ToyTorture.com is now 6 years old and in this time I think I have gained some insight into the toy scene and what my readers are interested in. But sometimes, a toy comes along which provokes a reaction I did not anticipate. The Oxballs Ass Blaster is one of these toys. I have bought this toy to make a fantasy of mine come true and never thought I would review it. But the mandatory “Hey look, I have gotten a new toy”-post on Tumblr actually became the third popular of all my Tumblr posts. Since then every few weeks a message dropped into my inbox when I would be reviewing the Ass Blaster. So here it is, even thought there is not that much to “review”.

The Oxballs Ass Blaster

Conclusive,a word on the pictures for this review: Despite loving high quality platinum siliconeas a anal toy material, it is a nightmare to take pictures of! It attracts dustand fuzz the moment is leaves the water to clean the toy. Even microfiber dryingcloths or anti-static spray does not help. So, if anyone reading this has an ideahow to take nice pictures of silicone toys, please get in touch. To the other,please be gentle when judging the pictures.

The Plug of the Oxball Ass Blaster

Construction

The Ass Blaster is a two-part toy consisting off a funnel and a plug. The funnel has an opening diameter of 135mm and is approx. 120mm high. On one side of the funnel has a grip which can be used to attach it to a bondage harness in order to keep it upright. To the funnel’s nozzle a flexible  spout is attached which is approx. 130mm high when bend to a 90° angle. The funnel has a capacity of roughly 600ml and the spout an additional 100ml. The max. flow rate is about 4,000ml per minute which adds up to allowing two people with a strong piss stream to fill the funnel simultaneously without problems – if the bottom is receptive enough. At the bottom of the funnel there is a filter screen to keep solid objects from clogging the spout or nozzle.

The plug
comes in three sizes and is available in black and red. It has a roughly the shape
of a mortar bomb with a tapered head which due to the tunnel in the middle has
a rather dull tip. The three fins at the end are large and wide to allow
handling the Ass Blaster even with lubey fingers and to keep it from getting
sucked into a greedy ass even during long scenes. A nice touch is the caption A
S S on the outside of the fins. A lot of material has been used on the entire
toy thus the walls are rather thick. This makes it almost impossible for the
bottom to shut the flow with his ass.

Size Overall Lenght Insertable Length Neck Diameter Largest Diameter
Small 75mm 55mm 32mm 48mm
Medium 10mm 75mm 45mm 60mm
Large 125mm 95mm 50mm 75mm

The Ass Blaster’s Funnel

Playing with the Ass Blaster

The Ass
Blaster is kind of a one purpose toy: To turn the bottom’s ass into a urinal. A
friend of mine owns the small plug and has a bottom with a really large mouth
who can swallow the plug. Add a bit of tape to that and voila. But is has to be
noted that through the large size it will quickly tire out the sub’s jaw.

Unlike theother Oxballs piss toys (like the Recycler which I reviewed earlier this year,the Urinal Piss Gag or the Flush-Plug) the large opening which allows for two peopleto use it simultaneously, the large liquid filling quantity and high flow rateactually make this toy party urinal equipment. The piss flow straight into the rectumwhich distinguished the Ass Blaster from the Pig-Hole. Through the barrel shapeof the hollow plug a lot of piss does not flow into the bottom but stays insidethe plug. However, the Pig-Hole is a useful toy in combination with the AssBlaster. Through the dull tip the plug is actually more for the anal savvybottom. But if he is that trained, the actually size is rather small. While theplug might not fall out of his ass, the piss can easily leak. To prevent thisto a certain degree, simply put a Pig-Hole into the bottom’s ass and plug itwith an Ass Blaster.

Detail of the Ass Blaster’s Fin

Most rectums can only take about 500ml. While this can be trained over time, backflow or leakage at some point cannot be prevented. To facilitate the piss flow behind the inner sphincter and into the colon, the bottom should push his ass out in doggy position and lay down flat with his torso.

Oxballs Shockballs

The Oxballs Shockball

Vendor: Ballistic Metal

Construction

Like all ball crushers the Shockballs has two plates measuring 189x129mm. The lower one is made out of 6mm thick black acrylic, the top one out of 5.5mm thick clear acrylic. In the upper half, there is a hole in each plate. The lower one of the entire junk, the upper one for just the dick. Both holes are nicely rounded and flawlessly deburred so there will be no unintended pain or injuries. To fit most dick and ball sizes, the Shockballs comes in three hole sizes: 31.7mm & 44.5mm, 38mm & 51mm and 44.5mm & 57.5mm which I have bought.

The plates are connected by a clear acrylic hinge at the top. At the bottom there are two M5 screws for pressing the top plate down on the balls using wings nuts. On the screws there are also nuts as an adjustable compression limiter.

Detail of the Electrodes‘ Upsight with the 4mm Sockets

Below the holes there are two aluminums clamps screwed onto the clear acrylic using three sleeve nuts. The nuts’ round-head are the contact points of the electrodes. To connect the electrode with the power box, there are 4mm holes to fit banana plugs drilled into the bottom of the clamps.

Playing with the Shockballs

The hinge is a blessing and a cruse: Usually with ball crushers your fiddle with two or even three pieces, always risking to pinch some skin. This won’t happen with the Shockballs. But: If the sub already has a full-grown boner it is almost impossible to get the dick through the designated hole so the crusher can’t be closed again. The hinge’s height also limits maximum squeeze to 18mm (and a minimum of 42mm). While that is enough for a strong compression feeling, it won’t cater to the total nut pain pigs who want their balls compressed paper thin.

Detail of the Electrodes‘ Contact Areas

So much for the bad news. The good news is: The toy as an awful lot of fun to play with. While yes, putting it on with a hard dick, especially larger ones, not having to deal with shifting, getting wedged plates made me use the Shockballs way more often than my other ball crushers – even just for crushing. On a more personal note, I also like the industrial look of the brushed aluminum clamps compared to the poles being on the base plate on other e-stim ball crushers which then feature clear top plates. Tough some testees did not like the somewhat obstructed the view on the compressed sack.

The e-stim sensation is generally starts out mostly smooth. But since there are only three contact points it quickly can be turned stingy when the intensity is increased. Since the contact area and mass on both poles is almost identical, the sensation is felt on both poles when connected to one channel of the power box. The most interesting/ deviant stimulation is putting a mass-rich counter pole (everything up from the E-Stim Systems Torpedo Large like the Stuffer or [X]L Black Collection) inside the sub so the stimulation is only felt at the balls. Then choose a program which alternates between the two channels (like HiFreq on the Erostok ET232) so the agony constantly jumps from one side to the other.

Detail of the Screws to Tighten the Crusher

It is general a good idea to put a flexible cockring around junk’s base to keep the balls from retracting back into the body. If a sub has smaller/ tighter balls, I also recommend to stretch his nuts with one of the many flexible cock rings/ ball stretchers from Oxballs. This way they won’t be squeeze through the dick or junk hole (whichever has more slack). If you are really mean, you use the Zapp or Volt to electrify also the ball’s neck.

Conclusion: Nicely looking, easy to handle e-stim ball stretcher – if the dick is soft.

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.

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.

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.

Detail of the Slink’s tappered End and Base

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.

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.

Detail of the Piss Lock with the T-Connector

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.

Toy Prototype: Whale Penis Flogger

ToyTorture.com is not only about reviewing toys. On a regular basis small toy makers approach me and ask for advice on market research and product design. Since clever, ingenious toy design intrigues me, I am always excited and happy to bring a new means of perversion into the world.

During the holiday season last year Jonas from Tromsø in Norway contacted me. His primary kink is impact play and in the long dark winters he taught himself how to make floggers. Like his father and grandfather he is working in fishery. After mastering the “traditional” hides like bull or elk, he quite successfully started experimenting with hides from his daytime job, mostly classic aquatic leathers like shark or ray. In October he got his hands on a truly unique hide and started turning it into a flogger which he was very eager to show me. Since he was in Berlin for BLF Easter, we met for a coffee at Romeo&Romeo today. I have seen many extravagant toys and unique designs, but this one blew my mind.

The Whale Penis Hide Tails before Stroking them

Knowing of his passion for exotic hides, a friend from the Norwegian College of Fishery Science gave Jonas a hide of a whale penis and he turned it into flogger tails. When I first saw the flogger, it looked weird. It had a standard sized grip but only six thin and short tails. I know this kind of tails from pocket floggers I sometimes use in spanking scenes. But they have smaller grips for better handling. The tails’ leather is very soft and flowing, almost like Deer hide and has a smooth, slightly grained surface. The magic start when you start stroking the tails: They quickly grow in length and width, get heavier and after a minute of caressing and jerking a full-sized flogger was lying on the table! What first was a light warm-up toy for small areas grew to a big, heavy thudder. This effect is the reason why there are only six tails. He experimented with eight or even twelve, but as soon as they started growing, the knot holding them together burst.

Obviously, this toy has great potential. It is small enough to fit in a pocket and is easy to carry around. The small tails work great for a close-up, intimate warm-up. Once you are done, simply stroke the tails or expose them to vibration to make them grow and continue the scene with full-size flogger.

After Stroking them, the Tails became long, thick, wide and heavy

As excited I am to get to call one of these floggers my own, Jonas still has some major problems to work out. First, there is the right amount of stroking. If you overdo it, the tails get hard as a rock and you either have to use it as a paddle, wait at least half an hour or put them into ice-water to make them soft again. Especially when using the ice-water, it takes a lot of rubbing to make them grow again. The next issue is the grip balance. It is either too small and too light to control the big thudder or cartoonishly large for the small, short tails. Until now, he only managed to make round-cut tail-ends. He experimented with angle-cut but if you hit the sub too hard with them, sometimes the tips squirt, soiling the sub’s back. Last but not least, ethically sourcing the hide is a big issue. But Jonas is determined to work out these kinks and bring this amazing product to the market soon. He is already experimenting with some other exotic hides. He showed me a video of an electric eel hide flogger he is hoping to turn into a toy, combining e-stim and impact play. So I am very certain we will hear a lot from this talented young man in the near future.

Thickwall Cylinders Pumping Toys

Thickwall Cylinder Heavy Duty Pump & Sophisticated Cylinders

Vendor: Thickwall Cylinders

Last fall I reviewed some basic cylinders and a beginner’s pump. This led to many reader questions about toys for different kinds of scenes. So I got in touch with Thickwall Cylinders which manufacture a wide range of different cylinders for the most discriminating pumping aficionado to answer most of these questions.

Heavy Duty Pump

The most often asked question was if there are more heavy duty pumps out there. While I like a small, plastic pump for traveling, it is a bit frail especially for group or messy scenes. I had people stepping on the pump twice accidently and nothing broke. Being made out of chromed brass it has a quality feel and rests securely even in somewhat lubey hands. It would even be better is the grip was textured for an even more secure grip. To release the vacuum there is a lever just below the intake.

Thickwall Cylinder Heavy Duty Pump with Gauge

Above the intake is a rotatable gauge is mounted which measures the vacuum in Torr (inches Hg). Especially for pump novices who cannot “feel” the vacuums intensity precisely yet, I highly recommend getting a pump with a gauge. In order to prevent injuries or lasting adverse effects, you should not pump above 6 inches Hg over extended periods of time. Short spikes of 10 inches Hg are ok but should not be the rule. The gauge helps you to keep track of the vacuum’s intensity. Compare to the more simple plastic pumps the travel of this pump’s piston is longer so it takes less strokes to reach the same vacuum level. At the same time the thicker, heavier handles help to control the travel more precisely so careful pumping is also possible.

However, the solid design comes with a drawback: Just the pump alone weights just under 840g which is quite heavy. And with measuring 31cm diagonally it is not compact either.

The pump comes with a 75cm long clear silicone hose and a replacement pump connector.

Cylinder Construction

All cylinders made by Thickwall are made out of a clear, high quality acrylic. Unlike the cylinders I review in November these ones even have a clear top so the dick or anus can be seen well from all angles. Into this top the connector is mounted through which the hose connects the cylinder with the pump.

The Thickwall Cylinder Two-Stage Cylinder

All cylinders are hand-made and finished in the UK so they are flawlessly transparent. But even the best acrylic scratches quite easily even when you are careful. So to answer a reader’s question: No, I do not know a manufacturer who makes cylinders which maintain the nice out-of-the-box look even after many scenes. While on their website they offer a lot of standard sizes, Thickall Cylinders is open for custom measurements. This is quite important because for a pleasurable pumping experience, a having a correctly measured cylinder is important. I made the mistake of been too optimistic with my two-stage cylinder.

All cylinders come with a small leaflet which explain how to pump and into which problem one might run. Especially for people starting with pump these are great pieces of advice.

Playing with the different Cylinders

In my November review I talked about the basic technicalities of pumping which naturally also apply for these cylinders. So let’s take a look at the new cylinder types I am reviewing today.

Two-Stage Cylinder

A two-stage cylinder looks like a huge cock cylinder but with a bottom onto which a 2.5cm short neck with a flange is attached. Through this neck you insert your balls and penis. The internal diameter of the neck should be slightly larger then your metal cockring.

The effect of this cylinder is a bit more visual then tactile. There is still the draft on the penis but through the larger diameter the vacuum increases slower and this is felt less intensely. Since there are not that many nerve endings in the ball’s skin the tug is felt very gently. But you can still see the dick and especially the balls grow. After two or three sets of 15 minutes of vacuum the scrotum will swell to a degree of a small saline infusion. If you can manage to get the package out of the cylinder again (which can be a bit of a challenge depending on the volume growth), playing with massive nuts is quite fun. They will decrease in size quicker then a saline infusion. But the process can be slowed down when using TPR cockrings around the balls and the penis root.

Detail of the Rosebud Cylinder’s Connector

Rosebud Cylinder

Thickwall’s Rosebud cylinder is quite different then the one I tested in November. First there are is the choice of different rod diameters. This is important for all the ass pigs. If your ass is well trained or you want to use the cylinder in the middle of a fisting scene when the sphincter is already smooth, soft and loose, a thin rod won’t seal the sphincter and thus there won’t be a vacuum seal. But the rod also must not be too thick. During the pumping process the cylinder “settles” and thus has some lever action inside the sphincter which can feel uncomfortable if the sphincter is stretched to the max already.

The second difference is the overall shorter cylinder. This leads to a quicker, more intense vacuum, so pump more carefully. More important for the most ass pumpers is the visual aspect. A well trained pumper’s anus can fill almost the entire cylinder which makes for a stunning visual effect.

The thicker rod leads to a large increase of weight. It is not uncommon that a loose, puffy hole can grip the rod anymore and the cylinder falls out. So when pumping for yourself, do not do it in the sling but in the bed or onto the floor where the ground provides some support.

The Thickwall Cylinder Double Ended Cylinder

Double Ended Cylinder

I call this cylinder the “buddy cylinder”. It has two open ends with flanges for secure and comfortable usage and the connector in the middle. Both play partners insert they dick and one (or a “neutral” top) starts pumping. Seeing both dicks swell and feeling them eventually meet is quite hot. A friend of mine is a docking fetishist (extending ones foreskin over the other ones glans) and this toy triggers his fantasy a bit.

Though one testing panel member top uses this kind of cylinder in D/s scenes with two subs where as soon as one sub says he is ready increases the vacuum, I am not really a fan of this kind of play. Too quick pumping can have too many adverse effects so I see this cylinder as a mutual pleasure toy. However if the top is experienced with pumping and knows where he can push, it might work well in a D/s setting.

The Water Trap

Water Trap

This small accessory is there to protect the pump which can get damaged when you pump water into the piston. It is essential for pumping when soaking in the bath tub (the softening effect of water onto skin and tissue makes the dick and balls swell more easily) where there is always a chance of accidently sucking in some water.

Some people prefer to pump with water. They fill the cylinder with water, stick their dick inside and start pumping. Water distributes the draft more evenly and smoothly then air so it is a bit more gently pumping. Because of the large amount of water being sucked into the trap, I highly recommend emptying is after each stroke!

Bad Dragon Dildos

From left to Right: Terra, Scorn and Nova

Vendor: Bad Dragon

Sometimes a review encourages more reader questions than I hope it would answered. This was the case almost a year ago when I published my review of three Bad Dragon toys. In the first months I was inundated with e-mails, DMs and messages on Recon and PlanetRomeo asking my opinion on different models, colors, etc. So I got in touch with the guys at Bad Dragon and asked if they would be kind enough to supply me with the three most often inquired about dildos in sizes my fist-savvy testee panel would be interested in. A few weeks later a parcel with an XL Nova, an XL Terra and an L Scorn arrived at my place.

Now, a few months later, they have been thoroughly tested. And since the review is so eagerly anticipated by many readers, I find it fitting to be the first one after my little summer break.

Material

In the past two years silicone has become my personal material of choice when it comes to anal toys. Sadly silicone is a bit difficult to handle so not many toy manufacturers use it to make anal toys. Bad Dragon has been making silicon Dildos since 2008 so they really know what they are doing especially when it comes to their elaborate color designs which getting them right is a challenge of its own. If you want to snatch a little bargain and can live with a little flaw, take a look at their “Flop” section where they sell not-perfect toys with a discount.

Every Bad Dragon anal toy is made out of Platinum silicone. It is called this way because platinum is the catalyst used in making the silicone. Unlike other catalysts like tin, platinum makes the silicone withstand acid and heat.

Detail of the Color Options and Effects of Bad Dragon Toys

Silicone is an awesome material for anal toys. Its surface is perfectly smooth which makes taking the toy a bit easier than “rougher” materials. Even more important is the big advantage when it comes to cleaning. Since the silicone is non-porous on a microscopic level bacteria have a hard time to establish themselves. Being resistant to almost everything and heat Bad Dragon toys are best cleaned in hot water with dish-soap or vinegar-based cleaner and then sprayed with a sanitizer. If you want to be completely sure, you can even autoclave them. Since you really and thoroughly can get them clean and sterile they are perfect to be used on multiple partners without having to fear disease transmission – if cleaned properly between usages.

The smoothness comes with a bit of a price though: Especially highly viscose lubes tend run down so I would recommend slicker lubes like Elbow Grease H2O Thick Gel. Since the silicone oil in silicone or hybrid lubes will disintegrate the silicone of the toy, only use water or oil based lube with Bad Dragon toys!

Depending on your personal taste and experience choosing the right firmness is important. Platinum silicone will never be as firm as rubber or vinyl can be. So if you like to torment your ass with brutally forcing toys in (not that I would recommend this kind of play for health and safety reasons…) silicone toys might not be for you. For all the other people Bad Dragon offers three degrees of firmness: Soft, medium and firm, though their XL toys only come in soft and medium (which personally I find a bit of a shame). When ordering for the first time, I recommend ordering their firmness sample package in advance so you get a rough idea how the toy will feel. Though when choosing the firmness, keep in mind: The larger/ ticker a toy, the firmer it will feel. Also: The softer a toys, the easier it will collapse when riding it. I highly recommend the split firmness with a hard base. It gives the toy a firmer stand and makes it easier to grip so it improves the play alone and when a top shoves it up your ass.

A less practical but more aesthetical decision is choosing the right color of the toy. Silicone has the advantage of being easily colorized and usually doesn’t discolor over time. So Bad Dragon – in a time where most anal toys where solid black, red or blue – took toy coloring to an entire new level. Their new website features a configuration tool which lets you play around with almost infinite color and effect combinations. Furthermore each month and for special events like Pride or Halloween they introduce unique color patters which are available for a limited time.

Detail of Nova’s Suction Cup

Choosing the right Bad Dragon

Bad Dragon is famous for getting the inspiration for their toys from fantasy creatures, mostly dragons but also werewolves or chimeras for example. So they offer vide variety of shapes, textures, length and diameters (currently 61 different models).

When deciding which dildo to get keeping in mind which diameter you can currently take is a good starting point. Since the designs are proportionally scaled up from S to XL, you have to be also depth experienced to take the full maximum diameter which usually sits right above the base in form of a knot.  When browsing through the different models keep in mind: The softer the material the easier it will be to take (see above). The more textured, the harder it will be to take (see below). But the texture is also the fun part: The sphincter is an area with a high concentration of nerve endings so the texture (more or less) gently teases them, making textured toys more interesting. The heavier the texture, the quicker the ass will be worn out so save heav

ily textured toys for the end of the scene. Putting them at the end has the advantage of the sphincter (hopefully) being relaxed and loose. Riding heavily textured toys too vigorously with a tight sphincter can lead to injuries!

Each dildo can be outfitted with two special features: The suction cup and the cum tube. Unlike suction cups on other toys where a separate cup is attached to the base of the toy, Bad Dragon’s suction cup is integrated into the toy’s base. This not only looks nicer but increases the size of the cup and thus the suction. Also the cup won’t come off when often and heavily used, like I had with other dildos. The suction is so strong that even the large and heavy toys stick to dry, smooth perpendicular surfaces and still stick when being ridden vigorously.

Detail of the Texture of the Nova

The cum tube is a tube in the middle of the toy attached to a syringe through which water-based (cum) lube (like the one from Bad Dragon) can be shot, simulation an ejaculation. Since the last review the spilt opinion of my testee panel has not changed: Some loved the feeling of a liquid splashing inside their colon. For some testees and me, it didn’t do much. And since the cum tube makes the toys more difficult to clean, I went without the cum tube.

Playing with the Toys

Terra the Amazon Wyvern XL Soft Shaft

When wanting to venture into the realm of more textured toys, the Terra is probably a good starting point. With the gently tapered glans the Terra is quite easy to take. Two gently risen scales allow for some sphincter stimulation until the diameter increases for the knot. The ridge at the back of the knot is a bit rugged but not too extreme. Since there is only one textures area at a specific height level (either both sides or the back) slow teasing play is interesting with this dildo because different areas of the sphincter get stimulated at different depth levels.

Detail of the Nova’s Texture

Nova the Breeder XL Medium Shaft

I would consider the Nova a toy for the more experienced ass players. The glans is a bit duller than the Terra’s and its rim is equipped with dull bumps so it is a bit more of a challenge. The shaft is textured with three deep ridges with a steep slope at the rim. They make the Nova an equally interesting and challenging toy for fucking: Taking it is somewhat easy because the ridges gently open the hole up. The steep slopes however really challenge the sphincter when pulling the Nova out. Running down from below the glans’ frenulum all down to the base is a ribbon is rather highly raised bumps. Three testees of mine had the perfect anatomy for these bumps running over their prostate, driving them insane when getting fucked with the toy.

Scorn the Wyvern L Firm Shaft

Detail of the Scorn’s Texture

The Scorn is unlike the two previous toys. The most noticeable difference is that the base is perpendicular to the head. Also, the dildos is short and thick. The glans takes up approximately a quarter of the entire length and steeply increases in diameter. Below the glans the diameter increase again quickly making this a toy for more experienced power player. Adding to this categorization is the texturing: From the frenulum down to the base run deep ridges, the rest of the shaft is textured with veins and bumps. Since the toy is curved almost a quarter of a circle, taking it takes some navigation and practice even for depth experienced fistees. Because the L is already rather large and you can get it in the firmest silicone, this toy will produce the most “stuffed” feeling and the texture is felt the most intense of all the Bad Dragon toys I own.

ToyTorture’s Wishlist #3: HML Leather Straitjacket

The HML Fetish Leather Straitjacket

Straitjackets were among the first professional bondage tools  which made the step from pervertable into a pure kink item. In his first catalogue from 1977 Maurice Addison (founder of Fetters) already sold a leather straitjacket. While medical straitjackets out of canvas like Posey (or the Max Cita models which are actually made for BDSM) are favored by some for their authenticity and through the flexibility of the canvas even tighter bondage experience, the leather straitjacket remains a classic and desiderate for many bondage enthusiasts.

Detail of the Quilted Elbow Padding

The reason for that is manifold. First there is the material. For many people through restraints and hoods leather is connected to BDSM. The smell and sensation of the material touching the skin is enough to get a fetishist aroused. Additionally the sheer weight of a leather lined jacket with straps and solid D-rings adds another level to the bondage sensation. Being made for play, leather straitjackets can have features like nipple flaps, cockrings, plug harnesses or D-rings for attaching the sub to bondage furniture. Last but not least straitjackets are some of the most complex pieces of leather bondage to manufacture. Functional and aesthetical finesses like padding or quilting increase the amount of work that goes into every single piece making them almost a piece of art but definetly a piece of craftsmanship.

Detail of the Straps to Tighten and Adjust the Straitjacket

For that reason straitjackets next to sleepsacks tend to be the single most expensive piece of bondage gear most people ever buy. There are cheap alternatives out there – mostly from Asian manufacturers – but I would not recommend them. Most of them are made out of thin and stiff leather, likely contaminated with Chrome-6, are equipped with un-welded D-rings and have only few straps, they don’t really deliver on the promise the words “leather straitjacket” invokes.

With an only just three figure price point the HML Fetish leather straitjacket combines all the aspects of a serious leather straitjacket without breaking the bank (too much). It is made out of high quality, thick yet soft nappa leather which will hug the sub’s body once the straps are tightened. With quilted elbow padding and tit flaps it comes two things as standard which with other straitjackets are an extra.

Detail of the closed Tit Flaps

The downside of this straitjacket is the lack of any D-rings but the one above the crotch. So you are a bit limited when wanting to quickly attach the sub to bondage furniture. But knowing the guys at HML Fetish if you ask them they will put D-rings wherever you want them or alter this piece of bondage equipment to your personal preferences.

The HML Fetish leather straitjacket comes in sizes from S to XXL, is handmade in Germany and regardless of the size costs 995€.

ToyTorture’s Wishlist #2: Steelwerks‘ „The Vault“ Chastity Cage

The Creature Cage, one of Steelwerks more Extravagant Designs

As often I endorse “big” kink companies’ products because they are the major sources for high quality gear as much love I have for small, creative and innovative companies. These companies venture off the path of mainstream kink to supply a small niche group with gear tailored to their demands. By doing so unique designs who intrigue me get created. And if they are skillfully created, I am sold. The products of Steelwerks are a good example for this.

The Torture Puzzle, a True Extreme CBT Device

I have often said that I am not into chastity for two reasons: First I like to jerk off and only few tops trigger in me enough submission for the desire to arouse to surrender my libido to them. Second my soft dick is too large to fit comfortably into the common chastity devices like a Bird Locked, Holy Trainer or CB6000 (yes, I have tried all of them). The Bon4 Steel I reviewed a few years ago was ok for the week I wore it but I could not have worn it longer. So if I ever would embark on the journey of long term chastity it would have to be a custom device. I have tried friends’ Carrara or Latowski belts which though not made for me were too bulky and stiff to fit my professional life which leave traditional cages for me. And this is where Steelwerks come into play.

The Schandmaske out of Polished, Anodized Titanium

Just looking at their designs and savoire faire is stunning. It is the perfect fusion of handmade craftsmanship and state of the art technology. Especially the later enables them to handle materials not used by other chastity cage makes like titanium, on request even polished or anodized (as a trained jeweler I know that such surface treatments are not trivial to achieve when they should be flawless). Browsing through their gallery is like looking strolling through an industrial design exhibition: The products range from somewhere between contemporary industrial and experimental art over hardcore CBT which makes me cringe just looking at them to strikingly minimalistic piercing accessories (which still take away your ability to jerk off).

The Vault Chastity Cage with all the Accessories Supplied with it

As mesmerizing their more exotic designs are, I am a form follows function guy. So if I had to choose one of their cages it would be the Vault. The sleek tube design looks bland compared to others – the Creature for example. But it promises to combine comfort, security and daily usability. Furthermore It comes with many accessories like a PA lock (planning for the future), different urethral tubes which should take care of the piss problem almost all PAs have or a scrotal security ring for my beloved ball stretching and CBT.

A useful accessory I would recommend with every order is their S-Key Key ring. As hot as the idea of being locked without any chance of escape is to most chastity subs sadly reality can unexpectedly and unpleasantly shatter the hotness of the headspace and the cage has to come off. With more common cages which are locked with a small padlack this is just a bold cutter away. With the Steelwerks design this does not work. So carrying around a key which is secured by an individually numbered seal is the way I would go while the original key is well secured under the watch of the key holder.

Since every Steelwerks chastity cage is an individual bespoke piece they have no price list. Just contact them for a quote. I know that they are well stocked with orders so if you want yours by Christmas it is wise to get in touch with them sooner than later.
