In the goody box I received a few months back from Pipedream theAnal Fantasy Collection Mini Silicone Plug was in my box! I remember requesting it but it was in there so we will give it a try! There are several things that come in this little kit that I will be going over!!
The Mini Silicone Plug's purpose is to be inserted into the anus for anal stimulation whether you are male or female bodied both can use this plug. If you are looking to get something for anal pleasure this might be for you unless you are an advanced anal player. The Mini Silicone Plug I would say is geared more towards those just entering into the anal play scene or someone who can't take large objects anally. The Mini Plug comes in only one color which is black. You get a few extras when you purchase the Mini Silicone Plug! Inside you will find a sample of Anal Ease, Moist Anal Lube, 2 Finger Sleeves and Refresh Toy Cleaner.
I got another goody box in from Pipedream a few weeks ago and inside I found the following:
Moist Personal Lubricant
Anal Fantasy Mini Silicone Plug
Today I will be reviewing the Icicles No.48 but, be on the lookout for reviews on the other items I received as well.
The Icicles line from Pipedream is an amazing collection of toys made out of Pyrex Glass such as your bake ware in your kitchen. The Icicles line contains dildos, vibrators as well as anal plugs. Pipedreams' Icicles line isn't the typical plain Jane glass toys, most are very pretty and look like a piece of art! That is one thing that draws me in. The purpose behind anal plugs is for those who like anal stimulation with or without having intercourse or for those who are male bodied looking for prostate stimulation. The No.48 is a light shade of pink but looks clear in my photos due to the flash. Each No.48 plug can vary in shades of pink since they are handcrafted. The Icicles No.48 is available in pink only.
Do you like double penetration but want to real deal to be in the mix as well? You can simply pop the No.48 in the backdoor while you have your partner giving you vaginal penetration. No partner but want to be double stuffed while masturbating? Yep, you can use plugs there too. Anal plugs can also be worn for extended periods of time whether it be around the house while doing chores or out running errands. Make sure though when indulging in anal play that you are using a toy made specifically for anal play. Using an item without a flared base can end badly!!
Who does the No.48 plug work best for? In my opinion, it would work for women more so then men unless you aren't worried about it being "girly" in looks. I would say that the No.48 could be used by a beginner if you ease your way into inserting the plug. The No.48 measures in at 3 inches long insertable length and 1.25 inches wide. Pipedream does manufacture smaller plugs that would workout even better for a beginner. You can view them on their site.
Want to learn more about the No.48? Read on....
Material-What Is The No.48 Made Out Of
If you know me and follow all my reviews you will know that the No.48 isn't made with a porous material! The No.48 is made out of hand blown Pyrex Glass also referred to as Borosilicate Glass. When it comes to glass toys you will want to use with extra care and caution since glass is a solid material and has absolutely NO give to it. Since there is NO give when it comes to glass toys you will want to proceed with caution! Don't just ram the No.48 in to your vagina or anus make sure you work your way up slowly til fully inserted. Also being that the No.48 is smooth on the surface that is being inserted you won't have much trouble. Make sure though that you use a proper amount of lubricant to make insertion easier. With the proper amount of lubricant and patience you should not have any problems with the No.48 plug. If you are one of those who share your toys between orifices or with your partner make sure that you clean your No.48 properly before sharing with your partner or between your own orifices. The No.48 is made out of a very safe material that is great especially if sharing. Made out of Pyrex/Borosilicate Glass means that the No.48 is made out of nonporous, latex free, phathaletes free and hypoallergenic material. This is something I look for in all the toys I own. Nonporous toys can be shared with no issue IF they are cleaned properly. Icicles No.48 can be sterilized for safer play meaning you can kill all the germs on it. You can find out how in the Care Section which you can find below. When it comes to using glass toys you will want to inspect them before and after each an every use.
Things to check for:
Any other type of crack, break or such.
If you find any of the above upon inspection of your No.48 you will want to discontinue use as any of the above can cut your anal or vaginal tissue. You will want to avoid any cuts or tears as they can cause infection if you are unaware of them and can't treat them properly. Pyrex/Borosilicate Glass if broken doesn't shatter like most other glass items do. If you accidentally drop your No.48 plug it may not break right away but the glass will be weakened to where at some point it could break. When broken you won't get tiny shattered slivers of glass, you will experience big chunks of broken glass when it come to the glass that the No.48 is made out of.
The design of the No.48 is actually a pretty good design if you ask me. I love the bulbous tapered head as it makes for easier insertion. Having a short shaft in a sense between the bottom of the bulb and the base. I see this important as with another plug I own there isn't much of a shaft it is the tip of the plug then, well the flared base. When it comes to plugs that has no type of shaft in between the bulb and base they usually tend to be pushed out or hard to hold into place. Having the shaft in the middle is one thing that would draw me in since I don't want to take the time to work up to the point of getting the Icicles No.48 in place just for it to easily pop out especially upon orgasm.
The base for the Icicles No.48 is a flower with petals around the bottom. The petals are not even nor the same size which just like a regular flower all petals are different. Since the No.48 is hand blown and crafted they will all differ a little from each other. Having the petals being different and not matching as you can see in the above photo it doesn't take away from the plug itself. If you want to place the No.48 on an even surface and stand it up on the base you can but it will be a little lopsided. Glass can also contain air bubbles on the inside of the glass this is pretty common in hand blown glass toys. I didn't see any air bubbles in mine but you might find them in yours. Air bubbles in the glass are okay as long as they are on the inside, to me they actually add to it. You may also see small scratches those could also be on the inside/underside of the glass and not actually on the surface. Please make sure that you do check by running your nail or finger tips over the surface of the Icicles No.48 plug as well as any other glass toy to make sure nothing catches on the scratches if they are on the surface.
When it comes to function, the Icicles No.48 is for those who enjoy anal penetration or for males prostate stimulation. Even though there is no type of curve on the Icicles No.48 a make could still get prostate stimulation. No prostate? That would be us ladies, you don't have to have a prostate to enjoy anal play. Anal play can give you a full feeling when being double penetrated. Anal stimulation can also make your vaginal orgasms so much stronger.
Heat It Up Or Cool It Down
The Icicles No.48 as well as all other glass toys can be warmed up or chilled for those who are into temperature play. There are a few precautions you will want to take when it comes to temperature play and how to achieve the temperature you are wanting. I will post what the Icicles box says even though I do NOT agree with it as well as I will post how I would go about the temperature play.
Heat It Up!
Hot Hot Hot.....
Warm Warm Warm
To warm up your Icicles No.48 you will want to do one of the following:
Run your Icicles No.48 under warm or hot tap water. If you don't want to stand at the sink and wait for your No.48 to get to your desired temperature you can also soak it in a cup of water at the temperature you wish to use.
Make sure you test the temperature on your wrist before inserting but also remember your vaginal or anal tissue is WAY more sensitive then your outer skin.
The inside flap of the Icicles No.48 mentions what I did above about running the No.48 under warm tap water. The one thing I DO NOT agree with when it comes to the heating it up part the Pipedream package states that you can place your Icicles No.48 into the microwave. I personally do NOT recommend this option as glass can heat unevenly and the part you may test will feel warm while other parts can be super hot! Do NOT microwave or boil for temperature play.
Cool It Down!
To cool down your Icicles No.48 you will want to do one of the following:
Run your Icicles No.48 under cold tap water or you can soak it in a cup of cold tap water. If you are wanting a more frigid temperature you can place your Icicles No.48 into a cup of cold tap water with a few pieces of ice in the cup. You could very well place your Icicles No.48 in the refrigerator as well for a few minutes to get it chilled. Just as heating up your Icicles No.48 you will want to test the coldness of the plug before inserting into your vagina or anus. Cooling it down Pipedream style, the package states to place the Icicles into the freezer I personally would NOT recommend this option. Here is why I do NOT recommend placing your Icicles toys in the freezer have you ever gotten your tongue stuck to an ice cube or popsicle? Seen people get their tongues stuck to poles in the movies? Well I am sure you get where I am going with this, I do NOT want anything getting stuck to my insides especially in one of the most sensitive places ever.
You can also use your Icicles pieces at room temperature as they are usually pretty chilly to the touch. I don't place mine in cold water or hot water for temperature play. I use mine at room temperature.
Glass maintains temperature very well so if you are going to use your No.48 chilled it will eventually warm up to your body temperature and will hold that temperature for a good bit.
If you are the type who likes to switch between temperatures I would steer clear of doing so with the same piece. Going from one temperature to the next can weaken the glass in your Icicles No.48 which means it can eventually break when subject to heat or cold temperatures. If you go from HOT to COLD right away or COLD to HOT you can expect the glass to eventually break. It may NOT be the first time or the tenth but eventually it will give way.
As always I absolutely LOVE the packaging of the Icicles line from Pipedream. In no way at all is the packaging for the Icicles No.48 discreet and for me that is okay for others it could be a problem. I love the peek-a-boo windows where you can open the flap and take a peek to see what's inside when you get it in the mail (you can view this photo in the intro section above). As you can see the Icicles No.48 box has photos of the plug all over the box. It does state that the No.48 is a hand blown glass massager but also says great for anal play on the back description.
Once you open the box and slide out the foam insert you will find your No.48 plug nestled in its foam bed. When it comes to the safety aspect on protecting your Icicles from breaking Pipedream has it right. In all of the glass toys I do own Pipedream is the ONLY one who has their products inserted into a foam holder that protects it from impact. Having the foam insert makes the packaging that the Icicles No.48's original packaging great for storage as well. You can choose to purchase a padded toy pouch from your local toy store or from a online store. If you choose to toss the packaging of the Icicles No.48 you can recycle the cardboard box and toss the foam insert. Plan to give the Icicles No.48 as a gift to your partner? The packaging is great for gift giving if you aren't giving the plug as a gift in front of others. For gift giving the packaging is great if you are giving the gift in more of an intimate setting with your partner.
Care & Storage
Being the Icicles No.48 is made of Borosilicate/Pyrex Glass cleaning it before and after each use or between orifices/partners is simple. You will want to clean your Icicles No.48 very well before and after each use. Below you will find several ways to clean your No.48 and some will actually sterilize it for you. I will mark the ways to sterilize your No.48 with () and the ways that will NOT sterilize will be marked with ().
Many Ways To Clean & Very Few Ways To Sterilize
Using an antibacterial toy cleaner whether its a spray that you simply spray on leave for a few seconds and the wipe off with a cloth or one that acts like a soap that has to be rinsed off with water. While it has the word "antibacterial" in the cleaner names does NOT mean it will 100% sterilize your plug. It will simply kill off some germs but not all.
Antibacterial soap yes like that hand soap at the sink in your bathroom. If you choose this route you will want to lather on the soap making sure you wash and rinse thoroughly before storing. You will want to rinse in warm or hot water.
Baby wipes or toy wipes, these can be used to clean off your plug but in no way will it sterilize it nor kill germs that are on the plug. Using wipes you will simply wipe the plug down completely making sure you clean every crevice. I personally use these wipes as a pre-clean method before using a toy cleaner or washing in the sink.
Boiling your glass plug WILL sterilize the No.48 for sharing between orifices, partners or just to keep yourself protected in case you had an infection you knew nothing about as signs weren't there. You can get out a pan and fill it with water place on your stove til you have a rolling boil. Using tongs easily place the plug into the pan and boil for about 5 minutes. You can either let the plug settle in the pot til the water cools of or you can use tongs to carefully remove the plug. You will want to place the HOT plug on a towel to dry as well as cool off before touching and storing.
Do NOT place the plug in cold water while still hot! 1 of 2 things will happen it will either break or weaken the glass which could assist in a break later down the road.
Top rack of the dishwasher, you can place your No.48 in the top rack of your dishwasher for a full cycle it's recommend to not use dish soap. The heat from the the dishwasher will sterilize your plug just as it does your dishes.
10% bleach to 90% water, mix up this solution and soak your No.48 for 5-10 minutes remove and rinse thoroughly and dry before storing.
You will want to use a good lubricant when inserting the No.48. Since the Icicles No.48 is made out of glass you can use any type of lubricant you wish. I was sent the Moist Personal Lubricant in the box that the Icicles No.48 arrived in which is a water based lubricant. You can use water based, silicone based, hybrid (silicone & water), or oil based lubricant. The options are endless since it is glass. I personally used a water based anal lubricant from Sliquid called Sassy Booty. I do recommend though that you choose a lubricant that is thick an doesn't run very easily. Thin lubricants tend to not last as long.
Storing your No.48 is going to be pretty simple, you can store this a few different ways.
-Padded Toy Pouch
-Sock-This will be a less bulky storage route and cheaper then using a padded toy pouch
If you can think of any other ways you can do storage I am open to hear them!
I wouldn't call me self an EXPERT or ADVANCED level anal player as I am still getting my feet wet so to speak so I had to work a bit to get the No.48 in place as it was a little on the bigger side of things for me. I felt really full while having the plug in. Seeings as the Icicles No.48 has no texture at all on the plug itself it did help with the ease of getting it into place. I love the look of the flower on the base even with its uneven petals but, that makes each one unique. Beings I have a big booty the flower wouldn't have been seen if I was using it with a partner unless I had spread my cheeks apart. The base did fit comfortably in between my cheeks even when I moved around with it in place. With the shaft being there it also helped the plug stay in place and didn't make it want to pop out like I have had happen with another plug I own.
I used the Icicles No.48 at room temperature which is cold enough for me. Once removed and cleaning it I could feel the heat it was holding in which was pretty much what my body temperature was. Since I am the ONLY one who uses my toys I used an antibacterial toy spray to clean my Icicles No.48 before storing.
I found this easy to clean as well as store. I personally use the original packaging to store most all of my toys in.
Can Be Sterilized
Size (for some)
Designed More Towards Women With The Design
I will say my overall experience was pretty positive with the Icicles No.48, but I am not sure how much use I will get out of it when it comes to the anal department as its a little on the big side for me. Maybe in the future it will get used more if not it will work great as a pussy plug.
I will rate this a 4/5
Thanks so much to Pipedream Products for sending out the Icicles No.48 free of charge in exchange for an honest & unbiased review.

So as I am adventuring into new and exciting things I was sent a list by the wonderful lady I have been working with over at Tabu Toys. Usually if something doesn't scream shove me in your body I ask if there is other things available an send a list over of things I am interested in. This go around there was only one item on the list that said "I HAVE to have" but I already had it just in a different color! So I requested some things an this is what I was sent Mater Series Mini Commander Fist Plug! Yes I wanted to try this whether it gets used anally I am unsure of but I have been looking for a pussy plug an so far everything I have tried for that job just didn't work. Tabu Toys also has the full size Master Series Stainless Steel Commander Fist Plug it weighs 8 pounds and has a hefty price tag! Will this work for its intended purpose for me? Will it work for what I want it for? Read on to find out and see if it is something you want to add to your very own collection.
The Mini Fist is designed an made for anal play with the flared base on the bottom makes it perfectly safe for anal play. Having a flared base means that it won't get swallowed into the anal cavity resulting in a embarrassing trip to the ER. On the Tabu Toys website there are many options for anal toys, the Mini Fist is considered an advanced anal toy for those who are use to having bigger toys penetrate their rear. In no way it this a beginners toy and most people will have to work up with other toys in smaller to larger sizes to prep their anus to take on the Mini Fist. The Mini Fist measures in at 4 inches long with an insertable length of 3.5 inches. The diameter is 1.5 inches which some can easily take vaginally or anally where others usually have to work up to it.
The Mini Fist weighs in at 9oz so it is pretty heavy for being on the smaller side of things.When using toys of hard materials exercise caution as you can cause damage to your body if you don't take things slow and work your way up or if thrusting to hard you can bruise your insides. If you are looking for a bigger fist that is life size of a human fist you can find that on Tabutoys as well. Fisting is the art or act of inserting a fist into the vagina or anal cavity. If you wish to try this type of play make sure you communicate with your partner an take it slow!!!!!!
The Master Series Mini Commander Fist is made out of stainless steal which is solid nonporous metal that is body safe. Stainless steal is also hypoallergenic, latex and phathalates free. Since stainless steel is a nonporous material you can share it with a partner or even between your own orifices without worrying about bacteria forming an transferring. Even though the material is porous you will want to clean between use from your partner or your own orifices. Being made of metal you can either heat it up or cool your Mini Fist down for different sensations. If you decide to engage with temperature play make sure you do it safely don't place the Mini Fist into boiling water or in the freezer for temperature play. Boiling the Mini Fist won't harm it but it can get way to hot cause burns on the skin, anus walls or vaginal walls an we do NOT want this happening! To heat up your Mini Fist place it into a cup of hot water from the tap let sit a few minutes then test the temperature on your wrist like you would test a baby's bottle after warming. When it comes to cooling down the Mini Fist you do NOT want to place it in the freezer as it can freeze to your insides like sticking your tongue to a pole out in the snow. To chill the Mini Fist fill a cup up of cold tap water you can add an ice cube or two to chill the water more let set for a few minutes before inserting.
Stainless steel is a solid hard material using this with caution is a MUST so you don't cause damage to your insides or to your partner.
While the plug is almost fully smooth aside from where the knuckles are you may need to use lubricant. To make inserting easier using a lubricant can't be very helpful even if you produce a good amount of your own natural lubricant. Stainless steel is compatible with all lube types water based, silicone, hybrid (silicone & water) as well as oil based lubes.
The Mini Fist's main function is anal stimulation whether you are male bodied or female bodied. Those who are male bodied could probably get pretty good prostate stimulation which can lead to better, longer and stronger orgasms. Those of us who are female bodied cause use the Mini Fist Plug either as an anal plug for anal stimulation or a vaginal plug if you are want to plug your vagina. Whichever way you choose to use the Mini Fist is up to you. The plug is absolutely anal safe since it has a flared base use for keeping it partially outside of the anal cavity.
The details on the Mini Fist are pretty lifelike for the most part. There are all 5 fingers which are balled up into a fist, the thumb is folded in towards the palm of the hand with the other fingers over the top. The fist is the biggest part of the plug, once the fist is in place it will taper off to the wrist where its slimmer. As mentioned in the opening of the review I stated this is NOT a beginners toy by any means. The Mini Fist is marketed towards those who are size queens/kings or those who are experienced in working up to using larger toys.
To be honest there isn't much packaging to this plug at all!! I though that it would probably come in some type of storage box or something but it didn't. Upon arrival I opened the padded mailer that it had arrived in to find a little white box just big enough for the Mini Fist to fit inside of. Along with the fist there was a lube sample for Intimate Organics Hydra Lubricant, both the fist and the lube were in plastic bags. The Mini Fist came in a plain white box that had nothing on it aside from a barcode sticker. I would say this is the most discreet packaging I have ever gotten a toy in. You can use the box for storing your Mini Fist but it will fall apart pretty quick but since its made out of stainless steel you won't have to worry about a reaction with other toys if you just toss it in the toy drawer or your toy box. When not in use if you don't share a home with others who are offended easily or little people (kids) you could place the Mini Fist on your desk an use it as a paperweight. I wouldn't say that the packing is all that grand for gift giving since there is very minimal packaging. You can however recycle all parts of the packaging.
Care & Storage
The Mini Fist requires very little care and doesn't have a proper way for storage. There are a few ways that you can clean your fist I will list them below I will play a (*) next to the ways that will sterilize your Mini Fist. You should always wash your toys before and after each an every use! This also applies when sharing between orifices and partners.
1.)Antibacterial Toy Cleaner-Follow Directions on the bottle
2.)Warm Water & Antibacterial Soap-Wash an rinse thoroughly
3.)Dishwasher Top Rack**-Place in the top rack of your dishwasher
4.)Boiling**-Place in a pan on the stove an boil for 5 minutes using tongs to remove be careful not to burn yourself
5.)10% Bleach to 90% Water**-Soak for around 5-10 minutes then rinse thoroughly
Storing is super easy you can either place the Mini Fist back in the small box it arrived in, purchase a toy pouch or just toss it in your toy box or drawer.
So here it is what you all have been waiting for right!? How did I manage with the Mini Fist , well truth be told I was able to successfully get it in place and as its intended purpose. I did use two other toys to work up to the Mini Fist. The 2 toys I used were glass dildos that Tabutoys doesn't carry on their site. Due to the awkwardness on the shape when it comes to the Mini Fist it felt weird going it but it wasn't a struggle to get it in place especially after working my way up. I used two different lubes as well the first one was Sliquid Sassy Booty water based lubricant for anal play. While the Sassy Booty lube is one of my faves I wanted to use my silicone hybrid lubricant from Spunk Lube, I have the one linked here but I also have the Spunk Pink that is also they same hybrid formula just PINK and that is the one I used. Between both of the lubricants I was pretty set on being properly lubricated. While being plugged I added in some clitoral stimulation using my fave clit vibe that quickly died! I grabbed my wand messager an went back to my fun that I was having. The Mini Fist gave a decent amount of pressure while inside. I was worried due to the weight compared to any other plugs I have used the Mini Fist was the heaviest. I know I have strong anal muscles so I wasn't worried about the plug just falling out due to the weight it had but I was worried about a pulling sensation since it has decent weight.
While I had no issues getting the Mini Fist in place after working up to be able to take it, I am not so sure it will ever be used anally again. With that said it will more then likely become a paperweight on my desk which is all good for me.
If you are into larger toys being used anally I would recommend checking out the Mini Fist.
Since it was a preference issue an not a quality issue I will def give this item a 5 star rating.

In my adventure to try out new stuff I reached out to Pipedream I have been lusting after several of their items for quite sometime but either I found things I wanted over the items I was lusting after or the site I shopped didn't offer some of the items. So I was sent a list of categories that needed reviews on some items. I knew nothing about what I was getting til the package arrived on my doorstep. Upon opening my box I found 3 items inside this is the first item I used out of the box.
I am not big into anal play so when I came across the Fetish Fantasy Limited Edition Mini Luv Plug, I was hoping it could be a multipurpose item such as a pussy plug as well as a butt plug which is its actual use. I love that it is small and not very intimidating which would work well for beginners. Male or Female bodied you can get use out of this cute anal plug. If you aren't use to using big toys vaginally you can also use this as a pussy plug which is great as well. Being tiny the measurements aren't much either, the box says that the Mini Luv Plug
is 3.25 inches long I measured it myself and got 3 inches long with 2.5 inches of that being insertable, the diameter is 1.12 inches so it isn't that thick which is great when beginning with a circumference if 3.5 inches. The width of the base is about an inch wide.
There isn't a enough length for any type of thrusting action if you are into that when it comes to anal play. Since there is a flared base this is safe for anal use with easy removal, please note though NOT to use BIGGER toys before using the Mini Luv Plug. In the base is where you will find the decorative crystal. Being made out of anodized aluminum its solid, hard, sleek and nonporous.Having a tapered head that is on the thin side makes for easy insertion whether it be for anal play or vaginal play. Please note you don't want to just ram this in your tush, take it slow an know that any pain is a sign to stop you shouldn't have pain that is unbearable. Make sure to use plenty of lubrication to help with the ease of insertion. There is absolutely no texture to this wonderful plug.
I know some people like to travel with their toys whether it be in business, a mini sexy vacation or meeting up with a partner, I would say that the Luv Plug Mini is pretty travel friendly but know if it is found people will know what it is.
Material Info :)
The Mini Luv Plug is made out of anodized aluminum, meaning that it is a solid material that is latex free, hypoallergenic as well as being nonporous. I love that it is nonporous, meaning that it can't soak up the bodily fluids from either your anal cavity or your vagina. Aluminum can be sterilized and I will discuss that later on in the care section of the review. Aluminium toys are great for temperature play. If you like your toys warmed up or cooled down you can do that with this plug.
To cool it down you can place the Mini Luv Plug into a cup of ice water and let it sit for a few minutes. Do not ever put this plug into the fridge or freezer, think tongue stuck to a pole in the winter time; enough said on that one. Same could happen to your insides if you put this in the freezer or fridge.
To warm it up place your plug into a hot cup of tap water. You don't every want to put this into the microwave or boiling water to heat up for playtime as it can cause burns!!!! Using the hottest tap water will work fine but make sure you do a temperature test as placing something super hot into the anus or vagina can cause burns.
I personally just use my Mini Luv Plug right out of the package at room temperature, which is still pretty chilly when inserted which is enough coolness for me. The plug is pretty warm once you pop it out as it easily warms up to your body temperature.
With simple elegant but not discreet packaging the box is good for storage to a point, like most cardboard boxes it will eventually give way an need replaced. It states on the from of the box that inside is the Fetish Fantasy Series Mini Luv Plug. You can see that there are photos of the Luv Plug all over the box. The only information given for the plug is on the back of the box which states the measurements, what its made out of, its body safe, how to clean and care of the plug. Even though there is very little writing on the box it is still VERY informative which most toy packages are not. Inside you will find a black shiny plastic tray that your Mini Luv Plug rests in. This tray doesn't allow the plug to roll or flop around inside of the box which is a plus to some to me I could careless. If you are worried about people knowing what this item is you will want to store it where no one will find it unless they are being super nosy as it isn't discreet in any way, shape or form.
Caring & Storing
The Mini Luv Plug is simple and very easy to care for I will list the ways below.
1.) Antibacterial Toy Cleaner-Spray down let soak for a minute then wipe clean
2.) Warm/hot water with Antibacterial soap, wash toy super good and rinse thoroughly towel dry or let air dry before storing.
3.) Toy Wipe/Baby Wipes-You can simply wipe them down with toy wipes or baby wipes for simple clean up.
4.) Alcohol-You can use alcohol prep pads to wipe down your plug.
5.) 10% Bleach Solution-This one will sterilize the plug so that you can share it with your partners.
While the plug is waterproof, I am not sure I would recommend tossing it into a boiling pot of water or tossing it in the dishwasher the reason being I am not 100% sure how the crystal is held into place. If the crystal is held in place with a it can come loose and you will lose the crystal. From what I can tell its molded into place an doesn't seem like it would budge so the choice is yours on submitting it to high temperatures.
To store you can either get a toy pouch or use the box, being metal you won't have to worry about material reactions with other toys.
Aluminum is compatible with all lubricants on the market so if you like to use silicone or oil based lubricants you are in the clear to use those types of lubricants on the Luv Plug Mini.
My overall experience with the Luv Plug Mini was a success and I found it to be the size I need. It was easy to insert using a good lube, I used Sassy Booty from Sliquid Organics; its a water based lubricant. This was the right size for me not too big and not to small. I did have fear of the base not being wide enough since the plug itself measures in a little over the inch mark in diameter but I didn't have any issues with that. Inserting it vaginally I didn't need to use lube from a bottle as I am naturally lubricated with no issues. Whether you use it for backdoor or vaginal play you don't have to worry about it slipping out like you do with some other plugs on the market. I was worried with the weight that is would easily slip out but it didn't which is a plus in my book.
Overall I give this a 5/5
I would like to see a similar plug that vibrates but that isn't a huge need for most. I just simply used my We-Vibe Salsa for clitoral stimulation. I did wear my plug for 20-30 minutes with no discomfort I was up and down walking and everything around the house. I had NO issues with it at all. Only downfall I truly had which isn't a manufacture issue is if you have a big ole booty you can't see the crystal so that takes away from the looks of the plug while in use.
