The Pop Plug Butt Plug is made by Doc Johnson. Though Doc Johnson is a local California-based company (yay!), their products and packaging are made in China. The Pop Plug comes packaged in a flexible plastic box with colorful pink swirls on it. Inside the box, the Pop Plug sits in a plastic tray. The packaging is really not discreet as you can see the Butt Plug through the front of the box. You can certainly use this box for storage but it does take up quite a bit more room than the Pop Plug Butt Plug itself, so if space is an issue for you as it certainly is for me, you may want to pop your Pop Plug in a nice little storage bag.
This Butt Plug is made of premium silicone, which is latex and phthalate-free, as well as being hypoallergenic and body-safe. As silicone is non-porous, it is a great choice for sex toys, especially things that go up your butt. It will not collect bacteria and such and is very easy to clean and disinfect. You can go the easy route and simply use water and anti-bacterial soap, or a sex toy spray or wipe. However, if you are sharing your Pop Plug between partners or going from anal to vaginal play with it, you definitely want to sterilize it. Fortunately, that is a cinch to do. The Pop Plug is solid silicone so you can use a 10% bleach solution, wash it in the top rack of your dishwasher with no soap, or boil it in water for 3-5 minutes.
The use of lubricant is always important with anal toys and the Pop Plug is no different. However, as it is 100% silicone, you want to be sure to use a water-based lubricant with it. Though some high quality silicone sex toys can be used with some high quality silicone lubes, this is not always or even often the case. Silicone will bond with itself so if you use a silicone lube with your silicone Pop Plug, you may end up melting your Butt Plug. Therefore, to be safe I prefer to stick with a water-based lubricant when playing with my silicone sex toys.
The Pop Plug Butt Plug comes in three sizes, small, medium, and large. I ordered the large, figuring that would suit me best and it was a good choice. I find even the large to be on the small side when it comes to butt plugs, though I certainly do not need all of my plugs to be huge by any stretch (pun intended). The Large Pop Plug is approximately 4 3/4″ long, with 2 1/2″ being insertable, and 1 1/2″ in diameter. The silicone is light pink and very soft. It also does not attract lint or hair which is always a blessing when it comes to silicone. There is a seam along two sides of the Pop Plug that I feel with my fingers but I do not feel the seem when the plug is inside me.
While pink is not my favorite color for sex toys, it certainly is fitting for Pink October. We all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and pink is the color of breast cancer, right? Of course, pink is also used by other causes but this month pink is all about Breast Cancer. It is a perfect time to to buy yourself or someone a pink butt plug! I also certainly prefer pink to black or something that is close to my skin color. I like my sex toys more whimsical and colorful.
The shape of the Pop Plug allows it to slide inside my butt smoothly and easily and stay put. It fits snugly and does not slip out even with vigorous activity. This is a huge thing for me as I do tend to have issues with many of my plugs slipping out. Thanks to the little handle, it is easy to remove. I simply slip my finger through the circle, tug gently, and out slides the Pop Plug. The size is great for me, though it does feel much smaller than its 1 1/2″. This is most likely because the Pop Plug is silicone so it compresses, whereas I usually wear glass or stainless steel butt plugs which do not.
The base of the Pop Plug is so ergonomic. Yes, yes, I know most people do not necessarily think of butt plugs as ergonomic but it sits perfectly between my ass checks. It keeps the entire plug from disappearing up inside me while also keeping it from sliding out. It allows me to walk and sit comfortably, no mean feat while wearing a butt plug.
Pop Plug Pros:
• Not a lint magnet
• Three sizes
• Great design
Pop Plug Cons:
• No storage bag
I was actually quite surprised by how comfortable the Pop Plug is, especially to just sit around in. I’m wearing it as I write this review, and unlike some of my other plugs, sitting on top of it is no problem. The silicone is just so smooth and forgiving. I am delighted that it comes in three sizes as it should fit the bill for most anyone except size queens. I would love to see it in an extra large size, actually, but I can be a bit of a size queen when it comes to my sex toys. Never mind me though, the shape is so great and the plug so comfortable, I think the small size would be excellent for beginners. It really is a very friendly butt plug.
