Sex Toy Reviews: Tenga 3D
In response to our highly popular Tenga Egg review, we present another product by Tenga. The Tenga 3D. If you’re just looking to buy, click right here to purchase any of the five varieties available.
The Tenga 3D is a masturbation sleeve for men comparable in design and function to the ever popular Fleshlight. There are five textures and all of them are available at SinSupply.com; they are the Pile, Polygon, Module, Spiral, and Zen. The sleeve material is made out of TPE/Elastomer which is soft, stretchy, and odorless. Also, they’re phthalate-free for those who care.
The 3D comes packaged in a hard plastic cyclindrical “award display” kind of case with a stand that is shipped inside out to show off the internal texture. A lot of thought went into the case, kind of like Ikea meets Apple. The sleeves are all a solid creamy white color. The bottom stand contains the lubrication and the instructions… in case you need help figuring out how to stick your dick into a hole. When you take the sleeve out, flip it inside out so the textured side faces in. Let’s review the five textures in a little more depth:
- Pile – A series of small triangular shapes that are packed in close density at the “bottom” and more spread out at the “top”. This provides a variation texture as you slide from top to bottom.
- Polygon – This one makes me think of Thing (the superhero in the Fantastic Four), the random angled surface creates a variety of pressure points along the shaft.
- Module – The whole sleeve is covered in small cubes that are at different “elevations” to produce a highly random texture.
- Spiral – Looks like the eternal spiral staircase from hell; tiny tiny stairs in a spiral that will evenly and softly squeeze the cum out of your cock.
- Zen – A real modern looking pattern of continuous swirls that are placed really closely together. The top and bottom are slightly spaced out, and the ridges around the center area are really close together. Looks like those sand gardens that monks take days making.
Let’s get into the good stuff… pun intended. Prep the sleeve. Pull it off the stand and flip it inside out. If you’re going to try using the smooth side (with the texture on the outside) make sure you check inside for the hard plastic thingie that comes off the stand and lodges itself in there. Lube the lip, then pour a bunch of lube into the hole and massage it in. If you’ve read our Tenga Egg review, you are probably mentally comparing this to the Egg. Let me make the comparison for you. The Eggs are cheaper, compact, and much more discreet but intended for limited use. The Tenga 3D is much larger, intended for frequent use, and it places a lot more pressure along the entire shaft. For this reason, I think the 3D has an edge over the Eggs in the feel department. I got the Spiral to test out and it feels even better than it looks. Once you slide in there, squeeze it a bit to get the air out for the best suction. It’s about 5 inches long so you’ll stretch the top if you’re longer. I found that it didn’t stretch as much as the Egg so those of you who are very large may find you can’t fit it all in there, but you’re probably used to that. There is a lot more suction with the 3D, which I enjoy immensely, and the Spiral surface was just intense. Tenga seems to prefer to do research on the senses and finding cool textures that feel crazy/awesome as opposed to trying to simulate a pussy/asshole/throat. I strangely appreciate this. Why SHOULD masturbation sleeves be limited to the orifices we are socially pigeon-holed into fucking?
You know that first thrust into your partner? How absolutely amazing that feels, and how it makes you gasp in ecstasy? Imagine some unexplored world where the hole is DESIGNED to suction your cock and grip oh-so-pleasurably onto your head and shaft. Shiver me hardon, I’m a masturbatory pirate in the uncharted territory of this Spiral sleeve. Once you’re done, the stand has a “tray” to put the sleeve on before you pull yourself together to clean it out.
Cleanup and Post-Orgasmic Notes
In the clean up department, this has got to be one of the easiest. Simply flip it and clean it. Word of warning. Since it’s a stretchy material, it’s tight. Ever try to wrap a rubber band around something and it gets away from you and snaps? Imagine that with a rubber cup full of cum. No I didn’t give myself a facial, but I would say take it slow and carefully ease it inside out, unless you’re into that sort of thing. Once it’s flipped inside out, rinse it with a little warm water and mild soap. Get in those crevices. Even though it’s an antibacterial Elastomer material, don’t be lazy. No fungus on my dick, thanks. Here’s another clever aspect; the stand is a drying rack. The shaft in the middle of the stand that holds it in the center of the display case has small holes at the top of the shaft to encourage air circulation. You slide the inverted (so that’s texture-side OUT) sleeve back on the shaft but leave about an inch at the bottom. This lets air come in and dry out the smooth side. It doesn’t take too long to dry because the crevice-y side is facing out and the ridges are probably stretched out to encourage some air circulation, but make sure it is BONE dry before you give it a push to slide that sweetie all the way down the shaft and put the clear case back on. Nothing grosser than a sleeve steaming in an enclosed case with evaporated cum dew on the clear plastic. Does that evoke an image or what?
Conclusion yes, I fucking liked it. I liked it better than the Egg, since I apparently like manly robust masturbation sleeves. It’s discrete, not offensive to ladies who might accidentally walk into your bedroom, and honestly looks like a cool piece of art. Maybe that’s a stretch, but it’s pretty cool looking and far less likely to cause offense than a Fleshlight. You can pick up any of the five varieties at our online store by clicking right here.
With all these features packed into one small case, the Tenga 3D has won the well deserved Red Dot Award. The first male masturbation product to grace the list of winners. Each aspect of this product was thoroughly thought out; from the display case that doubles as a drying rack, the base that can be used as a tray, and the unique textures. This is truly a well engineered piece of work. Congratulations to Tenga for their award!
