#FunFindFriday: The Dragon by Traz

 

 

When I entered the sex toy industry 10+ years ago there wasn’t a lot available in the realm of penis oriented masturbation products. Sure, there were more than a handful of decent options, but for the most part the products being made weren’t body safe, looked cheap, tacky, or hideous, and didn’t make much of an effort to be original, let alone inspired. Thankfully things have progressed and a variety of devices have made their way to market offering new and innovative ways to get off… enter The Dragon by Traz!

Needing to know more about the colorful and intriguing design, I went right to the source, asking the Marketing Chief at Traz if he’d be willing answer a bunch of questions about The Dragon. Thankfully he very graciously obliged. Big thanks to Craig for taking time out of his busy schedule, I totally appreciate it.

The Dragon by Traz - Swinger

The Swinger by Traz

1. What motivated you to create ‘The Dragon’?

While there are plenty of masturbation devices to choose from, it’s just one sensation. Meaning whatever the design and texture of the canal, that’s what you feel … over and over and over. We’re all about our customers and and it just seems unfair that in order get more than one sensation, you need to buy more than one device or multiple sleeves for the same device. And that can get expensive in a hurry. So we developed The Dragon to give users the choice of pretty much unlimited sensations … or as we refer to them, hundreds to thousands of fantasies all in one masturbation device.

Just like you like to change it up with your partner … why shouldn’t you be able to do that when masturbating? We did some basic calculations based on our most popular Dragon model, The Swinger – it provides 385 different experiences. Someone would have to spend over $26,000 dollars to get that many different masturbation devices. We’re not even sure if there are 385 different such devices available. So, it’s about putting freedom in the hands of our customers when it comes to how they want to orgasm.

2. How is The Dragon by Traz different from other products on the market?

Two big differences make The Dragon by Traz the most advanced masturbation device … ever. First, you can enter from either end. The Dragon by Traz accommodates a different orifice at each end … it’s dual entry. Secondly, five distinct, interchangeable pleasure rings are housed in The Dragon’s “Fantasy Silo.”

Let’s start with the benefit of “dual entry”. Imagine you’re rocking along and you’ve penetrated through the vagina orifice, but you want to switch it up mid-stream … you simply flip over The Dragon by Traz and and slide in through the butt or mouth orifice. It’s just that easy. But, that’s just the start. I mentioned the five distinct pleasure rings. Each ring has a different diameter opening as well as a distinct textured canal creating a different sensation. For example, take the “Give and Go” ring. You’ll swear there are four free floating fingers twisting and wrapping around your shaft as you move in and out. And here’s how users can have many, many different fantasies. Simply change the order the rings in the “Fantasy Silo.” It clicks open and you can rearrange them in any order. Remember – each ring is unique – different size opening and different textured canal. This means different sensations as you move back and forth through each one. It’s really mind blowing.

And get this, users can choose two different style opening diameters, depending on their preference – there’s “just right” and “super tight.” Customers can specify their choice when ordering.

Also, we know people like it different ways, so we designed three offices for The Dragon – Vagina, Mouth and Butt. That also leads to the every increasing number of fantasies available for everyone that wants to “ride the Dragon.” Also, customers will have no problem distinguishing one pleasure ring from another with just a glance. Each are a different color.

3. Speaking about the pleasure rings, each of them look amazingly detailed, what was the process/how long did they take to craft, and how did you choose each design?

First we polled users to get a sense of what sensations they found most pleasurable, most exiting and stimulating. As you can imagine we heard a lot of varying answers, descriptions and desires. We also asked them to describe the sensations of three different types of penetration; vaginal, oral and anal. We used those answers to help influence our designs. Take for example the description I used earlier for the “Give and Go” pleasure ring. Many we asked described that slight twisting action partners will use when giving them a hand job and also during oral sex. We took that data and then set out to design an inner set of textures to try and duplicate that sensation.

It took us about 14 months of literally about 150 different prototype molds to come up with our first set of 15 rings. As part of this initial launch we’ve introduced the first set of five. As mentioned previously we created two versions of those first five – “just right” and “super tight.” We’ll release the next set of five sometime in late Spring and the third set at the beginning of Fall.

For those interested in each of the The Dragons pleasure rings sensations, here’s what they feel like (*color coded to match the rings):

  • Pleasure N’ Pleasure – That real vagina sensation comes from 8 mini rings within the ring – four tight and four a little looser.
  • Ten and One – It’s like being licked as you move into a tighter center. The dual ribs on both side of the narrowing shaft really do a number.
  • Full Throttle – You get that gentle grip and drag sensation found only in a real partner.
  • Stacked Desire – A little pull and tug action from three softly ribbed openings.
  • Give and Go – It’s like the best hand job you ever had … you know that twisting action that really heightens how it feels.

4. Why did you choose silicone material over other available options?

When we founded the company, we purposely decided to make the highest quality adult toys possible. And today, the absolute best material is medical grade silicone. First and foremost it is body-safe. Also, it’s durable requiring no special powders, creams, etc. to keep it in pristine condition. Clean-up is snap – simply use soap and water.

5. What can we look forward to in the future from Traz?

We’re developing a new version of our Rhino Penis Extension. Customers have asked if we could create an extension that worked as well as the original Rhino, but looked more like a real penis. It was important to first determine if our patented “no slip grip” design would perform as it does with the original Rhino’s more cylindrical shape. I’m happy to report we have a working prototype that we will put into production in late March. If your readers have suggestions for what they think would be a good name, we’d love to hear them!

#FunFindFriday: Hole Punch Toys

I really do hate to admit it, but after 8+ years of working in the industry I’ve started to grow bored with the vast majority of non-vibrating sex toys on the market.

That isn’t to say I think everything is bland, just that many of the highly accessible and heavily advertised ones are surprisingly uninspiring; there’s little attention paid to originality, the color choices are lackluster, there’s no freedom of artistic expression, and damn near all of them have no kick or imagination.

Talent. I’ve been missing talentcreativity… and vision.

Of course there are companies like Babes ‘N Horny, BS Is Nice, Whipspider Rubberworks, Vixen Creations,Vibeology, NobEssence, Divine Interventions, Bad Dragon, Fun Factory, Tantus, and Crystal Delights keeping it real and fresh, but in an industry that’s slowly starting to recognize and embrace smaller companies, there’s definitely room for more.

holepunchtoyscarrot

Enter this weeks #FunFindFriday: Hole Punch Toys, the designer behind some seriously fun and colorful artisanal small batch silicone sex toys, molded and poured by hand, one by one, in an art studio in St. Paul, Minnesota.

From playful radishes to carrot butt plugs, ice cream cones, stunning blue rockets, tri-colored popsicles, and a sleek blacked-out Nun, Hole Punch Toys has most of the bases covered when it comes to mixing art and pleasure.

The uniqueness doesn’t end there, unlike large volume manufactures each is made to order, and details like color are subject to the creators whim at the time of pouring. If he’s in a translucent grass-green mood, that is what you’ll get. Hunter green today? There you go. I have to admit, judging by this misfit box of toys or these white chocolate lookalikes, I’d be more than happy to get something completely my own.

Have an idea for a toy you’d like made? You’ve come to the right place, Bespoke toys are something they do. Just get in contact with a brief description of your idea, and if it’s something that can be done they’ll gladly work with you to make it happen. It’ll probably cost you a pretty penny, but there are times when it’s worth it. This is one of them.

Needing to know more I went right to the source, asking the creator if he’d answer a bunch of questions about Hole Punch Toys, the concept behind the designs, how the toys are made, etc. and he very graciously obliged. Big thanks to Colin for taking time out of his busy schedule, I totally appreciate it.

rocketholepunch1.) Who is Hole Punch Toys?

Hole Punch Toys are an extension of Hole Punch Studio, which is an arbitrary name assigned, for beuroctaric and advertising reasons, to the art I produce. I, being me, Colin. Primarily visual art, both two and three dimentiomal, audio visual, or in this case, silicone. I create one hundred percent of the material associated with Hole Punch Toys, with the exception of some borrowed imagery used in digital assemblages for labels and such.

2.) What motivated you to create Hole Punch Toys?

The same thing that motivates any creative endeavor I think. The challenge of bringing something that exist in your imagination into physical being. The process of making.  I suppose having sex toys in my head to begin with is telling of something, but I’ll leave that for another discussion.

hole punch radish3.) What sets Hole Punch Toys apart from other manufacturers?

It depends. If you are asking about the business as an entity, I would say that the main difference is in production capability.  This is a one person operation. I pour and package each piece to order in my free time which means each piece is approached as a singular object, made from a singular batch of silicone and tinted individually. That could all change of course, but for now, that is how it is.

If you are asking about the toys themselves, I DO NOT differentiate them from other silicone toys of this nature.

I think there is room for as many designs in this world as there are minds and the bodies attached to them. Not everything is for everybody. If someone likes what I make,  that’s fantastic. If not, that’s great also. Although it will hurt me deeply and might make me cry.

teeny creemee hole punch4.) Where do you draw inspiration for your designs from?

It is pretty plain to see my designs don’t come from a very high minded place.  Although I have appreciation for so called “fine art”,  I seem to have been impacted most deeply by the images and symbology of pop culture, from Saturday morning cartoons and comics to advertising imagery and the beauty of everyday objects.

All my art seems to be an effort to break down images and forms into their simplest components, which works well in designing insertables, where detail and complex shapes are not optimal. It suits my style, if I could be bold enough to think I have one.

#FunFindFriday: Rainbow Sex Toys

With Gay Pride Month in full effect, Toronto has been infused with color like I’ve never seen before. From banks to fast food chains, crosswalks to libraries, even the CN tower, everywhere I look, I see RAINBOWS!

Not that I’m complaining, I actually wish this was a regular occurrence rather than something reserved for one acceptance and love filled week of the year.  But it’s not. So, while they’re here I’m going to take in as many rainbow sightings as I can… which got me thinking about rainbow sex toys and the like, ’cause you know, that’s just how I do. #sexonthebrain

For those of you like me, needing a few more shades of fun in your life, here’s a little collection of all the rainbow sex toys I found floating around on the internets. There aren’t many, but the fact that some exist makes me happy beyond words.rainbowdildos

You Can Haz All The Rainbow Sex Toys!

BS Atelier Pride Rainbow Dildos: $50 – $90

If there were ever a set of dildos that reminded me of Pink Floyds ‘Dark Side Of The Moon‘, the Pride Rainbow versions from BS Atelier would be first on the list.

Crafted by hand in Madrid, Spain, each of the dildos in the Pride Collection is unique, sporting sleek black shafts, curved bodies for g-spot stimulation, and rounded bases perfect for strap-on or anal play.   Like Kusama and Amor (dildos mentioned below), the stripes are defined with little to no bleeding, and contain all the shades you’d hope to find in a ‘traditional’ rainbow.

Whether you’re a fan the legendary rock band, or just someone who prefers a modern design, these sophisticated beauties are a must for anyone wanting a hint of a rainbow, without going overboard.

Newly added to their roster as part of the 2016 collection are the stunning ‘Alex’ dildo available in blue, grey, and pink, the ‘Bingo’ butt plug in blue or pink, and the ‘Bobo’ butt plug in a stunning true rainbow coloration (all pictured below).

I WANT THEM ALL.

Babes N Horny KusamaBabes ‘N Horny Kusama: £80

Okay, so it’s not your typical red, orange, yellow, green, blue etc rainbow, but it’s close, and that’s good enough for me.

Like the Amor (mentioned below), Kusamas hand-poured stripes stand apart, bright and bold, with no bleeding or fading into the next. It’s playful, stunning, and certainly eye catching.

As for the specifics, the silicone is pliant with a decent amount of squish and give, has a lovely matte texture that’s smooth to the touch, and boasts a flared base for strap-on or anal use. Oh, and did I mention it’s uber comfortable and easy to use? ‘Cause it is.

Curious? Check my Kusama review.


Unitorn Rainbow Horn DildosRainbow Unicorn Horn: $43 – $120

According to legend, Unicorns are a perfect combination of ‘male’ and ‘female’ energies, rich in the symbolism of opposites, reflecting an archetypal primal energy at play in our own lives.

Okay, I’ll admit that sounds a little hokey, but that doesn’t mean these stunning rainbow unicorn horn dildos from Split Peaches wouldn’t be a worthy addition to anyone’s collection, regardless of gender.

rainbow dildo rivetorUnlike the previous two dildos, you’re not going to find straight cut edges or a defined rainbow – instead what you’ll get is a lovely subtle flow from one color to the next, with a gradual fading. Considering each of these beauties is hand poured in the U.S. it’s only to be expected, and part of what makes them so unique.

Of course rainbow offerings aren’t limited to unicorn horns; inspired by the steaming hot riveted steel boiler plates found in the industrial furnace, their newest edition, ‘The Rivetor‘  (pictured left), is the first in a line of steampunk sex toys.

The curved shaft and studded head provide serious g-spot stimulation, while the flared base makes it excellent for anal play or use in a harness. My suggestion, rather than thrusting, try twirling it while inserted… with enough lube I’m sure the texturing would feel amazing.


RaPride dildo rainbowinbow Colour Pleasures & Official Pride Dildo $40 – $50

When it comes to rainbow dildos that’s are a little more ‘realistic’ you’ll definitely want to check out the new Color Pleasures rainbow dildo by NS Novelties. They’re truly stunning!

Since 2011 the Fun Factory Rainbow Amor (mentioned last in this post) has been my ultimate favorite rainbow dildo for a very specific reason: the colouring found on the shaft is clean cut, with precise definition, offering no bleeding from one shade to the next.

Rainbow Sex ToysBasically, it makes the perfectionist in me ridiculously happy.  Unfortunately the Amor is no more – as in, it’s no longer being manufactured – leaving this beauty to take it’s place in my heart.

Granted the design is completely different from the Amor, but that doesn’t mean it’s not as good; the medical grade silicone is velvety soft to the touch yet firm enough for effortless penetration, it’s easy to care for and clean, has a suction cup base so you can use it on any surface, and for those that like options – it comes in large and small.

Or, for those that prefer something without balls… there’s the official ‘Pride dildo’ (pictured above right).


Rainbow Sex Toys Knob Job DildoAbstract Rainbow Dildos: $24 – $55

As a fan of abstract design (and discreet sex toys), I can’t help but love the Rainbow Knob Job dildo. The super fun colorful shaft is on point, pleasing the perfectionist in me, while the tapered and bumpy heads, ribbed contoured shaft, and 8.5 inches in length to play with leave me very curious about the sensations this silicone toy would provide.

Rainbow Sex Toys Beaded Shaft DildoEven more discreet is the bright and playful Rainbow Beads dildo (pictured right).

Measuring  7 inches in length and crafted out of body safe silicone, the shaft sports 7 ribs offering continual stimulation with each thrust. Like most of my other fave rainbow sex toys, the bright neon coloring is perfect with no bleeding from one shade to the next – not that it has any impact on the way the toy feels, but visually it’s quite superb.

Having said that, the description on Amazon contains the words “Anal Plug”, something I highly disagree with being that there is no base to stop it from potentially venturing inward and getting stuck. Sure, the rounded bumps might provide some tension, but in my opinion it’s just not worth the risk. In a nutshell, play all you want vaginally, just don’t stick it in yer butt.

 


Rainbow Butt Plugs: $33 – $44

ttamagerainbowplugIf butt plugs are more your thing, along with glass, look no further than the handmade creations found on the Ttamage Etsy store.

Although the colors aren’t as bright and predominant as the previous dildo, the delicate rainbow swirl is just breathtaking, and being crafted by hand, I’m pretty sure each plug is fairly unique.

The plugs come in small and large, are crafted from solid Pyrex glass (making them pretty damn sturdy), moderately sized where girth is considered, and have bases so they’re safe for use anally.

Rainbows in my ass? Yes please!


Rainbow Sex Toys: Rainbow Tail PlugRainbow Tail Plugs – $32 – $55

Speaking of butt toys, I recently found these stunning and oh-so-fun rainbow tail plugs that take it to the next level.

Rainbow Sex Toys: Pony Tail Butt PlugSure, you can find real fur ones online, but as someone that doesn’t like the idea of having part of a dead animal hanging from my ass cheeks I’ve opted for the less cruel faux fur option.

Crafted out of body safe silicone, each plug offers a tapered tip that slides into place with ease, eliminating discomfort or the worry of product toxicity.

Whether you’re into pony play, cosplay, have a unicorn fetish, are a Brony, or simply like to try new things, these rainbow tail plugs are absolutely perfect for whatever your little heart desires. Personally I love the fluffy version to the left since it’s true to typical ‘rainbow’ color order, but the one to the right isn’t a bad option if you’re not as picky as I am.

 


Rainbow Vibrating Tongue Ring: $27

Insertables not quite your thing?  Enjoy oral, whether giving or receiving?… have your tongue pierced (does anyone still do that?)? If you answered yes to those questions then this rainbow colored vibrating tongue ring might just be right up your alley.

Lix Vibrating Tongue RingI know some of you are looking at it and probably thinking “ouch, those pokey things look scary“, but I promise you they’re not; I had a pink one years ago (yes, I had my tongue pierced) and never had any issues. Instead of being made of hard plastic, the little nubs are a glossy silicone that’s firm but supple and slightly stretchy. To be honest, pulling on them is kind of addictive, so here’s your fair warning; if you pull hard enough they will come off. Basically, don’t pick.

Unfortunately getting it in place can be a little tricky since you’ll have to turn it on, then slide it in your tongue, then screw on the bottom ball, all while your tongue is jiggling like a bowl of jelly. Of course you could insert it when it’s not vibrating, but turning it on once it’s in your mouth is actually harder. Who knew?

Regardless, it’s way better than this vibrating tongue ring, or this stupid thing.


Tantus Asteroid, Comet, & MeteoriteTantus Comet: $37 – $67

With popping tones of lime green, fluorescent orange, and opaque fuschia, Comet, Asteroid, and Meteorite look like the start of a rainbow, one that forgot what followed, but in the most perfect of ways.

Tantus AsteroidUnlike the clean cut lines found on Kusama and Amor, Tantus’ versions are much less dramatic, with the trio of shades gently fading into each other to create a much softer effect. They’re simple, and that’s part of their charm.

Tantus MeteoriteLike all of my fave Tantus toys they’re totally body safe, won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria, can be fully sterilized when it comes to cleaning, and will last a lifetime with a minimum amount of care (saving you money in the long run).

If minimalism is your thing, you need one of these in your life. Fuck it, you need all three!

Check my review of the Tantus Meteorite… here’s a spoiler; there was absolutely no prepping involved, and it was glorious.


The Rainbow Amor Dildo: $65

*sadly rainbow amor is no  longer available.

This stunning little number has been a favorite of mine since I laid eyes on it back in 2011. I coveted it, begged for it, almost going so far as to offer up my first born just to get the chance to review it (I hoard sex toys, what can I say). Fortunately things didn’t get that extreme, and before I knew it I had it in my hot little hands.

From start to finish this dildo is everything I could ask for; there’s no bleeding of shades from one to the next, it’s crafted from body safe silicone (Fun Factory, thank you for making this!), it’s neither too big nor too small, AND it has every color perfectly distributed just like a real rainbow should.

FYI, it’s one of the only toys that’s been in my bedside drawer 3 years straight. For someone that literally owns bins of sex toys, that counts for something.

Here’s my review of the rainbow amor dildo, just in case you had any questions.


Miscellaneous Rainbow Goodness!

Of course dildos, butt plugs, and tongue rings aren’t the only rainbow clad goodies available…

For those with a Unicorn fetish, the rainbow horn dildos by Split Peaches aren’t your only option. If you really want to commit, take it all the way and snag yourself a rainbow unicorn mask (pictured below). There’s a few to choose from, it’s just a matter of whether you want to go legit hardcore unicorn or the adorable unicorn route. And, if you’re gonna go that far you might as well buy a rainbow wig + tail set and call it a day. Though personally, I’d prefer a rainbow cat tail and some fluffy rainbow ears to match.

If burlesque, playing dress up with rainbows, role playing, or running around half naked is more your thing, there’s tons of fun stuff like rainbow pasties, rainbow wigs, sparkly rainbow rhinestone pasties, rainbow tutu’s, stockings, a one piece rainbow body suit, and cock socks to search through. Or, if you’re the creative type why not try your hand at some body art with a rainbow liquid latex paint kit (always make sure there’s no latex allergies before using). Regardless of what you’re specifically looking for I’m pretty sure you can find it if you know where to look.

#FunFindFriday: Introducing Bound by SheVibe/Vibeology

If you’re not in the habit of checking the sex toy scene on a regular basis you probably haven’t seen the badass new dildo that just popped up, it’s unbelievable… both in detail and design. Oh, and fyi, it’s the byproduct of two of my absolute most favourite companies ever.

This is a BIG DEAL!

Without further ado, let me introduce you to Bound by Vibeology, designed by the Superhero retailers over at Shevibe, manufactured and distributed by one of the worlds leading silicone toy companies, Tantus. That right there just screams quality!

Now I’m sure a lot of you are reading this and wondering, ‘with millions of dildos on the market, what makes this toy so special?’

Rather than answering the question myself I went right to the source, asking the good folks at SheVibe if they’d answer a bunch of questions about Vibeology, Bound, the process of getting the toy made, amongst other things, and they very graciously obliged.

Bound-by-SheVibe-Image

1.) Why did you create Vibeology?

Bound by SheVibe We always knew we would reach beyond just being SheVibe (although that has been an incredible gift).  We knew we wanted to have a design presence and Vibeology seemed like a great name to encompass many different projects and ideas.  So we trademarked it a few years ago and here we are.

The future of Vibeology may very well involve design services outside of the adult industry. Our offices are always overflowing with ideas. Vibeology is another outlet for that creativity.

Bound by SheVibe Graphic2.) How did the collaboration between SheVibe and Tantus come about?

shevibe This is actually a longish story, but the short version is that we set out to make something happen for someone else – when that person turned out to be a total flake, we took the opportunity to capitalize on our design talents with the connections we had made.  Tantus was always our first choice (cuz obviously).  We called them up and asked if we could pay them a visit to show them some designs.  They graciously accepted and we literally flew across the country just for the weekend!  SheVibe and Tantus connected immediately and we settled on some designs to get the ball rolling.

The opportunity to work with a legendary manufacturer has been amazing, but more than that, the friendship we have forged with Metis and Mike is something everyone at SheVibe is thankful for.

3.) What makes the Vibeology products/Bound different from others on the market?

shevibe With Bound in particular it’s texture & detail.  Tantus is the best silicone in the industry, hands down. This means SheVibe’s designs are brought to life in 100% Ultra-Premium Tantus Silicone. You’re getting original designs that create unique sensations in the industry’s highest quality and safest materials.

Additionally, it’s no secret that Tantus is utilizing cutting edge technology including 3D rendering to create these intricate pieces.  I don’t think there is another premium silicone piece on the market with as much detail as the Bound.

Tantus and SheVibe are committed to maintaining quality, creativity and unique design in all future Vibeology pieces.

4.) Bound looks amazingly detailed, what was the process/how long did it take to craft, how did you choose that design?

shevibe We were actually inspired by the Tantus Harness line and created a dildo design to go with each harness (stay tuned).  The Bound was the companion to the Nevada Harness.  The look was so compelling, we knew we loved it and were so happy when Metis did too.  The concept sketch that Alex created was assigned specific dimensions and measurements before going to our super talented 3D modeler.

Once the 3D artist has perfected the design virtually, it goes to the 3D printer which produces a plastic model from which a mold is produced.  From there, it’s a matter of making sure the mold is conducive for extracting a silicone piece without flaws.  From concept inception to design to prototype production, about 100 man hours are expended. It’s quite an intricate and exhaustive process!

5.) What can we look forward to in the future from Vibeology?

shevibe Having access to the team of people that we do, there will be many more creative designs making their debut.  A half dozen products are in the pipeline and dozens more have been conceptualized. You can expect toys that are visually impressive enough to collect and, of course, pleasurably effective.

Big thanks to Sandra (the Queen B over at SheVibe) for taking the time out of her busy schedule, just another reason I love SheVibe so much!
