This toy is OK, but I like the Tex better. With its pointy tip, the Inner Band Trainer Large is a good warm up for the H-Bomb and Tex, but a cheaper dildo with a decently large girth will do the same. If you have the Tex, probably no need for the Inner Band.
This toy is an excellent idea. The shape allows it to be an entry point for anybody, not just those interested in being able to stretch to the full 3Ã¢â‚¬Â wide. However, I would go with the regular inner band trainer and not the firm model. It is just TOO firm, so much so that can mildly bruise the tip of oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s tailbone from the pressure, and also inhibits stretching progress by making the area between the toy and the tissue being stretched so tight that it squeezes all the lube from between that space and creates a relatively dry spot, even with oil based lubes. A softer firmness allows for the pressure to be exchanged in more of a back-and-forth manner between the tissue being stretched and the object doing the stretching, which actually speeds up progress and feels unbelievably good.
TLDR: the shape is an ingenious design, but this firmness is TOO firm.
