Construction

It is surprising with toys from Mr Hankey’s: As soon as I post about the new toys on Twitter, I immediately get messages about the color combination! So let’s get this out of the way first: The Lampwick Uncut has a black core with lime green highlights. Since the black shines through the thin layer of line, you get this awesome cooper rust color. The Cyclops has the colors reversed with a lime green core and black highlights. Finally, the Beowolf has a yellow core and red highlights. These colors are an extra for $29.95. The look so bright because Mr Hankey only uses platinum silicone for their toys, a material that takes on color easily and which does not fade over time.

The Mr Hankey’s Toys Beowulf, Cyclops & Lampwick Uncut

Beside being perfect for (multi)colored toys, platinum silicone is 100% body safe, highly resistant towards acid and heat and with the super-smooth surface leave little possibilities for bacteria to linger and are easy to clean. I usually put my toys in hot water with dish soap and sanitize them afterwards for good measure. This is a quick and easy way to get the toys clean and sterile again between partners at a play party. But you can also throw them in the dishwasher or autoclave them. In order to keep the surface in this condition, never use silicone based or hybrid lube with silicone toys because they will disintegrate the surface. Water and oil based lube are safe to be used with silicone toys.

The Glans of the Lampwick Uncut

The toys from Mr Hankey’s Toys come in two firmness degrees. The firmer is called “Medium” which is about the firmness of a fully hard penis. If you enjoy texture like me, this is the one to pick, especially on veiny dildos like the Lampwick. The softer variety is called “75%”. 75% is popular with longer toys because they bend more easily around the bends in your colon. However, the softer the toy, the easier they collapse and the harder they are to ride. In the end it comes down to personal taste if you prefer your toys to force your sphincter open or to pop through. Mr Hankey’s offer custom firmnesses for $15.95 but I have never tried that. I would only recommend this if you have a large collection of anal toys already and can imagine how a toy will feel in a certain firmness! Because the larger the toy, the firmer it will feel! So be careful not to over- or in rare cases undershoot.

The Vac-U-Lock Hole on the Beowulf

An add on I always recommend is the Vac-U-Lock hole for just $4.95. 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.

The first dildo of this trio I am going to look it is the Lampwick Uncut. As the name already hints, it is a realistic dildo. It starts out with a dullish, foreskin covered glans. The foreskin forms a little crinkled seam on top of the glans, so I guess Mr. Lampwick has a little phimosis. Since the foreskin smoothes everything out, the drop around the glans rim is a bit softer than on the original model. The shaft features a few thick veins and a significant ventral groove before ending in two massive, realistic balls. But following the smoother-than-the-original theme, the shaft is less textured than the Lampwick.

Cyclop’s Ripled Body

Cyclops’ name is also a bit telling because the toy starts out with a sphere that could be identified as an eyeball. Especially when looking at the pupil like molding in the top. Below the sphere is a long shaft textued with bulges which again has a vein texture on top. The base like on other fantasy depth toys is a thick and sturdy disc.

The Beowolf is a complex toy. The point glans has a big, bulgey glans rim. The shaft is lightly textured with a small patch of shallow ridges on top and a few veins and a massive ventral groove on the bottom. The lower half of the shaft is a four-bulge knot before the dildo ends in a anthropomorphic base.

Lampwick’s Big Balls as its Base

Playing with the Lampwick Uncut, Cyclops & Beowulf

The Lampwick Uncut for some time was the most requested anal toy review because the original Lampwick is such a popular dildo! This was due to the combination of heavily texture shaft, deep glans drop and very attractive sizing for both beginners and anal sluts. The Lampwick Uncut is a different yet related game. First of all: It is bigger! The Uncut’s smallest size is almost as big as the original’s Medium. This means it also goes deeper. A whopping 6cm deeper than the longest original! This growth is compensated with a bit “tamer” features. The glans despite being dullish tapers more to it opens up the sphincter more easily. There is not bit, abrupt glans rim drop but a smoothish transition to the shaft. The shaft still has a few veins and a massive ventral groove but not as prominent as the original. So all in all, it is the easier toy to ride and twist inside the hole. It will still stimulate the anus and the prostate a bit but not nearly as much as the Original. This makes the Lampwick Uncut a good intermediate’s training toy. Even the smallest version is still big and long! But it’s smoother curves help opening up the first and second sphincter. Since the Lampwick Uncut has fewer deep texture, it is actually a toy I would recommend in getting in 75% firmness if you want to train your depth.

Cyclops on the other hand I would always recommend in Medium. Mine is Medium and it can barely stand up. But the ripples which texture its shaft makes it bendy, allowing to reach all the spots deep inside the colon. In 75% it would be very limb and hard to ride!

Cyclop’s Tip

Unlike the Lampwick Uncut it is not a toy for untrained fistees, especially when you want to go deep! The sphere on top is not made for gradually opening up the second hole! Especially not with the texture of the pupil. Even when your second sphincter is trained and pre-stretch, the pop of the eyeball is intense and made some of my testees shriek – out of surprise and ecstasy. But once inside the Cyclops quietly makes his way deep into your colon while the ripples and veins of the shaft massage both holes. This is pure bliss! The thick base makes Cyclops very rideable so you can enjoy the sphincter massage on your own. But it is best enjoyed relaxing in a sling, completely focusing on the texture making your sphincters open up and close again. If you can take a lot, advice your top to twist and turn the toy for the veins to laterally stimulate you and make you scream in all the best ways.

Beowulf’s Glans

Again, last but not least, the Beowulf is a special case. It is a surprisingly good training toy that can grow with you, especially in medium and large size. The pointy glans is good for opening up the anus and the prominent glans rim can with a bit of training stimulate both anus and prostate. The upper half of the shaft gradually bulges so is kind of good for width training (though never as good as a dedicated plug).

Beowulf’s Knot

Once you reach the knot, you have come to a pivotal point. Knotting this toy takes depth experience! I highly recommend pre-stretching depth with a dedicated toy! Because the pointy, bulgy glans penetrating the second sphincter is an intense experience on its own. But then there is the knotting of the bulgy knot! Yes, a testee who was very experienced with width, used the Beowulf to train depth. But that is a very singular experience. If you want to go deep, you better be prepared for a mind-blowing experience. Since the glans is already so rugged and the knot has four bulges, the Beowulf’s intensity can be increased when turned inside the hole. But that is most definitively not for the faint of heart or inexperienced when an intense stimulation can lead to a tensing up!

But in the end, all things considered, the Beowulf is one of my favorite toys for knotting while going deep!

Weredog’s Rutt & Skylar

In last year’s anal toy special I already reviewed Weredog’s Gage and liked it a lot. But the toys I am getting the most reader questions about are actually the Rutt followed by the Skylar. So let’s take a look at these toys.

Construction

To put it short, Rutt is a stylized version of a canine dick. Typical for this kind of dong, the glans is dullish with a little tip at the bottom. The shaft above the knot bulges a bit. The knot itself has three bulges instead the two a realistic one would have. Below the knot there is a short shaft before a hinted pocket and two balls form the base.

Skylar’s Softly Tapering Glans

The Skylar is quite different. His glans is softly tapering and features a shallow glans rim just like a human glans. The long shaft is concave but the top’s curvature is lower than the bottom’s. This way the shaft bulges in the middle. The bottom is textured with six scale-like ridges while the lower half of the top features increasingly deeper bumps. The body sits on a big light textured base.

All of Weredogs toys are made out of high quality platinum silicone meaning they are easy to clean and hypo-allergenic. It comes on 24 colors, 22 standard ones and two Glow in the Dark shades (green and blue) which adds 10% to the base price. Under daylight they look off-white but once it gets dark they have the brightest and longest glow of all Glow in the Dark toys I have seen so far! For 10€ you can add a second color either as a marble (as my two toys are), swirl and split base. Weredog also offers a Surprise Me option for 19.48€ but only do that if you are very adventurous! I have tried that option several times with several manufacturers and was unimpressed. If you invest such a large sum of money into your dream anal toy, at least make it right the way you want it.

Rutt & Skylar Glowing in the Dark

Firmness-wise Weredog is on the softer side of the spectrum. Their soft is Shore 00-37, the medium Shore 00-41 and the firm Shore 00-45. The Shore 00 scale and the Shore A-scale which for example Bad Dragon uses are hard to compare but the Bad Dragon medium firmness is about as firm as Weredog’s firm. While Weredog like all major companies offers sample discs to try out the firmness at home, I am not the biggest fan of them. The larger a toy, the firmer it feels and the less flexible it will be. So choose the firmness with a grain of salt. What you don’t have to chose because it comes standard with every toy is a nifty storage bag.

Playing with the Skylar & Rutt

As already written, both toys are hard to compare. Counter intuitively the Skylar is actually a good trainings and pre-stretching toy – at least in soft or medium firmness. The long, tapering glans opens up the sphincter(s) softly for an easy entry without much pre-stretch. Despite the thick shaft, inside the rectum it is bendy enough to find its way towards the second sphincter and thus train your hole for depth play. Meanwhile the scales gently massage the first (an depending on the size second!) sphincter for added stimulation. Due to the strong curvature it is almost impossible to get prostate stimulation out of the scales. For this, the bumps on the top are good yet they are so shallow

Skylar’s Ridges

If you buy Skylar in firm, he becomes a toy for the experienced. The ridges feel so much more intense, a testee called my firm XL a “horny cheese grater”. Using quite some force, Skylar’s tip can twist. But this too little for gentle training. He will rearrange your guts! So a welcoming second sphincter and slow insertion is paramount when playing with a larger firm Skylar. Once he is in and you really need it hard, it is a great toy to unleash upon your hole to really trash it!

Rutt’s Dull Glans

Rutt in any case requires training and pre-stretching! This starts with the dullish glans which forces the sphincter open instead of slowly opening it up. The barrel-like shaft is untextured but since the diameter in the middle is 34% larger than the glans a bit of a stretch. From the glans runs a small ventral groove that can add stimulation when twisted inside the hole.

Though if the shaft and ventral groove excites you, you are not nearly prepared for what comes next! Compare to other K9 inspired dildos, Rutt’s knot top is quite dull. So if your hole is not loose enough, it will not get in! The knotting is made even more intense but the third bulge on top of the shaft! All in all, the shaft-knot-ratio is an insane 1:2 which made the Rutt the favorite for knot fucking among some of my testees.

Rutt’s Three Buldges Knot

A great feat of Rutt is that his shaft is relatively short. This means even not so depth-savvy size queens can enjoy the Rutt. Speaking of size-queens, a drop of bitterness is the sizing range on Rutt: While the large one is a bit small for experienced players, the XL is so much larger than I know only few who can take him. A size between those would be great!

Where to buy?

You can buy all Weredog toys at their website where you can customize them. The Skylar starts at 75€, the Rutt at 85€.

My First Bad Dragon Toy

My First Ever Bad Dragon Order: Vergil the Drippy Dragon, David the Werewolf and Apollo the Chimera

Story time with ToyTorture…

Following a couple of tweets last week, I have gotten a very interesting reader question which I am going to answer in this blog post: Which was my first Bad Dragon toy? So let’s take down a trip memory lane when I still was a student…

In the summer of 2016 I had just handed in my M.A. thesis, was anxiously waiting for the results and equally anxiously searching for a job. But after a few stressful months (and a nerve-wrecking finish of my thesis…) I also took some time off for myself and to think about ToyTorture.com. Started at a time when passive anal sex was an afterthought for me. This little project was started as an alternative to the countless websites testing anal toys. It should be a resource on quality BDSM toys, the website I was looking for when I took my first timid steps into the scene over 15 years ago.

But kinksters are multi-perverse and as my readership grew, the ranger of reader questions broadened. So into the streams of questions about Mr S hoods and Fetters restraints one name appeared more and more often: Bad Dragon. To be honest, back then I knew little about anal toys and their quality. At best I have bought branded toys from Beglo Prism, at worst random stuff from China which shape looked promising. Miot of the toys I used to get fistable, I would shy away from nowadays and have banned from my playroom!

My Current Bad Dragon Collection (Moved Together) Minus the Toys Currently on Loan at Friends

After a few weeks my curiosity got the better of me and I investigated the matter thoroughly. To be frank, I first was shocked! Really weirdly shaped dildos, stories about (fantasy) creatures’ sex life, merch worthy of a rock band! Back then fantasy modus was default and only had very peripheral contact with the furry or puppy scene. But my testing for ToyTorture.com has always pushed me forward as a kinkster (impact play anyone?), I decided to take a not-so-deep dive and chose three toys which very much reflected my play style and mindset: Simple stretch, no depth play and a playroom has to be ALL black and steel! A Bordeaux or brown paddle already distracted my esthetic! What a long way I have come.

My David with how I would Probably Order Him Today

So this is what I ended up with: A large Virgil in firm, an XL David in medium and an XL medium Apollo, all in… let’s say sedate colors. When I opened the parcel, the inside was nicely wrapped in purple silk paper which hit the sealed plastic bags. From Oxballs toys I knew that silicone attracts dust like nothing else. When I opened these plastic bags, I was a bit shocked how big and voluminous the toys were! I still had to learn to infer size and dimensions from dimensions on a website and product description. So my first Bad Dragons became the first toys of which for the review I mostly relied on review experience of play partners and friends to whom I sent the toy. On all toys I could take the glans. The first toy I knotted was Apollo in end of October when I was trying to relief my moving stress. Virgil followed two years later and riding his knot gave my me first involuntary prostate orgasm. It took me until this spring to completely conquer David.

My Virgil aside the his Natural Color I would choose Today

Despite this difficult start, these three toys started a love affair which has not ended yet. When I thought about my second triple I moved to a new stage in my life, had a playroom and suddenly color came into play which sparked even more interest in the review. Suddenly people were interested in “my” color combination because they want to order it too! And they were interested in my opinion on other BD toys. It sometimes feels, the more of their toys I review, the more reader questions I get, all on toys I have not reviewed.

So, quo vadis Bad Dragon @ ToyTorture.com? Looking at the reader questions table I keep, currently most of you are interested in reviews of canine dongs. Having only recently tamed my second sphincter dog dildos have not really been on my agenda but I hear you and try to quench this thirst for reviews as soon as possible.

My Apollo with Oone in Green Dancer, a Color that my Collection still Lacks Despite Green being my Favorite Color

This is a good example of how the review requests differ from my personal taste.  If it way my hole deciding which toys to review next, it would be Kelvin and Glyph (and personally I’d love an XL Fenrir because the Large is already so drool-inducing). But it looks like that the next names on the Bad Dragon review board will be Austin, Rex and Roland.

To conclude this little tale, would I place the exact same order as I did over five years ago? Yes and no. One thing that has not change since these first batch of naughty wyrms is my taste for firm anal toys (though I have started to admit that then it comes to depth play, there is a place for softer, yet not too soft toys). But color-wise I would be more daring! David would come in his Signature, glow in t he dark pattern, for Virgil I would also go with Signature (well, since he sounds hot in XL, I might one day get him that way) and Apollo? Good question. His Signature is a bit wild, so I’d probably go one o f the many glow in the dark pattern Bad Dragon offers. But since there are still so many different shapes to explore, buying second versions of toys I already have in my collection is still way ahead.

Also, Bad Dragon is not the only toy company in my dungeon. At this period of time I was introduced to the SquarePegToys Acorn by a friend. But this is a story for another day.

Concluding this Year’s IDAHOBIT Greating with Colorful Dildos from Many Manufacturer

Humphrey

Form: Fantasy Toy
Material: Platinum Silicone
Colors: Whatever you can imagine
Firmness: Almost whatever you can imagine
Lube: Water, Oil
Cleaning: Soaking in warm 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: Organotoy

Construction

Humphrey starts out with a little bit dullish glans like on a realistic dildo. It even features an implied piss slit. The glans rim is already the maximal diameter of this toys.

The Organotoy Humphrey in Dark Rainbow

The slightly convex shaft has an about 10% smaller diameter. But it is textured with bumps all over. Left and right of the shaft run a small vein-like groove which separates the bottom with shallower bumps from the top with deeper bumps.

The base is thick and sturdy for an exceptional secure stand even when riding the dildo HARD! For an additional 10€ the base can be equipped with a vac-u-lock hole. This hole in combination with a vac-u-lock handle is a great addition when you want to fuck somebody lying in a sling in front of you because the big base is a bit cumbersome. Testees have reported that despite the weight my large Humphrey also works well on fuck machines so I am taking their word for it.

Humphrey’s Massive Base

Speaking of customization, this is of course the piece de resistance of Organotoy which are masters of turning platinum silicone into insertable fantasies. Firmnesswise, you can choose between an ultra squishy Shore 00-30 which will most likely not stand up almost metal firm A30 which will turn the bumps into a cheese grater. The same applies to colors which range from solid ones over fade and marble, mica effect colors with UV and Glow in the Dark capabilities up to custom airbrush designs. My large Humphrey has the color called “dark rainbow” which looks a bit like Tahiti pearls and I like it a lot!

Finally, Humphrey comes in four sizes.

Size Max. Head Diameter Insertable Lenght Overall Length
S 50mm 120mm 140mm
M 62mm 170mm 195mm
L 80mm 230mm 280mm
XL 110mm 300mm 370nn

The Dullish Glans

Playing with Humphrey

The Humphrey is not a beginner’s toy or a toy to begin a scene with. The bluntish glans makes the first penetration intense! A good pre-stretch is highly recommended to make the sphincter open up when this brute knocks on the door.

The is not much space below the glans rim so the sphincter cannot rest and get used to the stretch of the glans. If you are not careful the massive stretch transits directly onto the coarse shaft. Depending on the shaft firmness and the riding speed it is either a gentle message or an agonizing torment. But despite raising high they are rounded and smooth enough to never pose a injury threat, even when they are VERY firm. Because the bumps on the bottom are shallower than on the top, the most fun my testees and I had was when a top was controlling the Humphrey and twisted it inside the rectum. This way the top can decide of the prostate gets massaged with the easier or more challenging side.

The Deep Texture with the Ventral Groove

Due to the large and massive base this toy is also good for solo play. It will not move or topple down. The slight convex shaft presses the toy towards the prostate. With a bit of training you can learn how to maneuver the massive glans in the right direction to best apply pressure on the prostate for an intense stimulation. For this I would have wished for a larger gap between the glans and the shaft texture to really lock the toy in place and play with the ridge for stimulation purposes.

But this is only a minor point of criticism. The main event of the Humphrey is its textured shaft where it shines. A friend is considering getting it in split firmness with a softer glans to go in easier and a firmer shaft for more stimulation. Though be warned: Too firm bumps can turn your moans of ecstasy into quite different screams…

Where to buy?

Like all Organotoy products the Humphrey is sold exclusively at their website. Other the high degree of customization would not be possible. The price start at for a simple single color Small one at 29.96€ and the XL starts at 249.96€. Naturally depending on your color, firmness and accessory wishes the sky is the limit.

Feeling Knotty – Non-Anthro Toys with Bottom Bulges

The Topped Toy Hilt, the Oxalls Pig-Hole Morph XXL and the SquarePeg Happy Hour, three non-anthro knotted toy

This week instead of a review I want to answer a bunch of read questions I have been getting increasingly more often in the past few months: Where to get non-anthropomorphic knotted toys?

When I first noticed this kind of question getting more and more common I was actually surprised. In the past, most knot-related questions came from furries and other groups who were looking for the greatest amount of immersion when playing with knotted toys. But I guess the influx of anal aficionados which the Covid restrictions brought into the fisting scene (for which I might be partly responsible with my hugely successful Selfplay 101 series in spring 2020), also inspired people to play with their butt who are appalled by even the notion of sticking a dog or (Bad) dragon or whatsoever inspired dildo up their ass.

What are knots and why are they so popular?

Especially for the newcomers, innocent and ignorant, let’s briefly explain what a knot is. It is a zoological term and describes a swelling at the root of a canine’s penis. When the canine becomes increasingly aroused, this cavernous body massively increases in size. The reason for that is to connect the two mating parties (terminus technicus “to tie” them) to increase the likelihood of the semen finding an egg. Because of that all bulges at the bottom of toy’s shaft are commonly called “knot”.

For anal toys knots are hot because they target the two stimulation areas in the rectum which bring pleasure: The anus subjected to a stretching sensation and the prostate to which pressure is applied. Popping a knot through the sphincter can be a mindblowing and ecstatic experience (If you are pre-stretched enough. Otherwise it can lead to a visit to the ER and a life on incontinence). Riding a knot (vigorously) is one of the most common triggers for anal orgasms.

Comparing the Knot Profile of the Regular and the Big Kevin

Which “neutral” knotted toys are there?

Frankly, not many. For reasons too complex to get into now, the furry scene used to be the driving force in the development of high end anal toys and they expected as much immersion, ergo coming design-wise as close to the real deal as possible.  And most non-furry toy users did not care that a replica of a dog’s dick gave them pleasure. But there are some sourced – even though to be frank I am going to stretch the definition a bit to feature a wide range of possible toys here.

The biggest manufacturer for toys like these is SquarePegs. Scott, the founder and designer of the toys is not only a total ass pig but also trained sculptor. He knows how a toy needs to look like to stimulate the right spots! And being a modern sculptor he is not interested in an exact replica of the real world but in creating stunning, sweeping abstract sculptures that equally pleasure the eye and the ass.

Let’s start out with a toy I sadly have not yet had the pleasure of personally play with: The (Big) Kevin. This toy is a perfect representation of what I meant when Scott designs purposefully sculptures of the ass: A shaft the loosely looks like a realistic human dick (though with a bit dullish tip) features two spherical bulges at the bottom which probably give an intense knotting sensation. Like a canine toy the shaft-knot ratio is relatively high for the most intense possible stimulation when the knot pushes through the sphincter.

Detail of the Flowing yet Challenging Thick Elements of the Blunger

The Blunger has an entire shaft of hole stimulating bulges and ridges on its shaft but the big one at the bottom gives a HUGE impression. This is partly due to tip of it penetrating the second sphincter something this toy has in common with most bigger anthro toys that feature a knot. A good toy to prepare for this sensation is the Longneck Humped which gradually opens up the sensitive area where the colon becomes the rectum. The “knot” is more a ridge yet the stretch sensation and prostate pressure is not less intense.

The SquarePeg Poppers

If you have problems with deep play – like many ass player – the Happy Hour with its bulgey pin-shape is perfect for stimulating both sphincter and anus without going deep. With the small groove in the middle it even slightly simulates the division between the two sides of a real knot. Being a plug, it can be easily turned inside the hole for additional prostate pressure or max. stretch when turned perpendicular.

Another toy I have not yet played with or have heard opinions about but matches the criteria is the Popper though a bit inverted. The massive head prys open the sphincter while after a short rest comes the voluminous yet slightly smaller body. Riding both bubbles is probably quite hot but especially an advanced hole will find the bottom bulge anticlimactic.

Size comparison of the different Ergo Plug Sizes

When stretching the definition a bit further, the Acorn especially on the way out gives all the right stimulations of a knot. On the way in, there is just the little ridge above the rim which may look small but gives intense feelings when popping in.

While we are stretching the definitions, let’s turn to Oxballs. Their Ergo plug (aka the plug section of the probably world’s most popular pup play tail) is a case of Acorn. It looks innocent but slight kink in the middle of the body can do wonders to the prostate and anus in skilled hands. The ridge it creates both increases the pressure onto sphincter and is a grove to “milk” the prostate when caught inside the groove. Oxballs have been working on a larger Ergo Plug and I cannot wait to get that one and finally review this toy!

The Pig-Hole FF’s Barrel Size compared to the Size of the Pig-Hole XXL

A generally immensely popular and for this case very useful toy is the Pig-Hole. Available in sizes from “Novice” to “Crater Cunt” it is for every experience level. Lubing it up and sliding it over a dildo’s shaft can turn every plain, pillar like silicone dong into a knotted to. To be fair, especially the softer blue Morph silicone version can collapses more easily and the barrel can be compressed for a less intense knotting experience. To lessen the effect,  you can stack two Pig-Hole above each other. But you have to leave a size in between, s o you can pull a Large over a Small. To pull a Medium over a Small, the Medium has to be blue and you REALLY have to want it.

The Topped Toy Hilt 115

The last company to enter bring out a toy meeting my criteria is Topped Toys from Canada. Their Hilt features a MASSIVE knot. The flowing lines the three-dimensional shape the shaft leads to a relatively large shaft-knot ration if you look at the shaft right above the dullish knot. More than any SquarePeg toy the thickening at the bottom of Hilt’s shaft is stylized, brutish interpretation of a knot. The knotting is very intense and difficult to take. This is underlined by the size range Topped Toys offers.

These are to my knowledge the high quality silicone toys which create the effect of a knot without being (fantasy) animal inspired. But in the past years the toy market has become more and more dynamic and I might have overlooked a toy. So if you have found a toy I have missed, mail me! Though to be frank most manufacturer are targeting the anthro market so it is unlikely.

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.

Vendor: Topped Toys

After last week’s tweet I have gotten so many messages asking detail questions about the latest Topped Toys I have been testing, I decided to review the Spike today – despite my Spike 105 still being bringing a friend in Nuremberg much fun. For the Hilt I still need some more review experience. So please be patient for that review.

The Topped Toys Spike 105

Construction

Topped Toys launched their brand as a manufacturer of high quality and body safe platinum silicone toys. Especially the last part has to be stressed in these times! On the usual websites knock-offs are sold, which are also made out of platinum silicone but due to questionable raw material sources for the silicone and colors, are potentially dangerous! Only buying from Topped Toys directly or one of their authorized retailers guarantees that you get a 100% body safe, hypo allergenic toy with a super-smooth surface for easy cleaning and insertion.

At the moment Topped Toys only offers their toys only in one firmness, Shore 00-34. Colorwise you can choose between a medium blue or for a 10CAD premium Topped Toys signature color “Forge Red” which is a beautiful marble of red & black.

Size Diameter Base Diameter Neck Neck Length Max. Diameter Insertable Length Overall Length
70 72mm 35mm 21mm 56mm 220mm 261mm
90 91mm 43mm 26mm 71mm 284mm 330mm
105 108mm 50mm 30mm 84mm 325mm 375mm
125 130mm 60mm 36mm 101mm 370mm 426mm

Detail of the Spike’s Toothing

Playing with the Spike

The basic shape of the Spike is a very elongated cone but with a very interesting texture. On the one side there is a hard toothed pattern like on a saw with six teeth. The diameter gradual increases and then ends in a steepish drop before the diameter increases again. The opposite side is textured with band of horizontal bumps, starting below the first saw tooth and about as wide as it. While the texture is not deep enough to irritate a moderately trained anus, it definitely will be felt on the prostate and the second sphincter! Alternating which texture is targeting the prostate in combination with various riding speeds offers a wide range of different sensations! If you are playing with a partner or are very agile, twisting the Spike inside the hole can be a very hot experience!

Detail of the Bumps

The design is more for the more experienced player, both in depth and width. With a max diameter-insertable length ratio of about 1:4 your sphincter needs to be trained a bit and be pre-stretched to enjoy the overwhelmingly horny feeling when the Spike pops in! In order to take the Spike beyond the rectum, you need a sturdy training toys to desensitize the transition from rectum to colon. This body area is really sensitive and can easily tense up when stimulated/ stretched too intensely or forcefully. When this happens with the Spike, the first saw tooth deviates and you have to wait until the body area relaxes again for a second try. To train and desensitize the transition area, you need a toy to slowly (!) push through with the right and limited amount of force(!) without deviating.

Detail of the Spike’s Smooth Flanks and Topped Toys‘ new HD Texture

A really clever design feature is the plug-like neck design. But due to the diameter neck-max. diameter ratio of around 1:1.6 you can really keep the Spike inside and walk around. Especially with the Spike 105 and 125 this is a bit of the challenge because due to the weight you need a strong sphincter to keep it inside. But the Spike is also a good tool to train that. Feeling the soft silicone with all the texture inside your body move while you walk around is definitely one of the most interesting sensations I ever had with a toy!

While the circular base is wide and thick enough to give the Spike a firm and sturdy stand, I sometimes would have wished for a suction base option. Since the Spike will most likely not be your starting toy in a session, there will probably already be loads of lube scattered on your hand and in the play area. While lube at undesired spots is always a problem, for example the thicker base of a MHT Centaur provides more stability in these situations compared to the Spike’s very flexible base.

In order to take a toy deep, especially when playing on your own, there are two ways which allow for your rectum and colon to relax the most: Either ride it kneeling or attach it to a wall crawl towards it. For the latter you need a strong suction cup or vac-u-lock hole. There are ways to compensate with tension straps and o-rings but that is no solution for a quick round of plug&play. To be fair: Almost all designated depth toys I know do not have a suction cup and/ or a vac-u-lock hole! So with the large base, the Spike is one of the better in that category. If it just was a bit thicker.

Detail of the Plug-Like Base

All things considered, the Spike is a great toy for the experienced player! Actually so good, that almost all testees bought one for themselves, something that very rarely happens.

Where to buy?

Topped Toys sells the Spike directly for between 85CAD and 325CAD, 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.
