Fist Mitts “San Francisco”

The Meo Padded & Lockable Fist Mitts „San Francisco“

Vendor: Meo

Construction

In order to create a tight and confining bondage experience these mitts have two distinct parts which are covered by one large piece of leather. The upper 2/3 is thickly padded. The padding covers a leather-lined pouch. It is so short and tight that when putting the mitts on the sub is forced to form a fist. The lower 1/3 is a wide cuff which covers the entire wrist. There is a wide strap of Velcro going down all the way to the pouch for opening the cuff wide, allowing for easy entry and tight closing of the cuff. Onto this part a belt is riveted. Between the rivets there are two welded D-rings per mitt. The belt is closed with a roller buckle and can be locked with locking posts. The mitts come with a pair of keyed alike locks.

Playing with it

The first thing you notice when you put these mitts on is the tightness. If you don’t form a fist while putting them on the locking belt won’t close. With other restraints people with slim fists can wiggle out despite the belts being tightly closed. But with these mitts the opening of the pouch is so tight that one the fist is locked in place there is no getting out creating an inescapable bondage experience. The tightness comes with a price though: The mitts are one size fits all. If the sub has larger hands (glove size 8 ½ and up) or his hands don’t collapse much he will have really problems getting these mitts on. The hard clinging of the large hands can cause circulation problems over time despite the mitts being quite comfortable.

Detail of the Velcro Cuff Adjustment

Through the forced fist forming and the thick padding these mitts effectively render the sub’s hands useless. He might be able to somehow hold a large, not to heavy object like a gym bottle between his hands so he can take of his hydration on his own. But that is as good as it is going to get. With the hands being rendered useless this just leave the feet and mouth as a means to escape from these mitts. I put one of my testees in them who is a real escape artists but he could not open the restraints so the locking posts are really just a nice psychological touch, adding to the felt bondage experience. Your sub won’t get out of them anyway.

The thick padding – especially at the front – and the loss of the power to grab things made these mitts quite popular with the pet players in my test panel. Like animals most the absence of thumbs force the pet to rely on his handler to grab things. The padding is thickest at the top so the mitts are good for walking on all fours. The leather is a bit stiffer, more dressed and treated than I wanted it to be on high quality bondage gear; I prefer a more natural feel with a rich leather scent. But this sturdier kind of leather treatment is good when playing outside like at street fairs when rough surfaces like tarmac or gravel would damage softer leather.

Dr. Sado Silicone Sounds

The Dr. Sado Silicone Sounds

Vendor: Meo

Construction

The sounds are made out of black high quality silicone. They are very flexible, quite soft and have a smooth surface without a seam you sometimes see on silicone anal toys for example. Their front is a bit tapered for easy insertion. At the end there is a cube shaped appendix which keep the sound from slipping in all the way and make controlling the toy a little bit more easy even with lubey fingers. The total lengths of the sounds are 350mm and are available in diameters from 3.5mm to 11.5mm. The larger the diameter the larger the cube at the end so the insertable length decreases a bit with raising diameter.

The Dr. Sado Silicone Sounds are so flexible you can tie various knots into them

Playing with Dr. Sado Silicone Sounds

These sounds are perfect for intense sounding scenes. The length in combination with slightly squishy material allows playing with parts of the urethra a metal sound could never reach. The friction and stretching sensation deeper inside than any metal sound can reach alone is interesting enough for experienced sounders. Since the silicone sounds are a little bit more ridged and through the cube at the end more easily controllable than a catheter tube they are good toys to prepare a novice for this kind of play. Once deep inside the sounds are long and flexible enough to play with the bladder’s sphincter and once penetrated with the inner side of the prostate. Since a sterile environment is paramount when fisting (see last paragraph) I would not recommend stimulating the prostate on both sides with a sound and a finger up the ass at the same time. Despite being made out of super smooth silicone the surface is still a bit “dull” and will never be as smooth as metal so I recommend using more lube than usually.

Detail of the Sounds‘ Tapered End for Easy Insertion

For choosing the right sound size two things should be considered: A too thin sound will be “spikey” and a little bit more difficult to insert; a too thick one won’t fit because the urethra has not been pre-stretched far enough. I have gotten three sounds with the diameter of 4.5mm, 5.5mm and 7.5mm which cover the most common diameters for sounding.

I would not recommend these sounds for beginners, especially when sounding on your one instead of getting sounded. When having lubey fingers through their length they are a bit hard to handle at times. Since they are light and a bit soft they have to be pushed in actively, requiring the sub to know the difference between a “good” and a “bad” stretching pain. For beginners I recommend stainless steel sounds. Simply put them into the tip of the dick until the first sphincter and let the weight of the sound do the work of gradually sinking in.

Detail of the Cube Shaped Appendix which prevents the Sounds from Disappearing into the Dick

One of the most important things when it comes to sounding is sterilization. Failing to play with sterile toys and lube and in an unclean environment can lead to nasty infections! Since these sounds are made out of silicone flaming them is not an option. To be absolutely after using them, wash them carefully with dish soap and then put them into boiling water for 10 minutes. Store them carefully apart from each other and not touching other toys in a clean environment to prevent plasticizers from harming the silicone. Right before I recommend cleaning them again. Silicone attracts dust as almost nothing else and dust doesn’t belong in a urethra! After washing them just with water and drying them, they should be sprayed with a skin-friendly sanitizer and wipe it off afterwards using a paper towel. For inserting them into a urethra use sterile lube. Friends of mine have been very satisfied with Meo’s VERYDEEP sterile lube. However since I am overly cautious, I do not trust sterile lube once opened, so for every scene I use a new sachet of sterile lube you can buy in pharmacies. I would only recommend using water-based lube and thus relube regularly during a long scene. Silicone lube will break down the material of the silicone sounds. Furthermore the ingredients of medical water-based lube are designed to be absorbed and processed by the human body so after some time there will be no lube left in the urethra unlike silicone lube which can linger than until everything has been pissed out.

Conclusion: Long and flexible sounds for intense play of sounding pros.

Adjustable Rim Chair

The Meo Adjustable Rim Chair

Vendor: Meo

Construction

The basic structure of this rim seat is a horse shoe shaped hot zinc dipped steel tube with 38mm diameter.  On both sides about 100mm behind the opening 175mm long handles with 32mm diameter are welded which are covered with a vinyl cover for better grip. Behind each grip a tube facing outward is welded. On its end there is a spring pushbutton. Using this button the legs which are put onto this tube can be adjusted to three heights: 410mm (550mm clearance between the legs), 380mm and 515mm clearance and 350mm with 495mm clearance. When you push the legs up all the way the height is 330mm with 460mm clearance. But since the spring pushbuttons are not holding the legs they can move. The legs are T-shaped and the ends are covered in conic shaped rubber covers which create a secure stand and keep the legs from scratching the floor.

Detail of the Spring Pushbuttoms for the Heights Adjustment

For a comfortable seat for even extended periods of time a black horse shoe shaped toilet seat with a 10cm opening is mounted onto the ring. The seat can be tipped up.

When the legs are taken off, the rim chair becomes very compact for easy storage and for travelling.

Playing with the Rim Chair

First things first: Is this a good rim chair? Yes, it is. It has a sturdy and ergonomic build so the tops sits securely and comfortable. The grips make it easy to sit down and get up. The three height settings and clearance between the legs allow even for a slim bondage board to be put between them. All pieces are easy to clean so even when the play gets nasty the rim seat shines again quickly.

Detail of the Vinyl Covered Grip

When used alone the comfortable position and ass accessibility makes this rim chair ideal furniture for anal self play. The sphincter is relaxed even when reaching down to stuff the butt so putting toys up the ass is more easily and pleasurable. Beyond that this rim seat even has a practical use: When setup in a shower or bath tub a bottom can sit down on it for a comfortable cleaning up. Through the comfortable sitting position the colon relaxes and cleaning out is more easily. There is a chance of water entering the legs through the height adjustment holes. So after cleaning out the legs should be taken off and emptied.

The rim chair even works as a compact and basic piece of bondage furniture. Wrist and ankle restraints can be attached to the legs. The most effective bondage layout is fettering the thighs to the grips using Velcro restraints. This leaves the legs spread apart so the balls and dick can be played with, ideal for CBT, especially ball busting and kicking.

Meo 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring

Vendor: Uberkinky

Meo 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring with the Matching Closing Plug

Meo 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring with the Matching Closing Plug

Construction

The Meo 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring is a rather special anal toy. The butt plug is made out of smooth aluminum with a matt black finish. It is head has the shape of a sphere through which a tube runs. On the bottom of the sphere it merges into a neck which features a smooth rounded base so the butt plug doesn’t accidently get sucked into the ass. The hole can be closed with a matching closing plug which is made out of hard rubber.

The Meo 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring comes in six different sizes. For the various dimensions of the different sizes take a look at the spreadsheet below.

Size Diameter of the Head Diameter of the Neck Length Diameter of the Tube
Extra Small 40mm 25mm 75mm 15mm
Small 50mm 35mm 80mm 25mm

Playing with it

For many subs surrendering control is a huge turn on. For that reason chastity devices are quite popular. This butt plug was designed to also control the rear side. Once you have found a comfortable size you can wear it for extended periods of time. Since the aluminum surface is not sticky and the firmness of the material makes it easy to move around so sphincter will shift the plug in a comfortable position. So the Meo 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring is more comfortable to wear than rubber or vinyl ones. Due to really being able to be worn for long periods of time, it is a great toy to train your ass to easily take a certain size of toys (or fists).

For finding the right size you should take some time to assess what the wearer’s ass can really handle. Being my out of metal this butt plug you can’t squeeze it in but only force it in (which I would not recommend). Also: The opening makes it rather dull which makes insertion even more difficult. In order for a smooth insertion of the Meo 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring stretch the ass in advance with butt plugs until one with an approx. 20% larger diameter goes in easily. If you have a dildo that fits through the butt plug’s hole put it there for a smoother opening up of the sphincter.

Detail of the Closed Plug

Detail of the Closed Plug

Once inserted give the ass some time to adjust to the new feeling and get tighter again. I recommend that you don’t stretch out the ass too much. Being made out of aluminum the plug has some considerably weight so if the sphincter it too relaxed there is a chance the plug will fall out of the ass. You can prevent that from happening with wearing a plug harness that keeps the butt plug in place. This is also recommend when you want to wear it while sleepng. Even though when you love you Meo 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring for your body it will remain a foreign object that he wants to get rid off so it is not uncommon that this butt plug gets pushed out when sleeping.

For really enjoying this plug 24/7 I recommend getting the matching closing plug in order to keep messy incidents from happening. If the pressure from the inside isn’t too strong it takes just a little push to put it in place. Pushing it in harder requires infinitesimal more fore when pulling it out so you might accidently pull the plug out. So be a bit careful. Of cause with the hole in the middle the messiness can be forced or created. One friend uses his small plug at the beginning of a fisting scene to pour lube into the fistees rectum. This butt plug is also great to piss into someone’s ass and still practicing safer sex.

Being made out of metal cleaning this toy is easy: You can put it in your dishwasher, throw it into boiling hot soapy water or even use chlorine or bleach (though I would recommend alcohol for safety reasons). Once properly cleaned you can use this butt plug on a different partner without any fear of transmitting a disease.

Blackjump Wrist Suspension Restaints

The Blackjump Suspension Restaints

The Blackjump Suspension Restaints

Vendor: Blackjump

Construction

The basis of this toy is a 13cm wide wrist restraint. It is made out of latigo leather onto which a rather firm and thin padding with soft leather cover is sowed. The restraint is closed with two latigo leather belts equipped with roller buckles. Onto the body a long strap of latigo leather is riveted. Through several rivets it has an h-shape with a welded D-ring on each vertical part and carrying a brushed stainless steel grabpole on the horizontal part. The leather is high quality and the manufacturing is spotless. Yet due to the materials used it takes a little bit longer to break them in. The restraints come with a standard steel carabiner which as always I recommend to switch for a climbing carabiner.

Playing with it

If this restraint lives up to its name depends on your play style. Through the stiff body the wrist is kept upright and well supported. Yet the padding is way firmer than on that restraint so I would not recommend the weight of a body resting on the lower bones of the hand. So a suspended sub would have to hold onto the grabpole which is essentially the stress bondage. Some testees found that scenario incredibly hot! Personally I prefer the 4 buckle style – at least for suspension.

Detail of the Roller Buckles and the Padding

Detail of the Roller Buckles and the Padding

In different play scenarios I really love these restraints. Because the D-rings are centered above the hand you can really stretch a sub into a spread eagle. Also in a hogtie the bounding force being an extension of the arm feels more natural than pulling perpendicular on the wrist like when using a D-ring attached to the side of a cuff style wrist restraint. This more natural flow of force is also good in many other play situations, p.e. when fettering a sub into a sling. I used these restraints into a fisting once and the sub used the bars to lift him up and really thrust his ass onto my fist.

Speaking of position these restraints are good to compensate for the shortcoming of most crosses in play spaces. There are good reasons to put a St.-Andrews-Cross into a play space yet for flogging in combination with cuff style restraints they are not ideal. The arms get stretched up leading to tensed up shoulder muscles. If you use these restraints the arms can hang easily so that the upper arms are in line with the shoulder leading to relaxed muscles.

Meo Foot Suspension Bonds Deluxe

Vendor: Meo

This is one of the toys Meo kindly sent me for the heavy bondage special. And since I finally got a chance to try the restraints out as a sub Easter Sunday at Quälgeist I am finally able to write the review.

The Front of the Meo Foot Suspension Restraints

The Front of the Meo Foot Suspension Restraints

Construction

The first impression is: They are massive! The body of these restraints is 170mm long. Its exterior is made out of stiff, sturdy leather. Usually I would complain about the cardboard like soulless leather quality but in this case the stiffness is a feature for giving the foot and ankle all the support they need. This outer shell is covered with padded soft high quality leather. While the padding at the instep is a bit thinner and firmer the “cushion” that wraps around the ankle is lavishly thick, almost like a pillow. It is designed that way that if the ankle is not too massive no metal of the many rivets that are use to hold the stiff body in shape even under large strain touches the skin. The padding layout leads to the comparatively robust foot being pushed into the “harder” area while the more fragile ankle is well protected yet without having too much give to allow the foot to slip out of the restraint when fettered properly. The fettering is done by two latgio leather straps with roller buckles. Their holes’ spacing is 18mm. While this is ok due to the thick padding which can take some of the pressure, a little bit finer spacing (15mm hole distance p.e.) would have been better to ensure safe and comfortable bondage. Onto each side of the body a 55mm wide and 220mm long latigo leather strap with a massive welded d-ring is riveted.

Playing with it

Putting these restraints on is no rocket science yet takes a bit of practice: Out the body around the foot, than adjust the leather covered padding. Next tighten the strap close to the foot securely, than the other one. If you don’t want to use the restraints for suspension, you are done now. For suspension purposes retighten both straps so they are just tight enough not to cut circulation. Otherwise the friction of the padding might be to low causing the foot to slip out of the restraints. I recommend putting the restraints on at the place where you want to fetter the sub. Unlike cuff style restraints it is a bit hard to walk wearing these restraints because of the straps onto which the d-rings are mounted.

Once put on you can there are different ways to use these restraints. For suspension I recommend using one carabineer for both d-rings because it causes less swinging. The restraints come with a d-rings but I would strongly advice you not to use it to suspend a sub’s weight from there but use a climbing carabineer instead. These restraints are also great for less spectacular bondage. Because the d-rings straps are an extension of the legs I found these restraints a massive improvement of cuff style ones when tying someone into a spread eagle. The force holding the leg in down is more evenly distributed and works directly against the movement a struggling subs shows. This characteristic and thick padding make these restraints ideal for hogties over extended periods of time. If you soften the d-rings straps so that they bend easily perpendicular to the restraints‘ body the make great bondage means for bastonado. The soles of the feet are nicely exposed and if you have a way to fetter the d-rings tightly they won’t move very much, allowing for precise hitting.

Detail of the Lavish Padding

Detail of the Lavish Padding

Through the thick padding and long straps, these restraints even fit massive ankles and feet. If you really take advantage of the entire strap length you can even fit feet with boots into them. I tried the restraints with rangers, engineer and motocycle boots and encountered no problem size wise. The only kinds of boots that were too large were motocross and skiing boots.

Finally a word of warning when using them to be suspended from your feet down: Every position facing downward is increasing the blood pressure towards the head. The steeper the angle, the higher it gets. Don’t remain in this position for too long because the fine veins in the head can’t handle the pressure too well. If you have high blood pressure or have used poppers do not get suspended with the head down. Also: The big muscles in the calves and thighs are needed to pump the blood through the body. After it has accumulated in the head and if it rushes back you can have a heart attack!

Meo Abuse me/ Fuck Me-Restraints

Vendor: Meo

The Abuse Me Restraints fully Assambled without Locks

The Abuse Me Restraints fully Assambled without Locks

I was for some time looking for a restraint layout; I actually was developing one of my own until I discovered this nifty one at Meo’s website. So I was very happy when they send me the toys as a review sample for the heavy bondage special.

Construction

This restraint consists out of four pieces. The basis is a 5cm x 21cm large piece of stiff leather. In the middle is a pin with a drilled hole to house a pad lock. Onto this pin a 28cm long leather strap is attached. The strap has eleven holes with a spacing of 1.5cm for adjusting the space between the balls and the restraints. Onto the far end of the strap another 22cm long strap of soft triple layered leather is attached for being put around the balls or the entire junk. On the one side of this strap is another pin, on the other side six holes for adjusting the size. Left and right of the pin of the basic piece of leather are the rows of three holes each. Through these holes you put the provided wrist restraints. Their outside is made out of stiff leather, the inside is lined with soft a one. They feature a welded D-ring and two pins with drilled holes at the top. In order to adjust the size there are six sets of holes allowing for a diameter between and 4.5cm and 7.5cm.

The toy comes with six keyed alike locks.

Detail of the two Wrist Restraints

Playing with it

Putting this restraint configuration on takes a bit of work: First you put on the wrist restraints and attach them to the rectangular body. Once you have done that you can already use this toy as all leather rigid cuffs. The next step is to put the leather strap either around the balls or your entire junk depending on the intended effect. Putting it just around the balls will increase the pain sensation. The same counts for the last step: Attaching the genitalia to the main body. The shorter the distance between them, the more intense the sensation.

The Toy used as Rigid Cuffs

The Toy used as Rigid Cuffs

As you can tell from the way it is put on the unique purpose of this toy is creating a physical feedback loop between the hands and the balls. This leads to interesting bondage scenarios. The first one is probably stress bondage. Put the sub in an uncomfortable position and watch him wiggle. Each evasive movement with his arms will tug on his balls. This is especially effective when the balls are already bruised. If you are really sadistic you can do what a friend of mine did and put a leather strap with (dull) pins on the inside of the strap around the balls. Of cause this feedback loop works also the other way round. Once the sub has found a somewhat comfortable position, smack his balls to encourage some movement. But also in a normal play situation this method of fettering someone is very interesting. The human body usually try to “work out” pain sensation through muscle movement. So regardless of what you are doing to the sub as soon as he tries to move his arms to help processing the sensation his balls will feel the effect. I found that particularly fun in combination with CBT or e-stim around the balls. The more the sub tries to work out the sensation, the more his balls hurt. What I haven’t tried but probably is forbidden amount of fun is attaching an electrode to the balls and clipping the E-Stim Systems Remote with its movement sensor onto it.

Despite Meo’s product name calling them Abuse Me/ Fuck me restraints this restraint layout is NOT made for fucking, at least when it comes to anal intercourse. The strap connecting the balls with the wrist restraints runs directly through or above (depending on the tension) the ass crack so the sphincter is covered.

Conslusion: Unique and effective combination of CBT and bondage.
