Gryphon is a toy that has changed my life….when it comes to sex toys! Which seems silly to say, but it has helped me take some of my larger toys that have just been sitting around simply because they were way too big for me. Gryphon caught my eye as a good stretching toy. So, when I sent Bad Dragon my review ‘wishlist’, I figured I would add him on there. The tapered head makes it easy to insert and the knot gradually increases. The knot gives you a nice full feeling which I love! The first few times I used the Gryphon, I couldn’t quite knot him all the way. The knot diameter was a bit bigger then the largest I had ever taken. The 3rd or 4th time using it, I had on my favorite kind of porn, used several warm up toys and plenty of lube and finally managed to almost completely knot him! I don’t think I’ll ever be able to fully knot him since it would require taking the entire length of the toy and that is a bit longer then I can take. I got a suction cup on my toy which makes it easy to ride, but thrusting works for this toy as well. The base makes it safe for anal play and could possibly be harness compatible! If you plan to share this toy between holes or partners use a condom (or boil him!)
All Bad Dragon toys are made out of 100% silicone! Like most silicone toys, they do collect pet hair/lint. Be sure to always wipe them down before use just to be safe! There is a bit of texture pretty much all over this toy, nothing too overwhelming though! When ordering from Bad Dragon you get to choose your firmness. They have soft, medium and hard firmnesses. I always get their hard firmness, just because I’m a big fan of harder silicone! They do sell firmness samples for $10 if you want to be able to feel them yourself to be sure you’re ordering the right one!
Gryphon is a mythical creature, half lion and half eagle. The shaft on this toy is short, this toy is all about the knot. The head has bump like detailing all over it, then you move down the shaft and you have some ribbed like detailing until you get to the knot and then the knot has textured detailing all over it. The texture is going to be felt more or less depending on which firmness you choose. My Gryphon is in the large size, firm firmness, with a cum tube and suction cup and the color is a custom fade of purple and green with a metallicy finish. The color on my toy is so incredibly pretty! For at least a year now I’ve been wanting a Bad Dragon toy in this color combo. While browsing on Instagram one day, I came across a photo of the CEO of Lime Crime and as soon as I saw her hair, I knew I needed it on a dildo! It’s a fade from a beautiful purple to a bright lime green. In the photos, the purple looks darker then it really is. You can see the true color on my Instagram account!
Cum Tube feature:
I’ve always wanted to try a cum tube on a regular sized Bad Dragon toy. I had used one with a lil squirt, but that toy was just too small for me to really get a feel for the cum tube! So, I had the opportunity to get a cum tube on my Gryphon and I took it. I have a love hate relationship with the cum tube feature. The pros are if you’re wanting to experience the feeling of being came in or a creme pie, it’s great for that. It also helps lubricate to be able to take larger toys. The cons, it leaves a mess that you have to clean up, if you use Bad Dragon’s cum lube, well good luck with that, and it can get annoying to clean.
To use the cum tube, you take the syringe that they provide for you, and suck up the lube of your choice. The syringe can hold up to 2 OZ of liquid. Once you have your desired amount of lube in it, you take the end of the tube and stick it on the end of the syringe. Then you just push the syringe handle down to get the lube to come out. It’s very easy to use and figure out!
To clean the cum tube, I like to get a cup full of water, draw up the water in the syringe and then push it through. That will get out all of the left over lube and any body fluids that got in the hole in the tip of the toy. Once I’ve done that twice, I just pull the syringe full of air and push that through a few times to get all of the liquid out. I normally let my toy lay out on a towel for a few hours before putting it away, just so that if there’s any liquid in there, it’ll drip out. Cleaning your cum tube thoroughly after each use will help extend the life and performance of it.
When ordering from Bad Dragon, you can purchase a ready made toy in the adoption section or you can completely customize your toy! When ordering a custom toy, first you choose what size you would like. Gryphon comes in small($65), medium($100), large($120) and extra large($165)! Next you get to choose which firmness you would like. They have soft, medium, firm, medium shaft/firm base(+$15) and soft shaft/firm base(+$15). Then you get to choose if you want the cum tube feature(+$20) or not and if you want a suction cup(+10) added to the base. Lastly you get to choose your color! They have standard colors you can pick from, fades, marbles, splits, toy exclusive colors. If you ever have an idea and want to see if it’s possible, you can send them an email and ask! My customer service experience with them has been very good! If you were to order my exact toy it would cost you around $180!
Cleaning the actual toy is very easy to do! You can use a mild soap and water, baby wipes, a toy cleaner, a 10% bleach solution or boil it for 3 to 5 minutes! It’s the cum tube that is going to be the most annoying to clean. Just be sure to get as much liquid out of the tube as you can before storing your toy. All Bad Dragon toys come in a plastic bag, which makes for great storage. That way it’ll reduce any hair/lint pick up. As always, only use water based lubricant with your silicone toys!
The shipping time for your toy is really going to depend on if your toy is a ready made or if it’s a custom order. My first Bad Dragon order was a custom order for 2 toys. I placed it on August 21st and received them on October 2nd. I placed one of my ready made orders on November 29th and I received it on December 6th. Once the toy is shipped, it’ll get to you pretty quick. The shipping is also very discreet from Bad Dragon, so no need to worry that someone will be able to tell where it’s from. Inside the box you’ll find packing peanuts, tissue paper and whatever you ordered! If your toy is a custom order it will come in their newest bag, clear on one side and black with their logo on the other. If it’s a ready made toy, it’ll come in a completely clear bag. Be sure to look over the toy as much as you can before opening it. Once you open the bag, it’s not possible to return it.
