Jollies LunaThe first thing you should know about the Jollies / Chavez Dezignz Luna is that it is large: 6″ long and 1.5″ in diameter. Get out your ruler/measuring tape and visualize this. Then visualize it up your ass. The Luna takes home the trophy for being the biggest anal toy to occupy my ass thus far.

But I was willing to wrestle with my ass, because the Luna’s curvy, unorthodox shape intrigued me. It’s molded from an actual rectum, and according to Jollies, its shape is meant to “resist the expulsive power of the rectal muscles during orgasm.” Plus, it’s shaped like my favorite butt plug on the planet. Only a lot bigger. And made of 100% silicone. But maybe, I thought, it would be just as good, or even better.

Using the Luna in my butt, though, I quickly developed several pet peeves with it…

  1. Why does an anal toy have to be six freaking inches long? Really, I don’t get it. Thankfully, getting the Luna in my ass is not as tricky as I assumed it would be based on its size. But the length does not seem beneficial (my butt doesn’t perceive of the length), and in fact makes removal of this toy really awkward. It just keeps coming and coming…
  2. Up close, it smells. Like a mixture of rubber and ass. After being liberally sprayed with a 10% bleach solution.
  3. The base, oh god, the base. I cannot overstate how unnecessarily thick and wide this base is. The base is great if you’re looking to decorate your home with the Luna. It’s horrible if you want it to fit between your ass cheeks. No matter what I do, the Luna creeps out of my butt — not completely, but enough that the base rests outside of my cheeks. So unless I’m sitting down, I feel like the Luna is trying to escape.

Now, this is not to say that the Luna feels bad in my ass or anything. It feels decent. Except for the base, it does not feel awkward. But it doesn’t feel phenomenal, and the unique shape doesn’t feel, well, unique. It feels like any old butt plug, only it sort-of flunks the plugging part. Okay, not flunks, since it doesn’t slip out completely. It gets a D.

But why stop at the intended orifice? With a condom on it, I tried the Luna vaginally. It felt awkward one way, but another resulted in something interesting: the Luna locking into place inside me. Even in my vag, the Luna’s base is large, but I easily moved it out of the way to enjoy some clit stimulation. If you are looking for a dildo that will set up camp in your vagina and not budge, the Luna can do that very well. I doubt you’d want to fuck yourself with it, though.

To end on a high note, I want to mention that although I hate the Luna’s base with a passion, it does have finger grips and a rougher texture than the rest of the toy. That is pretty damn cool — innovative, even — and shows an ingenuity not often present in butt plugs. But somehow, simultaneously, the Luna is an example of a plug being designed without the entire ass area being considered. Toy designers, behold: the all-important ass cheeks.

[This toy is no longer available because the manufacturer, Chavez Dezignz, has ceased production for the time being. They might return to toy-making eventually — I’ll let you know.]

    The base does look chunky. Also, the idea that it smells after sanitizing bugs me — is it low grade silicone do you think?

  • Hey! Finally started following people’s blogs instead of just bugging them on Edenfantasys 😛

    I think Jollie’s toys are always so different- It’s cool, but they’re usually expensive enough to make them something I end up having to watch from afar rather than directly participate in. I’m too cheap to take chances on something I couldn’t make work, one way or another, and none of their toys are designed for thrusting to my knowledge. So, kudos to you for experimenting! Though, I’ve never heard of a Jollie’s toy that makes me more than slightly curious in the “Hm, that’s neat” kind of way.

  • @Saraid: I don’t think so. It’s 100% silicone. The two other Jollies toys I have — Mr. Man and Rider — don’t smell like this. I think it has to do with it being an anal toy, but I do not like it.

    @Darling Dove: Hey there! Actually, Jollies has several toys that are made for thrusting: the Jack, the Wave, and Mr. Man, off the top of my head. I really love my Mr. Man, and when turned upside down, it hits my G-spot curiously well.

  • I’ll have to look at the jack and the wave- though, I suppose I was just referring to Jollie’s more iconic selection, the innovative stuff.
    Mr Man I would be worried about making sure it was completely clean. I’m a clean freak about toys and the thought of not being able to scrub inside it would drive me nuts, plus not having a way to ensure total dryness. It’d kill me! And thus, another reason I’m happy I am not a guy.. since almost all male masturbators suffer that dilemma

  • @Darling Dove: Yeah, I understand your fears. I have had no trouble cleaning Mr. Man, though. Water flows through the hole without a hitch. I use a toothbrush at the hole. If you wanted to be really thorough, you could buy something like this to clean it out. It’s a little more work, but it’s a pretty fantastic dildo, so it’s worth it.

    Boiling Luna might deodorize it. Storing it in a pouch with a few soap nuts might help, too.

  • @Sexorcism: I doubt boiling will get the smell out if bleach can’t. Storing it with something deodorizing is a good idea, though.

    Ass and rubber huh… not something I’d like my plug to smell like.

  • Selective Sensualist

    Yeah, what’s up with the uncomfortable bases on butt plugs?

    I wonder how well this would work for prostate stimulation . . .

  • Bri

    Pretty! But I lust after the Romp more. At least this isn’t pink.
