Anal Starter

I think that this toy is great. I am starting to reintroduce myself to anal sex, and this toy is small and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this toy to anyone who is wanting to try anal exploration, but doesn't want to spend a lot of money on something before they find out if it is something that they will like.
great size for beginners to anal sex

made of pvc

useful review


This Anal Starter by Doc Jaohnson is a beginner anal tool. You can also use this product vaginally if you choose to. This would be great for beginners because it is extremely slim. Advanced users may like this product as a warm up toy.

Material / Texture

The toy is made out of PVC which rates a 2 on the EF material safety scale. This is a realistic dildo. The product is smooth on one side, and veined on the other just under the head. This anal starter does have some safety features: it has antibacterial properties and is latex and phthalates free. In my personal opinion this toy would be best for beginners, but some advanced users may like this as a warm up toy. The material is very squishy and flexible. This toy has a horrible rubber smell, which does fade slightly once it is exposed to air outside of the box. It does have a slight taste to it that is similar to the taste of a condom. This product if very porous, so if you plan on sharing, it is highly recommended that you put a condom on this toy.

    • Harness compatible

Design / Shape / Size

This toy is 6 1/4 inches and has an insertable length of 4 1/2 inches. It has a circumference of 3 1/4 inches and a diameter of 1 inch. It weighs a mere 5.5 oz. This toy can be used by itself or it can be worn in an o-ring compatible harness. The dildo has a slim angled head that tapers out slightly until it gets to the flared base. The flared base can be used as a suction cup. This toy is a good size to travel with. You could actually put it into a pair of socks inside of your bag and never know that it was there.

The size of this toy is amazing, especially for beginners. The base can double as a suction cup. The suction cup is rather small, and you may find that you have a hard time keeping it stuck. It is easier for it to stay in place when stuck to the floor rather than stuck to a wall of some sort. I don't think that anyone would find this toy pleasing when inserted into the vagina. It literally feels like one finger is inside of you.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

This toy cannot be sterilized at all. The only way you can clean it is by using soap and water or a toy cleaner. Storing this toy is a little more difficult than most, due to the material. I store toys made out of this material, or something similar to it, in a Ziploc bag. I do this because for some reason, this type of material attacks anything and everything that is floating around in the air. It is recommended that you use only water based or silicone lube with this product. If you use any other type of lube you risk damaging the product.
