Remember when all you had to masturbate was your hand? While effective, it’s a lot nicer knowing you have plenty of male masturbatory options out there. While there are many brands, if you want something easy to use that is also highly effective, we suggest the TENGA 3D. Built out of durable silicone, this toy is incredibly easy to use but really enhances your solo experience.
In our TENGA 3D review, we’ll focus on the Spiral version, explain how it functions, how it feels, and what sort of cleaning is involved. We’ll also let you know important specifications about the toy and a few tips on how to use it. Buckle in because you’re going to be racing to purchase the TENGA 3D when you’ve finished reading this.
There are many amazing features to discuss about the TENGA 3D. Not only is this male masturbator small and discreet, but it offers different designs to choose from. Let’s dive into what makes this a toy worth having.
One of the best parts of the TENGA 3D is that it is incredibly easy to use. Simply insert your penis into the hole of the TENGA. Then, using your hands, twist and move the sleeve in whatever manner excites you.
There are no batteries to worry about, no settings to figure out.
When you receive your TENGA 3D, you will see a gorgeous spiral pattern. However, this is actually the inside of the toy. While it is a simple process, don’t forget to invert the toy so that the texture is on the inside and the outside is a smooth surface.
Also, when using the TENGA 3D, don’t forget your lube. While more expensive, technologically advanced male masturbators have proprietary material that mimics the inside of a vagina, the TENGA 3D is more basic. Lube is incredibly important for the best experience. It’s recommended to squeeze some into the inside. Test it out, and if you need more, don’t be afraid to use more.
There are actually five different designs for the Tenga 3D and all of them come in amazing geometric patterns. The main toy, The Spiral, has a ribbed design that spirals upwards.
There is also the Module design, which has small cubes with different depths and the Zen which has small ridges in a more subtle spiral shape. The Polygon is a mismatch of shapes and the Pile has triangle cutouts.
While the Tenga 3D looks gorgeous on the inside, outside you will find a simple, smooth exterior. It is curved slightly so you can grip it well, and both the inside and outside are a stark, modern white color. We love it when beauty and function come together.
To put it bluntly, the TENGA 3D feels amazing. The elastomer material contracts to accommodate what is placed inside of the sleeve. Therefore you get a snug feeling that will wrap your entire member with no air pockets.
Because you can choose from five different texture patterns, including the ever-popular TENGA 3D Spiral, you can choose exactly what kind of feeling you get. The Spiral is pretty intense so if you want something a bit more low-key, we suggest the TENGA 3D Zen.
Since the TENGA 3D is a masturbation sleeve, it’s very important to have measurements that will accommodate your length and girth. For length, you will find it stretches to a generous 9.8 inches. This should be more than plenty to accommodate the average man.
As for width, the measurement can be a bit misleading. Technically, the width of the TENGA 3D is only 0.5 inches. However, the material on the inside is very stretchy and will accommodate just about all penis sizes. In fact, the original tightness of the sleeve means the material will form perfectly to your member, creating an intense feeling. The TENGA 3D will stretch to a maximum of 3.15 inches.
The inside of the TENGA 3D is made from an antibacterial elastomer material. This allows the device to be stretch so it perfectly fits your penis. The material is also incredibly comfortable and will warm up slightly with increased friction.
The elastomer is also antibacterial which is really impressive. One problem with male masturbators is that a lot of fluids, such as lube and semen, can become stuck inside. While you want to always wash your toys properly, having antibacterial material adds an extra layer of protection against germs finding their way inside.
The one issue with the elastomer material is that eventually, it will break down. While you don’t want to worry about this in the moment, it is a consideration that you will have to replace your TENGA 3D at some point, depending on how frequently you use it.
To prevent having to replace your toy ahead of schedule, always clean your TENGA 3D after each use. Let it air dry and store it away in its own bag. This way dirt and dust won’t accumulate on it.
The TENGA 3D doesn’t come with many accessories, as they aren’t really needed. This is a simple toy to use, which is one of its highlights.
However, it does come with a sample pouch of lubricant. As you should definitely use lube with this toy, it’s a nice gesture from the company to provide a sample so you can get started right away.
While there is no carrying case or pouch for the TENGA 3D, it is small enough that you can simply purchase your own pouch for it. This way you can more discretely carry it around.
Unlike other male masturbators, the TENGA 3D is very easy to clean. It is made from one continuous surface so there is no need to remove an inner sleeve. You can even bend the TENGA inside out in order to get a thorough cleaning.
For actual cleaning steps, simply use warm water. You may want to also use your fingers to get into any crevices as one downside to the TENGA 3D is that the geometrical shapes can trap lube and bodily fluids, which can then lead to the growth of bacteria.
Don’t use soap but if you want a better cleaning, you can use a specialized toy cleaner. Once cleaned, leave your toy out to air dry. Simply place the TENGA 3D on a clean towel and leave it to dry overnight before storing it away.
Sometimes you want to be able to travel with your sex toy and the beauty of the TENGA 3D is that it is small and discreet enough for this purpose. While the toy will stretch when in use, when on its own, it is quite compact.
The length is just 4.57 inches and the diameter is 1.89 inches. Furthermore, the toy only weighs 0.59 pounds. You can easily slip it into your backpack or even your briefcase. No one will be the wiser and you can experience unlimited pleasure.
While the TENGA 3D doesn’t have any extra bells or whistles, this actually makes the toy more portable. You won’t have to worry about any vibrations going off while travelling, or any beeping noises signaling the battery needs to be replaced.
TENGA is a great company but one area it lacks is with the warranty. With the TENGA 3D, no warranty is offered. This makes sense as the toy is quite basic and doesn’t have any mechanical parts to it. Basically, the only thing that could go wrong is if you rip it, and this would most likely be due to improper use.
You do, however, have 30 days to return your item. The caveat it that the product can’t have been opened. One you take your TENGA 3D out of its original packaging, you are no longer able to return it. Again, this makes sense as nobody wants to purchase a sex toy that may have already been used.
Shipping may not be a concern if you live alone but if you have roommates, or just don’t want your mailman to be aware of your hobbies, it’s reassuring to learn that TENGA offers secure shipping. Your product will arrive in a plain brown box.
Rounding off the many reasons to purchase a TENGA 3D is the price tag. Male masturbators can easily reach the hundreds of dollars mark. However, the TENGA 3D retails for just $39. That’s pretty unbelievable given its durability and performance. This is a toy that will keep giving you plenty of satisfaction.
If you love the TENGA 3D spiral, you may want to consider other models in the series. While they are made with similarities, their different geometric shapes will provide you with slightly different sensations. And, because of the price tag, you can afford to try a few different models.
The TENGA 3D is a gorgeous, sophisticated, and pleasurable male masturbator. While we especially like the TENGA 3D spiral, there are other geometric versions to choose from, all of which will provide you with unique sensations. We hope that our TENGA 3D review has given you more insight into all you can expect from this pleasurable sex toy.
