Your thirst for new Bad Dragon Reviews never seems to stop – regardless how many of their toys I test. But I can understand you, riding their toys is very hot. Through your reader questions you pressure me to explore awesome toys – like Vector – I would have never considered. So not sure if I should call it “Time Honored Tradition” or “Broken Record” but here it is, the (semi?)annual Bad Dragon review.
The most important thing about all Bad Dragon insertables (and to also fuckables) is that they are only made out of pure platinum silicone. Bad Dragon was actually the first major toy company back in 2008 to only work with platinum silicone so they have loads of experience which echos in their brilliant and elaborate color patterns. Silicone is the perfect material for colored toys since it takes on the color really well and does not discolor or fade over time. Each of their toys comes in different color patterns and can be highly customized. On their website is a configuration tool where you can see the toy in your desired pattern in 3D with a sizing tool. Just in case you are unsure if the toy is too big. Important when choosing the right size is to consider the firmness: The bigger the toy, the firmer it will feel. You can choose from soft (Shore A2), medium (Shore A5) and firm (Shore A8 which is still relatively soft).
More important than the coloring are the material properties of platinum silicone: First of all it is 100% body safe. This is extremely important because the human rectum has a very receptive mucous lining (That’s why you get extreme alcohol poisoning when you pour booze into your ass! Don’t do it!) so plasticizers or other potential toxins emitted from low quality PVC/ vinyl toys can enter the bloodstream easily. Besides not being harmful to your body, platinum silicone has a super-smooth surface so it is easy to clean. For cleaning simple put the toy in warm dishsoap water, let it soak and rinse it off (I take post play bath with the toys on a regular basis). For extra cleaning, spray them with sanitizer or put them in an autoclave. While we are on the topic, a word how to care for your new silicone sculptures: Do not store them together with toys made out of other materials. The plasticizers leaving the material can damage your silicone toys for good. Especially when they are made out of soft silicone, store them upright. Otherwise they get dents and creases. One drawback of silicone is that is must not be used with silicone lube! The silicone oil inside will disintegrate the toy and tarnish the surface over time. Water or oil based lubes are perfect for them!
Most toys can be customized with different options: The newest is called Dragon Mount but is actually a Vac-U-Lock hole. If your toy can be equipped with it, get it! While especially the larger toys might be too heavy for fuck machines, there are tons of Vac-U-Lock accessories like handles out there. When playing as a top I also like to guide the toy by sticking a thumb into the hole. The next best thing is the suction cup. Unlike with other toy companies, the Bad Dragon suction cup it deep and thus heavy duty! When you want to ride larger toys, I consider it an essential because otherwise the base will slide away. The suction cup is strong enough to stick even XL toys to the bathroom wall and you don’t pull them off when you deknot. The cum tube is a controversial topic. None of my Bad Dragons have a cum tube. With friends’ toys I was able to try the effect of shooting cum lube up my ass. It did not feel so intense but added a fuckton of effort to the cleaning. However, after every Bad Dragon review I post I am getting inundated with messages from people who swear by the cum tube! It adds so much of immersion to their toy that they would never buy a toy without it. If you have never tried a Bad Dragon with a cum tube and consider it, I highly recommend buying one of their Lil’Squirte to test the effect before buying an equipped big toy.
Bad Dragon used to make every toy according to custom orders. This led to production times up to half year. So two years back they switched their order system: On a more or less regular basis they now have drops of already made toys. Sadly XL toys are rare in these drops and I know what you ass pigs are after. Once in a blue moon Bad Dragon opens custom orders for a limited number of orders. Then you can order your dream configuration. A lot of guys complain to me that this system sucks. I actually find it a lot better than the old one since they only take as many orders as they can process in a foreseeable time so you do not have to wait forever to get your new fantasy dong. Also, I do not know when the next drop/ custom order date is! Best you follow them on Twitter or Instagram; they announce drops and custom orders there.
Not sure why, but there has been an influx of review requests for equine inspired dildos. And “inspired” is the right term for Vector because he is a cyborg variety of a horse.
The most often question I have gotten asked was “Is he larger than Chance?” Vector is slightly taller and the shaft is slightly thicker. The base is about the same side and cannot be equipped with a suction cup. This makes riding Vector a bit more challenging. Due to being larger, he is even more head-heavy than Chances and likes to tip over in medium firmness. Usually I don’t give firmness advice but for Vector I would advice to go with medium. In soft he flops around too much and is difficult to control, especially when playing alone. In firm he is too rigid and does not bend around the kinks of your colon. In medium he is just bendy enough tough due to being bigger than Chance he is a bit more rigid.
Vector is unflared so there is just a little bluge going around the glans rim. But the glans itself is wider and even flatter than on Chance. You need a good, pre-stretched hole to open up to this dull tip. Being a cyborg toy, the shaft is lightly textured with conducting paths, very subtle bumps & ridges and shallow panels with hexagonal patterns. Much like Chance subtle veins the pattern adds just a bit of friction when riding the toy but is mostly unnoticeable. The largest rising is the quite prominent ventral groove running down the shaft. And of course the medial ring which is wide band which rises vertically from the shaft so it is more noticeable than on Chance. The medial ring sits about 2/3 down the shaft. Below it the texture gets deeper and thus is more noticeable. But still far from the scales of a Clayton or Flint.
The base has an interesting design. Instead of big stallion balls it is shaped like a (space) cowboy boot. The apex of the instep strap goes about 40mm above the rest of the base which is a bit of a challenge if you want to take Vector (w)hole. The bottom of the shaft is a bit disappointing compared to Chance. There was a cluster of this lateral veins about 50mm above the base which massages the anus when riding him deep which I enjoy very much. But since Vector goes deeper and wider it is probably wise to not over-stimulate.
Bishop comes from the same cyborg inspiration as Vector. But instead of a horse a dog was the inspiration for this dildo. And he plays a much meaner game than Vector.
The first thing you notice when looking at Bishop is the unusual overall shape: The dildo is arching backwards. So if you ride him the traditional way with his balls pointing to yours, there is a constant light pressure on your anus. The shaft protrudes and pushes against the prostate. Until you come to the knot! Unlike other knots which are located below the shaft Bishop’s bulge extends backwards. This makes the knotting experience quite intense. And the knot-massive to-neck ratio of 3:2 makes the deknotting equally impressive! And that is before you start looking at the texture.
The glans is very tame. Gradually tapering it opens the anus up nicely. But since its orientation is perpendicular to the anus openung it is a bit more challenging than other toys. The shaft is textured with ridges in the form of metal plates welded on top of each other. The shaft’s bottom is textured with 7 scale-like plates mounted on top of each other for a saw-like texture, much like Flint only shallower. The top as well as the upside of the knot only has a few large plates with shallower drops mounted on top of each other so it is a bit smoother ride. The bottom of the knot has a faint hexagonal pattern imprinted. A nice touch are two round bumps just above the neck at the bottom of the knot. They might not look big and are easily compressed. But this little added texture makes the deknotting even more intense.
The intense texture in addition to the unusual curvature make Bishops a horny toy to ride if you are experienced and are in for hard prostate and anus stimulation. Depending on your physiology the large will already penetrate your second hole. Due to arching backwards the penetration is intense. Despite not going deep and the glans tapering gently, I would not recommend this toy for depth novices. Overall, Bishop is a compact toy. He stands sturdily straight up, especially when fixed with a suction cup. So you can ride him vigorously without him accidentally slipping out or away.
Compared to the previous two toys, Spritz is a very traditional design. But Spritz has a few tricks up his sleeve.
Like Bishop’s glans, Spritz’ glans is perpendicular to the anus orientation. But it is even more cone-shaped for gradual opening up. There is no glans drop but three ridges below the glans. They are quite stimulating but also add friction so going deeper is a challenge.
The shaft is extremely, almost 90° curved. This adds pressure inside the colon but also makes taking the toy deep a bit easier. There are two thick lateral bulges on the shaft which are only really noticeable when you turn the shaft inside the rectum.
Above the knot are again three thick and high ridges. Especially the drop below the last one is significant. They stimulate the anus intensely but make taking the knot more difficult. When the knot is still a challenge you usually ride the top of the knot, recede a bit onto the shaft to rest and attack it again. But the rest phase “irritates” (= stimulates) the anus, making it tighter. The knot is voluminous but tapers softly so the knotting itself is not hard just a lot of volume. Funnily there is a ventral groove on the knot which works as a bit of a guiding rod.
The neck is very short but long enough for the anus to close completely. It is a bit textured with vertical grooves which are only noticeable when you turn the toy. But especially in the larger sizes this will hardly ever happen due to the strong curvature. What I would have liked more would have been lateral bumps like Clayton’s so there is a bit of stimulation when you are bouncing on the toy. Luckily the base is massive and can be equipped with a suction cup so riding Spritz hard is not an issue.
