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

Look For Another Toy. Serves Its Purpose but It's Really Not Great.

There are much better starter toys than this, I think. Try for a silicone toy that's also longer and slender like this one, and you'll be much happier.

useful review


As stated in the name, it's designed for beginners to anal play, which brought me to purchasing it when I first used it. The size and shape are appropriate and not too intimidating at all. The base is probably big enough that it should prevent it from getting lost; however, there's no telling what could happen since the material is so soft it may just give at some point if it's not used with some measure of caution. It does have a suction cup shaped into the base as well.

If you wanted to use this as a strap-on, you'd need a harness- either with small or adjustable-size rings seeing as the base is relatively small. Its smooth texture would also lend to strap-on use.

Material / Texture

The material is awful. I can't stress that enough. It smells pretty odd at first, then after a few uses it picks up smells and turns colors. If you don't keep it completely sealed in a condom or other barrier it will basically turn rancid. I wound up throwing it away because of this.

Design / Shape / Size

The only thing I really feel that's redeeming about this is the shape because it really wasn't bad to use as a first-time toy. It's friendly and the texture feels quite nice. I didn't have any real trouble with the base, but I'm also a bit more careful when I use toys.

The suction cup feature works fairly well, as long as the surface is relatively clean and flat. It should work decently in a proper harness.

Care and Maintenance

If you plan on buying this and keeping it for any length of time, you should wrap it in a condom and tie it to make sure it stays clean.

    You stated the "material" as a con but you did not say what the material is. You said the "size" is appropriate but the base is too small but you did not list the dimensions of either. You said to make sure it stays "clean" but you didn't say how you're supposed to keep it clean i.e. what methods are compatible. You also didn't say what lubes can and cannot be used with this toy. It might also have been useful to say whether or not you thought this toy would be good for vaginal use.

    Parts of your review were useful and enjoyable but you're missing many crucial details. I would suggest you take part in the Mentor Program. You can find a list of Mentors on the Community Corner page. They'll help you to become a better writer and show you what needs to be included in every review.

    I am participating in a mentor program at the moment, I just thought it would be alright to submit this since it's already been reviewed quite a bit. The material and size specs as well as lube compatibility I assume that the reader would be responsible for determining, since most of that information is listed in the item description. However, I do appreciate your input and I will keep trying to improve my reviews. Thanks!

    I agree with you. I have this toy and I need to just throw it away. Thank you for your review.

    Thanks for the review.
    I have anal plugs by Doc Johnson that are pretty similar. PVC actually and all in all this material is just a bad idea.
