The li'l end - butt plug by Doc Johnson - review by ustwo

Must-have for the absolute beginner

Worth every penny. The beginner should look no further for a first anal toy. It is the best thing out there to get you comfortable with having something in your ass and is far superior and more comfortable than fingers. This toy might also help convince the reluctant. As a male, it's a great accent to a sexual experience. But writing on behalf of a beginner female, it can be also be used to produce a mind-blowing orgasm.
The best beginner anal toy.
None, unless you want to use it hands-free.

useful review


There isn't anything better than this toy for the absolute anal beginner. It's not intimidating, the material is excellent - it's smooth, squishy, and holds lube - and the tapered tip makes insertion a breeze. Overall, it's just plain comfortable. If you've never done any anal play, or have a partner new to anal play and who is either on the fence or needs some convincing, this is your ticket.

I would recommend this toy over fingers any day.

On the other hand, if you're looking to use it as a plug that stays put hands-free, look someplace else.

Material / Texture

I can't say enough good things about the silicone this toy is made of. For the purpose of this toy it's absolutely perfect. It's smooth with no texture and does an excellent job of holding lube. Squeezing the toy, you can feel it has the right combination of squishy yet firm. In other words, it's squishy enough to allow beginners some "relaxation leeway" with insertion, but firm enough to slide in without being flimsy.

We didn't really notice any odor with this toy. Cleaning is easy and quick - soap and water should be enough but you can boil it if you want.
    • Flexible
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

This toy's shape and size make it beginner friendly. Tapering allows the inexperienced user to practice relaxation of the anus and makes insertion easy. At the widest point, it's really about the size of a finger or thumb. The neck is barely flared, which makes taking the toy out very easy, but keeping it in hands free can be difficult and nearly impossible during orgasm. The base has excellent suction and is more than big enough to keep it from slipping all the way in.

Something we like about this toy is the circumference of the neck. Instead of slimming down like most buttplugs, it maintains some size. More on that below.

Once you're used to insertion, it can be popped in within a few seconds. As a warmup toy, it's superior to the rest of the beginner plugs because it doesn't slim down to a skinny neck. This toy's neck is nearly as big as the wide point, so the anus has a chance to relax to a larger diameter. The downside, however, is the toy needs some way of being held in.

What's not to like about this toy? Nothing. For its purpose, it's a 10/10.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

It's easy to clean with soap and water. You can boil it if you really find it necessary, but we don't. The toy does attract lint but not as much as some silicone toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


We have used the toy during blowjobs, cunnilingus, intercourse, and as a warmup toy for bigger stuff.

For us, the toy has really shined during intercourse, despite how difficult it is to use hands-free. In missionary position, my wife finds she has to hold it in with one hand. In the doggy-style position I find my hand or my lower abdomen works to keep it inserted in her. The toy can be used hands free by me if she is on top, however. I find if I angle myself the right way the edge of the base will rest on the bed or couch and not slip out even during orgasm.

My wife was VERY apprehensive about anal play when I introduced her to this toy, which was her first sex toy ever. She was very reluctant to insert the toy the first time but by the time it was completely in, she was nervously giggling. The comfort and ease of insertion made it no task. The kicker came when we decided to have intercourse - I had never seen her in such ecstasy not only during orgasm but throughout intercourse. The feeling of the toy in her ass was good for me through the vaginal wall as well. She highly recommends double penetration in missionary position with this toy!

Our guess is that even if your partner is not completely relaxed, the toy has enough give and holds lube so well that it will probably slide in without discomfort. And then they will relax and enjoy.
