John Thomas STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN Platinum Silicone Stretcher Review

Written by  Dec 22, 2022

Taking things one step at a time

John Thomas Toys asked if I would like to review their latest products. I was surprised, however, when I was told it would be four dildos this time (lucky me).

With that in mind, I ensured I had plenty of lube ready and waiting. I also let sub 'r' know she would be trying out some of the new designs. After all, I do like to share the fun ;-)

"The tip inserts easily, but I needed much more lube to accept the next couple of steps. The flat top gave me a challenge to push in. But with some wriggling, pressure and lots of lube, I managed. It delivers a really lovely sensation as you open to accept it."

As usual, I didn't have long to wait before the dildos arrived on my doorstep.

I greeted the postie with a big grin as soon as I saw the large boxes. I only knew what it contained due to their size.

Delivery & Packaging

John Thomas Toys shipped my items quickly and in a robust plain box. Due to their combined weight, it needs to be a strong box when transporting all four sizes available. The delivery man has yet to have any idea of what is inside the box he delivered :-)

Inside the box, the dildos were packaged with paper, which is better than the alternative options. To reduce landfill, John Thomas Toys use only a strong, clear heat-sealed wrap to protect each dildo.

Each dildo also has a few stickers on the wrap. One to let you know the firmness rating, another to remind you to wash the dildo before use. Lastly, there is a JTT logo sticker. I like this minimalistic packaging choice.

Materials and design

Stairway to Heaven's design has a story behind it. Check out the JTT website if you want to read the details.

I can understand why they have called this stretcher Stairway to Heaven as it does look like a rounded set of stairs, and if you are looking for the stretch, this could feel like Heaven.

With a narrow rounded tip, it then expands to the first step. While each step has a flat top, growing in size as you go down to the base, every step gives you slightly more stretch than the last in both circumference and length. The added dimensions vary on the size of the dildo you order.

One thing I cannot say often enough is, please check the measurements on the JTT website to avoid disappointment; these are big stretchers.

Stairway to Heaven is designed for anal stretching, but you can also use it vaginally.

Count the steps to record how far you can take it to know when it is time to upgrade the size. With four sizes available, you have a good range of choices.

JTT use high-quality platinum cure medical grade silicone to make their dildos. This is a safe insertable material not only because it is latex, rubber and phthalate free. But also, it is body-safe and non-porous, making the material hypo-allergenic.

JTT pride themselves on the quality of their products, from the silicone, used and the method used to make the final product. To ensure that every dildo comes out of the mould with the same features as the previous one, JTT uses copper moulds. This is a more expensive process but well worth the additional cost.

I just love the Fusion colour scheme on the Stairway To Heaven.

While there are a few options of colours, the ones with mixed colours are made by a method of hand-pouring called fusion. Providing a unique colour finish to every stretcher made this way.

The base features the JTT logo on one side and the name on the other, adding to the finished quality look. There is a vac-u-lock compatible hole in the base.

With each stretcher, you will also receive a free vac-u-lock compatible suction cup. These work really well on clean, flat and smooth surfaces. Also, a black faux velvet storage bag with the JTT name and logo printed on one side in white.

Performance

Usually, I umm and arr about which size I want to play with first when reviewing a set of dildos from JTT. This time I went straight for the small. (Ok, so you can call me a chicken), but I know my limits LOL.

When you factor in the width of this stretcher, the closer to the base you get, the small was my best option. Besides, I knew I could always try a larger size if I wanted to. As it turned out, the small was plenty big enough for me to enjoy ;-)

The tip inserts easily, but I needed much more lube to accept the next couple of steps. The flat top gave me a challenge to push in. But with some wriggling, pressure and lots of lube, I managed. It delivers a really lovely sensation as you open to accept it.

It would be best if you had plenty of water-based lube on hand for this stretcher. I used lots of J lube with mine.

Each step is not only broader in girth but also slightly longer. Allowing you to enjoy the stretch before you take on the next step.

I found it easy to record my progress as each new step could be easily felt. I just had to concentrate on the number.

I was glad I received the soft firmness rating, as it allowed me to take a little more than the firmer option. You will have the choice yourself, so if you do not want a slightly squishier version, go for the medium softness rating.

Final Thoughts

It offers a stretch for most people. Simply choose the right size for your needs.

Even the small size gave me a challenge. Check the measurements at JTT before you order.

No, I did not manage to get even half of the length inside vaginally. I am not really up to the challenge of stretching too much, but if you are looking for an anal stretcher, I recommend checking this one out.

John Thomas Toy stretchers are perfect for what their name implies, stretch training and this can feel incredible. I just love their designs and look forward to telling you about the other three I am currently reviewing for them.

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