time” before you bust a nut and want nothing to do with sex or sex toys for a little bit.
As you get better at finding out what your prostate likes best, you’ll realize that you can probably have a hands free (no penis touching) orgasm and you’re going to be spending a LOT of time with your vibrator buzzing in your bum. I’m not saying you’ll need the full 4 hours of battery life, but you certainly wouldn’t want to run out of juice after only half an hour or so. You also don’t want to have to buy millions of batteries. A rechargeable, long lasting battery life is essential for this type of toy. Sadly, you don’t always get this with these types of prostate toys.
ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
I think if I could improve L’Arque, I would make it just a little bit more powerful for vibration with a few more speeds. Currently, there are three different speeds and 4 different vibration variations (think like different morse code patterns). I think the best vibrating toys are those that your “comfort” spot is right around the middle level vibration. When I’m using L’Arque, I start at the middle level and move to the highest level to get the job done. I’m not finding that it’s lacking in power but I wonder how a more intense vibration would feel with this toy.
In the End
I think there’s a reason why these toys are marketed as “prostate massagers.” I’m sorry, but “anal vibrator” just doesn’t sound appealing to me. Bum Buzzer could have some potential though!
In the end, this prostate massager does exactly what it claims to do: It massages your prostate and it feels pretty fucking amazing. It’s easy to hold, it is waterproof and has a kickass battery life!
I think it’s a great toy for beginners to experiment with because of the relatively small size and ease of use but it’s also good for anyone that’s just looking for a new prostate toy.
