Tenga masturbators - a weird and wonderful alternative to Fleshlight?

Posted by Mr Betty on

 

Lots don't know about Tenga.  If so, click this, have a browse, go "what the fuck!" and come back to read the rest. 

We've noticed the popularity of men's masturbation toys, especially Fleshlights, since our recent blog on the taboo of men's sex toys, which seemed to strike a chord. But what about a Tenga? It's a huge brand in Japan and makes some amazing male sex toys but it is much less well-known in the UK - you men (and couples) are missing out! :) 

Who are Tenga? 

Tenga was founded in Japan in 2005 and focuses on male sex toys, especially masturbators. It's founder was an engineer and he set out to create something different to the mainstream. The result is wonderfully quirky, kinky and beautifully designed products, different from the standard vagina and dildo flesh-like sex toys. Japan has brought us bukkake, the Hitachi magic wand, shibari, kinbaku, nuru massage, used knickers in vending machines, etc so no surprise that Tenga has turned into a great success. One of its senior employers also holds the world record for masturbation, at something like 9 hours straight....I know, I know...that raises all kinds of questions.  

Quick guide to Tenga toys

The Japanese word "tenga" (典雅) means "righteously arranged and elegant" and this sort of the sums up the products. They have a wide range from basic single use masturbators for a few pounds up to high-end vibrating toys to rival Fleshlight. However, they are all designed to be elegant and stylish and not look like a vagina or be in any way erotic. This makes them less embarrassing to buy and to have lying around and easier to use for couples who may be put off by toys directly mimicking the female body. 

They also make a thing of varied, quirky and interesting designs on the outside - almost like pop-art - and lend themselves to being collected and just looked at apart from the obvious use. This is particularly true of Tenga Eggs, more of which below. 

Tenga Cup - where it all started

Tenga started off making Tenga Cups and they look like nothing else.  They are designed to be single-use masturbators, although there are now reusable models.  That said, the single-use ones can be used again with careful cleaning or by using a condom. On the outside, they look like a very large soft drink bottle or can of deodorant. On the inside, they have a silicone sleeve that creates a powerful sucking vacuum. They deliberately don't look like a vagina, inside or out, but give the same effect as say a Fleshlight. 

Why make something disposable? Well there is price. Some people want to experiment with something cheap and easy. Also great for travelling and disposing or even for taking to work - those naughty Japanese salarymen. 

They look great too and I can imagine having a collection :) Looks aside they all have different textures and firmness. 

Tenga Cup collection
One that looks particularly interesting is the Tenga Air Tech Twist Reusable Cup - with a little dial at the top to adjust between five different tightness settings by twisting the sleeve.

Tenga Flip Hole

A step up from the Tenga Cup, the Tenga Flip Hole range is reusable and comes in a clamshell design for easy washing. The great thing about these is that you don't even need a full erection to use them, so they work well for those with erectile dysfunction or who just want to be stimulated to erection. Again, they come in a variety of designs from plain black to colourful.

If you really want to splash out there is the Tenga Flip O Zero Vibrating Masturbator - the Rolls Royce of masturbators. 

Tenga Eggs

If you think the Tenga Cup is a bit odd, then have a look at Tenga Eggs. A cross between Kinder Eggs, a Fleshlight insert and some modern art. Cheap, disposable and wonderfully quirky. I love them. 

 

Tenga Egg Collection

So what in God's name is going on here? Well they are the size of a normal large egg and look great. Unwrap the plastic exterior and there is a silicone egg with an opening at one end, along with a sachet of special lube. Put the lube in the egg and then put on your penis and away you go. It's stretches the whole length of the penis and gives a great sensation. Each egg has a different feel and texture inside so try them all :)

Which Tenga Egg is best? Well I haven't tried them all but there is a great review here from from sextoycollective.com on what they call Japanese sex eggs. Easter will never be the same again. 

Tenga Crysta and Tenga 3D Spinner

Taking the design element even further, the Tenga Crysta and Tenga 3D Spinner ranges are works of art that look good on display. They even come with little drying stands :) 

The 3D range is designed to reverse, to display the artistic interior pattern and then flip back to normal for playtime. Very clever.

Tenga vs Fleshlight 

Well it's not either/or - they are both great but some key differences:

- Fleshlight for an attempt at a realistic look and feel, while Tenga for something completely different and beautiful

- feel-wise they are both great and get the job done with lots of variety across the models. However, people have said Tenga is a touch more tight and perhaps Fleshlight a touch more realistic in terms of the feel of flesh

- Tenga gives you the cheap disposal option and with the reusable option you just wash the whole unit whereas with Fleshlight you need to remove the inside sleeve to wash separately

- because they tend to be a bit tighter, Tenga's also tend to be bit more noisy with tighter suction. Some won't care, some might like and some might find this difficult if lacking privacy.

Conclusion - buy both. Obviously! :)
