Great for Beginners

If you're looking for an affordable, quality toy and are new to the market, then I suggest trying this one out to see if you would like other toys. It's easy to care for, easy to store, and is the perfect size for beginners, or those who want to try something to spice up their sexual experience.

extremely useful review


I believe that the Translucence Dong is the perfect toy for a beginner. I requested the 7-1/2 inch dildo (19cm), and when opening my package, I realized immediately that this toy could fit a beginner looking for an affordable and quality toy. This toy is long, but skinny, so it's easy for insertion, whether vaginally or anally. The toy has flop to it, and it is very squishy to the touch, so that makes for easier maneuverability for insertion. I'd say this toy could be used in any given situation, whether it's to spice things up, or going solo.

This toy does NOT have a flared base, so you might want to be careful if you're going to use this for anal play, as there's a greater chance of 'losing' the toy. Personally, this toy was too thin for me, but it did provide a semi-full feeling when inserted. It's squishy texture provides enough give for anyone to insert this toy, whether they're a beginner, or an intermediate user. With that said, if you're a size queen or king, this isn't the toy for you. If you're looking for a toy that you can practice oral on, then I'd recommend it for that.

Material / Texture

The Translucence Dong is made from PVC as stated on the packaging, so if you're thinking of using this between partners, put a condom on it, because this toy cannot be sterilized due to porous material. This dildo is made to look realistic, and honestly, it doesn't, but it has a pronounced head (though not too pronounced), and along the body there are 'veins' for added texture. I couldn't feel these textures, but it might be useful for someone who has never tried toys before. This PVC toy is extra soft, and that makes for the ease in insertion, as well as a realistic feel. I do like the squishy feeling to the toy.

When I first opened the packaging for this toy, I noticed that it had a very distinct smell, as PVC usually does. The scent isn't too bad, and it's not overpowering, but it does smell like, well, rubber. After giving it a good wash, I first experimented orally with this toy, and I couldn't taste anything, so that's a plus if you're looking for a toy you can use for oral practice. If you do find it has a taste, put some flavored lubricant on it, and you should be good to go. If you're going to use lubricant, used water-based for maximum pleasure as stated on the package.

Texture: It has a pronounced head and some 'veins' for stimulation
Smell: Light rubbery smell as with all PVC products
Touch: Bendable, squishy, soft
Taste: Little to no taste

Note: When I took this toy out of the package, the material was relatively 'sticky' and it collected a lot of lint within the few minutes it was out. It is a lint magnet.

Design / Shape / Size

My opinion of the design is that it's made to look realistic, but it doesn't. I did like the design overall, but the toy could be a bit bigger for me. I was expecting this toy to be a bit thicker than what it is, and not the skinny toy I received. This would definitely be a beginner's toy. The size did nothing for me, but the shape itself did stimulate my G-spot.

I wouldn't say this toy is discreet at all. You can tell what it is just by glancing at it, so it's not suitable for travel unless you hide it somewhere. This toy has a pronounced head, and a veined shaft for more realism and extra stimulation.

    • Partner play
    • Realistic


This toy performed as it should, and the squishy texture of it made for easy insertion. I couldn't feel the veins in the shaft, but I prefer a larger toy anyway. The best thing about this toy for me, is the material —not that it is PVC, but because it is really squishy. I like the realistic feel of it due to the softness of the material. Due to the small size, I don't find this toy a great choice for those who are exploring intermediate toys.

This toy does not have a flared base, so it's not harness compatible, and it's not safe for anal, so try at your own risk. If you do use it for anal play, use a condom on it, as it's porous. This toy does not have a suction cup base either, it's just a simple dildo for a beginner or for warming things up in the bedroom or anywhere else. Overall this toy is great for the price.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

This dildo is fairly easy to care for, just wash it with soap and warm water, or a toy cleaner. This toy is PVC so it doesn't have the capability of being sterilized. It has ridges, so make sure you clean this toy well, to make sure you get all the grime off of it. No one likes a dirty toy!

This dildo comes in a clear clam-shell casing, so you can store it there, as it's easy to open and small enough where it won't take up a lot of room. Just snap it open and pop it in the casing after you wash it.

This material is best used with water-based lubricant, as stated on the package it came in.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This toy is packaged in a clam-shell clear plastic casing, and is easy to open and close. This package can be used for storage, but I would recommend you put it in a gift box because it doesn't come in one. On the back of the clam-shell package there are instructions of which lubricant is best suited for this product, and how to care for it.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

Although this toy was too small for my tastes, this could be bought by beginners as an inexpensive, but quality toy.


My experience with this toy wasn't very memorable, but I'm sure it could blow the minds of some. It has a very realistic feel to it, and it could be very stimulating to others. I would suggest this to someone if they wanted something affordable and if they were new to the toy market. As a person experienced with silicone toys, this toy didn't leave it's mark, so to speak.
Follow-up commentary
Honestly, the toy just didn't capture my attention well. The smell was off-putting and the material was just not up to par with my standards. I wouldn't buy this toy again if something happened to it.
