Review: Cocksheath by Bad Dragon
Ooo, what’s that?
Okay, so…you know there’s a kick ass company that produces various fantastical silicone cocks, right? If you haven’t heard of these guys, you must live under a rock, or something. Since the first time I heard of them, way back in 2009, they have literally exploded all over the internet. And that, right there, is my first one ever. Mostly because I’m always broke, and when they started their review program I didn’t have the time to devote to reviewing such magnificently designed toys.
You can bet your pretty ass that they were the first company I contacted when my schedule opened up. I mean, of course they were. JUST LOOK AT THESE PENISES! And vaginas. BUT OMG THE PENISES!
What’d it come in?
Really pretty purple tissue paper and a brown cardboard box. Open in the privacy of your bedroom, and you’ve got not a thing to worry about.
How’s it made?
This sex toy is made of probably my most favorite density of silicone yet.
I used to be a jelly girl. Like, fer realz. I love, Love, LOVE squishy toys. Especially if they’ve got a bit of drag. In fact, my love for these kinds of toys runs so deep that, for a long time, I was completely turned off by the idea of anything even remotely firmer than jelly, despite the risks.
Then I tried silicone. And while most silicone isn’t as squishy as jelly, the vast majority is just squishy enough to make my picky pussy happy.
Very similar to the outer layer of Tantus’s dual density silicone, the Cocksheath is super soft and squishy with lots of drag. And like pretty much all the silicone I own, it’s a cat hair magnet. That’s pretty much the only downside, though, because while thin silicone may be prone to tearing if the user isn’t careful, I haven’t been able to tear the Cocksheath. And believe me, I put it through its paces.
This toy’s about 5 1/2 inches long, and is fashioned sort of like a dog-penis-shaped stroker with a loop on the end that goes around the balls. Inside and out, there are ripples along the surface for his and her (or his and his, as the case may be) pleasure. There’s a knot at about the center that protrudes from the bottom and the sides, and a bump on the top that I can only assume is for g-spot stimulation. And if your cock’s long enough, it’s going to poke out the end, which has got to be my favorite part.
Fellas who already have quite a bit of girth, never fear! This cock sleeve will fit you, too.
What’s it for?
So there’s the obvious use of turning a penis or sex toy into something resembling an animal’s penis, which is great for furries or people into animal roleplay. This toy also increases the girth of a penis or dildo. And that loop at the bottom can serve as a cock ring which restricts blood flow, increasing stamina.
Ours also turns M’s penis into a light saber. It’s glow-in-the-dark.
But you know what I was wondering? I wonder if you could use this as a sort of male chastity device. You know the ones that keep the penis from becoming fully erect by holding it curved? I figure you could do this by flipping the loop up over the tip while the penis is inside. Obviously, I didn’t get a chance to try it, because M’s not into CBT. But if one of you does, tell me how it goes! And, ya know…take pics!
How is it?

I feel like I need to put a disclaimer in here, so I’m gonna start there. We probably should have known M wasn’t going to like this toy. The fact is, my guy’s not into masturbation, and he’s only used a handful of male sex toys (once each), so he’s just way too sensitive for something like this. This means he reaches the point of blast off in seconds, even with the c-ring (which isn’t really that tight of a fit), with pretty much all toys like this. Even with lube, there’s way too much friction involved that he doesn’t experience in my pussy.
We were hoping that the fact that his head pokes out the end would minimize that, to some extent, since the head is usually the most sensitive part of a penis, but his shaft, unlike most men, is just as sensitive as the head. Like most men, anything that shortens the length of time he’s able to avoid cumming is a major blow to his ego.
But, I mean, look at it! It’s so awesome! It’s, like, the most perfect cock sleeve I think I’ve ever seen.
Why? Well, because I don’t care about any extra girth. M’s cock fills me up just fine. And I’m really big on bareback sex in a monogamous relationship. Especially since I haven’t had to worry about getting pregnant for 12 years (my tubes are tied). So it’s gotta be a pretty special toy for me to even consider having a barrier between his cock (which is, hands down and honest to goodness, my favorite sex toy) and my vaginal walls.
Plus, a lot of cock sleeves just slide around in use. Hell, a lot of everything just slides around in use. I’ve had a couple pregnancy scares because the condom slid off while in use. So when we saw the cock ring on the end (or ball ring, as the case may be), we were like, “Whoa, maybe it’ll stay put!”
AND THEN! We noticed that Bad Dragon didn’t only concentrate on texture for the guy, or girl. There’s texture inside AND out, which means the cock sleeve isn’t merely a girth addition. It’s also a g-spot stimulator, and a stroker rolled into one.
See what I mean? NEAT! So we decided to go ahead and review it, anyway. And he hated it. He said that though it lessened the feeling of my pussy, it over-sensitized his penis. And he’s just not all that fond of things around his balls.
As for me, I could take it or leave it. I mean, as a sex toy it’s great. It’s fully functional, brilliantly designed, looks really cool, and feels really nice. Used over a toy like the Tantus Buzz (pictured above), which has no texture to speak of aside from the natural drag provided by silicone, it feels great, though it would probably work better on something with balls. Believe it or not, I don’t own a single toy with balls. Is that weird?
Plus, it takes a while to get together. I mean, it is seriously a cat fur magnet. So you have to go wash it off (and for pictures that took about 5 minutes, and there was still cat hair on it when I was done), lube up whatever you’re going to use it on, put it on, and do your thing. So for a planned session, it’s great, but not so much for a spur of the moment thing. We’re kinda spur of the moment people.
This is not to say that this toy won’t be awesome for other people. I think it will. Especially men who use strokers regularly. It’s just not really for us.
Anything else I should know?
A lot of folks are saying that they use silicone lube with their silicone toys with no adverse effects. You’re welcome to try this out if you like, but I generally don’t. I’m a silicone fanatic, and I don’t know what I’d do if I accidentally ruined one of my silicone toys. So I stick to hybrids and water based lubes. But if you’re one of those people who has to have silicone (I know you’re out there!), test it first on the c-ring, and watch for adverse effects, like the silicone becoming sticky, or stippled.
Other than that, care’s a snap. Toss it in the dishwasher, boil it, bleach it, wash it with a non-abrasive antibacterial soap, then just let it dry and store it where ever you store your other silicone. Don’t worry about your silicone toys touching each other unless you have silicone from a sketchy company. In that case, I’d suggest storing the sketchy toy somewhere else. This silicone’s safe.
Where’d ya get it?
Bad Dragon sent me the Cocksheath free of charge in exchange for an honest review. Bad Dragon is based in Phoenix, Arizona and has been Making Fantasies Real since 2008. Since its inception, Bad Dragon has striven to use the safest materials possible and only uses 100% silicone in the production of its toys.
