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.
