Say Hello to my (VERY) Little Friend!

The Butt Banger from California Exotics may be small but it's a novel sleeve if you're in the market for something that's tight and feels good. Just be prepared to put some effort into care and maintenance.
Realistic feel, Tight, Internal ridges make for pleasant experience
High maintenance, May be a little short for most guys, Not discreet
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Ok, our review title is a little misleading since the sleeve itself isn't that small. Well ok, it IS small. But it's the Rumpelstiltskin-sized dangly bits that are going to make you snigger at this thing. If you can get past the fact that this is going to be the smallest realistic cock and balls you're going to come into contact with then there IS fun to be had here.

Must...resist...temptation... to turn this into a pencil sharpener...

Most of the appeal of the Butt Banger is going to be for gay, bi, or curious guys, more than likely playing alone. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to rule out other people & scenarios, it's just that due to the size and design of this it doesn't totally lend itself to couples play. Let's face it, as a generalisation straight guys are going to want a sleeve without the boy bits attached, right? If you're a guy whose girl wants to see you perform with another guy, this probably won't do the trick since it's only palm sized.

The 'butt' itself is extremely tight. In fact it's so tight that you're going to need to keep the lube (water-based!) to hand while you use this. When you're inside the ribbed passage it actually feels as though you've slipped into a real person's tight, virgin ass. The downside to this (for me at least) is that I've found this sleeve to be better suited for the end of a masturbation session. Naturally that's subjective, but in my experience this could actually be a little less tight and be just as pleasurable.

Material / Texture

This is the first masturbation sleeve I've tried. I expected it to feel plasticy/rubbery but it really doesn't. It's listed as being made of "New Supersoft material" which (for those interested and/or geeky) is actually thermal plastic elastomer (TPR-a mixture of PVC and silicone), which is made to mimic real skin. According to the blurb, "The high molecular density of these materials allows them to be flexible and resilient", and I'd say that's a very accurate description. The overall feel is very skin-like and is very soft, although there's no fleshy feel present. The best way I can describe the overall texture of this little fella is like this: If you relax your arm completely then reach across with one hand and feel your relaxed bicep, that's a fair approximation of the Butt Banger. I know that sounded strange, but you still tried it didn't you?

While this doesn't really feel as though you're holding some hot guy in your hands while pumping away at his little backdoor, it's definitely pleasant to the touch and the texture - both inside and out - adds to the overall experience.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The idea of this sleeve is that it's supposed to look like a guy's ass and package from the rear view. It does but you should be aware that the cock and balls are tiny. It is realistic looking but those boy bits are not the primary focus and are probably only there to heighten the "fantasy" that you're pumping into a guy's ass rather than a woman's.

Size wise, this is pretty small. Cal Exotics provides these official measurements:

5.25”x 3.25”x 4.5"

Most guys will pop out of the end of this sleeve if they want to go in all the way to the base of their cock. I'm about average but thick (like you needed to know that!) but had no trouble using the sleeve comfortably. Having said that, popping out of the other end can be useful when you're ready to finish since it makes clean-up easier!

The 'other' end. Also known as "the end you'll almost certainly poke out of"

I am surprised at how tight this sleeve feels. For me, this translates to a realistic experience.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Butt Banger doesn't come with any attachments (unless you include the "Pixie Penis"). There is no buzzing from bullets and no frills, bells or whistles. It's purely and simply a masturbation sleeve with a kinky little twist and that is fine with me.

Apart from the decorative cock and balls, the main function of this is to fool you for 10 minutes (or two - I'm not here to judge!) that you've slipped into a tight, willing ass. It does that quite well thanks to both the tightness and the ridges/ribs that line the sleeve. Surprisingly, this is also quite sexy to slip a finger or thumb into the sleeve while you take care of business with your other hand. Water-based lube is definitely needed even for this.

Honey? Next time clip your nails first, ok?

The length is going to be an issue for some men. If you're "blessed" down there, you will either want to pass on this or accept that it won't hold your full length.

Care and Maintenance

The downside with this kind of realistic material is that it is porous. This makes it difficult to clean and easy for germs and dirt to hide. The following comes from EF's guide to New Supersoft:

"Skin like materials are extremely sensitive; they should be cleaned before and after every use with warm water and toy cleaner or antibacterial soap. These toys come dusted in a powdery material to maintain their unique texture. Clean the toy thoroughly before first use. After each use, clean again and dust with a little cornstarch (not TALC which has been linked to cervical cancer and will degrade the toy's material). Dust with cornstarch before storing to prevent the toy from becoming sticky. Each of your toys should be stored individually in a dark, cool place. Store each toy separately in a plastic zip bag or thin white sock. The porous surface can absorb dyes from other materials. These materials are also incompatible with many substances. Contact with silicone based lubricants, oil or petroleum based products (including toys) will cause damage to the surface of this toy."

Use only water based lubricants.

As you can see, there's quite a bit of care needed with this sleeve. That is the trade off that you get when you choose a product that feels the way this does. Is it worth the hassle? Again, that's another subjective choice but personally I'd say, "Yes."


This is another of those toys that looks like it should be hanging on a rack in your local sex shop. Whilst there's nothing wrong with that, it's not exactly classy looking. The box has a picture of what looks like a 1990's male porn star and I assume you're supposed to imagine that this is the young hunk you're banging away at.

If this is the model for this tight little ass then it's no wonder his cock is hidden on the pic!

Inside the box, the Butt Banger is packaged in nothing more than a plastic bag and looks scarily like something you'd see on "Ancient Aliens". I have to be honest and mention that when I first took this out of the box I thought "What the hell?", closely followed by, "Well, I'll be sending this straight back". Happily, I was able to get past that point and began using the sleeve.

Given the size of the toy, the size of the packaging is a little excessive. Things like this make me wonder whether manufacturers want you to think you are getting more for your money - I certainly expected a slightly bigger toy based on the size of the box since about half the height of the packaging is just empty space.

Did Aliens visit us and demand we fornicate with their little space bottoms? The evidence says yes!

Neither the box nor the sleeve are discreet. Given the slightly odd design of this you could pass it off as a prop for a Dr. Moreau-type movie or claim that you're trying to find out exactly how Happy the dwarf got his name if you're ever caught with this!

Personal comments

Although I didn't expect to enjoy the Butt Banger (who thinks up these names?), I was pleasantly surprised once I decided to give it a try. Again, it's tight enough to be realistic and is actually so tight that it's not comfortable for prolonged use unless you're going to use a fair amount of lube. I know the 'more lube is better' rule when it comes to anal, but didn't really think that applied to anal 'substitutes'. It certainly does in this case though.

I've found that the Butt Banger is much more effective when used as a tool to end your solo sessions. I'd also like to try this with some sort of bullet attachment, such as the one that comes with the Salsa Shaker (link below). The cock and balls aren't really useful apart from the mental aspect of shagging a boy bum and in fact I'd have bought the aforementioned Salsa instead had it been in stock when I was placing my order.
Follow-up commentary
Two months on and I have to be honest and say that the Butt Banger just doesn't get any use now. It's not that I don't like it, or that any feelings have changed, it's really because I recently bought my second-ever sleeve which was a Fleshlight Forbidden and that pretty much renders this toy redundant. So while it definitely does the job it's supposed to, if I'd had the time over again I'd have just saved up the extra in the first place for something bigger and of higher quality.
