Unboxing the E-Stim Systems Remote

Earlier this year E-Stim Systems replaced their aging Series 1 Remote with the brand new Remote power box. I haven’t had much chance to play around with the gadget yet but from the first looks of it, E-Stim Systems did improve almost every aspect. And since E-Stim in this times of crisis is a topic on many of my readers’ minds, I decided to give you at least a quick overview what is inside the package before reviewing the entire unit later this spring in a little E-Stim Special.

Like all E-Stim Systems power boxes, the Remote comes in a robust and nifty carrying case. Wrapped around it is a sleeve with basic info on the unit and its potential.

Inside the case, the layout is pretty standard: In the bottom EVA foam with cutouts for the box, battery and accessories, in the top acoustic foam to protect the unit and hide the instructions. Once I reviewed the box, I usually replace both types of foam with cube foam. This way I can tailor the interior for all the accessories I want to take with me to a scene.

The most important element inside the packaging is the power box itself. It measures 111x68x28mm and thus is one of the most compact boxes on the market. Being a remote controlled box, the exterior is pretty plain. The front has LEDs for the currently selected program in the middle and at the top end one which flashes when the box is firing and another when it is receiving signals from the remote. At the top of the box there is a power switch and a 3.5mm jacket for the lead. At the back of the box there is belt clip.

The remote just measures 60x33x8.5mm. It has four buttons: Two for intensity control, one for the program selection and a fire button. Above the fire button is a little LED which flashes when commands are transmitted. At the bottom of the remote there is a key ring.

Since the Remote is a single-channel box, it comes with one 150cm long 3.5mm jack to 2mm pin plug lead. The 2mm pin plugs is an interesting choice to name it mildly because 4mm banana plug is the system all other E-Stim Systems electrodes are using.

Like all E-Stim Systems power boxes it comes with my choice of batteries for e-stim: Duracel Industrial 9V battery.

To have fun right out of the box, the Remote comes with a pair of pad electrodes. They have a 2mm pin socket which explains the 2mm pin lead.

Like all E-Stim Systems products, the Remote comes with a Lifetime Guarantee if you follow the instructions on this card.

Unlike older boxes, the Remote does not come with a large manually but a easy to follow quick start guide, both for the box and the remote. In my opinion that is the way to go. Most people (especially if they read my E-Stim 101 😏) do not need a full manual but just a quick overview and dive into the fun. For the people who really want to dive into to box, you can download a comprehensive full manual here.

I look forward to reviewing this power box and give you a full, in-depth review soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions about this box, just get in touch!

Best for Self Play – Bondage

The Mr S Asylum Muzzle

I have long thought about if I should really write this piece. Self bondage is a delicate topic. The chances of something going wrong are higher than when you play with someone else – especially when you try to achieve the restriction level that kick most bondage subs. And if something goes wrong, there is no one to help you escape the predicament. I am well aware of devices like ice locks and the time locks that hit the market the past few years. But they are not failsafe and if you get a cramp or some other serious incident happens that requires your immediate attention, you are stuck in them until the time is off. So in this review I will focus on toys that will give you some sense of helplessness but are still easily enough to take off when necessary.

First some pieces of advice for when restricting your movement on your own:

  • I highly recommend sitting or laying down to keep your form accidently tripping and injuring yourself.
  • Get a virtual session sitter. Inform a friend what you are about to do and agree upon a time to check in with them once you are down. Set yourself an alarm clock which leaves you ample time to strip yourself out of the bondage on your own and call them back. If you do not call them in due time, they should inform the authorities about the potential predicament you are in.

The Fetters Chester Binder Restraints

The first I am going to recommend when playing on your own are the Fetters Leather Chest Binders Restraints. With the lockable chest bench has the important momentum of hearing and feeling the lock click, binding the restraints irremovable to your body once locked. For the sake of security and frankly practicality only wrap the cuffs around your biceps which will give you already restrict your arm movement properly. Also, you have something to look forward once the lockdown is over and your top will restrain your wrists to your chest making you even more helpless. Alternatively, take a look at the Fetters Heavy Leather Hogtie Set and just use the thigh restraints. They have the attached ankle restraints to bind these two body parts together, making it impossible for you to move your legs. Theoretically, both pieces of bondage gear could be combined on your own. However, the level of bondage is so intense that the time to take all restraints of in an emergency situation is too long so I strongly advise against combining the two together.

The Regulation Padded Posture Collar

However, there are two good toys matching these pieces of bondage gear. First is the Padded Posture Collar from Regulation. It forces you to keep your head facing straight forward. Since most of our head’s movements are intuitive, a sense of being severely limited will soon creep into your mind. Second is the Mr S Ultra Blindfold. It is the best, most effective and most comfortable blindfold on the planet. Period! It blocks out all the light with being barely noticeable, forcing your to look inside yourself and feel every little element of restriction and your predicament. I consider this specific toy essential to every toy collection because it is SO good. So even if you are not planning on playing with yourself, don’t have this blindfold and want to do some therapy shopping, buy this piece of gear!

The Mr S Locking Front Buckle Gag

For all the reasons above, head gear naturally is great for self bondage. However, I would not recommend combining head gear (except for the Bishop Head Harness) with bondage that restricts your arms like the Chester Binders. The chances of these pieces constricting your breather are very low but still there! So you might need to take them off more immediately than you can undo your arm and hand restraints.

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

The first piece of head gear is actually my favorite gag: The Mr S Front Buckle Gag. The lavish padding of the front feels like soft leather feels like a gloved hand covering your mouth, making all glove over mouth fetishist like me drool even more – as if the pecker inside your mouth would not be enough. You can this version with a locking buckle to intensify the feeling of being bound even more.

Mr s Leather Bad Hood

If you are a fan of feeling many straps around you or a piece of gear slowly encapsulating you more and more, the Mr S Bishop Head Harness is the head gear to go to. The lavishly used soft leather caresses your skin while the many straps are wrapped around your head. Once fettered you can add a blindfold or a gag for furthermore increase the bondage. To be honest, it takes a bit of practice to figure out in which order and how strong to tighten each strap. But once you have gotten the hang of it, it is an intense sensual experience (Big thanks to ReddyWhp who got me hooked on this experience almost exactly 7 years ago!). A similar experience regarding the soft leather wrapping around your face and straps being tightened gives you the Mr S Asylum Muzzle. Bonus feature: It has a zipper on the back so once adjusted you can put it on fairly easily and due to the lack of an attached collar, you can add the Posture Collar. The easiest to put on piece of head gear is the Mr S Leather Bag Hood. Simply pull it over the head, lightly tighten the leather cord around your neck and enjoy the isolation. The rich smell of soft, high quality leather is intoxicating. The two small nose holes should allow for enough air to flow to you if you breathe slowly and steadily.

As always: NEVER do breath play alone! Please be safe in all forms of self play and stick the two pieces of advice I gave at the beginning of the article.

This is the final piece of this series in which I have also talked about Anal Toys, E-Stim and CBT, Edging & Milking. I hope you enjoyed the articles and I would look forward to seeing you again some time around Easter when the regular review will start again. Until then: Stay healthy, stay kinky, stay isolated!

Best for Self Play – CBT, Edging & Milking

Oxballs Ballstretcher from Left to Right: Bullballs, Squeeze and Balls-T

In the last installment of this little series, I have already dipped a bit into the waters of CBT by looking at e-stim toys to torment your junk. Today will be all about manual toys to bring pain and pleasure to your genitals.

On numerous occasions I have talked about the effect of ball stretchers: Besides the obscene look and making your balls feel larger, they keep the testicles from being pulled towards your body when having an orgasm. This in combination with the bouncy motion during fucking or jerking makes your orgasms more intense. When starting out with ball stretching, I recommend the Oxballs ball stretcher made out of their various squishy materials. They take a bit of practice to put one, but if you make a mistake the effects are less painful than with a metal ball stretcher. Also, they cover a wider range of stretch which is important when you do not know your right size.

The MC Customs Ferrula

Ball stretchers are the perfect basis for ball slapping and busting. They provide a good grip and keep the balls from moving away. For ball busting, my toy of choice is the Oxballs Busting Paddle. It’s wide and heavy yet soft head delivers a strong and thuddy impact sensation on your balls. For more stingy sensation or slapping action, I prefer the MC Customs Ferrula paddle. Just be careful when you hit the balls with the Ferrula. Hitting the seminal ducts too often and hard can lead to permanent injuries.

Less painful but also requiring some care and attention when playing with them are vacuum cylinders from Thickwall Cylinder. Carefully pumping your dick, will make it puffy and more sensitive. So some people use pumping their dicks as foreplay for edging or milking. While pumping can help with erectile dysfunctions, the permanent increase in penis size has not yet been proving scientifically. Though, if you want to find out if your dick size will increase over the upcoming weeks of isolation, it will be an extremely enjoyable research process 😉

The Doxy Die Cast House in its Case

There are numerous different toy to make edging or milking your dick more pleasurable. The simple yet effective toys are the masturbators from Bad Dragon. They all have unique textures inside and are made out of supersoft silicone to accommodate even XL dicks. Unlike other masturbators the sleeve is not house in a case but you grip it directly. This way you can dose the pressure intensity just the way you need it. A step up the technology ladder is the Doxy Massager. Either use it on its own to tease the frenulum or add an attachment to pull over your glans, the strong vibrations will quickly get you off once, twice, thrice… What I often do is combining the Bad Dragon sleeve with the Doxy pressed against my perineum to get both my dick and my prostate stimulated. Finally, if you have tense muscles from the unusual workout at home, the Doxy is actually also a really good and strong massage tool! If you want the high end,  100% hands-free solution to your boiling balls, get yourself a Venus 2000. This milking machine will either keep you on the edge for hours or milk one consecutive orgasm out of your nuts after the other. It is a hefty investment, but it will bring you joy for years to come once this crazy situation is over.

In the next and final chapter of this little journey into Self Play I will take a look at Bondage Gear.

Best for Self Play – E-Stim

The ElectraStin AXIS in the Original Case

Yesterday, I have given you a short tour through the reviews for your anal needs. Today, I am going to look at E-Stim, probably the second most popular toy category for self play.

Let’s start with the basics: For E-Stim play you need a power box which creates the electric waves and electrodes which deliver it to your body. You always need a pair of electrodes since the currency flows from one pole to another. If you want to dive deeper into the intricacies and safety guidelines of E-Stim, take a look at my E-Stim 101.

As most of you are asked to stay at home, some of you are starting to get adventurous and curious about E-Stim play. So one of the most often asked questions is “Which box to start out with?” I recommend the E-Stim Systems Pebble. With two channels, it is already equipped to stimulate two body regions or two partners at once, yet easy to use and has some fun programs build into it.

The E-Stim Systems 2b remotely controlled by a Tablet over the Internet

For more elaborate play, there are two options I would recommend: On the one hand there is E-Stim Systems’ 2b which is their top of the line. Besides many, easy to manipulate and this versatile programs, they offer an easy to use and reliable online „Connect“ control feature to remotely controlled cam sessions. If you do not have a cam or online master buddy, on the other hand, there is the ElectraStim AXIS. Their new flagship model offers a bunch of innovative sensors like a motion or an proximity sensor. With a little creativity, you can create enough entropy to get the feeling someone else is in control of the box.

The E-Stim System Black Collection Bi-Polar Butt Plugs

Once you have found your preferred box, you need some electrodes. If you want to stick something up your butt (or pussy) and amongst other sensation want to feel like you are getting fucked by the e-stim, you have to get one of the many different E-Stim System insertable electrodes. Made out of aircraft grade aluminum, they are virtually indestructible. I almost have a dozen of those and they are worth every cent! Another essential tool are cock loops, like the ElectraStim Prestige ElectraLoops. They are easy and effective and depending on their position on your junk create different sensations. Just play around with them! In order not to short-circuit your power box, make sure that two loops on the same channel do not touch. I usually use one of my many simple Oxballs cockrings (I just realize, I need to review some of the more basic ones I have in my collection) for that. Speaking of Oxballs, I achieved my first hands free e-stim orgasm by placing their Zap on my glans, one electrode at the frenulum, the other on the top of the head. I think only Ballistic Metal sells those anymore. But you can easily construct a similar toy with one of the simple Oxballs cockrings and two of their Volt electrodes.

The Oxballs Shockball

When you want to step beyond the pleasure aspect of e-stim and really enter the realm of pain, Oxballs offers an intense tool to crush and fry your balls with the Shockballs e-stim ballcrusher – also I think only available at Ballistic Metal, the manufacturer, anymore. If you capitalize the C in CBT, take a look at the E-Stim Systems Vyper (XL) to set the nerve endings along your dick’s shaft on fire! If all of those tools don’t make you scream, your last resort is the E-Stim Systems Duo Pinwheel. Especially when playing alone, I recommend only using the Duo version of their electrified pinwheels because they are safe to use and the tiny contact area and mass make them a devious toy to play with.

The next part of this little series will be about CBT, edging and milking toys.

Best for Self Play – Anal Toys

The Mr Hankey Dragon and XXXCalibur

In the past few weeks I have been getting an increasing amount of questions and messages which toys are best for self play. So this little series of guides should help you navigate my many toy reviews and help you get safe, sane and sexually satisfied through these times. I try to update this little series so if you don’t follow me on Twitter, check tomorrow evening for the next installment.

Surprisingly, the most questions I have gotten followed along the line: “I can’t see my long distance relationship partner/ play mates/ fuck buddies anymore and I haven’t used my dildos in years. Any idea for a good dildo?”

Left SquarePeg Leo 2X, Right Mel 2X

If you are looking for a realistic dildo, one of my favorite toys of all of 2019 was the SquarePeg Mel because of the many different ridges around the shaft. However, they only make realistic dildos in their signature Supersoft silicone. And if you are a texture junkie like me who want to feel every vein, that might not be enough. For this, take a look at Mr Hankey’s Toys who make toys in soft and medium varieties and if that is not enough offer custom firmness. When it comes to realistic dildos, they are have a wide range from porn star dongs over John Doe dick to uncut underwear anacondas. Both companies are offering Vac-U-Lock holes for their dildos so you can attach them to fuck machines or other nifty accessories for self play.

Topped Toys Gape Keeper 100 & Chute 75

Apparently many of you are using their time at home to stretch and train their hole. Hands down the best toy for that is the SquarePeg Egg. It opens the hole smoothly both on the way in and on the way out. The Topped Toys Gape Keeper does the same job, however, they only offer their toys in soft silicone while SquarePeg also offers a firm version. Personally, I prefer firmer toys for stretching but maybe these times are the perfect opportunity to find out your preference. What both toys are great for are long-term wear.

The Organotoy Eggs from Small to XXL

For really LONG term wear and some fun when moving out and about, take a look at the OrganoToy Eggs. They are designed to be swallowed completely, giving you a nice sense of fullness and stimulate the sensitive nerve endings inside your rectum. If you want to wear them over extended periods of time, especially the smaller ones, please get a version with the pullout chain or rope to get them out securely even when they start to wonder up your colon. Another nifty feature of the pulling out is the prostate stimulation.

Vergil the Drippy Dragon as a Representation of Bad Dragon’s „Glans and a Knot“-Dildo Design ontop of an Anthropomorphic Base

This segways directly into the last category of this short overview: Prostate stimulation toys. I have to preferred prostate toy: First Bad Dragon’s Vergil the Drippy Dragon. The shape of head and body are PERFECTY for targeting my prostate and I have gotten countless anal and prostate orgasms from it. The other is the SquarePeg Acorn. The small, innocent looking ridge around the rim seems small but in the right hands and position will drive you nuts. And I am sure you now have enough time to find that perfect spot for you. And yes, of course there is the OrganoToys SAW for prostate milking. It is one of the most bizarre toys I have come across in my eight years of reviewing kinky sex toys. If you want something unusual and want to support a small, independent toy maker, give it a try.

Tomorrow I will take the look at E-Sim toys to pleasure yourself.

SqaurePeg Peg Away Putty

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

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

What is Peg Away Putty for?

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

Detail of the Putty and Activator

What do you get?

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

How do you use it?

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

The Square Peg Pegger Extractor with More Putty Sever Ridges

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

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

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

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

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

ElectraStim AXIS Unboxing

While the snow is falling heavily outside the window, it is a good time to get ToyTorture.com out of its hibernation. I decided to start with an heavily requested piece: The unboxing of the ElectraStim’s new leading power box AXIS. If you are interested in how the box performs in play, read my impression of the beta test unit here. The guys from ElectraStim informed me that they are currently fine-tuning the first update which will incorporate some input I gave them over my time with the beta unite. Once it is released, I will write an update article how the box improved. But now, in medias res of the unboxing…What sets AXIS apart from all other power boxes is the exterior packing. While a sleeve around the carrying case has been the industry standard (except for the unmarked corrugated fiberboard boxes ErosTek ships their power boxes in…) for years, ElectraStim decided to go with a full cardboard box with a glossy full color print. Since the full potential of AXIS does not really jump out, having more space for texts and pictures is a good thing. Though as a marketing professional, I would have wished for two or three enticing pictures on the back instead of just a dry yet information dense text.Opening up the outer packaging reveals a nice surprise: Instead of going for the already mentioned “industry standard” hard plastic case they went for a soft shell nylon zipper case. I like this innovation because I can store a little bit “crushable” case better in my play luggage than stiff one. Also, it protects the unit inside better.Inside, the layout is very traditional: The bottom half is filled with foam which features a cut-out for the power box itself and a larger one for accessories and cables. Inside the lid is a zipper closed mesh pocket for smaller accessories.What is noticeable compared to other power boxes is the lack of a battery. This is because AXIS has a build-in one which can be charged using a standard micro-USB cable. Through this design decision, the power box itself measured only 112x70x23mm and weighs just 116g play-ready.How much punch is packed in a really small sizes becomes apparent when placing AXIS amongst its “relatives”: It is only slightly larger and heavier than the Flick Duo which also features a build-in battery and considerably smaller and handier than the equally powerful but less feature-heavy and 9V battery-powered SensaVox.AIXS comes with a nifty belt clips which is a nifty accessory when playing with the movement sensor or accelerometer.Since AXIS is a dual-channel power box, it comes with two 120cm long 2mm socket-to-2mm pin leads. When ElectraStim contacted me, asking me if I would be interested in beta-testing something new and exciting I got my hopes up that they would take the big leap and change their lead system to the “industry standard” 3.5mm jack-to-4mm banana plug but I guess once you design your entire electrode ecosystem around a standard you cannot change it anymore so I will continue to carry adapters around with me.Like almost every power box, you get a set of pad electrodes which is a nice to have for play right out of the box.Since AXIS has quite sophisticated audio processing, the unit comes with a 100cm high quality line-in-cable which features gold-plated 3.5mm jacks for perfect transmission.I have to be honest, I am a bit amused when I found a 55cm long micro USB cable inside the box. Yes, it is essential for charging the power box (But where is the USB charger?) and for updating it, but I can hardly imagine a household without a single micro-USB cable. Maybe a pure Apple fanboy household.Speaking of updates, the small metal pin is needed to press the hardware button to initiate the update process when AXIS is connected to the computer.And speaking of the computer: You need a computer to read the full manual. Inside the case is just a little quick-start guide in English, French, German, Dutch and Spanish and the little flyer about how to get the extended 3-year warranty.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer VI –Mr Hankey Textured Plugs

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

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

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

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

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

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

The End of Kinky Tumblr – A Personal Farewell

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

First Look: E-Stim System Connect

Today at EroFame in Hannover, E-Stim Systems introduced a new way to remotely control their top range 2B power box. After basically spending the morning trying the new system out, let me give you a short intro how it works.

First, what do you need? The bottom obviously needs an E-Stim Systems 2b, their Digital Link Interface (already included in their 2B Bonus Pack formally know as the „Pro Pack“ which I reviewed here) and a computer. Currently the software and drivers are available for Windows 10 and macOS. They also supply a Linux software which is currently not yet supported. The top only needs a device connected to the internet with a browser, in this case a Samsung Android tablet.

After installing the drivers and the software, the bottom must connect his computer with the 2b using the USB cable and switch on the box.

After lunching the software and clicking the “Connect” button, it takes a few moments to pair the computer and the power box. This will only work when the computer is connected to the internet. Otherwise the status will stay “Not connected” even though the box and the computer are connected correctly.

Once this is done a 16 digit alpha-numerical code is display. Clicking on the number will copy the connection link which has to be sent to the top.

When clicking to the link, a website with the code already filled in opens. After the top clicks “Connect” the computer client’s indicator switches to “Connected”.

The website on the top’s device now allows to control all basic functions of the 2b like selecting the program, setting the output levels of the two channels or switching from low to high power modus.

Every input given on the website will also be displayed on the 2b’s screen.

Clicking “Stop” sets the output level on both channels to zero. The same happens when changing the program, just like when doing it on the 2b. What I am missing compared to their cold Commander software is a pop-up when (the sub) disconnects the box.

I was impressed how well the software worked on the release date. It is easy and intuitive to use and very responsive. Controlling the box in the same wifi and over mobile internet in the same country almost had no lag. I had a few problems with the desktop client crashing but no major issues. However, E-Stim Systems just announced the new service in a tweet which was to date retweeted twice until now and wrote nothing about it on their website’s landing page. On the 2b product page they still write about their now outdated “Commander” software. So I guess there were not that many people using their server. It remains to be seen how reliable the system works intercontinental or when the server are busy. I will revisit this review in a few months to give you an update.

Until then, I am very impressed by what they have done and it has given the 2b a real advantage towards their competitors. I can already see kinky geeks working on Linux based SBCs with 3G connection to create a mobile remote-controlled e-stim box.

If you are interested in the E-Stim System 2b, you can buy the Bonus Pack which comes with everything needed to connect it to your computer directly from E-Stim Systems for £378 or upgrade your existing 2b power box with the Bonus Pack for £89 or just by the Digital Link Interface for £69. The 2b Power Box and the Accessory Pack are also available at Mr S Leather for $399.95 resp $119.95.
