Gumdrops double bubble - sex toy by Doc Johnson - review by miked4d69

Good For A Middle of The Road Step

The bottom line is that this toy did not work for me. It is not worth the money. Until they come out with a better design with the base and material, it’s a no go.

But again I am a little more experienced, and that could have been why the base did not stay in place. And the base not staying in place, could also be why the base started to tear after such a short amount of time. Who knows. You be the judge!
Great Idea.
Great design.
Smooth texture.
Good for the middle of the Road.
Material not the greatest.
Base is VERY flimsy.
Small cracks and tears appear after little use.

useful review


The thing I enjoyed the most with this plug was how smooth it was. It went right in without too much resistance. The shape is GREAT! But I'm still waiting on a thicker version. Not too much smell since it’s PVC. But if you’re going to be sharing this toy, a condom is a must!

Although this toy is not for a beginner, I would have to say it’s not for the advanced either. I have done much anal play in my years. And I'd have to say it went right in, and I mean RIGHT in, base and all. It started great, but with any squeezing, it wanted to disappear. Now I am more of an advanced user, so I decided to let it go in and see where things go. Well it only went around 1" inside and didn't go any further. The only problem was that the base was VERY uncomfortable after going inside.

Material / Texture

Since this toy is made of PVC, it’s not the easiest thing in the world to clean. You can't boil it, and certain cleaners can damage it. It can also hold bacteria very easily. So, a condom is a definite must! Especially if there will be more than one user, or you will be going between vaginal and anal.

There is a slight smell, but not too bad. I've definitely smelled much worse. The texture is very smooth, and that helps a lot for insertion.

But sadly, I have found after using it a few times (15 or less), the base has started to get a tear in it. So, the material is not the toughest out there either.

Design / Shape / Size

This toy was made with great things in mind. The shape of the two bulbs is GREAT. The POP each one gives you is just breathtaking. This toy was designed for the just beyond beginner, too large for the first timer, but just a hair too small for the advanced. Though it does provide a great full feeling, and works very well to warm up to those bigger guys.

The length of the toy is good; although I feel another inch wouldn't have hurt.

But the real make or break for this toy is the base. The base is VERY flimsy. I'm not sure if it would work better on someone not so "stretched", or if it would be the same. But for myself, the base did nothing but add a little more full feeling right before it sucked itself inside. This could be a very scary situation for someone not expecting it, and/or not knowing what to do in that type of situation. And it could make for a very “interesting” visit to the E.R.!

I think the size of the base is perfect. It is small and discreet enough to hardly even notice it being there. It just needs to be made with either a stronger material, or about twice as thick, which might affect the performance. Or perhaps they could have just added a neck about 1" long. That could have solved the length issue and the base issue in one go.
    • Whimsical / artistic


With the smooth design of this plug, it makes for easy insertion with minimal lube. The two bulbs, and the shape, are just great feeling. I found it easier to use my hand to push it in. But if your using this guy to work to the next level, it might be better to set it on the edge of the tub with one leg inside and one leg out, and lower yourself slowly onto it.

Overall, on the performance side, (leaving the flimsy base out of it) I give this plug a good solid B. Taking the base into consideration it’s leaning closer to a D.

Plugs are meant to be worn for quite some time and with the base on this plug, it just couldn't happen.

You could just tie on a retrieval cord and let it go. But again, the base going inside just made it way too uncomfortable to attempt that route.

Care and Maintenance

Since this toy is made of PVC, it makes cleaning a little bit more tricky than your glass and silicone toys. This toy can't be boiled, or have just any old cleaner used on it. The best solution for this toy is to use warm water and good hand soap. But make sure you do this before and after each use. And since cleaning this toy can be a little tricky, a condom can make cleaning a little easier.

Personal comments

This plug has a great design, and it's a great idea. But it's brought out to you with cheap material and craftsmanship.

    Great review. I like the shape. Seems this would be a lot better if made from silicone.
  • KnK
    Ergh, this sounds horrible. And the base tore? That's just awful

    You purposefully allowed an anal toy to be pulled inside of you completely? WOW

    Thanks for the review, sorry it didn't work out for you!

    Thanks for all the comments guys! it was my first attempt at writing any review ever. and to Airen Wolf, yes i did allow the toy to go completely in. Any one with a lot of experience has done the same thing. I don't suggest trying it yourself. But as long as the toy is not long or hard plastic and with proper movements you can control where the toy goes. Search the web you will see many people doing the same. but like i said without the proper knowledge and experience DO NOT attempt it yourself! and besides some toys and plugs are much more comfortable after going completely in. you just tie a retrieval cord to it in case things don't go as planned. but i can't stress it enough I DO NOT recommend it!!

    Thanks for the review! If the material is that weak there's no way I'm buying it.
