I’ve had this post sitting in draft status for a month now with only that word. Wow. It’s not that I don’t know how to write about this plug; I just think that one word sums it up so perfectly that I don’t know what else to add. But let me take a stab at it anyway.
This was the second plug I ever bought, before I realized what a big difference a small increase in diameter makes. All I knew was that it looked awesome and I had to have it in me. In retrospect, it may have been a little bit ambitious. At 2-3/8″ in diameter and 6″ long as I measure it now, this plug is definitely not for beginners. But I was determined, and with some patience, and a lot of lube, I got it in.
That feeling. You always remember that first time you get the big one in. Once you get it past the critical point, and it begins to slide in on its own, it hits you: a feeling of accomplishment, relief, pain, and pleasure all at once. That feeling was exaggerated by this plug’s design. It doesn’t have as gradual of a taper as most plugs; it goes from about 1-1/2″ in the middle to the full width very quickly, then back down to a long 1-1/2″ wide neck just as quick. Because it doesn’t taper, I would recommend using another plug to warm up with. That said, the design does keep it in place very well for long-term wear.
The neck, in particular, facilitates that goal. I find the length of it to be perfect for my anatomy. It pushes most of the mass of the plug deeper inside of me where it feels better, and its width gives me the most satisfying stretch of any plug I own. I may have some plugs with wider necks, but it’s the shape of it, the bulb-neck-base ratio, the length and gentle curve of it that makes all the difference. It’s just comfortable.
Likewise, the base of the Large Severin makes it a great long-term plug. Like the BOSS Silicone Stopper, it has an ideal hour-glass shape. Mine also arrived with its sharp edges from the molding process trimmed off, which significantly reduces irritation. All manufacturers should do this!
What don’t I like about this plug? Well, the two bulb design does nothing for me. Some people describe the area between the bulbs as a nice “resting” place to get acclimated to the plug before proceeding to the larger bulb. For me, it’s not really long enough to rest comfortably and you certainly can’t feel it once it’s inside you. Truthfully it just serves as a space to collect waste. I don’t want to be too gross, but this is my least favorite plug to clean off after a long session.
The plug can also be a little hard to get in. Like I said, you definitely have to warm up first. I’ve been using this plug several times a week for the past month or so, and I can report that it gets easier to put in the more you use it. I’m definitely to a point where I can go straight to it without any trouble. But I also know that if I didn’t practice putting it in at least once a week, my butt would revert to its “normal” state and I would have to start all over. That makes this plug something you kind of have to work on to use, but it is definitely worth it.
I will say that I have found that it is easier to put this plug in when you bear down and push out a bit as it, rather counter-intuitively, relaxes your anal muscles more. Experienced readers may think that’s old news, but it took me a while to figure that out.
I also own the medium version of this plug which, despite having the same shape, feels
This is a really great plug. It’s a good stretch with a nice full feeling, and, despite the size, very comfortable for long-term wear.
Greetings. I discovered your blog while google searching long term wear, so firstly I’d like to thank you for making that part of your review. I actually have the Severin medium in right and have had it in for about fifteen hours. I own the large and love the feel of it but find it difficult to get it in all the way, even with lots of warm up with the medium. I am new to long term wear so I am hoping that as I get used to being stretched it will be easier to get this guy in. The last time I wore the medium I kept it in about ten hours, including overnight while sleeping. The time before that I had it in six hours while going hrough my day. When you wear a plug, how long do you usually go when wearing a plug? Any adverse affects or damage done?
Hi, thanks for the comment. I’m glad to hear there are others interested in long-term wear.
When I wear a plug, I usually go for about 24 hours. Sleeping is especially fun while plugged. Waking up and feeling all filled up is like nothing else.
Sometimes I’ll go plugged several days at a time. The longest I’ve gone continuously was nine days, with short breaks to allow for normal bodily functions. I have not so far noticed any adverse effects, but I generally stick to smaller plugs when I go that long (like the size of your medium Severin). In my experience, the anal muscles are very elastic. They can be trained to be stretched out with large plugs and long-term wear, but will revert to their normal state after taking a break for a day or two.
So with that in mind, it’s important to use common sense. If you continue to go plugged longer and longer, and you start noticing problems down there, just back off for a while and things will go back to normal.
It sounds to me like you’re going about things the right way: gradually increasing the amount of time you spend plugged, and using the right size for you. It’s not a contest.
But I will say that, even though the large Severin is so much bigger than the medium, I actually find it more comfortable for long-term wear. I couldn’t go more than about 12 hours with the medium size because the base starts to cut into me. The base on the large version is just perfect.
Best of luck with your future plugging endeavors!
Hey, nice reviews.
You said you have quite a collection, any chance of a list/pic with them put all together? Do you know of tristan taorminos plug tristan 2? I can only highly recommend it. especially the one with room spared for a vibrating egg; the trick is, if you leave it out, the shaft is flexible and very comfortable.
One more question, how do you make sure when out and about that your plugs stay put? e.g. if you didnt bring a harness and bought a new plug like the BRAVO siliocne stopper? And don’t you get uncofortable after a while without relubing? (I found that some plugs stick after drying up, which I solve by using them with a condom).
Uh, and Do you have any glass plugs? I am really curious how they feel, but they are quite expensive, so I want one that convinces me exactly in size and shape..
all the best, and keep updating, there is so many of us that like to read about this i think..
Have you ever tried a Tantus Cowboy Bronco? It may be just because I’m a lady, but I found it to be VERY intemidating. I’d love if you’d try it for yourself. I got it cheap, like $20 on Amazon when it’s usually $45.
Hi Anna. I’ve considered this plug in the past, but given the size of the neck compared to the rest of the plug, I don’t think it would stay in very well. It may be fun for playing around, but I like to buy plugs I can wear all day. I hope it makes your butt happy though. Keep working at it. 🙂
I found your page while google for experiences and long term wear.
Thanks for your nice reviews including all interesting facts for long term wear. That kind of reviews the world is waiting for 🙂
I also own the Tantus Ryder and i agree with your review. It seems Tantus read this already. The Ryder I bought a few months ago has no sharp edges left, they are trimmed of like the Serverin shown above. So I wear the Ryder for many hours without any adverse effect.
Thanks, Chris. I may have to pick up a new version of the Ryder. It looks like they changed the base completely. It is much thicker. Compare this to this.
I wonder if Tantus hires consultants. Will work for plugs. 😉
