Tenga Flip Hole and 3-D Sculpted Ecstasy: Sex Toys for Men
Guest blog by David Pittle, Ph.D.
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.
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
