The Square Peg Longneck Humped

Construction

The Longneck Humped starts out with a plug section which looks a little bit like a goose’s head or a hand with closed fingers for a fisting. It tapers conically over the first 65mm for very easy insertion, then one side smoothly increases to a bump with a max. diameter of 70mm. Below this plug-like head the shaft tapers like on a Slink with a faint, almost Acorn-like ridge of 77mm diameter above the plug-like neck. The base is a solid and rectangular for a secure stand and to prevent the Longneck to accidently disappear inside the bottom’s ass. The overall length of the Longneck Humped is 360mm of which 300mm are usable.

Playing with the Longneck Humped

As already written: The Longneck Humped is very easy to insert due to the conically shaped tip. The bump into which it flows is an nifty feature. Through the bump the head does not only resemble the shape of a hand, accustoming the colon to the feeling of such an object moving forward, but it gives the toy a “sense of direction”. You can feel where it goes and through twisting discover which is the easiest way around the bends deep inside the ass. This helps to get a feeling how a hand should navigate when trying to venture in depth play. The solid, “edged” base helps a top to precisely twist and turn the Longneck to find the way of the lowest resistance when slowly and carefully (!) pushing forward. When doing this exploring on your own, the Longneck is a bit more difficult to handle. Through the soft material which makes it easy to move around the bends it collapses and flops easily. This makes it hard to ride and even without a suction cup, the stickiness of the silicone makes it hard to twist and navigate the toy when the base rests on the floor. So you rather move while squatting over it instead of twisting the toy… When lying on the back, it takes both hands reaching back to support the body until it is deep inside the colon. This position takes a lot of body tension, leading to a not really relaxed bowels which makes the play more challenging again. Because of that for beginners, it is a bit more of a couples’ toy. When starting going deep on your own, I would recommend a Slink or Depth Probe.

But if you are more experience and due to training the toy finds its way inside you on its own, it is a great toy for self-play and further depth training. Riding it, it hits all the right places. The plug part massages or gently fucks the inner sphincter while the ridge at the bottom targets the prostate and anus. This kind of double stimulation was actually so intense, that some of the testees had to reduce the “usual” fucking speed because they considered the Longneck Humped too intense.

Where to buy?

In the USA you can get the Longneck Humped at Mr S for $169.95 and in the EU from Regulation for £169.99.

Family Portrait of the Other Longneck Varietes

The Humped is part of an entire Longneck family where you can everything for depth play: Starting with a complete smooth version (which has a smaller max diameter and overall length than the Longneck Humped) over one textured humps to a version with delightfully mean bumps to one for REALLY deep play.

Ever since Oxballs announced in early 2018 that there would be a new, larger version of the popular Pig-Hole tunnel plug, I was inundated with messages when it would come out and once it did, when I would review it. Due to the massive size of this toy, it was a bit difficult to find testees for it. But now I have found enough to finally give you what is probably one of the most anticipated reviews of this year.

Red Pig-Hole FF vs black Pig-Hole XXL

Construction

The Pig-Hole FF follows the same design and shape as the original Pig-Holes. The opening at the top is a bit slanted with a tip for easier insertion. From the opening the body extends to a wide barrel shape and later tapers to a small neck until flowing into a base. The opening measures 48x62mm and the barrel a whopping 93x108mm while the neck “only” measures 55x72mm. This means the Pig-Hole FF is about 20% larger in volume though at 155mm only 5mm taller than is Pig-Hole XXL. The hole in the bottom measures 57x75mm and thus is only about 10% larger than the XXL, but through a more ergonomically re-design of the base, it has roughly the same footprint making it still fit perfectly between the ass cheeks.

The Pig-Hole FF’s Barrel Size compared to the Size of the Pig-Hole XXL

Inside the barrel, there are the same ridges as on the original Pig-Hole though they are about 15% deeper for added stability. Oxballs also increased the wall strength from 6.5mm to 8mm to keep the toy inflated even with a little unwilling holes. This increased rigidness also means that you can’t turn the Pig-Hole FF inside out anymore.

The Pig-Hole FF come in Red and Black and not as during the design process discussed on Twitter also in Oxball’s newest color Steel.

Playing with the Pig-Hole FF

Two and a half year ago, I started this paragraph talking about that the greatest challenge of the Pig-Hole XXL is the insertion. And with the Pig-Hole FF it is even worse, for two reasons:

  1. The easiest way to get the Pig-Hole in is to fold the plug. But the footprint increased from 48x38mm to 51x47mm. It takes a very loose hole to take a “blunt” surface of that size.
  2. The added rigidness makes it harder to and kept fold. Being prepped for insertion with loads of lube makes that a really difficult task.

Detail of the Ridges inside the Pig-Hole FF’s Barrel for Added Stability

Along with the unfolded size means that the Pig-Hole FF is as toy for really experienced and greedy ass pigs whos hole have been properly loosened up during the scene. But the new design also helps such sloppy holes: Since the length only marginally increased compared to the massive diameter growth, the slopes of the taper are steeper, meaning it will also stay in place more easily. This is also necessary because despite the larger holes on both ends, the thicker material requires actually a bit more strength to fist through the Pig-Hole FF. Again, the good thing for a real stretch pig is that fist fucking with a Pig-Hole FF wrapped around a hand is blissfully intense!

Detail of the Pig-Holes‘ Opening Hole. You can see the Larger Opening and Thicker Wall of the Pig-Hole FF

Being a tunnel plug, you can also do the fun things with the Pig-Hole FF which an open hole offers: Pour in liquids, close it with a plug (my recommendation: Square Peg Acron; the ridge just about the taper almost works like a lock) or make the bottom incontinent for a bit and forcing him to wear a diaper.

Where to buy?

You can get the Pig-Hole FF at Mr S for $124.95 in the USA or Regulation for £109 in the EU.

Sqaure Peg Peg Away Putty

The Square Peg Peg Away Putty’s Putty (left) and Activator (right)

Vendor: Mr S (USA) & Regulation (EU)

What is Peg Away Putty for?

There are many great ass toy manufacturers out there who produce an incredible number of different toys for every kind of ass, kink and fantasy. Yet each ass is different, each bottom’s “itch” is placed somewhere else. For this kind of situation, Square Peg introduced their Peg Away Putty. As the name says, it is a putty you can mold to alter the shape of your silicone (and ONLY silicone, best platinum silicone!) toys to fit your needs best. You can also create entire toys from scratch, starting from sounds over what Square Peg calls “bands” which you can put on your wrist for fisting or your toys to add texture up to entire plugs and dildos though this will be a pricy endeavor.

Detail of the Putty and Activator

What do you get?

Each set consists of two containers: One with an opaque white activator for curing the silicone and one with the colored putty. This putty comes in all typical Square Peg colors and firmnesses: The iconic bronze and graphite in supersoft, in firm the classic black but also in white, blue red, yellow, green, pink, brown, purple, orange and grey. The entire container does not need to be used at once. Just take as much putty and activator as you need and close the container afterwards. You also get a manual which explains how to use the putty correctly (and which I have misplaced).

How do you use it?

Before you start actually using it on toys, I recommend playing with the putty without the activator to get a feeling for the material, how it behaves, how you could shape it and how to mold it on the toy. Without the activator it won’t cure so you can play around with it, try a different shape and start over again.

The Square Peg Pegger Extractor with More Putty Sever Ridges

When you have gathered enough experience, realized your idea in vitro without the activator and got a feeling how much putty you need for your project, the toy, surface and hands need to be prepared. All surfaces coming in contact with the putty must be grease and dirt free. So I recommend washing everything with a degreasing dish soap. When you are from the USA I recommend the simple Dawn Ultra (NOT the ones with lotion or special smell or else), in Germany I use either Pril or Fit. The putty should best be used with well cleaned bare hands, because gloves can be covered in stuff which can hinder the curing process. Also, the putty comes off the hands so easily, you do not need gloves. If you have very sensitive hands, Square Pegs offers special glove which are made to work with the putty.

To ensure a proper curing and bonding, you have to use equal parts of putty and activator. This means you will need half the putty amount from your in vitro tests. Now knead both elements on a smooth surface like a glass cutting borad until you get a homogenous mixture. And then the shaping starts. Like good pizza dough, the mixture is very elastic and tends to return to its original shape. So it needs a bit of beating and stretching until it maintains the desired shape. Wrapping it around plastic tubes helps with that. Once the final shape is reached, either gently yet firmly attach the putty to the existing toy or add texture. Now the toy needs to rest for at least three hours for the curing and bonding to take place – I recommend letting it sit over night – and then your new toy is ready to go.

Peg Away Putty Used to make the  Pegger Extractor’s Rim more Blunt

So much for the technical part. But how does it feel to work with it? To be honest, I am not the most handy person and I was afraid to use the Peg Away Putty. But the playing around with the putty helped a lot and showed me how easy it is. When altering a toy, I recommend taking it easy and not add too much material. Especially when it comes to adding texture to a toy, even little and subtle additions can have a big affect on how the toy feels; adding a bit of girth with a steep slope can turn an easy fucker into a hard struggle.

The Peg Away Putty comes in different package sizes from 1 oz to 4 oz with the price ranging from $14.95 to $44.94. Just take a look at the range at Mr S and Regulation which set fits your project best.

Square Peg Mega Milk’it

Form: Prostate Massager/ Plug
Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: Graphite and Bronze
Firmness: Soft
Lube: Water, Oil
Cleaning: Soaking in hot water with dish-soap than use sanitizer.
Safer Sex: Clean and sanitize it thoroughly
Storage: Store in a well-ventilated place not touching other toys to prevent damage.

Vendor: Mr S Leather (USA) & Regulation (UK)

Construction

The Mega Milk’it borrows its basic shape from the popular Egg plug with it smooth, oval body, a smaller neck and a stretched base to fit comfortably between the ass cheeks. Though both sides of the body are very different: One side has a small bulge above before the taper towards the base, very similar to the Acorn. The other side has been “cut off” and replaced with ridges around the rim and two thicker, thus sturdier ones sticking out of the hollow carved into the body. The base on the side of the ridge is flat, on the side of the ridges it is curved upward like on the Egg plug.

The Square Peg Mega Milk’it

The overall height of the plug is 150mm of which the body takes up 110mm. The body is 64mm wide and measuring the ridges on the rim 54mm deep. Because the ridges fold easily and the body has relatively little mass due to the deep hollow it folds easily, making it easy to insert despite the texture. The upward pointing tip raises 40mm above the base.

The Ridges inside the Hollow on one side of the Body

Like all Square Peg toys the Mega Milk’it is made out of platinum silicone which makes the toy body safe, hypo allergenic and easy to clean. Though you should not use it with silicone lube because the silicone oil in it will damage the toy.

Playing with the Mega Milk’it

As written already, the Mega Milk’it is quite easy to insert. I recommend using lots of lube, maybe even injecting some lube into the ass because this is not a toy for long-term wearing but for moving inside the hole targeting the prostate. Alternatively – for extra effect – hold the head of a massager against the base. The soft material will transmit the vibration onto the prostate and sphincter making it buzz and the bottom squirm and scream.

Detail of the Bulge on one side of the Body

Both sides have very different effects which greatly depend on the bottom’s anatomy. The bulge is meant for moving the toy in and out, massaging the prostate in a smooth, flowing way. Some testees – like me – would have wished for a little bit more prominent bulge but this can easily be fixed using Square Peg’s Peg Away Putty. The ridges both work when fucking with the toy but also for twisting inside the hole and are a little bit better for vibrations because through the smaller contact area they are felt more intense. In order to fully enjoy the ridges, the ass has to be fairly relaxed; otherwise the just fold creating a still textured surface instead of sticking out ridges. When using this side of the toy, the base’s tip also massages the prostate on the perineum. BUT: The side only worked for about 60% of my testee panel.  To explain why, let’s dive a bit into anatomy: A healthy prostate is an about walnut sized organ sitting just behind the sphincter and above the perineum. Depending on the individual anatomy, it can be half a walnut bulging the rectum’s mucosa or just be a little, almost unnoticeable rising. If the latter is the case, the ridges inside the hollow do not reach is, just the flappy ones around the rim can stimulate it, making it hard to target.

Detail of the Base

So despite this being a good and fun toy, I would not consider it a great toy. The hollow is too deep to make it enjoyable for everyone. The ridges are just a bit too flappy for an on point stimulation. Part of the criticism could be addressed with offering the toy also in Firm Black. With this added firmness and with just a little bit thicker (thus sturdier) and especially in the middle longer ridges, it could bring fun to every prostate.

Where to buy?

In the USA you can get the Mega Milk’it at Mr S for $69.95 and in the EU from Regulation for £69.99.

If the Mega Milk’it is too large for you or you do not like the textured side, Square Pegs offers a variety of other prostate massagers like the Charlie Horse Milk it which is basically a smaller size of the Mega Milk’it or the Kidney plug – in small Charlie Horse and large – which “just” massages your prostate with a bump but otherwise is smooth.

Square Peg Ripple & Vortex Slink

Vendor: Mr S Leather (USA & Canada) & Regulation (EU)

Form: Dildo
Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: Graphite and Bronze
Firmness: Soft
Lube: Water, Oil
Cleaning: Soaking in hot water with dish-soap than use sanitizer.
Safer Sex: Clean and sanitize it thoroughly
Storage: Store in a well-ventilated place not touching other toys to prevent damage.

About half a year ago I reviewed the two most popular depth toys from Square Peg: The Depth Probe and the “smooth” Slink. Since then I have gotten many reader questions about the Slink, especially the textured models which I will answer in this review.

The Square Peg Slink Smooth S, Vortex and Ripple M

I have also been getting questions about the Slink Spike and the Slink Stretch which exceeded my budget. If you want to fix that, feel free to get in touch 😉

Construction

Both Slinks have the same basic shape as the smooth one: At the bottom there is an oval, 20% larger than maximum stretch base which fits well between the ass cheeks. It can also be equipped with a suction cup, ideal for selfplay in the bathroom. On the base’s rim there is the toy’s name and size imprinted into. The base flows into a short tapered neck for long-term wearing or resting when getting fucked with the slink. The neck quickly extends to the maximum stretch which than tappers in very long cone to a pointy yet rounded tip.

Detail of the Slink’s Plug-style Neck

As the name already says, the Ripple’s body is covered with gentle, about 2mm deep grooves. The distance between the grooves starts out at about 20mm and gets smaller the closer they get to the tip. Around the Vortex’s body run four 6mm high ridges like on a wood drill.

The Vortex only comes in one size with an overall length of 500mm and a maximum stretch of 60mm which places it between the Medium and Medium/Large smooth Slink. The Ripple Slink comes in too standard Slink sizes medium (length 405mm and max. diameter 61mm) and large (length 533mm and max. diameter 69mm). Like all Slinks these two toys come in SuperSoft Bronze and Graphite. I have been asked numerous times why you can’t get it in Firm Black. Since the firmness and thus rigidness of a toy increases with the thickness, the bendiness the Slink needs to meander through the guts would be lost

Detail of the Vortex Helix-Style Ridge running around the Body

Playing with the Ripple & Vortex Slink

Since I already talked at length about the Slink as a depth toy, I want to focus on how the specific design features impact the play. First, the Ripple Slink. One of the “disadvantages” of the smooth Slink is, that it just smoothly flows inside the bowels. While this is good to train the butt, most of the feeling is lost. The Ripple fixes that because the grooves add a bit of friction. Not so much that it would be difficult to insert because they are not too deep and the edges are well rounded. But the sensitive nerve endings inside the guts and sphincter notice them. So it is a more “fun” sensation getting fucked with the Ripple compared to the smooth one. The grooves also divide the body a bit into sections which are points where it bends easier compared to the “solid” smooth body. This makes navigating inside twisted passages easier.

Detail of the Ripple’s Grooves

The Vortex also introduces a new sensation. When twisting the toy, the helix-like ridges create an intense sense of motion rarely felt on other anal toys. Especially deep inside the guts it is a weird, unusual though by for most of my testees not unpleasant sensation. While the Ripple’s bendiness is good for exploring willing guts, the Vortex is ideal for bowels which are a bit challenging. The ridges add sturdiness but if you hold it loosely, it will twist in the way of lowest resistance and find its way. The inner organs are a delicate body area so please always be cautious! A bit of force is ok with the Vortex, too much can cause serious injuries! Also, through the large surface area, the Vortex needs considerably more lube than the smooth or Ripple Slink!

Detail of the Slinks‘ Base with the Size and Product Name

While both toys are great to explore ones hole deeper, since they are too thin on the deeper end to prepare for real depth fisting. They are more toys to straighten the bowels out, accustomed them to the sensation of mechanical stimulation which ultimately makes relaxing easier during deep fisting. For stretch training the gateway to the guts, I recommend the Long Neck which I will be reviewing in a few weeks.

Where to buy?

When I am in the USA or Canada, I get my SquarePeg toys from Mr S. The Slink Ripple costs between $119.95 and $159.95 and the Vortex Slink $195.95. In Europe, Regulation has the widest selection and actually lowest price of SquarePeg toys. The Slink Ripple costs between £119.99 and £159.99 and the Slink Vortex £159.99. Regulation carries most toys only in SuperSoft Bronze. If you want them in a Graphite, add the Bronze to your cart and write in the checkout notes you want it in a different color. They then will order it for you which usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer VI –Mr Hankey Textured Plugs

You – my readers – have a weird relationship with anthropomorphic anal toys: The more I review them, the thirstier you become for more info. So as soon as I published the review of the Dragon and XXXCalibur from Mr Hankey I got inundated with review requests for their other toys. This little piece is basically a shortlist of the most requested models:

Prince Charming: The heavily textured head with a large rim in combination with the knotty shaft promise fun somewhere between agony and ecstasy.

Solatok: Less a plug, more a dildo it seems ideal for fucking. The scales on the back will torment the prostate while the large knot will bust the sphincter.

Butt Bolt: This one looks like a real bruiser. A large tip promises an intense entry, the ridges on the side will stimulate/ tire out the sphincter intensely and the large different between the maximum diameter and the neck will be a good approximation of a fist punching a hole.

This list is a great example of your great taste – or how well you know what makes the hungry ass pig in me happy. So as much as these toys are on my Christmas list for reviewing them for you, as much am I and my testee panel looking forward to the testing process if I should get them one day.

As with all items in the little gift guide list Mr Hankey’s toys are premium quality, being hand crafted out of top notch platinum silicone which is reflected in the price. The Prince Charming and the Solatok are available at Mr S for prices between $129.95 and $184.95 depending on the size while at the moment the Butt Bolt is only available at Mr Hankey directly for between $69.95 and $144.95. But if they are as good as the ones which are currently traveling through Europe bringing joy to my testees, they are worth their money!

The End of Kinky Tumblr – A Personal Farewell

It has been three weeks since Tumblr announced that they would be banning NSFW content on their platform from December 17th on. Until this point the platform was one of the largest – if not the largest – collection of porn in human history. But the moment the news hit the scene, not only a ludicrous discussion about freedom of speech and censorship started[i] but people back-up their data and deleted their blogs. The exodus of active users, one star reviews in the app stores and steeply dropping numbers of blogs and app downloads apparently hit Tumblr so hard that they were forced to release a spurious statement that they would not be deleting but instead hiding stuff and that people can still leave their content on the platform – though nobody could see it anymore. Naturally this did not stop people from leaving Tumblr. At this moment a number of different websites are competing for the users looking where to display and consume their porn elsewhere, but no major one has emerged yet.

Being a big opponent of Facebook’s policies, I never used any of their services, including WhatsApp and Instragram. I have been on Twitter for ages, first with a vanilla account and when I started to set up ToyTorture.com with a kinky account. Tumblr followed some time later when I realized that Twitter was not the best place to present kinky pics. 

Tumblr opened up a whole new world of kink to me. The aesthetic inspired me for pictures, the play setups gave me ideas which toys to get and the perversions sparked interests in trying out new things. It also quickly became an important social media channel for ToyTorture.com. Not only gave the large followership and reblogs my reviews a big exposure but the message and chat feature over time became the largest inbox for reader questions. Since this website is my love child, a single-person operation into which flows a lot of my time, sweat, tears and love, knowing that a lot of people read what I write and getting feedback from my readers means a lot to me. Tumblr helped with that.

Last but not least, the affiliate links for Mr S, Regulation and E-Stim Systems I posted under the posts created a little flow of store credit. It was always my plan to make ToyTorture.com an ad free website to keep it independent. Despite all the critic I get for “promoting” certain products and manufacturers through Desiderates and Christmas gift tips, etc. it is still my personal taste and my wishes as a private person, pervert and toy collector which influences the toy selection and not some corporation urging me to post stuff in order to make money. Because of that, ToyTorture.com actually costs me some money for the server and despite a little stream of review samples a lot of money to buy the toys I review. The affiliate programs gave me store credit help me to buy stuff people are keen in reading a review about even when I am not that interested in the toy that I would spend my hard earned money on it. With Tumblr dying, I am certain my affiliate income will drop and thus limit the range of toys I will be able to review.  

At the time when this blog post will be published, my Tumblr account is still active. I am astonished how many surprisingly sexual pictures are still visible to the public. But still… Tumblr feels barren these days. For years, the Tumblr app on my tablet was my go-to app when I was up WAY too early because of my insomnia. After the purge it is still a collection of hot pics but a lot is missing. It does not feel whole(some) anymore. Having “only” lost 25% of my followers and actually gaining new ones every day (probably flocking to the blogs which still have a decent amount of original pictures), it would probably still be worth to put content on there. On the other hand, the entire controversy spoiled my mood to post content there.

So I guess, I should delete my blog, taking a stand against SESTA and FOSTA and the frightening amount of sex-negativity and conservatism creeping into many societies these days by attacking Tumblr where it hurts them the most: Their ad revenue. To start the new year with a clean slate, I will be deleting ToyTorture.tumblr.com on January 1st 2019.

All the content I posted on Tumblr will probably surface somewhere else as soon as the dust has settled and a new major place-to-be for all the perverts will emerge. In the meantime, follow me on Twitter for content and the latest update where to find my smut. And if you are planning to buy something at Mr S Leather, Regulation or E-Stim System, take a detour over my website and click on one of the links in this article or the banners on the right sidebar. You comments, retweets and affiliate clicks keep ToyTorture.com alive. Thank you for your support and see you soon – where ever this will be.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer IV – Squarepegs Double Fist Plug

A – humorous – saying in fisting is “Go big or go home.” While I should stress that fisting is not competitive sport and everybody should progress in their own pace to the desired stimulation, there are some perverts who need it bigger, harder, faster. For whom getting their sphincter stretched is an insatiable thirst. For those – and maybe to a certain degree me – is the Squarepegs Double Fist Plug. With its massive diameter of a bit over 10cm, it is one of the largest plugs on the market and I cannot imagine how heavy it is. But since it is only 25cm in overall length, it is probably “comfortable” to sit on – if you can deal with the feeling of a completely filled and stretched rectum. I am not sure if I will ever be able to fit conquer this plug but in Graphite it will definitely be a nice and intimidating decoration piece in my playroom –though for $249 a rather pricy one.

The Squarepegs Short Fist Plug from Mr S Leather

For those who are looking for a little bit less of a stretch, take a look at the Short Fist Plug for $139.95 at Mr S Leather or the Monster Egg which are already a challenge but an easier one.

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

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

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

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

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

Detail of the Arms Tied Down on the Sides

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

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

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

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

SquarePeg Slink

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

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

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

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

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

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

Small Smooth Slink SuperSoft Bronze

Medium Rippled Slink SuperSoft Bronze

Vortex Slink SuperSoft Graphite

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