Form: Fantasy Toy
Vendor: Bad Dragon
Every since I started reviewing Bad Dragon toys, I have been asked “What’s the best dog dick?” “How does the knot of X compare to Y?” “What is the closest model to the real deal?” So to finally answer the question, here it is: The ultimate Canine(ish) Look&Feel Like-the-Read-Deal Bad Dragon Dildo review!
Back in 2008 when Bad Dragon was founded they were one of the first major companies using only platinum silicone for their toys. Besides the excellent material properties (easy to clean, 100% body safe), they probably chose this material for technical reasons: The material comes in a wide range of firmness from which Bad Dragon chose soft (Shore A2), medium (Shore A5) and firm (Shore A8 which is still relatively soft) and takes on colors very easily. That is the reason for Bad Dragon’s many beautiful and elaborate patterns. Some are standard, some are available exclusively for a specific toy or limited time.
Bad Dragon used to make every toy according to custom orders. This led to production times up to half year. So two years back they switched their order system: On a more or less regular basis they now have drops of already made toys. Sadly XL toys are rare in these drops and I know what you ass pigs are after. Once in a blue moon Bad Dragon opens custom orders for a limited number of orders. Then you can order your dream configuration. A lot of guys complain to me that this system sucks. I actually find it a lot better than the old one since they only take as many orders as they can process in a foreseeable time so you do not have to wait forever to get your new fantasy dong. Also, I do not know when the next drop/ custom order date is! Best you follow them on Twitter; they announce drops and custom orders there.
Besides firmness and color, you can order many of Bad Dragon’s toys with at least one of these options: First, the suction cup. If it is possible, add it to your toy! It is just a nifty feature which makes riding the toy so much easier; especially attached to smooth tiles like in the shower. The cum tube is a controversial topic. None of my Bad Dragons have a cum tube. With friends’ toys I was able to try the effect of shooting cum lube up my ass. It did not feel so intense but added a fuckton of effort to the cleaning. However, after every Bad Dragon review I post I am getting inundated with messages from people who swear by the cum tube! It adds so much of immersion to their toy that they would never buy a toy without it. If you have never tried a Bad Dragon with a cum tube and consider it, I highly recommend buying one of their Lil’Squirte to test the effect before buying an equipped big toy.
Since this review is on knotted toys, let me briefly talk about a feature Bad Dragon does not offer: Inflatable knots. Yes, the sensation is closer to a real knot swelling and locking. But since on dildos they are inflated with air, they can bust and damage your intestinal! That is the reason why Bad Dragon along with Oxballs or SquarePeg does not offer this feature because the risk of serious injury it too high.
Choosing the right size for your Bad Dragon can be a bit tricky: Due to the real size tool on their website you get a good impression how big the toy will actually be. However, the firmer the silicone and the more texture it has, the harder it will be to take! And since the toy is made out of platinum silicone it must not be used with silicone lube! Otherwise the silicone oil inside the lube with disintegrate the supersmooth silicone surface.
While we are on the topic, a word how to care for your new silicone sculptures: Do not store them together with toys made out of other materials. The plasticizers leaving the material can damage your silicone toys for good. Especially when they are made out of soft silicone, store them upright. Otherwise they get dents and creases.
Playing with Canine Dildos
What all these toys have in common is a so called knot, a cavernous body at the bottom of a dog’s dick which swells when he is close to cumming. This way he connects (terminus technicus “ties”) to his bitch and they stay connected. The general appeal of this feature is a strong, intense stretch of the anus, locking the toy into the rectum and putting pressure on the prostate.
The knotting (the thick bulges pressing through the sphincter) is more intense than pressing a sphere of the same through the anus. The knot is formed out of two half-spheres laterally attached to the shaft so it is perpendicular to the opening of the sphincter. Because of this, it takes more relaxation to get it out again, aka it is “locked” inside the ass. The position of the knot means, the stimulation has a “direction” which makes turning and tugging interesting while the dildo is tied into the ass. With a bit of practice you can target the prostate, make the feeling of fullness and massiveness travel along the sensitive walls of the rectum.
The final challenge of almost all knots is the position: They sit just above the dildo’s base. Since dildos scale proportionally, the bigger the knot, the longer the shaft. So to truly enjoy BIG knots, you have to be able to take anal toys DEEP. So if you really want to have a Mastiff-sized knot raping you, you should prestretch your second sphincter well!
Since most reader questions go along the lines of “What is the most intense knot?” I have sorted the toys from most to least intense.
In the entire Bad Dragon toy range, Rex is the dildo coming closest to a real dog dick. It starts out with a meatus sticking out of the dull glans. There is a bit of buldgey drop around the glans before the barrel-shape shaft starts. This shaft is very lightly textured with veins you almost do not fell. Below the shaft sits a MASSIVE knot with two big cavernous bodies on the side and a smaller one on top. Between the knot and the shaft sits a thin neck.
Being the most realistic dildo of the bunch, Rex is the hardest to take. Glans does little to gently open up the first let alone the second sphincter. It busts the muscle open and through the bulge rim pops in. The shaft through his barrel shape does stretch gently. But due to the shape which tapers towards the knot, the knotting is insane! Rex has the highest shaft-diameter-right-above-knot-to-knot-diameter ratio. The knot is dullish and thus does little to seduce the anus to open up gently. The knot is also flattish in the bottom. In combination with the relatively thin neck, Rex really locks in place. So getting him out once the sphincter has tightened up a bit and closed around the shaft can be an intense experience to say it mildly.
The thin neck is actually Rex’ biggest weakness because it cannot support the heavy shaft and knot. So riding can be a challenge. Just popping the knot in and out works if you are loose. But letting the entire shaft slide in and out is difficult. Especially if you chose the soft firmness.
According to Bad Dragon’s website Austin is a fox. There is not much literature let alone pics of bio fox dicks (yes, I know about the many fox furries in murr suits flashing their knob) so I cannot say how anatomically correct this dildo is. Overall I would call him the gentler brother of Rex without him being tame!
The glans is still dullish but domed to open up the sphincter. Instead of a glans drop the tip flows directly into the shaft. However below it is a cluster of soft bulges. They are fun to ride and tease the anus and potentially the prostate. Austin has a ventral groove but it is nestled between a fold so even when turning the toy you can hardly feel it.
The shaft tapers slightly towards the knot but also the knot tapers towards its maximum, massive diameter. Don’t get me wrong, the stretch will still breathtakingly strong when the toy enters for the first time. It also is a bit rounder on the bottom so it goes out more easily but far from easy. The shaft is thicker for a better support and the base is a bit bigger than on Rex. So Austin can be ridden more easily.
Being a little bit more rounded, I personally prefer Austin over Rex. Rex is intense everywhere and always hard to take! There is kind of a simulation overflow when on my Rex XL the dull glans wants to forced itself through my second sphincter while the big knot rapes my anus open. It takes a special headspace to enjoy that! For immersion reasons I can see why people choose Rex. But if you “just” want to experience intense sphincter busting knotting, I recommend Austin.
Cole and Razor
I write about these toys together because Razor is basically a meaner version of Cole. Both have a glans inspired by a canine one. Though at the top there is just a top, not a meatus sticking out. The head is a flattish pyramid but not a dull dog glans.
The shaft is barrel-shaped and very subtly textured. Especially Razor is gently stretching open the sphincter to prepare it for the knot. Also Razor’s shaft arches slightly for easier entry, especially when going deep. Cole’s knot is for lack of better words a bit edgy, making the knotting more intense. But also the knot perfect for stimulating the prostate through twisting and turning. Since the knot depth (way from top to bottom of knot), Cole is my recommendation when you want to feel intense knotting but cannot handle depth well. Razor’s cavernous bodies are nicely rounded and flow a bit into the beck. The neck diameter is thick enough to support the body well even when riding the toy hard.
The bases are surprisingly small – and support the toy surprisingly well. Especially Cole’s small yet powerful suction cup surprised me (Razor cannot be equipped with one). Due to the small base, these toys are perfect for fucking a bottom keeling in doggy in front of you.
Now things start to get a bit weird. According to Bad Dragon’s website, Roland is half coyote and thus a canine, half a rattlesnake. So he is a Ralleyote. Having a knot (and several reader requests for a review), I am taking a look at him.
Roland’s glans loosely looks like Cole’s as a point canine inspired one. But the sides are textured with edgy ridges. The barrel shaft is textured with subtle wave. Above the knot a thick bulge goes around the shaft like a medial ring on a horse dick. The knot is bulge but has the lowest knot-to-shaft ratio. While being dullish in the top it tapes towards the short neck. This means, the knotting inside it considerable but it goes out more easily. The huge base compared to the diameter makes him very rideable.
There is a lot going on on Roland, making him a feast for people who appreciate subtle texture. His size leans toward the smaller side of the spectrum making him a perfect toy if you want to start out with texture und knot play. Unless you choose…
Another weird toy for a canine special and actually an anomaly in my review requests. Kippy is a mixture of a canine and feline dick – and a one-size toy. 80% of my anal toy reader questions are about BIGGER, DEEPER, HARDER. And on a first glance Kippy is neither.
He starts out with a point glans that has a huge bulge on the bottom – like a feline dick has. The shaft is textured with point bumps which on a real cat dick would be fluke-like. The shaft is relatively short and the knot is one spherical knot. It tapers quite gently and evenly for a nice yet fellable stretch. The short neck is again textured with a few bumps and bulges. The base could be a bit larger to offer better stand for such a textured and knotted toy.
All things considered Kippy is a great ambitious beginner toy. It opens the anus up gently, the bulge stimulates the anus and the prostate, the bumps are a great intro into texture and the knot –shaft-ration is great.
As a texture junkie, I would like to love Kippy – if he was bigger! There are so few feline toys out there that I see a real market change for an XL with a knot diameter of maybe 88mm or so. The bumps should scale a bit larger and especially higher so you can really feel them and voila! A nice new toy for texture hungry ass pigs!
Missing a knotted Bad Dragon toy? Over the years I have reviewed many other knoted Bad Dragon Dildos like Vergil, David and Apollo or Nova and Terra. So check out my other Bad Dragon reviews. Pro tip: Since the intro about what makes to toys special is bascially all identically, you can skip right to the juicy part where I talk about the toys, beginning about in the middle of the review.
Where to buy?
Lasts year Bad Dragon introduced VERY limited brick & mortar retail in a hand full of shop in the USA and Europe. But their selection of models is limited and only available in one firmness and color. So your best chance of getting your dream Bad Dragon dildo is through their website. While some people curse their limited custom orders, I actually find monitoring the inventory section fun because it inspired me to consider colors I would never have chosen on my own.
