Review: Fascinator Shag Throe

As soon as I squirted for the first time and had to sleep in a towel-covered wet puddle on the bed, I knew I needed a Fascinator Throe. The Throe is a moisture resistant sex blanket, with one soft side, one satin side, and a thin moisture barrier in between. There are numerous Throe color and material options, but I bought a red fluffy Throe simply because it was the only one available at the sex shop where I was working at the time, and I needed one ASAP.

Before I purchased my Throe, I read various reviews that raved how perfectly it works, how it keeps any liquids from seeping through, but that hasn’t quite been the case for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Throe, and it does protect our bed very well, keeping lube, semen, and most of my ejaculate off of our bed, but a little bit of moisture has seeped through it a few times after a particularly squirty session.

Another issue I have with the Throe is its size.  It’s great for my solo sessions, but it doesn’t quite cover our queen size bed, so it slides around and gets crumpled during sex. I think the Throe would be better if it was big enough to cover the whole bed as well as have about a foot draping over all sides, or if there was a separate fitted style Throe option for partner sex. The Throe also takes awhile to dry after use, so be prepared to lay it out somewhere and have another one or some towels ready if you’re planning on a squirting marathon.

Still, the Throe works wonders and is way sexier and more convenient than the alternatives, like layers of towels or crinkly plastic sheets. I almost always use the Throe when I masturbate internally and usually for oral and sex as well. I lay my Throe shag side up because I love the feel of the soft, luxurious faux fur, and it’s more absorbent than the satin side. The Throe can be machine washed and dried on low heat, and it looks like a normal blanket so you won’t get any weird stares at the Laundromat.

Simply put, if you squirt or play with someone who does, you need a Fascinator Throe, and even if you don’t, it’s a handy sex accessory to have around. So far it’s the best product I’ve found for keeping ejaculate, lube, sweat, blood, dirty sex toys, or whatever else off of clean sheets or furniture. I’m making due with one for now, but I definitely want to get another one or two so I can have a fresh one ready at all times.

    Hottest throe review I’ve ever read, as I said on Twitter. 😉

    Is the throe more reliable if you double-up the blanket instead of leaving it spread out completely flat? This has helped some heavy squirters I have been lucky enough to know.

    It does take a long time to dry. In good weather I run it through the dryer once and then lay it out flat in the sun in my yard. Then there’s the temptation to lay on it in my yard and that leads to yeah, probably needing more than one throe!

      Thanks Kit! I usually use it spread out so I can move around more if I want to, but doubling it up is a great idea for better squirting protection. I have yet to take my Throe outdoors…I’m adding that to my to-do list! 🙂

    If you are using the Throe you are not likely under any top coverings so here is a suggestion. Buy a vinyl shower curtain. place it under the flat sheet with the Throe on top of the sheet. Between the Throe and the sheet, you have a barrier against vinyl stickiness and lack of breathability. If you leak through the Throe, it stops at the sheet and not down to the fitted sheet and mattress. If you want to protect the fitted sheet you can try a hotel type fabric shower curtain instead of the sheet. You still get relief from plastic and somewhat added fluid protection. The cloth shower curtain works really well for coconut oil lubrication too. Buy one with “button holes” for the hooks and not metal grommets. Don’t worry about the magnets in the bottom or cut them out. They also make cloth curtains in micro fiber. One thing to definitely do with the vinyl curtain: SMELL it before you buy it. There are some with very little “plastic” odor. I usually have a beach towel spread under the fitted sheet in the critical zone too. If you have bleed through, you can save the mattress if it isn’t much and you get on it pretty quickly.

    Hi Penny. I would like to invite you to check out the new blanket on the squirter block. It’s one layer but waterproof from either side, quick drying and doesn’t move around. We have a video on youtube of one that we turned into a fountain display. Use NoMoreWetSpot when you’re searching for it. Fyi. I found your blog from a twitter post about why you post nude pics on your blog. I thought that article was well written and dug deeper. On a side note, the big ugly blog has closed. Cheers!
