Nothing thin about it

If you're looking for something thin, then keep looking because the Thin tool is definitely not thin. It is made out of PVC, so that's not too good either. But for an inexpensive, no frills simple dildo, this is not a bad thing to add to your collection.
No batteries, simple no frills dildo.

extremely useful review


I found this toy in the anal sex toy category, but I really think this toy can be used for vaginal or anal play. The manipulation of this toy is self-explanatory. Not battery operated. No extra gadgets. Just a dildo. There is no best time to use this toy, no before or after or during, rather whenever you feel the mood to use it... use it. My personal opinion is it shouldn't be named Thin tool at all. There was nothing thin about this dildo expect the "handle".

Material / Texture

This is made of PVC. PVC holds a safety rating of 2. PVC dildos do have a slight odor when you first open them. This one is no different. After use and cleaning several times, the PVC odor goes away. It is very realistic feeling and is veined, which adds to the pleasure and appearance of this dildo. This dildo holds a lifelike firmness (compared to a real hard penis). I believe the Thin tool can be used by both beginners and advanced users.
    • Veined

Design / Shape / Size

In my opinion, the Thin tool is shaped very much like a real penis, right down the vein placement on the shaft. This toy is not thin, as the name seems to mislead at 7 1/2" long (7" insertable), circumference 4 3/4", diameter 1 1/2". See, not all that thin. The toy is somewhat realistic looking and even sports veins. If the user is using this anally, I suggest a good warm up toy or being an advanced user. If you are using this vaginally, it doesn't matter if you're a beginner or advanced. I suppose you could travel with this, but only if you have the room to store it in your luggage.

I was very misled because I didn't read the measurements before I got the Thin tool. I should have. I was expecting something thin and, well, I got a thick dildo. The handle I thought wouldn't be good, but it provides good grip for either partner play or solo play. When the handle is wet, it doesn't slip easily from your hand. Also, it is very easy to use solo and you don't have to stretch to get the right feel. And since it's not battery operated, no worry of dead batteries.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

PVC is easy to clean. You can use hand soap or antibacterial soap. You can also use toy cleaner to clean up this toy. Make sure it's dry before you store. I stored mine in either the original packaging or in a baggy. Water or oil-based lubes can be used with PVC toys.

Personal comments

I would have loved to see the Thin tool thinner and would really like to see it made out of something with a higher safety rating.


The Thin tool was far too intimidating for me to use for back door play, so I use it as a normal vaginal dildo. When you're looking for simple play, this is the one for you. I like to use it before sex to get my lover worked up. And since it has the handle at the end, I can do it myself which seems to get lover worked up faster.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this toy. I still hate it for its intended purpose of anal entry. I still find it's way to thick. I am still not wild about the material the Thin Tool is made of and I still think it shouldn't be called the THIN tool.

    Good review. I agree, this thing is intimidating. Just looking at the picture I could tell I wouldn't be intereseted even before seeing the measurements.

    In your review, it would be useful if you included why a material is a specific rating on the safety scale. Thanks for including the measurements.
  • Talena
    I don't know why the materials are specific ratings. All the materials, not just PVC are specific ratings. If you click on what each toy is made of they will tell you the safety rating if it's not on the main main. I'm not even sure who (what company) came up with the safety rating scale.
