Best little big plug around!For its price, the quality of this toy's materials and straightforward design make it a worthy investment for reliable anal pleasure that's well suited for extended wear. There are bigger boys out there, but The Big End is very suitable as a way to work yourself up to more challenging toys. While its girth may not lend itself to being extremely novice-friendly, this toy is a phenomenal addition to any seasoned anal player's toy box, especially if comfort for extended wear is key.
Whether for simply warming up for a few minutes and having it inserted for several hours, this is a fantastic (big) little toy. As one might expect from a toy of this size, working a couple of fingers in and out or using a more slender toy with a good base prior to use will help prepare you for taking the thick end of the bulb with maximum pleasure and minimal discomfort. From my experience: once the toy is in, it stays put until pulled out with a little effort. Extended play sessions and wearing this toy around are absolutely a possibility for the average user.
In my opinion, the firmness of this toy is just about perfect for a plug of its size. The plug is easy enough to insert for anyone at least somewhat experienced in anal play, and is not uncomfortable once inside even when walking about or sitting down / reclining. The material and texture of the toy also retains lube pretty well for extended wear; I've been plugged by this toy for about three hours while relaxing in my house and had no discomfort finally pulling the plug from my ass once I was done.
As for the girth of this toy, my personal scale places it pretty squarely in the "intermediate" range. The widest point measures in at 5.5" circumference, which is a little bit thicker than your average cock. The neck of this toy is considerably thinner than the widest point, measuring 0.75" in diameter in comparison to the girthy 1.75" bulge before the neck. The difference in diameter definitely leaves you feeling filled up and properly 'plugged'.
If you are looking to just get into anal play, I would not recommend this toy unless you are especially daring. I can see the widest point of this toy being potentially painful to those who are too nervous about anal play or not properly prepared for its girth. However, if you are a bit more experienced, I would say this toy is a must-have. Its toy type and shape is a staple in anyone's toy box, and there is ample reason for that.
I had high hopes for a toy I could keep in for hours while I go about my usual business around the house, and The Big End was certainly not one to disappoint. While out of my own preference I would not wear this toy out on the town, I imagine it could easily be used for such if you're a bit more daring than myself. The plug does take a bit of effort to remove, and while not painful, I can't imagine it unintentionally slipping out for most users. The base comfortably nestles between the cheeks and is not noticeable unless one is fully nude. Overall, this toy has performed exceptionally well for me and I imagine I will be using it pretty often from here on out.
As with all of my toys, I store this individually in a large plastic storage box with the lid closed to minimize the amount of unwanted particle buildup on the silicone's surface. I actually use the original packaging sans branding paper to store this toy. I will discuss this in more depth below.
The second thing I noticed was that this packaging was designed to double as a storage place. It was easily opened and can be just as easily re-sealed. Since the packaging's compartment is rather clearly shaped as a butt plug, I cannot think of any alternative usage for it. It may be suitable for gifting especially due to its easy-opening feature, but it is in no way subtle. If you have no use for the packaging, it is fully recyclable for those who wish to do so.
Doc Johnson really rolled out an exceptional plug with their The Big End. I imagine I will be using this for some time to come.
