Feeling Knotty – Non-Anthro Toys with Bottom Bulges

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

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

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

What are knots and why are they so popular?

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

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

Comparing the Knot Profile of the Regular and the Big Kevin

Which “neutral” knotted toys are there?

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

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

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

Detail of the Flowing yet Challenging Thick Elements of the Blunger

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

The SquarePeg Poppers

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

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

Size comparison of the different Ergo Plug Sizes

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

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

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

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

The Topped Toy Hilt 115

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

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

The Topped Toy Hilt 115

Vendor: Topped Toys

Construction

The Hilt is made out of the best material possible for an anal toy: Platinum silicone. This kind of silicone is 100% body safe and hypo allergenic. Its super smooth surface makes it not only easy to clean and insert but keeps bacteria from settling.

The toy comes either in blue or their signature Forge Red, a marble of red and charcoal-steel which I like a lot! It brings a sexy, brooding atmosphere to the play. Being a marble and thus a bit more difficult to cast, the Forge Red toys costs 10CAD more but like all silicone toys it will last you a lifetime so it is a worthwhile investment! Regardless of the color, the silicone has a firmness of Shore 00-34 which is quite soft.

The Hilt comes in three sizes. For this review I tested the Hilt 115, the other sizes were supplied by friends who have the other sizes in their playroom.

Size Glans Diameter Shaft Diameter Above Knot Knot Diameter Neck Diameter Base Insertable Length Overall Lenght
95 63x55mm 73mm 56mm 75x80mm 52mm 85mm 225mm 265mm
115 68x59mm 76mm 57mm 91x98mm 62mm 103mm 240mm 280mm
125 68x59mm 69mm 69mm 99x106mm 65mm 112mm 260mm 300mm

The Hilt’s Glans with the Ridge in the Middle and the „Hook“ on the Back

Playing with the Hilt

The Hilt starts out with an oval glans. Unlike other toys which have a smooth and rounded tip, this one has a ridge in the middle. At the back it has a hook-like drop and around it runs a ridge that flows into the top of the shaft and forms a ventral groove there. The shaft itself quite voluminous with bulges on the side. The smooth, flowing lines make it an interesting and not too challenging toy to ride – once you have taken the popping glans. But this soft and stimulating ride does little to prepare you for what’s to come.

Compared to other toys, the top of the knot is very flat and wide. There is no steep slope gently seducing your hole to open up to the maximum diameter. Either it is loose enough of the knot will jam! To this adds the softness of the material. Unlike firmer material (Shore A5 and up) which can force the sphincter open, the soft Shore 00-34 silicone will rather flatten and this increase the diameter instead of popping through this sphincter. What makes the knotting even more extreme and challenging is that the knot sits perpendicular to the shaft. For a thorough pre-stretch I recommend to twist and turn the shaft to loosen up the hole as good as possible. That being said, I consider myself an experienced fistee and it took me a couple of weeks until I knotted my Hilt 115. It was a blissful experience but took some work and stretching. So this is definitively not a beginner’s toy but for the real ass pigs out there!

The Flat and Wide Knot of the Hilt

An old and tired fister’s bon mot about big plugs is “When it fits, it sits” and the Hilt is not different. After the maximum diameter it tapers conically and relatively steeply towards the neck. But the anuses of most of my testees were so “traumatized” in a good way that they did not want to let go of the toy. And while the conically shape above the neck opens the sphincter up well for the pull-out, the brutish-dull knot requires a VERY loose hole for knot-fucking – and a somewhat alert top. The base is not much wider than the knot yet being not so thick softer. So a greedy, depth-savvy fistee might swallow the base.

On the base is also self-play potential lost with not including a suction cup! The Hilt would be a perfect toy to mount onto the shower wall and fuck yourself with it. On a smooth surface, the base is wide and sticky enough for the Hilt to be ridden. But a bit wide, a bit thicker base with a suction cup or at least a Vac-u-Lock hole would have been A+. Especially considering Topped Toys is marketing the Hilt as a “Rideable Toy”.

Detail of the Ventral Groove and the Bulges on the Shaft

When a skilled top is controlling the toy, the many ridges make the Hilt a prostate stimulation beast! There is the hook at the top of the glans and the glans ridge, the ventral groove and of course the knot. To be honest, it takes some time to get to know the toy so thoroughly and to figure out where and how to twist the Hilt to apply pressure. But once a top has mastered how the toy behaves in his bottom’s rectum it is a nifty too for targeted stimulation.

The silicone’s softness in combination with the concave arching shaft allows the toy’s body to arch easily when it goes deep. This adds to the feeling of fullness in the rectum and increases the prostate stimulation a bit. Some lucky bottoms who’s second sphincter is located in a sweet spot and who are depth experienced will be able to allow the glans to enter the colon. The tapered glans is good for opening up this sensitive body area. But the many ridges and grooves on the upper half of the shaft makes the Hilt delicate for depth play. Because when twisting the toy, the bottom can be easily be pushed over the edge because the stimulation it too intense. Plentiful lubrication is advised!

The Conical Neck and the Round Base of the Hilt

As always with platinum silicone toys, pleases only use it with water- or oil-based lubes. The silicone oil inside silicone lube will disintegrate the toy, making the surface sticky and porous. Overtime, the toy will not be body safe anymore.

After each scene, the Hilt should be cleaned which is easy with silicone toys. Soak them in warm water with dish soap to get the lube off more easily. Once soaked, rub over the toy using your hands or a soft cloth, rinse the toys with warm water and let it dry. If you want to be extra-safe, spray a body safe sanitizer on the toy afterwards.

Where to buy?

Topped Toys sells the Hilt directly for between 135CAD and 225CAD, depending on the size and color.

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

The Topped Toys Spike 105

Construction

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

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

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

Detail of the Spike’s Toothing

Playing with the Spike

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

Detail of the Bumps

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

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

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

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

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

Detail of the Plug-Like Base

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

Where to buy?

Topped Toys sells the Spike directly for between 85CAD and 325CAD, depending on the size and color.

Anal Fist Training 101

tl;dr

Gentle fucking your anus with either the SquarePeg Egg or the Topped Toy Gape Keeper with increasing larger sizes over time will make your hole fistable. Once you more or less easily take a Gape Kepper 93 or XXL Egg you should be able to take a medium size fist.

Ever since I started reviewing non-stim anal toys some 5 years ago, one of the most frequently asked set of question I have gotten is: How do I train my hole to take a fist? Which toys are best for the task? (For finding the perfect anal toy in general look here) Since review-wise I am still in hibernation it is the perfect time to write a comprehensive guide what toys and steps to take to get from a virgin or just dicked ass to a fist-greedy hole.

The Topped Toys Gape Kepper & SquarePeg Egg, my recommended Plugs for Training

Physiology and Psychology of Getting Ready to take a Fist

First, let’s talk about the bodily aspects of fisting. The anus is a ring sphincter, a muscle. In order to make it smooth and willing open up, you need to carefully stretch it on a regular basis. For this I recommend a tandem of two plugs: One the goes in relatively easily to initially open up your hole and make it smooth. The best way to achieve this and accustom your hole to the stretch sensation of a fist, I recommend a gentle fucking with the plugs. Once the hole is opened up then other one should be used to stretch your sphincter. This again is a pushing/ fucking movement against the sphincter until it becomes uncomfortable. Keep the pressure at that point for a short while, then release and push again. Which level of discomfort is acceptable and needed for a good training is highly individual. Approach it carefully, explore what feels right and keep in mind what I write about pain below!

When the larger plug almost goes in initially as easily as the smaller one and you can fuck yourself with it, it is time to make the larger one your start plug and buy a bigger one for stretching. The size difference between the two plugs should be about 10mm to max. 15mm in diameter for two reasons:

  1. If the plug becomes too large, the overall shape gets too “dull” and it just bluntly presses against the sphincter which will not entice it to open up (more in the perfect shape below).
  2. You need a sense of achievement once in a while. Dully pushing a toy against your hole without any noticeable progress gets boring over time and demotivates. But when after two or three weeks of training you finally conquer a toy, you feel accomplishment. Adding to that the awesome feeling when the light pain of stretching turns into pure anal pleasure, there is strong positive conditioning going on. This is the psychological element of hole training!

One Disadvantage of Silicone: It attracts Dust like Nothing Else

The stretching can cause a little dragging pain but must not be intense or pinching or sharp! That is the reason why I recommend hole training on your own because you can best control the degree pf force and angle in which the toy should enter. Furthermore, especially in the beginning your hole will be tender quickly. So a potential play partner will be disappointed. Training does also not need to take long! 10 to 15 minutes every two or three days is enough to make progress. Actually, regular stretching is way better than one hour-long session once every blue moon. And with stretching I mean the gentle fucking movement describe above. There is little training effect in long-term wearing of plugs. It is actually counterproductive. If you wear a plug for extended periods of time, your sphincter will contract again and the mucosa inside the rectum will absorb the lube. Pulling the plug out then, especially when you are untrained can be very painful and cause injuries! The anus can take quite the beating when being relaxed! But if not, it is a very delicate body area.

That is why I like to compare fist training to starting Yoga. When you start out, you might be disappointed how clumsy and stiff you are. But when you keep going, push yourself a little bit and within reason on a regular basis at some point you will be able to touch your toes. And the same way, if you keep to the training regime you ultimately will be able to take a fist.

The SquarePeg Longneck & Mr Hankey Toys El Rey

It is hard to pin down an exact plug diameter when you will be able to take a fist. Small fists could have a very sturdy bone structure while large ones could collapse easily making them easy to take than a smaller one. Also, a human hand will never be as soft and smooth as the squishy silicone currently popular. So the softer the silicone, the larger the plug has to be. But a good rule of thumb is that somewhere around 75mm diameter you should be able a medium glove size hand.

It is important to keep in mind that like in training there is a psychological factor in getting fisting: Allowing another person push his or her fist through your sphincter takes a lot of trust and relaxation. It is not uncommon that the first fist is a strong mindfuck and needs to be taken out right away and the session is then over. Do not consider this a failure! Keep in mind that you can now take a fist and go back to this trail of though with confidence before your next scene. Do not stress out if it does not work out the second or third time right away or at all. Being able to take a fist a not a Boolean event but a wonderful journey you have just reached an important step but which is not nearly over! And there are wonderful things and experiences to explore along the way.

The Bad Dragon Vergil, a Fantasy Dildo good for Anus Stretchig

Choosing the right Toy

Plugs, Dildos & Fantasy Toys

A hand in initial fisting position (pressing all stretched out fingers together) has roughly a cone shape. The diameter gradually increases until the thumb knuckle and then tapers again until the wrist. This double cone-shape which causes a stretch both going in and going out is best recreated in plugs.

I often get asked “Can I also use dildos to train?” Of course you can but the training effect will not be as big. The stretch and training effect basically only occurs when the dildo enters the anus. A dildo is good for getting the anus used to being stretched to a certain diameter (and the friction of the fucking stimulating the many nerve endings inside the anus makes the training enjoyable) but helps little in the quest of taking a fist. There are some dildos which through the shape can help train like the SquarePeg Longneck or Mr Hankey El Rey. Dildos which taper towards the bottom and thus increase the stretch are not really useful because often before you get to a useful stretch you run into depth problems. This means that you need to penetrate the very sensible second sphincter where the colon enters the rectum. This is a challenge especially for deep fisting and definitely a story for another day.

Bad Dragon’s Egg

Many people get into anal stretching because they like the looks or the mind play (I am looking at your Furries! ;)) associated with fantasy toys like from Bad Dragon, Neotori or KnotMe which are often on the larger side of the size spectrum. One of the distinctive features are they elaborate shapes and textures. Sadly, the more texture and the complexer the shape, the harder they are to take. So they are not good training toys. Of course there are exceptions like the Bad Dragon Vergil or their Egg. It is the closest you get to a pure training plug if you are a purely Bad Dragon afficionado but the base shape makes it hard to grip and almost imossible for longterm wear (If you want to learn more about finding the perfect anal toy and how to store and care for it, take a look at my Anal Toys 101).

Top View of the Gape Keeper and Egg to Compare the Steepness

Choosing the right Plug

As already written the training plugs should have a smooth and flowing conical shape both before and behind the equator so they easily go in and out. They should be made out of platinum silicone because its surface is super smooth and easy to clean. Finally, they should have an ergonomic base as a good handle when fucking and naturally come in a large number of sizes. These criteria meet two toys: The SquarePeg Egg and the Topped Toys Gape Keeper. They both have a long-drawn egg shape which makes them perfect for training. Which one you should choose highly depends on your personal preference. At Shore 00-34 Topped Toys uses slightly softer silicone which follows the current trend towards soft toys. With SquarePeg you have the choice of two firmness grades: SuperSoft (in their signature Bronze orange or a middle grey called Graphite) or Firm (only in black). Personally, I prefer firm toys for training because the firm toys “force” the sphincter open a bit more easily (again, choose the force you are comfortable with and do not overdo it!) and the firmness is closer a human hand. The SquarePeg Egg is also steeper and thus goes in a bit more easily. The Topped Toys Gape Keeper is a little bit duller and barrel shaped so it comes a bit closer to simulating the challenge of the thumb knuckle. The SquarePeg base is a bit easier to grab but especially at sizes larger than XL a bit cumbersome. Both models come in a wide variety of sizes so you can find the perfect pairing of fucking+stretching plug. If you can, go to a store, touch and look at the toys to find which fit you best. Of course, my reviews of the SP Egg and TT Gape Keeper are also an excellent point to start 😉

Overview of the Three Different Colors and thus Firmness Degress of SquarePeg Toys

These toys are not inexpensive and I am aware that buying increasingly larger toys is an expensive route to take compared to cheap PVC toys but especially when you leave the realm of mass-commercial sizes (about 60mm diameter) there are not many well-shaped toys to continue your journey towards a fist (And do not get me started on heavy metals and plasticizers in PVC being absorbed by the mucosa in your rectum). Fisting is such a great experience so your hole should be worth it for you! Furthermore, these toy retain a somewhat good second hand value. Or you take my route and hand down some toys to eager bottoms starting the same journey I have been on and keep some if you want to train fistee in the making or need to open up a tense hole.

The SquarePeg Acron with Focus of its Bulge

Then approaching the 70mm mark, there is another toy I recommend for training: The SquarePeg Acorn. Its duller tip is a bit closer to the ergonomics of a hand in fisting position than the perfectly smooth taper of the Gape Keeper and Egg. The duller transition between the body and the neck is also closer to the transition between thumb knuckle and wrist. Around the rim runs a bulge designed to stimulate the prostate and anus which frankly is a challenge and makes taking the plug harder when you are not experience. But holy fuck! When you take it and are experienced enough to relax becomes that little bump a horny feature!

The Topped Toys Grip 106

I sometimes get the questions if the Topped Toys Grip or more recently the Deep Space are good for training. To be frank, I have not yet played with them but looking at their shape and taking into account my experience with other toys, I would say no for the training aspect. The Grip starts out at a size range where you are almost in fist territory and its slopes are too steep (there is actually a sweetspot between steep- and dullness which is too complicated to explain here). On the Grip 96 and even the Grip 106 it looks a bit better. They could maybe work for training, I actually need to try them myself. But also these two have the very prominent edge around the equator which makes the pop going in intense and the pushing out challenging. This makes the toy interesting and horny for experienced holes but nothing for novices. If you like the shape though, buy them as inspirational toys. Because, you should always buy toys for the hole you want not the hole you have 😉

The Topped Toys Deep Space 70

The Deep Space as its name says is made for training stretch in the depth of the rectum and colon. Furthermore the tip is again shaped for more experienced holes which easily open up. So like the Grip, save the purchase for when you are fist-savvy or get it as playroom decoration to look at and aspire to when training yourself in the meantime.

Pharmacy

Douching

Ok, this is only in this section because you can buy clean-out accessories in the pharmacy. When training yourself, I would recommend not to overdo the douching because it irritates your anus and rectum, making it harder to open up. A thorough clean-out like before a good, heavy fucking should is enough. Yes, the fucking motion of the plugs can lead to some waste falling down. But this small thread it outweighed by the fact that you do not tired your hole out already in the bathroom.

When you get into serious fisting you will need to improve your clean-out routine. But still, you and your partner should always keep in mind where you put your hands. Accidents happen and are neither reason for drama nor for bottom shaming! Be adult about it, clean up, douche again, take a break and continue.  In my opinion, people who put down and shame bottoms for messy incident have not business of sticking their hands and dicks in rectums!

Two of my personally prefered Lubes for Anal Play

Lube

Lube is paramount! Too little lube can cause fissures and other accidents. There are some borderline cases (and with experienced players preferences) where there is too much lube. But especially when starting out with serious ass play, if you ask yourself “Should I add lube?” the answer is always “Yes!” When playing with silicone toys, you must not used silicone or hybrid lube because the silicone oil inside it will over time destroy your toys. The surface with become porous and sticky. I recommend water-based lube. There are countless brands available and actually two fister can talk for hours why which lube is the best. You just need to try. For the training the lube consumption will be relatively moderate. Since all powder lubes used for fisting go bad quickly, you should buy large and thus economic bottles of lube. My personal recommendations are Elbow Grease H2O Thick Gel or ID Glide because it stays in place on the toy but ever ass is different so give it a try.

Relaxants and Aftercare Ointments

There are many relaxation sprays and gels or even numbing ones out there. Stay away from them! The numbing effect will dull the pain you feel and thus an important indicator if you can still push on a bit or have to stop immediately! Injuries coming from being too forceful can keep you from ever enjoying any from of anal sex forever! So it is not worth it.

Heavy training can lead to mini fissures or stress-induced pain inside the sphincter. This is completely normal. For aftercare I recommend using baby diaper rash cream with panthenol and zinc oxide to help the small wounds to close and calendula and either chamomile or sage for a soothing effect. Even when you are a masochist, I recommend to wait with proceeding with the training until you have no pain in the anus anymore. Otherwise problems can escalate.

And finally a necessary word on semi legal and illegal substances. I will neither recommend nor demonize them because people will be using them anyway. Like relaxation or numbing gels they can greatly impair you ability to notice something is wrong. So especially when training, using anything more than poppers and THC which is relatively safe is very dangerous! If you decide to use substances educate yourself about the short and longterm effects and especially safe use. Never use them alone and try them with an experienced person you trust. Discuss your limits before hand and do not move/ let yourself be pushed further than you are comfortable with when you are sober.

I hope this article has helped you a bit to embark on the fun way to becoming a fistee! If you have any comments, Tweet or DM me or write an e-mail. Each feedback is appreciated.

Best for Self Play – Anal Toys

The Mr Hankey Dragon and XXXCalibur

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

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

Left SquarePeg Leo 2X, Right Mel 2X

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

Topped Toys Gape Keeper 100 & Chute 75

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

The Organotoy Eggs from Small to XXL

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

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

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

ToyTorture’s Stocking Stuffer I – Topped Toys Spike

The Topped Toys Spike 105 in their Signature Forge Red color and Steel Blue

It is the first Advent Sunday which means each Sunday until Christmas I will give you some stocking stuffer tips  I would love to get my stockings – or in this case ass – stuffed with.

In today’s review I talked about textured depth toys which I really enjoyed. A few weeks ago I reviewed my first toys from Topped Toys and loved them. What would happen if the two things would be combined? Well, the Topped Toys Spike would happen! Made out of high quality and soft platinum silicone, this is one of the most intense depth toys I have seen so for. One side of toy has deep bumps, almost like a saw – or a graphic Christmas tree. The other side has gentle bumps. So depending on the orientation the prostate gets gently stimulated or heavily tormented. And I cannot imagine what happens when the Spike penetrates the second sphincter!

If you are a bit too hesitant if such a heavily textured toy with a maximum diameter of 84mm and an insertable length of 355mm might be a bit too extreme for you, Topped Toys introduce a small brother to the original Spike 105 a couple of weeks ago: The Spike 70. With an insertable length of 241mm, a maximum diameter of 56mm and just the bumps on one side it is the perfect toy for the more careful and inexperienced anal play.

The Spike 105 costs 133€ while the Spike 70 retails for 65€ at Topped Toys‘ website. But a little birdie told me that they are looking to expand their retail network so they great ass tools might be coming to a perverted store near you soon. So you can check out in person if the Spike 70 is enough or you are feeling ambitious for the Spike 105.

P.S.:
As a friend once told me: Don’t buy the toys for the hole that you have but for the hole that you want… 😉

Over the years, reader questions have become a quite reliable indicator of what could be the next hot thing in kink toys. Early this summer a rising tidal wave of messages about a new anal toy manufacturer called Topped Toys (back then still Mountie Toys) hit my inbox. They were so new and from distant Canada lands that I have never heard about them before – unlike dozends of my readers who were VERY eager to learn about the design, feel and quality of htis newcomer. So always trying to be on the vanguard of toy development and getting you the review for the toys you are most interested in, I got my hands on the two designs they started out with to investigate what all the – ex post well deserved – fuzz is all about.

Topped Toys Gape Keeper 100 & Chute 75

Construction

For this review I have gotten the Gape Keeper 100 and the Chute 75. The Gape Keeper comes along as a fairly middle of the road plug yet into the design a lot of thought has been put. With an overall length of 185mm, the main body has roughly egg shaped and 130mm long and is 80mm at the widest point. At the bottom it flows into a 35mm long neck with a diameter of 52mm which flows into a base with measured 105x77mm. The Chute 75 is just a little bit shorter at 165mm overall length but with a maximum diameter of 60mm considerably smaller. The neck is just a bit shorter at 30mm and smaller at 34mm diameter. The base measures 72x50mm. What sets the Chute apart from other toys if the notch with runs from the base’s bottom 120mm way into the main body. It is 30mm at it widest point and 10mm deep.

Both the Gape Keeper and the Cute come in a number of different sizes for every training level.

Name Max. Diameter Insertable Length Neck Diameter Overall Length
Gape Keeper 55 44mm 121mm 25mm 140mm
Gape Keeper 65 53mm 121mm 30mm 140mm

Over the course of the last couple of years, it became the standard for high-end anal toys to be made out of platinum silicone and Topped Toys does not disappoint in this regard. The advantages are just too many: 100% body safe, hypoallergenic and easy to clean (from hot dish soap water or bleach over the dish washer to autoclaving them everything is possible) makes them the perfect toy for using on multiple partners in a short time frame like in an orgy setting. For storage, keep them upright or lay them down without pressure, to avoid creases. Only store them together with other platinum silicone toys because plasticizers of other materials can disintegrate the silicone. The same can happen when using silicone lube. Silicone oil is deadly for silicone. Because of that ere at the side of caution and only use water- or oil-based lubes with Topped Toys.

Topped Toys chose a very soft silicone  (Shore 00-34) for their toys so it is nice and squishy. Colorwise there are two options: Blue Steel which in my opinion is a bit dull (and too close to the signature color of a British company…) and Forged Red, a marble of rich red and steel grey, forming a unique pattern for each toy. Forged Red has somewhat become they signature color and it is a nice pop of individual color in the sea of black colored anal toys.

Playing with the Gape Keeper & Chute

I have to be honest: When the first wave of reader questions hit, I was skeptical if the world needed yet another platinum silicon toy manufacturer, especially with (at the beginning) such a fairly standard and boring range – an opinion shared by many in my testee panel. But once we had gotten our hands and holes on the toys, the opinion changed quickly.

From the first look, the Gape Keeper is another well designed boring butt plug which would have a hard time winning real favors in a world where most of my friends (and probably many of my readers too), have more than one of iconic SquarePeg Egg in their playroom. But the devil is in the detail. It was designed by someone who REALLY knew the anatomy of the rectum. The tip of the head is just spikey enough to seduce a with increasing size more trained sphincter to open up yet dull enough to allow for an intriguing maximum diameter and thus rectum filling size without overstuffing. Because of that the Gape Keeper 100 is very comfortable to wear over extended periods of time, like in fisting breaks to keep the gape open. But the piece de resistance for this property lies in the neck shape and design. The convex flow mimics how the rectum turns into the anus for most people. The neck has the length of an average sphincter. The base is not too long so it rests comfortable also in smaller bubble butts. I love my SquarePeg Eggs (all three of them!), but the Gape Keeper 100 is just a completely different level of comfort when it comes to long-term wear. The neck nestles so comfortably and perfectly inside the anus, even when moving considerably a lot, there is almost no urge to take the plug out – despite the hefty weight of the larger sizes.

If you are more action orientated like me and do not really like to wear plugs over extended periods of time (because you are so loose, there is no need to a toy to keep your gaping hole open…), the Gape Keeper is also a great punching toy. For my personal taste, it could be a bit firmer to force the sphincter a bit more open. But this is complaining about first world problems. As already written, the larger the toy, the duller it gets, the more intense is much sought after stretch sensation when entering. By implication this means that the smaller sizes being less dull are good training toys to slowly train the butt to take larger diameters. From my experience over the years, I would say, the Gape Keeper 100 is a good fisting benchmark. If you can take that toy, you should be able to take a medium fist.

My panel’s experience with the Chute follows a slightly different story. Especially the guys who incorporate active fucking into their anal play session were instantly hooked on the notch. It is designed to add extra girth and thus tightness for the top and the bottom when fucking. The dick simply slides along the notch. Since the notch makes the neck relatively thin, the plug looses a bit of rigidness and a hard, throbbing dick can easily push the head to the side when it needs room inside the rectum. Going up a size to the Chute 85 will probably solve that problem. At first the sensation and the logistics take a bit to work out (I recommend to place the plug either left or right of the shaft instead of on top or bottom). But once you get the hang of it, it is a unique sensation that can challenge a bottom again who is well broken in already. A word of warning though: When you fuck vigorously, the relatively small base and soft silicone can become a problem. Three testeees managed to thrust the entire plug into the bottom’s ass.

Naturally, the Chute can also be used with a dildo for either increasing stretch of shielding part of the sphincter from the dildo’s texture, focusing it on others. But the Chute just by itself is also a fun toy. For stretch training it is not a perfect toy because the notch in the middle prevents a smooth flow in and out of the hole. But the notch is perfect for gently targeting the prostate. When twisting and turning inside the hole, it gently brushed and massages the prostate glans. The stimulation is not strong enough for a milking but can definitely enhance the anal play sensation repertoire.

Where to buy?

While Topped Toys is currently working hard to expand their dealer network also in the Old World, the easiest way to get one of their toys is through their website. The Chute costs between 45€ and 59€ depending on the size, while the Gape Keeper starts at 23,95€ and ends at 168,95€.
