Welcome to the blog of Sir Dave where you can find news, appointment availability, new purchases, new ideas and just my thoughts on life work and the world. Oh and maybe the odd photo or collection of photo's I like.
Quite a while ago I was in the Prowler Soho store in London and bought a good sized bright red dildo, with the intention of one day completing the set if I liked it.
I loved it and wanted to get the rest but … they stopped selling them! Now I must make a shout out to the ProwlerRED team on twitter when I asked if they have them instore and not online replied saying they didn’t sell them any longer.
But did tell me the name of the company that make them instead of trying to persuade me to buy one of their others.
And so I introduce you to the Stretch range of dildo’s and ass toys. But before I talk about them it is important to realise that not all sex toys are made equal. In fact they can be made from lots of things – wood and glass for example, and then the two most common are latex and vinyl (or plastic type products).
In recent years you will have seen talk about Silicone toys coming more popular. SquarePeg I believe launched the first range of silicone toys back in 2006! OxBalls I also remember as one of the early companies to offer silicone toys … but I don’t know when they started.
In recent years other names for big toys like Mr Hanky’s have come along and other established brands such as Crackstuffers have introduced silicone toys.
Simply put – silicone is safer. It’s non-porous – so it won’t absorb chemicals that it comes into contact with. Everything stays on the surface which means you can wash and sanitise them easily. And that safety is one of the most important benefits!
Other common materials like Latex have tiny pores that can trap bacteria, viruses and STD’s. Which is really an issue when playing with bigger toys that you can’t fit a condom or other barrier over. You can use water or oil based lubes with silicone toys, latex toys can of course be broken down by oil based products.
And they are odourless and tasteless. Actually, odour is a good topic here too as a quick aside.
Have you ever had a toy that has quite a strong plasticy smell? Or do any of your toys ‘sweat’ or get oily or greasy all by themselves? If so I would suggest you go and grab that toy and throw it out!
They aren’t some fancy self-lubricating toys … it’s actually the chemical degradation. And there is a strong possibility that the chemicals causing the smell or sweat are phthalates that are used to soften plastics.
Those chemicals are dangerous! They can cause irritation, rashes, blisters or a whole lot worse, just google them! So please check what your toys are made from and take appropriate steps – I’ve thrown out a load of my own collection already.
Some people say that Silicone Lubes can damage silicone toys, i’ve seen no evidence of this. But SquarePeg do point out on their website dissolving can occur when they come into contact with vinyl toys. Which is where the initial rumour may have started.
Ok, so moving back to toys
Whatever your experience, I have something to fit everyone, and will of course be adding more. The red dildos are part of the “Stretch” range, there are seven in the main collection and here you can see sizes 1 through 6.
Let’s start with Riker … or for non star trek nerds Number 1. This is about 15cm long with a width of 4cm. It’s a really nice size to work up to when starting out! A good toy to us to get used to an average cock fucking you.
They are all circumcised or foreskin pulled back depending on how you want to think about it.
This gives a nice head with a little bump to ride on the way in or further inside. Then the body is veiny for some texture and then some balls to make sure you can work it balls deep!
And they all have a suction base, and it really holds well! Particularly useful if you want to ride at home alone. If you have a smooth or tiled wall or floor stick it down and fuck yourself silly!
Silicone also has a nice feel about it, the temperature too. If you use a metal or glass toy for example it will feel cold when you first use it.
Two tips when shopping for toys. If you want to compare how a toys temperature will feel when inside just place them on the inside of your arm.
You’ll get the initial feel and then how long it will take to warm up to body temperature. And if looking at a vibrator in a store use the tip if your nose to feel how powerful it is.
So I said I have Stretch 1 through 6, this is the 6 and clearly for experienced and practiced holes. It’s 31cm in length and 7cm wide! As you can see more than just a handful!
In the coming months for you greedy boys and fist pigs I will be getting the Stretch 7, 5X and 5 Double X! The 5 Double X has a circumference of 28cm and is 9 cm across!!
Silicone toys can be made in a variety of firmness, if you look at toys from companies like Weredog for example you can choose the soft medium or firm toys. The Stretch range I would put as firm, they are very firm but you can squeeze them and they flex – they aren’t solid!
In the Stretch range there are some other options too, such as the Stretch Hole. It is a hollow plug – shaped with a taper for easy insertion, some bulges and base to keep it firmly held in pace and to keep your hole open.
Again like the stretch dildos made from premium silicone! The hole A is 11cm in length with a max width of 5cm The largest available is 16cm long and 8cm wide for a great stretch and gape! If you are familiar with the OxBalls pig hole these are firmer, the pig holes can collapse when using them.
And finally there is one question everyone has about toys … price. The entire range I think is excellent value for money. The Stretch 1 is just £13.85 and the Stretch 6 is £31.20 with the most expensive being the 5 Double X at £46.20!
So if you are interested in any of the Stretch toys and range you can find them on their website skyhi.me.uk. You can also find the amazing K-Lube range of lubes! It is nice to see them back on the market, and they offer free postage on orders over £35!
I was recently asked if I could recommend some arse play / prostate stimulators. And in the words of the Sally …. yes, yes, yees, yes, YESSSS! And so here are my recommendations for really getting your ass excited and your cock ready for some mind blowing orgasms!
These are presented in price order, getting more expensive as they go on, but all offer something of a buzz! And don’t forget the lube…
Rocks Off Raspberry (19.99)
Not sold directly as a “prostate stimulator / massager” this little bundle of joy deserves its place here. Small, perfectly formed and with their own RO-80mm Bullet Vibrator this definitely packs a punch! The vibrator can be removed easily for super easy clean up.
If you want to feel a little something inside your hole that is a bit more exciting then just a butt plug this is a good place to start. But if you are experienced in some anal play, maybe skip down a few places.
Rocks Off Rock Quest (£24.99)
Now we get serious … the perfect place for prostate beginners to start. This affordable bundle of joy is small, discrete and perfectly sized. The silicone ring on the outside is comforting to know about … particularly if you get a bit greedy and start to suck it up as you ride it!
The Quest has 10 speed sensations / speed settings that you can go through using the button the base to find the one that really works for you. And this has a really nice bonus … 100% waterproof! This will really help make bathtime one to remember!!
The festive season is well and truly upon us now! But what to buy that boy / Sir / pup / pervert in your life? Here are some of my kinky Christmas present suggestions!
Short Rubber Covered Cane (£6.99)
Canes, oh the fun you can have with a simple cane and masochist! These short canes are great for using across the body, used gently a little reminder of who’s in charge or more forcefully for disciplining!
The small size allows for easy control, and packing away in an overnight bag for trips away or even a local BDSM play club.
And at just £7.00 the perfect stocking filler!
Spunk Hybrid Lube (£12.99)
Quite frankly lube makes for better sex! And good lube makes for amazing sex. Spunk lube is one of my favourite lubes on the market at the moment for fucking and play (I prefer powder lubes for Fisting and big toy ass play).
The name comes from the fact it looks like spunk, not really a selling point for me … the best bit is how well it works! It is a silicone hybrid lube so condom and rubber gear safe but also washes off super easily. And if it starts to dry a little when playing just add some water / spit / piss to get it all slippery again!
Tasteless, hypo-allergenic and all those other things you read about that sound good. But ultimately this does a great job of keeping your cock sliding in the bottoms hole! What more could you ask for in a lube.

List your kinks.
The list is very long! But an outline of primary interests would be (alphabetically so they can’t be assumed to be in any preference order:
Ass play – Fucking is quite low on my interest list, doesn’t do much for me. But I love to play with a willing hole, from introducing it to the joys of ass play with just a finger or small dildo and vibrator through to huge toys, stretching and fisting. Whilst I don’t particularly enjoy fucking I do enjoy using a strap on, partly because I can choose a cock to fit the hole perfectly or just to stretch it a little as needed.
Bondage – Restriction, lack of movement, control, vulnerability. There are so many ways to explore bondage too – just a pair of handcuffs / leather cuffs, through to straight jackets, sleep sacks, bondage chairs or even suspension.
Boots – Love boots, my favourite makes are Wesco and Grinders, but also love things like rigger boots cat style boots, biker (have a pair of RST race boots).
CBT – the most precious and sensitive part of a man, and somewhere you can have so much fun playing with them! It’s quite amazing how many love having their balls abused.
Flogging – lots of people thing flogging is all about pain and marking. There is so much more to it! I have a delicious collection of floggers in a variety of hides all giving different experiences and there is so much you can do without the worry of marking the skin, no more than some redness from the warmth of the play that dissipates very quickly. I love flogging as you can go on a real journey from light gentle stroking touch to very heavy intense impact play and lots of places inbetween.
Leather – My biggest fetish, love the look, feel, smell, taste of leather.
