RPP 3.0 #25: California Exotics’ Throb Master (RPP #77)

A few weeks ago, PinkCherry.com had one of their insane weekly sales and I found myself buying a few things. I don’t NEED new toys, but when you see a talking masturbator for $5, a silicone prostate massager for $6, and a bullet vibrator that follows the beat of your favorite music for $5, I could not let those pass away without buying some stuff. I will review those toys (and a few other things I got from them) in later posts, but today is about one of the things I bought on that spree: The Throb Master. What the hell is that? Keep reading…

General Description

The Throb Master from California Exotics is a crossover between a begginer’s penis pump (those things that supposedly make your penis larger and stronger) and a simple masturbator with a few rows of jelly sticks. It is a simple toy that promises a tight but gentle session. It is a simple idea. You take a plastic cup and insert a folded inflatable sleeve like the ones used on blood pressure measurement, put a flexible cup inside and finally place a soft jell masturbator. Inflate the blood pressure sleeve and voila! You will get a small toy with customizable tightness and some degree of stimulation.Since it was on sale for just $15, I decided to give it a try, although I was not expecting much from it.


After trying so many sex toys, there is something I should know by now: Never underestimate a toy! I did not have high expectations for this little toy, but it delivered much more than I thought.

Don’t get me wrong – this toy is not an exceptional toy. It feels cheap, is kind of temperamental, and it has too many parts, but it is a decent toy for those people like me that like to build up their orgasms.

As I described earlier, the concept is relatively easy. You have an inflatable wall around a flexible masturbator, allowing you to customize the tightness of the masturbator. Finding the correct tightness for you will be the greatest challenge and the most fun part of using this toy.

Personally, I liked to pump the thing to my comfortable setting, then I stroked SLOWLY, allowing the bristles to caress my penis. After a few minutes, I would release all the air from the sleeve and –  surprise! – the jelly bristles felt much more pronounced. I would stroke slowly with no air pressure on the sleeve for a few minutes, then pumped the thing again and repeated the cycle. After a long, long session, I came one of those draining ejaculations that although not very powerful, leaves you with a deep satisfaction and a big grin on your face.

Cleaning the thing is relatively easy since you only need to take out the soft jelly insert and wash it with mild soap and water. It dries quickly, so it is back to action in no time.

After this, I will never see a blood pressure sleeve the same way!!!

The Throb Master is an interesting toy concept. Unfortunately, the toy feels kind of cheap and it is a really low stimulation toy. If they get a similar concept with a real masturbator and a sturdier case, we could be looking at a revolution. Not at that level, but a cool thing to play if you find it on the clearance section of your favorite store.


For this review, I used Honey Drops as the lube and followed the beat at the Cock Hero videos posted here. A fun way to cum!
