Construction

The Mega Milk’it borrows its basic shape from the popular Egg plug with it smooth, oval body, a smaller neck and a stretched base to fit comfortably between the ass cheeks. Though both sides of the body are very different: One side has a small bulge above before the taper towards the base, very similar to the Acorn. The other side has been “cut off” and replaced with ridges around the rim and two thicker, thus sturdier ones sticking out of the hollow carved into the body. The base on the side of the ridge is flat, on the side of the ridges it is curved upward like on the Egg plug.

The Square Peg Mega Milk’it

The overall height of the plug is 150mm of which the body takes up 110mm. The body is 64mm wide and measuring the ridges on the rim 54mm deep. Because the ridges fold easily and the body has relatively little mass due to the deep hollow it folds easily, making it easy to insert despite the texture. The upward pointing tip raises 40mm above the base.

The Ridges inside the Hollow on one side of the Body

Like all Square Peg toys the Mega Milk’it is made out of platinum silicone which makes the toy body safe, hypo allergenic and easy to clean. Though you should not use it with silicone lube because the silicone oil in it will damage the toy.

Playing with the Mega Milk’it

As written already, the Mega Milk’it is quite easy to insert. I recommend using lots of lube, maybe even injecting some lube into the ass because this is not a toy for long-term wearing but for moving inside the hole targeting the prostate. Alternatively – for extra effect – hold the head of a massager against the base. The soft material will transmit the vibration onto the prostate and sphincter making it buzz and the bottom squirm and scream.

Detail of the Bulge on one side of the Body

Both sides have very different effects which greatly depend on the bottom’s anatomy. The bulge is meant for moving the toy in and out, massaging the prostate in a smooth, flowing way. Some testees – like me – would have wished for a little bit more prominent bulge but this can easily be fixed using Square Peg’s Peg Away Putty. The ridges both work when fucking with the toy but also for twisting inside the hole and are a little bit better for vibrations because through the smaller contact area they are felt more intense. In order to fully enjoy the ridges, the ass has to be fairly relaxed; otherwise the just fold creating a still textured surface instead of sticking out ridges. When using this side of the toy, the base’s tip also massages the prostate on the perineum. BUT: The side only worked for about 60% of my testee panel.  To explain why, let’s dive a bit into anatomy: A healthy prostate is an about walnut sized organ sitting just behind the sphincter and above the perineum. Depending on the individual anatomy, it can be half a walnut bulging the rectum’s mucosa or just be a little, almost unnoticeable rising. If the latter is the case, the ridges inside the hollow do not reach is, just the flappy ones around the rim can stimulate it, making it hard to target.

Detail of the Base

So despite this being a good and fun toy, I would not consider it a great toy. The hollow is too deep to make it enjoyable for everyone. The ridges are just a bit too flappy for an on point stimulation. Part of the criticism could be addressed with offering the toy also in Firm Black. With this added firmness and with just a little bit thicker (thus sturdier) and especially in the middle longer ridges, it could bring fun to every prostate.

Where to buy?

In the USA you can get the Mega Milk’it at Mr S for $69.95 and in the EU from Regulation for £69.99.

If the Mega Milk’it is too large for you or you do not like the textured side, Square Pegs offers a variety of other prostate massagers like the Charlie Horse Milk it which is basically a smaller size of the Mega Milk’it or the Kidney plug – in small Charlie Horse and large – which “just” massages your prostate with a bump but otherwise is smooth.

SquarePeg Ripple & Vortex Slink

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

Form: Dildo
Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: Graphite and Bronze
Firmness: Soft
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.

About half a year ago I reviewed the two most popular depth toys from Square Peg: The Depth Probe and the “smooth” Slink. Since then I have gotten many reader questions about the Slink, especially the textured models which I will answer in this review.

The Square Peg Slink Smooth S, Vortex and Ripple M

I have also been getting questions about the Slink Spike and the Slink Stretch which exceeded my budget. If you want to fix that, feel free to get in touch 😉

Construction

Both Slinks have the same basic shape as the smooth one: At the bottom there is an oval, 20% larger than maximum stretch base which fits well between the ass cheeks. It can also be equipped with a suction cup, ideal for selfplay in the bathroom. On the base’s rim there is the toy’s name and size imprinted into. The base flows into a short tapered neck for long-term wearing or resting when getting fucked with the slink. The neck quickly extends to the maximum stretch which than tappers in very long cone to a pointy yet rounded tip.

Detail of the Slink’s Plug-style Neck

As the name already says, the Ripple’s body is covered with gentle, about 2mm deep grooves. The distance between the grooves starts out at about 20mm and gets smaller the closer they get to the tip. Around the Vortex’s body run four 6mm high ridges like on a wood drill.

The Vortex only comes in one size with an overall length of 500mm and a maximum stretch of 60mm which places it between the Medium and Medium/Large smooth Slink. The Ripple Slink comes in too standard Slink sizes medium (length 405mm and max. diameter 61mm) and large (length 533mm and max. diameter 69mm). Like all Slinks these two toys come in SuperSoft Bronze and Graphite. I have been asked numerous times why you can’t get it in Firm Black. Since the firmness and thus rigidness of a toy increases with the thickness, the bendiness the Slink needs to meander through the guts would be lost

Detail of the Vortex Helix-Style Ridge running around the Body

Playing with the Ripple & Vortex Slink

Since I already talked at length about the Slink as a depth toy, I want to focus on how the specific design features impact the play. First, the Ripple Slink. One of the “disadvantages” of the smooth Slink is, that it just smoothly flows inside the bowels. While this is good to train the butt, most of the feeling is lost. The Ripple fixes that because the grooves add a bit of friction. Not so much that it would be difficult to insert because they are not too deep and the edges are well rounded. But the sensitive nerve endings inside the guts and sphincter notice them. So it is a more “fun” sensation getting fucked with the Ripple compared to the smooth one. The grooves also divide the body a bit into sections which are points where it bends easier compared to the “solid” smooth body. This makes navigating inside twisted passages easier.

Detail of the Ripple’s Grooves

The Vortex also introduces a new sensation. When twisting the toy, the helix-like ridges create an intense sense of motion rarely felt on other anal toys. Especially deep inside the guts it is a weird, unusual though by for most of my testees not unpleasant sensation. While the Ripple’s bendiness is good for exploring willing guts, the Vortex is ideal for bowels which are a bit challenging. The ridges add sturdiness but if you hold it loosely, it will twist in the way of lowest resistance and find its way. The inner organs are a delicate body area so please always be cautious! A bit of force is ok with the Vortex, too much can cause serious injuries! Also, through the large surface area, the Vortex needs considerably more lube than the smooth or Ripple Slink!

Detail of the Slinks‘ Base with the Size and Product Name

While both toys are great to explore ones hole deeper, since they are too thin on the deeper end to prepare for real depth fisting. They are more toys to straighten the bowels out, accustomed them to the sensation of mechanical stimulation which ultimately makes relaxing easier during deep fisting. For stretch training the gateway to the guts, I recommend the Long Neck which I will be reviewing in a few weeks.

Where to buy?

When I am in the USA or Canada, I get my SquarePeg toys from Mr S. The Slink Ripple costs between $119.95 and $159.95 and the Vortex Slink $195.95. In Europe, Regulation has the widest selection and actually lowest price of SquarePeg toys. The Slink Ripple costs between £119.99 and £159.99 and the Slink Vortex £159.99. Regulation carries most toys only in SuperSoft Bronze. If you want them in a Graphite, add the Bronze to your cart and write in the checkout notes you want it in a different color. They then will order it for you which usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks.

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!

The End of Kinky Tumblr – A Personal Farewell

It has been three weeks since Tumblr announced that they would be banning NSFW content on their platform from December 17th on. Until this point the platform was one of the largest – if not the largest – collection of porn in human history. But the moment the news hit the scene, not only a ludicrous discussion about freedom of speech and censorship started[i] but people back-up their data and deleted their blogs. The exodus of active users, one star reviews in the app stores and steeply dropping numbers of blogs and app downloads apparently hit Tumblr so hard that they were forced to release a spurious statement that they would not be deleting but instead hiding stuff and that people can still leave their content on the platform – though nobody could see it anymore. Naturally this did not stop people from leaving Tumblr. At this moment a number of different websites are competing for the users looking where to display and consume their porn elsewhere, but no major one has emerged yet.

Being a big opponent of Facebook’s policies, I never used any of their services, including WhatsApp and Instragram. I have been on Twitter for ages, first with a vanilla account and when I started to set up ToyTorture.com with a kinky account. Tumblr followed some time later when I realized that Twitter was not the best place to present kinky pics. 

Tumblr opened up a whole new world of kink to me. The aesthetic inspired me for pictures, the play setups gave me ideas which toys to get and the perversions sparked interests in trying out new things. It also quickly became an important social media channel for ToyTorture.com. Not only gave the large followership and reblogs my reviews a big exposure but the message and chat feature over time became the largest inbox for reader questions. Since this website is my love child, a single-person operation into which flows a lot of my time, sweat, tears and love, knowing that a lot of people read what I write and getting feedback from my readers means a lot to me. Tumblr helped with that.

Last but not least, the affiliate links for Mr S, Regulation and E-Stim Systems I posted under the posts created a little flow of store credit. It was always my plan to make ToyTorture.com an ad free website to keep it independent. Despite all the critic I get for “promoting” certain products and manufacturers through Desiderates and Christmas gift tips, etc. it is still my personal taste and my wishes as a private person, pervert and toy collector which influences the toy selection and not some corporation urging me to post stuff in order to make money. Because of that, ToyTorture.com actually costs me some money for the server and despite a little stream of review samples a lot of money to buy the toys I review. The affiliate programs gave me store credit help me to buy stuff people are keen in reading a review about even when I am not that interested in the toy that I would spend my hard earned money on it. With Tumblr dying, I am certain my affiliate income will drop and thus limit the range of toys I will be able to review.  

At the time when this blog post will be published, my Tumblr account is still active. I am astonished how many surprisingly sexual pictures are still visible to the public. But still… Tumblr feels barren these days. For years, the Tumblr app on my tablet was my go-to app when I was up WAY too early because of my insomnia. After the purge it is still a collection of hot pics but a lot is missing. It does not feel whole(some) anymore. Having “only” lost 25% of my followers and actually gaining new ones every day (probably flocking to the blogs which still have a decent amount of original pictures), it would probably still be worth to put content on there. On the other hand, the entire controversy spoiled my mood to post content there.

So I guess, I should delete my blog, taking a stand against SESTA and FOSTA and the frightening amount of sex-negativity and conservatism creeping into many societies these days by attacking Tumblr where it hurts them the most: Their ad revenue. To start the new year with a clean slate, I will be deleting ToyTorture.tumblr.com on January 1st 2019.

All the content I posted on Tumblr will probably surface somewhere else as soon as the dust has settled and a new major place-to-be for all the perverts will emerge. In the meantime, follow me on Twitter for content and the latest update where to find my smut. And if you are planning to buy something at Mr S Leather, Regulation or E-Stim System, take a detour over my website and click on one of the links in this article or the banners on the right sidebar. You comments, retweets and affiliate clicks keep ToyTorture.com alive. Thank you for your support and see you soon – where ever this will be.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer IV – SquarePeg Double Fist Plug

A – humorous – saying in fisting is “Go big or go home.” While I should stress that fisting is not competitive sport and everybody should progress in their own pace to the desired stimulation, there are some perverts who need it bigger, harder, faster. For whom getting their sphincter stretched is an insatiable thirst. For those – and maybe to a certain degree me – is the SquarePeg Double Fist Plug. With its massive diameter of a bit over 10cm, it is one of the largest plugs on the market and I cannot imagine how heavy it is. But since it is only 25cm in overall length, it is probably “comfortable” to sit on – if you can deal with the feeling of a completely filled and stretched rectum. I am not sure if I will ever be able to fit conquer this plug but in Graphite it will definitely be a nice and intimidating decoration piece in my playroom –though for $249 a rather pricy one.

The Squarepegs Short Fist Plug from Mr S Leather

For those who are looking for a little bit less of a stretch, take a look at the Short Fist Plug for $139.95 at Mr S Leather or the Monster Egg which are already a challenge but an easier one.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer I – Vector Heavy Padded Bondage Sleeves

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer II – The London Tanners Riding Crop & DD Strap

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer III – Doxy No 3 & Nexus Doxy Attachments

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer I – Vector Heavy Padded Bondage Sleeves

From 2012 to 2015 on each  Advent Sunday I presented you some (unusual) kinky Christmas gifts. The last two years due to being too busy with work I let this tradition slip but this year I decided to pick it up again. I did some research – and found only the same quirky stuff I recommended the last years. Since one of the most often asked reader questions is “Is there anything a guy with your toy collection still wants?”, I decided to write down what would be on my kinky wish list.

Detail of the Arms Tied Down on the Sides

The first item on the list are the Mr S Vector Heavy Padded Bondage Sleeves. They are basically the arms of their amazing Vector Ultra-Padded Straitjacket with a harness instead of body. I know, for most bondage aficionados, stricter, tighter, more layered bondage is appealing but I am more a practical kind of guy with a bit of claustrophobia. So these sleeves are perfect for me. They appear to be as effective in immobilizing a sub as a straitjacket does. You can even tie the arms parallel to the body. But instead of enclosing the torso in a layer of leather, there are just harness straps leave all the important parts like the nipples, ass and junk fully exposed. A skilled flogging top might be able to hit the shoulder blades between the harness’ leather belts. Each roller buckle strap on the sleeves to runs through a D-ring, providing enough anchorage points to fetter the sub down tightly for example to keep him from moving too much when being exposed to wax play. Otherwise the hot wax might tarnish the leather.

Detail of the Harness and the Straps holdign the Bondage Sleeves in Place

Besides the play aspect, I like the aesthetic component of it. When being bound in a straitjacket, the entire torso is covered, hiding the leather uniform, rubber gear of body writing the sub is proudly displaying or forced to wear. This limited coverage is also great for outdoor play in the summer or street fairs like Dore Alley, Folsom (Europe) or pride marches when a straitjacket over gear might cause the sub to overheat.

Being made out of a lot of leather and needing a lot of manual work to create the beautiful vector-quilted padding, the Vector Heavy Padded Bondage Sleeves are on the more expensive side of gear purchases at $879.95 but I am certain I will get my money’s worth once I add this piece of bondage gear to my collection.

SquarePeg Slink

The Entire Slink Range From Left to Right: Slink, Slink Ripple, Slink Spike and Slink Vortex

I do not only like to play with toys and ultimately review them, but I am also a bit of a toy collector, trying to accumulate iconic or original sex tools. In this category falls the SquarePeg Slink.

Square Peg was one of the – if not THE – first company which made depth toys out of platinum silicone which trough its smooth surface and right degree of flexibility is perfect for depth play. They started out with their a bit crude look Slither and over 10 years ago added the more technically Depth Probes. In 2011 they combined the two toys, added a dash of butt plug and the Slink emerged. Since then the Slink has become one of the most iconic and widely used anal toys for going deep. Because I got so many reader questions which toys for depth play to get, I reviewed the Slink and the Depth Probe this June. However, while I own the Depth Probe, the Slink was just a loan from my dear friend Teck Pup and now I want one of my own.

A few years ago, this was an easy decision: You just had to choose between SuperSoft Bronze and Graphite (though for “iconic” reasons you obviously choose the Bronze ;)). In 2015 SquarePeg introduced the Ripples versions of the Slink. A year later the Slink Spike. And two years later the Vortex arrived at the party. Which one should I get?

This question brings me to why I started ToyTorture.com 6 years ago: When facing the question which Slink to get, I searched the web for reviews of the different versions. How do the different textures feel? How do they impact how easy the toy goes deeper? Makes the textures’ added grip them easier to control? Sadly, there was nothing and with prices between $69 and $369 they are on the more expensive side of anal toys. So despite the price being absolutely fair for the quality, buying an unsatisfying toy will be extra annoying. For questions like this and to minimize the risk of buying a wrong toy, I started ToyTorture.com to give at least some orientation when looking for a toy for a specific fantasy, describing how they feel, perform and what can be done with them.

So, where does this leave me? I fear, I have to get at least three textures and compare them in a review some time the future. So, for variety reasons, my Slink wish list would probably be:

Small Smooth Slink SuperSoft Bronze

Medium Rippled Slink SuperSoft Bronze

Vortex Slink SuperSoft Graphite

If you are interested in testing out SquarePeg toys in general or the Slink in particular, you can get them at Mr S Leather in the USA or Regulation which has the largest selection in the EU.

 

 

 

Erostek ET312b

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

The Erostek ET312b

Since the ET312b is sometimes considered not to be compliant with EU electronic device regulations, if shipping it to the EU I highly recommend ordering it from Regulation. I had several friends’ boxes ordered from the USA seized by customs.

Construction

The Erostek ET312b is probably one of the oldest e-stim power boxes which is still on the market. Its design has almost become iconic, the characteristic beige box having been featured on so many porn pics over the last decades – until Erostek changes the design a few years ago to a more stylish black. This design change lead to some discussion in my testee panel. Some – like me – prefer the new look because it fits the style of most playrooms and scene atmospheres. Other likes that the old box popped out and is indeed a classic. If you have an old box and want the new look, there is a kit to exchange the case – or do it the Trikoot way and use alkyd based paint to color the case in your signature color. The case has a rough texture which forgives finger prints while the control panel is still glossy. The box measures 205x157x65mm making is the largest of the e-stim power boxes. This is largely due to the lead acid battery which has a capacity of up to 48h. But which also makes the box with a weight 1.200g making it the heaviest box on the market. When the battery gets old, it can be replaced with a little bit of electro technical know-how but unlike the other boxes which are powered by 9v block batteries, if it runs out mid-scene in a club you can’t replace the battery instantly but have to use the power supply unit. Generally speaking, Erostek sales almost everything as spare parts. So if something gets broken and you are handy, you can fix it yourself.

Detail of the Control Panel

The entire front of the box is taken up by the control panel. The left third is for display information. On top there is a two-line green backlight LCD. Below it there is a hole through which you can adjust the screen’s contrast using a fine screw-driver (which is only necessary in extreme weather conditions) and two red LEDs which flash when channel A and/or B is firing. In the middle there are the main control buttons. The first horizontal pair are the grey buttons Menu and ok. Pressing Menu will get you to the advanced setting (see below) and OK will select the currently displayed menu point. Next to them are white buttons labeled Up and Down. In the menu they are used for navigating. Outside the menu, they are used to scroll through the box’s programs. Next to the Up key there are three rotary controls. The first is “Multi Adjust” to manipulate the current program, the other two are controlling the power level of channel A and B. Below the three knobs there is the power button which starts up the box, the link jack for connecting the ET312b with a computer, 3.5mm jack line-ins for the microphone and another one labeled “Audio”. I have tried the microphone and music on both jacks and got the same effects so I am not sure why there are two. Theoretically the mic should create very faint sensations when plugged into Audio but I did not experience that. Next are the two 3.5mm outputs for channel A and B and last the input for the power supply unit.

Detail of the Display

The ET312b comes with a few accessories: The power supply with adaptors for USA, EU and Canada, two 1.2cm long 3.5mm jack to 4mm banana plug leads, a 2m long line-in cable to connect you phone or MP3 player with the power box, a microphone with a 2.4m long cable and holdfast with a small glue patch to permanently position it somewhere in your playroom (though the holdfast is so flimsy and the glue to weak, I use adhesive tape to position and fix the mic in a suitable position for each scene) and an informative manual. What the ET312b doesn’t come with – unlike most other modern premium e-stim boxes – is a nice carrying case.

Playing with the Erostek ET312b

The ET312b is used like every other box. After pressing the power button a 3 second self-test is run after which the battery’s power level is displayed. After that connect the leads to the electrodes, connect them to the box, select a program and slowly turn the channel’s intensity up until the sub starts to feel someting.  The ET312b has 18 resp. 24 different programs. The last 6 programs are custom once which can be transferred onto the box using the ErosLink software. After selecting a new program there is a short ramping up period. This is to prevent too intense stimulation for the case the power level has not been turned down before the change. This is necessary because every program feels differently intense on the same power output level. The sensation of the programs can be adjusted by turning the Multi Adjust knob.

Program name Sensation Multi Adjust Effect
Waves Wave-like sensation with random wave length and intensity Speed of waves
Stroke Steady wave form on both channels Wave length
Climb Pulsed sensations that increases up to the maximum selected  intensity Climbing speed
Combo Sensation like wave program but changing between the channels Length of stimulation on both channels, simultaneous stimulation when turned all the way up
Intense Unmodulated waves Wave length and feel from soft to spiky
Rhythm Pulses of increasing sensation which’s output will increase each cycle Pulse length
Audio 1 Transforms audio input into same stimulation on both channels Selects input’s sensitivity level: Turn Multi Adjust until LEDs are flashing than start adjusting the channels’ intensity
Audio 2 Transforms left side audio signal into stimulation for channel A and right side for channel B
Audio 3 Transforms left side audio signal into stimulation for channel A and right side for channel B but process the waveform in a unique way
Split Channel A: Stroke, channel B: Waves Speed of waves & wave length
Random 1 Mixes patterns from the first 6 programs for a unique stimulation Alters selection variable
Random 2 Random stimulations at changing intervals No effect
Toggle Constant output on alternating channels Changing speed between the channels
Orgasm Ramping up pulses alternating between the channels Pluse frequency
Torment Brief stimulation bursts with random pattern and random breaks Pluse frequency
Phase 1 Allows for stimulation to be felt in three electrodes on the body Speed of changing between channels
You need special tri-phase cables to experience these channels
Phase 2 Adds changing intensity
Phase 3 Three programs on only two channels

With an output of 80 micro coulombs per pulse the ET312b is the most powerful unit in the market. Through the powerful battery it delivers this output regardless if running on battery or using the external power supply. While most subs do not really need the full power on most boxes, if you are having a real pain pig over, having the extra power in the backhand without having to change the electrodes is good.

Just like the E-Stim Systems 2b, the ET312b supports tri-phasing. This means using a special cable the stimulation can be felt at three areas using only a two channels. Since for this kind of stimulation there is an interaction between all three poles, never use it above the waist!

The Microphone which comes with the ET312b

What sets the ET3212b apart from all other power boxes currently available on the market are the advanced features which you can access through the menu button. These features can be used to customize the power box to your personal preferences like:

  • Turning the ramping after a program change on and off
  • Selecting which two programs should be run in split mode
  • Selecting which program the ET312b should be the default after starting up
  • Choosing a power level
  • Change the feeling of programs

As already mentioned Erostek also sells soft- and hardware to program the ET312b. Through the Eroslink software you can write new programs, alter existing programs also on the fly or choose from 25 new programs to fill the six “hidden” program slots in the menu. I have never used the software myself but tried it at a friend for a short time. While it is powerful, you need a lot of understanding how e-stim works (or trying out a lot on the fly) to really develop new routines. And while the interface is functional, it looks very Windows 95 – which explains why the connection to the box is done via a serial port… Especially if you look for remote control over the internet, take a look at the E-Stim System 2b.

Last but not least: Because the ET312b has been on the market for so long and through the advanced features is considered a “pro box” (even though most people probably will never use the features), sooner or later most e-stim enthusiasts will buy one of these boxes. These makes the ET312b the ideal choice for subs who host traveling tops because it is likely that the top will already know how to use the power box without an introduction.

Conclusion: Most powerful, most sophisticated, most widely used but most complicated power box.

Leather Handcuffs

The Mr S Leather Handcuffs

Vendor: Mr S

Construction

The Leather Handcuffs are made out of two slim cuffs made out of belt leather. The belt leather strap is 25mm wide and lined with soft leather. 50mm behind the flap which houses the lockable roller-buckle the strap widens to 40m. This section is 120mm long and is padded with soft foam. Into the last, also 120mm long section of the strap holes have been punched for the buckle. The spacing allows the cuffs to adjust for almost every size of wrist; starting at a tiny diameter of 50mm up to a massive 100mm wrist diameter.

Detail of the Padding

The two cuffs are connected cross-over by two strong rivets. This way the cuffs don’t twist. Between them is an 80mm long and 25mm wide strap of leather which has welded D-rings on both ends. The Handcuffs come with a pair of keyed alike Master Locks.

Playing with the Leather Handcuffs

Handcuffs are one of the most common pervertable and thus bondage means in BDSM scene. Widely available they come loaded with fetish fantasies and are easy to use. But long-term wearing of tightly fitted handcuffs can lead to serious nerve damage and wrist injuries. So as hot as – carefully! – snapping handcuffs around the bottom’s wrist, they should not be worn during an entire scene. Through the wide strap and the padding these cuffs can be worn indefinitely long.

Detail of one of the D-rings

Unlike professional handcuffs these leather ones have to anchor points to incorporate them into a more elaborate bondage layout. My testees most often used them for rope bondage setups because the rope ran very smoothly through the D-rings. In combination with leather or rubber gear and toys I used them for impromptu shoulder-to-wrist restraints by locking them to a harness or connect them to a ball stretcher with a D-ring for an interesting feedback loop. The wide strap and padding provides some support for the wrist. So the handcuffs can be used for stress bondage like a hogtie. Unlike in a traditional hogtie the wrist are not in line with arms but oblique and over-cross. This adds extra stress to the arms and shoulders once the sub starts to move his legs. The leather handcuffs can even be used for limited suspension like keeping the sub on the tip of his toes, though they are not made for real suspension bondage.

Detail of the Locking Buckle

The large holes for the lockable buckle require rather large spacing between the holes. This makes a secure adjustment sometimes difficult when the wrist is just too large for the tighter hole and the next hole makes the fettering considerably looser. A locking pin with the consequently tighter spacing would have been better and more secure. To tell the truth this only happened once during the 6 month testing period. The cross-over design makes it really difficult to find a point of application to wiggle out of them.

Conclusion: Simple yet versatile handcuff like restraints.

Tweezer Nipple Clamps

The Tweezer Nipple Clamps from Mr S and Regulation

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

These are one of the first clamps I have ever bought and I thought I already reviewed them years ago – until last week when a reader asked for my thoughts on these clamps and I realized I never reviewed them. So better late than never, here are my thoughts on the Tweezer Nipple Clamps.

Construction

The clamps are made out of folded spring steel. Each branch is approx. 7cm long and the last centimeter is bent towards each other. To cover up the sharp edges and for a little bit better grip the last 2cms are covered by vinyl. On both branches runs a slider for adjusting the clamps’ pressure. The clamps are connected by a chain which is attached to rings to prevent the chain from tangling up. The total length of rings and chain is 30cm.

Playing with the Tweezer Nipple Clamps

To attach the clamps to the sub’s nipple, ball skin or frenulum, the branches must simply be gently pulled apart and the skin or tissue placed between the tips. Gripping the branches is best done with the finger nails. It still can done wearing thin police or rubber examination gloves. But bulkier ones like industrial rubber, MX or motorcycle gloves make it impossible. Like all larger clamps which center of gravity is towards the back, the clamps should be attached parallel to the body to keep them from involuntarily slipping off. Since they are very sleek and slim, the clamps are perfect to be worn under cloths.

Most of the testees described the initial pressure sensation as medium-intense; a nice, notable and tantalizing presence for the experienced nipple player but nothing for a novice! The pressure is strong enough to keep the Tweezers on the nipple even after the tissue water has been displaced. Though the grip is not strong enough to hold dropping weights or pull when tying the clamps to moving limbs. For more experience pain pigs or when during the scene the nipples become less sensitive, the pressure and thus the pain can be increased by moving the slider towards the tip. This should be done slowly because these clamps have brought an experience nipple pain pig to tears during the testing. If this is not enough, the small contact points leave most of the nipple exposed which provides room for wax, icy-hot or pin wheels for example…

Detail of the Sliders to Adjust the Intensity

The Tweezer Clamps are really made for bare skin play. The small contact surface needs the tissue to dig into. So a good way to prepare the nipple is working with nipple suckers to add puffiness (and sensitivity). While attaching the clamps somehow works through thin rubber (up to approx. 0.4mm) or lycra, leather or thicker rubber do not go well with these clamps. The nipple should also dry and lube-free because of the smooth vinyl cover.

Conclusion: Highly adjustable clamps for the more experience Nipple Player.
