Vaginismus is a condition in which most or all types of vaginal penetration are painful or impossible due to involuntary muscle spasms and tension. Dilator sets are used in the treatment of the condition, by slowly inserting the smallest dilator and progressing gradually through the sizes until the largest dilator can be inserted comfortably. While one of the goals of dilator sets is to allow the user to experience pleasure through penetration, few sets are sexy or pleasurable at all and many are intimidating. When CalExotics introduced the Inspire Dilator Set, we at Sexploratorium were excited to get our hands on this product! Below you will find the details about this set from a sex toy and product reviewer named Emmeline Peaches. For the full review, scroll to the link at the bottom.
This set comes with five silky smooth, silicone dilators. They come in a spectrum of pretty pale pinks, making them look less clinical and much more appealing than other dilator sets. The tapered shape and slight curve allows users to experiment with positions and pressure, while the looped handle provides control and ease of use.
The specifications of the set are as follows:
Dilator #1: 3 inch insertable length, 1.5 inch circumference
Dilator #2: 3.75 inch insertable length, 2.5 inch circumference
Dilator #3: 4.75 inch insertable length, 2.9 inch circumference
Dilator #4: 5.5 inch insertable length, 3.5 inch circumference
Dilator #5: 6.5 inch insertable length, 4.25 inch circumference
This dilator set really goes above and beyond as compared to other sets available on the market. The smooth silicone and the curve of these dilators matches that of many luxury silicone toys, unlike typical dilator sets that are straight and made of hard plastic. One of the many beneficial properties of silicone–and why it is used in the production of so many luxury dildos and vibrators–is that it warms up to body temperature, making it feel more natural for the user. It is also non-porous, phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, body-safe, and super easy to clean. Warm water and antibacterial soap is a simple way to clean them or 3-5 minutes in boiling water will sanitize them.
The only downside with this set is that, in order to reach the full girth of each dilator, it must be inserted to the full length as well. Conquering girth and length may be an added challenge that some users are not prepared for. On the other hand, it may make inserting other toys or a penis more achievable after reaching the full girth and length of the largest dilator. These are minor details to keep in mind for anyone interested in this particular set.
The Inspire Dilator set is recommended as a first dilator set for people with vaginismus because it focuses on not only recovery, but pleasure as well. This is also recommended for people interested in a curved dilator for increased comfort and/or G-spot pressure.
Below is the full review from Emmeline Peaches who suffered from vaginismus and recommends this set of vaginal dilators. After recovering from vaginismus, Emmeline happily stated that she is able to continue using the dilators–like sex toys–the material, shape, and ability to provide G-spot pressure allow them to provide pleasurable and even orgasmic experiences.
