ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer II – Paddle Daddy Toys

Paddel Daddy Bubinga Rubber Thread Paddle

When I started ToyTorture.com over seven years ago, I wanted to show the world that there are many other small shops, brands and manufacturers out there than just the big boys everybody thinks about when they hear “kink toys”. These small businesses which do not need to rely on scale effects are often driving the development of new toys through their creativity and niche customer base. One of these stores is Paddle Daddy.

I met the owner and founder Al at my first Inferno in 2014. Back then I was a student and could not afford any his great toys – an error I corrected three years later and the two toys I have bought back then are still some my favorite impact implements. When I reached out to Al after this year’s Inferno to order a toy which was no longer on his website, I learned that he is about to retire in a couple of months. So if he can’t find somebody to take over his business, some time in 2020 the last ever Paddle Daddy toys will be made.

Paddle Daddy Bubinga Handle Leather Strap

Over the course of the five years since I have been introduced to his toys, I have experienced many of his toys – mostly as a sub but some as a top. The quality it top notch, the design superior. You can really tell that they have been created and crafted by a person who really understands the ergonomics of impact play. Usually on the severe end of the sensation range, a skilled impact top can still elicit a wide range from thud to sting from most of them. So I urge every impact aficionado to add one of these great toys to their collection while they are still out there. Paddle Daddy is most known for his wooden toys, but if like it heavy, the unbreakable bulletproof ones should catch your eye.

He has stopped selling directly years ago, but you can find his products at some well-assorted BDSM stores like Clonezone in the UK.

Ballistic Metal Double Pop

Form: Butt Plug
Material: Aluminum
Firmness: Firm
Lube: All
Cleaning: Soaking in hot water with dish-soap than use sanitizer.
Safer Sex: Clean and sanitize it thoroughly
Storage: Protect from scratches, material can damage rubber

Vendor: Clonezone

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.

Construction

The Latin Lover is a realistic dildo with balls and a small base. Inside this base is a hole for a Vac-U-Lock adapter. For this review, Clonezone sent me the size S out of the 4 possible ones. The dildo has a maximum diameter of 60mm just at the glans’ rim and 52mm just above the balls. The usable length (unlike you can and want to take the balls) is 162mm and the overall length a handy 215mm.

The Mr Hankey Toys Latin Lover

Like all Mr Hankey toys, the Latin Lover is made out of platinum silicone. The “platinum” in the name refers to the catalyst used to cure the silicone. Unlike other metals used like tin which is often used for cheap silicone, platinum is hypoallergenic and doesn’t cause adverse effect inside the body. But platinum is not only hypo-allergenic but it makes the silicone resistant towards heat and acid and the surface super-smooth. Because of that, the Latin Lover is easy to clean: You can throw it into hot water, add acid for sanitizing or autoclave it. Due to being so easy to clean and sanitize, platinum silicone toys are perfect for playing with multiple partners in a safe way. Just quickly yet thoroughly clean and sanitize them between deployments and you are ready to go again.

Detail of the Vac-U-Lock Hole in the Base

The Latin Lover falls in the category of a realistic dildo. It starts out with a glans which is molded with great attention to detail. Even the meatus is recreated. Below the rim of the cut head there is a little groove until the shaft begins. From the frenulum a very prominent ventral groove dominates the backside of the dildo almost all the way down to the balls. The entire shaft is covered with subtle veins and small ridges just like skin stretching over the cavernous bodies. At the bottom of the shaft, there is a pair of medium size and somewhat tight balls. It looks like the dick and the balls are a bit tied up because there is a thin ridge running around the shaft base, the balls and the penis root.

Playing with the Latin Lover

To be blunt: At first sight the Latin Lover is a standard, middle of the road realistic dildo a bit on the larger size due to the 60mm diameter on the tip. But with a bit of training, loads of lube and maybe a plug for pre-stretching, the soft, forgiving material will make an insertion pleasurable. So the Latin Lover is ideal when you want to fuck yourself or pleasure a partner – especially through the Vac-U-Lock hole at the bottom. The balls are very decently sized for a firm grip but especially for piston style fucking or self-play, getting a grip with a Vac-U-Lock adapter makes handling of the dildo easier. For riding it, I highly recommend a suction cup with such an adapter. Naturally, this feature predestine the Latin Lover for all people into strap-on play.

Detail of the Realistic Glans

So much for the boring part. Now why pay a relatively high price for a kind of toy which can be purchased for a fraction of the price? It is all in the details. The high quality material is not only easy to clean but in combination with the painstaking attention to detail of the shaft design, the Latin Lover is almost indistinguishable from a real dick. If before play you let it soak in a bit of warm water, it will take on the temperature and feel even more like a human dick.

Detail of the Ventral Groove

But this website would not be ToyTorture.com if the Latin Lover would not have a little kinky trick up its sleeve: The ventral groove. This ridge is way thicker and broader than on a “normal” human dick. Then you twist and turn the Latin Lover while fucking a hole, it intensely massage the sphincter and seducing it to open up for larger toys. This effect is the greatest when the sphincter is around the middle of the shaft targets because the ridge is the highest there. This elevation also focuses the friction sensation and the pressure on the ridge a bit. A skilled prostate milking top in my testee panel noticed that with a bit of targeting practice he could fuck a prostate orgasm out of his subs using the ventral groove.

Where to buy?

The Latin Lover can be bought at Clonezone for £125.99 for the size S featured in this review up to £215.99 for the whopping XL.
