Crystal jellies anal starter - dildo by Doc Johnson - review by JennieInTechnicolour

Great for beginners!

As someone new to the world of anal toys, I am extremely pleased with this toy. The flexible material makes it very easy to insert, and very comfortable to maneuver. As a beginner, I was worried about soreness, but this left me eager for more! This is a pretty versatile beginner's toy. It can be used manually, or you can take advantage of the suction cup base!
Smooth, flared base, suction cup base, lightly textured, small girth
Tip of toy was a bit pointy

useful review


This product is a must-have for individuals who are new to anal play and want something to help ease them into the experience. The length is just long enough - not too short but not too long, either - which leaves the product looking more user-friendly than intimidating. The width is also a comfortable 1", wide enough for pleasure and a great size for beginners!

It's great solo or with a partner, whichever you prefer. It's easy to manipulate, or for a partner to manipulate. However, things can get a bit slippy due to the material it's made from, so keep a good grip! Fortunately, the base is flared (and has a suction cup!) so there's no safety risk if you let it go to use your hands elsewhere.

Material / Texture

The texture is interesting, but feels great for an anal toy. Beginners will appreciate that, while it does look realistic, it's not textured or designed like more advanced toys. Its appearance will definitely help beginners feel more at ease about this product. Unfortunately, the smell is not that pleasant. It has a strong, strange smell. I'm not sure how to describe it, but it doesn't really go away, even after several washes. Thankfully, this toy is not meant to go anywhere near your face.

Design / Shape / Size

I really love the design of this toy! The colour is vivid and appealing, and the suction cup base makes for an interesting time, as well as a safe time. Its design is more realistic but not extreme; however, it's pretty obvious that it's a sex toy. It's not very discreet! It's the perfect length, girth, and material for a beginner. It has a very smooth feel in use, while the subtle textures enhance the pleasure. As long as plenty of lube is used, this toy is great! Make sure you don't leave it sitting around, though. Hair sticks to this thing like glue!

The comfort of this product is fabulous! The material and subtle textures make for a very pleasurable experience, which is great for someone who is new to anal toys. If anything, it's made me eager to use this again! The only issue I had with this was that the tip of it is a bit pointy, which made me just a bit uneasy at first. However, it's not noticeable otherwise. I have not yet used the suction cup, but it seems to hold up quite well, and should offer a great time!

Care and Maintenance

MAKE SURE TO CLEAN IT ASAP! That should be obvious for all toys, but especially for this one! Clean it with warm water and soap, and dry it with a CLEAN towel! Hair will stick to this toy, and it's not fun trying to get off, so store somewhere clean and away from areas that might have pet hairs. Best to keep it away from heat, considering the material seems more prone to heat damage. It works great with a water-based lube, which washes off both the toy and body very easily!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
    • High maintenance


The packaging itself isn't very fancy. It's just a simple plastic packaging. You pop the top open and out comes your toy! It's very easy and very simple to open, and you can easily place the toy back in for storage. Nothing needs to be ripped or peeled open that would ruin the package. I absolutely love the product description. The positive and healthy attitude this packaging shows made me more eager and less nervous to use it. It has plenty of humour and a great attitude towards sex, which I LOVE!
    • Friendly
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative

Personal comments

Overall, I really enjoy this toy. As a beginner, it didn't leave me feeling sore at all, which I was worried about. The material is very comfortable, and compatible with my skin and lube. I'm very happy about the flared base, and VERY excited to see how that suction cup base works! Make sure you clean it VERY WELL and store it properly!
