Ahh, Tenga…you raise my hopes and then dash them to pieces.
Last week I discovered the Tenga Egg, and quickly proclaimed it to be my new favorite masturbation accessory due to its low low price compared to my previous playmate the Fleshlight and its stunning ability to be like my hand, only moreso.
So when Babeland offered to send me another in Tenga's male masturbator line I jumped at the opportunity, for if their most inexpensive product could WOW me like that, just think of what would happen with more wacky Asian ingenuity and a slightly higher budget.
Enter the Tenga Double Hole Sleeve.
This offering is the size of one of those extra tall beer cans, is made of white plastic and has two “screw-off” caps, one on top, one on bottom. (The use of quotes is because these caps not only pop off, but pop off when the opposite side is being used.) Inside is a TPE sleeve. (And TPE, we have learned is porous, but phthalate free, and can be washed with soap and water.) The sleeve is, according to the website, divided into the “sweet” and “bitter” ends. The bitter tight and lined with tiny nubs and the sweet wider with larger nubs.
For whatever reason this sleeve comes pre-lubricated, something that was immediately annoying, as while using one side, the lube and cap get pressed off the other side, and quickly get messy. I can honestly think of no reason that something like this would need to be pre-lubed. Honestly, who amongst us who choose to masturbate with a sleeve do it anywhere WITH THE SLEEVE that we wouldn't have lube.
It's not like I carry a Tenga Egg around in my messenger bag. And if I did I sure as hell wouldn't be shy about carrying one of those teensy toothpaste tube thingies of lube.
So, usage was a disappointment all the way around. While I was amazed by the Tenga Egg‘s ability to go from something so small to swallowing me whole, the Double Hole Sleeve seems tremendously undersized, both in length and girth acceptance. (And again, I'm over average, but not HUGE, so this doesn't bode well for many…) Then came the “sweet” and “bitter” textures. I flipped this thing around several times and still couldn't tell the difference between sweet and bitter, all I know is neither managed to coax an orgasm out of me.
Something that the Egg did rather quickly afterward.
So, Tenga…what else you got?
