Great Warm Up Toy!For an anal beginner or anal starter this is well worth it's low price. It does not look cheap as the price may guide you to believe and if you're not looking for anything big for your ass play then this is the toy for you!
small in size, easy to use, great for beginners, good head on the toy.
made from PVC, may be a little small
The Anal starter is just that... an anal starter. This is a great toy for those wanting to experiment with anal play. Or for those who love smaller toys in their ass. It is not flared until you get to the base, this means at the base there is a small reduction in size on the shaft before it comes to the actual base of the toy, making this a double use toy, in my opinion. The first use is just as an thrusting or sliding in and out anal starter to open you up for either a larger toy or your lover for back door play. The second use is a simple butt plug. This toy does not vibrate so therefor no batteries are required. This toy is great for solo or partner play.
The anal starter is made of PVC, which holds a safety rating of 2 (eek!), so make sure to clean this toy well and store it properly. PVC does contain Polyvinyl chloride, so if you have sensitivities to this I do not recommend that you try this toy. This toy is seamless so there are no uncomfortable seam lines. When you first open this toy it does have the mild PVC odor which goes away after a few washes and uses. It does not hold onto smells either. As far as this toy being realistic feeling, it doesn't feel like a real penis because of its size but it does get the job done! It is not hard but its not soft: It is realistically firm. I believe this toy would be great from beginners to the most advanced users.
I love the design of the Anal Starter because it's not to pointed at the head or too blunt. It is the perfect shape for easy anal penetration. This toy does look like a penis, just shrunken. It is small and since it is not battery operated, it's perfect for travel. The measurements are 6 1/4" long but only 4 1/2" are insert-able, circumference is 3 1/4" and 1" in diameter and is O ring compatible. The size of this may be too small for some but as the title states, it's a anal starter. The idea of an anal starter is to open you up to bigger toys or your lover's penis.
Overall the performance of this toy is acceptable. If you're using it as plug, it is best that your anus hasn't been "worked" yet or it may slip out. As an anal starter it does good if you're not looking to jump to a huge toy. It's good if you're looking to start yourself out to use a average size toy after. Some people may be satisfied as just using this as an anal dildo and not going to a larger toy rather than a starter.
PVC toys should be cleaned with warm water and antibacterial soap or hand soap (so long as it's antibacterial). The antibacterial is important because, well just think of where its been. You can also use a toy cleaner on the Anal Starter. I am not sure how this toy should be stored so I just store it like most of my toys in its own container or baggy and in my toy chest. Please make sure it (as well as other toys) are dry before you store it, to prevent mold or a musty smell from forming. Waterbased or Silicone lubricants can be used on the Anal Starter.
The package is a simple design. It is a plastic snap close package. I like these type of packages because no knife or scissors are required for opening. I suppose the package can be reused as the storage container since it is a snap close container. There wasn't many instructions on the package because an Anal Starter is pretty self explanatory.
The colors that they come is in green and purple so the color choices are very limited.
In my experience, this is a great little toy. I wish the material was a safer material. The Anal Starter did it's job at opening me up for another toy but not for my lover's penis. After using the second toy, my ass was ready to accept my lover. It could probably stand to be a little larger in circumference, but when we used this as the only to that was going back there it was quit satisfying for me and my lover enjoyed watching it.
Follow-up commentary 5 months after original review
I still love the anal starter. Still not wild about the material but I would buy this one again. I used to hate anal but when I start with this little gem first, I am actually finding anal isn't that bad. This is still at the top of my toy chest and a go-to toy to begin any anal session.
