Good Enough to Conquer Dysphoria Blues

This is a realistic packer that looks and feels good enough to ease dysphoria. However, I wouldn't use it in a harness or for penetrative play.
Realistic look and feel, good size
Not good in harnesses, difficult to arrange without looking partially erect

extremely useful review


This packer, once you adjust to the weight of it, is great for frequent use. I have a packing strap, but have found that the Sailor doesn't hang well in it (more about that later), so I wear it in tight boxer briefs. It's excellent for reducing dysphoria — it looks realistic and passes any "squeeze test".

Because the Sailor One is silicone, it is body-safe. However, I've found it to be really not stiff enough for any kind of penetration. The shape also doesn't allow for comfortable penetration use in a harness. It is definitely not a pack-and-play as far as I'm concerned, but a good option for those looking for a basic, realistic-looking packer.

Material / Texture

Straight out of the box, the Sailor One smells weird like bubblegum, leaving a distinct scent on everything it contacts (which for me meant hands and underwear). After about six months and several washes, the smell has faded considerably — I can still notice it, but that may just be because I'm now hyper-aware of it.

The texture is a bit rubbery, as with most silicone toys I've encountered, but that's easily fixed with a sprinkle of cornstarch after every wash (see below for more), which smooths it out to a surprisingly skin-like feel.
When you squeeze the Sailor One, the overall feel is FANTASTIC, it is definitely realistic enough to soothe this trans boy's blues.

Design / Shape / Size

I have mixed feelings about the Sailor's design. As previously mentioned, I love the feel of it. The length of the shaft is maybe half an inch or so longer than what might best match my 5'1" frame, but that's not a big deal, and probably means that it's about right for most users, depending on personal preferences.

What is a big (literally) deal for me is the balls. They curve forwards into the shaft, leaving a flat back/base on the packer. I can see how this flatness might be helpful in terms of conforming well to the body, but the rounded front of the balls pushes the shaft forward, making it difficult to position without looking rather more excited than I want to appear.

Additionally, the firm inner core of the shaft (which I think is exactly what makes it feel so realistic on a squeeze test) seems to weight the shaft considerably in comparison to the balls, causing it to fall forward unless tightly secured.

The realistic appearance of the Sailor does make it difficult to pass off as anything else, if that's a concern — anyone who saw this in a dresser drawer would be hard pressed to not think "Well, that's a penis."
    • Realistic


My main complaint about the Sailor has to do with the balls pushing the shaft forward, as mentioned above. This, combined with the front-weighting, means that just hanging it in a simple o-ring packing harness is unlikely to position this packer well for most users.

That said, it stays well in tight boxer briefs throughout the day (with the occasional adjustment), and tamps down dysphoria considerably, so this is absolutely not a purchase I regret.
    • Comfortable

Care and Maintenance

Caring for the Sailor is pretty standard. I wash it after every use with soap and warm water, and then use a large blush brush to dust it with cornstarch, which helps it feel less like rubber and more like skin, as well as keeping it from picking up quite as much lint and dust.

Also, I would avoid using this packer in any kind of harness — while it is technically compatible in terms of size and shape, the relative weights of the shaft and balls can cause tearing at the seam between them, which is where most harnesses hit.
    • Easy to clean


The Sailor came wrapped in a plastic bag in a small cardboard box, with its picture and some basic product details on the outside. I probably wouldn't use the box for storage, as the thin cardboard could easily tear and the picture makes it less than discreet.

When I bought the Sailor, I wanted a packer that would look and feel realistic enough to ease my bad dysphoria days, and I'm happy to say that's what I got.

    Thank you for sharing. Sorry the balls were heavier than you were anticipating and pushed the penis up.
