Form: Depth Toys
When I tweeted about the arrival of new SquarePeg toys in September, the most messages I have gotten were about the Long Long Neck! So naturally I start with the depth toys in the review order 😉
The Long Long Neck – like his name twin – starts out with a almost hand with all fingers-pushed together-like head. This tip is 130mm long and being oval measure 58x62mm in the largest dimensions. The head than smoothly tapers to the oval body which over a whopping 480mm increases from 42x48mm to a rectangular 76x76mm! This means the overall insertable length is 610mm! At the bottom is a thin base which at 96x96mm is not much bigger than the maximum dimension.
The Sigmund is what I would call “a functional” dildo. It starts out with a stylized anatomic correct glans which measures 52x58mm. On top of the glans the steepish drop is 7mm while at the bottom the glans smoothly flows into the body. The body below the glans measures 48x58mm. It is textured with very few yet high veins! Over the course of 230mm the body becomes round with a diameter of 61mm so the insertable length is 300mm. Sigmund has a wide base for a secure stand.
SquarePeg only makes toys out of US made platinum silicone. This means the toys’ surface is super smooth which makes it hard for bacteria to linger and easy to clean. All toys are 100% body-safe and hypo-allergenic. These advantages come with a small disadvantage: You must not use silicone toys with silicone lube because in the long term it will destroy the toy. SquarePeg claims on their website that their toys are safe to use with quality silicone lube but I would err at the side of caution and only use it with water- or oil-based lubes.
Colorwise both toys are available in Bronze and Graphite, SquarePeg’s shades for their famous SuperSoft silicone. The Sigmund is also available in Black which stands for “firm” in the SquarePeg world.
Playing with the Long Long Neck & Sigmund
At a first glance, the Long Long Neck looks a bit intimidating and hard to handle. But frankly, I was surprised how well the Long Long Neck handles in the playroom. This is due to the head which sits on a dildo-thick body. So unlike the Slink the Long Long Neck will not flop around if gripped properly and the tip does not bend when being pushed against a something resisting (this will become important later!).
Speaking o the Slink: The Long Long Neck is for DEEP Play. It dwarfs the Slink XL which I have and is almost neck on neck with the Slink XXL! But the Long Long Neck is the better toy when you want to play deep. The Slink has the problem that the often tip bends when it reaches a tight spot and thus blocks the way. The almost hand-link head doesn’t do this but can “force” its way and even out kinks ahead of it. Of course this requires more careful play! When you cannot go further or feel pain, stop! Since both the head and the body are oval and thus have an orientation, pulling back a bit and pushing further with slow, controlled twists can sometimes even out the path. Bur your colon is a very delicate area so play with this toy extra carefully! This also accounts for when pulling it out. While the Slink only gets smaller the further you pull it out, with the Long Long Neck there is always the thicker head coming. So especially when you have irritated the colon to much, it’s tensing up and you are in deep, remember that the head needs to pass potentially now tighter intestinal loop.
There are two challenges with Long Long Neck’s length. First, the human colon is about a 1.5m long. So in theory it should not reach the small intestine. But every human is different and if you bring bacteria from the colon to the small intestine! So be extra careful when going really deep and if you feel a pain like you had when you trained your second sphincter to open up, stop immediately! Second, despite having written that is it easier to handle than a Slink, it is still a very long toy! When playing deep alone, I usually squat down because in this position your colon is most relaxed and you can best control the speed and somewhat the way the toy goes in. At 610mm this is not possible. So I pop in the head in doggy position and squat further and further as it slides in deeper. This makes the toys harder to control but is the only feasible way I have found.
While the Long Long Neck is a toy for really experience depth player, the Sigmund is for people who want to get started going deeper. The biggest challenge with depth play is that the sphincter which marks the transition between the rectum and colon is very sensitive. Unlike the anus it is not desensitized through external physical stimulation. Everything pressing more or less forcefully against it causes it to tense up and is very painful. Because of this a toy to train this area is needed. Most dildos have a too dull glans and/ or are not bendy enough to reach the Sigmoid (that is where Sigmund’s name comes from). What you want it a point glans on a flexible shaft, both of this has Sigmund.
The glans’ tip is small and nimble so it can anchor itself in the second sphincter. Once this is done, carefully proceed and stretch it softly. Like the Long Long Neck both its’ glans and shaft have a direction. So if you cannot go deeper, pulling back and twisting a bit can help to press on. Twisting will also stimulate your anus. It has less veins than the Leo or less texture than the Mel but the few, very high veins are enough for a horny stimulation. Even more so if you get it in firm. But this option I would only recommend for already depth-experienced players who already have pushed past their second sphincter. In firm, the body does not bend much and instead of gently opening up the Sigmund it will rape it open. This is too much for this delicate body area!
As I have written the Sigmoid needs to be desensitized before you can enjoy depth play. Sadly this means, the training will not go without some discomfort during the process. This is why I recommend depth training alone. Alone you are in command how much depth and force you apply and which discomfort still feels good without being a sign of an imminent injury! There is sadly no guideline how much pain is still acceptable. Especially when starting out, be careful and take it slowly. Get to know this new region of your body through the toy and do not rush it. When for the first time Sigmund’s glans pops through the second sphincter and it closes behind it, it will almost feel like your first fist and you will want it out. This is a normal reaction. But once you have reached this mile stone, in the next session you can carefully go a bit deeper.
Before I have gotten Sigmund, I always recommended the Thick Worm for starting depth training. While an insertable length of 350mm means you can go deeper it is also a bit harder to control and with the smaller head the desensitizing especially for bigger toys less effective. And since you do not want to go too deep when starting out, I would not actually recommend the Sigmund over the Thick Worm when starting out. Even though the Thick Worm remains my favorite depth toy.
Where to buy?
Both toys can be directly purchased at SquarePeg’s website. This gives you the advantage of their Shop@Home program where you can look at their toys in your home and then decide if you want to keep them. The Sigmund costs $149, the Long Long Neck $299.
