Review: So Divine Wild Thing Jewelled Booty Plug

During 2017, a few companies have shot up on my radar and So Divine are definitely one of them. I have been rather impressed with the quality of the products they’ve released so far and I adore their message of producing safe, affordable sex toys for all. They started out with mini bullets, single speed bullets, classic vibrators and massaging wands that doubled as internal vibrators. Then they continued to expand their range by launching the first butt plug, a petite toy named the Sweet Sensation. It has been my go-to plug to recommend to first-timers ever since I tried it and I’d hoped they’d add more to their anal offerings. A few weeks ago I received word that they’d added two more sizes and I opted to review the larger of the two, the Wild Thing. I will be purchasing the medium Bootylicious to complete the set and I’ll also be hoping to see some vibrating options appear in the near future.

It arrived in typical So Divine fashion – a simple purple and white box with a product photo on the front. It points out a few key features on the side of the box and some instructions for use on the back. Inside, there’s another box which contains the plug, two changeable jewels, a small velvet storage pouch and the information leaflet that comes with all products. It just gives a quick introduction to the brand and some basic cleaning information.

Wild Thing is made from soft silicone. This is of course non-toxic, odourless, hypoallergenic and completely body safe. There are no latex or phthalates involved either. A good, hygienic material is necessary for any sort of sex toy but it’s a must-have for butt stuff. The silky silicone has less resistance to it than many other silicone plugs I’ve encountered so there’s not much unwanted friction to remove. It is an anal toy however so this doesn’t mean you should scrimp on the lubricant as we all know the anus doesn’t lubricate itself. A high quality water based anal concoction is what you’ll need and I’d recommend being generous with it as this is a large plug.

Cleaning wise, silicone can occasionally maintain odours after use but this wasn’t an issue for me. For those who may encounter this problem, just bleach the plug (after removing the jewel) with a 10% bleach solution, place it in the dishwasher on a sanitize setting with no detergent or boil it for a few moments. You should clean with one of the above methods if the plug is going to be used by more than one person otherwise rinsing and spritzing with antibacterial cleaner is more than enough.

The Wild Thing Booty Plug has a traditional shape. It has a pointed tip with a rounded body and a slender neck. It has a circular base complete with changeable jewels that is wider than the plugs widest point to prevent unwanted travel. You should never use anything in your butt that doesn’t have a flared base as they can get sucked up/lost and create awkward hospital visits to get them removed. This plug is perfectly safe, easy to insert with some lube and has not slipped out on me during use. I have no concerns about it traveling or moving out-of-place as the base is both sturdy and secure.

So what are the dimensions? It has an overall length of four inches and an insertable length of 2.3 inches. It’s short and unobtrusive like its smaller counterpart but has a circumference of five inches that provides a filled sensation. It is not huge but it definitely should not be used without some slow build up and experience. I have been engaging in anal play and anal sex for a couple of years now so the size wasn’t an issue for me but those who are new to butt stuff should start with the Sweet Sensation and move on to the Bootylicious before attempting the Wild Thing.

The neck and base of this plug have some flex to them which gives the initial impression that they’d be hard to insert and position but there were no issues with this at all. If anything, it makes insertion easier as I can get the correct angle for comfortable entry. As I’d tried So Divine’s beginner plug I knew that I couldn’t accidentally pop out the crystal when pushing against it, as its supported well by the surrounding silicone, but it can be removed easily to change the jewel to one of the other color options. It comes with a gold, light purple and silver jewel that can be changed when wanted. All three colours look very pretty when worn as they sparkle and reflect the light beautifully. It gives a partner a nice view when wearing it and adds some extra details to a plug that would be plain otherwise. I have enjoyed matching the jewels to the finishing touches on the lingerie I wear and absolutely love the fact that I now have three plugs in one.

In regards to how comfortable this is to wear, I’d say very. This is the kind of plug that I can wear for long-term use without having any discomfort. If large plugs are new to you then build up the wear time slowly to not overwhelm your body and prepare to relubricate as needed. I can wear it for three to four hours without needing to top up as it’s so sleek and soft that additional lubricant isn’t needed until that point. Others may need to add more lube sooner, but this is how it worked out for me.

What do butt plugs do other than look pretty? If being worn by someone with a vagina then it can make the canal feel tighter which can be fun for both parties during intercourse. This size definitely created a more obvious difference than the smaller version which my partner liked. I’m naturally quite tight down there anyway as I do kegel exercises regularly and I haven’t had children but there is a difference when wearing a plug that no amount of kegels could achieve. Plugs also place a subtle but noticeable pressure on the back wall of the vagina which makes PIV more enjoyable for me. I’m not a huge fan of vaginal sex but it is better for me when wearing a plug and I can orgasm pretty easily from the combined stimulation without even adding vibration (something I must have during sex without a plug).

As a result of better sex I’ve been wearing this plug on a regular basis since it arrived. I do think this is a great size for my experience level and being able to wear it comfortably during sex without it slipping out is wonderful. I can orgasm in time (or close to it) with my partner whilst wearing the Wild Thing which makes sex feels more intimate and connecting. It enables me to enjoy a sex act that I’m not usually that bothered about which is great for my partner and allows us to create a deeper sexual bond. I would actively recommend this plug by So Divine to people who can handle the size and I’m looking forward to seeing how they expand their anal range in the coming months.

Review: Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Butt Plug

I recently found myself in somewhat of a frustrating situation at the hands of a company that shall not be named. They pulled out of doing a giveaway at the last-minute leaving me with no back up plan for the giveaway I had been wanting to do for months. Thankfully, a fellow sex blogger, RandomRedRose stepped in and posted a tweet asking if any companies would be willing to help out and as a result of that, Charlie (from charlielee.eu) got in touch and said he could sort something out. We decided on the Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Butt Plug in Black and he kindly offered me one of my own to review.

Furry Fantasy Black Bunny Tail Butt PlugThe packaging for this product is very understated and simple. It comes in a velvet drawstring pouch with a simple tag attached. It doesn’t give much information other than the two materials used within this plug but I don’t think anything else was actually needed. Inside the drawstring pouch I found a small resealable plastic bag housing the plug which had been wrapped in tissue paper and a polystyrene like pouch for added protection. It may be basic in its presentation, but I maintained high hopes for its performance.

Furry Fantasy’s Bunny Tail Butt Plug is made from a shiny aluminium alloy. It feels smooth to the touch, is seamless and seemed to be finished well. It is free from latex and phthalates and feels high quality, especially considering the price tag. It hasn’t chipped or flaked at all which makes me confident in stating that this is non-toxic and body-safe. It can be used with any type of lubricant, which is great news for me as I like to use silicone based options with butt toys, although I didn’t want to risk staining the faux fur so I’ve stuck with water based so far. I have been using a 10% bleach solution to clean the plug and so far this has done me well. I’ve had no problems.

Size wise, I’d class this in the range between beginner and intermediate. I have a fair amount of anal experience, be that with my partner and with sex toys, so this was more than suitable for me. If you can take two fingers in your butt comfortably, then this plug should be fine for you. It is 4.72 inches in overall length, but only 2.95 inches are actually insertable. This is quite short for a plug and definitely more in the beginners realm of comfort. As for the girth, it measured in at 3.1 inches at the tip and 4.3 inches around the widest point of the bulb.

Furry Fantasy Black Bunny Tail Butt PlugThe Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Butt Plug was designed in a classic shape. The traditional and very popular teardrop. This means that there’s a pointed/tapered tip with a rounded body and a slender neck. It has an all important circular base (with faux fur attached) that is wider than the neck to prevent unwanted travel.

You should never use anything anally that doesn’t have some form of sturdy flared base as it could end up getting lost and that would create an uncomfortable (and potentially painful) trip to hospital to get it located and removed.

As I mentioned above, the size was very manageable for me. I found that the plug was easy to insert with a small helping of lube and comfortable to wear once in place. It hasn’t slipped out at all, despite me being used to bigger products and I have no doubts about the base whatsoever. It feels secure and keeps the plug firmly in place until I’m done with it. This plug isn’t large at all so I can wear it for longer periods of time, but sitting down with it in is not much of an option. It isn’t very comfortable and I feel like the tail gets all squashed which ruins the aesthetic. To sum it up, I can clean the house with it in, but it’s not a plug I’d wear to lounge around and get aroused in.

When I was younger, probably mid-teens, I was surrounded by people who thought that anything anal was “disgusting” and “gross” so I adapted myself to that situation and thought those same things. As I’ve gotten older and developed my own opinions and begun trying things out for myself, I discovered that anal was something that I actually really enjoyed. I’ve been experimenting for a few years now but surprisingly butt plugs haven’t come onto my radar until much later. I only started using/trying/buying them around seven or eight months ago and I had always gone back and forth about whether I should get one before that.

I had previously restricted my searches to the most bland, basic, stripped-back designs that I could find and ignored the bright and beautiful, eccentric and fetish types. When I eventually started using butt plugs and realising how fantastic they could be, my mind suddenly started remembering all of these ‘unusual’ plugs that I’d pushed to the back of the shelf and I found myself honing on in animal tails. I was drawn to ponies, cats and fox tails as these seemed to appeal to my inner pet the most, but I wanted to start off with something small and cute like a bunny tail so I didn’t shock myself into never trying a tail again.

Furry Fantasy Black Bunny Tail Butt PlugWhen I had inserted the Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Butt Plug for the first time, I turned around to check out the tail in the mirror and immediately fell in love with the aesthetic. I thought it looked adorable and my partner agreed. He said that I have a small butt (in terms of cheek size) so the pert fluff of this tail looked well suited between my cheeks. We both agreed that it could be potentially buried between larger cheeks, so a fuller, fluffier tail may be better suited to those who have a butt that Nicki Minaj would envy.

I felt in my element when wearing this plug and I really hadn’t expected to feel that way. Something seemed to click in me that said I’d found something worthwhile, something that worked for me and knowing that I hadn’t even considered it until recently surprised me. I feel that since I’ve started sex blogging I have discovered a lot about myself and I think this particular product has allowed me to explore a fantasy that I never knew (or pretended I didn’t know) I had. I almost wished I had some matching ears and fluffy mittens to complete the look and get fully in the zone, but who knows? Maybe I’ll step up my game again in the coming months and indulge in some animal accessories.

Butt plugs can make the vaginal canal feel tighter during PIV which can be fun for both parties. My partner could notice a subtle difference although he said it wasn’t as obvious as it’s been with other plugs that I have used. I’m quite tight down there anyway as I’ve never had children and I do my kegels often, so I care more about the noticeable amount of pressure placed up against the back wall of my vagina than the sensation of tightness. It increases my chances of orgasm and helps me get off much faster during an act that doesn’t do a whole lot for me on its own. If I combine a clitoral vibrator with the feel of the cool plug and that pressure, I can be in heaven within around ten minutes.

Review: Icicles No 37 Textured Glass Butt Plug

I own several butt plugs now and most of them could be classed as small and beginner like, so I decided it was time to branch out. I saw the intermediate sized Icicles No 37 pop up on Lovehoney and knew it would the perfect plug to up my game with. It’s made from my favourite material, has some glorious looking texture and is a touch longer than the other plugs I have. All of these factors made this plug stand out to me and although I’m not crazy about Pipedream, the brand behind Icicles, affordable glass can be hard to find and I like to review sexy things at a variety of price points.

Icicles No 37 Glass Butt PlugIt arrived in the simplistic packaging that is typical of the Icicles range. It’s rather classy considering the manufacturer and I’m pretty happy with it. The front of the box shows off an image of the product and pulls open to reveal the plug behind a window of plastic. Inside, the Icicles No 37 is protected by a layer of foam casing. It’s somewhat disappointing that Pipedream don’t include storage bags with this range as glass needs to be secured safely to avoid chips and the boxes are too bulky.

The box also gives some care instructions inside/on the back, but there’s some questionable areas of text. I have to strongly disagree with their suggestions for changing the temperature as they list the microwave and freezer as options. Nope. Please don’t do either of those things. Microwaves can create heat spots and freezers could lead to potential awkward and painful sticking of the anus to the product. Neither of those would be fun. Stick to safe methods such as the fridge or placing it in a bowl of water that’s at your desired temperature. I personally like to chill mine for twenty minutes or so.

One bonus of glass as a material is that it can be used with any type of lubricant as there are no concerns about material degradation. I like to use silicone based as these tend to be slicker. Glass is non-toxic, non-porous, odourless, hypoallergenic and completely body safe. You can even place it in the dishwasher for a thorough clean. This is particularly important if more than one person intends to use the plug and should be done before changing hands (or anuses). I use soap and water for everyday cleaning, but will run it through the dishwasher once a month for a more in-depth clean. I also use an old toothbrush to remove any fluids harboring around the nodules.

Having heard one or two horror stories about butt plugs with not-so-sturdy finger loops, the very first thing I did was give this one a test run. I’m pleased to report that this one feels very secure and safe to use. I twisted, pulled and tugged to the harshest of my abilities and there were no signs of trauma to the glass or loosening of the finger loop. The rest of the No 37 seemed sufficiently well made too as there were no imperfections whatsoever. Sometimes this happens with hand-blown glass massagers, but not this one. It’s basically perfect aesthetically.

Icicles No 37 Glass Butt PlugAfter slathering the bulb and neck with lube, I carefully inserted the plug. It went in without much resistance and felt comfortable throughout because of the tapered tip. I have taken toys like the Tantus Flurry in my butt previously and have had anal sex with my larger than average partner, so the dimensions were fine for me. I wouldn’t recommend it to somebody who has no anal experience though. It’s still a fairly small plug but it’s bigger than the beginners plugs on the market. It has an insertable length of four inches and a girth of four and a half inches.

One thing that I discovered about this plug quite early on was the lack of difference between the circumference of the bulb and circumference of the neck. There’s not much change at all which means that this butt plug is capable of slipping out on occasion. It has happened to me twice thus far and both times were during penetrative sex. As a result, I don’t feel that I can recommend this as a plug that can be worn during vigorous sex unless you have a spare hand to hold onto the base. That might be a bit of a mood killer and frustration though. In our experience, the Icicles No 37 is better suited to slower love-making and solo sessions.

Icicles No 37 Glass Butt PlugI thought it was great for masturbation sessions and this is where it shined for me. I found that thrusting in and out, regardless of pace, allowed me to make the most of those delicious raised nodules. I can really feel and appreciate this texture when I maneuver the plug and it feels divine. It’s not what I’d call extreme, but it’s not subtle either. It has an ideal amount of intensity for its size and it feels wonderful. If you’ve ever tried the Lovehoney Nubby and liked it, this plug would be a great choice for you as the texture is similar.

Another fun method for solo play was gentle rotation. I’d hold onto the loop and gently twist the plug in circular motions. Lovehoney mentioned this in their product description and it worked well for me, although I don’t know if I’d describe it as feeling like oral like they did. It was pleasurable for me though. If I wore the plug without any sort of movement then the texture wasn’t very noticeable. It could only be truly felt during insertion and removal. I wanted more than that. Playing with the No 37 allows the texture to become prevalent again and included in the build-up to orgasm. If I combine thrusting or rotation with a clit vibe then I can get off quite easily.

Overall, I think the Icicles No 37 is a good quality, inexpensive plug that’s ideal for intermediate anal players. If the bulb has been a little wider then I think it would have stayed in easier during sex, but this isn’t a major problem as there are workarounds. Holding onto the base, restricting use to slower sex or holding it back for masturbation/solo sessions are all viable options. I personally like option three best and have found it most successful. I’d be happy to recommend this plug to people who like relatively intense texture, temperature play and medium-sized butt plugs.

You can purchase the Icicles No 37 Textured Glass Butt Plug (£29.99) from Lovehoney.

Review: So Divine Sweet Sensation Booty Plug

So Divine have quickly become a company that is high on my radar. I love the quality of the products I’ve tried so far and my admiration of their message still stands firmly. You can read more about that in the past reviews I’ve written for their products. I have not been disappointed with their sex toys as of yet, which is quite surprising for those who know how fussy I am when it comes to picking vibrators, but I wondered how they would do on this new excursion. They recently introduced something completely different to the line of vibrators they originally offered with their first butt plug, the Sweet Sensation.

So Divine Sweet Sensation Booty PlugIt arrived in a classic purple and white box featuring a product photo on the front along with the name and So Divine branding. It points out a few key features on the side of the box and some instructions for use on the back. Inside, there’s another box containing the plug, a small velvet storage pouch and the small information leaflet that comes with all products. It gives a quick welcome to So Divine and some basic cleaning directions.

The Sweet Sensation Booty Plug is made from silicone. It is of course non-toxic, odourless, hypoallergenic and completely body-safe. It’s also free from latex and phthalates. A good material is important for any sort of sex toy, but it’s absolutely essential for butt products. Sometimes silicone can maintain a butt odour after use, but I didn’t find that happened with this particular plug. I have cleaned and washed it well after each use a scented antibacterial cleaner though. In terms of how the silicone feels, it truly is divine. It feels gloriously smooth to the touch and has very little drag to it. As it’s designed for anal use, I would definitely recommend using a good coating of anal water-based lubricant like Sliquid Sassy, especially if anal is completely new to you.

When this plug was described to me as petite and beginner friendly, I had expected something small, but I was still surprised by how adorable it actually was when it arrived. It’s absolutely perfect for butt plug/butt play beginners or those who are nervous about using plugs. It measures up at four inches in circumference and three inches of overall length. Two and a half inches are usable. It’s not the smallest plug in existence, but it should be fine for anyone who can handle a finger in their butt. I personally have quite a bit of anal experience, so I could manage a larger plug than this at my current comfort level, but that doesn’t make these beginner plugs useless to me.

So Divine Sweet Sensation Booty PlugSweet Sensation’s shape is traditional. It has a pointed tip with a rounded body and a slender neck. It has the very important circular base (that’s wider than the neck) to prevent travel. You should never use anything in your butt that doesn’t have a flared base as these can get lost. I found it easy to insert and I’ve encountered no slipping out. I have zero concerns about it traveling or creating an awkward hospital visit. The base feels sturdy and secure, keeping the plug firmly in place until I’m finished with it.

I did have some initial concerns that this plug would be difficult to insert as the neck and base have some flex to them, but this didn’t seem to affect insertion at all. If anything, it made the process easier as I could get the correct angle for comfortable entry. I also worried that I might accidentally pop out the crystal when pushing against it, but it’s supported well by the silicone that surrounds it and does not come out easily at all. The Sweet Sensation is my first jewelled butt plug and it definitely won’t be my last. It looks very pretty when worn as it sparkles and reflects the light beautifully. It really does give your partner a nice view when you are wearing it and adds something extra to a plug that would be quite plain otherwise.

So Divine Sweet Sensation Booty PlugIn terms of how comfortable it is to wear, I’d have to say very. It’s the sort of plug that I can wear for long-term use without having any problems. I wouldn’t recommend doing this straight away if you have no anal experience, but it’s an option to explore once you’ve become acquainted. I can wear it for several hours without feeling the need to relubricate as it’s so petite that additional lubricant isn’t essential for me. This might not be the case for all, but it’s how it worked out in my experience.

Sensation wise, butt plugs make the vaginal canal feel tighter, which can be fun for both parties during intercourse. My partner noticed the difference and commented on it a couple of times, although the difference wasn’t huge as I’m quite tight down there anyway. It seemed to place a subtle, noticeable pressure on the back wall which made sex more enjoyable for me and increased my chances of being able to orgasm. I often find butt stuff induces more orgasms than vaginal penetration, but the combination can be lethal. I don’t need to use a clit vibe if I’m wearing this plug to come during sex, but I would if I wasn’t wearing it.

For that reason, I’ve been wearing this butt plug rather frequently during sex with my partner. Being able to join him as he orgasms without needing vibrations between us is something my partner welcomes. It feels more intimate during lovemaking, makes us feel more connected and is generally a ton of fun. It’s part of the reason I’m not so opposed to penetrative sex anymore as I’ve finally found something that enables me to enjoy the experience. I can see this being an everyday plug until I move onto something a little bigger as it’s just so comfortable and durable. I hope that So Divine intend to bring out some larger different colored versions in the future and maybe even vibrating options too. I’d be all for that.

You can purchase the So Divine Sweet Sensation Booty Plug (£19.99) from Lovehoney.
