Um, is it in?

This is the most perfect beginner anal toy I have found. The only problem for me is that I am not a beginner. I can't really use this at all because it is too small to be enjoyable. The shape of this is still one of my favorites. It's completely gradual which makes it an easy to toy to take your time with and stay comfortable.
Amazing shape
Silky silicone
Too small for more advanced users
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is a very small anal plug or probe from Cal Exotics. This is made for beginners in size. Because of this, it is really only suited to anal use. It isn't big enough for vaginal use for most people. If you do use this between partners or orifices, please sterilize it or use a condom.

This has a smaller base then I am normally comfortable with, but it worked fine. I am a more advanced user than was intended for this toy. Beginners will find this base perfectly adequate. Additionally, the base is a great suction cup, you can stick this to a flat surface and expand the positions you use it in.

Material / Texture

This is made from a great silky smooth silicone. It's firm enough to make using it easy, but it is flexible enough to bend to your anatomy which I think is the perfect combination for anal toys. I have anal toys made of very plush materials, and they are frustrating to use. This doesn't have that problem at all. It retains it's shape, but will flex.

This had no odor or taste from the package. Silicone never does which is another reason why I love it. Also, silicone is 10 on EF's safety scale. It doesn't have latex or pthalates.

The L'amour is untextured completely which I prefer in anal toys. This is another reason that I feel that this is the perfect beginner plug.
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

I LOVE the design of this. It gradually moves you to the larger shape without and ridges or abrupt bulges. In an unflattering note, my boyfriend said this looked like a cow tongue. I think it doesn't really look like much of anything. I do love how it starts slim and moves gradually into the bulge. It is my favorite shape for anal toys.

This toy is small. Which is the only problem I had with it really. It wouldn't stay in because I am used to much larger toys. This is 4" long in total with 3.5" insertable. At the very widest it is 4" in circumference.

This is so small and not realistic that you could throw this in s small bag in you purse with no problems.

This toy has no electronic parts, so you can take it into the shower, bath, or hot tub without any worries. It does have a fantastic suction cup. I can stick it to my hand and hold it upside down, and it stays.

If you had a tiny ring you could use this in a harness I think, but I don't have a harness to try it out with.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Silicone toys require a little bit of maintenance, but I think it is totally worth it. Silicone lubricants can not be used with this toy, nor can it be stored touching other silicone toys. Doing either of these things will degrade the material.

I store it in it's original packaging because it is small and works perfectly, but you could also store it in a ziplock bag, a cloth bag, or a sock.

Cleaning this toy is super easy because there aren't any crevices or ridges. Most times I spray mine with a toy cleaner and rinse it off, but every few uses I will fully sanitize all my silicone and glass toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This came in a small clear plastic box that was easy to open. You can see the probe easily through the plastic, so I wouldn't call it completely discreet. The package on the front and back refers to it as a probe, but it never actually says where you put it. Inside of the package, the toy sits in a plastic tray.

The box for this toy just fits it, so I use it for storage. I hate it when silicone toys come in packages that are much too large for the toy and thus are not useful for storage. I was very happy with the packaging on this.
    • Good for storage

Personal comments

This is the best beginner toy I have seen. I wish that I had found this as my first plug. It doesn't help me work up to the L'amour advanced at all, but it is still a fantastic toy.

Beginners should start with this toy every time. It's got the perfect gradual shape for working up to larger sizes, and it is an easy size to conquer.


Overall, I was disappointed with this toy. I bought the advanced one, but it was too much for me. I bought this one as a warm up for the advanced, but I can't even hold this one in. This isn't the toy's fault at all. There is an intermediate version of this, but EF doesn't carry it which is probably what I need.

I still love everything else about this toy. The size is my only problem.
Follow-up commentary
This is a great toy for beginners, but no matter how much I try, this is useless for me. It is just way too small. My partner's finger is bigger than this.

    Yeah this one probably wouldn't work for me since I'm no beginner.
