MEO.de 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring Butt Plug

MEO.de 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring Butt Plug. Size Large.

Available in a variety of sizes, the 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring was designed for long-term wear to stretch out the anal area. Offered in six different designs, this plug is made from sturdy, relatively light high-grade aluminum alloy. The metal material offers a comfortable material that doesn’t absorb lubricant. The pictured butt plug is the size Large (fourth largest size) at a 1.4″ internal diameter, 2.8″ diameter at the largest point, and a length of 3.5″. All of the measurements are clearly displayed on the product website.

Designed to easily offer progression for those who want visibly larger results, the 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring Plug is offered for all anal experience levels. The plugs are available from XS sizing all the way up to XXL sizing. MEO.de offers a Small/Medium/Large multi-item set, but for all the rest of the sizes, they have to be purchased separately. The sizes range from a diameter of 1″ all the way up to a diameter of 3″. Like I said, easily a size available for everyone of all levels.

Do be aware that the plug is made from a very firm, very rigid material, so don’t assume the plug will squish or have any give during insertion to help with inserting. Choose a plug that works well for your experience level.

The design of the 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring Plug leaves the butt open. With the hole through the center of the plug, you could do devious things with the plug. Not only could you use it for scientific curiousity, but it could be used for liquids, applying deep lube, or other bodily fluids. It also can just be used for humiliation/degradation purposes; it’s really up to you.

When wearing the 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring, it tends to be most comfortable to sit down on padded surfaces. While it won’t kill or cause pain to sit on hard surfaces like dining room chairs, padded ones tend to be a bit nicer to the unforgiving metal of the plug. Sticking to couches, padded seats, and bedding if you’re planning on using this plug regularly helps keep the plug feel “effortlessly not there” versus a noticeable pressure with your body weight.

The biggest thing you really need to be aware of when using the 24/7 Stretching Ring is the size. While you’re using this as a stretching butt plug, you need to be able to get the plug into the body in the first place. The tip has a very slight tapering, but for the most part, it’s going to start large and get slightly larger. With the rigid metal, the most important aspect is selecting a plug that’s a comfortable-enough size for you to take it easily. Slowly going from smaller plugs to the larger plugs is the best method, but if not, consider warming up with some of your other toys or fingers to be able to slide in this butt stretching plug.

As is a concern with any type of rigid metal, you should be concerned about the smoothness of the material. You have no reason to be concerned with this plug, though. The cut is extremely well-done. I don’t feel a single spot on this entire plug that concerns me. The only texture to the plug at all is on the retention area where the MEO logo can be found. It has no discernible texture during actual use, but you can feel it with your hands.

So how well does this plug stay in? It’s beyond fantastic, actually. The design has clearly been tested and tested again. The plug has a nice, long retention area that keeps it in the butt reliably and without any concern about it slipping out.

As mentioned before, you will definitely want to know that your body can accept the plug’s larger size. It has a very, very slight taper along the edges, but it isn’t going to be nearly enough if you’re not already prepared and comfortable with a toy that size. It seems to slide in best with a nice warm-up of at-least the same size. (For a plug like this, four fingers can do that warm-up) The lubricant needs a bit of lubricant on the plug itself, but if you’ve been already using a lubed toy for most of the warm-up process, it doesn’t require much extra lube.

Speaking of lubrication, the initial lubrication (if you do a decent job) should be enough to get you through many hours of wear. If you start moving more into 24/7 or “all day” wear, you may want to take it out to reapply, but the material really doesn’t absorb lubricant, so things stay pretty slippery.

The oddest sensation about this plug is the feeling of being “held open”. It’s a new type of sensation for pretty much anyone – especially without wearing clothes, you’ll feel air and breeze in spots you’ve, well, never felt it before. The entire experience is pretty unique, and partnered with the fact that it acts as just a regular butt plug as well, it’s a unique anal plug experience for those that particularly love being stretched from plugs anyway.

Since the purpose of this plug is stretching, you’ll be happy to know that it accomplishes that well. Depending on the size, it’d be pretty easy to get a gape on some of the larger sizes.

As this plug is made from aluminum alloy, it’s extremely simple to clean. You’ll just want to use warm water and anti-bacterial soap. Make sure you’re thorough about cleaning the internal ring of the plug to ensure the plug stays clean. Avoid cleaning with any abrasive surfaces like scrubbers, though, to avoid harming the surface of your plug. Any type of lubricant is compatible with this plug, and I recommend using quite a bit of lubricant to ensure comfort. The plug can basically be stored any way you’d like; it holds its own shape, doesn’t collect dust, and is relatively small and easy to store. Again, I’d recommend against storing it near any sharp or scratchy objects, but otherwise, wherever you’d like.

Overall, the 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring Large was designed to easily help stretch out the butt for other activities – or just for fun. The material makes for a comfortable wearing session, and it doesn’t require too much lubricant reapplication. Multiple sizes make it easy to choose one that works for your skill level – just make sure you measure well as getting too large might be problematic. Thanks to MEO.de for providing this anal stretching butt plug for my 24/7 Anal Stretching Ring review.

5 Tips for Finding a Brick-and-Mortar Sex-Positive Sex Toy Store

July 21st, 16   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

FunFactory Bi STRONIC Fusion

I personally prefer to purchase any of my sex toys online. Especially as I live in a not-too-populated area, it can be hard to find a good, safe sex toy store that I want to visit on a regular basis that’s nearby. Going online gives me the ability to shop with sex-positive stores in a comfortable environment and lots of information.

However, I’ll admit that I’ve found some pretty amazing in-person stores before. They take a bit more digging to find the good ones, but when you do, they make you realize all of the excitement of walking into a toy store and walking out with a discreet, well-informed purchase. There’s something a lot more fun about being in a store with a bunch of other sex-positive people that’s just missing from the online shopping experience.

Finding a brick-and-mortar adult store doesn’t have to be impossible, though. Consider trying these avenues to find a better choice:

Ask Around: I hate to say it (especially in a world of readily available information online), but the best way to find a good sex toy store is by asking around. Not everyone hangs around in friend groups who would be comfortable answering this question, but knowing where your friends have had good/bad experiences can really help you figure out which sex shops might be worth visiting.

Look on Review Sites: As a substitution, you can always look online at review websites. While you might find a similar lack of online opinions as you’d find in real-life, the benefits of using online guides means that you can pull from opinions outside of your regular user group. For example, Yelp could help you figure out which San Francisco sex toy stores rate highest.¬†When you’re done visiting the store, don’t forget to add your own opinion on websites like Yelp or Google Reviews. You might also want to check out bloggers lists’ of their favorite local shops including these lists of best sex shops in Toronto, best sex shops in Sydney, and best sex shops in London.

Head to the Nearest Populated City: Smaller cities are much less likely to have sex-positive and expansive toy stores. If you can afford the journey, consider looking in the nearest large city. You might find a reason to make a road trip a bit earlier than planned. Just make sure to do some online searching before you head into the city to have a good idea of your options for when you get there.

Don’t Judge By the Storefront – Too Much: Because of the age we live in, most sex toy storefronts may not look as glamorous as you’d like. Many cities place limitations on how extravagant a storefront may be. Instead, look at the surrounding area. Is it in a safe part of town? Does it look like they regularly clean the garbage off the property? It won’t give you much information, but it might give you a little peace of mind before walking into a store.

Bring a Friend! As a final tip, if you’re nervous, remember that you can always bring someone with you. Even if you’re single, you can still bring along a good friend – almost every friend will be happy to come along if you tell them why you’re nervous.

Of course, while you’re at it, don’t forget to peruse some of my how to buy sex toys guides to have a good outline for what you’re looking for in the store when you get there!

Wrapping Up This Year’s Chicago-Based Sex Expo: Exxxotica 2016!

If you happened to head to the Rosemont area last weekend, you would have been met by the sight of a full convention center with cosplayers and half-dressed people walking on the sidewalks. The Donald Stephens Convention center, near Chicago’s O’hare, was home to the Anime Midwest conference and Exxxotica 2016. While the conferences seem as different as can be, Exxxotica was welcoming of the anime lovers – even offering a sexy cosplay contest and discounted admission for anime guests.

Stepping into the exhibition hall for Exxxotica is a sight to behold as well. Once you make it through the age verification checks, you’ll be met with rows upon rows of sex-related information and stores. Are you interested in swinging? There are a couple informative booths around for some of the largest annual events out there. Are you more of a kinkster? Welcome to DNJToys’ kinky sex furniture or the Dungeon Experience area. Do you just want to purchase some sex toys with your partner? Check out the on-site Exxxotica store – or the large stores of many other retailers including RBoutique and more!

Of course, the crowning highlight of most Exxxotica events is the opportunity to meet your favorite adult stars face-to-face. Stars this year included Johnny Sins, Ron Jeremy, Stoya, Kissa Sins, Rubberdoll, Jesse Jane, Alexis Texas, Misty Stone, and more. I personally had the chance to meet and talk with Ron Jeremy, but it was really neat to see all of the stars around chatting with fans and whatnot. Most of the stars, for a small fee, allowed fans to take photos with the starlet.

Of course, Sexy Wrestling with Carmen Valentina and Its Cleo was one of the crowd-pleasers this year. At multiple times during each day of the event, these two adult starlets would wrestle each other in minimal clothing. After the show, they offered their own personalized “wrestling” experience to fans for a fee. Of course, that’s if your idea of “wrestling” includes two hot women grinding on top of you – as that’s what it was.

This year, Exxxotica also added a new tattoo area. Featuring some of the areas hottest tattoo artists, many of these artists were doing tattoos and taking orders right during the show. If you wanted to scope out a place to get your next tattoo done (or even do it right at the show!), there were quite a few tattoo artists at the event this year.

I’ll admit that I was a bit disappointed at the expo seems to have shrunk in size from last year. There seemed to be less interest in the kink and dungeon areas with a lot more focus on porn stars. For some people, that’s going to be fantastic! For myself, I was really into the shops and BDSM aspect of the conference. I’m hoping it is just a temporary thing for this year and that next year’s expo is even larger!

If Exxxotica is sounding pretty awesome to you (as it should!), don’t forget that 2016 still holds the Columbus, OH Exxxotica expo and the Edison, NJ expo this year. As Exxxotica has also had an annual expo here in Chicago since 2011, you can always wait until next year’s event as well!

Tantus Gary O2 Dildo Review

Tantus Gary O2 Dildo

Tantus Gary O2 Dildo

The Tantus Gary O2 dildo is a long, standard-width silicone dildo made from 100% pure silicone and designed for strap-on play. 1.5″ in width with an insertable with of 7″, the dildo is about 8″ in total length. Made from dual-density silicone, the interior of the toy is designed to be very firm to the touch and hold the toy in place – while the exterior of the toy is supposed to have a soft, realistic feel to it. The Gary O2 comes equipped with a flared base that makes it safe for anal play and great for strap-on play, and it’s available in three realistic skintone colors.

Packaging

The packaging for the Gary O2 matches up with all Tantus packaging. It comes in an open cardboard box that shows off the texture and the size of the dildo. The dildo itself is contained in a plastic molding that’s see-through. The packaging is square-shaped, and it provides a good amount of information about Tantus silicone and their company. The packaging, however, isn’t really designed to be used for long-term storage. While it gets your dildo to you safely, it’s a pretty big pain in the butt to open and close regularly, and the outer cardboard layer will start to tear.

Base of the Tantus Gary O2 Dildo

This silicone dildo was designed for strap-on pleasure. The base is smaller in footprint to fit into a harness easily, and the toy offers a longer length that makes it particularly useful in strap-on situations. It, of course, can be used outside of strap-on use as well.

The thickness

Speaking of silicone, the O2 is made from a dual-density design. This basically means that the outside of the dildo is slightly plushy while the interior is firm enough to allow the toy to hold its shape. It can bend in half relatively easily, and when stroking it, you’ll notice a slight bit of plush. While I love Tantus’s matte dildo design, I usually cover them with a condom. The matte texture can tend to ‘absorb’ lubricant really well, and when that lube is gone, a matte feeling just doesn’t feel good. Covering with a condom makes things a lot more slippery and pleasurable.

The texture of the shaft

The texture really does a fantastic job for realism. The most noticeable texture that can be felt during use is around the head. It has quite a few layers of “folded’ skin near the head that offers a noticeable-during-use sensation. Outside of that, most of hte veins and other details can’t be felt nearly as easily. They provide a lot of help for the realistic visual, but they aren’t much of an addition from the texture side.

Unlike some Tantus toys, this dildo’s base does not make room for a bullet vibrator. The base is entirely thick and filled in, so it doesn’t offer that hole that some Tantus toys offer. The base is also relatively slim in width as well – and quite firm. If you find that some bases feel too thick to fit between your thighs, you’re not going to have that problem with the Gary O2. Unfortunately, I find that the base is a bit too firm for my liking. If I don’t watch how the toy is positioning, it can actually end up making some areas a bit sore.

Texture along the head

Unlike a lot of Tantus dildos, I think the Gary O2 is a bit too heavy and tall to support its weight with the base design. If you’ll notice by the photos, it took a lot of finangaling to get the dildo to sit upright to take its picture. It’s top-heavy, and it likes to flop over. If you prefer putting your toys sitting up tall on their bases on the nightstand until you’re ready for them (to reduce dust/etc. that gets onto the surface), you’ll need a back-up plan. It’s not the end of the world, though; just a slight annoyance on my part.

Base of the Tantus Gary O2 Dildo

When it comes to how this dildo slides into a harness, it does a fantastic job. The dildo is perfectly shaped for use in most harnesses – even ones with a built-in O-ring without much of an issue. Due to the heft of the dildo (especially towards the tip), it doesn’t stand up straight up or even straight out. It tends to have more of a droopy sort of look to it. As many long cocks have a similar problem, it’s not a huge deal, but if you’re looking for an impressive, hands-free look, you won’t get that from the Gary O2. However, it stands up fine if you help support the base for more of that “grab your cock” type of pose. The silicone is rigid enough to hold its form without drooping – it’s just that the toy is so heavy that most harnesses won’t be able to be comfortable while being tight enough to hold the toy upright.

Where Gary O2 is really going to excel is for those who really love long, deep lengths – but DON’T want a wide toy. There aren’t a lot of toys that retain the average (albeit, slightly wider than average) width while going to much longer lengths like Gary O2 does. Whether you just really like deep sensations or you just want to look well-endowed, Gary O2 does a good job meeting those needs.

It’s also a particularly fantastic choice for plus-sized strap-on harness wearers. If you’re on the larger size of “plus size”, it means that you may have more tummy and hips that tend to get in the way of penetration, so a longer dildo can help you get deeper into your partner more easily.

Like all of the pure-silicone Tantus products, the Gary O2 dildo is really simple to clean. As a pure silicone dildo, it just requires using some warm water and anti-bacterial soap to get it through a regular cleaning. If you’re wanting to sterilize it, consider a water/bleach mixture or boiling the toy; you’ll want a large pot, though, as this dildo is a pretty decent length. I’ve used Wet Platinum silicone-based lubricant on this one, but I’d recommend sticking with water-based lubricants until you have a chance to spot test them on the silicone. For storage, Tantus Gary O2 has a bit of a habit of picking up a bit of hair and lint (though not horribly), so it seems best to keep it in a clean bag. I just tend to clean it off thoroughly before each use to get off any dust or fuzz that found its way there.

As a note, Tantus themselves recommend boiling or dishwasher cleaning due to the intricate texture of this particular dildo.

Overall, there’s no reason NOT to buy the Gary O2 dildo. It’s a fantastic toy for strap-on play, particularly well-suited to plus-size strap-on, offers average (but filling) width while being longer-than-average, and is very durable and body-safe. If your sex toys must sit upright or you dislike longer toys, this may not be your favorite, but otherwise, if the design intrigues you, get it! Thanks to Tantus for providing this long strap-on silicone dildo for my Gary O2 review.
