Definitely a fun toy!This is a great toy that's a lot of fun to use and feels great. What more can you want? Awesome material at a good price — definitely recommended!
Upon its arrival, it came in a relatively small package and was contained in just a simple plastic bag in a simple box with the namesake Lanny Barby's image on it. Taking it out of the box it was a tad larger than I expected. As other reviews noted, it has a slight sweet odor about it that didn't seem particularly like a "sex toy" scent and was neither offensive nor strong. The UR3 material is very soft and smooth, with just the tiniest bit of tack to it. It's very realistically rendered, as well, being a mold of a real porn star. Sliding a finger into the hole, the ribs of the inside felt promising, and at that point I decided to give it a go.
I put a bit of lube inside the toy and made sure the inside was well coated with a finger in each end (the other end of the toy is open with a small hole as well). That done, and suitably excited, I slid the toy on and was wonderfully surprised. I wish I had spent a little more time trying to warm the toy up a bit before using it the first time, but it felt good enough otherwise that I wasn't about to stop. The ribs felt pretty good, but I'm not sure I would miss them if they weren't present. The toy felt great sliding up and down, and at a pretty average size I had no trouble pushing myself in all the way without popping out the other side until I pushed further. The toy is a nice size to hold onto even when it gets slippery and its weight makes it easier to hold and thrust into. I found I liked holding it steady on a sink counter or some similar-in-height surface which made it easier to thrust into rather than manual slide up and down. Using the toy was a lot louder than I expected. It made a wet sort of ratcheting sound characteristic of ribbed toys, I suppose, when I was thrusting more vigorously. It probably could be heard through a closed door, and maybe even over running water, so that's something to keep in mind if you're trying to be discrete.
At any rate, using this was a great step up from just the hand — it was much more enjoyable and lasted a lot longer, too. I'm already looking forward to using it again! I'm going to try to treat the toy well to extend its longevity, as well — I've heard dusting the toy (inside and out I presume) with cornstarch helps preserve the material. Cleaning it out wasn't too hard, as the ends are both open you can run warm water and soap through it and pulling it open from both ends helps get everything out, and once you're through, dry it, dust it, and let it air out a bit, and you're good to go for next time.
All in all, it was a great experience and I'm definitely going to use this until it wears out!
