For this toy – I actually acted totally alone.  I may have given a member of the clitoris brigade the option to try this on me – but I was indeed encouraged to use it on myself.  Good – alone time.  With a masturbator.  For science.

The Tenga Deep Throat Cup is masturbation sleeve for penises , that comes pre-lubed, has a “hole cap” to keep the lube inside (I imagine), and has an air hole at the top.  The purpose of the air hole is to let air escape while inserting, then when covered with your finger – gives a suction feel to the toy.

Unwrapping

The toy comes shrink wrapped like it belongs in the food isle.  Not an inherent problem, just a little cognitive dissonance when you are about to penetrate something, and it seems a bit like a Pringles can.  There is a small sticker at the top that covers the air hole – and the sticker itself has instructions for “more suction” and “less suction” that are pretty clear.  This air hole is one of the better features of the toy.

Pre-Lube?

OK – more on this later, but everything about this toy being ‘disposable’ gets me a little bit soft.  I personally didn’t like the idea of this being pre-lubricated.  I don’t know what kind of lube is in there, and I don’t want someone in a sleeve factory lubing my toy for me.  I’m sure that turns someone on, but not me.

The Sponge Thing

OK – what the hell is this in there for?  I imagine this spongy white thing holds the pre-lube during shipping, but I didn’t see any instructions to find this and take it out.  And….  And…..  It is really uncomfortable!  I thought this toy was really poorly designed until I figured out this thing was in there and I needed to remove it.  Do yourself a favor and find the sponge thing – and take it out first.

It actually feels good

Coming clean here – this is my first sleeve.  I know I know, why did it take me so long? I don’t know, but the truth is this is the first thing i have used in this toy category.  Indeed I am going to get more and use more based on this experience.  It is nice.  If feels – soft and squashy and pleasant.  What more do you need?

The Zombie Problem

Like many toys – the problem is that the thing it is trying to emulate (the inside of a vagina) is warm, and toys generally are at room temperature, not body temperature.  So – it feels like fucking a zombie (I imagine).  Now, Tenga has these helpful warming strips that are intended to be put in warm water – inserted into the Deep Throat Cup – and instantly turn the zombie vagina into live vagina temperature.  I did not use one, but I do like the thought of the warmer toy.  It might be a bit of a drag to do all that preparation, but worth it if you want that warm feel I think.

Disposable Toys?

The Tenga Deep Throat Cup is marketed as a disposable toy.  I was told it could have “maybe 10 uses.”  I guess that is if you don’t finish inside the toy (porn star style?) or you figure out how to clean it with a bottle brush or something.  I used it 4 times and that felt enough to me.  But seriously – do we want disposable toys?  I don’t need my wanker to get a couple of uses then go into a landfill.  I also want more thought and manufacturing effort to go into my toy that goes around something I care about.  And then -there is the issue that it ‘feels’ cheap.  The harder plastic shell is well shaped to hold it (good design!) but it is still disposable plastic; and it feels like you are holding disposable plastic.

-Planned follow up-

None, but I do plan on investing in another sleeve of some kind.  One that is more durable and cleanable.  I will say – this was a very good test – and a great gateway into the world of sleeves.
