This butt plug is made of pure grade hypo allergenic silicone. Although quite sturdy, it's actually very flexible to fit your body without hurting. It's nonporous and very smooth and velvety to the touch, just like most silicone toys. Most people prefer investing in silicone anal toys as it definitely is one of the safer options when it comes to anal play, due to how nonporous and how flexible it can be.
Upon opening the box, there was a slight odor to the plug which was not necessarily a bad one, but might bother some people. I found that the scent naturally faded once I removed it from the packaging after a few minutes of being aired out.
The plug is a purplish pink color and very soft and velvety to the touch. It has a circumference of 4 inches and it's 4 1/2 inches in diameter around the broadest part of the plug. It's one of the longer plugs measuring 4 1/2 inches in insertable length and 5 inches from the base of the plug to the very tip.
I've noticed that there are some toys that have some seams or ridges that can be a bit of a problem when using a plug and can also be a potential danger when inserted and this toy is not one of them. I was actually pretty impressed for the quality and craftsmanship of the plug. It does have a very lightly visible seam, but it cannot be felt once inside. Actually, it's quite difficult to feel with your fingers. The size increase is very gradual and the length makes the increasing diameter very comfortable for insertion unlike the smaller plugs in length.
The 'stem' for lack of a better word of the plug is quite long compared to other plugs I own and is also insertable with no problem. It is very thin and comfortable, something that I was surprised with as I was expecting discomfort do to the length and change in size so quickly. The seam which I mentioned earlier, is the most visible and pronounced at this part of the plug, but it is still not an issue and not uncomfortable or dangerous in any which way.
Something I liked a lot about the plug was the shape of the base which is unlike any other plug I own [and I own quite a few of them]. It's what I like to call an anchor base because it reminds me of an anchor or perhaps even a crescent moon. It's very comfortable to use whether sitting, standing or lying down. The little anchor base accommodates to fit your body and stays in place without popping inside you or popping out.
This plug was a breeze to use and felt very comfortable once inside correctly. Due to the flexibility of the material, it molds to accommodate your body. The length and gradually gaining diameter also help for comfort when it comes to someone who isn't as experienced in anal play. Both my submissive and I are quite experienced and we both felt that this would be a wonderful plug with not much of a learning curve to jump from beginner to intermediate.
This is a silicone plug so it's a breeze to take care of. You MUST clean your plugs after each use but it can be done in virtually any which way you want. It is safe to use hot or cold water and any kind of antibacterial soap with this. The plug can also be boiled in hot water without causing damage and is even dishwasher safe although I'm not a fan of the thought of mixing my sex toys with my dishwasher and plates.
Since this is a silicone toy, it is crucial to keep in mind that you CANNOT use silicone lube with this or you will ruin it. I had to learn this the hard way with my first ever silicone toy back in the day. So just keep that in mind.
This toy is relatively easy to store due to its size. I like to keep all my toys in a small suitcase with individual cloth baggie protectors which can be found a dollar stores for a dollar a piece. This can also be tossed in your underwear drawer for quick access.
The packaging on this butt plug is in no way discreet, but it sure is pretty if you like colorful things. It comes in a black cardboard box with a see through front in which you can clearly see the pink butt plug. It says "Mood naughty" on the front top and "silicone" on the front bottom of the box.
The back has colorful little dots outlining the material of the toy, the maintenance, the texture, the features and what kind of lube you can and can't use. It also includes the links to Doc Johnson brands twitter, facebook and myspace. You can also apparently register this product and read warranty information at Docjohnson.com
Inside the black cardboard box there is a clear plastic layer in which the silicone plug is encased in and it can pop right out unlike other toys which are a hassle to remove from packaging. The plastic is quite sharp though so you should be careful upon pulling it out.
