Ripple from Babeland

The Ripple from Babeland is the perfect mash-up of two of our favorite butt-toys. This is awesome because sometimes you just can’t decide exactly what it is that you want to put in your ass.

The bulges on the Ripple somewhat mimic anal beads, see? And its overall shape is it a bit like a dildo, right? Where else can you find a marriage of such compatible partners?

The Ripple would make a wonderful toy for someone just starting out with butt-fun. One of the things that’s both frustrating and amazing about beginning anal play is that it’s absolutely necessary to start small — but if you like it small, you’re probably going to want larger and larger toys pretty quickly, and that can get expensive.

Starting with the Ripple might allow the user to get the capabilities and sizes of a few different toys in one package, thereby freeing up money to buy even more sex toys. Money for more sex toys? Always a good thing.

I had a friend use the Ripple on me vaginally; like other Tantus silicone toys, it has enough firmness to rub all the right spots. Of course the Ripple isn’t really meant for the vagina, so my friend and I quickly moved on to other activites.

Later, when I was on my own, I tried the Ripple anally. This is probably not a toy that will work well for long-term wear, not only because it would be too prone to sliding out, but also because the round base is designed more for grasping and less for between-the-cheeks comfort.

But for short term use, it worked very well. I really liked the bloops, which replicated the fun of anal beads without the messiness and bother of a flimsy string. Also, unlike traditional beads, the bloops on the Ripple can be inserted and pulled out as many times during a session as your greedy little behind desires.

High-quality silicone is the way to go for anal toys. It doesn’t absorb stains or odors, and it can be sterilized between uses or partners. Unlike cheap jelly or rubber toys, the Ripple will remain in great condition throughout years of sex play.

For a rank amateur, the Small Ripple would ease the way most gently. Someone with a bit more experience will be happiest with the larger size. In either case, this unique toy delivers interesting and pleasurable back-door fun.
