The box

The box is pretty standard for California Exotic Novelties, but it is one of their worse designs.  The front of the box has a “actual size” picture of the plug with some weird purple design on it.  I can’t really tell what it is, kind of looks like blurry purple rain.  The toy takes up only about 1/4″ of the box, so I just tossed it to save space, but the box would be a decent place to store the plug to keep it lint free.  Since it shows the plug it’s not really discreet.  It also lists all the features such as the “ez-pull” handle.  To me that just sounds like a gimmicky lawn product or something.

Sizing it up

The Love Pacifier is about 4.25″ long with about 2.75″ being insert-able.  The bulb of the plug is about 1″ at the widest.  It’s thinner than two of my fingers so I think this a fairly nice size for beginner anal play.  I would still recommend using a finger or so to warm up beforehand though if you have absolutely no experience.  The neck of the plug narrows to under 1/2″ but it also has a very large handle (the ez-pull handle /eyeroll) which means your ass won’t eat it.  The handle is about 2″ in diameter and two of my fingers easily fit through the loop.

In my hand

I am still always wary of CAE’s quality of silicone, so I put this plug to the flame test.  It did get a bit sooty, but it easily wiped off and left no discoloration, which was great.  I was excited for this to be a high-quality 100% silicone plug so that I could share it between partners.  The silicone with this toy does have a lot of drag to it (and a major lint magnet) so you will need lots of good water-based lube for insertion.  It’s very easy to clean, just wash with soap and water or toy cleaner and be sure to bleach or boil it between partners.  I also found the silicone to be very firm, much firmer than a lot of the other toys I have.  On the bulb of the toy there is really very little give to the material, but it does taper for easier insertion.  There is a bit of a seam along the toy, but it doesn’t feel sharp.

Showing the flexibility

I have not personally tried this yet, my butt is still a bit scared, but I did try it on a partner.  He found it to be very comfortable and it stayed in place for sex very easily.  The only issue I had is it can get very slippery when trying to insert it and the neck of the toy between the bulb and the handle is very flexible.  It’s much easier to insert the toy if you hold it closer to the bulb rather than the handle.  If you try to push while holding the handle it is most likely going to just bend.  The bit of the handle where the material thins out is also flexible and a little stretchy but I don’t feel that it would rip while trying to remove the toy.  I think you would have to have a sphincter of steel to be able to hold on it and pull hard enough to snap the handle.

Overall, I think that the Love Pacifier Beginner is a great beginner plug and I will eventually brave trying it myself.  I do like the bulbed shape compared to other straighter more finger like plugs as this one seems to stay in place much better and the handle also seems like it would rest nicely between your cheeks.  I suppose it could also act as an actual pacifier given it’s been sterilized first. banner
