Anal plug - butt plug by Doc Johnson - review by Shannen

Jelly material ruins it!

Potentially toxic material overrides anything else. Personally, I also found the shape of it did not provide noticeable stimulation. It is cheap, but not worth even the cheap price.
Flared base, narrow tip for easy insertion.
The jelly material. If the product were re-made using a safe material, it might be a good plug.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is designed for anal insertion, and in theory could be used either solo as a butt plug, or during sex for anal stimulation while the vagina or penis are otherwise played with.

The jelly material has a strange scent, and as explained below, causes an unpleasant chemical reaction that means I cannot recommend using it.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of jelly, and I'm sorry to say it was rendered useless for me because of the nasty burning sensation that ensued.

This was given to me as a gift to introduce me to anal play in a non-threatening way. Well it wasn't a very pleasant experience because of a mild burning sensation around the anus, which I thought at the time was due to being unused to penetration of that sort. Also, I was distracted by having other areas played with simultaneously, so I was unsure what I was feeling.

I was sore afterward, and because I didn't find any significant pleasure from the toy, decided that anal play hurt and wasn't worthwhile. After cleaning it, I put the toy in a drawer to languish. Fast forward several months, and I re-discovered it in that drawer, and took it out. While holding it and turning it over to examine the base, I felt tingling in my hand which quickly escalated to a mild burning feeling. Out of curiosity, I laid it on my thigh and left it there. The burning arose within thirty seconds, and within two minutes the part of my skin that was touching the toy was red.

Now I believe that the soreness I experienced in using it was in fact a reaction to the chemicals in the jelly material.

If a person was really keen to use it, I suppose they could cover it with a condom (and be sure to cover the base as well to prevent burns to the hands). However the thought of using something with such an unpleasant effect, even covered, would put me off entirely, and I suspect most people would feel the same. I simply threw mine away - I do not want it in my house exuding whatever chemicals are causing that reaction, and I cannot recommend the toy because of it.

Design / Shape / Size

This has a shape which is very narrow at the tip to ease in, and a very flared base which means it cannot be accidentally inserted too far.

Personally, I found that the shape of it did nothing for me at all — I think because the narrow tip meant that when inserted it wasn't really touching anything. I would consider it to be non-threatening in that regard, but not very useful in stimulation.

Depending on your anatomy you may find a similar shape to be worthwhile. However this particular toy is ruined by the jelly material, as explained above.

Simply, the material makes it useless. It's not worth buying, and if you already have it I would suggest you consider either throwing it away or only using it when covered with a condom.

Care and Maintenance

This toy may not be safe to use, nor to store with other toys. I would recommend not keeping it, or at least isolating it from other toys.

    Sorry to hear about your burning experience. A condom is a good way to protect yourself. What makes you think it would a better experience if the material was improved? It seems like it did nothing for you. Thanks for the review.

    Thank you all for your welcoming comments
    @Jimbo Jones, I'm not sure that it would be better. It certainly would be safer, and I appreciate that other people may find the shape of it works better for them than it did for me, so to be fair I am allowing for that possibility

    Even if the material were changed to silicone it's likely that this plug wouldn't stay in during use.
