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: 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.

Conka with his Even Texture

Where to buy?

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.

E-Bead 2.0

Small & Large E-Stim Systems E-Bead 2.0

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the new E-Stim Systems version of Mr SElectrified World’s Most Comfortable Butt Plug that. Since the WMCBP has always been a signature product of Mr S, another product E-Stim Systems now manufactures for them got little attention: The E-Bead 2.0. In my opinion too little attention, to let’s take a look at this toy.

Design

The E-Bead 2.0 is a bi-polar, insertable electrode. This means you do not need another electrode for stimulation. The two poles equally sized and barrel-shaped which taper about a third each way towards their flat tops and bottoms. Between them is a thin isolator made out of black polymer. Unlike other E-Stim Systems electrode, both poles are permanently connected. Due to this design, there are now two 4mm banana jacks on the bottom of the electrode but a 155cm long sturdy lead with a 3.5mm jack is soldered onto is.

What the E-Bead 2.0 does have in common with E-Stim Systems other premium electrode is aircraft grade aluminum they are made out of. The surface features a brushing that gives the material a silk-like look and feel.

The E-Beads 2.0 comes in two sizes for different experience levels.

Size Overall Length Barrel Diameter Barrel Length Isolator Length Weight
Small 96mm 32mm 38mm 20mm 130g
Large 124mm 38mm 51mm 22mm 255g

Playing with the E-Bead 2.0

If you have played before with other premium insertables from E-Stim Systems, you will soon realize that the E-Bead 2.0 is unlike (almost) every other electrode they make. This is largely due to both sides being equally large and equally heavy or to be frank, a bit tail-heavy due to the lead. Since both barrels have the same, large mass and relatively large surface area, the sensation of the E-Bead 2.0 is mostly smooth – depending on your power box, program and output level. This is not really a short-coming but if you wrap your head around it, it becomes a cool new way of playing.

The most common game my tested played was challenging (looser) subs standing straight or suspended in a harness to keep the electrode in. While this does not sound too hard at first glance, the E-Bead focuses most of the stimulation directly on the sphincter causing the sub to tense it. When the stimulation decreases, he relaxes and the electrode could fall out. A loosely related game did a dom play with his sub: Put him in a jockstrap, loose shorts, attach the electrode to a remote controlled box and the sub has to walk around and not facing the embarrassment of a buttplug electrode falling out of his ass. He tried this type of play with other electrodes but since the base usually has considerably less weight than the head, it only worked well with either extremely large electrodes or the E-Bead 2.0.

As an electrode for lying down, the E-Bead 2.0 got mixed reviews from bottoms. Some liked the slimmer footprint since there is not base, others found the lower barrel too long and thus uncomfortable. And of course, depending on the bottom’s experience level, there is a chance of the electrode just slipping in.

Detail of the Isolator between the Two Poles

The highlight of the E-Bead 2.0 is of course the fact that through the soldered lead it is a closed system. This means the electrode can be completely pushed into the rectum. This is opens up a completely new field of e-stim play. Through the large mass and length, the electrode “spins” inside the hole, touching areas otherwise never stimulated. The effect intensifies when the bottom wiggles and moves and thus somehow comes close to feedback loops created by audio or movement programs on power boxes: The more the bottom moves, the more movement inside the rectum, the more stimulation. Especially with the large electrode, electrode’s mass moving around inside the body adds another layer of stimulation. This kind of sensation is the strongest when the sub moves freely, when walking for example. Another unique experience for loose subs is when a skilled top slip two fingers in and press the prostate between the two poles for a mind-blowing stimulation.

Of course, this construction makes handling the E-Bead 2.0 a bit different from other electrodes. You must not pull on the lead to get it out! The lead is sturdy but not made to handle this kind of force. Instead, the bottom should push it out. Due to the shape, the electrode sometimes “jams” inside the rectum but rest assured: Everything that goes in, comes out again. Though being fistable for the top to grab it manually is nifty and adds another aspect to the play 😉 Since the electrode can’t be disassembled, simply wash the body and the lead in warm soap water, leaving the plug outside the water.

Sirius & Habanero Prostate Massager

The ElectraStim Sirius (left) and Habanero (right) laying on the Storage Bag

Vendor: ElectraStim

Last year ElectraStim introduced their new Fusion range of e-stim toys which stands out through a signature red & black color pattern. So for this year’s E-Stim Special I decided to compare how the new Fusion prostate massager compares to their “old” yet still in production Noir one.

Design

Both toys follow the same basic design: A bean shaped head sits on a small neck perpendicular to a roughly kidney shaped body. At the bottom of it, there is a hinge to adjust the angle between the body and the base. This is necessary because everyone’s anatomy is different so in order to target the prostate some adjustment is necessary.

The base is oval and again a bit bulky. Through the bulgy at the tip, it can be used to stimulate the prostate area on the perineum. Inside the lower half of the sides there are grooves for better grip when manually moving the toy to massage the prostate. At first glance, the base is the biggest difference between the two toys: At the Sirius it is completely smooth and has for 2mm pin jacks perpendicular to the bottom. The Habanero has four ridges on the top and at the bottom there is a big recess with two 2mm pin jacks parallel to the body and deep cable ducts to organize the lead.

Detail how both Toys can Bend to adjust to each Body

Other difference come up when you look at both toys more closely. While both have a max. insertable length of 115mm, the Habanero is bulkier in all dimensions: The head measures 29x43mm vs. 25x41mm; the body 34x44mm vs. 29x37mm. Also the cast seam running around both toys in the middle is almost not noticeable on the Habanero while you can see albeit not really feel it inside your anus on the Sirius.

As you can tell form the number of jacks, the Habanero is a bi-polar toy. The black conductive silicone patches are very prominent on the red silicone of the body. Both patches run on the sides from the head down to the neck above the base. The Sirius has four conductive patches: Two on top of the base and two running from the head till the middle of the body.

Both toys are made out of medical grade silicone. So they are a 100% body-safe – and a dust magnet. As you can see from the pics, despite washing them thoroughly before taking the pictures for this review, the time to dry was enough for them to get dusty again. Luckily they are easy to clean! Just wash them in hot dish-soap water, let them dry, spray sanitizer and then store them away. To protect them from other plasticizers of other toys in your toy box, they come with a nifty cloth storage bag.

Playing with the Sirius and Habanero

There are two aspects to look at when comparing the two toys: The mechanical and electronic stimulation. Mechanical stimulation means putting rubbing and pressing on the prostate both inside the rectum and on the perineum and enjoying the stretching sensation inside the anus when moving the toy in and out. In this category the Habanero is clearly ahead. Being bulkier, the stimulation on all three areas is stronger. A healthy prostate has about the size of a walnut. The slightly flatter and larger head of the Habanero is better to target it. There is a lower chance of slipping when applying pressure on it. When “tickling” it between the head’s bottom and the neck, the longer slope is beneficial. The same applies for the more voluminous body for stretching the anus. Because it is considerably longer than wide, twisting it inside the anus or during fucking, is an interesting experience. Over time, most testees developed a “routine” how to move the massager to synchronize maximum prostate and anus stimulation. This is important because piling up as much sensations as possible is necessary to ultimately achieve an anal or prostate orgasm. Though both take a lot of practice so don’t expect them out of the box (unless you are VERY talented). Finally, there is the perineum stimulation and to be honest, there is not that much difference. The ridges on the Habanero do not increase the stimulation significantly. If you are hair, it is actually quite the reverse. But again, the bulkier size helps with the applying pressure to the prostate and the larger base generally make the control of the manual stimulation easier.

I was lucky enough to have both plugs tested by (almost) anal virgins in order to determine if Sirius’ smaller size has an advantage there. It’s not that you accuse me of only testing the toys on fist sluts who know no size limitations. Yes, of course the Sirius is easier to take. But for both toys these two recommend some pre-stretching. The complex shape going wider and thinner several times is a bit of a challenge for an inexperienced anus. Once pre-stretched, the size difference is almost not there anymore.

Detail of the Sirius‘ Poles on the Body’s Side and Bottom’s Top

Naturally, both toys should be well-lubed before being used. ONLY use water-based lube on them. Silicone lube will disintegrate the toy, starting with making the surface sticky. Furthermore, silicone lube is an isolator while water-based lube conducts electricity which is essential for the electronic stimulation.

Before I dive into looking in the differences of the two toys, first a short general excurse on e-stim sensation: Independently from the selected program and power unit, it is determined by mass and surface area of the conductor. The smaller and lighter, the stingier it will be. Being made out of conductive silicone, the sensation of both toys is on the stingier side of the sensation spectrum. This is not necessarily as unpleasant as it sounds. In low intensity it can be an enticing tingling. But when turning it up, it can become excruciating more quickly than on metal plugs for example.

This being said, looking at the two toys, this time the Sirius won more favors in my testee panel. This is largely due to having four poles. A vertical pole split instead of a horizontal is unusual for an insertable electrode but a common on ElectraStim products. Through this layout the popular fucking sensation of the wave-like patterns is not popular. Instead it focuses the sensation right inside the sphincter which leads to an interesting phase of re-discovering your power box. When I played with both plugs, I started to like programs I never liked and hated some of my favorites. Since the Sirius does not only have poles on the sides but also on the top of the base, you can create a connection between those pole pairs. Then the currency somewhat flows through the prostate which I personally found a more enjoyable and more stimulation experience (the prostate rivals the anus with nerve ending density). However, since the leads stick out of the bottom of the Sirius instead of being lead out of the body like on the Habanero, using the Sirius is a bit complicated. You can basically only use it lying down, while you can sit on the Habanero, riding and grinding it for max. manual stimulation.

So, in the end, which one of the two is for you? It depends on what you are looking for. If your focus is on e-stim, get the Sirius. It is more flexible and the more elaborate e-stim toy. Also, if you are familiar with e-stim, you have probably found ways of dealing with suboptimal lead positions. If your primary focus is the manual stimulation you want to spice up with added e-stim fun, I would recommend the Habanero. All things considered, the prostate play savvy members of my testee panel managed to get prostate orgasms with both. So regardless which one of the two you choose, with enough training (and being chaste long and not too long enough I have been told…), you will learn how to climax with them.

E-WMCBP 2.0

The E-Stim Systems E-WMCBP 2.0

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

A little bit over 4 ½ years ago I reviewed the original version of Mr S’ Electrified World’s Most Comfortable Butt Plug. Mr S discontinued the original model some time again – both the electrified one (probably because there have been problems with lead fractures) and “analog” one. In March 2019 a new all-silicone version was introduced, leaving e-stim lovers twitching bit unsatisfied. Luckily half a year later Mr S Leather proudly presented E-Stim Systems as the manufacturer of an all new Electrified World’s Most Comfortable Butt Plug or short E-WMCBP 2.0. Being a big fan of E-Stim Systems’ premium electrodes and having to live up to a massive legacy, I was very excited for this review! Let’s see how the E-WMCBP 2.0 performs.

Design

As the name already states the E-WMCBP 2.0 is an insertable electrode and like almost all premium E-Stim Systems ones a bi-polar one, meaning you don’t need another electrode to enjoy the sensation. Like its brothers it is made out of aircraft grade aluminum which is treated with E-Stim Systems’ “new” matt finished, giving it a slik-like look and feel.

Detail of the Screw and Banana Jack for the Body

The basic form follows the one of the original World’s Most Comfortable Butt Plug: The body starts out cone-shaped with a dull tip followed by a barrel-shaped middle section which about 60% of the overall body length until it tapers again into a cone-shaped bottom. The transition from sloped cone to straight barrel is softly rounded and thus a bit more comfortable than on the original toy.

Like all E-Stim Systems premium electrodes now follows a neck made out of a black polymer which 28mm long and has a diameter of 11mm. This houses and isolates (together with a small white polymer washer) the stainless steel screw from the base. At the bottom of the screw there is not only a 4mm banana jacket but also a 2mm deep hex key socket.

The base is a disc with 50mm diameter and 11mm height. The middle is slightly tapering towards the neck and softly flows into the disc’s surface. On base’s side there is another hole for a 4mm banana plug, turning the disc into the second pole.

The E-WMCBP 2.0 comes in two sizes. Both sizes share the base but the body is significantly different.

Size Overall Length Body Diameter Body Length Weight
Medium 126mm 38mm 75mm 270g
Large 139mm 44mm 88mm 355g

The E-WMCBP 2.0 Disassembled

Playing with the E-WMCBP 2.0

Being an e-stim plug, let’s see how the E-WMCBP 2.0 performs in that regard. Being offering a large mass and surface, this electrifiable butt plug provides very smooth and pleasurable sensations to start out with. Though depending on the box, program and power level naturally can turn into a stingy beasty. The relatively large and thick base compared to other E-Stim Systems’ insterables makes the sensation even a tad bit softer than other plugs. Due to the top-down-pole-distribution this plug is perfect for the often sought getting-fucked sensation wave-shaped programs provide.

All the points more or less also applied to the original design. The greatest different is the mechanical and thus handling aspect of the new plug. The most important difference is the stiff neck that connects the base with the body. Being rigid there is a leverage effect, especially when being outside and walking. In combination with the heavy and voluminous body this lead to interesting sensation inside the rectum, particularly when the head hits the prostate.

Detail of the Base with the Banana Jack and Tapering Center

My testee panel was split on judging this effect. Some enjoyed the added stimulation, other said that WMCBP lost a bit of its charm and USP of being comfortable, even almost unnoticeable wearable over hours without the flexible connection. I have never been a fan of long-term plug wearing so I cannot tip the scales. So when you have to replace a possible broken original Electrified Worlds Most Comfortable Butt Plug keep in mind that the wearing sensation can be very different. Since the neck is longer and thinner than on all other E-Stim Systems’ electrodes, the sphincter closes up more, so through the leverage this event is intensified when the anus twitched from the stimulation. As an added bonus the thinner and longer neck lowered the risk of the plug falling out when being out and about. This effect is supported by the different base design. The original base had a flat surface that was connected by a 45° edge to the sides. So a relatively large, flat surface was pressing against the anus, having some leverage effect. It is surprising, but the little tapering middle section makes for an enormously more comfortable, almost ergonomic wearing experience, compensating a bit the negative effect of the solid neck.

Detail of the Tapered Body with Blunt Tip

The stiff neck has another advantage. The original plug was a nightmare to push through the sphincter once lubed the toy. The body became slippery and gripping the base did not provide any help at all. With the rigid connection, even after lubing up the base serves as a comfortable handle. Speaking of insertion: Being made completely out of metal and polymer, in theory you can now use silicone lube with the E-WMCBP 2.0 – but only if you use it without e-stim stimulation. Silicone lube is an isolator. If you want sizzling e-stim fun, only use water-based lube (Specific e-stim lube is not necessary in most cases. Personally I use Swiss Navy Waterbased for e-stim).

Following the E-Stim Systems’ standard design for premium insertables, the E-WMCBP 2.0 addresses two of my major points of criticism on the original toy: Where on the legacy version lead fractures was a constant threat, the E-WMCBP 2.0 is virtually indestructible. Also cleaning is a jiffy: Unscrew the body from the base, take all elements apart and wash in hot dish-soap water, dry, sanitize, done.

Conclusion: An evolution in quality and performance of an iconic toy while losing a bit of the original’s uniqueness

Oxballs got a new Pig-Hole
Here’s the review

Happy Valentine’s Day! ToyTorture.com is still on hiatus and will return just in time for the Easter debaucheries in Berlin. But every time Oxball releases a new Pig-Hole, my inbox explodes. So I am taking a break from the break to tell you the thoughts of the ToyTorture.com Testee Panel on the new Pig-Hole Morph.

The Pig-Hole Morph XXL

Construction

There is not much new about the Pig-Hole Morph. It is still a tunnel plug with a barrel-shaped body. Inside the body there are grooves for a bit added stability and texture sensation. The top of the body is a bit slanted for easy insertion while at the bottom it tappers and the opens up to a nice and wide base.

It comes in four sizes: Large, XL, FF and Deep-2 (the larger one of the Pig-Hole Deep) and is only available in a dark & light blue swirl with glitter. This tone is the signature color of Oxball’s new Morph Silicone which sets this toy apart from its predecessors. Keeping the shape, dimensions and wall thickness the same as the toys in the original silicone, the Morph Silicone is 10% stretchier (and about 10% lighter if you really have to watch your weight when flying…). Cleaning-wise it is still easy maintenance with just hot dish-soap water, a bit of brushing, drying, sanitizing and done.

The Original Pig-Hole XXL, the Pig-Hole Morph XXL and the Original Pig-Hole FF

Playing with the Pig-Hole Morph

If you want to know what makes the original Pig-Hole or the Pig-Hole FF great for play, check out their original reviews. In this article, I will focus how the new stretchiness of the material impacts the play.

First the bad news: The softer material makes the Pig-Hole even more difficult to insert. My recommendation is still to fold the toy, push the compact package through the sphincter and then manually unfold it. Folding the toy’s body with lubey hands has become a bit easier through the softer material, but getting it to pop through a not already gaping sphincter has become more difficult. Also, the unfolding takes a lightly looser sphincter than before since the material has less basic tension. So it is easier for the sphincter to close it (partly). But on the other hand, the Pig-Hole now adjusts more easily to body and gives in to movement. This is important for the people who want to wear it long-term. Especially when walking, the original silicone the base a bit to rigid and in some situation had so much leverage that the body was pulled out. This does not happen with the Morph.

Details of the Grooves inside the Body

The softer material also makes it easier to fist through the Pig-Hole. The top can get in easier and the chances of pulling the entire Pig-Hole out with the fist, are significantly lower. Since the material does adjust more to the surroundings and whatever is stuffed inside it, my testees preferred the Morph over the original Pig-Hole when adding a plug for shutting it. The plug stayed better in place, was more comfortable to wear over time and kept liquids from escaping more securely.

Detail of the Size Indicator at the Base

Finally, let’s talk about the texture side of things. Finally, the grooves inside the body can be felt properly when the top is targeting them. With the original material it was just a faint massaging, with the Morph you can really feel them when the top is pressing against them. If you want more, simply turn the Pig-Hole inside out. While this was already possible under great stress with the original Pig-Hole XXL and is probably theoretically possible with the original Pig-Hole FF, with the Morph it is a jiffy. Now the grooves are on the outside and pulled over a large enough toy or fist can turn it into an interesting textured plug!

Where to buy?

In the USA, Mr S sells the Pig-Hole Morph for $96.95 – 133.95 while in the EU Abgott Fetish seems to be the only retailer so far selling it between 80€ and 110€.

Vendor: SquarePeg (USA) & Regulation (EU)

Sometimes new products overshadow a classic: I did a little survey among the people asking me about SquarePeg toys which they considered the oldest and most iconic design of the manufacturer. Most answered the Egg, a large portion the Acorn and very few only the Happy Hour – despite this plug being incepted into the collection a year before the popular Egg Plug. This lag of attention is a shame because this delicate plug could push the buttons many of you desire to have manipulated. So let’s drag this hidden star into the limelight a bit.

The SquarePeg Happy Hour XL and Monst in Supersoft Graphite

Construction

The Happy Hour Plug starts out with a domed, elongated head that tapers slightly at the bottom. At the back the runs a thin ridge towards the maximum stretch. This maximum stretch tapers cone-shaped after a small neck below the head. The cone is oval, being wider in the dimension parallel to the foot. This width is a bit undercut by a wide and deep v-shaped groove connecting the end of the ridge with the neck.  The maximum stretch tapers equally smoothly towards the neck which is also oval. Below the neck is a thick, oval base which was inspired by the Acorn so it fits comfortably between the cheeks. But it is also sturdy enough for a good grip of not too lubey hands if you want to fuck your bottom’s hole with it.

Comparison of the Monster’s Lateral and the XL’s Ventral Max Stretch

The Happy Hour comes in a plethora of sizes, but not every size comes in every color/ firmness. This is actually one of my personal points of criticism: The Medium or Large (which might be a bit too long) size in Firm Black would be my perfect version of the toy. But since SquarePeg considers this combo too extreme, they sadly do not offer it. For this review I was sent the Monster size and the new XL which in my opinion was a much needed addition to the range. The gap between the Large and the Monster was simply too big!

When looking at the following table, please keep in mind that all SquarePeg toys are individually handmade so the sizes can vary a bit (as I had to experience myself when I bought my large Acorn in Firm Black and I turned out 3mm smaller than the one in Supersoft Bronze…).

Size Overall Length Insertable Length Max. Diameter Max. Diameter Neck Available in Firm
S2 130mm 105mm 40mm 26mm Yes
S4 150mm 120mm 50mm 32mm Yes
S6 160mm 130mm 57mm 37mm Yes

XL 210mm 170mm 89mm 58mm No
Monster 245mm 195mm 95mm 62mm No

Detai of the Happy Hour’s Base

Being a SquarePeg toy, you already know the drill: Every Happy Hour Plug is made out of pure body-safe, easy to clean Platinum Silicone. Perfect if you have allergies or need a toy for an orgy which can easily and quickly cleaned. Either throw them in the dishwasher, autoclave them, use bleach or dish soap. Like all anal toys, store them in a ventilated place without touching other toys and without pressure. Otherwise different plasticizers can damage them or the pressure can create creases. To keep the silicone in best shape and not risk tarnishing the surface, do not use silicone lube with the Happy Hour. They are safe with every other kind of lube like oil- or water-based ones.

Detail of the Happy Hour’s Head

Playing with the Happy Hour

Before getting my hands or rather my hole onto the Happy Hour, I always considered the Acorn the most intense of the SquarePeg plugs (Splitter) but the Happy Hour is a close contender! The head usually pops in easily if you chose the right size. If you buy the Happy Hour for width training, the “dull” dome tip can already be a little challenge, so I recommend a bit of pre-stretching with an Egg. With the head in, you can twist and turn the toy for the ridge to massage the anus and stimulate the prostate. Pushing in further, the challenge starts. Yes, the taper to the maximum stretch is comfortable and the oval shape follows the ergonomics of the sphincter. But, depending on the bottom’s anatomy, two things can happen. Either, the deeper you go (especially on the larger size), the chances of the head knocking the second sphincter increase, forcing the bottom to concentrate relax when both holes are stimulated. If the second sphincter is not directly in the way, the head will bend pressed against the intestinal wall, filling the rectum with a lot of mass already – before the large body has completely entered the hole. Especially for tighter built guys there is now a dual-struggle: Taking the width and the volume. So for most of my testees the most intense sensation was not the pop of the plugs but the sudden feeling of fullness inside the rectum!

Detail of the Ridge for Massaging the Anus or the Prostate

Once inside, the fun starts with twisting and turning the plug. Since the small neck below the head is rather thick, it tries to erect itself again. So if through twisting it finds a softer space, it will extended again, massaging the intestinal wall. But also the prostate is in an exposed position. For most people the v-shaped groove is directly below the prostate. I leave it to your imagination what if feels like when the thick, little giving edges of the groove try to push the prostate away when twisting the plug.

Theoretically with the nice cone shape, the Happy Hour is a good to for stretch training. Actually, the oval and cone shaped maximum stretch very loosely resembles knots of anthropomorphic dildos. So it is a good toy to prepare your hole for this kind of dildo. But since the shape is so complex and stimulating in many ways, I recommend this toy only for loose and experienced hole. The rule of thumb developed by my testees is: When you can fit one size larger Egg plug comfortably, you are ready for the Happy Hour.

Where to buy?

When living in the USA, it is best to order from SquarePeg directly because you can get the toy in your desired color and firmness. The Happy Hour starts at $34 for the smallest version and goes up all the way to $159 for the Monster. In the EU, it is easiest to order from Regulation. The stock sizes from S to L in Supersoft Bronze, ranging from £69.99 to £128.99. Other sizes and colors can be ordered upon request.

Vendor: Topped Toys

Over the years, reader questions have become a quite reliable indicator of what could be the next hot thing in kink toys. Early this summer a rising tidal wave of messages about a new anal toy manufacturer called Topped Toys (back then still Mountie Toys) hit my inbox. They were so new and from distant Canada lands that I have never heard about them before – unlike dozends of my readers who were VERY eager to learn about the design, feel and quality of htis newcomer. So always trying to be on the vanguard of toy development and getting you the review for the toys you are most interested in, I got my hands on the two designs they started out with to investigate what all the – ex post well deserved – fuzz is all about.

Topped Toys Gape Keeper 100 & Chute 75

Construction

For this review I have gotten the Gape Keeper 100 and the Chute 75. The Gape Keeper comes along as a fairly middle of the road plug yet into the design a lot of thought has been put. With an overall length of 185mm, the main body has roughly egg shaped and 130mm long and is 80mm at the widest point. At the bottom it flows into a 35mm long neck with a diameter of 52mm which flows into a base with measured 105x77mm. The Chute 75 is just a little bit shorter at 165mm overall length but with a maximum diameter of 60mm considerably smaller. The neck is just a bit shorter at 30mm and smaller at 34mm diameter. The base measures 72x50mm. What sets the Chute apart from other toys if the notch with runs from the base’s bottom 120mm way into the main body. It is 30mm at it widest point and 10mm deep.

Both the Gape Keeper and the Cute come in a number of different sizes for every training level.

Over the course of the last couple of years, it became the standard for high-end anal toys to be made out of platinum silicone and Topped Toys does not disappoint in this regard. The advantages are just too many: 100% body safe, hypoallergenic and easy to clean (from hot dish soap water or bleach over the dish washer to autoclaving them everything is possible) makes them the perfect toy for using on multiple partners in a short time frame like in an orgy setting. For storage, keep them upright or lay them down without pressure, to avoid creases. Only store them together with other platinum silicone toys because plasticizers of other materials can disintegrate the silicone. The same can happen when using silicone lube. Silicone oil is deadly for silicone. Because of that ere at the side of caution and only use water- or oil-based lubes with Topped Toys.

Topped Toys chose a very soft silicone  (Shore 00-34) for their toys so it is nice and squishy. Colorwise there are two options: Blue Steel which in my opinion is a bit dull (and too close to the signature color of a British company…) and Forged Red, a marble of rich red and steel grey, forming a unique pattern for each toy. Forged Red has somewhat become they signature color and it is a nice pop of individual color in the sea of black colored anal toys.

Playing with the Gape Keeper & Chute

I have to be honest: When the first wave of reader questions hit, I was skeptical if the world needed yet another platinum silicon toy manufacturer, especially with (at the beginning) such a fairly standard and boring range – an opinion shared by many in my testee panel. But once we had gotten our hands and holes on the toys, the opinion changed quickly.

From the first look, the Gape Keeper is another well designed boring butt plug which would have a hard time winning real favors in a world where most of my friends (and probably many of my readers too), have more than one of iconic SquarePeg Egg in their playroom. But the devil is in the detail. It was designed by someone who REALLY knew the anatomy of the rectum. The tip of the head is just spikey enough to seduce a with increasing size more trained sphincter to open up yet dull enough to allow for an intriguing maximum diameter and thus rectum filling size without overstuffing. Because of that the Gape Keeper 100 is very comfortable to wear over extended periods of time, like in fisting breaks to keep the gape open. But the piece de resistance for this property lies in the neck shape and design. The convex flow mimics how the rectum turns into the anus for most people. The neck has the length of an average sphincter. The base is not too long so it rests comfortable also in smaller bubble butts. I love my SquarePeg Eggs (all three of them!), but the Gape Keeper 100 is just a completely different level of comfort when it comes to long-term wear. The neck nestles so comfortably and perfectly inside the anus, even when moving considerably a lot, there is almost no urge to take the plug out – despite the hefty weight of the larger sizes.

If you are more action orientated like me and do not really like to wear plugs over extended periods of time (because you are so loose, there is no need to a toy to keep your gaping hole open…), the Gape Keeper is also a great punching toy. For my personal taste, it could be a bit firmer to force the sphincter a bit more open. But this is complaining about first world problems. As already written, the larger the toy, the duller it gets, the more intense is much sought after stretch sensation when entering. By implication this means that the smaller sizes being less dull are good training toys to slowly train the butt to take larger diameters. From my experience over the years, I would say, the Gape Keeper 100 is a good fisting benchmark. If you can take that toy, you should be able to take a medium fist.

My panel’s experience with the Chute follows a slightly different story. Especially the guys who incorporate active fucking into their anal play session were instantly hooked on the notch. It is designed to add extra girth and thus tightness for the top and the bottom when fucking. The dick simply slides along the notch. Since the notch makes the neck relatively thin, the plug looses a bit of rigidness and a hard, throbbing dick can easily push the head to the side when it needs room inside the rectum. Going up a size to the Chute 85 will probably solve that problem. At first the sensation and the logistics take a bit to work out (I recommend to place the plug either left or right of the shaft instead of on top or bottom). But once you get the hang of it, it is a unique sensation that can challenge a bottom again who is well broken in already. A word of warning though: When you fuck vigorously, the relatively small base and soft silicone can become a problem. Three testeees managed to thrust the entire plug into the bottom’s ass.

Naturally, the Chute can also be used with a dildo for either increasing stretch of shielding part of the sphincter from the dildo’s texture, focusing it on others. But the Chute just by itself is also a fun toy. For stretch training it is not a perfect toy because the notch in the middle prevents a smooth flow in and out of the hole. But the notch is perfect for gently targeting the prostate. When twisting and turning inside the hole, it gently brushed and massages the prostate glans. The stimulation is not strong enough for a milking but can definitely enhance the anal play sensation repertoire.

Where to buy?

While Topped Toys is currently working hard to expand their dealer network also in the Old World, the easiest way to get one of their toys is through their website. The Chute costs between 45€ and 59€ depending on the size, while the Gape Keeper starts at 23,95€ and ends at 168,95€.

Construction

The basic design of the Double Pop are two slightly oval spheres staged onto of each other. 44mm is the maximum diameter of the spheres, the length about 50mm. Between the two the spheres flows smoothly into a neck with 19mm diameter. This is the same diameter of the 33mm long neck above the base which has a diameter of 44mm. The toy has an overall length of 151mm, an insertable length of 142mm and weights 333g.

The Medium Ballistic Metal Double Pop

The Double Pop comes in three sizes. I am reviewing the medium size; the small has a maximum diameter of approx. 38mm while the large one has approx. 50mm.

Since the Double Pop is milled out of a solid piece of aluminum, the toy is not only super smooth but also ultra low maintenance. You can use it with any kind of lube and your preferred cleaning method: The aluminum can withstand almost anything you can throw at it except a cleaning agent based on scratching (which you should not use in any toys!) or flash rust in the washing machine. For storage just make sure that it does not touch rubber or get deep scratches which can be extremely dangerous when inserting into the anus.

Playing with the Double Pop

The term “medium” for the medium size of the Double Pop is very appropriate because size-wise is come close to a (largish) average dick. Through the large ration between the maximum and minimum diameter of the spheres it perfectly triggers the stretch sensation which for many people start their journey towards fisting. The emphasis on opening up the hole makes it also the ideal training toy for people who want to progress from getting fucked to getting fisted. Slowing fucking your hole and getting it accustomed to the sensation of being opened up and closing again prepare the mind and the hole for the general sensation of a fist entering the hole and the sphincter closing again around the wrist – just on a much larger level.

Though when choosing the size, keep the material and shape in mind. When you can take a 4½cm dick, the medium Double Pop will still be a challenge for you. First, the material does not give in a bit. The solid firmness struggling against the sphincter can be a hot sensation to a certain extent, but don’t force the plug in too vigorously! Serious injuries can occur. Also the spheres are only slightly oval so the tip is duller than a penis. This means the sphincter needs to relax more in order to open up enough to take the toy.

For the not too experienced ass player, the Double Pop is a good toy for long-term wear. The smooth surface and flowing shape makes it comfortably to wear over extended periods of times. The weight of the metal leads to quite a bit of movement inside the rectum which if lucky can stimulate the prostate. If you are trained too much the same diameter of the base and the spheres become a problem. I would have wished for a larger, maybe oval base that still fits comfortable between the cheeks yet prevents from the toy from accidently slipping in. Also, a larger base would make for a more comfortable grip when fucking somebody or yourself with the plug.

For more trained bottoms, it is a good “tightening” plug: Simply place it into the fridge (Not the freezer! You do not want frostbite on your anus!) or in ice water until it cools down to just above 0°C and then insert it into the anus for the muscle the clench. This will make the hole nice and tight.

Besides anal play, the round shape makes it a perfect toy for sensation play. Let it travel over the sub’s body, let it roll over the body’s grooves through its weight, cool it (this time the freezer is allowed) for a goose-bump inducing sensation. I use the Double Pop after impact play when the skin is red and hot. Especially when a little bit abrasive toys like suede floggers or textured paddles have been used, the smoothness of the material and the cool tough increase the sub’s endorphin flow.

Where to buy?

Clonezone sells the small Double Pop for £65.99 and the large one for £85.99. I guess the medium one reviewed here would cost £75.99 and just is currently out of stock.
