Glo Slim vibrating - butt plug by Doc Johnson - review by Rainspiritkitty

Add resource

Not a Glo-ing Review for me, but can be for beginner couples.

The slim feature would be great for beginners, but only if they had a helping hand. Nicely made and fun in the dark, couples can be creative. While I didn't get much of an after-Glo on my own, I plan to try it again when my Sir is back in person.
*Great for Beginner Partners
*Firm and flexible
*Strong Vibrations
*It just wont stay put
*Can't use alone.
*Glo was weak
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Glo Slim vibrating butt plug is made for beginner anal with or without a partner. It has a remote control on a short cord and vibrates in 7 different ways. It takes 3 AAA batteries and I was surprised at the vibrating power. I believe the best use for this plug is for those of you who want to try anal with a partner but may need some training. Set the plug by a lamp for about an hour before play to make it "Glo" and have fun as your partner holds it in place and takes you through the vibrations. You may want to lube it up a little first.

Material / Texture

Made with Sil-a-Gel(PVC and ABS) it is antibacterial, non-toxic and free of latex, cadmium and phthalats and is a 5 on the material safety rating. It is completely body safe. It is semi porous, so make sure to clean it well. The texture can have some drag on it's own, but it gets really slippery with just a drop of lube. I liked that it was firm enough for easy insertion, yet soft and bendable so as not to bruise. It has a strong odor, but no taste. If your partner is sensitive to smells, it may be a turn off, but didn't bother me that much.

    • Smooth
    • Strong odor

Design / Shape / Size

The length is about 4-3/4" long with just about 4" insert-able. The widest point of the shaft is only an inch wide and the base is safe at 2-1/2". I like how the shaft is firm enough for easy penetration, but still soft and flexible enough to not bruise. The length and width of the shaft is no larger than my middle finger and is perfect for those who want an easy introduction to anal play with wonderfully strong vibrations. It can be used for both men and women and would be great for P-spot stimulation. So... here is the doesn't have enough taper to allow your muscles to grip it and hold it in place. This is not a plug that can be used alone comfortably or with other toys for double penetration. Have a partner hold it in place and cycle through the vibrations for a great time. He will get a kick out of the glow.

Because the vibrations were so strong, I did try to use it as a clitoris and G-spot stimulater, but it did not work out.

First, I had a really hard time getting it to glow. There are no instructions in the box or on the manufacturer web site. I didn't really want it sitting out because of my kid. So when she was gone I set it under a lamp for an hour and got it to glow. It was a weak glow and didn't last long. It could be that the light wasn't strong enough so I will rate the glow performance mid to low for now. Please, comment if you are familiar with Glo products and let me know if this is typical or if I did it wrong.

My Experience for rating the performance:
I used the Glo Slim vibrating butt plug by myself. My Sir was out of town and watched via the internet. We both laughed at the glow in the dark features and the loud sounds it makes as we cycled through the vibrations. I love laughter in our playtime, so I didn't mind it much. I used a very small drop of my Sliquid Sassy so penetration and insertion was perfect. On my hand and knees, I let it go to grab the remote control and out it slid. I kept trying to reinsert it and clench my muscles, but it kept popping right out. After growling for a moment and hearing my Sir laugh. I changed positions to lay on my side, reinserted it and held it with one hand while using the remote with the other. The vibrations were strong and stimulating and I enjoyed it, but still needed that something more to reach orgasm. So I reached for my g-spot vibrator and.... out it slipped again!
Letting out a growl of frustration to my Sir's laughter, I finally sat on the damn thing. Of course I didn't plan properly and the cord for the remote got twisted around and I had to fight with that for a minute. Finally, I could sit on it, find a vibration I liked, bend back so I could use my Posh Petite Teaser 2, and seek release. It was a good thing the Glo Slim is flexible and could bend with me.
    • Comfortable
    • Hard to figure out
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Here is more information on how to care for Sil-a-gel:

"Hygiene And Maintenance
Though it is relatively safe, Sil-a-Gel has the tendency to attract dust and small debris, therefore we recommended that these toys be protected with condoms and cleaned before and after each use with warm water and mild soap."

Instead of a condom, you may try using a finger cot because of its slim design. I always use an antibacterial soap. Do not completely submerge in water as it is NOT waterproof. You can use either a water or silicone based lube, but really do not need much to get it slippery. I suggest storing it in the package, discussed below, to keep it free from dust and lint.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Glo Vibrating butt plug comes in a box stating exactly what it is with a window to see the toy. It is Definately not discreet. The box has bold print on what it does and smaller print on the material and disclaimer to injury. Doc Johnson is really proud to have "The Hottest Plug Ever to be Seen in the Dark!"

Box next to paperback

Inside the box is molded tray inset with a plastic cover for perfect storing. There are no directions or paperwork inside the box and nothing on the internet to tell you how it works or to get it to glow. Use is fairly straight forward though.
Inside tray

I store it how it came in the box and in my locked toy box, but I will not be leaving the box out.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
Follow-up commentary
Honestly, my Sir and I have never tried this toy again. Maybe someday, but honestly, now that we have the Crystal Tulip, we have forgotten that this one exists.

    I wanted to add a note about the smell. It is really strong at first, but after washing it several times and leaving it out, the smell did diminish.
