When I first held the Lelo Bob in my hands, I realized that we were not supposed to be… because the toy had been sent to me in order to use it as a reward in a contest that I held. I had snuck a peak into the box thoroughly, though, and I enjoyed what I saw. Like Bob’s advertising picture of Lelo, looking at it made me believe I thoroughly unwrapped a costly, fragrant cigar. The Bob was sleek and beautiful despite his decidedly unclassy title, and I knew I would eventually want to try it out myself. Unfortunately, I discovered when I did that the functionality of Bob was not as good as its appealing look.
Like all Lelo toys, Bob is beautifully provided and comes with a satin drawstring bag and one-year warranty. It’s also produced from Lelo’s soft, tough silicone.
I was able to slide it in very readily because of Bob’s tiny size, and then… I could hardly feel anything. When I tightened around it, I could feel it. It felt very thin and insignificant. I don’t even use big plugs on a regular basis; the njoy pure plug medium is my go-to plug. While a beginner couldn’t take the pure plug for a while without first using something bigger, it’s certainly not size-queen material either. Bob is certainly very comfortable, but for me, part of the point of carrying a plug is to feel it, if only a bit.
Was it all bad…
There was, on the other side, a component of Bob that I could definitely feel, stuck between my lips: the handle. I read some reviews criticizing Bob’s potentially unsafe base, and although I could definitely feel it, it didn’t seem to be enough to avoid the whole toy from slipping into my ass, particularly when I sat down. I was worried that the Bob was being pushed in some way because the handle is round rather than phlanged and it seems like it could be pushed in with a little force, particularly if you used bigger items in your ass.
Bob is mainly intended for individuals with a prostate, while being usable by individuals of any gender, and I was lucky enough to try it on L. While we were 69ing, he had it, and here the handle was a plus. I liked placing my finger through the loop and slightly pulling it in and out as I blew it. He informed me afterwards that he could very obviously feel the handle as well, and that the plug felt more noticeable in his ass (than, say, the Bootie), likely because of the length of the plug. For long periods of time he didn’t see himself wearing it, but he certainly liked to fuck me with it.
As for cleaning: Bob is produced of body-safe, non-porous silicone and can be shared after being sterilized. To sterilize the plug, it can be washed with 10 percent bleach solution, placed in the dishwasher’s top shelf without soap, or boiled for at least 5 minutes. There is also no compatibility of silicone toys with silicone lubes.
So, my judgment? Bob, while quite the looker, was just not for me, although I could see lots of individuals enjoying it, most likely anal beginners.
