Review: Shilo by NY Toy Collective (Part 2: Packing)

This is the second half of my review of the Shilo by New York Toy Collective [find the first part here]. This half is more of an overview of my experience packing with the Shilo.

I mildly freaked out my partner by removing all the furniture from the living room and most of my clothes from the drawers to bring you this video of me air humping in a onesie… I mean, showing you how the Shilo looks under different clothing types, so check it out:

I’d never packed before the Shilo, over and above tucking my hard dildo into a pair of sweats so I could get pizza from the delivery person, and although I don’t think I will start packing regularly, I love having the option to bring my cock with me so that I am ready for any cock-related events that might take place.

The Shilo isn’t intended to pack without a harness: its base is too large to sit well against the body without support. I prefer wearing it with a brief style harness like the one in this video, the SpareParts TomBoi, because it feels like wearing underwear (with a bonus cock holder), but any dildo harness you feel comfortable in will work.

I’m drawn to a more discrete look when packing, and since I’m mildly paranoid about roaming dick syndrome, I like the Shilo to be pressed snug against my body, but the Shilo can also be less subtle and even a huge show-off too. It’s all in the way you pack beacause different positions provide different looks and feels:

Tucking the Shilo between the thighs: For me, this is the most discrete option, especially with a pair of snug underwear over top to keep the Shilo from escaping the thigh hold.
Bending the Shilo to the side, into the leg band of the harness: This is pretty discrete under looser clothing and and doesn’t need an added layer of underwear to keep it secure, but I feel uncomfortable wearing it for a long period of time as my paranoia keeps thinking that the tight band is somehow going to turn to razor blades and decapitate my cock… or something along those line [I’m sure Freud would have something to say about that].
Tucking up into the waistband of underwear: This option lends a moderate bulge. It’s not as secure as the above options but I don’t get the same horror movie-esque feeling I had with the harness band.
Picking a pant leg: Simply tucking the Shilo down into one of the pant legs says, “Look no further for a glorious peen outline!” It’s very freeing, but you’ve got to be committed to a Jon Hamm moment.

And now, the verdict on what I originally named THE PANTS TEST (dun dun duuuunnnn), but it’s not much of a test… more like an exhibition where I drop my pants repeatedly to show you how fabulous the Shilo looks under everything.

1. Loose pants- Low-crotch pants are prime for packing because you can wear the Shilo in any of the above ways with varying amounts of discretion and security. In the video I show the Shilo bent into the leg of my harness because it fits naturally in the crease of my leg, below the hip bone, and since the crotch is so low, tucking between the legs definitely required added underwear to stay in place.

2. Skirt/ dress- Loose fitting skirts/ dresses work really well with the Shilo because, like loose pants, you can essentially wear it however you want [you could likely even go for a full erection under a ball gown]. Tighter skirts are a challenge if you’re looking for discretion, but the best option seems to be pointing the Shilo down to make it as flush with the thighs as possible like in this video by NY Toy Collective.

3. Tight Jeans- Packing in jeans that are on the snug side is really comfortable for me. No matter how I position the Shilo, there is always some bulge, but the jeans hold the Shilo securely against the body. I prefer tucking between the legs (as seen in the video) because it feels the most secure, and it’s also easy to customize the size of one’s bulge by making minor adjustments to the positioning.

4. Tights/ leggings- Tights are great if you reeaaally want the Shilo to stay in place. I imagine this also pertains to bike shorts, leggings, and other ultra tight things for one’s legs. Plus, I found something very sexy about wearing sheer tights over the Shilo.

BONUS: Onesie- All cock-formations pair well with a onesie, but I especially like the “pick a pant leg” option for optimal agility.

Note: These opinions are all based on my own experience, and will no doubt vary based on body type, clothing choice, personal comfort, and expression.

If you have experience packing with the Shilo or you’re just an amazing packing sensei, share your stories and tips in the comments!

A huge, loving thank you to SheVibe for sending me the Shilo, free of charge, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.

  1. You’re so adorable in that video! Very informative too! I was looking for a dildo to pack with. Been interested by the Shilo, but I have so much in stock now that I doubt I’ll even have time to try it if I really got it. But it’s decided! I’m getting this when I have the time and money!

    • Yay! Thank you *throws glitter*
      It really is fabulous and I wish I had more interest in packing regularly just because I love it so much.

  3. Roaming cock syndrome = comedic gold.

    I am not the dick-wielder in my current relationship, but I loved this review a lot nonetheless! (You get extra super bonus points for making me want an item that I have zero use for. Extra suuuuper.)

    • Thank you!
      I hate when that happens! Like, “this things is so wonderful and pretty and I want it even though all I’ll do is admire it in my drawer!” I can’t say I’m not proud of myself for convincing you of the Shilo’s awesomeness though haha

  4. Oh thank you so much. This video is so cute plus the review!! I’m so excited to show my gf, we’re both new to strap-ons, dildos, and toys in general. Your’s felt honest and not too intimidating.

    • That’s so amazing to hear, thank you! Stap-ons can be intimidating at first, so I’m happy I could make you feel a little more at ease and excited!
