Indigo Tries the Blush Avant P5 Plug!

7 out of 10

Pairs nicely with a nice red ale. It’s robust and got great color. Sometimes, it’s a bit strong going down, but it feels mostly good.

This plug was sent to me by Blush in exchange for a fair and honest review. You can purchase it from my friends at Betty’s Toybox or my friends at Shevibe! At the time of this publishing, it retails for about $30 (US). 

The Blush Avant P5 sits in a plastic case that has cardboard edges. It is colored the same as the Gender Fluid pride flag. From Tip to base, the colors are peach, white, purple, black and blue. It is quite large. Next to the package sit two pins. One is a They pronoun pin. The other says "Pronouns Matter."

I got to hang out with the folx from Blush again this year at Woodhull. I’ve always been a fan of Ducky and her work, so I was extra excited to see her at Woodhull and request some review toys from her. I was feeling especially enthusiastic about butt stuff that week, so I requested two plugs (but you’ll have to wait for the second review to find out what the other one is). Since it was Woodhull, and that is where I feel really accepted for my gender, I picked out the Avant P5. The P5 is a plug that is poured in the colors of the Gender-fluid flag.

I understand the craftsmanship that happens with those types of pours, and as a result, I am really impressed with the quality of this plug, especially given the low price. The colors are bold and crisp, with the lines blurring only the exact amount they should. There are no seams visible. Overall, it gives this plug a very clean and professional look that I absolutely love.

I will admit that when I looked at the plugs, I only looked at their colors, to choose which flag I wanted to fly. I didn’t pay attention to the names of the plugs themselves. However, when I looked up the Pride Line to make sure I got the specifications right, I found the names of all the pride plugs. I’m less than enthusiastic about them, honestly. There are some which are fine, like the Genderfluid one being called “Fluid,” and the Non-Binary plug, which is called “Beyond.” However, the Lesbian one is called “Beauty” and the Transgender one is called “True Blue.” It may sound silly, but I feel like taking large groups such as Lesbian and Transgender, and then pairing them down to beauty and true blue respectively feels weird. Are trans folx true blue because they are all sad? Are they all obsessed with the color blue? Why? Did I miss a memo? And what about the lesbians who aren’t obsessed wit beauty? What if that word doesn’t apply to a butch lesbian? And why on earth would beauty be the most important word associate with lesbians? These names are largely unnecessary, honestly. It’s not quite enough to put me off the toy line completely, but it does feel a bit forced.

The Blush Avant P5 sits on a shelf with a They pronoun pin and a pin that says "Pronouns Matter."It took me a week or two after receiving this plug to actually use it. This wasn’t due to lack of excitement or anything. I just hadn’t done much butt stuff for three months, and this plug isn’t small. It’s got 4.25″ of insertion, with a 1.5″ diameter. As a result, when I came back to butt stuff, it did take a little bit of warm up before I could use this plug. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for beginners. If you’re looking to step up your butt game, however, this is a great step up to the 1.5″ level. It’s easy to insert and smooth all the way down. It also has a safe base, which feels really good once inserted.

However, there are also downsides to this plug for me. Somehow, my butt just prefers smaller necks. I like size internally, but the neck on this plug is just too wide. I couldn’t manage to get it comfortable for any length of time. When I played with it inserted, it just fell out because the different between the neck and the plug itself was not big enough. There was no hope for me to wear it long-term. When I sat down, it just did not work with my cheeks and I kept slouching to try and get comfortable. That said, it’s rare that I find a plug which does work long term for me. So if your cheeks are easier to please, this could be a great plug for you.

This plug delivered exactly what I hoped. It was a hefty size, with gorgeous colors. It’s not too expensive, but it feels well-made. I don’t know if I’ll use it that often, because I prefer my plugs with narrow necks, but I am glad that I own it. I will gladly display this for all my lovers to see.
