Tenga Zero Flip Hole Reviews – The Best Male Vibrator?

by | March 17, 2018

I only recently discovered that the famous Tenga Flip Hole, which is one of my favourite ever male masturbators, has been upgraded into an electric male vibrator. As I’m quite a fan of the novel sensations that ‘vibrating’ male masturbators give, I’ll probably buy this and give it a try. If I do, I’ll post a proper review, but for now I’ll just look around to see what other trusted sources are saying about it.

The things I liked most about the original Flip Hole was the incredible inner sleeve that was not only one of the most intricatly nubbed and ridged of any masturbator, but the pressure of it on the penis could be controlled by several buttons on the side of the case. And not simply the pressure, but through the use of vacuum pressure controlled by the buttons, a variety of sensations could be produced including a ‘sucking’ feeling.

On top of it being one of the most enjoyable and sophisticated masturbators, it was also the most hygenic and easiest to clean. The flip open case meant that the sleeve was easy to wash, and also could easily be stood up after washing with the case open to allow for it to be dried.

Well all these features seem to have been retained in the vibrating version. As well as that, the shape and size has been modified a little, with an attractive curved top, and a little smaller and apparently portable. But what do male sex toy fans who have actually tried it think? Ten people have so far reviewed it at LoveHoney, only one at the American site, but he seems very impressed, giving a detailed review topped by four stars out of five, only witholding the fifth star because his large 8″ manhood was a bit big to enjoy those delicious vacuum pressure features. He does also note that it is quite noisy.

Sliding the U lock off allows you to open the toy to check the very soft and flexible internal shaft of the toy. A vibrating unit is housed so that it will stimulate the head of your penis, another is positioned to stimulate the outside shaft at the base of your penis. The vibrations are incredibly strong and there are 5 modes to play around with. Because the vibes are so strong, this toy is also really noisy. I craved some banging background tunes to stop myself from focusing on them!

To prep the toy you simply slide the U lock off, open the Tenga up lengthways like a book, squirt lube along the inside, close the toy and re-apply the U lock. Takes about 30 seconds. Alternatively, you can just cover your penis in a generous dollop of lube all over and dive in!

Sliding into the Tenga is a really nice, intense sensation. All of the waves, knobbles, twists and pressure points feel amazing even without the vibrations. Press the button on the U lock of the toy for 2 seconds and the vibes kick in to add even more depth and you can feel your entire penis and scrotum vibrate.

There are 2 external oval side buttons that are designed for you to press, expelling air from a valve to create a greater vacuum. Unfortunately, these didn’t really work for me as I totally filled the toy but the vacuum created by just filling it was really noticeable during play.

While you’re using the toy you can also see your penis thrusting in and out of it, filling it up. I suspect that Mrs Pheebs would have got more out of seeing this than I was. Next time I’ll invite her along!

The orgasm the Tenga helped me with was really intense. I only needed to masturbate to the point of climax and the toy kept me squirming and spasming for 30 seconds afterwards. Cum dribbled out from around the U lock because the toy was so full so yeah this toy really does work!

And cleaning it? So simple, under a cold tap with some toy cleaner with the U lock off. Dry it open then pop it away for the next sesh!

Eight out of nine British LoveHoney customers gave it five stars. Here is one of their reviews :

Over the last couple of months, I have used several different toys including a Fleshlight and other generic masturbaters. This is the most realistic toy by far and without a doubt the best I have ever used.

Using the real feel lubricant provided I have never experienced a feeling like it. I found the best sensation only inserting the head into the toy to simulate oral sex. This is very like the real thing and something I have never experienced from other toys. You can feel every inch of this product from the pleasure ball at the end to the tongue-like nodules half way up.

Accompanied with its ease of cleaning and storage I cannot fault this product at all. Don’t be put off by the price. it is worth every penny! Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

At Amazon there are 50 reviews, with just under half giving it the full five stars and only 12% rating it one star (usually because they had an unfortunate experience with it, such as the vibe stopping working or the sleeve breaking – remember, there is a bias for very unhappy customers to leave a review, so only 12% unhappy is quite an impressively low figure for a relatively expensive sex toy). Most of the customers who do fail to give it five stars do so not so much for their very favourable experience of the toy, but because of its price.

At the popular Sex Toys subreddit, an experienced male sex toy user gives it a solid A, although he does mention that he encountered a problem with lube leaking out of the top :

I’ve been a fan of Tenga for a while now. First I had the 3D Spiral which was pretty good. I tried the eggs and the cup, but I didn’t really care for those. Then I got the Flip Hole White and holy mother of god is that thing fantastic. So as soon as I heard about the Flip 0, I knew I had to try it.

I ordered it off Amazon, and it arrived in a generic Amazon brown box. Aesthetically, I love the futuristic look. It comes in a hard plastic storage shell with two sachets of their “Real” lotion, which is rather thick and sticky. I prefer slicker lubes. I put some “Real” and KY Ultragel together in the toy and gave it a whirl… It’s just amazing. Incredibly intense sensations. It has the Tenga trademark “squeeze plate” so you can control where the most intensity is delivered. I like to start without squeezing it at all because once I put the squeeze on I won’t last much longer.

One of the main differences of the Zero vs the Flip Hole is that the zero is hinged at the bottom, which lets the insertion point be a solid unbroken piece.(See the video above for details.) The old model was hinged at the top, so when you put it back together, the insertion end has a seam in it. This allows lube to leak out of the bottom, all over you. Kinda gross. With the Zero, this is not an issue. However, because of the design, it means there is a seam on the top end. You put a plastic clip over that end, but I’ve found that lube leaks a bit out of the top. If you use it standing up or sitting so that the toy is pointing up it’s probably less of an issue, but I like to use it lying down. Best solution I’ve found is to put a small piece of paper towel over the seam before putting the clip on, then wrapping the top end in a regular hand towel. Sounds kind of clunky but it’s not bad and the overall experience is easily worth the effort.

Clean up is a breeze. Run it under cold water, use a mild soap, put it on its stand to dry. When it’s time to put it away, I like to pat it dry with a paper towel to get anything that didn’t evaporate. It’s made out of the same material as the Flip Hole so with proper maintenance it should last for a long time.

I give the Zero a solid “A”. It will be my go-to toy for a long time to come. (Pun intended.)

Well if my budget allows I’m definitely going to buy this in the next few weeks and hopefully it will become one of my masturbators of choice for the summer. Hopefully I’m going to get laid a lot, but on those days that I don’t and I have blue balls from checking out all the hot asses on display in the summer streets, I’ll just pop home and console myself with this. I will, of course, write an in depth review myself, but in the meantime, here’s a video where you can take a closer look at it.
