Doc Johnson Mood Naughty and CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit - Standing Up

Comparison: Doc Johnson Mood Naughty vs. CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 trainer set, and the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit are my two most favorite butt plug sets. They are both spaced appropriately with 0.25” diameter increases between plugs. Both sets are made of high-quality, easy to clean silicone and are sold at a great price. Without reading this, I could recommend either set to anyone reading this. However, if you read below, you will see the similarities and differences that might make one plug the best choice for you.

Size

Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 Trainer Set vs. CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit

The CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit contains plugs that are 1”, 1.25”, and 1.5” in diameter. The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Trainer Set contains plugs that are 0.75”, 1”, and 1.25” in diameter. While you can buy an additional larger plug, the Mood Naughty set may be more limiting if you already have any experience with anal play.

Length

The Doc Johnson plugs are longer at each comparable girth – the plugs are 3”, 4”, and 5” in length, while the CalExotics plugs are 3”, 3.5”, and 4.25” in length.

Neck Girth

The Doc Johnson plugs have less girthy necks – the largest Doc Johnson plug has a neck girth of 1.7”, which is the same neck girth as the smallest CalExotics plug.

Base Length

The CalExotics plugs have a shorter base, which means that vaginal sex while wearing one of these plugs is possible for more people. The Doc Johnson plugs have longer, thinner bases – and these bases are curved and may stretch out when flattened.

The longest CalExotics base is 2.4”, but one side or tip of that plug is 0.9”, which means that vaginal sex is more likely. The shortest Doc Johnson base is 2.2” (2.45” stretched), with one side or tip being 0.75” (0.9-0.95” stretched), while the longest is 3” (3.4” stretched), with the tip being 1.3” (1.4-1.5” stretched).

Material

Both are firm silicone, but the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs feel slightly less firm. Realistically, if you want a softer silicone, neither of these will fit your needs. They are both similarly firm, but high-quality silicone.

The CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit plugs have a smooth satin finish that has been less likely to attract dust and dirt than the matte finish of the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs.

However, on the largest CalExotics plug, the seam is more raised than on the Doc Johnson plugs. Personally, I did not find this noticeable during use, but you might.

Ease of Cleaning

Both plugs are easy to clean. While the seams on the CalExotics anal exerciser kit plugs are more noticeable, they do not pose any difficulties during cleaning. In fact, the only crevice that seems to hold dirt or grime is the Doc Johnson logo engraved into the base of the Doc Johnson plugs.

Overall Design

I personally prefer the CalExotics plugs here, as I like the solid, short base. This allows the plugs to be used during vaginal sex as well. The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs are longer and may occlude the vagina or rub uncomfortably against the penetrating partner.

Both bases are sufficiently long, but the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs are more flexible – for better or worse. Some people may like this because they may fit comfortably. Personally, the thinness of the material meant that they uncomfortably pressed into my butt cheeks.

Another concern is one that I have seen among beginners on Reddit – the flexibility seems to lead some to a feeling of unease. While the base is long enough that this should not be a concern, some users have worried about the flexible base being sucked in. Given that anal stretching and butt plug kits are often used by those with less experience, this leads me to prefer the CalExotics plugs.

Below, I compare the design of the two sets in more detail.

Neck Girth for Anal Stretching

The CalExotics plugs are slightly girthier, even when comparing comparable plugs. This is good for anal stretching, but it is less desirable if you want to wear a plug for an extended period of time.

Neck Girth for Extended Wear Comfort

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty set has a narrow neck compared to the CalExotics set (and to many other plugs). This is great for beginners, and it is also good for more comfortable extended wearing.

Ease of Removal

CalExotics has a firm and inflexible base, for better or worse. When it comes to ease of removal, the CalExotics anal exerciser kit plugs are easier to remove for two reasons. One, the base of the plug is more substantial and heavier than the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty base. Two, the neck is thicker, and as Squirrelmunk can attest, a thick neck is slightly easier to remove.

Best for Use During Vaginal Sex

T-bar bases are generally not ideal for use during vaginal sex, but I have personally found that some plugs have bases that are sufficiently long (and thus safe) but also not too long. Anogenital distance – in this case, the distance between the anus and vagina – varies from person to person, so it is impossible to give a blanket recommendation. This is why I provide measurements. Either way, the CalExotics Anal Exerciser kit plugs have bases that are shorter than the Doc Johnson plugs, which means that more people can enjoy these plugs during sex.

The median anogenital distance is approximately 1.5 inches, and in one Spanish study, the range was between 1.09 and 1.9 inches. Using these measurements, most of these plugs should be fine, however it is important to realize that the touching may make vaginal penetration uncomfortable for the person with the penis even if the bases are shorter than this distance.

Which Should You Buy?

If you want a set of butt plugs that you can use during sex, I would recommend the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit. The shorter base ensures that most people can use them during sex, but this isn’t necessarily the case for the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs.

If you want a narrower neck for more comfortable wear, I would recommend the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty set.

If you want a girthier neck for more anal stretching, I would recommend the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit.

If you have some anal play experience, I would recommend the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit since the girth is larger.

Either way, if you want a high-quality silicone anal trainer or stretching set, I think you will be happy with either set.
