Review: Tenga Egg Easy Beat Hard Boiled Masturbation Pack

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation PackWhen ManShop got in touch and offered my partner a review product, he jumped at the chance. He doesn’t have many sex toys that are strictly “his” as he tends to use a lot of bullet vibrators and wands that we both share. His collection of strokers and such is quite limited so when he saw that Tenga’s Easy Beat Hard Boiled Masturbation Pack was up for grabs it seemed like the perfect option for him. He had tried the Lovers Egg Masturbation Pack previously and loved those experiences so he was really looking forward to putting six different textured eggs through the ringer.

Before we get into the products and his thoughts, I want to introduce ManShop properly. They are an online shop and website that focus on educating men and couples on the sexual health benefits of using sex toys. Great, right? But there’s more. They noticed that there are tons of resources out there directed at a female audience that explain how to use sex toys and how they can improve their solo sessions and sex life with their partner(s) but the male equivalents were few and far between. So ManShop set up in the hopes of helping to dispel the notion that sex toys are gender bias and offer up a safe place for educational sources for penis owning people to check out and learn new things. Hopefully demolishing some of the stigma regarding “men’s toys” in the process.

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation PackThe Easy Beat Masturbation Pack arrived in a plastic packet that resembles regular egg packaging. It’s a cute touch from Tenga and we liked it. It’s sealed securely and houses six different eggs. Each egg has its own outer wrapping that shows a sample illustration of the texture inside and they all have different colour schemes too.

So the six eggs that feature in this particular Hard Boiled Pack are Misty, Crater, Thunder, Shiny, Cloudy and Surfer. My partner really enjoyed three of them, thought one was alright and the other two didn’t seem to suit him well. Find out which received his seal of approval a little later.

Tenga’s masturbators are made from TPE, which is probably the least offensive material that they could have chosen out of all the porous options on the market. Some manufacturers have started making silicone options in the last couple of years, but unless fantasy themes and animal orifices are your thing, then these are still few and far between. I don’t think silicone masturbators have as much stretch or give to them which is the main reason it wouldn’t work on a stroker like this. It does set our minds at rest knowing that brands like Tenga and Fleshlight/Fleshjack care for safety and are known for making their products non-toxic. You won’t find latex or phthalates in their products. It also helps that these eggs are designed to be disposable and thrown out after a couple of uses.

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation PackHow are they used? You open the wrapping from the bottom to reveal a white plastic egg. The outer casing then pops open to reveal the textured sleeve inside. There’s an inserted applicator inside the sleeve that contains a sachet of personal lubricant and holds the shape whilst it’s packed away. Remove the insert and pour the contents of the sachet into the egg. This can be messy on the first attempt but once it’s been done a couple of times it gets easier and it just clicks – like tying your laces for the first time as a kid, but with a sexy, sticky twist.

My partner then decides if he wants to use the toy together or whether he wants to use it alone. Regardless of who is in control of the egg, the application is the same. Pinch the tip of the stroker whilst it’s being placed on the penis (as you’d do with a condom) and roll it down over the head. My partner has not been circumcised so he found that pulling his foreskin back slightly to reveal his glans produced the best results. It was somewhat uncomfortable if he didn’t pull his skin back first. He can then glide the egg up and down his shaft following the motions he’d do to himself whilst masturbating. He feels that these eggs are a textured extension of the hand rather than toys designed to create a completely different sensation. These have been great to have on hand to change-up his masturbation techniques and prevent the return of death grip syndrome.

If he wants me to control the motions and speed, then I’ll have him place one over his head comfortably and then twist up and down his shaft in a circular motion. This technique rubs over his coronal ridge with each twist and feels wonderful for him. He found this to be most successful with the more textured strokers in this pack and I also noticed that his reactions were stronger with the harsher textures. The only negative thing that could be said about this style of toy is the noise it makes. If the sound of squelching from the combination of the lube/material/motions is annoying to you then these may not be a great choice.

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation Pack MistyNow let’s get into the individual options. The first one he tried was Misty. This one has some gently raised nodules across the sleeve which my partner said would have felt great if they had been defined better. It wasn’t intense enough for him overall so didn’t add much to a session. This could be a design that is best suited to people with sensitive penises that don’t like the bigger textured styles. It could also work for those who orgasm quite quickly/easily. My partner takes his time to climax and this one just didn’t help him get to that point.

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation Pack CraterNext up was Crater. In sheer contrast to the first egg that he tried, effort number two was very well received. The Crater has a selection of nodules spread across its soft surface made up of varying sizes and stages of definition. It has some larger nodules that my partner was especially fond of. He did mention that he needed to add more lubricant into this egg as the texture seeps to hoard/catch some of the fluid he’d originally added but aside from that, he had no issues orgasming with this one. It was his second favourite of the bunch and he’d happily use this again.

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation Pack ThunderThen came Thunder. My partner and I thought flash or bolt would have been more appropriate names for this egg as that is exactly what the inner shapes resemble. Bolts of equally spaced lightning surround this stroker. He liked the feel of these whilst twisting the egg but didn’t get much from the texture whilst using his regular method of stroking up and down. He didn’t think it was as intense as the Crater so it would be a good choice for someone who’s never used a Tenga Egg or sex toy before. He would give this one another go.

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation Pack ShinyShiny was up next and it proved to be an instant hit. It made him climax much faster than any of the others did and ultimately became his favourite. I think this is one we’ll be needing to stock up on. He even liked it more than the Lovers, which neither of us were expecting. If I had to try and describe the texture of this one it would be like a replication of the sun, it has the textured beams coming from a spiral nodule that’s raised in the center. After seeing his reaction to this one I was sort of jealous that I don’t have a penis.

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation Pack CloudyCloudy was the fifth egg he tried and it was unfortunately a bit of a disappointment for him. It has a cloudy lined pattern inside which isn’t at all raised or defined which means it didn’t add any extra sensation for him whatsoever. Maybe he has a stubborn penis that needs more stimulation than this texture can offer. For this reason he probably would not use this one again. I however can make use from it. If I place it over the head of a wand whilst using it clitorally the added texture feels better than the smooth plastic.

Tenga Easy Beat Masturbation Pack SurferLast but not least, there was Surfer. Looking at the texture of this one I expected him to have a similar reaction to the Cloudy/Misty but what makes this one better suited to him than those designs are the little nodules between the waves. It adds that extra something that they don’t have. The waves also are quite precise which means he can actually feel them as he strokes the egg up and down. It’s not his favourite of the pack, but he did enjoy using it and would probably go for this one again.

Overall, my partner and I think that this Masturbation Pack from Tenga would be a perfect introduction to sex toys for people who have a penis. Tenga Eggs are non-intimidating, easy to use and stretch to accommodate a variety of sizes. The varieties of textures can help you to understand what works for your body and what doesn’t. My partner discovered that the more texture there is, the better the stroker works for him, but that doesn’t mean this will be the case for everyone. If you or your partner are looking to experiment with toys for the first time then this would be a great starting point. It would also make a fantastic stocking filler come Christmas!

Review: Lovehoney Hummer Deluxe Wand Attachment

We haven’t tried many wand attachments. In fact, I think the only ones we had tried prior to the arrival of Lovehoney’s new Hummer Deluxe Wand Attachment were the three that were designed to be used with the O-Wand. The O-Gasm was the model designed for penis owners and it seemed to work very well for my partner. We didn’t have anything to compare to that attachment until now but I have to say that we struggled to compare these two. Mostly because the two materials used are so different and this makes the sensations feel distinctly fresh. I have seen a lot of similar products on the market to the Hummer so I don’t know whether Lovehoney’s is any better or worse than those, but I do know that I should have ordered my partner one years ago as he flippin’ loves it.

Lovehoney Hummer Deluxe Magic Wand AttachmentIt comes in the standard packaging that we’ve come to know and love for Lovehoney’s own-brand products. It’s simplistic and minimal in design. A white box with blue lettering and a clear product shot on the front. Inside, the Hummer can be found within some plastic wrap. It doesn’t come with any storage, so do be sure to pick up some sort of storage pouch if purchasing as this material should not be stored touching other toys or materials.

Y’all know that I am only here for body-safe products but it seems to be difficult to find silicone masturbators that aren’t realistic. My partner and I make the exception for external toys that are used on him and will use sex toys that are made from TPE. It is porous so it can never be properly cleaned and should be checked regularly for mold spots or material changes. It should be discarded and replaced at least once a year, maybe even more frequently if used often. We do rinse it with water and toy cleaner as best as we can after each use and leave to air dry for as long as required.

I was half expecting an odour upon removing the Hummer from the plastic, but neither he or I could pick up on anything. Materials like this generally have some sort of scent, although it’s not as unpleasant as PVC or Jelly, but we seemed to avoid that hurdle on this occasion. This was great news for both of us as an unpleasant odour would have certainly put us off wanting to use it. It did meet my expectations in all other areas such as stretchiness and quality though. There is some give to this squishy material, but water-based lubricant is an absolute must have.

Adding a slick coating of Lovehoney’s Enjoy Lube to himself and the sleeve, my partner placed the Hummer on top of our gorgeous new Lovehoney Deluxe Magic Wand and guided himself inside the sleeve. He is slightly above average in the girth department so it was definitely a learning experience in regards to how much lubricant was required to get him inside comfortably. Once we had figured out a suitable amount for him, getting his penis in and out of the sleeve was quick, painless and friction free.

I started the vibrations on low and asked him how he’d like to use the attachment. After all, this experience was all about his needs and preferences. He decided that he should take control of the wand first and move it back and forth gently to massage his penis and get a feel for the textured sleeve. He said that the ridged end felt better for him than the noduled side, so he entered from this side on each further test run. He liked that the ridges made contact with the sensitive areas such as the underside of his penis head. The vibrations, even on low intensity, made the texture feel more intense apparently and the combination of the two was definitely successful in extracting orgasms from him.

Later, he wanted to try it with me in control of the wand. I turned the vibrations up to max and held the wand in place. He claimed that this felt fantastic and I could see that for myself from the squirming that occurred. It was his preferred method of using the attachment when a quick release was on his mind. He did mention that it could be too intense for those with a super sensitive penis, but for him, it was good. He liked that this method was hands free as this allowed him to either stimulate his nipples or touch me, which are both great sources of extra stimulation for him.

Overall, I cannot believe that it has taken us this long to try a stretchy penis attachment for a wand. I was caught up in the safe silicone of the O-Gasm attachment so never considered something like this, but I’m glad my partner put himself forward to review it as it actually worked wonders for him. His final thoughts were that this felt good for him regardless of how it was used and he’d be happy to recommend it to other penis owning peeps out there. The only downsides for him were the squelching noises it makes (not dissimilar to the sound of a Tenga egg) and the fact that it won’t last forever like his silicone one will.

Review: Tenga Egg Lovers Valentines Pack

It’s not often that I win things but I got lucky in more than one way this past Feb 14th. Tenga set a Twitter giveaway to win one of their Lovers Valentines Packs and I happened to be one of the chosen ones on this occasion. My partner had not tried any sort of masturbation toy outside of vibrators at this point, but he has registered interest in trying some Tenga products, so we were both really pleased to have won. I was particularly happy as I’d read a lot of reviews for this lovers heart texture egg and we were to be in possession of five.

Tenga Egg Lovers Valentines PackThe pack arrived in a brown patterned box with the product name on the front. There was no directions for use or anything like that on the box but these toys are pretty self-explanatory I think. There were five eggs inside the box, all of which have the Lovers texture. The wrapping for each egg was different to the regular presentation of this particular product and I thought a couple of them were very striking. I liked the red lips pattern and the love you text pattern. Both are perfect for a romantic occasion and I’d love to see them return next year.

Tenga’s masturbators are made from TPE, which is probably the least offensive material that they could choose outside of silicone. I’d obviously prefer silicone, but as these are for external use only, we don’t mind too much. I don’t think silicone masturbators have as much stretch, nor are they so versatile, which makes TPE the only real option to use. It does set our minds at rest knowing that Tenga is a trusted brand within this industry and they are known for making their products non-toxic. These eggs are still porous so are not completely body safe but as they are designed to be thrown away after a couple of uses, this isn’t too concerning for us.

Tenga Egg Lovers Valentines PackTo use, open the wrapping from the bottom as directed to reveal a brown plastic egg. This outer casing then pops open to reveal the textured sleeve inside. There’s an insert inside the toy containing a sachet of lubricant and I assume this also holds the eggs shape as it’s packaged away. Remove the insert and pour the contents of the sachet into the egg. It can be a bit messy on the first attempt, but once you’ve done it a couple of times it becomes second nature, kinda like riding a bike, but sexier.

So, how are these used? Well, he pinches the tip of the stroker as he places it on his penis (as he would do with a condom) and then rolls it down over his head. My partner is uncut so he found that best results for comfort and sensation were achieved when he pulled his foreskin back a little bit to reveal his very sensitive glans. He then glides it up and down his shaft, following the motions that he’d do to himself when having a wank. He said that the texture was pleasurable and got him to an orgasm faster than usual. We enjoyed having these on hand to change-up his masturbation techniques and prevent him falling back into his death grip style of jerking off.

Tenga Egg Lovers Valentines PackI have also used these on him by placing one over the head and twisting it up and down the shaft in a circular motion. He said that this technique rubs over his coronal ridge with each twist and feels fantastic. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him squirm quite like this. It was very hot for me to watch and it certainly made giving a handjob more interesting for the both of us. The only negative thing I can think of is the squelching noise it makes because of the lube/material/speed combination.

We also tried one of these eggs for another purpose. I had seen another blogger, although the name has slipped my mind at the time of writing, who used one of these sleeves over the head of a magic wand. I thought this was a brilliant idea and simply had to test it out for myself. I found a wand with a plastic head as I didn’t want any of my silicone wands to be potentially damaged by the TPE and placed it over the top. I turned on the vibrations and pressed the textured sleeve up against my clitoris. The heart-shaped nubs rubbed against that sweet spot as the vibrations got to work and this made for a very unique, pleasurable experience. I’m not sure I’d be able to tell the differences between textures with this method, but I will probably try it again and see.

Tenga Egg Lovers Valentines PackOverall, I think the Tenga Egg Lovers Valentines Pack was an absolute blessing to our sex life. These eggs were one of the first toys that my partner tried and he will definitely want to get some more of these for our toybox. I think he is very interested in trying some other textures soon, so I’m thinking Stepper or Thunder may be the next best thing. Tenga Eggs are great for on the go use/travelling as they are small, discreet and come with their own lube.

Review: Sqweel XT

Sqweel XTI purchased a Valentine’s Bundle for my partner this year and the Sqweel XT happened to be part of it. He is new to using sex toys that are specifically focused at those who own a penis as he’s used to universal toys such as bullets and wand vibrators, but this has opened his eyes to trying more toys outside of his comfort zone in the future.

I had personally read multiple reviews of this product beforehand and noted that they were rather conflicting. Some people loved it, some people loathed it, and others just couldn’t decide. I wanted my partner to go in with a completely open mind, so I kept what I’d read to myself and let him figure it out with no preconceptions.

It arrived in a simplistic blue and white box with some product information featured on the sides. The front and back of the box were clear, so the toy was viewable from the outset in display case fashion. I quite liked it, but it’s not particularly special. Inside the box we found the product alongside an instruction manual, charging cable and a second set of turbo tongues, which we now know to be the firm set.

Sqweel XT

My partner was fairly impressed with the appearance of this product, although he did mention that he’d never seen anything remotely like it before. His first comment was along the lines of it looking nothing like other oral sex toys on the market and how he thought it could easily be mistaken as a hand-held fan or some other electrical gadget by someone who has never heard of it.

He describes the Sqweel XT as lightweight, comfortable to hold and easy to use. He liked the button placement too, although he said that he’d prefer it if they stood out from each other more so he could tell the difference between them without looking at them. He could not find any other gripes with the build quality or design and loved the fact that it’s completely waterproof. I like this too as it means I can use it on him when he’s in the bath or shower and clean it easily once he’s finished with it. Soap and water is all that’s required as its made from body-safe materials.

In regards to charging, that’s really simple. Just place the jack into the base of the toy and the USB into a port and you’re good to go. A blue light will shine from the port whilst the charge is taking place. It takes roughly two hours for a complete charge and this gives around an hour of use, which is setting dependent as I expected. My partner was reasonably happy with this ratio, although he did mention that this means he only gets two uses per charge as he needs to use it for 20-30 minutes each time.

Sqweel XTThe control panel is easy to understand as there are only two buttons to master. Pressing and holding down either button for a few seconds will start/stop the Sqweel and pressing both simultaneously will activate/deactivate the travel lock feature. If you wish to change the function, press the forwards arrow until you reach the option you desire and press the backwards button if you accidentally miss it or just want to go back.

It has three speeds and three patterns to explore, but my partner hasn’t really entertained the patterns. He’s becoming quite like me in the sense that constant sensation and pressure is what works for him and stop-and-start functions are more off-putting than pleasure building. He liked the constant speeds, but I think he’s in agreement with other reviewers who’ve stated that more power is needed. I was quite surprised when he said he needed more from this as he’s not usually one for super strength and he’s not a power queen, but when I had a feel for myself, I could totally see where he was coming from.

He told me that he couldn’t feel much, if anything, with the softer turbo tongues, so he switched to the firmer wheel in the hopes of better stimulation. It was easy to change between the two wheels and he liked the fact that he could put the tongues in reverse when swapping them out to add to a different sensation. Whilst he thought that the firmer wheel was an improvement, a third firmness wheel wouldn’t have gone amiss. He seems to need very rigid pressure in order to reach a climax, so a wheel of more stubborn tongues would have been appreciated by him.

Sqweel XT

As it stands at the moment, he hasn’t orgasmed from use of the XT. He describes the sensations it provides as pleasurable, but not orgasm inducing. He thinks that it is a great teasing toy, but nothing more. He doesn’t have any experience with this kind of toy, so he can’t pinpoint exactly what the problem is but he did locate a couple of areas where improvement could be made. The power and a firmer wheel being the main two. It might be a combination of the two or it might be that this type of stimulation isn’t right for him, but time will tell.

In terms of noise, I don’t think the Sqweel XT is louder than any of my vibrators. It makes some noise due to the mechanisms, but I wouldn’t class it as loud. A closed bedroom door and a sprinkling of background music or TV is more than enough to cover the sounds it makes anyway.

Overall, my partner was glad that he received a male bundle and that this was part of it. It has been a huge stepping stone in making him understand that he doesn’t have to be wary of stigmas surrounding “male” sex toys and they are not all realistic or porous. He said that he would be happy to give an updated version a chance if the power was increased and the wheel had some additional firmness, but for now, it’s going to be used for teasing and the focus isn’t going to be on orgasms, but rather their denial.
