Every week, The CSPH takes a look at a sexual aid that can be just so darn spectacular for some people, that it needs to be highlighted. This week’s sexual aid is the Lux Male Stimulator LX4+!
How does this product work?
The Lux Male Stimulator LX4+ is a rechargeable vibrating cock ring made of latex-free, non-porous silicone, and arrives nestled in a beautiful, sleek black box and foam casing that is almost too attractive to throw away. Featuring a velvety finish, this cock ring is soft enough that you’ll want to rub your face on it, and easily stretches from a diameter of 1 ¼ inches to 3 inches. Attached to the ring, beneath the silicone casing, is a small vibrating power bullet, measuring 2 inches from top to bottom, that cannot be removed, but there is a small hole in the side of the casing where the toy plugs into a wall charger. Despite its billing as “seamless,” there is a small seam around the outside of the ring, though this is barely noticeable and has no impact on performance. Coming in at just under half a pound, even with the added vibrator, the ring won’t weigh down your delicate bits when worn.
Designed to be worn over the shaft of the penis, this ring should rest flush against the balls; however, unlike some other cock rings, it is not made to be worn around the testicles. It slows the flow of blood from the erect penile tissue, allowing the user to maintain an erection for a longer period of time. The delightful vibrating attachment makes this cock ring especially suited for coupled play, as it can be adjusted to stimulate either a clitoris or a perineum during sex. Furthermore, the vibrations diffuse the sensation of vaginal or anal stimulation throughout the penis, allowing its wearer to last longer before ejaculation. In general, individuals and couples who use the ring during penetrative sex may find that they enjoy it more during activity that is slow and sensual, as opposed to fast and furious, so that the partner’s contact with the vibrator is maximized. Use a varied rhythm of strokes to find out what speed gets your partner purring best!
The vibrations are easy to control, after all, unlike other parts of the genitalia, there’s only one button to press. All you have to do is press the button to turn it on, and then hold down until it reaches the vibration intensity you want. Another quick press will turn it off. Ranging from a mild buzz to a significant rocking, this toy produces an audible sound at its highest speed, but is still nowhere near loud enough to wake your neighbours… although there is no guarantee for the sounds it may rouse you into producing.
Important Things To Note
Before using, lightly rub some water-based lube—silicone based lube will damage your toy—around the inside of the ring to help you put it on and gently pull it over the erect penis. What you get up to after that is completely up to you, as long as you make sure to take it off within 30 minutes and allow at least 60 minute breaks between uses if wearing on a bio-cock. You don’t want to damage the internal tissue of the penis by constricting the bloodflow for too long, the emergency room is distinctly unsexy.
Despite being marketed as a “male” stimulator for partnered play, this toy has arousing potential for people of all genders, at all times. Got a strap-on cock? The ring can be worn over that, too. Lack a partner? Put it on for a deluxe heavy petting session with your hand! Don’t have any kind of cock at all? The bullet can also be used on its own, within the casing; although you won’t be able to utilize the ring mechanism this way, its still a high quality, basic vibrator.
Furthermore, since the ring slightly impedes the user’s ability to penetrate with the full length of their cock due to the size of the vibrator, using it with a partner can be helpful to those who complain about cervix bruising during full penetration.
The toy is fully waterproof- the charge port seals up to stop the flow of water into the toy so you can fully submerse it in water. Apart from its charger, this toy is completely wireless during use. The vibrator is able to be locked by quickly pressing its button three times, to prevent accidental awkwardness when it turns itself on during your commute.
Lux’s packaging includes one cock ring, a wall charger, an instruction manual, and a company information sheet.
Keeping It Clean
To clean the ring, wash it carefully with warm water and mild soap, or a toy cleaner. Let it dry completely, which won’t take long since the high grade silicone repels water.
The Lux Male Stimulator LX4+ is an excellent, easy to use toy for couples to add an exciting new dimension of power pleasure to their play.
