Does it live up to the hype?

Well, I am not sure the Pure plug can live up to the hype for me personally. I will give it 5 stars on material, design, packaging, and aesthetics, but it just might not be the ideal toy for me or my partner at this time. I like it, but I'm not sure if it is the euphoric feeling I was expecting. If you enjoy butt plugs, look no further though. It is really nice, but I can't say it is my favorite toy yet. Time will tell.
Easy to care for, holds temperature, beautiful sleek/smooth design, sharing possible, well packaged.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


After trying other anal toys during sex and reading the rave reviews about the pure plug, I decided to give this a chance despite my mixed experiences with butt plugs. My current favorite is the Get a grip, which gives me excellent P-spot orgasms during sex. I had high hopes the Pure plug would be similar.

As you will read on all the reviews for the Pure plug by Njoy is great for extended wear, temperature play, sharing, anal conditioning, wearable during sex, and will last a lifetime.

You can use it solo or with a partner. I personally find it most appealing to wear during sex or have my girlfriend wear it during oral or vaginal sex. She is an anal beginner and I will report back on her experience in a few months, as I want to ease her into anal play slowly.

Does it live up to the hype? If you like butt plugs already, definitely. I am still in the exploring stages of anal stimulation, so take my opinions with a grain of salt.

Material / Texture

The pure plug medium is made of solid stainless steel and feels quite heavy, even when already prepared by reading the reviews ahead of purchase. No need to worry about allergies, odors, sharing toys, sterilizing, breakage etc. Stainless steel is highly durable. You can boil it, soak in a 10% bleach solution, wear it in the bath/shower, cleanse with toy cleaners, soap and water, etc. to keep it squeaky clean. The Pure plug will last a lifetime. Just don't use steel wool or something abrasive (but why would you right?).

Being solid steel, it is, of course, waterproof and holds temperature very well. The workmanship is excellent. The bulb is very smooth and anal friendly shape. The handle is tapered and fits snugly and securely between your cheeks when inserted and you don't feel it when walking around or moving (and I was skeptical about that). Personally, I can feel it some when sitting down, but not not too bad unless it is a hard chair without a cushion. It requires minimal lube to insert, but depending on what lube you use, reapplication may be required for extended wear.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

I love the shape and design. It is about 1.25" at it's widest point. I would recommend it for intermediate users. It takes me a few minutes to insert it without warm-up and gives some sensation of fullness, particularly when squeezing the PC and sphincter muscles. It can be inserted with the nose pointing up or down, depending on your preference. I did feel some prostate stimulation when inserting, but only during arousal and not during extended wear, which is something I am still on the fence about.

It is 3 1/4" long with a 2 1/4" insert-able length. The website says it is a pound, but others claim its more like 11oz. Nevertheless, it's not worth splitting hairs over. Suffice it to say it's heavy for its size. I guess the box might have been included in the weight.

It is not discreet or ideal for travel unless you are checking your bag. I'm sure this would blatantly stick out on the X-ray machines at the TSA, especially if you were wearing it at the time!

    • Ergonomic
    • Whimsical / artistic


The Njoy pure plug works as advertised. It inserts fairly easily and even better if you warm up with a smaller toy or finger to help lube your anus first. The weight is really cool and a new sensation to me. It doesn't take long before it heats up to your body temperature too. You can insert it pointing frontwards or backwards. I find it more comfortable to insert facing my rear. You can feel the fullness when you contract your PC muscles. For me, it gives a mild prostate stimulation and it definitely stays put. I can't see any chance of this popping out of me, no matter which position.

I like using this when I am aroused for masturbation, just to wear in the shower or around the house, or during sex. I gave a few runs at longer term wear, but not sure that is for me yet. I think I need to try a new lubricant like Maximus. I used KY jelly and Astroglide natural and with both I feel they dry up and absorb after 45 minutes to an hour and then I feel like the plug is sticking to my rectum, which makes removal slightly painful and very uncomfortable. I recommend using a tried and true anal lube or you might need to reapply during wear.

All in all the Njoy pure is a great plug. It's craftsmanship is 2nd to none. While I enjoy using it, I am not sure it personally lived up to the expectations. That is just my personal experience. It might be the best plug made. I won't dispute that, but I might not be a butt plug aficionado that I was hoping to be. So far in my recent re-exploration of anal play I have not yet found something that lives up to the pleasure that my Get a grip provides for P spot stimulation. I do think I will use the Njoy occasionally though.

If you love butt plugs then by all means you should love the njoy.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

The pure plug can be stored anywhere really, but the beautiful and useful box or a pouch would be best to assure it does not get scratched (just in case you stored it with other metallic objects). Otherwise, it is very easy to care for and sterilize.

Cleaning is a breeze. You can wash it in hot soap and water, boil in water for 3 minutes, or toss it into a 10% bleach solution. You could certainly toss it in the dishwasher as well.

Nothing is safer than stainless steel for sharing. It is nonporous, easily sterilized, and surgical grade. Stainless steel is a 10 on the EF safety scale. If you are looking to spend this much, you probably already are educated about such matters.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The pure plug comes with a beautiful box that is elegant and minimalist in design. It says Njoy on the top side, complete with a satin lined, hollowed out portion for the plug to rest inside. Suitable for sitting on your bedside table even. Most people probably would have no idea what the box was, at least until they opened it and gasped!

By far this is the best packaging I have seen on a sex toy that I have purchased. Considering the price, I'd say that it is justified. I was hesitant to spend so much money on a butt plug.

There is a mini catalog included in the box with photos of other Njoy toys.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Personal comments

This thing is truly a thing of beauty. As shiny and artistic looking as a fine piece of jewelry. The heft is something to behold.

The bar was set high for this toy with about 95% of scores 4-5 stars, and most of those being 5's. I had limited experience with butt plugs prior, the only other being a silicone anal pacifier type. I enjoyed it for sex play, but had a negative experience with extended wear, so I wasn't sure if the Njoy was for me. This is more $ than I would normally spend on a butt toy, but with all those high marks, how could I go wrong? This was also my first foray into steel/metal.

I tend to prefer toys no thicker than 1", but lots of people recommend going a bit bigger to grow into, so this was a minor challenge for me as well. It does take a few min to insert and adjust to it for me and feels good, but not sure extended wear would be my thing. I saved up my EF points to give this one a try or I would probably still be on the fence.

I used astroglide natural the first time, and after about an hour of sitting it became too uncomfortable and felt like I had to have a bowel movement. I think the lube dried up and absorbed, which created or added to the discomfort, because it was a little uneasy to remove. I need more experience with anal specific lubes. I did find it quite comfortable and stimulating for the first 30 minutes. Others say they wear theirs to work, to jog, walk etc., but I am not sure I will be doing that as I find it most fun when I am aroused.
Follow-up commentary
I still like the Pure plug medium, but we don't use it as much as other toys at the moment. I did get my girlfriend to try it and we both enjoyed the sensations of her wearing it during sex and it is visually appealing for me too when she has it inserted. While she enjoyed it as a new experience, she is not particularly enthusiastic about anal play, so it is not something she would insert on her own accord. Hopefully that might change a little in the future.

I have not used it myself very much lately, as I have been enjoying some other prostate related toys and only like anal stimulating during sex and arousal state at this point. I'm not sure I will ever be a long term wearer of plugs, but if you are looking for a plug, there are none better. The pure plug will long outlast us being stainless steel.

I am currently considering the Pfun plug or metal worx luv plug for prostate play.

    Thanks for the review! Try silicone lube with stainless steel - it lasts a very long time and works well with the material.
