The Jack Rabbit is a jelly material, so please, if you plan on using this, make sure you use the proper protection. There is a faint smell that seems to linger after washing. The texture, however, does add some extra stimulation, allowing your experience to be a bit more pleasurable. As stated before, I would not recommend this toy for beginners because of the size. However, if the texture were on a smaller toy and you were looking to take a little step into the textured, this would be a good start.
