The Anal Pleasure plug is made from two materials: silicone and plastic. The anal plug itself is made from silicone, while the remote control is made from plastic. Both of the pieces have a very soft and silky-type of sensation to them, so when your run your hands over either the remote or the plug, your fingers will glide against the material. It feels quite silky smooth.
The remote is made from hard plastic. Even the buttons are made from plastic (though that plastic is slightly glossy to make it easier to push with lubricated hands). There is a seam that runs along the sides of the remote as well as a divot along the front of the remote that helps with grasping the remote.
If you aren't fond of textured toys, the plug is going to be a good choice for you. It has no texture on it at all. The entire toy is made from the completely smooth silicone. There isn't even a tangible seam running along any side of the toy. While the plug isn't entirely rigid, it isn't very flexible, either. You'll get a very bit of bend along the tip of the plug, but otherwise, the rest of the plug is rigid and immobile.
There is no odor from the toy at all. It requires no "airing out".
The plug has a pretty basic design, but it lends itself well to anal pleasure. The tip is extremely tapered. At the smallest point near the tip, this plug is slimmer than a finger which makes it fantastic for beginners. At the thickest point (around the bulb near the base), the plug is still slightly smaller than the width of most human penises. This size lends itself particularly well to newbies to anal, but partnered with the vibrations, it still provides enough girth for those who regularly enjoy anal.
The base of the plug offers a slim, T-shaped design. This allows the base to fit more comfortably between the cheeks. Instead of having a large base pushing against both sides of your skin, this plug fits snugly and with minimal pressure to the cheeks.
Over time, the plug will slide itself out of the butt. This is because the size difference between the largest spot and the retention area isn't large enough. However, this shouldn't be an issue for most people as the plug is really designed to "set and forget". It isn't designed for use while walking around or doing other activities that would help push the plug out.
The cord is long enough to run between two people; this makes it particularly good for partner play. However, the cord isn't excessively long, so you and your partner will need to be right next to one another to take advantage of having your partner hold the remote while you use the plug. It does, however, make it simple to use the plug during intercourse while still having the remote available at any time to change the vibrations, instead of needing to be able to get at the plug itself.
Simple to use, the remote offers two buttons to power the vibrations. There's a power button and then there's the pattern button. The power button will turn the vibrations on and off while the pattern button allows you to cycle through the available patterns. There is a decent amount of patterns here - however, there only seems to be a single speed of strong-ish vibrations. There doesn't seem to be a low, medium, and high. There seems to be a "high" plus a bunch of patterns such as dot-dot-dash or an escalation pattern. If you enjoy constant-speed vibrations at different levels, this plug doesn't offer that. However, it offers different pattern choices.
The single intensity of vibrations is above-average in intensity. It isn't the strongest vibrator out there, but most people should find the vibrations more-than-adequate for enjoyment. The vibrations aren't particularly loud, either. With it inserted, it's very hard to hear the vibrations when sitting in the same room. Through a closed door should be even more difficult.
For easier use with a partner, the indicator light on the remote corresponds with the pattern the vibrator is on. It will blink for dot-dot-dash patterns and so forth. It basically mimics exactly what the vibrations are doing in the plug.
The slender butt plug base allows the plug to slide between the cheeks and sit comfortably. You will not have to deal with the base pushing into the skin of the cheeks while wearing it. Because of the cord running out of the base, it isn't recommended to "sit" on this plug while upright for long periods of time to avoid potentially causing issues with the wire. Instead, to care best for the wiring, try to use this plug without placing a lot of pressure on the base of the plug.
People who prefer smaller anal toys will find this plug most enjoyable. While the bulb at the base provides some girth, it is still slimmer than an average penis. For that reason, people who love large sizes may find this plug a bit underwhelming. It makes up for its slimmer size with nice vibrations, but the size may be a bit of an adjustment. The slimmer size, however, makes the plug accessible to people who have never tried anal before as the end of the tapered point is even slimmer than a finger.
This plug is made from silicone material and, since it vibrates, it's also electric. These two things make it simple to care for, but it still requires some caution. Ensure that, during cleaning, no water gets near the ports or into the battery pack. The plug simply detaches from the remote to reduce the likelihood of damaging the electric parts during cleaning.
As this is made from a standard silicone, it's simple to clean. Just use warm water and anti-bacterial soap. The plug doesn't have any crevices or hard-to-reach places, so it's as simple as cleaning the entirety of the plug thoroughly.
Water-based lubricant is the most recommended lube for this toy. Some silicone-based lubricants may be compatible, but ensure that you do a very small spot-test on the toy to ensure that the silicone-based lubricant will work with your plug. All water-based lubricants should be compatible.
If you're short on space or want things to be discreet, the packaging may not work for long-term storage. It's much larger than the plug and isn't discreet. A plastic bag or any other type of bag should be sufficient for storage. The silicone and plastic material don't pick up hair or fuzz, so this toy works particularly well for those who don't like to be picky about storage.
The packaging isn't discreet, but it does clearly explain what the toy is. One side of the packaging clearly displays the plug itself while the opposing side shows a photo of the plug. The box is mostly-rectangle-shaped which makes it easy for gift wrapping purposes.
Inside the box, the toy is packaged in a plastic tray specifically designed for the shape of the toy. This piece of plastic will hold the toy steady inside the packaging if you choose to use the packaging for long-term storage. However, the packaging is much larger than the toy itself, so using the original packaging for long-term storage isn't a space-conscious option.
For those who prefer a bit of information, the packaging clearly shares the battery requires (2xAAA), the materials (silicone and ABS plastic), and cleaning and care instructions. The packaging easily includes enough instructions for most people to easily use the toy straight out of the box.
The packaging states that the toy was designed in the USA while made in China.
