Review: Colours Pleasures 5-Inch Pride Edition Silicone Dildo

[An arrangement in a pink vase, consisting of a rainbow dildo, a blue flower, two rainbow unicorn lollipops, a pink sign that says ‘I love you,’ and a red heart. In the background is the side of a house, a chair, and an abstract lawn ornament.]

Our dildo collection, for a while, consisted mostly of large or hard toys, and sometimes, that was annoying. It isn’t that I don’t like large toys, or glass toys. I like them very much—which is why they constitute so much of the collection in the first place. But sometimes, I’m not in the mood. Whether it’s because I’m in a stage of my cycle that makes my vagina a little more sensitive, or because of a fantasy involving a more average-sized penis, or just because I’m tired and not in the mood to deal with Captain Girth (representative, obviously, of the mighty Dildo Navy), there are times when I want something on the smaller side.

So, obviously, instead of doing something about this, I just complained a lot for months. Finally, my partner sat my ass down and insisted we pick something out. We knew about safe sex toy materials, so that was important. We had a pretty strict budget at the time, which I believe we set to $40. We also knew we wanted something with some texture, because we both prefer that even on smaller toys. We also agreed that it couldn’t be black, nor a human-realistic color of any shade. We were broke and, if we were splurging a little, we wanted something exciting to look at.

And then a rainbow-colored dildo caught our eye, and we bought it after about fifteen minutes’ deliberation. This was in August 2018. It’s been in regular rotation ever since.

The Colours Pleasures 5-Inch Pride Edition Silicone Dildo is a small, realistically-shaped dildo, with five usable inches, as well as small molded testicles and a suction cup, bringing the whole thing to about 7 inches. The silicone is pretty squishy, almost like a firm stress ball, and with a very smooth finish—with a bit of water-based lubricant, there’s no drag whatsoever.

What the rainbow stripes somehow disguise in pictures is the fact that this little toy has a lot of subtle but pronounced texture in the form of molded veins and wrinkles. The head, though pronounced, doesn’t quite stroke my g-spot because the dildo is so straight, though the sharply distinct corona will sometimes tease it a little. And, of course, the shaft is pretty narrow. So it’s that texture which provides most of the stimulation, and it’s nice. It somehow manages to be consistently, noticeably pleasurable, while staying subtle and gentle, probably because of the softness of the silicone. Even when I’m near my period and my vagina has reached Princess and the Pea levels of over-sensitive, the Colours Pleasures 5-Inch is enjoyable, rather than too intense. But even when I’m at my normal level of tolerance, the texture is still present, and it still feels fantastic.

The little suction cup is a pretty decent suction cup. It’s too thin and easily foldable for using in a harness, but for its actual purpose, it suctions pretty well. I don’t generally use them for my own masturbation habits, so for testing purposes, I stuck it on some walls. It had trouble staying on my bedroom wall. It fell down twice, almost landing on my cat once. However, sticking it to my shower wall was a huge success. I watched all of Jupiter Ascending and it stayed put, completely indifferent to the bomb-ass movie I was viewing a mere room away. I came back and poked at it, squeezed it, and batted at it to see if it would fall off. It was resolute in its suctioning. I decided to keep testing it after that, and eventually I actually forgot that it was there. The dildo stayed on my shower wall for over 24 hours.

Testicles on dildos are heavily preferred by some people, and heavily disliked by others. I’m heavily indifferent to them, but these ones are kind of useful to me. I have some nerve issues with my hands and wrists, and I like having a fairly substantial but not too large grip so my hands don’t cramp up. They also help me keep it oriented—dildos sometimes end up rotating in my vagina while I’m thrusting with them, and whatever G-spot seeking head often ends up off to the side somewhere, where there is no G-spot for it to seek. (Am I the only one this happens to? My partner rarely has this issue.) They’re also big enough to count as a flared base if you intend to use this anally. All anal toys should have a flared base because, unlike the vagina, you can lose a toy in your rectum, and you really don’t want to make that ER visit.

Speaking of which, while this is a very small dildo, my butt can’t handle anything bigger than a small, smooth plug or probe, so I can’t speak of its benefits anally. However, if you’re made of sterner butt-stuff than I am, it’s probably a good choice, due to the fact that it’s a safe material, slim, soft, and the texture is subtle enough not to cause any serious discomfort.

Being a cheaper toy, I have some slight, impossible-to-photograph flaws in the silicone, and since I’d used it before noticing, I didn’t try to return it. They don’t really cause a problem, just makes it a tiny bit more work to clean. Luckily, silicone is hydrophobic, so as long as I pay attention to cleaning, it won’t grow bacteria or mold. And honestly, this toy has a few natural nooks and crannies that require some extra attention while cleaning anyway, so the flaws are not a huge imposition anyway.

The color pattern, incidentally, is fantastic. The colors are really bright, and the lines are nicely distinct, and frankly, I love looking in my box o’ toys and seeing something that looks like a lollipop.

The Bottom Line

If you want or need a smaller insertable, if you want to start buying body-safe toys but you don’t have a large budget, or if you just want something really brightly colored, I strongly recommend the Colours Pleasures 5-Inch Pride Edition Silicone Dildo. If you’re completely averse to texture, obviously you’ll want something like the Funkit NoFrilldo or Tantus Silk, and if you want something for use in a harness, this may not be your best bet. But at the price, it’s definitely worth a try, and if you end up not loving it, you can always stick it in your shower and hang your loofah from it.

  1. Glad this one serves y’all well! They really are pretty. I’m so glad the company makes one in this size and shape – the design of the 6″/8″ ones is pretty girthy, and with a tapered tip they’re less ideal for g-spot/prostate specific stimulation. So huzzah for this one. And at least the balls make it so that in theory an o ring could go in front of them if used in a harness, it just isn’t as visually appealing to some people, and a little insertable length would be lost…
    Also, you’re not alone in dildos losing orientation – I experience the rotationissue too, so I also appreciate when dildos have something about their shape to keep them facing the direction I want (the only one I use that has that feature is the Lust Burster). My beloved nofrilldo B and Maia D3 have round bases and are prone to rotate. And forget about my double ended glass piece not rotating given how glass can get so slippery along with the lack of base XD
    I like how you ended this review with a very good alternative use for the dildo!

    • Yeah, I hadn’t thought of the balls-in-the-harness thing, so thanks for pointing that out. I’m also relieved that I’m not the only one with the rotation problem, haha!

      And hey, it stuck in my shower forEVER, it only seemed natural.

      • Oh, no prob! I’ve had a lot of customers harnessing big, heavy dildos with balls and that’s the only way to make it work for some of them!

        And we’re not the only ones, I definitely remember other people writing reviews referencing toys rotating inside them!

        XD
