Vixskin Ride On Vs Cyberskin Transformer Extension
Posted 22 October 2009 - 10:22 PM
The first is the Cyberskin Transformer Extension which is aptly named since its made out of Cyberskin. There are a number of different sizes available (1.5, 3.0, 2.0 Xtra Thick, 4.0 Xtra Thick) and they come in 2 colours (white and cinnamon). The first thing you notice about the Transformer is the soft texture its the closest feeling to real skin that Ive ever seen. Theres no strange smell and there are no straps. Its fairly easy to get on once you get the hang of it just roll it on like a condom. And the sheath can be trimmed down to the individuals size to get a perfect fit. It made with dual density construction meaning the tip (the extension part) is made of denser material than the sheath. The cyberskin molds around your penis stays in place very well if you have an erection.

There are 2 main draw backs: 1) the Cyberskin material is porous so it is difficult to clean properly. You cannot boil it its best to just use soap and water (or use a condom over it). After use and cleaning the material gets tacky and you should use corn starch to renew the soft texture. 2) the fit is extremely important. Because there are no straps, the only thing holding it up is you so this is not ideal for someone who has difficulty maintaining an erection. Also, the head of the extension can be heavy and there is sometimes a noticeable bend where the extension head meets the penis. This can cause difficulties in some sex positions. It would have been better if the sheath was more rigid to provide some extra support. The best positions are ones where you can maintain a straight in-out motion (ie. Missionary or doggie style). Positions that require the penis to bend or curve can cause discomfort for both partners if the head of your penis bang into her public bone by accident. Additionally, if you have a large penis (girth wise) it may look a bit odd since the head of the extension could be a lot thinner than the rest of your penis in this case, the Xtra Thick versions might be better for you.
The next is the Vixskin Ride On by Vixen Creations. The Vixskin is a new silicone based material that has similar dual density properties of the Cyberskin Transformer. It comes in one size and in 3 colours (white, light brown, and dark brown). The Ride On has a testicle strap that can be used to secure it in place and has a hollow core that allows you to fit your penis into it. The official measurements are: 6 ½ inches long by 1 ¾ inches wide with a hollow insertable shaft of 4 inches long by 1 3/8 inches wide. The solid tip measures 2 ½ inches long. While the Ride On is billed as an extension that does not require an erection, there are many things that have to come into play for this to work.

- note: this is the white version. The dark brown version looks like a rich chocolate colour.
The main draw back is that the fit has to be perfect for this to work properly. If you have a large flaccid penis, youll have a lot of trouble getting it on (even using lube). If you have a large erect penis, it will be probably too uncomfortable getting on because the silicone seems thicker and stronger than the cyberskin and you are unable to roll it on like a condom. If you have a small flaccid penis, you may have troubles keeping it attached properly. There is a testicle strap that you can use but I found that it didnt give the stability that I would need to use it. Additionally, I had a very difficult time trying to fit the strap around my balls. Although the strap stretches, I couldnt fully fit them through the strap. In addition, when I have an erection, my balls tend to pull up tight against my body as opposed to hanging low when theyre relaxed so this also contributed to my difficulties. If you have small testicles, you probably would have problems as well. Bottom line, if your balls dont hang low all the time, youll have trouble using the strap. The ideal candidate to use this would be someone who has a small erect penis (approximately 4 inches long and 1 ½ inches wide) with average to large testicles that hang very low. If you manage to get it on properly, the combination of the strap and the vacuum created around your penis does hold it in place very well.
The Vixskin Ride On definitely looks more like a real penis than the Cyberskin Transformer. It is firmer to the touch and you can see and feel the veins and ridges. When you wear the Ride On, it is approximately the same length as the 3 Cyberskin Extension although it feels as if it has more girth to it (or the girth is firmer). The Cyberskin feels more life-like to touch and is quite a bit softer (both a pro and con for various reasons).
For me, colour is also an important aspect of choosing between the two. The Vixskin has the better colour choices in my opinion (offering 3 shades as opposed to the Cyberskin Transformer). Im not white and my penis has a darker skin tone so the Cyberskin Cinnamon was a pretty good match for me (but it is too light in colour if you were trying to match a really dark skin tone or if you wanted to do some role playing with a BBC). The Vixskin Chocolate was a darker and richer shade of brown and I must admit that when I had it on, I thought that I had a BBC swaying between my legs.
When you go to make your choice, it will probably come down to personal preference and usability. Although I thought the Vixskin looked the best and fulfilled all of my fantasies of giving my wife a BBC, in reality, it was too big for her. The head of the Vixskin is harder than cyberskin and the ridge around the penis head (which is probably the widest part of the extension) gave her too much pain to enjoy. In addition, it was difficult and time consuming to get on something that kills the mood when youre trying to be spontaneous. The best thing about the Vixskin is that its easier to clean than Cyberskin.

I agree Cyber skin Renew is a wonderful product. Tyger recommended it to me and I'm very grateful. Thanks again Tyger!
Here's a helpful tip to keeping your Cyberskin/UR3 toys feeling like they're real, like when you first get them. There's a product called CyberSkin Renew. I have it, and have used in on several of my Cyberskin/UR3 toys, and it does soooo much better than just washing, drying, and putting it away.

Very nice review! It is great to be able to compare the products!

Thanks. I think I forgot to mention that when you buy the Cyberskin Transformer, it includes a small bottle of Cyberskin Renew with it (about 9 grams). The ingredients listed were corn starch and fragrance. So if you run out, you could just run to the grocery store and pick up a box of corn starch (about 454 grams) for about a buck or two.
I've used regular corn starch and it works great... just make sure your toy is completely dry first.

I have the TSX three inches extra and it's great, but my girl wants something with real-feel skin that's not floppy at the end. It's a shame this market hasn't developed much since 2009!
Www.rxsleeve.com sells amazing looking ones but they're so expensive! $1000! Does anyone know where I could get a realistic one which is fairly firm and not HUGE, 6" circumference, just like the TSX?

No, I haven't. But it's a common complaint to have extensions that feel "floppy", but if you find a product you like (and she likes), please let us know!

However, I'm brown and the sleeve is not which is a major disconnect for her. She's stopped getting turned on by it because she just thinks it looks off attached to me.
The vixen colossus in brown is now on order, but it's much much larger than the tommy gunn and MUCH more expensive so I'm quite apprehensive.
