Form: Anthro Dildo
In last year’s anal toy special I already reviewed Weredog’s Gage and liked it a lot. But the toys I am getting the most reader questions about are actually the Rutt followed by the Skylar. So let’s take a look at these toys.
To put it short, Rutt is a stylized version of a canine dick. Typical for this kind of dong, the glans is dullish with a little tip at the bottom. The shaft above the knot bulges a bit. The knot itself has three bulges instead the two a realistic one would have. Below the knot there is a short shaft before a hinted pocket and two balls form the base.
The Skylar is quite different. His glans is softly tapering and features a shallow glans rim just like a human glans. The long shaft is concave but the top’s curvature is lower than the bottom’s. This way the shaft bulges in the middle. The bottom is textured with six scale-like ridges while the lower half of the top features increasingly deeper bumps. The body sits on a big light textured base.
All of Weredogs toys are made out of high quality platinum silicone meaning they are easy to clean and hypo-allergenic. It comes on 24 colors, 22 standard ones and two Glow in the Dark shades (green and blue) which adds 10% to the base price. Under daylight they look off-white but once it gets dark they have the brightest and longest glow of all Glow in the Dark toys I have seen so far! For 10€ you can add a second color either as a marble (as my two toys are), swirl and split base. Weredog also offers a Surprise Me option for 19.48€ but only do that if you are very adventurous! I have tried that option several times with several manufacturers and was unimpressed. If you invest such a large sum of money into your dream anal toy, at least make it right the way you want it.
Firmness-wise Weredog is on the softer side of the spectrum. Their soft is Shore 00-37, the medium Shore 00-41 and the firm Shore 00-45. The Shore 00 scale and the Shore A-scale which for example Bad Dragon uses are hard to compare but the Bad Dragon medium firmness is about as firm as Weredog’s firm. While Weredog like all major companies offers sample discs to try out the firmness at home, I am not the biggest fan of them. The larger a toy, the firmer it feels and the less flexible it will be. So choose the firmness with a grain of salt. What you don’t have to chose because it comes standard with every toy is a nifty storage bag.
Playing with the Skylar & Rutt
As already written, both toys are hard to compare. Counter intuitively the Skylar is actually a good trainings and pre-stretching toy – at least in soft or medium firmness. The long, tapering glans opens up the sphincter(s) softly for an easy entry without much pre-stretch. Despite the thick shaft, inside the rectum it is bendy enough to find its way towards the second sphincter and thus train your hole for depth play. Meanwhile the scales gently massage the first (an depending on the size second!) sphincter for added stimulation. Due to the strong curvature it is almost impossible to get prostate stimulation out of the scales. For this, the bumps on the top are good yet they are so shallow
If you buy Skylar in firm, he becomes a toy for the experienced. The ridges feel so much more intense, a testee called my firm XL a “horny cheese grater”. Using quite some force, Skylar’s tip can twist. But this too little for gentle training. He will rearrange your guts! So a welcoming second sphincter and slow insertion is paramount when playing with a larger firm Skylar. Once he is in and you really need it hard, it is a great toy to unleash upon your hole to really trash it!
Rutt in any case requires training and pre-stretching! This starts with the dullish glans which forces the sphincter open instead of slowly opening it up. The barrel-like shaft is untextured but since the diameter in the middle is 34% larger than the glans a bit of a stretch. From the glans runs a small ventral groove that can add stimulation when twisted inside the hole.
Though if the shaft and ventral groove excites you, you are not nearly prepared for what comes next! Compare to other K9 inspired dildos, Rutt’s knot top is quite dull. So if your hole is not loose enough, it will not get in! The knotting is made even more intense but the third bulge on top of the shaft! All in all, the shaft-knot-ratio is an insane 1:2 which made the Rutt the favorite for knot fucking among some of my testees.
A great feat of Rutt is that his shaft is relatively short. This means even not so depth-savvy size queens can enjoy the Rutt. Speaking of size-queens, a drop of bitterness is the sizing range on Rutt: While the large one is a bit small for experienced players, the XL is so much larger than I know only few who can take him. A size between those would be great!
