What if someone told you your orgasms could be electrifying – Would you be interested or terrified? The Tickling Truman from Mystim claims to do just that – it provides electrifying orgasms with a mix of electrostim and vibrations.
Me – well I was a mix of both. The curiosity dinged me on though, so here we are.
The packaging the Truman comes in is rather spectacular. Inside the outer cardboard box is a hard shelled, zipped case embossed with the Mystim logo. The case has a netted compartment which contains sachets of lube, conductive gel and a very extensive instruction manual. As well as that, there is a section to hold the USB charging cable and the Truman itself. It is quite a large case – capable of holding a lot more than what arrived in it. I seriously love decent toy storage and Mystim have excelled in the the storage they provide for the Truman.
The Tickling Truman is approx 10 inches – 6 of those inches is insertable. It boosts a girthy 5.6 circumference and a semi realistic bulbous head. Extra lube is required while using the Truman for two reasons. One – it tends to get slightly draggy in use which is to be expected with silicone and two, the lube acts as a conductor for the E-stim mode.
The Truman is charged via the Mystim magnetic point which is located just above the control panel. The charger with light up red and will change to green when fully charged. It can be a bit finicky, changing colours when it shouldn’t and appear to be fully charged when it actually isn’t so be wary of this when charging it. Think how the Tango disconnects – well this does too and gets colour confused when it does.
It has two motors – which can be used separately or together depending on personal preference. Simply flick through the patterns using the circles button to select which mode you would prefer. These two motors enable the toy to pack a serious punch when it comes to vibration strength. They are borderline buzzy for me at higher speeds though – internally though, it’s rare for me use higher intensities so this isn’t a big deal for me. The vibrations are operated via the twin circle button and are increased/decreased via the +/- buttons. There is five different levels of intensities to go through. The circles button will flick through the various patterns too. The white LED strip light does a flicky motion to show it has changed mode.
Same really goes for the E-Stim mode. The E-Stim button looks like a squiggly line you’d see on a heart monitor. Push on it power it into life. Again, you need to wait for the white LED strip to flick to indicate mode changed – eventually after five pushes the Truman will go into kegel exerciser mode. This is shown by all the white LEDs strips changing colour to green. The vibration mode can also be used while in kegel mode though I prefer it without.
If you read any of my kegel8 posts, you’ll know I rather enjoy internal electrostimulation. It operates on the same idea as TENS and will really work your pelvic floors in a pulsating/resting regime. Like using the estim mode normally, the kegel routine can be increased or decreased depending on how much you can tolerate.
*PLEASE DO NOT TURN ON WITHOUT BEING FULLY INSERTED*
Yes, that is in caps and bolded letters for a reason – you will get zapped and it ain’t in a good way. The shaft as well as you need to be lubed up. Lube is your friend when it comes to silicone anyway but more so when that piece of silicone has the ability to zap you. It conducts the electrostim and to do so needs a thick layer of lube. Please don’t use anything other than water based lube with this toy as you will damage the silicone. Mystim provide you with a sachet of Goldfather – a conductor gel specifically designed to enhance electro sex toys and a sachet of Bonnie and Glide – a water based lube. Both sachets are body safe and don’t contain any nasties.
This toy isn’t waterproof so it needs care while cleaning. Personally, I prefer to wash the shaft and lightly rub the the controls with a toy wipe. I am wary of toys that claim to be submersible.
In use – I like the Tickling Truman but I don’t love it.
I feel I can’t orgasm with unless I team it up with a clit toy of some sort. I like the kegel feature the best and I feel I would benefit from it more if I didn’t already own a kegel8. It is what’s makes the Tickling Truman such a unique toy and for that reason, I would highly recommend it.
Based solely on it being a toy that can zap you while having a wank – the concept sounded amazing. In theory, it just didn’t work how I expected for me.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Betty’s Toybox for sending me the Mystim Tickling Truman in exchange for an honest and impartial review this however in no way changes my opinion on the item.
