Sex Toy Reviews: Syn’s Tenga Eggs Review
So over the Easter break, this festive sinner decided to try out the Tenga Egg; eggs being very relevant and all. That’s right Tenga review time! As this is my first review for SinSupply.com, I’m going to stick in my little disclaimer blurb right here. Everyone’s body is different; we all have our own sensitive areas which may differ from others not to mention we all have our preferences of pain/pleasure/fetishes. I like to try items at least three times before giving a review, since I find that orgasms can vary based on mood, stress level, etc. and it wouldn’t be fair to place blame on the product. I purchased this on my own as a little Easter gift to play with my partner.
I’m going to describe what the Tenga Egg is, so if you’re already familiar with it, skip on by to the sexy stuff below. Here is a great Tenga Egg video which should give you a good idea of how it’s used:
This product is a relatively new item on the market and is yet another brainchild of Japanese culture. It’s classified as a masturbation sleeve, and intended for male masturbation, but I know some pretty creative people who recommended I try it on my bits as well. More on that later. The product can be purchased individually or as a 6 pack. There are 6 styles (in no particular order); Stepper, Wavy, Silky, Spider, Twister, and Clicker. The styles refer to the texture on the internal cavity of the egg. The egg is made of a really soft stretchy product called TPE (Thermo-Plastic Elastomer) which is considered hypoallergenic, if that’s a concern of yours. The downside of TPE is that it is porous, and thus will permit the growth of some nasties without proper cleaning. TPE is also free of phthalate which has been recently associated with some negative health effects. These are intended to be for one time use; I have heard accounts of people washing and reusing them with success but I wouldn’t try it. The Tenga Egg packaging is discrete and absolutely adorable. If it’s one thing the Japanese know how to do, it’s to package great products into cute little containers.
Down to business, so to speak. When I opened it up, I “squeed” in delight at how cute it was! 6 eggs in a little egg carton. I knew what they would look like, but honestly. Totally Easter-ish, complete with the color scheme and everything. I should’ve hid them around the house and done a naughty-Easter egg hunt. Once you unwrap the egg, the product is located in a hard egg shell. So I got this egg out (I chose the Twister for my first little victim) and held it in my hand. There’s an insert that looks like a vial inside that contains a lube pouch. I held the egg in my hand and my god…I can’t even explain how cute this thing is; it jiggles a little bit, it’s soft, white, and translucent. Naturally, I just wanted to finger it a little to get in the mood, and meanwhile my partner is raising an eyebrow while I’m teasing this egg. Occasionally I need to lead him by the hand and give him a little “trust me” wink for encouragement…I suppose I’m the more adventurous one. I took the lube and applied it along the rim. I also took the lube and fingered the egg a little bit too; don’t want any weird sticking! I didn’t use the entire pouch of lube because I know he likes some friction, but the demonstration vid shows them emptying the whole packet in there. I would recommend he be hard for this, but whatever floats your boat. I slowly took it and put it on his tip and slid it down just enough so the tip was just touching the back of the egg. It looked like a little pope hat on his cock and I couldn’t help but laugh a little. Before he could object I started rolling it around the head like chalk on a cue stick. That shut him up quick cuz oh yea, he liked it. He liked it a lot…flopping-back-into-the-pillows-a-lot. I could see him getting even harder so I tried stroking. This egg slid down nice and easy, although it made me nervous to see that it got REALLY translucent at the tip and I was sure the egg was going to tear/snap/break. There really was no problem though, and as I kept going I got more and more confident it was going to hold. The texture made it worth doing the tricks of the trade from barberpole, to indian-burn, to straight up and down, and of course his favorite of the night; chalking the cue-stick. One thing to note is that Tenga eggs get a little slippery, especially when you get some lube on your hand. It took me a few seconds to get the perfect grip; the “top” of the fingers should be about halfway up the egg to make sure you have enough grip and to allow enough slack for stretching. Tenga eggs are self-contained; this means no wipes, no , no messiness at all!
Cleanup and Post-orgasmic notes
As I’ve said, the product is for a one time use, aka disposable like a condom. I would not recommend using one again, even if you clean it, that’s not where I would want an infection.
He has since used the Stepper, Clicker, and Silky; he has found that he finds the bumps distracting and prefers the more…cohesive textures. The Silky Tenga Egg has been his favorite so far. The material is really nice and smooth and he likens it to a soft blowjob. Not a realistic one, but definitely trumps hand-masturbation.
Just for men? I don’t think so!
Based on a recommendation from a girlfriend, I flipped the egg inside out and mounted it on a dildo to use as a textured dildo. I stretched it down the shaft to the base and used it “as normal”. I would say that it was interesting and hot, but wasn’t enough of an experience to warrant paying for more Tenga Eggs. Let it be known that I don’t prefer things ribbed or bumpy and so I also preferred the Twister texture the best because of it. It definitely enhanced the texture of the dildo since it was such a soft material but it was finicky to hold and thrust. It was much easier when he was controlling it, but that’s a lot of work for a toy, isn’t it?
While this product is known to be “good for travel” due to how discrete it is, and yes, I agree, it doesn’t look as obscene as some of the Fleshlights, but if anyone’s seen one before, they’re going to know exactly what it is. It is nice that you can just throw it in your bag without thinking about grabbing the lube too.
Six varieties of textures are available; Stepper, Wavy, Silky, Spider, Twister, and Clicker which can be purchased individually or as a variety pack. You can also get your favorite texture in a 6 pack as well. A single egg is $7.20 ~ $7.92 and a six pack is $45.98.
All in all, I would recommend the Tenga Egg for male solo play and couples play as well.
