John Thomas Toys is a good example how you, as my readers, influence what I review on this platform. Over the past few years, a larger number of silicone (fantasy) anal toy brands have been founded. Way more than I can keep track off. And sometimes, even a big brand slips below my radar (after all, ToyTorture.com is a hobby, not a 9to5 for me). So when over the course of the past few months I have been getting more and more messages about John Thomas Toys, I decided to include this brand as a first in this anal toy special.

The John Thomas Toys Beastli, Slinky, Ramsta and Conka

Construction

Like I have already written in the intro, John Thomas Toys only manufactures toys out of platinum silicone. In the past years, this material has become the material of choice for me and made me to replace ALL my vinyl toys for silicone ones. Platinum silicone is 100% body safe and hypoallergenic. The surface is super-smooth making it hard for bacteria to linger and the toys easy to clean: Soak them in warm dish-soap water, if necessary use a soft brush to get lube residues off, dry, sanitize and store away. What some consider a draw-back is that you must not use silicone lube with platinum silicone because the silicone oil in it will dissolve the silicone. As an avid anal player who only uses water-based resp. powder-based lubes like vetgel or XLube and very rarely Crisco, this limitation does not really affect me and to be frank all my other play partners. In order not to expose the toys to plasticizers that could harm them, stores them in a well ventilated place without touching other toys, especially rubber or vinyl/ PVC toys. There have been (anecdotal) cases of different silicone toys effecting each other but the reactivity at room temperature of properly processed platinum silicone is very low so it is highly unlikely.

So much what is true for all platinum silicon manufacturer. While most companies in this industries offer almost a plethora of customization possibilities, John Thomas Toys takes a different route: They design the toys in the UK and manufacture them in the USA. This means, unlike other companies where you have to wait for weeks and months, their stock is ready to be dispatched immediately.  Drawback is, what you see on their website is what you get. Colorwise this means all toys come in black and usually in one or two other colors/ pattern. You can choose between soft and medium firmness, which – to be frank at Shore A15 and A20 is more a medium and firm. All toys come with a vac-u-lock home which makes them easier to navigate when playing with a partner (simply stick one finger in it) or enables a wide range of nifty accessories like handles, suction cups or fuck machines when you play on your own.

Detail of Slinky’s Softly Flowing Texture

Beastli, Slinky, Ramsta & Conka

Generally speaking, John Thomas Toys makes toys for texture aficionados. Almost all of their toys are covered in grooves, ridges, bumps and drops which make for an intense stimulation of the anus and the prostate. Naturally these toys are not for compete novices because the texture makes these toys harder to take than like-sized smooth counterparts. So either pre-stretch properly or choose a size smaller than you would usually do. However, some of the toys are tamer than they might look at first glance.

 

Detail of Beastli’s Curveted Rigdes

Beastli is the most intense of the four toys in this review. Starting out with a dullish glans textured with two rings of bumps and a considerable glans rim drop, it starts out with a bang for the anus and the prostate. The shaft’s basic shape is a steeply tapering, slightly convex cone. But this shape is actually hard to spot because the shaft is heavily textured. Five curveted, steep and thick ridges divide the body in six segments. Between these segments the surface is not smooth but covered in small grooves and bumps; it almost looks like elephant skin. At the back of the shaft runs a thick ventral groove from just below the glans all the way to the bottom. All of this texture makes the Beastil the perfect toy for riding on your own. While the diameter gradually increases, your ass opens up over time more and more to take the next ridge until you hit the base. Since none of the texture runs perfectly perpendicular, the Beastli is also a good toy for getting fucked by a partner. Twisting the dildo inside the hole unleashes a completely new set of sensations because feeling the curvature of the ridges move inside the hole is a unique sensation neither my testees nor I have felt before.

Detail of Slinky’s Tip and Texture

Compare Beastli, the Slinky is a surprising soft and gentle toy. It has actually become my top recommended toy for bottoms starting out with texture play. At the top there is a long and smooth cone-shaped glans that softly opens up the sphincter. The maximum diameter of this toy is only about 5% larger than the glans diameter. So if you can take the glans, you can take the rest of the toy. The shaft is texture with smoothly rising and relatively steeply dropping ridges. These ridges go all around the shaft. There is not ventral groove or other lateral texture. This means then a top twists the toy in order to encourage the anus to open up more, no texture will irritate this delicate body area causing it to tense up. The sensation of having Slinky more or less rapidly enter and leave the anus is more of a gentle message. So it looks tougher than it is actually is.

Detail of Ramsta’s Tip and Texture

This also accounts for the last two toys in this review. Despite being very different in basic shape – Ramsta beiong a dildo and Conka a plug – they share the same properties. Ramsta starts out with a perfectly cone-shaped, slightly elongated tip. From there on the shaft slightly increases in diameter till the base. Just below the tip a ring of six half-dome bumps with a diameter of 18.5mm and a height of 14mm goes around the shaft (all size for my size large). There are seven of these rings which are staggered so in the gap between two bumps there is a bump in the ring below. The gaps are filled with two 10mm x7mm bumps above each other. Since the diameter increases further down the shaft, the gaps between the bumps increase. To be honest, taking the first ring of bumps is a challenge. The individual bumps are quite steeps and the relatively large gaps between them are not really encouraging the sphincter to open up. So a good pre-stretch is necessary! But once inside, the bumps are so close together that they more feel like a bumpy surface than individual peaks. Yes, the sensation of having Ramsta vigorously drilled into your ass and quickly twisted is intense. But not nearly as intense as you might guessed/ feared from looking at the dildo. The sensation becomes more intense the further you go down the shaft because the gap between the bumps increases.

Conka’s Vac-U-Lock Hole as an Example for the Feature on all John Thomas Toys

With the Conka is about the same game. It looks intense but then actually surprised how gentle it was. The almost perfectly cone-shaped body is covered in staggered rows of four cone-shaped bumps. While at the tip there are two rows of small ones, over the following six rows the diameter only slightly increases so there are no gaps. The gaps between four last big bumps is filled with two small bumps. When I looked at the toy, I guessed it would be heavy to take. But the bumps are so evenly distributed without gaps, they feel and behave like a textured surface with. The sensation intensity between Conka and Ramsta is about the same as between Slinky and Beastli. The Conka gives a nice, intense massage when fucking or twisting inside the hole.

Where to buy?

John Thomas Toys only sells their toys directly through their website. The models cost between £39.95 and £229.95 depending on the shape and size. When you want to purchase one of the models, I highly recommend searching for them on John Thomas Toys’ website to see if they have an exciting color for this particular toy in stock. Mine are all black but for the bunch I am going to get, I will most definitely be more adventurous colorwise.

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

The Tickler and the Spike are the latest varieties of the ever growing Slink family from SquarePeg. First launched in 2011 as a “plain” depth toy, now there are four textured and two smooth versions out there. So let’s see if those two make their siblings proud.

The SquarePeg Slink Tickler & Slink Spike

Construction

The Tickler follows the basic shape as all Slinks: At the bottom there is an oval, 20% larger than maximum stretch base which fits well between the ass cheeks. Into the base’s rim is the toy’s name embossed. 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 unlike other Slinks is not round but oval measuring 64x51mm and sits perpendicular towards the base. Over the length of 420mm the body tappers in very long cone to a pointy yet rounded tip. The entire body is loosely covered with about 5mm high and 18mm wide round bumps. Looking at the overall length of almost 500mm, the Tickler is just a bit shorter and thinner than the MDL size original Slink.

Comparison of the Two Tips

The Spike has a different shape than all of his brothers. Out off the 430mm overall body length, the first third is cone-shaped and tapers from a 12mm diameter tip to an oval shape of 53x64mm. Over the rest of the length it only gradually increases in size to a maximum diameter of 64x72mm. Just below the middle of this section lies a 60mm wide cluster of bumps. The rim at the end of the shaft features an Acorn-like bulge, though it is thinner and just 2mm high. Due to this bulge, the base is a hybrid of the Acorn’s dullish transition from body to neck and the Slinks’ smooth tapering transition from neck to base.

Like all SquarePeg toys, both are made out of supersoft, high quality platinum silicone which is 100% body safe, super-smooth and bendy. Also it is easy to clean: After playing, wash the toy with warm soap water, dry it, sanitize it and it is ready for play again, making it ideal for safe use during orgies. Because the silicone oil in silicone and hybrid lubes disintegrates most likely even the toys platinum silicone, only use water and oil-based lubes with silicone toys like the Tickler or Spike.

Playing with the Slink Tickler & Slink Spike

Depth play is one of the most delicate forms of anal play. Once you leave the rectum the colon is covered in sensitive mucosa which when being exposed to tactile stimulation causes the body to tense up. Because of this the Slink has always been a toy for the more depth-savvy player because the “pointy” tip easily bends away when colon tenses up, making entry into deeper areas very difficult. The Spike addresses this issue a bit. While the first 50mm of the toy shares the extreme bendiness of his brothers it then is a bit stiffer and thus easier to navigate. Both the steepness of the tip and the body are great for gradually opening up the second sphincter. Yet still, the Spike is a toy for a bit depth-experienced player due to the body’s diameter.  The Tickler is thinner but the “sudden” added girth of the bumps can cause an untrained colon to tense up, making it difficult at times to progress deeper compared to other Slinks.

Detail of the Tickler’s Texture

BUT: For the depth experienced player, the Tickler has many things to offer. First, even considering the bendiness and length that makes all Slinks difficult to handle on your own, the Tickler is actually the first Slink I found useful for selfplay. The oval body shape gives a sense of direction when navigating depth. You can slowly twist, turn and stretch until the tip finds an angle to slip through. Due to the bump relatively close to the tip this can be an unexpected intense but rewarding sensation. The bump also adds rigidness so the tip does not bend as easily as other Slinks, making it an easier toy for opening up the transition from rectum to colon.

Second, the bumps do to the colon what the SquarePeg’s Pegger range does to the anus: The bumps will stimulate the sensitive colon in ways none of my testees have experience before! The added girth of the bumps makes the toy feel considerably wider than it actually is leading to a stretch sensation comparable to a way higher depth play experience level. To take this sensation further, slowly and carefully twist the toy. This will force the oval shape out of a comfortable and less stretching position into the direct opposite. Of course, twisting will also draw extreme attention to the bumps. Slowly twisting, the bumps massage or tickle the colon, depending on how sensitive you are. Increasing the speed drove most testees to a state somewhere between agony and ecstasy and lead them to tense up. Luckily, being made out of such a soft material and the bumps being very smooth, the chance of even a very “active” sub being injured is very low.

Detail of the Bump Cluster on the Spike

Like the Tickler, the Spike is more for the experienced play. The huge shaft is MASSIVE due to silicone’s weight. Being stiffer than other Slinks in theory it is a tad bit easier to handle. But the weight requires two hands to wield it. Doing that crouching and with lubey hands is a challenge; the toy itself does not stand up.

So better get a partner to insert the Spike into your rectum and colon. Spike’s unique shaped compared to the other models make it a perfect training tool for taking a hand deep. The wide shaft stretcher the colon and prepares it for the sensation of something big moving inside it. Furthermore, the relative stiffness while preserving much of the supersoft silicone’s bendiness helps straighten the colon out a bit. Not forcefully but nudging it in the right direction.

The bump cluster is a little bit of a double-edged sword: It is fun to stimulate the anus with it, especially when twisting and turning. Due to the body’s oval shape, this movement will also train the second sphincter to open up more easily. Depending on the bottom’s anatomy, the bumps can also stimulate the second sphincter and this is a huge challenge for most bottoms! Yes, the bumps are well rounded and look shallow. But on these sensitive body areas the stimulation can quickly become too intense. Some depth-savvy testees theoretically could have taken the Spike deeper but the stimulation was too intense. In the end, it is an acquired taste that can be trained over time.

Comparison of the two Necks and Bases

Compared to the bumps, the bulge at the end of the shaft is almost negligible. When the anus is exposed to this stimulation, there are much stronger stimulations felt down the colon so the little edge is not noticed. However, this added kink helps the Spike stay inside when taken completely. A “standard” Slink neck-body transition would be too gentle to keep the heavy Spike locked inside.

Where to buy?

When you order from Europe, you can get the Slink Tickler for £149 or the Slink Spike for £229 at Regulation. In the USA, Mr S sells the Spike for $229.95; the Tickler is not available at their website yet.

SquarePeg 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

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.

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.

Ever since I started reviewing anal toys way back in 2015, I was focusing on anal toys either for width or sphincter sensation play. But quickly after I published the first anal toy review, I was getting questions about toys for depth play. Since I am more of a width than a depth fistee, it took some time to get enough testee and own experience to write this review.

The toys used for this review were the large Slink on loan from TeckPup and my own Depth Probe 1.25×20’’.

Construction

Despite looking quite different, both toys share the material. Like all SquarePeg toys, they are made out of platinum silicone which is hypoallergenic and easy to clean. While the Slink is made out of their SuperSoft Silicone and comes in their signature Bronze or stylish Graphite, the Depth Probe is available in Firm Black.

The SquarePeg Slink and Depth Toy with a Splitter in Graphite as a Color Example

The design of the Slink is a very long-drawn-out cone with gently rounded tip. After the maximum diameter it tappers like a butt plug and ends in a base which is approximately 20% larger in diameter than the maximum stretch, so the entire toy is not accidently swallowed by a greedy hole. As a special order the FlushCup suction cup can be added to the base of the Slink.

The Depth Probe is one long solid silicone hose. The top tenth is a bit thickened and has a dull tip while the bottom is shaped like a grip. On one side of the hose there is an inch scale to determine how deep the toy has been inserted yet.

Playing with the the Slink & Depth Probe

Depth play is one of the most delicate forms of anal play. Once you leave the rectum the colon is covered in sensitive mucosa which when being exposed to tactile stimulation causes the body to tense up. Since the colon is folded inside the lower torso, this kind of manual manipulation is necessary to “straighten” the colon out. So entering this sensitive part of the body with a large object like a hand is a real challenge, thus depth toys are a useful tool when starting out depth play.

Detail of the Depth Probe’s Thickened Tip

For getting into depth play, most testees found the Depth Probe more useful. Being made out of “firm” (still, you can tie a knot in my 20’’ long one…) silicone, it is a less floppy than the Slink and thus easier too control. The dull tip makes getting around the bends more difficult but the added stiffness opens up the colon for the tube which follows and straights the colon out more easily.

The pointy tip of the Slink on the other hand can feel a bit spiky on the mucosa. Also, the floppiness makes it a bit difficult to get around the first bend which connects the rectum and colon. But once inside the flow of the toy and the nimbleness makes it easier to get around the bends. The increasing diameter helps to stretch the tight colon over time to prepare it for a hand. When interested in self-play, the Slink with the suction cup is the best option. To insert an anal toy, most people crouch or squat which tenses up the colon; for sitting on and gently riding them, both toys are too soft. But attaching the Slink to a tile wall and wiggle the ass until the Slink finds it way, is the most relaxed way to stuff oneself deep.

Detail of the Slink’s pointy Tip

Especially when playing with the longest Depth Probe, a deep cleanout before play is a must. Usually a human’s large intestine is 1.5m long so reaching the small intestine with a hand or a toy is unlikely. But if this happens and bacteria from the large enter the small intestine, serious infections can happen. Another important safety advice is, regardless of the play style or D/s relationship between top and bottom, depth play should never be done forcefully! While a sphincter and the rectum can take a relatively hard beating especially after training, the colon’s mucosa stays fragile and tearing it can lead to serious, possibly lethal injuries and infections!

As already said, both toys are easy to clean so they are ideal to be used on different partners after a thorough cleaning. The smooth surface makes it difficult for bacteria to settle and the material can be autoclaved (after cleaning off any lube residue!) to be entirely sure. But also soaking it in hot water with dish soap and vinegar cleaner, letting it dry and spraying sanitizer on it, works well, especially when you want to use it again quickly.

Where to buy?

When I am in the USA or Canada, I get my SquarePeg toys from Mr S. The Slink costs between $69.95 and $369.95 and the Depth Probe between $59.95 and $169.95, depending on the size. In Europe, Regulation has the widest selection and actually lowest price of SquarePeg toys. The Slink retails between £69.99 and £354.99 and the Depth Probe between £79.99 and £134.99.

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

Construction

These are the first explicit depth toys in this Anal Toy Special, so naturally the Thick Worm and the Thick Stamen are on the longer side of toy design. Both have a usable length of 350mm. This enough to stimulate the second hole and penetrate it, yet with a little bit of practice both toys can be taken completely without much challenge. These are the only similarities the two toys have.

The Thick Worm starts out with a triangular head which makes pushing it in quite easy. The head is 55mm tall and smooth and tapers from 25mm to 42mm.

The SquarePeg Thick Stamen & Thick Worm

Below the head there is a 3mm drop. Over the length of 19mm the diameter increases again until there is another 3mm drop. These “scales” are very lightly textured with very shallow vertical grooves. With each scale the edge length of the triangular toy body increases a bit, slightly increasing the diameter up to 65mm at the last scale. The toy then flows into an oval base. The base can be equipped with two extra features: Either a suction cup which a friend who has one on his Thick Worm says is too weak to hold such a long and heavy toy or the SquarePegHole. This hole is a universal adaptor for the various fuck machine adapter standards. There is also a market out there for stand-alone accessories like suction cups or handles. So in my opinion you are better off and more versatile with the SquarePegHole.

The Stick Stamen on the other hand starts out with a round, long head that tapers over 72mm from 30mm to 56mm. After the maximum stretch, there is a smooth decrease in diameter by 5mm after which then to starts to expand again. This repeats 4 times until at the last of the 5 cones the maximum diameter reaches 71mm. Between this cone and the quadratic base is 52mm thick neck for resting when you have taken the entire toy.

Detail of the Thick Worm’s Triangular Head

As the name of both toys already implies, there are shorter and thinner versions of both toys available.

As in this review of heavy depth toys, I am surprised that SquarePeg offer these toys not only in their signature Supersoft Bronze which I have bought and the Supersoft Graphite but also in Firm Black. From the sensation side I can understand why they offer these toys in Firm Black because especially on a loose hole, they will feel more intense. But since firmness also compromises bendiness, I am not sure if these toys could work in that material (though, as an texture junkie, I am very intrigued to find out!). If you have any of those two toys in Firm Black, please let me know how they feel and work.

All three color options are made out of Platinum Silicone. Unlike other silicone types which are cured with lead for example, it is 100% body-safe, hypo-allergenic and easy to clean. Simply soak in warm dish-soap water, use the dishwasher or autoclave them after washing off the lube. For extra care, sanitize them to be 100% sure.

Like all silicone toys, these two should never be used with silicone lube since the silicone oil in the lube harms the surface and can destroy the toy. Water- and oil-based lubes are safe to use with both toys. Since different plasticizers can also destroy the silicone, they should be stored together with vinyl or rubber toys. If they have to be stored together, the place should be well ventilated and the different materials should not touch.

Playing with the Thick Worm & Thick Stamen

Being relatively thick right from the top and not too long, both toys – unlike other depth toys – are easy to handle. With light pressure the tip pops in and then keeps the toy upright when riding it. The body does not bend too much under pressure so it is a good toy for selfplay when you start to explore depth – sadly unlike the Slinks which are way harder to get in and control when you are inexperienced. Despite both shafts being bendy, they are rigid enough to be navigated, find their way inside the hole and go deep, again unlike the Slinks which tend to curl up inside the rectum when you are inexperienced.

Sensation-wise both toys are quite different and it is hard to tell which of the two the “softer” one is. The Thick Worm’s vertical grooves help to catch the lube, making it a toy for a bit longer ride. The subtle drop after each scale intensifies the friction sensation all ass toys create inside the sphincter during fucking. This makes the Thick Worm’s sensation a controllable simply through the speed it goes in and out of the hole. The triangular shape creates an unusual and surprising sensation when turned inside the hole and especially the second sphincter. Some of my testees and me found that the triangular head made it a bit easier for the toy to navigate inside the rectum and penetrate the second sphincter because there is a sense of direction.

Detail of the Thick Stamen’s Cone-Shaped Head

With the Thick Stamen however the sensation is quite different. Through the chain of cones, the stretch sensation is very prominent, especially at the second sphincter. Riding or fucking with the Tick Stamen is a serious of “pop” sensations which’s intensity can be controlled by the speed. Since there is not drop like on the Thick Worm but a steep yet soft slope, in slow motion the sphincter can gradually adjust to the change in diameter. Due to the neck, the Thick Stamen can be worn while moving around. It is an interesting sensation when the cones move inside the rectum and colon, massaging both sphincters. But the quadratic base, does not really fit well between the cheeks. One testee uses a rope harness to keep both toys in place because the Thick Worm’s body flows directly into an oval base which kind of fit between the ass cheeks despite being wide.

Where to buy?

If you are living in the Americas, there are two options got these toys. If you want the full range of colors and options, go to SquarePeg directly to get the Thick Worm for $169.95 or the Thick Stamen for $179.95. If you are in San Francisco and can’t wait Mr S Leather carries Thick Wormin Bronze and the Thick Stamen in Graphite. As a European, I get my SquarePeg toys from Regulation which sell the Thick Worm for £169 and the Thick Stamen for £179.

SquarePeg Blunger & Torque

Form: Complex Shape Depth Toy
Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: Graphite, Bronze & Black
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: SquarePeg (USA) & Regulation (EU)

Construction

The Blunger starts out with an almost perfect half-dome with a diameter of 45mm to softly open up a trained sphincter. After a short resting recess, it gradually extends to 67mm after which a 50mm long and 51mm wide neck follows. Just at the end of the neck there is a 61mm diameter bulge, a bit like around the edge of an Acorn. Now again gradually the Blunger widens softly yet steadily to the max. oval diameter of 80x90mm. Below the maximum diameter it steeply drops to 69x80mm. After slightly decreasing in diameter for 35mm there is another 3mm bulge until you can rest on the neck above the rectangular foot after taking the entire 280mm insertable length.

Left: SquarePeg Blunger, Right the Torque both in Supersoft Graphite

The Torque is a completely different kind of toy: It starts out with a small, slightly point yet rounded tip. From there on four thick, deep ridges – like a wood drill -meander around an in diameter increasing core. The ridges are disrupted by two small untextured “necks”, dividing the toy into three, 85mm long segments. The first is one starts out at around 15mm with the tip and has a max. diameter of 65mm at around 70mm measured from the tip. The second segment is starts out at 62mm and a max. diameter of 77mm. The last one starts out at 75mm and flows into the rectangular base at 290mm insertable length without a neck at a whopping 100mm. The maximum diameter has to be taken with a grain of salt though: These is the maximum extension of two ridges, there is space between them to compress them. So taking the entire toy is feasible yet challenging even if you can’t take a 100mm plug.

To my surprise both toys despite being VERY intense are not only made in SquarePeg’s signature Supersoft Bronze and Graphite but also in Firm Black. Since the firmness also effects the bendiness of toys, I am actually not sure how a Blunger in firm black could work. If you have experience, please write to me.

Detail of the Blunger’s Round Tip

Material-wise both toys are made with the high standards of all SquarePeg toys: Pure body-safe, easy to clean Platinum Silicone – ideal for allergic people or orgies. To clean them, throw them in the dishwasher, autoclave them, use bleach or dishsoap. They toys won’t mind and thus they are quickly clean and sterilized to be pushed into a new hole. Especially when you get the soft versions of this toy, store it upright or laying down without pressure to keep the toys from getting creases. Like all anal toys, you should store them only with toys of the same material together. Otherwise the plasticizers of vinyl for example can damage the silicone permanently and irreversible.  To keep the silicone in best shape and not risk tarnishing the surface, do not use silicone lube with these toys. They are safe with every other kind of lube like oil- or water-based ones.

Playing with the Blunger & Torque

This is going to be hard again: My testees and I all love both of these toys because of their creative, unique shape. These toys are great examples for the founder of SquarePeg being a sculpture and real ass aficionado. He just KNOWS how a toy needs to be shaped to hit the right spots. But because of their complex shape, the greatness is hard to convey this time. So I am going to give it a try…

In the quick info box I called both toys “depth toys” and that is true to some extended. Both are long enough to penetrate and stretch the second sphincter. But until you get there, you have to master both of these toys which is an intense, hot and horny challenge.

The Acron-Like Prostate stimulating Bulge on the Blunger

The Blunger feels a bit like a Best-of of all SquarePeg toys: It has the flowing thickening of the Ballistic toys, the prostate stimulating bulge of the Acorn, the round, easy-entry tips signature to Rik Jammer, the long resting necks of the Egg and the gentle neck decrease of the Slinks. All these unique shapes have been designed with a specific stimulating purpose in mind. By itself they are great, in the combination they are close to sensory overload. When vigorously fucking a loose (!) hole with the Blunger, a firework of different sensations is set off: From stretch in the sphincter over prostate simulation followed from a short moment of just “relaxing” friction at the middle-neck until the rodeo starts again. For most of my testees the most intense sensation was when taking the toy completely: Depending on your anatomy, you are either at maximum stretch or are stimulating your prostate at the last bulge when the tip begins to stretch the second sphincter and the Blunger starts to go deep. It is an intense, literally mind-blowing experience and not for the faint of heart. Especially when playing hard with the Blunger, make sure that the hole is trained and nicely loose. Otherwise the many stimulations can make it quickly tighten up.

The Short Resting Neck which Segment the Torque between the Thick Ridges running around the Toy’s Core

Again, the Torque is a different kind of game. The small tip and gradual diameter increase make it a toy easy to take. Once inside the piece de résistance of the Torque is twisting it inside the hole. The thick ridges massage the sphincter, creating an interesting mix of friction and stretch sensation. If you go deeper, you can start playing with the angle to target the prostate and either forcefully massage it with the full width and thickness of the ridge or just lightly brush it. Once taken to the point that the tip reaches the second sphincter, it gets interesting again: Since the first segment is fairly thick and the ridges ridged, the twisting sensation inside this rarely stimulated body area was almost too much for even a depth experienced bottom who already has played with a Slink Vortex! The thickness and sturdiness of the ridges, the increase in diameter is just a (w)hole different level of intensity compared to the “soft” Slink Vortex.

Detail of the Flowing yet Challenging Thick Elements of the Blunger

While the Blunger is a good toy for selfplay (I actually recommend starting out to explore this toy on your own before letting another person work your hole over with it!), the Torque is more of a partner toy. Riding it is fun, but the thick ridges make achieving your “usual” diameter a challenge because the texture irritates the hole a bit. Yet the intense sensation of twisting and turning the ridges inside a loose hole is very difficult to achieve on your own.

Where to buy?

When living in the USA, it is best to order from SquarePeg directly because you can get the toy in your desired color and firmness. The Blunger costs $189 and the Torque $199. In the EU, it is easiest to order from Regulation though they currently only stock the Blunger for £189 in Graphite where I got mine from. If you want to get the Torque or the Blunger in a different color, get in touch with them.

How the times at ToyTorture.com have changed… When I started this website almost exactly 7 years ago, it was a platform purely for BDSM toys for gay men. And now, ¾ of a decade later, female pro doms, trans* persons and straight couples are a small yet significant portion of my readers – and a growing number of anal toy enthusiasts. I started this year with an anal toy special that was so well received and generated so many reader questions, that following the summer vacation, I dive deep into the topic again with yet another focus on toys that tickle your taint and more.

Left SquarePeg Leo 2X, Right Mel 2X

Construction

The toys I reviewed in the past were most form follows function, designed with a specific stimulation in mind. But following the last Anal Toy Special, I got a lot of questions about realistic anal toys. So I am kicking of this one with a review of two products from SquarePeg’s realistic range. Both are casts from guys, the founder of SquarePeg met: Mel came to a fund raiser in 2012 where you could create your own dildo, Leo he got to know through friends in 2016. Lucky for us, they had not objections of the members joining the SquarePeg team.

Both toys come in two varieties: The standard version with a realistic base that mimics the balls and the Harness version which a round, flat base for using them with a strap-on harness. I will be reviewing the Harness varieties of these dildos in this review. Both varieties are alike but the base and because of this the total length and insertable length can differ a bit between models in the same size. The Harness dildos can be outfitted either with the SquarePegHole which works with fuck machine adaptors and the FlushCup, a suction cup. Sadly the options are exclusive and the suction cup do not come in every sizes which I find a bit annoying. But more about that later.

Detail of Leo’s Softly Tapering Glans

Being cast off US citizens, both models are cut. But this is where the similarities end. Leo starts out with an evenly tapered glans that flows into a shaft with just a very subtle rim. The top third of the dick is slightly curved back with the remaining shaft being straight, only slightly increasing in diameter towards the end. The shaft is covered with a smooth yet noticeable ventral groove and some small veins but overall it is a very even and soft toy to ride. As always with SquarePeg toys, the following measurements are only rough guidelines. Since every toy is made by hand, there can be diversion in size.

Size Head Diameter Diameter at Base Length SquarePegHole FlushCup
XS 32mm 37mm 140mm
S 41mm 47mm 191mm X
Actual/ Life Size 49mm 57mm 229mm X X
1X 57mm 61mm 260mm X X
1X Long 57mm 61mm 330mm X
2X 61mm 67mm 286mm X X
2X Long 65mm 69mm 362mm X
3X 73mm 77mm 292mm X
King 77mm 81mm 330mm X

Detail of Mel’s Blunt Glans with the Big Gap below the Rim

Mel is a completely different from Leo. He starts out with a big, fat and a bit blunt glans. His foreskin was cut completely so there is a large and relatively deep groove below the glans rim. This leads to a nice pop when the glans goes in before the shaft starts sliding in. The shaft has the same diameter as the glans rim and leans heavily towards the left. It is heavily textured with thick veins and a prominent ventral groove.  All this texture leads to an almost triangular shaft.

Size Diameter Length SquarePegHole FlushCup
Small 49mm 178mm X
Actual/ Life Size 57mm 216mm X X
1X 63mm 222mm X X
2X 69mm 237mm X X

Like all SquarePeg toys, Leo and Mel are made out of platinum silicone, which means body safe and hypoallergenic platinum is used to cure the silicone. Besides platinum making the toy body safe, it makes the toys easy to handle. After having used them, you can basically throw everything at hem to get them clean: From hot water with dish soap over citrus or vinegar acid to bleach, the dishwasher or even autoclave them. This makes the toys ideal for sex parties because they can be quickly and easily be cleaned and sterilized between partners.

Since they are made out of soft silicone, store them upright or laying down without pressure to avoid creases. Never store them with other materials together because the plasticizers can damage the silicone for good!

Detail of Leo’s relatively Smooth Shaft

Speaking of damaging your toys: Despite what the founder of SquarePeg says, I do the silicone oil in the lube will destroy silicone toys. I recommend only using water- or oil-based lube with silicone toys, especially because they are easier to clean off.

Playing with the Leo & Mel

Since the anatomy of both dicks is quite different, the sensation you can create with them is also very different. Leo is definitely the softer one of the two. His glans opens up the sphincter nicely and since is flow into the shaft with just a very little bump of foreskin, it is an easy toy to take. The very gradual and not too increase in diameter combines with the moderate texturing makes it a good toy for beginners. The stretch and “friction” sensation is noticeable but in a purely pleasurable way; there is not challenge, especially in the smaller two sizes. The larger ones from the 2X on are interesting in a different way: They help train the trickiest part of depth play, the initial opening. With length starting at 286mm and a diameter to length ratio up to 1:5.5, they should reach the second sphincter in most asses. Unlike the Slink or the Depth Probe which are good for exploring the depth of one’s gut, the Leo is more purpose driven in opening up and a bit desensitizing this delicate body area. Furthermore, because the shaft is thicker and thus a big more rigid and the overall length is not too much, the toy is easier to control, even when playing with yourself. Some testees actually used my Leo 2X to “fuck” their second sphincter open – and went on to buy the 2X Long or even the King to train further.

Detail of the Leo with the SquarePegHole and Mel with the FlushCup

Mel however is a completely different story. To take the blunter and short glans, the hole should be pre-stretched. Otherwise the popping in can be quite intense. The rugged shaft in the same diameter doesn’t offer much rest either. Sliding up and down the shaft will intensely stimulate the sphincter even at the size small. Do not let yourself be fooled by the attribute “small”: That size is for intermediates and not for people starting out with anal play. My 2X actually found the most fans under my fistees. It is the perfect toy mid-fisting scene. It stretches and stimulates in a comfortable size when you have been punched, yet is not too extreme for loose holes. The short length doesn’t reach the delicate area of the second sphincter so involuntary tightening of the hole is unlikely. If the hole is too loose, twisting and turning during the fucking can spark things up a bit, especially when the ventral groove “beats” the prostate. For selffucking the Mel also was popular with less experience anal players who have a bit complex rectum which does not extend straight forward but bends. The bend in the toy prevents unintended irritations once you have found the sweet spot.

The bend is also one of the shortcomings of the toy when riding it. Because the heavy head tilts towards the left, the way too small FlushCup cannot support the weight. After a short time the toy will tip over. I have tested the FlushCup on the Mel 2X and on a friend’s Leo 2X and it seems to be to small and too weak to keep bigger and heavier toys in check. Same applies for the size of the harness base. It is a bit too small and too thin for a rigorous fucking. There is always a chance of it slipping out. Still, I prefer the Harness version of the realistic one. Especially with lubey hands, the soft, collapsible base is easier to grip than the round scrotum of the realistic ones.

 

Detail of Mel’s Heavily Textured Shaft

The final point of critic – albeit a personal one – is the choice of materials. All realistic dildos from SquarePeg come in their signature Bronze, cool Graphite an Chestnut (a skin tone) – all in supersoft. I am well aware that as a guy who enjoys a punch-fucking with a Peggar Extractor I am representing a minority of intense anal torment (?) players. But on the other hand I do not want to be patronized regarding what is “too extreme”. A long Leo in firm used gently could train and straighten up the guts for manual depth play; a Mel in firm would pleasure and challenge even the loosest hole.

Does this make the two dildos bad or undesirable toys? Most certainly not! They instantly became part of my fisting and selfplay repertoire and I very much enjoy using them (on me). Sometimes I just wish these awesome toys would be a bit greater than they already are.

Where to buy?

When living in the USA, it is best to order from SquarePeg directly because you can get the toy you want in the color and configuration you desire. The Leo starts at $54 and ends at $257 while the Mel retails between $57 and $152. In the EU, it is easiest to order from Regulation where the toys cost roughly the same in GBP. They do not stock the entire range of Leo and Mel combinations. If you want to order something they do not stock, simply send them a message and they will get it for you.

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.

Detail of the Acorn-Like Cecond Bump of the Longneck Humped

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.

Detail of the Goose Head-Lile Head of the Longneck Humped

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.

Erostek ET312b

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

The Erostek ET312b

Since the ET312b is sometimes considered not to be compliant with EU electronic device regulations, if shipping it to the EU I highly recommend ordering it from Regulation. I had several friends’ boxes ordered from the USA seized by customs.

Construction

The Erostek ET312b is probably one of the oldest e-stim power boxes which is still on the market. Its design has almost become iconic, the characteristic beige box having been featured on so many porn pics over the last decades – until Erostek changes the design a few years ago to a more stylish black. This design change lead to some discussion in my testee panel. Some – like me – prefer the new look because it fits the style of most playrooms and scene atmospheres. Other likes that the old box popped out and is indeed a classic. If you have an old box and want the new look, there is a kit to exchange the case – or do it the Trikoot way and use alkyd based paint to color the case in your signature color. The case has a rough texture which forgives finger prints while the control panel is still glossy. The box measures 205x157x65mm making is the largest of the e-stim power boxes. This is largely due to the lead acid battery which has a capacity of up to 48h. But which also makes the box with a weight 1.200g making it the heaviest box on the market. When the battery gets old, it can be replaced with a little bit of electro technical know-how but unlike the other boxes which are powered by 9v block batteries, if it runs out mid-scene in a club you can’t replace the battery instantly but have to use the power supply unit. Generally speaking, Erostek sales almost everything as spare parts. So if something gets broken and you are handy, you can fix it yourself.

Detail of the Control Panel

The entire front of the box is taken up by the control panel. The left third is for display information. On top there is a two-line green backlight LCD. Below it there is a hole through which you can adjust the screen’s contrast using a fine screw-driver (which is only necessary in extreme weather conditions) and two red LEDs which flash when channel A and/or B is firing. In the middle there are the main control buttons. The first horizontal pair are the grey buttons Menu and ok. Pressing Menu will get you to the advanced setting (see below) and OK will select the currently displayed menu point. Next to them are white buttons labeled Up and Down. In the menu they are used for navigating. Outside the menu, they are used to scroll through the box’s programs. Next to the Up key there are three rotary controls. The first is “Multi Adjust” to manipulate the current program, the other two are controlling the power level of channel A and B. Below the three knobs there is the power button which starts up the box, the link jack for connecting the ET312b with a computer, 3.5mm jack line-ins for the microphone and another one labeled “Audio”. I have tried the microphone and music on both jacks and got the same effects so I am not sure why there are two. Theoretically the mic should create very faint sensations when plugged into Audio but I did not experience that. Next are the two 3.5mm outputs for channel A and B and last the input for the power supply unit.

Detail of the Display

The ET312b comes with a few accessories: The power supply with adaptors for USA, EU and Canada, two 1.2cm long 3.5mm jack to 4mm banana plug leads, a 2m long line-in cable to connect you phone or MP3 player with the power box, a microphone with a 2.4m long cable and holdfast with a small glue patch to permanently position it somewhere in your playroom (though the holdfast is so flimsy and the glue to weak, I use adhesive tape to position and fix the mic in a suitable position for each scene) and an informative manual. What the ET312b doesn’t come with – unlike most other modern premium e-stim boxes – is a nice carrying case.

Playing with the Erostek ET312b

The ET312b is used like every other box. After pressing the power button a 3 second self-test is run after which the battery’s power level is displayed. After that connect the leads to the electrodes, connect them to the box, select a program and slowly turn the channel’s intensity up until the sub starts to feel someting.  The ET312b has 18 resp. 24 different programs. The last 6 programs are custom once which can be transferred onto the box using the ErosLink software. After selecting a new program there is a short ramping up period. This is to prevent too intense stimulation for the case the power level has not been turned down before the change. This is necessary because every program feels differently intense on the same power output level. The sensation of the programs can be adjusted by turning the Multi Adjust knob.

Program name Sensation Multi Adjust Effect
Waves Wave-like sensation with random wave length and intensity Speed of waves
Stroke Steady wave form on both channels Wave length
Climb Pulsed sensations that increases up to the maximum selected  intensity Climbing speed
Combo Sensation like wave program but changing between the channels Length of stimulation on both channels, simultaneous stimulation when turned all the way up
Intense Unmodulated waves Wave length and feel from soft to spiky
Rhythm Pulses of increasing sensation which’s output will increase each cycle Pulse length
Audio 1 Transforms audio input into same stimulation on both channels Selects input’s sensitivity level: Turn Multi Adjust until LEDs are flashing than start adjusting the channels’ intensity
Audio 2 Transforms left side audio signal into stimulation for channel A and right side for channel B
Audio 3 Transforms left side audio signal into stimulation for channel A and right side for channel B but process the waveform in a unique way
Split Channel A: Stroke, channel B: Waves Speed of waves & wave length
Random 1 Mixes patterns from the first 6 programs for a unique stimulation Alters selection variable
Random 2 Random stimulations at changing intervals No effect
Toggle Constant output on alternating channels Changing speed between the channels
Orgasm Ramping up pulses alternating between the channels Pluse frequency
Torment Brief stimulation bursts with random pattern and random breaks Pluse frequency
Phase 1 Allows for stimulation to be felt in three electrodes on the body Speed of changing between channels
You need special tri-phase cables to experience these channels
Phase 2 Adds changing intensity
Phase 3 Three programs on only two channels

With an output of 80 micro coulombs per pulse the ET312b is the most powerful unit in the market. Through the powerful battery it delivers this output regardless if running on battery or using the external power supply. While most subs do not really need the full power on most boxes, if you are having a real pain pig over, having the extra power in the backhand without having to change the electrodes is good.

Just like the E-Stim Systems 2b, the ET312b supports tri-phasing. This means using a special cable the stimulation can be felt at three areas using only a two channels. Since for this kind of stimulation there is an interaction between all three poles, never use it above the waist!

The Microphone which comes with the ET312b

What sets the ET3212b apart from all other power boxes currently available on the market are the advanced features which you can access through the menu button. These features can be used to customize the power box to your personal preferences like:

  • Turning the ramping after a program change on and off
  • Selecting which two programs should be run in split mode
  • Selecting which program the ET312b should be the default after starting up
  • Choosing a power level
  • Change the feeling of programs

As already mentioned Erostek also sells soft- and hardware to program the ET312b. Through the Eroslink software you can write new programs, alter existing programs also on the fly or choose from 25 new programs to fill the six “hidden” program slots in the menu. I have never used the software myself but tried it at a friend for a short time. While it is powerful, you need a lot of understanding how e-stim works (or trying out a lot on the fly) to really develop new routines. And while the interface is functional, it looks very Windows 95 – which explains why the connection to the box is done via a serial port… Especially if you look for remote control over the internet, take a look at the E-Stim System 2b.

Last but not least: Because the ET312b has been on the market for so long and through the advanced features is considered a “pro box” (even though most people probably will never use the features), sooner or later most e-stim enthusiasts will buy one of these boxes. These makes the ET312b the ideal choice for subs who host traveling tops because it is likely that the top will already know how to use the power box without an introduction.

Conclusion: Most powerful, most sophisticated, most widely used but most complicated power box.
