DELIVERY & PACKAGING
I ordered by Elden dildo from Bad Dragon in the US and I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it arrived by courier considering this is a bespoke toy made to my requirements. It was shipped to me by Fed Ex and it cost me $115 or £77.31 including delivery. I had to pay just over £15 in customs fees when it arrived so bear that in mind when you place an order from the US.
My dildo arrived very quickly when you consider that it was made to order and the packaging was superb. The toy sealed in a branded plastic bag in a box containing lots of extra packaging so it wouldn’t shift around in transit and the outer postal box was completely plain, so no one could know what the contents were.
The plastic bag is resealable and is ideal for keeping the dildo safe and sound once cleaned as these types of toy tend to become dust and fluff magnets if you are not careful.
All Bad Dragon toys are made out of 100% body safe Platinum-cure Silicone meaning that they are great to use, easy to clean and don’t harbour potentially dangerous bacteria.
Their toys are handmade and available in a range of colours and material firmness’s. You even have the option of selecting a suction cup base and even a Cum Tube so that you can have an ejaculating toy.
I opted for the medium size and firmness as looking at the toys stats this is the perfect size for me, its dimensions are:
Overall length 7.25” (18.4cm), with an insertable length of 6.25” (15.9cm). Its tip is 1.5” (3.8cm) wide with the shaft being slightly thinner, this gives you a very pleasant feeling as it slips into you.
The knot which is just above the base of the toy is 2.5” wide and this feels amazing as you squeeze it inside, it stretches me just enough to make me feel wonderfully full.
Bad Dragon toys come in a range of silicone firmness’s and I opted for the standard medium, in hindsight I wish I had opted for the firm base/medium shaft choice as I feel the base needs to be a bit firmer especially if you plan on using your dildo on a fucking machine. Although saying that even with the medium firmness base it still feels amazing in use when attached to a fucking machine like the F-machine Pro.
I had the option of adding a suction cup base or a cum-tube when I placed the order but I went with the basic dildo. My next toy will definitely feature a cum tube for some creampie play.
The Elden is a very nicely textured toy featuring many ripples, bumps and ridges and as with all Bad Dragon dildos it is unique, available in a number of sizes and matches the character of the fantasy creature it portrays.
The shaft features a nicely rippling texture that gradually gets wider as you work yourself down to the knot. The knot itself is very nicely detailed and nice and wide, once past your vaginal (or anal) opening it allows your muscles to pull the toy into you deeply. It feels amazing sliding in and out, and with the spunk lube, the knot pushes in smoothly stretching you open, but not too far, making it a really great toy. If you don’t always want the large toy play, you can just use the shaft of the dildo without the knot but it is ready for when you want to enjoy that extra full feeling.
The base is also highly textured and this allows for some very pleasant clitoral stimulation once inserted as the toy tries to pull itself even deeper into you applying pressure to your clit.
I have no doubt that this toy could be very pleasurable when used anally as the shaft is nicely textured and relatively soft, you would have to be a seasoned anal toy user to take the knot though and this reviewer can't comment on that as I definitely can't.
FUCKING MACHINE FRIENDLINESS
As Bad Dragon dildos don’t use the Vac-u-lock system I had to look around for an adaptor to be able to use it on my fucking machine.
The guys over at fmachinefun.co.uk have a few adaptors and the 3”x3” flat base adaptor was perfect for the job. It is recommended that you use medical cohesive bandages to hold the dildo onto the adaptor plate and this is a neat solution to the dildo mounting problem. It also means that most of my old dildos can now be used with my fucking machine.
The added bonus is that I don’t need to drill holes into my favourite toys to accept a Vac-u-lock adaptor, this will enable me to enjoy some of my old favourites in a whole new way.
To attach the dildo to the adaptor plate you simply wrap the bandage tightly around the metal base and the base of the dildo. Cohesive bandages stick to themselves and so it forms a solid layer of material that holds the dildo tightly to the adaptor.
The cohesive bandage didn’t leave any sticky residue behind when removed so I don’t have to worry about ruining any of my favourite toys. It really is a simple solution to the dildo mounting problem that works brilliantly.
USE BY HAND
I love this dildo and its great for hand play as well as on the end of a fucking machine. The knot is an amazing feeling and once fully inserted you can start pulling it out of you stretching you open once again and if you let go before the knot leaves you the toy shoots back into you as your muscles close up making you absorb the knot again. Anyone who hasn’t tried a toy with a knot doesn’t know what they are missing. I found the knot was just the right size and firmness, it was large enough to stretch me that little bit more, but not so much that it was uncomfortable to use, it certainly made using this toy that much more enjoyable for me.
USE ON A FUCKING MACHINE
As with most toys on the fucking machine it’s the setting up that takes the time. You need to set the angle and height of the machine depending on what position you are going to be in. I usually use mine in the missionary position or the doggy position and both are great with this toy.
The other setting that you need to set is the depth of thrust, this is easy to adjust on the F-machine and I like it in two settings with the Elden dildo. The first is a short thrust length and this allows me to use the toys knot in a rather unique manner, you can insert it fully and then have it stretch you wide open as its drawn out of you before being rammed back in again. On fast speed settings I can come really quickly like this – just make sure that you use lots of lube.
The second setting I like is a long thrust setting and I like to slowly fuck myself like this, revelling in the feeling of the dildo sliding into me slowly gradually opening me up before I take the knot and then feeling the opposite on the return stroke. I can enjoy this for a long time and then just speed things up a bit when I want to come.
I love my Elden dildo and will definitely be getting some more toys from Bad Dragon in the future.
This is a really amazing toy. If you don’t want to use the standard shape and feel toys all the time then I highly recommend getting a Bad Dragon toy. They really are great for fantasy play, it feels amazing in use, with the texture adding that extra touch and the knot finishes this toy off nicely.
Yes it does cost a little more than a standard type toy, but this is no standard toy, and my opinion is that it is well worth the money.
