extremely useful review


The Big Guy, by Doc Johnson, is a very impressive plug. While its size is intimidating at first, with a little practice a novice like myself was able to take the end rather well anally. The trouble is the bulbous knot toward the base, which can be overcome fairly well by a more experienced user like my partner. With a little building up (and a little wine!) I was able to take in the knot with a little help from my partner. Unless you're balancing this plug upright on its base and sitting over it, it may be difficult to use solo. The Big Guy is definitely a toy you should use with a playmate. While half the fun is conquering this big slick beast of a plug, the other half of the fun is watching it glide into your playmate and seeing them slowly stretch over that big knot. However, both a novice like myself and my very anally experienced partner have agreed that part of the problem is keeping this plug in for more than a few minutes. Due to its delightfully slick texture, with a muscle contraction, this plug can definitely plop out in a hurry unless its strapped in.

Holding toy

I would like to add that The Big Guy also works fantastic vaginally. The very smooth texture and shape of the tip makes it easy to glide in and out and the knot might intrigue those somewhat interested in a kind of puppy play. For a petite to moderate sized gal, The Big Guy plugs the vagina even well enough to hold in fluids and can stay in much longer than it can in the bum.

Material / Texture

Doc Johnson only uses the best materials in their toys, so it's no wonder that The Big Guy isn't any different. Boasting on the packaging this plug is made of premium platinum silicone, it really is a fantastic material for using in any part of the body. Fresh from the package, this toy has no smell or taste. One should still wash the toy before use though. Its rubbery-feeling texture will cause anything and everything to stick to it, so be careful to store it properly and not to leave it laying around. Hair, lint, dust, loose strings- anything will stick to this guy! Washing The Big Guy before each use is quick and simple with some warm water and soap. The material is non-porous, so there won't be an issue with lingering germs. If you really want to be extra safe, use a mild disinfectant and rinse very well with warm water. It's best to use a water-based lubricant with this toy, which with its ultra sleek shape and material will help it glide in and out feeling very natural. The Big Guy is firm with a slight give when squeezed and just bendy enough to maneuver, but not give out when being pressed roughly against a tight opening. This ultra high-quality silicone is the ideal material loved by both beginners and experts in the sex toy field.

Design / Shape / Size

The shape/design of The Big Guy by Doc Johnson can appeal to many that are interested in a more filling plug, but due to its delightfully enormous size, this toy may be more suited to those slightly more experienced in anal play. While I, as a novice, was eventually able to fully utilize The Big Guy with some patience and practice, I would still recommend beginners start with a plug that has at least a smaller knot above the base for the sake of comfort and safety. The Big Guy is a beautiful toy and the bright bold blue version adds a nice splash of color that seems playful and fun. Its shape may not be very human-like, but the smooth tip does resemble the feeling of a head when entering either hole. Again, its shape could possibly resemble that of a canine if one is looking for some make-believe puppy play. The Big Guy is simply made of silicone, so it's fine enough to travel and won't appear in scans, but its shape and size is anything but discreet if you expect anyone to rummage through your things.

The Big Guy by Doc Johnson is an incredible toy for both men and women. As an anal plug, its smooth silicone texture glides in and out very easily, while offering a challenging knot a couple inches down that will appeal to mainly intermediate and experienced users. This toy also works great as a vaginal plug for petite to moderate sized women that gives a very full feeling, doing well to rest snugly and comfortably with the base against the woman's lower lips. Because silicone can absorb temperature, running this plug under very warm or cold water can also make for some realistic or fun and kinky play. It's so easy to clean, putting it up or pulling it out for play is quick and won't hinder the mood. The only small trouble with The Big Guy is how easily it might plop out when it's well lubricated if the user clenches any muscles if it's not strapped in.

Care and Maintenance

The Big Guy by Doc Johnson is very easy to care for. All you need is to clean it with soap and warm water and you're done! The only part of the toy that needs an extra cleansing is toward the base where "Doc Johnson" is etched into the material. Be sure to rub soap over this part with warm water and your finger to keep residue from building up in the letters. This toy is dishwasher safe (top rack only) but hand washing is so fast and easy, I recommend it. Storing it in the original packaging is ideal because the plastic package can sit flat on its back and will protect this plug from attracting the bits of dust, hair, lint, etc, that might otherwise easily stick to its silicone material when left idle. If the original packaging seems bulky, this toy can be stored in a box or bag but should be washed or rinsed before use. Some silicone materials might cling together when touching for long periods of time so consider keeping The Big Guy separated from your other silicone toys with a cloth or another material. Thankfully, this plug is made of a very non-porous material so scented/flavored lubricants and residues won't be absorbed and can be easily washed away.

Clean up
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Big Guy by Doc Johnson comes in a pretty simple plastic package that pries apart and fits back together keeping it safe from dust and is an ideal storage container. The package itself is a clear plastic with an indention to fit the plug perfectly. The colorful design of the front is attractive and the back features many details about this plug's high-quality silicone. The back also features a basic description of the toy in 6 different languages. The package of The Big Guy is attractive enough featuring no people or nudity and would make for a great gift for men, women, and couples.

    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
    • Very informative


When my partner told me he ordered The Big Guy, I was a little worried. The name sounds intimidating and I'm still new to using anal plugs but when the box came in the mail, my partner and I were both running to the bedroom to tear it open. I felt a little relieved when we pulled out of the package and opened it and I got to wrap my fingers around its shape. Still, I knew that knot was going to be trouble for me.

To relax me and ultimately relax my body so I could take that beautiful blue beast in my fairly fresh tight hole, my lover pampered me with some fancy cheese and red wine. It wasn't long before he was rubbing the smooth tip of The Big Guy up and down through my lips to my small ass- he was very excited to see me stretch. With a little lube and after probing my ass with a finger or two, my partner slowly started working the toy in. I was very pleased at how smooth it feels, making it easy to take in those first couple inches before the thick knot. It felt natural, a lot like when a lubed-up cock is entering you, so I really liked that. My partner tried pushing the knot through but with the resistance and my wincing, we knew we needed to wait and try again but the night wasn't over!

Since we were all in for trying out our new toy and was having a fun romantic evening thus far, it was his turn. My handsome lover is much more experienced at anal play than I am, so stretching over the knot wasn't going to be a problem. After a quick rinse and some new lube, I perched on my knees between my lover's legs and warmed him up for The Big Guy by dipping one, then two, then three of my fingers into his anus while hovering over him to pleasure him orally so he could relax. My partner is more along the lines of an experienced user of anal toys, so this seemed almost easy for him. With a gentle push, the knot popped right into him and he had all of The Big Guy inside. He really enjoyed that 'full' feeling and enjoyed having it left in him while I finished the blowjob I had teased him with earlier. However, when his hips started bucking just as he was cumming, The Big Guy shot out of his clenching bum like a little blue rocket into the sheets! (You know how hard it is to laugh when you have a cock in your mouth?!)

So the night progressed, and with a little more wine, I found myself being pummeled by The Big Guy once again- but this time, my lover was using it vaginally. This is where I was really having fun. It was a tight fit still but once that knot sort of "ploops" inside of you, oh that's heaven. We actually got pretty frisky and filmed this- I laid on my back and used both hands to spread my lips apart so we could see just as the knot slips in and watch my hole stretch just as The Big Guy is slowly pulled out. Watching this the next day just got us excited and we went at it again.

By the next day when we tried again, I had had enough practice stretching that my partner felt I could probably take the knot in my very tight hole, that is, if I was brave enough. This time we tried things a little differently. My partner slowly stretched my bum with his fingers while we were having sex, then flipped me to lay on my tummy so he could slide his cock into my bum. After having anal with my partner for some minutes, he felt I was gaping enough to try The Big Guy again. He pushes in up to the knot where we have resistance again. My mate kept pressure against my hole with the knot and we discussed whether or not we should try a little harder. I was very horny at this point and had that dizzying animal-like desire to be ravaged from all this play, so I ended up begging for it. The Big Guy popped into me and I know I squealed like a girl, but after my body relaxed around the base it felt so nice.

My partner rolled me over and just began to have at me again but...I coughed and out shot The Big Guy into the bed! That's when we agreed, we need something to strap it in for next time. Aside from our plug randomly turning into a comical blue bum-rocket, we really enjoyed The Big Guy. We've since used it multiple times, mostly as training to stretch and gape my fresh tight ass and for fantasy role play. We think this toy can help stretch and spark some creativity in folks, like it did for us, so we definitely recommend giving The Big Guy a shot.
