Whether Warming Up or Just Beginning, This Plug is For You!

All in all, this toy is ideal for those just getting into anal action. I've found it to have staying power for warming-up, though as users become more "anally advanced", they may not wish to use this toy by itself, but as a first step towards using a larger toy. Regardless of usage, this plug is smooth, easy to use, and not at all painful.

Use

This toy is a great plug for those who are just beginning anal exploration. The small tip and gentle tapering allows for comfortable insertion, and the smooth TRP Silicone surface works well with water-based lubricant for ease of use. This plug is great for warming up for larger toys.

This toy is made of TPR Silicone, which is safer than many materials, but not as safe as pure silicone. The material is slightly porous, and is not able to be sterilized. Remember that you're placing this into your butt, so bacteria will be present! It should be cleaned with warm water and soap or antibacterial toy cleaner. If shared, condoms should be used.

Material / Texture

The first thing you'll notice about this material is how smooth it is, especially when combined with a water-based lube (as this toy contains silicone, silicone lube is not recommended- the TPR Silicone mix also contains rubber, so oil based lube is also not recommended). There is a mild smell, as with all new toys, but this fades with usage of a mild soap and water. There's not much give in this plug, but it's not needed much due to the size, shape, and lack of texture.
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The plug gets the "Crystal Cote" name from its design- a tiny red (or black) plug is encased by clear silicone. This gives a unique and attractive design, but does not have any effect on function. The bottom of the plug is wide with a strong suction cup, making this toy ideal for hands free use on any smooth surface such as a smooth floor, toilet seat, shower wall, etc. The small size and slight tapering may not make this plug satisfying for long-term wear for slightly more advanced users, by these characteristics will make the toy ideal for beginners. This plug is advertised as harness compatible, but with only three insertable inches outside of a harness, you may have trouble using a traditional harness. Using a palm harness or thigh harness may result in more success. However, the suction feature may trivialize the need for a harness, anyway.

Performance

This toy is ideal for someone new to anal play. With a bit of lube, it is easy to insert, and with a small enough taper to avoid the greater "learning curve" of larger toys, which tend to feature a wide hump that may be difficult or painful for anal newcomers. The only drawback I'd suggest is that more advanced users may want to skip it in favor of their larger and more textured toys.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

This plug is made with a TPR silicone material. It should be cleaned with soap and hot water (or antibacterial toy cleaner) after each use, air dried, and stored in the original plastic packaging. Water-based lube is recommended, as silicone and oil-based lubes may cause damage.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

This plug is packaged in a small clamshell-style plastic package, with an insert featuring the requisite porn actress. No instructions are included, nor are they necessarily needed. The package is able to be closed easily after opening, and can be used as storage for the toy after drying.
    • Good for storage

Experience

When I first started exploring my interest in anal/prostate play, I wanted to do so with the utmost care. I has fears that a plug or other toy that was too large would cause pain, injury, or even worse, become stuck! (What can I say? I have an active imagination). When I looked at toys, I was very intimidated, until I found this little guy. Ignoring the packaging (the requisite porn star who seems to be suggesting that if I put this plug in my butt, I could get her) and paying attention instead to the small size, gentle flare, and safe TPR silicone material, I purchased this inexpensive toy. And I'm glad I did!

After prepping the plug (and my butt) with water-based lube, I found it easy to insert, and gentle to continue to do so. It didn't take long to insert the full length. I found the best way to keep it in was to sit down on the plug, or to use the handy suction cup on a smooth surface such as a shower wall. Alternatively, this toy is smooth and allows for ease in working the toy in and out.

As my collection has grown, I still find myself going back to this plug. Knowing the importance of warming up, this is usually a great toy for getting ready for any sort of anal play. The small size is comfortable, but enough to get you relaxed.
