American Twist Silicone Dildo From John Thomas Toys

Written by  Nov 07, 2023

A dildo with a subtle twist for you to enjoy

John Thomas Toys (JTT) asked if I would like to review some of their latest creations, and I always look forward to seeing what they have created.

I jumped at the chance to review some more items from JTT. I may have yet to learn what they would send, but I knew they would be made from high-quality silicone and would be interesting designs.

"I like the shape of American Twist; the tip makes it easy to start inserting it, and the girth quickly builds up, providing a nice stretch in use."

JTT have a vast variety of designs and sizes of dildos and stretchers available in platinum cure silicone, which is an ideal insertable material. JTT even offer a no-quibble lifetime warranty on their creations.

This is a review for American Twist, a sleek and stylish dildo that feels as good as it looks.

Delivery & Packaging

Once I was told the boxes were on the way, I did not have long to wait before the courier was at my front door. Opening the door, I was greeted by a few large plain boxes. I do appreciate the discreet shipping method that JTT uses.

If you do not want your neighbours to know you are buying quality dildos from JTT, you can rest assured. The delivery will not tip them off. The label does not even have the name of the website on it. The plain brown box is robust and taped up well, extremely well, in fact.

I opened the box in front of a camera; inside was brown packing paper holding the dildos still during transit. There were all four sizes of the American Twist dildo. Each dildo is wrapped in a transparent heat-sealed film. The film has three stickers: the JTT logo, one to remind you to wash the dildo before use, and the last sticker to tell you the firmness rating.

Inside the box were also four of the JTT vac-u-lock compatible suction cup holders, plus four JTT faux velvet storage bags inside a reusable branded plastic carrier bag.

I like the minimalistic approach to packaging that JTT uses. It means much less waste, and to be frank, if these dildos were boxed, you would need some huge boxes.

Materials and design

Using copper moulds JTT, ensure that every dildo produced from that mould will have precisely the same features as the first ever one. This is a much more expensive manufacturing method than others used in the industry, but it ensures the quality of each dildo pulled from the mould.

American Twist lives up to its name with the lovely twists in its design. It is shaped a little like a torpedo with a thin tip, then gently expanding to a width that continues down the entire length. With several grooves cut out of the silicone at an angle around the shaft.

American Twist features gently twisting ridges that feel great in use.

The base expands and features the JTT logo on one side and the full name on the other. Underneath is a vac-u-lock compatible hole, giving you lots of play options.

Made with platinum-cure silicone, a body-safe, non-porous material. This is my preferred material for insertable toys. It is both latex and phthalate-free, which is important for insertable toys.

Silicone is a robust material and excellent for temperature play. Try warming it up or cooling it down in a bowl of water before use for some exciting sensations.

The silicone blend used for American Twist is ncie and flexible as you can see with this one which is the small version. They do get stiffer as the sizes go up though.

JTT also provided a free vac-u-lock compatible suction cup holder. These are black and work amazingly well on a clean, flat surface like tiles.

I also received a faux velvet storage bag for each dildo. These bags are made with a strong, thick black faux velvet material. One side of the bag has white printing of the JTT logo and name. The bags have a drawstring closure. The bags are very well made and hold the dildo securely and safely between play sessions to keep them clean and lint free.

I received all four sizes of American Twist, and the range of sizes from small to large is vast. JTT provide accurate and complete measurements on their site, and I always say check them out thoroughly before making a purchase so you know you can handle the one you choose.

Performance

I always some water-based lube to my American Twist dildo, I find sliding the tip easily inside my waiting pussy very easy. The smooth, silky silicone glides easily through my vagina walls with the tapered tip definitely aiding inmsertion.

The nicely tapererd tip aids insertion, especially if using this toy anally.

I have enjoyed some great play sessions. The grooves give me gentle sensations when I use the dildo in a straight in-and-out motion. When I need more intense sensations, I add a twist to take advantage of its shape.

I was sent the soft firmness, which gives a lovely squish without losing the width of the dildo. The feel of twisting the dildo whilst moving it in and out is fantastic.

Holding the large base makes it easy to pound my pussy faster and faster; it makes a good place to grab it in use. I found the grooves help hold lube in place during play.

The vac-u-lock compatible hole means that I had some additional time playing with American Twist using one of my fucking machines. The dildo is flexible but not floppy, so it works very well on a sex machine.

The vac-u-lock compatable hole in the base of American Twist and the free suction cup adaptor gives you lots of play options.

American Twist is straightforward to clean; place it in the dishwasher or use hot, soapy water. My preference is to use hot water with antibacterial soap. The smooth grooves do not trap vagoo inside, so I did not need to get my super soft toothbrush out.

Once my dildo is completely dry, I place it inside the faux velvet storage bag together with the vac-u-lock compatible suction cup holder. So it would all be ready for the next time we played together.

I like the shape of American Twist; the tip makes it easy to start inserting it, and the girth quickly builds up, providing a nice stretch in use.

Final thoughts

The stylish look of American Twist would make a great addition to any toy box. I loved that I could choose how much stimulation I wanted by either holding the dildo straight or twisting it in play.

The dildo works well on a fucking machine, using the suction cup holder or a strap-on. The torpedo-type shape makes insertion easy for either vaginal or anal play.

One thing I can never say enough when talking about JTT dildos is to check the full measurements before you buy. Don't let your eyes be bigger than your orifices LOL.

I was sent these four American Twist dildos by John Thomas Toys and I would like to thank them for giving me the opportunity to review it for them.
