Neotori’s Theotolax was released March of this year and the sleek, ocean-based model immediately appealed to my aesthetics—I have a thing for merfolk-based models (like my Carnal Compendium Cedre or Pleasure Forge Merfolk). The character representing this model on the site is an anthro shark, so that fit right in.
Despite my preference for the theme, I still had questions; I’ve never been into subtle texture. Would the texture be prominent enough for me to notice? Would I enjoy the shape despite the minimal texture? Would the knot impress or disappoint?
Turns out I like it, but it’s not the knot that shines on this one.
Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a coupon code.
Medium Theotolax is nearly 8″ long, with 6.7″ of that usable, 3.5″ of that before the knot. The girth is about 2″ diameter for the top swell and 2.3″ diameter at the knot. A gentle, undulating ridge runs along either side of the toy, including the knot. The head is small, rounded tip.
In standard firmness A00, the toy feels squishy, but not to the point of being marshmallow-like. Others have said this firmness is comparable to 00-40 and I agree: It feels a little softer than most of my 00-50 toys. This would make Neotori’s A00 between most shops’ soft and medium firmnesses. The surface is matte and soft like skin, smooth and velvety without any notable texture. (It’s closer to Bad Dragon’s matte finish than TTC’s notorious “sandpaper” texture).
The pour on my Theotolax contains three colors: Warm chocolate brown, light pinkish brown, and cream with subtle gold shimmer. In the center of the base of the toy is a heart, which was a fantastic surprise; it’s an absolute delight whenever a creator makes some kind of latte art on the base of a coffee pour.
I received this toy in exchange for a review and did not go through the standard ordering process. The toy colors are not part of the standard lineup, but Neotori’s customer support (found on their FAQ) is available to discuss non-standard colors and color matching. I requested a coffee-themed pour and the colors were determined by the makers.
The package arrived 15 days after it was shipped from Germany. Tracking did not update until the package was in possession of DHL in the US, and the package was handed off to USPS for delivery.
In addition to Theotolax, I received a medium-size A00 Noax in the same pour, three Nekoras Chonkys, two Fenya Chonkys, and a pack of five MiniToris. All silicone items were in heat-sealed bags. They came with a business card with social media tags on the back and two thank you cards with care instructions on the back (one featuring the character Qwim and the other featuring the character Finn).
At time of writing, a custom three-color* medium Theotolax (including one shimmery color) costs 54.95€ through Neotori’s site, which converts to $64.64. On Neotori’s Etsy, the same item would cost 74.95€ or $92.39. I generally recommend purchasing through a site’s own storefront since Etsy takes an additional fee, and in this case, it’s much cheaper.

In Use (Vaginal)
Theotolax is easy to insert with the tiny head. This has never been a concern of mine, given that I can fit a blunt head with enough lube and a little maneuvering, but it’s definitely convenient, especially when not fully warmed up. Past that, I can’t feel the head internally.
The swell is beautifully shaped. As mentioned, I’m very much a texture guy rather than a shape guy, but I’m pleased with the shape on this one. No matter which way it’s oriented, the swell presses against my front wall, providing gentle and constant pressure on my G-spot. The top half of the shaft makes for a really smooth ride and I naturally stop above the knot with each stroke.
The knot feels good, providing some additional stretch, but it’s not convenient to take all the way and does not stay in place. There’s hardly any space after the knot and the stem is not much thinner. Personally, I would have preferred a slightly longer and thinner stem, but I think the design will work for some people who want gentler knots that won’t stay in place. (I knew before asking about this toy that it wouldn’t be good for knotting, so I’m not disappointed at all.)
The base is easy to grasp and not bulky, and some could grind against it, though like most toys, I can’t make that work for me. It’s easy to thrust and I have a strong preference for thrusting this one rather than riding it.
When angled sideways, the ripple along the shaft provides some texture against my front wall, but otherwise, I have a hard time noticing any of the texture and can’t say much about it. I do not find it easy to achieve A-spot stimulation with this toy and I do not find it interesting for frotting/grinding purposes.
I typically use this toy in conjunction with others since the lack of texture unfortunately means I lose interest over time; it takes more friction or A-spot stimulation to really get me going. The smooth texture makes it relatively easy to sort out double vaginal penetration using a second toy, though.
This toy works well with both water- and oil-based lubes.
In Use (Anal)
The small tip makes this one of the easiest toys for me to insert. The swell stretches me out a little more than I’m used to, but the bottom of the swell is a comfortable stopping point. I end up with a really nice full feeling that I don’t tend to get vaginally. The lack of texture doesn’t hinder it here; while some texture would be nice, the feeling of the swell is worth it on its own.
I am unable to take the knot anally.
Theotolax is a smooth and sleek toy, taking the standard canine form and turning it into something clearly fantastical and not-canine. The swell presses against my front wall nicely in vaginal use and provides a comfortable fullness in anal use. The knot does not tie well and the minimal texture is a drawback for me, but this may appeal to those who prefer less texture or would like a gentle knotted toy. The product quality is great and the design’s swell surprised me with how well it works for me.
While Theotolax isn’t a perfect fit for me, there’s plenty of models in Neotori’s lineup that look like they would suit my tastes, especially now that I’ve had the chance to personally handle a couple of their toys. In the meantime, Noax is proving itself a good fit for my texture-loving body.
I’ve only heard good things about Neotori, and I’m happy to say their reputation is well earned, both in quality and presentation. They’ve been great to work with and have a friendly social media presence, and they’re donating revenue from Chonky sales to help with flood relief through the end of August.
I was provided a coupon code for my readers, Frostychonky, which will add a free Nekoras Chonky to any order made through Neotori’s website.
