Mr. Hankey's Toys Centaur Dildo Review

Welcome to the world of large, realistic, silicone strap-on and pegging toys. That is, Mr. Hankey’s Toys! Mr. Hankey’s focus is on fun, thick strap-on compatible, body-safe toys, and that’s exactly what the Mr. Hankey’s Centaur dildo is. Available in multiple colors, firmnesses, and sizes, you can select a Centaur size that is best for your body. You can also select from an optional Vac-U-Lock hole at the base of your dildo. No matter the size, the Centaur comes equipped with a flat (but thick!), almost 1″ thickness base. All Mr. Hankey’s Toys are made of body-safe silicone and are entirely waterproof. The Mr. Hankey’s Toys Centaur that’s pictured is the Medium size.

Your new, detailed silicone toy will be shipped in a plain brown, discreet box. This box has a noticeable heft to it (thanks to the silicone), but it’s entirely discreet. Inside the box, as another layer of protection, your toy will be wrapped in unmarked, opaque black plastic. Once you get through all of those layers of security, you’ll have your beautiful new toy sitting in your hands. No instructions or further information is included in the box.

At first glance (and second, and third…), the Centaur is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a beautiful shade of brown that stands out among most other brown-colored toys. The textured detailing is pretty much everywhere – the head, the shaft, and the base. Every inch of this toy has been beautifully crafted – and I don’t see a single flaw anywhere. It’s honestly a beautiful sight to behold.

And on that note, it’s also a surprisingly stunning sight to behold. I wore this to a play party – sans anything covering it – and I received a ton of compliments – including complete strangers stopping me to compliment me and ask where I got it. It’s huge, it makes a statement, and even aside from the obvious largeness of it, when people inspect it, they’re constantly amazed by the detail.

It does have a ton of detail. Even compared to Bad Dragon toys, the Mr. Hankey’s Centaur is much more detailed. It’s hard to describe the level of difference between the two – but when the two are placed next to one another, the Mr. Hankey’s Centaur clearly stands out between the two.

Now, of course, please don’t let your eyes get bigger than your butt. (It’s a common affliction, I know.) Take the time to pull out your tape measure and actually measure out the circumference of your new addition to your toybox. 2″ diameter may not SOUND like much, but in reality, it can be a decent size for many. Make sure to take time to measure out the differences between the various Mr. Hankey’s Toys sizes – they can really make a difference!

Unlike some of the “giant toys” out there with unique, “creative” bases, it’s clear that Mr. Hankey’s Toys are designed for comfortable strap-on use. “Creative” bases are nice to look at, but they become really hard to strap-on when there’s two inches of thickness that have to sit underneath a harness before I even get to the useable length. Mr. Hankey’s Toys don’t seem to have that problem. While the base is definitely thick (to support the length of the dildo), it’s evenly shaped and fits under a harness without any discomfort. It’s definitely a BIG feeling under your harness, but it’s not uncomfortable by any means. I wore it for about 5 hours straight with no discomfort or bruising – and that’s saying something! I’ve had bruising from just basic Vixen Creations bases before. Their attention to harness-compatible bases definitely makes a difference if you’re someone who was hoping to use your dildo for pegging.

Don’t use an O-ring harness? Luckily, Mr. Hankey’s Toys also offers a Vac-U-Lock additional add-on to their dildos. When ordering your dildo, you can choose to have a small hole placed in the base – this hole will make your dildo Vac-U-Lock compatible, and it can be used with any Vac-U-Lock harnesses out there. Vac-U-Lock is an alternative way to attach a dildo to any Vac-U-Lock-compatible item. This includes dildo handles, strap-on harnesses, sex machines, and more. There’s a decent amount of Vac-U-Lock items out there.

Finally, what’s it feel like to use? Well, honestly, it’s a pretty big monster. Not in a bad way – but in a pretty awesome way. The toy is definitely flexible, so you’ll want to hold the head during insertion to make sure it goes in smoothly instead of bending along the shaft, but once that’s out of the way, the toy makes things easy. It gradually gets larger throughout the shaft, and the toy’s softness is squishy enough to make things pleasurable without feeling too stiff. The base of the toy can definitely be a bit unwieldy to hand-hold, but it feels pretty comfortable resting on the floor for hands-free play. (And it stays on the floor pretty nicely too!)

The toughest part of cleaning the Centaur is finding a sink that can easily fit its size without getting water all over your floor. That is: it’s an extremely easy toy to clean. While the Mr. Hankey’s Centaur is definitely detailed, it’s not overly or complicatedly so, and it’s simple to clean up the toy – even along the texture. For sterilization, you’ll likely have to stick to a water/bleach mixture as I doubt you’ll have pots that will be large enough to boil most of these sizes. It is easy to clean and care for, though – just don’t be unnecessarily rough with the toy. When using lubricant, make sure to select water-based varieties to avoid harming the surface of your dildo. When it comes to storage, I still haven’t found a sex toy storage container meant for a toy of this size, so it goes into a large plastic food storage baggie to protect it between uses.

Overall, Mr. Hankey’s Centaur is an amazing dildo, and I have no complaints about it. It’s huge – but it’s designed to be huge. Despite its huge size, it still manages to be beautiful, quite detailed, and perfect for a strap-on harness. Mr. Hankey’s Toys were clearly designed to work perfectly for pegging and strap-on use – and a lot of effort and care was put into the crafting and shape of the toys themselves. If you love larger toys or want a big one for pegging, Mr. Hankey’s Toys is the first company I’d recommend. Beautiful, high-quality toys with care given to a well-crafted base: what’s not to love? Thanks to Mr. Hankey’s Toys for providing this large horse dildo for my Centaur Dildo review.

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator Review

November 11th, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

Of course, it wouldn’t take long until ‘technology” managed to squirm its way into sex toys, and the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator by CalExotics (and sold by BoudoirNoir) is one of those such toys. Equipped with 10 vibration patterns, this vibrator’s intensity level is controlled by how much pressure is currently squeezing the shaft. More pressure means stronger vibrations. The vibrator is made from body-safe silicone and is entirely waterproof. The toy is rechargeable, and it’s 6.5″ in length with a diameter of 1.5″. The Luxe Touch-Sensitive vibrator is available in multiple color options. This silicone vibrating dildo also features a multi-functional base that lends itself well to suction cup use and strap-on harness use.

I was a bit surprised by how large the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator packaging was. The dildo itself isn’t particularly thick or long, but the packaging is one of the largest boxes I’ve ever seen a sex toy come in. (I’m talking about the sex toy’s packaging – not the shipping packaging) Inside the box, you’ll find the vibrator sitting in a foam tray specifically designed for its shape. The toy also includes a charging cable. Otherwise, it seems like a surprisingly large box for the small amount of stuff that the box actually contains. Regardless, the box is pretty sturdy, and it can be used to store the sex toy as long as you don’t require the box to be entirely discreet.

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

The Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator has a pretty basic design. The entirety of the toy is made of silicone. There’s a very, very small seam that runs around both sides of the dildo, but honestly, you’re not going to notice it during use. There’s no texture on the shaft itself, and the only design change is the very, very slight pronounced head at the tip. There’s a single control button at the base of this touch-sensitive vibrations dildo. Pressing the button turns the toy on and allows you to cycle through all of the vibration modes. Holding the button down will turn off the toy.

As you’ll notice from the photos, the Luxe vibrator offers a nice, wide, flared base. This base lends itself well to a couple uses. For one, the concave design at the base allows the base to function as a suction cup. Press this toy up against a flat surface, it sticks particularly well. I haven’t had much luck making it stick on walls without any extra support, but it sticks on floors or other tiled/bathroom surfaces without any problem. Just don’t make it fight gravity.

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

In addition to that, the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator also works particularly well in a strap-on harness. The base is nice and thin underneath the layer of the harness, so it doesn’t poke painfully into the vulva or abdomen. That being said, if you’re someone that tends to “grind” into the base to receive your own stimulation during strap-on sex, I’d recommend adding another vibrator or other sensation-causing item into your harness as the concave design of this base makes it difficult to make regular contact with the base during penetration. However, it’s extremely comfortable to strap-on.

Like previously mentioned, this vibrating touch-sensitive sex toy is entirely rechargeable. There’s a small rechargeable port on the base opposite the control button. The Luxe comes with a decent-length USB cable that plugs into the base of the toy and charges it. It will take about 4 hours for a full charge, and the vibrator will run at the highest speed for an hour on a single charge. It will run on the lowest speed for 1.5 hours. You’ll likely get about an hour and fifteen minutes out of a single charge during use since it will likely not be on the highest intensity the entire time.

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

I was a bit surprised to find that this touch-sensitive vibrator seems to respond to pressure throughout the entirety of the shaft. The toy DOES respond. The claims of “touch-sensitivity” are not overstated. When pressure is applied to the first 5″ of the toy (counting from tip down towards the base), the vibrations throughout the entire toy get noticeably more intense – and when pressure is removed, the vibrations get softer again.

That being said, the intensity change isn’t a huge change – and it isn’t a mind-blowing change either. It’s almost double the vibration intensity from the “softest” setting to the “strongest” setting. Since the vibrations weren’t mind-blowing to begin with, this makes it just moderate in intensity at the strongest setting. That being said, it’s not a bad feeling. As most people are going to be using this vibrating dildo as a penetrative toy, this should be more-than-enough intensity to enjoy the vibrations inside your body. There’s no reason to need a wand massager’s intensity for dildo toys for most people.

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

I also haven’t been able to figure out how to adjust the vibration intensity manually. As far as I can tell, the vibration intensity can only be adjusted by pressure sensitivity on the shaft. The sex toy doesn’t seem to come with any instructions, and from the instructions written on the box, that seems to be the way the toy operates. For most casual use of the Luxe sex toy, this “touch-sensitive control only” design will likely be just fine. As you feel yourself getting tenser and tenser as you experience waves of pleasure, the vibrating dildo will up the intensity as well – all on its own with no command from you.

At the same time, if you’re someone who tends to depend upon internal vibrations (and their intensity increasing) to reach orgasm, you might find the Luxe to be somewhat frustrating. The inability to precisely control the intensity with the moderate-intensity vibrations might be a non-starter for you.

That being said, many users of penetrative toys like this aren’t using them as the “sole” focus of all of their pleasure. They tend to use a dildo alongside their hand, with a partner, or with other types of stimulation. With that type of use in mind, the Luxe offers a nice “set it and forget it” type of sensation to it – a vibrating sensation that will even get more intense as you tighten around it. For that use, it’s great.

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

Being entirely waterproof, the Luxe vibrating dildo is pretty simple to clean as well. We’ve honestly just taken it into the shower for a full clean after sex, but you can clean it however you’d like. Anti-bacterial soap with its entirely-smooth design makes this a very simple and easy toy to care for. A condom fits very comfortably over the toy for simple clean-up. Along with that, make sure to use water-based lubricant when slickening up this toy. For storage, the toy doesn’t come with a pouch or anything else. However, the box will work just fine for storage – but be aware that the box isn’t particularly discreet, and it’s particularly large for the size of the toy. You may wish to keep it in a pouch or plastic zipped baggie of your own.

Overall, the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrating Dildo is going to be an amazing addition to play for people who don’t want to manually adjust the vibration intensity and who tend to use their dildo vibrations as an accessory to a “main event” – and not the focus itself. The toy itself is fun to play with, and the touch sensitivity responds pretty well, but being unable to manually adjust the intensity can make it occasionally very frustrating when a “little boost!” would get you to the finish line. As such, with its good functions, silky-soft silicone, and versatile base, I find that the Luxe vibrator is a fantastic choice for people who tend to use vibrations in a dildo as “icing on the cake” and not the main focus itself. Thanks to BoudoirNoir for providing this vibrating touch sensitive dildo for my Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator Dildo review.

MEO.de Dog Play Leather Bone Review

November 03rd, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

Leather Puppy Play Dog Bones

When you’re looking for a fun and authentic puppy play experience, it doesn’t get much more authentic than letting your “pup” play around with some toys! While real-life dog bones are much too tough for human teeth, this leather alternative can provide all of the fun with a safe, padded, soft toy. The Dog Play Leather Bones from MEO.de are made from Nappa leather, and they come in a small and large size. Each bone is stuffed with some stuffing for a fluffier bone. The small bone measures in at 6.5″ in length, 4″ in width, and 3.5″ circumference around the bitey area. while the large bone is noticeably larger at 8″ in length, 4″ in width, and 5.25″circumference around the bitey area. As you can tell from the photos, each bone has a unique and different appearance as well.

Like all MEO.de items, your bone will come packaged in a see-through plastic bag. This bag has no information outside of warehouse information and the item’s name. This bag must be destroyed in order to get the bone inside, so it’s not a great long-term storage idea. However, these bones fit fine into a gallon-sized plastic baggie, so I’d recommend one of those for storage.

Leather Puppy Play Dog Bones

These bones look pretty durably-made. Since human teeth can’t rip things apart like canine teeth can, even at your worst, your “pup” likely shouldn’t be able to destroy these bones with any sort of ease. The bones are nice and fluffy, and aside from the stitching area that isn’t uniform with the rest, the stitching and design of the bones look great. The Small bone has more of a noticeable “bone” design while the Large bone just looks a lot more thick.

However, I was surprised to see that some of the dog bone seams aren’t entirely lined up. While it doesn’t affect the use of the BDSM Puppy Play Bone, it does make the bone look a lot more sloppy and unfinished. This un-matching seam was present on both bones, but it does give somewhere for the teeth to easily “grip” to carry around the bone without stretching out the mouth.

If you’re looking for a more “authentic” puppy bone experience, I’d highly recommend the smaller bone. The smaller bone seems to have a lot more of the realistic mouth-to-bone ratios, and it also has a much smaller width which makes it easier to fully grasp in the mouth. If you’re a larger “breed” who wants a larger bone, feel free to go with the larger one, but be aware that it doesn’t quite have the same true-to-life ratios as bones-to-canines that the smaller bone seems to have.

That being said, the larger bone is noticeably, well, large. It’s not an easy size to fit into the mouth. If you use larger gag sizes or know you have a larger mouth, the bone will likely fit in there just fine, but remember that you’re likely going to be picking up these bones off the floor/furniture without hand assistance, so if you have a smaller mouth, you might find more realism in using the Small size. The Large size bone is hard for me to get into my mouth without hands, and my partner says it’s a noticeable stretch for him. So keep that in mind. And if in doubt, consider bunching up your clothing to the same diameter measurement and trying to chomp into that to see if the Large leather bone will be a good fit for you.

Leather Puppy Play Dog Bones

As these bones are made from leather, you should be aware that they’re not going to be the most sanitary toys to share. Make sure your puppies are okay swapping saliva with whomever you choose to share these leather bones with.

Cleaning resembles how you’d choose to clean any other leather item in your collection. You’ll need to use specific leather cleanser, and I’d highly recommend letting the bone sit out for a few days before playing with it again to avoid too much of the cleanser getting ingested. However, some people like that taste, so play safely and within your preferences. I’d avoid submerging the bones in water, though. The stitching is great at keeping the stuffing in the bone, but I don’t think it will keep water out.

For storage, these bones are pretty simple. Just store these leather toys anywhere you’d like – but make sure you don’t accidentally crush them under anything. As long as you don’t flatten them or leave them out in direct sunlight for too long, they’ll be a-okay.

Overall, we’re particularly fond of the Small leather puppy play bone from MEO.de. It fits pretty easily into the mouth, is comfortable on the teeth, and is well-made enough to ensure most human pups aren’t going to tear it apart within the first couple of uses. You do have to be a bit more careful about care and cleaning of these bones, but it can be worth it to offer a realistic puppy play experience for your roleplaying partner. Thanks to MEO.de for providing this puppy play leather dog bone for my Dog Play Leather Bone review.

Leather Restraint Collar With Attached Cuffs Review

October 26th, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

Sh! Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs

For a unique restraint experience, consider the Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs from Sh! Women’s Emporium. A leather “stocks-like” restraint, this collar has two attached, static wrist cuffs that hold the wrists up against the neck for upper body limb immobilization. Available in either leather or rubber, the collar and cuffs are 2″ in width for a more comfortable wearing experience. Typical of many of the Sh! Women’s Sex Toy Store items, this stock-style leather restraint is also available in multiple, fun colors in addition to the standard black. The collar fits a circumference of 14″ to 18.5″ while the cuffs fit a circumference of 5″ to 8″.

Sh! Women’s Store does a fantastic job of packing their in-house-made items. Your restraints will come wrapped in tissue paper to make for a lovely, elegant time opening your item. The item will be packaged in a plain, brown box for shipping. Be aware that there aren’t any instructions for your Leather Stock Restraints, but it’s pretty self-explanatory.

Sh! Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs

The Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs follows a pretty simplistic design – there’s a thick, leather collar, and attached to it, are two cuffs. The cuffs are static, and their angle cannot change. This means that it will basically force the wearer’s elbows out in front of them with their wrists right up against the neck/collar. For further bondage possibilities, the collar offers a single D-ring on the front of the collar. This D-ring is well-fastened against the leather, and it makes virtually zero noise (unlike some D-rings) as the wearer moves around. All of the buckles for the collar and wrist restraints are standard buckles with no locking buckles to be scene. However, once the wrists are securely fastened into the collar and cuffs, I wouldn’t expect your “captive” to be able to escape anyway. It’ll be near-impossible without third party help or destroying the restraint in some way.

When it comes to adjustability, the cuffs and collar will fit a decent size range. You might find yourself more limited by the wearer’s flexibility than the cuffs and collar themselves. It can be pretty stretching on the triceps to have the wrists up against the neck like this. I’m a bigger girl, and the cuffs and collar fit me with multiple open slots to spare. My slimmer partners have no problem with it – but they do wear it on the smallest setting. Even at a bit loose, though, it still restrains just fine.

Sh! Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs

And for durability? Your partner will have a pretty difficult time destroying this one. The biggest “weak” point would likely be the attached of the cuffs to the collar, and to solve this, Sh! used four (covered-on-both sides by leather) rivets to attach the cuffs to the collar. Outside of that, almost all of the high-tug areas feature added rivets – with all of the rivets that would touch the wearer’s skin being covered by another layer of leather. I’ve had absolutely no concerns about durability – even with someone tugging to the best of their ability.

As you can imagine, a “stock-style” restraint can start to be particularly tiring after a bit. For that reason, try to keep your play sessions on the shorter side with the Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs. While it’s pretty comfortable and fun to actually have against the skin, your wearer will likely find their hands starting to go numb or “tingly” from lack of blood flow after longer periods of time. Releasing the hands temporarily and putting them back in can solve that problem if you’re hoping to keep your partner in these restraints for a longer period of time.

You will also want to be careful about the wearer’s positioning. There’s no way for them to safely fall, and they will likely break an elbow (and more) if they land hard on their face. For that reason, using this restraint while fully (and safely!) standing or while sitting or laying tends to be the safest (and most comfortable) for the bottom. Many wearers are going to find themselves losing a bit of their balance with their hands forced into a stocks-like position.

For example, this is a fun leather stocks restraint I’d use at home while in a seated or well-secured scene – not for dragging my partner around a busy play party.

With how long the wearer will be in this bondage implement, how comfortable it is? Well, aside from the positioning issues (which is likely what’s going to cause you two to take off the restraint), the collar and cuffs itself is comfortable. The leather does feel like unbreathable leather against the skin, but it’s slightly softened (though not plushy). The thicker bands help make the restraint feel more comfortable and less pinchy, and it’s always been the positioning of the wrists – not the feel of the collar and cuffs itself – that make my partners want to tap out of this one.

Sh! Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs

When it comes to cleaning a leather restraint like this, you’ll want to treat it like typical leather. It shouldn’t be dunk or submerged in water very often. Use leather cleaner, or if you don’t have that, use a slightly-damp washcloth to wipe down the surface of the material. It goes along the neck and skin, and it makes sense that there may be a build-up of oils, but if you wipe it down often, your leather cuffs should continue to feel relatively clean. However, try to avoid getting bodily fluids or lubricants on the restraints if you can manage it. For storage, try not to flatten the leather or circular design. Aside from that, feel free to store it virtually anywhere as long as it’s not cramped and not in direct sunlight.

Overall, the Captive Collar and Cuffs in Leather do exactly as they’re designed to do – they hold the wearer in a “stocks-like” position without requiring use of an expensive stocks toy. The wider strap length makes them a bit more comfortable to wear, but still be aware that the wearer will still likely be only able to stay in this a half-hour to an hour. The D-ring on the front offers more bondage possibilities while the multitude of color selection lets you choose a restraint that matches your personal style. Thanks to Sh! Women’s Store for providing this neck and wrist restraint for my Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs review.
