Leather Suspension Harness

The Blackjump Leather Suspension Harness

Vendor: Blackjump

Construction

Like with all heavy duty bondage items, the first look should always be on the material and manufacturing quality in order to see if the gear will actually detain a struggling sub. This is even more important with a suspension harness because an equipment failure will not only ruin a scene but can potentially cause injuries!

This Blackjump model is beyond any doubt. All straps are made out of sturdy, 2mm thick and 50mm wide belt leather (except the one across the chest which is 30mm wide). Points with crucial load bearing or extreme kinetic stress either feature double leather layers or four instead of just two rivets. Equally important is the protection of fragile and vulnerable body parts from the stiff leather belts digging in. For this thick and stiff foam under soft leather is used so even under a lot of pressure you do not feel the leather and metal below the padding. The hardware is also supreme: The D-rings are welded and made out of thick steel, the buckles are sturdy roller buckles.

All these ingredients are mixed together into what appears fairly simple design which in the details shows a lot of thought. The torso part is basically two belts with holes on both ends, riveted to an X with one rivet on the back so the angle between the two belts can adjust easily depending on the sub’s body size. To protect collarbone and the shoulders, there are pads which can be attached to the belts with snaps. Though mine have been lost when I have bought this harness from a friend; I need to reorder them again. On the apex of both belts there is a D-ring from which this harness gets suspended. Just above the belt holes in front there is a horizontal strap riveted with a roller buckle to tighten the harness in front of the chest.

Using four buckles, these straps are connected to the piece de resistance of this suspension harness: The roughly bone-shaped, padded pelvic-protection. Since there are no muscles and rarely a thick layer of fat over the pelvis, this body area is very sensitive to abrasions. Because of this it has to be padded, either through a pad (like Mr S does) or through a padded belt (like Fetters does). Blackjump goes further. He extends the padding over the stomach region onto the lower rib cage to also protect this fragile body part. In order to maintain the flexibility and adjustability of the harness, the padding is not only ergonomically shaped, but middle part which goes over the stomach section is with 60mm only 40% as wide as the 140mm wide padding to the pelvis and rib cage. A little drawback of the heavy duty design is that the rivets which connect the belts with the padding are not covered by leather.

Detail of the Padding Protecting the Pelvis and Rib Cage

The four buckles on the upper end of the padding allow to adjust the harness the bottom’s body size. It is very adjustable; I suspended people from 1,69m to 2,05m and thin twinks to heavier bears with no problem. From my experience with leather as a material and without any guarantee I would say the breaking load of this harness is somewhere between 150kg and 180kg. Below the buckles of the back there is also a D-ring riveted. To my knowledge it is the only fetish suspension who has these D-rings but they are very important when the sub is not flying high (see below). On the bottom there is a belt attached which go around the thigh. To also protect this delicate body area (see below), there a 100mm wide and 350mm long padded “sleigh” running on the strap so regardless of the length adjustment is always cover the back part of the thigh.

At least when my friend bought the harness some 10 years ago, it came with a sturdy suspension bar. On both ends quick links are welded onto the bar, the actually suspension is attached to a triangle ring welded onto the middle. From the quick links 350mm of 6mm wire gauge chain are suspended. The actually harness is suspended using pear clips which the avid reader knows I am not a big fan off. Though since they are never actually opened the sharpness does not really play a role. And at least the ones I have a certified for 230 daN. So I can hardly imagine a strong, heavy muscle bear exceeding the dynamic breaking load of 469kg + safety margin…

Playing with the Suspension Harness

For me suspension bondage, especially in a harness and using rope, is the ultimate form of mindfuck bondage: You are free to move around yet unable to escape. To achieve this level of mindfuck, the sub needs to be suspended so high that his toes can’t touch the ground and his hands can’t touch anything. If you do not have a gymnasium for a playroom, this can be difficult. The extreme situation is my playroom where some subs have to crouch to get into the harness with the suspension bar above them. To still get the sub helpless, put ankle restraints on him and connect them to the D-rings on the back. Depending on the degree of helplessness, fetter the hands using suspension restraints to the suspension bar or to the D-ring to which the thigh belt is connected. In the latter position for added stress, upper arm restraints can be connected to the back D-rings. However, I would not recommend to subject to sub to too much pain in this situation because due to the limited upper arm movement  he can quickly pull something.

The design of the straps and belts allow for maximum accessibility for sensation play over TT and CBT to spanking and even flogging. Particularly fun are e-stim scenes with movement triggered units like the Electrastim Flick Duo or Axis. Once the sub starts to work the pain out, self-sustaining system of constant movement is set in motion which keeps the stimulation coming and coming.

Detail of the Suspension Bar and Chains

The feeling of flying can also heighten the sensations of more traditional play like getting fucked or fisted. The free movement of the harness creates a way stronger swinging action than a sling does. While a suspension harness seems like a natural match for a milking machine, I made not the best experience with my Venus 2000. The body’s natural reaction to an intense sensation is flinching, pulling the penis out of the receiver. Just suspending the receiver from the chest strap also proved to instable. I have seen people converting cock sheaths into attachment points for the receiver so this might work.

Detail of the Thigh Padding

As hot and fun suspension bondage is, it is also one of the most dangerous forms of bondage due to the risk of suspension trauma. In short suspension bondage is the blood gathering in the legs when being suspended for an extended period of time which will cause a circulatory collapse. Symptoms are sweating, breathlessness, dizziness, feeling sick, dropping blood pressure or numbness. If any of these symptoms occur, get the sub out of the harness but NEVER LAY HIM DOWN! During suspension trauma the heart tries to pump the blood up with ever increasing force. Laying him down would cause the blood to shoot into the torso and brain, basically killing him! This is called rescue death. To prevent this, for the first 20 to 30 minutes, keep the torso in an upright position. A suspension trauma is not a “miner circulation crash” but a serious medical emergency and requires professional help! Drugs which increase blood pressure and/ or open up the blood vessels like poppers can increase the likelihood of suspension trauma. While the thick padding on critical areas makes the appearing of a suspension trauma unlikely, a suspended sub (like all bound subs) should never be left alone and a suspension scene should never go over extended periods of time. Furthermore it is important to talk with the sub about the potential symptoms before a scene so he can draw the top’s attention to problems early enough and does not dismiss them out of mislead will to be obedient.

Speaking of safely suspending someone: If you want to really lift the sub after fettering him in the harness, I highly recommend getting a professional winch for liability reasons. Considering dynamic loads, you should get one with over 1,000kg carrying load!

Conclusion: Bes fetish suspension harness I have come across yet.

Leather Straitjacket

The HML Fetish Leather Straitjacket

Vendor: HML Fetish

After the past weeks were all about anal toys, the Sundays will follow a different tune: It will be all about heavy bondage. So expect reviews of sleepsacks, hoods, extravagant restraints – and straitjackets.

One of the most common questions in the realm of heavy bondage is: Where do I get a good, reasonably priced straitjacket? Despite most heavy bondage items like sleepsacks or straitjackets are once-in-a-life-time purchases, not everybody can afford the mid-four-digit price tags of Mr S or Fetters straitjackets. On the other end of the price spectrum there are cheaply made models from Asia which cardboard-like leather from questionable sources and unreliable metal fixtures. So I did some research for something in between and found this model from HML Fetish in Bremen.

Detail of the Straps for Tightening the Straitjacket at the Back

Construction

Since a straitjacket is most likely be worn on the bare skin in order not to overheat, let’s talk about the material first. HML Fetish uses high quality, European sourced cow hides so you do not have to worry about Chrome-6. The leather of the jacket itself is 1mm thick which is a good compromise between the feeling of being clad in leather, the leather fitting well around the body and temperature control .The inside of the jacket is not lined but since all metal fixtures are made out of stainless steel, neither allergies nor rust should be a too big problem. Knowing HML Fetish I am pretty sure they can line the jacket with leather if you ask them. Despite the price point just below 1.000€, you get premium features like thickly quilted leather on the elbows which is a nice touch and keeps the elbows protects when the sub is made to crawl on the ground while being fettered. Another great feature are the nipple flats which measure roughly 10x10cm. Six sturdy snaps are keeping them in place so even a very actively struggling sub cannot get them off.

Detail of the Quilting over the Elbows

Like most straitjackets, the HML Fetish one is closed by a zipper. Then going down from head to waist there is a belt around the collar, one going around the chest and upper arm and one around the waist. These straps are led but leather straps riveted onto the body. On the back, two additional belts going over the zipper to tighten the jacket properly around the body. Like all straitjackets the arms are crossed over the chest with a belt strap on the end of the left arm and a buckle strap on the right arm. Once they are closed together behind the back, there is a strap in the middle of the front to secured them tightly and limit any potential wiggle room. Finally, there are two straps which run through the crotch to prevent the more than unlikely possibility that with crossed arms the jacket could be pulled off.

All straps are made out of 1.5mm thick cow hides which is doubled, glued and sowed all around which gives the straps a nice quality feel and touch of craftsmanship. The belt holes are reinforced with stainless steel rivets so the buckle’s pin does not damage the leather. The strap around the waist, the collar and the once securing the arm in front of the torso are about 40mm wide, all other straps are 25mm.

Detail of the D-Ring at the Bottom of the Body

There is only one D-ring on the entire straitjacket: In the middle of the torso, just above the waist seam. Again, when ordering this straitjacket, get in touch with the guys at HML Fetish and they will place D-rings where you desire and need them. My recommendation (from the way I play) would be at least three at the collar (center, left and right) and replacing the leather leading loops on each side of the waist and just below the shoulder so you can tie the sub between two posts.

The straitjacket comes in sizes from S to XXL and are pretty adjustable. So when you are a top who entertains different body types of subs, I recommend getting a largerish size; you can always tighten it afterwards.

Detail of the Tit Flaps

Playing with the Straitjacket

Being put into a straitjacket is probably one of the most intense bondage experience once can have. Unlike a sleepsack where the sub is still somewhat in control of the putting on process (like slipping the arms into the arm pocket, adjusting the leg divider, etc.), once he has put the body one, the top is in control. He can move around the arms and with a leash even the sub at his will. While in a sleepsack the sub will most likely remain in the area where he lay down, in a straitjacket the sub is mobile and can be forced quiet easily into environments and situation the top wants him to be – regardless of how much the sub dislikes it. This mental aspect is one of the greatest appeals of a straitjacket.

Detail of the Jockstrap-Style Crotch Staps

An important element of it, is the fettering process; the straps being tightened around the subs, gradually limiting the control over his arms and torso. While the HML Fetish straitjacket technically does this well, it falls a bit short on the sensation side. Since most straps are only 25mm wide, the tightening sensation is not as strongly felt as on most other straitjackets. I would describe it this way: Compare the impact sensation of a wood paddle and a thuddy flogger. The pain intensity might be the same, but the flogger with the sheer amount of kinetic energy will shatter and thrust you against the St. Andrews cross while the paddle “just” hurts. Quantity wise the effect it the same, but the quality wise there is a lot more going on with the flogger or in regards of straitjackets with wider straps. I have talked to the guys at HML Fetish about this and they the thinner belts are an aesthetic decision, leaving more of the body visible. But most of my testees said that the fettering process was disappointingly unspectacular so I guess you again have to ask during the ordering process if you can get wider straps if you prefer them.

Detail of the Strap Fettering the Arms in Front of the Torso

Again compared to a sleepsack a straintjacket is the perfect combination of active play and intense bondage sensation. And the HML Fetish one excels at that. With the relatively large tit flaps, you cannot only attach clamps easily but even do wax play when you are a bit cautious (and the sub is sound tightly enough so he cannot move). Due to the not too thick leather, lying on a spanking bench is comfortable and the crotch straps make a nice jockstrap-like framing of the cheeks for impact play. This straitjacket’s collar is even soft enough to just be loosely closed if you are putting a hood or muzzle on which already has a collar.

Conclusion: High quality made straitjacket with too few D-rings and a little bit too thin straps.

Bad Dragon’s Trucker, Sleipnir & Egg

From Left to Right Bad Dragon’s Sleipnir, Egg and Tucker

Vendor: Bad Dragon

I intended to post this review weeks ago, before ToyTorture.com went on Spring Break. But the move to a new server took longer than anticipated. So here it is: The first review on the new server is also the final review of the Anal Toy Special which is about a manufacturer who according to quality and quantity of reader questions you apparently can’t get enough from: Bad Dragon.

Material

Bad Dragon toys clearly fall in the category of premium anal toys. This is largely due to how and what out of they are made. While they have some inventory in stock, there are no off the rack toys but each and every toy is individually made by hand in Phoenix, AZ. While the clearance section is a good way to get an inspiration what is possible, I usually recommend to configure a Bad Dragon. If you invest in such a high price toy, it should be really yours.

The Bad Dragon Logo Cast into the Egg’s Base

Speaking of configuration possibilities, you can choose between three degrees of firmness: Soft, medium and firm. XL toys are not available in firm and for toys which do not have to stand up like an insertable there is also the super-soft option. Choosing the right firmness is weighing off different aspects: Soft toys are good for not yet well trained asses or really large toys because the sphincter can deform the toy a bit to fit well. However the softer the material the less stability a toy has so especially with long toys there is a chance they will collapse easily. The firmness also determines who the texture feels. Cast in soft silicone a ridge might easily flap away while in firm the sphincter might struggle to take it. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is, the larger the toy, the harder it will feel. In order to get an impression of the different firmness degrees, Bad Dragon sells a set of sample discs.

Bad Dragon Sleipnir

Another important element of configuring an individual Bad Dragon toy is the coloring. There are literally countless option from basic and subtle uni colors over extravagant fades and marbling to unique designs which are either designed and available only for a specific toy or available for a limited time. The colors will not fade or discolor over time which is due to the material being used.

All Bad Dragon toys are made out of platinum silicone which in the last few years replaced vinyl as my favorite anal toy material for several reasons. The platinum in the term refers to the catalyst used for curing the silicone. For cheaper silicone tin is used which has all sorts of negative side effects while platinum as a noble metal is body safe and hypoallergenic. Cleaning is also easier because platinum silicone being able to withstand acid or heat. While in theory you can autoclave all Bad Dragon toys, putting them in the dish washer or throw them in hot water with dish soap also does the trick. In this case, the super smooth surface of platinum silicone makes the washing easy so they are the ideal toy to quickly clean between swapping the person taking them up the butt.

Bad Dragon’s Egg

While platinum silicone can withstand a lot, do not use silicone or hybrid lubes on them! The silicone oil in them will disintegrate the silicone and ultimately the toy.  I often get messages from people who have been using their silicone toys with silicone lube and did not have any problems. But I get as many messages of desperate people who’s toys got sticky and floppy. So I recommend to be better safe than sorry. Platinum silicone is fine with any kind of water- and oil-based lube. My lube of choice for the silicone’s smooth surface are slicker, stickier lubes like Elbow Grease H2O Thick Gel or Vet Gel, especially Kerbel Gleitschleim (which is a very German thing I assume).

Shape

At the moment Bad Dragon offers 65 different anal toys, each year introducing some new ones and phasing out others. While in theory the toys are gender neutral, some are more designed with prostates or a clitoris in mind. One day I might write a buying guide to Bad Dragons to elaborate this further.

The basic size range of Bad Dragon is S to XL which covers the range from a small dick to (double) fisting. Some toys are also available in Mini or just a one-size toy. So do not fall in love with a design on the product overview page to quickly, you might be disappointed that your favorite dragon dick does not come in an interesting size.

Bad Dragon’s Tucker

Speaking of dragon dick: As the name “Bad Dragon” already implies, their toys are inspired by anthropomorphic creatures. They started out with just dragons but now feature demons, aliens, werewolves, unicorns, octopi or real animals like horses and dogs. Being inspired by (fantasy) animals most dildos feature a knot (a bulge at the bottom of the shaft). What (almost) all toys have in common is some degree of texturing which imitate veins and scales through bumps and ridges. These elements do not only increase the diameter but also make the toy harder to take. So always take the “deepness” of the texture into consideration when looking at the maximum diameter and pondering if you can take the toy. There is a strong interaction with the firmness and texture. The firmer the silicone, the more intense the texture will be felt. This does not necessarily mean that texture is felt more intense when the toy is in firm because the flapping/ giving in on a soft toy can be more stimulation than to chafe over an unforgiving form ridge. As Bad Dragon ventured more into “mainstream” they introduced tamer toys like the Egg (see below) a Unicorn’s horn.

Detail of Sleipnir’s Ridges

When looking at the detailed size charts and choosing a larger size, it is important to keep in mind that the toys scale proportionally: The texturing gets deeper and thus more intense, the knot (most of the time the largest diameter of the shaft) moves down further. Since most anal enthusiasts can easily take larger diameter but are not well with taking big toys deeply, the knot might be out of reach due to being too low.

To some toys, two special features can be added. The first is the suction cup. If you can add it, get it! It makes playing and riding the toy much easier. As a material, silicone is somewhat sticky on its own (that’s the reason why no matter how thoroughly you clean it, there is ALWAYS dust on the toys!) but the strong cup which is integrated into the base design keeps the dildo in place (or sticking on the bathroom wall), even when riding it vigorously.

The second add-on is the cumtube which is a tube cast in the middle of the toy. It comes with a syringe you can fill with (cum-like) water-based lube and shoot it into your ass, simulating the feeling of the dragon’s dick cumming in you. Naturally, such a tube makes cleaning the toy more difficult. Also, in my testee panel the opinions on the cumtube’s effect are split. Some love it, some find it overrated. I would recommend ordering one of their Lil’Squirt toys to try out the effect for yourself before investing money into a bigger toy with a cumtube.

Detail of the Egg’s Suction Cup

Playing with the Dildos

Egg Plug

The Egg Plug is an unspectacular plug by Bad Dragon standards: The body has roughly the oval shape of an egg and the neck and base is modeled after a golden egg cup. No ridges, no bumps, no frills at all but a thing ornament line where the “egg” meets the cup and at the top rim of the base.

While this might sound dull and actually uncreative – especially keeping in mind that there are already other manufacturer who make high quality egg shaped plugs. However, this product is the answer to many reader questions: It is the combination of a gentle ass-opening toy with the colorfulness of Bad Dragon. The smooth and round shape are perfect to pre-stretch the hole to take larger and/ or more textured toys. Especially in combination with the suction cup (which my egg has), it is ideal for riding, training the sphincter to open up. So it is a good toy for working up to a fist. Unlike its main competitor with which this toy shares a name, the Bad Dragon Egg Plug is an action toy. The large base and relatively large neck diameter compared to the maximum stretch make it difficult to wear over extended periods of time.

My Egg Plug is in the Signature color which a little custom twist: The cyan glows in the dark, making it almost a desk decoration item.

Detail of Tucker’s Glans

Tucker the Equinine

Tucker is the combination of the best of two world: A horse dick for depth and a knot for width.

Almost like the small brother of Chance Unflared Tucker starts out with a roughly dome-shaped glans which has a rim with small bumps. The glans flows quiet steeply into the shaft. The shaft is lightly textured with veins and increases slowly in diameter until at the end, there is a dog-inspired thick knot.

Especially in XL (and depending on your anatomy also in L), this design makes Tucker one of the most interesting toys in terms of “stretch” sensation: When the knot pops in, the “dull” glans also penetrates the second sphincter, causing stimulation both deep inside the body and on the anus simultaneously. Besides that, Tucker is also a good “training” toy for Chance. Being shorter and thus easier to control (to which the thick base and knot also adds), just riding the shaft until the knot, helps getting used to how to handle a horse’s glans and dick.

I chose 2nd Kind with a blue base as the color of my Tucker because I like the glow in the dark effect of it.

Sleipnir

Detail of Sleipnir’s Textured Glans with a Thick Rim to Massage the Prostate when riding it

Another horse dick but completely different than Tucker! The dildo starts out with a large and dull glans. Unlike the Chance’s and Tucker’s glans it is textured with ridges which is a good preparation for the thick ridge which runs around it and which provides a steep drop to the shaft. The shaft gradually increases in diameter. The first half of the shaft is textured by three gentle scales on both sides while from the “frenulum” down a line of in size increasing bumps runs. The lower half of the shaft features a mixture of deep ridges with shallow grooves between them.

Sleipnir is heavily curved “upwards” (if it was attached to a horse) so I highly recommend getting the suction cup. Otherwise it will even more easily flip over. The curvature is a useful element because it helps the toy to go really deep in doggy while the line or small ridges stimulate the prostate. Though you do not need to go that deep. Just riding the head is enough to start with since the thick ridge around the rim is great for a prostate massage.

Colorwise I followed Bad Dragon’s inspiration and went for Sleipnir’s Signature.

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.

Ever since Oxballs announced in early 2018 that there would be a new, larger version of the popular Pig-Hole tunnel plug, I was inundated with messages when it would come out and once it did, when I would review it. Due to the massive size of this toy, it was a bit difficult to find testees for it. But now I have found enough to finally give you what is probably one of the most anticipated reviews of this year.

Red Pig-Hole FF vs black Pig-Hole XXL

Construction

The Pig-Hole FF follows the same design and shape as the original Pig-Holes. The opening at the top is a bit slanted with a tip for easier insertion. From the opening the body extends to a wide barrel shape and later tapers to a small neck until flowing into a base. The opening measures 48x62mm and the barrel a whopping 93x108mm while the neck “only” measures 55x72mm. This means the Pig-Hole FF is about 20% larger in volume though at 155mm only 5mm taller than is Pig-Hole XXL. The hole in the bottom measures 57x75mm and thus is only about 10% larger than the XXL, but through a more ergonomically re-design of the base, it has roughly the same footprint making it still fit perfectly between the ass cheeks.

The Pig-Hole FF’s Barrel Size compared to the Size of the Pig-Hole XXL

Inside the barrel, there are the same ridges as on the original Pig-Hole though they are about 15% deeper for added stability. Oxballs also increased the wall strength from 6.5mm to 8mm to keep the toy inflated even with a little unwilling holes. This increased rigidness also means that you can’t turn the Pig-Hole FF inside out anymore.

The Pig-Hole FF come in Red and Black and not as during the design process discussed on Twitter also in Oxball’s newest color Steel.

Detail of the same Base Footprint of the Pig-Hole FF and XXL

Playing with the Pig-Hole FF

Two and a half year ago, I started this paragraph talking about that the greatest challenge of the Pig-Hole XXL is the insertion. And with the Pig-Hole FF it is even worse, for two reasons:

  1. The easiest way to get the Pig-Hole in is to fold the plug. But the footprint increased from 48x38mm to 51x47mm. It takes a very loose hole to take a “blunt” surface of that size.
  2. The added rigidness makes it harder to and kept fold. Being prepped for insertion with loads of lube makes that a really difficult task.

Detail of the Ridges inside the Pig-Hole FF’s Barrel for Added Stability

Along with the unfolded size means that the Pig-Hole FF is as toy for really experienced and greedy ass pigs whos hole have been properly loosened up during the scene. But the new design also helps such sloppy holes: Since the length only marginally increased compared to the massive diameter growth, the slopes of the taper are steeper, meaning it will also stay in place more easily. This is also necessary because despite the larger holes on both ends, the thicker material requires actually a bit more strength to fist through the Pig-Hole FF. Again, the good thing for a real stretch pig is that fist fucking with a Pig-Hole FF wrapped around a hand is blissfully intense!

Detail of the Pig-Holes‘ Opening Hole. You can see the Larger Opening and Thicker Wall of the Pig-Hole FF

Being a tunnel plug, you can also do the fun things with the Pig-Hole FF which an open hole offers: Pour in liquids, close it with a plug (my recommendation: Square Peg Acron; the ridge just about the taper almost works like a lock) or make the bottom incontinent for a bit and forcing him to wear a diaper.

Where to buy?

You can get the Pig-Hole FF at Mr S for $124.95 in the USA or Regulation for £109 in the EU.

Sqaure Peg Peg Away Putty

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.

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.

Construction

The Mega Milk’it borrows its basic shape from the popular Egg plug with it smooth, oval body, a smaller neck and a stretched base to fit comfortably between the ass cheeks. Though both sides of the body are very different: One side has a small bulge above before the taper towards the base, very similar to the Acorn. The other side has been “cut off” and replaced with ridges around the rim and two thicker, thus sturdier ones sticking out of the hollow carved into the body. The base on the side of the ridge is flat, on the side of the ridges it is curved upward like on the Egg plug.

The Square Peg Mega Milk’it

The overall height of the plug is 150mm of which the body takes up 110mm. The body is 64mm wide and measuring the ridges on the rim 54mm deep. Because the ridges fold easily and the body has relatively little mass due to the deep hollow it folds easily, making it easy to insert despite the texture. The upward pointing tip raises 40mm above the base.

The Ridges inside the Hollow on one side of the Body

Like all Square Peg toys the Mega Milk’it is made out of platinum silicone which makes the toy body safe, hypo allergenic and easy to clean. Though you should not use it with silicone lube because the silicone oil in it will damage the toy.

Playing with the Mega Milk’it

As written already, the Mega Milk’it is quite easy to insert. I recommend using lots of lube, maybe even injecting some lube into the ass because this is not a toy for long-term wearing but for moving inside the hole targeting the prostate. Alternatively – for extra effect – hold the head of a massager against the base. The soft material will transmit the vibration onto the prostate and sphincter making it buzz and the bottom squirm and scream.

Detail of the Bulge on one side of the Body

Both sides have very different effects which greatly depend on the bottom’s anatomy. The bulge is meant for moving the toy in and out, massaging the prostate in a smooth, flowing way. Some testees – like me – would have wished for a little bit more prominent bulge but this can easily be fixed using Square Peg’s Peg Away Putty. The ridges both work when fucking with the toy but also for twisting inside the hole and are a little bit better for vibrations because through the smaller contact area they are felt more intense. In order to fully enjoy the ridges, the ass has to be fairly relaxed; otherwise the just fold creating a still textured surface instead of sticking out ridges. When using this side of the toy, the base’s tip also massages the prostate on the perineum. BUT: The side only worked for about 60% of my testee panel.  To explain why, let’s dive a bit into anatomy: A healthy prostate is an about walnut sized organ sitting just behind the sphincter and above the perineum. Depending on the individual anatomy, it can be half a walnut bulging the rectum’s mucosa or just be a little, almost unnoticeable rising. If the latter is the case, the ridges inside the hollow do not reach is, just the flappy ones around the rim can stimulate it, making it hard to target.

Detail of the Base

So despite this being a good and fun toy, I would not consider it a great toy. The hollow is too deep to make it enjoyable for everyone. The ridges are just a bit too flappy for an on point stimulation. Part of the criticism could be addressed with offering the toy also in Firm Black. With this added firmness and with just a little bit thicker (thus sturdier) and especially in the middle longer ridges, it could bring fun to every prostate.

Where to buy?

In the USA you can get the Mega Milk’it at Mr S for $69.95 and in the EU from Regulation for £69.99.

If the Mega Milk’it is too large for you or you do not like the textured side, Square Pegs offers a variety of other prostate massagers like the Charlie Horse Milk it which is basically a smaller size of the Mega Milk’it or the Kidney plug – in small Charlie Horse and large – which “just” massages your prostate with a bump but otherwise is smooth.

Vendor: Mr Hankey

Construction

The basis of all Mr Hankey toys is platinum silicone which refers to the catalyst to cure silicone. Unlike other metals used like tin which is often used for cheap silicone, platinum is hypoallergenic and doesn’t cause adverse effect inside the body. Other welcome effects of using a noble material like platinum is a high resistance towards acid and heat. This properties in combination of the silicone’s super-smooth surface makes these toys very easy to clean: Either put them in hot water with an acid cleaner or even auto-clave them. Being sanitized so easily, these toys are ideal when playing with multiple partners in a safe way because they can be quickly sterilized between scenes. As always with silicone toys, never use them with silicone lube because the silicone oils inside the lube can damage the toy.

The Mr Hankey Butt Bolt, Solatok & Prince Charming

There are two firmness degrees to choose from: Medium and 75% firm. As the name already states, the medium is not solid but has a considerable give yet makes the texture very noticeable. The 75% firm is soft and squishy which is a good texture for riding heavily textured toys hard without injury risk. You can order a custom firmness but the ones offered are actually ideal: Go any smoother, and the dildo could collapse, go harder an when playing roughly, there is a chance of hurting yourself.

Detail of the Vac-U-Lock Hole

The off-the-rack colors offered by Mr Hankey depend on the toy, but are rather dull and standard. I highly recommend investing the extra $29.95 for a custom color like I did on mine. For the Solatok I chose a dark blue highlights over a light blue base color, making it look a bit like Sam the Eagle. My Prince Charming is black base with green highlights giving it an alien, almost Zerg like appeal. Finally my Butt Bolt is a black and red marble, which cause some irritations with me: After an intense solo play scene, I cleaned my toys still being high on endorphins. When I washed the Butt Bolt I was briefly shocked if I severely injured my butt with all the dark blood covering the toy – until I realized it was just the toy’s color. All Mr Hankey dildos can be equipped with a Vac-U-Lock hole for $24.95 which makes sense for dildo-shaped anal toys, especially when you have a fuck machine.

The Prince Charming

All three toys have very distinct shapes and textures. The Butt Bolt’s body loosely resembles a cola can with a four-ridge thread around the body. The lower quarter of the body is smooth and tapers into a short neck which flows into a thick hexagonal base. Solatok has an equally dull tip with a noticeable “glans” rim which tapers into an only slightly thinner shaft. The front of the shaft is textured with four deep, scale-like ridges. The upper two thirds of the sides and back shaft is lightly textured by subtle vain-like ridges until it widens at the lower third to a thick knot.

The most extravagant toy of the three is without a doubt the Prince Charming. The basic shape of the tip is like a human’s glans but the surface is covered with small bumps and the glans rim with larger ones. Below the rim there is a significant drop in diameter. The shaft then widens again to about double the rim’s diameter. The shaft’s upper two thirds is textured with thick and deep humps and knots which are softened in the lower third by a cover.

The Butt Bolt

Playing with the Butt Bolt, Solatok & Prince Charming

All three toys even – even the small sizes – are not for the novice who can just barely take the minimum diameter of the glans rim. They are designed for well-stretched, loose sphincter which just needs a delightfully mean texture to tire out the hole at the end of a scene and scratch the unsoothable itch.

Each toy is interesting in its own way. The dull tip of the Butt Bolt makes it a challenge to insert. Once inside, the ridges of the threat massage/ scratch the delicate nerve endings inside the sphincter. My Butt Bolt is a LG/XL made out of 75% Firm silicone so the ridges easily flap but still a hard punch-fucking will make even experienced fistees squirm quickly. I cannot even imagine how a much meaner a firmer one will be. Since it is rather compact in size and the max-neck-diameter ratio is relatively high, the plug can stay inside the ass for extended periods of time, like a break inside the sling. For walking around, the base is too big and has too many edges. During this break, the sphincter will tighten again, making the pulling out even more agonizing.

The Solatok

The Solatok (ab)users “suffer” from the same challenge as the Butt Bolt: The dull tip. Once inside the ass, it is an interesting toy to play with. Since the upper part of the shaft is basically ¾ untextured and one quarter heavily textured, the sensation while riding or fucking Solatok can be precisely focused. For a more broader stimulation, twist the toy inside the sphincter and use the scales’ rim. Going a little bit deeper, Solatok’s massive knot will be a challenge for almost every anus. The knot increases in diameter quickly and steeply. While it tapers towards the base again, there is almost no space above the base, leaving little chance to relax when fucking with the dildo all the way.

The „Cover“ over Prince Charming’s Texture on the Lower Third of the Shaft

Finally, Prince Charming is almost two toys in one. First, there is the glans covered with bumps. While they make it hard to take and make an extraordinarily large amount of lube necessary, the glans with the big diameter drop below it is almost like a small, heavily textured toy. It is the ideal toy to tease inside the sphincter, especially when twisting it once inside. The shaft’s texture is a (w)hole different category. The wide, cone-shaped taper adds the quickly increasing diameter to the challenge of the heavily, knot-like humps and bumps. Again, either sliding over them or twisting the shaft inside the hole will give the heavies stimulation. But especially when attaching it to a fucking machine with the bottom bound so he cannot escape forward, is a unique, if not done with great care also dangerous struggling stretch sensation. Use with care!

Square Peg Ripple & Vortex Slink

Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: Graphite and Bronze

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

Detail of the Vortex Helix-Style Ridge running around the Body

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.

Vendor: Mister B

Construction

The Crackstuffers Rough Rider is a typical shape dildo. It starts out with a nicely tapered tip which takes up about 20% of the total length.

The Crackstuffers Rough Rider

The shaft is textured with rings of six bumps; the number of bumps per ring goes down as the size decreases. Each bump is a half-dome measuring 20mm in diameter and 7mm height on the large model reviewed here. There are a total of 7 rings with each other ring is offset by 30° so entire sphincter is stimulated while riding it. An unwanted texture is the joint which runs around the entire toy which is typical for anal toys made out of vinyl.

The Rough Rider comes in three sizes.

Size Diameter Shaft Diameter

Length
S 3.2cm 4.8cm 25cm
M 5.5cm 6.3cm 26cm
L 7.2cm 8.6cm 28cm

Detail of the Bumps

Playing with it

From the name Rough Rider sounds vicious but it is actually a good toy for people to start out into the world of textured anal toys. The tapered tip allows the dildo to penetrate the sphincter easily before the bumps stimulate the sensitive sphincter. Since the toy is made out of vinyl which is soft, the bumps also give in. Compared to ridges or grooves bumps are the easiest to take texture, especially when they have such a gentle rising like the ones on the Rough Rider.  The sensation’s intensity can be controlled via the speed and force the dildo gets thrust into the hole. So the Rough Rider also offers some challenge for the anally experienced.  Despite the tip’s being optimized for easy entry, the hole should be pre-stretched to the diameter including the bumps to avoid injuries when fucking harder.

Detail of the Tapered Tip

While the play with the Rough Rider is great, the handling is difficult. Especially with the small and somewhat the medium size, the length to diameter ration is too far off to allow the dildo to stand up on its own which makes it hard to ride. A  suction cup or even a wider base would have been nice, especially since the small version in a length realm where the entire toy could be swallowed whole. The lack of a base is also problematic when topping with the toy. With the perfectly circular shaft and except the bumps no texture, it is actually hard to hold on to the toy with lubey hands. Again, a base would have been nice. There is a Truncheon version of the Rough Rider, which adds a grip and a crossguard-style stop at the end of the insertable part. But it features fewer bumps which are all in line so there stimulation is less intense.
