Doxy 3R

The Doxy 3R Wireless Massage Wand

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

The design of the 3R follows other massagers with a long, tapering shaft and a small head. Though with an overall length of 265mm and a maximum diameter of 45mm it is considerably smaller than other wands. Another nifty design feature is the bulge at the bottom for a more secure and comfortable grip. The wand is controlled through three rubber buttons for power, more or less intensity.

The case it made out of an aluminum die cast giving the massager a solid feeling. Yet at 370g it is not too heavy. Except for a silver sleeve at the top and far bottom the aluminum is colored in dark blue with luscious sparkles. The color does not look camp, it looks fancy in a good way and produces great effects under (playroom) LED lights. If you prefer a sleeker look, the 3R also comes in an all matt black version.

Detail of the 3R’s buttons

A 17mm shaft connects the body with the head. On top of a silver aluminum sleeve sits a silicone covered metal half-dome. This is the part which vibrates! The half-dome can be easily screwed off and replaced with accessories like a cock sleeve, prostate massager or g-spot vibrators. Because these accessories are tightly connected to the body, they won’t fall off like on standard sized massagers.

The Dome Unscrewed to Attache Accessories

To charge the 3R you have to use a provided USB-coaxial connector lead. On a 10W USB power unit it took about 45min to fully charge the massager. Sadly you cannot use the 3R while charging. So when after about an hour of full power (and about 85min on the lowest setting) usage, you have to wait 45min until the scene can continue. So esp. for edging scenes in public playrooms, I always carry a powerbank with me.

When you get the 3R, it’s packed in a black cardboard box with a blue glossy paper sleeve. While the exterior is sleek, the inside is as fancy as the “blue flame” color of the body: The massager and the charging cable is housed in a brushed aluminum cylinder. Screw-on caps give access to the massager compartment and at the bottom to a compartment for the charging cable. Since (almost) everybody has a USB power unit now, it doesn’t come with one to reduce electronic waste.

Playing with the Doxy 3R

The most often question I get asked about the 3R is “How powerful is it?” According to the package the Doxy 3R manages 9,000 RPM which is the same number as his cable bound twin Doxy No 3 and his big brother the Doxy Die Cast. Sadly, I do not have a No 3 in my collection so I could only compare it to the Die Cast. Gathering a small panel of testees and doing some simple quantitative tests, I have to admit: Yes, the Die Cast is a little bit more powerful and oscillates a little bit wider than the 3R.

But, in a blind test the testees could not tell the difference. In the long run, the testees I sent both wands to compare each other, the 3R made them cum quicker. This is due to the stimulation being more focused. Instead of distribution the vibration power over a big, chunky head, only the top tip of the 3R vibrates.

One Side of the Nexus Masturbator Attachement

If you play with the attachments manufactured by Nexus for Doxy, the power transmission should be better since the accessory is screwed directly onto the body and thus it cannot come off during the session. If have only played with the cock sleeve, because it is probably the most often used accessory by men. It is made out of a very soft sparkling dark blue silicone which stretches easily over the dick – if it stretches. The internal diameter without texture is 38.1mm which is the minimum dick diameter to really feel the texture and the vibration. So you need an at least medium sized, better large dick, to enjoy this attachment. The attachment has two different textures: One side, there are little pyramids and bumps, on the other six lines of ridges. As fun as the different textures are – when you can feel them -, the masturbator is not really worth its money: The connecting shaft between the socket and the sleeve is almost comically thin and wobbly. So most of the kinetic energy is lost in this small shaft. I could compensate this short-coming a bit with using Oxballs cocking as reinforcements but still: In the end traditional slip-over sleeves on the Die Cast provide stronger stimulation than the 3R with the designated cock sleeve.

The Nexus Masturbator attached to the 3R: The Degree of Kinking should give you an Impression just how soft the Connection between Wand and Sleeve is

But this does not make the 3R the inferior toy. It is the unanimous opinion of my testees and me that compared to his big brother, the 3R is the better massager. Being smaller and considerably lighter, it is easier to hold, especially in long scenes. Being wireless, it is an easy to grab toy for spontaneous scenes in the bedroom, a nimble travel companion for camping and business trips and of course for out of playroom sessions. While dedicated BDSM clubs like Quälgeist in Berlin or the Chicago Hellfire Club’s club house have sockets close to the play areas, most “kinky” clubs like LAB in Berlin or Underground in Munich do not. So you have to rely on battery powered toys. So far, the 3R is the most powerful and longest lasting massager I have come across.

Another advantage of the small form factor (which to be honest, does also apply to the cable-fettered No 3) is allowing for new, fun stimulation on the taint, single balls, just the glans, dildos and butt plugs with a small base or – for a non-sexual purpose – more focused tense muscle relaxation and vibration-enhanced acupressure (or use the bottom for it without vibration). Since the head can be screwed off and cleaned easily, the “therapeutic” purpose in combination with lube or ointments is easier than with the big Die Cast. The head of the 3R is covered in silicone so best only used water or oil-based lubes. Silicone lube with destroy the surface over time.

The Doxy Logo Minted into the Shaft

A word of warning though from a top friend of mine: He stuffed his 3R into his sub’s rubber catsuit, close and locked the zipper and put mitts onto the sub so he could not turn the vibrator off. The 3R is not water-proof! So the sweat killed the device for good!

Conclusion: Nimble, portable and powerful massager with disappointing accessories.

Pulse Solo Lux

The Hot Octopuss Pulse Solo Lux with all the Accessories, including the particular Draw String Bag…

Vendor: Hot Octorpuss

Construction

In lack of better words the overall shape of the Pulse Solo Lux is like a hand axe – and for a good reason. It is the THE gensis of ALL handtools because it lies good in the hand. And so does this masturbator. It has a nicely rounded outer shell with a diameter of 67mm and the barrel shaped body tapered towards a pointy tip over the length of 106mm.

The front is made out of a sturdy polymere while the side and the back is clad in stiff yet soft to the touch silicone. The cover flows into two wings you wrap around the penis. Below the wings are three grooves and a 2.54mm diameter vibrating plate. On the left side of the body is the power button which is also used to shuffle through the programs as well as the power boost button. On the right side there are buttons to turn the power up and down. As an avid reader might know from my silicone anal toy reviews: Yes of course it attracts dust like nothing else and is something you just have to live with.

Detail of the Charing Port with the Magnetic Lead Connector for 100% Waterproofness

The entire toy is completely sealed to make it waterproof. This means, there are no interchangeable batteries. You charge the internal one through a magnetically attached lead you plug into an USB charger. The contacts on the Pulse Solo Lux should be cleaned well. When I charged it mid-scene a layer of cum actually was thick enough to prevent the charging. Also, lead must be perfectly aligned in order to charge. Luckily there is a little LED at the back which indicates if the toy is charging and when the process is done. The magnet is tiny so do not expect MagSafe level of connectivity or self-alignment. Even a little pull on the lead can break the connection, leaving your toy uncharged when you need it. It takes about 3h to charge the batteries completely. Depending on the mode and the intensity you get between 45 and 115 minutes of play out of one charge.

For storage especially during travel the Pulse Solo Lux comes with a satin drawstring back with cute little satin laces to close. At the risk of being called out for fragile masculinity but for a toy that calls himself “Guybrator” and wants to address stigma issues of erectile dysfunction, sex in the senior demographics, etc. I would have wished for a little bit more masculine packaging. But maybe this is just me.

A nifty add-on is the remote control. It comes in a silicone wrist band with a pin buckle. The silicon wraps so tightly around the unit that it is shielded from water and lube just like the masturbator itself. And, you have guessed it: Silicone = dust attraction.

Playing with the Pulse Solo Lux

For me and my testees the Pulse Solo Lux was a game changer how we looked and experienced self-induced orgasms. I had a lot of strong, literally mind blowing orgasms in my life. The first one with this toy is definitely top 5 and yet very hard to describe. Along with my testees I try my best to put into words what self-pleasuring with the Pulse Solo Lux means: The build-up when the tension in the groin rises, you balls get pulled closer to the body was longer and more intense than almost any solo orgasm in the past. When I reached the climax it was stronger, longer and more intense. But it did not stop there. The good, tingling feeling was prolonged through the vibration even after the orgasm ended. This order and intensity of sensations keeps on coming and coming every time you use the Pulse Solo Lux. In the time my testees and I have used it, the effect never wore off. So despite being skeptical about the rave reviews I have read online this little device delivered what was promised: Intense, longer lasting orgasms.

To fully unleash the potential of this toy takes some experimentation. The out of the box experience with pressing the continuously vibrating plate against your frenulum is horny and fun. But the real intense ride begins when you find your sweet spot which might not necessarily be directly onto the frenulum. As an uncut guy with a pierced dick, squeezing my foreskin between the PA and the vibrating plate is the best place for me: It stimulates the many and sensitive nerve endings of my foreskin while the piercing channels the vibration deep inside my urethra and glans. Another testee enjoyed pressing the vibrator onto the top of his glans while the wings massage his frenulum.

The Charing Lead with the Indication LED

Speaking of the wings and pressure: Playing with the intenseness of the grip is also important part of playing with this Guybrator. Depending of the form of the day more or less pressure and thus transmission of the vibration to various points of the dick can prolong and intensify the orgasm. The Pulse Solo is a bit of an instrument you need to learn to play.

The vibration comes in six patterns:

  1. Continuously
  2. 5 sec of vibration and 5 sec of break
  3. 2 sec of vibration and 2 sec of break
  4. 1 sec of vibration and 1 sec of break
  5. 3 short impulses and 2 sec of vibrations with 1 sec break between them
  6. 1 sec of vibration, 1 sec break, 1 sec of vibration, 5 sec break

The first mode is merciless. Regardless if you are hard or not, the Pulse Solo WILL make you come quickly and hard. This even applies to people with erectile dysfunction or who have a hard time climaxing. Everybody in my testee panel, even the ones with medical problems were brought to an orgasm – quickly and lustful. The other programs’ effects are again highly individual. They are useful for pushing the orgasm back, enjoying the strong build-up. But some patterns for some guys were so “irritating” that they did not come at all which might be a feat when they are not in control of the device. Again, experimentation is king.

The same applies if you want to use it with lube. I absolutely hated it because my dick flopped around between the wings and the moving up and down motion of the shaft was not really my cup of tea. Many testees went crazy with horny ecstasy. Especially when playing with lube, I recommend using the remote control. The buttons on the Pulse Solo Lux need a bit of pressing power to respond. The resulting shifts and breaks of the stimulation can be annoying. The remote control buttons are easy to press and naturally allow another person to control your Guybrator.

Detail of the Transition from Hard Shell Front to Silicone Covered Back

The buttons on the device are so hard to press because of the waterproofness. This is a great feature because you can enjoy tension building up between your legs while relaxing inside the bathtub. But relevant to probably more people is how easy it makes cleaning the device. Submerge it in warm dish soap water, let the dried cum soak (a testee’s experience… don’t ask!), use a soft brush and you are ready to go again!

Since the best experience, finding the right point of no return and playing with it is highly individual, takes experience and even a slight shift to where the vibration is applied can drastically alter the sensation and result, it is not really a good toy for edging a (casual) partner. A testee bought one for him and his master and they are learning how to best apply it to keep him on the edge, begging for release. But it takes time! Naturally, especially in the program continuously the toy is perfect for quickly draining a sub and possibly milking him dry. I personally experienced the agony of a denied/ ruined orgasm by the Pulse Solo Lux when just when I was about to cross over the edge for an orgasm the battery died on me. If a top knows how a his sub reacts before reaching his release, this kind of play can be easily achieved by pulling the toy off his dick. Though I explicitly do not support such mean behavior of poor, innocent subs 😉

Slubb Masturbator

The Slubb along with the Power Tool sold in the Package

Vendor: Slubb

Design

The Slubb Masturbator is an attachment for oscillation power tools like the Fein MultiMaster. It is attached to the tool using a powder-coated piece of steel plate. On the open end a rhombus with recesses on the corners and a circle of twelve squares is punched out. This enables the Slubb to be attached to a wide variety of oscillation power tools. My testees and I have tried it on devices from Bosch, Fein and Einhell (more about that below) and it worked well on all of them. On their website, Slubb explicitly excluded the Fein SuperCut from the compatibility list and we can confirm that!

The steel connector is attached to a sturdy, industry-strength polymer case designed to withstand the strong vibrations even as the material ages. I talked to a friend of mine in the manufacturing industry and he assured me that the chosen Ultramid A3K PA66 is one of the best choices for this application. He also offered to put the housing through an testing marathon but this would have started with destroying my Slubb so I am taking his word that the material is good enough for this particular purpose.

The Slubb attachet to a Oscillation Tool

Inside the case a 310mm long and 30mm wide piece of industrial SBR rubber is tightly riveted onto the steel plate. The rubber strap is threaded through a loop at the back of the case. At its bottom there are two mushroom-shaped pins. The strap length is adjusted by pushing the pins through the strap’s holes. There are 16 of those and the two pins are one hole apart so the maximum circumference of the rubber loop is 220mm which should be enough even for well-endowed members of the kink community. But I guess if you require it, the guys at Slubb can custom make a larger version for you.

While you can purchase the Slubb separately if you already own an oscillation power tool that you want to expose to the environmental challenge of the dungeon like lube, they also offer a package together with the Einhell TE-MG 12 Li. The is a middle of the road battery powered oscillation tool with a 3° oscillation angle and a theoretically oscillation frequency between 5,000 and 17*,000 oscillations per minute. While usually being a quality freak who lives by “more is better because you never know when you need a power reserve”, I can assure you, you do not need a more powerful tool with a greater oscillation angle. The guys as Slubb actually “limit” the power units output at about 8,000 oscillations per minute but driving a screw into the rotary control (sometimes the simplest solutions are the best). I have taken the screw out and tested the higher settings. Most subs found the setting the higher settings unpleasurable and painful. Also, more powerful with stronger battery means heavier. At 830g ready to go, the Slubb on the TE-MG 12 Li is already heavier than all the massage wands I have come across.

Detail of how the Rubber Strap is attached to the body

The power unit is battery powered so you can easily move around with it. The battery takes around an hour to completely charge and also lasts for about an hour, depending on the intensity setting. It is interchangeable, so if you buy a spare battery, one can charge while the other is in action.

Since it is a professional power tool, it emits noise up to 79db which is probably the loudest toy in any given playroom. To be frank, this is annoying – and all the more reason to take you sub’s sense away by plugging his ears and focusing his attention to the stimulation on his dick.

The Slubb pack comes in a sturdy plastic carrying case without any branding, either of Slubb or Einhell. This is actually a bit of a problem because I do not know how but I always manage to open the case upside down… A Slubb branding (with a sticker) on top would have been great (and as a professional marketer I see a missed branding opportunity). Inside the case is the Slubb, the TE-MG 12 Li, the battery, the charger and a hex key to mount the Slubb onto the machine.

Detail of the Connector

What is not in the pack are the usual attachments a oscillation power tool comes with like saw blades, grinding plates or scrapers, etc. In Germany the TE-MG 12 Li currently retails for about 60€. Considering the price of the Slubb itself, it is cheaper to buy the unit separately and the Slubb separately. This way, you do not only save money but have the right tools at hand if you ever need to replace a tile or saw a hole in the back of your kitchen cabinets to install piping.

Playing with the Slubb

The handling of the Slubb is easy. Once it is attached to the power unit, adjust the loop that is it one hole larger than the circumference of the dick, apply ample silicone lube on the rubber strap and the dick and start the engines. There is no specific place where to apply the Slubb. The sensation is felt most strongly on the glans/ frenulum but moving up and down the shaft has its own interesting sensation. The more you get up the shaft, the stronger the vibrations are felt.

I sent the Slubb to two friends who suffer from erectile dysfunction. Both were able to reach orgasms with the Slubb, unlike with massager sleeve which require a hard dick start with. One of the two talked with his doctor about the Slubb because he was surprised by the effect. It turns out that vibration can help people effect by erectile dysfunction but there is no guarantee and he was lucky.

This effect was also observed by a milking top: He continued the stimulation after his sub has cum and milked one consecutive orgasm out of him after another. The stimulation is strong enough to usually get men to come quickly so he used the Slubb for quick semen extraction which worked better than a Venus of a Doxy with an attachment. Speaking of wand massagers (attachments): A great feat of the Slubb is that sits tightly and securely on the machine! Regardless how vigorously you move the loop up and down the dick, the simulation will not lose intensity because the attachment is coming off.

Detail of the Rubber Strap that goes around the Dick

The edges of the rubber strap are not deburred which is a controversial topic among my testees. Compared to other industrial rubber (like the one used on most rubber restraints) the kind used on the Slubb is considerably softer. Even over extended (continuous) usage, there was no chaffing on the tested dicks. But some found the firm edges uncomfortable, other enjoyed coarser feeling because it made the stimulation more intense. If you find the edges too sharp, you can easily deburr them on your own using a knife.

The Slubb should only be used with silicone lube for two reasons. First, silicone lube lasts longer so you do not have to relube ever 3 to 5 minutes as I tested with water-based lube. Second, the silicone oil in the lube maintains the rubber.

Conclusion: Effective and merciless milking tool if used on the right power unit.

Cockhead Focusing Pods

The P.E.S. Electro Cockhead Focusing Pods with 4mm Banana Jack Adapter

Vendor: P.E.S. Electro

This is the last review of this year’s E-Stim Special and it is readers pick. A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across this electrode in the far back right corner my electrode drawer. Having bought this toy years ago in a Regulation sale, I thought I reviewed it ages ago. But it turns out, I didn’t.

P.E.S. used to be a player in the electrode game. But about 5 years ago they vanished almost entirely from the kink retail scene. So I put it in the hands of my followers on Twitter if they were interested in a “legacy” review and well… you can figure out the outcome yourself.

Detail of the Connection of the Glans Rim Ring and Glans Tube

Design

The Cockhead’s design is fairly simple: The basis is a ring made out of a stiff 5mm conductive silicone. This ring comes in diameter of 25mm, 32mm and 38mm. So it is not really made for the well-endowed members of the kink scene. Perpendicular to this ring runs an 110mm long and 3mm thick conductive silicone tube. On one side, It is connected to the base ring using a plastic pin. On the other side it runs through a hole in the base ring, allowing for adjustment according to the glans length. Between the connector and the hole, three 10mm gold-plated spheres can be moved freely. The end of the glans tube is wrapped in a barrel-shaped piece of plastic with a copper pin at the end. Onto this pin you clip an overall 150mm long lead that ends in a 4mm banana jack.

Detail of the Focusing Pods

Playing with the Cockhead Focusing Pods

The design closely resemblance the one of the (considerably younger) Mystim Plunging Pete. However, the Cockhead Focusing Pods is a very different toy. First of all, it is a monopole so you always need a second electrode connected to the same channel to create a sensation. Due to the physics of e-stim, the stimulation is almost only felt on the focusing pods; you can get a bit of feeling on the glans ring if you apply conductive lube on it. But since the pods have relatively little mass and contact area, in almost all electrode setups, the focusing pods will be the area where the sensation is felt. This enables easy and potentially devious experimentation. Either place all at the frenulum, use the draft of the glans tube to pull it lightly into the piss slit or set the entire glans on electric fire. Especially when you have two little sheets of rubber at your hand to place below the pods to isolate individual ones in different scenarios, the Cockhead Focusing Pods offers a wide variety of play.

Detail of the Lead Connection

The thick tubes are also an advantage compared to the Plunging Pete. If the size fits the bottom, the Cockhead stays in plays even in high intensity scenes with an active bottom. Though I have to put an emphasis on “if the size fits”. While other head stimulators offer adjustability to meet every cock size, the Cockhead electrodes of P.E.S. are hit and miss: Either the dick fits, the electrode falls off easily or pinches uncomfortably. This is a particular problem because being only sold in 0.25’’ diameter steps, there are a lot of dicks and glans which are just in between and do not work with this electrode.

Another disadvantage of the design is that it is hard to clean since there are a lot of entry points for water which can be trapped inside. So my piece of advice is not to wash the electrode in warm soap water like others, even when you have used conductive lube. Instead wipe excess lube off and use spray-on sanitizer to clean lube residue off and sterilize the toy.

Conclusion: Mono-polar cockhead electrode for heavy play – if it fits well on the glans

eVac

The Vast eVac with the two Possible Electrode Rods

Vendor: Vast (formerly Demask Dortmund)

Construction

At a first glance, the eVac looks like a standard vacuum cylinder for cock pumping. The tube has an internal length of 245mm and a diameter of 50mm. The base is very wide with a diameter of 105mm and 10mm thick with rounded edges. The large base helps to reduce pressure on the pubic bone and makes creating a vacuum seal easier. Another attribute that sets this toy apart from other vacuum cylinders is the vacuum valve sitting on the side instead on top. The valve is a standard valve so you can use the eVac with most of your existing pumps and hoses like from LA Pump or Thickwall Cylinders.

On top of the cylinder is a short stainless steel tube with an M12 outer thread. It is tightly screwed and airtight foamed against the acrylic top. Through this tube you thread a 10mm steel rod from inside the cylinder. While every rod has a 4mm banana jack on top, the bottom comes in two varieties: The first one features a half-dome with a diameter of 48mm at the bottom and has an overall length of 225mm. The other one is 275mm long, has a rounded tip for urethra insertion and can also be ordered in an 8mm version if your urethra cannot handle 10mm sounds. This rod comes with a half-dome that has a 10mm hole in the middle that leads into a short tube. On the side of the tube there is a little screw with a 3mm hex to fix it on any height. To keep the rod in place inside the cylinder it is fixed with a cap nut that has a rubber seal inside for an airtight closure of the cylinder.

Detail of the Sounding and Half-Dome Ends of the Two Electrodes

Like all products leaving the workshops of Vast, the eVac is top notch quality: The cylinder is made out of thick and sturdy acrylic. The individual parts are glued with painstaking attention to detail so there is no messy glue-line visible. The acryl has been flamed thoroughly so the tube it is completely clear while the top and the base is solid black. All metal parts are stainless steel (resp. the cap nut has a brass interior) with flawless finish, all weld seams have been smoothed,

Playing with the eVac

The first thing my testees noticed was the relatively small vacuum cylinder of the eVac. This is actually a feature because through the smaller volume, the vacuum take effect more quickly and even small pump movements will produce noticeable results. In combination with the wide base for even distribution of the cylinder’s rim down-force, it is a pretty comfortable vacuum cylinder compared to others.

Detail of the Vacuum Valve and the Cap Nut to Fix the Electrode

The pièce de résistance of course is the rod-shaped electrode. The “gentler” one of the two is the simple half-dome one. You can either use it for pleasure play by positioning it contacting a large area of the glans already. This was the e-stim stimulation will basically stay the same, adding to the heightened sensitivity and vacuum sensation of the dick while you keep pumping. More devious of course is placing the electrode just a bit away from the dick. As you keep pumping and the dick keeps growing, the penis tip will make contact at some point, getting a shock and go soft a bit – until you pump a bit more, it gets harder again and the cycle starts over.

The eVac equipped with the Sounding Electrode

A bit more intense is the sounding electrode. You can approach this toy from two angles: First, just play the same game of short touching as with the half-domed one. But since the sound’s tip has a smaller surface area, the shock of touch will be more intense and pointed. Second, you can of course insert the tip into the urethra. This way there is an initial e-stim connection right away. As you start pumping, the sound will penetrate the dick further, adding a deeper stretch sensation while the e-stim sensation will fade a bit due to the larger contact area.

Inserting the half-domed electrode is a bit of hassle since the rod if considerably shorter than the cylinder. My recommendation: Put the half-dome onto a silicone dildo’s glans. The silicone’s stickiness will keep the electrode in play for easy navigation. Since the sounding rod is way longer, you do not have the problem with that electrode.

Detail of the Banana Jack and the Adjustable Half-Dome of the Sounding Electrode

Naturally, the eVac’s rod is a monopole. This means, you will need to connect an anal or scrotal electrode to the same channel as the rod. I have seen a prototype of a sheet electrode to be put below wide base. If you are interested, I am pretty sure Vast can manufacture something on demand.

Since the complete rod is one big pole, a word of warning when handling this toy while playing on your own. Especially when the tip of the toy has not touched your dick yet, touching the rod barehanded will let the currency flow through your arm and potentially through your heart! Because of that, for selfplay, I recommend wearing rubber gloves to prevent accidents from happening.

Conclusion: Unique electrode for elaborate and devious e-stim cock play.

Oxballs Ballstretcher

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

Vendor: Oxballs (USA) & Regulation (EU)

This review is a reader request: It has been a long time since I have reviewed my last Oxballs ballstretcher and some of the toys I reviewed yesteryear have been out of stock for a long time. In the time since my last reviews, I also learned a bit through reader comments. Ballstretchers – as balls – are such an individual thing so it is hard to make a general assumption which model is comfortable, easy to put on or can be used for long-term wearing. But still, I have been getting a steady stream of DMs on Twitter when I will be reviewing the new ballstretchers I wrap around my nuts in my tweets. So keeping in mind what I have learned about reviewing ballstretchers, here are my thoughts on the trio I bought over the last couple of months.

How to Store Silicone, Rubber and TPR Toys properly

General information

As different as the three designs are, they have some things in common. The all have their names written on the body. While this takes a bit away from the clean look, I actually find it a nifty feature when playing with a new dom and having to communicate in bondage which ballstretcher works best on your balls. For cleaning after play, simply soak them in hot dish soap water, rinse them off, sanitize, let them dry and store them away. All ballstretcher should be stores separately like in a shape sorter to keep them from touching. Otherwise the different plasticizers can damage the toys.

Putting ballstretchers on can be a bit annoying because in order to create a noticeable stretch effect, they have to sit tight. To keep the balls from slipping into the body during this struggle, I recommend putting a cockring on first. I you do not want to wear a cockring the entire time, use an Oxballs Ultraballs. They are stretchy enough to be pulled over the junk again once the ballstretcher fits.

Bullballs

The Bullballs is an iconic toy by Oxballs. It is actually the first ballstretcher the company ever made back in 2008 or 2009 (there are conflicting pieces of information out there when Oxballs moved from only making anal toys to adding cock and ball toys). When I discovered my love for separate ballstretchers (before the, I preferred slings), the old model was already discontinued. So when they reintroduced it in late 2018, I immediately went out and bought one.

It is a toy for people with low-hangers, coming in two versions: The Bullballs-1 with a height of 50mm and internal diameter of 25mm and the Bullballs-2 with 55mm height and 35mm internal diameter which I have bought. At first the stretch was a bit too much but I could not fit my meaty balls through the 25mm internal diameter. So I recommend to try out which one could work for you before purchasing one!

The design is quite genius: While the inside is a round tube, the top and the bottom feature dodecagonal facets for added stability. The middle section is a bit narrower and round. This section will compress when the stretcher is a bit too tight first but is strong enough to stretch your balls over time for a comfortable fit. Also, the ring is a good gripping point for CBT though since the notch is not too deep, it can be problematic to get a good grip with lubey fingers. Being made out of platinum silicone, the Bullballs are stretchy and have a smooth surface so skin and most of the time hair does not get caught making it a comfortable toy to wear. While Oxballs says, it is safe with all kinds of lube, I recommend only water- and oil-based lubes because the silicone oil in silicone or hybrid lubes can damage the material over time.

Finally, a word on the look of my Bullballs. The surface is far from perfect with little dents, nicks and even surface tears. I am not used to this kind of imperfection from Oxballs! But when I purchased mine from Gear Berlin in January, all 10 toys on display were this way so I assume it was a problem with the raw material. Knowing the material properties of platinum silicone, despite the far from perfect look, the “weakspots” will still stretch without tearing and they will not catch skin.

The Bullballs-1 come in black, blue, metallic, red, yellow and cost $25 while the Bullballs-2 is only available in black, blue and red, each for $29.

Detail of the Squeeze’s Bulge for Added Stability

Squeeze

I call the Squeeze my “Training stretcher”. Because when a new sub come to me and he does not have REALLY tight or meaty balls, this is my stretcher to go to. With a height of 45mm and internal diameter of 28mm, it does not really sound like a beginner’s toy. But it is all in the clever design: First, there it is made out of FLEX-TPR which is even softer and stretchier then platinum silicone. Second, there is the hour-glass shape with thick bulges on the top and the bottom and a thin neck in the middle which compresses even more then the middle section of the Bullballs. Finally, there is a small ridge on the inside, just below the opening for added stability. I had subs where the middle section was compressed almost completely. But despite the FLEX-TPR being so soft, is will slowly extend and train sub’s balls. The feeling of it, is like a top softly tugging the balls. And with the prominent notch in the middle, it makes the balls easy to grab if he desires to.

As the name says, FLEX-TPR is uberstretchy but the surface is a bit more sticky. So it can tug a bit on hair and skin. To ensure longevity of the toy, only use it with water-based lube because other will over time disintegrate the toy. Out of the three stretchers reviewed here, the Squeeze is the only one not made in the USA but in China from Oxballs’ sub-brand Atomic Jock.

You can choose between black, clear, metallic and red for the Squeeze. It costs $18 at Oxballs and £14.99 at Regulation.

The Blunt No-Frills Desing of the Balls-T

Balls-T

Just like the Bullballs, the Balls ballstretcher come in two sizes: The Balls-T is 30mm high and an internal diameter of 30mm, while the Balls-XL has 40mm height and an internal diameter of 35mm. The Balls-T is a no frills, middle of the road flexible ballstretcher – and that’s why I went for it. The size fits most people comfortable, even over longer periods of time. If in need, it can also be worn as a tight cockring. Being made out of platinum silicone, it has all the advantages already described above. I either use it in situations where I cannot change the ballstretcher and the intense stretch of a Bullballs might be too much (longer bondage scenes or attending a Fuck Mare Market [aka “Hore Fair” if you prefer the common, yet way more softcore English translation] for example or to stack it onto others for an added stretch. Since there is not much to get wrong with this model, I recommend it to all people who do not have extremely small, tight, beefy or low-hanging balls as their first stretcher. If it is too loose, simply stack some simple rings onto it until you are ready for something larger like the Bullballs.

With being available in black, blue, red, neon yellow, neon orange and neon green the Balls-T is actually the most colorful of the selection. It retails for $22 at Oxballs and £17.99 at Regulation. The Balls-XL comes in black, blue and red and costs $28.50 at Oxballs.

Bad Dragon Wereables

Bad Dragon Wereable Magnus & Flint

Vendor: Bad Dragon

For many perverts transformation into an anthropomorphic being is a major kink. Part of coming close to their being of choice or calling is putting on gear which in a sexual content should include the dick. For that reason I have been asked a lot of times for an educated opinion on the Bad Dragon Wereables. So I got my hand on their Flint and Magnus to tell you all about it.

Construction

The construction of the two models I have tested extensively follows the design of most cock sheaths: The main body is a long sheath for covering the dick’s shaft onto which at the end a loop is molded to put around the balls for keeping the sheath in place(more on that later). The inside of the sheath is textured to massage the top’s dick while fucking, on Flint with thicker grooves while Magnus has finer ones. Unlike other cock sheaths the wall thickness is not even around the dick. Since the outside texture follows the design of some of the most iconic Bad Dragon dildos, it is sometimes thicker like on the deep ridges on Flint’s bottom or Magnus’ knot. The wereables are made out of soft silicone. So even Flint’s ridges or Magnus’ prominent veins will certainly add tantalizing sensations but will not be a difficult struggle. Due to the stretchiness, putting the sheath on is also easy, because it stretches well, even over girthier dicks. While the sheaths are made out of the same silicone as their other toys, the color choice is limited to solid colors.

Detail of the Veins on Magnus‘ Sheath

Depending in the model the wereables are one size only or come up to three sizes. I recommend getting a size with a slightly smaller internal diameter than the diameter of your dick’s shaft for a snug fit. If you choose one of the wereables with a closed tip, make sure not to buy a too short one! I had a chance to fuck with a medium David which was too short and it was an unpleasant and unpractical experience.

Playing with the Wereables

Most of my testees – both top and bottom – enjoyed playing with the wereables. The extravagant colors and sophisticated textures add an enticing visual to the play and new sensations to fucking. It takes a few rounds to figure out which texture works best in which position. Flint was more appreciated in doggy style because the ridges massage the prostate while Magnus won favors in sledgehammer fucking with the bottom on the back resp. in the sling because it really gave the knot a pop feeling. Some of my testees used the wereables without a bottom and enjoyed the sheath as small and handy travel masturbators. Especially the deeper grooves of Flint are great for that and the soft material lets you control the pressure easily.

To put the wereable on, lube up the dick, pull them over the shaft and put the scrotal loop around the balls. I recommend lubing up the sheath afterwards after it has been put in place. Otherwise adjusting the fit becomes difficult.

Detail of the Grooves inside Magnus‘ Sheath

As good as the soft silicone feels and allows the movement of the bottom’s sphincter to be felt by the top, it is also the drop of bitter with this toy. The loop around the balls is too soft and stretches too much. On a well lubed up shaft it moves a fair bit. On the one hand, this is good, because the groves inside the sheath massage the top’s dick. On the other hand especially when the bottom’s hole is just open enough to let the toy covered dick in, it stays inside, sliding along the dick, until the pull gets too much and pops out. With guys who don’t have low-hangers, Flint’s wide loop came off during heavy pounding. Also, Flint’s tip is so thin, it sometimes folds down when entering a hole. So I would recommend the wereables for loose holes and not to for something to start out the fucking with.

Of course, the wereables are not only made for dicks! They are a good way to spice up dildos which have become uninteresting. Naturally, for a securish fit, dildos with balls are better than just shafts. If the dildo has nothing to put the scrotal loop around, the sheath must be hold in place by hand otherwise it might disappear inside the bottom’s ass.

Detail of Flint’s Scrotum Loop with the Bad Dragon Logo Stamped on the Right Side

Being made out of platinum silicone, cleaning is easy: They can be autoclaved, put into hot water with dish soap or vinegar cleaner, rinsed off, dried and sanitized. But since they are silicone toys, it means they should not be used with silicone lube. Since they are so textured, I recommend a slicker lube like Elbow Grease H2O Thick Gel which stays in place.

Where to buy?

Like all Bad Dragon toys, they are exclusively sold and made to order at the Bad Dragon website. Depending on the size they cost between $60 and $80 with no surcharge for a different color.

BenSWild Made to Measure Cockring

Vendor: BenSWild

For some kinksters a simple cockring is their entry into non-vanilla sex. It is the first time they are actively thinking about using a tool to improve their sex live and some start to wonder “If a good cockring can do so much for me, what might other toys do?” From there on, it is a slippery slope down the rabbit hole for most.

Because of that looking at read questions, cockrings are the most often asked toy category, even before anal toys and restraints. Most readers can be helped with one of the many good off-the-rack cockrings but there is a surprising large number of people who need something custom due to being too big, too small, too weirdly shaped, etc. Luckily I never had that problem but to get an educated opinion for this group of people, I commissioned a made to measure cockring at BenSWild this Folsom Europe.

BenSWild manufactures their cockrings out of solid stainless steel giving them a decent weight. The finish is flawless with smooth rounded edges and spotless surfaces. You can either have the cockring in polished or with a satin finish. Another surface option are one or two gouges, either round or v-shaped ones like I have.

While you can get cockrings with different surface designs from many manufacturers, what sets the BenSWild design apart is the shape: Instead of being a perfect circle they are shaped like a isosceles triangle with round corners. The advantage of this shape is it sits snuggly with little slag. This means the blood retaining effect is stronger while being more comfortable. I got longer lasting, harder erections and a bit more powerful orgasms compared to my old round stainless steel ring and a way more intense experience than from TPR cockrings like Oxballs makes them. The BenSWild cockring is so comfortable that I sometimes fell asleep wearing mine. This can actually happen more often than you might expect because the tighter fit means that the dick needs to be real soft in order to put it on or take it off. I probably have to get a new one because with my new PA piercing it has become a real struggle to squeeze the dick below the steel rim.

More important than customizing the look are the options when it comes to the functional aspect of the ring. For just 5€ you can make the inside of the ring convex. This makes putting the ring on extremely more easily, especially when you get wider rings. Since the skin contact area is smaller, the cockring can move a bit easier so it settles easily in the most comfortable position. The other options is width of the ring which can be chosen from 10mm up to a whopping 30mm in one millimeter steps. The width is important for a comfortable feel and to act a bit as a barrier for the cavernous body to erect against. Finding the right one is very much personal taste. A general rule of thumb is the more low hangers and/ or meatier the balls are, the wider the ring can be. I have a 20mm ring and am very happy with it. Other, cheaper cockrings are so thin that they cut the blood flow off in an uncomfortable way. This will not happen even with the 10mm wide version.

Finally, you need to figure out the correct size. You can either do it on your own using a tape measure to get the circumference of your junk’s base to calculate the diameter. Or if are lucky enough to meet the guys from BenSWild at an event, you can ask nicely to get the incredibly sexy cub who is the owner to measure you himself.

The cockrings which all come in a cool black carrying pouch are rather pricey, starting at 39€ and going up to 85€ for the largest, fully equipped model. But in my opinion (and in the many opinions of my friends who got BenSWild cockrings) it is worth the investment because they cannot only be used as a stylish napkin ring when the in-laws are coming for dinner but are so solid that they will last you a lifetime and bring you countless hours of fun.

Oxballs Shockballs

The Oxballs Shockball

Vendor: Ballistic Metal

Construction

Like all ball crushers the Shockballs has two plates measuring 189x129mm. The lower one is made out of 6mm thick black acrylic, the top one out of 5.5mm thick clear acrylic. In the upper half, there is a hole in each plate. The lower one of the entire junk, the upper one for just the dick. Both holes are nicely rounded and flawlessly deburred so there will be no unintended pain or injuries. To fit most dick and ball sizes, the Shockballs comes in three hole sizes: 31.7mm & 44.5mm, 38mm & 51mm and 44.5mm & 57.5mm which I have bought.

The plates are connected by a clear acrylic hinge at the top. At the bottom there are two M5 screws for pressing the top plate down on the balls using wings nuts. On the screws there are also nuts as an adjustable compression limiter.

Detail of the Electrodes‘ Upsight with the 4mm Sockets

Below the holes there are two aluminums clamps screwed onto the clear acrylic using three sleeve nuts. The nuts’ round-head are the contact points of the electrodes. To connect the electrode with the power box, there are 4mm holes to fit banana plugs drilled into the bottom of the clamps.

Playing with the Shockballs

The hinge is a blessing and a cruse: Usually with ball crushers your fiddle with two or even three pieces, always risking to pinch some skin. This won’t happen with the Shockballs. But: If the sub already has a full-grown boner it is almost impossible to get the dick through the designated hole so the crusher can’t be closed again. The hinge’s height also limits maximum squeeze to 18mm (and a minimum of 42mm). While that is enough for a strong compression feeling, it won’t cater to the total nut pain pigs who want their balls compressed paper thin.

Detail of the Electrodes‘ Contact Areas

So much for the bad news. The good news is: The toy as an awful lot of fun to play with. While yes, putting it on with a hard dick, especially larger ones, not having to deal with shifting, getting wedged plates made me use the Shockballs way more often than my other ball crushers – even just for crushing. On a more personal note, I also like the industrial look of the brushed aluminum clamps compared to the poles being on the base plate on other e-stim ball crushers which then feature clear top plates. Tough some testees did not like the somewhat obstructed the view on the compressed sack.

The e-stim sensation is generally starts out mostly smooth. But since there are only three contact points it quickly can be turned stingy when the intensity is increased. Since the contact area and mass on both poles is almost identical, the sensation is felt on both poles when connected to one channel of the power box. The most interesting/ deviant stimulation is putting a mass-rich counter pole (everything up from the E-Stim Systems Torpedo Large like the Stuffer or [X]L Black Collection) inside the sub so the stimulation is only felt at the balls. Then choose a program which alternates between the two channels (like HiFreq on the Erostok ET232) so the agony constantly jumps from one side to the other.

Detail of the Screws to Tighten the Crusher

It is general a good idea to put a flexible cockring around junk’s base to keep the balls from retracting back into the body. If a sub has smaller/ tighter balls, I also recommend to stretch his nuts with one of the many flexible cock rings/ ball stretchers from Oxballs. This way they won’t be squeeze through the dick or junk hole (whichever has more slack). If you are really mean, you use the Zapp or Volt to electrify also the ball’s neck.

Conclusion: Nicely looking, easy to handle e-stim ball stretcher – if the dick is soft.

Vyper XL

The E-Stim Systems Vyper XL

Vendor: E-Stim System

Construction

The basis of the Vyper is a rectangular piece of 8mm thick, black, polished plastic which measures 220x145mm. On top of this base plate two pairs of golden sheet electrodes are mounted, each sheet measuring 80x28mm. Using four 55mm long M6 screws a clear 110x110mm and 5mm thick plastic plate can be fixed on top of the base plate and tightened using butterfly nuts. There are two of these plates so the entire base plate can be covered. Depending on the bottom’s dick size, one or two places can be used to torment his dick. At the bottom of the clear plates, the same electrode layout as on the base plate can be found.

There are four terminal pairs on the top and two pairs on the bottom below the upper pair of a compression plate. There is a connection between the upper and lower terminals so even if you don’t attach leads to the lower ones, stimulation will come from the lower electrodes.

Detail of a Terminal a Screw for Tightening the Upper Plate onto the Dick

On top of the board there is a little eyelet through which either rope can be threaded or a carbineer attached. Since the total weight of the toy is 650g, it is a good idea to have something which keeps the Vyper from moving around and thus putting the dick in an unwanted location.

For more compact play luggage E-Stim Systems also offers a short version called “Vyper 2” which is half the size of the Vyper XL reviewed here.

Playing with the Vyper XL

There are two ways of wiring the Vyper: The quick and easy and the more elaborate way. The quick and easy way is always connecting a yellow and a black terminal to one channel of your electro powerbox. This way the simulation direction is left and right and you rule out any chance of short-circuiting your power box. For the more elaborate way, you connect the two alike-colored terminals above each other for a top-bottom-stimulation. In this case you need to place small rubber patches where the top terminals connect to the lower electrodes. Otherwise you will short-circuit your power box! While most premium e-stim boxes can withstand this stress, it is not good for the hardware. Also, you won’t feel almost any stimulation regardless of the power level. Furthermore, make sure that the dick touches the panel you connect the box to. This is especially important with less well-endowed subs.

Detail of how the Upper Terminal connect to the Lower Sheet Electrodes

After the technicalities have been taken care of, now on to the fun stuff. The sensation produced by the Vyper actually depends on the dick size. Since the electrodes have very small mass, the more of the dick covers them, the smoother is the sensation. This leads to interesting mind games: Either endure the dick being pressed more severly for a smother sensation or take less pressure but more stingy e-stim. When compressing the dick, taking it slow and not to extremes is wise. Ironically the cavernous bodies are more sensitive to compression than the balls so do not tighten the top plates to the max. It is actually useful to add a nut or two as a safety barrier. The sensation can be made a bit smoother using conductive lube.

Through the Vyper’s unique layout, it takes a bit of time and experimenting which programs wired which way works best for your sub. For me, programs I never found enjoyable suddenly made sense using the Vyper XL. Playing a little bit with pressure during play – like tightening the lower or loosening the upper plate to “squeeze” an orgasm out of the sub – is also a lot of fun. One sub even managed to cum inside the Vyper just from e-stim.  If you have a “larger” sub, taking single plates off opens a hole new range of play possibilities. Either just fry the glans or polish and sound it while the shaft gets all the stimulation.

Details of a Sheet Electrode Pair

For even more varied CBT scenes, the Vyper can be used without the top plates. Simply use rope or elastic bands to keep the dick pressured against the base plate’s poles while you torment the shaft and glans with (e-stim) pinwheels, pegs, a violet wand or impact play. You can even use wax though it is a pain in the ass to clean off!

Speaking of cleaning, after play spray the exposed areas with a sanitizer and wipe it off afterwards. If you used large amounts of lube, your sub came all over the place or through other means it has gotten completely messy/ dirty, soak it in warm water with dish soap and use a soft sponge. However, take extra care when trying. With so many little gaps and holes, water can linger and cause corrosion!

Conclusion: Unique, little bit bulky design for interesting new, rather stingy e-stim sensations.
