The Classic plug is made from 100% silicone. Silicone is one of the safest materials in the market of sex toys and rates a 10/10 on the Eden safety scale. This material is non-porous, hypoallergenic, latex and pththalate-free. People with sensitivities to other materials such as latex, PVC, or TPR will find that this toy is a safe alternative for them to use. This particular plug has no taste. It does have a smell directly out of the packaging (new manufacturing scent), but you cannot smell it unless it is directly placed under the nose, and the scent will dissipate between washing and using.
There aren't any textures on this plug, and it is completely smooth for easy insertion. Along the middle of the plug there is a light seam, but this cannot be felt during use. There is a lot of drag to the silicone, and it is a lint and hair magnet, so use of a water-based lubricant is required. This plug is not plushy, but it is flexible, and because it is not realistically shaped will not feel realistic in use.
The design of this plug is simplistic and the perfect size for beginners. It is shaped in the style plugs usually come in, and looks sort of like a rocket or a chess piece. This tapered shape allows the plug to be easily inserted when lubricated. The circular base is rounded off so that the plug doesn't become lost, and it has a suction cup if the user requires it. This plug is non-intimidating, and beginners shouldn't have a problem with the smaller insertion size. The tip of this plug is also rounded for easier, more comfortable insertion when lubricated.
Overall length: 4-1/2"
Insertable length: 4"
Smallest circumference: 2"
Widest circumference: 3-1/2"
Due to its small size, this plug is easily hidden in your handbag or luggage and can easily be transported back and forth worry-free of anyone finding it easily. However, if left out in the open, one could easily identify what this is used for, so do take some caution, and be mindful of who sees it.
This toy is super easy to insert and feels comfortable once inserted. Its tapered shaft feels nice gliding in when slathered in a generous helping of water-based lubricant and stays put once in. There weren't any signs of slipping out during prolonged wear of the plug, and at no time does the plug feel uncomfortable when in a seated position. The circular base did not get in the way, and it did not leave any signs that it was there on the outside of clothing.
The toy does have a suction cup base, and it holds firm when placed on a flat surface without texture, i.e. a table, or chair. If you're wanting to grind on this toy, the suction cup will hold its own once placed, and can only be removed by lifting an edge up to get air inside of the vacuum. When suctioned on a surface, the toy was a bit harder to get positioned onto, as the neck before the base is quite flexible, and it takes some maneuvering.
Silicone is easy to maintain. You can pop it in the top rack of the dishwasher without detergent, boil it for up to 5 minutes in a pot on top of the stove, wash it with hot, soapy water in a mild soap, spray it and wipe it down with toy cleaner and wipes, or even bleach it with a 10% bleach, 90% water solution. Because of the material being 'non-porous', bacteria cannot latch on and leech into the surface, leaving you without worry of your toy ever retaining bacteria as long as it is cleaned properly. If boiling, do not allow the toy to touch the sides or the bottom of the pan, as it could potentially result in melting a part of the toy. If your toys have crevices or veins, use an old toothbrush or other small soft-bristled brush you no longer need to clean them, making sure to get all of the leftover fluids and lubricant from the material.
If your anal toys retain a smell, boiling or bleaching should normally do the trick, but in the case of those tough odors that won't leave, make up a small potpourri bag of real vanilla and coffee beans and place it in with your anal toys. It will keep them smelling fresh, and it won't harm your body. If you think it would help, you can also use a douche to clean yourself with, but do not overdo it, as overuse can result in problems. When you're finished playing, always remember to keep your toys separate from each other. Silicone toys can be stored together, but always remember to store them away from materials such as TPR, Jelly, Rubber, or PVC. These materials can cause silicone to melt, disfigure, or even retain other toy colors. If you're questioning the grade of silicone your toy is, simply store it in a Ziploc bag, or in the package it came in, away from your other toys.
This toy is compatible with water-based lubricants only.
The Classic came in clam-shell packaging, packed inside of a brown, unmarked cardboard box. There weren't details about the contents of the package when it got to the door. There were no indicating marks that there was a toy inside. Once the box was opened, the clam-shell packaging was nestled between two air-pillow packs and the receipt for the order was inside as well. The packaging the toy was housed in was in no way discreet, and the toy could be clearly seen sitting inside. The packaging says "Ass-Jacker" in big white lettering, and it also clearly says butt plug.
If you're wanting to gift this to someone, it's suggested to get a nice gift bag, or wrapping this package and pre-warning the recipient of what is inside of their gift beforehand if they're embarrassed by such things. Overall the packaging is very minimal, but also informative, complete with the dimensions of the toy (length wise) and how to remove the suction cup easier. You can store your toy in this packaging or toss it into the recycling.
