Great beginner dildo!

This is a great silicone dildo for beginners to anal or penetration and it's very harness compatible. Its small size can be a pro or a con depending on your preferences and experiences.

Use

The best way to use this toy is for strap-on sex. It can be used vaginally or anally because it has a large flared base; it's great to fit into a harness or great to hold on to while using without a harness! This is a smaller sized and extremely smooth dildo, which I think makes it best for anal penetration (especially for beginners). If you prefer smaller dildos for vaginal penetration this may be your toy but I found it too small to get much out of it.

Material / Texture

This toy is made from an ultra-smooth silicone material. There are no visible seams, no strong smell (a very slight plasticky smell if you hold it up to your nose) and no bumps or flared spots along the shaft. The shaft is ever so slightly curved. The smooth texture is definitely part of the experience. If you prefer more texture in your dildos then this definitely isn't for you. I think that the smooth texture is definitely good for beginners, especially for anal. The smooth texture won't overwhelm first timers.

This toy is very flexible which I find to be occasionally frustrating. When penetrating my partner, it will sometimes bend instead of insert when I pull out too far.

The dildo is made from silicone which is the safest, non-porous material. This is a definite plus. This means that when switching between partners or between anal/vaginal use, I can boil it for a few minutes and have it completely sanitized.

Design / Shape / Size

The shape and size of this toy were great. It's a very manageable size for first time anal users which is what my partner and I were using it for. However, it's not great for vaginal use. It's just a little bit too small and thin for me. If you prefer larger dildos then this probably won't satisfy you. Overall, the shape and size of this toy worked well for us. The main problem I had with this toy was the flexibility. It made penetration a little tricky at times.

The design of this toy is very minimal. This toy does not have a realistic look. However, there's no fooling anyone that it's definitely a dildo! If you don't want others to know you have sex toys then I wouldn't keep this guy out in the open. In addition, because of the size of this toy, it would probably be very easy to travel with.

Performance

Like I mentioned earlier, this toy is definitely best suited for anal play with a harness. It has a nice flared base that's great for fitting under an O-ring and its small manageable size was great for first-time anal penetration. However, the flexibility of the toy was super annoying at times. Occasionally when I was thrusting "in" it would bend, causing mild discomfort for my partner.

Care and Maintenance

This toy is super easy to take care of. It is silicone which means that it is super easy to clean and sanitize (simply boil it in water for a few minutes), and it's super durable. I store this dildo in the plastic packaging that it came in because of another less awesome feature of silicone: it picks up lint like no other! If I left it without some sort of package around it, it would be caked with tiny hairs and other fibers.

Because this toy is silicone, also make sure to never use silicone lube! It will break down the material and totally ruin your dildo.

The packaging says "100% silicone".
Follow-up commentary
Still experiencing the same issues I was before--I wish it were firmer! Other than that, I am still getting a lot of fun out of this toy. I would still recommend it.
