We’re always on the lookout for new toys here at Treasure Island Media. If variety is the spice of life, silicone is our salt & pepper: it should always make an appearance, and it’s better to have too much than too little.
Every once in a while, we add a buncha new stuff at once! And since cross-referencing the entire internet for opinions and reviews is a pain in the ass, we figured we’d give you an honest rundown here on the blog instead. So without further ado, let’s jump into what’s new this week in the TIMStore.
Up first is the new series of SPINNERS by Tenga. Never heard of Tenga? Here’s the lowdown – they’re a Japanese sex toy company that’s become a mainstay in sex shops all over the globe. They’re mostly known for their disposable jerk off cups, but make no mistake – the SPINNER is 100% re-usable. We’d be sort of pissed if it wasn’t, because the damn thing literally dances on your dick. Cue trailer:
At this price point ($27) the compact size, drying stand, and carrying case make this thing a fantastic travelling toy. I took one home last night (the orange HEX version) and you can expect a full review in the coming week. I know your big question, though:
Does it really spin on your dick when you use it?
Yeah, it really does.
There’s a bit of a learning curve, admittedly – but once you get the hang of it, this thing feels damn awesome. I really liked how the internal coil gave it some structure, and made the SPINNER easier to handle than your standard jelly stroker. It won’t replace your fleshlight (or a side-alley hole) but for just under 30 bucks, it’s a worthy addition to my growing collection of dick toys, and one I look forward to using again tonight.
This thing’s got quite a shape to it – and it definitely makes a difference. I’m a huge fan of this cockring, both visually and in practice. I personally prefer silicon that’s more firm than soft, and I consider the BALLER to have perfect feel. The non-roll design is complemented by the circular troughs – they gave my hairs somewhere to hang out and I never felt a single pinch.
However, in the interest of honesty: If you have a GIANT package, it might press a bit into your balls. Whether that’s a pro or con is purely up to you 😉
If it ain’t broke, don’t fucking fix it. I said above that I prefer more firm silicone as opposed to the softer kind – if you disagree with me, this is the ring for you. Nice and soft, stretchy, pleasant colors, and won’t snap on you. Flat design, silky smooth finish, and 100% silicone.
