    Beginner's Guide to TENGA Sex Toys

    by Lovehoney

    It's safe to say that masturbation has gone hand-in-hand with Homo sapiens since the dawn of time. But after 200,000 years of palm-on-penis, maybe it's time for a rethink.

    Japanese sex toy company TENGA – established in 2006 Japan by one Mr Matsumoto, a former mechanic – has certainly put a lot of effort into pioneering new ways of giving oneself a hand.

    We here at Lovehoney sell a variety of TENGA products to cater to all needs: the disposable Onacup, the easy-to-use but endlessly exciting Egg, the perfectly textured 3D masturbatorsand the hi-tech Flip Hole. Together, the TENGA arsenal is marketed as 'the future of masturbation'.

    Here's our guide to the revolution in autoeroticism, 200 millennia in the making.

    TENGA Onacups

    TENGA Standard Edition Deep Throat OnacupThe Onacup is the biggest-selling masturbation aid in Japan and the highly textured TENGA Standard Edition Deep Throat Onacup is TENGA's best-seller on Lovehoney.

    The important thing to know about the Onacup is that it's supposed to be used once, and once only. So our advice is to make it last – or use a condom.

    The silicone interior connects with the outside world via a one way-valve and an air hole, creating a virtual vacuum that feels just like oral sex. To create your preferred level of suction, experiment with covering and uncovering the hole.

    It's not by chance they're so popular – Onacups are small wonders of internal design. Sliding inside one of the TENGA Onacups pushes your penis through a thrilling, complexly-paced assault course of tantalising nubs and ripples, and a lotion reservoir at the entrance which keeps everything lubricated.

    For keen sexual expeditionaries, there are multiple versions of the Onacup besides the Standard Edition. You can pick the Double Hole or the Ultra Size.

    TENGA Eggs

    TENGA Egg TwisterThe fairer sex, of course, have had their own love eggs for some time now but men can get in on the action too, using one of nine varieties of TENGA EggWavy, Twister, Silky, Spider, Stepper, Thunder, Misty and Crater.

    Made from stretchy and sensual materials, they're so easy to use. Simply open the egg, pop out the sachet of lubricant, moisten the inside and away you go!

    The first time you crack open your new TENGA Egg, you'll be surprised by how far you can stretch it out of shape – it'll fit pretty much any size of penis. As it is so soft, it will easily stroke and spread over the shaft and head of the penis, conforming to the shape of your hand.

    The six different sleeves offer six subtly different varieties of stimulation. Whether you fancy ridged or silken, noduled or spiderish, there's an egg for you. Our reviewers say the TENGA Egg Silky is the best for replicating oral sex, while the TENGA Egg Wavy is the tightest in the range. The best way, of course, is to try them all out, one by one.

    And they certainly don't involve as much maintenance as other male masturbators – although these Eggs are disposable one-use toys, you can simply run them under a warm tap (hot water will melt them) and pat dry for another go!

    TENGA Flip Hole Masturbator

    TENGA Black Flip Hole MasturbatorIf the original, disposable Onacup is a state-of-the-art one-man jet, the Flip Holes go further, offering masturbation for the space age.

    Western masturbation aids usually have a kinky or cheesy aura about them, but the Japanese jerk off differently. The reusable Flip Hole Masturbators are at the centre of TENGA's now-global operation, and they're not to be taken lightly. They're designed like no other sex toy – with its, minimalist design, and simple three-button operation controlling the internal pressure, it's the sensations that count.

    Rather than attempting to reproduce the look and feel of a vagina, those white-coated boffins from the Land of the Rising Sun have let their imaginations run wild with the futuristic plastic casing.

    The original TENGA Flip Hole Masturbator's interior is an array of ribs, prongs and fronds, all situated to push you on the journey of a lifetime. 6.5 inches in (once you've passed the 'Click Orb', the 'Wing Gate' and the 'Quattro Wave'), and you'll nudge into the all-enveloping 'End Orb', which offers 360 degree stimulation to the head of your penis.

    There's now a TENGA Black Flip Hole Masturbator with an alternative internal design. Employing an extra-tight 'pyramid' design, this is a sequel that really works.

    TENGA 3D Masturbators

    TENGA 3D Spiral Masturbator

    Textured for pleasure and made of super-flexible antibacterial elastomer, the new range of TENGA 3D male masturbators take stokers to the next level.

    With five different varieties, there are plenty of different texture to try. Choose between Spiral, Module, Pile, Zen or Polygon for solo pleasure like you've never experienced before.

    Indulge in the ribbed sensation of Spiral, experiment with the unique grid style of Module or treat yourself to the spiral perfection of Zen. Whichever you choose, just add a squirt of lube and enjoy!

    TENGA Lotion

    TENGA Real Lotion 170mlFor a real posh wank, the right lube is essential. TENGA labs have formulated their own TENGA lubes tailored to their hi-tech equipment. Choose from the three varieties – Mild, Real and Wild.

    TENGA Egg lotion is also available, in a matching egg shaped case that fits in perfectly with your collection.
