Love this green guy

Overall, I was extremely happy with this item! Not only is it cute, colorful, and small, but when used with the right partner, it can be amazing! It's the perfect size for anal play or possibly for vaginal play if you have a small and narrow cervix. It also helps that it has a suction cup for solo play.
Small, Nice design, Easy maintenance
None that I could find

extremely useful review


As the name states, this is an anal toy. This is best suited for people who are just starting to or are being reintroduced to anal sex/play such as myself. It does have a suction cup at the base, so feel free to stick it to any flat surface if you are playing alone. I have used the suction cup on mirrors, shower walls, and wood and it has left no damage. Although I have never tried it, I suppose that you could use this vaginally as well. The anal starter is also O-ring compatible.

Material / Texture

The anal starter is made of polyvinyl chloride which makes it water resist and super easy to take care of. It doesn't have a taste and has a slight almost jelly type odor to it. It has a smooth surface with not much drag to it. There are very slight ridges to it that run along the shaft down either side. Unlike some anal probes, this one is extremely flexible and in the shape of a penis with a circumcised head and smooth shaft. It's great that it comes in purple or green with a swirly design. Water and silicone based lubes are safe to use.

Design / Shape / Size

Other than the color, the design is pretty realistic. The size is perfect for me. It's around 6 inches total in length with about 4 inches of that able to be inserted. It has a nice thickness to it. Since it's small in size and has no wires, if you travel, it should be easy to stow away or hide in luggage without any problems. It's great for someone just getting into anal play!

It's small in size and easy to use and clean. It has a suction cup at the base that I found worked fairly well. Great for cases where you want to play alone and is also O-ring compatible for harnesses. If you're going to use the suction cup, be aware that it isn't the strongest suction, so it may slip off. Use caution if using this in the shower! Considering that this is an anal toy, it has great flexibility. It has pleased me time and time again!

    • Comfortable

Care and Maintenance

Extremely easy to take care of. Because of the material, fuzzies and dust can stick it to so make sure you clean before and after each use. To clean it, you can either use warm water and antibacterial soap or sex toy cleaner. Be sure to clean in the groove between the head and shaft!

Just like most toys, keep out of the sunlight or extreme heat so it doesn't get damaged. A satin lined box or pouch would be ideal, if you don't have one available, just be sure to keep it away from other jelly toys. You don't want them sticking together! You can put it in a simple zip lock baggie if you want.

    Con: PVC isn't one of the safest materials.
