RIP Bad Dragon Designer (Athus Nadorian/Brian Dyer)

lexical lexical
Hello, everyone.

Athus Nadorian (Brian Dyer) was an artist, co-owner, and lead designer for Bad Dragon toys. He passed away on October 11th. I never met him, but I deeply admire his bravery and innovation in the realm of expressing his sexuality and enabling others to do the same.

I know that some of us here are big fans of these toys, so I thought members of the EF community may be interested to hear this news and perhaps pass on their condolences via his memorial website.

Sleep sweet, Athus.

I just heard about that website. Has anyone tried any of their squirting toys before? The designs are a bit scary though so if anyone has any recommendations I'd appreciate it!

I'll be honest, I was incredibly weirded out by his designs and products, but it still sucks when an artist passes on. RIP

To each his own I think they're neat! Like the Tentacle by Whipspider. Sort of crazy and whimsical.

PassionQT, I spent some time browsing the forums the other day after I heard about Athus' accident. There is a "sharing experiences" forum where people have posted reviews (and even videos) of their toys in action. I'm sure there would be lots of helpful information for you there!

I saw that the other day. So sad to hear. While I'm personally not into the 'animal-like' design....to each their own. They're a big hit with the kinky folks in the furry fandom though.

That's such a shame. I've never tried anything from bad dragon, but I think they have some absurdly cool stuff. I'm sure he was a neat person, and certainly creative.

I haven't been on that site for months now, this is really sad news. May he rest in peace. He has brought joy to a lot of people who live a lifestyle that many do not understand. That community openly welcomes all people who who may not feel accepted by society and live alternative lifestyles.
