I was initially kind of excited to try out this new stroker from Maia: the Piper Vibrating Self-Heating Silicone Masturbation Sleeve with Suction. Peepshow Toys sent this masturbator to me in an exchange for an honest review. Out of the box, it was solid, sleek, and seemed like a higher-end masturbation toy. Last year I’d reviewed the Falcon Ninja Heated Stroker, which — while quite a bit shorter — has a similar black case/hot pink sleeve thing going on. I loved the Ninja’s heated interior and was hoping the Piper would give more of the same, only in a deeper sleeve.
My initial impression was pretty positive. The case seemed solid and the sleeve was made of thick, smooth silicone. The interior was so deep, I couldn’t even slide my fingers all the way into the bottom. With all its bells and whistles, the Piper is rechargeable and comes with a USB charging cable. Before use, slide the metal prong into the hole in the base and wait for the red light to stop pulsing. Once it’s done, you’re ready to power it up.
I used Sliquid Sassy lube with the Piper, but any good water-based lube would probably work well. The toy is kind of heavy, even by masturbation sleeve standards, but Maia has designed a nice curve to the back end of the case, which makes it comfortable to hold. There are three control buttons along the front of the case and each one operates a separate feature: vibration, heating, and suction.
Now I noticed on my first inspection of the toy that there’s a little pinhole at the bottom of the sleeve. I’m curious if I activate the Suction mode, will the air somehow be magically vacuumed out of the sleeve and create a halfway decent blowjob sensation? I made sure to have as much of my dick crammed down into the Piper’s sleeve as I could manage before trying out the Suction function. I clicked the button, and something whirred to life. I heard a quieter humming, kind of like a vibrator, but after the battery has run down. I don’t feel anything. No suction, no sensations, nothing. I click the button again, several times. I can hear the whirring grow faster, and then change speeds. It seems to have similar “patterns” like the vibrator, but — since I can’t feel anything — I’m not really certain what’s happening when I switch things up. It all just feels like it did before I turned it on.
A look inside…
I pulled my dick out of the thing and pressed my face into the orifice. I figure I need a good seal over the opening, which — as you remember — isn’t flat, so how the hell am I going to find a way to completely seal it tightly. I’m determined to make this work, but at this point I realize I’ve got a chunky masturbator pressed firmly around my mouth in what seems a hopeless attempt to to give myself a mechanical blowjob.
Needless to say, I couldn’t get the suction to work. It almost felt the air was blowing out of the little hole in the bottom. Perhaps if the orifice was flat and I could obtain a good seal, something would actually happen, but when I felt jaunty little puffs of air on my face, I realized it was probably a lost cause. I mean, if you have to use your mouth to figure out if your masturbator is doing its job, it might be time to give up. Anyhow, if there needs to be a good seal over the opening to make the suction work, I don’t think it’s going to happen when the rim of the orifice rises and falls like a roller coaster track.
I wish the Maia Piper had been a better experience. I had hoped that a deeper sleeve would make a positive difference, but in this case, it really didn’t. I’m sure like any sex toy, there will be some who like it, some who love it, and some who can’t figure it out. I guess I fall into the latter category on this one. So, for now, the Piper will be put away, but I’m sure I’ll pull it out some night when I’ve got a raging hard-on and want to give things another shot. If I have a better experience on a future attempt, I’ll be sure to update this review.
