I know what you’re thinking! But no, this isn’t going to be a review on Pringles. It’s going to be about something much more fun. I know that tasty chips in a strange shape sound impossible to beat, but just bear with me, OK? I present to you Pop Plugs!
Pop Plugs come in three sizes, small (1″ diameter), medium (1 1/4″ diameter), and large (1 1/2″ diameter), so you can choose the size which works best for you. Pop Plugs are one solid chunk of pure silicone, so they are body safe and phalates free. I did not notice any smell at all coming off of mine. The toy has a safe and very sturdy base so you don’t need to worry about it getting sucked up and lost inside your body. On the very bottom, there’s even a small flexible ring for easy removal. Nice!
I wish the color would show up better with my camera, but this toy is actually a bit darker than it looks in my pictures. Think “bubblegum pink”, more that shade. The very front of the toy is tapered, and it gets larger as you follow the toy down. The widest point is 1.5″ in diameter, and then the toy tapers down and has a very safe flared base on the bottom. The entire toy is smooth and free of anything which may hurt your butt. Pop Plugs have a matte finish, so you’ll definitely want to use a bit of extra lube to ease it into place.
Once quick note about lube. Recently, I discovered that silicone lubes were most comfortable for me for anal purposes. This poses a bit of a problem because most of the anal toys I have (but not all) are made from silicone. (And you know that you can’t put silicone lube on a silicone toy, right)? Silicone is a wonderful material because it is not porous which makes it body safe, so very desirable for anal. I came up with a pretty simple solution to make my silicone anal toys a bit more comfortable to play with. All you need is a non-lubricated condom (be careful, because a lot of times the lubricant on lubricated condoms is silicone based!) and roll it all the way down the length of the toy. Tie a knot in the bottom of the condom to be sure that no lubricant gets on the toy at all. This will not work on long toys, because the condom may not reach. This will only work if you are able to tie a knot in the bottom of the condom! Just a forewarning. If your condom doesn’t reach, you’ll have to be sure to use plenty of water-based lube instead. Note: this worked perfectly with my Pop Plug. The ring on the bottom is flexible, so you can just “lock” it right into the condom with the rest of the toy without issue.
This toy is so comfortable to wear, it’s ridiculous. Sometimes Master will just walk over to me with a bottle of lube and a smile and hand me the toy to put in. Sometimes he even does this before we go out somewhere. I’ve gone on errands and to the hot tub with this in, and it is a joy to wear. It feels comfortable, and very sexy. I can sit with it in easily, and when I walk or move there’s a subtle sexy reminder constantly exciting me. When I put a condom on it with silicone lube, I can wear this indefinitely. If I use water based lube, I find that it is really comfortable for an hour or two, and then I need to reapply lube or take it out.
When you wear this under clothes in public, it’s not noticable under pants or anything like that. However, we’ve worn this in the hot tub before, and if I bend over in my bathing suit Master tells me he can just barely see the removal ring of the toy. It’s not likely that anyone else will notice this, but it’s a good idea to be aware of it, and keep the bending to a minimum if you prefer covert play, or you aren’t around people who will understand.
Cleaning is a cinch. If you used a condom as I outlined above, you just throw the condom away and I like to wash the toy with soap and water anyway, just to be sure. You could also use a 10% bleach solution, wash this in the dishwasher on the top rack, or use a toy cleaner or boil this. You can share your Pop Plug between partners since it is not porous, just be sure to sterilize it properly first, or use a condom.
I really love my Pop Plug, and I think a lot of other people will enjoy it too. 5 paws!
Thank you so much, Babeland, for allowing me to try out this toy in exchange for an honest and fair review.
