Blissful Creations The Artist Cock Sleeve


Mimi and I's first experience with Blissful Creations came with The Mailman cock sleeve/sheath. It caught my eye due to its ultra-realistic design and attention to detail which gave it a spot on our list of The Best Cock Sheaths and Sleeves for Hard Cocks. That experience provided me with a huge amount of girth and about an inch of additional length. Its width was a challenge for Mimi but by taking it very slowly, she was able to relax and enjoy the experience. So, of course, I had to push the envelope a bit more and try The Artist, another ultra-realistic cock sleeve with an additional one and a half inches of length more than the Mailman.

Like the Mailman, the Artist is made of the highest quality materials, and both looks and feels realistic. The core ingredient is medical grade silicone but there is an additional infusion of Durian nut oil which provides a smoother and more realistic texture when touched (Note that it can also be made without the Durian for those concerned with allergies). In girth, it is still massive but a bit shy of the Mailman's heroic width. However, it is quite a bit longer at 9.5 inches which is all fully insertable if your partner is willing and able. Like most Blissful Creations toys, the internal sizing is customizable ranging from 4 to 7 inches and 1 to 1.125 in width (Don't worry it stretches). Blissful Creations sells all its custom toys on Etsy.

Blissful Creations The Artist Cock Sleeve Overview

  • Recommendation: If your looking for a realistic cock sleeve, you should definitely try Blissful Creations. Currently, we have tried the Mailman and the Artist. Both have similar widths but for us, the Artist was too long. Put simply, without the ability to take all 9.5″ (and who could blame her), Mimi couldn't get down and grind, pubic bone to pubic bone, as she likes. The width was very slightly less than The Mailman but not enough to notice so if you like this width but don't want the extra length, I would go for The Mailman instead. UPDATE: I recently learned that the exterior length can be customized as a special request so if you love the shape of The Artist but want it shorter, they can remove the length from the base.
  • Key Attributes: Custom internal sizing for a perfect fit and realistic look. Ultra-realistic look and feel. Premium quality silicone with infused Durian Nut oil. Long and Wide.
  • Comparable Products: Vixen Skin Colossus is the closest non-Blissful Creations toy but Colossus is one size fits all, uses a ball strap, and doesn't feel as realistic. The most comparable products are really the other models available from Blissful Creations.
  • Value: (Our perception of price vs. effectiveness): At approximately $100 for a custom-sized, top-quality cock sleeve/sheath we consider this a great deal.
  • Pros: Custom internal sizing. 3 color choices. Super realistic look and feel.. Heroic in size (perfect for size queens and kings)
  • Cons: Thick sidewalls mean less stimulation for the wearer. Although it still feels good, it may be difficult for the penis inside the sleeve or sheath to actually cum during penetration. It also takes a bit of practice to get it on quickly although once on it is completely secure. Lastly, this is a HUGE penis sleeve/sheath in both width and LENGTH which will need to be used with great care.
  • Alternatives: The perfect fit Fat Boy line is a non-realistic looking alternative that provides a bit more stimulation for the wearer but nothing beats Blissful Creations in realistic cock sleeves/sheaths.

Ultra-Realistic Cock Sleeve Design

I'm now the proud owner of the Mailman and the Artist and I have my sites set on the Barney too. Why? These cock sleeves (technically cock sheaths, as they cover the penis head) are incredibly realistic providing the perfect toy for role play fantasies. That ultra-realistic look is from the materials/design and the internal customization which creates the realistic fantasy look when worn. As I wrote in my review of the Mailman, “everything just looks right, or maybe more accurately, it looks natural. Each sleeve is not perfect or entirely symmetrical but neither is anything in nature. Even the fact that these sleeves don't require a ball strap to hold them on, makes them look natural and help get both halves of a couple in the mood visually.” The Blissful Creations Artist cock sleeve even has a tapered base to look as natural as possible where it meets the pubic bone and a tapered head to help your partner accommodate its 9.5″ of length.

Custom Internal Sizing (How it Works)

The Artist is one of the many models of Cock Sleeve available by Blissful Creations. Each of these Cock Sleeves has a different external size and shape that always remains the same. For example, the Artists' external dimensions are 9.5″ in length with a girth of 6.5″ (diameter of 2″). If you're buying The Artist, this dimension will always be the same. (UPDATE: I recently heard that they can shorten standard external lengths by removing material from the base. This makes the internal sizing discussion a bit more confusing so, for this discussion, assume that all external dimensions are truly fixed.)

Now for the fun part…

Blissful Creations lets you customize the internal dimensions of whichever cock sleeve you chose. For the Artist, you can order internal dimensions ranging from 4″ to 7″ in half-inch increments and you can choose between a 1″ or a 1.125″ diameter (don't worry it will stretch to fit your width). So, for example, if your actual penis is 5.5″ and a bit thicker than average, you would order the 5.5″ with a 1.125 diameter. Note that regarding width, Blissful Creations recommends that if your penis is between 1.25″ and 1.5″ in diameter to go with the 1″ width option and if your penis is over 1.5″ in width to go with the 1.125″ diameter option.

Since the external measurements of the cock sleeve never change, the Blissful Creations Artist Cock Sleeve will give you a length extension equal to the cock sleeves' external length (9.5″) minus your actual penis length (in this example 5.5″). So, in this case, the Artist would provide a 4″ extension and a girth increase to 6.5″ plus a bit of stretch from the diameter of your penis. Note that the final width of any cock sleeve when worn is really tricky to determine because of the vastly varying penis widths and shapes and the way the silicone stretches. The Artist is said to have a max worn width of 7.25″.

This customization is a big part of why the Mailman looks so realistic because you completely fill the toy with the base extending all the way to your pubic bone. Without this level of customization, unless you coincidentally happen to be the perfect size for a sleeve, it will always be a bit too short or too long, either leaving you exposed at the base or flopping around at the tip.

Custom Realistic Color Options

Beyond the ability to customize the internal size of your Blissful Creations Cock Sleeve, you are also given the choice of three color options. I chose the Tan complexion for The Artist which looks realistic against my skin color but in reality, the Rosy would be equally realistic for me. Again, as with the attention to detail on the texture and feel, the color options are subtle variations like the actual color variations on the human body.

Blissful Creations Color Options

Natural Feel

Mimi and I have used a lot of dildos and sleeves and have found ‘hardness' to be a big factor in pleasure and comfort. Too hard doesn't feel realistic and too soft can be equally unnatural. Blissful Creations seems to have found the perfect balance with their choice of hardness and use of Platinum Set Silicone. The second component to creating realistic feeling dildos and sleeves is the sensation under your fingertips as you rub across the toy. Is it sticky? Tacky? Does your hand glide across without any resistance? Finding the perfect combination of ‘give' and ‘friction' to mimic nature is very difficult. This feeling under the fingers is the problem with most dildos and sleeves as the silicone becomes almost sticky or tacky when dry. This is where Blissful Creations has outperformed everyone with the introduction of Durian Tree Nut Oil to the Silicone. This removes that stickiness and creates a very natural feeling touch, even without lube.

Body Safe Materials

The Blissful Creations Artist Cock Sleeve is comprised of top quality Platinum Set Silicone with a proprietary blend of Durian Tree Nut Oil. This combination gives Blissful Creations sleeves an unmatched realistic look, feel, and longevity. Warning: Anyone with a Durian Tree nut allergy should be advised and test prior to use and or use a protective condom. However, also note that Durian Tree Nut Allergies are rare and the Artist can also be made without the addition of Durian if requested.

Getting the Artist Cock Sleeve in Place

The Artist and all Blissful Creations sleeves that I've tested to-date can be a bit of a challenge to put on. That being said, once you've learned a few tricks and have experimented on what works best for you, it gets pretty easy. I went into great detail on how to put it on in my review of The Mailman so I will not go too deeply here.

The short version is to warm the sleeve up for 5 minutes in hot water and then turn the sleeve inside out, pulling the base up as far as you can toward the head of the sheath. Then, stretch the remaining bit of sheath open and push your erect penis into the sleeve. In order to get fully into the sleeve, you will likely need to take one finger and push it in, with your penis to help release any trapped air. Note that the instructions call for a dry penis and sheath but I needed to put just a touch of lube on my head and the deepest bit of the sleeve in order to fully push myself in. With the trapped air released, you can push your head to the end of the sheath and then slowly pull the inside-out portion of the sheath back down to wrap around your cock. It will fit VERY snuggly and the air-suction will keep the sheath in place, even if your erection increases or decreases throughout your session.

Actual Width in Use

Measuring a girth of 6.5″ (diameter of 2″) in width the Blissful Creations Artist Cock Sleeve is BIG but remember that it gets even wider when worn. Total width with a penis inserted in the sleeve is very difficult to determine as every real penis has a different girth and as the penis stretches the walls of the sleeve, the sleeve walls get slightly thinner.

Widths of Blissful Creations Artist vs Mailman
Blissful Creations Artist (top) compared to Mailman (bottom). Notice that the Artist is a bit thinner than the Mailman. Both will become thinner when stretched but overall girth will increase when worn depending on the width of the actual penis or toy inside the sleeve.

How Does The Artist Sleeve Feel for Him?

The Blissful Creations Artist Cock Sleeve has the same constant suction pressure sensation as The Mailman. It feels good but wouldn't make you cum on its own. During penetration, you won't feel anything beyond this constant pressure until you've fully inserted the extension portion of the sleeve into your partner. Beyond this point, you can feel the additional pressure created as this massive cock sleeve slowly stretches the walls of your partner's opening. The thickness of the sheath means that you will not feel the same friction or full sensation as sex without a sleeve but your slight movement within the sheath and the pressure from your partner still feels excellent.

As is true with The Mailman, I think it would be pretty hard for the wearer to cum during sex unless you're cumming from the erotic visual or the audible moans of your partner. Put more bluntly, this is a legendary fantasy cock experience. You have this massive super pornstar cock and your partner is taking it. Maybe scared at first by it, then rising to the challenge, taking it slowly, and finally, if all goes well, riding it until they cum.

Regarding pleaser to the wearer, it will greatly depend on your real penis length as that will determine how much of the actual you gets to go inside your partner. If you have a 6″ cock in real life and you're wearing the 9.5″ Artist, the first 3.5″ of penetration will be all toy and you will only be able to insert your full 6″ if your partner can take all 9.5″

For me, the most Interesting part of this experience was the realization that a man with a true 9.5″ porn star cock would have a fair amount of frustrating sex in which his partner wouldn't be able to take his whole cock. Which also means that he can never really “pound that pussy” so to speak as he would always have to be careful not to thrust too deeply as most of us can rely on our bodies slapping together and safely stopping penetration when we are moving at a fast or frantic pace.

How Does She Feel about The Artist?

Mimi (my partner in life, sex, and love) was really apprehensive about the size of the Blissful Creations Mailman Cock Sleeve but ultimately that experience was a good one. The Artist Cock Sleeve, is only slightly smaller in width (not really visible to the eye) and a whopping 9.5″ in length. This was by far the largest sleeve we have ever tried and to be honest, she looked a bit like a “deer in headlights”, big eyed and frozen in place when I walked naked across the room to meet her in bed. She relaxed and gave it her best effort but I think that visual of my massive Artist's cock swinging across the room never really left her mind.

She still enjoyed the realistic feel and she, in time, relaxed to enjoy the added girth but the 9.5″ length was just too much for her to ever fully relax. In retrospect, I think that somewhere around 8″ is really Mimi's max enjoyable size so The Mailman was really a better experience for us.

Using The Artist Cock Sleeve on Other Toys

Blissful Creation sleeves/sheaths can also be used to cover other toys and vibrators to get more, and different use out of the toys you already have. As stated by Blissful Creations on their Etsy page, all of their sleeves can be used with your favorite toys (Not just on your penis). They easily conform to whatever shape toy might be your favorite. Just remember to remove the sleeve from your toy after use, clean, and store it back on its tube. The silicone has great stretch memory but should not be left on larger than 1″ diameter toys for optimal life and function. The silicone can easily accommodate up to a 2″ diameter toy or penis.

Clean Up and Storage

To keep this work of art in good condition for years, it is recommended to clean with soap and water after every use. It is also a good idea to use some sort of sex toy cleaner although this is just my opinion. After washing, let the cock sleeve dry completely. Once dry it is best to wrap it in a cotton cloth and if storing for more than a week or so, it is recommended to give it a light dusting of corn starch before wrapping in cloth. Although the corn starch thing seems a little weird, it is a non-toxic natural substance that does a great job at keeping silicone toys like the Blissful Creations Sleeves from becoming tacky or sticky over time.

Who is Blissful Creations?

As stated by Blissful Creations on Etsy:

Blissful Creations specializes in custom made realistic and fantasy penis sleeves/extensions for men and your toys. Depending on which sleeve you choose you can add inches to your length and girth. Each Blissful Creation is custom made to fit the individual. Making each fit perfect and as comfortable as possible. Our sleeves are made from platinum medical grade silicone plus an additive derived from Durian tree nuts The use of this additive leaves our silicone with a silky smooth finish and feel.

Fact Check and Customer Support

After testing the Blissful Creations Mailman Cock Sleeve and now The Artist, I am happy to report that their marketing claims and positioning of their products are spot-on. Regarding, customer support, I also found it to be top-notch. When I first stumbled across Blissful Creations, I reached out with a series of questions and was very happy to receive quick thoughtful responses that helped me to know which cock sleeve would be best for me.

Final Words on The Artist

As I clearly showed in my review of The Mailman, I'm a big fan of Blissful Creations products. If you're looking for a realistic cock sleeve that fits perfectly and feels realistic, Blissful Creations are the best around. And Approximately $100 bucks for a custom-sized sleeve like this is a great deal. Having said all that, for us, The Artist was just too big (long really) and I say this with the full understanding that for others it still might not be big enough. This leads to my final point on Blissful Creations sleeves/sheaths. They are all made with the best materials and look ultra-realistic and they are all BIG. In the end, how much you use them will really come down to how much the receiver in a couple likes the feel during penetration. Big can be fun but too big is just painful. If your buying as a surprise, I would suggest going with a version you feel confident she or he can enjoy and if they say they want more, you can always move up in size. In other words… work your way up for the best experience.
