ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer III – Doxy No 3 & Nexus Doxy Attachments

The Doxy Die Cast

As some of you might know, I travel a bit for work. And if I travel for play, I usually take an entire suitcase of toys with me. So space and weight is always a factor when it comes to choose which toy to take with me. And sadly, sometimes due to that a toy has to stay at home.

Last year, I reviewed the Doxy Die Cast, the best wand massager I have come across yet. Yes, even better than the original Hitachi Magic Wand. In my playroom, it is put to very good use because it is the favorite toy of some of my regulars. Almost every guest, I use the Die Cast on, wants one afterwards. BUT: It is rather large and heavy, having a large external power adapter to drive the intense vibrations. Because of that, especially when I am flying or traveling to Berlin for a play weekend, the limited capacity of my ONE carry-on toy suitcase is simply too small. So every other trip I think “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a massager now?”

The Doxy Die Cast with the Neuxs Masturbator Sleeve Attached to it

In late 2017 Doxy introduced a smaller, lighter but still die cast case wand massager: The No 3. They seem to have hit a spot with a more portable yet powerful massager because ever since it has been in the “Top 5 Requested Reviews”.

Initially most gay kinkster who wrote to me were skeptical about the No 3 because the more nimble design meant a smaller head which could not accommodate attachments like a masturbator sleeve. As much as that was inconvenient, I did not really care because 40% of the time when I am using my Doxy, it is for massaging tight muscles (and I do not mean the penis!). And on the road for the other 60%, a small head stimulating the taint or the frenulum would have been enough for me.

The Nexus Prostate Massageer Attachment for the Doxy No 3

But this year Doxy teamed out with Nexus, most prominently know for their prostate toys, and made silicone attachments for the No 3. Unlike with the traditional massagers you do not pull them over the head but unscrew the massager’s head and put the attachment on. As a vigorous stroker a jerking-off sleeve which does not come off when moving up and down the shaft is a great innovation. Thinking about when using my Doxy Die Cast in the playroom on the dick and adding a No 3 with Nexus’ prostate massager attachments leave to evil fantasies. So there are many good reasons why I would want my stockings stuffed with the Doxy No 3 and both male Nexus attachments.[i]

The Doxy No 3 costs £129 and is only available in a nice matt silver. The Nexus masturbator sleeve and prostate massager both costs £35.

Wrist Binder

The 665 Leather Wrist Binder

Vendor: 665 Leather

Construction

The Wrist Binder look a bit like handcuffs from the early 20th century and is made milled out of 25mm thick aircraft-grade aluminum. The material makes them really light at 318g without compromising the sturdiness and rigidness. All edges have been properly deburred to prevent cuts and scratches. Out of the box the Wrist Binder have a beautiful stroke matting but since aluminum is a soft material it quickly gets tarnished with scratches.

Detail of the Hing Mechanism in Use

For comfortable wearing the wrists are put cuffs shaped like stretched ovals measuring 75x57mm. They are large enough even for larger wrists but small enough that a person with a M glove size and not too collapsible hands can’t pull them out. The two cuffs are connected by a twistable hinge. The cuffs are closed by pad locks which are put through eyelets on the top of the long side of the cuff. The eyelets have a diameter of 7mm which is a standard pad lock size just in case there is already a keyed-alike lock system in use. Otherwise the Wrist Binder came with two brass Master Locks. On each side, parallel to the hinge in the middle, there is an 13mm eyelet milled out of 9mm thick aluminum.

The Wrist Binder as shown on 665 Leather’s Website

Playing with the Wrist Binder

The Wrist Binder was a gift from a couple of friends for my birthday this March. It was on my wishlist because I was looking for restraints to incorporate into rope bondage. On 665 Leather’s website I found Wrist Binder pictured on the right: The look like a handcuff with a hinge on one side, an eyelet for a pad lock on the other side and two huge eyelets in the middle for rope. What my friends got from the US was what I am reviewing here. So I got in touch with 665 Leather, trying to get the item my friend ordered for me. I was told that on the website are pictures of the old version and I have gotten the new one. Roughly 9 months after my birthday the still have not changed the pictures on their website so I am not sure what toy will be sent when the “Wrist Binder” is ordered through the link below.

Detail of the Locking with the Pad Lock Shipped with the Toy

As a handcuff the Wrist Binder works really well. Through the ergonomic shape and the rounded edges they are comfortable to wear even for extended periods of time. The width of the aluminum, the ability to twist the wrists against each other and the fact that they can’t be retightened almost eliminates the risk of nerve damage which sometimes can occur when police handcuffs are worn too tight or for too long. If a stricter bondage is desired, a 300mm zip-tie can be used instead of pad locks. This will limit the ability to twist immensely.

But how does the Wrist Binder work incorporated in a bondage layout, using rope, chain or other means? For the original purpose – rope bondage – they do not work at all! Through the ability to twist, unintended pull and tangling can happen, messing up the rigging. In a testing scene I was actually forced to cut rope for the first time in my life because while twisting, rope got caught in the hinge!

Detail of how Easily the Satin Finish scratches

The position of the bondage anchor points are also unfortunate for attaching them easily to collars, shoulder restraints, etc. The top always has to use carabiners, chain or something else to create an anchor point above the wrists not next to them. For stress position, like the arms stretched out, I guess it is a bit better than the one on their website because through the twisting the hands can be brought into a somewhat more comfortable position if need. However, since the metal does not give in, a sub put into stress position using this restraint must be watched extra well!

Conclusion: Good handcuff with sadly little usage for the two bondage anchor points.
Pro Cons Where to get Price
Secure and comfortable to wear for long periods of time … but hinge makes bondage anchor points difficult to use 665 Leather $78
Keyed-alike locks can be used  
Wrists can be comfortable positioned through hinge…

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer II –Riding Crop & DD Strap

Nikolaus Day 2018

The German Christmas tradition knows many rituals. One of the is Nikolaus Day on December 6th. On December 5th you place a well polished boot – or nowadays well cleaned sneaker – in front of your door, hoping that Sankt Nikolaus will come by at night and fill the footwear with candy and small toys when you have been good. But in the German folk lore he does not travel alone. He is accompanied by Knecht Ruprecht, a sinister and violent helper of Nikolaus who will leave a bushel of birch twigs in your shoe when you have been a naughty boy, warning you he will return to spank the naughtiness out of you.

The London Tanners Riding Crop

Looking at my Shox ID, apparently I have been a good boy. But this doesn’t stop me to put some toys on my wish list that would make Knecht Ruprecht’s duties easier. A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the London Tanners Mill Strap which I like a lot for being well made. Having a growing urge to spank a greedy, noisy bottom on a regular basis, I wondered what is missing in my collection – and my readers‘ and thus worth getting my hands on to review.

First, a traditional riding crop. Already in the iconic drawings of Tom of Finland, many BLUF men had a riding crop sticking in their boots’ shaft. After finally having gotten proper engineer boots as the last piece of a complete leather uniform, this accessory would both be hot and functional. I would choose the London Tanners’ riding crop over equestrian riding crops from sporting good stores because the quality probably higher but with a length of 67cm it is considerably longer than commercial ones which would just look absurdly small on me.

The London Tanners DD Strap

Second their DD Strap. I have many spanking implements. More than I can actually store easily accessible in my playroom. But despite the vast collection, I am actually lacking a basic piece: A leather paddle large enough to hit both cheeks. I have bullet-proof and aluminum paddles which do this job but not a leather one. The sound and feeling of high quality leather compressing warm, soft skin is simply something completely different and arousing! So the DD Strap is something that would make my dick hard and my spankees scream.

As much as I love the rich tobacco color of the Mill Strap, both toys being classics, I would want to add them in classic BDSM black to my collection. While the Riding Crop at 79€ and the DD Strap at 109€ are on the higher end of the impact toy price range, if their craftsman’s quality and material is like the Mill Strap, they are worth their money! They are something to bequest.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer I – Vector Heavy Padded Bondage Sleeves

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer I – Vector Heavy Padded Bondage Sleeves

From 2012 to 2015 on each  Advent Sunday I presented you some (unusual) kinky Christmas gifts. The last two years due to being too busy with work I let this tradition slip but this year I decided to pick it up again. I did some research – and found only the same quirky stuff I recommended the last years. Since one of the most often asked reader questions is “Is there anything a guy with your toy collection still wants?”, I decided to write down what would be on my kinky wish list.

Detail of the Arms Tied Down on the Sides

The first item on the list are the Mr S Vector Heavy Padded Bondage Sleeves. They are basically the arms of their amazing Vector Ultra-Padded Straitjacket with a harness instead of body. I know, for most bondage aficionados, stricter, tighter, more layered bondage is appealing but I am more a practical kind of guy with a bit of claustrophobia. So these sleeves are perfect for me. They appear to be as effective in immobilizing a sub as a straitjacket does. You can even tie the arms parallel to the body. But instead of enclosing the torso in a layer of leather, there are just harness straps leave all the important parts like the nipples, ass and junk fully exposed. A skilled flogging top might be able to hit the shoulder blades between the harness’ leather belts. Each roller buckle strap on the sleeves to runs through a D-ring, providing enough anchorage points to fetter the sub down tightly for example to keep him from moving too much when being exposed to wax play. Otherwise the hot wax might tarnish the leather.

Detail of the Harness and the Straps holdign the Bondage Sleeves in Place

Besides the play aspect, I like the aesthetic component of it. When being bound in a straitjacket, the entire torso is covered, hiding the leather uniform, rubber gear of body writing the sub is proudly displaying or forced to wear. This limited coverage is also great for outdoor play in the summer or street fairs like Dore Alley, Folsom (Europe) or pride marches when a straitjacket over gear might cause the sub to overheat.

Being made out of a lot of leather and needing a lot of manual work to create the beautiful vector-quilted padding, the Vector Heavy Padded Bondage Sleeves are on the more expensive side of gear purchases at $879.95 but I am certain I will get my money’s worth once I add this piece of bondage gear to my collection.

Slap Stick

My set of Carved Kink Slap Sticks made out of Iroko, Purpleheart and Teak

Vendor: Carved Kink

Construction

The Slap Sticks are small, narrow wooden bats, almost like rulers. I experience them as a bottom at Inferno 46 last year and since I could not find them in any store, commissioned a set of three at Carved Kink this summer. A small Teak one measuring 15x200mm, a medium Purpleheart one in 20x250mm and a large Iroko with the dimensions of 25x300mm. Their thickness varies between 3mm and 5mm depending on the chosen wood and the size.

All edges and corners are rounded and the surface is first perfectly sanded and then oiled to not only prevent splinters from forming or causing unwanted cuts but to really bring out the grain and character of the wood. To keep the Slap Sticks this way, they should be rubbed off with a cloth soaked in olive oil every few months. At the bottom of each bat there is a countersunk bole through which a thin leather strap is threaded. The leather loop is short and thus just for storage and not for attaching the Slap Stick to the wrist.

Detail of the Slap Stick’s Finish

Playing with the Slap Stick

As the name already says, these mini-bats are made for slapping. Hold one of them between two or three fingers, take the other hand to pull is back and let the tip hit the bottom’s body. Their easiness to target and control predestinate the Slap Stick for CBT and TT to hit the nipple, individual balls or glans. But they are also great, bruising tools for general impact play. The targeted sensation comes close to a cane but since the stick lacks the flexibility of one it will leave the sub puzzled at first what has hit them. Other uses are body drumming or just tapping. Especially when tapping just one spot, an easily dismissed sensation will soon become an annoying and ultimately agonizing.

Detail of the Different Woods

The pain sensation depends on which area hits the body: The sides are a bit thuddy while the flat surface will create sting, the more intense the longer and narrower the stick is. Because the wood is so thin, the impact will make it oscillate adding a unique acoustic dimension to the spanking.

Handling the Slap Sticks properly takes some time and patience. As written in the last paragraph the Slap Sticks through the thinness are somewhat flexible and give in, but they are still thin wooden sticks which will break under too much force. They are made for delicate, targeted impact which develops over time instead of a brute-force spanking scene.

Detail of the Leather Loop for easier Storage

Being made out of wood and not having a sealed off surface, they are difficult to clean after a scene. I usually wipe mine off with a wet cloth and then use a sanitizing wipe. Never soak them in water because this will damage the wood! If you are doing heavier play, keep in mind that through the open pores of the wood, blood will leave stains on the bat.

The Slap Sticks are not yet listed on the website of Carved Kink. So if you are interested in one stick or a set, just send them an e-mail or DM them on Twitter.

Conclusion: Small, nifty and nasty impact toy for delicate play.
Pro Cons Where to get Price
Unique combination of impact sensation and sound Difficult to clean Carved Kink Around  £10 per Piece depending on the size and wood
Customizable Can break easily when used incorrectly
Very well made
Beautiful surface through exotic woods

Mill Strap

The London Tanners Mill Strap

Vendor: The London Tanners

Construction

As the name of the impact toy already implies, the basis is one long 4cm wide strap of 5.5mm thick leather. The overall length of the toy is 36cm of which the lower 13.5cm are folded together by another, narrower strap and two sleeve nuts forming the grip. The narrower strap does not wrap tightly around the broader one but forms a little loop which houses a d-ring for easy storage. The toy features some nice details like the saddlers’ crease both on the broad and the narrow strap and the embossed hallmark on one side of the broad strap. Regarding the color, you can choose between a classic black or tobacco brown which I bought.

Detail of the embossed Company’s Hallmark

While this sounds pretty standard for an impact implement, what sets the Mill Strap apart from other is the leather and finishing quality. The leather quality caused some discussion in my testee panel. It is top notch pure vegetable tanned British hide. This means there is no risk of allergy due to Chrome-6 for example which is important when doing heavy impact play since the bottom’s sweat can wash out the Chrome-6 and the tormented skin can easily reabsorb it. However, since the oak tanning process is very gentle, the hide does not get softened. So now after almost three months of regularly using it, my Mill Strap is not even close to being broken in. What helps to facilitate the breaking in process is kneading the loop. This does not make the Mill Strap a bad toy, just for a relatively long time, it performs more like a paddle than a strap. Furthermore, the oak used for tanning the leather gives it a distinct, strong smell which – in my case luckily – will fade away over time while some testees liked it very much.

Detail of the Strap forming the Grip and housing the D-Ring for easier Storage

The finish quality is one of the best out there. The surface is oiled and waxed for a super-smooth finish and the edges are burnished for no unintentional abrasions.

Playing with the Mill Strap

The Mill Strap delivers what the name promises: An easy to control, stingy impact toy. Since the strap is flexible, it can even be used for warm-up when carefully and lightly tapping the bottom’s cheeks. While the strap is long enough to hit both cheeks, due to the thick leather’s weight this strap is rather loop-heavy. Because of that I would recommend targeting single cheeks.

As written above it takes some time to break the strap to get the slapping effect of this kind of toys. Once you have reached that point, the sensation of thick upper half back lashing turns the medium sting into an intense one. Also, the cracking sound of slappers and straps then appears, adding another sensual dimension to the impact play.

Detail of the Strap’s Loop with the Saddlers‘ Crease on both Sides

To my surprise, the Mill Strap does not color as much as I did expect of such toy. It will redden the skin quickly but not as much as a paddle and the red will quickly fade. Also none of my testees managed to produce bruises with it. While naturally this depends on the sub’s body, the Mill Strap seems to be a good implement for sessions which should not leave lasting marks.

If you prefer a little bit of thud, simply turn the toy around and hit the sub with the grip. The stiffness of four layers of tightly folded leather will still sting but the sheer weight will add some thud, giving the Mill Strap even some bruiser potential. Especially when the strap is broken in, flinging the grip forward will develop movement momentum, allowing to hit the sub with little force. Especially when doing this more or less uncontrolled hitting, the d-ring hitting the bottok might become a problem – or an appreciated backlash.

Conclusion: Premium stingy impact implement which take a long time to get broken in.

Oxballs Pig-Hole FF

The Oxballs Pig-Hole FF

It’s here! It is finally here! The Oxballs Pig-Hole FF! When I launched ToyTorture.com almost exactly 6 years ago, I would have never dreamed that the most anticipated toy of the year would be an anal toy. I actually could not trace back when Oxballs first talked about a new, larger Pig-Hole on Twitter. The craze at my end started in January when Oxballs tweeted that the Pig-Hole was in the 3D printer and would hit the store some weeks later. Since this initial tweet I have gotten 350 (!) e-mails, Twitter DMs, Tumblr, Recon or PlanetRomeo messages asking when it would hit the stores and when I would review it. Over 150 people asked a second time and 4 (!) send me no less than 5 messages when they could finally stuff their butt with it. Never before had I such an interest in a toy. And here it finally is!

Size Comparison of the Oxballs Pig-Hole FF

I loved the original Pig-Hole XXL and enjoying getting double-fisted I am pretty sure that the Pig-Hole FF will not disappoint me. They made some design changes which just looking at pictures make sense to me; for example proportionally enlarging the base would have made the toy look cartoonish.

Like its smaller Brothers the Pig-Hole FF is Textured inside

Now, about a week since Oxballs launched the toy, I have already gotten more than three dozen messages asking me when I will share my two cents about this toy. I am not sure when I will the toy yet. But if anybody wants to give me a review sample, I’d like it in red to have it in a different color than my Pig-Hole XXL. For those of you who can’t wait for my verdict, you can buy the Pig-Hole FF at Mr S Leather for $124.95.

And to those asking about the event larger Pig-Hole MAX which Oxballs hinted the past months: They already tweeted about toying around with the designs of an even larger Pig-Hole. You just have to stretch your patient a bit. And looking at the proportions of the Pig-Hole FF, being good at stretching will be necessary for the Pig-Hole MAX 😉

 

Gripz Paddle

Vendor: Ballistic Metal

The Ballistic Gripz Paddle

Construction

The Gripz Paddle is made out of 6mm thick brushed aluminum. The edges are well rounded so there are no sharp ridges. It comes in two sizes with the smaller one being about 300mm long and the larger one 450mm of which 160mm are for handle which tappers out of the body. It is covered in a vinyl sheath which you can either leave on the handle for a better grip or take it off to take advantage of the hole at the bottom for better storage or threading a leather loop through it. The paddle I have been sent for reviewing is kind of a hybrid version because it is a large one cut down to a two-patch version.

Detail of the Handle and the Vinyl Cover

The hitting surface is 87mm wide and depending on size 140mm resp. 290mm long. On both sides of the paddle’s head 66x66mm squares are milled and black rubber pads with a pyramid texture are glued into them. The small version has two patches, the larger three.

For a small fee Ballistic Metal offers personalization through engraving on all their aluminum toys. So you can add name your paddle like a sword or simply have your nickname added so you can identify your toys in a play party.

Detail of the Gripz Rubber Pads with a Pyramid Texture

Playing with the Gripz Paddle

Through the shape and size, the Gripz is a very traditional spanking paddle. The smaller one is perfect for targeting individual cheeks and still just nimble enough for bastinado while the larger one has the right size for hitting the entire ass, thighs or even belly spanking. Through the thickness the aluminum will not give in a bit so the entire kinetic energy of the impact is transformed into pain making the Gripz a stingy toy – like all aluminum paddles. But the rubber pads make it extra nasty. The rubber itself adds even more sting, taking away all of the little thud aluminum impact toys have due their weight. For extra meanness, shift the paddle a bit in the impact moment so it travels over the skin to add a burning abrasive sensation. Due to this the Gripz colors the sub more quickly than other aluminum paddles. Through the pyramids’ “spikey” imprint and abrasion the first color is a bright red which darkens quickly and eventually turns into bruises, depending on the impact force. The paddle is light enough not to pose a threat on well-padded body areas, but when hitting delicate areas like foot soles, caution is advisable in order not to break bones.

An E-Stim Lead attached to the Paddle

The small version is surprisingly well balanced. When I had the chance to try out the larger one from a friend it was like all aluminum paddles head heavy. But since this brute is not made for an hour-long scene, this does not really matter.

Beyond impact play, the rough texture of the pads make the Gripz a fun toys for sensation play. Let it lightly travel over the body for tickling and teasing the sub or rub it over forcefully for a burning sensation. This is especially agonizing at the nipples or the glans. For sensation play, I found the smaller version easier to use because it is more nimble.

Detail of a Custom Engravement

To add a sensation, you can take advantage of the material properties of aluminum. First, it easily takes on temperature. But since the rubber patches are glued to the aluminum, I would not recommend to put it into the freezer to cool it down or to heat the at all Gripz. For cooling down, use cooling pads for a gentle, controlled cooling and enjoy your sub squirming when cold aluminum hits the warm-spanked skin. Aluminum also conducts electricity so I tape a 4mm banana plug lead to the handle, attach the counter-electrode to the balls and choose a program with continuous output on the power box. For safety reasons, the counter electrodes and the impact area must be below the waist! Introducing the paddle to e-stim play is usually very surprising to the sub but since you have to deal with leads dangling between you, the sub and the power box, it is not for long, forceful scenes.

Conclusion: The meanest, fastest coloring aluminum paddle in my collection.
Pro Cons Where to get Price
Extra stingy and abrasive sensation Ballistic Metal Small $79.95

Large $89.95

SquarePeg Slink

The Entire Slink Range From Left to Right: Slink, Slink Ripple, Slink Spike and Slink Vortex

I do not only like to play with toys and ultimately review them, but I am also a bit of a toy collector, trying to accumulate iconic or original sex tools. In this category falls the SquarePeg Slink.

Square Peg was one of the – if not THE – first company which made depth toys out of platinum silicone which trough its smooth surface and right degree of flexibility is perfect for depth play. They started out with their a bit crude look Slither and over 10 years ago added the more technically Depth Probes. In 2011 they combined the two toys, added a dash of butt plug and the Slink emerged. Since then the Slink has become one of the most iconic and widely used anal toys for going deep. Because I got so many reader questions which toys for depth play to get, I reviewed the Slink and the Depth Probe this June. However, while I own the Depth Probe, the Slink was just a loan from my dear friend Teck Pup and now I want one of my own.

A few years ago, this was an easy decision: You just had to choose between SuperSoft Bronze and Graphite (though for “iconic” reasons you obviously choose the Bronze ;)). In 2015 SquarePeg introduced the Ripples versions of the Slink. A year later the Slink Spike. And two years later the Vortex arrived at the party. Which one should I get?

This question brings me to why I started ToyTorture.com 6 years ago: When facing the question which Slink to get, I searched the web for reviews of the different versions. How do the different textures feel? How do they impact how easy the toy goes deeper? Makes the textures’ added grip them easier to control? Sadly, there was nothing and with prices between $69 and $369 they are on the more expensive side of anal toys. So despite the price being absolutely fair for the quality, buying an unsatisfying toy will be extra annoying. For questions like this and to minimize the risk of buying a wrong toy, I started ToyTorture.com to give at least some orientation when looking for a toy for a specific fantasy, describing how they feel, perform and what can be done with them.

So, where does this leave me? I fear, I have to get at least three textures and compare them in a review some time the future. So, for variety reasons, my Slink wish list would probably be:

Small Smooth Slink SuperSoft Bronze

Medium Rippled Slink SuperSoft Bronze

Vortex Slink SuperSoft Graphite

If you are interested in testing out SquarePeg toys in general or the Slink in particular, you can get them at Mr S Leather in the USA or Regulation which has the largest selection in the EU.

 

 

 

XXXCalibur & Dragon

Toy Properties

Form: Dildo
Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: Natural Tan, Deep Brown, Black & Custom
Firmness: Soft to Medium, custom degrees possible
Lube: Water, Oil
Cleaning: Soaking in hot water with dish-soap than use sanitizer.
Safer Sex: Clean and sanitize it thoroughly
Storage: Store in a well-ventilated place not touching other toys to prevent damage.

Vendor: Mr Hankey’s

About two years ago a new company manufacturing high quality silicone anal toys emerged: Mr Hankey. Quickly I got reader questions if I knew the company and what I thought about their products. So I got in touch with them and they were so kind to send me two of the designs I have been asked the most about: The XXXCalibur and the Dragon.

Construction

Like most top notch anal toys, all Mr Hankey toys are made out of platinum silicone. The “platinum” refers to 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, platinum silicone 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. As always with silicone toys, never use them with silicone lube because it can damage the toy.

The Mr Hankey Dragon and XXXCalibur

Off the rack Mr Hankey offers two firmnesses: Medium and 75% firm. The medium gives the texture presence without preventing them to give in while the 75% firm is squishy but still strong enough that even a larger and thinner toy like the XXXCalibur stands erect on its own. Though as always the rule applies: The thicker a toy, the harder it will feel. You can now ask for custom firmness degrees which might be useful for extreme long depth toys to get around all the bends or to make the texture on anthropomorphic toys extra intense.

As standard, Mr Hankey offers three classic colors: Natural Tan, Brown and classic black. For a surcharge you can get all kinds of extravagant colors like I got on my Dragon: A nice turquoise with ruby accents. Just follow their Twitter (with most straight NSFW content!) where once in a while they share pictures of their newest creations.

Detail of the Vac-U-Lock Hole on the Dragon

A nice additional feature is the Vac-U-Lock hole at the bottom. With this hole you can attach the dildo to fuck machines or strap-on-harnesses who feature a Vac-U-Lock plug. Mr Hankey also offers a Handle Attachment for $24.95 for easier manually guided penetration. When washing the toy, make sure that the Vac-U-Lock hole is completely dry before storing it! Otherwise mole might start to appear.

The shape of the XXXCalibur roughly resembles an uncut dick. The tip is modeled after a long-drawn glans which just slightly peaks out of the foreskin. It tappers a bit again before the oval shaft extends to its full diameter. The shaft is lightly texture with veins which tease a novice the sphincter just a little bit but are mostly not noticeable for real ass pigs. At the bottom there are two large balls which allow for a good grip for the top.

The Dragon on the other hand sets the mood for the toy right from the tip: While it also features a glans, it is anthropomorphically shaped with rugged ridges which almost look scale like. From the glans all the way to the base the runs a band of deep, ridged scales at the front and the back of the shaft. The sides between the scales is lightly textured with a snake skin pattern. The roughness of the Dragon is underlines by the fact that the shaft’s maximum diameter  comes just behind the glans so there is not much resting time after conquering the challenging glans.

Toy Size Overall Length Insertable Length Glans Rim Diameter Max Diameter
XXXCalibur Medium/Large 368mm 290mm 54mm 67mm
Large/Extra Large 394mm 318mm 59mm 75mm

Extra Large 349mm 305mm 80mm 89mm
XXXLarge 400mm 356mm 95mm 103mm

Detail of the Draon’s Texture

Playing with the XXXCalibur & Dragon

Through the anatomic shape and the light texture the XXXCalibur is a good curious-beginners’ and easy-play toy. For some of my testees it actually became their everyday dildo because in the 75% firmness it felt like a human dick to them.

Beyond smooth riding, the XXXCalibur  – especially in the larger site – is a good depth training toy. Even in 75% firmness it has enough stability to be easily controlled yet is flexible enough to go around bends. When training on your own, it is firm enough to stand up during careful fucking so you can focus on controlling the pressure applied to the second sphincter. The long-drawn glans is perfect for training the second sphincter to open up. Through the little tapper between the glans and the shaft it can actually close again once inserted so you can do the same “plug fucking” you do with the anus when training up for taking a fist.

The Dragon is almost the direct opposite of the XXXCalibur. Being so heavily textured right from the beginning, it is hard to take, even for more experience ass pigs. So especially when not riding it yourself but if a top pushes it in, be extra careful. But the rugged glans is great for teasing the ass lips and the sphincter without fully pushing in. Just messaging the sensitive tissue with the ridges is enough to drive some bottoms made.

Detail of the XXXCalibur’s Long-Drawn Glans and Light Texture

Once inserted the scale bands on the top and bottom of the shaft tease and torment the sensitive sphincter even when turned lightly. The deep textures gives the otherwise relatively circular shaft an oval shape. Because of that, every turn also induces a stretching sensation. What is really evil is cumming while riding the toy and then having to pull it out. The again tightened up sphincter will face a challenge with the deep ridge under the glans rim.
