Toy Review: The La Bocca Della Verita Onahole

Did you know that the major muscle that runs from the front of the lower jaw in to the tongue (and is responsible for your ability to stick your tongue out, among other things) is called the genioglossus?

I sure as hell didn’t until I found out that the La Bocca Della Verita Onahole has endeavored to perfectly replicate it as part of the incredibly realistic design of their masturbation sleeve.

That’s what you get when you make a sleeve called ‘Mouth of Truth’, it seems, and the La Bocca Della Verita really does try to live up to its name.

Which means, yes, this masturbation sleeve does have teeth…and a tongue…and even a uvula.

Oh yeah,we’re getting in to that territory.

The La Bocca Della Verita Onahole

The La Bocca Della Verita Onahole was provided to me by Motsu Toys in exchange for an honest review and does well to represent the incredible attention-to-detail that some Japanese adult products bring to the table.

We both really liked the box for this product.

Rather than just having a familiar exterior section, and then stopping there, the La Bocca Della Verita attempts to provide a comprehensive, highly-detailed masturbation experience unlike anything that most ‘standard’ sleeves offer.

Its soft, supple lips may not be much of a surprise to many, but its firm plastic teeth might just be, and that’s just the beginning of the detailing offered by this masturbator. The La Bocca Della Verita is here to tease and tantalize but it also delivers exactly what it promises it will–realism in both form and function.

As with most toys like this, the La Bocca Della Verita is made from a ‘life-like’ material which is invariably porous, requires a fair amount of cleaning, and is a bit of  dust magnet (as an understatement).

The material used for this toy is squishy.

But, despite its many flaws, this material does have its benefits. For a toy that is going to be accommodating penes of various shapes and sizes, the La Bocca Della Verita is highly flexible and willing to work with its user’s body. It material responds wonderfully to lubricant (with the product coming with its own free sachet) while also allowing its texture to come through with reasonable clarity.

This material also feels plush and squishy to the touch, allowing users to add or remover squeezing pressure as they see fit. All clear bonuses when it comes to a masturbation sleeve.

In comparison to this material the La Bocca Della Verita’s teeth are made of plastic and are quite firm, providing a very clear contrast of sensations.

If not careful then these teeth may also ‘bite down’ in to the penis they’re wrapped around creating a pinching sensation and leaving a clear mark. This isn’t necessarily ideal, unless pain was what you were going from. Personally I did not like hearing Mr Peaches scream in pain knowing that I hadn’t intended it.

More sex toys need mange on the side.

As for the rest of the texture…well, it certainly does make itself known, at least in most regards.

Mr Peaches openly admitted to me that he couldn’t really feel any significant or free-standing motions from the tongue included, but he did still like how it felt and was still able to orgasm from it. But to Mr Peaches these orgasms were begrudgingly had.

Have you heard to the saying ‘Once bitten, twice shy’? Well, it’s fair to say that this toy’s consistent ability to bite and scrape against Mr Peaches’ shaft left his positive opinion of this toy (and his orgasm strength) lacking.

These teeth consistently hurt Mr Peaches.

By his own words, Mr Peaches did feel like this toy had potential for anyone who craved something that looked very realistic, ambitious anime fans, and/or lovers of a little bit of pain & pleasure combined, but none of these areas really hit the right spot for him personally.

‘Uncanny valley’ was a real factor for him too.

As a woman I started my sex toy endeavors a bit wary about ‘realistic’ looking dildos, and it took me a long time to get over my apprehensions, but we never really give men much in the way of options here.

The tongue also proved to be inefficient.

Typically most strokers try to replicate the mouth, anus, or vulva/vagina in some manner, though usually it’s the external area that is given this realism. For some men this is unnerving enough, but to suddenly open up your stroker and be greeted with a pair of gnashers? I can completely understand why this would leave some individuals (especially some men) feeling as if their masturbation choices are at least a tad problematic.

Should this be the case? Probably not.

Yes, objectification exists. The cute comic on the side of this box implied a certain degree of desire for the ‘kawaii’ and there is the problem of literally just fucking a disembodied female body part, but how is this fundamentally different from using a realistic dildo? Should we give leeway and perhaps even sympathy to some men who look at this toy with fear? What about fascination?

I personally believe that many different opinions are required to get a comprehensive idea of any viewpoint/argument/sex toy and the La Bocca Della Verita is yet another product to consider.

Was this toy uncanny valley for me? Not at all. I marveled at the detail in sheer admiration of the detailing. What Mr Peaches saw as ‘creepy’ I saw as ‘craftsmanship’ and I even gave this toy a loving kiss at one point.

As our lips met the La Bocca Della Verita was soft and squishy. Its powdery exterior met my often-dry lips and I giggled in the aftermath. To put it simply I found this toy to be a clever idea with some charming execution.

But charm alone can not make a toy good, nor force it to meet someone’s needs. At the end of the day Mr Peaches simply couldn’t get along with what the La Bocca Della Verita was offering, nor its amazing attention to detail.

Also by his estimations it had a strong, unpleasant odor. I couldn’t necessarily detect this but I know that materials such as the one used for this toy can retain a smell.

Final Thoughts

Despite the adorable manga illustrations on the side of this product’s box, Mr Peaches has been eager to dispose of this product, certain that it is completely incompatible with his body.

If you are a sizeable individual the La Bocca Della Verita may be equally painful and unappealing to you and I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it.

However, if you have dabbled with draggy, firm, or otherwise textured sleeves before and feel confident in the embrace of the mouth of truth then perhaps the La Bocca Della Verita will be able to provide you with the rush of enjoyment that you seek.

Just remember–even with lube this sleeve might feel grating at times. Technique and self-control will be everything when using this toy.

Recommend to:

People who like teeth in their sleeves.

People who like firm sleeves.

People who love realism.

Do Not Recommend to: 

People who dislike realism.

People who need body-safe/non-porous toys.

People who dislike firm sensations on their shaft.
