Sqaure Peg Peg Away Putty

The Square Peg Peg Away Putty’s Putty (left) and Activator (right)

Vendor: Mr S (USA) & Regulation (EU)

What is Peg Away Putty for?

There are many great ass toy manufacturers out there who produce an incredible number of different toys for every kind of ass, kink and fantasy. Yet each ass is different, each bottom’s “itch” is placed somewhere else. For this kind of situation, Square Peg introduced their Peg Away Putty. As the name says, it is a putty you can mold to alter the shape of your silicone (and ONLY silicone, best platinum silicone!) toys to fit your needs best. You can also create entire toys from scratch, starting from sounds over what Square Peg calls “bands” which you can put on your wrist for fisting or your toys to add texture up to entire plugs and dildos though this will be a pricy endeavor.

Detail of the Putty and Activator

What do you get?

Each set consists of two containers: One with an opaque white activator for curing the silicone and one with the colored putty. This putty comes in all typical Square Peg colors and firmnesses: The iconic bronze and graphite in supersoft, in firm the classic black but also in white, blue red, yellow, green, pink, brown, purple, orange and grey. The entire container does not need to be used at once. Just take as much putty and activator as you need and close the container afterwards. You also get a manual which explains how to use the putty correctly (and which I have misplaced).

How do you use it?

Before you start actually using it on toys, I recommend playing with the putty without the activator to get a feeling for the material, how it behaves, how you could shape it and how to mold it on the toy. Without the activator it won’t cure so you can play around with it, try a different shape and start over again.

The Square Peg Pegger Extractor with More Putty Sever Ridges

When you have gathered enough experience, realized your idea in vitro without the activator and got a feeling how much putty you need for your project, the toy, surface and hands need to be prepared. All surfaces coming in contact with the putty must be grease and dirt free. So I recommend washing everything with a degreasing dish soap. When you are from the USA I recommend the simple Dawn Ultra (NOT the ones with lotion or special smell or else), in Germany I use either Pril or Fit. The putty should best be used with well cleaned bare hands, because gloves can be covered in stuff which can hinder the curing process. Also, the putty comes off the hands so easily, you do not need gloves. If you have very sensitive hands, Square Pegs offers special glove which are made to work with the putty.

To ensure a proper curing and bonding, you have to use equal parts of putty and activator. This means you will need half the putty amount from your in vitro tests. Now knead both elements on a smooth surface like a glass cutting borad until you get a homogenous mixture. And then the shaping starts. Like good pizza dough, the mixture is very elastic and tends to return to its original shape. So it needs a bit of beating and stretching until it maintains the desired shape. Wrapping it around plastic tubes helps with that. Once the final shape is reached, either gently yet firmly attach the putty to the existing toy or add texture. Now the toy needs to rest for at least three hours for the curing and bonding to take place – I recommend letting it sit over night – and then your new toy is ready to go.

Peg Away Putty Used to make the  Pegger Extractor’s Rim more Blunt

So much for the technical part. But how does it feel to work with it? To be honest, I am not the most handy person and I was afraid to use the Peg Away Putty. But the playing around with the putty helped a lot and showed me how easy it is. When altering a toy, I recommend taking it easy and not add too much material. Especially when it comes to adding texture to a toy, even little and subtle additions can have a big affect on how the toy feels; adding a bit of girth with a steep slope can turn an easy fucker into a hard struggle.

The Peg Away Putty comes in different package sizes from 1 oz to 4 oz with the price ranging from $14.95 to $44.94. Just take a look at the range at Mr S and Regulation which set fits your project best.

Vendor: Mr S Leather (USA) & Regulation (UK)

Construction

The Mega Milk’it borrows its basic shape from the popular Egg plug with it smooth, oval body, a smaller neck and a stretched base to fit comfortably between the ass cheeks. Though both sides of the body are very different: One side has a small bulge above before the taper towards the base, very similar to the Acorn. The other side has been “cut off” and replaced with ridges around the rim and two thicker, thus sturdier ones sticking out of the hollow carved into the body. The base on the side of the ridge is flat, on the side of the ridges it is curved upward like on the Egg plug.

The Square Peg Mega Milk’it

The overall height of the plug is 150mm of which the body takes up 110mm. The body is 64mm wide and measuring the ridges on the rim 54mm deep. Because the ridges fold easily and the body has relatively little mass due to the deep hollow it folds easily, making it easy to insert despite the texture. The upward pointing tip raises 40mm above the base.

The Ridges inside the Hollow on one side of the Body

Like all Square Peg toys the Mega Milk’it is made out of platinum silicone which makes the toy body safe, hypo allergenic and easy to clean. Though you should not use it with silicone lube because the silicone oil in it will damage the toy.

Playing with the Mega Milk’it

As written already, the Mega Milk’it is quite easy to insert. I recommend using lots of lube, maybe even injecting some lube into the ass because this is not a toy for long-term wearing but for moving inside the hole targeting the prostate. Alternatively – for extra effect – hold the head of a massager against the base. The soft material will transmit the vibration onto the prostate and sphincter making it buzz and the bottom squirm and scream.

Detail of the Bulge on one side of the Body

Both sides have very different effects which greatly depend on the bottom’s anatomy. The bulge is meant for moving the toy in and out, massaging the prostate in a smooth, flowing way. Some testees – like me – would have wished for a little bit more prominent bulge but this can easily be fixed using Square Peg’s Peg Away Putty. The ridges both work when fucking with the toy but also for twisting inside the hole and are a little bit better for vibrations because through the smaller contact area they are felt more intense. In order to fully enjoy the ridges, the ass has to be fairly relaxed; otherwise the just fold creating a still textured surface instead of sticking out ridges. When using this side of the toy, the base’s tip also massages the prostate on the perineum. BUT: The side only worked for about 60% of my testee panel.  To explain why, let’s dive a bit into anatomy: A healthy prostate is an about walnut sized organ sitting just behind the sphincter and above the perineum. Depending on the individual anatomy, it can be half a walnut bulging the rectum’s mucosa or just be a little, almost unnoticeable rising. If the latter is the case, the ridges inside the hollow do not reach is, just the flappy ones around the rim can stimulate it, making it hard to target.

Detail of the Base

So despite this being a good and fun toy, I would not consider it a great toy. The hollow is too deep to make it enjoyable for everyone. The ridges are just a bit too flappy for an on point stimulation. Part of the criticism could be addressed with offering the toy also in Firm Black. With this added firmness and with just a little bit thicker (thus sturdier) and especially in the middle longer ridges, it could bring fun to every prostate.

Where to buy?

In the USA you can get the Mega Milk’it at Mr S for $69.95 and in the EU from Regulation for £69.99.

If the Mega Milk’it is too large for you or you do not like the textured side, Square Pegs offers a variety of other prostate massagers like the Charlie Horse Milk it which is basically a smaller size of the Mega Milk’it or the Kidney plug – in small Charlie Horse and large – which “just” massages your prostate with a bump but otherwise is smooth.

Vendor: Mr Hankey

Construction

The basis of all Mr Hankey toys is platinum silicone which refers to the catalyst to cure silicone. Unlike other metals used like tin which is often used for cheap silicone, platinum is hypoallergenic and doesn’t cause adverse effect inside the body. Other welcome effects of using a noble material like platinum is a high resistance towards acid and heat. This properties in combination of the silicone’s super-smooth surface makes these toys very easy to clean: Either put them in hot water with an acid cleaner or even auto-clave them. Being sanitized so easily, these toys are ideal when playing with multiple partners in a safe way because they can be quickly sterilized between scenes. As always with silicone toys, never use them with silicone lube because the silicone oils inside the lube can damage the toy.

The Mr Hankey Butt Bolt, Solatok & Prince Charming

There are two firmness degrees to choose from: Medium and 75% firm. As the name already states, the medium is not solid but has a considerable give yet makes the texture very noticeable. The 75% firm is soft and squishy which is a good texture for riding heavily textured toys hard without injury risk. You can order a custom firmness but the ones offered are actually ideal: Go any smoother, and the dildo could collapse, go harder an when playing roughly, there is a chance of hurting yourself.

Detail of the Vac-U-Lock Hole

The off-the-rack colors offered by Mr Hankey depend on the toy, but are rather dull and standard. I highly recommend investing the extra $29.95 for a custom color like I did on mine. For the Solatok I chose a dark blue highlights over a light blue base color, making it look a bit like Sam the Eagle. My Prince Charming is black base with green highlights giving it an alien, almost Zerg like appeal. Finally my Butt Bolt is a black and red marble, which cause some irritations with me: After an intense solo play scene, I cleaned my toys still being high on endorphins. When I washed the Butt Bolt I was briefly shocked if I severely injured my butt with all the dark blood covering the toy – until I realized it was just the toy’s color. All Mr Hankey dildos can be equipped with a Vac-U-Lock hole for $24.95 which makes sense for dildo-shaped anal toys, especially when you have a fuck machine.

The Prince Charming

All three toys have very distinct shapes and textures. The Butt Bolt’s body loosely resembles a cola can with a four-ridge thread around the body. The lower quarter of the body is smooth and tapers into a short neck which flows into a thick hexagonal base. Solatok has an equally dull tip with a noticeable “glans” rim which tapers into an only slightly thinner shaft. The front of the shaft is textured with four deep, scale-like ridges. The upper two thirds of the sides and back shaft is lightly textured by subtle vain-like ridges until it widens at the lower third to a thick knot.

The most extravagant toy of the three is without a doubt the Prince Charming. The basic shape of the tip is like a human’s glans but the surface is covered with small bumps and the glans rim with larger ones. Below the rim there is a significant drop in diameter. The shaft then widens again to about double the rim’s diameter. The shaft’s upper two thirds is textured with thick and deep humps and knots which are softened in the lower third by a cover.

The Butt Bolt

Playing with the Butt Bolt, Solatok & Prince Charming

All three toys even – even the small sizes – are not for the novice who can just barely take the minimum diameter of the glans rim. They are designed for well-stretched, loose sphincter which just needs a delightfully mean texture to tire out the hole at the end of a scene and scratch the unsoothable itch.

Each toy is interesting in its own way. The dull tip of the Butt Bolt makes it a challenge to insert. Once inside, the ridges of the threat massage/ scratch the delicate nerve endings inside the sphincter. My Butt Bolt is a LG/XL made out of 75% Firm silicone so the ridges easily flap but still a hard punch-fucking will make even experienced fistees squirm quickly. I cannot even imagine how a much meaner a firmer one will be. Since it is rather compact in size and the max-neck-diameter ratio is relatively high, the plug can stay inside the ass for extended periods of time, like a break inside the sling. For walking around, the base is too big and has too many edges. During this break, the sphincter will tighten again, making the pulling out even more agonizing.

The Solatok

The Solatok (ab)users “suffer” from the same challenge as the Butt Bolt: The dull tip. Once inside the ass, it is an interesting toy to play with. Since the upper part of the shaft is basically ¾ untextured and one quarter heavily textured, the sensation while riding or fucking Solatok can be precisely focused. For a more broader stimulation, twist the toy inside the sphincter and use the scales’ rim. Going a little bit deeper, Solatok’s massive knot will be a challenge for almost every anus. The knot increases in diameter quickly and steeply. While it tapers towards the base again, there is almost no space above the base, leaving little chance to relax when fucking with the dildo all the way.

The „Cover“ over Prince Charming’s Texture on the Lower Third of the Shaft

Finally, Prince Charming is almost two toys in one. First, there is the glans covered with bumps. While they make it hard to take and make an extraordinarily large amount of lube necessary, the glans with the big diameter drop below it is almost like a small, heavily textured toy. It is the ideal toy to tease inside the sphincter, especially when twisting it once inside. The shaft’s texture is a (w)hole different category. The wide, cone-shaped taper adds the quickly increasing diameter to the challenge of the heavily, knot-like humps and bumps. Again, either sliding over them or twisting the shaft inside the hole will give the heavies stimulation. But especially when attaching it to a fucking machine with the bottom bound so he cannot escape forward, is a unique, if not done with great care also dangerous struggling stretch sensation. Use with care!

Where to buy?

Mr Hankey sells their toys directly through their website. This is the best way to get them when you want to customize them even further. They also run promotions on a regular basis so check their page regular to snatch a bargain. Depending on the size and features, the Butt Bolt costs between $69.95 and $144.75, the Prince Charming $129.95 and $174.90 and finally the Solatok between $124.95 and $184.90. Custom colors costs $29.95, custom firmness $15.95.

Square Peg Ripple & Vortex Slink

Vendor: Mr S Leather (USA & Canada) & Regulation (EU)

Form: Dildo
Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: Graphite and Bronze

Storage: Store in a well-ventilated place not touching other toys to prevent damage.

About half a year ago I reviewed the two most popular depth toys from Square Peg: The Depth Probe and the “smooth” Slink. Since then I have gotten many reader questions about the Slink, especially the textured models which I will answer in this review.

The Square Peg Slink Smooth S, Vortex and Ripple M

I have also been getting questions about the Slink Spike and the Slink Stretch which exceeded my budget. If you want to fix that, feel free to get in touch 😉

Construction

Both Slinks have the same basic shape as the smooth one: At the bottom there is an oval, 20% larger than maximum stretch base which fits well between the ass cheeks. It can also be equipped with a suction cup, ideal for selfplay in the bathroom. On the base’s rim there is the toy’s name and size imprinted into. The base flows into a short tapered neck for long-term wearing or resting when getting fucked with the slink. The neck quickly extends to the maximum stretch which than tappers in very long cone to a pointy yet rounded tip.

Detail of the Slink’s Plug-style Neck

As the name already says, the Ripple’s body is covered with gentle, about 2mm deep grooves. The distance between the grooves starts out at about 20mm and gets smaller the closer they get to the tip. Around the Vortex’s body run four 6mm high ridges like on a wood drill.

The Vortex only comes in one size with an overall length of 500mm and a maximum stretch of 60mm which places it between the Medium and Medium/Large smooth Slink. The Ripple Slink comes in too standard Slink sizes medium (length 405mm and max. diameter 61mm) and large (length 533mm and max. diameter 69mm). Like all Slinks these two toys come in SuperSoft Bronze and Graphite. I have been asked numerous times why you can’t get it in Firm Black. Since the firmness and thus rigidness of a toy increases with the thickness, the bendiness the Slink needs to meander through the guts would be lost

Detail of the Vortex Helix-Style Ridge running around the Body

Playing with the Ripple & Vortex Slink

Since I already talked at length about the Slink as a depth toy, I want to focus on how the specific design features impact the play. First, the Ripple Slink. One of the “disadvantages” of the smooth Slink is, that it just smoothly flows inside the bowels. While this is good to train the butt, most of the feeling is lost. The Ripple fixes that because the grooves add a bit of friction. Not so much that it would be difficult to insert because they are not too deep and the edges are well rounded. But the sensitive nerve endings inside the guts and sphincter notice them. So it is a more “fun” sensation getting fucked with the Ripple compared to the smooth one. The grooves also divide the body a bit into sections which are points where it bends easier compared to the “solid” smooth body. This makes navigating inside twisted passages easier.

Detail of the Ripple’s Grooves

The Vortex also introduces a new sensation. When twisting the toy, the helix-like ridges create an intense sense of motion rarely felt on other anal toys. Especially deep inside the guts it is a weird, unusual though by for most of my testees not unpleasant sensation. While the Ripple’s bendiness is good for exploring willing guts, the Vortex is ideal for bowels which are a bit challenging. The ridges add sturdiness but if you hold it loosely, it will twist in the way of lowest resistance and find its way. The inner organs are a delicate body area so please always be cautious! A bit of force is ok with the Vortex, too much can cause serious injuries! Also, through the large surface area, the Vortex needs considerably more lube than the smooth or Ripple Slink!

Detail of the Slinks‘ Base with the Size and Product Name

While both toys are great to explore ones hole deeper, since they are too thin on the deeper end to prepare for real depth fisting. They are more toys to straighten the bowels out, accustomed them to the sensation of mechanical stimulation which ultimately makes relaxing easier during deep fisting. For stretch training the gateway to the guts, I recommend the Long Neck which I will be reviewing in a few weeks.

Where to buy?

When I am in the USA or Canada, I get my SquarePeg toys from Mr S. The Slink Ripple costs between $119.95 and $159.95 and the Vortex Slink $195.95. In Europe, Regulation has the widest selection and actually lowest price of SquarePeg toys. The Slink Ripple costs between £119.99 and £159.99 and the Slink Vortex £159.99. Regulation carries most toys only in SuperSoft Bronze. If you want them in a Graphite, add the Bronze to your cart and write in the checkout notes you want it in a different color. They then will order it for you which usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks.

Crackstuffers Rough Rider

Vendor: Mister B

Construction

The Crackstuffers Rough Rider is a typical shape dildo. It starts out with a nicely tapered tip which takes up about 20% of the total length.

The Crackstuffers Rough Rider

The shaft is textured with rings of six bumps; the number of bumps per ring goes down as the size decreases. Each bump is a half-dome measuring 20mm in diameter and 7mm height on the large model reviewed here. There are a total of 7 rings with each other ring is offset by 30° so entire sphincter is stimulated while riding it. An unwanted texture is the joint which runs around the entire toy which is typical for anal toys made out of vinyl.

The Rough Rider comes in three sizes.

Size Diameter Shaft Diameter

With Bumps

Length
S 3.2cm 4.8cm 25cm
M 5.5cm 6.3cm 26cm
L 7.2cm 8.6cm 28cm

Detail of the Bumps

Playing with it

From the name Rough Rider sounds vicious but it is actually a good toy for people to start out into the world of textured anal toys. The tapered tip allows the dildo to penetrate the sphincter easily before the bumps stimulate the sensitive sphincter. Since the toy is made out of vinyl which is soft, the bumps also give in. Compared to ridges or grooves bumps are the easiest to take texture, especially when they have such a gentle rising like the ones on the Rough Rider.  The sensation’s intensity can be controlled via the speed and force the dildo gets thrust into the hole. So the Rough Rider also offers some challenge for the anally experienced.  Despite the tip’s being optimized for easy entry, the hole should be pre-stretched to the diameter including the bumps to avoid injuries when fucking harder.

Detail of the Tapered Tip

While the play with the Rough Rider is great, the handling is difficult. Especially with the small and somewhat the medium size, the length to diameter ration is too far off to allow the dildo to stand up on its own which makes it hard to ride. A  suction cup or even a wider base would have been nice, especially since the small version in a length realm where the entire toy could be swallowed whole. The lack of a base is also problematic when topping with the toy. With the perfectly circular shaft and except the bumps no texture, it is actually hard to hold on to the toy with lubey hands. Again, a base would have been nice. There is a Truncheon version of the Rough Rider, which adds a grip and a crossguard-style stop at the end of the insertable part. But it features fewer bumps which are all in line so there stimulation is less intense.

Fetish Pads

The Fetish Pad in the Natural Habitit: Protecting Delicate Hardwood Floor during Messy Play

Vendor: The Kinksters

Construction

These pads are a kinky version of the medical products used for people with incontinence or to cover the changing tables of babies. The bottom is made out of water-proof foil and covered by a gauze-like material which covers – in this case two layers of – absorbing cellulose. The Fetish Pads also follows this product category’s standard sizing. The entire pad measures 59x86cm of which the absorbing padding measures 53.5×75.5cm. They are sold in cases of 15.

What distinguishes this product from the medical ones is the one hand color: The medical ones come in blue and green, sometimes even in white. But the Fetish Pad is made in the kink scene’s favorite color black. Because the gauze is only semiopaque, the absorbing surface has a cloudy charcoal color.

Left: Bottom’s Water-proof Foil
Right: Absorbing Padding

Playing with the Fetish Pads

There are countless forms of play in which the Fetish Pads can be used. The most obvious are piss play, either the “traditional” one or pup play in terms of house training. To create a larger area for piss or gunge play I recommend to overlap several pads and tape the gaps from both sides. They are also useful for fisting. Place them under the bottom’s directly ass or the sling to absorb lube or piss after bladder stimulation. I usually travel with pads when playing in hotels because unlike a play sheet they do not take away much space and I can simply throw away after the scene. For this purpose, the Fetish Pads are clearly superior to their medical counter parts which are usually stiffer. The Fetish Pads are soft and easily curve around the body so there are no gaps where liquids could escape. Furthermore the pads can take quite a bit of beating without tearing so the liquids are even well contained when an active bottom is placed on them.

Detail of the Interior of the Absoring Padding

But what disappointed me a bit was their absorption capacity. To test the pads, I evenly poured a liter of water over them. While the cellulose quickly absorbed the water where it hit, the pad struggled to absorb the full amount of liquid. A liter might sound excessive but keep in mind that is poured it evenly over the entire absorbing surface, something which is far from a real-life situation. So for example during fisting if a bottom getting fisted pisses himself or lots of lube flows out of his ass, the area of the liquid hitting the pad will be very small. Since a person lying on them creates a depression, the unabsorbed liquid will linger there, making it uncomfortable over time. So for heavy fetish play, I would have liked there to be four or even six cellulose layers for more capacity.

And finally, there is the price: At £1.73 per pad, they are rather pricy for a “use and throw away without worrying too much”-item. So in the end it all comes down to how important the color coordination with the gear and the playroom is for a kinkster in need of absorbing pads.

McHurt Rubber Paddles

Vendor: McHurt

The McHurt Plain Rubber Paddle and Rubber Paddle with Holes

I sometimes get messages from rubber fetishist who are looking for impact implements made out of their favorite material. I already reviewed the rubber implements sold by Mr S and the vicious Ballistic Metal Viper but I guess you can never have enough spanking toys.

Construction

Today I will be reviewing to paddles: A plain oval one and a rectangular one with holes in the impact section. Both paddles are made out of industrial rubber which is different from the latex used for fetish play because aging protectors and antioxidants are added in the manufacturing process. Because of this you do not apply talc powder or silicone oil when storing the paddles or have to worry too much when they come in contact with oil or fat (though you should also not test their resistance too much). Of course rubber still is a hard to treat and delicate material. So the paddles do not look as refined and spotless as leather or wood paddles. But they have been executed perfectly. All the sharp edges from the water saw have been broken and deburred to prevent unintended cuts. The grip on both paddles are two thick pieces of screwed through the body with two sturdy bolts. So much for the similarities.

Detail of the Plain Paddle’s Rough Side

The plain paddle has an overall length of 30cm, half of it for the grip. The oval shaped impact section is 15cm long and measures 8cm at the widest spot. The body is made out of 6mm thick rubber which as a smooth and a rougher surface which comes from the manufacturing process. The rubber is just thin enough to still be floppy.

The other paddle is equally long and has the same grip length. The impact section is also 8cm wide but rectangular. Three rows with two holes each have been drilled into the surface to allow air to travel through them. The body is made out of two 6mm thick rubber pieces glues together on the rough side so you have a smooth surface on both sides. To strengthen the tie, seam runs around the paddle.

Playing with the Paddles

Detail of the Stichting

Through their unique construction, they produce unexpected sensations for rubber impact implements. First, let’s look at the plain paddle.

Usually, you could not make a long-lasting paddle out of 6mm thick rubber because it would break too easily. McHurt fixed that through the reinforced grip. The grip also focuses the kinetic energy purely on the impact section. Because of that the paddle can be used for light tapping and actually also warm-up. Increasing the power quickly transforms the tapping sensation into pure sting. The sting is a bit dulled when using the rough surface but it also adds an abrasive sensation. Especially when spanking powerful the plain paddle colors quickly. Sadly through the thick grip, the paddle is a bit unbalanced towards the grip.

The paddle with holes is a completely different matter. Through the weight, stiffness and denseness of the double layered rubber it is a thuddy bruiser. So it should only be used on well-padded body areas to prevent unintended injuries. The paddle does not really color that much but when it does, it leaves bruises. Due to the holes there is no air cushion softening the impact. So it is not for the faint of heart. To be honest, compared to other rubber paddles it takes quite some power to make the sub scream with this paddle. But luckily the paddle is well balanced so the wrist does not tire out easily.

Detail of the Grip’s Bolts

Rubber is a good material for sever spankings because is the sub starts to bleed or the impact pushes out tissue water, rubber can easily be sanitized. Simply wash the paddle with warm water and dish soap and spray with sanitizer after is tried.

How to get the Paddles

Even though McHurt has an online store, they do not sell everything on there – which sadly also applies for these paddles. Also, they are not located in the kinky part of town but in an inconspicuous corner store close to Tempelhof. So if you are interested in them, either drop them an e-mail or take the time to visit their store. They carry a lot of spanking toys you do not see everywhere so the trip is worth the way!

Conclusion: Uniquely designed rubber paddles with a wide range of sensations
Pro Cons Where to get Price

ElectraStim AXIS Unboxing

While the snow is falling heavily outside the window, it is a good time to get ToyTorture.com out of its hibernation. I decided to start with an heavily requested piece: The unboxing of the ElectraStim’s new leading power box AXIS. If you are interested in how the box performs in play, read my impression of the beta test unit here. The guys from ElectraStim informed me that they are currently fine-tuning the first update which will incorporate some input I gave them over my time with the beta unite. Once it is released, I will write an update article how the box improved. But now, in medias res of the unboxing…What sets AXIS apart from all other power boxes is the exterior packing. While a sleeve around the carrying case has been the industry standard (except for the unmarked corrugated fiberboard boxes ErosTek ships their power boxes in…) for years, ElectraStim decided to go with a full cardboard box with a glossy full color print. Since the full potential of AXIS does not really jump out, having more space for texts and pictures is a good thing. Though as a marketing professional, I would have wished for two or three enticing pictures on the back instead of just a dry yet information dense text.Opening up the outer packaging reveals a nice surprise: Instead of going for the already mentioned “industry standard” hard plastic case they went for a soft shell nylon zipper case. I like this innovation because I can store a little bit “crushable” case better in my play luggage than stiff one. Also, it protects the unit inside better.Inside, the layout is very traditional: The bottom half is filled with foam which features a cut-out for the power box itself and a larger one for accessories and cables. Inside the lid is a zipper closed mesh pocket for smaller accessories.What is noticeable compared to other power boxes is the lack of a battery. This is because AXIS has a build-in one which can be charged using a standard micro-USB cable. Through this design decision, the power box itself measured only 112x70x23mm and weighs just 116g play-ready.How much punch is packed in a really small sizes becomes apparent when placing AXIS amongst its “relatives”: It is only slightly larger and heavier than the Flick Duo which also features a build-in battery and considerably smaller and handier than the equally powerful but less feature-heavy and 9V battery-powered SensaVox.AIXS comes with a nifty belt clips which is a nifty accessory when playing with the movement sensor or accelerometer.Since AXIS is a dual-channel power box, it comes with two 120cm long 2mm socket-to-2mm pin leads. When ElectraStim contacted me, asking me if I would be interested in beta-testing something new and exciting I got my hopes up that they would take the big leap and change their lead system to the “industry standard” 3.5mm jack-to-4mm banana plug but I guess once you design your entire electrode ecosystem around a standard you cannot change it anymore so I will continue to carry adapters around with me.Like almost every power box, you get a set of pad electrodes which is a nice to have for play right out of the box.Since AXIS has quite sophisticated audio processing, the unit comes with a 100cm high quality line-in-cable which features gold-plated 3.5mm jacks for perfect transmission.I have to be honest, I am a bit amused when I found a 55cm long micro USB cable inside the box. Yes, it is essential for charging the power box (But where is the USB charger?) and for updating it, but I can hardly imagine a household without a single micro-USB cable. Maybe a pure Apple fanboy household.Speaking of updates, the small metal pin is needed to press the hardware button to initiate the update process when AXIS is connected to the computer.And speaking of the computer: You need a computer to read the full manual. Inside the case is just a little quick-start guide in English, French, German, Dutch and Spanish and the little flyer about how to get the extended 3-year warranty.

AXIS

Vendor: ElectraStim

The ElectraStim AXIS

For over 5 years, I have been doing reviews of e-stim power boxes and electrodes on this website. Through the annual E-Stim Specials and e-stim being one of my favorite things as a bottom, I have earned a bit of a reputation of being an e-stim expert. So naturally I was thrilled when ElectraStim approached me in late 2018, asking me if I would be interested in beta-testing a top secret project: Their new state of the art power box AXIS. They sent me a beta version I have played around for a couple of weeks now.

My review sample being a beta version makes this review a bit special. Due to the NDA I signed, this review is purely based in my own experience. No testee panel members were involved. Also ElectraStim told me that the software was not 100% final so there might be minor changes or little glitches in the user interface for example. I did not encounter these glitches. However, I will update this review along the lines of the production unit’s “proper” testing. Finally, the packaging and what comes with the box was also not a 100% final. As soon as I receive the real deal, I will do an unboxing [Update Feb 3rd 2019: The unboxing of the production unit has been published].

With that in mind, let’s cut to the chase…

Construction & Operating AXIS

The design of the AXIS follows the one of the other ElectraStim power boxes: The case itself is a made out of a sturdy black polymer with a soft-touch surface. The control panel on the top is framed by a silver bezel while the panel itself has a silver-sparkling charcoal color. On top of the control panel there is a 35x20mm turquoise light LED matrix display. In the top left and top right corner a little number indicates the current power level of the left and right channel. Between them there is the current program set written and the battery level indicator. The lower 4/5th of the screen is divided by a dotter line which separates an area for each channel to visualize the stimulation and/ or output level of the currently selected program either through blinking or diameter-changing circles (wave and pulse set) or a bars (flick, tilt, proximity, microphone and line-in set). Below the display is the photocell which can detect proximity as well as movement direction up to 10cm distance.

The Control Panel of AXIS

The lower half of the panel is covered by the control buttons. On the left and on the right are the power up/ power down buttons for the two channels. When keeping the “Up” bottons pressed, there is a  1 1/2 second lag before the intensity goes up quickly which is a useful safety feature against operation errors. On the way down, the lag is considerably shorter with half a second. Though if something goes wrong, never turn the box down. Just pull the lead out of the socket. A weird quirk of AXIS is that the maximum intensity is set at level 50 instead of 99 or 100. This is not only counter-intuitive, but makes the communication when maxing the unit a bit awkward. “I took you all the way to 50.” does not really inspire. I already communicated this impression to ElectraStim and I hope they fix it in an update.

Detail of the 2mm Lead Sockets of AXIS

In the middle of the upper row is a button labeled “M” for going through the seven program sets (wave, pluse, flick, tilt, proximity, microphone and line-in) and finally the configuration menu. To choose a stimulation pattern inside a set, press the button with the two arrows forming a circle located just below the “M” button. In order to select it, leave the cursor on the setting for 3 seconds and it will be selected. When pressing the double arrow button while stimulation firing, it will take you to the selection menu of the current set. Every time a new stimulation pattern is selected, the output level is set to zero on both channels.  The lowest button is the power button which turns the unit on and off.

The rest of the box is fairly standard stuff: On top of the case there are two 2mm sockets for the leads, at the bottom there is a 3.5mm line-in, a micro-USB port for charging and the microphone.

Measuring just 112x70x23mm and weighing just 116g, the AXIS is the lightest and smallest of the high-end power boxes. This attribute is bought by the fact that instead of using 9V block batteries, the AXIS has built-in lithium-ion battery. Depending on the stimulation intensity, it will last for about 6 hours. However, if you run out of battery life mid scene, you are screwed. Not only do you have to have a power bank or a USB power supply and a micro-USB cable at hand but the unit can’t be used while charging! To get from zero to 80% takes about an hour, the last 20% will take an additional three.

Playing with AXIS

Little preview: The AXIS is currently the most versatile power box on the market. But this comes with a price: The Arduino inside the box takes 11 seconds to boot. What is extra irritating are the first 3.5 seconds until the display is initiated. During this time I often wondered if the box actually started or not.

The sophisticated hardware allows for some nice features. In the settings menu, there is a “Run Time” info which tells you how often you have powered up AXIS, how long you have used it in total and how long is has been since the box has been powered up this time. Especially for extreme e-stim aficionados is the “Nerd Mode”. It turn additional information of the current running programs of Wave, Pulse and Tilt on, like the frequency at the bottom of the screen, below the program visualization. In all modes there is a little thick bar at the bottom of the separation line in the middle of the screen. The higher the bar, the more energy is consumed.

Detail of the Display Reading of a Pulse Program in Nerd Mode

Usually in this part of an e-stim power box review comes the description of the programs. But AXIS has a whopping 47 (!) build in. So for the sake of reading flow, I put the large table below my conclusion box at the end of the article. What I found a bit disappointing was the fact that I could not modify any of the programs. I received the AIXS beta pack without a manual, so I had to discover the box and features on my own. When I turned on Nerd Mode with the details of the program displayed on the screen, I intuitively expected to be able to modify them. But no key combo worked. So I got in touch with ElectraStim and they confirmed that indeed the programs cannot be altered – yet. It is the beauty of the Arduino inside that it is such a powerful SoC which leaves space for development. The company said that the master mind behind AXIS’ development will look into adding the manipulation feature to the programs if possible.

My Run Time Statistic at the End of my Testing Period with the Beta Unit

In other e-stim power box reviews I already talked about in length what evil things can be done using a microphone (for example a self-enforcing circle of pain once the sub starts screaming), the line-in (like using a synthesizer to “play” your own programs) or the movement sensor. The newest sensor is the proximity sensor which yields hours of devious fun. Just to give you some ideas: Hold it in front of a pendulum, use your sub as a screaming “light barrier” at a passage or let him participate on another sub getting spanked or fucked by a fuck machine. Placing the motion sensor is a bit tricky and takes some time to figure out, but once figured out, it is a devilish tool.

Just like its (grand)father the SensaVox, AXIS s a very powerful unit! Using the ElectraStim Prestige ElectraLoops with a wave program, I started to notice the sensation with AXIS at 10% of the maximum intensity, while I had to take the E-Stim Systems 2b and the ErosTek ET312b up to 18% of the maximum intensity.

Speaking of comparing it to the main competitors: What I personally did not miss but probably many will, is a remote control feature. With E-Stim Systems’ Connect service for the 2b, they set the bar for easy to use and powerful remote e-stim scenes. Maybe it will be one of the features added later in an update but. But if you are looking for a box for web cam scenes, look elsewhere. If you are looking for the most versatile, scene layout creativity inspiring and deviant e-stim power box out there, get AXIS!

ElectraStim will be accepting pre-orders starting Jan 7th 2019 and according to my latest information, they will start shipping on Jan 15th 2019. Furthermore, I have not yet been told the price. As soon as I get new pieces of information, I will publish them here and on Twitter.
