Dr. Philgood is made from phthalate-free PVC. The material is very soft and flexible. The dildo did have a very strong rubbery odor when first opening the package. After washing several times and allowing Phil to air out, the odor has remained. There is a slight rubber taste to the dildo as well. Along with being very soft and flexible, the material is also tacky: it will attract lint, dust, and pet hair very well. The Prince Albert Piercing jewelry is made from stainless steel. The ring is very hard and ridged; it is also completely removable.
Being that Dr. Philgood is a realistic dong molded from a real-life person, the texture on Dr. Philgood is very realistic. Phil is covered in veins, skin folds, and wrinkles, just like a real penis would be.
The suction-cup base is made from the same material as the rest of the dildo, yet it is perfectly smooth to assist with its suction abilities.
Dr. Philgood is made from an actual cast of Phil Varone's penis. The toy is extremely realistic looking; it is flesh toned with a faintly pink head - even the veins on the shaft of the penis appear blue in color under the skin.
Phil describes himself as being unusually hung, and boy is he right. This thing is massive. The whole toy is 8.5 inches long with an insertable length of 6 inches. It also weighs in at over a pound.
The head of Dr. Philgood starts off being 1.25 inches in diameter at the tip of the glans, and increases to 1.75 inches in diameter around the corona. There is a Prince Albert piercing that goes through the urethral opening and comes out on the shaft of the penis. Phil Varone's member is quite thick: it starts off 2 inches in diameter right under the head and gradually increases to 2.25 inches in diameter at the base of the shaft. Phil's penis appears to be slightly curved downward and to the left.
Along with being hung like a horse, Phil also has himself a very robust pair of balls. The scrotum on the Dr. Philgood dong is 2.5 inches by 3 inches. The balls, along with the shaft, give the toy a 12 inch circumference towards the base. The scrotum looks very realistic, and Phil's right nut appears to be a tad bit larger than the left.
The suction-cup base at the bottom of the toy is 2.75 inches wide.
Dr. Philgood is best suited for those who know they like big, realistic-looking toys. Phil's robust size is ready for either vaginal or anal penetration, and he definitely fills you up. As there is no motor or electrical parts, Dr. Philgood is 100% waterproof and can be used wherever your heart desires.
The piercing can catch on delicate skin, as it is not flexible at all it can become painful during use, but the piercing is removable. If you choose to not remove the piercing jewelry for use, make sure to tighten the balls on the ends as they can become loose during use.
The suction cup on the base of the toy adheres well to smooth tile on the shower wall, or to the bottom of the bathtub for hands-free play.
Being that Dr. Philgood is made from phthalate free PVC, he can be washed with warm water and anti-bacterial soap. You can also use your favorite toy cleaner. When cleaning be extra diligent about washing any residue out of the ridges and folds present on Phil's realistic penis mold. Also, the hole left from the piercing can harbor residue down in it. Feeding the jewelry back and forth through the hole during cleaning will help get the residue out. You can also remove the piercing jewelry from the dildo and clean it separately with either soap and water, boiling, soaking in bleach, or running it through the dishwasher. But those methods are only appropriate for the piercing jewelry and not the whole dildo. Dr. Philgood cannot be fully sanitized, so if you plan on sharing with a partner cover Phil with a condom.
When storing Dr. Philgood away between uses, it is best to keep him protected from lint and dust, as Phil is a lint magnet.
Phthalate free PVC is compatible with both water-based and silicone-based lubricants.
Sticking with the whole rock star theme, the box that Dr. Philgood comes packed in is stylized after the cases the roadies pack all the stage gear in for touring. It is black in color with silver trim along all the edges. There is a picture of the cock on both the front and the back; on the front is also a picture of Phil Varone. Inside of the box the dildo sits inside of a plastic bag.
Normally I'm not a fan of realistic looking toys, but the piercing on Dr. Philgood had me very intrigued. I am a fan of texture and wondered how the hard steel of the jewelry, combined with the soft flesh like feel of the dildo, would feel during use. Unfortunately I found that the piercing was just too painful to use with the jewelry inserted into the cock. My partner can rest assured that I will not be requesting he make any modifications below the waist.
Dr. Philgood is also very large, larger than any of my other toys, and I was unable to insert it all the way even after lots of warm up. Phil Varone might have pleasured thousands of women, but for me, he's a bit too hung for my taste. The toy is still very nice, so I won't knock off stars for its too-big-for-my-likes-size; if realistic is what you are looking for this toy is right on the money. If you like girthy toys, Phil's perfect for you. Really the only thing I am taking a star away for is the strong odor of the toy.
