Slim Yet SatisfyingThe Slim by Doc Johnson is a thin, non-textured dildo that can be used in a variety of ways. The toy can be used vaginally or anally because it has a flared base and it is also harness compatible. I did not think that I'd enjoy this dildo because of the lack of girth and texture but I was surprised to find out that it works amazingly for hard thrusting. The Slim confirms that it really isn't the size of the boat but instead the motion of the ocean that matters.
The back of the packaging states a number of product features and the company contact information. You could use the packaging to store the toy but it’s rather large compared to the size of the toy. You’d save a lot of space if you stored the toy in a storage pouch or similar item. The packaging can be recycled.
The dildo is slim (hence the name) with no texture to it. There is a slight curve to the shaft of the toy. It’s smooth and there are no seam lines. When running the product along my skin, there is a lot of drag. To prevent drag, you can use a water-based lubricant with the toy. The Slim is made of silicone and has a lot of flexibility to it. I can easily flex the toy in half as you can see in the photo below.
I’ve taken a few measurements of the dildo but if you need additional measurements, please let me know and I can get them for you.
Length of shaft (insertable length): 5 ¾ inches
Circumference of shaft: 3 ¼ - 3 ½ inches
Diameter of base: 2 ½ inches
The top of the shaft is slightly larger in circumference than at the bottom of the shaft. The difference is not very noticeable though as it is only ¼ of an inch difference. The toy can be used vaginally and would be an excellent choice for beginners or those who prefer thinner toys with no texture. There is no motor to the toy so the toy does not vibrate. You could use this dildo in conjunction with a bullet vibrator for external stimulation. Since the toy has no motor, it can be used in the bath or shower as well.
There is a flat-bottomed base to the toy, which makes it safe for anal play. The base a little less than ½ an inch tall and it has the company name imprinted on it. The dildo is able to stand upright on it’s own with this base. The Slim is also harness compatible with an O-ring. I don’t own a harness so I am unable to comment on how well it works for this purpose.
If you do not have a harness, you can still use The Slim for couples play. You’ll just have to control the dildo with your hands. My partner and I love couples play and this toy is excellent for that type of play. When my partner uses a toy on me, I often worry that he may thrust it too hard and the material, texture, and/or girth will hurt me. With this dildo, he can be as wild as he wants with it.
I used the toy vaginally and paired it with a bullet for clitoral stimulation. I assume that the curve to the toy would be good for g-spot stimulation but sadly; I have never had a g-spot orgasm. I’m actually starting to think that I don’t have one.
I cleaned the toy before use because the material is a lint and pet hair magnet. I used a water-based lubricant with the toy and insertion was easy. The base works as a great handle when using the toy but you’ll want to make sure your hands are not lubricated when gripping the base because it becomes very slippery.
I’ll be honest; I didn’t expect a whole lot from this toy being so thin with no texture. I am no size queen but most of my toys have more girth to them then this. Also, most of my toys are textured.
With the lack of girth and texture, I was able to thrust the toy fairly hard. When a toy is girthy or has a lot of texture, I can’t really thrust very hard because it can end up being uncomfortable for me. The hard thrusting was extremely satisfying. I was actually really surprised at how much I enjoyed this slim, non-textured dildo. Typically I would not even give a second glance to a toy like this.
The Slim is super easy to care for. I’d recommend cleaning the toy both before and after each use because as I had mentioned, the toy is a magnet for lint and pet hair. The toy can be cleaned with soap and water, a toy spray, or toy wipes. Putting it on the top rack of your dishwasher, wiping the toy with a bleach/water solution, or boiling the toy will sterilize the toy. You should sterilize the toy every time if you plan on sharing or have the toy covered with a condom. Also, if you switch from anal to vaginal penetration, you’ll need to sterilize the toy before switching holes.
Overall, I’m extremely satisfied with The Slim. While I only used the toy for vaginal use, it felt fantastic and was great for hard thrusting. I like that the toy is harness compatible and can be used anally (just in case I experiment with these types of play in the future). It’s easy to care for and it’s silicone. I would absolutely recommend this dildo to others!
