Vixen Creations neon and tie dye dildos

These beauties from Vixen Creations are going away. All neon Mavericks, including the tie dye one, are being discontinued, as is the neon green Mustang. I guess we can’t have nice things. That appears to be the only explanation. (I’m sure Vixen would tell you that these weren’t selling well enough, but I won’t listen to reason.)

Prior to these hitting the scene, most of Vixen’s dual-density VixSkin dildos were made only in skin tones. Raquel was, for a long time, the only exception — and it was pink. So these neon and tie dye additions were an exciting and welcome change. I know people who are adverse to skin tones, and I was thrilled to be able to recommend glorious VixSkin in colors they found appealing.

My beautiful tie dye Maverick.If you’re one of those people, you’d better snatch one of these up before the colors are gone for good. Maverick and Mustang are two of Vixen’s top-selling shapes (and two of my faves), but remember — their specs are quite different. While the Mustang is a modest (yet, even for me, fulfilling) 6.5″ insertable by 1.5″ wide, Maverick is a beastly 7″ insertable by 2″ wide. Choose wisely, peeps.

As a consolation prize, you’ll at least be able to say you own a dildo that is no longer in production. Can’t tell me that’s not cool.

You can get 10% off at Smitten Kitten and Early to Bed with code EPIPHORA.

Green Mustang: Nowhere now.
Tie Dye Maverick: Nowhere now.
Green Maverick: Nowhere now.
Pink Maverick: Nowhere now.

Not being discontinued:

Tie Dye Mustang: SheVibe, She Bop, Smitten Kitten.
Pink Mustang: SheVibeEarly to Bed, She Bop, Smitten Kitten.

    This makes me so sad! The neons are what originally attracted me to Vixen Creations and the awesomeness that is Vixskin. It’s a tragedy that almost all of them are going away :(

  • Jillian Boyd

    Oh ffs. Goodbye, pretty neon Vixens. You were all too pretty to be on this world.

  • tacocurious

    Damn… I was hoping to get one of these. I am really not fond of dildos in skin tones. Maybe there will still be some when I can afford one!

  • Heaven

    I am so sad to hear that I was looking to get the tie dye Maverick one. They always have to let the good ones discontinue. Now to be on a search and save some money to get one. Thanks for sharing!

  • Run Amok

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. It was the tie-dye option that made me love Vixen! Should I snap up a Maverick while they last, just in case/as an act of protest, even though I would probably get more use out of a Mustang? Argh neither SheVibe nor Smitten Kitten will tell me how much international shipping is likely to cost before I actually place an order, so that’s not going to happen.

  • gardenlobster

    I think I may just pick up one of each style just because you told me I can say I have a dildo no longer in production. That’s a hell of a selling point.

    Nooooo!! I can’t even “Boo” it, since it’s so devastating. I have/love my tie-bright Maverick, but I have yet to obtain a Neon Mustang. I love non-humanoid color options. I love being able to refer people to the colors they have. I guess this is the universe telling me it’s time to save up for the Mustang, before the colors are just a distant memory. Okay, I can do it now. BOOOOO.

  • Asia Riley

    Say it ain’t so! Skin tone dildos kind of freak me out. I had these odd colored, highly recommended dildos on holiday wish list this year.

    I’m sad about this :-(

  • Brandy Varner Walker

    Oh no! I might need to look into getting one. I just finally bought my first even VixSkin Buck. I seriously need more but in other colors so its easier to know which one I’m grabbing.

  • Fodra Sun

    I have the green mustang on every wishlist I have. Why must all the pretty green toys die? Particularly when I don’t have the cash for it?

  • Lin

    I tried it and had a look at the carts without actually ordering. (For reference, I’m in Australia.) I WANT A TIE-DYE MAVERICK SO MUCH.

    But:

    Smitten Kitten wants you to call them (?) before you place an international order (?) (I’m deaf, that’s not an option for me, and I don’t really get why I would have to contact them to begin with?)

    SheVibe’s International Checkout costs, at minimum, around $50 USD for shipping alone, and you can’t use any promo codes or discounts for the items in question anyway. So you’re spending half again as much for shipping on a single (tie-dye) Maverick, and in fact that’s the minimum cost of shipping internationally at all, I think — so if you buy something that’s less than $50 and you’re in Australia like me, you’re going to be paying $50 shipping regardless.

    I’ve ranted about shipping costs in the past, so I’ll try not to take up too much space with it, but for future reference you generally can put something in a cart and take it through to calculating shipping costs without actually placing an order (or entering any billing info).

    Total bummer. Time so stock up!

  • http://www.bedroombondage.co.za/ Noëlle Steegs

    I really want to get a pink Maverick, but live in South Africa. SheVibe charges $55.00 for normal shipping and SheBob doesn’t seem to ship to South Africa at all. Boo. I want to get my hands on this so badly!

  • Nora

    NOOOOOOOOO! Why oh why must the most awesome dildos ever be discontinued? I love love love my green Mustang and was actually hoping they’d make a neon (orange, maybe?) Buck soon. That suddenly seems unlikely. Now I’m wondering whether I should get a tie-dye Maverick, just because I still can. I am guessing my cervix won’t like it but… it is so pretty.
    I’m going to cuddle my Mustang and weep now.

  • xtina

    Maaaannnn, this sucks! Skin tones squick me so much on dildos, I guess I’ll have to jump on my wish-listed neon green maverick asap. This is the second time you’ve warned me of good things going away, and even though I’m strapped for real money just like last time, I’ve never regretted it – so thank you for continuing to warn us. ^_^

  • Oddkin

    Oh boo! I still wanted a tie-dye Mustang. Looks like I will have to make it snappy (ie next 6 months) if I still want one.

  • http://heyepiphora.com/ Epiphora

    The tie-dye Mustang is staying… for now.

  • http://heyepiphora.com/ Epiphora

    I talked to Smitten Kitten and they are able to receive TTY calls, if you are equipped to make them (if not, I’d email them and tell them so). I’ve also talked to SheVibe in the past about shipping cost, and unfortunately their hands are tied with the current options out there.

    I’ve tried to find international shops that stock these toys, but so far to no avail. I’m sorry about all of this.

    I just ran into my first discontinued toy. It was sad to me – this glorious g-spot toy I’d found early on, never to be unwrapped by another pair of eager hands.

  • http://www.mystrapon.net/ Pamela Pegwell

    I’m not surprised. Judging by reviews and personal experience with my local munch, many people buy Vixen dildos for the realism. Not just for the awesome VikSkin material, but for the realistic look and details as well. I can’t imagine the bright neon dildos going over well with that crowd.

    My only complaint with Vixen is that they offer only one non-anatomically correct dildo with VikSkin material (Raquel). But I guess they don’t offer variety in that department for the same reason they no longer offer neon colors: Customers want realism and catering to that niche brings in the money. Ah well. At least they do realism very well.

  • razor_poet

    I get the news that one of my most lusted after toys is being discontinued, a week before my birthday. I swear, it must be fate.

  • DynamicKitty

    What a shame that these are being discontinued! :-(

    Hello! You can place your items in your cart and determine shipping cost before the order is placed – if you would like to email us – customersupport@shevibe.com – we can give you the step by step, it’s actually simple but going to the International Checkout portal sometimes throws people off. We’re here to help if you have questions!

  • http://www.shevibe.com/ Sandra

    You’re absolutely right – you can determine your shipping cost before placing your order. We would never ask that you place an order without knowing the cost involved. Thanks for your input and advice to our international friends!

  • Squire

    That’s sad as the great colors were some of the most recent additions to their lineup. Any idea when Vixen might be adding new models of not colors?

  • Pantophile Panic

    Now there are no green Mustangs anymore… I am glad I got one just in time… but my heart is still broken. I wanted six of them. How can I convince my friends who don’t like flesh tones to buy these now?
