Rolling Along

In motion, I really enjoyed the P-plug. It made a nice little targeted dildo aiming right for my P-spot and felt great going in and out. As much as I liked using the P-plug as a prostate wand, I have to deduct major stars of the lack of quality control, poor manufacture (seriously, unmolding damage?), and the fact that the base is so badly designed that I got injured.

Ignore the name: use the p-plug as a prostate wand instead.

Use

Names can be very deceiving.

This toy may be named a plug, but just sitting there didn't do too much for me. Instead, the angle and shape really seem to lend themselves better to active stimulation like a normal dildo. Also, ladies, don't be afraid to try this toy. You may not have a prostate, but your G-spot might like the attention this little dildo can bring!

I will give one basic word of warning for people using the P Plug anally: it's bigger than it looks. Here's a picture of it next to a 12 ounce root beer bottle (because real men drink root beer, darnit!) for comparison.

No, that's not a camera angle trick. The head of this dildo is wider than the neck of the bottle. This toy is not beginner friendly. If you are shy about taking a penis, you may want a toy that's smaller than this for anal. Vaginally, however, I don't see it being too hard to warm up to as it's not super long.

Also, you're going to want to use more lube inside you than on the toy if you're going to use the P-plug anally. Remember: lube the hole, not the pole for anal. A baby medicine syringe or nitrile gloves can really make applying lube easier.

Material / Texture

I'm typically a materials snob. If it can't be sterilized 100% by tossing it into a pot of boiling water, I'm not interested. When I saw that Doc Johnson finally saw the light and was switching to safe, clean silicone, I was happy to jump on board.

Material-wise, the silicone used in the P-Plug is decent. It doesn't look or feel too cheap, but it's not as high quality as what Tantus is using. It's very firm. Ever get ahold of some half-frozen meat that you could sort of squish but not quite because it was still hard inside? It feels sort of like that.

There is almost no texture on this dildo. The closest things to intentional texture the P-Plugs has are the large bumps along the shaft and the knobby, rounded head. Past that, the entire toy is shiny-slick except for a little mold mark nub on the very tip and a few little wrinkle-like mold marks along the back of the toy just after the smooth, curved area. It looks like this toy was demolded and finished hastily. If more care had been taken there wouldn't have been any marks at all.

Considering that Doc Johnson is generally an inexpensive to mid range brand, I suppose you get what you pay for: quickly made but decent plugs & dildos for less than artisan makers would charge.

Design / Shape / Size

The P-Plug is a nice intermediate sized plug/dildo thing. It's short enough that women and less than advanced users will have no trouble taking the whole thing, but the head is wide enough to give some serious stimulation and a little challenge for intermediate users.

The curvature is made so that it's easy to insert this dildo and just sit down on it. It's supposed to give a nice popping sensation on anal insertion. From there the dildo is suppose to match the curve of the body with little ripples to help hit your prostate (or g-spot) if the head of the plug is not directly on it. The drastic taper near the base is so the sphincter can clench down and the body can relax more for the ride.

The base is nice and large so there is no risk of this plug getting lost inside. It's also very rigid so it won't fold up or slide during use which should allow the P-plug work well with most O-ring harnesses. It might be fun to use it for pegging or with a special lady for extra g-spot/p-spot stimulation.

Performance

Remember what I said in the design section, then toss it out the window for the most part.

I was surprised by how big the head on this plug really is. It honestly doesn't look too big on the pictures! Luckily, I can handle a penis so this wasn't too frightening. The large bulge made the P-plug pop a little on insertion, just as designed. It was a nice, stimulating feeling to just slide it in and out for a little while.

Once I was ready to go deeper, I found that the large head really was the star of the show. It wasn't hard to get to my prostate. From there I started using a rolling motion on my prostate, sort of like when you use one of those ball-shaped back massagers only in miniature. The firm material plus smooth shape made it easy to give a steady, kneading pressure and I had no trouble building myself up with this toy.

Then I tried just inserting the P-plug and sitting on it. It was not fun. The base was too rigid, the angle didn't work well with my body, and the little bumps did pretty much nothing. After a little while I was getting sore and was happy to remove the P-plug.

Care and Maintenance

This toy is silicone. Just wash it with soap and water then toss it into a pot of boiling water for 20 minutes and your toy is good to go. You could also toss your P-plug into the top rack of a washing machine, but I feel a little weird about putting things that have been up my butt in among my drinking cups so I just make dildo stew instead.

Store silicone far away from any toy materials other than silicone, glass, or steel or there may be melted toys. Don't even reuse toy bags or the same drawers! Silicone only or don't do it. Beyond that, all you need is a clean surface out of direct sunlight and you're good to go. I have a steel box I keep smaller silicone toys in and a paper-lined drawer I use for larger ones. Some of my friends like using fishing tackle boxes instead.

Also, make sure you use water-based lube with silicone toys. Silicone lube adheres to silicone toys which, again, will lead to melted toys over time. I like KY jelly (warning: glycerine) and also enjoy Earthly Body's Water Slide lube (non-glycerine).

Packaging

The P-plug came in a molded plastic case that was easily opened by simply pulling the package open. This means you can always put the toy back into it's case for storage. There was also a colorful paper insert with the toy's name, maker and information on it. The paper didn't show anything sexual, it was just swirling colors and text in assorted different languages. There wasn't much information included, but, again, you get what you pay for.

Due to cheap packaging and less than stellar manufacturing, I'm not sure I'd give this toy as a gift. If you do decide to gift the P-plug, at least wrapping it up or making a little fabric carrying bag would be wise.

Personal comments

Kudos to Doc Johnson for finally getting into silicone. A major thumbs down, however, for not putting as much effort into it as they could have.

Lack of care during making is evident in this toy from the demolding damage and lack of care in checking for mold mark stubs. Quality control didn't even catch it. Lack of care when designing is evident in the base plus the hardness. I have a horror story about that one in the Experience section.

Come on, Doc Johnson. You can do better than this! I have seen and enjoyed your pop plugs so I know you can! This was a little bit of a letdown.
    • Lack of quality control
    • Poor manufacture

Experience

Remember how I said the P-plug was not fun as a plug? Well, there's a good reason why: the base sucks.

First I had trouble getting the rigid base to sit comfortably. Shifting my weight caused the toy to turn sort of like a steering wheel. I know all anal toys with rounded bases can do this, but I felt like I was steering my butt. Although I was amused at first, this quickly wore out it's welcome as the turning felt weird and made the toy point in the wrong direction all at the same time.

Then the real killer came in: the base is too hard and is poorly designed.

Look closely at the root beer picture up top. Notice how the bottom of this toy is perfectly flat. It's like someone literally cut it off! This creates very sudden, sharp corners all along the base of a dildo-plug-thing that likes to turn and doesn't give very well. When flat hard things meet round soft things the round things normally don't fare too well. My butt cheeks became uncomfortable in a hurry! By the time I had removed the P-plug my butt was sore.

After I was done I was pretty sure the soreness in my butt was because of the hard base. When the soreness stayed longer than a couple hours I grabbed a mirror and found that my attempts to get cozy with the base had made the sudden, sharp edges on the base's bottom dig into my flesh, pinching it in the process. I had a small blood blister of all things! I have never had a plug do this to me before.

After that I quickly vowed that the P-plug would only be used in motion. I'd never use it as a plug again.
