Archer is a soft packer, meant to mimic the look and feel of a flaccid penis. It is NOT designed for penetration.
Soft Packers are designed to look and feel like a flaccid penis and testicles. They are often worn as prosthetics by trans and gender non-binary people, and they are sometimes used gender play or gender exploration.
Which Soft Packer is Right for Me? When searching for the right soft packer, there are a lot of variables to consider. What size should I get? Do I want to find one to match my skin tone? How much money do I want to spend? Can I pack it comfortably? How realistic does it look/feel?
Inexpensive packers are often made out very soft, porous materials like elastomers, TPR, or polymer/oil blends. These materials will often have trade names like "soft skin," "cyberskin," "sil-a-gel," etc. Because they are so soft, they can feel quite realistic as a flaccid penis. They will tend to show wear, dirt, and even slight shrinkage over months of use, and they can never be completely sanitized. Porous packers usually have to be replaced periodically. But, they tend to be cheaper than silicone packers and are very squishy in feel.
Packers made from 100% silicone tend to be a bit denser and heavier than porous-material packers, but they can still be pretty soft. In general, the softer the silicone, the more it is prone to wear and tear, so most manufacturers try to strike a balance between softness and longevity. Silicone is a relatively non-porous material, and as such it can be sanitized and it doesn't get as dirty as porous-material packers. Silicone resists shrinking and fading, and in general will last a very long time (if you don't accidentally tear it). For people with sensitive skin, silicone can be a good choice as it is hypoallergenic.
When considering size, remember that flaccid penises tend to be much smaller than erect penises! The average flaccid length of a penis is between 3 to 4 inches long. Bigger doesn't mean better.
How to Care for Your Soft Packer Wash your soft packer with warm water and a gentle soap. Rinse and pat dry with a lint-free cloth.
The surface of your soft packer may feel sticky due to the nature of the material. Unless the manufacturer specifically recommends against it, lightly dusting the packer’s entire surface with corn starch (available in the grocery store baking aisle) will keep the packer from sticking to your skin and hair, and will help it stay cleaner. The easiest way to apply corn starch is with a soft-bristle paintbrush or make-up brush. Do not use powders containing talc, or other body powders that may contain fragrance or other potential irritants to your genital area!
Soft packers are typically not designed for sexual penetration, unless they are a special "pack and play" type of packer.
Minimize wear & tear by wearing packer in a pocket-style harness or pocket-style packing underwear/jock. Many people sew simple pockets into their underwear as a cost-effective way to safely and securely pack.
