Vendor: Organotoy

Happy Pride Month! It’s the most wonderful time of the year for us non-straight perverts so I am going to kick-off the months with a review of my latest rainbow colored toy, the Organotoy Ripley. This is going to be a special toy, because the Ripley started out as a toy I designed for myself and some very greedy play partners. But the guys from Organotoy liked the design so much they asked if they could add it to their collection. I do pro bono toy design for all kinds of companies so why not?

The Organotoy Ripley

Construction

Literally Ripley’s core is a 320mm long column with 60mm diameter. The top 35mm have the shape of a slightly elongated half-dome. After a just 10mm short shaft the first bulge raises almost perpendicular out of the shaft. These bulge are 15mm wide, 10mm tall and are rounded. There are a total of 6 bulges around the shaft with 27mm between them. After the last bulge there is a 40mm long “neck” to rest until a round base with 100mm diameter gives the toy a sturdy stand and keeps it from accidently getting swallowed by a greedy hole. The base is 32mm tall and comes standard with a surprisingly strong suction cup! For an extra 10€ you can get a Vac-u-Lock hole instead. Such a hole is a nifty feature not only if you have a fuck machine but putting a thumb into it makes guiding the toy into a fistee’s ass easier.

As for every of their toy, Organotoy offers a firmness range from Shore 00-30 up to rubber-firm A30. Personally, I found Shore A5 the best compromise between challenging pop and still manageable insertion. But since I prefer my toys on the firmer end of the hardness scale, I am not a good reference.

Two Silicone Skin Ripleys with a „Normal“ cast GeometriX

The same wide range applies to the color scheme: Organotoy can do (almost) everything you can imagine. From unicolors over marbles with my beloved glow in the dark colors to extravagant patterns they can make every twisted fantasy come true. My two Ripleys are airbrushed because I wanted a the bulges to a distinctly different color from the shaft which silicone cannot do. You would always see a bleeding on the edges.

What sets an airbrushed toy apart from other silicone toys is the finish process. A freshly cast toy is sprayed with a layer of translucent silicone. Into this then still wet layer colored silicone is painted or sprays (thus the name “airbrush”). Finally, a protective coat of 5 to 8 layers clear silicone is sprayed onto the finished toy to protect the color. Once dried, the toy gets tempered and now has a beautiful and smooth silicone skin.

The Vac-U-Lock Hole in Ripley’s Base

The lead designer of Organotoy is a former Hollywood SFX makeup artist who can great incredibly detailed paintings (like the Biohazard sign on the training plug I developed for my BF; another design Organotoy adopted). So coloring my Rainbow Rammler and Flash Gordon Coil was a jiffy.

The silicone skin of an airburshed silicone toy is smooth and glossy compared to the relatively matt surface of a “just” cast toy. The skin is sturdy – as long as you do not attack it with acetone, cut it, use a steel sponge or use silicone lube. Just treat it like you would your skin and you are fine. Friends of mine have been using their airbrushed toys from Organo for well over half of a decade and they are as good as new. The clear silicone and the colors used for the airbrush as well as the process are – like the silicone – 100% body safe. And smell-free. It pains me to have to stress this, but in the past few months I have been getting more and more messages of people who have bought allegedly silicone toys which smelled funnily. A body-safe silicone toy out of the factory will never smell! Though silicone can of course take on smells over time.

Playing with Ripley

Detail of the Bulges around the Shaft

First a disclaimer: I have designed this toy so I will not talk about my experience with it. I might be too biased. My personal experience comes in when I critic my creation.

The toy is for bottoms who like it rough! And who are loose. Like, really loose! The steep, perpendicular bulges give the sphincter no chance to gradually open up. The anus either lets the toy in or it doesn’t. There is little in between. You can force the Ripley in but the popping will be intense! And you have to figure out the right degree of force. Otherwise serious injuries to the sphincter can occur!

The Ripley was designed to “rip” lose holes apart, give it maximum stimulation through the extreme texture. It is best when loose ass lips slobber around it. It’s definitively an end of scene toy. One to finish the hole for good. The combination of stretch and pressure (quickly over) stimulates the nerve ending dense, sensitive anus. For less vigorous action a skilled top can learn how to utilize the tip and the first bulge for targeted prostate stimulation. While this is less forceful than a hole destroying fucking, it still requires an open anus.

Detail of Ripley’s Tip

For both kinds of stimulation an about 15mm longer shaft above the first bulge would be great. Either for more easily reaching the prostate or for “anchoring” the toy inside the anus. If you fuck quickly and forcefully the toy can slip out of the hole. This is something I did not think of when drawing the design of this toy. I already told Organotoy to fix this before they add the toy to their webshop.

But the lead designer is female and the Ripley apparently is perfect for G-spot stimulation. Something that my FtM friends confirmed. A longer shaft would hurt women with a sensitive cervix so they decided to keep my initial toy design. If you pay a bit attention, keeping the toy inside the bottoms greedy ass can be done so I guess it is not too much of a problem to use the toy as it is.

Where to buy?

Like all Organotoy products the Ripley is sold exclusively at their website. Other the high degree of customization would not be possible. The price starts at 99,96€ but depending on your color, firmness and accessory wishes the sky is the limit.

The Topped Toy Hilt 115

Vendor: Topped Toys

Construction

The Hilt is made out of the best material possible for an anal toy: Platinum silicone. This kind of silicone is 100% body safe and hypo allergenic. Its super smooth surface makes it not only easy to clean and insert but keeps bacteria from settling.

The toy comes either in blue or their signature Forge Red, a marble of red and charcoal-steel which I like a lot! It brings a sexy, brooding atmosphere to the play. Being a marble and thus a bit more difficult to cast, the Forge Red toys costs 10CAD more but like all silicone toys it will last you a lifetime so it is a worthwhile investment! Regardless of the color, the silicone has a firmness of Shore 00-34 which is quite soft.

The Hilt comes in three sizes. For this review I tested the Hilt 115, the other sizes were supplied by friends who have the other sizes in their playroom.

Size Glans Diameter Shaft Diameter Above Knot Knot Diameter Neck Diameter Base Insertable Length Overall Lenght
95 63x55mm 73mm 56mm 75x80mm 52mm 85mm 225mm 265mm
115 68x59mm 76mm 57mm 91x98mm 62mm 103mm 240mm 280mm
125 68x59mm 69mm 69mm 99x106mm 65mm 112mm 260mm 300mm

The Hilt’s Glans with the Ridge in the Middle and the „Hook“ on the Back

Playing with the Hilt

The Hilt starts out with an oval glans. Unlike other toys which have a smooth and rounded tip, this one has a ridge in the middle. At the back it has a hook-like drop and around it runs a ridge that flows into the top of the shaft and forms a ventral groove there. The shaft itself quite voluminous with bulges on the side. The smooth, flowing lines make it an interesting and not too challenging toy to ride – once you have taken the popping glans. But this soft and stimulating ride does little to prepare you for what’s to come.

Compared to other toys, the top of the knot is very flat and wide. There is no steep slope gently seducing your hole to open up to the maximum diameter. Either it is loose enough of the knot will jam! To this adds the softness of the material. Unlike firmer material (Shore A5 and up) which can force the sphincter open, the soft Shore 00-34 silicone will rather flatten and this increase the diameter instead of popping through this sphincter. What makes the knotting even more extreme and challenging is that the knot sits perpendicular to the shaft. For a thorough pre-stretch I recommend to twist and turn the shaft to loosen up the hole as good as possible. That being said, I consider myself an experienced fistee and it took me a couple of weeks until I knotted my Hilt 115. It was a blissful experience but took some work and stretching. So this is definitively not a beginner’s toy but for the real ass pigs out there!

The Flat and Wide Knot of the Hilt

An old and tired fister’s bon mot about big plugs is “When it fits, it sits” and the Hilt is not different. After the maximum diameter it tapers conically and relatively steeply towards the neck. But the anuses of most of my testees were so “traumatized” in a good way that they did not want to let go of the toy. And while the conically shape above the neck opens the sphincter up well for the pull-out, the brutish-dull knot requires a VERY loose hole for knot-fucking – and a somewhat alert top. The base is not much wider than the knot yet being not so thick softer. So a greedy, depth-savvy fistee might swallow the base.

On the base is also self-play potential lost with not including a suction cup! The Hilt would be a perfect toy to mount onto the shower wall and fuck yourself with it. On a smooth surface, the base is wide and sticky enough for the Hilt to be ridden. But a bit wide, a bit thicker base with a suction cup or at least a Vac-u-Lock hole would have been A+. Especially considering Topped Toys is marketing the Hilt as a “Rideable Toy”.

Detail of the Ventral Groove and the Bulges on the Shaft

When a skilled top is controlling the toy, the many ridges make the Hilt a prostate stimulation beast! There is the hook at the top of the glans and the glans ridge, the ventral groove and of course the knot. To be honest, it takes some time to get to know the toy so thoroughly and to figure out where and how to twist the Hilt to apply pressure. But once a top has mastered how the toy behaves in his bottom’s rectum it is a nifty too for targeted stimulation.

The silicone’s softness in combination with the concave arching shaft allows the toy’s body to arch easily when it goes deep. This adds to the feeling of fullness in the rectum and increases the prostate stimulation a bit. Some lucky bottoms who’s second sphincter is located in a sweet spot and who are depth experienced will be able to allow the glans to enter the colon. The tapered glans is good for opening up this sensitive body area. But the many ridges and grooves on the upper half of the shaft makes the Hilt delicate for depth play. Because when twisting the toy, the bottom can be easily be pushed over the edge because the stimulation it too intense. Plentiful lubrication is advised!

The Conical Neck and the Round Base of the Hilt

As always with platinum silicone toys, pleases only use it with water- or oil-based lubes. The silicone oil inside silicone lube will disintegrate the toy, making the surface sticky and porous. Overtime, the toy will not be body safe anymore.

After each scene, the Hilt should be cleaned which is easy with silicone toys. Soak them in warm water with dish soap to get the lube off more easily. Once soaked, rub over the toy using your hands or a soft cloth, rinse the toys with warm water and let it dry. If you want to be extra-safe, spray a body safe sanitizer on the toy afterwards.

Where to buy?

Topped Toys sells the Hilt directly for between 135CAD and 225CAD, depending on the size and color.

Steed

Form: Fantasy
Material: Platinum Silicone
Colors: Basically whatever you want
Firmness: Soft to Medium
Lube: Water, Oil
Cleaning: Soaking in hot water with dish-soap than use sanitizer.
Safer Sex: Clean and sanitize it thoroughly
Storage: Store in a well-ventilated place not touching other toys to prevent damage.

Vendor: Sinnovator

From a reviewer’s point of view, the Steed arrived at a bad timing: I got this toy just after Christmas and at the beginning of the annual review break. So while I had much time to send it to different testees and get very varied opinions on this toy, I rarely got more messages asking me if I could already give an interim opinion. So it is just to start the new review season with this toy!

The Sinnovator Steed

Construction

Like all Sinnovator toys, the Steed is made out of platinum silicone which is 100% body safe, super-smooth and hypo allergenic. The casting is perfect! Small details are shaped perfectly, there are no frayed edges.

You can choose between two firmness degrees Medium Soft which is Shore A4 and Medium which is Shore A10. For most toy companies the “firm” range starts at A8 and the medium is around A5 so keep in mind that Sinnovator toys are on the firmer end of the softness scale. When it comes to colors, the options at Sinnovator are almost limitless. From classic black over Steed’s Signature which is a vibrant red – silver split to total custom ideas, everything is possible. I asked Sinnovator to surprise me with something extraordinary and got this psychedelic madness which I love!

The Steed connected to a Vac-u-Lock Grip

Add-on-wise you can get everything you could want from a fantasy dildo: A cum tube costs £25 and which as you might know do not really recommend because the feeling is not that impressive and the cleaning is a nightmare. The suction cup add £20 but sadly none of my friends and testees had a Sinnovator toy with this add-on so I cannot judge the usefulness of this feature. A no-brainer is the free Vac-u-Lock hole. Add it in any case, even if you do not have the matching accessories (which if you are an avid ass pig should get), because sticking a finger into the hole makes guiding the toy into your play partner’s ass SO much easier. What surprised me that the Vac-u-Lock hole was about an inch too short to fully take my grip. Friends also had the same experience with various fuck machines. It does not compromise the suction/ grip of the adapter much. It just looks weird.

Size Diameter Glans Rim Diameter Middle Ring Diameter at Base Insertable Length Overall Length
S 32mm 37mm 38mm 155mm 185mm
M 46mm 52mm 54mm 222mm 241mm
L 53mm 60mm 62mm 254mm 266mm

Detail of the Glans and Textured Glans Rim

Playing with the Steed

The Steed is a toy for texture junkies. It roughly has the shape of a realistic horse dick. But the shaft is texture with deep ridges and high veins, not seen on a living animal. But that is the joy of dildos: They can be better than the reality.

Especially the large version requires some depth experience to be fully enjoyed. At 254mm insertable length it is just long enough to pop through the second sphincter for most bodies though short enough to be handled easily. The for this sensitive body area relatively deep texture around the glans rim makes the Steed a devilish tool for teasing and stimulating. Just below the glans there is a short resting area with no texture so you can stretch and torment the second sphincter by popping the glans through it.

This section ends with three relatively shallow horizontal grooves. For most other guys this marks the end of the second sphincter stimulation (though I know one greedy petite puppy from Tirol who will probably like to differ).  But especially the thick vertical veins are a delight to when twisted inside the anus.

Detail of the Heavily Textured Area between the Glans and Middle Ring

In the middle of the shaft is a horizontal ridge, typical for anatomically correct horse dildos. But on the Steed is a perfectly horizontal, at size L almost 10mm wide area which especially in firm POPS! On the top of the shaft there is another, slightly shallower ridge. From first ring on, a deep ventral groove textures the shaft along with two thick veins left and right of it. The combination of this horizontal and vertical texture makes riding and twisting the Steed a delight – if you can focus on this area. Because when you have gone so deep, the tip will have penetrated the second sphincter, leading to an intense double stimulation of that area and the anus. So the Steed is not for the faint of heart or beginner. The intense stimulation can lead to the sphincter to tighten up. Start slowly and see where the moans of your bottom take you.

Detail of the Dull Middle Ring

Finally a word of caution for the experience player: I chose this toy based on the circumference values on the Sinnivator website. And even after reviewing anal toys some 5 years now, I am still struggling with circumference values as a representation of size. So when I got my large Steed, I was disappointed how small it was. Of course, with the Stallion Sinnovator offers a larger horse dildos but that model is just as smooth as the other three horse dildos in my collection. So hopefully at some point Sinnovator will offer the Steed in an XXL version with 65mm glans diameter and 311mm insertable length (scaled proportionally from the site L).

 Where to buy?

The Steed can be ordered directly from Sinnovator starting at £44.99 and depending on size and add-ons goes up to £189.99.

Anal Fist Training 101

tl;dr

Gentle fucking your anus with either the SquarePeg Egg or the Topped Toy Gape Keeper with increasing larger sizes over time will make your hole fistable. Once you more or less easily take a Gape Kepper 93 or XXL Egg you should be able to take a medium size fist.

Ever since I started reviewing non-stim anal toys some 5 years ago, one of the most frequently asked set of question I have gotten is: How do I train my hole to take a fist? Which toys are best for the task? (For finding the perfect anal toy in general look here) Since review-wise I am still in hibernation it is the perfect time to write a comprehensive guide what toys and steps to take to get from a virgin or just dicked ass to a fist-greedy hole.

The Topped Toys Gape Kepper & SquarePeg Egg, my recommended Plugs for Training

Physiology and Psychology of Getting Ready to take a Fist

First, let’s talk about the bodily aspects of fisting. The anus is a ring sphincter, a muscle. In order to make it smooth and willing open up, you need to carefully stretch it on a regular basis. For this I recommend a tandem of two plugs: One the goes in relatively easily to initially open up your hole and make it smooth. The best way to achieve this and accustom your hole to the stretch sensation of a fist, I recommend a gentle fucking with the plugs. Once the hole is opened up then other one should be used to stretch your sphincter. This again is a pushing/ fucking movement against the sphincter until it becomes uncomfortable. Keep the pressure at that point for a short while, then release and push again. Which level of discomfort is acceptable and needed for a good training is highly individual. Approach it carefully, explore what feels right and keep in mind what I write about pain below!

When the larger plug almost goes in initially as easily as the smaller one and you can fuck yourself with it, it is time to make the larger one your start plug and buy a bigger one for stretching. The size difference between the two plugs should be about 10mm to max. 15mm in diameter for two reasons:

  1. If the plug becomes too large, the overall shape gets too “dull” and it just bluntly presses against the sphincter which will not entice it to open up (more in the perfect shape below).
  2. You need a sense of achievement once in a while. Dully pushing a toy against your hole without any noticeable progress gets boring over time and demotivates. But when after two or three weeks of training you finally conquer a toy, you feel accomplishment. Adding to that the awesome feeling when the light pain of stretching turns into pure anal pleasure, there is strong positive conditioning going on. This is the psychological element of hole training!

One Disadvantage of Silicone: It attracts Dust like Nothing Else

The stretching can cause a little dragging pain but must not be intense or pinching or sharp! That is the reason why I recommend hole training on your own because you can best control the degree pf force and angle in which the toy should enter. Furthermore, especially in the beginning your hole will be tender quickly. So a potential play partner will be disappointed. Training does also not need to take long! 10 to 15 minutes every two or three days is enough to make progress. Actually, regular stretching is way better than one hour-long session once every blue moon. And with stretching I mean the gentle fucking movement describe above. There is little training effect in long-term wearing of plugs. It is actually counterproductive. If you wear a plug for extended periods of time, your sphincter will contract again and the mucosa inside the rectum will absorb the lube. Pulling the plug out then, especially when you are untrained can be very painful and cause injuries! The anus can take quite the beating when being relaxed! But if not, it is a very delicate body area.

That is why I like to compare fist training to starting Yoga. When you start out, you might be disappointed how clumsy and stiff you are. But when you keep going, push yourself a little bit and within reason on a regular basis at some point you will be able to touch your toes. And the same way, if you keep to the training regime you ultimately will be able to take a fist.

The SquarePeg Longneck & Mr Hankey Toys El Rey

It is hard to pin down an exact plug diameter when you will be able to take a fist. Small fists could have a very sturdy bone structure while large ones could collapse easily making them easy to take than a smaller one. Also, a human hand will never be as soft and smooth as the squishy silicone currently popular. So the softer the silicone, the larger the plug has to be. But a good rule of thumb is that somewhere around 75mm diameter you should be able a medium glove size hand.

It is important to keep in mind that like in training there is a psychological factor in getting fisting: Allowing another person push his or her fist through your sphincter takes a lot of trust and relaxation. It is not uncommon that the first fist is a strong mindfuck and needs to be taken out right away and the session is then over. Do not consider this a failure! Keep in mind that you can now take a fist and go back to this trail of though with confidence before your next scene. Do not stress out if it does not work out the second or third time right away or at all. Being able to take a fist a not a Boolean event but a wonderful journey you have just reached an important step but which is not nearly over! And there are wonderful things and experiences to explore along the way.

The Bad Dragon Vergil, a Fantasy Dildo good for Anus Stretchig

Choosing the right Toy

Plugs, Dildos & Fantasy Toys

A hand in initial fisting position (pressing all stretched out fingers together) has roughly a cone shape. The diameter gradually increases until the thumb knuckle and then tapers again until the wrist. This double cone-shape which causes a stretch both going in and going out is best recreated in plugs.

I often get asked “Can I also use dildos to train?” Of course you can but the training effect will not be as big. The stretch and training effect basically only occurs when the dildo enters the anus. A dildo is good for getting the anus used to being stretched to a certain diameter (and the friction of the fucking stimulating the many nerve endings inside the anus makes the training enjoyable) but helps little in the quest of taking a fist. There are some dildos which through the shape can help train like the SquarePeg Longneck or Mr Hankey El Rey. Dildos which taper towards the bottom and thus increase the stretch are not really useful because often before you get to a useful stretch you run into depth problems. This means that you need to penetrate the very sensible second sphincter where the colon enters the rectum. This is a challenge especially for deep fisting and definitely a story for another day.

Bad Dragon’s Egg

Many people get into anal stretching because they like the looks or the mind play (I am looking at your Furries! ;)) associated with fantasy toys like from Bad Dragon, Neotori or KnotMe which are often on the larger side of the size spectrum. One of the distinctive features are they elaborate shapes and textures. Sadly, the more texture and the complexer the shape, the harder they are to take. So they are not good training toys. Of course there are exceptions like the Bad Dragon Vergil or their Egg. It is the closest you get to a pure training plug if you are a purely Bad Dragon afficionado but the base shape makes it hard to grip and almost imossible for longterm wear (If you want to learn more about finding the perfect anal toy and how to store and care for it, take a look at my Anal Toys 101).

Top View of the Gape Keeper and Egg to Compare the Steepness

Choosing the right Plug

As already written the training plugs should have a smooth and flowing conical shape both before and behind the equator so they easily go in and out. They should be made out of platinum silicone because its surface is super smooth and easy to clean. Finally, they should have an ergonomic base as a good handle when fucking and naturally come in a large number of sizes. These criteria meet two toys: The SquarePeg Egg and the Topped Toys Gape Keeper. They both have a long-drawn egg shape which makes them perfect for training. Which one you should choose highly depends on your personal preference. At Shore 00-34 Topped Toys uses slightly softer silicone which follows the current trend towards soft toys. With SquarePeg you have the choice of two firmness grades: SuperSoft (in their signature Bronze orange or a middle grey called Graphite) or Firm (only in black). Personally, I prefer firm toys for training because the firm toys “force” the sphincter open a bit more easily (again, choose the force you are comfortable with and do not overdo it!) and the firmness is closer a human hand. The SquarePeg Egg is also steeper and thus goes in a bit more easily. The Topped Toys Gape Keeper is a little bit duller and barrel shaped so it comes a bit closer to simulating the challenge of the thumb knuckle. The SquarePeg base is a bit easier to grab but especially at sizes larger than XL a bit cumbersome. Both models come in a wide variety of sizes so you can find the perfect pairing of fucking+stretching plug. If you can, go to a store, touch and look at the toys to find which fit you best. Of course, my reviews of the SP Egg and TT Gape Keeper are also an excellent point to start 😉

Overview of the Three Different Colors and thus Firmness Degress of SquarePeg Toys

These toys are not inexpensive and I am aware that buying increasingly larger toys is an expensive route to take compared to cheap PVC toys but especially when you leave the realm of mass-commercial sizes (about 60mm diameter) there are not many well-shaped toys to continue your journey towards a fist (And do not get me started on heavy metals and plasticizers in PVC being absorbed by the mucosa in your rectum). Fisting is such a great experience so your hole should be worth it for you! Furthermore, these toy retain a somewhat good second hand value. Or you take my route and hand down some toys to eager bottoms starting the same journey I have been on and keep some if you want to train fistee in the making or need to open up a tense hole.

The SquarePeg Acron with Focus of its Bulge

Then approaching the 70mm mark, there is another toy I recommend for training: The SquarePeg Acorn. Its duller tip is a bit closer to the ergonomics of a hand in fisting position than the perfectly smooth taper of the Gape Keeper and Egg. The duller transition between the body and the neck is also closer to the transition between thumb knuckle and wrist. Around the rim runs a bulge designed to stimulate the prostate and anus which frankly is a challenge and makes taking the plug harder when you are not experience. But holy fuck! When you take it and are experienced enough to relax becomes that little bump a horny feature!

The Topped Toys Grip 106

I sometimes get the questions if the Topped Toys Grip or more recently the Deep Space are good for training. To be frank, I have not yet played with them but looking at their shape and taking into account my experience with other toys, I would say no for the training aspect. The Grip starts out at a size range where you are almost in fist territory and its slopes are too steep (there is actually a sweetspot between steep- and dullness which is too complicated to explain here). On the Grip 96 and even the Grip 106 it looks a bit better. They could maybe work for training, I actually need to try them myself. But also these two have the very prominent edge around the equator which makes the pop going in intense and the pushing out challenging. This makes the toy interesting and horny for experienced holes but nothing for novices. If you like the shape though, buy them as inspirational toys. Because, you should always buy toys for the hole you want not the hole you have 😉

The Topped Toys Deep Space 70

The Deep Space as its name says is made for training stretch in the depth of the rectum and colon. Furthermore the tip is again shaped for more experienced holes which easily open up. So like the Grip, save the purchase for when you are fist-savvy or get it as playroom decoration to look at and aspire to when training yourself in the meantime.

Pharmacy

Douching

Ok, this is only in this section because you can buy clean-out accessories in the pharmacy. When training yourself, I would recommend not to overdo the douching because it irritates your anus and rectum, making it harder to open up. A thorough clean-out like before a good, heavy fucking should is enough. Yes, the fucking motion of the plugs can lead to some waste falling down. But this small thread it outweighed by the fact that you do not tired your hole out already in the bathroom.

When you get into serious fisting you will need to improve your clean-out routine. But still, you and your partner should always keep in mind where you put your hands. Accidents happen and are neither reason for drama nor for bottom shaming! Be adult about it, clean up, douche again, take a break and continue.  In my opinion, people who put down and shame bottoms for messy incident have not business of sticking their hands and dicks in rectums!

Two of my personally prefered Lubes for Anal Play

Lube

Lube is paramount! Too little lube can cause fissures and other accidents. There are some borderline cases (and with experienced players preferences) where there is too much lube. But especially when starting out with serious ass play, if you ask yourself “Should I add lube?” the answer is always “Yes!” When playing with silicone toys, you must not used silicone or hybrid lube because the silicone oil inside it will over time destroy your toys. The surface with become porous and sticky. I recommend water-based lube. There are countless brands available and actually two fister can talk for hours why which lube is the best. You just need to try. For the training the lube consumption will be relatively moderate. Since all powder lubes used for fisting go bad quickly, you should buy large and thus economic bottles of lube. My personal recommendations are Elbow Grease H2O Thick Gel or ID Glide because it stays in place on the toy but ever ass is different so give it a try.

Relaxants and Aftercare Ointments

There are many relaxation sprays and gels or even numbing ones out there. Stay away from them! The numbing effect will dull the pain you feel and thus an important indicator if you can still push on a bit or have to stop immediately! Injuries coming from being too forceful can keep you from ever enjoying any from of anal sex forever! So it is not worth it.

Heavy training can lead to mini fissures or stress-induced pain inside the sphincter. This is completely normal. For aftercare I recommend using baby diaper rash cream with panthenol and zinc oxide to help the small wounds to close and calendula and either chamomile or sage for a soothing effect. Even when you are a masochist, I recommend to wait with proceeding with the training until you have no pain in the anus anymore. Otherwise problems can escalate.

And finally a necessary word on semi legal and illegal substances. I will neither recommend nor demonize them because people will be using them anyway. Like relaxation or numbing gels they can greatly impair you ability to notice something is wrong. So especially when training, using anything more than poppers and THC which is relatively safe is very dangerous! If you decide to use substances educate yourself about the short and longterm effects and especially safe use. Never use them alone and try them with an experienced person you trust. Discuss your limits before hand and do not move/ let yourself be pushed further than you are comfortable with when you are sober.

I hope this article has helped you a bit to embark on the fun way to becoming a fistee! If you have any comments, Tweet or DM me or write an e-mail. Each feedback is appreciated.

Vendor: Flurb

Theirs is none of my videos up on xTube that gets me more messages than JustTeckIt stuffing my butt with a 10mm wire strength stainless steel chain. Well, that was until the big porn purge of December 2020. A lot of messages asked “I want to get into chain stuffing. How do I start?” Good chain being a difficult to procure (sharp edges anyone?), I wondered “How could the interest in chain be combined with the advantages of silicone toys?” And along came the crazy guys at Flurb this fall…

The Flurb Chain with 15 Links

Construction

Well… what to write about the design this toy? It is a just chain after all… The basic design of connecting more than three links has been around for over 2,200 years now. But you can never go wrong with a classic! But knowing how silicone toys are made, I wondered how this chain is manufactured: The individual links are cast and then 50% are cut in half. These half-shells are then used to connect two links. While you can still see the seam connecting the links, it has been thoroughly smoothed so you don’t feel it.

The Three Colors of the Flurb Chain: Gold, Silver & Bronze

Being made by Flurb, it is made out of nice, squishy platinum silicone which is 100% body safe, super-smooth and hyp7o allergenic. I could not find a Shore value for it, but from my experience I would say it is around A5. This may sound firm, especially considering the current trend towards (absurdly, almost unusable) soft silicone, since the links are by design airy and thin they give in and stretch well. Color-wise you can choose between a silver/ steel tone, a dark bronze and a rich gold. All colors are not solid but have a bit of a marble and sparkle, authentically conveying the impression of aged metal.

A single link of the Flurb Chain measures 70mm in length, 50mm in width and has a wire strength of 15mm.  The chain is sold in five possible lengths.

Link Number Overall Length
7 320mm
11 490mm
15 660mm
19 810mm
23 970mm

The way the Links of the Flurb Chain are Connected

Playing with the Chain

First things first: “Can I stuff it up my butt?” Yes! Yes, you can! And it is great! As I have written, the links are a bit squishy. On the ends where the links are connected, they naturally are a bit firmer (as ToyTorture always says: The thicker the silicone, the firmer it will feel) than in the middle where they can be compressed easily. This leads to a nice popping sensation, especially when you pull out the chain. Yet the silicone is stiff enough to want to expand to its original shape and size once inserted. So you can get a nice stuffed and full feeling. But depending on your anatomy and experience level, you should definitely be more ambitious when choosing the length of your chain for that feeling! My chain has 15 links and I wished I would have gone for the 19 link, if not 23 link version. Because if the chain is completely stuffed up my butt, there is still room until I would get the nice, full feeling. Luckily, you can always add volume easily.

A longer chain is also nice for the obscene look of a big and heavy chain “leaking” out of the ass hole. If you fear, you might loose the chain inside your butt, simply wrap one of the end links around the base of your cock and balls. This is also the basis for a bit of an ass lock look: Push a (not too large) plug through the link, anchor the plug’s base around the link and wrap one link around your junk. The chain has not enough rigidity to transfer much of the jerking motion onto the plug. But if you have at least 7 links between the butt plug’s anchor link and the loose end, (forcefully) dangling and swinging the chain creates enough momentum to move the plug inside the bottom’s ass.

A SquarePeg Egg Anchored inside the Chain

For guys with real loose low-hangers, the fun stops no there. With a bit of work and dexterity, you can stack one link over the other while wrapping them around your sack’s neck. A top then pulling on the chain forcefully enough for the links to untangle and come loose is a unique CBT experience. Especially if the top took advantage of the tightly stretched balls and gave them a good beating.

In the past years, wearing increasingly larger chains around your neck at events like Folsom Europe has been a big trend. And the Flurb Chain can definitely play with the big boys in that field! The largest non-commercial anchor chain has a wire strength of 13mm, a pitiful 2mm less than this handsome beast. So now you just need to find a lock large and light enough to lock this silicone accessory around your neck. I am also sure, Flurb would be able to make a custom closed chain like a necklace you simply need to pull over your head.

The Chain compared to Private 10mm Anchor Chain and a Commercial Tool

One thing the Flurb Chain will not give you it the sensation of a compact, heavy chain resting in your colon. Being made ouf ot thick and considerably firm platinum silicone, a link weights around 31g. This means the almost one meter long 23 link version weights around 710g which is one third of a one meter 10mm wire strength short-link stainless steel chain. But the nice stuffy feeling in combination with the security platinum silicone offers over stainless steel, it is a good trade off!

Speaking of security, here is the usual platinum lecture: Only use with water or oil based lubes; never hybrid or silicone ones because it will damage the toys (this includes silicone oil or other products to shine rubber!). Store separately from other toys without touching other materials with plasticizers in them and pressure on the Chain. Wash in warm dish soap water, let/ wipe dry, sanitize and you are instantly ready to stuff this toy into another partner.

 Where to buy?

You can order the Chain directly from Flurb, ranging between 38,50€ for the smallest chain with 7 links  up to 126,51€ for 23 links.

Vendor: Neotori

This Anal Toy Sepcial finishes with another European company: Neotori, based in the center of my home country Germany. For about a year I started noticing this manufacturer through an increasing number of reader questions. So I am delighted to finish this special with a look at three plus one of their most popular toys – at least judging from your messages.

The Neotori Jorhan, Mundir, Finn & Qwim

Construction

Neotori is most famous for the beautiful marble coloration of their toys. While you can get the toys in single or split between body and base colorations for their softer toys, the double or triple split as what makes the toys really shine. You can choose between 28 colors which is almost Bad Dragon or OrganoToy territory. What Neotori does not offer (yet?) are glow in the dark colors! The vibrant hue you see in their social media pictures comes from UV active colors which glow when exposed to UV light around 395nm. So they look stunning in playrooms with black light but will not continue glowing when the light is turned off.

Detail of Finn’s Suction Cup

The vibrant colors are achieved by using platinum silicone as a material. From all the materials used to make anal toys out only glass carries color as well and brightly as platinum silicone. Besides that, it is 100% body safe and hypoallergenic. It’s also the best toys for orgies because it is easy to clean and sanitize between partners: Wash the lube off with warm dish soap water, dry, spray sanitizer on it and you are good to go again. Platinum has one drawback though: Never use silicone or hybrid lube with this kind of material! The silicone oil in it will disintegrate the surface and thus the toy over time.

Firmness-wise Neotori currently offers two options: Standard (Shore A00-50) and firm (Shore A8). I am aware that the current trend goes towards softer anal toys but their standard is considerably softer than the soft options from other brands. A friend of mine ordered their Mundir in standard – against my advice – because he wanted the orange-black split coloration shown on the website. He got the toys and it turned out that he had to be REALLY loose to knot this toy when riding it; otherwise he just compressed the neck below the knot.

Detail of Munrir’s Glans

The final customizing option is a suction cup. Unlike other manufacturer, they do not “naturally” integrate the cup into the base so it goes from edge to edge but mould a round/ oval dome into the bottom. This works good on toys like Mundir or Qwim that which have a base following the shape of the suction cup and not so good on toys like Finn where the suction cup is just covers portion of the base. On all three toys the rim around the suction cup is considerably thicker than on toys from other manufacturers in my collection. Due to this there is more force required to create the suction; simply sticking the toys to a surface is not enough. But you know my opinion on suction cups: Even a not perfect one is better than none so I recommend ordering only toys when possible.

Detail of Finn’s Glans

Playing with Finn, Jorhan, Mundir & Qwim

Let’s start hands-on part of this review with the most asked about toy: Finn the Cat. Even though anthro toys are becoming increasingly more popular with avid ass aficionados like me for their quality and texture, a large portion of the buyer base are still furries looking for a dick of their furson breed. While there are many canine and equidae dicks (more about that below) out there, feline penises are hard to come by. So I showed my Finn to a veterinarian and he confirmed that Finn is actually pretty close to the real deal.

Finn starts out with a relatively small glans. Instead of a drop below the glans, the glans rim is textured by two rows of implied barbs. Of course the “barbs” are touching the shaft over their entire length so unlike a feline glans, Finn is not difficult to pull out. But especially at the beginning of play, the texture creates a nice massaging stimulation inside the anus. Later in the play, the glans will become less interesting due to the large diameter the shaft opens up to.

Detail of Jorhan’s Glans

Below the glans the shaft almost perfectly conical increases in diameter till it reaches the base. The front and the back are lightly textured with ridges. What makes Finn interesting are the bumps which texture the space in the side. Rising up to 4mm (!), they are VERY noticeable and stimulate intensely. While they are fun to enjoy when riding, you get the most out of Finn when a top is twisting the dildo while pushing it in and out of the ass. The base features too very faint balls and as already written a not perfect suction cut. But since the base is thin in proportion to the rest of the toys, a top gets a good grip when compressing the balls for fucking the bottom with Finn.

The next toy also features an interesting glans design: Jorhan is a horse dick. But unlike other manufacturer who usually offer two versions of the equidae dildo – one unflared with a half-dome glans, one flared with a flat, almost trumpet-shaped tip – Neotori went for something in between. Jorhan’s glans has a bit of domey texture in the middle of a flat surface. Around the glans are fewer and thicker bumps than on more realistic dildos. The shaft that follows below the glans has about the same diameter as the flat surface on top of the glans. Except a bulge about 2/3 down the shaft and some texture just above the base, Jorhan is smooth and does not increase in diameter.

Detail of Jorhan’s Base

Through this unique design, Jorhan is a good toy for bottoms who want a wide stretch deep or train towards a flared model. Once the first or second sphincter opens up to the glans, it will stay stretched to the glans’ diameter. So even after long and intense sessions, the dildo will come out of the hole with some ease unlike with flared toys. Naturally, Jorhan is not for an anally inexperienced. The still flat glans requires a very loose hole to open up!

I was actually surprised how well my Jorhan XL in Firm stood up even when riding o bearing down on it. Generally speaking Neotori’s basees are rather on the small and thin side. But in comparison to the massive, long and thick shaft, the base is cartoonishly small and thin. From my experience, especially with horse dildos which can be difficult to handle through the size and weight, I sometimes would have wished for a 8 – 15mm ticker base for a more secure stand when playing alone or grip when topping with Jorhan.

Detail of Munrir’s Knot

From the start Mundir is a little more conventional. A point, canine-like glans with a small glans drop and an elongated barrel shape shaft make for an easy insertion and nice, even stretch. There a pair of ventral grooves at the top and at the bottom but otherwise Mundir is good for smooth stretching. But everything changes at the knot! Unlike other dog dildos, it features three not two cavernous bodies. While their shape is drawn-out and not compressed like on other dildos, the 50% higher number of bulges texturing the shaft makes this knot harder to take. Furthermore, with shaft-knot ratio of 1:1.6 Mundir is one the more brutish end of the canine toy scale.

But, as challenging as the knot might be, as satisfying it is to finally take it. It is a good, intense, horny stretch. Below the knot is a large enough resting space to prepare the hole for opening up again. When playing with a top twisting Mundir in the right spot massages the prostate (or if you are REALLY loose, the anus). The base is relative small but provides a good grip for tops or houses a strong enough suction cup for riding this dildo.

Qwim’s Heavily Textured Shaft and Glans

The final toy in this review was just introduced this August. It’s called Qwim and it’s a fantasy toy as in not based on an animal. The “glans” takes up the upper half of the toy. It is triangular “blade” textured with bumps on the edges and the surface. The lower half is a round shaft heavily textured with high ridges and bumps. What is described in short words is actually a dream for a texture freak like me. Riding Qwim pushes so many buttons inside my anus, my prostate and second sphincter. Because the glans is so bendy, it easily finds the way towards the second sphincter. And while the glans’ tip is small and smooth, the initial opening is easy. But the texture on this sensitive body area can be a bit much – or “pure bliss” to quote one of my testees.

Its shape makes Qwim a toy for more experienced bottoms. Since the glans easily bends, you have to be loose to take the first half of the toy. The heavy texture can make the anus tense up due to the stimulation. So a good pre-stretch is recommended to fully enjoy this toy. Qwim actually has my favorite base out of the four. Good size, solid support when riding or fucking.

Where to buy?

Neotori sells his toys only through their website due to the high degree of customization.  Finn, Mundir and Qwim start out at 29€ and Jorhan at 35€. Naturally, choosing larger sizes or adding options will increase the price.

Vendor: KnotMe

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

Construction

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

KnotMe Dragon and Buddy

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

Detail of the Suction Cup

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

Detail of Buddy’s Canine Glans

Playing with Buddy and Dragon

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

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

Buddy’s Knot

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

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

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

Dragon’s Glans

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

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

Dragon’s Knot

Where to buy?

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

Vendor: John Thomas Toys

John Thomas Toys is a good example how you, as my readers, influence what I review on this platform. Over the past few years, a larger number of silicone (fantasy) anal toy brands have been founded. Way more than I can keep track off. And sometimes, even a big brand slips below my radar (after all, ToyTorture.com is a hobby, not a 9to5 for me). So when over the course of the past few months I have been getting more and more messages about John Thomas Toys, I decided to include this brand as a first in this anal toy special.

The John Thomas Toys Beastli, Slinky, Ramsta and Conka

Construction

Like I have already written in the intro, John Thomas Toys only manufactures toys out of platinum silicone. In the past years, this material has become the material of choice for me and made me to replace ALL my vinyl toys for silicone ones. Platinum silicone is 100% body safe and hypoallergenic. The surface is super-smooth making it hard for bacteria to linger and the toys easy to clean: Soak them in warm dish-soap water, if necessary use a soft brush to get lube residues off, dry, sanitize and store away. What some consider a draw-back is that you must not use silicone lube with platinum silicone because the silicone oil in it will dissolve the silicone. As an avid anal player who only uses water-based resp. powder-based lubes like vetgel or XLube and very rarely Crisco, this limitation does not really affect me and to be frank all my other play partners. In order not to expose the toys to plasticizers that could harm them, stores them in a well ventilated place without touching other toys, especially rubber or vinyl/ PVC toys. There have been (anecdotal) cases of different silicone toys effecting each other but the reactivity at room temperature of properly processed platinum silicone is very low so it is highly unlikely.

Detail of Beastli’s Textured Glans

So much what is true for all platinum silicon manufacturer. While most companies in this industries offer almost a plethora of customization possibilities, John Thomas Toys takes a different route: They design the toys in the UK and manufacture them in the USA. This means, unlike other companies where you have to wait for weeks and months, their stock is ready to be dispatched immediately.  Drawback is, what you see on their website is what you get. Colorwise this means all toys come in black and usually in one or two other colors/ pattern. You can choose between soft and medium firmness, which – to be frank at Shore A15 and A20 is more a medium and firm. All toys come with a vac-u-lock home which makes them easier to navigate when playing with a partner (simply stick one finger in it) or enables a wide range of nifty accessories like handles, suction cups or fuck machines when you play on your own.

Detail of Slinky’s Softly Flowing Texture

Beastli, Slinky, Ramsta & Conka

Generally speaking, John Thomas Toys makes toys for texture aficionados. Almost all of their toys are covered in grooves, ridges, bumps and drops which make for an intense stimulation of the anus and the prostate. Naturally these toys are not for compete novices because the texture makes these toys harder to take than like-sized smooth counterparts. So either pre-stretch properly or choose a size smaller than you would usually do. However, some of the toys are tamer than they might look at first glance.

 

Detail of Beastli’s Curveted Rigdes

Beastli is the most intense of the four toys in this review. Starting out with a dullish glans textured with two rings of bumps and a considerable glans rim drop, it starts out with a bang for the anus and the prostate. The shaft’s basic shape is a steeply tapering, slightly convex cone. But this shape is actually hard to spot because the shaft is heavily textured. Five curveted, steep and thick ridges divide the body in six segments. Between these segments the surface is not smooth but covered in small grooves and bumps; it almost looks like elephant skin. At the back of the shaft runs a thick ventral groove from just below the glans all the way to the bottom. All of this texture makes the Beastil the perfect toy for riding on your own. While the diameter gradually increases, your ass opens up over time more and more to take the next ridge until you hit the base. Since none of the texture runs perfectly perpendicular, the Beastli is also a good toy for getting fucked by a partner. Twisting the dildo inside the hole unleashes a completely new set of sensations because feeling the curvature of the ridges move inside the hole is a unique sensation neither my testees nor I have felt before.

Detail of Slinky’s Tip and Texture

Compare Beastli, the Slinky is a surprising soft and gentle toy. It has actually become my top recommended toy for bottoms starting out with texture play. At the top there is a long and smooth cone-shaped glans that softly opens up the sphincter. The maximum diameter of this toy is only about 5% larger than the glans diameter. So if you can take the glans, you can take the rest of the toy. The shaft is texture with smoothly rising and relatively steeply dropping ridges. These ridges go all around the shaft. There is not ventral groove or other lateral texture. This means then a top twists the toy in order to encourage the anus to open up more, no texture will irritate this delicate body area causing it to tense up. The sensation of having Slinky more or less rapidly enter and leave the anus is more of a gentle message. So it looks tougher than it is actually is.

Detail of Ramsta’s Tip and Texture

This also accounts for the last two toys in this review. Despite being very different in basic shape – Ramsta beiong a dildo and Conka a plug – they share the same properties. Ramsta starts out with a perfectly cone-shaped, slightly elongated tip. From there on the shaft slightly increases in diameter till the base. Just below the tip a ring of six half-dome bumps with a diameter of 18.5mm and a height of 14mm goes around the shaft (all size for my size large). There are seven of these rings which are staggered so in the gap between two bumps there is a bump in the ring below. The gaps are filled with two 10mm x7mm bumps above each other. Since the diameter increases further down the shaft, the gaps between the bumps increase. To be honest, taking the first ring of bumps is a challenge. The individual bumps are quite steeps and the relatively large gaps between them are not really encouraging the sphincter to open up. So a good pre-stretch is necessary! But once inside, the bumps are so close together that they more feel like a bumpy surface than individual peaks. Yes, the sensation of having Ramsta vigorously drilled into your ass and quickly twisted is intense. But not nearly as intense as you might guessed/ feared from looking at the dildo. The sensation becomes more intense the further you go down the shaft because the gap between the bumps increases.

Conka’s Vac-U-Lock Hole as an Example for the Feature on all John Thomas Toys

With the Conka is about the same game. It looks intense but then actually surprised how gentle it was. The almost perfectly cone-shaped body is covered in staggered rows of four cone-shaped bumps. While at the tip there are two rows of small ones, over the following six rows the diameter only slightly increases so there are no gaps. The gaps between four last big bumps is filled with two small bumps. When I looked at the toy, I guessed it would be heavy to take. But the bumps are so evenly distributed without gaps, they feel and behave like a textured surface with. The sensation intensity between Conka and Ramsta is about the same as between Slinky and Beastli. The Conka gives a nice, intense massage when fucking or twisting inside the hole.

John Thomas Toys only sells their toys directly through their website. The models cost between £39.95 and £229.95 depending on the shape and size. When you want to purchase one of the models, I highly recommend searching for them on John Thomas Toys’ website to see if they have an exciting color for this particular toy in stock. Mine are all black but for the bunch I am going to get, I will most definitely be more adventurous colorwise.

Construction

Both Thor’s Hammer and Chorizo n‘ Eggs are realistic toys, meaning they are modeled after a human penis.

The Mr Hankey’s Toys Chorizo n‘ Egg & Thor’s Hammer

Thor’s Hammer starts out with a steeply tapering, cut glans which has a diameter of 80mm. Missing the foreskin, the glans has a relatively steep drop below the glans rim. Just below the glans there is a narrow area of light bulges and grooves which resemble the scars of a circumcision.  At this area the shaft has a diameter of 74mm which then increases in size to 84mm above the balls. The 250mmm long shaft is textured with few yet thick veins and a big ventral groove. The base is shaped like two balls for a good grip when playing with Thor’s Hammer.

Like no man’s dick is the same, the Chorizo n‘ Eggs is a completely different game. The most noticeable difference is the foreskin over the glans through with the glans tip is peeking out. This leads to the glans being a bit dull. In addition is short and tapers shallower. There is a small drop below the glans. The shaft is almost textureless and in the first third reaches the maximum diameter and the lightly decreases in diameter before hitting the two big, bulgy balls which form the base. Unlike Thor’s Hammer which is a one-size toy, Chorizo n‘ Eggs comes in five sizes.

Size Diameter Glans Diameter Mid-Shaft Diameter Above Base Insertable Length Overall Length
Small 50mm 56mm 55mm 157mm 201mm
Medium 60mm 68mm 65mm 185mm 241mm
LG/ XL 70mm 79mm 75mm 216mm 280mm
XXL 80mm 90mm 85mm 243mm 305mm
XXXL 96mm 109mm 105mm 285mm 365mm

Detail of the Vac-u-Loch Holes

Material-wise both toys are similar. They are made out of platinum silicone, making the toys 100% body-safe, super-smooth and easy to clean. A little grain of salt is that silicone toys must not be used with silicone or hybrid lube. Both kinds of lube will disintegrate the surface. Water and oil based lube are safe to be used with silicone toys.

Detail of Thor’s Hammer’s Veine Texture

Silicone is a material that can be colored easily and which color does not fade over time. As standard colors Mr Hankey’s only offers their dildos in black, natural tan or deep brown. However, for $29.95 you can get custom coloring, like the two-tones I have gotten mine in. Firmness-wise you also get only two choice. First there is Medium which is a bit firmer, about the firmness of a rock-hard dick. If you are a texture junkie like me, you definitely want to go this way because it makes every ridge and vein very noticeable! 75% firmness is a bit softer. It turns the texture into tantalizing massage spots and thus is more recommended for the novice. Mr Hankey’s Toys does offer custom firmness if you want the toys smoother or firmer. For only $4.95 a Vac-U-Loc hole can be added to every toy. Originally designed to attach the toy to fuck machines, there are a number of nifty accessories out there for this kind of system: Handles, Strap-On harnesses, suction cups and double-dildo connectors. Because of this I highly recommend adding this inexpensive feature to your toy. There are just too many useful scenarios along the way to go cheap on this one – even if you don’t have the accessories. During play I stick my finger in the hole to control the toy more easily.

The Dullish Glans of Chorizo ’n Eggs

Playing with the Thor’s Hammer & Chorizo ‘n Eggs

I was inclined to say that Thor’s Hammer is a beginner’s toy – if it wasn’t for his size! The glans gradually open ups the sphincter for an easy initial insertion. The big glans drop however stimulates intensively both the anus and prostate when fucking vigorously all the way.

Through the gradual increase of shaft diameter, Thor’s Hammer does not challenge the hole diameter-wise. This is good because the texture is somewhat between a challenge and a delight for the experienced anal play. The veins both run lateral and perpendicular so regardless if you ride this dildo or have your top twist it in your hole, there will be an intense stimulation. Since there are so few but high-risen veins, you can feel each and every one of them. So despite the gradual increase, it is not a warm-up toy. The base actually surprised me a bit: I fear that the small diameter would make Thor’s Hammer hard to ride without a Vac-u-Lock suction cup. It turns out, in most solo play situations, the base does not break out easily. So it is a fun and convenient toy for solo play.

Thor’s Hammer’s Cone-Shaped Glans

While Thor’s Hammer is not for the faint of heart, Chorizo n’ Eggs is actually a good training toy – if you pick the right size for you. To be honest, the dull and short glans makes it a bit hard to initially take. Most of my (not so experienced) testees found a bit of pre-stretching with a plug useful. But since the maximum diameter sits in the upper third of the shaft, riding Chorizo n’ Eggs is good for training the sphincter to open up more easily. It is actually one of the few toys I would recommend to train an anus to open up for a fist. The dullish tip, cone-shaped glans and increasing and decreasing of diameter very loosely resembles how it feels to take a fit – of course in way shallower scale.

Chorizo ’n Egg’s Shaft with the max Diameter in the Upper Third of the Shaft

Compared to its length, Chorizo n’ Eggs is quite girthy, even above the base and despite the max diameter sitting way higher. Due to this, some of my testees found it the perfect toy to “sit on” without getting problems with their second sphincter – at least in the smaller size. Again, it is a good toy to train the sphincter to keep open. The shaft features little frills. This is good for a training toy which should be easy to take. But when playing with a partner, the toy quickly gets “boring”. So when you are looking for a toy to make your bottom squirm, I would recommend to look for a toy with a little more texture, like Mr Hankey’s Lampwick. But for solo play and especially training, the Chorizo n’ Eggs is great toy.

Where to buy?

SquarePeg Slink Tickler & Slink Spike

Form: Dildo
Material: Platinum Silicone

Firmness: Soft
Lube: Water, Oil
Cleaning: Soaking in hot water with dish-soap than use sanitizer.

Storage: Store in a well-ventilated place not touching other toys to prevent damage.

Vendor: Regulation (EU) & Mr S (USA)

The Tickler and the Spike are the latest varieties of the ever growing Slink family from SquarePeg. First launched in 2011 as a “plain” depth toy, now there are four textured and two smooth versions out there. So let’s see if those two make their siblings proud.

The SquarePeg Slink Tickler & Slink Spike

Construction

The Tickler follows the basic shape as all Slinks: At the bottom there is an oval, 20% larger than maximum stretch base which fits well between the ass cheeks. Into the base’s rim is the toy’s name embossed. 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 unlike other Slinks is not round but oval measuring 64x51mm and sits perpendicular towards the base. Over the length of 420mm the body tappers in very long cone to a pointy yet rounded tip. The entire body is loosely covered with about 5mm high and 18mm wide round bumps. Looking at the overall length of almost 500mm, the Tickler is just a bit shorter and thinner than the MDL size original Slink.

Comparison of the Two Tips

The Spike has a different shape than all of his brothers. Out off the 430mm overall body length, the first third is cone-shaped and tapers from a 12mm diameter tip to an oval shape of 53x64mm. Over the rest of the length it only gradually increases in size to a maximum diameter of 64x72mm. Just below the middle of this section lies a 60mm wide cluster of bumps. The rim at the end of the shaft features an Acorn-like bulge, though it is thinner and just 2mm high. Due to this bulge, the base is a hybrid of the Acorn’s dullish transition from body to neck and the Slinks’ smooth tapering transition from neck to base.

Like all SquarePeg toys, both are made out of supersoft, high quality platinum silicone which is 100% body safe, super-smooth and bendy. Also it is easy to clean: After playing, wash the toy with warm soap water, dry it, sanitize it and it is ready for play again, making it ideal for safe use during orgies. Because the silicone oil in silicone and hybrid lubes disintegrates most likely even the toys platinum silicone, only use water and oil-based lubes with silicone toys like the Tickler or Spike.

Playing with the Slink Tickler & Slink Spike

Depth play is one of the most delicate forms of anal play. Once you leave the rectum the colon is covered in sensitive mucosa which when being exposed to tactile stimulation causes the body to tense up. Because of this the Slink has always been a toy for the more depth-savvy player because the “pointy” tip easily bends away when colon tenses up, making entry into deeper areas very difficult. The Spike addresses this issue a bit. While the first 50mm of the toy shares the extreme bendiness of his brothers it then is a bit stiffer and thus easier to navigate. Both the steepness of the tip and the body are great for gradually opening up the second sphincter. Yet still, the Spike is a toy for a bit depth-experienced player due to the body’s diameter.  The Tickler is thinner but the “sudden” added girth of the bumps can cause an untrained colon to tense up, making it difficult at times to progress deeper compared to other Slinks.

Detail of the Tickler’s Texture

BUT: For the depth experienced player, the Tickler has many things to offer. First, even considering the bendiness and length that makes all Slinks difficult to handle on your own, the Tickler is actually the first Slink I found useful for selfplay. The oval body shape gives a sense of direction when navigating depth. You can slowly twist, turn and stretch until the tip finds an angle to slip through. Due to the bump relatively close to the tip this can be an unexpected intense but rewarding sensation. The bump also adds rigidness so the tip does not bend as easily as other Slinks, making it an easier toy for opening up the transition from rectum to colon.

Second, the bumps do to the colon what the SquarePeg’s Pegger range does to the anus: The bumps will stimulate the sensitive colon in ways none of my testees have experience before! The added girth of the bumps makes the toy feel considerably wider than it actually is leading to a stretch sensation comparable to a way higher depth play experience level. To take this sensation further, slowly and carefully twist the toy. This will force the oval shape out of a comfortable and less stretching position into the direct opposite. Of course, twisting will also draw extreme attention to the bumps. Slowly twisting, the bumps massage or tickle the colon, depending on how sensitive you are. Increasing the speed drove most testees to a state somewhere between agony and ecstasy and lead them to tense up. Luckily, being made out of such a soft material and the bumps being very smooth, the chance of even a very “active” sub being injured is very low.

Detail of the Bump Cluster on the Spike

Like the Tickler, the Spike is more for the experienced play. The huge shaft is MASSIVE due to silicone’s weight. Being stiffer than other Slinks in theory it is a tad bit easier to handle. But the weight requires two hands to wield it. Doing that crouching and with lubey hands is a challenge; the toy itself does not stand up.

So better get a partner to insert the Spike into your rectum and colon. Spike’s unique shaped compared to the other models make it a perfect training tool for taking a hand deep. The wide shaft stretcher the colon and prepares it for the sensation of something big moving inside it. Furthermore, the relative stiffness while preserving much of the supersoft silicone’s bendiness helps straighten the colon out a bit. Not forcefully but nudging it in the right direction.

The bump cluster is a little bit of a double-edged sword: It is fun to stimulate the anus with it, especially when twisting and turning. Due to the body’s oval shape, this movement will also train the second sphincter to open up more easily. Depending on the bottom’s anatomy, the bumps can also stimulate the second sphincter and this is a huge challenge for most bottoms! Yes, the bumps are well rounded and look shallow. But on these sensitive body areas the stimulation can quickly become too intense. Some depth-savvy testees theoretically could have taken the Spike deeper but the stimulation was too intense. In the end, it is an acquired taste that can be trained over time.

Comparison of the two Necks and Bases

Compared to the bumps, the bulge at the end of the shaft is almost negligible. When the anus is exposed to this stimulation, there are much stronger stimulations felt down the colon so the little edge is not noticed. However, this added kink helps the Spike stay inside when taken completely. A “standard” Slink neck-body transition would be too gentle to keep the heavy Spike locked inside.

Where to buy?

When you order from Europe, you can get the Slink Tickler for £149 or the Slink Spike for £229 at Regulation. In the USA, Mr S sells the Spike for $229.95; the Tickler is not available at their website yet.
