I don’t have a lot of anal toys, and there’s a good reason for that. Master just is not a huge anal fan. He plays with my butt, but it doesn’t do anything special for him. Most of the time when my ass gets attention it is from other people, or solo sessions. I’ve only really begun expanding my anal horizons in the past year, and my anal experience has been pretty intermediate at best. I’ve “out grown” the usefulness of my smaller anal toys, and I really wanted something that would be a challenge, but not so much so that I would be in pain or uncomfortable trying to get it in.
I saw a video review on the Ace Plug Royal, and I was sure I wanted this toy. I went back and fourth though on whether or not I wanted this one, or the Ace Plug Small. I was comfortable with 1.5″ in diameter toys, and I thought the shape of this one would make it a bit more of a challenge than the ones I already had, which were more streamlined. I wasn’t wrong.
The Ace Plug royal arrived in a gorgeous see-through plastic box, as do most Tantus toys. Seeing as how the box is see-through, it isn’t discreet. Taking the toy out of the box, I was worried off the bat that it looked bigger than the 1.5″ toys I already owned. I took out a measuring tape, and it turns out that this toy is actually 1.75″ in diameter. Seeing as how that is only about a quarter of an inch difference, I decided that maybe I could manage it, and, at the very least I was going to give it a shot. Tantus toys last forever, so at the very least, I’d have something I could work up to later.
The Ace Plug Royal is made of silicone. I prefer silicone lubricants when I’m doing anal play, so this posed a problem for me. (You do know that you can’t use silicone lube on a silicone toy, right?) In order to get around this, I put a non-lubricated condom over the entire toy and tied a knot in the base. This worked perfectly, and made for a smoother ride. Just a side note: most condoms use silicone lube, so I personally use non-lubricated condoms on silicone toys. Make sure you’re positive that the lube on your condom is water-based or non-existant, or risk losing your beautiful toy to silicone damage.
Getting this beauty in definitely was a challenge. The gorgeous, shiny silicone is very firm and has next to no give. I made sure I was warmed up, used plenty of lube, and went slowly – but the first couple of times I tried to use this toy, I couldn’t get it in for anything.
I finally did manage to get it in though, and I remember thinking “OWEOWEOWE!” as it slid in. Before I knew it though, I was over the biggest part and it was in. The pain was gone, and I was comfortable and diggin’ it. I think that personally, the biggest problem I have getting this toy in is the drastic “slope” of the width. It may be tapered, but the tapered part is very short, so the toy is asking your butt to accept it very quickly.
Once the toy is in though, it feels amazing. The base is wide at 2.5″ wide, and 1.5″ thick, so you don’t have to worry about it slipping into the anus. The toy is 4″ insertable, and 4 1/4″ long overall. The stem of the toy is 3.25″ in circumference, and is pretty flexible, even if the material itself does not condense. I find the toy to be comfortable to wear while out and about, sitting at home, or during play time. I do not, however, find it to be comfortable during vaginal intercourse. This may be a personal thing, but I prefer very “squishy” anal toys when I am having vaginal sex. Otherwise, I find that the anal toy just gets hit too much, and causes pain.
Cleaning the toy is easy. If you used a condom, you can take the condom off, and use some hot, soapy water to be sure that the toy is totally clean. If you chose to use a water based lube and no condom, you might want to take some more steps. The toy can be boiled, washed in to the top rack of the dishwasher, or you can use a toy cleaner, 10% bleach solution, or soap and water. It’s up to you.
The box this came in is much larger than the toy itself, so I recycled it, and I just keep this in my “anal toys” drawer of my toy organizer. I take care to be sure that it doesn’t touch other silicone toys, but aside from that this toy stores well.
I really like this toy. It is made very well (Even if the dimentions are a bit off on the site), and it will last a long time. While I think that beginners should absolutely stay away, I think that intermediate players, and those looking for a challenge will love this. 5 paws:
