Vyper XL

The E-Stim Systems Vyper XL

Vendor: E-Stim System

Construction

The basis of the Vyper is a rectangular piece of 8mm thick, black, polished plastic which measures 220x145mm. On top of this base plate two pairs of golden sheet electrodes are mounted, each sheet measuring 80x28mm. Using four 55mm long M6 screws a clear 110x110mm and 5mm thick plastic plate can be fixed on top of the base plate and tightened using butterfly nuts. There are two of these plates so the entire base plate can be covered. Depending on the bottom’s dick size, one or two places can be used to torment his dick. At the bottom of the clear plates, the same electrode layout as on the base plate can be found.

There are four terminal pairs on the top and two pairs on the bottom below the upper pair of a compression plate. There is a connection between the upper and lower terminals so even if you don’t attach leads to the lower ones, stimulation will come from the lower electrodes.

On top of the board there is a little eyelet through which either rope can be threaded or a carbineer attached. Since the total weight of the toy is 650g, it is a good idea to have something which keeps the Vyper from moving around and thus putting the dick in an unwanted location.

For more compact play luggage E-Stim Systems also offers a short version called “Vyper 2” which is half the size of the Vyper XL reviewed here.

Playing with the Vyper XL

There are two ways of wiring the Vyper: The quick and easy and the more elaborate way. The quick and easy way is always connecting a yellow and a black terminal to one channel of your electro powerbox. This way the simulation direction is left and right and you rule out any chance of short-circuiting your power box. For the more elaborate way, you connect the two alike-colored terminals above each other for a top-bottom-stimulation. In this case you need to place small rubber patches where the top terminals connect to the lower electrodes. Otherwise you will short-circuit your power box! While most premium e-stim boxes can withstand this stress, it is not good for the hardware. Also, you won’t feel almost any stimulation regardless of the power level. Furthermore, make sure that the dick touches the panel you connect the box to. This is especially important with less well-endowed subs.

Detail of how the Upper Terminal connect to the Lower Sheet Electrodes

After the technicalities have been taken care of, now on to the fun stuff. The sensation produced by the Vyper actually depends on the dick size. Since the electrodes have very small mass, the more of the dick covers them, the smoother is the sensation. This leads to interesting mind games: Either endure the dick being pressed more severly for a smother sensation or take less pressure but more stingy e-stim. When compressing the dick, taking it slow and not to extremes is wise. Ironically the cavernous bodies are more sensitive to compression than the balls so do not tighten the top plates to the max. It is actually useful to add a nut or two as a safety barrier. The sensation can be made a bit smoother using conductive lube.

Through the Vyper’s unique layout, it takes a bit of time and experimenting which programs wired which way works best for your sub. For me, programs I never found enjoyable suddenly made sense using the Vyper XL. Playing a little bit with pressure during play – like tightening the lower or loosening the upper plate to “squeeze” an orgasm out of the sub – is also a lot of fun. One sub even managed to cum inside the Vyper just from e-stim.  If you have a “larger” sub, taking single plates off opens a hole new range of play possibilities. Either just fry the glans or polish and sound it while the shaft gets all the stimulation.

Details of a Sheet Electrode Pair

For even more varied CBT scenes, the Vyper can be used without the top plates. Simply use rope or elastic bands to keep the dick pressured against the base plate’s poles while you torment the shaft and glans with (e-stim) pinwheels, pegs, a violet wand or impact play. You can even use wax though it is a pain in the ass to clean off!

Speaking of cleaning, after play spray the exposed areas with a sanitizer and wipe it off afterwards. If you used large amounts of lube, your sub came all over the place or through other means it has gotten completely messy/ dirty, soak it in warm water with dish soap and use a soft sponge. However, take extra care when trying. With so many little gaps and holes, water can linger and cause corrosion!

Conclusion: Unique, little bit bulky design for interesting new, rather stingy e-stim sensations.

E-Stim Systems Black Collection

The E-Stim System Black Collection Bi-Polar Butt Plugs

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

2 ½ years ago E-Stim System introduced their Red Collection, a more “sculptural” approach to their popular (and by me highly praised) bi-polar electrodes. While I liked the shape of the electrodes, the design with red velvet colored isolators and mirror-shine finished poles did not really appeal to the “rough” look I like in my toys and playroom. Also, the sizes were quite “Lady-like”. Naturally I was excited when they turned their Bobble into the Black Collection.

Construction

The basic design are two beads stuck onto each other. They are separated by a black plastic neck which serves as an isolator between the two poles. At the bottom the lower bead tapers into a base which has the same diameter as the beads. Around the base run three (resp. four on the XL) groves for better grip even with lubey fingers. Into the base’s bottom a 4mm hole to plug in 4mm banana plugs is drilled. The plugs are available in four sizes.

S M L XL
Diameter 42mm 50mm 54mm 60mm
Height 113mm 131mm 146mm 160mm
Diameter 1st Neck 26mm 30.5mm 34mm 37.5mm

Diameter 2nd Neck 26mm 30.5mm 36.5mm 39mm
Distance to 2nd Neck 83mm 96mm 103mm 113mm
Weight 330g 520g 720g 970g

Detail of the Satin Finish

The upper bead is connected the lower part by a stainless steel screw. At its bottom there is a 4mm hole to connect the upper pole to the power box using 4mm banana plugs. To not short-circuit the e-stim box, the screw-head is isolated with a white plastic separator from the base. Around the banana plug socket these is a little hexagonal socket for easier disassembly when cleaning. This socket is highly useful because the screw is harder than the aluminum the electrode is made out off so it will dig into the material. I have older electrodes which do not have this socket and which have become almost un-screwable.

Like all premium bi-polar electrodes the Black Collection is made out of aircraft grade aluminum which is perfectly finished in E-Stim System’s satin matt finish. Since I have already gotten some reader questions about this topic I want to stress that the toys are indeed silver colored and not like in the promotion pictures black.

Playing with the Black Collection

For basic information on how the bi-polar electrodes perform and how to choose the right size, please check out one the review of other models I have published some time ago. Here I want to talk about how the interesting design produces unique sensations.

The Bi-Polar Plug Disassembled for Cleaning

What sets the Black Collection apart from all other bi-polar anal electrodes I have seen so far is that the split between the two poles is at the top instead of the bottom. So when lying down you can choose either choose between pushing it in all the way to the second neck or let the sphincter wrap around the isolator on the first neck. In this position all stimulation is focused on the sphincter, just like with the Micro. But through the larger mass and surface area the sensation is smoother.  Since the mass center unlike the other electrodes is on the outside the sensation feels… in lack of better words inverted. This is especially interesting when a wave program is used for a fucking sensation. It is still a fucking but with a new, different twist.

When sitting, standing or walking the electrode should be pushed in all the way. Especially when not sitting, the mass center outside the body will make it very likely that the electrode will fall out of the ass otherwise. Pushed in all the way, the sensation moves from the sphincter inside the body. This is a weird feeling, because the stimulation feels like a big, massive surface electrode but isn’t experienced on the skin. Again, it is hard to describe, but it adds a new sensation to the e-stim repertoire.

Detail of the 4mm Socket for the Banana Plug and the Hex Key

Especially the two largest electrodes have enough weight to develop an own movement momentum when the sub’s body moves, for example through walking or making him jump from the stimulation inside him. Depending on the rectum’s physiology the electrode will start to tumble, adding a physical sensation to the fact that electro stimulation flashes up on different areas on the bowel mucosa. Depending on the sub’s anatomy, the upper bead can lay on top of the prostate. So just like when a Classic hits the prostate, only using the upper pole in combination with a pad electrode attached to the perineum above the prostate is an interesting way of tormenting this sensible body part. Some subs can even be trained to get milked that way.

Finally, let’s take a look o how the Black Collection’s plugs perform just as anal toys without added e-stim. While they are fun to ride for more experienced anal players, they are good for training new fistees. Slowly fucking the hole with the two beads will teach the hole to open up and close again, even when the entering object is relatively dull. The beads are also perfectly designed to stimulate the prostate; one testee even developed a technique to how to thrust and twist the plugs just right to prostate-milk his chastity sub.

Conclusion: Uniquely designed high quality bi-polar anal electrode.

Twisted Monk Conductive Bamboo Rope

Twisted Monk Conductive Bamboo Rope

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

A few months ago I talked about Twisted Monk Hemp rope which comes in a number of different thicknesses for different kinds of play. Today’s review item is made out of bamboo fiber which stands out compared to other materials because it has anti-bacterial properties. While this provides some level of protection, if you want to be 100% sure, you have to wash your rope between scenes. Bamboo is softer than hemp, making it ideal for fragile areas like the fingers or the crotch area. Twisted Monk only makes Bamboo rope with 6mm thickness. It can be used for most forms of bondage but is not strong enough for suspension bondage. Like all Twisted Monk ropes the ends are whipped using strong yarn to keep the strands from unraveling. There is about 4cm of rope before the whipping. I prefer to keep it because the slightly unraveled end makes the ends easier to grab but you can cut it off if you prefer a neat and tight end.

Detail of the Whipped End

While Regulation only stocks the “Steel” as a color which is a nice blend of white, dark and lighter blue, Twisted Monk also offers black, crimson, denim, ivory, sunset and violet as colors. As an added feature, a conductive fiber which is not made out of cooper has been weaved into the rope. This allows for electric currency to be transmitted while not triggering metal allergies. This fiber is white and thus even the solid colors like black and crimson have some white spots.

Playing with the Conductive Rope

Switching from hemp or cotton rope to bamboo takes a bit of getting used to. Since it is softer, it hugs the body more, making it ideal for body harnesses (though the thickness of 6mm sometimes lacks a bit of “presence” on the body). But since it is softer, knots also tend to travel a bit. So while the rope is theoretically strong enough for most forms of bondage, I did not really use it as a primary fettering mean but add it to exiting ties.

Charging the Rope with a Violet Wand

The rope opened up a whole new world in e-stim play. Except silver covered cooper wire which is pure sting and agony, the Conductive Bamboo rope is the only large area electrode I am aware of. So suddenly entire legs or arms (always be aware that currency MUST NEVER TRAVEL ACROSS THE HEART!) could be energized surprising my bottoms and through the muscle reflexes even myself. Being soft, it enabled intricate layouts like a helix around the dick (something conductive silicone tubes are too stiff for) or around the toes. The latter is especially fun with a motion triggered e-stim box.

To connect the rope to an e-stim unit pole connection clamps are used. I recommend using isolated ones to keep the connection clamp itself being the connection to the body. Theoretically you can simply push a 2mm pin (4mm banana plugs are too thick) into the rope but the connection is unstable so I would not recommend it.

Connecting the Conductive Rope to an E-Stim Box with A Pole Connection Clamp

Despite the mass and contact area being relatively low, it is enough to counter a conductive loop or pad for example. So to really get the e-stim sensation at the rope position I recommend using a massive butt plug from E-Stim System. Even the smaller Classic or Micro ones did work well so no worries if the sub is anally inexperienced. Alternatively, the rope works also great with a violet wand. This is especially fun when used for a body harness when the currency suddenly flows all over the body.

Oxballs Meatplug Sounds

Vendor: Oxballs

Welcome back from the summer vacation! Taking some time off ToyTorture.com is important for me to get new toys and gather review experience with them, get creative and also enjoy the playroom without purposely use a specific toy just to get to know how it performs.

The new review season starts out with something a lot of you have been asking me for months: The 4th installment of the E-Stim Special. You can look forward to reviews of power boxes, anal electrodes and torture devices. So stay tuned and follow my social media channels.

To kick off the special, I am going to take a look at the Oxballs Meatplug Sounds.

The Oxballs Meatplug-1, -2, Sil-Plug-3 and Meatplug-5

Construction

All Meatplugs share the basic design: They are 80mm long and their base has a diameter of 15mm. On Just above the bottom there is a hole drilled through the base to house a 4mm banana plugs for connecting the sound to an e-stim power box. Above the hole there is an area textured with groves and ridges (or in case of the Meatplug-5 thin silicone rings) for better grip even with lubey fingers.

Out of this base the actual dilator tappers which looks differently on every sound:

  • Meatplug-1: 4mm tip increases over 23mm to 7.5mm, drops to 5.5mm over 5,5mm and then flows into the base within 26mm
  • Meatplug-2: 3.5mm tip increases to 5mm over 10mm. Afterwards there are 5 ridges 5.5mm wide grooves between them. The first ridge has a diameter of 5.5mm and then increases by ¾ of a millimeter each time until it reaches 19mm long shaft with 9mm which ultimately flows into the base.
  • Meatplug-3: This sound starts out with a 8mm half sphere which tapers to a 7mm thick and 5mm long shaft. This shaft extends to a 8.5mm long and 9mm thick bead. After another 5mm of shaft there is another bead (9mm long and 10mm diameter) and again after a shaft section a final bead (9mm long and 10.5mm diameter) until the dilator flows into the base.
  • Meatplug-4: After a relatively dull tip the shaft is smooth until it increases again with a dull yet rounded step twice. I have not bought this sound because it looked too extreme for me so I cannot say much about it.
  • Meatplug-5: The dilator part of this sound is a string of 7 beads with a height of 6.5mm and a diameter of 8mm tapering to 6.5mm at the connection point. Since the beads are not perfect spheres, the tip relatively dull.

The Meatplug-5 connected with Banana Plug Lead to an E-Stim Powerbox

All Meatplugs are made out of aircraft grade aluminum so they are supersmooth for easy and injury-free insertion. They are available in four colors: Polish aluminum (which is silver) and anodized in either red (which is actually a little bit pinkish), black and blue.

Oxballs also makes all five designs in high quality platinum silicone, then called Sil-Plugs. Of course these toys do not have a socket to connect them with an e-stim unit. But instead they come in two red tones and a yellow. My #3 is actually made out of silicone, first because I wanted to compare the different materials and second I could not get my hand on a Meatplug-3 in Europe.

Playing with the Meatplugs

The easiest of my four plugs to take is the #1. The tip is not too pointy to irritate the urethra and it slowly opens the sphincter just below the piss slit up to a reasonable degree. Even most sounding novices usually can take between 6mm and 8mm diameter right away. Just like in anal play, the sphincter needs to be seduced and slowly trained to open up. The plug design where the dilator tappers again after the maximum stretch makes it a good training toy for the sphincter.

Detail of Meatplug-1’s texture

The next toy on the intensity scale is #5. The blunt and large tip makes it necessary for the sphincter to be well pre-stretched (for example with the #1). But once inserted, the diameter does not increase making it easy to relax and get accustomed to the toy. Through the smooth bead design with not too extreme difference between maximum and minimum diameter the sensation of the sound being moved up and down inside the dick feels like a gentle massage.

Despite the sensible diameters, the Meatplug-2 is a challenging and intense sound. The ridges feel relative rough inside the sensitive urethra so the sphincter tenses up easily. But since the diameter increases with every ridge, it is always a challenge for it to open up again further and further when gently fucking the dick with it.

The most challenging one is the #3. While it is a little bit easier to initially take than the #5 due to the half-sphere tip, the stretch of the following beads is intense. 10mm and 10.5mm is really advanced stuff despite the gently increase in diameter. I am actually lucky that I have bought this sound in squishy silicone instead of unforgiving aluminum. I could not imagine how it would feel to stretch this diameters with no give – though I am enticed.

Detail of Meatplug-2’s texture

Despite their rougher texture, the #2 and #5 are not as bad as they look. Sure, they provide an intense stimulation but the grooves also trap a lot of lube so they re-lubricate to a certain extend.

When it comes to e-stim, caution is advised! Due to the little mass and contact area, the sensitivity should be increased very carefully. Also, since all sounds are naturally mono-poles, a second pole is needed for play. I recommend a conductive loop around the balls or the whole junk. Once wired up. each of my three aluminum plugs performs differently. The smoothest is the Meatplug-1. It provides the largest contact area and thus the sensation is easiest to control. The Meatplug-5 provides an interesting sensation combination. Whenever a new bead “pops” in, there is the stretching sensation but the e-stim intensity is reduced a bit. The stimulation drop is usually not noticed by the bottom but the intensity jumps when pulling out is quite noticeable. Just like with un-electrified play, the #2 is the most extreme. The contact area of the ridges is very small, so even the most delicate intensity adjustments will have significant effects.

Detail of Sil-Plug-3’s texture

When playing with sounds, there is actually only one right form of lube: Sterile water-based lube. A classic of sterile lube is KY Lube Steril which comes in a tin tube. But just like the sounding lubes offered by different kink companies as soon as you open them, there is chance of them becoming contaminated. The more often you open them, the higher the chance. So I recommend small sachets with contain between 3ml and 5ml of sterile lube which is enough to insert two or three sounds, depending on how long you use one sound. Because the urethra is one big mucosa, the water-based lube will be absorbed sooner or later. While this can be annoying you do not want to have a foreign material like silicone lube lingering in there after play, providing substrate for bacteria. So even if you prefer silicone or oil-based lube for anal play, I strongly recommend sterile water-based lube in sachets for sounding.

Just like using the right lube, cleaning is imperative when playing with sounds! The best sterile lube is useless if there are bacteria on the sounds. Since aluminum and platinum silicone are pretty resilient materials, I soak mine in hot water with dish soap and scrub them with a soft brush in order not to damage the smooth surface. After drying them on a paper towel, I sanitize them and store them away. Before play, I lay them out on a fresh paper towel, spray them with a sanitizer again, open the lube sachets, then put on a pair of gloves and as the last step, pick up the sounds for play.

Conclusion: Innovative violet wand electrode for a new, unique sensation.

Bad Dragon’s Fenrir, Crackers & Nocturne

From left to Right: Nocturne, Fenrir and Crackers

Vendor: Bad Dragon

Bad Dragon toys are somewhat of a phenomenon on this website. This is the forth review I am writing on their dildos (having also written about their masturbators and small sized lube applicators this year). But still, every week I get several questions about different toys I have not reviewed yet and if and when I will write about them. Initially I wanted to wait for fall to write this review to get at least a few months between the last and this review but some of you are really thirsty for a new review so I thought it would be a great toy to review before my summer break.

Detail of Cracker’s the Heavily Textured Glans and Shaft

Before I dive into the review, a big “Thank you!” to Bad Dragon who continuously support my blog and make these reviews possible!

Material

The most often question I get asked when it comes to Bad Dragon toys is: “Why are they relatively expensive compared to other toys?” Besides each being handmade, the material they use is Platinum Silicone which in my opinion is the best material for anal toys. Platinum is the catalyst used to make the silicone. Being a noble metal is it hypoallergenic and doesn’t cause adverse effect inside the body like tin which is used as a catalyst for cheap silicone. Besides being body-safe, platinum silicone can withstand acid and heat. In addition to the super-smooth surface which makes it hard to bacteria to linger, Bad Dragon toys can be cleaned easily and quickly: 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.

Detailf of Cracker’s and Nocturne’s Horns on the Base

Despite platinum silicone being a very resilient material, it must not been exposed to silicone lube! The silicone oil inside it will disintegrated the toy. The same basically applies to hybrid lubes. I write this warning in every review and thus have been contacted multiple times by people who have been using lubes containing silicone oil for years with their Bad Dragon toys and nothing happened. I still would err on the side of caution and use only water- or oil-based lubes. Since the surface is so smooth, I recommend using sticky water-based lube like Elbow Grease H2O Thick Gel.

The Platinum Silicone for anal toys comes in three firmness degrees: Soft, Medium and Firm,  XL toys are not being available in firm and due to collapsing too easily the Super Soft option is only available for masturbators and packers. Choosing the right firmness is weighing off different aspects: Soft toys are good for not yet well trained asses or really large toys because the sphincter can deform the toy a bit to fit well. However the softer the material the less stability a toy has so especially with long toys there is a chance they will collapse easily. The firmness also determines who the texture feels. Cast in soft silicone a ridge might easily flap away while in firm the sphincter might struggle to take it. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is, the larger the toy, the harder it will feel. In order to get an impression of the different firmness degrees, Bad Dragon sells a set of sample discs.

Fenrir’s Texture in Comparison to the Short Shaft and Large Knot

Shape

Currently Bad Dragon offers 65 different dildos and plugs. Almost all of them come in four sizes from small (like a small dick) to XL (single or double fist); some also are available in Mini. The designs are inspired by anthropomorphic beings like Dragons, Werewolves and Gryphons and some real ones like horses and dogs. Like most animal dicks they feature a knot just above the base which when ridden almost feels like getting punch-fisted. The shafts usually are heavily textured with bumps and ridges imitating veins and scales. This texture not only increases the diameter but also makes it harder to take the toys while on the plus-side stimulating the sensible nerve endings inside the sphincter. Keep this in mind when choosing the firmness!

Nocturne’s Unique Design with a Large Glans and Two Knots without a Shaft

When looking at the detailed size charts and choosing a larger size, it is important to keep in mind that the toys scale proportionally: The texturing gets deeper and thus more intense, the knot (most of the time the largest diameter of the shaft) moves down further. Since most anal enthusiasts can easily take larger diameter but are not well with taking big toys deeply, the knot might be out of reach due to being too low.

To some toys, two special features can be added. The first is the suction cup. If you can add it, get it! It makes playing and riding the toy much easier. As a material, silicone is somewhat sticky on its own (that’s the reason why no matter how thoroughly you clean it, there is ALWAYS dust on the toys!) but the strong cup which is integrated into the base design keeps the dildo in place (or sticking on the bathroom wall), even when riding it vigorously.

The second add-on is the cumtube which is a tube cast in the middle of the toy. It comes with a syringe you can fill with (cum-like) water-based lube and shoot it into your ass, simulating the feeling of the dragon’s dick cumming in you. Naturally, such a tube makes cleaning the toy more difficult. Also, in my testee panel the opinions on the cumtube’s effect are split. Some love it, some find it overrated. I would recommend ordering one of their Lil’Squirt toys to try out the effect for yourself before investing money into a bigger toy with a cumtube.

Fenrir the Wolf Dragon

Playing with the Dildos

Fenrir the Wolf Dragon

Fenrir open up the sphincter gently with a small, tapered glans. But just below it the shaft gets heavily textured with three deep ridges on both sides and string of bumps on the back. Behind this short shaft two massive spheres textured with veins form a massive knot. Between the knot and the base there is another shaft which is smaller than the one above the knot and relatively long. This makes keeping Fenrir in somewhat comfortable which the thick knot teases the prostate. Fenrir has quickly become one of my favorite toys due to the shaft being relatively short. So even if you are not depth-trained, you can experience the feeling of getting fucked by a knot. I played with Fenrir in both available firmness degrees: My friend’s is soft, mine is medium. When you have a small or tight colon, I recommend getting it in soft. The shaft above the knot bends more easily allowing it to “curl” up when the knot penetrates the sphincter.

My Fenrir is colored in Fenrir’s Signature, a fade from yellow to a dark bronze tone with golden sparkles.

Nocturne the Enderfang

Nocturne the Enderfang

The tip of Nocturne is a long, gently tapered glans which narrows a bit just to widen again for a slightly larger knot which again narrows and widens to a considerably larger knot. The shaft is not heavily textured. Between the knots there are some very soft ridges and on the backside of the middle-knot there are two strings of very subtle bumps. Though it is heavily curved which makes navigating it inside the depth of the colon more easily. Both these properties makes it good to start exploring depth play because the smoothness makes passing the second sphincter easy.

On the base facing away from the shaft there are three horns. Depending on your colon and thus in which way Nocturne gets inserted, the can stimulate the perineum when riding it. I have been told by a female reader that they are also great for stimulating the clitoris.

My Nocturne is colored in Pearce’s Natural and made in medium firmness. I had the opportunity to try a friend’s soft Nocturne and did not really like it. Being a novice to depth play, the additional firmness supports the light (!) force when going deep where a soft would curl up. Though once more experienced and going for a more vigorous deep fucking, the soft firmness is great to enjoy the alternating stretch of the three knots without causing injuries.

 

Crackers the Cockatrice

Crackers the Cockatrice

If you are into rough, tough loving, Crackers is the right toy for you! I do not say it often, but it presented a challenge to me, I have not yet mastered. The glans is massive with a relatively dull tip. It is textured with three ridges, each one increasing in depth and the lower two being textured with bumps. Below the glans there is a small, narrow “resting point” until the shaft quickly grows to a massive diameter and then tapers towards the base. The back of the shaft is textured with light ridges but the sides and the front feature bumps which raise higher the lower your get. The base is highly rugged but below the glans it features highly risen horns which depending how you take the toy, will stimulate your perineum.

Despite the soft firmness, due to the size and the texture Crackers is the most intense Bad Dragon toy I own. Due to not having a knob but just having a massive shaft, taking Crackers completely simply leaves you with a feeling of your ass being really stuffed.

KinkLab NeonWand Flex Capacitor

The KinkLab NeonWand Flex Capacitor

Vendor: Mister B

Construction

Like all violet wand attachments the rear end is made out of metal to connect the electrode with the want itself. Its round plug measures 23x11mm which is the standard for most modern violet wands. There are some out there which have a different socket size so if you don’t have the NeonWand from KinkLab (which I reviewed here), double check if it is the right size.

Unlike most other violet wand attachments, the conductive part is not made out of glass but conductive silicone. So it is flexible and does not break easily. Over the length of 55mm it tapers and arches a bit back before opening up to the 55mm long head. There the silicone is only 7mm thick so it is very flexible. The head is approx. 30° angular to the shaft which allows for precise targeting during play without the power unit getting into way. After 20mm the head splits into to 35mm long prongs which have slightly curved forward ends. The space between the prongs’ end is 7.5mm.

Detail of the Head with the Gap between the Prongs

Playing with the Flex Capacitor

Before I got the Flex Capacitor I had been playing with Violet Wands for almost half a decade but just with glass electrodes. Through the different material properties of silicone it greatly enriched my play. First, there is the possibility to press a large area of the electrode against the skin. While the small lightning between the electrode and the body has a pinching sensation, pressing the entire head against the skin creates a buzzing sensation – which depending on the power level can certainly be agonizing. Simply running the prong tips over the skin almost feels like a wartenberg wheel being used.

Of course when you lift the electrode off the skin, the lightning occurs again. Like all electricity, it takes the shortest way. When you bring both prongs parallel to the body, both ends emit a lightning. This can be incorporated into play when through slightly twisting the violet wand the lightning jumps from one end to the other. Sadly through the curved ends there is no way to bring the entire head completely parallel to the body to create a “lightning circle”. Yet the small tip size of the individual prongs makes them great for precise targeting.

Detail of the Lightning emited from the Electrode

The gap between the prongs opens up a world of new play possibilities: “Grabbing” body parts with lightning. My testees most often circled around nipples, teased foreskin when still covering the glans or the frenulum when after exposing the glans. While this is good fun the gap could be considerably larger for example to fit an entire dick or just the glans between the prongs. Moving up and down the shaft would probably make for an interesting experience!

Last but not least, there is a practical aspect: Most modern violet wands do not have moving parts anymore which makes them usable for travel. But with the electrodes being made out of glass, even in well-padded cases I was always afraid to take mine on the road. But since silicone does not have this issue, I actually have been taking mine to scenes and play parties quite often since I have gotten the Flex Capacitor.

Conclusion: Innovative violet wand electrode for a new, unique sensation.

The belt leather strap is 25mm wide and lined with soft leather. 50mm behind the flap which houses the lockable roller-buckle the strap widens to 40m. This section is 120mm long and is padded with soft foam. Into the last, also 120mm long section of the strap holes have been punched for the buckle. The spacing allows the cuffs to adjust for almost every size of wrist; starting at a tiny diameter of 50mm up to a massive 100mm wrist diameter.

Detail of the Padding

The two cuffs are connected cross-over by two strong rivets. This way the cuffs don’t twist. Between them is an 80mm long and 25mm wide strap of leather which has welded D-rings on both ends. The Handcuffs come with a pair of keyed alike Master Locks.

Playing with the Leather Handcuffs

Handcuffs are one of the most common pervertable and thus bondage means in BDSM scene. Widely available they come loaded with fetish fantasies and are easy to use. But long-term wearing of tightly fitted handcuffs can lead to serious nerve damage and wrist injuries. So as hot as – carefully! – snapping handcuffs around the bottom’s wrist, they should not be worn during an entire scene. Through the wide strap and the padding these cuffs can be worn indefinitely long.

Detail of one of the D-rings

Unlike professional handcuffs these leather ones have to anchor points to incorporate them into a more elaborate bondage layout. My testees most often used them for rope bondage setups because the rope ran very smoothly through the D-rings. In combination with leather or rubber gear and toys I used them for impromptu shoulder-to-wrist restraints by locking them to a harness or connect them to a ball stretcher with a D-ring for an interesting feedback loop. The wide strap and padding provides some support for the wrist. So the handcuffs can be used for stress bondage like a hogtie. Unlike in a traditional hogtie the wrist are not in line with arms but oblique and over-cross. This adds extra stress to the arms and shoulders once the sub starts to move his legs. The leather handcuffs can even be used for limited suspension like keeping the sub on the tip of his toes, though they are not made for real suspension bondage.

Detail of the Locking Buckle

The large holes for the lockable buckle require rather large spacing between the holes. This makes a secure adjustment sometimes difficult when the wrist is just too large for the tighter hole and the next hole makes the fettering considerably looser. A locking pin with the consequently tighter spacing would have been better and more secure. To tell the truth this only happened once during the 6 month testing period. The cross-over design makes it really difficult to find a point of application to wiggle out of them.

Conclusion: Simple yet versatile handcuff like restraints.

Tweezer Nipple Clamps

The Tweezer Nipple Clamps from Mr S and Regulation

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

These are one of the first clamps I have ever bought and I thought I already reviewed them years ago – until last week when a reader asked for my thoughts on these clamps and I realized I never reviewed them. So better late than never, here are my thoughts on the Tweezer Nipple Clamps.

Construction

The clamps are made out of folded spring steel. Each branch is approx. 7cm long and the last centimeter is bent towards each other. To cover up the sharp edges and for a little bit better grip the last 2cms are covered by vinyl. On both branches runs a slider for adjusting the clamps’ pressure. The clamps are connected by a chain which is attached to rings to prevent the chain from tangling up. The total length of rings and chain is 30cm.

Detail of the Vinyl Covered Tips

Playing with the Tweezer Nipple Clamps

To attach the clamps to the sub’s nipple, ball skin or frenulum, the branches must simply be gently pulled apart and the skin or tissue placed between the tips. Gripping the branches is best done with the finger nails. It still can done wearing thin police or rubber examination gloves. But bulkier ones like industrial rubber, MX or motorcycle gloves make it impossible. Like all larger clamps which center of gravity is towards the back, the clamps should be attached parallel to the body to keep them from involuntarily slipping off. Since they are very sleek and slim, the clamps are perfect to be worn under cloths.

Most of the testees described the initial pressure sensation as medium-intense; a nice, notable and tantalizing presence for the experienced nipple player but nothing for a novice! The pressure is strong enough to keep the Tweezers on the nipple even after the tissue water has been displaced. Though the grip is not strong enough to hold dropping weights or pull when tying the clamps to moving limbs. For more experience pain pigs or when during the scene the nipples become less sensitive, the pressure and thus the pain can be increased by moving the slider towards the tip. This should be done slowly because these clamps have brought an experience nipple pain pig to tears during the testing. If this is not enough, the small contact points leave most of the nipple exposed which provides room for wax, icy-hot or pin wheels for example…

Detail of the Sliders to Adjust the Intensity

The Tweezer Clamps are really made for bare skin play. The small contact surface needs the tissue to dig into. So a good way to prepare the nipple is working with nipple suckers to add puffiness (and sensitivity). While attaching the clamps somehow works through thin rubber (up to approx. 0.4mm) or lycra, leather or thicker rubber do not go well with these clamps. The nipple should also dry and lube-free because of the smooth vinyl cover.

Conclusion: Highly adjustable clamps for the more experience Nipple Player.

JimSupport Fuck Bench

The JimSupport Fuck Bench

As most of you know, two of my major kinks are fisting and impact play. When it comes to fisting, I like intense (some say extreme) hard and rough punching and I am glad that I have gotten a sling where I can lay comfortably in and just enjoy the thrusting sensation somewhere between agony and ecstasy. But since the sling is suspended from the ceiling on chains (and in a rather unusual and creative way to fit under a pointed gable), a lot of thrusting power is lost to the chains moving. So I always wonder “How more intense could the punching be if the play furniture I am lying on does not move?”

The JimSupport Fuck Bench seems to be the right addition to my playroom for that. I have sat on and laid in other play furniture from them and the sturdy build and little flex of them promise great stability even during a heavy pounding on the Fuck Bench. The platform stands about 59cm tall which allows the top to sit comfortably in front of a greedy hole and punch in easily, unlike when top and bottom are lying on the floor where the angle of the fist entering the ass can be awkward. The platform is padded and covered in vinyl so regardless of lube dripping or piss spilling during the scene, it can be cleaned easily.

Detail of the Raised Middle Segment

The middle segment of the Fuck Bench can be raised, turning it into a spanking bench – or added support for people who enjoy getting fisted extensively in doggy style. This versatility makes the furniture a nice item for small playrooms where it can accommodate many different types of scene with just taking up little space. Since the legs can be easily disassembled, the Fuck Bench is an ideal piece of furniture for people who no playroom at all and need to store the play equipment away after the scene. Without the legs the table is just 20cm high and thus should fit under most beds.

The JimSupport Fuck Bench with a Raised Middle Segment Used for Spanking

The Fuck Bench costs $619.95 at Mr S. If you want to suspend the bench from the ceiling, either purchase the Sling Combo directly for $648.90 or if you have a bench already and want to try something new, Mr S sales a conversion kit for $58.95.

The Fuck Bench combined with the Sling Conversion Kit

Depending on your favorite kind of play, JimSupport offers a number of useful accessories. If you are into fisting, the leg holders are useful. Like stirrups at a sling they help keeping the legs up even during long fisting scenes. For taller people whose head would lie beyond the bench the head rest is a wise investment. Padded like the bench the distance to the bench’s edge can be adjusted to fit even very tall people. Impact players (or fisters who fear their fistees might run away) should get the universal bondage points to add anchor points for restraints or rope.

Ever since I started reviewing anal toys way back in 2015, I was focusing on anal toys either for width or sphincter sensation play. But quickly after I published the first anal toy review, I was getting questions about toys for depth play. Since I am more of a width than a depth fistee, it took some time to get enough testee and own experience to write this review.

The toys used for this review were the large Slink on loan from TeckPup and my own Depth Probe 1.25×20’’.

Construction

Despite looking quite different, both toys share the material. Like all SquarePeg toys, they are made out of platinum silicone which is hypoallergenic and easy to clean. While the Slink is made out of their SuperSoft Silicone and comes in their signature Bronze or stylish Graphite, the Depth Probe is available in Firm Black.

The SquarePeg Slink and Depth Toy with a Splitter in Graphite as a Color Example

The design of the Slink is a very long-drawn-out cone with gently rounded tip. After the maximum diameter it tappers like a butt plug and ends in a base which is approximately 20% larger in diameter than the maximum stretch, so the entire toy is not accidently swallowed by a greedy hole. As a special order the FlushCup suction cup can be added to the base of the Slink.

The Depth Probe is one long solid silicone hose. The top tenth is a bit thickened and has a dull tip while the bottom is shaped like a grip. On one side of the hose there is an inch scale to determine how deep the toy has been inserted yet.

Playing with the the Slink & Depth Probe

Depth play is one of the most delicate forms of anal play. Once you leave the rectum the colon is covered in sensitive mucosa which when being exposed to tactile stimulation causes the body to tense up. Since the colon is folded inside the lower torso, this kind of manual manipulation is necessary to “straighten” the colon out. So entering this sensitive part of the body with a large object like a hand is a real challenge, thus depth toys are a useful tool when starting out depth play.

Detail of the Depth Probe’s Thickened Tip

For getting into depth play, most testees found the Depth Probe more useful. Being made out of “firm” (still, you can tie a knot in my 20’’ long one…) silicone, it is a less floppy than the Slink and thus easier too control. The dull tip makes getting around the bends more difficult but the added stiffness opens up the colon for the tube which follows and straights the colon out more easily.

The pointy tip of the Slink on the other hand can feel a bit spiky on the mucosa. Also, the floppiness makes it a bit difficult to get around the first bend which connects the rectum and colon. But once inside the flow of the toy and the nimbleness makes it easier to get around the bends. The increasing diameter helps to stretch the tight colon over time to prepare it for a hand. When interested in self-play, the Slink with the suction cup is the best option. To insert an anal toy, most people crouch or squat which tenses up the colon; for sitting on and gently riding them, both toys are too soft. But attaching the Slink to a tile wall and wiggle the ass until the Slink finds it way, is the most relaxed way to stuff oneself deep.

Detail of the Slink’s pointy Tip

Especially when playing with the longest Depth Probe, a deep cleanout before play is a must. Usually a human’s large intestine is 1.5m long so reaching the small intestine with a hand or a toy is unlikely. But if this happens and bacteria from the large enter the small intestine, serious infections can happen. Another important safety advice is, regardless of the play style or D/s relationship between top and bottom, depth play should never be done forcefully! While a sphincter and the rectum can take a relatively hard beating especially after training, the colon’s mucosa stays fragile and tearing it can lead to serious, possibly lethal injuries and infections!

As already said, both toys are easy to clean so they are ideal to be used on different partners after a thorough cleaning. The smooth surface makes it difficult for bacteria to settle and the material can be autoclaved (after cleaning off any lube residue!) to be entirely sure. But also soaking it in hot water with dish soap and vinegar cleaner, letting it dry and spraying sanitizer on it, works well, especially when you want to use it again quickly.
