Review: Kudu Voodoo Mini Aleya

Kudu Voodoo's mini Aleya stroker, sitting on top of a leafy green plant.

Aleya is a fantasy stroker toy with a moth-inspired silhouette. It’s offered in 3 sizes and made to accommodate a variety of anatomies. The large size is recommended for people with penises, while the small is geared towards AFAB and intersex people with larger clitorides. I own an Aleya stroker in the mini size, which is designed for smaller anatomies. This includes AFAB people who are not on T, as well as trans folks on T with minimal bottom growth. 

It’s made by Kudu Voodoo, a gender-inclusive fantasy toy shop based in Texas. They sell a wide variety of platinum silicone dildos, plugs, packers, and squishy/stim toys. Since Kudu Voodoo pours all of their products by hand, no two toys are exactly alike. KV offers some really unique models & color combinations, and I highly recommend checking them out!

Design

Every time I look at Aleya, I’m struck by how intricately it’s designed. Its front features a beautiful collection of grooves, bumps, and curves around the entrance. Just above the opening, Aleya has a small clitoris for added stimulation. There is a ribbed texture on the top and sides of the toy, followed by wavy, vine-like details on the underside. 

My Aleya is mostly blue, with some white, pink, yellow, and green shades towards the bottom. The marbling is very organic and reminds me of tie dye, which I love.

Something cool about this toy is that it can be used for activities other than penetration. It could be used for vaginal insertion, or as a grinding toy for external stimulation. It could even be used as a desk squishy! However, this toy is not anal safe, so please don’t put it in your butt.

Specs

Kudu Voodoo Mini Aleya Measurements:

  • Total length: 3”
  • Maximum external circumference: 5.25”
  • Minimum external circumference: 3.75”
  • Entrance depth: 0.25”
  • Entrance diameter: 0.25”

Note: These are the dimensions according to my measurements, but the Kudu Voodoo website lists the mini Aleya’s dimensions differently. Because Aleya is made and molded by hand, there may be variations in sizing.

Materials & Care

Aleya is made from a soft platinum silicone, rated 0030 on the shore durometer scale. In common terms, the firmness is comparable to the muscle of my inner palm when I press my thumb and middle finger together. Kudu Voodoo also offers this model in a supersoft firmness, which I still have yet to try.

Silicone is a non-porous material that can be fully sterilized, making it body-safe. Aleya can be sterilized in boiling water, or even run through the dishwasher on the “sanitize” setting.[1]If you choose to use the dishwasher to clean your toys, make sure to run it without dish soap.

For everyday care, I just clean the Kudu Voodoo Aleya with unscented soap and water. Since it has lots of bumps and grooves, I like to use a soft toothbrush to scrub the front and sides while cleaning. Once Aleya has finished air drying, I store it in a microfiber pouch to prevent dust and fuzz from getting on the toy.

Accessibility

The Kudu Voodoo Aleya has a larger head that tapers into a narrower body, making it more ergonomic to hold. The ribbed texture helps to improve grip, which comes in handy (ha) when it’s covered in lube. Since the toy is fairly small, it’s also lightweight.

I don’t love the shape of Aleya’s front end, which is like a wider, slightly squished version of a circle. While it’s visually appealing, Aleya’s shape makes it awkward to fit between my outer labia. In order to use Aleya as intended, I have to lean forward in a Gollum-like squat, knees bent at a steep angle as I try to maintain my balance. This position is uncomfortable and hard on my joints; it doesn’t make me feel particularly sexy, either.[2]Not that looking/feeling sexy is a required part of masturbation, but the sounds produced by my creaky-ass knees can really kill the mood.

That being said, Aleya’s design is not ideal for bigger bodies, folks with limited mobility, and people with larger labia and/or pubic mounds.

My Experience

Pre-T, No Bottom Growth:

Because Aleya’s entrance is about the size of a pencil eraser, I couldn’t easily fit my entire dick[3]This is the terminology I use to describe my clitoris, but I know that individual preferences may vary. Feel free to substitute with whatever words feel best for you. inside. I had more success when I used a pump beforehand, because the suction helped to pull my dick farther outside of the hood. Once the hood was more retracted, I was able to fully fit inside of Aleya’s opening with the help of some water-based lube.

Aleya has a fairly shallow channel, which made it difficult to keep my dick inside during use. I wasn’t able to use it with a “jerking off” motion as I had hoped, so I had to get creative. My preferred way to use Aleya was suctioning it onto my junk and grinding up against it. I couldn’t get off with the Kudu Voodoo Aleya by itself. However, I was able to orgasm when using it along with a g-spot toy.

Small Growth on T:

Testosterone has increased both the length and width of my dick, so I decided to re-test Aleya after being on T for about a month. At this point, my dick was slightly more projected from the hood, and I didn’t need to use a pump before using Aleya.

I thought that having some bottom growth would make this toy easier to use, but boy howdy was I wrong. Penetrating the Kudu Voodoo Aleya was a challenge due to how small the entrance is. After some experimentation and a lot of swearing, I was able to mostly fit inside of the toy. 

Keeping it in place was another story. In order to prevent my dick from falling out, I had to press Aleya quite firmly against myself. When I tried thrusting into it, Aleya’s texture would end up getting smashed against my pubic bone, leaving me sore in a not-hot way.  

The suction was so intense that I could only use Aleya for short periods of time. If I wasn’t careful, I’d become painfully overstimulated and have to stop immediately. The pain would always go away after a few minutes, but it wasn’t something that I found enjoyable.

Moderate Growth on T:

Around the 3 month mark of being on testosterone, I decided to try Aleya one last time. I was well aware of what I was (or more accurately, wasn’t) getting myself into beforehand, but I’m also stubborn as hell.

I had to pretty much wrangle my dick into the opening, but even then, I could only fit the tip inside. Aleya’s suction was as strong as ever, and I couldn’t comfortably move the toy around at all. Just having it suctioned on to my dick was overwhelmingly intense, and started to hurt after a bit.

It took some effort for me to pull Aleya off of my body – that suction is no joke. By the time I managed to remove it, my dick had gone completely numb from the lack of circulation, which was slightly alarming.

I briefly tried grinding against the front of Aleya without penetrating it, but I found the texture to be too intense for me. It may have been more enjoyable in a supersoft silicone, but the I felt that the texture was a little rough in KV’s soft firmness. That being said, my sensitivity levels have been unusually high since starting HRT.

Overall

Kudu Voodoo’s mini Aleya didn’t work well for my particular anatomy, but a lot of that was due to fit-related issues. However, it’s not an inherently bad toy; I’d still recommend it to people with petite anatomies. This might not be the best option for people on T, AFAB folks with larger anatomies, and people with heightened sensitivity levels.

Overall, the mini Aleya is an affordable, body-safe penetrable that can create some intense suction. If your anatomy is on the smaller side (pencil eraser-sized or smaller), this toy might be worth looking into.

Aleya is also offered in small and large sizes.

You can buy the mini Aleya stroker for $10 from Kudu Voodoo’s inventory. 

I purchased this toy with my own money, and was not compensated in the form of cash or a free toy.
