I have been using my original one for 3 months. I decided to try the Vortex. I have just used it once, because I do not want to put my dick out of comission for the weekend. I enjoyed my session with it but it made my dick was sore afterward. I could not even pull it through the fly on my boxers to piss.
I had read that the smooth ones take more lube, however, the vortex needed a lot more lube than the original one. Maybe, I used too little lube or the wrong lube. With the origina,l, I just lube up my dick once and stick it in. With the Vortex I had to keep shooting more lube in end. I used Astroglide which may not be the best for the Vortex. What do you guys think?
The good news is my dick recovered enough for a blowjob by the afternoon yesterday. It is ok today.
