This review includes my opinion on both the Tenga Air-Tech Twist Tickle and Ripple because the main difference is the texture inside. Everything else is the same. I’ve already had a great experience with the Tenga Flip 0 so my expectations were high.
First off, in true Tenga fashion there isn’t anything sexy or flashy about the Air-Tech strokers. They are exactly what they claim to be… STROKERS! No hot porno chicks or romantic couples on the packaging, just the name and directions.
The Air-Tech Twist seems like a simple design consisting of a plastic cup and a stroker sleeve but don’t let this fool you. There’s a lot going on. The plastic cup has 5 different settings (loose to tight) that’s controlled with a twist. It’s very simple to control even with lube on your hands.
The sleeve is made of TPE. It fits easily into the cup and will not shift or slip out during use. Suction is controlled through a hole in the cup that works in conjunction with the different tightness settings and outer sleeve design. To be honest, I’m not sure how this works but it definitely does. As with any stroker, lube is a must. To get the most out of the textures, I recommend going heavy on the lube.
The internal design of the Tickle looks medieval when turned inside out, with a lot of nubs sticking out in different directions. Don’t be alarmed though because this feels pretty damned good. With the loosest setting the feeling is the most intense. I wouldn’t describe it as a tickle but it feels like soft finger tips running over my dick.
The slower the movement the more intense the sensation. This is where I spent most of my time. Clicking through the different settings was very easy and wasn’t distracting at all. With each setting change it felt like the fingers were tightening around my dick. The tightest setting was just that. Way too TIGHT! The closer I got to orgasm the middle setting was the one that did the trick.
The best way I can describe the internal design of the Ripple would be circular ribs. It’s very soft but keeps its form so, as it glides over my dick I could feel all the different textures. This is where the magic lies with the TPE material. The slower you go the more pronounced the feeling. This design in particular targets the most sensitive area of my dick, the head. As with the Tickle, the medium setting was the one that worked best.
One of the coolest things about the Air-Tech Twists is the closed design. When ejaculating you don’t have to worry about catching rogue spurts or cum leaking out of the bottom. Everything stays inside. Also, the way the opening is designed it almost works as a squeegee when I remove my cock. I was surprised how clean everything was when I finished.
If you’re someone who is concerned about noise during your masturbation sessions these toys will definitely freak you out. The suction sounds are pretty loud!
Clean-up is super easy. Remove the sleeve and head to the sink. I turn the sleeve inside out and clean with antibacterial soap. This material feels very durable so don’t be afraid if you get aggressive when cleaning. I found that leaving the sleeve inside out was best for drying.
I thought Tenga did an excellent job with the Flip 0 so, all new products have a lot to live up to. I must say the Air-Tech Twists did not disappoint. You can’t go wrong with either of these strokers but if I had to pick a favorite of the two it would be the Ripple.
OK so, I’m trying something a little different in this review. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so why not add a video of it in action? Feel free to let me know if this is something that you’d like to see in future reviews or added to past reviews. I’m not shy.
Hey, dizzy here. This is obviously a NSFW video but then my entire blog is probably NSFW. Just giving you fair warning though. I have to say, I’m impressed with dizzyguy’s skill in keeping the video steady with one hand and jerking off with the other.
None of my affiliates have the Tenga Air-Tech Twists yet but I will update this post with links as soon as they do.
