Classic butt plug royal by Doc Johnson - review by CrepuscularKitten

Delicious boy toy

This toy is an amazing anal toy. Not only can you use it to stretch your ass, so that in the end you can take bigger things, but it makes a nicely filling plug as well. The way it presses against your prostate when you press it in makes it all worth it. It has a nice handle, so that you can pound your ass as your stroke yourself to a wicked orgasm. It's definitely not for beginners, but those of you who are looking probably aren't beginners anyways, right? Definitely a good purchase!
Great for stretching

extremely useful review


I originally bought this toy with the thought of using the taper on it for a little bit of stretching. I had not been into anal toys in a while, and so I wanted something that would help slowly get me up to taking bigger toys. This toy definitely helped me achieve that goal! Used as a tapering toy, it's overall pretty friendly.

I found the best way to insert the toy was to squat over it. It gives you full control as you press your hips down, and riding it feels really nice. When fully inserted, it gives a very nice full feeling, but not painful. It presses nicely against your prostate, and when pressing in and out it strokes it greatly. In fact, it's harder to pull out than to get in. Overall, it's excellent as a plug.

I also like the versatility of the plug. I got to use it on my wife, vaginally, (With a condom on, of course! It's always a good idea to use a condom when changing from orifices) and she enjoyed it. Though it was just a tiny bit too big, so, we were not able to fully insert it in her, yet.

Material / Texture

I had heard a lot of flack about the smell of the toy, but it honestly just smelled like your typical rubber toy to me. I've had toys that smelled awful, and this wasn't one of them. It wasn't exactly a great smell, but nothing that would put me off. I haven't tasted it!

It seems to be a soft rubber. The toy's description states the same, just "rubber". Upon further examination though, it's more like a rubber sheath around a much softer, gel like rubber. When you squeeze down, there's a fair amount of give. I'd say about the amount of give of a tennis ball, if it were filled with a nice soft medical grade rubber/silicone.

The texture is definitely user friendly and good for beginners. It cleans very well, needing only soap and water. The toy is moderately flexible, but the toy also has enough rigidity to make it easy for anal use. The toy seems waterproof and is porous.

The only thing about the texture that threw me off was that the outside wasn't as smooth as it could have been. It might have been a machine flaw, but there are small series of sand like bumps on the outside of the rubber in certain places. I can feel them, even when I insert it in myself (at least when it gets to the larger part of the toy). While not exactly pleasant, it doesn't take away from the overall purpose or pleasure that the toy provides.

Design / Shape / Size

I really enjoyed the overall design of the toy. It's tapered nicely, and does not get too wide too fast. The shape matches perfectly with what you would need for anal insertion. It starts out very small, so even a beginner could use it up to a point. The overall size of the toy is moderate, not too large. Now, let me step back a minute and say that differently. It's not too big for 'me', and probably not for people with at least some experience. However, this is definitely not a beginner's toy! This toy is bigger than my wrist, easily at the widest point.

The tip slowly tapers up to 3 and 1/2 inches halfway down the bulb. That's about 2 inches down the toy, from there, it widens out until it reaches the widest point of the toy, a thick 7 and 1/2 inches. This is about 4 inches down on the toy. The last inch or so of the toy is considerably smaller, only about 3 inches around or so. So after your ass takes in that large bulb, it has a nice base to grip and thrust if you want to manipulate it. It is also tapered on the bottom, so that you can pull it out. However, it is less tapered on the bottom, so it's typically harder to pull out than press in.

I recommend lots of time and patience with taking this toy. Even if you can take it easily, don't go too fast unless you have lots of experience. If you give it time, you'll enjoy every second of it.

When using it on my wife, the only problem is that it widens to the point where it hurts her bone as it presses it. I'm sure this is a fairly normal issue with smaller women, but if you could overcome that it would make a nice toy for a lady as well.
    • Ergonomic
    • Partner play


The best part of the toy is definitely the easy to use tapered design. It slides in easily, with a slow build-up to the thickest point. The bottom has a base that's good for a flat surface, which is also really nice for riding.

I had no issues with the design of the toy personally, except for the flaws in the outside texture of the toy. It had those little sandy nubs from time to time, which I'm sure were just a defect.

The toy is also a little large, so this isn't a toy for someone who has no experience at all. However, even a little bit of experience would allow you to at least use the toy for a nice stretching experience!

Care and Maintenance

This toy is extremely easy to clean. Soap and water are all you need to leave it squeaky clean! Well, and a towel to dry it, of course. I would recommend water and silicone based lubes, though I would avoid oil based. I've seen no warnings against using oil based with it; however, I know that they aren't compatible.

Even though the cleaning is easy, rubber is somewhat porous. This being said, clean it thoroughly.

I've personally found the original case is excellent for storing the toy. It's one of the plastic cases that is easy to open and close, and is a nice place to keep the toy separate from other toys, and prevent it from rolling out into the living room when guests are around.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The toy was packaged very simply. It was in a typical, flat, plastic case, with a bulge in the middle that was the shape of the butt plug to hold it in place. It was easy to open, and could be re-used. There was basic information about the toy on paper on the inside of the plastic, but no interesting pictures.

Overall, pretty dull packaging, but you don't mind that, right? Right!

Also, it's plastic, so you could recycle it if you wanted.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

I very much enjoyed the toy. It's a decent toy for intermediate users, if you are willing to put a little work and want to get up to something bigger. I wouldn't give it someone who has never even thought of his or her ass as a sexual organ, that would be a disaster. However, if you're up for the challenge, this is a wonderful toy to own.

I was very excited when I got the toy, and immediately set out for my plans. When I first tried to fit this toy into my ass, I had just gotten through with a thorough 'cleaning'. Anyone who's familiar with anal knows exactly what I'm talking about. So, my insides were as clean as they could get, spotless even! I didn't use lube at first, because I'm a little sensitive to it. I just used a little spit, and slid the tip in. I could not even get halfway down, so I had to resort to lube in the end. It was much bigger than I had anticipated.

Now, I'm not a large person. I have a rather small frame. Like a 130 something pound small frame. For a male, I'm not large. I have a 24-inch waist. So that being said, this toy to me is enormous. I whipped out the H20 anal lubricant, and gave my backside and the toy a liberal coating before going to work. It slid in nicely, and about halfway down started giving thick. I gave it a minute, pressed it out, then back in a little deeper. This is how I worked at it, just bouncing down until it felt thick, giving it a second, then back up and back down, riding it slowly until I got to the thicker part. At about 6 inches, 3 and 1/2 inches down the toy or so, it got huge. In fact, it downright hurt! But, I pressed down, back up, back down, and hit a brick wall. I could not get beyond it.

Finally, I had to bite the bullet. Was I going to give up? I thought about it and then determinedly decided against it. I pressed down, and kept pressing down. I felt like I was nearly ready to tear, it was at the thickest point. I bit my lip, and pressed it up with my fingertips as I pressed down. It felt so thick, and I didn't think it was moving at all, then I felt a sudden full feeling in my ass, and a relieving feeling. I took the plug!

I think that's probably my favorite part of taking something large, especially something that gets large, then smaller. It gets to the point where it feels like it's just too much, then suddenly, there's this relief, and release. It feels wonderful.

At that point, I decided to slide it out, slowly press it back in, then give it a rest. It was huge, and I didn't want it to get stuck (it wouldn't, but it was my first time, and I was a little nervous).

I gave it a second shot about a week later, with much easier results. I barely hit the wall the second time, I just bounced up and down until I got to the thickest point, and pressed it in and out. It popped in nicely, and made me shudder a little. I stroked myself as I tugged down on the toy, and the pressure against my P-Spot was wonderful. As I got close to orgasm, I pulled the toy out, and pressed it in and out of myself as my ass clenched. I came, and pressed the toy in deep. Anyone who's ever done anal knows how it makes you feel. Your whole body clenches as you cum, and I could feel my prostate pulsing against the toy as I came.

All in all, for me it was a great experience!

My wife also used the toy, mostly from my begging. It was enjoyable to watch her, and she almost took the whole thing. She enjoys the way it feels in vagina, but hasn't yet taken it in her ass. We can't get it all the way in yet, but we're hoping to in the future! She likes the way it tapers, but it may be just a tad bit too long, rather than thick. According to her, it begins to touch against her cervix when she presses it in too deep.

So for her, not the best experience, but it was definitely enjoyable to watch her.
Follow-up commentary
When I first received the item, it was a little larger than I anticipated. I still overall liked the design of the toy. Since then, it has gotten easier to insert. Because of this, I like it even more than when I first started out. It's still a challenge to insert, but once it's in it feels great! The easier insertion definitely makes the toy more enjoyable, and that has come naturally with experience.

    With the porous material, it would be best to use condoms if sharing with other people or between orifices. Wouldn't want to cause any one a nasty infection. Your experience section is very detailed which is very useful. Thanks for the great review.

    Thanks for mentioning that Jimbo! I forgot to mention that. It's definitely a good idea to use condoms when going between orifices. And you are welcome JustLikeHeaven.
