Tenga Flip Hole Black

Postby Flare Phoenix » Thu Oct 29, 2009 5:21 pm

SO are we allowed to review non Bad Dragon toys on this site? If not then please remove this thread.

So a few weeks ago I wanted to buy another "self pleasure" toy. Originally I was going to buy a toy from BD but due to my current living arrangements finding the time and privacy to use one but both few and far apart so I decided to get something that I could be a little more discreet with. After a bit of searching I came across the Tenga Fliphole. It was a little bit on the pricey side but I'd read a lot of reviews, most of them praising so thought I'd give it a try.

The toy itself is very well made and looks aesthetically pleasing. At first glance you wouldn't really guess it was a sex toy. The toy is very easy to use and clean, all you need to do is open it up and run it under the tap for a few minutes. To dry it you can either leave it open or balance it on a stand that is included.

When it comes to using the toy you have to take it off the stand it comes attached to, open it up and put some lube in it (the product came with 3 different lubes specially made for the toy, more on these later), close the toy back up, reattach the toy but now upside down to the stand and then use it like a normal fleshlight. The feeling I got while using the toy was great, not "mind-blowing" as some of the reviewers like to put but definitely better than the simple "hand to penis" method. There are also three buttons on either side of the toy that can be pushed down to vary the suction and pressure. Personally these didn't much of a difference for me other than making the toy a bit quieter to use.

However there are two things I'll say that kind of annoyed me while using it. The first is that everytime you do use it a squishing sound is made. It's not a particularly loud sound but but it may dampen the mood a bit, it also isn't very stealthy. The second thing, and this isn't really related to the toy I suppose, is that whenever I used it I always got the feeling of wanting to shove something up my butt. Never really got that feeling much before but ah well.

Specification wise the makers say that the toy can take up to 6.5 inches in length and 2.5 inches in diameter. I personally was able to use the toy over the whole of my length without any problems but the well endowed people might want to take note before buying.

Another thing this toy came with was three variations of some lube specifically made for the toy (but can used with other toys). The lube was labeled Real, Mild and Wild. I have tried all three and at the moment I'd say my favorite is currently Real. The Wild lube feels very nice but is way too runny and guaranteed to cause lots of mess. The Mild Variety also feels nice but has the opposite problem of being way to viscous, it's a struggle just to get some of the stuff out of the bottle.

Overall they toy is great and I'm happy as far as using it is concerned. The only bad point however is , as I've said earlier, the toy is quite pricey. The version I got was £79.99 ($124.90), there is a slightly cheaper version thats in a white colour for £69.99 but thats still quite a lot.

Heres and image of the toy.

It's ok to post non-BD reviews. You just won't get a discount in BD purchases for it (AFAIK).

I've been intrested in it before, but it seems huge, too expensive and may not feel very good for small dicks. Plus it seems to be annoying to clean.

Detailed pics of the toy would be nice.

I got intrested in this viscous lube... I have a thing for viscous stuff :mrgreen:

That's true, very viscous and not at all stringy- more like a jelly.

Hmmm. I have to admit I've been curious about those tenga products since I've seen them online... However they don't look that -sexy- to me.

I'm not sure if its because I'm a more visually oriented person or what. That sexy factor is one of the reasons that drew me to BD toys XD

I bought my mate a fleshlight and even though I'm female, we both enjoyed it. It was very realistic... But that tenga thing reminds me of some kind of computer type thing lol.

Good review though and thanks. Always interested in buying 'boy' toys :p

Thats another bad point about the toy. Unless your looking at porn you really have to use you imagination when using it.

Actually one of the good points about it is the simplicity of cleaning it. All you really have to do is run it under a tap. But yeah it is really expensive, wish I bought the BD toy instead.

I have to add a comment here on the Flip hole. I recently purchased one and I also own a Fleshlight.
I found the flip hole messy and not nearly as soft as the Fleshlight. I also found the Fleshlight softer, realistic and had
much more vacuum when the bottom cap is tight. I'd say, IF, you are considering the Flip hole don't go for a Fleshlight
with super tight and speedbump inserts. With all that said I do use the Flip hole but not very often.My 2 cents.

The two flip holes offer very different feels. The Black is a stiffer more resistive feel while the white is softer and spongier.
Understand that neither is remotely trying to be "realistic". For that, you'd want to stick with Fleshlight or (better) go to some of the Japanese onoholes that aim for realistic paths and internal structures.

I like both Flip Holes because they offer a sensation that is different...one you don't get from fucking, which makes them a nice compliment to it instead of a substitution or simulation, but that's an intensely personal aesthetic choice, the same way that the choice between a realistic and fantasy dildo might be.

Heya,

I clarified the forum rules regarding reviews of third party manufacturer's toys in this thread. Basically it's exactly as you think - third party stuff's fine, just you won't get a $5 discount for it :p

Well, this thread isn't exactly new, but I just discovered this section of the forum, so I'll throw my 2c in:

I bought a Flip Hole Silver for my significant other awhile ago.

Pros:
- Very easy to clean. I LOVE that you can open it up to really scrub it down and properly air dry.
- From my research, the material that the Flip Hole is made of is much more body-safe and less bacteria-harboring than Fleshlight's. Frankly, Fleshlight's material is terrifying: highly porous, and it's difficult to clean inside them. I keep thinking I must be misunderstanding something given how popular they are, but I guess jelly toys are popular too despite being little UTI-generators. Also, male anatomy naturally resists UTIs far better than a woman's does, so if you're using it for solo play, perhaps it's not much of an issue. My SO and I, though, were looking for couple's play toys, so while it's of utmost importance that it's not hazardous to him, that's only half the battle: if he uses a bacteria-covered toy and we get frisky immediately afterwards, now I'm in trouble.

Neutral:
- Doesn't look like a sex toy. It looks odd enough that if someone were to see it, they'd probably ask what it is, though, and I can't think of anything you could plausibly pass it off as. If you or your SO find overtly sexualized toys offputting, this would be a great choice. Very sci-fi. It's really pretty inside, like it's fully of squishy crystals.

Cons:
- At the end of the day, SO didn't really like it. He said it was nice, but he'd rather "use me", hehe, anyday. It wasn't uncomfortable, and it was good enough to get him off, but there just wasn't anything special or intense. So, it might be an acceptable option for solo play, but if you have a partner and you're looking for something to kick things up a notch, this may not do it for you. He far prefers the tenga eggs.
- It has limited uses (I think 50 is recommended). I've read that this may be more of a cultural thing, that in tenga's country of origin, people feel better about limited-use masturbators. (Sort of like how baking mixes weren't very well accepted until they started requiring an egg...human psychology has some weird quirks.) So, it might be safe to keep using it after that, or they may even come out with longer-use toys once Tenga is more comfortable in an international market. Still, after suffering the consequences of badly made, bacteria-ridden toys, I would never recommend that someone use a toy outside of the manufacturer's recommendation.
- Yes, it makes a lot of noise. It was a little giggle-inducing at first, but if you have no roommates and are pretty comfortable with each other, I didn't see that as a problem.


EDIT: One more note: The Flip Hole feels much cheaper in person than it looks on screen, the exterior made of lightweight plastic. I can't make up my mind if this impression is deceptive: the parts all fit together quite well, and there's no real reason that it ought to feel heavy. But, it scares me every time I put it back together, and we only used it 2-3 times: there's a plastic frame you have to slide onto it to keep the two halves of the toy together, and that frame just feels like it's going to snap someday. If it ever did, you could probably just use a rubber band to hold the two halves together, anyway.

Oh, and those "buttons" on the side: I couldn't figure out how those were supposed to work until I got the toy in person. They are not "buttons", and there are no electronics or moving parts in the toy: rather, it's a panel on the side that you can press with your fingers to squeeze the toy tighter around your, er, equipment. The rest of the toy's exterior is solid plastic, so without the panel, you wouldn't be able to squeeze.

EDIT #2: Take care with Tenga's lube. They gave us 3 free tubes, but we threw them all away: they contain parabens.
