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.

Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Plugs

Review: Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 Set

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 set includes three plugs – a small, medium, and large butt plug. The width of the plugs are spaced out appropriately for anal training or stretching, with 0.25” increments in diameter between each plug. The packaging is relatively plain plastic packaging, so I would recommend storing the plugs elsewhere once you’ve opened the package.

Design and Material

Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Plugs

The plugs in the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 butt plug set are constructed from a firm silicone. The firmness of the silicone ensures that these plugs are easy to insert.

I purchased the set in black, but it is also available in pink and in a translucent color with rainbow specks throughout.

Measurements

Measurements matter a lot to me when I am shopping for butt plugs, so I include them in depth here for those who also care.

The small plug is 3” long, with a diameter of 0.75” (girth of 2.75”), and neck girth of 1.25”. The medium plug is 5” long, with a diameter of 1” (girth of 3.25”), and neck girth of 1.4”. The large plug is 5” long, with a diameter of 1.25” (girth of 4”) and neck girth of 1.7”. The neck-to-bulb ratio of these plugs means that the neck is comfortable and easy to wear for an extended period of time.

The length of the base and half of the base (that can make vaginal penetration uncomfortable, if applicable to you) for each plug can matter. The small plug has a base length of 2.2” and the flexible end is ~0.75” long. The medium plug has a base length of 2.5” and the flexible end is ~1” long. The large plug has a base length of 3” and the flexible end is ~1.2” long.

Butt Plug Base

The base of the plugs is longer than average, but not very wide, which may be more comfortable for some.

The length of the base may also occlude the vagina, which means that these are not necessarily ideal for use during vaginal intercourse. This is a common problem with T-bar base plugs, though I found it was less of a problem with the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit bases.

Personally, the smallest plug was perfectly fine to be used during vaginal sex, but the length of the base of the other two plugs can pose challenges – depending on your anatomy.

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs have a flexible base, and this has its pros and cons. The flexibility means that the base can mold to your body. On the other hand, it is slightly harder to remove than a plug that has a firmer base. On Reddit, I have seen several beginners worry about the plug being swallowed inside – while this is unlikely due to the difference in width between the base and the bulb, it could be something to take into consideration.

Comfort

The necks of the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs are excellent – they are relatively thin, which allows them to be worn more comfortably for an extended period of time.

Personally, I did not like the thin flexible base. The thin base pressed into my butt cheeks, which was less comfortable than the average (wider, more substantial) base. This probably depends on your butt, however!

Ease of Cleaning

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs are easy to clean with soap and water, and they can safely be boiled to sanitize them. There are no hidden nooks or crannies, no imperfections, and no obvious seams to clean.

Does the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Butt Plug Set Work As It Claims?

Doc Johnson describes the plugs as follows:

“Measuring at 3, 4, and 5 inches, this set is perfectly shaped and sized to help backdoor beginners gently expand the boundaries of their anal experience. The classic tapered tip of Mood Naughty slides right in, and the firm yet flexible material and curved rocker base make these plugs comfortable and safe for extended wear. “

The measurements provided by Doc Johnson are correct. The shape is a classic and ideal shape for a butt plug, and the small diameters are perfect for beginners to anal play. I agree with Doc Johnson’s claims – these plugs live up to the manufacturer’s claims.

Should You Buy This?

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty set is one of the best butt plug sets around. The spacing between each plug is appropriate, with spacing of 0.25” between each plug. This alone puts it above most anal training/butt plug sets.

The value is excellent. I purchased the set from SheVibe for $24.99. In comparison, a single large Mood Naughty butt plug normally costs $21.99 at SheVibe ($24.99 MSRP). in addition, the price of $24.99 is on the low end of most anal trainer and butt plug sets.

I definitely recommend the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty set if you are a beginner. Due to the widths of the plugs – ranging in width from 0.75” – 1.25” – these are excellent plugs if you don’t have previous experience with anal plugs. The flip side of that is that if you are a little experienced, I might recommend another set like the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit.

If you are inexperienced and are merely concerned with how small the large plugs are, there is an additional Mood Naughty plug available in Extra Large (1.5” in width).

If you are concerned about the base of the plugs, check out the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit – I also highly recommend it (and prefer it slightly).

If you are looking for prostate stimulation, and not really sure that you want an entire set of plugs, the Mood Naughty 2 plugs are designed to provide prostate stimulation.

If you are looking for a softer/squishier plug, I would recommend Oxballs Ergo in XS.
