Juice is made from 100% silicone, which rates a 10/10 on the Eden material safety scale. This toy is made from food-grade material, is hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous, and phthalates free. This is one of the safest material types carried by Eden, and is arguably the best choice for anal play.
This silicone toy is very firm. The neck and base of the toy are the only areas that bend easily. Even when you squeeze the toy as much as you can, there's no obvious give to it. It's a very firm silicone which makes insertion much easier, but might make some users feel uncomfortable with the lack of give to the toy.
The feel of the toy is incredibly smooth. The silicone is silky and buttery to the touch and, though it does still collect dust and lint, the drag isn't nearly as bad as most silicone toys. The minor amount of drag is easily eliminated by using a water based lubricant.
This toy isn't without texture, but isn't overwhelming, either. The ribs on this toy are different than most. Rather than being horizontal, the ribs are placed vertically. When inserted, it's difficult to even feel the texture because it's so slight. Unless you're really sensitive to textures, this one shouldn't be a problem.
The firm feel makes this a better toy for someone who's had experience with butt plugs before, since the toy feels quite filling from the lack of give.
There was no obvious smell when the toy first arrived, and after using and cleaning, there's still no smell to the toy.
Juice is made to look like a juicer that you would often use with a lemon or an orange. With the vertical impressions and tapered tip, it's understandable where it gets its name from.
Because of the way this plug is designed, it's very comfortable to insert and keep in place. The tip is the smallest area of the toy, and though it's rounded, is very easily put in place. The middle of the toy widens to provide a full feeling, but tapers again to form the neck of the toy. This area is also smaller, making it easier to handle while inserted. The bottom of the toy isn't rounded like the rest of it. It's shaped like the bottom of a rocking chair leg; curved on the bottom, and longer than the rest of the toy. The base that prevents the toy from accidentally slipping inside of you fits very comfortably between your cheeks, but is a little long if you plan on using it during vaginal sex. This also depends on your anatomy, but is something to keep in mind.
This plug isn't small, but is a good size for advanced beginners to intermediate users. It fits easily in the palm of your hand and can be easily hidden from prying eyes. Though the look of this toy would probably be obvious to someone if they were to see it, it's fine for traveling since the size is so reasonable. It can be stashed in a purse, backpack, suitcase, etc. without taking up too much space.
The Juice butt plug does exactly what it's intended to do. It gives a nicely full feeling without being overwhelming, even to someone who's newer to using anal toys, and is comfortable enough for extended periods of time. The tapered end makes insertion easy, and the thinner neck helps it to stay in place, hands-free.
The length of the base can be uncomfortable during vaginal intercourse, and insertable toys might even catch on it during use. This can be frustrating if you were looking for a plug to wear during this type of play. It won't be an issue for everyone, but it didn't work the way it should with my anatomy.
Since this toy is made from silicone, clean up is very easy! Wash with warm water and anti bacterial soap or your favorite sex toy cleaner. For a more thorough cleaning, it can be boiled up to 3 minutes or put on the top rack of your dishwasher. If you're planning on sharing with another person, always be sure to sterilize before use to prevent the spread of bacteria. Since this material is prone to picking up dust and lint, you should always clean before and after each use.
Silicone is compatible with water based lubricant only, since other types could cause the material to deteriorate, making it unusable. Using a thicker density lube will help it to remain in place during play, making it much easier to insert.
This plug shouldn't be stored directly next to toys of similar materials for the same reason any lubricant other than water based shouldn't be used. Since this toy is smaller in size, it can be stored in the original packaging, in a sandwich bag, or other small storage pouch; as long as it's not directly touching a toy of similar material.
The package this toy comes in isn't discreet, but it is tasteful. The clear plastic package obviously displays the toy and also provides a fair amount of information about the item. The top comes up and you slide out a little tray that's made to fit the toy inside perfectly. The only information that comes with the toy is on the outside of the box.
It's suitable enough to be used as storage, but is minimal enough that it could easily be broken down and recycled. The plastic is thin, but does feel thick enough that it should last a fairly long time when used for storage.
