Toy Review: The Bad Dragon Flint Steampunk Dildo

Woah, woah, woah!

What is this studded stud?

Those rigid plates.

Those prominent balls.

And the studs. Oh myyyy.

It can only be Bad Dragon’s Flint – the studded steampunk dildo based on everyone’s favorite fantasy reptilian.

Be still my geeky heart.

The Bad Dragon Flint Steampunk Dildo

The Bad Dragon Flint Steampunk Dildo is a bit of a milestone toy for the Bad Dragon company.

It was the first ever Staff Pick from the Bad Dragon Labs project, which is an event in which Bad Dragon enthusiasts can actually design and propose their own toy designs to add to the Bad Dragon range. This toy was made collaboratively with Turbine, and was envisioned as a anthropomorphic, steampunk dragon.

Rawr.

The fantasy element might be a bit of a deterrent for some individuals and it’s fair to say that Bad Dragon is targeting a rather niche demographic (of which I am an avid member). But, if you don’t want to think of this toy as being a fantasy item then that’s the great thing about dildos – you don’t have to.

Whether or not you see this toy as the appendage of a rock hard reptilian ready to impress you with his mechanical knowledge and maker-bestowed asset or not the reality is this: The Bad Dragon Flint is an chunky piece of silicone, shaped in a phallic, semi-realistic manner, with enough texture to allow for a very tactile sensation, and a G/P-Spotting curve that will draw you in even with a passing glance.

Look at this toy as it is – a dildo – and it’s just as viable as any other sex toy…perhaps even more so.

Because, here’s the great thing about all Bad Dragon toys: They can be almost completely customized. The Bad Dragon Flint comes in multiple sizes, firmnesses, and colors. If you have a particular gradient in mind you can even select it on a color scale and Bad Dragon will do their best to cater to your whims.

This isn’t a toy that you own. It’s a toy that you own. It is 100% custom made and 100% you. That is, when it comes to the particulars. The design itself is consistent and is one to be admired.

If you’re a fan of texture then the Bad Dragon Flint is made for you.

This toy has so much going on that it’s rather hard to encapsulate it all.

Firstly, you have the base of the design, which (in and of itself) is very well considered.

Firm balls are held in a scrotum that has creases and folds which are sculpted with consideration to gravity and how they might naturally fall on a person’s body.

I appreciate this a lot.

This leads to a shaft which is short and stout but still packs in variation to girth and the placement of its bulges. A curve is present in the design on the Flint but so, too, and complimentary bulges that add to the pressure of the curve, meaning that at peak points of contact you with feel more girth as well as its natural angling.

All of this reaches its pinnacle with a head that is partially covered by the toy’s foreskin (thank you so much, Bad Dragon, for this) which has its own creases and folds and helps to add a sense of intuitive texture to this toy right from the first point of penetration. The coronal ridge of this toy also cannot be overlooked and adds its own element of variation to the surface of the shaft.

Then, of course, you have the texture.

Texture-lovers look no further.

The studs of this toy are one of its main appeals and they run from near the tip of the foreskin all the way around the edge of the coronal ridge before moving to the top of the dildo and then down.

Wisely, Bad Dragon have chosen to include minimal additional texture at these points, as studs and bumps can so easily be overpowered during use with other sensations. I’m glad to see that Bad Dragon (and Turbine) have considered this because it means that this design is experiential-based. This is a product optimized for enjoyment and every aspect of the end product reflect this.

Then we move down to most of the shaft which has prominent, defined plates and, oh boy, you can feel every. single. one.

The plates of this toy are augmented by its girthy design, which feels you up and makes it so that you really do notice when each ridge slides in, because it adds more size and sensation. In this way the Flint is probably the closest I’ve had to a ben wa bead sensation from an actual dildo (outside of the ones that are just beads running down a shaft).

That foreskin and coronal ridge play their part too.

Again, the angle of this toy also helps emphasize how these plates feel, because it really allows that lower part of each plat to give the full force that you would hope.

The balls of this toy are good for gripping and make this toy anal and harness friendly.

And, of course, this toy is made from platinum grade, custom poured silicone, making it non-porous, phthalate-free, and completely body-safe. You can boil this toy or chuck it in a dishwasher and you’ll have a cleaner end product for it. Alternatively you can use a toy cleaner or antibacterial soap and water and, as long as you really scrub around those studs and ridges, you’ll still be left with a product that’s good to go.

Bad Dragon silicone is very draggy (almost tacky when unlubricated) but it slicks up very well and, as you’d expect, the drag really comes in to play when you’re riding those ridges and having that curve (and the delectable texture of the head foreskin) rub against your pleasure point of choice.

As you can probably tell, I adore using this toy. Externally I rub it up and down my vulva, allowing it to part my labia, locate my clitoris and casually massage it with plated prowess.

Internally, I selected a mini and I still feel wholly stuffed and sensationally satisfied when I shove this toy into me. And, yes, I do mean shove, because a chunky toy like the Flint is one that I like to cram into myself and fully experience the impact of its texture and expanding nature. I sting in a good way when I use the Flint and, at times, its winning combination has got my muscles clenching approvingly from the moment I slide it in.

Orgasms with the Flint are as awe inducing as the steampunk movement itself, and just as bombastic.

Buuut, as with anything that harkens back to ye olde days, the Flint isn’t all good all the time.

The biggest flaw with the Flint is that, as with any highly textured toy, it’s a nightmare to clean.

Okay, I exaggerate, but you do have to be thorough.

Pay particular attention to those studs, because gunk will formulate around them and your body does not need to come in to contact with the dried residue of your last encounter, so clean well to play safe.

It’s also a lint and dust magnet, as is any Bad Dragon toy: That silicone just wants to love everything around it.

The texture and girth variation may also be too much for some, but that is personal preference and will vary depending on which firmness and size you select.

If you’ve never had a Bad Dragon toy before then you may want to buy a silicone sampler pack to avoid disappointment confirming the texture, or perhaps buy a pre-made one first before splashing out for a custom. After all, there are few things sadder than spending a fortune on a toy, waiting patiently for it to be made, only to have it arrive and find out that you got it wrong and have only yourself to blame.

Outside of this I really can’t say much against the Flint, it’s a winning design for a reason, quite literally, as it were.

Final Thoughts

By now you can probably tell what my overall feeling about the Bad Dragon Flint are, but just in case you decided to skim down to the summary I’ll throw you a bone when it comes to the lady boner that this toy induces in me.

The Bad Dragon Flint is a wonderful combination of girth, curvature, and texture.

Due to Bad Dragon’s custom system, you can have your own hand in just how firm (and thus how intense) the Flint is, but I feel rather confident that, at any firmness, this toy is going to offer up a good time.

I highly recommend the Flint, especially if hitting the G/P-Spot and feeling full is your thing.

This Bad Dragon toy is one fantastic phallus and I can’t get enough of it.
