My Purple Friend...Not too Bad

This dildo has a great design. The suction cup works great and will stick to almost anything. The material spoiled the whole experience for me though. It was much too sticky, even with lubricant, because it dried up very quickly. Storing it is a hassle too, because it should be stored alone. If you like the material, you will enjoy the toy. I didn't enjoy the material at all.

Use

The Play Things Dong is a dildo that is designed to look realistic...well except for the purple part. I've never seen a purple penis. As you can already tell, I got the purple one. It is made of Pure Skin which is porous. This dildo has a suction cup on the bottom of it so it can be attached to walls, showers, floors, etc. This toy also has testicles at the end, but they are not fully rounded. The back of them are flat, so they are not very lifelike. This is a great toy for couples or singles. Please use a condom when sharing this because it is porous and can hold body fluids.

Material / Texture

This dildo is make of Pure Skin which is a combination of silicone and PVC. It is very sticky, porous, and attracts all kinds of undesirables. It doesn't have any detectable taste or smell to it that I noticed. To me, it doesn't feel very realistic because of the stickiness, but water based lube does take care of that very nicely. When it is lubricated, it feels very realistic for me. It has a lot of give to it and is very flexible, which makes insertion a bit difficult. That's why I recommend lubricant. Only use water based lube with this. Silicone and oil based could damage the toy. This toy is great for beginners, but depending on what you are looking for, could be great for advanced users also.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this toy works very well. The suction cup on the bottom is VERY strong. It stuck to my bathroom wall and stayed for at least 24 hours, and that was through the humidity of two showers. It is shaped just like a circumcised penis and looks very realistic. It even has testicles at the end that aren't fully rounded. They are flat on the back near the suction cup, but that didn't bother me. Since the suction cup is so strong, it held up in the shower. Although, lubricant is still needed because of the stickiness of it. This dildo is safe for anal play too, because of the testicles at the end. The testicles serve as a flared base. You wouldn't have to worry about losing the toy during anal play. But because of the sticky texture, please use a condom and lubricant to remain safe.

This dildo measures 7 inches from end to end. 5 1/4 inches are insertable, and it has a diameter of 1 1/2 inches. So the size is of an average penis. For me, it has a little too much girth, but water based lubricant does help. This toy isn't discreet at all and would not be suitable for travel.

Performance

The sticky texture of this toy was the deal breaker for me. Even with water based lube, which is the only lube that is safe with this material, it does get sticky again because the lube dries up so quick. The porous nature of this material sucks up lube very quickly, which means it must be reapplied a lot. This also is a dust and debris magnet, so keep a toy cleaner or wipe handy.

The suction cup is by far the best feature of this toy. It is very strong and will stick to almost ANYTHING. It stays in my shower a lot and stayed stuck to a wall in my bathroom for at least 24 hours, so yes it is VERY strong. All in all, I didn't really enjoy it because of the sticky texture.
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

Caring for this dildo is pretty easy. It can be cleaned with soap and warm water or a toy cleaner or wipe. Water based lubricant is the only lube that is safe with Pure Skin. Silicone or oil based lubes could damage the material. I would clean this often since it is very porous and can harbor unsafe bacteria. When sharing, because of the porous nature, please always use a condom.

When storing, please store this toy away from other materials. It is very sticky and could damage other materials, so be safe and store it in its own baggy or in the packaging it came in.

**You could also dust it in a corn starch powder when storing to keep it from getting sticky, but still store it separately from other materials to avoid damaging the integrity of the toy's material or other materials.**
    • Easy to clean
    • High maintenance
Follow-up commentary
I actually am starting to like this. I have found that storing this with powder on it helps a lot, it isn't so sticky. I also have been putting more lube on it and it feels much like a real penis, now I can actually use it and enjoy it. My husband enjoys this one too, its his favorite. Overall, it isn't a bad toy once you learn how to care for the material and get it to work well with your body.
