Why My Tush Didn't Do The Dip With The Dipper:

Overall I would just stay away from this toy. It truly was a major disappointment which is sad since I expected more from a company like Doc Johnson when it comes to anal toys, especially their 'Platinum' silicone line too. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone as it simply is not that exciting and a waste of space if you ask me.
- Silicone, very safe and easy to clean
- Good novelty paperweight?
- Lacking any sort of stimulation (nubs/bumps/etc)
- Boring and bland
- Not beginner friendly
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I got this toy via the mentor program and didn't have high hopes for it from the design and lack of stimulating parts (nubs, bumps, or even curves), and it seems I was right to have my expectations set extremely low.

The Dipper is suited for...well honestly I don't know who it would be suited for. The length makes this an unfriendly beginner's toy, and the bland design doesn't help its case either. It does however have a large base so you don't have to worry about it getting sucked in at least. This toy can't seem to decide if it's a probe or a plug. I don't think it's either...

Material / Texture

The Dipper is made of silicone. It has a pretty marbling to it, especially in the blue which is the color I picked. It's firm to the touch but has a tiny bit of give to the material; it is entirely smooth all over with only a single 'bump' an inch from the base which is boring and unappealing to say the least. Silicone is a very safe material however, so you don't need to worry about it getting the 'eau de ass' smell at least. The toy has a sort of fruity odor which isn't overly strong but noticeable if it's close to your nose at all.
    • Light odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Dipper is, as I said earlier, bland and boring. I couldn't get it all the way in (almost at the 6" mark I hit a wall of sorts as I usually do with toys this long), but the girth of the toy was very easy to slide in. I had no problems in terms of that. I'd say most beginners can handle the Dipper's girth but not length, it is far too long for most people unless you have a very deep depth anally. The toy is not discreet for travel in my opinion, most people will probably realize it's a sex toy. The girth at the widest point on the Dipper is about that of two thumbs put together so it's not that big at all, just long.

This toy got used twice and then got stuck at the bottom of my temporary toy box and has stayed there since. It is truly a dull and boring toy in my opinion. It may have been original but that didn't make it fun to use. I slid it in and out as fast as I could but to my disappointment it yielded no real stimulation. It was less stimulating than a prostate exam from a doctor to be honest. I really have little to say about it.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Because this toy is indeed made of silicone, you can wash it with warm water and anti-bacterial soap, a 10% bleach solution, the top rack of a dishwasher with no soap or boiled for 3 minutes. As well, due to it being silicone, you can only use water based lube with this toy. This toy attracts dust and lint quite easily so it should be stored in a dust free environment like a zip-lock bag and rinsed off before each use. Remember to use a condom if you plan to share this toy and properly sanitize it too.
    • Easy to clean
Follow-up commentary
Still hate this thing and never use it. The only real use it seems to have is it might be fun to bop someone on the head with it hehehehe. But in all seriousness, this has got to be the worst toy I own and I still hate it due to its blandness. It may get tossed out soon though as it's just something I don't see myself ever having a use for except for the above possibility which kinda sucks.

    Great review.
    I can only see this as a begging probe of sorts. I agree it does not look very stimulating.

    I liked the look but didn't figure it would be much by way of performance. Thanks for the review.

    I was considering this as a first anal toy, but will now go with something shorter! thanks!

    Thanks for the honest review. Sorry it didn't work out. I personally think it looks nice, but I like variety in my toys and even appreciate the simple ones. Sometimes something smooth and simple does the trick. Paired with the bulb at the top, it looks to me like it would be nice. Some toys can't please everyone, though. Hope you find what you're looking for!
