The perfect place to start!

Perfect for anyone looking to get into anal play. Once you let the Anal Starter air out and lose it's factory smell this is the perfect anal toy! Only drawback I can find is the lint magnet factor but as long as you wash it and use a condom during play you will have no issues!
Perfect size for beginners, pretty colors
Lint magnet, awful smell

extremely useful review


Well obviously the best way to use this toy is for anal. As long as you use a condom with this toy, it can be used vaginally as well. Be careful though, it's a rather tiny toy so the condom will be a bit on the loose side unless you can find smaller condoms. Trust me you want to cover this toy with a condom anyway because everything sticks to this thing! When I first got this, I washed it off easily; when I went to dry it all the lint from the towel was on it. Needless to say I had to wash it again and that time I let it air dry!

This is a really good toy for beginners like me. I'd be cautious for experienced users because the base is only slightly flared and I would be afraid of it being swallowed up.

I enjoy using this toy when I'm in the mood for some DP. The flared base also acts like a good suction cup if you can find the right surface for it to stick too. Using the suction makes for good hands free play. And it's so small it makes for a great travel buddy.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of Sil-a-Gel. It smells awful when you first open it, but that disappeared shortly after it aired out. It is smooth but it is kinda on the sticky side since everything and anything seems to stick to it. You have to be careful where you store it since it's a lint magnet! But Sil-a-Gel has some good properties, like it's anti-bacterial, latex and cadmium free, and non-toxic.

The toy looks rather real (if dicks where purple or green). I've had both the purple and green ones and I must say I look both color a lot. They are very vibrant and have a nice pearliness to it. The color makes for a very pretty toy.

This toy is a bit on the limp side. I would have rather it have been a little more firm so it would be a tad easier to insert. I found myself fumbling with it the first couple times I tried to use it but once I got the hang of it I no longer had an issue.

Design / Shape / Size

I think this is a great design for this toy. When I was shopping around for my first anal toy I decided on this one because it actually looked like a dick instead of all the other shapes they have out there. The size is great for beginners. The first time I used it, it actually hurt a little bit but It didn't take long for me to adjust to it. Since it is so small it is good for travel!

According to the description it can be used with a harness as well. I don't have a harness so I wasn't able to try it out.
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

Like I said earlier this toy is a magnet for anything and everything it touches. I keep it in a travel bag used for toiletries because a fabric bag would be a bad idea and the vinyl bag helps keep a good deal of lint off of it.

Fortunately it cleans extremely easy. A little soap and water with this toy really goes a long way. Be sure to let it air dry though. I learned my lesson the first time.
