And The Smell Lingered...

Good sized toy, easy to clean, good firmness- not too rigid or too floppy, not my favorite material for sex toys, but I always use a condom with it. I'd use it more often had the odd smell not lingered.
Great size, firm enough to fit, soft enough not to hurt during vigorous play
If it was made of silicone, or didn't smell it would be a much more appealing toy.

useful review
The Classic Dong is a great price, so I ordered it mostly due to that. I've had it for about two and a half years, and it still looks and feels the same as the first day, even having used condoms with it EVERY time, especially since it's occasionally shared. I was concerned with how it would handle condoms, due to the material it is made of (PVC), but none of them have bothered the surface. It's still just as pretty a color as it was when I ordered it, although the fuchsia is much brighter and pinker than the pictures make it look.

I've used both latex and non-latex condoms with good results as well. I've cleaned it with both toy cleaner and several different types of antibacterial soap, and had equally good results with of all of them, though they've done nothing to lessen that weird plastic PVC chemical smell. It is the first PVC toy I've ever purchased, and I have to admit, the smell that wafted out of the box when opened kind of turned me off to the idea of ever buying another PVC toy, and still, this is the only toy I have made from PVC.

So all of this time I've had the Classic Dong, it's been a pretty good, solid, reliable toy, but... it still smells horrid. I left it out for a long time in an open box exposed to air, and the smell has lessened, but never totally gone away. I don't use it as often as I would like to because of that actually. But for the price, and if you don't mind using a condom, it's a nice size, flexible enough to be comfortable, and firm enough not to flop all over the place.

I've played with it numerous times alone and with partners, and it always works very well. It's a good toy to use for those who may be a little worried about the bigger toys, and it's great for anal play, as it has a nice smooth shaft (just don't let go of it!!). One of my lovers described it as "filling, but not huge." I think that's a pretty accurate way to sum it up.
Follow-up commentary
Since I last reviewed this, it's actually caused a horrible allergic reaction to a lover, and she was just handling it... so it's been permanently retired. To those who are sensitive about getting rid of toys, I'll say that we found it a nice home on a farm. The value in pricing just didn't compete with me having to pump her full of antihistamines to keep her hand from swelling, needless to say, it cut that date short!!

    Great first review. Welcome to EF. If you are turned off by smells, as I am, then stay away from jelly and rubber toys, too.

    So is it very soft or somewhat stiffer?

    Smelly toys are a big turn-off for me as well.
  • SecretToyLover2
    Nice first review. Smell is definitely a problem with these materials. What a weird looking toy!

    @ScottA - It's stiffer, not very soft. The surface has some "give" to it.

    How big is it around? Can I use this with lube without deteriorating the material?
