Last week’s toys came from Berlin in the Eastern part of Germany, this week these two handsome brutes are coming from Düsseldorf which is in the far West of Germany.
Like all toys in this Anal Toy Special the dildos by Blackfang Labs are made out of pure platinum silicone. This means they are not only a 100% body safe unlike cheaper materials like PVC or rubber. Their surface is also super smooth which keeps bacteria from lingering and makes insertion and cleaning easy. Simply wash with hot dish soap water, rinse, dry, spray a sanitizer on it and you are ready to go again. This makes platinum silicone toys perfect for orgies. They are quick and easy to clean between partners. In order to preserve these properties they must not be used with silicone lube because the silicone oil will disintegrate the surface and make it sticky! Water or oil-based lubes are fine. So you can infuse your water-based lube with essential oils if desired.
When silicone toys started to become a major thing some 10 years ago the softer end of the spectrum was the most popular one. Blackfang Labs sticks to this trend with their soft being Shore 00-30 (a bit softer than Topped Toys for example), medium being Shore 00-40 and firm Shore 00-50 which is still relatively soft.
What set Blackfang Labs toys apart from other silicone toys is the coloring. DarkRat, the artist behind the toys has an extraordinary eye for beautiful fades. He combines bold colors in striking contrasts or layers soft tones in subtle fades creating some of the most amazing silicone sculptures out there. When I see his drops in Twitter , I am sometimes tempted to buy a toys just because the colors so vividly and seducing. Another specialty are multi-color marbles. They are more complicated than they might appear. Colored silicone easily blends creating mushy messes. In Kai’s marbles you can really see the different colors dancing around each other like in an abstract expressionist painting. It’s like K.O. Götz and Jackson Pollock started to collaborate on anal toys.
Just like the coloring the product quality is spotless! The surface is even without popped bubbles, rough areas or overly frayed edges at the bottom. Since after last week’s review I have gotten a couple messages about these frayed edges: It lies in the nature of the material to create rough edges at the bottom. They can be evened out like for example Bad Dragon does. However since you do not see them, they do not impair the functionality of the toy and if they are within limits, I am giving them a pass. If they annoy you, you can deburr silicone toys with a sharp knife.
For most of their toys, Blackfang Labs offers the option of a suction cup. Their suction cup is deep and taking up the entire base for a strong and secure suction. This is an option you should always order then possible. If riding a toy sitting on the floor for maximum sphincter and colon relaxation it keeps the toy from sliding away. If you prefer a more “natural” knotting position in doggy style, you can stick it to your shower wall without falling off or sliding down.
Blackfang Labs offers two toys or rather tools which I have not ever played with but which are sounding interesting: First a double-sided suction cup to mount suction-cupless toys to a flat surface. This is a brilliant idea for toys which do not have this nifty feature. It is likely I might actually recommend this feature over a vac-u-lock suction cup because having a silicone foot will feel more organic than a firm plastic one. Also, it looks like the double-sided suction cup can bend a bit so it might adjusts more easily to your body movement. However, the cup has a diameter of 57mm so you must at least have base diameter of I guess 62mm for it to securely attach to making it feasible only for larger toys. Also it would be interesting to see how the different firmness degrees effect the suction and stability performance. The other vac-u-lock replacing accessory is a grip with a suction cup attached to it. This cup has a little bit smaller diameter at 54mm so will go with more toys. But even at Shore 00-50 I am not sure how usable or rather wobbly the grip will be. Yet, at 30€ each for a two-tone toy they are not too expensive. Maybe in the future I will take a look at them in another review.
Playing with Hectore & Wairu
As the name might imply – at least for Germans – Hector is inspired by canine gentiles. A husky to be precise. He starts out with a pointy tip of a bulgy circle on top of a tapering stump. The shaft is textured with two lateral bulging cavernous bodies which are very lightly textured with veins. On the bottom runs a faint ventral groove and there is a little more bulgy groove on the top. The shaft slightly tapers towards the knot.
The knot is really extreme on Hector! While on other canine of vulpes inspired toys you have two or three spheres bulging out of the shaft, on Hector it is an almost perfect flattish bulge all around the body. Only at the top there is a small recess and there are two small ones next to the thick bulge below the ventral groove. While this does not sound a lot different, it changes the knotting dramatically. With spherical knots the individual spheres can be “pushed” to a side which fits the sphincter better. Also, the knot has an orientation; positioning it in line of the sphincter makes the entry more easily. With Hector is either goes in this way or is does not! This is little to coax the anus to open up. This led to many play partners underestimating Hector! In the profile the glans and body promise they will gradually open up the hole and the knot does not look more flattish than other knots. But it feels SO much more intense.
The neck below the knot is short but long enough for the anus to comfortably close around it. The little leverage in combination with the massive, dull knot means that it easily locks in place. The neck is textured with a cluster of thick grooves so there is an intense stimulation when twisting it. This is if your bottom can focus on this body part because the pressure of the thick knot pressing against the prostate if overwhelming.
The base is thick and sturdy so you don’t accidently swallow it when your hole already opened up to take the now.
In comparison to Hector Wairu would be best described as “Two households, both alike in dignity”. He starts out with a tiny tapering glans. The glans rim is textured with pointy bumps. The shaft itself is not even half of the entire insertable length and its intersection is almost like a rounded square! On the bottom corner instead of a ventral groove there is line of pointy bumps. The sides and back are textured with scale-like ridges which have an pointy apex at the top. Yes, the body gradually tapers but through the texture it rather irritates the sphincter and causes it to tense up instead of gradually preparing it for the knot.
Wairu hast two of those. The first if what I call the pre-knot. It is a lot like Hector’s knot, a bulge around the shaft with only a small recess at the bottom. Its flatness’ effect is intensified by shallow yet noticeable ridges on the side which makes the knotting more intense.
The knot itself is rather traditional with two big rounded spheres on the side, a medium one on top and a big recess at the bottom. So the anus can nicely squeeze the knot where it has to go. But the shaft-to-knot ratio is an absurd 1:1.7! Yes, bouncing on the pre-knot (1:1.4) helps a bit but still! The knot is texture with a few subtle veins for good measure but I doubt you will feel them in the intense knotting sensation.
The neck below has ridges like Hector yet fewer and shallower ones. Also, the neck is quite short. This in combination with the HUGE base create a lot of leverage, making it almost impossible to lock the knot inside the anus for extended periods of time.
