The Soju Sugar Drop is a sexy piece of silicone, and I don’t say that to all my toys. It’s got a modern shape that reminds me of a ray gun, and even comes with a clear acrylic stand, should you feel like leaving your toy out on display. The Sugar Drop has 5 fabulous colour choices (including LIME GREEN!), and is 100% Silicone. Cleaning is the usual hassle free option wiping it down with soap and water or a toy cleaner. Sterilizing can be achieved by boiling it, wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution. Remember to only use water based lubes, or your Sugar Drop can melt! (Well, maybe not melt exactly, but silicone toys can have adverse reactions to silicone lubes, so I wouldn’t risk it.)
The Sugar Drop has a gently rounded point on one end, widening gently to a thick point in the middle, then tapering off to a flat handle at the other end. It’s 8 1/2″ long from end to end, with a 6 1/2″ inch insertable length. At the widest point in the middle of the insertable portion, it has a diameter of 1 5/8″, so you may want to give it a pass if you prefer your toys to be on the slender side. I Unlike the Lelo Ella, the flattened end is not for insertion. I’ve read that some reviewers have been able to insert both ends and got good g-spot stimulation with the flat end, but it’s not something that worked well with my internal anatomy. The angles were wrong and I found the edges of the handle part of the to be irritating, as they felt almost sharp upon insertion! There’s also a seam down the middle of the toy, which can’t be felt in use, but is definitely visible.
When it comes to use, the Sugar Drop isn’t quite what I was hoping for. It does rub against my G-spot when I thrust with it, but it’s more of a tease than the firm pressure I need to squirt. The bubble texture on the side of the shaft is also not what I had expected! In the pictures on Edens Fantasies, they seem like a cute accent, but in use, they are irritating to the point that I need to use tons of lube with it (and I never use lube for vaginal toy use, given how naturally wet I am). They rub against my labia and my inner walls, and it goes from ‘Ooh, yay, a bit of texture.’ to ‘Oh gods, oh gods, it feels like sandpaper.’ very quickly. The handle does works well with a partner, although it’s not long enough to make sure that they won’t get come all over their hands, so gloves might be a good idea if the person you’re using the Sugar Drop on isn’t fluid bonded with you.
I had hoped to like the Sugar Drop a lot more than I did, however, the wonky texture and lack of G-spot stimulation just doesn’t do it for me. It’s been sitting mostly unloved in my toy box the last few months, and while I occasionally take it out and try again, I’m considering passing it on to one of my pay partners. Sorry, Sugar! You’re just not the one for me.
