Tenga Flip Hole Features
Design And Aesthetics
Where appearance is concerned, the Tenga Flip Hole masturbator has its ducks in order. It is discreet and could very well pass off as a random gadget to an untrained eye. The overall design is cool, and the look fairly elegant. Thankfully, it doesn’t attempt to take on the looks of disembodied female parts, (no vagina, anus, or lips shape), which I think is a huge plus.
An interesting part of the design is the slide cap. It covers the opening when the Tenga Flip Hole is not in use. When it’s time to use the Flip Hole, the cap is moved and placed at the opposite end. In this position, it provides more support to the Tenga Flip Hole and ensures the sex toy remains closed when in use.
Tenga Flip Hole Textures And Construction
Broadly speaking, the Tenga Flip Hole is divided into two regions with distinct patterns (hence the name). That doesn’t mean you flip the masturbator to the opposite side, there is one point of entry. The “flip” is basically placed along the length. Half of the cylinder has what looks like a series of spheres, while the other side has a more rugged texture. Just a note, while the texture looks quite rugged in images, it is (obviously) very soft and squishy. The texture’s job providing sensations, and it melts away rather quickly in use.
Its name and sensation of flip is dependent on the side you have facing towards you. That is the side whose texture provides a more pronounced sensation while in use.
The Tenga Flip Hole is available in four colors, viz. white, black, red, and silver. Each color has slight variations in texture. For example, the Tenga Flip Hole Black has the more intense texture, White the least. Red and Silver fall between both these categories.
While both sides of the texture can match each other quite well, they are not connected to each other. The Tenga Flip Hole can be opened along its length, though it stays connected at the base. As Tenga says, the Flip Hole opens up like a clam. This makes for easier cleaning and is useful for the application of lubricant as well.
Innards of the Tenga Flip Hole are all made from TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) and remain soft to the touch. Again, though the appearance may be a bit jagged, the material itself is very soft and squishy.
Tenga Flip Hole Control Pad
You’ll notice three buttons on each side of the Tenga Flip Hole. These buttons form the “One Hand Control Pad” that is designed for enhanced pinpoint stimulation. The Bottom Pad provides a more enhanced feel at the entry point of the masturbator. Basically, it delivers a squeeze at the insertion point, that makes the entry point of the Flip Hole feel “tighter”.
Its second button is located in the center and squeezes out any trapped air to enhance the feeling of vacuum inside the sex toy. The third button stimulates the tip of the device. Since the top of the device is where the penis is, this can be especially pleasurable. Also, the Tenga Flip Hole has a nice “End Orb” at the top, which delivers amazing sensations to the tip of the penis.
Keep in mind, the control pad works directly off the pressure you apply on these “buttons”. There are no electronics or other technology involved. To achieve their effect, the buttons are directly connected to the TPE layers beneath them. A drawback of this approach is that the soft and seemingly sticky TPE is visible around these buttons and can trap dust and dirt.
Cleaning The Tenga Flip Hole
The Tenga is remarkably easy to clean. It opens up at its length like a clam, and can then be cleaned using hot water and a soap solution. Be careful not to use a strong soap though, as it can cause problems. Once you’re done cleaning, simply place it upside down while opened, and let it dry completely before you pack it away. It’s actually one of the easiest to clean male masturbators available.
TPE is a porous material, and generally not the best choice for sex toys. However, in this case, its soft squishiness makes itself an ideal choice. Due to the nature of the material, you should not share the Tenga Flip Hole with anyone else.
Tenga says the product can last for about 50 uses. That number may change depending on your usage and style. Try to be a bit gentler and it may last longer. In any case, remember the material is porous and should not be kept in use for a very long time. If you notice any odd smells or see tears in the texture, it’s time to dump the Flip Hole for a new one.
Tenga Flip Hole Review — The Masturbator In Use
Tenga Flip Hole comes with two included packets of lubricant. And yes, you should absolutely use a lubricant with this sex toy. It makes it softer and more enjoyable. Adequate lubrication also ensures that the internal texture of the masturbator remains protected and there are no micro tears that will significantly reduce its life.
Maximum insertable length for the penis into the Tenga Flip Hole is 5.9-inches. If you’re longer than that, no worries unless you really want stimulation at the base of the penis. Those who are considerably shorter than that can still use and enjoy the Flip Hole, however, they may miss the amazing sensations at the top provided by the End Orb.
In either case, the Tenga Flip Hole is pleasurable. You’ll feel it right as you enter the Flip Hole, and the sensation just gets deeper as you go in. The sensations are miles ahead of comparable products like the Tenga Eggs. It is easy and enjoyable to go on thrusting, but you may as well try other combinations. Simply playing with the control pad, or rotating the flip hole a bit are both amazing sensations.
Tenga Flip Hole is not simply about an orgasm — your hand could do that. It’s about the incredible feeling and the pleasure that comes along with the texture. Those with a higher than average girth may feel the buttons on the control pad pushed outwards. That’s only natural since the penis will push the TPE. Just make sure you have the slide button in place so you don’t have to make an extra effort in keeping the Flip Hole connected and in position.
Tenga Flip Hole Review — Parting Words
There is no mincing words with the verdict of this Tenga Flip Hole review. It is a good product. Approach it with reasonable expectations, and the Tenga Flip Hole will not disappoint. Of course, keep in mind the limitations of the product as well, it is no promised magic land of fulfillment. I say this because an abundance of positive reviews, like for this product, can create hype and encourage users to have unrealistic expectations. Practically speaking, this is a pretty good sex toy and one you’re very likely to enjoy.
