G-Plug – G-Vibe
When I received my first G-Vibe product, I popped it right into my vagina without a hint of company research. (I actually did quite a bit of instructional manual research, because G-Vibe’s debut toy of the same name is a crazy looking contraption.)
You can hardly blame me. The G-Plug is arguably the world’s most adorable butt plug. (Sorry, Tinglers.) At a diameter of just a little over an inch and a length maybe twice that, it’s the smallest rechargeable plug on the market. It’s available in two sizes, the larger boasting a diameter of an inch and a half. It’s constructed of smooth, soft, silicone, and mine is pink.
Not until I sat down to write this review did I decide to look up the manufacturer’s story. Clicking “about us” at gvibe.com put a picture of this guy in my face.
I can only assume this is Jack Romanski, an engineer specializing in silicones for the space industry turned sex toy designer. It was Jack’s frustrated search for a unique innovation that led to creation of the G-Vibe. The rest, they say, is history. G-Vibe’s slogan, they say, is “orgasm delivery.”
But enough about that guy. Let’s talk about my butt… er, I mean, my toy.
The G-Plug features six vibration and pulsation modes. All are buzzy and powerful. It’s rechargeable and wireless. One full charge will net up to four hours of vibration. It’s quiet, waterproof, and silicone. The bud sits atop a bendable shaft for optimal comfort. Its top attribute, according to the website, is “ergonomic design, fancy color.” So basically, it has it all.
I took my G-Plug to bed with Rashad, my Lelo Siri, and a healthy serving of Sliquid. After Siri and Rashad had settled into their roles, I began to insert G-Plug. He’s wireless, though, and his button is on his base, so I re-evaluated, turned him on, and started again. We’d barely gotten anywhere before I accidentally turned him off. What followed was a frustrated fifteen seconds that I will take complete blame for, because I didn’t read the instruction manual before we began. More on that later.
Once things got going again, they were nice, then uncomfortable, then terrible, then amazing. Realize that my experience might not be yours, especially if you’re a practiced anal player.
The silicone felt good. Really super good. When the toy was almost all the way in, it started to feel large. I know, I know. The smallest rechargeable plug on the market felt big to me. But you’ve got to remember, part of what makes this plug so small is its length. It’s actually the same diameter as the Tantus Perfect Plug Plus, the larger of my anal Tantus twins.
The terribleness came when I thought the plug was all the way in. I was saddened to think that the cutest plug I’d ever laid eyes on, obviously of superior quality and design, might just not be for me. Contributing to this was my hesitation that the relatively small base might not withstand the pull of my anus and get sucked right in. This fear was also 100% my fault. Had I really examined the thing, noticed the dramatic size difference between the base and the stem, and felt how solid the base is, I would have played more freely.
As you may have guessed, the plug was not, at that point, all the way in. The moment it slid into place, I felt that warm feeling of fullness that’s conjured only by double penetration or embracing a unicorn in the springtime rain. I thought, “this IS the plug for me,” reminded myself to make Michelle try one, and saw hearts, stars, and rainbows.
But back to the trouble turning it on and switching gears.
Operating the G-Plug is actually obscenely simple. No holding down buttons on this guy, no separate controls for modes and speeds. To turn the G-Plug on, you press its single button once. To get to the next mode, you press it again. And so on and so on until you’ve made it through all six, at which point a further press of the button will turn it off.
Of course, if you’re used to toggling and holding down buttons, you just might get confused, and your confusion will be intensified because something DOES happen when you hold down the button. A light starts flashing. That, my friends, means your toy is in remote control mode.
Remote control mode?!?! Yes. There is a remote control mode. To use it, you must purchase the sold-separately G-Ring, a finger vibrator in its own right. At first I thought the G-Ring was silly. Maybe a decent finger vibe but more likely a toy wearing too many hats. Now I think it’s genius.
I would love to wear a G-Ring. I would love to control my G-Plug without messing with its base. I would love to simultaneously use it clitorally. I will definitely snag one, and I will definitely do all of those things.
Do I recommend the G-Plug? Yes. Didn’t you hear me just say I’m going to recommend it to Michelle? Who, yes, I sometimes consider while masturbating? It’s a beautiful toy for any level of anal experience and a high end product for a reasonable price. Need further assurance? Mine now lives in my toy chest’s exclusive TOP DRAWER.
