I don’t often find it necessary to review every new toy that comes through the dungeon, I either love what I bought or I return it and bitch about it on Twitter. Fortunately for me, every recent new arrival has been a keeper, but a couple items in particular deserve a little commentary.
Let’s start with the vac bed.
Words just can’t convey the intensity of what it’s really like to be tucked away inside, but I’ll give it a shot by saying off the bat – it’s not for the faint of heart. Some models come like this, with the face out of the bed.
See…nice and cozy!
My model, for reference, is designed for FULL enclosure and looks like this.
Mine does have a ‘cock hole’, this photo doesn’t display that.
Now, on the surface this doesn’t look like a big deal. Sure, it absolutely implies a deeper sense of helplessness for the enclosed victim, but let me tell you….once your zipped inside, the blackness of the latex cuts you off from the outside world and time seems to stand still. You become SO acutely aware of how little control you truly have at this point and all of this is before the suction begins.
With your face pressed against the air hole, your eyes are no longer able to steal away glimpses of light. That hole over your mouth becomes your survival. Of course, I’m leaving out the obvious: me standing over you with full control of the vacuum to ensure your safety: even with this, your mind already begins to play tricks on you. That hole becomes the most important thing in the world.
I turn the suction on and slowly, forcefully, the air is removed from the bed. The foreboding sense of the world closing in around you is VERY real and very very potent, but it all happens in a flash. There’s a second part of the sensory mind fuck here…. the one that keeps items like this so popular and highly sought after. The pure sensory deprivation.
Of course, by this point your thoughts quite as you acclimate to your surroundings. It forces you to accept your predicament because, very frankly, there’s nothing else you can do about it. You must either submit….or panic. Most find themselves blissfully falling into their head space, enjoying the feel of the heavy rubber caressing and hugging every inch of skin, closing out absolutely everything except the all encompassing anticipation. It can either be terrifying or glorious; and this is before I do anything to you while you’re in there.
I give this product a standing ovation.
Now, onto the PES device…
I’ve always wondered why most retailers simply don’t carry PES items in their e-stim collections. I know it’s a bit pricey but this is clearly a quality item that’s built to last…and t’s hardly the most expensive electro toy on the market. Why then, was it so illusive?
I’m fairly certain now that I have my answer, and it’s a bit of a mixed bag. PES has some remarkable attachments for their power boxes and I selected 4 to get myself going on the right foot and found them all to be twisted and amusing in their diabolical design. I don’t think anyone would argue that as far as accessories go, PES might be the most creative manufacturer out there. By contrast the box is entirely underwhelming.
It puts out adequate power, but as you might expect, I demand more than just ‘adequate’. I also don’t find there to be sufficient variations in the electrical patterns! I realize I’m spoiled by superior products, but I frankly assumed perfection, judging solely on how much thought and care they put into the attachments. So why the scathing comments? It has one basic sensation that I can deepen, speed up, slow down or intensify. That’s it. Even the drastically less expensive Zeus boxes, that you can find just about anywhere, come with more variety in the pulse patterns.
I hate to admit it, but I was disappointed. Well, I should say I was disappointed right up until I realized I could use the PES attachments with my Erostek power box!!!!! Now there’s an interesting revelation. I can use the best electrical accessories on the planet with the most powerful and sophisticated box on the market. Oh yessss…..
(Basil did you hear that?)
Of course, I’ll still use the PES box as a great portable device. It absolutely has a place in my dungeon, just not as prominently as anticipated.
