A Review of Bad Dragon’s Anthro Dragon: Or, the addictive humany dragony one.
The anthropomorphic design makes this great for someone who wants a human-like dildo with a taste of fantasy.
About Bad Dragon
When I first stumbled across Bad Dragon, I had no idea that such creative and fantastical toys existed. Bad Dragon was founded in 2008 and has worked to expand purchasing options for buyers interested in fantasy-themed toys. Buyers have a lot of customization control over the end-product, something that really sets Bad Dragon apart. It was a pleasure to communicate with Bad Dragon and I received friendly professionalism every step of the way.
Shipping and Packaging
My order was placed on January 9th and was shipped out from their Arizona base on January 20th. While I would consider an 11-day stretch long for a pre-made toy, this was shorter than I expected for a custom-made toy. Once it was shipped out, I received the toy very quickly. Take note that I live in Canada, so I was expecting international shipping to take at least a week, but it was delivered just three days later on January 23rd. It was delivered in a simple brown box and the international customs packing slip discreetly listed the contents as “silicone sculpture.” Inside the box, the toy was buried under purple tissue paper and packing peanuts and it was encased by a plastic bag: one side of the bag is clear to peak through and the other side has the company logo.
Bad Dragon’s Elliot the Anthro Dragon is very pleasing to the eye. The curved shaft is propped up by a puffy balls base which means that this toy is safe for anal use but may not be compatible with all harnesses. Horizontal lines encircle the shaft and the balls, giving texture to the otherwise smooth surface. The head is an interesting piece of work; a bulging foreskin wraps around a thick coronal ridge, giving the shaft a definite jump in girth.
When I first held the Elliot Anthro Dragon in my hands, I was amazed that this is what counts as a size Small. With a shaft circumference of 5 inches and an insertable length of 5 inches, the ‘Small’ Anthro Dragon is what I could safely call an average-sized dildo. For me, this size is perfect. It doesn’t make me feel very full, but it’s very comfortable and easily accommodated. For users who want a larger dildo, the sizes for this model go up, with the largest size having a usable length of a whopping 9 inches.
One of the neat things about shopping at Bad Dragon is that it’s an interactive experience. Toys are fully customizable. When shopping for the Elliot Anthro Dragon, not only do you choose size, but you can also choose the firmness, the colour, and whether or not you want a cumtube attachment. Some of their other products include options for a suction cup and dual-firmness .
When customizing my dildo, I wanted it to have the colors of a sunset. I chose the gradient colouring option and picked out two colours (the yellow and the pinkish-red), and hoped for the best. To my delight, it turned out very close to what I imagined. The colours are more vibrant than I expected, and I love the overall effect.
I also chose medium firmness (5). When I first felt my Elliot Anthro Dragon, I thought, “there’s no way this is silicone…” At medium, this is the softest 100% silicone I’ve ever experienced. The slightly-veined shaft can be flattened to about half its girth when squeezed and it can bend in half in all directions. The flattish balls base can be squished to fit into my fist. The silicone is slightly sticky to the touch, so be prepared to rinse pet hair or dust before uses. It’s also completely odorless and tasteless, a hallmark of exceptional silicone.
So, if you want your dildo to look like mine, these are the specific customization options I chose:
- Size: Small
- Medium Firmness
- No cumtube
- Color: Custom fade (color #1: FFFA66; color #2: F53636)
I can easily accommodate the entire shaft up to the balls base. Each time I’ve tried this dildo, I’ve been very warmed up before inserting it. Even so, each time I definitely feel the extra girth around the coronal ridge, so I suggest going slow at first. The first time I used it, I added some extra lubricant, but I realized that this dildo’s texture doesn’t have any drag and it doesn’t use up lubricant as some silicone finishes do. As a result, I can keep my bottles of lube packed away while playing with this toy: things stay smooth and lubricated which is a real treat.
My body loves this dildo. Seriously, this one is really really nice.
So far, it feels comfortable in any position, but I go nuts when the balls are pointing towards my pubic bone. My favourite use for this toy is fast and deep thrusts with the balls facing my clitoris. If you look closely at the shaft’s underside, you can see that there’s a slightly raised portion towards the base. That segment hits my g-spot with every thrust and, despite it being a small bump, it manages to stimulate my g-spot enough to send me into one of those frenzy-thrusting modes. This surprised me: that raised section is barely visible, but it’s apparently thick enough for my discerning g-spot. Coupled with the balls hitting my clitoris on every thrust, I can’t really get enough. Fortunately, this dildo is very light, so rapid thrusts are easy on the wrists.
When in use, I’m impressed by how lifelike the Elliot Anthro Dragon feels. Bad Dragon might be spoiling most silicone toys for me; this doesn’t feel like a hunk of hard plastic. Instead, its soft squishy nature makes it feel cushioned inside of me, allowing me to thrust rapidly without worrying about it bruising me.
I was hoping that my body would like the Elliot Anthro Dragon, but I wasn’t expecting it to become one of my favourite dildos. I love how the design is mostly human with a touch of fantasy. I love that I got to pick out the colours and that the colours turned out so well. I love the cushioned soft silicone. My only wish is that it had a suction cup option which is available for many of the Bad Dragon toys but not for this one.
If you’re looking for a dildo that has traces of fantasy while still retaining familiar human features, seriously consider this one. The Elliot Anthro Dragon is going in my Favourites pile.
