It's a Hat Trick for the Bum!

If you're looking to take the plunge into anal play, these are the perfect introduction. They're safe and easy to use, while providing enough variety to be useful even once you've graduated to larger toys. More experienced users shouldn't scoff either, as these are great for use with glass or metal dildos, or during intercourse.
Published:
Pros:

Use

These silicone plugs are designed for easy anal use, and they deliver. The pink one is also capable of delivering mild sensations if used vaginally, although most users will bore of that quickly due to the lack of length and girth. Remember that toys must be sterilized if switching from anal to vaginal use -- plan your sessions accordingly.

Between the wide flared base, the soft material, the modest size, and the tapered tip, these plugs are perfect for those just beginning to explore anal play, and the variety means everyone should find something useful in the set. They can be worn during intercourse, and due to the soft material, they're safe to use with glass or metal dildos as well.

Also, the base is a rather strong suction cup, which means your least favorite in play can become an amusingly inappropriate mirror decoration or towel hook in your bathroom.

Material / Texture

Silicone is a fantastic sex toy material for a number of reasons. It's one of the safest materials, being free of phthalates and other potentially harmful chemicals, as well as non-porous and easy to sterilize. It's also soft, eliminating concerns about bruising oneself with overenthusiastic play. These particular plugs are flexible and moderately plush -- they have give to them, without squishing flat under pressure.

These plugs have a light matte texture, which hangs onto lube well without creating much drag. You should never use any anal toy without lubrication, as your back door is not self lubricating and the friction could cause discomfort or even injury.

This particular silicone does hang onto odors, but if that's a concern, there are cleaning methods which will eliminate the problem.

Design / Shape / Size

Each of these plugs is a distinctly different shape, but all three are designed to be easy to use. The tapered tips make insertion extremely easy. So does the small size -- these are between three and a half and four inches in length, with the purple being the longest, and the diameters range from finger width beneath the tip to a little over an inch in diameter at the widest point of the black toy. Once in, the stability will almost certainly vary from one individual to the next. Inserting a larger toy vaginally while using one of these plugs might make it more difficult to hold the plug in place -- to be honest I failed to detect a pattern in when the problem arose, but a few firm pushes to the base of the plug during use greatly reduced the issue.

These are perfect for beginners, while the versatility make them a good addition to anyone's collection. I found the pink one to work wonderfully when paired with a metal or glass toy vaginally.

While none of these plugs look realistic or even particularly phallic, anyone familiar with sex toys at all will recognize these plugs as such. For travel, TSA most certainly will know their intended use. Your more naive snoops can be told that these are coat hooks that won't damage the wall, like on that late night infomercial. Just remember to play down their effectiveness at that, lest your naive snoop seek to order their own.

Performance

All three plugs were easy to insert, held onto lube well due to the texture, and varied enough from each other to provide a nice variety in the set. The suctions cups are quite strong, and one held up a heavy bath towel for a good half hour while I showered. The purple one just might find a new purpose in holding up my shower gel so I don't have to balance it precariously on the ledge of the bathtub any more, although it's not discreet enough to leave in there full time.

While I found the plugs only mildly stimulating on their own, both the pink and the black plugs were fantastic when paired with glass and metal dildos that previously were denied the chance for use with a plug, as all of my other plugs are either metal, glass, or way too big for double penetration. Using hard materials in two orifices at once is a bad idea which could lead to bruising, but a plug makes it that much easier to angle a toy into the g-spot, so I snapped up this set to fill that void in my collection, and I'm glad I did.

They don't stay in place as well as my Pure Plug Medium, but that's hardly a fair comparison, given the extreme stability of that particular toy. None of these went flying across the room either, which can't be said for every plug on the market.

For longterm wear, they're not too uncomfortable to wear while sitting in a soft chair, but I don't think they'd be a top choice for wearing out of the house if I did that sort of thing. The width of the base is pretty noticeable when walking.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function

Care and Maintenance

For everyday cleaning, these plugs can be washed in hot soapy water, or with toy cleaner. Since they're meant for anal use, I'd strongly recommend antibacterial soap or antimicrobial toy cleaner, lest they come in contact with other toys during storage. They can also be sterilized with a ten percent bleach solution, in which case rinse them thoroughly before using them again, or by boiling.

To remove unwanted smells, I find coating them in a paste made of baking soda for a couple of hours and then washing them does the trick. I'd caution against scrubbing toys too vigorously with baking soda, as you don't want to scratch up the surface. Just let it sit, and then rinse it away.

For storage, these pure silicone toys can share a bag without any chemical reaction, but they should not be exposed to silicone composites such as TPR, or any jelly toys. Those toys will break down the silicone and ruin the toys. Separator bags, even simple ziplock bags or discarded socks, keep toys safer and cleaner.

Silicone will pick up lint, so make sure you either rinse these before use, or wipe them with a toy cleaner before applying lube.
    • Easy to store

Packaging

These plugs come in a plastic bag with rather bold lettering, so for recycling purposes, you'll need to hide it inside of a food wrapper of some kind. It's not a particularly stylish presentation, so in a romantic gift giving situation, you'll have to get creative, but let's be honest -- if the situation is appropriate for gifting butt plugs, the presentation isn't really a concern.
