Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour Review

By Pleasure Panel reviewer Louise Lace

I was selected to review the Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour (available from Amazon.com and Amazon.de) as part of the Pleasure Panel hosted by Cara Sutra. I have wanted a suction cup dildo for a while so I couldn’t wait to give this a thorough workout.

Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour Review Pleasure Panel-1

My parcel arrived in a slightly squished jiffy bag, I think it may have had an eventful journey from the Cara Sutra HQ. Inside, the Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo box was dented and the glue holding the sides together had come apart. The hygiene stickers were still in place at the ‘open here’ edge and I am absolutely confident that Cara would not have opened the item before posting, I put this down to rough handling by Royal Mail. Hands off postie, its mine, all mine!

The box is a combination of black and pink with the Tracy’s Dog logo on all sides. There is no product name (I had to refer back to the Pleasure Panel forum for the actual name of the dildo for this review) picture or description on the box. It could easily be mistaken as a box for a hair straightener, curling iron etc. The base of the box has QR Codes for those of you who are tech savvy, which lead to the company website and their Amazon brand page.

The Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo box contained a Product Test Report which gives some scientific information about the product, which I confess to being ‘over my head’ but I am sure some more scientifically minded people will be able to decipher the results.

What I can ascertain is that the Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo is actually manufactured from Silica Gel, and not Silicone as suggested by the product name. My only knowledge of Silica Gel is those little packets that are found inside new handbags and shoes to prevent moisture from damaging your purchase. Those packets clearly state not to eat the contents! Not that I intend to chew on the dildo, but not wanting to risk using a potentially dangerous sex toy either, I did a quick Google search of Silica Gel.

The first couple of results informed me that Silica Gel is thought to be a porous material. Now I am no expert, but I am led to believe that this is not a good thing when it comes to cleaning and preventing bacteria spores forming on your insertable sex toys. So whilst the box has a CE Mark and informs me that “All products of our company is certified safe quality products” and the company website states the product is “…100% Liquid Silicone one-piece construction, the material which can be used to make pacifier, food grade, safe, odorless, and very soft to the skin. With FDA, ROSH, SGS Certificate, Phthalate & Latex Free, skin safe...” it basically lists everything but non-porous 🙁

The possibility that the Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour is made from a porous material makes me not want to take any risks, so I ensured a condom was used with this dildo to avoid any potential irritation to my nether regions. When storing my Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo after use, I tucked a few condoms into the pouch to remind me that they are needed when next used.

The Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour was wrapped in a zip lock bag which was placed within a faux suede, grey, draw string storage pouch featuring the Tracy’s Dog logo embossed in silver. It was a snug fit and when not in the zip lock bag the Silica Gel drags on the faux suede material, collecting lots of fluff in the process. I’d recommend using a zip lock bag as well as the pouch for storing and rinsing the dildo before use to remove any particles from its surface.

Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour Review Pleasure Panel-6

The Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo is two-tone in colour. There is a central magenta purple post which is made from slightly firmer Silica Gel with an off-white outer layer which is softer and quite squishy. The central post doesn’t run the full length of the dildo, the suction cup, testicles and tip are opaque in colour which looks a little peculiar. The Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour is quite bendy and required a firm grasp to insert even when mounted by its suction cup.

The suction cup is well designed and works perfectly on a variety of surfaces, from tiled walls to table tops. It held firmly when in use; I was able to lift a dining chair off the ground just by pulling on the mounted dildo. The suction cup required a finger nail slipped under the edge to break the seal between the two surfaces to release it.

Hubby and I also tried the Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour with my strap-on harness and even with the suction cup base it was a comfortable fit. The base and balls rested against my skin behind the harness’ o-ring and stayed in place throughout our session.

The head of the dildo is disappointingly small: a mere inch in width at the ridge and just over half an inch at the very tip. This barely makes an impact on penetration, even when used anally. The details on the dildo are very subtle, the ridge of the glans is raised and the veins on the shaft are plentiful but the soft material makes them barely noticeable when in use, especially when using with a condom. The length does offer some satisfaction, the pointy tip can reach the G-spot and anally it feels quite filling – but in all honesty I was really noticing the lack of girth during use. The widest point of the shaft is around 1.5 inches.

Not wanting to write the Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo off just yet, I tried a variety of positions from doggy style against a wall, squatting over a low table and whilst sat at the dining table. I did find that inserting the dildo upside down allowed me to use the balls to grind against my clit but generally the soft features were not bold enough to provide the stimulation that I needed for orgasm.

I’m afraid both hubby and I found this to be a ‘warm up’ dildo and to enable climax we had to switch to another, more girthy toy. This, in addition to my doubts over the safety of Silica Gel for internal use, the small-ish dimensions and softer density of this dildo means that sadly we wouldn’t recommend this Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour to others.

Overall we would rate this product 5/10. Had this dildo been manufactured using 100% Silicone, like some of the alternative -but similar in price and design- dildos that are available from other online suppliers, we would have scored it a minimum of 7/10 based on the Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour’s current design and size.

Thank you to Cara and Tracy’s Dog for providing me with the Tracy’s Dog Liquid Silicone Dildo in Two Tone Colour via the Pleasure Panel for review.

Amendment: 29 July 2016

Tracy’s Dog have since been in contact to state that this product is made from silicone and not silica gel as stated in the test report included with my product.

Tracys Dog have said that a typing error occured with the original test report and they have since issued an amended report to Cara which clearly states this product to be silicone.

At the point of reviewing I only had access to information that was provided to me; their website  – which does not claim the product is non porous and an ‘incorrect’ test report.

Whilst I find it hard to believe a Senior Laboratory Engineer and a Technology Manager would sign off a test report which had a typing error in the material section, I guess these things can happen we are human after all.

To give Tracy’s Dog the benefit of doubt, I have to take their reassurances that the second test report is correct this time and the product is manufactured from silicone.

With this in mind, I amend my rating to 7/10 based on the material used to manufacture the product as I suggested in the original review.

Editor’s Note

Buyer beware: It has become apparent that the Tracy’s Dog manufacturer are being at best cagey & at worst downright dishonest about the materials used in their sex toys & intimate use products. For a thorough examination I recommend you read respected sex toy reviewer Dangerous Lilly’s post here before making up your own mind. I personally will not be using any of the Tracy’s Dog sex toys, and all CaraSutra affiliations with this manufacturer have ceased as of January 2017.

  1. I did as much research as I could on “silica gel” as it seems to be a material claim only seen on the shady brands on shady sites like Amazon, Alibaba, etc where one could potentially crack it up to a “translation issue”, so I purchased items from Amazon that claimed to be “silica gel” in the description. Not only did my research show that silica gel isn’t a soft material that could be used in sex toys, but a good portion of these said silica gel / silicone as the material description. I flame tested them – two out of three failed (http://dangerouslilly.com/2015/10/ask-lilly-silicone-vs-silicon-vs-silica-gel/).

    I find no evidence, anywhere, that “silica gel” is a material. The fact that they lied on Amazon is not a shock, but is very telling.

    This isn’t a company to trust. Going on my Blacklist.

    • Thanks Lilly – I wish there was some easy way to find out exactly what all their sex toy were made of. I have sent a few Tracy’s Dog dildos to the Pleasure Panel but there were also a couple of vibrators, a rechargeable wand vibrator and a penis masturbator. I’m like Louise as she said in the review – silica gel is those small hard beads you get to soak up any moisture in new shoes or new handbags boxes and packaging – I can’t see how the same stuff would make a soft, comfortable dildo. It’s also not a material I’d want to put inside me.
      Thanks again for looking out for us all with your ongoing research and I’ll let you know of future Tracy’s Dog reviews as they become published in the hope they’ll help us get some answers.
      -Cara
