Pony Up

The Lil' Pony was primary designed to be a positional aid for doggy style. Doggy style seems to be, as of late, our position of choice. My wife will complain her knees hurt or her back hurts if we do it anywhere but the bed, and the Lil' Pony seemed like the opportunity to have sex somewhere other than the bed.

The only other experience I have with bedroom furniture is with Liberator's Ramp and Wedge. The Lil' Pony is vastly different from the Wedge; it's 21" long whereas the Wedge is only 14", it's 10" high whereas the Wedge is 7", and it's only 2.5 lbs whereas the Wedge is 5 lbs. I had difficulties with the Wedge for doggy style, mainly, that it put the point of entry way too low and I had to work my body to be able to reach her pussy. The Wedge was too much work, the Lil' Pony however, made things easy and doggy style something that was rather enjoyable.

I do have a big issue with the Lil' Pony, something that could ultimately be the deciding factor on whether or not you want to purchase this. The triangular corner that your partner straddles and lays their body against is sharp and hard. My wife has a very sensitive abdomen, she doesn't like me touching it, she will even wear loose pants so they don't dig into her waist, and having the Lil' Pony constantly put pressure on her stomach was hard for her. After 5 minutes of use she couldn't take any more discomfort and we had to alter the way we used the pillow.

The foam inside of the Lil' Pony is very stiff and was designed to hold up to rough play and heavy partners but unfortunately, that translates into a pillow that isn't accommodating. The point designed to be straddled is way too sharp, even for people that don't have sensitive abdomens. Not being able to use the Lil' Pony as intended detracted away from it's usefulness. Instead, we opted to position the Lil' Pony under her as we did with the Wedge. In it's defense, it worked a lot better that way as the triangular side under her pelvis was softly rounded as opposed to severely pointed. Instead of her straddling it, we used it to prop her up and put her ass in the air and her breasts flat against the mattress; while this caused less mobility for her, it created the ability for me to have more control.

The cover on this pillow is a very soft water-resistant
polysuede that feels a lot nicer than Liberator's choice of cover; it's easy to unzip and wash, and Love Bumper (the manufacturer) sells extra covers that come in an array of colors. This pillow includes a light gray velcro strap to hold a vibrator in place. It can fit vibrators up to 3" in girth and would accommodate even a Hitachi. Simply place your vibrator under the strap and if you can, straddle the pillow and ride and grind away. This strap makes the pillow not only ideal for partner sex but hands-free sex as well.

A plus is that beyond doggy style, your partner can position this between their legs while they lay on their side and you fuck them from behind. This position won't require for either of you to hold her leg up and allows for use of the strap; my wife certainly enjoyed being able to grind her clit against the pillow as her vibrator buzzed away. You can also slide this under your back while your girl rides you, it works especially great this way if you prefer to put your upper back up against the headboard or wall.

While the foam was stiff and not very comfortable, the Lil' Pony did not bend or smoosh under pressure, it really held its shape. This is something that offers a few more options than the Wedge, but not being able to use it as intended was incredibly disappointing; the sharp corner of the Lil' Pony was ultimately its downfall, and for me, greatly detracts in its appeal.

If the Lil Pony doesn't sound like your perfect positional aid, be sure to check out EdenFantasys' range of Liberator shapes as well as their incredible selection of sex toys.
