Goodhead, Not Greathead.

If you're a beginner looking for a sleeve to try out, this is a great, affordable option. It's got a nice internal texture, is compact, easy to use, and versatile. It has a lot of great qualities to it. However, it's difficult to enjoy this toy thanks to the overwhelming scent of the material. This one should have been called Goodhandjob 'cause my face isn't going near this one again!

Goodhead helping head penis sleeve by Doc Johnson is a small, affordable way to enhance your oral experiences.

Designed to help an average blowjob turn into a good blowjob, this sleeve is compact and easy to use! Slide it down your partners erect penis and use in a stroking motion while your lips and tongue explore the upper portion of his member. If you're accustomed to using your hand at the base of your partner's penis, this won't be too much of a foreign act. This easy to use toy helps create a buffer for those that can't deep throat by only allowing your mouth to go so far down the shaft. This is especially helpful when your partner is above average in size, but might not work the best for oral play if your partner is smaller lengthwise.

Aside from oral play, this toy can be used with a partner to help enhance your basic handjob. The inside of the sleeve is lightly textured and adds extra stimulation. The short length makes this a great choice for someone who's on the smaller side and might not have enough length to make it work while having oral sex preformed. This sleeve isn't thin enough or long enough to be used on the penis during penetrative sex, so using as an aid for other sexual activities is best.

For solo use, this sleeve works okay for jazzing up your masturbation sessions and is a very inexpensive option if you're just starting out. If you're a total beginner looking for a very basic sleeve, this will give you a small taste of whether or not purchasing a more expensive masturbator would be worth it.

Since there are no internal working parts with this sleeve, taking into the tub or shower is totally acceptable! Pair that with the fact that this sleeve can be used with silicone-based lubricant and it's sure to make your water adventures that much more pleasurable.

Material / Texture

Goodhead is made from TPE which rates a 6/10 on the Eden Material Safety Scale for being hypo-allergenic, latex free, and phthalates free. This material is somewhat porous and can't be disinfected. Sharing is highly discouraged, but since this toy is so inexpensive, it's easy enough to just purchase another one.

The material is translucent, you can slightly see through the sleeve, but the interior texture makes it seem distorted when trying to look through it. Just sitting there, it almost looks as though it has a smokey-clear appearance to it, but the wider it's stretched, the easier it is to see through it.

The material is very squishy and plush; easily stretching to accommodate even girthy penises. No matter how wide it's stretched, it bounces back to the original shape as soon as it's removed. It doesn't stretch as well lengthwise and won't remain stretched in that direction. This is meant to be stretched width-wise only.

The surface has a decent amount of drag to it, easily picking up lint and dust, but also leaves a strange oily feeling to your hands. If left on a blanket, piece of paper, or similar surface for even a few minutes, it leaves an oil stain. Always make sure that this toy is washed and put away directly after use to ensure nothing gets stained.

The external texture is totally smooth, it's the inside of the sleeve that provides the texture. The inside has a beaded feel to it; six rows with five bumps in each row. Though it looks intense, the material is so plush that it's not overly stimulating. This would be a suitable texture for someone who prefers light stimulation, or is just starting out with sleeves/masturbators. If you find that you don't care for the texture, the sleeve can easily be turned inside out, having the texture on the outside and the smooth surface on the inside.

Along with the oily feeling of the toy, is the overwhelming smell. When first opening the package you are overcome with a very sweet, chemical smell. After washing several times, the scent is still just as strong. After leaving to air out for over a week, the scent is still just as strong. While this might not be a huge bother to the receiver, it can easily give a headache to the giver since their nose is so close to the toy during oral use. The sweet smell lingers on the skin, even after washing several times. It's difficult to appreciate this toy with the overpowering scent that comes along with it.

There was also a light taste to it. Very similar to the way it smells, but didn't linger like the scent did.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

This is a very small, open-ended sleeve. It's a small cylinder with a bunch of nubs inside of it. From the top or bottom, the negative space inside the sleeve has a hexagram appearance to it thanks each nub coming to a very gentle point.

The sleeve as a whole is a very non-intimidating size, perfect for a beginner, but discreet enough for any toy user. It's very compact and easy to handle, and shouldn't attract much attention, even if the toy were to be left out. A great travel companion, this sleeve should fit into a small purse, backpack, briefcase, etc. without taking up much space, and would be perfectly suitable to fly with.

Because this toy has so much stretch to it, it will fit a wide range of penis sizes, even those that are above average. The biggest concern with size is that this toy might not be as useful with oral sex if you're on the smaller side. While that would be an issue, it would still work in other ways.

    • Discreet look/design
    • Will fit most people

Care and Maintenance

Goodhead can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water or your favorite sex toy cleaner and leave out to dry. This toy can't be sterilized in any way, and since it's somewhat porous, if you plan on using with more than one person, purchasing an additional toy would be the best choice.

This toy is compatible with both silicone- and water-based lubricants.

The packaging that comes along with this toy does not double as storage, so finding another option is important. Since this toy causes oil stains and attracts dust and lint, it's important to keep it in its own container. Using a plastic sandwich bag would be one of the better options.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging it comes with is not discreet, but is very basic. It's a cardboard hanger with a plastic case that surrounds the toy. The cardboard has some information on it, but it's not important to keep it, it can be recycled along with the plastic piece. The very obvious packaging makes it so that it wouldn't be suitable as a gift unless given in private.

    • Recyclable


When this toy first came to Eden I was really excited since it was such an inexpensive toy that seemed like it would work well for us. Oral sex is a pretty common activity here, and I'm always looking for something to make it a little more exciting.

For Christmas, I gave my husband a bunch of sex toys, and this was the one he wanted to try first! We opened the package and were instantly overwhelmed with the horribly strong, sweet smell of the TPE. After washing, the scent was still there but I tried not to let it bother me. I put the sleeve in place and started pleasuring my husband. The toy moved easily with the help of a little water-based lubricant and seemed to be enjoyable. I instantly had a headache from the strong odor, but did my best to not show it.

There wasn't a lot of noise that came from using this toy, but there was a light, slurping sound. It was loud enough that it could be heard in our room, but not loud enough that you could have heard it through a closed door.

While he seemed to be enjoying it at the time, he said after that the nubs weren't firm enough to give him the pressure and stimulation he was hoping for. While it was a little something extra for the moment, it wasn't good enough for either of us to continue using it, especially since the odor is still there, over two months later.

The idea of this toy is great, it's nicely compact, and makes a great non-intimidating toy if you're just starting out. However, because of the material type, I don't see this one being used very often in our house.
Follow-up commentary
Sadly, I have since thrown this toy away. The sickly sweet smell was just too much for me to handle. If my husband had found it stimulating I would have considered trying to get over that fact, but it wasn't as exciting for him as he had hoped either. It's inexpensive, so I wouldn't say it's not worth trying at all, but there are too many cons for me to recommend this product to someone else.

    Shoot! We've got this on the way. I'm afraid about the strong odor. I think I'll have the same problem you had with it. Sorry it didn't work for you. Great review!
  • PropertyOfPotter
    Hey Melan!e!

    Try washing the sleeve and leaving it out at least for a few hours before using. That might help with the odor a little bit.

    Thank you. Seems very inexpensive. I will probably end up getting this one, since it's easily concealable and convenient
