Blissful Creations Barney Cock Sleeve

Blissful Creations Barney Cock Sleeve

Blissful Creations Barney Cock Sleeve is our latest review in the quest to find the perfect cock sleeve. However, as we have learned, finding the perfect cock sleeve/sheath is no easy task. It has to fit your penis like a glove on the inside and fit your partner's desires on the outside. The user still wants to feel some sensation while the person being penetrated wants it to feel, well, however they prefer, which can be different from day-to-day. Too short or skinny is bad but too long or too wide really isn't any better. And all this is just talking about the basic size.

There are so many components to a good cock sheath or sleeve: The material and how it moves with you and against the skin, the contour of the design and the way it touches the right spots inside, the visual appeal of the material color and realistic look along with the way it fits naturally to the user's penis. The human body and the penis, in particular, are difficult to replicate in a realistic way and the need to satisfy requirements from both the wearer of the sleeve and the receiver of the sleeve is a real challenge. (For more on this check out my post on “The Best Cock Sleeves for Hard Cocks.”

Having said all of that, if your looking for an ultra-realistic cock sheath/sleeve that is on the larger side but not too massive, look no farther than the not so humble but humbly named “Barney.

Our Experience with Blissful Creations

This is our third review of Blissful Creations cock sleeves and we have been really pleased with the quality, craftsmanship, and customer service. Our previous reviews were for the Mailman and then the Artist and now finally, the Barney. These three sheaths have a lot of similarities so our three reviews have a bit of duplicate content but each sheath created a very different experience worthy of its own review. Also, note that our views became more refined as we tried each sheath, and ultimately this impacted what we, as a couple, view as the perfect sheath/sleeve for us.

What I've learned I like in a Cock Sheath

For me, the perfect cock sheath adds limited length and is also thinner on the girth side. This is because I'm already above average in penis size so adding more is fun but adding too much more is simply too much for my partner. I also selfishly like to retain a decent amount of sensation for myself so a sheath on the thinner side helps me to still feel what I'm doing. This size preference is mainly about her and what she likes. She's happy with my penis as-is but I enjoy giving her something a little different sometimes and also watching her adjust and push her limits a bit. Even the biggest “Size Queen” has a size that is simply too large to really enjoy so it's important to really listen to your partner and make sure that bigger is better in the way that your partner likes.

What she likes in a Cock Sheath (Her Thoughts)

Eli and I have often said that our bodies just fit together perfectly. I've told him throughout his quest to find the perfect cock sleeve that I love what he has and I don't need something else. Having said that, I know this really turns him on and each new sleeve we try creates a type of sexual excitement. We also like to role-play in bed, me pretending to be another woman or him a different man, or imagining we are having a threesome with one of us watching. As it turns out, cock sleeves are great for role-playing because they add to the realism that there is a different partner in the room. We've tried a lot of these sleeves now and definitely found my limit in size. He likes the visual of a very realistic cock and I do too but it's much less important than how it actually feels inside of me. If I'm being totally honest my preference is an open-ended sleeve where I can still feel his head with a shaft that is just a bit girthier but we haven't found a realistic one of those just yet.

Our Experience with Barney

For Mimi this review process has been a bit like a Goldilocks story. Our first experience with The Mailman led to a deep loud orgasm but also left her feeling a bit sore the next day. It was fun but not something she could enjoy very often as it was a bit too Girthy. We next tried The Artist which had a bit less girth, although not enough less to really matter, and added an additional 1.5″ inches. This experience wasn't bad but it was a step back from our Mailman experience. The Sheath was still a bit girthy and then it was also just too long for Mimi to really enjoy. Note that these likes and dislikes are simply preferences in size and shape and not any knock on the products themselves (they are artfully made). Finally, like Goldilocks, we tried one more sleeve, this time Barney. This is the least girthy of the Blissful Creations sleeves and also adds the least possible additional length and, as with Goldilocks, this sheath was “just right.”

From Left to Right: Blissful Creations Artist, Mailman, and Barney Cock Sleeves.

As I write this review we've used Barney about five times. It's still large, measuring 8″ long with a girth of 5.6″ but for Mimi, it's a more manageable size. Barney still has the same ultra-realistic look and feel as our previous Blissful Creations experiences but its slightly smaller size makes it something that Mimi can enjoy from time to time without any next-day discomfort.

The Barney Specs

  • External Length – 8″
  • External Width – 5.6″ (diameter of 1.8″). Can be as large as approx. 6.25″ when worn.
  • Internal Length- Can be customized from 4″ to 7″ in 1/2″ increments
  • Internal Width- 2 options- 1″ or 1.125″
  • Color Variations- 3 options- Rosy, Tan, Dark
  • Materials- Platinum Set Silicon with infused Durian Nut oil (No Durian Nut oil option also available)

Blissful Creations The Barney Cock Sleeve Overview

  • Recommendation: Blissful Creations makes beautiful quality realistic cock sleeves and, for us, The Barney has become our absolute favorite. At 8″ long by 5.6″ of girth this is a big cock by any realistic standard but it is still not too big for Mimi. And that is the key to our recommendation. What's big to one person might be small to another. This sleeve is perfect for us but you may like to go bigger. What's nice is that Blissful Creations has many options but we do think that new or newer cock sleeve users might want to start with Barney as it is always best to want more size than it is to simply have too much.
  • 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. Large but not too big.
  • 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 $90 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. Large but still smaller in comparison to other Blissful Creations sheaths. Great first sheath for those exploring size stimulation. Thinner walls bring more stimulation to the wearer of the sheath. Thinner walls make it a bit easier to put on in comparison to The Mailman and other larger sleeves.
  • Cons: As with all Blissful Creations sheaths, it takes some practice to get it on quickly although once on it is completely secure.
  • 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

Blissful Creations 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 Barney, is the smallest of the Blissful Creations cock sheath line but any man who actually had this cock would be considered to have an enviable porn-star penis.

Custom Internal Sizing (How it Works)

The Barney 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 Barneys' external dimensions are 8″ in length with a girth of 5.6″ (diameter of 1.8″). If you're buying The Barney, this dimension will always be the same. Now for the fun part…

Blissful Creations lets you customize the internal dimensions of whichever cock sleeve you chose. For the Barney, 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 Barney Cock Sleeve will give you a length extension equal to the cock sleeves' external length (8″) minus your actual penis length (in this example 5.5″). So, in this case, the Mailman would provide a 2.5″ extension and a girth increase to 5.6″ 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. I estimate that the Barney has a max worn width of 6.25″ circumference.

This customization is a big part of why the Barney 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 my Barney 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 Barney 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 Barney can also be made without the addition of Durian if requested.

Getting the Barney Cock Sleeve in Place

The Barney 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 these sleeves 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 5.6″ (diameter of 1.8″) in width the Barney Cock Sleeve is the smallest width available via Blissful Creations but remember that this is still BIG and 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. Below is a picture of the wall thickness of three Blissful Creations sheaths. All interior widths shown are the larger 1.125″ width. Notice that the Barney (top) has the thinnest walls, while the Artist (Middle) is only slightly thinner than the Mailman (Bottom). Again, all sheath walls will become thinner when stretched and overall girth will increase when worn depending on the width of the actual penis or toy inside the sleeve.

How Does The Barney Sleeve Feel for Him?

The Blissful Creations Barney Cock Sleeve has the same constant suction pressure sensation as The Mailman and Artist. However, for me, its thinner walls greatly increased the possibility of reaching climax while wearing the sleeve. I've cum inside the Barney sleeve about half the times we have used it together.

During penetration, remember that you won't feel anything beyond the constant suction 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 really good and as I mentioned above, I was able to cum while using the thinner-walled Barney.

For me, the Barney is the best feeling cock sleeve from Blissful Creations. Its thinner walls make a big difference in your ability to feel your partner while still give your partner a real ‘big cock' experience. I also found it more enjoyable because the size was more manageable and ultimately more enjoyable for my partner allowing me to move more quickly without the fear of going too deep. Keep in mind that is after she was really warmed up and accustomed to the size. In other words, go slow.

How Does She Feel about The Barney?

This is Mimi's favorite from Blissful Creations! She really isn't a “size queen” so she has been quite the sport about trying these massive cock sleeves. After trying the Mailman and then the even larger Artist, she was definitely happy to take a slight step back with Barney. She was more relaxed from the start and I think this let her be a bit more accepting of Barney's width. Even then, we still needed to go slow and take our time, always making sure she was really aroused and ready before any penetration.

Mimi's biggest point to me about all these sleeves and a big part of why she likes the Barney so much is about the size. When you stop comparing Barney to the other larger sleeve options from Blissful Creations and instead compare its size to a regular penis, you realize how big it really is. When worn, you're wielding an 8″ long cock measuring a thick 6″+ inches around. This is a similar size to 95% of the larger cocks seen in porn. I think the average male is somewhere around 5″ to 5.5″ long and around 4″ in girth. If your partner has been with a number of men then she/he has probably felt a range of cocks both smaller and larger, but very few would be anything like the size of Barney.

Even though this is the smallest sleeve, from Blissful Creations, you have to realize that once worn (see images below) it reaches comparable widths to the larger sleeves like the Artist or Mailman. As Mimi said to me, “If you reach into a man's pants and touch his penis for the first time, below average is a disappointment and average is a thumbs up, but BIGGER isn't always better. Barney would be considered way above average. It would shock me a bit at first but it's still a size that I wouldn't back away from, as long as he is a good kisser.”

Using The Barney 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 in 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. Notice above how it stretches even around the large base of the silver dildo.

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 it 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. Resulting in a more realistic feel that glides rather than grips like other silicones. Our sleeves, if properly cared for, will last for years of enjoyment.

The best part about our sleeves is that they stay put. They do not slide off during use and are extremely comfortable without having to mess around with an uncomfortable nut strap or harness.

Fact Check and Customer Support

Blissful Creation's marketing claims are honest and customer support is five stars. 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 Barney

Barney is our clear favorite in the Blissful Creations line of cock sheaths and definitely one that will stay near the top of our sex toy chest. It has the same quality feel and realism as the other sleeves we have tried but its thinner walls give the wearer a bit more feeling and its smaller girth is perfect to give Mimi a bigger fuller experience that borders on but still isn't too big to enjoy. Again, I can't say enough how impressed I've been with the attention to detail in visual design and realism of touch and feel from all the Blissful Creation sleeves. The choice of which one to get really comes down to your desired fantasy and the desires of your partner. If you get something too large it will be a bad experience for both of you, no matter how realistic and quality the sleeve is. 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.
