About two years ago a new company manufacturing high quality silicone anal toys emerged: Mr Hankey. Quickly I got reader questions if I knew the company and what I thought about their products. So I got in touch with them and they were so kind to send me two of the designs I have been asked the most about: The XXXCalibur and the Dragon.
Like most top notch anal toys, all Mr Hankey toys are made out of platinum silicone. The “platinum” refers to the catalyst used to make the silicone. Being a noble metal is it hypoallergenic and doesn’t cause adverse effect inside the body like tin which is used as a catalyst for cheap silicone. Besides being body-safe, platinum silicone can withstand acid and heat. In addition to the super-smooth surface which makes it hard to bacteria to linger, platinum silicone toys can be cleaned easily and quickly: Either put them in hot water with an acid cleaner or even auto-clave them. Being sanitized so easily, these toys are ideal when playing with multiple partners in a safe way. As always with silicone toys, never use them with silicone lube because it can damage the toy.
Off the rack Mr Hankey offers two firmnesses: Medium and 75% firm. The medium gives the texture presence without preventing them to give in while the 75% firm is squishy but still strong enough that even a larger and thinner toy like the XXXCalibur stands erect on its own. Though as always the rule applies: The thicker a toy, the harder it will feel. You can now ask for custom firmness degrees which might be useful for extreme long depth toys to get around all the bends or to make the texture on anthropomorphic toys extra intense.
As standard, Mr Hankey offers three classic colors: Natural Tan, Brown and classic black. For a surcharge you can get all kinds of extravagant colors like I got on my Dragon: A nice turquoise with ruby accents. Just follow their Twitter (with most straight NSFW content!) where once in a while they share pictures of their newest creations.
A nice additional feature is the Vac-U-Lock hole at the bottom. With this hole you can attach the dildo to fuck machines or strap-on-harnesses who feature a Vac-U-Lock plug. Mr Hankey also offers a Handle Attachment for $24.95 for easier manually guided penetration. When washing the toy, make sure that the Vac-U-Lock hole is completely dry before storing it! Otherwise mole might start to appear.
The shape of the XXXCalibur roughly resembles an uncut dick. The tip is modeled after a long-drawn glans which just slightly peaks out of the foreskin. It tappers a bit again before the oval shaft extends to its full diameter. The shaft is lightly texture with veins which tease a novice the sphincter just a little bit but are mostly not noticeable for real ass pigs. At the bottom there are two large balls which allow for a good grip for the top.
The Dragon on the other hand sets the mood for the toy right from the tip: While it also features a glans, it is anthropomorphically shaped with rugged ridges which almost look scale like. From the glans all the way to the base the runs a band of deep, ridged scales at the front and the back of the shaft. The sides between the scales is lightly textured with a snake skin pattern. The roughness of the Dragon is underlines by the fact that the shaft’s maximum diameter comes just behind the glans so there is not much resting time after conquering the challenging glans.

Playing with the XXXCalibur & Dragon
Through the anatomic shape and the light texture the XXXCalibur is a good curious-beginners’ and easy-play toy. For some of my testees it actually became their everyday dildo because in the 75% firmness it felt like a human dick to them.
Beyond smooth riding, the XXXCalibur – especially in the larger site – is a good depth training toy. Even in 75% firmness it has enough stability to be easily controlled yet is flexible enough to go around bends. When training on your own, it is firm enough to stand up during careful fucking so you can focus on controlling the pressure applied to the second sphincter. The long-drawn glans is perfect for training the second sphincter to open up. Through the little tapper between the glans and the shaft it can actually close again once inserted so you can do the same “plug fucking” you do with the anus when training up for taking a fist.
The Dragon is almost the direct opposite of the XXXCalibur. Being so heavily textured right from the beginning, it is hard to take, even for more experience ass pigs. So especially when not riding it yourself but if a top pushes it in, be extra careful. But the rugged glans is great for teasing the ass lips and the sphincter without fully pushing in. Just messaging the sensitive tissue with the ridges is enough to drive some bottoms made.
Once inserted the scale bands on the top and bottom of the shaft tease and torment the sensitive sphincter even when turned lightly. The deep textures gives the otherwise relatively circular shaft an oval shape. Because of that, every turn also induces a stretching sensation. What is really evil is cumming while riding the toy and then having to pull it out. The again tightened up sphincter will face a challenge with the deep ridge under the glans rim.
