Good starter plug - not for the experienced

Great for beginners. Don't waste your time if you've had anal experience. Several different speeds and vibration patterns allow for variety. This toy is easy to clean, and easy to store. Not a bad addition if you're looking to try anal.
Size - great for beginners. Vibration settings are great. Easy cleaning and storage
Size - small for those with experience in anal
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


A quality product from Doc Johnson, this plug is ideal for beginners. No bigger than a middle finger, what this toy lacks in size for those experienced in anal play can be made up for by its intense vibration settings. With 7 different settings (speeds/patterns), something can be found to peak anyone's interest while using this toy. Great for solo play, but just as good when used with a partner.

Because of its size, it may be good for travel. It won't take up much space, but may grab some attention when going through a metal detector with the wires and battery pack. Also because of its size, it can be discreetly stored, and would be good for someone living at home, in a dorm situation, or with roommates.

It is not waterproof, so be sure not to take it into the tub with you.

Material / Texture

Made from phthalate-free PVC/Sil-a-gel, this plug is soft and very smooth. It's 100% body safe. The toy is latex free, which is an added benefit for those with latex allergies. It is semi-porous, so extreme care should be taken when cleaning. Condoms can be used to help prevent the spread of bacteria.

The plug has absolutely no texture to it, and only slight shaping. When first opened, we did notice a slight odor, but after a few washes it really began to dissipate, and has not been nearly as noticeable.

It has a slight tackiness to it, which may attract dust and other debris, so be sure it's clean before use.
    • Light odor
    • Somewhat porous
    • Sticky

Design / Shape / Size

I have to say, it was much smaller than I expected when I received it. This plug would be ideal for a starter, but may not do much for those with more anal experience. Being only the size of a middle finger, it is not very filling.

The plug has a small tip with a very slight taper to it, getting larger in the center, and then slimming down again for the bottom inch. Again, ideal for any beginner, or those not sure about anal play.

Length: 4 1/2"
Insertable length: 3 1/2"
Circumference: 3"
Diameter: 1"
Neck diameter: 2"

The shaft of the plug is firm, but still allows a little give, so it will not hurt, when being used.
    • Beginner


To make up for the small size, the plug does have great vibrations. With 7 different vibration speeds and patterns, this toy can offer some powerful pleasure at very discreet noise levels.

The toy runs on 3 AAA batteries and, although only used a few times, it does not seem to drain the batteries very quickly. The glow is a little hard to notice since we don't typically use it complete darkness, but it is an added feature that may be fun to some.

Because of its small size, it will not bring discomfort even to those new to anal experimenting.
    • Discreet sound
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

The toy is made of phthalate-free PVC/Sil-a-Gel, which makes it a relatively low maintenance item. The suggested lubricants to use with this type of toy are Silicone based and water based. It should be cleaned with warm water and soap.

Because it is so small it allows for easy storage. I keep it in my night stand drawer (toy box) with my other toys, but I always try to keep them from touching each other to prevent any material interactions between different toys.

One really nice thing about this toy is that the control pack can unplug from the toy to allow for thorough washing. That's one thing I wish more non waterproof toys offered.

We did find that it attracts lint and other dirts very easily. Be sure to wash the toy thoroughly before and after use. We typically use condoms on all toys for anal play. Condoms should always be used on toys when being shared between partners.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging is very straight forward; a cardboard box with a plastic tray holding the plug and the control pack. Couldn't be any easier to open.

    • Minimal
    • Recyclable


Neither my husband nor I are new to anal play, so this was a bit of a let down for us. I prefer natural shaped/sized toys for anal play, and hubby is slowly getting into the same. So our biggest drawback was the size.

Because of the size, we also found it was very frustrating to keep condoms on the toy when being inserted and removed.

If you're a beginner, give it a shot, but it's not for pros.
Follow-up commentary
Because of its small size, this was very disappointing for both hubby and I. If it had had a little more length or girth, I think it would have been enjoyable. This would be a great toy for beginners, and packs a powerful vibration, but won't offer much to those with anal experience. I'm glad I was able to get this as an assignment, but the low price won't break you if you're considering it.
