I was all set to not like this product because it wasn't made out of silicone, but honestly, I was very pleasantly surprised! It only had a very mild scent, a really awesome, silky surface that begged to be stroked and pet. I sat around just playing around with it in my hands for a while after I received it. It's flexible and squishy, so while it's firm enough that if you tighten your body around it, it doesn't give very much, but is flexible enough that it curves some with your anatomy. It feels fairly realistic, other than the lack of warmth that one would get with a real penis of course. The surface/firmness should be suitable for any user, new or experienced!
Overall, I wasn't super impressed with the design of this toy. The actual penis part of it is great, but the attached ball sack part just doesn't look right. The texturing, dimensions, and shape of it do not look real. Since it is intended for a more realistic look, I think they could have done a lot better with it. However, that's just me being finicky about the aesthetics of the dildo. The usable, insertable portion of it has a lovely design. It has a fairly satisfying girth of 5", as well as a 6-6.5" length. Other than an almost powdery look that the surface has when you first open the packaging, it does appear fairly realistic. Being that it doesn't look artsy or any such thing, it is not at all discreet. Since it is nicely squishy, I would say you could travel with it, so long as you weren't trying to be stealthy about having a fake penis in your luggage.
I think this toy is great for vaginal or anal use. Due to the faux-balls towards the base, there is no danger for using the dong anally at all. Due to the extremely porous nature of cyber skin, condoms should be used if you're going to vary between anal/vaginal, or if you decide to share it with someone. The suction cup on the Player was extremely disappointing to me. I wasn't able to get it to stay in place on a chair, on my headboard, or on tile in the shower.
Cyberskin requires lots of tender loving care. It feels fantastic, but needs thorough cleaning before the first use since it will arrive with a dusting of something powdery to protect it. Wash before and after each use with warm water and mild soap, or with a toy cleaner. It's recommended that once it has been washed when you're finished using it, that it be dusted with a bit of corn starch to keep it in tip top shape. Once all that has been done, I store it in an a clean old sock, to protect it and my other toys. Only use water based lubes with it as well, as any others can mess up the surface, and you wouldn't want that!
The Player Dildo came in a mostly translucent, plastic packaging, with colored images and text. Not even remotely discreet by any means of the word, considering you can see the quasi-realistic toy within. There was rudimentary information on the exterior but nothing detailed to inform the buyer of the special care that the dong needs. I wouldn't really recommend it as a gift or storage box. It's bulky and not ornamental, pretty, or any such thing.
