Tenga Flip Hole and 3-D Sculpted Ecstasy: Sex Toys for Men

Guest blog by David Pittle, Ph.D.

Tenga, a Japanese company that makes sex toys for men, recently
sent me the Flip Hole and 3-D Sculpted Ecstasy for review, two different types
of male masturbation devices. I heartily recommend these to men for solo use,
for couples who enjoy mutual or simultaneous masturbation, and for anyone who
wants to pleasure a male partner.
Flip Hole

While most of the male masturbation market has churned out
artificial vaginas, Tenga’s Flip Hole is a real improvement. 

The Flip Hole is
designed to open up completely. This allows you to lay your penis down on one
side, then close it up for use. Or you can close it with the clip and enter the

The vacuum pump formed
by the material is controlled by the buttons to create a squeezing pleasure.
The wing gate has big ribs midway in to grip and hold you. The side ribs add
side stimulation for maximum feel. The lip flat provides a good grip upon
insertion, while the shield flap helps to keep lubricants inside. 
The innovative opening makes for cleanliness not often
possible with male masturbation devices. The entire unit flips open for easy
cleaning. Then hang it on the clip for drying.

I received two of the four versions of the Flip Hole. Aside
from the coloring of the case — Black, White, Silver and Red — the pattern of
the soft elastomer material inside varies, giving each version a significantly
different feeling. The two I tried both felt great. I understand that the Black Flip Hole has a firmer inner material for a more intense experience, but I
didn’t have that one to test.
My one criticism is that the weight and bulk of the Flip
Hole make it a bit awkward and tiring to use. I’m sure that the choice of the
stimulating material must be the reason, as the shell can’t weigh much. Was it
worth the effort? Absolutely. I just hope that Tenga will find a way to make it
lighter without giving up the advantages of this fine masturbation device.
3-D Sculpted Ecstasy

Built with the same foam material as the Tenga Egg, which I previously reviewed, the Tenga 3-D Sculpted Ecstasy comes in five textures. The photo shows (left
to right) the Pile, Module, SpiralPolygon, and Zen (an interesting undulating
series of shallow spirals). 
Each comes in a package with the texture side out and on a
mounting stand. For use, we take it off the stand, a dowel that goes up the
middle, and turn it inside-out. (Actually it comes inside-out, so we turn it
“inside-in.” See the photo where the Module texture is partially turned.

With the exception of the Zen, I found all the textures pleasant and
virtually indistinguishable. The Zen had a softer and gentler effect—but
the difference was not extreme. Of course, you might have a different

The 3D Sculpted Ecstasy comes with a packet of lubricant for
the first use. Squeeze the lubricant liberally around the hole and inside. And
go to town.
Clean-up is easy. Just reverse the inside-out process and wash with your favorite soap and water or toy cleaner.
I really like this product. For personal use, I will return often to the Tenga 3D Sculpted Ecstasy. Between these two products, the Flip Hole and the Sculpted Ecstasy, competitors will have to struggle to keep up. These are far ahead of other devices I have used.
