Mr. Softee - dildo by Doc Johnson - review by Spilock

Mr. Softee: Cheap. Stinky. Awesome. (You get what you pay for)

A girthy and squishy dildo that will leave your insides craving for more. However, buy cheap and you get cheap. Sil-A-Gel included.
Good size, super soft and pliable to make that size easier. Cheap.
Strong odor, sil-a-gel can cause problems. Cheap.

The Intro
Have you ever thought to yourself, "I sure could use a wonderfully fulfilling and flexible dildo with the smell of strawberry shower curtains that can fill a room with powerful odor!"? Well, if you ever have then this marvelous stinky dildo may be right up your alley.

The Size and Design
Mr. Softee is a rather hefty toy, weighing in at 1lb, 1.75" diameter, and 7.5" in length. There are definitely other toys out there that are larger and heftier, but this one still requires a warm up before using. In terms of its design, it's relatively realistic, but in an exaggerated way. There's a head and a ton of veins, which make for a fantastic texture when in use. Not truly realistic, but it feels great nonetheless!

The Material...and Sil-A-Gel
Remember that strawberry shower curtain smell I mentioned? Therein lies the strongest negative with this dildo, the material. EF lists the material as rubber, but more precisely it's rubber with Doc Johnson's proprietary 'Sil-A-Gel' additive. This formula is unique to Doc Johnson, and it has absolutely nothing to do with silicone, so don't let that deceptive marketing trick fool you. The SIL in the name stands for Safe Ingredients List, meaning that all of it's components are FDA approved for use on your body. The additive is anti-bacterial and the intended purpose of it is to fight off any bacteria.

The problem of that in short is that it's actively anti-bacterial. Your orifices all have bacteria in them. Therefore, you might experience technical difficulties during use. Some people online have received yeast infections after using Sil-A-Gel toys, though we haven't personally experienced that with ours. To be fair though, we used a condom on it.

Otherwise, this is a regular old rubber dildo. Nice and bendy, significantly more so than any other rubber toy I've owned. That also means it's plenty squishy and will help your orifices accommodate its considerable girth. But it also has the standard downsides of rubber: impossible to sanitize and a smell that fills the room after it's left it's box. Some people have blamed this smell on the Sil-A-Gel component, but Sil-A-Gel itself is *supposed* to be odorless. I would agree that it's odorless, as this toy simply smells like the other rubber toys I've owned.

The Performance
Now that the materials are out of the way, let's talk about how Mr. Softee performs in bed, and whether or not he walks away with a limp.

Overall, I would say that Softee was a great performer, and the limpiness didn't cause any problems for us. He's thick enough that you're going to feel him no matter what, and get the job done. But there's enough bend to it that he just slides into all the right places. It's really quite spectacular, as was this toy!

However, Mr. Softee is based on the design of 'The Original' by Doc Johnson, which means there isn't a flared base. As a result, do not use this toy anally unless you would like to have it disappear into your intestines. At which point a trip to the ER would be made.

Care & Cleanup
As mentioned earlier, Mr. Softee is a rubber dildo albeit with a Sil-A-Gel additive. You still need to clean the toy thoroughly with hand soap and water after using, or your favorite brand of toy cleaner. Because it is porous, it's impossible to sanitize and should not be shared with a partner, especially not without a condom. Because of that, I personally think the Sil-A-Gel point is moot. It doesn't actually help the toy stay clean, but it can cause problems with your insides. So it shouldn't be a part of the toy!

While I do applaud Doc Johnson for trying to do something to increase the value of cheaper materials, I do not feel that Sil-A-Gel is the right answer. I can only see it as a marketing point that makes it sound like it's a silicone derivative, considering how poorly that component of it performed.
The Conclusion
Overall, we were satisfied with Mr. Softee. We intended to buy him as a testing tool, to see if having a softer material would allow my wife to take larger toys with greater ease, and the result for us was a resounding yes. The toy is a fantastic design, but the materials do leave a lot to be desired. We intend on moving up to Johnny VixSkin as soon as this review is out, and will report back with how that experience goes. However, if money is an issue but you would still like a silicone toy comparable to this, you can find a silicone version by getting The Original from the Platinum line.

Mr. Softee was a great time, and one that we thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with. However, the rubber and Sil-A-Gel materials left a lot to be desired, as expected. But if you are ever interested in seeing if you can handle such a sizable yet soft dildo, the price for this one can't be beat!
Follow-up commentary
Mr. Softee is still a fantastic toy, and one that we would use fairly often. However, we've since gotten the Johnny and thus this one has hit the backburner. That's not to say it's bad by any means, but just not as good as some of the options we've gotten since we originally purchased it. Then again, we also purchased it to get an accurate size estimate of the Johnny before buying that toy, and it worked pretty well for that purpose.

    Really nice review. I still like my Mr Softee despite his scent.
  • Spilock
    Thanks for the comment, it was actually your review of Johnny and Mr. Softee that motivated me to snag this. We'll be getting the Johnny soon and thought this would be a good tester for it, since it's similar in size and give, but much much cheaper.

    Also, note to future commenters: I made this review as a sort of hybrid between the Basic and Extended styles, so feel free to comment on whether or not you think it worked out!
