Ok, so I know I said I wasn’t going to do any reviews for a while. But I figured this one for the Tenga Egg Twister would be pretty quick to ‘crack out,’ pardon the pun. Also, I was excited because this is the first Tenga toy we’ve tried since doing the Smart Vibe Ring review.
The Tenga Egg Twister is a male masturbator sleeve, made from TPE (Thermoplastic elastomer). It’s really stretchy so it can accommodate a range of penis shapes and sizes. For instance, Mr Bunny measures approximately 7 inches in length and 4 ½ inches in circumference. Plenty of area to cover with a masturbator, and the Tenga Egg Twister has enough stretch to surround his cock.
Though the packaging sleeve says it’s for ‘men,’ lets not forget that there may be trans folk out there. Or male gendered people who identify as female. So this is just a reminder to companies that they can do better in terms of their packaging, by being more gender-/ identity-fluid. Just call it a textured sleeve! The pictures give the idea of what you can use it for.
Using the Tenga Egg Twister
Included in the plastic egg shell, rolled up into the centre of the TPE egg is a sachet of lubricant. This is useful, as it means you can play straight away. If you’ve packed your new egg to take away on a weekend you’re good to go! The ingredients of the lubricant are:
- Sodium polyacrylate
- Methylparaben – I’ve highlighted this one in red as I don’t think it is strictly body-safe. See my post on Toxic Toys to see why! One point I will make is that a lot of the claims about parabens I’ve come across relate to breast cancer. And they are often isolated studies, done in cell culture. I’m a science geek by training so thought I’d better point that out. Using items that contain parabens in small amounts are not necessarily going to cause cancer. It’s just something that is being more tightly regulated in some regions, such as the UK and EU.
Anyway, if it causes that much concern to you, just toss the sachet of lubricant that is supplied and use another lubricant that contains body-safe ingredients 🙂
Mr Bunny and I used the Tenga Egg Twister together, and he really enjoyed the wavy internal texturing of the sleeve, which is shown below:
In the picture, I’ve inverted the sleeve over a dildo so you can see it stretched out along with the pattern of the ridges.
If you want easier cleaning, you can have what is colloquially known as a ‘posh wank,’ by wearing a condom underneath the sleeve.
Tenga Eggs are described as single-use. However, if you look after them you’ll get a few uses before you need to chuck them. Just depends how much you stretch the TPE. This material does get pulled out of shape if you are overly vigorous.
On the plus side, if you don’t like a texture on a particular Tenga Egg, you’ve not spent too much money on a toy that is going to end up at the back of a drawer. The range of designs means you can try other eggs depending on your mood.
Final thoughts and where to buy
Masturbator sleeves are something that Mr Bunny has been a bit tentative about using, as he usually prefers penis-in-vagina sex. As with all things in life, variety really is the spice, so mutual masturbation is an area of intimacy I’d like us to explore more. Judging by his reaction to the Tenga Egg Twister, I think he’ll be keen to try other eggs in the future. The Twister can be selected from the Tenga Classic range, for only £8.99 at Bondara.
