Kinklab NeonWand

Vendor: Regulation

The Kinklab NeonWand

Construction

Like almost all violet wands the NeonWand consist of two pieces: A power unit which has a socket on top for interchangeable electrodes. The power unit of this model is 23.5cm long and has an average diameter of approx. 45mm. Inside is a solid state power unit which means there are not moving parts like in traditional power unit. So moving the toy won’t affect the sensation delivery. The lower ¾ of the power unit is covered by a soft textured material for better grip. On top is a 12.5mm socket for the electrodes which is the diameter most violet wands use today so most electrodes from other manufacturers should fit. At the bottom of the power unit is a rotary control for the intensity and the 2.3m long power cord.

The NeonWand comes with four electrodes made out of glass and filled with a noble gas:  A comb shaped one and three rods with a mushroom head, a small probe head and a tongue head.

There are two versions of this toy: A white power unit with purple glowing electrodes or a red and black power unit where the electrodes glow red. The toy comes in a cardboard box outfitted with foam to store the electrodes safely. There is also a detailed handbook on how to use a violet wand.

The Electric Arc and Purple Glowing Argon inside the Electrode

Playing with the NeonWand

Violet wands work much differently than the TENS units I have reviewed so fare. The power unit is a Tesla coil which produces static electricity. The currency doesn’t flow through the body but an “electric arc” appears when the electrode comes close to the body. If the electrode touches the skin just warmth is felt. Since no currency is flowing through the body the violet wand can be used on almost all body areas (but the eyes which is an absolutely forbidden area!) safely. It is advisable not to use a violet wand for an extensive period of time at the same body area. Burns like sunburns can occur. I would actually recommend using a moisturizing lotion after using a violet wand to clam the skin.

Unlike TENS e-stim units violet wands don’t have stimulation patterns (more commonly called “programs”). Only the intensity can be adjusted. Depending on the electrode the sensation can range from a light tingling to excruciating pain. The NeonWand is not the most powerful wand out there but it is certainly powerful enough for an interesting scene.

As with all e-stim toys conductivity is the key to the sensation which is influence by three factors when it comes to violet wands. First there is the electrode’s conductivity. Most violet wand electrodes are made out of glass and filled with a noble gas; these are quite conductive. There are metal and conductive silicone electrodes out there which have better conductivity and thus stronger sensations. Second there is the skin conductivity which is influenced by many factors like sweat for example. Improving skin conductivity can be achieved by conductive gels, water-based lube or heavily moisturizing lotions with urea or zinc oxide for example. This can be used to creating a “ladder” out of conductive strips so the intensity keeps changing while you run the electrode over it.

The Four Electrodes which come with the NeonWand: The Comb, the Mushroom, the Probe and the Tongue

Third there is the contact area. This is where the different electrodes come into play. While the Probe and the Mushroom are just different contact area sizes which don’t change you can use the comb and the tongue creatively. Just twist and turn them to alter the contact area. All electrodes can be used to inflict sensations on conductive materials like a chain wrapped around the subs. The longer and thicker the chain the less sensation is felt so I recommend using only thin otherwise the power unit will not be powerful enough to induce a noticeable sensation. Generally speaking a violet wand is best used to sensation play or teasing e-stim sessions. Since you can move around the electrode quite freely sensations can be spontaneously induced on surprising spots of the body.

What is important to keep in mind is the material of the provided electrodes. As much fun/ agony are they are on “moist” body areas as the glans of an uncut guy or the anus I strongly recommend against inserting them into the body. The chance of them breaking is simply too high.

Conclusion: E-Stim toy for tickling and torturing with a dramatic visual effect.

Sling Suspension Straps

The Regulation Sling Suspension Straps

When I posted last week’s review of the Serious Toys Rubber Sling I have gotten a lot of questions about the leather restraints hanging in the background. So I decided to review them this week. When I announced the review on Twitter the guys from Regulation got in touch with me and said that the product has been discontinued which is a shame. Usually I don’t write reviews about products which are not available any more. But since I really love these restraints maybe this review will be helpful to kinkster who run across a pair of hand slings and wonder what to do with them.

Construction

The basis of the Suspension sling is a 64cm long and 4cm wide strap of saddle leather. On one end a large, welded D-ring is riveted using four rivets, on the other end a 4.5cm long leather loop using again four rivets is created. Between these two sections thick and soft padding covered by soft nappa leather is sowed onto the strap.

Detail of the D-ring at the top

Playing with the Sling Suspension Straps

The function principle of these restraints is pretty simple: Put a foot or a hand through the loop formed by the strap and tighten it. If you than put tension on the D-ring there is no way to get out of these. Through the thick padding and the fact that the force pulling on them is in line with the limb and not perpendicular like it is the case with a D-ring attached to a cuff-style restraint these restraints can be worn comfortable even with considerable tightening draft on them. These properties along with the sturdy build make these restraints ideal for any situation where pulling force is involved like in a spread eagle or for the wrists on a St.-Andrews-Cross. Another usage scenario are hogties where a lot of sensations are induced like tickling or bastinado. The movement will keep the bondage tight while the force distribution minimizes the injury risk. I personally use them in the sling. The unique combination of softness, sturdiness and easiness to hold onto makes them ideal to grab onto something and work things out physically when the sensations get too intense. In combination with the stir-ups (which I will review next week) they are ideal to lift oneself up from the sling and ride the fist in your own speed.

Detail of the clever fettering way through a leather loop.

One thing must not be forgotten to be mentioned here: Despite being called sling SUSPENSION straps they are NOT made for extended suspension. Putting the entire body weight on these restraints can cut circulation. If you are looking for suspension restraints I recommend these for the hands and these for the feet.

When buying a sling type strap pay attention to some important details. There are suspension hand straps out there which just feature a d-ring on each end. While basically you can do the same thing with them as with the Regulation ones reviewed here, the ones I own have a major advantage: Since the loop which forms the sling is wide the leather is twisted forming a smooth curve. Thus the padding is all around the wrist or ankle, unlike the two-D-ring-version where they are exposed to the edges of the stiff strap leather. So when you are planning on buying a two-D-ring-version pay attention that the edges of the strap are either padded or piped.

Conclusion: Simple yet clever and effective restraints.

Fleshjack Ice

The Fleshlight Ice Vagina (wich I bought beliving it to be a Fleshjack Ice Mouth…)

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

The basic form of the Fleshjack is the one of a big flashlight and the body made out of sturdy and premium feeling plastic. The Ice version I am reviewing here is made out of clear plastic, but there are also black, blue and silver options. The toy is 25.5cm long with the cap screwed on.

The upper half is 12cm long and has a diameter of 6cm at the top and 6.4cm at the end. It is textured with groves for easier grip even with lubey fingers. The top can be unscrewed to create different vacuum intensities. The lower half is 13.5cm long and has a diameter of 9.4cm. At the end there is a cap which protects the masturbation sleeve.

Detail of the Fleshjack’s Sleeve

The sleeves are made out of Fleshjack’s exclusive SuperSkin which takes up warmth easily and feels like the real deal when properly lubed up. Sadly like all silicone based materials dust sticks to it very well. With the Ice version you can choose between a mouth, a butt, a neutral and vagina (which I accidently because in my ignorance of female genitals I mistook it for a mouth…) exterior shape. On the inside all three sleeves are the same.

Playing with the Fleshjack Ice

Using the Fleshjack is quite easy: Apply loads of lube onto the (more or less) hard penis, unscrew both caps, stick it inside the sleeve and start moving the Fleshjack up and down. The suction intensity can be varied by the degree the top cap is screwed on. One thing to make the experience even more pleasurable is to let warm water run through the sleeve’s hole to warm the material. Also the moisture will increase the lube’s slickness.

Detail of the Exterior of a Fleshjack

As you might imagine the Fleshjack is a good toy for edging and milking. Since the interior of the sleeve has differently textured areas the best way to approach an edging is slowly work your way up through the sections, stroke the dick a bit with the texture and thus figure out to which texture the sub reacts best. Than start the game of tease and denial.

For a more direct control and connection to the sub I recommend taking the sleeve out and work it on the sub’s dick. This has several advantages: You can more precisely control the pressure, you can compress the sleeve also length wise which alters the sensation of the texture and you can combine it with a massager. Theoretically  you can apply a massager to the body or even use a special massager head Fleshjack attachment but most of the vibration is absorbed by the hard material (especially with the attachment which in my opinion is completely rubbish! Attachments I can endorse are the wall mounts for humping you Fleshjack in the shower [or the kitchen floor like a friend of mine does…] or all the fuck machine mounts I have tested so far). One of the meanest things you can do is put a finger vibrator into the top of the sleeve until it touches the glans for additional stimulation.

Detail of the Groves for better Grip

In both scenarios the transparent material added to the mindfuck of the sub who could see his dick being pleasured/ tormented inside the Fleshjack.

As already written the Fleshjack works best with loads of water-based (!)lube. I personally use Swiss Navy Waterbased Lube with my Fleshjack because it stays slick for a long time and isn’t too thick. Using silicone, hybrid or oil based lubes will at best discolor the sleeve, at worst dissolve it!

Detail of the Cap and Opening for the Suction Intensity

Cleaning the Fleshjack is easy: Disassemble the body, take the sleeve out and was it in warm dish soap water. Drying and reassembling it however is a bit of a pain in the ass. Wait until the body and the outside of the sleeve are dry and put the sleeve back into the body. Since unlubricated the sleeve is sticky this can be quite tricky. Then put the Fleshjack upright with both caps off and wait for the water inside to drop down/ evaporate. Putting the caps on before the sleeve is entirely dry will result in mold!

Especially after my Anal Toys 101 I have been inundated with questions about anal toys for beginners and extended wearing.

Detail of the Tips the Stimulate the Prostate

Playing with the Toy

Especially the puppies amongst you will recognize the shape. It is basically the iconic SquarePeg tail with just the plug part. So if you like the feeling of the tail inside your butt but the tail part kept you from wearing it 24/7 this is the plug for you.

Wearing the plug 24/7 is actually one of the unique properties of this plug. Regardless if you take the soft or hard material version due to the flowing round shape the plug feels comfortable to be worn over extended periods of times. The steep and soft round shape of the head it is a weary good toy to stretch and train a sphincter.

For Color Comparison
Left: SquarePeg Acorn in Supersoft Bronze
Middle: SquarePeg Egg Plug in Supersoft Graphite
Right: SquarePeg Reamer in Firm Black

The large base prevents the plug to accidently slide into your ass even though the smooth head entices the sphincter to suck the plug in. When walking around an interesting dynamic happens: The larger the plug and thus the mass in the head it will start to move around a bit. This moving momentum get transmitted to the tips at the end of the base which than will stimulated the part of the prostate at the perineum. Of cause the same effect can be created with a sub tied down and a massager added…

Where to buy?

The SquarePeg Egg Plug can be bought at Regulation London for £39.99 to £119.99 or Mr S between $29.95 and $119.95 depending on the size.

Regulation 10 Speed Wand Massager with Head

Vendor: Regulation

The Regulation 10 Speed Magic Wand Massager with the Head Attachement

Just like with the Mr S Quick Choking Collar I am reviewing two toys which simply belong together: The 10 Speed Wand Massager and the matching head attachment. The pics show the cord version because my wireless one is currently lent out to a friend.

Construction

The 10 Speed Wand Massager comes in classic black with a red accent that connects the head with the body. The head has a diameter of 6cm, is 6.2cm high and is covered by a soft, textured cover which can be taken off for a more intense stimulation. It has the same head size as most wand massagers so you can almost put any available accessory on this wand.

The body 24cm long and its diameter decreases from 5.9cm to 3.4cm. At the end there is a little tulip shaped thickening for a comfortable and secure grip. The body is made out of black, sturdy plastic which has a quality feel. In the middle of the body there is a control panel with two buttons: One for on and off, anther for the speed setting.

Detail of the Head with its Textured Cover

The Wand Massager Head follows the T-shape design of the popular Humming Bird attachments with a tube diameter of 3.6cm but is it made out of soft black silicone. On the inside of the tube there three rows of small silicone spikes followed by curved ridges and on the other side there are four rows of perpendicular ridges. Below the tube there is a foot which allows the attachment to be securely put on all wand massagers with a 60mm diameter head.

Detail of one side of the Head Attachment’s Texture

Playing with the Toy

The most often used purpose of the massager is obviously edging and milking. Depending on the effect either focus on the glans, especially the frenulum (for milking), or the shaft, the balls and especially when you are edging with your hand the perineum. On the glans the different speed settings do not really matter. Even the lowest setting will push most uncut guys over the edge pretty soon. On the other body parts finding the right setting can mean the difference between “I’m going to cum.” and “PLEASE! Let me FINALLY get released!”

Detail of one side of the Head Attachment’s Texture

For milking the head attachment is pretty nifty. Put it on the massager’s head, lube the dick well, put plenty of lube on the inside and slide it over the dick. I would recommend not too slick water-based lube (silicone lube will disintegrate the toy!) for it; I use Swiss Navy for it. Than slide it over the dick and depending on your intention and degree of sadism slide it up and down the shaft somewhere between tenderly and vigorously. What sets this head attachment apart from other Humming Bird style ones that the texture on the inside is not soft and round but rather “spiky” which add an interesting sensation on the glans. Depending on the sensitivity and the side you use it can almost be agonizing. Depending on the dick size I recommend holding onto the attachment while sliding up and down. Otherwise it might come off.

Beyond CBT the massager is good for intensifying existing toys. Most toys – like clamps or ball stretchers – lose their sensation infliction potential after some time because the nerves get numb. So adding a bit of vibration there can wake the nerves up. For this kind of play I recommend removing the head’s cover to the vibration power gets directly transmitted to the toys. Especially in the higher setting this works great with firm ass toys. The vibrations get transmitted into the sphincter and ideally onto the prostate which drives most bottoms nuts in a good way. And since it is wireless you can travel around the sub’s body “reactivating” all the toys you put onto him.

Anal Toys 101

Finding the right anal toy and keeping it in good shape so it lasts for a long time can be a bit of a challenge. In this 101 I talk about what to consider when buying an anal toy and how to care for it properly.

Buyer’s Guide to Anal toys

There are many aspects to consider when choosing an anal toy. Especially when you are buying your first one and have not developed personal preferences yet, giving each aspect some thought is a good idea because a good anal toy is quite an investment. But if chosen wisely will bring you fun for years to come.

Material

Deciding out of which material your new anal toy is going to be made is the first step when choosing it because the material properties impact many relevant aspects of anal play.

Material composition

This is the most important aspect of choosing a toy. In the old days before EU regulations and custom testing imported goods, toys which I would not have recommended to put up your butt were widely available!

The inside of your colon is basically one big mucosal that will happily absorb whatever the lube (especially water-based lube) washes out of the toy’s material. Thus I recommend only purchasing toys which are manufactured in the EU or USA where dangerous plasticizers like phthalates or lead as a catalytic agent for silicone are forbidden. Just to be safe look for the label “Platinum Silicone” or “Phthalates Free” when choosing a toy. At the end of Buyer’s Guide there is a list of manufacturers I personally source from if you want a recommendation.

Lube

Not every lube can be used with every material. Some lubes will actually cause to disintegrate your toy. Thus depending on your lube preferences you have to choose the toy material.

The following chart shows which lube can generally speaking be safely used with which material. Of cause individual material composition can lead to unexpected effects. If you want to err on the side of safety only use water-based lube.

The Square Peg Charlie Horse Wiggly in Supersoft Bronze from Regulation

Firmness & Surface Smoothness

While glass, metal and wood are always hard, the plastic ones come in different degrees of firmness. With the latter group the thickness is also influenced by the thickness. The thicker a toy the harder it will feel.

Which degree of firmness is good is depends on the usage situation. For training your ass a softer toy is better because it adjusts a bit to the sphincter. For wearing a toy for an extended period of time a harder material is better because the sphincter will adjust to the form of the toy which is more comfortable in the long run. Also with hard surfaces the likelihood of skin folds and thus a pinching sensation decreases.

The firmness also impacts the structural integrity. The firmer the toy the easier it will stand up by itself. This is especially important then you want to ride or sit on a toy. If it is too soft, it will collapse.

Furthermore the surface structure is important. The smoother the surface the easier the toy glides in and the easier it will be to clean.

Pervertables

A quick word on pervertables: There are wooden, metal and glass objects which are not made for anal play but are being used for it, most prominently baseball bats or batons. Before inserting them into your rectum make sure they are deburred and 100% smooth! Especially which with wood it is imperative that is has a sanded and treated surface! Getting a splinter into your colon is always a reason to rush to the ER! As for glass objects, especially vases and bottles: Keep them out of your ass! The glass used to anal toys is a special type of glass that almost never breaks and glass anal toys are always solid. The injuries caused by shards of broken glass inside your rectum can be lethal!

The Bolder Stoll Doll from Regulation

Toy Form Factor

There are two major form factors: Dildos, which are compared to their thickness relatively long shafts with a tapered ending for easier insertion, and plugs, which are shorter and between the maximum diameter and the base taper again so they can stay inside the butt.

Dildos

Dildos are probably the oldest sex toys humans invented. Stone penises as old as 28.000 years have been excavated. They induce a friction sensation on the nerve endings inside the sphincter while sliding in and out and at best hit the prostate. Depending on the glans’ shape there can be some stretching sensation.

Dildos come in two varieties. The first one are realistic dildos. They mimic the penis shape of humans, animal or anthropomorphic beings. This means the shaft is textured with veins which intensify the friction and thus the sensation. At the bottom end most of the them feature a base shaped like balls. The second variety are shape dildos. They are bullet or torpedo shaped and lack natural texturing.

The Square Peg Depth Probe from Regulation

Somewhere between dildos and plugs are shape dildos which consist of a series of bulges. The most extreme form of this form are anal beads. They are a series of balls connected by a string or a tubes which are inserted into the ass and then slowly pulled out. Of cause these toys aim to create a stretching sensation rather than a friction one.

A special form of dildos are so call depth trainers, also commonly called colon snakes. They are long (at least 35cm long), made out of flexible materials and don’t have much texture; a depth indication scale at most. They are designed to seduce the second sphincter to gradually open up to prepare for deep fisting.  Since this sphincter is not used to physical stimulation and unlike the anus can’t be relaxed purposefully, training it takes some time. So don’t rush it!

The Oxballs Pig Hole Deep from Mr S

Plugs

The shape of a butt plugs is best compared to the bottom half of a sand clock. From the tip they gradually increase in diameter and then – depending on the plug – either taper again or go directly into a short neck which is attached to a base. Through the gradually increasing diameter the main sensation of plugs is a stretching one.  So plugs are good to slowly accustom to and train the sphincter to a certain diameter.

A special form of plugs are hollow or tunnel plugs. Their outside form is like a butt plug but instead of being solid they have hole in the middle. Through the opening in the middle the tip is dull. So even if you can take the maximum diameter of the plug you might not be able to take it or only after a long pre-stretching. The hole is useful for many things. Through it lube or other liquids can be poured or the closing function of the sphincter can temporarily be taken away. The plug also protects the nerve endings in the sphincter from friction. Thus hollow plugs are especially useful in combination with depth trainers. Such plugs shield the anus from the friction sensation allowing the bottom to focus on what is happening at his second sphincter. When the tunnel plug is made out of a stretchy material (and is large enough) it can be used to fist through it making a formally too small interesting again or put it over a standard butt plug to increase its size.

With the increasing popularity of pet play there is a growing market of tail plugs. Instead of a base an appendix mimicking the look of an animal’s tail (most common are dog and pig tails) is attached to the plug’s body.  When choosing a tail keep two things in mind: Don’t buy a too small plug section because if it slides in too easily it will also slide out easily causing you to lose the tail when walking or wagging. Furthermore the mass ration between the plug and the tail should not be too much off. The center of gravity should be at the plug otherwise there is also the danger of the tail popping out easily. Tails are also popular with switchers not into pet play. When fucking somebody the tail will develop an momentum which is transferred to the plug section which than stimulates the prostate.

Finding the Right Size & Form

The following factors determined first if you will be able to take the anal toy and second how much you will enjoy it.

The Domestic Partner Crack Attack from Regulation

Maximum Diameter

Usually 3cm to 4cm is a good size to start out anal play. As you progress to bigger toys I recommend going up in steps of 1cm to 1.5cm increased maximum diameter. This is enough of a challenge yet you get the satisfaction of conquering the toy after a couple of days to weeks depending on how thoroughly you train. I know that this is costly by trying to get a toy in for weeks and always failing is very frustrating!

Slope

The slope of a toy defines how quickly the diameter from the tip on increases.

Even though the sphincter at the anus can somewhat voluntarily be relaxed it still is a muscle humans cannot control completely. It needs to be seduced to open up and in order to establish a certain training level actually carefully (!) stretched like every other muscle. Thus generally speaking steeper slopes are better because they allow the sphincter to open up more gradually. Especially when you are a novice stay away from toys with large dull tips because it will just press against the sphincter and it won’t open up. But even with a well-trained ass you will encounter toys that diameter wise are not really a challenge yet you won’t be able to take due to a weird slope. Sadly there now way to know before the purchase with which toys this is going to be the case so please be prepared for one or two useless purchases.

At butt plugs there are two slopes to look it: First the one before the maximum diameter which I just talked about. The second one is the one behind it. It defines how easily the toy comes out again. When you want to train your sphincter a steep slope is preferable. Once inside you can slowly fuck yourself with the plug, enjoying the stretching sensation. If you want to wear the plug for an extended period of time a duller to non-existing slope is preferable because it makes involuntarily popping out more difficult. However please keep in mind: When keeping a plug in, the “warm-up” effect of pushing it in slowly fades so seducing your sphincter to open up and release the plug becomes increasingly more difficult when keeping it in for long.

The Square Peg Happy Hour from Mr S

Position of Widest Diameter

Especially when you progress in training the position of the widest diameter becomes an important aspect to keep in mind. If you stick with a steep slope and increase the diameter the location of the maximum diameter moves further away from the tip so you have to insert more length for the maximum stretch. Since the colon is a quite small body cavern you might not reach the neck or even the maximum diameter. From a psychological point of view this is bad when training because inserting a toy completely fills you with a sense of accomplishment and giving you an opportunity to rest. This is usually a boost of eagerness to train further. Constantly failing on a plug is quite demotivating.

Texture

The texture describes the surface of a toy beyond the material properties (see: Firmness & Surface Smoothness). Since texture increases the friction of a toy it makes the insertion more difficult. So a textured toy with a diameter you usually take easily might not fit afterall.

In the section about natural dildos I have already briefly talked about natural texturing. They comprise of veins, the molded glans and foreskin and when we look at anthropomorphic toys scales, etc.

Detail of the Convex Shape and the Heavily Textured Surface of Apollo the Chimera

On shape dildos and plugs these three texture patters can be found (in ascending order of intensity): Groves, bumps and ridges. Which form delivers the best sensation is very individual. But a good rule of thumb is: the higher the texture is risen the stronger the stimulation. This of cause means that these toys are meant for play when the hole is already relaxed and well played with so it is not about the stretching (sensation) but about teasing the nerves in the sphincter. Please keep in mind that this form of play can wear out an ass quickly so be prepared for the scene to end rather sooner than later.

Extra Features

Sometimes toys come with extra features for a more intense or varied play. The most commonly found extra are sucktion cups. They enable you to temporarily securely attach the toy to a smooth surface (tiles are best for it) using vacuum. This is nifty feature when you really want to ride at toy so it doesn’t slip away.

For training the sphincter or creating a feeling of being stuffed without being able to take large diameters inflatable toys are useful. Once inserted you can pump them up in order to increase the diameter. I recommend buying only inflatable toys with a solid core for easier insertion.

Detail of the Base with Suction Cup Feature

A less commonly found feature are cum tubes. At the tip of the toy there is a small opening onto which a tube is attached. At the end of this tube is a syringe filled with a cum like lube. If you pus the end of the syringe the cum is getting splashed into the colon simulating an ejaculation. As nifty and unique as this sensation might be, a cum tube makes cleaning and drying of the toy more difficult.

For added stimulation some anal toys feature a vibrating function. When you are using quite hard toys this sensation can also be achieved by pressing a magic wand against the toy’s base. Another added stimulation is e-stim. Please refer to my in-depth review of e-stim plugs here for more information.

Personal Recommendations

This is a highly subjective, certainly not complete list of brand and retailers where good anal toys can be found. From these I source my anal toys from because I trust them for their product safety and quality.

Caring for your Anal Toys

Cleaning & Safer Sex

From a Safer Sex point of view a toy should either be used only by one person or covered by a condom. While the first is unlikely if you are having an active “social” life, the latter is unpractical as soon as it comes to toys larger than an L size penis. So cleaning the toys the right way is essential.

To clean your toys after play fill the sink with water between 40°C and 50°C, add dish soap and let the toy soak for approx. 15 minutes. I recommend using dish soap without perfume or lotion because these additives are bad for rubber and some PVCs. If you have used very thick water based lube add salt to break down the lube. At the soaking scrub the toys with a soft brush and rinse the soap water off. As a first step of sanitizing fill the sink again with hot water, add vinegar-based cleaner (possibly organic because you want to shove the toy up your butt again) and let it soak for a quarter of an hour. The acid in the vinegar will also deal with most of the unpleasant smells. Rinse the toy off and let it dry. Finally spray the toy with a sanitizer. The agents in the sanitizer can make glossy surfaces dull so you might want to try it on the base where the blemished surface is inconspicuous.

With some materials other means of sterilization are also possible once the lube has been washed off.  Metal toys can be flamed or autoclaved; the latter is also possible with high quality silicone toys.

A common question is how to deal with discolored toys. Sadly this effect is irreversible and simply comes with ages of plastic toys. To avoid it, buy only black toys.

Storage

In order to have long lasting fun with your toys keep some simple storage rules in mind. Always clean the toys after using them. The lube or body fluids otherwise can foster chemical reactions which might harm the toy. The storage place should be dry and well ventilated especially when you are storing toys from different manufacturers or made out of different materials together. The toys must never touch! The different plasticizers used by different manufacturers and materials can cause the toys to dissolve when touching or the air being filled with them. If the process started (an area getting sticky or gooy) it is too late. Sadly the process is irreversible and sooner than later you have to throw away the toy. Especially soft toys should be stored upright (or in case of depth trainers loosely rolled up) otherwise they might get permanent creases.

This collar is the matching one to the restraints I reviewed a couple of weeks ago. The basis of the collar is a sturdy bridle leather body. Onto the body a folded, 6.7cm wide piece of soft garment leather is sowed so the collar can be worn for extended periods of time without feeling uncomfortable. On the Fetters version instead of the double layer leather there is padding lined with soft garment leather.

Onto the body the bridle leather belt is riveted. The length and holes right until the first rivet allows for circumference between 30cm and 54cm. The belt is closed with a roller buckle for easy handling. Behind the buckle there is a locking post to lock the collar onto the sub. There are four solid, welded D-rings hold in place by the rivets.

The Mr S version is available in black, grey, rad and blue while you can get the Fetters model now in eight colors from classic black and grey up to vibrant green.

Playing with the Toy

Like I wrote in article about collars this category of toys fulfils two purposes: The first is showing to the world belonging and attachment. Being so comfortable and well made I have friends who wear this collar almost all the time when they are not in the office. This collar is just wide enough to be noticeable and thus remind the sub that he belongs to someone else yet narrow enough not to be annoying and thus interfering with his tasks. The locking post adds a great psychological momentum because the sub is not able to take the sign of the submission the top has put on him off.

From the play perspective what sets this collar apart is the number of D-rings. With four there are ample possibilities to attach the sub to furniture or other objects or the other way round attach things to the sub. Keeping in mind that anything that pulls on the neck can strangle the sub the collar can be incoorperated into numerous bondage layouts. A D-ring is a good place to attach rope for elaborate rope bondage layouts. On a lazier and more stressful side of things four D-rings are just enough for a very intense hogtie using ankle and wrist restraints.

Conclusion: Comfortable and versatile bondage collar

The Oxballs Pig Hole

The Oxballs Pig Hole

Since I started reviewing anal toys the Oxballs Pig-Hole hollow butt plug was one of the toys I got the most questions about so I was more than happy when Uberkinky sent me a review sample of the XXL version.

Construction

The Oxballs Pig-Hole hollow butt plug is as the name says a tunnel plug. It starts out with a  very large base so it does not accidently disappear into a greedy ass. From a tapered neck the plug expands into a barrel shaped body and narrows for the opening  again. The end is a bit slant so you have a bit of a “tip” when inserting the toy into the ass.

The inside of the barrel shaped body has some grooves for added stability. The toy is currently available in five sizes for almost every experience level.

Size Largest Diameter Smallest Diameter Internal Diameter Insertable Length
Small 5.5cm 4cm 3.2cm 7.6cm
Medium 6.5cm 4.9cm 3.8cm 8.9cm
Large 7.1cm 5.5cm 4.1cm 10.2cm
XLarge 7.7cm 5,7cm 4.4cm 11.4cm
XXLarge 8.4cm 6.5cm 4.78cm 12.7cm

Playing with it

The most difficult thing with the Oxballs Pig-Hole is how to get it inside the ass. Despite the grooves especially the sizes on the fisting side collapse rather collapse than be pushed into the ass. The method is use is to roll and fold the plug as shown in the picture, insert the compact package and let is deflate inside the ass.

Once inside the Pig-Hole is one of the most versatile ass toys I know. The fact that it gives in more easily than a solid plug makes it good for training the sphincter to relax more easily. Simply pull out the plug a bit, enjoy the stretch the plug’s body induces and let the ass suck the plug in again after a while and try again. Another way of training is wearing the plug for an extended period of time. The soft material and flexibility will allow the sphincter to shift the plug in a comfortable position while still stretching it. In order to avoid accidents I recommend using a diaper or a stopper plug with the Oxballs Pig-Hole.

A more or less forcefully open ass of cause is ideal for a lot of more or less evil activities. When you take a size with an internal diameter just a little bit smaller than the top’s dick the tightness of the Pig Hol- will feel like plowing a virgin’s ass. The grooves inside the body furthermore add stimulation. Some testees even used the Pig Hole as a masturbation toy. Naturally an open hole invites liquids to be poured into like lube or piss.

When it comes to fisting the Oxballs Pig-Hole is a very nifty toy. The stretchiness of the material in combination with the size of the internal diameter of the XXL version allows a hand up to a glove size 8 to be pushed through the opening. This has two benefits: First, there is not friction on the sensible mucosa of the sphincter which can cause unpleasant feeling. So the fisting scene can go on longer. This lack of friction is also useful when you engage in depth training with according toys. Since there is not friction (sensation) you can fully focus on relaxing your second sphincter. Of cause you can turn the plug inside out to torment the sphincter even more (for an even more intense torment I recommend the Oxballs Finger Fucker I reviewed some weeks ago). Second if your regular fist partner’s hand is your current training level, adding a few millimeter of material thickness can spice up that width training again.

Where to buy?

The Oxballs Pig-Hole can be bought at Mr S Leather for prices between $56.95 – $98.95 resp. at Regulation for £44.99 to £69.99 depending on the size.

The Oxballs Finger Fuck

The Oxballs Finger Fuck

I have rarely seen a toy creating so much buzz and selling out so quickly almost everywhere like the Oxballs Finger Fuck. So when Uberkinky asked me if I would like to review one for them I was quite excited.

Construction

The Oxballs Finger Fuck is a glove with approx. the European male glove size 7 and comes in black, red, blue and transparent. Being made out of Oxballs super-stretchy FLEX-TPR Oxballs Finger Fuck will fit almost every hand size; people with glove size 6 up to glove size 13 used the toy during the testing process. In order not to damage the toy please put it on careful and don’t force it too vigerously on your hand. Better pour some lube into the glove and swirl it around and adjust each finger separately for a snug fit. Another big advantage of the FLEX-TPR is that is it safe to be used with any kind of lube. Though for putting it one I recommend silicone lube because it is very viscose and won’t become sticky over time.

What sets this toy apart from other fisting gloves is the texture. While the palm area is covered with a shallow bubble pattern each finger is covered with a different pattern. The lower half of the thumb features lower profile bubbles like the palm, the upper half is shapes a big like a honey spoons with ridges running around a barrel which has a maximum diameter of 33mm. The forefinger features stronger raised bubbles. The top middle finger is shaped like a small dildo with a maximum diameter of 27mm on which’s top the glans is slightly coming out from under the foreskin. Around the ring finger a double helix runs. And the little finger’s texture looks like tire tread.

Playing with the Toy

Primarily the Oxballs Finger Fuck is a toy for anal play. The different patterns will stimulate the nerve endings of the sphincter in very different ways. When you have two Finger Fucks fucking the ass with two different fingers alternating will drive most subs over the edge. What is a bit difficult is using the ring and little finger individually because with most people the muscles of these fingers are too weak to fight against the draft of the stretchy material. The relatively small size (ultimately depending on the finger size of the wearer) makes it great even for beginners and experienced fistees enjoyed the teasing of the loose hole.

Speaking of fisting: Here the Oxballs Finger Fuck really shines. The material thickness makes the fister’s hand bigger yet especially for experienced bottoms this is part of the thrill. For one testee the Finger Fuck solved the problem of his experience level outgrowing the top’s hand size. Once inside the different patterns are again the piece de resistance – either when playing with the prostate or the second sphincter when it comes to depth play.

Besides anal play this toy is great for any form of sensation play. Gently running the different patterns across the sub’s skin can create quite interesting reactions. On the more CBT side of sensation play teasing the frenulum or the bare glans can drive a sub crazy, especially when he is uncut. Some testees liked the feeling so much they bought the toys and use it for jerking off. Because the Finger Fuck’s material is a bit sticky I recommend using silicone lube when engaging in such play.

Once used you simply can clean it with hot water and dish soap and spray sanitizer on it. I recommend drying it upright put loosely on top of a plastic bottle so the inside can also dry. While technically only disposable gloves are fulfilling safer sex standards when it comes to fisting, like cock sheath I can’t really see how any disease transmission can happen when the Finger Fuck has been thoroughly cleaned between being used on different partners.

Conclusion: Unique fisting and sensation play toy.
Pro Cons Where to get Price
Unique design A bit difficult to put on Regulation £42.99
Wide range of different sensations Little and ring finger difficult to be used individually
Easy to clean and when done so substitute for disposable gloves

Since I started reviewing anal toys a new group of readers has come to ToyTorture.com. Welcome to my pervy little project. I hope you enjoy what I am writing about when it is not about anal play. And maybe I spark your curiosity to venture out a bit in the interesting and diverse world of kink. But one of the questions I get the most from the new readers is why I always review such enormous toys. Its because these are the toys I own but I same somewhat smaller toys so this review is partly for the aspiring novice partly for the real fist connoisseurs.

Mister B All Black Bernhard

Mister B All Black Bernhard

Construction

The All Black Bernhard starts out with a conical tip. The top is 22mm wide and almost dull and expends up to 55mm over a length of 55mm. The shaft is textured with ribs of different width of heights leading to a diameter which increases from 44mm just below the tip to 59mm at the bottom. The last 4cm of is has no texture but is a little bit convex so it can work as a grip if you don’t have too lubey fingers.

The overall length of the dildo is 27cm. Since there is no base be a bit cautious when playing enthusiastically with it. It nearly disappeared in one of the testee’s rectum.

Playing with it

Ok, I have to admit, I lied a bit in the intro text. This toy is not really for the novice but for the little bit experienced. The dull tip makes it a bit hard to seduce an untrained sphincter to open up. But when you can take toys with a diameter up to 40mm you should be fine. The gradually increasing diameter of the “glans” is good to train the sphincter up to taking 55mm. Slowly (!!!) riding the shaft will accustom the sphincter to closing and opening up again. Taking time, relaxing, feeling the effect of the subtle ribs is a good training for relaxing the sphincter purposely. This skill is important when later switching to larger toys or even fists. But don’t get carried away by the awesome feeling too much and ride the toy more and more vigorously because with an untrained ass which is stretched to the max. this can lead to injuries.

Speaking of fisting: What is a danger for the novice hole is really hot for the well-experienced one. At the end of a fisting scene when the sphincter is really relaxed you can pick up this toy and work the ass over with it HARD. The ribs will stimulate the nerve endings for a unique experience. Be advised that the physical and stimulation stress can wear the bottom out fairly quickly so I recommend using this toy when the scene is almost over or in short intervals so the fistee begs for a relaxing fist as a break from an overwhelming stimulation.

Where to buy?

The Mister B All Black Bernhard can be bought at Regulation for £19.99.
