Rump shakers medium - vibrating anal plug by Doc Johnson - review by isisandshiva

Not Impressed

Depending on the goal, this could be a good or a bad buy. It is probably too big to be used as a first time anal toy and the smell could dissuade ever wanting to try anything else. However for this price if you are looking to try a vibrating anal toy, I wouldn't call it an awful choice.
Price, easy to keep clean.
Strong smell that doesn't go away. vibration makes lots of noise, but isn't strong.

useful review


I honestly can't say I'm as impressed as others seem to be with this as vibrator. It just doesn't feel as strong, or as focused in use as it does holding it in your hand. That being said, for use as a plug without the vibration, it's great. It is comfortable for as extended wear and the flared base is flexible and kinda squishy so it sits comfortably while going about daily life.

Material / Texture

This toy is made out of rubber, which isn't my favorite, being hard to keep free of germs. It does have its benefits in terms of structure; once in it is very comfortable because the base is very soft, however it is pretty flexible, and that could present a problem for insertion.

For me, the smell is the biggest sticking point. When I opened the package, it had an immensely strong plastic/chemical odor, and two weeks later even with being washed and aired out it still hasn't dissipated to the point of being acceptable.

Another note is that because it has a very smooth, "rubbery" texture it does not hold lubricants well at all, at least not water based ones, which is what I use. The other option that can be used with this is silicone, however then it can't be used with silicone toys, because if the silicone touches the lube it can damage the surface of the toy.

Design / Shape / Size

In terms of shape it is very standard. It is very blatant in what it is, discretion is not it's purpose. However traveling with this seems like it would be convenient because the control actually disconnects from the cord so that it can't turn on en route. For the cord and control, while it does seem conveniently long enough to use, it's also short enough to get tangled and get in the way. The control is a very good size; big enough to hold the dial that changes the speed fits nicely by my thumb, and the cover that holds the 2 AAs is very secure and won't come off during use.

As for size I guess I would call it on the large side of beginner, probably not as a first taste of anal play though. If you are looking at this for a fist toy I would get out a ruler and look at how the measurements (4.5" insertable, 1.75 diameter) translate to real life, as it was definitely bigger than I had envisioned. I personally find it to be too flexible for me, but the shape and taper were good.

Functions / Performance / Controls

I'm not sure what I expectations I had when I got it, but I'm sure that it doesn't meet them. For as loud as the vibrations are, one would think I would be able to feel them, but alas that is not the case. This is a dial operated system going from off, to in my hand I'd call it high. However, inserted I can't feel a thing but I can still hear it loud and clear. Being dial operated on a remote, it is really simple to operate though. Just turn the dial until it is at the level you want. It doesn't have any patterns or pulsations, just steady vibration, though to be fair you can spin the dial up and down to make pulses and roller coaster patterns. On another note, this is not waterproof so be careful when cleaning because the cord is oddly located through a slit in the bottom rubber and water could get into the motor through there.

Care and Maintenance

Caring for this is very easy, and can be made easier by using a condom. Because it is rubber, and slightly porous, it is a must if sharing. The best feature of this toy in my opinion is that it is not a lint/dust/cat hair magnet. Because it does not come with a case, it's ability to stay clean is a real bonus in my opinion.


As someone who sadly got used the packaging marvels of LELO and the Sinfonia, this is in a plastic package that was designed to go on a hanger on a wall, not exactly something one could store things in. Not that there is much confusion in how to use this toy but there are no instructions included either.

Follow-up commentary
It's sad to say but a year later and my biggest issue is not that I don't like the size, or the shape, or the fact that I chopped off the cord so now it's just a plain plug, it's that after a year of use and washing, it still has the most wretched chemical smell. I'm not a green freak or afraid of plastics, but something smelling this chemicaly this long, I think it's a problem.

    I sincerely appreciate your candidness about this product. Too often I'm reading reviews where the reviewer says great things about the product and mentions in passing a possible negative... then I go ahead and order the product and that passing negative was a huge detractor. So THANK YOU for being really candid. It means something to those of us spending our hard-earned pennies so freely. Excellent review.
