The Ash starts out with a very steeply tapered glans-like top about a third of the insertable length. ¾ of the back of the glans-rim is textured with smoothly rounded, yet pointed spikes. The intensity of these spikes is even higher through the significant drop from the glans to the body.
The body has half-barrel shape. The backside of the toy is almost straight down while the front arches from the tip of the glans outwards with the apex at 2/3 of the insertable length. The lower half of the front is textured with a symmetrical cluster of bumps. On the backside below the spikes around the glans 2/3 of the body is lightly textured with shallow vertical grooves.
The base is thick and wide for a secure stand and is decorated with a fantasy texture of bumps. As an option you can add a suction cup and/ or a Vac-U-Lock hole to the bottom to attach your Ash to a fuck machine or use one of the many accessories like suction cups or handles for even more vigorous manual fucking. Speaking of options: Ash comes in four different sizes (Quick note on the size chart: The firmer, the toy stands straighter so the actual sizes of the individual toy can vary).

While I am at the topic of choosing your perfect Ash, Organotoy usually has a small stock of ready-made toys. But what sets them apart from any other toy manufacturer is the wide range of customizing for your toy. You can choose the firmness freely between Shore 00-30 (plushy!) and A30 (hard vinyl) depending on your taste. For the Ash I would recommend something between A5 and A20 because it needs the firmness to press the right spots. When it comes to your toy’s color, your imagination is the limit. Besides the wide range of colors they offer which can be either applied solid or marble or fade or whatever, a former Holldywood SFX makeup artist is in charge of custom airbrush coloring.
All toys are made with ISO 10993-10 certified platinum silicone which meets the highest standards of body and allergy safety. Naturally these toys are easy to clean with hot dish soap water and sanitizer for uncomplicated yet safe fun with several different partners. Though being made out of silicone lube-wise you should stick to water- and oil-based lubes. The silicone oil inside silicone lube will damage the toy!
Before I dive into the hands-on part, a quick word on the pictures for this review: The toys this review is based on were from the first batch ever cast, basically late prototypes. Because of this the toys have imperfections like busted air bubbles. The finished product does not have this kind of imperfections (I will post pics on Twitter as soon as I get my Ash in Shore A30 ?).
Playing with the Ash
While the nicely tapering glans implies Ash to be a good beginner’s toy, this first impression is deceptive. Actually the complex texturing makes it a toy for more experienced ass player.
The most noticeable feature is the big drop below the highly textured glans rim. This part of the toy is designed to target the prostate (and as a FTM member of my testee panel says also the G-spot). The dullish tip of the glans along with the steep slope is perfect for applying pressure to these delicate body parts with high nerve ending density. Especially the small and nimble size S is handy for stimulating the perineum part of the prostate. For more intense stimulation of the prostate, the spikes on the glans rim come into play. The next escalation level is moving the spikes perpendicular to the prostate. This takes some training to keep the toy in place and not go too deep. A bit easier and even more intense is scraping the prostate with the ridge. Most intense (and popular among my testees) was combining the two movements by twisting the toy when moving the ridge over prostate.
The same effect can be applied to the anus. But the shape of the toys makes it prone to be sucked through the sphincter, especially when well lubed. So it takes some dexterity to keep the glans rim positioned inside the anus. More interesting for this, yet another nerve ending high density body area are the two different textures on the body. The upper vertical grooves are perfect for twisting inside the anus. The lower bumps both come into effect when twisting and riding the toy, adding to the stretch sensation when moving up and down on it. Due to the texture, riding the toy over extended periods of time will make the anus looser compared to a smooth shaft. Yet due to the texture, Ash is again not a toy for novices who want to get a sloppy as. Before trying to conquer Ash, a smooth, round plug with half a centime larger diameter should fit comfortably.
Finally a word on the suction cup which on my Shore A10 form Large astonished me: It does not look deep but god does it have suction power! Even when vigorously riding, regardless if mounted on the floor or the wall, Ash stayed in place!
Where to buy?
Oragnotoy only sells through their website which due to high level of customization is only logical. They usually do not have a small number of toys on stock but getting YOUR individual toy is more fun. Ash costs between 19,96€ in Small up to 139,96€ in XL. Depending on the firmness, color, etc. the price will be a bit higher.
