Pretty Plain Prostate PalI have very mixed feelings about Bob. It feels good going in and out, is a great size, and has a sleek design - but it also has safety and hygiene concerns, and is a bit too long for me. But then again, I'm not its demographic - I'm female-bodied.
Great width for beginners
Unhygienic embossed logos
Potentially unsafe base
Because it has a diameter of only 1 1/4", this plug is best suited to people who haven't explored anal play much or at all, or who simply prefer slimmer toys in their butt.
This particular formulation of silicone smells a little rubbery; I've found that this scent lessens with every wash.
The body of the plug has no give at all, which makes insertion easier, whereas the neck and ring-shaped handle have a bit of squish/give to them.
The entire plug is smooth and matte. It has a bit of drag, like all silicone, so it's important to use a good amount of water-based lube with this toy.
The Bob has an insertable length of 3 1/2", which I find sometimes feels too long, especially given how firm the body of the plug is. It seems that my butt can only comfortably handle firm toys if their insertable length is less than 3", because after that point, the toy tends to poke into my rectal wall a little bit (or a lot). The Bob is still pretty comfortable overall, but the length is the factor which is most likely to be an issue for me when I wear it, especially when I wear it for a long time.
The ring-shaped handle of this plug seems to be big enough to be safe, but it is pretty squishy, so I'd advise you to keep a tight grip on it so you don't lose it inside you.
Lelo have made a serious design error in placing engraved "LELO" logos on either side of the plug's neck. These are an awful trap for lube and bacteria, and are very hard to clean.
I find that the Bob starts to get uncomfortable after about half an hour or an hour, if I'm just wearing it as a stationary plug. It seems to be intended more for sliding in and out, perhaps during a blowjob or handjob.
I was hoping that the Bob would be able to indirectly stimulate my G-spot through my vaginal wall, but it's so slim that it doesn't achieve this. It still feels good in my ass, though.
Also like all silicone toys, the Bob should not be paired with silicone-based lube. I've been using Sliquid Sassy Booty, a thick water-based lube designed for anal play, and it works great with this plug.
The Bob comes with its own sleek satin storage case, which is great for keeping it away from lint when you're not using it.
