Xar Bad Dragon
Xar the Karabos
You asked for it, and here it is! The Karabos - a thick, girthy toy with a rounded tip, filled with bug-like textures - it is one of the Bad Dragon community designs!
Xar, a muscular alien with a thick, rounded shaft. Tantalizing bumps, smooth curves and gentle ridges. He has an impressive knot and his base looks like it could be a hoof with nubs that excite! He can be used anally as well as vaginally. I have only used him vaginally.
The Xar is filling and with the pronounced tip, I enjoy g- spot stimulation. I do have to use a fair amount of lube and be warmed up to use the entire girth of the Xar. He does please. With the split firmness I am able to bend the lower shaft area so that I can rub the nubs of the base on my clitoral area as well as my perineum. I really pushed my limits with the medium size but I am glad that I did. His knot is an oval shape and it is possible for me to insert him and use him like he should be used. I had to get out the towels!
All of the Bad Dragons are made from premium silicone that is non porous, hypoallergenic, latex and phthalates free. The silicone has no smells or tastes to it. The silicone does collect lint and hair easily. The bad dragon toys are safe to be shared between partners as long as they are cleaned properly between uses.
The Xar that I received for review is a Medium with a split firmness. This is my first toy with the split firmness and it does make a difference, a good one. The toy stands up nicely and is much easier to use while I still have the softer shaft that makes using the entire dildo much easier.
The bad dragons can come in a silicone that ranges from really soft to hard. You can also order the bad dragons in a spit firmness like my Xar. The split means that the shaft portion is softer and the base is firmer. This split also allows the toy to stand up. They range from a female soft to soft 3, medium 5 and hard 9. You can order a sample pack of discs that come in different densities to help you to judge what your preferences may be. A disc is included with each order also.
The Medium split density in my Xar is squishy and you can squeeze him and he is firm enough to stand up. When you press your thumb into the silicone there is actually some give to him. The medium density makes the knot much easier to handle.
The colors at bad dragon are awesome, literally you can get your Xar or any toy in almost any color imaginable. Yes, this includes florescent colors!! You can order it in a marbled design or a toy exclusive coloring. My Xar is a red with gold undertones and a black base. You can customize your Xar with 4 toy exclusive colors, 21 standard, and 5 custom colors as well as making your own combination. You can see all your options here
My Xar is a Medium size. He has a total length of 8 inches with 6 1/2 inches that are insert-able His tip has a diameter of 2 inches and his shaft has a diameter of 1 3/4 inches. He has a large widened knot that measures 2 1/2 inches in diameter at it's greatest girth. His base is 6 1/4 inches long and 3 1/4 inches wide. (My measurements are approximates).
The Xar line comes in small, medium, large and extra large. You can view the size chart here.
The Bad Dragon silicone toys should be used with water based lubes as the silicone can hurt the finish of the toys. When I mentioned the discs that you receive with your order and the sample set, those discs serve another purpose. You can place your lube on to the discs and let it sit to see if your lube will interact with the silicone. Bad dragon an awesome idea by creating those.
You can clean your bad dragon in a number of ways, you can throw it in the dishwasher, boil it for 10 minutes. You can wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution. You can use your antibacterial soaps and water, toy sprays or wipes.
Storage can be an issue with the bad dragons as some of them are quite large and they are not discreet. I purchased photo storage boxes and I keep them inside of the bag that they come in. Some will fit into large baggies. If discretion is not an issue for you you can keep them out as a great conversation piece.
Bad Dragon has discreet shipping, every package comes in a plain brown box with a person's name on the return label. The toy comes in a clear plastic sealed bag. You get the sample discs with each order. The Bad Dragons are made in the USA.

Thanks so much Bad Dragon. They also have the best customer service and promptly respond to your messages. I love all of my Bad Dragon toys, some better than others and I would suggest for everyone to go on over and custom design your toy. I don't think you will be disappointed. I would suggest to order the medium and larger sized toys in a split density or a firmer density to help them to stand up.
