The Big End is just right!

This plug is a fantastic step up from beginner plugs, with a beautifully crafted tapered bulb, a flexible neck that stays put, and a comfortable base, this relatively cheap toy will be used for a long, long time.
Perfect shape, super comfortable, fantastic size for intermediate anal play, and easy to clean
Long neck causes unintended movement, picks up lint really easy, too big for beginners.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This butt plug is just right for those in the intermediate category with anal play. It can be used with solo play or with a partner. The tapered end is not too firm, but sturdy enough to enter without a problem, and the squish factor of the silicone allows the give needed for me to get it in a comfortable place. The length and width of the neck allows it to be kept firmly in place no matter how much you squirm, and the flexible base allows for comfort whether you're laying, standing, or sitting. When you are standing with it in, you are mildly aware of the base's sides pressing against your cheeks, but I was too busy noticing how amazing it felt to pay much mind.

I would suggest a lot of anal lube, anything but silicone-based can be used with this big boy. My partner and I tried various positions, and while he said he was vaguely aware of the base, it didn't feel uncomfortable or press against him at odd angles. A benefit from using it with a partner is in missionary-type positions it presses the penis against the front wall of the vagina- making it that much easier for him to hit your g-spot.

Material / Texture

The silicone of my new toy had no discernible smell to me, and I tend to be very sensitive to smells. It has a completely nonporous texture, feels smooth with a seamless design. It has a decent amount of squish to it, and is quite flexible at the base, which I consider to be a blessing, as it means I can use it in various positions without having a hard base grinding into my delicate flesh. If you ever get bored with it, it seems to bounce nicely on linoleum, I found out quite by accident. The surface does drag a bit across the skin, which makes it seem more lifelike but does make it almost impossible to use without adequate lubrication. I LOVE the color choices, the charcoal is pretty without looking too girly.

Design / Shape / Size

My only complaint with this toy is the neck, although it's a mixed feeling. The neck is longer than it needs to be, which causes it to FEEL like it's sliding out on occasion, which made me a little paranoid. While that was slightly annoying, it was also amazing, as I've never had a butt plug with a taper neck that allowed for any movement- it naturally moves back and forth ever so slightly on its own. During sex with my partner that was an amazing sensation. The taper from the tip down is a perfect angle, and while I might have wished the base was a little less rectangular so as not to press into my cheeks so much, it did keep out of the way.

This toy is NOT discreet. It looks, well, like a big butt plug. While it's pretty, it's also obvious. It does, however, fit into the zipper pocket of my (admittedly large) purse, which is perfect for taking him along to see the Companion. Both he and I were a little daunted by the size, but it was just small enough to be inserted comfortably, and big enough to press in all the right places.

We joked that the almost steely-oily looking surface (it does NOT feel oily, just looks it) would be excellent in cyberpunk roleplay.

This toy performs remarkably well for being such a simple thing. The tip's length allows you to move it in and out a bit, stretching and preparing the way for the full girth of the bulbed end. You can move slowly and leisurely until your bum is prepared to go over the final hill and oh my. The yielding softness allows your muscles to move and clench around it, feeling far more realistic than hard plastic or glass plugs, and less invasive. While it occasionally moved on its own for me in slightly annoying ways, it also had its moments where it moved for me JUST to the right spot.

Walking around with it in was difficult, but not because of discomfort, it was just too much sensation for my brain to handle that and work my legs at the same time.

Care and Maintenance

Being silicone, this is one of the easiest to clean toys I've owned. Boil it, throw it in the top rack of the dishwasher, use silicone-friendly cleaner or simple soap, whatever you like. The surface does pick up an amazing amount of lint, so even if it's been cleaned you'll want to wash it off before use, and since silicone toys should never be stored touching each other, wrap it in something (I use fleece scraps) before placing next to other toys. Use a non-silicone based lube, preferably water-based that has the thickness desired for anal play.

The plug was packaged in a large, very obvious plastic blister package container. It did have a bit of information on how the toy itself (so many toys don't now a days!) but it is also much larger than the toy, so I would not use it to store it.

Personal comments

This guy here is now a favorite of mine to use with a partner. The increase in sensation, the pressure against his cock which in turn was more likely to press against my g-spot, and the wickedness of the entire thing made my orgasms so much more intense.


This butt plug was my partner's first experience using an anal toy on a woman, and since he so recently became comfortable with exploring the area, I was worried he'd be apprehensive. Once he got over the initial shock at the size, he merely looked like he was uncomfortable... until he started pressing the toy into me, a little at a time, and saw me squirm and whimper. It is not the biggest plug I've used, but the biggest one I've felt COMFORTABLE with, so it was a learning step for both of us. I was also concerned with the size, since he is rather large himself, that I'd feel too full- no danger here. It was occasionally overstimulating, making me quite incapable of being an active participant and instead just lying there making noise and flailing about eagerly, but that just proves how fantastic it is.

Using it alone, it was easy enough to get in, although I tend to have problems in that area because of short arms and a long torso, and I found I could roll around in bed with ease. The base is far too thin (and my hands too slick with lube) for me to do more than press on the base to feel the pressure, but plugs aren't meant to move really.
