Back in October, I reviewed the Tenga Flip Hole Black – one of the most stylish sex toys in the market. Today, its sister Tenga Flip Hole White get the same treatment.
Like the Black version, the Tenga Flip Hole White (FHW) doesn’t like a sex toy at all. In fact, the FHW looks more as an accessory for your iPod or, if you have a Mac, like any of its accessories. Like the FHB, it has no vaginal entrance, no decals, nothing shouting “pervert” aloud like other sex toys. Again, you can leave the Flip Hole in plain sight and while it will make some people curious, most people will believe you if you tell them it is part of your electronic gadgetry collection.
Unlike the Black, the FHW internal structures are rounder and even feel softer to the touch. Compared to the Black, the FHW is a lot less intimidating when you open the clam design. That said, lets go to the review…
Intensity (5 / 5)
The FHW looks less intimidating than the FHB, but still looks intense – and as the FHB, it delivers. You feel the texture immediately, slightly rough at first, but once the lube begins to work, the material seems to melt around your penis. You better be ready for many different sensations, all of them good. It is less intense than the FHB at first, but pleasure builds fast after a few strokes, requiring some restrain from you if you want the session to last a few minutes. As with the FHB, rotating the FHW provides different types of sensations depending on what part of your penis is more sensitive. Orgasms are intense, specially if you had been stroking slowly, keeping the pace to a minimum.
Lets repeat what I wrote about the FHB:
The FHB entrance is tight – really tight. With a mere 4.5 inches girth I had some problems entering this toy and looking at the entrance while doing it, I was often afraid the whole thing was going to rip apart. Once inside it felt just right.
For those who likes suction / extra tightness, the FHB has the now famous three suction discs that allow the user to vary the tightness at either the base, the shaft or the head areas with one hand. Personally, since I liked the regular suction of the toy, I didn’t use these discs. Anyhow, it’s good to know they are there…
Change FHW for FHB, and you got my review for the White.
Although the FHW is not designed to simulate any type of real sex, it can feel at times like a hard blowjob. You need to work around the lube quantity and the air suction levels, but once you obtain them, the reward is adequate.
Like the FHB, the FHW worked really well in the hands free sessions, something I didn’t expect because it was designed more for stroking. Stroking provides a sharper, more intense session while the hands free method provided slightly longer sessions with a better orgasm build. Since this toy is full of textures, any single variation in angle or position made the FHW a new experience during the sessions making this toy an extremely versatile one.
Lubricant use (5/5)
Once lubed, the FHW didn’t require any extra lube or re-wetting. Perfect score in this category.
Again, the FHs have two flaws in this category: setup and noise. Due to its clamshell design, the base has a triple duty as base, lock and drying stand. After lubing it, you need to slide the base in the opposite to lock both halves in position. Doing this while hard and wanting to do it fast so could fuck the toy is almost a torture because I missed the positioning so many times that it was frustrating. Often I was almost limp again after struggling to place the damn thing in place.
The other flaw (from my perspective) is the slurping and farting noises this toy makes while using it. Slurping noises add a little bit to the excitement given that you don’t have a roommate or paper thin walls on your room. The farting noises are a totally different issue. I found them to be distracting and even annoying. At least, the noise is almost non noticeable during hands free sessions, but really distracting during stroking sessions.
Hygiene (4 / 5)
One of the major selling points of the FH series is that they are supposed easy to clean. Well, I prefer cleaning a Fleshlight over cleaning the FHB and FHW. Regardless of the Fleshlight design, they are pretty easy to clean – just open a faucet with cold or warm water and allow the running water to flush the interior. With the FH series, you open the toy, put it under the faucet… and run your fingers through it to clean your spunk. The FHW is easier to clean than the FHB thanks to its rounded structures, but still semen stays trapped between them – specially the ending orbs. Running water alone can’t clean it effectively, so I ended doing some scrubbing with my fingers to remove all the semen from it. With 95% of my Fleshies I don’t have to scoop my fluids – a big plus.
The FH series design allows for fast and easy drying. Surprisingly, the material dries pretty quickly considering the maze of structures inside it. The only drawback is that while cleaning some water can get trapped between the silicone and the plastic case, requiring the user to be careful before storing to avoid mold.
Maintenance (5 / 5)
No special maintenance required so far.
Tear and wear (4/5)
When you use a brand new FH, you will notice some tear at the entrance. Since I had the FHW since last summer, I worry more about wear now than tearing (the FH series is designed to be enjoyable for around 50 sessions, although many users have squeezed three and even four times more sessions). After the 5 use run, I found some minor tears on the entrance and some wear on the discs areas, but no major effect noticed on the experience.
Total score: 43 / 50
All aspects considered, the FHW is a good toy investment given that your penis is not too thick. If you have a girth above 5.5 inches, prepare for a tight ride and some major wear and tear on the toy’s entrance and body.
TENGA products are available at various resellers, but I would recommend to buy your Japanese toys from Toy Demon. I buy my Asian toys from them and their service is excellent.
FYI: The visual stimuli for these sessions was provided by some Japanese bondage films I have in my ever growing porn collection.
