Weredog’s Rutt & Skylar

In last year’s anal toy special I already reviewed Weredog’s Gage and liked it a lot. But the toys I am getting the most reader questions about are actually the Rutt followed by the Skylar. So let’s take a look at these toys.

Construction

To put it short, Rutt is a stylized version of a canine dick. Typical for this kind of dong, the glans is dullish with a little tip at the bottom. The shaft above the knot bulges a bit. The knot itself has three bulges instead the two a realistic one would have. Below the knot there is a short shaft before a hinted pocket and two balls form the base.

Skylar’s Softly Tapering Glans

The Skylar is quite different. His glans is softly tapering and features a shallow glans rim just like a human glans. The long shaft is concave but the top’s curvature is lower than the bottom’s. This way the shaft bulges in the middle. The bottom is textured with six scale-like ridges while the lower half of the top features increasingly deeper bumps. The body sits on a big light textured base.

All of Weredogs toys are made out of high quality platinum silicone meaning they are easy to clean and hypo-allergenic. It comes on 24 colors, 22 standard ones and two Glow in the Dark shades (green and blue) which adds 10% to the base price. Under daylight they look off-white but once it gets dark they have the brightest and longest glow of all Glow in the Dark toys I have seen so far! For 10€ you can add a second color either as a marble (as my two toys are), swirl and split base. Weredog also offers a Surprise Me option for 19.48€ but only do that if you are very adventurous! I have tried that option several times with several manufacturers and was unimpressed. If you invest such a large sum of money into your dream anal toy, at least make it right the way you want it.

Rutt & Skylar Glowing in the Dark

Firmness-wise Weredog is on the softer side of the spectrum. Their soft is Shore 00-37, the medium Shore 00-41 and the firm Shore 00-45. The Shore 00 scale and the Shore A-scale which for example Bad Dragon uses are hard to compare but the Bad Dragon medium firmness is about as firm as Weredog’s firm. While Weredog like all major companies offers sample discs to try out the firmness at home, I am not the biggest fan of them. The larger a toy, the firmer it feels and the less flexible it will be. So choose the firmness with a grain of salt. What you don’t have to chose because it comes standard with every toy is a nifty storage bag.

Playing with the Skylar & Rutt

As already written, both toys are hard to compare. Counter intuitively the Skylar is actually a good trainings and pre-stretching toy – at least in soft or medium firmness. The long, tapering glans opens up the sphincter(s) softly for an easy entry without much pre-stretch. Despite the thick shaft, inside the rectum it is bendy enough to find its way towards the second sphincter and thus train your hole for depth play. Meanwhile the scales gently massage the first (an depending on the size second!) sphincter for added stimulation. Due to the strong curvature it is almost impossible to get prostate stimulation out of the scales. For this, the bumps on the top are good yet they are so shallow

Skylar’s Ridges

If you buy Skylar in firm, he becomes a toy for the experienced. The ridges feel so much more intense, a testee called my firm XL a “horny cheese grater”. Using quite some force, Skylar’s tip can twist. But this too little for gentle training. He will rearrange your guts! So a welcoming second sphincter and slow insertion is paramount when playing with a larger firm Skylar. Once he is in and you really need it hard, it is a great toy to unleash upon your hole to really trash it!

Rutt’s Dull Glans

Rutt in any case requires training and pre-stretching! This starts with the dullish glans which forces the sphincter open instead of slowly opening it up. The barrel-like shaft is untextured but since the diameter in the middle is 34% larger than the glans a bit of a stretch. From the glans runs a small ventral groove that can add stimulation when twisted inside the hole.

Though if the shaft and ventral groove excites you, you are not nearly prepared for what comes next! Compare to other K9 inspired dildos, Rutt’s knot top is quite dull. So if your hole is not loose enough, it will not get in! The knotting is made even more intense but the third bulge on top of the shaft! All in all, the shaft-knot-ratio is an insane 1:2 which made the Rutt the favorite for knot fucking among some of my testees.

Rutt’s Three Buldges Knot

A great feat of Rutt is that his shaft is relatively short. This means even not so depth-savvy size queens can enjoy the Rutt. Speaking of size-queens, a drop of bitterness is the sizing range on Rutt: While the large one is a bit small for experienced players, the XL is so much larger than I know only few who can take him. A size between those would be great!

Where to buy?

You can buy all Weredog toys at their website where you can customize them. The Skylar starts at 75€, the Rutt at 85€.

My First Bad Dragon Toy

My First Ever Bad Dragon Order: Vergil the Drippy Dragon, David the Werewolf and Apollo the Chimera

Story time with ToyTorture…

Following a couple of tweets last week, I have gotten a very interesting reader question which I am going to answer in this blog post: Which was my first Bad Dragon toy? So let’s take down a trip memory lane when I still was a student…

In the summer of 2016 I had just handed in my M.A. thesis, was anxiously waiting for the results and equally anxiously searching for a job. But after a few stressful months (and a nerve-wrecking finish of my thesis…) I also took some time off for myself and to think about ToyTorture.com. Started at a time when passive anal sex was an afterthought for me. This little project was started as an alternative to the countless websites testing anal toys. It should be a resource on quality BDSM toys, the website I was looking for when I took my first timid steps into the scene over 15 years ago.

But kinksters are multi-perverse and as my readership grew, the ranger of reader questions broadened. So into the streams of questions about Mr S hoods and Fetters restraints one name appeared more and more often: Bad Dragon. To be honest, back then I knew little about anal toys and their quality. At best I have bought branded toys from Beglo Prism, at worst random stuff from China which shape looked promising. Miot of the toys I used to get fistable, I would shy away from nowadays and have banned from my playroom!

My Current Bad Dragon Collection (Moved Together) Minus the Toys Currently on Loan at Friends

After a few weeks my curiosity got the better of me and I investigated the matter thoroughly. To be frank, I first was shocked! Really weirdly shaped dildos, stories about (fantasy) creatures’ sex life, merch worthy of a rock band! Back then fantasy modus was default and only had very peripheral contact with the furry or puppy scene. But my testing for ToyTorture.com has always pushed me forward as a kinkster (impact play anyone?), I decided to take a not-so-deep dive and chose three toys which very much reflected my play style and mindset: Simple stretch, no depth play and a playroom has to be ALL black and steel! A Bordeaux or brown paddle already distracted my esthetic! What a long way I have come.

My David with how I would Probably Order Him Today

So this is what I ended up with: A large Virgil in firm, an XL David in medium and an XL medium Apollo, all in… let’s say sedate colors. When I opened the parcel, the inside was nicely wrapped in purple silk paper which hit the sealed plastic bags. From Oxballs toys I knew that silicone attracts dust like nothing else. When I opened these plastic bags, I was a bit shocked how big and voluminous the toys were! I still had to learn to infer size and dimensions from dimensions on a website and product description. So my first Bad Dragons became the first toys of which for the review I mostly relied on review experience of play partners and friends to whom I sent the toy. On all toys I could take the glans. The first toy I knotted was Apollo in end of October when I was trying to relief my moving stress. Virgil followed two years later and riding his knot gave my me first involuntary prostate orgasm. It took me until this spring to completely conquer David.

My Virgil aside the his Natural Color I would choose Today

Despite this difficult start, these three toys started a love affair which has not ended yet. When I thought about my second triple I moved to a new stage in my life, had a playroom and suddenly color came into play which sparked even more interest in the review. Suddenly people were interested in “my” color combination because they want to order it too! And they were interested in my opinion on other BD toys. It sometimes feels, the more of their toys I review, the more reader questions I get, all on toys I have not reviewed.

So, quo vadis Bad Dragon @ ToyTorture.com? Looking at the reader questions table I keep, currently most of you are interested in reviews of canine dongs. Having only recently tamed my second sphincter dog dildos have not really been on my agenda but I hear you and try to quench this thirst for reviews as soon as possible.

My Apollo with Oone in Green Dancer, a Color that my Collection still Lacks Despite Green being my Favorite Color

This is a good example of how the review requests differ from my personal taste.  If it way my hole deciding which toys to review next, it would be Kelvin and Glyph (and personally I’d love an XL Fenrir because the Large is already so drool-inducing). But it looks like that the next names on the Bad Dragon review board will be Austin, Rex and Roland.

To conclude this little tale, would I place the exact same order as I did over five years ago? Yes and no. One thing that has not change since these first batch of naughty wyrms is my taste for firm anal toys (though I have started to admit that then it comes to depth play, there is a place for softer, yet not too soft toys). But color-wise I would be more daring! David would come in his Signature, glow in t he dark pattern, for Virgil I would also go with Signature (well, since he sounds hot in XL, I might one day get him that way) and Apollo? Good question. His Signature is a bit wild, so I’d probably go one o f the many glow in the dark pattern Bad Dragon offers. But since there are still so many different shapes to explore, buying second versions of toys I already have in my collection is still way ahead.

Also, Bad Dragon is not the only toy company in my dungeon. At this period of time I was introduced to the SquarePegToys Acorn by a friend. But this is a story for another day.

Concluding this Year’s IDAHOBIT Greating with Colorful Dildos from Many Manufacturer

Kiwi Spoon

The Tupperware Kiwi Spoon

Vendor: Tupperware

Playing hard and long is almost like working out. Because of that it is important to eat well. And what better fruit to eat than a kiwi? With its high content of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and potassium it is ideal to recover after a night of play and especially at events where fetish dinners have to be coordinated with pre party clean-out, the enzyme actinidain helps the digestion. Also, with its fluffy furry and anal bead like shape, the kiwi is definitely one of the kinkiest fruits. But sometimes a kiwi can be hard to eat so let’s see if this device is helpful.

Detail of the Toothing

Construction

The kiwi spoon is made out durable and sturdy ABS, polypropylene to be exact, in a fresh and gay lime green. Cleaning-wise it beats almost every toy I have ever reviewed! Just toss it in the dishwasher and be done with it. Also, being made by Tupperware, it will most likely outlast any toy in my collection (well, except the aluminum paddles probably) so it is something that you grandchildren will still enjoy! Though from a desing point of view, it is a bit dull. There is no texture or graphics on the backside. For a tool which to a certain extend is supposed to appeal to ABDLs eating mushy things, this is a lost opportunity.

Detail of the Spoon Dish

While form follows function on the Kiwi Spoon, the design is particular. Unlike a traditional spoon where spoon dish is in the middle, the Tupperware spoon as one straight edge at the top and the rest bulges towards the bottom. The first 45mm of the 120mm overall length are occupied by a 35mm wide and 5mm spoon dish.

From the dish’s apex on, the spoon’s is a concave arch with a minimum body diameter of 22mm for better grip and handling. At the end of the body it bulges a little bit so even when you attack the kiwi with vigor, your hands do not slip. But despite this safety feature I would not advice to eat your fruit with too much force because the firm of the concave arch and the bulge feature toothing and slipping over the toothing is painful.

Eating with the Kiwi Spoon

In theory the Tupperware Kiwi Spoon sounds like a compelling kink event traveling companion: It is small and light, easily stored in a toiletry bag and so always at hand when needed. The whole package sounds also compelling because the toothing promises the ability to cut a kiwi in half – even when traveling just with carry-on. Well… this only works if your kiwi has the right ripeness degree! Often the toothing is too dull (and thus the carry-on capability) or you squash the fruit. Regardless if you want to cut the fruit in half, skin it or if you try to cut the stalk from the skin, in most cases it either doesn’t work or ends in a big mess. Naturally, once you cut the fruit in half, you need to clean the tool thoroughly before using it as a spoon. Otherwise you fingers will be very sticky.

Detail of the Toothing

Also the spoon dish is only mediocre. The design is great. The curvature and depth is perfect for carving out most of the delicious fruit flash in one scoop. But again only in case you have a perfect, DIN & ISO normed kiwi. And let’s be honest: Thinking back to all those kink event hotels and post LAB brunches, how often did you have a sweetspot-ripe kiwi? Because as soon as the pulp becomes too firm, a metal spoon is the better alternative. And while the dish is lavishly dimensioned, the handle is too short for real leverage and digging the fruit flesh out of the skin cup. Because your fingers are quite close to the fruit, you have to be really careful during your digging! Otherwise juice spills onto your hand and you have to wash them.

In terms of versatility, the Kiwi Spoon is almost a one-trick pony. It works perfectly with green and yellow kiwis and eating dragon fruit can is most of the time a joyful experience. One testee reported great experiences eating a banana. So if you are weird like my friends and eat a banana, go for that spoon. Also pomegranates are eaten easily with this spoon – if you are sitting naked in the shower! Otherwise you will have to throw away your cloths and renovate the room you are sitting in! Looking at other spoonable fruits like grapefruits it fails completely and for melons it is simply too small.

Conclusion: Okish with kiwis, horrible with other fruits.
Pros Cons Where to get Price
Deep spoon dish Spoon too dull Tupperware Some money, around 6€
Small and light Toothing does not really cut
Can be put into carry-on
In expensive Handle too short

Merry Christmas you happy perverts!

This is usually the spot where I am expressing my hope that after all the Christmas debaucheries you get up to some nasty fun and maybe get try some of your new kinky toys. But this year is different.

Like many, I am spending Christmas alone. In my case for the first time because travelling to my parents or even my BF’s family would have been too risky. So at least at my playroom there is no one to get down and dirty with. And to be frank, my mood and headspace would not be there. Most likely that will change on Sunday when my partner will come visiting me.

2020 has been a very challenging year on all levels – personally, for the society and economy and the world as a whole. Sometimes I wonder what I would have done differently if I knew a year ago what would happen over the course of the next 12 months. But there is a silver lining on the horizon and I am certain that sometime next year we will be able to do all the things we now so painfully miss.

As dire as 2020 has been in total, it has been a great year for ToyTorture.com. Locked down, people started to explore their kinky side – both alone and with their partner(s). So if you are one of those new readers, I especially welcome you and hope you are here to stay! I have never gotten so many reader questions, got so many visitors and gained so many Twitter followers – hitting 10k just this morning -, that I am humbled. What started out as a little past time project when I was still a BA student grew over the years into something so much bigger! Over the years, I have grown as a person and as a kinkster, exploring things I would have never imagined. You are pushing and driving me and I am grateful for that!

But as the years passed, my life beyond ToyTorture.com has changed quite a bit. Over 4 years ago I left university. Working full time in the job I have studied for, I started a career in a completely different field than kink and sex toys. And with growing responsibilities, the time on my hand is getting scarcer.

I am not sure yet how this development will affect ToyTorture.com. But what I can assure you: Despite steadily and steeply growing KPIs, I will not turn this website into a business! I will not become an influencer who needs to push you towards certain toys to meet marketing agreements or make affiliate commissions. You will always get my honest, unapologetic opinion on toys! They still will mostly be positive because I want a happy mood here and always considered ToyTorture.com a lighthouse in a sea of badly made, dangerous and knocked off toys. And as long as there are manufacturer who will not send me review samples because I am too critical or do not “promote” products enough, I know that I am on the right way.

Like every year, I am taking a creative break after Christmas for a few weeks and month. This is especially necessary this year, because getting review experience during the lockdown has been a challenge. But I will be back!

Until then, stay safe and well! I wish you all the best for the next year and look forward to seeing you here back again soon! In the meantime, follow me on Twitter to keep up with my kinky and not-so kinky life.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer IV – Mr S Leather Savage Hoods

The Mr S Leather Savage Hood

It is amazing how quickly this year’s Advent season flew buy and I am already penning the last ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer for this year. And I did safe one of the best for last.

Somehow through my gear purchases and preferences this heavy bondage special had the character of “heavy bondage meets skin access”. While overheating is a real problem it creates is a goal conflict with full coverage. So a common to last week’s review way “Great piece of gear but I wish it would cover more skin.” Luckily there is a compromise and it comes from Mr S: Their Savage hood range.

They are made out of Mr S’ soft and rich smelling leather (leather Bag hood smellgasm anyone?) and closed by lacing so they wrap tightly around the head! The leather is completely perforated so air and a bit of light can pass through the material. I briefly had the chance to try one of these on BLF Easter 2019 and the perforation allows for some ventilation and transpiration. Of cause not as much as the Strap Face Cage or a muzzle would. And wearing it in the bright sun is still an issue. But it is a massive improvement over a bag hood for example.

The Savage Sucks Hood

Furthermore, especially the Savage hood is the piece of bondage/ leather gear that will bring you closest to the smooth, full coverage gimp look only achievable by rubber. There are no nose holes or other cutouts that disturbs the plain leather look. This makes this hood great for dehumanizing subs. Or for anonymous tongue worshipping play with the Savage Sucks.

The plain Savage hood costs $229.95 at Mr S Leather, the Savage Sucks version costs $249.95.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer III – Fetters Portable Bondage Board

Fetters Portable Bondage Board equipped with Cuff Restraints

This year again, many kinksters will wish for their own playroom for Christmas. Having lived in dorms and with roommates, I am painfully aware that this wish often takes time to become true. So as the third Christmas gift recommendation I want to show you the Fetter Portable Bondage Board.

The board measures 107x612cm and features a total of 14 D-rings, 6 on the side and 2 on each end. So regardless if you are a rigger or using cuff style restraints with carabineers like me, it offers opportunities for many different bondage positions. Since it is thickly padded it is comfortable to kneel or lay in it for extended periods of time. As a cover material, you can choose between leather or a water- and oil-proof material. While looking at all the great leather gear I own from Fetters, the leather quality will be top notch, soft and smelling awesome, I would recommend the Rubluxe. From this material sweat can be easily wiped off and the bondage board can double as an underpacking for fisting – regardless if you prefer Crisco or excess Jlube.

The Rubluxe cover makes the foldable Bondage Board Waterproof

So far, it is also a good piece of bondage furniture for people with a playroom. But: The board can be folded in the middle! Then it only measures 53x61cm and at 10cm height, it can be easily stores away under a bed or in a wardrobe (IKEA Pax are 70cm deep ;)). At 10kg, it is a bit on the heavier side to travel with. But especially if you travel by car, I am certain you will get your effort’s worth at events like Folsom Europe.

Regardless of the cover material, the Fetters Portable Bondage Board costs £245 at Regulation in London.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer II – House of Bascanio Muzzles

Comparison of the Four Different Muzzle Types

There are few individual toys I get so many reader questions about than the House of Bascanio Muzzles. Not a week passes by without a question in my inbox about their quality and play properties and which one I would recommend for a specific scene. Sadly I could not get my hands on one or two of them. But since I have heard good things about them I at least want to give them an honorary mention in the Christmas gift tips this year.

The Back of a House of Bascanio M5 Muzzle with Attached Bulldog Harness

House of Bascanio currently has the broadest range of muzzles for males with 7 varieties in production. Their muzzles itself did not reinvent the wheel. They all follow the basic design that Sinvention popularised over two decades ago. But the House of Bascanio takes the design to the next level. On the higher range models all their straps are made out of garment leather so they hug the skull tighter for less wiggle room and stronger bondage. They also offer a greater scope and ranger of size customization for a better fit. The more elaborate models feature padding all over the muzzle for more comfort when lying down, a thicker and wider collar (the M2 and M3 even has a design come close to a posture collar for stricter bondage) or locking pins for securing the muzzle. Depending on the model, there are considerably more D-rings which as you know if you have been reading my blog for some time is always better. Speaking if anchor points: Some models can be ordered with a bulldog harness connected to them for more security and a uniform look.

The range of the House of Bascanio muzzles starts at CAD209 and goes up to CAD899 for the top of the line model connected to a padded chest harness.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer I – Cuffed Classic Rubber Restraints

The Cuffed Classic Restraints Color Range

It has become a time-honored tradition that during the period we call Advent in Germany which means the four Sundays before Christmas I write about some toys that I would love to review but not yet had a chance to add to my playroom.

Two weeks ago I reviewed the Rubstraints from Cuffed and to put is mildly that review apparently stroke a chord. With the Segufix lock and all black or authentic medical restraint color scheme they mean business.

The Cuffed Classic Restraints Full Set

But rubber has always had the appeal of leathers cheekier, more lighthearted and more colorful brother and Cuffed caters to that with their Classic line. With a small locking pin instead of a Segufix lock and D-rings instead of gates they look more like classic cuff restraints – just like their name implies. But the greatest feat: They come in color! The piping around the edge and the body comes in blue, gree, yellow, orange, red and white so you’ve almost got a rainbow. This color range should cover the major (accent) colors used in rubber gear if you want to accessorize your outfit or are pedantic about matching colors when tied down. The Classic Restraints come for neck, biceps, wrist, thigh and ankle. So if you are VERY color-brave, you can use them to signal at least four different hanky codes. And if you ask nicely, I am sure Cuffed will be able to make you restraints also in teal, fuchsia, beige or whatever else floats your boat.

The range starts at 89€ for a puppy collar and ends at 199€ for thigh restraints. If you are interested in the entire set, they sell that for 675€ though then you have to write an e-mail for your color mix and match hanky set 😉

Dragon & Buddy

Toy Properties

Form: Dildo
Material: Platinum Silicone
Colors: 16 colors in different configuration
Firmness: Medium to Firm
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: KnotMe

Most custom dildo companies reside in the USA. So if you live in Europe and order from them, you have to factor in high shipping and custom charges. At the end of this Anal Toy Special I am delighted to review toys from two manufacturers who are based inside the EU.

Construction

KnotMe is in based in Krakow, Poland, fighting against the an increasingly hostile conservative social and political climate.

KnotMe Dragon and Buddy

As you have probably have guessed already when I review an anal toy, they make all their dildos out of platinum silicone. This means their delicious dongs are 100% body safe, hypoallergenic and easy to clean – as long as you stick to water- or oil-based lubed. The silicone oil in silicone and hybrid lubes will dissolve the material. You clean these toys by soaking them in warm dish-soap water, brush off all residue lube, dry and spray sanitizer on them and store them away not touching other toys.

Detail of the Suction Cup

When it comes to possible configurations, KnotMe is on par with most other manufacturers. Firmness-wise you can choose between soft (Shore A2 so a bit softer than Bad Dragon Soft), medium (Shore A5 like Bad Dragon Medium) and firm (Shore A10, a bit former than Bad Dragon Firm) regardless of the size. They do not offer split firmness. Colorwise you can choose between 16 colors, both in standard and pearl variety. Regardless of the variety, compared to other manufacturer the colors look a bit dull and flat. In the end, it is up to personal taste. Some testees enjoyed the more sedate and subtle looks of the KnotMe toys, other liked to popping and vibrant Bad Dragon style. To color the toy it can either have one color, have a split between base and body or have a marble look called mix which I chose for my toys. Some toys can be equipped with a suction cup for an additional 10€. As with any other manufacturer I implore you to choose this option. In the shower, on the playroom floor, on the thigh of your boy friend… A suction cup is just too useful to safe the money and not having it! Some toys like the Dragon automatically come with a suction cup build in their base.

Toy Name Size Diameter Glans Diameter Knot Insertable Length Overall Length
Buddy S 32mm 63mm 140mm 175mm
M 40mm 75mm 165mm 210mm

Detail of Buddy’s Canine Glans

Playing with Buddy and Dragon

For this review I chose the two most requested toys from their 10-mold range: The Buddy and the Dragon. Both have the unusual yet nifty property that their glans diameter is about the same as the shaft diameter above the knot which makes for an intense knotting experience.

Though Buddy is the rougher of the two. Starting out with a canine-inspired pointy tipped, yet overall dull glans with a significant glans drop on the sides and bottom, Buddy does not smoothly open up the sphincter. The shaft however is a bit anti-climatic. It is slightly convex and bulges a bit towards the bottom. There is also a faint hint of a ventral groove but you REALLY have to focus to feel it with your fingers, let alone your sphincter. The main event resides below the shaft: Two massive slightly oval spheres which form the knot. Even being experienced with anthropomorphic dildos, it is hard for me to find the right words to express how intense the knotting feels!  Since the spheres are compressed on the top and the bottom, their top is flatter and thus duller than you would expect. The knotting is even intensifies by the small recess of the shaft’s bulging above the knot. This is a nice design feature if you just play with the shaft. It offers a “resting” places and emphasis the shaft’s sublet stretching sensation for the more inexperienced player. For the people wanting to take the knot, this pushes the shaft-knot ration to almost 1:2.1, giving even Bad Dragon’s Fenrir a run for his money! Below the knot there is just a short, about sphincter-wide resting space before flowing into an antro-base with a fur look-a-like texture. But the flatish bottom of the knot helps to lock it in place.

Buddy’s Knot

“Lock in place” is a good key word because this is actually what some testees have done with Buddy. Compared to his MASSIVE knot, the shaft is relatively short. So Buddy is the ideal buddy if you want an intense stretch without having to conquer depth. In the large version that I have got, it is just short enough for most testees to be worn without pushing deeper. The base is also smallish enough to more or less fit discreetly and comfortably between the cheeks and more important, not creating leverage. While Buddy is truly a dildo, some knot aficionado will find some use in him as a plug.

For (piston) fucking, Buddy is a bit cumbersome. The base it too small and folds easily if you have chose the suction cup. On the other hand, the suction cup is really strong so if you attach Buddy to a smooth surface, it will hold even during a vigorous fucking.

Dragon plays a different game than his Buddy (sorry, I try to make this the last “buddy” pun of this review. Promise!).  This starts with the tip which has an overall pointy cone-shape. Like the entire dildo it is oval so through twisting and turning inside the anus, it can open up the hole. Below the glans, there are four v-shaped grooves texturing the shaft. They are wide and deep enough to stimulate the anus, especially when fucking more forcefully. As for the prostate, they are not prominent enough to really “punch” it. It is more a gentle “scratching” massage.

Dragon’s Glans

The shaft gently flows into a smooth knot which extended only towards the top side; the shaft’s and knot’s bottom are almost straight. Except for a ridge extending from the shaft’s bottom over it, the knot is completely smooth. At the bottom it tapers smoothly towards the stem where the anus can rest after the knotting. Don’t get me wrong, due to the size and shape, it is a heftyish knot to take. But it tapers so nicely that it can be taken and pushed out easily once you the hole is loose enough.

The base is round, anthro-textured and always features a STRONG suction cup. While Buddy is for the extremer play, Dragon is actually a good starting point if you want to get into knot and anthrodildo play. Both the glans and the knot go in easily (looseness provided) and it has a bit texture to get hooked on it but not too much to make taking the toy difficult.

Dragon’s Knot

Where to buy?

Like all custom-order toys, KnotMe sells only through their website. This way you can configurate the toy just the way you want it. Buddy starts at 60€ and goes up all the way to 160€ in XL with all options selected. Dragon starts at 70€ but ends already at 115€.

Kink’s Out for Summer – ToyTorture.com Summer Break

Like every summer, I am taking a few weeks off from reviewing toys in order to travel and fully indulge into the fair weathered days & white nights. Ususally I return to the reviewing schedule at Folsom Europe. But since this year everything is a bit different, I might be back a little bit earlier.

So what can you look forward to in the second half of 2020? With solitary play still playing a big role in our lifes, I will kick off the new season with an Anal Toy Special, reviewing toys from beloved brands like Bad Dragon, Mr Hankey’s Toy or SquarePeg but also introducing new ones to ToyTorture.com like Weredog. Coming closer to Christmas and the Christmas bonus shopping season, I will take a look at once-in-a-lifetime purchases like Mr S Straitjackets or elaborate hoods. And in between I will sprinkle impact toys, bondage gear, maybe a massager or even another e-stim power box, making ToyTorture.com the mixed bag of perversions as you know it!

While there won’t be new reviews, I am still online on a regular basis. So visit my Recon or PlanetRomeo profile, follow me on Twitter or send me an e-mail if you need to advice.
