Review: Liberator Fascinator Throe

Allow me to profess my love for the Liberator Fascinator. If there’s one bedroom accessory any fun loving sexual being needs in their life, it’s a Liberator Fascinator, hands down. It’s the perfect complement to any sex toy collection. Sex is rarely a clean affair. Female ejaculator? No more will you have to lug your comforter to a laundromat to wash it every week. Get a little messy with body paints? Just throw down your Fascinator and you won’t have to fight over who has to sleep on the sticky spot. Hands get a little slippery during a massage? Craving some period sex? I think you get my point. The Fascinator is incredibly versatile. Hell, I’ve even used mine when my dog was sick so she didn’t vomit on my bedding. It’s easy to throw in the washer and it doesn’t stain. All evidence of your night is washed away in one quick load. I’ve been eyeing the Fascinator ever since I’ve discovered my abilities to squirt. My partner loves making me squirt but he wasn’t the one washing three towels, two throw blankets, and two comforters every time it happened. Something had to change because the mountain of laundry was getting old.

The Basics

The Fascinator is a waterproof blanket made by Liberator, the company famous for their amazing sexual positioning pillows. One side of the Fascinator is a silky satin while the other side is a soft microfiber. Both sides work well as the waterproof layer is sewn in between the two fabrics. I tend to be a high volume squirter and I have never had this leak onto my bedding in the year I’ve owned it. There can be a huge puddle on the blanket and my comforter beneath it is dry as can be.

The blanket is large enough to cover most of my queen size bed, with dimensions of 72”x 54”. I never have any issue with it being too small for my sexcapdes. All lube, bodily fluids, body paints, massage oils, and the like have stayed within the confines of the blanket as long as we do. It can be thrown over a couch, on the floor, on the grass, or anywhere else your lust takes you. The blanket is discreet and can easily pass for a regular old throw blanket if you leave it on your couch or bed. It’s usually sitting on top of my dog’s kennel next to my bed and no one who has come into my bedroom has said anything about it. It can also travel easily, making it easy to spare your hotel bedding as well without raising any TSA agent’s eyebrows.

Washing the Fascinator is as easy as washing your other bedding. Throw it in the washer and wash it on a cold water delicate cycle and then tumble dry on low heat. I use my standard laundry detergent and I haven’t noticed any damage to it so I’m going to take a guess and say a delicate detergent isn’t necessary. Water-, silicone-, and oil-based products have all come right out of the blanket, leaving it looking as new as the day I bought it.

The Bad Stuff
My one and only complaint about the Fascinator is that it doesn’t absorb liquid. I don’t know about you but my least favorite part of cleaning up is trying to roll off my Fascinator when my ass is in a pool of my own fluids. I also hate having to dump the liquid off of it somehow before I can carry it to my washing machine. It’s not always easy to get it to the bathtub unnoticed. I live in a house with five other people and carrying a large purple satin blanket filled with suspicious liquids does not invite questions I want to answer. I suppose I could lay down a towel to absorb the fluid but that just creates more laundry and defeats the purpose of the blanket. Overall, I’ll deal with the pooling liquid to keep my bedding dry.

I love coming up with alternative uses for the Fascinator. I’m tempted to pick up another one so I have one designated sex blanket, one alternative blanket. So far it’s been used for:
  • Infant play space (no more baby puke carpets!)
  • Car blanket for car sick pets
  • Picnic blanket
  • Beach blanket
  • Placing under messy eaters

  1. My female cat eats too fast, doesn't always chew, and throws up on our bed all the time. I got tired of taking the king size comforter to the laundromat every week and paying to wash it, so I started putting our Liberator Throe on the bed when my fiance and I leave for work in the morning. If she throws up, I don't have to take the comforter to the laundromat and strip the bed to wash the sheets. It's so much easier to wash just one blanket in the washer at home for free.
