Tawny dong - dildo by Doc Johnson - review by Ashton

Tawny, you're my hero!

Definitely a great toy as long as you know what you're getting into hygiene wise and take good care of it. With proper care this toy won't let you down! It definitely can't be beat for the price.
The ridges are amazing, and the color is fantastic! I also love the low price and versatile size.
SO hard to get clean, can't be shared, can't be boiled, attracts fuzz like no one's business.

extremely useful review


This is a great dong for beginners and more experienced players alike. The Tawny dong has a very tight spiral of marvelous thin ridges that feel fantastic for vaginal play. It's firm but still a little "floppy" which means it can squeeze a little if the 1 1/2 inch diameter is a little much for you, and can bend deliciously around all your curves. The ridges stop about 1/2 inch from the tip for a smooth insertion.

Call me kinky, but one of the things I really love about jelly toys is being able to put them in my mouth afterwards for clean-up or have them stuffed in my mouth for some sexy foreplay. And nothing beats a dong in your mouth and a real cock from behind! This toy is 7 inches long and has just the right amount of "wiggle" which makes it a perfect toy to deep-throat or play with in your mouth, unlike glass toys that can chip teeth or don't have enough bend to go down your throat.

Unfortunately this toy doesn't have a flared base, so it's not a good idea to use it anally.

Material / Texture

This is a jelly toy (sciency name: polyvinyl chloride) and it has that rubber-like smell that you always associate with a jelly toy. It's definitely got some wiggle to it, but it's a firm consistency. The taste is definitely all jelly - very rubbery. While jelly does have some drawbacks - it can't be sanitized, and thus can't be shared without a condom, and jelly attracts every lint and hair that ever existed - it does have the great benefit of being able to be used with water based OR silicone lubes - so you can totally enjoy this in the bath.

Design / Shape / Size

This is an overall great design. I love that the ridges are very regular and uniform, so you have almost all 7 inches of repetitive sensation to really help push you over the edge. It's a really pretty and feminine pink color. With a seven inch length and a diameter of about an inch and a half, it's a comfy fit for most. Combine all that and it makes for a very friendly and non-intimidating toy for the beginner.

Oh, lord, was this amazing! The ridges were, for me, the perfect size and perfectly spaced. I got sooo much sensation from them that I had to slow down and keep it slow . . . but I was glad I did! Unlike some toys with irregular bumps or waves, the fact that these repeated precisely gave me the predictable and repetitious sensation that I love, letting me build and build and build until I finally climaxed. The jelly is a little difficult to grip when you throw lube into the mix, but overall performed really well. This is definitely going into my regular rotation, especially when I need some slow, relaxing me time in the tub - this is perfect for that.

Care and Maintenance

The only bummer about the whole toy - cleaning it. Unfortunately the tiny ridges are somewhat of a pain to clean. It takes some diligence to get this toy spotless. You can't boil it (jelly doesn't stand high temps) so you have to clean it with warm water or toy wipes. A good solution for me was to just use it in the tub and give it a good spray with my relatively high power shower-head. Just remember that clean is not the same as sanitized - always use a condom if you're sharing this toy!

The great thing about jelly is you can use just about any lube with it! Silicone or water based, it doesn't matter.

Remember to keep this in your under-the-bed box or in a drawer - you don't want it getting too hot from the sun, as it will absolutely melt. Also beware of just chucking it in a box - if you throw in a vibe that gets relatively warm on top of it this could also cause some pitting or melting. Not to mention, the jelly WILL attract lint, hair, dust, and everything else. I store mine in a plastic bin with my other jelly toys under the bed.
    • Easy to store
    • Hard to clean


The lovely Tawny that the toy was named after graces the insert of a clear plastic case. It's shaped to fit the toy, so if you want to save it, the plastic is defintely a good way to store this toy and keep the fuzzies at bay.
    • Good for storage
