Become A Hardcore Leather Jock Today!

I would love to thank the leather manufacturer Kailash G. Exports for providing a Leather Jock Strap for this review. I’ve spoken about my love of underwear before and how much that I enjoy wearing it, as well as the confidence that they provide. What I haven’t done, is speak about types of underwear and how it can affect the aesthetic in the bedroom with the simplicity of flipping a switch. One of my favorite styles of underwear is without a doubt, the jock strap. Despite its simplicity, there’s just something about it which gets my blood pumping and my cock twitching –  it doesn’t matter if I’m the one wearing it, or my sexual partner, if there’s a jock strap involved there’s definitely going to be a very positive reaction. So when I was given a new leather jock strap to review you can only imagine the joy in my reaction.

So What Is A Jock Strap?

A jock strap is actually a lot older than what I thought it was. The word has been in use since the late 1800’s and it’s defined as underwear which supports male genitals during athletic sports. It usually has a waistband, with a pouch for the cock and balls and leaving everything else free and bare. Its most commonly used and worn in American sports, and it’s probably because of this that it has slowly become a fashionable icon for men to wear. It shows off the body, especially the ass, and highlights the male genitals. I can tell you now that I’ve had several fantasies involving sports teams and jock straps, and it’s just one of those things that really look good on a man.

The jock strap that I received was a soft leather design, with a front zipper and a bare ass. There is a red stripe on the front which go on either side of the zipper and this is accentuated by red piping on the edge of the pouch, which helps the jock stand out in the crowd. When it comes to bondage gear and toys, most people have a particular colour that they like. For example, the majority of my leather gear is red or blue, whilst my partner is generally green or yellow. The colours don’t really mean much in normal situations – though there are sometimes colour coded parties which people can attend and the colour will show off your fetish. Whilst the colours for my partner and I, aren’t fetish related, it means that we can separate our gear and colour coordinate ourselves for events, scenes, or when having other people over, or if we are switching. Red is my dominant colour and blue is my more submissive colour – though I do have other colours that I like to use depending on the type of fetish play that we are doing that day. Whilst it does mean that I then need more gear, it also means that my gear is then specifically tailored towards a particular fetish. Useful in the event that something happens during a scene, and especially useful for getting my head in the right space.

I Love The Zipper

I loved the addition of the zipper in this jock strap. The zipper is great because it meant that I could pull my cock out without having to take off the jock strap. Meaning, that I could easily sex, jerk off, or be stimulated without complete removal of the jock. Sure, I’m usually nervous as hell when doing the zipper back up, and I certainly wouldn’t want to be caught having to do it up in a hurry – but I like not having to take it off.  What I really like about this jock strap, is not only is the inside of the jock – super soft and supple, but there’s actually a small flap of leather that sits OVER the fly from the inside. What this does, is prevent any unfortunate accidents involving your dick and a fly – a surprisingly handy feature that I think should have been added to all jock straps before this point. The smell of leather whilst sucking cock, or having sex can be just as much of a turn on as the sex itself. Personally, there’s few things that I find to be hotter than having sex with a guy whilst he’s still wearing his jock strap – they’re super easy to either pull to the side, or unzip allowing easy access to all the important bits. I did find the thickness of the straps on this jock strap to be a little thicker than what I usually get and they’re not exactly my usual style- but when wearing them they did seem pretty comfortable.

That’s the thing with leather, bondage, kink and fetish gear. It’s not just about the gear, but it’s about the look of the gear. Bondage toys heavily lean towards providing a certain aesthetic. I mentioned earlier that I have different colours depending on the role, and the fetish that I am engaging with that day. It helps get into the ‘head space’ necessary to fully engage with fetish and bondage play. For example, if I’m wearing red which is usually the colour that I use for ‘domming’ then it would be harder for me to switch into ‘sub mode’ when wearing red. I feel more confident and in control wearing red – and as such I use the colours to help my head space. Colours and materials are therefore very important when it comes to fetish gear. So when I put on this leather jock strap with its red line, and had my cock hanging out – you knew exactly who was in charge and control of the situation. Not to mention the way that it hugged my cheeks and highlighted my ass. Sure, I could wear a similar jock strap made of white mesh fabric, but it’s not going to convey the same kind of message that a leather jock strap will. All in all, I enjoyed this jock strap – though it wasn’t the perfect fit. I’m not a small dude, but I did need a cock ring to achieve the ‘full’ look, without which – it wasn’t entirely flattering. But then I do acknowledge that it is difficult to get a perfect shaped pouch for a jock strap that fits snug and lifts in all the right ways (especially in leather) – and wearing a cock ring underneath these days is pretty expected for most scenes. So it wasn’t a big deal – but if you’re not used to wearing cock rings under your jock straps then you might have a little more of an issue with it.

A Rabbit That Kick-starts The P-Spot

Anal Sex Toy With Rabbit Ears

When it comes to sex toys, when you think of The Rabbit, you automatically think of sex toys for women. Which is why, when I was asked to do a review for The Rabbit Company, the first words out of my mouth were – are you sure this is for me? Having worked in an adult store before moving into education and IT, I was familiar with The Rabbit Company, and all I’d known them to do – was create a very concise range of rabbit vibrators for women. A little perplexed, yet curious at the same time, I checked out their website again and it became clear that they were expanding their range and creating new sex toys for women, and men. Their goal, of having a collection of the best rabbit vibrators on the market, had been reached and they were venturing into new and uncharted territory with prostate and anal sex toys for the boys. In this case, the sex toy being suggested to me was called The Prostate Rabbit, and it was an insertable, hands free prostate stimulation toy with a remote control. I’m always curious to see the male versions of luxury sex toys in comparison to their female counterparts because most of the time, it will either pass with flying colours or it will fall into heap and be left in the drawer of forgotten toys. So, being keen to try a new vibrator from a brand new range of sex toys, I let my curiosity reign and waited for its arrival.

Let me start out this review by saying that The Prostate Vibrator is not going to be a toy that’s going to be left in the forgotten drawer – I had fun with the features, the remote control, and the strength of the vibrations. However, there were a few things that have left me a little confused and we’ll go over them throughout the review. Let’s start off with the box. I’m a little torn here, because I actually love the box. I think it’s different, I think it’s simple and I feel that it does a great job in making an intimate toy seem so damn normal. It’s a white box with simple images, a little text that shows off what this vibrator can do – but it does so in an unobtrusive way, that isn’t about shoving sex in your face. Even if you’re not the greatest of readers – the box and its images makes it very clear as to what the sex toy inside looks like and its simplicity and quality makes it very reminiscent of high quality and luxury brands of vibrators.

Anal Sex Toy For The Prostate And Perenium
Sex Toy: The Rabbit Company The Prostate Rabbit

Where I get a little torn is in the marketing – and I can’t help but feel that they’re being a little too soft and cautious in the way that they’re presenting this prostate toy as well as trying to cover too many angles. It’s called The Prostate Rabbit, yet there’s a repeated information piece whereby it states that the stimulation is good for men and women. It goes on further to state that it provides a prostate massage for him, and anal or clitoral stimulation for her. So, is it a prostate vibrator or an anal sex toy or is it trying to be both? Maybe it’s just me, but despite being in a long term homosexual relationship, and maybe it’s because I’ve not really ever learnt how to share – but the majority of the time, my sex toys are my sex toys. Yes, I get the fact that the sex toy is made for silicone, and I completely understand that silicone sex toys can be shared between partners between cleans/sterilisation, but I’m not sure that I’m crazy hot on the idea of a specifically named prostate toy being marketed towards ‘couples’, and especially with a swapping between anal and vaginal stimulation. To me it kind of cheapens the idea of it being a ‘Prostate toy’.

The Hare Care Information

The Hare care information (isn’t that just cute), which shows you how to look after your rabbit is printed on the inside of the box, the website, and the instruction booklet – which I found to be not only really convenient, but also informative. It demonstrates that this company cares about you and your intimate products – but at no stage does it indicate that you need to clean and sterilise your sex toy between vaginal and anal stimulation. Sure, this might seem like common knowledge to a lot of people, but it’s still handy information to include and to ensure that there’s no accidental errors.

My Thoughts When I Opened The Box

Taking off the initial cardboard outer box, and I was left with a beautiful blue box which simply stated ‘The Rabbit Company’. A flip top side panel, and the box just popped on open. Inside was the prize. Sitting nestled in the box was the actual prostate toy, the remote control, the charger and the information booklet, it was all packaged really neatly and just looked a treat. I love the initial look of the prostate vibe. It was a tad thinner than what i was expecting and a quick tape measure showed that I was looking at a 4 inches in circumference, which is extremely reasonable and suited for people at all levels. The prostate arm has some flexibility to it, which meant that you’re definitely not restricted to sitting or laying in a certain position, when you’re using this. The bottom arm is a little firmer – whilst it does have a little flex in the small neck – it’s by no means as flexible as the top arm. This massager, unlike some other massagers out there – isn’t purely silicone. The very base of this toy is a white plastic strip – the purpose of which I’m not overly sure about – it’s cute in allowing a colour difference, and making the toy stand out just a little more. It is the attention to detail.

The Prostate Massager’s Small Bunny Ears

Now, what sets this toy apart from other prostate massagers are the small ears, and the stimulating ‘whiskers’. Do they do their job? When you turn the vibrator on and just hold it in your hand you can definitely feel the vibrations and when putting a finger lightly on the ears and whiskers, the ears are definitely a lot stronger which I found to be surprising. At this stage the ears were still confusing me – I understood the whiskers. But I wasn’t sure the angling of the ears would prove to be much benefit to me and my body. Nevertheless, lubing the toy up, I clicked it on for standby mode and slid it in and prepared. The controls were fairly simple, the middle button controlling the ears, the top vibration button controlling the prostate arm – and the vibration strength on the side. This is pretty powerful. It’s not my most powerful sex toy – but it certainly has enough strength to satisfy the majority of power loving men. The angle was a little off for me, and I had to manually adjust myself to ensure that I was getting the most out of the toy. I was most curious about the ‘clitoral’ ears and if I’m being perfectly honest – whilst I wasn’t a visual fan of them – they didn’t detract or add much to the sensations of the toy. I was completely indifferent to them. Sure, the vibrations were a little different on the perineum with the ears and it was fun, but I’m not sure that this was a feature that made or broke the sex toy – I was more than happy with the performance of the toy regardless of this feature.

What I loved was the strength, and the options with the remote. I’d been informed that I really needed to test the range on this remote control, so throwing the remote to the partner I told him to walk, and I’ve got to say. I was really impressed by the range of the remote. I was still rolling on the floor murmuring contentedly to the changing pulses when he was two rooms over. Keep in mind, that I do not have brick walls, and therefore cannot test the signal strength when it comes to this material. I’m not sure whether he heard something in my murmurings that I didn’t hear or whether he was just trying to be a smart ass, but I was nearing the edge and he decided to turn it off. Let’s just say that aside from this cheeky form of denial that my partner decided to try with the remote, that I enjoyed this prostate massager once it was out of the box.

What On Earth Is Sex Positive Teaching For Children?

Sex Education At School

Being trained as a teacher, I quickly learnt that my being in a classroom isn’t just to provide an academic education – but also in supplementing the learning that is provided at home regarding life, and the development of an individual. A great teacher is not just an educator, but we’re trained as, and develop into, a counsellor, a nurse, a sociologist, leaders, role models, and for the most part we have to be wearing all of these hats at once. Add to this the idea that in today’s classroom there is a full spectrum of abilities and skill sets and a great teacher must be able to provide differentiated teaching to fully support each individual child as they learn at their own pace and with respects to their ability. When you factor all of this in, a teacher is not just an academic educator, but they’re someone that a child looks up to as they grow and develop their personalities.

For this reason, when it comes to the important topics – a teacher must think carefully about, and reflect on, their behavior and approaches both within and outside the classroom. For the most part, a lesson isn’t just learned in the space of forty five minutes, it’s often reflected upon, applied to a concept repeatedly, and then accepted or dismissed whereby the response to that concept becomes routine. Considering that sometimes, a child will spend more time with their teacher on an average school week than with their parents, what role does the teacher have in a child’s development and learning?

What Is Sexual Education For Children?

I want to explore this with the idea of sexual education for children. An often hotly debated topic around the world, and arguably one of the most important. People’s reluctance to discuss sex, gender, sexuality, and even pleasure often means that children grow up obtaining their information from popular media, pornography, peers and the internet. Whilst this isn’t necessarily a bad thing when it is supplemented by proper education and discussions both within the classroom and at home, when used by themselves as a source of knowledge and learning, it can often be detrimental to an individual’s confidence, sexual ability and performance, and even their understanding of self in their macro and micro world. Children, for example, developing into a sexual being will often consume pornography without necessarily understanding that it is a performance. Numerous studies, including a Dutch study published in Journal of Sexual Medicine, have demonstrated the effects that pornography has on the way teenagers of both genders approach sexual activity – simply because they don’t necessarily understand the performance aspect of it. For this reason, as well as many others we’ll touch on today, when it comes to sexual education, one of the most important terms that people need to understand is sex positive learning.

Teachers are excellently placed to handle this discussion – since there are critical components in health and physical education that discuss reproduction, the body, biology, pregnancy and the science around that. Why then, can we not also lend the discussion of sexual education into examining concepts of consent, pleasure, satisfaction, health and happiness? Aren’t these all aspects of sex, especially since we are one of the few species in the world that engage in ‘reproduction’ for the act of pleasure as well?

Sex Positive Education For Children

What is sex positive learning and will it turn my child gay?

Contrary to popular belief by opponents of same sex marriage and institutions that do not necessarily agree with different types of relationships and genders, sex positive learning will not turn a child gay. It will not make them become transgender, and it will certainly not turn them into a deviant of some kind. Sex positivity is about a positive approach to sex and gender. It’s about the acceptance and acknowledgement of all consensual sexual activity and states of beings. It acknowledges the concept of pleasure within sexual activity, as well as the need for experimentation and learning. It’s both a simple, yet complex ‘movement’, and as we go along I’ll do my best to unpack the term.

In short, sex positive learning and teaching gives a child an understanding of the world around them. It helps them become more confident in themselves, and arguably increases their social skills because of this. Society has often been placed in a dichotomous world of male and female, gay and straight without taking into account the fluidity of gender and sexuality. For someone that doesn’t necessarily feel that they fit into this binary, they can quickly feel isolated, depressed and ashamed as they struggle to determine why they feel/act/are different than what society and everyone else around them is telling them that they must be. That’s one of the most isolating thing about the concept of labelling, especially in queer society – the diversification of labelling is both encompassing through its variety, but limiting in its exactness. Sex positivity is an essential component in understanding the diversification of the world and the uniqueness that makes us, us. It does this through not only understanding sex and sexual activity, but also discussing that dreaded concept of pleasure which we so frequently seem to ignore.

How can you engage in sex positive teaching?

It starts at home – and it starts at an early age. You’ve all seen the beautiful photos of cute babies holding hands, and being friends with other babies that are of a different gender or even race. Racism is learnt and is not an innate state of being. Throughout our childhood, and upbringing, we are conditioned to behave a certain way, and we pick up the traits of those around us, or are influenced by someone we hold dear. With this in mind, sex positive teaching begins early. There’s no one ‘talk’ that can initiate sex positivity, it’s a repeated conversation, it’s the way that we react to things, and it’s the language that we use to discuss it all. Take for example a small boy that repeatedly attempts to play with his genitals. We’ve all done it, we were all kids, and it’s just how we respond to that which is important. Traditionally, we might have responded with phrases such as ‘if you keep playing with it it’ll fall off’, or ‘that’s disgusting stop playing with it’ – phrases which instil a sense of shame and embarrassment, which creates negative experiences. He’s just exploring his body. A sex positive approach would be along the lines of – if you’re going to play with it, do it in private time. It’s not appropriate to do that in public. See the difference in the response? You’re acknowledging that it’s okay to do so, but that there is a time and place for these things. Sex positivity is about teaching correct terminology, teaching the concept of consent, and a variety of similar concepts. This is an example of sex positive teaching for a toddler, but how can that occur in the classroom?

As an English and History teacher, there were times when we would discuss characters, and the way people would live in the past. I consider this an excellent time to be mindful of my approaches and how I can supplement a child’s learning when it comes to the understanding of sex, sexuality and gender simply by making comparisons of the times, as well as including language that doesn’t reinforce the binary that they’re used to. Sex positive teaching can be as simple as not calling a unisex classroom ‘guys’, or it can be about acknowledging that pleasure is associated with sexual activity when examining the motivation of a character. It’s about being transparent, and not demonising sex, and doing all of this in an age appropriate manner. Some might ask – what role does a teacher have in all of this? Teachers are excellently placed to deliver this information as they go through their everyday teachings and often it’s a simple matter of adjusting language and the perceptions of certain activities. Such mindfulness can be complemented by attitudes, and education at home – answering the more personal specific questions as they develop and grow into mature beings.

By this stage you should have a basic enough idea of what sex positivity is. It’s a difficult concept to narrow down because of its broadness, as well as its interpretation to different people. From here, you need to look at sex positivity yourself. I’ve given you the toolset, I’ve provided you with the basic concepts – and from here on out it’s your own development, and self-awareness that will guide your relationship towards a sex positive attitude. There’s no right or wrong answer – so long as you keep the basic principles in mind regarding pleasure, contraception and sexual exploration. Teachers have it tough – we’re often damned if we do and damned if we don’t. So maybe, if we can take a step towards the right direction together, we can turn everyone, into great teachers.

A Very Bad Dragon’s Oral Serving

Bad Dragon's Oral Dildo

Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a nerd and that I love dick. So it’s no surprise that I’ve had my eyes on Bad Dragon Sex Toys for a very long time. They’re a company that, from when I first noticed them several years ago, have always seemed to be spoken highly of, had a reputation among my circle of friends and when longingly looking at the products that they stocked would both inspire an awe dropping look combined with profound arousal. For whatever reason though, I kept putting it off and didn’t take the plunge – but when I was asked if I wanted to do a review on a Bad Dragon product, well the speed of which my hand shot upwards would have put The Flash to shame. So what is it about Bad Dragon?

They’re a company that has a solid base in the fantasy community. And this is a community that can amass a cult like following on a lot of things out there. From the BD website, you can read that they were founded in the late 00’s for a love of all things fantasy and through the understanding that there just wasn’t a lot of fantasy themed adult toys out there and that’s true to this day. When you’re looking at dildos and sex toys whilst there’s an overabundance of choice in sex toys that mimic the look of human genitalia, when it comes to something that looks a little less human or something that stands out from the crowd – there’s a lot less choice.

There was a niche that wasn’t being filled and Bad Dragon was determined to fly in to the rescue. Unlike a lot of other companies out there, Bad Dragon not only offers something that sits outside of the box, but they also offer an extensive level of customisation. So when I was offered the chance to select one I honestly did not know where to start. Not only did they all look amazing, but then they had the options of size, colour, and then firmness!  I absolutely love this attention to detail. It’s not so much of a ‘pick a cock that looks like every other cock from the wall and take it home’ kind of moment. But from start to finish, it’s like you have a direct hand in the creation of this sex toy, and this is something that very much reminds me of the cognitive thought processes of the ‘Ikea Effect’ – whereby individuals place a high value on things that they have partially created. It’s an amazing marketing POV and it fits right in this niche market they’re filling. Sure, the base design is something you pick – but from that moment of selecting the base design, you can take your dildo to the edges of your imagination and beyond as you customise it to your own tastes. It’s a shit load of fun. Stressful as you try and get the perfect design, but immensely fun.

Fantasy Sex Toy Tongue By Bad Dragon
Sex Toy: Winston’s Tongue

After going through endlessly on their website I ended up selecting the Winston’s Tongue. It appealed to me with its smoothness, the detailing of the jaw, the curvature and the super-hot idea of a dragon tongue on my ass. My complete order was the tongue in Small, Medium Firmness and in blue signature. I wasn’t overly sure about the firmness, and this is one of the things about ordering a sex toy from an online website – you’re just not always sure what to expect. So I just rolled with it.

Fast forward a week or so later and the box arrived. I was stunned with what was inside. Not only had I been sent the dildo, but I’d also been sent some Dragon Cum Lube in White, Sex Toy Cleaner and a Key Ring. Talk about going the extra leg and really going all out and I was pleasantly surprised.

Bad Dragon’s Cum Lube

Now, before we get to the dildo, I want to talk about the Cum Lube. Because it’s just amazing and it certainly deserves a mention. Whilst I wasn’t expecting it – this is one super fun lubricant and right off the bat, I’ll admit its shot up to the top of my favourite personal lubricants. It’s hot, it’s sexy, it’s messy as all hell but it’s just so fitting.  I was in the shower when I first tried it and the sex toy and I had streaks of it going left, right and just all over the place. It’s exactly what you’d expect if Spiderman ejaculated into your hand a “sticky” wet mess and what amazes me most, is that its water based. I’ve hated water based lubricants and the only reason that I ever use it is for sex toys. I hate the smell, the tackiness and it’s just shit. This however, is durable and by the photos it seems sticky and in a way it is, but it’s not tacky. It’s slick, and stretchy and sinuous and I can’t say that I’ve ever had as much fun playing with lubricant as I did when I got my hands on this. A wet lubricant, slick and fun. If you’re considering getting a Bad Dragon dildo because you think the fantasy element is hot, then you’re going to need this Dragon Cum Lube too, because the two go together like butter on hot toast.

What I Love About My Winston’s Tongue

Now… the tongue. I chose the tongue because it wasn’t a cock, and I was really looking for something different. This is pitched as an oral expert and a cunning linguist, and it was certainly something that I was intrigued by. I loved the look of it, the colour I chose looked amazing, and unlike a lot of the other variants – this one was smooth. I went smooth because I admit, I wasn’t sure just how the silicone was going to be, and the ribbing on the underside of the tongue looked like it was going to be fun. I have a few silicone sex toys and whilst some are super soft and squishy, others are hurtfully hard with prolonged use. When I got this in my hands, I was surprised at the flexibility of the sex toy, the softness and the way it felt. Don’t get me wrong, this tongue wasn’t a marshmallow but nor was it a solid rock and it felt good. I just love the detailing on it, despite the simplicity of it. The top of the tongue has a muscle like groove in the middle which extends towards the tip before petering out. Running your fingers along this, leaving a trail of lubricant behind and you can almost imagine that you’re stroking a tongue of some creature – it’s so cool. Even more so that when you reach the top of the tongue, that it just moves with you. On the other side, the back of the tongue has ribbing on either side of the ‘muscle’. Subtle enough to not be over the top, but not so subtle so as not to be felt. While the shaft is fairly standard, it’s the ‘housing’ of the shaft which really sets this apart in my world, for it’s a tongue, coming out of a dragons mouth. From the flared nostrils of the dragon, to the teeth on either side of the tongue – did I mention that this was hot?

The tongue is, in my opinion, perfectly shaped and curved. The faded blue to dark blue that I ordered simply doing its part in = making the sex toy look stunning. The tip on the tongue is quite thin, and very, very flexible. They’re dead right in the sense that this has been built with oral pleasures in mind. During one session I lubed up this tongue with the Cum Lube, put the tip against my body and let it ‘lick’ my thighs and worked it slowly up. Between the flexibility of the tongue, and the lubricant not only was it leaving a delightful strand of realistic looking cum that just sits against your skin – but it felt amazing. The way that the tip of the tongue is grooved like a muscle and the way it just ‘responds’ to a little pressure – well, this is fast becoming one of my most used and favourite sex toys.

A Dildo Barking With Pleasure

Yellow Fox Cartoon

One of the things about living in Australia is that when it comes to sex niches, fetishes, and specialized sex toys – they’re difficult to find. Not only does Australia have a small population in comparison to the US and European market but our population density makes fetish play with anyone really, to be exceptionally difficult. So when I was asked if I wanted to review a dildo that had been made with the furry fetish in mind. I jumped on the opportunity.

For those familiar, or unfamiliar with the term – Furries are a sub culture within society which is often grossly misunderstood, which is a trend that continually reoccurs across a variety of different fetishes and sub communities. Part of the problem is the media representation of such groups, and the other part of the issue comes down to simply not having enough knowledge. People thereby make assumptions, in turn perpetuating a mistruth. So in that regard, this review is not just going to be about a product. But it’s going to be about a product, the importance of the product, and why it fits in within a specific community.

Firstly, let’s have a quick look at the furry culture. Furry culture as a whole is often seen as a hyper sexualised state of being whereby humans dress as anthropomorphic animals and engage in depraved sexual activities. The assumption is that furries either want to be animals or have sex with animals. Wrong. The furry world IS interested in dress ups/cosplay/acting as an anthropomorphised animal, whereby you’re giving an animal human qualities, but it’s not an inherently sexual activity. It’s about expression. It’s about identification. It’s about having fun. Most of all, however, it’s about community. It’s about letting go of yourself and embracing something different. This ‘letting go’ aspect, is something which relates to a lot of fetish communities and diverse sexual practices, and can easily be related to the concept of ‘head space’ within BDSM. The idea of letting yourself go, enjoying the moment and simply be in a state of being. So where does the sex come in?

One of the great things about the furry community is the diversity. It’s not a subculture that is limited to a specific sexuality or gender and indeed, anyone can identify as a furry. ‘Furry’ sex, whilst part of the community, isn’t ‘Furry’ at all and this is where the majority of people become confused. Furry culture specifically relates to the roleplaying as an anthropomorphised animal – it doesn’t encompass sex at all. Sex, instead comes under a sub-section of the furry community called Yiff/Yiffin/Yiffy. This is the subculture where you’ll find sexualised porn involving anime with anthropomorphised animals. Yiff porn, is quite popular and in a way related to tentacle porn – yet it often receives a bad rap for being grotesque, weird, and relating to bestiality. In short, it doesn’t. It’s simply about adopting the persona of an animal and role playing that – albeit with sexual intent.

With that in mind, I was super excited to be given the opportunity to provide an honest review on a Yiff dildo. Before we get to that, let’s ask the quick question so what makes a yiff cock? A yiff cock is generally divided into three separate parts; the shaft, the knot, and the base. A yiff cock isn’t necessarily meant to go all the way in, the knot would generally prevent the entire sex toy from being inserted, or if you’re capable of handling the sudden extra width, would provide that final bit of stimulation which would just make your muscles pulse (Caution is advised – don’t just rush this bit). I’m also very confident that with the right cock ring the majority can be attached to a strap on, and be used as a strap on sex toy as well. Which then means that the sex toy can be used within a role play session and used with ‘animalistic pleasure’ at a moment’s notice. If you’re looking at yiff toys, double check this. I know with my one – I could certainly do this.

Going back to my excitement, I was asked to pick a silicone sex toy from the Furrystyle website which is a brand that is owned by Yiffytoys. It took me ages to narrow down a specific sex toy that I wanted to try, because they all looked pretty awesome. In the end, I went based on size, and picked the runt which I thought would be pretty reasonable without tearing me in half. I’m really not one for overly large sex toys.

I sent off the request and eagerly waited for its arrival. When it arrived I tore open the box with excitement and anticipation – and I’m going to be brutally honest – I was a little disappointed. Firstly, let’s talk about the packaging. You’re in a beautifully niche market, with specialised sex toys and people that would be actively searching for this. I received my sex toy in a clear packaged bag with a small piece of cardboard attached to the top. It was bland, it was simple, and I thought it very much a wasted opportunity. Furry culture, arguably, has a history in anime and pop culture fiction and artistic works. This would be a fabulous opportunity to create a beautiful box, decorated in anime style and pop culture references that could be used as a collection piece for the sex toy. Not just a plastic stapled with cardboard and I thought it a wasted opportunity to really set this sex toy apart within the market. At the very least, the cardboard strip could be decorated or changed from the current plainness without drastically increasing costs.

The point was made that a packaging change would increase the costs of this product and that brings me to a point that I did not mention in the original review and which I’d like to point out. I do take the point that this is an extremely affordable product considering the quality of the material that they’ve used. Currently, other sex toys that I have cost 2-3 times more than this and the material does not feel as anywhere near as good as the silicone used on the Runt.

Secondly… the size. When I first wrote this review I had noted that there was a slight difference in the measurements between the parent company website and the FurryStyle website with one being labelled in Inches and the other in centimetres. As a result of this – *I* had made a mistake in the maths when working out the size. I fully acknowledge the mistake that I made with the initial publishing of my review and as a result of having the error pointed out to me, I have subsequently changed this paragraph. I would also note that credit must be given to the company which also noted the discrepancy I had pointed out and corrected it – immediately adjusting the sizes on their website to the decimal point, and making the measurements across the two websites to be the same to avoid the same error that I had made. There’s not a lot of companies that actively listen to their consumers and the fact that FurryStyle / YiffyToys took notice and immediately adjusted the website just demonstrates their commitment to customer service and satisfaction. When I first saw the sex toy I was a little worried about the smallness of the size, granted the sex toy is called the runt and this was a smaller than my preferred size for sex toys. But – despite my initial disappointment at the size I really needn’t have worried too much.

For I have to admit. It was fucking hot. Yes, I’d have loved for it to be a little thicker, but when you grip this sex toy between your hands and squeeze – it felt amazing. It was soft, squishy and I was still really looking forward to lubing it up and going to town. It reminded me in a way, of one of my ex’s. A delightful lad who I nicknamed rabbit – he had two speeds of thrusting; on and off. But most of all, I loved how it was different, I loved that it didn’t just look like a dick and if I’m being totally honest – there was the enjoyment of the naughty/taboo nature of it all. Sparing you all the intimate and hot details of the session – the flexibility of the shaft meant that with just a little tweaking the sex toy was hitting the right spots very quickly. Again, I’d have loved for it to be just a tad thicker, but I was surprised at how fun this was. I was also surprised with how quickly this brought me to barking with pleasure. Who knew that small things could be so much fun?

Overall, I loved it. I liked the look, I liked the softness and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Despite the size – I have every intention of playing with it again and potentially even upgrading it to one with a little more… Woof
