Ever since I fell in love with my Flurry 02 from Tantus I have been obsessed with dual density toys. But I will agree that sometimes the price point can be a bit of an issue, so I have been on the lookout for dual density toys that are in a lower price range. When my sights landed on the Helio from Blush that is part of their Real Nude line.
Blush uses what they are calling their Sensa Feel™ dual density design, made of 100% platinum cure silicone. It is meant to feel firm on the inside but softer and just a bit more lifelike on the outside. The toy is hand sculpted and while it is, of course, phallic, it isn’t hyper-realistic. The base is both harnesses compatible and has a strong suction cup so it can be used in a variety of ways. They also include a microfiber pouch for storage.

What did I think?
So the Helio is actually the first dildo with a suction cup that I have ever used. I used to have one that was made from some questionable materials but I never used it other than something to draw the attention of people peeking in on my cam shows.
I tried the Helio in the shower first, it has just enough room in it. But when I put it on the wall I noticed that where the stiff core ended the softer material had a serious droop. Trying to reach back to prop the toy up so that I could use it came with the issue of not being able to reach it due to in part my shorter arms and my large ass to try to reach around. Getting frustrated I used it freehand instead, one of my notes after simply stating. I had more fun sucking on it than I did for its intended use. The softness of the silicone was actually a rather nice tactile sensation between my lips and was the closest a toy has ever felt to the real thing.
Then I attempted to use it mounted on the wall, but it had the same issue as before just not able to grip it so I could move the angle to get the toy actually inside me. If it was just a little stiffer it would be no issue.
This does not mean that it was a failure, I was still able to enjoy using the toy with my hand. The softness a wonderful warm-up toy for some of my stiffer ones. I actually really loved using it in tandem with my Tantus Flurry O2, the two dual-core toys complimenting one another nicely. The slim Helio before the thicker toy gives my body a chance to be ready for more without overstimulating me. I would even suggest that it could be used if you feel like you need warm up before penetration with a partner as well. The soft round head I believe would also be good for anal if being used in a strap-on. Though I did not get to try it in that fashion yet because the limpness of the toy makes it hard to do it to myself.
Overall, I think that the Helio is a body safe toy that while I was not able to use for its intended use, could be the perfect toy for others. The $38 dollar price point I think would make it the perfect toy for the cam worker looking for a good body safe toy to use on cam without breaking the bank.
Thank you to Shevibe for sending me the Helio in exchange for this unbiased review.
