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.

Construction

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

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

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

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

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

Detail of the Vac-u-Loch Holes

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

Detail of Thor’s Hammer’s Veine Texture

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

The Dullish Glans of Chorizo ’n Eggs

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

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

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

Thor’s Hammer’s Cone-Shaped Glans

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

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

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

Where to buy?

Mr Hankey sells their toys directly through their website. This is the best way to get them when you want to customize them even further. They also run promotions on a regular basis so check their page regular to snatch a bargain. The Thor’s Hammer starts at $159.95 depending on how many extras you add, the Chorizo n’ Eggs starts at $124.95 and goes up all the way to $228.95 + extras.v

Best for Self Play – Anal Toys

The Mr Hankey Dragon and XXXCalibur

In the past few weeks I have been getting an increasing amount of questions and messages which toys are best for self play. So this little series of guides should help you navigate my many toy reviews and help you get safe, sane and sexually satisfied through these times. I try to update this little series so if you don’t follow me on Twitter, check tomorrow evening for the next installment.

Surprisingly, the most questions I have gotten followed along the line: “I can’t see my long distance relationship partner/ play mates/ fuck buddies anymore and I haven’t used my dildos in years. Any idea for a good dildo?”

Left SquarePeg Leo 2X, Right Mel 2X

If you are looking for a realistic dildo, one of my favorite toys of all of 2019 was the SquarePeg Mel because of the many different ridges around the shaft. However, they only make realistic dildos in their signature Supersoft silicone. And if you are a texture junkie like me who want to feel every vein, that might not be enough. For this, take a look at Mr Hankey’s Toys who make toys in soft and medium varieties and if that is not enough offer custom firmness. When it comes to realistic dildos, they are have a wide range from porn star dongs over John Doe dick to uncut underwear anacondas. Both companies are offering Vac-U-Lock holes for their dildos so you can attach them to fuck machines or other nifty accessories for self play.

Topped Toys Gape Keeper 100 & Chute 75

Apparently many of you are using their time at home to stretch and train their hole. Hands down the best toy for that is the SquarePeg Egg. It opens the hole smoothly both on the way in and on the way out. The Topped Toys Gape Keeper does the same job, however, they only offer their toys in soft silicone while SquarePeg also offers a firm version. Personally, I prefer firmer toys for stretching but maybe these times are the perfect opportunity to find out your preference. What both toys are great for are long-term wear.

The Organotoy Eggs from Small to XXL

For really LONG term wear and some fun when moving out and about, take a look at the OrganoToy Eggs. They are designed to be swallowed completely, giving you a nice sense of fullness and stimulate the sensitive nerve endings inside your rectum. If you want to wear them over extended periods of time, especially the smaller ones, please get a version with the pullout chain or rope to get them out securely even when they start to wonder up your colon. Another nifty feature of the pulling out is the prostate stimulation.

Vergil the Drippy Dragon as a Representation of Bad Dragon’s „Glans and a Knot“-Dildo Design ontop of an Anthropomorphic Base

This segways directly into the last category of this short overview: Prostate stimulation toys. I have to preferred prostate toy: First Bad Dragon’s Vergil the Drippy Dragon. The shape of head and body are PERFECTY for targeting my prostate and I have gotten countless anal and prostate orgasms from it. The other is the SquarePeg Acorn. The small, innocent looking ridge around the rim seems small but in the right hands and position will drive you nuts. And I am sure you now have enough time to find that perfect spot for you. And yes, of course there is the OrganoToys SAW for prostate milking. It is one of the most bizarre toys I have come across in my eight years of reviewing kinky sex toys. If you want something unusual and want to support a small, independent toy maker, give it a try.

Tomorrow I will take the look at E-Sim toys to pleasure yourself.

The Mr Hankey Plumber, BFG and Centaur

Construction

The Centaur is probably one of the kinds of anal toys I get asked most about: What is a good horse dick to train depth? I do not why people are so interested in that but I am here not to judge but to quench your horny thirst for answers. If the Centaur is THE best, I cannot tell. It is certainly the most realistic on the market. It starts out with a dome-shaped glans that allows for a slow and soft opening of the first and the second sphincter. The glans rim is textured with little bumps. The heavily though not deeply textured shaft then very gradually and softly increase in diameter until it reaches the preputial ring. That is a sudden increase in depth, 2/3 down the shaft which adds a lot of girth until it ends at a round, solid base.

Detail of Centaur’s Glans

The Plumber sits on the complete opposite of the toy length spectrum. It starts out with a large and massive natural cut glans. Below the glans rim is a massive, only slightly sloped drop. What follows is a short, almost cylindrical, slightly concave shaft that is textured with wide and thus soft yet deep ridges. At the end, there is again a round, solid base.

The third of the reviewed toys could almost be the synthesis of the previous two. The BFG’s tip is a nicely tapered almost realistic glans with bumps all around the rim. Starting from the frenulum are soft and size increasing scales running all the way down to the base. On the other side of the shaft are soft, flowing bumps. For the increase in diameter make three big bulges on the sides, the last one large and round enough to be considered an anthropomorphic knot, flanked by a cluster of bumps on each side. Below that knot there is only a short resting space until the toys flows into a round base.

Toy Size Diameter Glans Rim Diameter Shaft Middle Diameter Above Base/ at Knot Insertable Length
Centaur Small 44mm 47mm 69mm 248mm
Medium 53mm 55mm 77mm 279mm

Large 53mm 67mm 85mm 279mm
XL 59mm 71mm 97mm 305mm

Detail of the Cenatur’s Vac-U-Hole

Mr Hankey manufactures all their toys out of high quality platinum silicone. Platinum silicone is a premium, more expensive material than other kinds of silicone which for example use tin as a catalyst to cure the silicone. This means all Mr Hankey toys are 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.

Silicone is a material that can be colored easily and which color does not fade over time. As standard colors Mr Hankey’s only offers their dildos in black, natural tan or deep brown. However, for $29.95 you can get custom coloring, mostly duo-tone fades like I got on the Cenataur and BFG but other designs are possible. It is a bit of an investment but since these toys are cheap, I recommend customizing them for this small fee because they turn out gorgeous and make your toy a bit of your own! If you need inspiration, browse Mr Hankey’s Twitter feed.

Detail of BFG’s Bumps & Bulges

Firmness-wise you also get only two choice. First there is Medium which is a bit firmer, about the firmness of a rock-hard dick. If you are a texture junkie like me, you definitely want to go this way because it makes every ridge and vein very noticeable! BUT for depth it can be too firm since it also impacts the bendiness. Because of that for larger sizes of the Centaur and the BFG I recommend their 75% firmness which is a bit softer. Mr Hankey’s Toys does offer custom firmness if you want the toys smoother or firmer. I have not tried that service but I would only recommend it for their fantasy toys. For only $4.95 a Vac-U-Loc hole can be added to every toy. Originally designed to attach the toy to fuck machines, there are a number of nifty accessories out there for this kind of system: Handles, Strap-On harnesses, suction cups and double-dildo connectors. Because of this I highly recommend adding this inexpensive feature to your toy. There are just too many useful scenarios along the way to go cheap on this one.

Detail of Plumber’s Large Glans Rim Drop

Playing with the Centaur, Plumber and BFG

Trying to answer the question from the beginning of the review: If you are looking for a pure depth training toy, the Centaur is probably not the best option to go to. But is has many characteristics that makes it a great overall toy to explore and train depth. As already written, the glans is perfectly shaped to open up both sphincters. However, the texturing of the rim make taking the second sphincter a more intense experience than it could be. As you get more experienced and relaxed, twisting the Centaur’s head inside one of the sphincters is an intense yet tantalizing experience. The same accounts for riding the shaft: Since there is no untextured space, it takes a lot of lube and some experience riding it. But again, the texture is very subtle and the steady increase in diameter means, as you loosen up and slide down on it, there simulation continues in the same intensity. Expect of course for the preputial ring. This sudden increase in diameter can be a challenge, especially on the larger sizes because you usually focus on processing the intense feelings deep inside your colon and are not prepared to relax you anus so abruptly. However, again, as you train and get used to the toy’s characteristics, the preputial ring becomes a hot feature. Riding up and down the toy, you are alternating stimulating your first sphincter with the preputial ring or the second sphincter with the glans rim.

Detail of the Centaur’s Subtle Texture and Massive Preputial Ring

Speaking of riding the shaft: Handling-wise the Centaur is a good toy for depth play. The length-girth ration in combination with the thick solid base is keeping the toy from collapsing, making it perfect for riding and inserting it in a controlled manner.

If you try to apply the Centaur’s question to the Plumber, the answer is: Hell no! It is not a toy for the novice. While the realistic glans opens you up somewhat softly, if your hole is not used to opening up and release a plug, taking the Plumber out will the a ripping experience! The same accounts for riding the shaft. While the ridges are flowing and soft, especially in medium the are stimulating the many nerve endings inside the anus HARD. So it is definitely a toy for the experienced, loose and greedy hole which needs a challenge and rough treatment at the end of a fisting scene.

Detail of Plumber’s heavily Textured Shaft

As already written in the construction section, the BFG is the synthesis of both toys: Easy to insert, hard to master. I have gotten my Medium/ Large in Medium firmness which might has been a mistake. Yes, feeling the firmness of the bumps and ridges massage the sphincter as you slide down on the shaft, is very horny and intense. But through the heavily convex shape, the rigidity of the material makes it a bit hard to find the way towards the second sphincter. Though once inside, the deep yet not too complex texture and shape makes it a joy to ride. Unlike other fantasy toys, you are not overwhelmed with texture but can enjoy each and every bit separately. While the increase in diameter of each of the major bulges on the shaft’s side somewhat prepare you for the stretch of the following one, due to the texture it is not a training or warm-up toy! If you want to indulge into the BFG completely, I recommend preparing and relaxing your hole with toys that go a little deeper and stretch a little wider than the BFG you have chosen. Then this great toy can unleash its full potential.

Vendor: Mr Hankey’s

After the Anal Toy Special this spring, I have gotten over a hundred messages from you, complaining that I never talk about realistic dildos. Since I always try to satisfy your thirst, I reached out to one of the best realistic dildo makers on the planet to give you this threesome review.

Construction

Like all toys in this anal toy special, Mr Hankey manufactures its toy out of platinum silicone. Platinum silicone is a premium, more expensive material than other kinds of silicone which for example use tin as a catalyst to cure the silicone. This means all Mr Hankey toys are 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.

From Left to Right: The Mr Hankey’s Toys Nick Capra, Lampwick & El Ray

Silicone is a material that can be colored easily and which color does not fade over time. As standard colors Mr Hankey’s only offers their dildos in black, natural tan or deep brown. However, for $29.95 you can get custom coloring, mostly duo-tone fades like I got on my Nick Capra and Lampwick but other designs are possible. It is a bit of an investment but since these toys are cheap, I recommend customizing them for this small fee because they turn out gorgeous and make your toy a bit of your own! If you need inspiration, browse Mr Hankey’s Twitter feed.

Firmness-wise you also get only two choice. First there is Medium which is a bit firmer, about the firmness of a rock-hard dick. If you are a texture junkie like me, you definitely want to go this way because it makes every ridge and vein very noticeable! 75% firmness is a bit softer. It turns the texture into tantalizing massage spots and thus is more recommended for the novice. A word of advice though: Especially on longer and thinner toys, 75% firmness can be a bit too soft so the toy can collapse when riding it. Mr Hankey’s Toys does offer custom firmness if you want the toys smoother or firmer. I have not tried that service but I would only recommend it for their fantasy toys. In my testee panel none wished for firmer or softer option than the two available on realistic dildos. For only $4.95 a Vac-U-Loc hole can be added to every toy. Originally designed to attach the toy to fuck machines, there are a number of nifty accessories out there for this kind of system: Handles, Strap-On harnesses, suction cups and double-dildo connectors. Because of this I highly recommend adding this inexpensive feature to your toy. There are just too many useful scenarios along the way to go cheap on this one.

Detail of the Nick Capra’s Base with a Vac-U-Lock Hole and the Link to his OnlyFans’s Page. Future Generations will Wonder what this will have meant…

As already said in the introduction, all three toys in this review are realistic toys. The closest to this definition comes the Nick Capra which was cast off the life dick of the porn star. It starts out with a very prominent yet nicely tapered glans which has a very prominent rim with a steep drop below. The shaft is very unevenly textured: Almost no veins on top and some very subtle ones on the back. After the glans drop the shaft tappers gradually towards the balls.

The Lampwick starts out very similar with a nicely shaped glans for easy entry and a very distinct drop below the rim. This is where the similarities start: The shaft is heavily textured with veins and a thick ventral groove but in exchange does not noticeable increase in diameter. In relation to the diameter, the Lampwick is a very long toy, almost prone towards depth play in 75% Firmness (as a texture junkie I of course chose Medium firmness ;)). The balls merge into a solid and thick base.

Detail of the El Ray’s Glans

The final member of this ménage à trios is called El Ray and it is the only uncut guy of this bunch. Finally an uncut realistic dildo! Being uncut myself and favoring uncut dicks with my play partners, I love seeing this feature on a dildo. Naturally this makes the tip of the dick a bit more challenging. The rock hard, straight up shaft has caused the foreskin to retract a bit, exposing about a third of the glans which could make for an easy insertion – if there wasn’t the small, steep rim of the foreskin as a first bump. Once you have taken that, there is the glans rim. Being covered by foreskin, the drop is smoother than on the other two but the bump is thicker. Below the glans the shaft diameter increases gradually to reach is maximum diameter at about a third of the shaft and then tappers softly towards the round base.

Detail of Nick Capra’s Softly Tappering Shaft

Playing with the Nick Capra, Lampwick & El Ray

Let’s start out with the Nick Capra, because ever since I posted the first pic of this toy on my Twitter feed, I have gotten the most questions about this dildo. Maybe because of his large fan base… As already written above the glans is easy to take with a sudden drop. Especially in medium firmness and for the novice this might come as a surprise and will make taking out the toy after you have come a bit of a challenge. For the more seasons anal player, the ridge on top of the glans rim is perfect for massaging the sphincter and with a bit of practice to stimulate the prostate.

The glans’ cliff should not discourage the novices among you because the shaft is actually ideal for girth training. The increase in diameter is so gradual and smooth that in combination with the subtle texturing and the lack of a noticeable ventral groove the stretch is almost the only sensation felt when riding the Nick Capra. The low-hanging balls are also realistically sculptured. Though they are a bit soft and through the thin neck give in easily, they are good to hold onto for solo play if you chose not to get the Vac-U-Lock hole with a handle.

Detail of the Lampick’s Heavy Texture and Thick Base

While the Nick Capra is a good toy for stretch beginners, especially the ones who want to get into sphincter and prostate play, the Lampwick is made for loose holes. Even if the diameter fits on paper with  a plug, the thick veins make taking this toys a bit of a struggle which the stimulation of the sphincter can have ecstatic effects. Slowly ride the toy to massage the sphincter and in the right angle the prostate, twist it for the deep ventral groove to target the prostate or piston fuck the bottom’s hole to torment and tire it out. I had the opportunity to play with a friend’s 75% firmness LG/XL and directly compare it to mine. And yes, the heavy texture is felt less intensely. But if you can just barely fit the maximum diameter, it still will be an uncomfortable ride. But if you are into extreme stimulation of the many nerve endings inside the anus like I am, take a look at the Lampwick in Medium!

One of my testees is really experienced in depth play (and he has a favorable anatomy). He was able to take the Lampwick completely with a lot of lube and a lot of poppers. He said that the pop of the glans through his second sphincter was probably one of the most intense experiences he ever had and twisting the rugged shaft inside his two sphincters lead to noises I have never heard from him. As demonstrate, it is possible to take a Medium firmness Lampwick deep, I advise even more caution than with usual depth play and would actually say, if you want to take this dildo deep, go for the 75% firmness option.

The Three Standard Color Options: Natuarl Tan, Deep Brown and Black

Due to the thick and wide base into which the balls flow, the Lampwick has a very good sturdiness. Even when riding it vigorously on your own, none of my testess had problems with the base slipping away. The base is also big and grippy enough, to allow for a top to hold and control the dildo comfortably when fucking a bottom with it. It only falls short when you want to fuck yourself with it. It is a bit cumbersome for that; I recommend a Vac-U-Lock handle in that szenario.

Last but definitely not least of this happy bunch is the El Ray. This toy was reason to much discussion in my testee panel. We all like the El Ray. The shape with the maximum diameter fairly far up at the shaft makes for an interesting experience: Once conquered, the toys is getting sucked into the ass. Usually when taking a toy out, it is getting easier the further out it goes. But with the El Ray, the diameter increases again, before you can rest. This is a very interesting and mind fucking experience.  The diameter increase is so gradual and smooth that in combination with the almost untextured surface it just feels not like a normal dildo. You cannot pinpoint it, it is just reverse and that makes it hot – especially when you are into the stretch sensations.

Detail of El Ray’s Relatively Smooth Shaft with the Maximum Diameter at the First Third of it

This very subtle increase in diameter at the top half of a dildo makes it also a good training toy for girth training. It gently massages the hole loose and open over time without have to go too deep. BUT: The glans with the foreskin half pulled over makes the initial taking of the dildo challenging for novices. Ever the experienced holes in my testee panel needed some prestretching and loosening up before the El Ray could easily enter. After this point, the gentle ridges the foreskin  created nicely massage the anus. But getting there takes some prep work. So since even the smaller sizes of the El Ray are already on the larger end of the experience spectrum, it is a toy for the more experienced anal pig.

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

Vendor: Clonezone

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.

Detail of the Veiny Texture of the Shaft

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.

Vendor: Mr Hankey

Construction

The basis of all Mr Hankey toys is platinum silicone which refers to the catalyst to cure 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. Other welcome effects of using a noble material like platinum is a high resistance towards acid and heat. This properties in combination of the silicone’s super-smooth surface makes these toys very easy to clean: Either put them in hot water with an acid cleaner or even auto-clave them. Being sanitized so easily, these toys are ideal when playing with multiple partners in a safe way because they can be quickly sterilized between scenes. As always with silicone toys, never use them with silicone lube because the silicone oils inside the lube can damage the toy.

The Mr Hankey Butt Bolt, Solatok & Prince Charming

There are two firmness degrees to choose from: Medium and 75% firm. As the name already states, the medium is not solid but has a considerable give yet makes the texture very noticeable. The 75% firm is soft and squishy which is a good texture for riding heavily textured toys hard without injury risk. You can order a custom firmness but the ones offered are actually ideal: Go any smoother, and the dildo could collapse, go harder an when playing roughly, there is a chance of hurting yourself.

Detail of the Vac-U-Lock Hole

The off-the-rack colors offered by Mr Hankey depend on the toy, but are rather dull and standard. I highly recommend investing the extra $29.95 for a custom color like I did on mine. For the Solatok I chose a dark blue highlights over a light blue base color, making it look a bit like Sam the Eagle. My Prince Charming is black base with green highlights giving it an alien, almost Zerg like appeal. Finally my Butt Bolt is a black and red marble, which cause some irritations with me: After an intense solo play scene, I cleaned my toys still being high on endorphins. When I washed the Butt Bolt I was briefly shocked if I severely injured my butt with all the dark blood covering the toy – until I realized it was just the toy’s color. All Mr Hankey dildos can be equipped with a Vac-U-Lock hole for $24.95 which makes sense for dildo-shaped anal toys, especially when you have a fuck machine.

The Prince Charming

All three toys have very distinct shapes and textures. The Butt Bolt’s body loosely resembles a cola can with a four-ridge thread around the body. The lower quarter of the body is smooth and tapers into a short neck which flows into a thick hexagonal base. Solatok has an equally dull tip with a noticeable “glans” rim which tapers into an only slightly thinner shaft. The front of the shaft is textured with four deep, scale-like ridges. The upper two thirds of the sides and back shaft is lightly textured by subtle vain-like ridges until it widens at the lower third to a thick knot.

The most extravagant toy of the three is without a doubt the Prince Charming. The basic shape of the tip is like a human’s glans but the surface is covered with small bumps and the glans rim with larger ones. Below the rim there is a significant drop in diameter. The shaft then widens again to about double the rim’s diameter. The shaft’s upper two thirds is textured with thick and deep humps and knots which are softened in the lower third by a cover.

Toy Size Overall Length Insertable Length Glans Rim Diameter Max Diameter
Butt Bolt Small 127mm 95mm 49mm 59mm

Large 248mm 222mm 72mm 97mm
XXLarge 305mm 276mm 89mm 121mm

The Butt Bolt

Playing with the Butt Bolt, Solatok & Prince Charming

All three toys even – even the small sizes – are not for the novice who can just barely take the minimum diameter of the glans rim. They are designed for well-stretched, loose sphincter which just needs a delightfully mean texture to tire out the hole at the end of a scene and scratch the unsoothable itch.

Each toy is interesting in its own way. The dull tip of the Butt Bolt makes it a challenge to insert. Once inside, the ridges of the threat massage/ scratch the delicate nerve endings inside the sphincter. My Butt Bolt is a LG/XL made out of 75% Firm silicone so the ridges easily flap but still a hard punch-fucking will make even experienced fistees squirm quickly. I cannot even imagine how a much meaner a firmer one will be. Since it is rather compact in size and the max-neck-diameter ratio is relatively high, the plug can stay inside the ass for extended periods of time, like a break inside the sling. For walking around, the base is too big and has too many edges. During this break, the sphincter will tighten again, making the pulling out even more agonizing.

The Solatok

The Solatok (ab)users “suffer” from the same challenge as the Butt Bolt: The dull tip. Once inside the ass, it is an interesting toy to play with. Since the upper part of the shaft is basically ¾ untextured and one quarter heavily textured, the sensation while riding or fucking Solatok can be precisely focused. For a more broader stimulation, twist the toy inside the sphincter and use the scales’ rim. Going a little bit deeper, Solatok’s massive knot will be a challenge for almost every anus. The knot increases in diameter quickly and steeply. While it tapers towards the base again, there is almost no space above the base, leaving little chance to relax when fucking with the dildo all the way.

The „Cover“ over Prince Charming’s Texture on the Lower Third of the Shaft

Finally, Prince Charming is almost two toys in one. First, there is the glans covered with bumps. While they make it hard to take and make an extraordinarily large amount of lube necessary, the glans with the big diameter drop below it is almost like a small, heavily textured toy. It is the ideal toy to tease inside the sphincter, especially when twisting it once inside. The shaft’s texture is a (w)hole different category. The wide, cone-shaped taper adds the quickly increasing diameter to the challenge of the heavily, knot-like humps and bumps. Again, either sliding over them or twisting the shaft inside the hole will give the heavies stimulation. But especially when attaching it to a fucking machine with the bottom bound so he cannot escape forward, is a unique, if not done with great care also dangerous struggling stretch sensation. Use with care!

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer VI –Mr Hankey Textured Plugs

You – my readers – have a weird relationship with anthropomorphic anal toys: The more I review them, the thirstier you become for more info. So as soon as I published the review of the Dragon and XXXCalibur from Mr Hankey I got inundated with review requests for their other toys. This little piece is basically a shortlist of the most requested models:

Prince Charming: The heavily textured head with a large rim in combination with the knotty shaft promise fun somewhere between agony and ecstasy.

Solatok: Less a plug, more a dildo it seems ideal for fucking. The scales on the back will torment the prostate while the large knot will bust the sphincter.

Butt Bolt: This one looks like a real bruiser. A large tip promises an intense entry, the ridges on the side will stimulate/ tire out the sphincter intensely and the large different between the maximum diameter and the neck will be a good approximation of a fist punching a hole.

This list is a great example of your great taste – or how well you know what makes the hungry ass pig in me happy. So as much as these toys are on my Christmas list for reviewing them for you, as much am I and my testee panel looking forward to the testing process if I should get them one day.

As with all items in the little gift guide list Mr Hankey’s toys are premium quality, being hand crafted out of top notch platinum silicone which is reflected in the price. The Prince Charming and the Solatok are available at Mr S for prices between $129.95 and $184.95 depending on the size while at the moment the Butt Bolt is only available at Mr Hankey directly for between $69.95 and $144.95. But if they are as good as the ones which are currently traveling through Europe bringing joy to my testees, they are worth their money!

Vendor: Mr Hankey’s

About two years ago a new company manufacturing high quality silicone anal toys emerged: Mr Hankey. Quickly I got reader questions if I knew the company and what I thought about their products. So I got in touch with them and they were so kind to send me two of the designs I have been asked the most about: The XXXCalibur and the Dragon.

Construction

Like most top notch anal toys, all Mr Hankey toys are made out of platinum silicone. The “platinum” refers to the catalyst used to make the silicone. Being a noble metal is it hypoallergenic and doesn’t cause adverse effect inside the body like tin which is used as a catalyst for cheap silicone. Besides being body-safe, platinum silicone can withstand acid and heat. In addition to the super-smooth surface which makes it hard to bacteria to linger, platinum silicone toys can be cleaned easily and quickly: Either put them in hot water with an acid cleaner or even auto-clave them. Being sanitized so easily, these toys are ideal when playing with multiple partners in a safe way. As always with silicone toys, never use them with silicone lube because it can damage the toy.

The Mr Hankey Dragon and XXXCalibur

Off the rack Mr Hankey offers two firmnesses: Medium and 75% firm. The medium gives the texture presence without preventing them to give in while the 75% firm is squishy but still strong enough that even a larger and thinner toy like the XXXCalibur stands erect on its own. Though as always the rule applies: The thicker a toy, the harder it will feel. You can now ask for custom firmness degrees which might be useful for extreme long depth toys to get around all the bends or to make the texture on anthropomorphic toys extra intense.

As standard, Mr Hankey offers three classic colors: Natural Tan, Brown and classic black. For a surcharge you can get all kinds of extravagant colors like I got on my Dragon: A nice turquoise with ruby accents. Just follow their Twitter (with most straight NSFW content!) where once in a while they share pictures of their newest creations.

Detail of the Vac-U-Lock Hole on the Dragon

A nice additional feature is the Vac-U-Lock hole at the bottom. With this hole you can attach the dildo to fuck machines or strap-on-harnesses who feature a Vac-U-Lock plug. Mr Hankey also offers a Handle Attachment for $24.95 for easier manually guided penetration. When washing the toy, make sure that the Vac-U-Lock hole is completely dry before storing it! Otherwise mole might start to appear.

The shape of the XXXCalibur roughly resembles an uncut dick. The tip is modeled after a long-drawn glans which just slightly peaks out of the foreskin. It tappers a bit again before the oval shaft extends to its full diameter. The shaft is lightly texture with veins which tease a novice the sphincter just a little bit but are mostly not noticeable for real ass pigs. At the bottom there are two large balls which allow for a good grip for the top.

The Dragon on the other hand sets the mood for the toy right from the tip: While it also features a glans, it is anthropomorphically shaped with rugged ridges which almost look scale like. From the glans all the way to the base the runs a band of deep, ridged scales at the front and the back of the shaft. The sides between the scales is lightly textured with a snake skin pattern. The roughness of the Dragon is underlines by the fact that the shaft’s maximum diameter  comes just behind the glans so there is not much resting time after conquering the challenging glans.

Detail of the Draon’s Texture

Playing with the XXXCalibur & Dragon

Through the anatomic shape and the light texture the XXXCalibur is a good curious-beginners’ and easy-play toy. For some of my testees it actually became their everyday dildo because in the 75% firmness it felt like a human dick to them.

Beyond smooth riding, the XXXCalibur  – especially in the larger site – is a good depth training toy. Even in 75% firmness it has enough stability to be easily controlled yet is flexible enough to go around bends. When training on your own, it is firm enough to stand up during careful fucking so you can focus on controlling the pressure applied to the second sphincter. The long-drawn glans is perfect for training the second sphincter to open up. Through the little tapper between the glans and the shaft it can actually close again once inserted so you can do the same “plug fucking” you do with the anus when training up for taking a fist.

The Dragon is almost the direct opposite of the XXXCalibur. Being so heavily textured right from the beginning, it is hard to take, even for more experience ass pigs. So especially when not riding it yourself but if a top pushes it in, be extra careful. But the rugged glans is great for teasing the ass lips and the sphincter without fully pushing in. Just messaging the sensitive tissue with the ridges is enough to drive some bottoms made.

Detail of the XXXCalibur’s Long-Drawn Glans and Light Texture

Once inserted the scale bands on the top and bottom of the shaft tease and torment the sensitive sphincter even when turned lightly. The deep textures gives the otherwise relatively circular shaft an oval shape. Because of that, every turn also induces a stretching sensation. What is really evil is cumming while riding the toy and then having to pull it out. The again tightened up sphincter will face a challenge with the deep ridge under the glans rim.
