Unfortunately my experience using this plug was one of discomfort. As I slowly pushed it in, past the widest point, my body sucked in the remainder – as typically is the case with butt plugs – and immediately I was confronted by a strong and unpleasant internal pain. I can only assume that the firm pointed tip was jabbing into my soft delicate insides and causing this sensation. With subsequent attempts I discovered that angling plug during insertion avoided this immediate pain, but what remained was that the plug was not at all comfortable to wear inside myself. There was a constant mild sensation bordering on pain, which worsened with movement or any tightening of the anal muscles, and which made wearing the plug in a seated position impossible.
You can buy the Enspiral butt plug from SexToys.co.uk
When you think about it, it’s rather a clever solution, because it takes a successful design and markets it at both the customer who is discerning about what materials they put inside their body, and the customer who is making a price-conscious decision.
While I’d love for this to be a review post, contrasting the two products, sadly it isn’t. The fact is I’m having a moment of weakness.
Although shaped to resemble a penis, the tip of the toy is actually quite blunt, meaning the prior use of a tapered butt plug will be a necessity for most, in order to gently open the way, and handily Doc Johnson also sell one of these in the corresponding size. With preparations taken care of, the shape of the toy is enough to allow for comfortable insertion, provided you have plenty of lube on hand. If you liked the full feeling of the butt plug, then the extra length of the dildo will really take it to another level. Directly below the tip of the toy are two wide ridges, which are pronounced enough for you to feel them during use. This area gives the dildo more interest than something which is purely smooth, as you can slide up and down against the ridges and enjoy the sensations they produce. Further down the dildo the shaft bends, which is something I found slightly problematic. The sheer thickness of the toy renders the material quite inflexible, so the shape doesn’t change at all while it’s inside you, and that shape can prove to be quite awkward. When trying to get the toy in deeper, especially for the first time, the angle of the toy doesn’t seem to naturally want to follow the shape of the body, so there is a period of twisting it around and trying to position it so as to encounter the least resistance, rather than having it uncomfortably poking you in the bladder. While I’m certain the bend isn’t a problem on the smaller models, it just seems to be a little too much to be practical on the large one, and adds what is essentially an obstacle, rather than a feature which enhances it. Had the shaft been significantly straighter, I feel it would have worked better. The base of the product is concave – much like the underside of a champagne bottle – so if you place it on a smooth flat surface and push down it acts much like a suction cup and holds it in place.
The plug is quite long at 5.75″ – with 5″ of that being insertable – which gives it a very gentle gradient from the tip to the widest part of the bulb, which is 2.3″. With plenty of lubricant it’s possible to insert the the plug quite gradually, steadily increasing how much you can fit as the muscles adapt with each use, meaning it’s suitable for those with only a fairly moderate level of experience, as well as the more advanced user.
