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.

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.

Leather Handcuffs

The Mr S Leather Handcuffs

Vendor: Mr S

Construction

The Leather Handcuffs are made out of two slim cuffs made out of belt leather. 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.

Where to buy?

When I am in the USA or Canada, I get my SquarePeg toys from Mr S. The Slink costs between $69.95 and $369.95 and the Depth Probe between $59.95 and $169.95, depending on the size. In Europe, Regulation has the widest selection and actually lowest price of SquarePeg toys. The Slink retails between £69.99 and £354.99 and the Depth Probe between £79.99 and £134.99.

Fetters Padded Fist Mitts

The Fetters Padded Fist Mitts

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

The basic design of this toy are mono mittens which enclose the entire hand. They are conically shaped for a tight fit around the cuff. The mitts are padded all around with a medium firm padding.  The overall length of the body is 21cm and comes in two sizes: Small/Medium for a clenched fists circumference between 22.5cm and 27.5cm and Medium/Large a circumference between 28cm and 32cm. Regardless of the size, the cut of the mitts is rather restrictive. It is not possible to enter them with a clenched fist and even after they are broken in, putting them on takes a bit of strength – which bothered none of the bondage bottoms in the test panel.

Detail of the Locking Post to close the Mitts and one of the D-rings

The mitts are closed with a thick belt leather strap. It is attached to the body with two rivets. Between them there is a welded D-ring. There is another one at the end of the strap. What makes the strap special is the way it is closed: Unlike most other restraints, the mitts are not closed with a (roller) buckle but just with a locking pin. The holes in the strap have a 10mm spacing. The tight spacing in combination with the thick padding allows for the mitts to be fettered tight enough to make them inescapable.

I guess at this point I do not have to say much about the material quality anymore. Like every other piece of Fetters bondage gear the mitts are made out of highest quality leather which just smells awesome!

Detail of the Second D-ring on top of the Body

Playing with the Padded Fist Mitts

Mitts are the toy category to go to when the sub’s hand should be rendered useless. And these ones excel in it. The clenched fists in combination with the thick padding makes grabbing objects almost impossible. Grabbing larger, lighters ones like a gym bottle for hydration is still possible but requires a lot of attention and some practice. But most other tasks like operating a door handle or manipulating the toys and bondage gear put onto him, won’t be possible. This includes operation his dick. Even with spit or lube, only one of the testee subs could create enough friction through the padding to jerk off.

Detail of the Padding and the Expension Fold for easier Entry

Naturally the two D-rings are great for creative bondage layouts. The number of D-rings is especially useful when incorporating the mitts in a rope bondage setup. Since the mitts can only be closed using a lock, the sub soon will associate the mitts with inescapability, adding an important mental element to the play.

Another classic layout is for pet play: Simply attach connect the mitts with a collar and the sub is forced to walk on his elbows which is very stressful yet dehumanizing (for this layout elbow pads are a must!). Less intense is walking on all fours using his fists. In this situation the padding is thick enough for most kind of pet play, especially indoor and outdoor on tarmac and paved streets. For cobble stone roads and gravel paths the padding is a bit thin.

Seadragon Lil’Squirt

Toy Properties

Form: Dildo
Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: 66 different ones possible
Firmness: Soft; does not collapse when standing up.
Lube: Water, Oil
Cleaning: Soaking in hot water with dish-soap than use sanitizer. If the cum tube has been used, full and empty the system two to three times with warm soap water to clean out lube residue.
Safer Sex: Clean and sanitize it thoroughly
Storage: Store in a well-ventilated place not touching other toys to prevent damage.

Vendor: Bad Dragon

Construction

Like all Bad Dragon toys, the Lil’Squirt’s design was inspired by the genitals of an anthropomorphic animal, in this case a seadragon. This leads to a stimulating texture covering the surface of the toy. The smooth glans is nicely tapered for easy insertion. Just below the rim are some gentle ridges which flow into three thick skeins. Just above the thick knot there are three deep ridges. At the bottom of the toy there is a prepuce shaped base.

The Bad Dragon Seadragon Lil’Squirt in Midnight Sky

The useable length of this dildo is just short of 90mm and the largest diameter is the knot with 31.5mm. The base at the bottom measures 42x50mm to prevent the dildo of accidently being sucked into the ass. At the tip of the glans there is a “piss” hole which connects to a hose at the bottom of the toy. The clear, flexible hose is 84cm long. Attached to it is a syringe with 60ml capacity.

Detail of the Seadragon’s Texture

Like the name implies: This toy is little compared to other Bad Dragon toys. If you like the shape but want to step up your game, take a look at their Spritz dildo which has the same design but comes in sizes from beginner friendly to ass busting. Like most Bad Dragon toys Spritz can also be outfitted with a cum tube, turning it into a Giant Squirt I guess.

Playing with the Seadragon Lil’Squirt

As an anal toy on its own, all Bad Dragon Lil’Squirts are for the real novice who wants to train his ass to take a dick; even the Mini size on other models is considerably larger than the Seadragon’s which is the largest of the Lil’Squirts. With the small size and soft material firmness they are ideal for people who cramp easily and need to start out with something small and comfortable to accustom their sphincter of being penetrated. Despite the size the texture stimulates the delicate nerve endings inside the sphincter almost like the Lil’Squirt’s big brothers.

Size Comparison: Seadragon Lil’Squirt lying on an XL Crackers

For the rectal experienced player, the Lil’Squirt works great as a lube applicator or enema toy. Simply fill the syringe with your favorite water-based lube (silicone lube will disintegrate the hose and the toy!), push the air out of the tube until the lube oozes out of the tip of the glans and push the Lil’Squirt in. Depending on the force of the piston being pushed down, the feeling of lube entering the body is somewhere between a gentle flooding and having a hard shooter orgasm long and forcefully inside the ass. The injection mechanism is sealed enough even for liquids with low viscosity like piss or water. Especially for this kind of play, the syringe can be replaced with a larger capacity one.

Cum Lube oozing out of the Cum Tube

Finally, with a price tag of just $35, the Lil’Squirt is an inexpensive way to try out if the feeling of a cum tube is pleasurable before investing in a big toy with that feature.

Where to buy?

All Bad Dragon toys are sold exclusively through the manufacturer. All Lil’Squirts cost $35, regardless of the model and the color.

Oxballs 360 Sling

The Oxballs 360 Sling

Vendor: Mr S (USA) and Regulation London (EU)

Construction

The 360 Sling is a new iteration of Oxballs’ popular cock and ball sling. I already reviewed several different ones, so it was a natural to also give the 360 a thorough workout. What sets it apart is the compact design. Measuring 75x60x45mm it is almost the same size than the Unit X Stretch. But instead of the Unit X Stretch’s thin walls, the 360 is made out of thick, bulgy tubes having a diameter between 16mm and 24mm. The hole for the dick has a diameter of 30mm. Below it is a 20mm thick tube which separates the balls. The hole for them is a 9x30mm slit. The half below the cock hole is a bit oblique so the junk is pushed forward.

Detail of the Oblique Design

As almost all Oxballs dick and ball toys it is made out of super stretchy FLEX-TPR which comes in classic black, discreet clear or Oxball’s new Steel color.

Playing with the 360 Sling

The big question with all Oxballs sling is: How and how difficult is it to put the toy on? Compared to the other ones I have reviewed I would say, fairly easy. As always start with the balls and then put it over your dick. If you got low-hangers or a beefy ball sack, getting your balls through the narrow slit can be a bit of a challenge. But for most dicks and balls the large holes give enough room for the junk to roam freely when soft so the 360 is comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Especially through the thick tubes and the oblique design, the sling makes a big package and bulge. So it is an ideal toy for fetish play involving watching, touching or worshipping big packages. Naturally the package comes out best with underwear which hugs the junk like the Mr S logo briefs or their heavy duty gangbang jockstrap. Despite its accommodating design and stretchy, forgiving material, it is tight enough to restrict the blood flow just enough to function as a cockring. Through the thickness of the tubes, the 360 can work as a seal for pumping your dick when you are using thick-wall instead of flanged  cylinders which diameter are not too much larger than you dick’s diameter.

Illustration of the Bulge-Creating Properties

If you have got low-hangers like me, there is a bit of sad news: With just 20mm the stretch on the balls is too little. The balls being pushed forwards adds a little bit of bounciness to jerking off or fucking, but for a real effect you should at least add one or two other rings from Oxballs.

FLEX-TPR is a pretty resilient material so you can safely use it with any kind of lube, making it ideal for gunging worshipping/ wrestling scenes where a big package is appealing. Cleaning it is equally easy: Warm water, dish soap and a sanitizer after it dried will keep it in good shape for scenes to come.

Conclusion: Compact cock and ball sling which makes a great bulge.

Shock Collars 101

Yesterday someone on Twitter asked for opinions/ advice on shock collars and I was glad to answer his questions. Since there are not many resources on shock collars out there, I decided to condense what I wrote on Twitter into this little piece.

The main element of a shock collar is small box which houses power generator and two stud-like electrodes. The “professional” models designed for dogs are attached to the body using a nylon strap. There are also fetish models out there which feature a rubber or leather collar or are integrated into a metal collar. The shocks are controlled by a wireless transmitter. Depending on the model it can have a range of up to kilometer on an open area. Others are compatible with beacons which trigger the shocks once a line is crossed like an invisible fence.

Once the trigger is pressed, it works like an e-stim power box with build-in electrodes. However, unlike erotic e-stim devices, the shock is not pulsed but continuous and no program is modulated onto pulse. Since all professional models are designed to penetrate a dog’s thick fur, they must not be used on humans! The necessary high intensity applied on bare skin can lead to burns, spasms and especially on the neck permanent nerve damage. If the electrodes face the bottom of the balls, they can even cause permanent infertility.

I am aware that a lot of people will now say that they have been using shock collars for years without any problems. A common argument in the discussion is that you can use low levels which are not dangerous. In my book, shock collars are like solo breath play: It can go well a thousand times, until this one, fatal time. Furthermore, most of the time nerve damage does not occur instantaneous but develops over time. While lower levels are less dangerous, I do not think they are a valid argument. As usage of the shock collar progresses, the sub will get desensitized and used to the intensity, leading to an escalation. This can be facilitated by endorphins (on both sides when the top is getting greedy) during play and the power dynamic between the play partners leading to pushing each others’ limits. And this does not take into consideration that some boxes don’t offer different channels for the trigger so strangers can (un)intentionally shock the sub without the top’s control. Another grave danger is the fact that there are a shockingly large number of shock collars available which put out DC, especially from Asian manufacturers (If you don’t know why DC is potentially lethal, read my E-Stim 101)!

If you still want to use a shock collar, you should also consider the legal implications. In some countries, shock collars are more or less illegal. In Germany they are considered a weapon. Owing them requires a license and they must be transported in a specific manner. In Austria selling, buying, owning and using them is illegal. Since shock collars are explicitly not made for humans, (permanent) injuries cause by them are most likely not covered by liability insurance. Furthermore these injuries might be considered a form of battery the sub is not able to consent to which can be a basis for criminal charges.

Finally, if you still want to use a shock collar, here are the pieces of advice I promised:

  1. Buy a model for erotic use: There are models out there designed to be used on humans which are somewhat safe (the neck is still not the best play to apply e-stim). However, their intensity is so low that it will not impress most real pain pigs or subs who need real punishment to comply. Furthermore, most of the models are made in Asia so be extra-careful if they put out AC.
  2. If you like the look of a real shock collar, only put it on a sub without batteries.
  3. If you feel that only a shock collar can make your sub comply, tie it around his thighs. It is saver than the neck and the pain and fear of collapsing should make him comply.

Oxballs Recycler

The Oxballs Recycler

Vendor: Oxballs

After posting the mandatory toy arrival post on Twitter and Tumblr in November, I have had a steady stream of messages asking me if the toy works respectively holds up the promise the design makes. After a long and thorough testing period, these simple questions turned out to be quite difficult to answer.

Construction

In order to create this unique setup, Oxballs combined different, already existing toys in a new, clever way using clear, 9.5mm diameter silicone hoses. A 65mm long piece connects the Piss Lock which I reviewed in February with two 90cm long hoses. One hose goes to the Chomp Gag which I reviewed last week, the other to an aluminum tunnel butt plug. My set has the medium size plug which has an overall length of 80mm, a maximum circumference of 38mm and a head length of 55mm. There is also a large version available but with a maximum diameter of 49mm also not really large, especially for anal savvy bottoms. There is an adjustable clamp on the hose leading to the plug to either direct the liquid flow towards the gag or keep it inside the rectum.

Detail of the Tunnel Butt Plug with the Adjustable Clamp

Playing with the Recycler

There are two major play scenarios for this toy, the first one being turning the sub into a self-sustaining piss recycler. It is a hot fantasy of many subs to be forced to drink their own piss over and over and the layout of the toy promises exactly that. Sadly, in reality it does not work so easily because much to my constant annoyance even SM toys have to surrender to physical laws – despite Patrick Califia calling SM sexual magic – which means gravity will pull all liquids to the lowest point in a closed system. Looking at the three most common bondage positions – lying down, standing/ kneeling or doggy – either the dick is the lowest point of the ass with the anus being the lowest point of the rectum. So while some piss will flow into the rectum, the majority will stay inside the hose because the weight of the water column is not high enough to push it inside. When shutting off the hose to the plug or connect the Piss Lock directly to the Chomp Gag, you are facing the same problem. If the sub isn’t tied on a tilted bondage table with the head facing down, the head with the gag will always be higher than the dick. With an internal diameter of 7mm, the 90cm hose has a capacity of approx. 140ml so the sub should have a large load inside his bladder in order for a significant amount of piss to reach his mouth. But this is only the case if the sub’s dick is large enough to fill the Piss Lock well enough to seal it. Otherwise the piss will flow out of the cage instead of into the tube. To a certain extend sucking on the gag helps the piss to travel up.

The next scenario is being the courtesy piss bottom at a party. If you want to fill his ass and his mouth, he should either be lying down or be in doggy position. If he kneels you need to connect the short hose to the gag and the long one to the funnel. Also, you should tighten the clamp a bit to reduce flow to the plug and additionally encourage him suck, otherwise no piss will reach his mouth. Naturally, at a busy party it is way too complicated to put the Urinal Lock over each dick, especially in this setup only one can piss into the sub at the same time. My recommendation: Get the IKEA Chosigt funnel set (which also comes in yellow). The tube of the larger one has diameter of 10mm, so isolation tape can be used to seal the gapes and attach the hose to the funnel.

After all this negativity, all piss bottoms involved in the testing process liked the Recycler for the mind fuck it provided. After you played with it for a bit, you learn all the kinks to make it work and the right scenarios where it will deliver. As you can read in the separate reviews, the parts of this toy are really great but sadly the sum cannot quite live up to it.
