Sex Toy Review 2: The Stainless Steel Butt Plug

So here we are on another Monday with another sex toy to test! This one is the Stainless Steel Butt Plug, provided once again by the cool people over at Vibrators.com.

The first thing I realized upon pulling it out of the box was, wow, I’ve had jewelry that didn’t come in boxes so nice. You get a lovely metal and resin case with a molded foam lining for this toy, and since it was a nice afternoon at Miss Rat’s apartment when I opened it, the sun actually glinted off of it as I opened the lid. Seeing as I am not really someone who gets turned on by good packaging* it’s probably time to move to the toy itself.

First, it’s heavy. I think that’s the main virtue of this toy. Otherwise, it’s your very basic garden-variety anal plug with a rather narrow tapered head and a good pinch above the base to make sure that it locks tight to the body. This is a good thing, however, as it allows you to focus on the main point of the toy, which is the material that it is made from. The steel is impressively dense and completely unyielding. Word of advice to anyone with eyes bigger than their stomach, lube is your friend. It is totally worth using more lube than you think you need with this toy, even though the steel does mean that it’s a very smooth slide once you start inserting it.

Like all metal toys, it’s great for temperature play. Wrapping it up in a heating pad can actually make it shockingly hot, so just adjust for your own personal taste. So far, I’ve not played with cold, but it’s on the list of things to try. It also picks up vibrations very well if you have a powerful vibrator to touch to the base, and it transfers the vibes nicely to the rest of your body.

It’s worth mentioning that the base is a ball, rather than being flattened. It makes sitting down with this plug inserted quite interesting, but it is far from impossible. Between the weight and the ball-shaped base, you cannot forget that this toy is there.**

This is not a terribly challenging anal toy if you are already used to a smaller plug or to using fingers. The shape and the steel make insertion a breeze, and the neck of the toy is narrow enough that you do not have to worry about pushing it out accidentally. Once again, the weight is the thing, and it makes for a very different sensation if you are only used to light silicone.

All in all, I like this toy a lot. It’s exactly as advertised, it seems well-made, it’s comfortable to wear, and I think it’s a lot of fun.

In other news, I got my 10k word novella off to Ellora’s Cave, so Frog willing and the crick don’t rise, it will be for sale by the new year. Now I just have to write them another one. I’m actually under contract, and apparently, for me, being under contract means writing like there’s a sword hanging over my head All. Month.

*Okay, a little. I only get turned on by packaging a little.
**Sadistic/bratty tops take note.
