Nice beginner anal probe

The Don Juan is an anal probe ideal for anal beginners, as it is very comfortable, easily insertable, and made of body-safe silicone. Those looking for girth, length, or a true butt plug should look elsewhere. If you enjoy smaller toys, particularly while sitting or manipulating manually, this is a good option. This may or may not provide some mild prostate stimulation, depending on your anatomy.
Silicone, comfortable, beginner sized, tapered base, priced reasonably, flexible/soft.
Not big enough for experienced anal players, could be tapered more like a butt plug.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Don Juan, by Pleasure Works, is a small beginner anal probe made from 100% silicone. It is ideal for inserting and sitting, but it's really not tapered enough to wear as a butt plug, during sex, or out and about. It is good for warm-up or anal exploration for newbies, and perhaps the moderately anal experienced.

It has a slightly curved shape, which fits the anatomy well and is flexible and pliable. It's great for solo or partner use, for male and female alike. It is small enough to be travel-friendly and portable.

The base fits pretty comfortably between your cheeks and is comfortable for sitting.

Material / Texture

The material is 100% silicone and body-safe. Silicone is 10 on the EF safety scale, and can be sanitized by the usual methods of boiling for 3 min, soaking in a 10% bleach solution, cleaning in a dishwasher, or using toy cleaners. Soap and water is fine between uses if not sharing with a partner, too. The silicone is plushy and flexible. I was kind of hoping it would be firmer and provide prostate stimulation, but that's not really the case.

This silicone, like most, will and does attract dust and lint, so washing or rinsing before use is a good idea.

This toy is food-grade material, hypoallergenic, latex-free, nonporous and phthalates free, for those concerned with product materials.
    • Flexible
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Don Juan is 4 1/2" long, with 3 1/2" being insertable. Its diameter at the widest is 1". It has a series of 3 bulges that you can feel upon insertion or removal, and a tapered base for safe anal insertion. It weighs .5 oz and is harness compatible, but it's pretty small for that type of use, to be honest.

This is definitely a beginner-sized toy. I am far from a size queen when it comes to anal play, but this left me wanting something bigger, as I have gotten more experienced with larger anal toys recently. It is perfect for an anal beginner, though, and comfortable to insert/wear. Average users might gain some pleasure from Don Juan, but not as much if you only like thick or deep penetration.

The toy is small enough to travel with, hidden away in a suitcase.

This is nice silicone. Not quite Lelo quality, but decent. I wish this toy was tapered more, so it would stay put during sex or long-term wear. It is very comfortable to sit on, though, and with just 3.5" insertable length, you won't be getting poked too deeply or uncomfortably.

You could use this with a harness, but it's rather short for that. The handle can be manipulated for thrusting by oneself or with a partner.

This is an ideal beginner's anal toy, for someone who just wants to get started with anal play and not have any pain or stretching. Advanced players and size queens will not find much interest with this one.

It feels good, and comfortable, but does not provide as much stimulation as I would have hoped for. It conforms with your anatomy and stimulates your anus, but doesn't really hit the prostate much (at least mine). Perhaps it would if it were more rigid, which is my preference.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

You can wash the Don Juan with hot soap and water, with a 10% bleach solution, boil it for 3 minutes, toss it in the dishwasher, or wipe it with antibacterial wipes/cleaners. I usually wipe with an Edenfantasys wipe before heading to the bathroom for a more complete cleaning. You will probably get lube all over your fingers and hands when you remove this from your rear.

It is recommended to only use water-based lubes with the Don Juan. Do not leave it sitting in direct sunlight for extended periods, or expose it to extreme heat for prolonged periods.

It is not recommended to use silicone-based lubricant with silicone toys, of course, because it can degrade the material. You can, however, do a spot test at your own risk, as some silicone users can attest.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging is a very basic, small, thin cardboard box with a picture showing the product. It is recyclable, but not a great storage solution. I quickly threw mine away. There were no instructions included, but I didn't really expect any either. It's about as basic as it gets.

Personal comments

This is a nice toy for a beginner looking for a first anal toy. I prefer toys tapered so they stay put, and I really enjoy prostate stimulation more than just anal stimulation. That said, this is easy to insert and comfortable, so if you are just getting started and are anal-curious, don't hesitate to pick this up. The price is reasonable for a silicone toy vs. some others.

If you are an advanced anal player, you will want something bigger. This is not a toy that will stay inserted, unless you are sitting down or maybe lying on your back.

    Excellent review! I seen this in my assignment cart as a DR review, and it made me think it might be nice for vaginal play too, but decided to pass since I haven't done anal anything. I really love that you added photos of it to your review. The texture seems pretty nice!

    Another fantastic review. One of your photos shows it with (I'm pretty sure - correct me if I'm wrong) one of the new mood naughty plugs. Which size is that one? Thanks!

    Kendra, it's a perfect beginner should try it.
    Melanie...that is the large Mood naughty 2....I did a review of it too.

    Thanks for the review! I'm seriously considering this for my husband, but am still a little torn. We've only used smaller toys, but it's hard not knowing if this would stimulate his prostate well enough or not.
