I keep calling this thing the Allegra but that’s my allergy medicine. This is the Allegro. But it looks feminine and my Latin and Spanish lessons from way back when create this weird thing in my head that makes me want to give it the ‘a’ ending because that’s a feminine ending and…
Sorry. Back on track.
The Allegro is a double sided glass dildo. The Allegro is pink and textured. In fact, the Allegro is quite a bit more pink than the pictures make it appear to be and the texture is much more intense than you expect, too. It looks like a pale pink, lightly ribbed toy. It is a bright pink shaft of glass covered in mighty ripples from top to bottom.
What I’m sayin’ is…
This is not a lightly textured dildo so if you’re not a fan of texture, move along. If you are a fan, this is probably a toy that will appeal to you in almost every way.
The Allegro is 7 inches long with a diameter of nearly 1.5 inches at it’s widest point. It has a torpedo shaped end and a rounded end which each curve into a center bulge. Either end is fairly easy to insert since glass is slick, slick, slick even with no lube. I personally prefer the rounded end. I like that pop of a ball shaped tip on a dildo entering me. I also like it better if it hits my cervix than a pointed tip. The pointed, torpedo shaped tip goes in a bit more smoothly but also feels pointy if it bumps my cervix. So. Both are nice but you can choose one or the other and still enjoy the toy if the opposite isn’t your thing. A nice bonus, that.
The texture on this toy is ridged. Repeatedly and shallowly ridged from tip to tip. It doesn’t seem like it would be very intense but, to me, it is. It’s a constant… hmm… damn it. I can’t explain it. Roughness? Friction? along my vaginal walls. I like it, but it can be a bit much at times. I definitely need to be ready for it and in the mood for it or it feels overstimulating and I react badly.
The curves and bulges of the Allegro can be felt but are minimal in comparison to the texture.
Oddly, as much as I like pink toys, this one is a bit bright. I guess I prefer a paler, softer pink glass. It’s still very pretty though. I don’t dislike it, I’m just always shocked when I pull it out that’s it’s glass and SO pink.
I feel like this review is coming across as apathetic. I guess it sort of is. I like the Allegro but I don’t love it. It’s a good dildo at a good price but it’s not – and never will be – my favorite.
It does come with a super nice, dark purple velvety drawstring bag (unpadded) and you can use any lube you like with it, both pluses. Clean up in the sink with soap and water (using care to get in those grooves!) or boil, bleach, pop it in the dishwasher. Glass is easy. :)
And that, I guess, is that.
The Allegro is a fine toy but after so many, I’m a little jaded about sex toys. Which makes me feel very bad for the Allegro. It probably deserves better.
