Sasha Grey signature plug large - butt plug by Doc Johnson - review by Bill220

It's a Beauty and a Beast!

Although a little pricey (in my opinion) the Sasha Grey Signature plug is worth every penny. I would buy this product again in a minute. Its design and size are perfect for me and it definitely lives up to its great reputation.
Perfectly suited for daily and extended wear. Comfortable. Smooth texture. Quality craftsmanship.

extremely useful review


I purchased this product for extended wear rather than for masturbation (I tend to use dildos for that). I'm new to using plugs during my daily activities but not to anal play. I would not recommend this to a beginner, it's just too large. Having said that, when ordering, I was torn between the medium and the large. The pictures make the large look huge, but I'm always up for a challenge so I ordered the large anyway.

As soon as it arrived, I couldn't wait to give it a try. Upon opening the box, the first thing I noticed was its size. It's not nearly as large and intimidating as it looks in the photos. I got myself mentally prepared and went about inserting this ebony beauty.

It took me only a few minutes to work it in fully, but for 4-5 days prior, I'd been wearing a large Doc Johnson Classic Royal plug for at least a few hours a day, so please keep that in mind should you buy one of these. As a point of reference (and perhaps a word of caution), after 2 days of no anal play, I attempted to insert it this morning but couldn't and had to warm up with another toy first.

Personally, I wouldn't use this plug for any kind of thrusting. The business end is fairly large and abrupt and the neck isn't really long enough to thrust in and out to any degree. I've done some very, and I mean very, slow in and out with the aforementioned DJ Royal but that was mainly for stretching purposes. With the Sasha Grey, I don't see myself doing that. I think that dildos are more appropriate for thrusting in general, but that's just me.

My wife isn't into anything anal but if she were, I probably wouldn't use this for couples play. I think it's more suited to solo use and/or daily wear.

As for prostate stimulation, I really don't feel it, but there aren't many toys that I've used that do that for me. I have no idea why that is.

Overall, the plug is very comfortable and easy to walk, sit, stand etc. That's exactly what I was looking for and exactly what I got.

Material / Texture

This is my first glass toy so I was pretty excited to try it out. Obviously, the texture is hard and more care needs to be taken with insertion since there's no give to it like a silicone toy would have. The smoothness, super glossy finish and overall quality are impressive. I detected no discernible flaws or defects in workmanship. Bumps and pronounced textures tend to be uncomfortable and/or irritating to me so the smoothness of the toy is very appealing, plus cleanup is a breeze.
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

I am very pleased with the shape and design and it is exactly what I was looking for in a daily wear plug. Once inserted, it's really comfortable and doesn't bother me in the least. The other plug I was using had such a large circumference at the bottom that I had to take it out to urinate (sorry if that's too much information). I'm wearing it as I write this and when I contract my PC muscles it moves in and out a bit, creating a pleasant sensation.
    • Not for beginners


The best thing about this toy is how good it feels inside me. For my purposes, the neck is the perfect length/width, the base doesn't press into my skin or pinch me, and the head isn't too large as to be uncomfortable after it's inserted. It's just the right size for me. Quality and workmanship are excellent as well.
The only suggestion I could make for a change in the design is to maybe have the bottom part of the head of the plug kind of tapered (think of a smooth diamond shaped head). With the way it's designed now, taking it out is rather abrupt because you go from the neck directly to the widest part of the plug. It's not a deal breaker, however.
    • Comfortable
    • Discreet
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Cleanup is extremely easy. I use hot water and liquid antibacterial soap to clean it.
I store it in its original box (see below for packaging info).
I've used two water based lubes thus far (Astroglide & JOH20 Anal Lube) and find both to be lacking for long term wear because they tend to be absorbed after a short time, which makes removing this toy a bit uncomfortable. I've never tried a silicone lube, but will be ordering some to try soon.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The box that it comes in is really fancy and the inside of the box has a nice Styrofoam block inside that the toy sits in. It's perfect for storage. Plus the EF packaging was good, as always.
    • Good for storage
Follow-up commentary
Of the other 3 plugs that I currently own, this one is the most comfortable and can be kept inserted longer than any of the others (even its sister plug, the Sexy Spades Large). The base of the Sasha Grey is less noticeable and bothersome than the Sexy Spades, despite it having the same measurements. Maybe it's because the neck of the Sasha Grey is narrower, allowing it to move around more easily.

It's pretty darn durable too! I dropped it onto my ceramic tile bathroom floor by accident one day and it didn't break. It did, however, crack the tile.

I'm completely pleased with this purchase.

    Great first review! I've looked at this before, afterall I love plugs and glass... But I've never combined the two. For some reason, it makes me nervous.

    I was very hesitant to purchase a glass toy but I'm glad I gave it a try.

    Mike, I use a cone shaped plug (like Super Big End) before inserting this one.
