The only - g-spot dildo by Doc Johnson - review by nori

Add resource

My Thumbalina; you're almost perfect.

This toy truly surprised me. Not only did it manage to hit my g-spot and look good in my harness, it also can be sterilized, and can hold heat! I found her to be very solid, and while that was a great feature for me, others may need a bit more squish to their toy. Overall, a great addition to my box. I can't find anything I don't love about this toy.
Firm/solid, 100% silicone, good for G/P spotting, O-ring compatible, body safe, can be sterilized
Firm/solid, not so discreet packaging,

extremely useful review


(title is a reference to Nightmare of You's Thumbalina)

This toy is marketed towards vagina-owners, as a way of pleasuring the g-spot. (I’ll tell you, it does a pretty bang-up job of that!) This toy is O-ring compatible and has a flared base, which is one of the biggest reasons I picked her out to begin with. My harness is a beautiful purple and black velvet, and I must say.. this toy looks gorgeous against the fabric of it. This toy would make for excellent strap-on play, for pegging, DP, or any other variations.

Since the shape of this toy is specifically made to hit a vagina-owner's G-spot, I can only assume it would also be an excellent candidate for a prostate-owner!

Material / Texture

This toy is made from 100% silicone, which according to Eden’s scale, gives this toy’s material safety a 10/10. That means that the toy is non-porous and has the ability to be sterilized by boiling. There was no scent to this toy, and after a quick rinse in warm water, it was ready to go!

I found this toy to be very smooth. I love to give my toys a little bit of a rubdown with my hands before I play. This one gave me a little friction when I tried to ‘jerk it off’ without lube, but with a drop of spit, slickened up easily. It doesn't have much give much when squeezed, but it bends pretty easily - almost 90 degrees, bouncing right back to it's original position! When using this toy vaginally, good lordy it felt good to clench around this toy. When in the hand, it doesn’t have much give and that’s so much more apparent when playing with this toy. This is definitely a solid toy, and it was very stimulating for me, especially when paired with a tiny vibrator pressed to the base of the toy.

I’ve been using toys for years now, so I didn’t have any difficultly with this one. Given that it is a solid toy, those of us a bit tighter might want to work up to this one.

Design / Shape / Size

This toy is a little bit on the smaller side, in terms of length. The Only is about six inches of insertable length and a half inch base. The 'thumb' of this toy protrudes from the toy and measures 4 and a half inches around, and gently tapers down towards the base. There was no problem finding my G-Spot with this toy, even though it would take me a bit of effort and maneuvering with other toys.

I initially found the shape of this toy to be very interesting, on the website it just looked sleek and pretty. I was initially drawn to it, because I am testing the waters with non-phallic shaped toys. When I first received the toy, it bore a striking resemblance to human thumbs. So I’ve decided to name her Thumbalina. The funniest part about that name? How accurate it is in describing how she pleasures you! For me, it's almost as if someone was pressing my G-spot like a button, with every little squirm and movement I made.

This toy isn't super discrete in packaging, nor in shape. Although it isn't the most phallic toy out there, it is still very clearly used for naughty reasons. I live with other people, so I keep this toy in the clam-shell packaging in my toy box.
    • Partner play
    • Whimsical / artistic


This toy exceeded my expectations. I wasn't expecting anything great in regards to g-spot stimulation, and was really just looking for another insertable toy to fill me while I enjoyed something buzzing at my clit, but this toy surprised me in such a great way. My first time trying the toy out with new batteries in my bullet? I was able to orgasm in 53 seconds. In my defense, I was really pent up! This toy is an excellent addition to my toy box.

It looks beautiful in my harness and is also nice and sturdy. It's not so heavy that it automatically points down with the weight of it, which is nice. I like a toy that can stand at attention for me.
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

This toy can be very easily cleaned with warm water and soap, or sterilized in the dishwasher/with boiling water. Just remember to be safe. If you're sharing this toy with a partner or are switching from anal to vaginal, use a condom or sterilize your toy.

I only need a drop or two of water-based lube, but if you are using this toy alone and without a condom, you could also use oil-based lubricant. Silicone lube, however, should be avoided at all costs. It could cause the silicone to start breaking down. For that reason, also keep silicone toys away from one another.

This toy can easily be stored in the packaging it comes in, that's where I keep mine.

This toy came in clear, clamshell packaging, and was extremely easy to open. This was a good thing, considering how fast I wanted to get at the contents! The clamshell opened up to display my ‘The only’ toy and the accompanying information slip. The front side of the slip contained a beautiful teal/purple graphic. It also listed the name of the toy and company (The only, Doc Johnson) as well as that it was phthalate-free, and made in the USA.

The back of the information slip reads: “It’s hypo-allergenic and easy to clean (top-rack dishwasher safe). It warms quickly to your body’s temperature and retains hear. It’s firm, yet flexible, durable, and has an amazing life-like feel. Odor-free and Phthalate-free. What could be better? It’s made to the exacting and consistent standards of Doc Johnson, the industry’s leader.’

It also lists the specifications in a neat little list. According to the package, this toy is: 'Designed for G spot massage, O-ring compatible, platinum grade silicone, hypo-allergenic, 100% phthalate free, warms to body temperature, life-like feel, easy to clean (top rack dishwasher safe), and made from the highest quality material.'

Eden, as always, sent this to me discretely. The package came from 'Web Merchants' and was a sent in a plain brown box, with plain brown tape.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative
Follow-up commentary
I don't like it as much as I originally did. I found myself wanting more girth as time went on. This is still an excellent toy for a firm G (or P) spotting toy, but it leaves me wanting more.

Would still give it a solid 4/5. But I don't turn to this toy as much as I used to.
