Unlike other Tenga products which are one-time-use-only masturbation sleeves the Flip Hole is designed to be reusable and easily cleaned. It is named, obviously, after how you clean it, by flipping it open to get at the sleeve inside.
The design of the Flip Hole is really quite brilliant. It’s basically split into two pieces: the main compartment made of plastic on the outside and thermoplastic rubber based silicone on the inside which is split in half so it can be opened and cleaned; and the outer U-shaped compartment that has grooves on either side which the main compartment slides into. The outer compartment can either be used to cover up the opening while storing, to hold the two hinged halves of the main compartment together, or as a stand for the main compartment while it is air drying.
The TPR Silicone can get tacky after cleaning and a light dusting of corn starch helps it along immensely. TPR Silicone is phthalate free but it is porous, so it can harbor bacteria. No sharing the toy without a condom.
The Flip Hole also comes with three lubricants, though they call them lotions: Real, Mild, and Wild. They are all fairly thick water-based lubricants. Onyx says he was unable to discern any real difference between the three during use, though Wild has a minty flavor to it. I’m not really sure how Real is supposed to be “realistic” feeling or how Mild is mild, but they’re supposed to be different somehow. Overall Onyx prefers to ignore the “lotions” included and use Sliquid H2O instead.
Onyx says that the sensation while using it is quite enjoyable and comparable to the other Tenga products. The Flip Hole is bulky, however, much bulkier than the other two disposable Tenga sleeves he’s tried, and because of that he liked it less than he thought he would. The circles on the front and back of the Flip Hole are made to rest your fingers on while using and you are able to adjust the suction and tightness of the sleeve by squeezing or loosening your grip, but this is not nearly as efficient or easy to use as the Squeeze Play.
As you can see in the image above, there is a lot going on inside of the Flip Hole, especially comparatively to the other disposable Tenga sleeves. Unfortunately, he says, despite the fancier insides it doesn’t really feel any better or worse than the others he has tried, it basically feels exactly the same.
The big upside of the Flip Hole is that it is reusable, it’s easy to clean, and if you take care of it you can have it for quite some time. Unfortunately Onyx says it’s just not as comfortable or easy to use as the disposable Tenga sleeves due to it’s bulky size.
Name: Flip Hole
Type: Jack Off Toy.
Material: ABS Plastic (outside) and TPR Silicone (inside).
Dimensions: 7 inches x 3 inches (diameter).
Lube: Water-based only, since it is a silicone blend there is the possibility that silicone-based lube will break down the chemical makeup of the toy and ruin it. Best to steer clear of it just in case.
Care and Feeding: See third image of the post. Open Flip Hole. Wash with soap and water or use an antibacterial toy cleaner. Allow to air dry on the outer compartment, or you can pat dry with a clean towel if you’re really impatient. If TPR Silicone is tacky to the touch give it a light dusting of corn starch. Store until you’re ready to use again.
