I’ve become a real Blush fan girl recently. I’ve been sent a bunch of their beautiful and multi coloured toys and have become a fan of many of them. So when I received the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug from Peepshow Toys it had a high bar to live up to.
The whole Avant range tickles my fancy in the worst way. The striking banded colours and delicious shapes make it very recognisable and have me in full blown collector mode. Just like with Pokemon, I want them all.
The Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug arrives in gorgeously sleek packaging which reminds me of something from the Apple shop. Through the product window I can see the P6 and it’s calling to me already.
Blush have really taken on board the body safe ethos and every toy I’ve reviewed of theirs recently has been made of platinum cured silicone. The Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug is no exception. Holding the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug in my hand I’m not prepared for how much I like the texture of the silicone. It’s so soft, it feels squishier even than the Avant dildos I’ve reviewed.
In my head I feel like the right description for the silicone of the P6 is juicy. It makes me want to bite it. It’s soft and almost mouth-watering. Is it normal to get these feelz over a buttplug? The silicone is very matt, but not the sticky grabby texture of the Real Nude dildos. Its smoother and doesn’t attract all the lint in the universe, unlike some matt silicones. It totally earns the name “Beyond Silicone”.
Being silicone the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug is totally non-porous, phthalate free and easily sterilised by boiling it. This really is the standard in this industry now. Using porous toys in your butt is just ick. You need to be sure you can clean the toy properly to avoid problems and if it’s absorbing bacteria you simply can’t.
There is a flexibility to the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug. I can bend it in half. On opening the P6 I did wonder if this would make insertion difficult. I find with butt stuff usually a more solid object makes for an easier insertion due to the increased resistance.
The signature Avant colour stripes are present in the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug. Three colour bands work their way up the plug. The base is a deep olive green, this is followed by a nice crisp white and a lilac band at the tip. If you’d told me these were the colours I’d probably have pulled a face and yet they work ridiculously well together. Those with a little Pride knowledge will no doubt recognise these as the Genderqueer Pride flag colours.
In shape the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug differs from a traditional plug. Instead of a tear drop bulb there is a conical tapering one. This has a small jump down to a thick and short neck. At the bottom is a generous oblong base.
I’m pleased at the size of the base, but worry that it’s not going to be issues of the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug sliding inside me I’ll have to worry about. The small difference between the neck and the bulb makes me wonder if the P6 will stay anchored inside me.
When buying an anal toy, the most important thing to look at is always the base. If a toy doesn’t have an adequately flared base its not safe for anal play. Anal toys have a habit of wandering. If there is no flare to the base you could find your plug travelling up inside your anal passage. Nobody needs a trip to the A&E to remove their butt plug so make sure your anal toys are all flared. A good rule of thumb is the base should be the widest part of the toy.
User Friendly Size
The Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug measures 4 inches in length. The base is super-safe at just over 3 inches in length and just under 2 inches in width. This baby is going nowhere. At the widest point the bulb is 4 inches around, and the neck is 3. The Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug is a good size plug, and that mega squishy soft silicone makes it great for those new to anal play as its very user friendly.
Because of its silicone surface you need to be careful with your lube choices when using the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug. Only water-based lube is suitable for use with this plug, anything else could potentially damage it.
I did wonder if the super soft body of the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug would cause issues on insertion but I needn’t have worried. It slid inside me like a dream. I would go as far as to say it’s easily the most comfortable anal insertion I’ve ever had. The soft body is so kind and despite the P6 having a much thicker neck than I like it wasn’t a problem at all.
Once inside me the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug felt almost more like a dildo than a plug. The gentle taper to the bulb doesn’t feel intense, but comfortable. The base is made of the same soft silicone and so despite its generous size it’s not at all uncomfortable slotted between my cheeks.
My Kingdom for a Bigger Bulb
Although there is very little difference between the bulb and neck I could feel the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug as it locked into place. Much to my surprise it did stay in place much better than I expected. However, if I moved too much or inserted anything vaginally it would start to come out. Ok, I can push it back in place but it’s a little distracting.
The sensation of wearing the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug is very nice. It gives you that anally full sensation without any discomfort. It turns me on as soon as it’s inserted, and I dearly wish that the bulb was bigger, so I could wear it for longer periods.
That’s pretty much my only dislike about the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug. Apart from that, it’s a deliciously comfortable plug.
Thank you so much to the awesome team at Peepshow Toys for sending me the Avant Pride P6 Beyond Silicone Plug for review. I was sent this item free of charge and in exchange for an honest and impartial review.
