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 Tenga 3D Spiral!
How does this product work?
The Spiral is one of the five designs available in Tenga’s latest line of masturbation sleeves, the Tenga 3D. Built around the concept of reversibility, this masturbation sleeve would probably be the sex toy of choice for Superman.
Like all designs within the Tenga 3D line, the Spiral is packaged inside out on its stand (which serves as a great place to dry your toy after use), allowing you to see the texture of the toy before purchasing. Simply stretch and fold the toy right-side in, add a generous amount of lube, and the Tenga 3D is ready to go! The Tenga 3D’s strong craftsmanship allows you to repeatedly turn the toy inside out after playtime to clean and dry.
While the opening of the Spiral is surprisingly tight, in a really good way, it contrasts really well with the more spacious end of the toy. In this reviewers opinion, the opening of the Spiral feels a lot like receiving a blow job, while the inner spiraled texture feels a lot like vaginal sex. As such, the Tenga 3D Spiral allows you to rapidly change between drastically different textures depending on the desired feel. The sleeve may certainly feel snug to some penis owners, though this is rarely a bad thing especially as the Tenga 3D is very elastic.
Keeping it Clean
Because this toy has a relatively long life of about 50 uses, it’s really important to carefully clean the toy after each use. After play, carefully turn the toy inside out with the hole facing the sink and not your face, though you can start cleaning the Tenga 3D by running cool water directly into the toy for a few seconds before turning it inside out. Begin washing the sleeve with cool water; contrary to the cleaning process of most items, using warm to hot water changes the physical qualities of ejaculate, making it much harder to clean these types of toys. After you’ve washed most of the ejaculate away, you can switch to warmer water and soap to complete the cleaning process. To ensure both the outside and inside dry properly, wipe down one side of the toy before turning it inside out one more time and sitting it on its convenient stand.
Important Things To Note:
The Tenga 3D line is made from high quality, antibacterial elastomer. Essentially a major league version of the Tenga Egg, the Tenga 3D’s material is extremely friendly to the sensitive areas of the penis and provides a pleasurable experience (the Tenga 3D Spiral is most like the Twister Tenga Egg). Included with the Tenga 3D is an instructional pamphlet for play and cleanup, a small packet of lube good for one or two sessions (depending on how liberally you apply it), a stand, and a hard, clear, plastic display case. Because the Tenga 3D toys are designed to be stored inside out on the stand, the display case turns these masturbation sleeves into a sex toy work of art.
As someone who has used Tenga’s Egg products, I was not disappointed. While I will continue to use the Tenga Eggs—primarily because they are much faster to clean and are more disposable—trying out the Tenga 3D was definitely the right decision and I would certainly buy another Tenga 3D sleeve in the near future. Depending on where you buy Tenga’s products, the cost of one 3D sleeve is about equivalent to a 6-pack of the Tenga eggs. While the Tenga Eggs do not last nearly as long as the Tenga 3D sleeves, if you are new to masturbation sleeves, you might want to try an Egg before you invest in a 3D sleeve. While they are definitely two separate experiences, chances are you’ll love the 3D sleeve if the Eggs fit your fancy.
