Triple Ripple Anal Assault

If you are looking for a CHEAP, fun addition to your collection, look no further. Horrendous material, and the design could be much better, but it does provide some wonderful sensations. The lack of a neck makes it horrid for extended wear, as I can almost guarantee it will slip out. I recommend this as a warm up for anal sexperts, but do not think beginners should start with this!
Wonderful Sensations
Perfect Firmness
Very Little Drag
Rubber is bad material choice
Not for Extended Wear
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This toy is not meant for beginners! Definitely meant for anal use, this toy is wonderful for stretching things before moving to bigger (if you have bigger) toys. If one was so inclined, they could definitely use it vaginally, but I can't speak for its abilities in this arena. Could certainly be used alone, but not so great for extended wear and I wouldn't really call it a plug, more of a girthy probe. One can definitely use this for some shallow thrusting, but since it is a flawed plug design you won't be able to get very deep. No real safety precautions to speak of, as the base is flared perfectly for anal (You won't lose this easily at all) and would have to SERIOUSLY stretch your sphincter to lose this inside.

Material / Texture

Doc Johnson, COME ON!!!!!! Rubber? Seriously? Everyone knows Doc Johnson has some wonderful designs, but the biggest flaw this toy has is the material! Rubber, is porous and isn't entirely sanitizable. The Doc Johnson Triple Ripple had a strong rubber smell when first opened, but after a cleaning and first use, the smell is barely noticeable. If you DO use rubber toys, it is a great idea to always use a condom, but you MUST use a condom before sharing with partners (or switching from anal to vaginal use). This material is compatible with silicone or water based lubes. This toy in particular has a nice firmness to it; hard enough to fill you up, but soft enough to give a little when you need it. There is no texture to speak of with this particular toy, and it has very little drag (none when lubed).
    • Light odor
    • Porous
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

In the picture, you can get a feel for the size and design of this particular toy against my go-to comparison item. I think the "ripples" are wonderful and provide great stimulation, and step up between bulges isn't too large. I loved the size, but the major flaw in design (outside of being made of Rubber Again, Doc Johnson... read the reviews and take the advice!) is that the neck isn't small enough in comparison to the largest bulge to hold it in place for extended wear.

The manufacturer measurements are spot on. They don't disclose the diameters for the smaller bulges, but have no fear, MrWilly can handle 6th grade math!

The diameter (girth) of the first bulge (smallest/tip bulge) is 1.27324 inches.
The diameter of the second bulge is 1.4324 inches.
The diameter of the largest bulge is 1.751 inches.

Insertable length is 4 1/2 inches, but you will probably have to deal with it slipping out, so take the insertable length with a grain of salt.


I loved the bulges, it really gave me a great feeling of fullness, and definitely stretched things some. The lack of a "neck", so to speak, really sucks. Great for warming up for larger toys, or if you can position yourself right you could definitely wear it while watching porn/driving/participating in other seated activities. No functions to speak of, no batteries, and no buttons. No noise to speak of, though I'm sure if one was lubed up and thrusting away with it there could be some sounds, but nothing out of this world.

Care and Maintenance

For care, I recommend always using a condom or toy cover. I keep it in a ziploc bag, simply to keep it from letting nasties get to my better toys. Easy to wipe down, but not entirely sanitizable. Bleach could react negatively with the material, so I would only use HOT water with antibacterial soap, or spray it down thoroughly with your cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) of choice to clean it. Rubber is compatible with water and silicone based lubes, so your favorite of either should work fine. If you don't have a dedicated toybox/drawer you could hide this in a coat pocket or purse hanging in the closet, or even slip it into a shoebox (hell, it would even fit in a shoe).
    • Easy to store
    • Not entirely sanitizable


No pics of the packaging today, as I've had this toy for a few weeks and tossed the packaging. It came in the basic Doc Johnson snap-closed clear plastic, with a paper insert behind the toy. Simple packaging, but a little overboard with the amount of plastic used. No instructions to speak of, though it did have the funny "One size fits most" line. You won't be using this for gifting, though if you wanted to you could use it for storing this toy. The packaging didn't exactly scream "Hey, I go in your asshole" but anyone that has ever used a sex toy will not mistake this for anything else.

The plastic and paper are entirely recyclable at your nearest facility.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable


I loved it, though the toy slipping out while moving was horrid.
Follow-up commentary
I'm still not a big fan of the material, but after playing with this a few times I know how to "work" it better. It is wonderful for a full feeling, and definitely good for stretching if I decide to get thrust happy with other toys in my collection.
