Fetters Scrotum Strap & Weight Anchor Strap

The Fetters Scrotum Strap & Weight Anchor Strap

Vendor: Regulation

Sometimes a review takes strange ways until it gets published here. Last week I have gotten a message asking for my opinion in these two toys. Having been using them for years, I wanted to send him the link to the corresponding review. But it turns out: Despite having been using them for years, I have never reviewed them! Let’s fix that!

Both Straps Unrolled

Construction

The design of the Scrotum Strap is quite simple: It is a 355mm long strap of belt leather. The lower 130mm length is 30mm wide, forming the body which then tapers to 220mm long and 15mm wide belt. Through the belt 7 holes with a 15mm center-to-center spacing are punched of which only 5 are usable. Onto the body a locking post and two 13mm wide d-rings under a slap of leather are riveted. Between the locking post and the first d-ring is a slot to thread the belt through. The Scrotum Strap comes with a pad lock.

The Sharp, Undeburred Edge of the Scrotum Strap

The basic design is also reflected in the material and manufacturing: The belt leather is stiff and neither burnished nor deburred. This means the edges are sharp until the leather is well worn in which will take quite a while. Since I rarely use the Scrotum Strap due to having several other toys to choose from, mine is still stiff and a bit sharp. If you want to speed up the breaking in-process, rub a little bit of neatsfoot oil on it and knead the toy while watching TV.

The Weight Anchor Strap borrows the basic design idea of the Scrotum Strap but develops it further. The body of the toy is made out of two layers of soft garment leather. The height depends on which version you get: The one buckle which I have has a 33mm tall body, the two buckle a 56mm tall one. On each side of the body a 180mm long and 14mm wide strap of belt leather is riveted. At the bottom a Ø19mm welded o-ring is riveted.

The Overlapping Body Protects Ball Skin from Getting Caught by the Belt

It is closed around the balls about the same way as the Scrotum Strap. On top of one strap a 240mm long and 14mm wide belt is riveted perpendicularly, while on top of the other a small roller buckle is. The belt goes through a slot inside the body and thus grips around the cuff wrapping around the sack’s neck.

Just like on the previous toy, the manufacturing is a bit basic: The perpendicular edges of the body is just bare cut-off leather without any treatment, the slot is not whipped. Since both toys are basic CBT toys you can overlook these shortcoming but considering the price compared to a set of cuff-style restraints I would have expected more.

Playing with the Scrotum Strap & Weight Anchor Strap

The Padlock to Close the Scrotum Strap

As simple as the design is, it is ingenious: You wrap the body around the sack’s neck, thread the belt end through the slot and tighten it until you reach a snug yet comfortable fit. Then you thread the belt through the d-rings and close the toy by locking it onto the sub.

As long as the leather is not broken in, the adjustment process is cumbersome: Due to the stiffness it takes some adjustment to get it around the balls tightly. Threading it through the d-rings is a nightmare because of the friction. For me, this created a bit of a vicious cycle because I had easier to use toys which I then preferred and thus never broke the Scrotum Strap in.

This is a shame because it is a nifty little toy with much potential. The smallest diameter of it is 24mm, the largest 42mm so it covers a wide range of possible scrotums. As written above due to the position of the locking pin and one of the d-rings you cannot tighten it further than the third to last hole. A friend of mine has been using his Scrotum Strap for half a decade on a regular basis. It is broken in and thus soft. He uses it with some of his slave as a reminder of belonging by simply locking it around the balls for a day or so. Unlike a chastity cage, the Scrotum Strap will not impair any everyday activity but once locked cannot be taken off. So it is a nice, psychological reminder that someone else has control over you when a locked collar, wrist or ankle chain are not an option. If you are a bit of a sadist, locking the Scrotum Strap around your sub’s balls can speed up the breaking in process. The warmth and moisture of the junk in combination with the movement will soften the leather up over time. Until then, it will be uncomfortably to wear and create some abrasions and burns.

A Shackle can be Used to Increase the Capacity of the D-Ring

For more action oriented play, the Scrotum Strap is a secure and tight anchor point on the balls. So in a full body lockdown it can be used to tie even the balls in place. In more mobile settings, I like to connect the ankle restraints to it to restrict the sub’s movement. Of course this also works with wrist restraints but my favorite is connecting the Scrotum Strap with a Handlock for minimal slack wrist-to-ball restraints.

If you want to connect the Scrotum Strap with another restraint bear in mind since the belt is threaded through the d-rings the space between the apex and the belt is only 5mm! While this might be enough for a padlock, if you want to use carabiners use them together with shackles. Another alternative are folded nylon tension straps.

The O-Ring at the Bottom of the Anchor Staps

The Weight Anchor Strap attaches to the body the same ways as the previous toy: Thread the belt through the slot and around the body to the roller buckle. Since there is not friction and the ball cuff’s body is made out of soft leather that easily wraps around the scrotum, this is quite easy. On this toy you can use all the punched holes creating a internal diameter between 27mm and 42mm. If your sub has smaller or less meaty balls, you can punch additional holes to tighten the restraint even further. For meatier balls, you have to just give it a try since the body is very soft and only stiff in the middle where the belt runs around, I managed to put the toys even on bull balls.

The softness in combination with the wide range of adjustability enables a really secure fit that is comfortable over extended periods of time even the tug on the toy is big. As the name of the toy suggests, it is made for weights. Most people use parachutes for this kind of play but they are only good for so much pulling force. If you add a momentum by letting the weight swing, the snap fastener either pops open or a ball slips through the thin ring the parachute creates. This does not happen with the Weight Anchor Strap. Since it comfortably yet securely compresses the ball’s neck, it stays in plays up to weight amounts way beyond which is medically advisable (the maximum amount of weights I have suspended from a sub’s scrotum using this toy were 10+kg. Don’t try this at home!). If you want to use climbing carabiners instead of threading rope or tension straps through the o-ring, you will have create a larger opening using shackles like with the above reviewed toy.

The Anchor Straps‘ Roller Buckle

The straps are riveted to slightly to the body that they don’t move. But they are long enough to allow for a pendulum movement. The movement stops quicker than on more freely hanging chains but the stiffness also transfers more of the kinetic energy onto the balls for an intense tug.

Of course you can also incorporate the Anchor Straps into bondage layouts by connecting them to restraints. But I found that the straps and the o-ring create more slack than the Scrotum Strap. But this is a very minor point of a toy hoarder. If you just have this one, it will perfectly work for tying down the balls or limit the subs movement by connecting either or both ankle and wrist restraints with this ball cuff.

What to Gift ToyTorture?

Roll call! Who wants to get me something for my birthday? Nobody? Well, if anyone should change their mind, you still have six weeks to get me something 😉

The House of Bascanio Padded & Locking M5 Muzzle

Seriously, question I get asked most in online chats or conversations in bars or clubs is “You have tested everything! Is there any sex or kink toy you still need or want?” The easy part first: Need? Most certainly not! As much as I am fascinated by cleverly designed kink toys, with a bag of pervertables I can recreate the same effect though not the feeling! But because I am fascinated by cleverly designed kink toys there is a neverending lists of toys I would love to add to my collection. The selection is highly subjective because these are the toys I find personally intriguing without considering review requests. Before I write my top 5ish toys, please note: I could write an entire volume of anal toys I want. So I am leaving these toys out.

The Many, Many D-rings on the M5 Muzzle

House of Bascanio M5 Muzzle

If you have been following my bondage reviews you know, the only thing that is better than a D-ring are MOAR D-rings. The M5 Muzzle takes this to the max. How many D-rings can you fit on a head? Apparently the answer is “At least 15!” Are those all necessary? Most certainly not! Judging from my experience, 9 is the max to get the same level of fettering. Maybe even 7 are enough. But who cares? The ingenuity and craftsmanship that have cumulated into the creation into this unique piece of bondage gear in combination with the thick padding make me want to add this muzzle to my collection and put on CERTAIN subs (you know who you are).

Since the M5 Muzzle is such an extravagant piece of bondage gear, I am actually unsure about the design. Would I like it two-tone with red padding? Or just black with red stitching? But I guess in the end the practical pervert  in me would win and go for an all black I can easily clean and treat with black leather oil.

The Mr S Leather Savage Sucks Hood

And apparently my personal taste coincides with you, my reader’s taste. Looking at my little Excel sheet there are literally hundreds of review requests for this toy. So gifting me the toys would be kind of a public service.

Mr S Leather Savage Sucks and Asylum Hood

The Savage Sucks is the perfect addition to the M5 Muzzle! Dehumanizes the wearer, turn him into a multi-layer leather gimp. And if you need his tongual service, unlock the muzzle, let him serve and lock his mouth up again.

The Mr S Leather Asylum Hood

Being perforated it also is the perfect piece of gear for all those subs of me who wants or need to be anonymous. To shatter a common misconception: Even dom tops enjoy the occasional endorphin rush of being handled and played with. Sadly due to Fans-sites their livelihood depends on their image of being pure dom sadists and thus cannot be seen in public riding the pleasurable waves of pain and degradation. A perforated hood they can see through but nobody can see their face would be a great tool for those special Quälgeist visits.

To break with my rule of only five toys, here is another piece of Mr S headgear which I’d love (or hate) to have: The Asylum Hood. Hoods have never been my favorite kind of toy. I simply love to see faces react to induced sensations, lick sweat of the neck of have my ears nibbled. But I also like to have my head played with while intricate things are done. That’s why I love the Asylum Muzzle so much (along with the Bishop Head Harness). A full hood with the same features would be awesome! Just the thought of having soft, rich smelling leather hug my skull while the top adjust the many roller buckles is giving me a boner!

The Only Rubber Catsuite I would Consider

Regulation Streak Side Panel Catsuit

This item is a shocker: Fetish GEAR on ToyTorture.com? A rubber cat suit for ToyTorture? Especially a neck entry one?!

Calm down! Let me explain. Yes, to be honest: Full coverage does not do much for me. For me the tension of natural skin meeting artificial rubber is a very strong kink! Thus black cat suits are just boring for me. Especially should entry ones with their smooth chest. But a guy needs options and should broaden his horizon. So I might give a rubber cat suit a try with this one.

Maybe accessorize with the rubber bulldog harness, biceps restraints for added texture, a nice pair of sneakers and Rubber@Easter LAB can come. Naturally I would choose a black suit with red panels and strips to really pop when I am lying in the dark in the wellness hammock.

Small and Evil – The Fetters Headtrap

Since I am a Blackstyle Medium, what should I choose with Regulation?

Fetters Headtrap

Why this toy is so great, I have already written in the Christmas gift tip. Why I need this toy is easy: My playroom only looks big. With the slopes of the roof it actually has a very small usable footprint. So I need toys and furniture to make the best out of the space.

And for the Headtrap I have already found the perfect spot to store it in between use – or to store my sub away. Sadly, I have not yet had a chance to play with this piece of bondage furniture personally. But from the looks of it, it can probably easily been turned into a spanking horse. Or for party situation, it would be a perfect parking sport for the designated piss gimp.

A Basket of Oxballs Toys

In the past year, Oxballs has released so many great toys I am dying to add to my collection. But  before we come to those:

Oxballs, release the Ergo Plug Monster – NOW! I volunteer as a production sample testee!

The Oxballs Pig-Hole Squeal – Big and Textured, just what I like

In all seriousness: The shape of the Ergo Plug always looked tempting but even in its largest size, it was too small for most ass pigs. The first time I have heard about a Monster size to be in development was in late July/ early August of 2020. Sadly, developing new molds for silicone toys is not as easy as one might think. So cognitively I can understand why it took so long. But anally I crave to get stuFFed with this toy, so I hope Oxballs releases it rather sooner than later. And in rather firmer than softer silicoen.

The Matching Airhole Plug – More Texture

Speaking of soft silicone: The Pig-Hole Squeal and Airhole Plug. The first in black, the latter in red. Perfect combination for a texture junkie like me! And would be a much needed addition to my collection of six Oxballs tunnel plugs. I have already cleared the space in my toy shelve for three new Oxballs anal toys so I am waiting.

If you have been following this website since its earlieast beginnings in the fall of 2012 you know how much love I have had for ball stretching toys. Especially from Oxballs! Stretchers, stackers, slings, splitters – you name it. I have it, I love them. Or rather loved them. Having lost my left testicle last summer and waiting for getting a prosthesis some time this summer, I don’t know if I will ever love these toys like I have before.

… and the matching Vibration Bullets

So these toys represent hope for me! Hope that my beloved lowhangers will look and at least in the hands of another man feel the same! Hope that with their weight the skin will extend again despite the big scar and make my junk as bulky again as it was yesteryear.

The Squeeze is one of my fav ball stratchers because it combines tug with stretch. Adding weights to it or vibration? Count me in!

Is it a ball stretcher? Is it a parachute? It is both!

But I might need some training until I can fit the Squeeze again and here the Tug comes in. I already loved Oxballs Slung though it was a bit cumbersome to put on. This looks better, more fun and screams for “Put me on while lying in a sling, connect me to a thread above the spread bar and let a weight dangle!” This is very specific for my playroom layout but since this is my personally wish list, I shamelessly force my fantasies on you!

 

So much for my dream gifts for what we in Germany call half-round birthday. Let’s see what I will be unwrapping Friday morning in six weeks.

Fetters Leather Arm Binder

The Fetters Arm Binder

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

The center piece of the Arm Binder is a restraint body made out of soft and deliciously smelling garment leather. While it gently wraps around the sub’s body, at 1mm thickness it is sturdy and strong! The restraint roughly has the shape of a sleeping bag’s bottom. The opening at the top is 42cm wide and tapers over the length of 69cm to 12cm at the bottom. This lavish amount of room allows the restraint to be used on all body types, from beefy muscle bulls to slender twinks.

To adjust the sizing and increase the level of bondage, there are two mechanisms. On top of the body there is a rivet reinforced lacing ladder which goes 2/3 down. It is underlaid with a sheet of leather so hair or skin folds do not get caught in the lacing. Onto the back three loops – one on top, on 1/3 and one 2/3 down – out of sturdy bridle leather are riveted. Through these loops belts with roller buckles are threaded. Again, the belts are long yet the holes are punched so far that they are long enough for bigger builds yet can be closed tightly for petit physiques.

The restraint body is fettered to the torso with a simple X-harness using roller buckles. One pair sits on each side of the lacing, another of the leather sack’s back. The roller buckles are held in place by riveted leather loops for a secure fit. The loops are made out of the same 30mm wide bridle leather belts as the harness and the tightening belts.

The Roller Buckle on the Stiff Version of the Bridle Leather Belts

And now we are coming to a part difficult part in this review: The bridle leather on the Arm Binder I am basing this review on is stiff and uncomfortable. Because of this I reached out to Regulation/ Fetters and they assured me that they switched the leather to a softer and thus more flexible variety earlier this year (I have gotten my Arm Binder in March 2021). To make my Arm Binder more usable, I actually commissioned new belts and the harness in the new, softer leather but due to Covid I have not yet gotten these.

Long story short: As you can read below, I like the Arm Binder a lot because they are a hot and kind of degrading toy. But especially for long term scenes, they are only fun when the softer leather is used! As soon as I have gotten the new belts and harness, I will annex this review. As always, if you want to be kept in the loop about such things, follow me on Twitter.

Lateral Belts for Extra Secure & Tight Bondage

Playing with the Leather Arm Binder

Putting the Arm Binders on is easy: The sub simple needs to put his arms behind his back and you pull the restraint body over them. To make it easier, the bottom should fold his hands. The bottom of the leather sack is quite tight yet it is spacious enough for larger hands. But if you want to tie the sub’s hands together, leather cuff restraints or special ones like the awesome Fetters Handlock take up too much space. So if you feel the need to tie them, I recommend soft Velcro quick restraints. But to be honest: Such additional restraints are purely for the mindfuck. Once the harness and the restraint body are connected, there is little chance for the sub to get his arms free.

For safe and long-term play, the harness should rest lightly against the torso and the restraint body should hang as loosely as the arms would. There should be a little wiggle room so the sub can move his shoulders before they become stiff and to ensure circulation. You can tighten the straps more, pulling the arms up. This is a form of stress bondage and should not be done over extended periods of time and monitored closely. The same rules apply to the belts. Tighten them loosely for lightly restraining the sub while increasing both the bondage feeling and inescapability. Tighten them more and you end up with intense stress bondage. Please keep in mind that through the leverage of the belt you can quickly wield strong force on the elbows and shoulders. Both are frailer joints so be careful and don’t overdo it force and time wise!

The Lacing for a Tight Fettering

So much for health and safety. Now on to the fun part. If you fetter the belts in a non-stress tightness, the Leather Arm Binder are great “mobile” restraints. You can put your sub in them for extended periods of time, render his arms useless while he can walk around and has his body more or less exposed for play.  This makes the arm binder the perfect bar/ club restraint. Unlike straitjackets which are equally comfortable over long periods of time but limit the access to the torso, the bottom in these can be easily be expose to chest and gut punching, TT or CBT. Naturally, it is a good piece of bondage gear for group scenes when a sub needs to be “parked”.

On my first look at the toy, I would have wished for D-rings on the side. But in play, I rarley missed them. In the cases where I had to secure my bottom laterally, I simply used carabiners or shackles on the tightening belts as anchor points. Yes, D-rings would be more refined and keep the restricting belts from movement. But they are not essential for enjoying this restraint. As I have written: The Arm Binder is a perfect toy for mobile play. If you want to secure a sub safely laterally on his arms I would recommend  Fetters’ Full Sleeve Bondage Mitts which have plenty of D-rings.

At the Bottom there is a D-Ring for multiple Nifty and Nasty Intricacies

The one D-ring at the bottom is a nifty one though. For a bit of CBT, it can be connected to a chastity cage or a ball stretcher. Since the arm movement is quite limited, the chances of an accident are low. My preferred bondage layout though was running a piece of rope or chain through it to for connecting two ankle restraints. This will properly limit his step range and keeps him from running away. If you want to humiliate him even more, use the D-ring as the anchor point for the leash instead of the collar, focusing the attention onto his groin.

Finally, if you sub needs fuck machine training, this is a good piece of bondage gear to keep the arms out of interferings way when the sub is on a bench. Even when bound in doggy position, the arms can be used to pull forward and escape the machine a bit. With the arms behind the back (preferably lightly suspended upwards) there is little wiggle room. And quite frankly, the image is very hot!

Conclusion: Effective body restraint from light to stress bondage.

Fetters Portable Bondage Board

The Fetters Portable Bondage Board

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

The product name of this piece of bondage equipment is pretty descriptive: It is a bondage board that can be folded in the middle.

First, let’s look at its bottom. Two wide and sturdy hinges keep both sides aligned with each other even during heavy play and fold together smoothly. In order not to damage the precious hardwood floor in Fidelio-passworded play mansions four thick rubber bumpers are stapled onto the cloth-lined bottom (if you are too young for this reference, watch “Eyes Wide Shut”). On each side of the top there is a powerful neodymium magnet keeping both sides securely together when folded. In order to carry the board around comfortably, a piece of nylon strap is mounted on the middle of each side. On one side a nice stainless steel Fetters badge is screwed between the two ends of the carrying loop. Folded together the board is 53.5cm tall, 60cm wide and about 10cm deep. Unfolded you naturally get a bondage surface of 60x107cm.

The D-rings Folded Up

The body of the board is made out of sturdy wood boards padded with thick firm yet comfortable foam. The play surface on the top is either lined with leather or a material called Rubluxe which is a rubberized fabric that is both oil- and waterproof. For fettering D-rings with an inner width of 39mm, inner height of 32mm and almost absurd wire strength of 6mm are used. They are mounted to the board putting each below a wide and thick piece of bridle leather which is hold in place with four screws. There are six D-rings on each side and one at each end. So in total there are a whopping 14 bondage points around the board.

Due to all this heavy duty materials and workmanship the board weighs 10kg.

The Footprint of the Folded Bondage Board

Playing with the Portable Bondage Board

Most subs I have introduced to this piece of bondage equipment where initially skeptical. Could such relatively compact piece of gear work as a secure basis for bondage? The torsional stiffness of the hinges, the thick and sturdy boards and massive D-rings which are massively mounted onto the board in combination with a tight fettering allow for little wiggle room. So despite being portable and relatively light, it is a good, secure piece of bondage furniture! These are good news especially for those who travel a lot or have to store away their play gear below a bed or in a wardrobe once the session is over. One of my testees bought his one especially for play parties and cons. He likes to play public but wants a piece of furniture of his own when the provided play furniture is occupied or when there is only little space, for example on the side lines of a mosh.

Most people will probably only use the Portable Bondage Board folded open. But even folded together and using only one side, it is a nifty piece of play furniture. Due to the smaller footprint, it easily fits in the corner of a room and thus works perfectly as a slave parking spot. Despite resting on padding, there is little rocking or movement so a sub can safely stand on it, his ankles and maybe even balls being tied to the D-rings. But the area of just half a board is even large enough for a sub to kneel down onto. This way you can of course tie the ankles, thighs and wrists to the boards for an even more intense bondage scenario.

The Fetters Badge and Left the Small yet Powerful Neodymium Magnet

Of course the board shines the most when lying down. It is long enough to cover the torso and the thighs of most subs (up to about 1.90m body height) so it covers most joints and limbs. There are countless different positions you can tie your sub to it: From lying and sitting over kneeling to standing, from comfortable long term bondage over painful stress positions. There are some easy to recreate examples on Regulation’s product page. But the Portable Bondage Board encourages you to be creative and push the limits of your sub’s flexibility. I even managed to tie two subs on the same board, kneeling either back to back or facing each other. If you then introduce a flexible double ended dildo or a pair of nipple clamps, you can create very interesting and intense play on a little space.

A Jimsupport Rim placed on the Bondage Board

For the actual bondage process, you can use different means. If you don’t want to add additional restraints, you can use rope or my beloved Velcro quick restraints. The D-rings are large enough to house several ropes at the same time. Their weldseam is below the leather flap so the ropes run smoothly through the D-rings. When using cuff style leather, rubber or neoprene restraints, the D-rings are wide enough to thread a restraint’s belt directly through the D-ring. While this limits the restraint’s and thus the sub’s movement the most, in case of an emergency you would have to cut the belt itself, destroying the restraint. Of course, human health and security always goes over gear preservation. So my recommended way of attaching restraints to the bondage board is using tension straps. Inexpensive to replace if cut yet almost as effective as directly connection restraint and board.

A question I get asked in almost every reader question is “Which lining material should I choose?” For my board, I chose leather and being made by Fetters it did not disappoint: It is soft yet feels strong, the grain is subtle but noticeable and the smell is intoxicatingly good. If you “just” want to fetter someone to the board, it is a good choice! But leather is a little bit higher maintenance, does not like wetness or messy stuff. So if your bottoms leak a lot of pre-cum or you want to get piggy go for Rubluxe. And to all those fellow pigs out there: The space between the D-rings is about the clearing between the legs of a Jim Support Adjustable Rim Chair, depending on the seat height. Simply fix the legs with tensions straps to the D-rings, maybe fix your bottom to the D-rings and pig out.

Speaking of Rubluxe: The bondage board is also a great fisting base when traveling. The lining is thick enough for a bottom to go both comfortably in doggy or lying on his back. The board itself is a stable base even on soft hotel mattresses. When lying on his back, the combination of ankle restraints and tension straps anchored on the D-rings next to his head can create a travel sling-like layout without putting draft on the bottom’s neck. But for this play, the Rubluxe surface is clearly the superior one for his kind of play. Of course you can put a pad below the fistees ass when using the leather version. But as always, lube finds its way around and as soon as the bottom starts to piss you are in for an intense cleaning session.

The Hinge

Speaking off piss, the rubber bumpers on the bottom give your 7mm ground clearance.  So a Rubluxe covered bondage board can also be used to detain a urinal bottom as long as there is no standing piss which could soak the board from the bottom.

Since the board must not fold when putting pressure on the seam in the middle, it folds inwards not outwards. This means that the padded surface is always on the outside, exposed to potential damages. To protect these sides, I highly recommend ordering the canvas carrying bag for £35 along with the board, especially when you are going to travel with your board!

Conclusion: Effective and versatile yet portable piece of bondage furniture.

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer II – Fetters Headtrap

Jesse bound in the Fetters Headtrap

Last year I have already recommended a piece of nimble and nifty bondage furniture for people who cannot or do not want to have a playroom or who travel to events often. This got so much positive feedback that today’s gift recommendation is just that. And again, the Headtrap comes from Fetters which seems to become a specialist for small footprint bondage furniture.

The Parts of the Fetters Headtrap

The Headtrap is basically a small cage without the bars on the side. There is only a piece to trap the head. The rest of the fettering is done attaching restraints to the anchor points, one in each corner. Since there are no bars, the limbs can be places outside of the frame. So with a footprint of just 45x50cm or 50×75.5cm – depending if you put the cage upside or longside – you have a effectively immobilized your sub. The Headtrap comes with a tickly padded plate so you can sit inside the bars. If you add the included locking wheels, you can even push him around. Perfect for a party setting or if you do a long-term scene and want to take your sub with you when you leave the room.

From the pictures it looks that to assemble you just need to tighten 8 screws which seems quick. On the product it says it collapses to five flat pieces so it should be easy to store and if you have a car somewhat easy to transport to your event hotel room (I have seen rim chair on hotel luggage carts at Folsom Europe so…).  Sadly there is no word on the weight. So I guess one of you will have to buy one and tell me 😉

The Fetters Headtrap costs £549 at Regulation in London.

The Topped Toys Mordax

Vendor: Regulation/ Mr S

Construction

Mordax starts out with a dullish realistic glans that peaks out from a foreskin-like cover.  The shaft is textured with scale-like bulges that come together in a clapboard-like cluster in the back. The bulges drops are quite steeply and range from 2.5mm depth at the top up to 7mm in the middle. Two big realistic balls form the base which gives the toy a secure stand even when riding it hard. Speaking of fucking, at the bottom there is a 10mm hole with threading for attaching Mordax to a fuck machine. The small diameter allows to attach even the small 13mm threaded attachment system some companies use yet the silicone is soft enough for pushing a standard 22mm Vac-u-Lock adapter inside – with some force. The same force is needed to pull the toy off again which cased the silicone around the hole to tear a bit. I have use the adapter only a few times so I have no idea how the situation in the long run. If it should get worse, I will tweet about it.

As all toys from Topped Toys, the Mordax is made out of Shore 00-34 firm platinum silicone. This material is 100% body safe, hypo allergenic toy with a super-smooth surface for easy cleaning and insertion. Slight drawback is that silicone lube must not be used with silicone toys because the silicone oil in it will destroy the material in the long run. You can choose between two colors: Blue or for a little premium a nice marble of red & charcoal that even has a little, very subtle glitter in it.

Mordax‘ Deep Scales

Playing with the Mordax

Topped Toys started out making toys for people who want to train their hole and quickly became popular with beginners. So I often get messages of the Mordax or Erebus is a toy to start out with getting into texture. To be frank, the Mordax is definitively not for beginners! The dullish glans requires a loose hole to slip in. If you can barely take the glans, the rest of the toy will not be much fun because even with much lube the scales will feel painful. My rule of thumb is, if you can comfortably take a Gape Keeper one size larger than the Mordax you chose, you will enjoy this toy.

The densely packed, deep, thick yet soft scales are perfect to stimulate the many nerve endings inside the anus. The texture is so dense that there is now low intensity which gets more and more intense the quicker it goes in and out. Since the material is very bendy and soft, there is not much prostate stimulation, especially on the 90, until you reach the bottom of the shaft. To get so far down Mordax has to go deep. Due to the soft material and the scales, it is very bendy so it will find its way inside your rectum. But: The dull glans need to open up the second sphincter. Once inside your colon, the scales start to stimulate this very sensitive body area – hard!

Mordax‘ dullish glans

Because of this, I recommend getting to know Mordax on your own, learn about alls his kinks and prepare yourself for the intense surprises it has in store. This way you do not surprisingly tense up when it hits a sensitive spot. But once you have reached this point, laying relaxed in the sling and getting vigorously fucked but Mordax is pure bliss!

Where to buy?

Both Mr S and Regulation sell the Mordax only in 105 and 115 for prices between $144.95 to £239 depending on the size and color.

Construction

The Oxballs Pig-Hole is one of the most widely used anal toys in the kink scene. The Deep-2 is a special, extra long version of it.

The Oxballs Pig-Hole Deep

In the lower half the design is almost like on his shorter brother: An oval base surrounds a 40x60mm hoping hole. The base is wide so it does not get accidently sucked into the rectum. An about 40mm and thus almost twice as long neck as on the standard Pig-Hole raise out of the base. Above it sits a barrel shaped body which on the inside is reinforced by grooves so it does not collapse that easily. The body measures 71x85mm on the outside (if you have a technique to measure the inside dimensions, hit me up) so size-wise the Deep-2 sits between the Pig-Hole XL and XXL (or 4 and 5 if you go by the embossed numbers). The biggest difference between the standard and the Deep Pig-Hole is above the body. Out of it raises a tube. Since its top is slanted it is 55mm high on the short and 70mm on the tall side.

Like on all Pig-Holes there is a little relievo with the product name and the size number rising from the base’s rim – just in case you are wondering which size your greedy hole just swallowed.

There is a smaller version out there called the Deep-1 which is about 17% smaller in every dimension and thus too small to fist through for example. I would only recommend buying it when you rectum is too small to fit the Deep-2’s long tube. Otherwise, buy the toys for the hole you want not the hole you have, while respecting your body’s limits, especially depth-wise.

Playing with the Pig-Hole Deep-2

Most important thing first: The Pig-Hole Deep is made for loose holes. Really loose holes! If your hole cannot swallow the tube and the body with ease, you will not have much fun with this toy. While the  standard Pig-Hole can be folded to be pushed through the sphincter, the long tube and the barrel cannot be folded when lubed up. So it either goes in as it is or it doesn’t.

Still with me? Then you are a greedy ass pig and this toy is a good addition to your toy collection! Both the opening and the body are a bit smaller than on the Pig-Hole XXL. Yet a determined fister with maximum medium sized hands can fist through the neck, placing the fist inside the body. Once there, the fun really starts. When he starts to move his wrist and fingers, the end of the tube will stimulate the sensitive mucosa of the rectum. Fisting into the Deep-2 is easier with the blue colored Morph Silicone version which is about 10% softer than the red and black silicone. While this does not sound much, it is a lot! Yet it requires an even looser hole to be inserted.

In really rare cases, the anus and the second sphincter align that the tip pushes through it, sending the bottom into ecstasy.  In this case, the Pig-Hole Deep is a great gateway into the colon, making depth play with toys considerably easier. But this is a unicorn situation just two lucky testee tops each had once.  Another unicorn situation is finding a top with small hands and arms who can push trough all the way – if you have a large enough rectum. A friend of mine has XS hands and managed to do this with his partner. Every movement of his arm and wrist was transferred onto the toy, stimulating anus, prostate and rectum at the same time.

But enough for these borderline and once-in-a-million cases. Even if your top has large hands, the Pig-Hole Deep has much to offer. Twisting the tunnel plug will stimulate the rectum because the slanted top moves over the mucosa. For even stronger stimulation and added pressure on the prostate you can stuff it with other toys; my choice is a SquarePeg Medium Acorn or XL Egg. These toys are perfect for transmitting vibrations. Simply press a massager of your choice – I would recommend a Doxy – and watch your bottom squirm. In theory you can place the massager’s head into the Pig-Hole Deep’s body but I would only recommend that if you have a masochistic sub, a soundproof playroom and your bottom is securely fettered inside the sling (including some form of waist restraints!). The direct stimulation is VERY intense and lead to quick safewording – or hands-free orgasms. It was definitively not my cup of tea but everybody is different.

Spiked Parachute

The Spiked Parachute from Regulation

Vendor: Regulation

Sometimes weird things happen at ToyTorture.com: Following last week’s review of the Tenderizer Paddle, I have gotten a message asking if I have played with the Spiked Parachute from Regulation. Since this toy has been in my toy chest for it feels like forever, I went to my website to copy the review link for my reply. But it turns out: I actually have not yet reviewed this toy! It also turns out that I have some CBT gear from Regulation that I have not reviewed yet, a mistake I will soon correct!

Construction

This toy starts out as a standard parachute design. The double layer leather body is 5cm wide and is close by two snap buttons. There are two sets of male buttons so you can choose between either 2.5cm or 3cm diameter for size of the hole which goes around the neck of your balls. Through rivets three chains are attached to the body which come together in a ring that is large enough to house most tool carabiners. As the name says 24 sets of 5 spikes on the inside set this parachute apart from the tamer versions.

Detail of the Snap Button Closer

Playing with the Spiked Parachute

I have to be honest when I first unpacked this toy I was skeptical: The leather was a bit stiff and the ring to which the chains connect was not welded. But my worries were unfounded: Despite hanging a LOT of weight onto the ring it didn’t open up. This was also a good test for the snap buttons that even under large physical stress of a wiggling bottom or large amounts of weight swinging on them didn’t give in. And after some leather conditioner and warmth the leather of the body softened.

The Anchor Ringer of the Spiked Parachute

This toy works like every other parachute but just with a little interesting twist. Unlike normal parachutes this one works without attaching something onto it. Just put it around the subs balls and let him walk. The movement and friction around the parachute created by the moving legs is enough to cause the spikes to make an impression. Depending on the duration and the amount of movement this can be anything between annoying to agonizing. When you use this toy like a normal parachute a bit of caution is advisable. While the spikes should not break the skin they intensify any draft induced sensation. Usually subs enjoy the moving momentum of weights swinging from their balls but with this toy the added sting can become excruciating after some time. This effect is even more interesting when you tie the parachute just tight enough to a spread bar that the chains are taut. As soon as he starts to move the spikes will dig into his scrotum so he has to calm himself despite the pain in order to make it go away. This is especially fun when you tie the parachute to nipple clamps that will stick to the nipple even when wiggling a lot. The loop of induced sensation is phenomenal.

The Two Rows of Piercing Spikes

I had the most fun with this in a CBT competition with two subs: They had to choose a parachute by just looking at the top. One got a normal one, the other this spiked one and taking turns they had to endure the same strength of stimulation like amount of weight, weights dropping from a certain high until someone safeworded who then received a punishment that the other one determined in advance believe it was for himself (I know I can be evil at time).

Conslusion: Innocent looking toy with an evil twist.
Pro Cons Where to get Price
Spikes enable wide range of sensations from annoying to agonizing Leather is a bit stiff at first Regulation £32.99
Strong enough to deal with relatively large amount of physical force

Tenderizer Wooden Paddle

The Tenderizer Paddle

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

Like many paddles, the paddle’s body has an obround shape that flows into the handle. The body is 90mm wide and 160mm long. While one side is smooth, the other is textured with 9x9mm pyramids that are 4.5mm tall. The handle’s grip area is 115mm long and 33mm wide. At the bottom of the toy the handle flows into a little bulge for a secure grip even in heavy scenes. In the middle of this bulge there is a small hole for a brown leather thread that forms a loop, either for storing the toy or securing it around the top’s wrist.

All edges on this toy have been painstakingly rounded so the toy lies and feels great in the hand. It is made out of a medium brown, light wood. The surface has been carefully sanded yet you can still see and feel a bit of the wood’s grain. To increase this effect the Tenderizer has no clear coating like other wooden impact toys but has been oiled for beautiful, rich and natural surface texture. At 185g the paddle is quite light for a wooden paddle. This is lighter than all aluminum paddles in my collection…

Detail of the Textured Paddle Side

Playing with the Tenderizer Wooden Paddle

… and you can feel that! The pain sensation leans heavily towards sting. The product description promises thud when using the plain side. When lightly tapping and carefully warming up an impact area, there is a bit of light thud. But as soon as you are spanking light you are meaning it, this sensation quickly turns into lightning sharp sting! Hitting completely parallel to the body and with exactly the same force, this side is actually stingier than the textured one.

Like with all textured impact toys, finely dosing the kinetic energy is key to unlocking the true potential of this toy. This starts with sensation play by letting the toy travel over the sub’s body. With almost no pressure, the slight stickiness and abrasion creates a very faint scratching and tingling sensation that depending on the sub will give him goose bumps or send them into a laughing fit. Increasing the pressure can end up with a serious scratching sensation without breaking the skin but maybe some red marks.

The well rounded handle with the Leather Loop

When switching to swinging and hitting, keep in mind that the textured side is not made for warm-up; use the plain one for that. With light to medium tapping the little spikes create a tingling sting. As written above, I was surprised by the intensity of heavier blows. Usually texture on impact toys increases the pain sensation because the air between the paddle and the skin forms a dampening cushion that can escape between the texture’s gaps. Surprisingly this effect is compensated by the material properties of wood: The pyramid tips have rather rounded and flattish tips so the sting is moderated. Until you start to move the paddle in the impact moment. Dragging the texture over the skin while the kinetic energy drives it into the body is stingy! Add to that the “coarse” wood and you have a devilish combination many of my pain pigs enjoy.

The smooth backside of the paddle

One word of warning when playing heavily with this toy: Wood is a higher maintenance material than rubber and aluminum. It is hard to sanitize because it absorbs a bit of the tissue fluid and since it has no clear coating, blood will stain it. So if you play really hard, do not only spray a sanitizer on it but let it lay in the sun for a few days before using it on someone else (alternative: use a UV sanitizer some of you might have bought during the Covid crisis). To keep the paddle as beautiful as it is, I recommend oiling it with olive oil (or a wood oil of your choice) every 6 to 12 months depending on how often you use it. This might alter the wood color and give the toy patina but ultimately it will turn a random paddle into YOUR paddle.

That being said at least for me the feeling of warm, grainy wood in the hand makes up for this work. The handle feels and fits like worry stone. For me as a top there is something sensual in holding a beautiful made, open-grain piece of wood in my hand and playing with it.

Conclusion: Beautifully made wooden paddle for sensations between a laughing fit and lightning-sharp sting.
Pros Cons Where to get Price
Wide range of sensations (though hard to get thud out of it) Being made out of wood difficult to clean and sanetize Regulation £39.99

Fetters Heavy Leather Flogger

The Fetters Heavy Leather Flogger

Vendor: Regulation

Very often I get asked “Where can I get a good, quality flogger, best in Europe?” That is actually a tough question because unlike the USA Europe never developed a big BDSM flogger maker scene. Most of my floggers are made by a flogger maker in New York I have got to know when I studied in the USA. They cost at least four times of this Heavy Leather Flogger and take months to make, an invest most people are not willing to make. So I am quite excited to take a look at a traditionally made flogger that is easily accessible to guys from Europe.

Construction

This flogger is a beautiful example of traditional flogger making: Braided leather knot on the top and bottom knot. Between them a black and red herringbone pattern made out of leather straps covers the 17cm long grip, giving the handle an overall length of 23,5cm. For better storing and not losing the flogger while throwing it, a 14.5cm long braided leather loop is attached to the bottom knot. What surprised me that Fetters uses relatively stiff and sturdy leather for the braiding which usually makes getting it tight and firm difficult. But I was impressed how tight it was which is a good indicator for durability and quality. The flogger is quite well balanced. The mass center is at the bottom of the upper knot which is low enough to keep the wrist from tiring out quickly.

Detail of the Angle Cut Tail End

Into the top knot 25 tails are woven. They are made out of rather stiff black cow hide and have an angle cut at the end. At 55cm overall length they are 4.5cm longer than the “standard” flogger length of 20’’ resp. 50.5cm but this only is important when you are Florentine flogging with a 20’’ in tail flogger. In the knot a 4x2cm leather patch with an embossed Fetters logo is woven. I am not sure about this move because when you tails “break” over this patch, it impacts how they fly. Especially experienced tops will soon learn how hold their flogger to not have this happening or how to compensate. Still, I would have preferred this patch elsewhere.

All things considered, I have not yet found this level of craftsmanship and attention to detail for this price. So from a pure manufacturing side, this flogger offers incredible value for money.

Detail of the Knot with the Fetters Logo Patch

From a technical point of view, this flogger is good for novice tops getting into flogging. The tails fly well which makes the aim easy. The mass center at the top knot allows the tails to gain momentum when wielding in laying-8-shaped circles so once you have established a pattern, the flogger guides the throwing arm.

But from a pain perspective this one is not for the faint of heart. Fetters chose a stiffer variety of cow hide, yet not as stiff (and thus severe) at Latigo leather. Unlike Latigo this cow hide is flexible and flows and flies really nicely yet it is far from soft. Adding that to the medium weight of the leather it leans a bit towards sting. Additionally the edges are a bit firm and the rough side of the leather is relatively coarse for a flogger. And finally, the tips are angle cut so when they hit, they have an extra bit. Furthermore, angle cut will give you the most acceleration and thus most strong impact sensation.

Detail of the Bottom Knot and Loop

This doesn’t make the flogger bad! It is awesome toy for masochists, a mid- to end-scene toy when the endorphins are flowing and a skilled top will be able to get some thud out of it. But for people starting out with flogging or not hard-core masochists, I strongly advice to use a different, softer flogger for warm up, like the Bare Leatherworks Buffalo one.

Despite the overall roughness of tails, I was surprised how relatively little they color. Of course the impact area will turn red quickly but being medium-weight bruises even on delicate areas like the ass and thigh are unlikely. Despite the sharp tail edges and angle cut tips I was actually surprise how little scratches and welts this flogger produced. So if you are looking for a meanish impact toy that leave relatively little marks after a scene, it is a good one to go with.

Finally a little word on availability: Since this product is handmade, it is rarely available in large quantities. This flogger has been on my watch list for over 2 years and it has been sold out most of the time. So if you are interested in this flogger, I highly recommend setting an e-mail alert to get notified when it is back in stock!

Conclusion: Extremely competitively priced, well made and handling flogger to deliver a stingy sensation.
Pros Cons Where to get Price
