This toy is made of Sensafirm rubber. This material is highly porous, so you can not sterilize it. It has a strong rubber smell out of the box and a rubbery taste as well. The smell has faded a bit after some washing and airing out, but it is still there. I would recommend using condoms on this if you are sharing or if you want to use it anally. Other than that, the material feels great and feels like a real dick. A ROCK hard dick, but a real dick nonetheless. It is really firm, but not so much that you are going to hurt yourself easily.
As for the texture, it is smooth except for the pronounced head. The material may cause some friction though, so you may want use lube to avoid getting irritated.
I was so excited when this came in the mail. Upon taking it out of the box, my mouth dropped open at the sight of it. It was more beautiful than I had imagined it to be, but so... HUGE! I was a bit intimidated. I had to remind myself that a good portion of the total length would not be inserted. At 8 inches long, two of those inches are made up of the balls and base. This baby looked thick as hell though! I had never had anything wider that and inch and a half, and this one was almost two inches! I would say if you are a total beginner, this width may take some getting used to. I recommend relaxing, going slowly and using a really good lube.
Jeremy pleased me in ways I didn't think possible for something that didn't vibrate. Once I got used to him, I enjoyed the fullness he gave me and the slight curve was able to hit my g spot. I still have yet to squirt, but I am practicing. I think I may need a more extreme curve and something more firm, but this definitely hit the spot and messaged it quite nicely.
Taking care of this toy is easy, though it can not be sterilized, so you have to be cautious. If you are worried at all about the material safety, you should use condoms with this. Other than that, you can use any toy cleaner or wash it with warm water and liquid antibacterial soap. I pat it dry and leave it out for awhile before putting it up. I don't know much about rubber, but a friend of mine has told me when in doubt, just put it in it's own plastic bag for storage so you don't mess up your other toys. This is great advice, but this sucker is quite big and awkward and sticky. To even be able to put it in a gallon Ziploc, I had to dust it with cornstarch. I only use water based lube because I am so new to toys and don't want to take the chance of ruining any of them with silicone. The product material page says only to use water based, but you may be able to use silicone if you use a condom and are very careful not to get it on the balls.
