20 Minute Lover

The Softee Vibrating Dong didn't ring any bells and proved too limp to please me. If you like a smelly quickie then this one might be for you. The Softee is made with less quality but it is purple! Giant Purple People Eater has been stuck in my head the entire time I'm writing this! Sadly, I like the song better than the dong.
Fairly quiet and purple...
Fully functioned for 20 minutes, made from semi-porous material and it smells terrible!
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Softee Vibrating Dong is a realistic vibrator used for clitoral stimulation and vaginal penetration. There is no flared base so anal use would not be recommended. The Softee is exactly that soft and spongy to the touch.

Partner play is also easy with the Softee. Having the controller separate opens ones imagination for who’s going to be in control of what.

Though the size may be intimidating for beginners the flexibility makes this one a step up the ladder to larger toys.

Material / Texture

The Softee Vibrating Dong is made from a material called Sil-a-Gel which is anti-bacterial but it is also semi-porous. The dong is latex free and phthalates free.

This little gem has a vein texture on the top and a smooth underneath. The head is smooth as well with a ridge at the base. Though the texture may look impressive it isn't really noticeable during use. The material does have a lot of give to it but unfortunately the Softee has an almost sticky feeling to it. The dong has a glossy finish however the lack of quality shines through with unfinished or rubbed patches in several areas. The Softee Dong is extremely flexible.

The Softee has an extremely strong odor that is very overwhelming (in fact it almost made me ill when I first removed it from its packaging). The smell does not immediately wash away and it is so strong that it transfers onto your body after touching it. I can't tell you what it tastes like because this one ain't getting anywhere near my face!
    • Somewhat porous
    • Strong odor

Design / Shape / Size

Designed as a realistic vibrator the Softee Dong has a decent size of 1 1/2" in diameter and 7 1/2" in length. The motor is located towards the head of the toy and the cord is attached to the opposite end. The cord is glued into the shaft and there are already signs of chipping flecks and separation.

The controller is attached with a cord that is 26 1/2" long. It is smooth and designed to fit comfortably in your hand. There is a toggle switch for operating the on/off and 7 functions.

I won't be traveling with the Softee Dong. Despite it being fairly quiet it would be pretty hard not to realize what it was and even if you throw it in a bag the flight line may get a chuckle out of a big purple cock with a cord (not to mention what the dog sniffers would think they'd surely smell this one coming!)

The Softee seems like a bridge from beginner to advanced for size but the lack of quality in design and material make it less attractive.

Functions / Performance / Controls

There are 7 functions on the Softee Vibrating Dong - or at least there are supposed to be. The motor's location makes the most intense vibrations concentrated in the head of the vibrator. Unfortunately, with my first use of the Softee the controller worked for 20 minutes then malfunctioned. Now it works intermittently.

The controller itself takes 3 AAA batteries. Designed with a toggle switch to power on and off the toy you simply press the down part of the toggle switch. To turn it back off you press it again. To scroll through the functions you simply press the top portion of the switch. There is a red light above the switch that lets you know when the toy should be operating. It flashes in time with the current function.

The seven functions are as follows:

1) Low steady vibes
2) Medium steady vibes
3) High steady vibes
4) Escalating vibes
5) Pulsations
6) Faster pulsations
7) High steady vibes (same as #3)

Then it begins again.

After 20 minutes on its first use the toggle switch broke. The on/off side of the toggle was the only one that worked. The Softee began with the first setting and changed through only the first three as I pressed the on/off side of the switch and then shut off. After removing the batteries and starting over the functions continued only with the on/off switch but it was reduced to only the first setting then off again. After several times playing with it the Softee has resumed functioning properly some of the time but it really is a hit or miss.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

The Softee Dong is easy to care for. It is recommended to use mild soap and water for cleaning and to wear a condom due to its porous nature and ability to be a lint magnet. Though I didn’t find lint to be a big problem the stickiness puts it in mindset.

You are safe using your favorite water based or silicone based lubes with the Softee.
This vibe should be stored in a bag or its packaging to help protect it.

The packaging is not discreet by any means. It is clear plastic showing off the colorful dong and controller. The cardboard insert included is also very attention grabbing with its colorful patterns. The back of the packaging shows the insert with basic use instructions and a bit about the vibrator. The plastic is easy open and I've kept mine to reuse for storage but it could easily be recycled as well.

When I first opened the Softee I was completely overwhelmed by the odor. It is extremely strong and washing the dong did not improve the smell at all. I was also surprised at just how squishy and flexible the Softee is. After accepting the fact that this bad boy is just gonna be smelly I plugged up the controller and cycled through the functions. They actually were much more impressive and pleasantly quiet which almost made up for the nasty odor. The Softee is not a size queen but may be too big for some. The texture was not an issue either. Being so soft and flexible it isn't even noticed during use. This flexibility makes it hard to enjoy internally as there's no stiff cock to grind on. The only saving grace could have been the vibration settings. They worked wonderfully for the first 20 minutes. Then the Softee died. At that point it was tossed aside and more accomplished toys had to take over.

Repeated attempts with the Softee only proved the quality is not here. The controller works when it wants too and the material smells too bad to even bother with the aggravations of this toy. All in all not one for me and I can't even recommend it for anyone.
Follow-up commentary
I can't find it in my heart to like this one at all. In fact if we could rate 0 stars it would be a negative! I pulled this back out of the box of doom tucked in the back of the closet just for the follow-up review and I wish I didn't. I don't like smelling like the Softee and the smell is powerful enough to kill any mood...nasty...I imagine had I not used the original packaging to keep it in some of the smell could have dissipated but it's just blah. The switch wasn't working properly again either. I had to fiddle with it to get it to turn on. There's just nothing to offer with this toy. I simply wouldn't recommend it at all.
