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.

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.

The IKEA Chosigt Funnel attached to the Recycler

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.

Oxballs Chomp Gag

The Oxballs Chomp Gag

Vendor: Mr S Leather

Construction

The gag is made out of two different kinds of silicone. The mouth-piece is made out of soft red platinum silicone. The front is a thick disk with 50mm diameter with a gap housing a black polymer ring. Onto this ring a strap out of sturdy black silicone is attached. It is 20mm wide and 600mm long. The edges of the strap are slightly deburred so they are comfortable to wear. Sadly it has not roller buckle which makes fasting it a bit complicated. This is annoying especially since you should not pull the silicone too rough in order not to damage it.

Detail of the Gumshield-Style Mouthpiece

The front tappers into the actual gag’s mouthpiece. It is molded like the gumshield of a football or ice hockey helmet for the teeth to rest comfortably and securely. The sides are somewhat flexible to accommodate different jaw sizes. From the middle of the gumshield to the front there is a 10mm wide hole. The Chomp gag comes with an elbow connector to connect the gag to other Oxballs piss toys (like the Piss Lock). The connector can be taken out to turn it into a hollow gag.

Playing with the Chomp Gag

First things first: If you are looking for a gag as a piece of bondage gear to silence the sub or keep his mouth open, look elsewhere. At best it slightly muffles the sub’s noises. This gag is made for action and high energy play. The soft gumshield is made to offer the sub resistance and protection when he works out the pain with his mouth especially when he is a biter like me who clench their jaws during play. The look of the mouthpiece proofed to be very popular with sports gear fetishist because of the pro sports look it has.

Detail of the Central Hole and Elbow Connector

The hole in middle has some play potential. When closing the sub’s nose – for example during glove over mouth – you can control the air flow through the hole either using your fingers or a plug. Alternatively you can force-feed the incense like poppers or cigar smoke. Regarding piss play I am a bit ambivalent which verdict to give: The small diameter of the hole makes it easy to cover it with the tongue. Eventually the top needs some alternative means to “motivate” the sub to move it. The small diameter is also a problem when the bladder pressure is high; the piss can’t simply move through the small tube quickly enough – if the sub does not suck eagerly and greedy on the mouthpiece.

Being made out of silicone it is very easy to clean even after piss scenes. Simply soak it hot dish soap water, rinse it and slap it onto the next bottom.

Conclusion: Easy to sanitize gag for biters.

Blaze, Flint & Chance – A Pack of Bad Dragons

The Three Bad Dragon Dildos reviewed this Time: Flint, Blaze and Chance

Vendor: Bad Dragon

This is the third test of Bad Dragon toys I am writing. And it seems: The more I write about these toys, the more questions I get about specific toys. Luckily, through their unique design, testing and writing about these toys is always interesting. So, if you have read the previous reviews, you can quickly skip to “Playing with the Dildos”. If you are new to Bad Dragon or even ToyTorture.com: Welcome to this pervy little place. Let me tell you something more about these extravagant anal toys…

Material

Bad Dragon prides itself in producing some of the best anal toys out there which starts out with using quality materials. Bad Dragon only uses platinum silicone. This kind of silicone is similar to what sometimes is referred to as “medical silicone” online. While it is medial grade, medical silicone is too firm to make anal toys out of it. The “platinum” refers to the catalyst being used for making silicone. Platinum silicone can withstand acid and heat better than other catalysts like tin for example which can have adverse effects on the body. Being so robust, platinum silicone toys are easy to clean: You can put them in hot water, rub them down with mild acid or autoclave them.  Additionally the surface is super-smooth which makes it hard for bacteria to linger and grow. So these toys are ideal when playing with different partners because they are easy to clean thoroughly.

Detail of the Scales texturing Flint’s Shaft

However, one thing silicone toys do not forgive is the use of silicone or hybrid lube. The silicone will disintegrate the toy, first making it sticky, then gooey. Only use water- or oil-based lube with these toys!

All Bad Dragon anal toys can be made in three different degrees of firmness: Soft, Medium and Firm while firm is not available on XL toys. Soft toys are good for not yet well trained asses or really large toys because the sphincter can deform the toy a bit to fit well. However the softer the material the less stability a toy has so especially with long toys there is a chance they will collapse with the soft material. Also keep in mind: The thicker a toy the harder it will feel. In any case, silicone will always be softer than vinyl, rubber or metal. To help find the right firmness, Bad Dragon offers a set of discs in all degrees of firmness.

One advantage of silicone is that you can easily color and that it is hard to discolor. Bad Dragon offer 56 basic colors for all toys plus special ones for specific plus special effects like florescence or glitter plus patterns. Maybe one day when I am bored I will calculate the number of colors and patterns possible. To a certain degree, there is an interdependency of firmness and color pattern: Soft toys can’t fade from one color to another. The silicone is too viscous and would flow into each other instead of producing a nice fade.

Blaze’s almost smooth Glans, Shaft and Knot

Shape

At the date of the publishing of this review, Bad Dragon offer 62 butt plugs and dildos – not including little lube applicators, vibrators and packers. For most toys the size ranges from small (like a smaller dick) to XL (depending on the toy real of a single or even double fisting).

While most people when shopping for toys only look at the diameter, at Bad Dragon toys the depth and thus the position of the maximum diameter are important. Most fistees are more trained to take width rather than depth. So it can be a bit disappointing when the enticing, big knot is way below the level one can take depth-wise.

The name “Bad Dragon” shows the company’s affiliation with the furry scene. All the dildos are inspired by anthropomorphic fantasy creatures like dragons or werewolves and some real ones like dogs and horses. This design inspiration reflects in the toy design. Most toys are heavily textured with veins or scales running the shaft and ridges or bumps subtly increasing the diameter. The texture stimulates the many nerve endings inside the sphincter. But the more texture, the harder to toy will be to take. So I highly recommend taking the degree of texturing into consideration when choosing the size and firmness.

Detail of Chance’s Glans

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

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

Flint and Blaze Glowing after having been Exposed to UV Light

Playing with the Dildos

Blaze the Fire Drake

Blaze’s shape is almost like a traditional, anatomically correct dildo. It starts out with a big, fat glans below which are some gentle ripples and then grows into a big, fat knot which is textured by really subtle veins. It tappers again above the base so you can comfortably rest on it, enjoying the filling feeling of the big knot. Blaze is one of the few toys which comes in five sizes: From Mini to XL. This adds to him being a good beginner’s toy with a maximum diameter 4.25cm and usable length of approx. 10cm. My Blaze is made in Blaze’s Signature color which fluoresces blue. Especially in play setting with UV lighting or a dark room after having been “charged” with black light, this effect adds a nice visual aspect to the scene.

The Anatomic Glans of Flint and the Bumps and Ripples on his Shaft

Flint the Uncut Studded Dragon

Flint is quite the opposite of Blaze. The tip starts out with the glans lurking under a ring of foreskin which makes the tip rather dull. Starting from the frenulum around the glans are seven bumps on both sides which run down the upper side of the heavily curved shaft, flanking subtle ripples. The shaft’s lower part which is arching out is textured with deep, scale-like ridges. While the shaft’s diameter increases towards the middle and gets thinner again, this toy does not have a knot but the texturing goes down all the way to the base which is shaped like two massive balls. The color on this Flint is a bit like the one on the Blaze. It is called “The 5th Kind” and fluoresces green under UV light.

Chance the Unflared Stalion

To review Chance was a request by many readers. While most other Bad Dragons focus on the stretch of the knot and the stimulation of the texturing, this is explicitly made for depth play. The glans is a slightly dulled dome with small ripples around the rim. It tappers slightly at the shaft which except some veins and a bump in the middle is completely smooth. This lack of stimulation equals lack of irritation so Chances travels somewhat smoothly through the colon. The shaft ends in a massive base shaped like two testicles which ensure a secure stand despite not being offered with a suction cup.

There is also a “Flared” version of Chance out there. Flared is the state when a horse’s glans increases in size and diameter when climaxing. The wide, flat glans makes the tip extremely dull and this is only a toy for ass pigs with a really loose hole and lots of width training in the deep.

Choosing the texture for Chance is more important and more difficult than on other toys. It is available in all three firmnesses. If your colon is not extremely well trained for depth play in a way that you can stick your fist in and just keep going, do not choose firm! The toy will be too stiff to go around the bends of the colon. While soft is of course predestinated for that, through the “wobbliness” the toy is hard to control. So my personal recommendation (and the one of all my friends who own a Chance) is getting it in medium.

This Chance’s color is a “simple” fade from two blue colors called “Midnight Aquatic”.

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.

MC Customs Impact Toys

A Selection of MC Customs Impact Toys

Vendor: MC Customs

Sometimes I get very specific questions where to get toys for a very particular scene. Especially from the United Kingdom and Asia readers ask me where to get authentic impact toys for corporal punishment role play. Apparently their tragic history of physical forms of punishment in their education system created a special fetish scene. Since this is not really my kind of kink, I had to do some digging around until I found a company which makes toys satisfying the requirements made in most of the inquiries.

Construction

All toys from MC Customs are made out of really high quality leather. When I first opened the parcel, the rich smell of quality leather was intoxicating and it still have some presence in my playroom. The manufacturing shows real craftsmanship: All edges are burnished and dyed edges; the toys which consist of two leather layers are sowed flawless. Each toy is embossed with the makers stamp. But on certain toys you can even add a customization like my nick name on the Holed Spade Paddle. The leather is dyed in two colors, either a London Tan – which I have been told is the authentic color – or a more “modern” dark brown.

Three different Types of Lochgelly Impact Toys: A Strap, two Two Tail Tawses and a Three Tail Tawse

For their tawses and straps, they use three different kinds of hides with different degrees of stiffness. The stiffer the hide, the more sever the impact blow will feel. The straps and tawses are all 60cm long but the width depends on the impact space design: The Two Tail Tawses and Narrow Straps are 3.2cm wide, the Wide Straps 3.8cm and the Three Tail Twases are 4cm wide. There are two styles available: The Glasgow style which has a short grip section and rounded end and the Lochgelly style which has a longer grip section and a pointed end. The Lochgelly implements have the severness degree embossed just above the hole for hanging the toys or attaching a loop.

The Ferrula was originally used by monks in Christian schools. It is made by sowing two pieces of stiff leather together. Being 33cm long, both ends are slightly drop-shaped with a width of 5.6cm at the half-circle and then tappers to 5.2cm in the middle.

The Holed Spade Paddle is also made out of two pieces of leather. The overall length of it is 37cm. The grip is 14cm long and is supported by a metal tube to make it stiffer and more comfortable to rip. At the end, there is no hole for hanging the toys but a short leather loop attached. Starting out from the grip the paddle tappers for 9cm into the impact area which measures 14cm by 12cm. This area has four rows of three holes each which reduce the wind resistance and thus increase the impact sensation.

Playing with the Impact Toys

Tawses and Straps

Having been originally designed to really punish people, these toys are not for the faint of heart. While there are the three mentioned intensity degrees, the difference between a Medium and Extra Heavy is not between “I felt that” and “That fucking hurts.” but “Ouch” and screaming in excruciating pain. You can influence that also by the selection of the toy: The strap will feel the “nicest” while the Two Tail Tawse is quite nasty due to the reduced wind resistance. Another aspect to keep in mind is the coloring. The heavier the material the stronger is colors. While all will quickly redden the ass, the Extra Heavy can produce some degree of bruising, depending on the sub.

The MC Customs Ferrula

If you are not an experienced impact top, I do not recommend using these toys straight out of the box. Since they are long and thin, throwing them in a controlled manner takes some practice. If you want to vary your blows a bit, I definitely recommend getting the Lochgelly style: The further you grip towards the impact area, the lesser the impact sensation and the more controlled the throwing. Holding the toys this way enables you to use them for a sort of warm-up. Warming up the bottom is a necessity with these toys because especially when delivering severe blows with the Extra Heavy tawses right away, there is a chance of breaking the skin. But once you mastered the toys, there is some pain variance in them which besides the kinetic energy is determined by how much of the toy hits the bottom – from a full blow to just flicking with the ends.

Ferrula

The Ferrula falls in the category “small and nasty”. Being stiff, it is very stingy even when putting little energy into it. But you can control the blows easily enough for a proper warm-up. Being small and nimble, tops from my testee panel used it for all forms of impact play, from ball busting to bastinado. With the stiffness comes that it is a bit of a bruiser but mostly reddens.

The MC Customs Holed Spade Paddle

Despite the small size it is just long enough to target both cheeks, but it really shines when putting all of the blow into one spot. One of my testees actually put the paddle into his briefcase and carried it around all day, just to have it at hand when his slave needed some TLC during his lunch break.

Holed Spade Paddle

From all the toys reviewed here, this is probably the most conventional of the toys reviewed today. Everybody who knows how to spank with a paddle can incorporate it into a scene right away. Despite the holes, it is the “nicest” of all impact toys and actually quite good for warm-up. The large hitting surface distributed the kinetic energy and thus the sensation over a large area. Furthermore through the size the impact surface has a little give, softening the blow to a certain degree. Despite all of that: It is still a stingy toy. While it reddens the skin quickly, none of my testees managed to bruise with it. So if the scene requirement is not leaving (lasting) marks, it is the toy to get.

Conclusion: Very well made sever impact toys with unique history design.
