Construction

These are the first explicit depth toys in this Anal Toy Special, so naturally the Thick Worm and the Thick Stamen are on the longer side of toy design. Both have a usable length of 350mm. This enough to stimulate the second hole and penetrate it, yet with a little bit of practice both toys can be taken completely without much challenge. These are the only similarities the two toys have.

The Thick Worm starts out with a triangular head which makes pushing it in quite easy. The head is 55mm tall and smooth and tapers from 25mm to 42mm.

The SquarePeg Thick Stamen & Thick Worm

Below the head there is a 3mm drop. Over the length of 19mm the diameter increases again until there is another 3mm drop. These “scales” are very lightly textured with very shallow vertical grooves. With each scale the edge length of the triangular toy body increases a bit, slightly increasing the diameter up to 65mm at the last scale. The toy then flows into an oval base. The base can be equipped with two extra features: Either a suction cup which a friend who has one on his Thick Worm says is too weak to hold such a long and heavy toy or the SquarePegHole. This hole is a universal adaptor for the various fuck machine adapter standards. There is also a market out there for stand-alone accessories like suction cups or handles. So in my opinion you are better off and more versatile with the SquarePegHole.

The Stick Stamen on the other hand starts out with a round, long head that tapers over 72mm from 30mm to 56mm. After the maximum stretch, there is a smooth decrease in diameter by 5mm after which then to starts to expand again. This repeats 4 times until at the last of the 5 cones the maximum diameter reaches 71mm. Between this cone and the quadratic base is 52mm thick neck for resting when you have taken the entire toy.

As the name of both toys already implies, there are shorter and thinner versions of both toys available.

As in this review of heavy depth toys, I am surprised that SquarePeg offer these toys not only in their signature Supersoft Bronze which I have bought and the Supersoft Graphite but also in Firm Black. From the sensation side I can understand why they offer these toys in Firm Black because especially on a loose hole, they will feel more intense. But since firmness also compromises bendiness, I am not sure if these toys could work in that material (though, as an texture junkie, I am very intrigued to find out!). If you have any of those two toys in Firm Black, please let me know how they feel and work.

Detail of the Softly Tapering Cones along Thick Stamen’s Shaft

All three color options are made out of Platinum Silicone. Unlike other silicone types which are cured with lead for example, it is 100% body-safe, hypo-allergenic and easy to clean. Simply soak in warm dish-soap water, use the dishwasher or autoclave them after washing off the lube. For extra care, sanitize them to be 100% sure.

Like all silicone toys, these two should never be used with silicone lube since the silicone oil in the lube harms the surface and can destroy the toy. Water- and oil-based lubes are safe to use with both toys. Since different plasticizers can also destroy the silicone, they should be stored together with vinyl or rubber toys. If they have to be stored together, the place should be well ventilated and the different materials should not touch.

Detail of the Scales Texturing Thick Worm’s Shaft

Playing with the Thick Worm & Thick Stamen

Being relatively thick right from the top and not too long, both toys – unlike other depth toys – are easy to handle. With light pressure the tip pops in and then keeps the toy upright when riding it. The body does not bend too much under pressure so it is a good toy for selfplay when you start to explore depth – sadly unlike the Slinks which are way harder to get in and control when you are inexperienced. Despite both shafts being bendy, they are rigid enough to be navigated, find their way inside the hole and go deep, again unlike the Slinks which tend to curl up inside the rectum when you are inexperienced.

Sensation-wise both toys are quite different and it is hard to tell which of the two the “softer” one is. The Thick Worm’s vertical grooves help to catch the lube, making it a toy for a bit longer ride. The subtle drop after each scale intensifies the friction sensation all ass toys create inside the sphincter during fucking. This makes the Thick Worm’s sensation a controllable simply through the speed it goes in and out of the hole. The triangular shape creates an unusual and surprising sensation when turned inside the hole and especially the second sphincter. Some of my testees and me found that the triangular head made it a bit easier for the toy to navigate inside the rectum and penetrate the second sphincter because there is a sense of direction.

Detail of the Thick Stamen’s Cone-Shaped Head

With the Thick Stamen however the sensation is quite different. Through the chain of cones, the stretch sensation is very prominent, especially at the second sphincter. Riding or fucking with the Tick Stamen is a serious of “pop” sensations which’s intensity can be controlled by the speed. Since there is not drop like on the Thick Worm but a steep yet soft slope, in slow motion the sphincter can gradually adjust to the change in diameter. Due to the neck, the Thick Stamen can be worn while moving around. It is an interesting sensation when the cones move inside the rectum and colon, massaging both sphincters. But the quadratic base, does not really fit well between the cheeks. One testee uses a rope harness to keep both toys in place because the Thick Worm’s body flows directly into an oval base which kind of fit between the ass cheeks despite being wide.

Vendor: SquarePeg (USA) & Regulation (EU)

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

The SquarePeg Happy Hour XL and Monst in Supersoft Graphite

Construction

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

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

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

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

Size Overall Length Insertable Length Max. Diameter Max. Diameter Neck Available in Firm
S2 130mm 105mm 40mm 26mm Yes
S4 150mm 120mm 50mm 32mm Yes
S6 160mm 130mm 57mm 37mm Yes
Small 190mm 150mm 64mm 42mm No
Medium 195mm 155mm 76mm 50mm No
Large 240mm 190mm 82mm 54mm No
XL 210mm 170mm 89mm 58mm No
Monster 245mm 195mm 95mm 62mm No

Detai of the Happy Hour’s Base

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

Detail of the Happy Hour’s Head

Playing with the Happy Hour

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

Detail of the Ridge for Massaging the Anus or the Prostate

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

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

Where to buy?

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

SquarePeg Blunger & Torque

Form: Complex Shape Depth Toy
Material: Platinum Silicone.
Colors: Graphite, Bronze & Black
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.

Vendor: SquarePeg (USA) & Regulation (EU)

Construction

The Blunger starts out with an almost perfect half-dome with a diameter of 45mm to softly open up a trained sphincter. After a short resting recess, it gradually extends to 67mm after which a 50mm long and 51mm wide neck follows. Just at the end of the neck there is a 61mm diameter bulge, a bit like around the edge of an Acorn. Now again gradually the Blunger widens softly yet steadily to the max. oval diameter of 80x90mm. Below the maximum diameter it steeply drops to 69x80mm. After slightly decreasing in diameter for 35mm there is another 3mm bulge until you can rest on the neck above the rectangular foot after taking the entire 280mm insertable length.

Left: SquarePeg Blunger, Right the Torque both in Supersoft Graphite

The Torque is a completely different kind of toy: It starts out with a small, slightly point yet rounded tip. From there on four thick, deep ridges – like a wood drill -meander around an in diameter increasing core. The ridges are disrupted by two small untextured “necks”, dividing the toy into three, 85mm long segments. The first is one starts out at around 15mm with the tip and has a max. diameter of 65mm at around 70mm measured from the tip. The second segment is starts out at 62mm and a max. diameter of 77mm. The last one starts out at 75mm and flows into the rectangular base at 290mm insertable length without a neck at a whopping 100mm. The maximum diameter has to be taken with a grain of salt though: These is the maximum extension of two ridges, there is space between them to compress them. So taking the entire toy is feasible yet challenging even if you can’t take a 100mm plug.

To my surprise both toys despite being VERY intense are not only made in SquarePeg’s signature Supersoft Bronze and Graphite but also in Firm Black. Since the firmness also effects the bendiness of toys, I am actually not sure how a Blunger in firm black could work. If you have experience, please write to me.

Detail of the Blunger’s Round Tip

Material-wise both toys are made with the high standards of all SquarePeg toys: Pure body-safe, easy to clean Platinum Silicone – ideal for allergic people or orgies. To clean them, throw them in the dishwasher, autoclave them, use bleach or dishsoap. They toys won’t mind and thus they are quickly clean and sterilized to be pushed into a new hole. Especially when you get the soft versions of this toy, store it upright or laying down without pressure to keep the toys from getting creases. Like all anal toys, you should store them only with toys of the same material together. Otherwise the plasticizers of vinyl for example can damage the silicone permanently and irreversible.  To keep the silicone in best shape and not risk tarnishing the surface, do not use silicone lube with these toys. They are safe with every other kind of lube like oil- or water-based ones.

Playing with the Blunger & Torque

This is going to be hard again: My testees and I all love both of these toys because of their creative, unique shape. These toys are great examples for the founder of SquarePeg being a sculpture and real ass aficionado. He just KNOWS how a toy needs to be shaped to hit the right spots. But because of their complex shape, the greatness is hard to convey this time. So I am going to give it a try…

In the quick info box I called both toys “depth toys” and that is true to some extended. Both are long enough to penetrate and stretch the second sphincter. But until you get there, you have to master both of these toys which is an intense, hot and horny challenge.

The Acron-Like Prostate stimulating Bulge on the Blunger

The Blunger feels a bit like a Best-of of all SquarePeg toys: It has the flowing thickening of the Ballistic toys, the prostate stimulating bulge of the Acorn, the round, easy-entry tips signature to Rik Jammer, the long resting necks of the Egg and the gentle neck decrease of the Slinks. All these unique shapes have been designed with a specific stimulating purpose in mind. By itself they are great, in the combination they are close to sensory overload. When vigorously fucking a loose (!) hole with the Blunger, a firework of different sensations is set off: From stretch in the sphincter over prostate simulation followed from a short moment of just “relaxing” friction at the middle-neck until the rodeo starts again. For most of my testees the most intense sensation was when taking the toy completely: Depending on your anatomy, you are either at maximum stretch or are stimulating your prostate at the last bulge when the tip begins to stretch the second sphincter and the Blunger starts to go deep. It is an intense, literally mind-blowing experience and not for the faint of heart. Especially when playing hard with the Blunger, make sure that the hole is trained and nicely loose. Otherwise the many stimulations can make it quickly tighten up.

The Short Resting Neck which Segment the Torque between the Thick Ridges running around the Toy’s Core

Again, the Torque is a different kind of game. The small tip and gradual diameter increase make it a toy easy to take. Once inside the piece de résistance of the Torque is twisting it inside the hole. The thick ridges massage the sphincter, creating an interesting mix of friction and stretch sensation. If you go deeper, you can start playing with the angle to target the prostate and either forcefully massage it with the full width and thickness of the ridge or just lightly brush it. Once taken to the point that the tip reaches the second sphincter, it gets interesting again: Since the first segment is fairly thick and the ridges ridged, the twisting sensation inside this rarely stimulated body area was almost too much for even a depth experienced bottom who already has played with a Slink Vortex! The thickness and sturdiness of the ridges, the increase in diameter is just a (w)hole different level of intensity compared to the “soft” Slink Vortex.

Detail of the Flowing yet Challenging Thick Elements of the Blunger

While the Blunger is a good toy for selfplay (I actually recommend starting out to explore this toy on your own before letting another person work your hole over with it!), the Torque is more of a partner toy. Riding it is fun, but the thick ridges make achieving your “usual” diameter a challenge because the texture irritates the hole a bit. Yet the intense sensation of twisting and turning the ridges inside a loose hole is very difficult to achieve on your own.

Where to buy?

When living in the USA, it is best to order from SquarePeg directly because you can get the toy in your desired color and firmness. The Blunger costs $189 and the Torque $199. In the EU, it is easiest to order from Regulation though they currently only stock the Blunger for £189 in Graphite where I got mine from. If you want to get the Torque or the Blunger in a different color, get in touch with them.

ToolBits Silicone Sounds

The Square Peg TollBits B, F, H and I

Vendor: Regulation (EU)/ Square Peg (USA)

Construction & Basic Play Advice

The ToolBits like all Square Peg sounds are hand-made in Oregon out of their graphite colored platinum silicone. Though the color is not as deep and rich as in the anal toys but a bit more opaque. Like the Square Peg anal toys the material is very soft & squishy and has a super smooth surface. While the super smooth surface helps them to glide easily into the urethra, the softness allows the complex textures to simulate this sensitive body area without causing harm. Also, it compresses the sound when it should get tight. This property is necessary, because most of the designs are considerably larger than the “standard” sounding play sizes of 6mm or 8mm. Furthermore it makes these sounds great for play while a PA is still inserted. This being said while through their softness they theoretically are good for beginners because they cannot injure the urethra, they are a bit harder to handle, especially when the piss hole is not used to being stretched and the sphincter just below the meatus has to be gently (!!!) pushed open. So I recommend training with a smooth metal sound to open up this hole and later introduce the delights of the ToolBits’ texture. All of these toys have a short hexagonal base which allow a somewhat secure grip even with lubey hands and prevent it from accidently being swallowed hole.

Detail of the Hexagonal Base

Before and after play, the ToolBits need to be properly and thoroughly sanitized! Otherwise playing with them can lead to nasty infections! Being made out of platinum silicone means, they are not only 100% body-safe and hypoallergenic but can basically be treated like stainless steel or aluminum urethra toys when it comes to cleaning: They can be boiled, autoclaved, put in the dishwasher or thrown into bleach – or just soaked in hot dish soap water, dried and then sprayed with a sanitizer.

The Color Difference between the ToolBits‘ and the Anal Toys Graphite

Like all things that go into your urethra, they should only be used with sterile water-based lube. Period! End of discussion! Ever since I started reviewing urethra toys, I have been getting messages, asking if there are instances where you can use a different kind of lube or that people have been using silicone lube without any problems, etc. So let me emphasis it here again: Water-based lube gets absorbed by the body, silicone- and oil-based not, providing nourishment for bacteria! To even further decrease the chances of that happening, use sterile lube in small sachets because one you open a tube of sterile KY lube, it becomes unsterile. So I strongly recommend getting the more expensive small sachets so be safe than sorry!

All TollBits come in a nifty rectangular plastic box with vinyl like covers for easy storing. While Regulation does not carry all reviewed toys and all sizes, they can custom order them for you; just write to them. I got all my sounds through them.

Looking at the Individual ToolBits

The ToolBits are named with just single letters. Instead of describing them alphabetically, I decided to talk about them in increasing level or intensity.

Detail of the H’s Beads

H

With a diameter of 7mm the H is one of the thinnest ToolBits and thus the easiest to take. If an 8mm stainless steel sound goes in and out the meatus easily, you are ready for the H. The texture is a strand of 4mm tall beads with a 2/3mm neck between each one. There are 13 beads over the length of 82mm. Before the body flows into the base there is a 6mm tall barrel with 4 very faint ridges, like a machine screw’s thread. If you insert the toy all the way and you have a very sensitive sphincter, you can actually feel the ridged gently tantalizing it. Because the texture is so smooth and calm compared to the other sounds reviewed here, it is also a good toy to start venturing deeper into your dick because while the sensations of being stimulated deep inside the shaft are intense, through the evenness and smoothness of the texture they are still well to handle.

The ToolBit H costs $39 at Square Peg.

E

Detail of the E’s Vortex

The tip of the E is a five-ridge woodscrew-thread like vortex which starts out with 4mm diameter and increases to 7mm over a length of 26mm. The grooves between the ridges are about half a millimeter deep so when you twist and turn the sound inside the urethra you get a spinning feeling. The grooves also contain lube very well so the fins glide smoothly. Below the vortex the is a 4mm thick and 10.5mm wide disc. Most of my testees used this as the sign of how deep they can go. Two very eager urethra players pushed it through the sphincter and sounded deep with the E; after the disc there is a 27mm and 8mm thick shaft. There is a bit of taper towards the maximum diameter of the disc and since it is not too thick, it gives in but pushing it though the sphincter does feel intense. Since now there is an intense stretch inside the shaft of the dick, only the tip of the vortex is felt deeper inside but only faintly. All sensations are overpowered by the stretch sensation and the friction around it. Give it a try, but this kind of deep sounding with the E did not win favors with me and my testee panel.

The ToolBit E costs $29 at Square Peg. The design of the E also comes in larger sizes called F and G. F you can order for £28.99 at Regulation.

The Different Stretch Sections of the I

I

If you want to gently stretch and train the dick’s sphincter, the I is the toy to go to. It starts out with an anal plug-like tip which tapers from a 6mm round tip to a max. stretch of 9mm over 19mm and then recedes to a 8mm long and 7mm thick shaft section. Then the plug widens again to 9mm stretch in the middle of a 12mm long facetted section until flowing into another 25mm of shaft. Just like training your anus, gently fucking your meatus with this plug, stretching the hole open, allowing to close and opening uo again will allow the sphincter to relax more easily over time. Because the toy is so long making it hard to control and the maximum stretch comes after a relatively short way, this toy is for the more experienced player.

The ToolBit I costs $39 at Square Peg or £28.99 at Regulation. If the stretch is too small for you, you can also get it in the larger J version.

B

Detail of the B’s Blunt Head

The B is for the real experienced stretch-sensation seeker. It starts out with an 8mm tall and 7mm diameter hemisphere which makes for a real dull entry. Since the 8mm are usually not long enough to push through sphincter completely, the following stretch to 11m over just 5mm is intense. Then there is a 2mm wide and 2/3mm deep grove until it tapers from 11mm to the 8mm shaft diameter in just 5mm. Over 14mm the shaft keeps the thickness but then there is a jump to 9mm without any taper. This section is 16mm and ends at the base. Through the overall bluntness of the toy design, it is only for experience sounders who can take at least 9mm steel diameter easily.

The ToolBit B costs $39 at Square Peg or £28.99 at Regulation. The desing of the B comes in four different sizes from A to D.

The Packaging of the ToolBits

Putty

If you haven’t found the design you are looking for on here, you can always make your own sounds using the Square Peg Putty which I have reviewed here. Either use the supersoft version in bronze or graphite or if you prefer a bit stiffer sounds, the dedicates Make Sounds! kit is packed with firm black platinum silicone. It costs $18.95 at Square Peg or £19.99 at Regulation.

Conclusion: Unique and intensely stimulating silicone sounds.

Oxballs Ballstretcher

Oxballs Ballstretcher from Left to Right: Bullballs, Squeeze and Balls-T

Vendor: Oxballs (USA) & Regulation (EU)

This review is a reader request: It has been a long time since I have reviewed my last Oxballs ballstretcher and some of the toys I reviewed yesteryear have been out of stock for a long time. In the time since my last reviews, I also learned a bit through reader comments. Ballstretchers – as balls – are such an individual thing so it is hard to make a general assumption which model is comfortable, easy to put on or can be used for long-term wearing. But still, I have been getting a steady stream of DMs on Twitter when I will be reviewing the new ballstretchers I wrap around my nuts in my tweets. So keeping in mind what I have learned about reviewing ballstretchers, here are my thoughts on the trio I bought over the last couple of months.

How to Store Silicone, Rubber and TPR Toys properly

General information

As different as the three designs are, they have some things in common. The all have their names written on the body. While this takes a bit away from the clean look, I actually find it a nifty feature when playing with a new dom and having to communicate in bondage which ballstretcher works best on your balls. For cleaning after play, simply soak them in hot dish soap water, rinse them off, sanitize, let them dry and store them away. All ballstretcher should be stores separately like in a shape sorter to keep them from touching. Otherwise the different plasticizers can damage the toys.

Putting ballstretchers on can be a bit annoying because in order to create a noticeable stretch effect, they have to sit tight. To keep the balls from slipping into the body during this struggle, I recommend putting a cockring on first. I you do not want to wear a cockring the entire time, use an Oxballs Ultraballs. They are stretchy enough to be pulled over the junk again once the ballstretcher fits.

Detail of the Notch between the Middle Section and the Top & Bottom of the Bullballs

Bullballs

The Bullballs is an iconic toy by Oxballs. It is actually the first ballstretcher the company ever made back in 2008 or 2009 (there are conflicting pieces of information out there when Oxballs moved from only making anal toys to adding cock and ball toys). When I discovered my love for separate ballstretchers (before the, I preferred slings), the old model was already discontinued. So when they reintroduced it in late 2018, I immediately went out and bought one.

It is a toy for people with low-hangers, coming in two versions: The Bullballs-1 with a height of 50mm and internal diameter of 25mm and the Bullballs-2 with 55mm height and 35mm internal diameter which I have bought. At first the stretch was a bit too much but I could not fit my meaty balls through the 25mm internal diameter. So I recommend to try out which one could work for you before purchasing one!

Detail of the Bullballs‘ Dodecagonal Top and Bottom

The design is quite genius: While the inside is a round tube, the top and the bottom feature dodecagonal facets for added stability. The middle section is a bit narrower and round. This section will compress when the stretcher is a bit too tight first but is strong enough to stretch your balls over time for a comfortable fit. Also, the ring is a good gripping point for CBT though since the notch is not too deep, it can be problematic to get a good grip with lubey fingers. Being made out of platinum silicone, the Bullballs are stretchy and have a smooth surface so skin and most of the time hair does not get caught making it a comfortable toy to wear. While Oxballs says, it is safe with all kinds of lube, I recommend only water- and oil-based lubes because the silicone oil in silicone or hybrid lubes can damage the material over time.

Finally, a word on the look of my Bullballs. The surface is far from perfect with little dents, nicks and even surface tears. I am not used to this kind of imperfection from Oxballs! But when I purchased mine from Gear Berlin in January, all 10 toys on display were this way so I assume it was a problem with the raw material. Knowing the material properties of platinum silicone, despite the far from perfect look, the “weakspots” will still stretch without tearing and they will not catch skin.

The Bullballs-1 come in black, blue, metallic, red, yellow and cost $25 while the Bullballs-2 is only available in black, blue and red, each for $29.

Detail of the Squeeze’s Bulge for Added Stability

Squeeze

I call the Squeeze my “Training stretcher”. Because when a new sub come to me and he does not have REALLY tight or meaty balls, this is my stretcher to go to. With a height of 45mm and internal diameter of 28mm, it does not really sound like a beginner’s toy. But it is all in the clever design: First, there it is made out of FLEX-TPR which is even softer and stretchier then platinum silicone. Second, there is the hour-glass shape with thick bulges on the top and the bottom and a thin neck in the middle which compresses even more then the middle section of the Bullballs. Finally, there is a small ridge on the inside, just below the opening for added stability. I had subs where the middle section was compressed almost completely. But despite the FLEX-TPR being so soft, is will slowly extend and train sub’s balls. The feeling of it, is like a top softly tugging the balls. And with the prominent notch in the middle, it makes the balls easy to grab if he desires to.

As the name says, FLEX-TPR is uberstretchy but the surface is a bit more sticky. So it can tug a bit on hair and skin. To ensure longevity of the toy, only use it with water-based lube because other will over time disintegrate the toy. Out of the three stretchers reviewed here, the Squeeze is the only one not made in the USA but in China from Oxballs’ sub-brand Atomic Jock.

You can choose between black, clear, metallic and red for the Squeeze. It costs $18 at Oxballs and £14.99 at Regulation.

The Blunt No-Frills Desing of the Balls-T

Balls-T

Just like the Bullballs, the Balls ballstretcher come in two sizes: The Balls-T is 30mm high and an internal diameter of 30mm, while the Balls-XL has 40mm height and an internal diameter of 35mm. The Balls-T is a no frills, middle of the road flexible ballstretcher – and that’s why I went for it. The size fits most people comfortable, even over longer periods of time. If in need, it can also be worn as a tight cockring. Being made out of platinum silicone, it has all the advantages already described above. I either use it in situations where I cannot change the ballstretcher and the intense stretch of a Bullballs might be too much (longer bondage scenes or attending a Fuck Mare Market [aka “Hore Fair” if you prefer the common, yet way more softcore English translation] for example or to stack it onto others for an added stretch. Since there is not much to get wrong with this model, I recommend it to all people who do not have extremely small, tight, beefy or low-hanging balls as their first stretcher. If it is too loose, simply stack some simple rings onto it until you are ready for something larger like the Bullballs.

With being available in black, blue, red, neon yellow, neon orange and neon green the Balls-T is actually the most colorful of the selection. It retails for $22 at Oxballs and £17.99 at Regulation. The Balls-XL comes in black, blue and red and costs $28.50 at Oxballs.

Fetters Leather Chest Binder Restraints

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

Detail of the Torso Belt’s Closing Mechanism Using a Lock

The main body of this restraint is a 10cm wide belt made out of 3mm thick bridle leather. On one end there is a locking pin (which naturally comes with a lock) and on the other 15 rivet reinforced holes are punched to adjust the circumference between 94cm and 123cm so you can fetter almost any body type – from twink over body builder to stocky bear – with this restraint. For a more comfortable fit even during extended scenes, the bridle leather is lined with soft garment leather.

Onto this body, two sets of restraints are riveted: An upper arm on the side and a wrist restraint in the front. The follow the same design scheme with bridle leather body and garment leather lining. Their closing mechanism is the same as the one on the Fetters Locking Restraints: A 3cm wide belt, closed with a roller buckle and shut with a locking pin. They are attached using only one rivet so they can twist and turn to accommodate different anatomies. Into the buckle of the upper arm restraints there is D-ring integrated. Another attachment point is a D-ring in the front between the wrist restraints which is hold in place by a piece of leather and four rivets.

The Fetters Chester Binder Restraints

Detail of the Garment Leather Lining and the Edge of the Body’s Bridle Leather

As high quality the materials and craftsmanship of the Chester Binder Restraints are – like every toy and piece of gear made in the workshops of Fetters – a little drop of bitterness are the edges of the restraints. The lining is slightly larger than the rigid leather on the outside so when pressed against the body it covers to some extend the hard edge of it. But still, I would have wished for the outer leather to be dyed and burnished or to put a piping around all the edges for the edges to be line with the overall quality feel and craftsmanship of the toy.

Detail of the Central D-Ring

Playing with the Chest Binder Restraints

When I first got these restraints, my testees and I saw them more as a “mobile” restraint: While rendering the torso and its limbs almost completely useless, the sub can still move around. So the restraints are great for pride, street fairs or party setting where he should still be able to walk while enjoying an intense bondage experience. In clubs the D-rings come in handy because with them the sub can be easily fixed to a post or tied in a frame when he needs some timeout. It lies in the nature of the design of this toy that the nipples are not accessible. However they are good for flogging (novice tops) because the leather belt is a good divider between the area that can be hit and the one which should not. The floggee should have some experience already though because maintaining posture by just leaning against the cross and not hands to stabilize oneself is a challenge of its own – and can introduce a hot element of discipline and punishment if failing to.

The Chest Binder Restraints quickly won the favor of one of my testee panel tops who likes the aesthetic of classic fetish attire like leather uniforms or rubber cat suits and thus dislikes the coverage of straitjackets. Unlike straitjackets, the hands are free in these restraints which opens up a whole world of interesting tasks: Holding the ash tray for the top or a tablet in a cocktail party is almost stress bondage. Another possibility is to make the housework more difficult through the extremely limited range of hand and arm movement. If heavier bondage is desired, simply close the wrist restraints slightly below the wrist and add either Padded Fist Mitts or Bondage Mitts which can be connected to a (muzzle’s) collar.

Detail of the Upper Arm Restraint’s Closing Mechanism inlcuding a Roller Buckle, Locking Pin and a D-Ring

During one scene with a pain pig, I discovered the “stationary” potential of the Chest Binder Restraints. It is great tool to effectively fetter the torso and the upper arms in a lay-down bondage setup. Before the Chest Binder Restraints, I had to put the subs into a bondage harness which while effective, took quite some time to adjust and still left the upper arms unbound. With the D-rings on the side (and maybe running a tension strap through the front D-ring), the torso is effectively kept from getting up. A downside is the locking pin pressing into the back of the sub. Adding a small cushion can soften it, so he can stay bound for extended periods of time.

Conclusion: Extravagant, multipurpose restraints with almost perfect build quality.
Pro Cons Where to get Price
Almost complete immobilization of the arms while allowing to move around Edges of the restraints are not as well executed as the could be Regulation £148.99
Sub still (somehow) able to serve while bound
Enough D-rings for more complex bondage layouts
Leaves gear visible, most of the body accessible and does not a lot of coverage in hot environments

The Square Peg Longneck Humped

Construction

The Longneck Humped starts out with a plug section which looks a little bit like a goose’s head or a hand with closed fingers for a fisting. It tapers conically over the first 65mm for very easy insertion, then one side smoothly increases to a bump with a max. diameter of 70mm. Below this plug-like head the shaft tapers like on a Slink with a faint, almost Acorn-like ridge of 77mm diameter above the plug-like neck. The base is a solid and rectangular for a secure stand and to prevent the Longneck to accidently disappear inside the bottom’s ass. The overall length of the Longneck Humped is 360mm of which 300mm are usable.

Detail of the Acorn-Like Cecond Bump of the Longneck Humped

Playing with the Longneck Humped

As already written: The Longneck Humped is very easy to insert due to the conically shaped tip. The bump into which it flows is an nifty feature. Through the bump the head does not only resemble the shape of a hand, accustoming the colon to the feeling of such an object moving forward, but it gives the toy a “sense of direction”. You can feel where it goes and through twisting discover which is the easiest way around the bends deep inside the ass. This helps to get a feeling how a hand should navigate when trying to venture in depth play. The solid, “edged” base helps a top to precisely twist and turn the Longneck to find the way of the lowest resistance when slowly and carefully (!) pushing forward. When doing this exploring on your own, the Longneck is a bit more difficult to handle. Through the soft material which makes it easy to move around the bends it collapses and flops easily. This makes it hard to ride and even without a suction cup, the stickiness of the silicone makes it hard to twist and navigate the toy when the base rests on the floor. So you rather move while squatting over it instead of twisting the toy… When lying on the back, it takes both hands reaching back to support the body until it is deep inside the colon. This position takes a lot of body tension, leading to a not really relaxed bowels which makes the play more challenging again. Because of that for beginners, it is a bit more of a couples’ toy. When starting going deep on your own, I would recommend a Slink or Depth Probe.

Detail of the Goose Head-Lile Head of the Longneck Humped

But if you are more experience and due to training the toy finds its way inside you on its own, it is a great toy for self-play and further depth training. Riding it, it hits all the right places. The plug part massages or gently fucks the inner sphincter while the ridge at the bottom targets the prostate and anus. This kind of double stimulation was actually so intense, that some of the testees had to reduce the “usual” fucking speed because they considered the Longneck Humped too intense.

Where to buy?

In the USA you can get the Longneck Humped at Mr S for $169.95 and in the EU from Regulation for £169.99.

Family Portrait of the Other Longneck Varietes

The Humped is part of an entire Longneck family where you can everything for depth play: Starting with a complete smooth version (which has a smaller max diameter and overall length than the Longneck Humped) over one textured humps to a version with delightfully mean bumps to one for REALLY deep play.

Ever since Oxballs announced in early 2018 that there would be a new, larger version of the popular Pig-Hole tunnel plug, I was inundated with messages when it would come out and once it did, when I would review it. Due to the massive size of this toy, it was a bit difficult to find testees for it. But now I have found enough to finally give you what is probably one of the most anticipated reviews of this year.

Red Pig-Hole FF vs black Pig-Hole XXL

Construction

The Pig-Hole FF follows the same design and shape as the original Pig-Holes. The opening at the top is a bit slanted with a tip for easier insertion. From the opening the body extends to a wide barrel shape and later tapers to a small neck until flowing into a base. The opening measures 48x62mm and the barrel a whopping 93x108mm while the neck “only” measures 55x72mm. This means the Pig-Hole FF is about 20% larger in volume though at 155mm only 5mm taller than is Pig-Hole XXL. The hole in the bottom measures 57x75mm and thus is only about 10% larger than the XXL, but through a more ergonomically re-design of the base, it has roughly the same footprint making it still fit perfectly between the ass cheeks.

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

Inside the barrel, there are the same ridges as on the original Pig-Hole though they are about 15% deeper for added stability. Oxballs also increased the wall strength from 6.5mm to 8mm to keep the toy inflated even with a little unwilling holes. This increased rigidness also means that you can’t turn the Pig-Hole FF inside out anymore.

The Pig-Hole FF come in Red and Black and not as during the design process discussed on Twitter also in Oxball’s newest color Steel.

Detail of the same Base Footprint of the Pig-Hole FF and XXL

Playing with the Pig-Hole FF

Two and a half year ago, I started this paragraph talking about that the greatest challenge of the Pig-Hole XXL is the insertion. And with the Pig-Hole FF it is even worse, for two reasons:

  1. The easiest way to get the Pig-Hole in is to fold the plug. But the footprint increased from 48x38mm to 51x47mm. It takes a very loose hole to take a “blunt” surface of that size.
  2. The added rigidness makes it harder to and kept fold. Being prepped for insertion with loads of lube makes that a really difficult task.

Detail of the Ridges inside the Pig-Hole FF’s Barrel for Added Stability

Along with the unfolded size means that the Pig-Hole FF is as toy for really experienced and greedy ass pigs whos hole have been properly loosened up during the scene. But the new design also helps such sloppy holes: Since the length only marginally increased compared to the massive diameter growth, the slopes of the taper are steeper, meaning it will also stay in place more easily. This is also necessary because despite the larger holes on both ends, the thicker material requires actually a bit more strength to fist through the Pig-Hole FF. Again, the good thing for a real stretch pig is that fist fucking with a Pig-Hole FF wrapped around a hand is blissfully intense!

Detail of the Pig-Holes‘ Opening Hole. You can see the Larger Opening and Thicker Wall of the Pig-Hole FF

Being a tunnel plug, you can also do the fun things with the Pig-Hole FF which an open hole offers: Pour in liquids, close it with a plug (my recommendation: Square Peg Acron; the ridge just about the taper almost works like a lock) or make the bottom incontinent for a bit and forcing him to wear a diaper.

Where to buy?

You can get the Pig-Hole FF at Mr S for $124.95 in the USA or Regulation for £109 in the EU.

SqaurePeg Peg Away Putty

The Square Peg Peg Away Putty’s Putty (left) and Activator (right)

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

What is Peg Away Putty for?

There are many great ass toy manufacturers out there who produce an incredible number of different toys for every kind of ass, kink and fantasy. Yet each ass is different, each bottom’s “itch” is placed somewhere else. For this kind of situation, Square Peg introduced their Peg Away Putty. As the name says, it is a putty you can mold to alter the shape of your silicone (and ONLY silicone, best platinum silicone!) toys to fit your needs best. You can also create entire toys from scratch, starting from sounds over what Square Peg calls “bands” which you can put on your wrist for fisting or your toys to add texture up to entire plugs and dildos though this will be a pricy endeavor.

Detail of the Putty and Activator

What do you get?

Each set consists of two containers: One with an opaque white activator for curing the silicone and one with the colored putty. This putty comes in all typical Square Peg colors and firmnesses: The iconic bronze and graphite in supersoft, in firm the classic black but also in white, blue red, yellow, green, pink, brown, purple, orange and grey. The entire container does not need to be used at once. Just take as much putty and activator as you need and close the container afterwards. You also get a manual which explains how to use the putty correctly (and which I have misplaced).

How do you use it?

Before you start actually using it on toys, I recommend playing with the putty without the activator to get a feeling for the material, how it behaves, how you could shape it and how to mold it on the toy. Without the activator it won’t cure so you can play around with it, try a different shape and start over again.

The Square Peg Pegger Extractor with More Putty Sever Ridges

When you have gathered enough experience, realized your idea in vitro without the activator and got a feeling how much putty you need for your project, the toy, surface and hands need to be prepared. All surfaces coming in contact with the putty must be grease and dirt free. So I recommend washing everything with a degreasing dish soap. When you are from the USA I recommend the simple Dawn Ultra (NOT the ones with lotion or special smell or else), in Germany I use either Pril or Fit. The putty should best be used with well cleaned bare hands, because gloves can be covered in stuff which can hinder the curing process. Also, the putty comes off the hands so easily, you do not need gloves. If you have very sensitive hands, Square Pegs offers special glove which are made to work with the putty.

To ensure a proper curing and bonding, you have to use equal parts of putty and activator. This means you will need half the putty amount from your in vitro tests. Now knead both elements on a smooth surface like a glass cutting borad until you get a homogenous mixture. And then the shaping starts. Like good pizza dough, the mixture is very elastic and tends to return to its original shape. So it needs a bit of beating and stretching until it maintains the desired shape. Wrapping it around plastic tubes helps with that. Once the final shape is reached, either gently yet firmly attach the putty to the existing toy or add texture. Now the toy needs to rest for at least three hours for the curing and bonding to take place – I recommend letting it sit over night – and then your new toy is ready to go.

Peg Away Putty Used to make the  Pegger Extractor’s Rim more Blunt

So much for the technical part. But how does it feel to work with it? To be honest, I am not the most handy person and I was afraid to use the Peg Away Putty. But the playing around with the putty helped a lot and showed me how easy it is. When altering a toy, I recommend taking it easy and not add too much material. Especially when it comes to adding texture to a toy, even little and subtle additions can have a big affect on how the toy feels; adding a bit of girth with a steep slope can turn an easy fucker into a hard struggle.

The Peg Away Putty comes in different package sizes from 1 oz to 4 oz with the price ranging from $14.95 to $44.94. Just take a look at the range at Mr S and Regulation which set fits your project best.

SquarePeg Mega Milk’it

Form: Prostate Massager/ Plug
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.

Vendor: Mr S Leather (USA) & Regulation (UK)

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.
