Anal starter - dildo by Doc Johnson - review by CaliGirl

Purple PeePee

For anyone wanting to try an anal toy, this would be a great way to start. Not only does it come in purple and green, it's a smaller sized, realistically designed toy.
Weak suction cup
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This was designed as an anal starter and it is definitely a great size and design for just that! I think it would make a great first anal toy for anyone. The base is a suction cup. It is not the strongest but it works okay. The suction cup base also has a nice flair to it so there shouldn't be any worries of it getting lost up anywhere! I don't really feel that it is long enough to do any damage, so hard thrusting would be safe with this toy.

For people more advanced in anal play you could use this as a butt plug and walk around with it in. It is very comfortable since it doesn't go very deep.

Material / Texture

This is made from PVC (Polyvinyl chloride). In general, PVC is light, water resistant, offers a long life cycle and does not require much maintenance. These qualities makes PVC one of the most commonly used plastics today. There is no taste at all and has a slight jelly type of odor to it. It is very smooth all over and there is not much drag when sliding it along skin. Along the shaft there are some little ridges on both sides.

This is a great material for beginners since it is smooth and slick. There is a realistic look to it. Just like someone shrunk a cock and then molded it.

Design / Shape / Size

The design is great. Even though I am a more advanced anal toy user, I still enjoy this one every once in a while. It is very real looking other than the color (purple or green). It has nice definition and you can feel the defined texture.

It is on the slimmer/smaller side of the toy scale. The measurements are: Length: 6.25", insertable length: 4.5", circumference: 3.25", diameter: 1", and weighs only 5.5 oz. Since this is so small you could easily tuck it into your luggage for travel.

The size is great but the suction cup is not very strong. You can also use this in an O-ring harness which is a plus. I haven't tried it in a harness yet. The suction cup works, just does not have that strong of a grip.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

PVC is very easy to care for. Just mild soap and water or sex toy cleaning wipes. A down side to it is that it attracts dust, hair and fuzz. I suggest that you wash it before and after every use. There is a little groove under the head that you should pay attention to while cleaning.

Water & silicone based lubes are safe to use with PVC. If you use a condom you can use it with any lubes that you have.
Follow-up commentary
I've got to be brave enough to try to wear this as a plug for extended wear....yea, that wasn't comfortable at all. I still love it as a plug to walk around with, but I can't wear it while sitting. I wore it to the store and was so bothered by it I forgot half of what I went for! I still am trying to work my way up to the mind over matter with it. Let's just say I dare you lol.
