Thanks! How do you like yours?


My first time with him wasn't the best, but the second was absolutely fantastic. He's very floppy thanks to how thin his shaft is between the head/bulb and knot, and that helps him hit some nice spots inside, lol. He's a favorite and I'm looking at getting a medium (well, onesize) now. He's very different from my other toys and despite how large his head is, he slides in so smoothly thanks to his shape.


What firmness is yours? Does he feel textured?

He's in 5. I'm not too sensitive, so I don't really feel much texture at all. He's completely without that printer texture, so despite the petals of his head and the other details on his knot he's actually very smooth feeling to me. He's very pleasurable, mainly because of his head design. I don't even really notice the girth of his head much at all. It does give me the feeling of being knotted twice, in a way. I guess his head is best compared to any number of brood eggs you can get from one of the other sites. I rather like it. To clarify, I don't do much thrusting at all with him. The thinness after his head makes him awkward and floppy, so I prefer to sit on him and just do a bit riding/grinding back and forth on him. His flexibility lets me take him to the base without any cervix poking or anything uncomfortable.

Maybe there's a lot more failed customs in the Adopts than I recognize (going from what they've said they will and won't do) but is it not weird that they do such consistent large drops despite having such a long custom wait? I mean, FB has a long wait time too, but they don't do drops anywhere near as often, and usually only for event colors. If BD has so many customs to fill that it's taking months, why on earth are they using their molds on Frankenpours? :psyduck:

If I had to guess, it's so that they don't have to throw out the excess silicone from making other toys.

Leftover silicone is expensive, too expensive not to use in a frankenpour. My question is why they have leftover silicone in the first place. Also, adoptions are a great way to train new people, test out colors, and sell flops and other things. It's worth it for a business the size of BD to devote some people to adoptions because it's profitable. However, the amount of dropped toys is so few compared the the amount of custom orders they get, it really probably takes up very little of their time overall.

Agreed, there's something horribly wrong that some frankenpours seem to result in such an excess of silicone that, in some cases, almost fill an entire toy, with a bit of a second color. I understand needing a little extra, but there would ideally be so little that its what goes into teenies...

BD needs to invest in some squishies to add to their merch line. :stick: But I mean it would make more sense to at least use them on models less people order, or that have far options in customs now. Like the sheaths - they either get bought quick, or never drop. Seems weird to drop a lot of stuff from popular models when the customs are so long. Yknow?

Or you could say screw it to the whole adopts thing and learn silicone black magic like Exotic Erotics. Guess Bad Dragon isn't interested in dick witchcraft. :widesmile:

Well, if I were a business, I'd want to make sure that my adoptions got bought quickly... which would mean doing a good bit of the frankenpours in popular models. It's a calculated risk, but with better odds than doing the frankenpours of mostly unpopular stuff. The sheaths and penetrables (and some insertables) are limited in firmness options, so unless the extra silicone is already the proper firmness, it can't be used for those.

Amaranthe wrote:My question is why they have leftover silicone in the first place.


My first thought is that fades and marbles don't necessarily require a constant amount of the colors involved, so they have to make enough to fill the mold even if things get weird. Depending on batch size and whether it's a custom or stock color, they may have anywhere between zero left over (in-stock color that a toy later in the queue also has, and can be used immediately) to a whole toy's worth (flop insurance on a custom that went perfect first try). Whether this is actually the case, I dunno.

I really hate to see the shift from unique customs to in-stocks, most of which, frankly, I feel are ugly. I don't have disposable income or time to stalk the adoptions page. I save up for every toy I own. I get that for most people, in-stocks are great, especially if you're not picky about color or firmnesses, and have the money to buy toys as they drop... but the Hanns thing really bums me out. There are 7 smalls in-stock, 4 of which are a solid color. I get some pretty severe cramps because of PCOS, often times from too big/too firm toys, and that extra inch in circumference makes all the difference from "perfect" to "oh dear god get it out asap". So that extra inch is pretty significant. And also considering most in-stocks drop in 5 firmness, which is too hard at 6 inches circumference... eh.

I just hate that they would rather us stalk the flops, for a size in very limited firmnesses and colors? Most of the in-stocks are a solid color. If I'm spending that much money on a toy, I want it to fit my exact specifications- special colors, suction cups, the works. Right now on the adoptions page, most toys I see are a single color with no extras. I just feel like they're really trying to discourage people from ordering customs now, with the price hike for what used to be default colors and the size/color pruning. I don't want to settle for something because it's all that's left. If I'm going to be spending 100$+, it better be absolutely perfect, and I don't mind waiting months if that's what it takes.

It's just, for a company that prides itself on "making your fantasy real", it feels like they are shifting away from that mentality.

just kinda skimmed over this whole recent situation... but doesn't make much sense that BD would be removing colors and telling people to contact support about custom colors meanwhile significantly reducing the custom options they're willing to do.
seems like a huge slap in the face to anyone whos a fan of BD...

edit: then again, if it's what they have to do to get wait times and quality under control then maybe it's for the better...

He previously had a small and a medium. However, now it's been realized that he only has one size (which used to be medium).

I wonder why the recent promos have had such short descriptions. I know that the new products have had no story but it's kinda weird seeing these sales with like one line descriptions. Not that it really matters to me, just interesting to notice

Maybe it's not a big enough deal? It's really just an inventory drop rather than a custom color (it doesn't even have a name). Cool color, but after them taking out a lot of the toy colors it's not really a big surprise they're avoiding more customs with this too.

Kind of a bummer, since all the previous Easter/spring sales were boring solids. This time they come out with a neat marble but only as a drop :/ Maybe you could still ask for it but $50 or so since it's 5 or 6 colored marble? Bad timing I guess.
