It was a statistical inevitability: squishy silicone grinding toys inspired by gummy candy. Meet Pelle and Spectrum Boutique’s collaboration, Orange Slice and Gummy Worm. Think of them as an upgrade from fucking your palm or humping a pillow.
Pelle’s pliability pushes the pussy in use, but its cushiness is between a marshmallow and (of course) gummy candy. I’ve previously described the shape and size of the Pelle Whim as engulfing, “like a set of juicy, oversized lips.”
They deliver external pressure that feels more organic than most clit toys.
They deliver external pressure that feels more organic than most clit toys. My favorite hot spots to rub the Whim set included:
- Along the clitoral crura (“legs”) on either side in the labia majora
- Near the mouth of the vagina
- Sandwiching it between bodies while dry humping
If the pillowy feeling appeals to you, read on. Pelle’s newer Orange Slice, Gummy Worm, and Flex will give you even more ways to play.
Something old, something new
What’s different about the more recent models? The Pelle Whim and its constituents, Wave and Dune, featured:
- Soft silicone throughout
- Double-sided landscapes
- A grainy matte finish all over
The humpable sides of Pelle’s products are consistently softer than pretty much any silicone dildo I’ve tried...
My Shore A durometer is designed to measure the firmness of rubbers and plastics, and it doesn’t even register that there’s resistance from the Pelle Whim. The humpable sides of Pelle’s products are consistently softer than pretty much any silicone dildo I’ve tried, as I’ve mentioned in my Whim review.
But that doesn’t apply throughout 100% of the Pelle fuckables.
Pelle’s newer Gummy Worm, Orange Slice, and Flex all have flat backs. A 2-millimeter layer of firmer (Shore 5A) silicone spans the bases for stability.
They won’t give you the double-sided, 2-in-1 pizzazz of the Whim, but they offer a distinct advantage: sticking to surfaces easily!
- Cling them to a wand head to buffer broad vibrations
- Pair them with a dildo harness for cushioning
Each design specializes in something slightly different, ― a smorgasbord of sensation for different sets of anatomy.
Pelle Orange Slice for squishy frottage fun
Of the new releases, the Pelle Orange Slice is my favorite. Its outer edge’s elevation offers the best of both worlds: luxuriant like the Whim set and fan-freaking-tastic inside a harness.
Its ten bitty-bumpy segments slide against my clit nicely with lube. If I’m not using lube, a more direct, doorbell-style press and release feels lovely, too. Apply it off-center to a dildo base or just ride it with the convexity against the clitoral glans.
The Pelle Orange Slice also stretches and scrunches nicely against a penis head ― half-wrap it, squeeze, and swivel like you’re juicing.
At 3.5” long and 1.7” wide, it’s about half the size of the Ripple or Dune, but its depth is still full-bodied. The wedge ramps from 0.25” at the lean end up to 0.9” at the plusher perimeter. For comparison, Dune’s topography ranges from 0.5”–1” thick.
The Orange Slice’s flush face lends even better for mounting against a wand head.
Either way, there’s plenty to lower my hips onto, but the Orange Slice’s flush face lends even better for mounting against a wand head.
This petite package does so much, and it’s so cute! I echo Zoë’s “EEEEEEEEEE” sentiment when she announced the Orange Slice and Gummy Worm on Instagram.
Pelle Flex grinding pad and dildo bumper
The Flex is the “lite” analog to the Whim: thinner, more affordable, and a little taste of Pelle’s potential. It’s best for harness play and pairing with wands for texture.
Rub your clit or frenulum up and down along the apex. Alternatively, swiftly sway it side-to-side to feel the contrasts of all the prominences. The swooping peaks vary in height, ranging from 0.7” at the highest mountain to 0.3” at the lowest valley.
This model lacks depth compared to the Whim set, despite its breadth (3.2” long by 2.8” wide) covering my whole vulva.
Consider how that contrasts with the Pelle Wave. It also has a defined crest for focused (yet yielding) clitoral stimulation and substantial bumps and padding all around for my clitoral crura to savor.
The Pelle Flex is best for a base buffer or use with a wand.
The plus side to the Pelle Flex’s daintiness is how easily vibrations transfer through it. As such, I think the Pelle Flex is best for a base buffer or use with a wand. However, my vulva prefers the Wave, Dune, and Orange Slice as standalone external toys.
Pelle Gummy Worm phallic humping toy
Pelle’s Gummy Worm straddles the line between frotting and conventional strokes. Whether you use it as a vaginal dildo, mini-sleeve for a penis, or vulva grinder is up to you!
This semi-phallic specimen is mildly S-curved by default. Its firmer base gives it some structure, but it’s still super easy to straighten out or roll up.
It may be a comfortable candidate if you’re new to penetration.
Such a gentle insertable smooshes against the cervix well; it may be a comfortable candidate if you’re new to penetration. However, I wouldn’t recommend the Gummy Worm for anal since there’s no flared base to serve as a stopper, lest it gets lost inside.
Pelle’s Gummy Worm measures about 9.5” long by 1.1” wide by 1” deep ―or 4.2” by 1.1” by 1” if you fold it in half. The signature marshmallow-like density is soooooo, so slight that, with the slightest squeeze, the halved Gummy Worm compacts into merely a slightly above-average penis diameter.
“Shape-shifting” rests on the Pelle Gummy Worm’s list of identifiers. Its supple constitution makes it a blast to experiment with.
Closing thoughts on the Pelle Orange Slice, Flex, and Gummy Worm
I just want to trib all the squishies in sight! Every item in the Pelle line has something whimsically special about it:
- Whim offers oodles of options, with many variations amid its summits and hollows
- Flex is flat for sticking to wands and dildo bases — simple, supple, nothing dramatic
- Gummy Worm pretzels for penetration and external pressure on penises and pussies
Orange Slice is a little of almost everything! Bounce on it, slide it, flex it.
Penises don’t have a monopoly on wanting something fleshy to frot. It’s dreamy to be in a timeline with plentiful possibilities for grinding gratification.
