Betty Butch Reviews The Avant Pride P3 Beauty Dildo

Review: Avant Pride P3 Beauty Silicone Dildo by Blush Novelties

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and again: Blush Novelties must be utilizing some kind of silicone magic to produce dildos with such clean stripes. The Avant Pride P3 – aka the Beauty – sports the colors of the lesbian pride flag, each block of color as vibrant and self-contained as the last. It’s beautiful.

I came out as a lesbian in 2005, when I was just fifteen. There wasn’t a widely recognized lesbian-specific pride flag at the time, and by the time the largely pink-striped flag emerged a few years ago (originally pitched for lipstick lesbians specifically, but re-purposed and popularized by the broader lesbian community on Tumblr) I had already begun identifying as queer in safe/online spaces. “Queer” better suits the nuances of my sexuality and my gender identity, but lesbian is still the word I use with relatives and allocishet friends.

Avant Pride P3 Beauty Silicone Dildo With Suction Cup Base

It delights me to see a dildo in lesbian pride flag colors in Blush Novelties’ Avant Pride line, especially one that’s beginner-friendly and harness compatible. When I visited Patricia’s in Kansas as a young queer person, I was put off by how aggressively heteronormative the space and its stock was. Even toys traditionally associated with queer sex were marketed exclusively to straight couples. The Avant Pride P3 – while functionally useful for just about anyone who enjoys penetration – is undeniably lesbian, and it would have meant the world to me to see it on the shelves when I was young.

So when it came time to pick a review toy from SheVibe, I was adamant about reviewing the Avant Pride P3 Beauty Silicone Dildo, and SheVibe was kind enough to accommodate me. (Thanks, SheVibe, for getting it into my greedy gay paws!)

Because the P3 is made from silicone, it’s body-safe and can be washed with a mild soap and water (or sterilized via boiling it or cleaning it in a 10% bleach solution.) Its suction cup makes it anal-safe (as you need a flared base for anal toys to keep your body from pulling it in) and strap-on harness compatible.

The P3 is an endearingly small dildo, just 5.5 inches long and 1.25 inches in width. I called it beginner-friendly two paragraphs ago, but it’s also just plain me-friendly. Penetration is pretty much always painful for me and larger insertables are an impossibility – soft, small, and somewhat pliable dildos like the P3 provide a more comfortable fuck for my body.

And that’s precisely what the P3 is: comfortable. Mostly. Unlike the Temptasia Reina (another Blush offering in the gentler size category), the P3 Beauty’s head is smaller than its shaft, and that makes initial penetration much easier. It does get slightly thicker towards the base, but the transition is gradual and the tapering is subtle enough to go virtually unnoticed in use.
