ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: HML Fetish Bondage Harness

The HML Bondage Harness

A couple of decades when most people were into BDSM, they were into all three pair of the acronym: Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission and Sadism & Masochism. People like me who just enjoy play (back than called “work”) without any aspect of being disciplined or submissive were the minority. This strict hierarchic attitude also reflected in the gear worn: One had to graduate from brown to black leather. Also there were different models for masters and slaves, the latter being equipped with anchor points for bondage. Especially in the last couple of years harnesses – especially chest harnesses – became a kinky fashion accessory (which despite not having the torso for it am also guilty of doing). I am definitely not a slave but I was always intrigued by the functionality of a slave harness.

So I got really excited when strolling through HML Fetish’s small yet exquisite store in Bremen I stumbled over a harness with D-rings. It follows the design of a traditional “slave” harness with jockstrap like straps around the ass and over the crack so the slave can only wear the harness and still be somewhat clad in leather. But what is more important for me are the D-rings: With one each on the shoulder and on the side on the level of the chest and the thigh the harness is an effective tool to bound a sub to a bed or just attach restraints when standing or walking in a bar. The many different fettering possibilities inspired me to combine a bunch of other restraints into a straitjacket-like bondage setup.

The HML Fetish Bondage Harness costs 295€ and comes in sizes from skinny to extra beefy. To learn all about this special piece of bondage gear, read my in-depth review here. If you want to do the all leather look as a slave/sub take a look at HML Fetish’s leather chastity harness.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: Mr S Ultra Blindfold

Blindfolds are one of the most essential pieces of bondage gear. Taking away the ability t see they not only render the sub helpless even without other restraints but by sharpening other senses make all sensations more intense and introduces the element of surprise into the scene. So robbing the sub off his sight is a common element in scenes. But finding a good blindfold is hard: Most of the thickly padded ones put pressure on the eyes making them uncomfortable to wear over extended periods of time; the more comfortable tend to let light or even glimpses of the surrounding through. So when people ask me which blindfold to buy, there is only one answer…

… The Mr S Leather Ultra Blindfold. Its unique construction with a piping of doubled leather and padding below the eyes prevents any pressure onto the eye and blocks out all light. Two straps with a double d-ring for adjustment and an elastic strap for fine adjustment keep the blindfold comfortably secured.  The Ultra Blindfold is so good, it has become my sleeping mask during flights. The padding below the eyes create little pockets between them and the blindfold’s front. This is due to not spoiling the aesthetics of the front with a seam. But it also has an unintended practical aspect: The pockets catch tears. So this blindfold quickly became a very personal item and piece of memorabilia. It was with me during my first single tailing, the first time getting flogged by two tops, my first sensation play where I laughed tears at the end… So when I lost my original blindfold after getting singletailed on a Friday at LAB (Kids, do not try to recreate that scene!) I was heartbroken. Naturally I replaced the blindfold instantly and treasure it ever since.

The Mr S Ultra Blindfold costs $58.95 and you can learn all about it in my in-depth review.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: Doxy Die Cast

The Doxy Die Cast House in its Case

When I started planning this series a few months ago it was clear that I had to include massagers. In mid-June I got my Doxy Die Cast and it instantly deserved this place in the list.

The Doxy is the most powerful massager I have come across so far; it is even more powerful than the original Hitachi Wand. With adjustable power setting it is good for edging – and even better for milking, especially with a head attachment. When I haven’t had a good scene in a long time, I just take out the Doxy and some e-stim and manage mind-blowing orgasm without a top (though it sadly can’t simulate the surrendering of control to a dom). With being so powerful the Doxy finally lives up to the with other wands’ euphemistic cover product description “massager”. It really provides relieve for my tense muscles after hitting the gym.

Detail of the Buttons

The Doxy comes in two varieties: Standard with a polymer body for £89.99 or the Die Cast with a body made out of a aluminum/ titanium alloy for £149.99. To learn all about the Doxy Die Cast, read my in-depth review.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: Oxballs Ball Stretcher

The Oxballs Nuttsling

Like four days ago I am talking not about one but three toys today: The Oxballs Nuttsling, the Unit X Stretch and the Trough. All three toys stretch the balls though all in slightly different ways.

The Oxballs Unit X Stretch

These toys are a good example that some of the simplest toys are some of the best. Simply put them around your balls (well, it does take some practice but once mastered it is really a matter of seconds) and enjoy the fun balls being stretched. When jerking they bounce either freely or – depending on how rigorously the meat is beat – against a surface adding a bit of CBT. This sensation alone could make me cum. But when it is time to shoot the balls are not able to come close to the body which prolongs the orgasm and makes it more intense. The Nuttsling is the most ridged with the strongest stretch. The Unit X Stretch is a bit more comfortable to wear over extended periods of time. The Trough adds a thick “tail” which stimulated the prostate on your taint which is perfect for edging. Depending on my mood I chose one of the three for jerking off. But what is certain: Almost every day I am using one of them!

The Oxballs Trough

When it comes to ball busting and squeezing the Nuttsling and Unit X Stretch are also quite handy: The create a natural “grip” section and keep the ball together and exposed for precise impact.

The Nuttsling and Trough have sadly been discontinued but the Unit X Stretch can still be bought for $24.95. If you are interested in my thoughts on the toys, read my in-depth reviews of the Nuttsling, the Trough and the Unit X Stretch.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: Sheets of San Francisco

Water on a Mattress Cover from Sheets of San Francisco

Technically the products from Sheets of San Francisco are neither toys nor playroom furniture so one might think they do not belong in this series. Yet almost none of the things I have acquired and reviewed influenced the way I play more than these sheets.

In general BDSM tends to be a more or less messy thing: Putting a rubber gimp into strict bondage does not come without sweat leaking, heavy fisting requires loads of lube which might leak out of a sloppy ass – not to talk about the bursts of piss when the bladder gets stimulated -, wax and gunge play is an entire level of mess potential on its own, just to name a few. Since most people don’t have a playroom – let alone one with a drain in the floor – this mess happens in places where it is not convenient. For this reason play sheets out of various materials are made. But each material comes with its drawbacks: Rubber and neoprene needs extensive care and dissolve when exposed to oil-based lube, vinyl/PVC tears easily and tarps are not really sexy. All of them are hard to clean and dry afterwards.

Detail of the Fitted Corner

Despite having lived in a dorm with just a room to myself and my bed being my play area all the shortcomings – especially the cleaning and drying one – kept me from getting a play sheet – until Sheets of San Francisco came along. Their sheets feel soft like cotton so they are comfortable, they look like unpolished rubber, are resistant towards any kind of lube and wax, 100% water-proof, sturdy and fitted. So you don’t have to worry about anything – especially the sheets moving, exposing the surface below them – even when playing heavily on them. But the biggest advantage for me is the cleaning: After having played, carefully lift the sheet in all four corners so all liquids gather in the middle and simply throw it into the washing machine. It comes out almost dry and hanging it out to dry it almost looks like a cotton sheet so it is unsuspicious. This easiness makes these sheets so great. It allowed me to focus on the play and kept the worries about soiling and cleaning at bay which dramatically increased the play pleasure.

Sheets of San Francisco make these sheets in a number of different sizes and even offer pillow and duvet covers. If they don’t have what you need, simply get in touch. They will happily make a custom piece for you. If you want to learn more about these sheets, read my in-depth review.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: Fetters Handlock

Front of the Fetters Handlock

As I have already written in this series I like toys which are innovative, designed well and stimulate creativity and the play instinct. The Fetters Handlock scores on all three accounts.

Fettering both hands together like a ridged handcuff does seems to be a natural toy design. The more it is surprising that nobody else but Fetters thought about it. Being made by the iconic British manufacturer it is well made like all their toys (but the little bit of foam which can be seen at the edge of the holes punched for the straps), crafted out if soft, high quality leather which just smells great. With its thick padding the Handlock can be worn in long scenes. So when you put a padlock through the locking posts you can be certain they are going to stay on for a long time. I generally like locking posts because they add a big psychological element of inescapability. What I like even more than locking posts are D-rings. The more the better because each one is an anchor point for bondage.

Detail of the Locking Post and the D-Ring next to the Roller Buckles

The Handlock has five of them so the bondage possibilities are almost endless. I have used the restraints for a hogtie (they also fit around the ankles), in combination with a (bulldog) harness as a shoulder to wrist restraint, for restraining the hands above the head, connecting it to a parachute or a ballstretcher as a wrist to ball restraint and incorporating it into rope bondage. Just to name a few.

The Fetters Handlock costs £109.95 at Regulation London. To learn all about it, read my in-depth review.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: DeTails Flogger Set

The different colored handles of my flogger set.

Flogging is one of the most intimate and artistic yet difficult form of BDSM play. Quiet easy to learn its basic it takes a long time to master it and develop ones own style. Each set of flogger thus represents the personal preference of the top. Depending on if he likes it more stingy or thuddy, wants to meditate or punish, flogs single-handed or Florentine, the flogger are made differently. So each set tells a story about its owner. What all high-quality, individually made flogger tell is the story of craftsmanship with their braided knots and countless styles of woven handle covers.

My flogger set from DeTails

When I purchased my set from DeTails I chose the company for their value for money: Fitting my student budget I coud get exactly the flogger I wanted. Due to needing the right space and right play partner I rarely use my flogger. That saddens me because feeling and using this work of art is exhilarating. But when I do, I know it is going to be a mind-blowing experience.

When subbing none of all the toys in my collection makes me quiver in anticipation, pushes me to cry out of ecstasy or catharsis or give me an endorphin rush or give me an endorphin rush that even hours  after the scene keeps me from falling asleep like this set of flogger. When topping none of all the toys in my collection lets me physically and mentally connect with my sub. That’s why I love these flogger.

The price of a flogger depends on the tail’s hide, length and number. So it is best to talk to DeTails what you want and – especially when you are new to flogging – need before ordering. To learn about my set, read the in-depth review here.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: E-Stim System Electrodes

The Electrode Disassambled into its Five Parts

It’s only the third episode of this miniseries and I am already breaking its rules: Today I am not going to talk about one but two toys: The E-Stim System Medium Classic bipolar insertable electrode and their conductive rubber loops.

As its name already tells this bipolar anal (or for the few female readers vaginal) electrode is the most classic of E-Stim System’s premium insertable range. All electrodes from this collection share the same great qualities: They are well built out of premium materials, easy to clean, come with a lifetime warranty and through their layout can create the sensation of getting fucked with a wave-shape program. I like these electrodes so much that I actually own five of them but I like the Classic best. With its domed head and diameter of only 25mm inserting it is easy. The Medium has the perfect length for me and actually most of my friends so when sitting down on it the electrode presses against the prostate. So in addition to the e-stim stimulation there is the physical stimulation. The e-stim sensation can even be enhanced when using the Classic’s head as a monopole and a pad electrode on the taint as the counter pole so the currency zapps right through the prostate.

A Pair of E-Stim System Cock Loops

On several occasions I called conductive rubber loops THE e-stim electrode. Small, easy to use and to clean it is a good example how a simple toy can be one of the best. Put one loop around the base of the dick, the other around the balls and later the currency will squeeze the cum out of the ball when jerking off. Put one of them below the glans and with some training and the right program you can learn to cum hands free. For a real anal novice one can work as an anal monopole, the loops can be used for sensation play. Once used these loops stimulate creativity and the play instinct and that is what a good toy should do.

The E-Stim System Medium Classic cost £47. I reviewed the premium insertable several times so if you want to learn more about them here are the reviews of the Classic, Micro and Magnum, the Torpedo’s review and in the latest I talked about their new satin surface finish on the Stuffer. The conductive rubber loops cost £29 per pair and you can learn all about them in my in-depth review. Interested in e-stim play in general? Read my E-Stim 101!

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: ErosTek ET232

The Erostek ET232

I own e-stim power boxes which are more powerful and sophisticated like the E-Stim System 2b. But the ErosTek ET232 is still my favorite. It was the first power box I bought after getting hooked on e-stim after a weekend with YngMstrDetriot.

Despite smaller power boxes being available the ET232 is still compact enough to be a travelling companion. With 15 programs (from which I actually only use 5) firing on two possible channels it is plenty of fun in a small box. Being an analogue power box the stimulation is a bit smoother and a bit finer adjustable than digital power boxes. The most important aspect which makes this box one of my favorite toy is how easy it is to use: With just four rotary knows it takes only a minute to explain the controls to a top and then surrender to him.

The ErosTek ET232 costs $299 at Mr S Leather. If you are living in Europe I recommend ordering it from Regulation £335 due to possible custom problems when directly order in the USA. If you want to learn more about my favorite e-stim power box, read my in depth review here. If you are interested in e-stim in general, read my e-stim 101 here.

ToyTortures Top 10 Toys: Mr S Bishop Head Harness

The Mr S Bishop Head Harness with Eye and Mouth Cover Attached

The most often asked reader question sent to me is “What is your favorite toy?” I always answer this question with a counter question: “For which form of play?” This is the only good answer because there can never be THE single best toy ever: An e-stim box without electrodes is useless. A ball stretcher can’t give the feeling of a deep thuddy impact. Nipple clamps can’t fetter a sub.  To answer the question at least a bit I decided to start this miniseries on my Top 10 Toys. The list is highly subjective and based on my personal preferences and play experience. The position on the list doesn’t mean that on toy is better than the other; I actually randomized the order.

The Mr S Bishop Head Harness without Any Attachements

My first favorite toy is the Bishop Head Harness from Mr S Leather. I have a preference for well designed gear and the Bishop Head Harness pushes all the right buttons with different mouth pieces, an eye cover, several D-rings and many straps for fine adjustment. Especially these straps make this head harness one of my favorite toys. Kneeling in front of a top and having the head harness slowly tightened around your head, feeling the gentle touch of soft leather and smelling its rich scent is such a sensual experience. Once fettered it is comfortable to wear and looks stunning on a sub.

The Bishop Head Harness costs $379.95 and is a Mr S Leather genuine design. If you want to learn more about the Bishop Hear Harness, read my in depth review here.
