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.
