I got this as my first plug and love it! Prior to I had only used anal dildos, so not sure if I'd be consider a beginner or not. Either way, I was able I get this in upon first try and left in for a good 3 hours or so. The sensation was amazing and unlike anything else I had experienced anally! Once you have it inserted to the neck, you are free to do anything without fear of it moving or falling it.
As others have said, it is not too big, not too small, but the pleasure you get is well worth the spend! I have since advanced to the platinum super big end, but still prefer this for regular use and times when I want to be plugged for most of the day!
