Luckily, the anal finger doesn't smell very strong, and does not retain smell. It does have a bit of a plastic-like smell to it, but it's definitely not something you'd notice... unless you put your nose up to it.
It's made of TPE (Thermoplastic elastomer), which has a rubbery feel. It's a little porous, making it a toy you cannot sterilize.
The toy is very squishy. It actually could probably make for an OK stress-relief toy, if you ever retire it as a sex toy.
While it seems a bit small (and may be for some), this toy is actually a pretty good size. It can fit in the palm of your hand and easily be tucked away. For any couple that enjoys (or is looking to introduce) anal play, the anal finger is good to have handy. It can be good toy to warm up with, or a naughty little addition to any sexual play.
The anal finger is very smooth and compact. It was a tiny bit too squishy when I first tried inserting it, and it bent around a bit as I wriggled it in. But, once inside, the size is just enough to feel naughty and add to the overall sexual sensation.
It can be cleaned with warm water and soap, or a toy cleaner. Since the anal finger cannot be sterilized, use a condom on it if you plan on sharing it. This toy can be used with silicone or water based lube, and a tiny drop goes a long way on this rubbery toy. It is slightly sticky, so it will collect dust. I recommend rinsing it off before use, just to make sure there are no hairs or dust stuck to it.
The Anal finger was packaged very simply. It was in a clear plastic case, and came with one paper insert, as you can see in one of the pictures.
When I first got this package out of the box, my (and my boyfriends') initial reaction was, "that's it?" So, I lowered my expectations a bit, and assumed it would just be a little disappointing. I was very pleasantly surprised as I first used it because it reminded me of a finger, but was smoother, cleaner, and just as naughty.
