Tenga Flip-Hole Review

Tenga Flip-Hole Introduction

Tenga is one of the leading manufacturers in the male sex toy industry, only bested by Fleshlight. They are based in Tokyo Japan and produce a variety of masturbators from disposable eggs to Iroha vibrators. Their website boasts that their goal is to provide pleasure, “the way it should be!” Today we are looking at the Tenga Flip-Hole, which is priced at $99.99. We are going to go over the four different variations today to help you chose the right one for you.

The Flip-Hole comes in three colors: white, black, silver, and red. Tthe only variation between them, other than the color, of course, is the internal texture, suction, and firmness of the material. It is important that you consider these differences before making a purchase, that is why I am here! Also, unlike the eggs mentioned above, the Flip-Hole is reusable, so again, it is important to consider which one will fit your personal needs, before buying.

What is the Tenga Flip-Hole?

The Tenga Flip-Hole is an easy to clean, easy to use male masturbator. Unlike Fleshlight and other pocket pussies, this masturbator does not have a removable sleeve or any sleeve at all for that matter. The toy flips open, hence the name.

The Flip-Hole measures 6 inches in total length with only about 5.5 inches insertable length. The width of the point of insertion is approximately 1.7 inches wide. The outer portion of the toy is made from PC, and the sleeve is made of TPE.

The toy does not have any electronic bits, meaning it can be used in the shower and washed with abandon. I say “with abandon,” but due to the material it is made with you should not use any soaps that are acidic, as this can damage the TPE. And you should only use water based lube (once you run out of the samples) with the Flip-Hole because TPE is porous.

Tenga Flip-Hole Features

Each sleeve features its texture, suction strength, and firmness. Each side of every sleeve has a different texture to it, creating a different feel on each side of the penis. You can control the pressure on any of the variations by applying pressure to the white “buttons” on the sides of all the toys. In this portion of the review, we will go over each color option.


The white Flip-Hole has the softest material of all the sleeves but has the second most intense texture pattern. One side of the masturbator is lined with nodules, and the other has two ridged “walls” running the length of it and ends with a large bulb designed to stimulate the head. The material with the Flip-Hole White is so soft, though, that the texture may not be felt as intensely as it is with the other colors. If you cannot feel the texture enough, you can use the white “buttons” on the outside of the toy to apply more pressure.


The black Flip-Hole has the firmest material of all the masturbators in this series. It also has the most intense texture of the four sleeves. The texture includes a series of textured balls, geometric triangular ridges, ridges, nubs, and at the end two large textured balls that completely encompass the head of your cock. The black Flip-Hole should be used with a fair amount of lube due to the intense texture and firmness of the material. This one can be too intense for uncut men or men who are not accustomed to a lot of texture.


The firmness of the red and silver are about the same and fall between the white and black. The texture of this one seems relatively plain compared to the first two I went over, but do not let that fool you. It features a series of shallow geometric ridges and can be great if you find that you want something not too intense. The Tenga website describes this one as “a maze of planes and edges for a strong, smooth sensation.” If you found the white Flip-Hole too tight, this one is a good alternative.


This one has the most intense suction of the four, but the texture is comparable to the silver. The texture is shallow and not as intense as the white or black, but paired with the suction can be very intense. On one side of the red, there is a series of ribs and diagonal ribs at the end that stimulates the head. The other side has firmer ribs that are staggered differently than the ones on the opposing side, and at the end, there are three ridged things that resemble slinkies. This one is best suited for men who want more suction.

What comes in the box?

All four of the Flip-Hole’s come in a round, plastic sleeve with three sample lubes. The packaging is sleek and straightforward. The sample lubes come in packaging that resembles test tubes, and there are three types.

Mild: This is the thickest of the three lubes and has a sticky feel to it.
Real: This one also feels sticky, but is not as thick as the mild, and feels like most water-based lubes.
Wild: I prefer this one out of the three. It is the thinnest and wettest.

How to Use the Tenga Flip-Hole

To use any of the Flip-Hole’s you must first remove the plastic clip (which is also used in cleaning the toy). Once the clip is removed, you can open the toy like a long book. It is hinged at the bottom of the toy and opens the long way to reveal the texture. Open the toy and apply lube to the texture, you can also lube up your dick, but you should apply lube to the toy as well. Close the toy and slide the plastic clip back onto the toy, but this time from the end so that it holds the toy closed.

Once you have the toy lubed up and put together, you just penetrate it. You can flip it over to feel the different textures on other parts of your penis or twist, turn, and angle it for different sensations. Using the Tenga Flip-Hole is simple, and the most difficult part is getting the clip on the end of the toy when your hands are slippery.

What Do I Like About The Tenga Flip-Hole

Simple – While there are many varieties of the Flip-Hole, they keep it simple. It opens clam style to aid with cleaning, the buttons are manual and squeezing them provides just as much pressure as you apply. And it is easy to control.

Variety – There are four different styles of the Flip-Hole. Each color represents a different suction, texture, and firmness of the material.

Texture – Each texture has its advantages and all of them feel fantastic with a lot of thought put into the construction.

Suction – While it is not as intense with the more textured versions of the toy, it gets intense with the silver and red. Tenga did a great job picking what suction levels to pair with what texture.

Ease of Cleaning – Flip the toy open, and use soap and water to clean out all the nooks and crannies. Then use the plastic clip to “hang” the sleeve on to dry.

What I Didn’t Like About the Tenga Flip-Hole

Limited reuse – The user manual lists that the Flip-Hole is only good for about 50 uses. At around a dozen uses, I started to notice a couple of rips and tears.

Not discreet – While the Flip-Hole series does not feature a detailed pussy or another obvious orifice, it is not discreet. If you leave it out drying and have company over, they are more than likely to know what it is!

Time to clean – Cleaning it is easy, but add in drying time and it can take up to a couple of hours to ensure that it is completely dry.

Black/White harder to clean – These two have the most intense and deepest texture. Due to this feature, these two take more time to clean, and you have to work harder to get the lube and bodily fluids out of the nooks and crannies.

Price – The Tenga Flip-Hole is about $100 for only 50 uses. This is just ridiculous considering that the Fleshlights are only $70 and last for more than 50 uses.

My Final Verdict

If you have $50 to blow on a toy that you will only get 50 uses out of, it is worth it! Not only do you get a variety depending on which color you choose, but you also get variety depending on how you hold the toy. Depending on which color you chose, cleaning is a breeze, but waiting for it to dry can be a pain. The simple design is unique but provides a new take on male masturbators.

  1. 50 times isn’t really a fair thing to say. Of course there’s wear and tear but there’s wear and tear with any masturbating toy. I’ve used mine for well over 50 times. It’s the white one so there’s not as much detail as others so there’s less to ruin I guess but it doesn’t feel brand new. That doesn’t mean its not doing its job or doesn’t feel good. Don’t let that stop you from getting a toy you’re interested in cause its just not accurate.

    • I think 50 uses was just what the company recommended. I agree that it doesn’t seem like much, but with care anything can be used more than manufactures suggestions! Do you know about how many times you’ve used yours? I wanna get one, but I don’t wanna invest in something that is gonna go out after only about 50-100 uses.

        • Sex toys sell something called talc powder and they mark up the price to make a profit. It is basically baby powder. You can use baby powder and it will do the same damn thing for a fraction of the cost.

  2. Hahaha man I really like the Flip Hole. I’m surprised I can’t find better reviews on it in general. Yeah it looks weird but have you ever tried cutting into your pocket pussy? And it’s not any worse to clean than any other toy you stick your penis in to get off or more obvious than if you leave out your Fleshlight. Some of the complaints are ridiculous. It feels good, it lasts a while, it cleans up. What else do you guys need??

    • It looks like it would be easier to clean. Instead of having to run water through a small opening in a pocket pussy or Fleshlight it looks like you just up this one up and run water over it. That’s a plus for me! I hate cleaning toys.

  3. This is the best review I’ve ever read. I’ve got one of these red Flips and this article really does go over everything really well. I agree about the value but I had the money to spare and it wasn’t a total wash. I like it enough to not completely regret it but I wouldn’t ever buy another.

    • Would you buy another color? Red is the most intense one and I would not be able to handle that. I want the whole set so that I can build up to the red one, but I don’t want to buy too many if they’re just too similar.

  4. THE LUBE! I dont even care about the flip anymore the LUBE it comes with is fantastic. It changed my whole life!

    • Did you know that you can buy the lube by itself? I just found out recently and it changed my whole life! I was sad when I ran out of the lube that came with the toys. It is almost worth it to buy more of the flip holes just to get more of lube. Thankk GOD it is sold separately.

  5. This is the first non-realistic toy I’ve used and I was really hesitating at first because I thought since it looks so fake that it wouldn’t turn me on or anything, but it’s like saying an ugly chick can’t feel good. I went with the black one because I’ve got toys with suction and I’ve got generic but the black Tenga seemed like it had the most texture to it. It definitely has more texture than anything I’ve ever used before and it feels amazing with any of the lubes it comes with. My usual lube even works with it and I like that even though its more detailed than any of my other toys its still pretty easy to clean out. It’s not too expensive and it feels good and I don’t keep count of how often I use a toy but its still going strong so far so, you know, I’m pretty happy with my purchase.

    • It being non-realistic has me on the fence to. I’m very visual and wanna see something nice while I’m sticking my dick in it.

      • When you’re using a realistic toy, you can’t really see the lips anyway. The visuals are there, for the most part, for when you’re about to use, after you use it, or when you wanna crane your neck to look at the base of your junk. These toys are so worth that small scarifice.

  6. Tenga Flip Hole is one of my favorite random purchases. My wife and I each get a new toy for our anniversary that we can play with because we believe toys spice up our sex life whether we use them together or on our own. Over the past few years while new stuff is constantly coming out in our budget for her most of the cool stuff for men is way outside of my budget or I already own it. I got a Tenga Flip Hole because I really wasn’t sure what else to get that wasn’t exactly like everything else I already have. I got a red one just because of the color and I have to say I was a little skeptical but after the first time using it I’m glad I got it. Its definitely not the best thing I own but it is nice to go to when I need something a little different and this texture is pretty simple to clean so all in all it was a good random find. If nothing else interesting comes out by my next annviersary I’ll probaly get another color.

  7. I like trying new toys but I’m staying far away from this one. It looks cool and sleek but after seeing the video of the inside I do not want to stick my dick in crazy and that flip is crazy. I’ve never looked at a triangle or a spiked ball thing and thought Hey I want to rub all up on that. I think the only cool thing about it is the way it opens for cleaning but since I’d never get off using it I don’t have to clean it. I don’t care if it was only $10 I’m not going anywhere near it. Nope nope nope

    • The spikes and stuff are really soft. Think like those earrings that were really popular in the early 2000’s. They don’t hurt and create a nice sensation. I’ve had mine, the black one (the firmest one apparently), for a few years now and have never been hurt by it.

      • Surprisingly, this isn’t the 1st time I’ve heard a toy compared to one of those earrings. I kinda wanna rub one on my clit just to see if it’s true.

  8. I bought the white one for my husband he loves it. He is on the smaller end of the spectrum and the soft texture is just enough to stimulate him without being over bearing. He wants me to find more of the lube it comes with, but I haven’t looked into it. I really enjoy using it on him, but he has told me he’d rather use it on hisself.

    • I have the opposite problem. I’m really big and find that most texture isn’t enough for me. I just push it down. I want to try the red one because it sounds promising. I’m just worried about it not reaching all the way down.

  9. There are so many options! How do you choose which one to buy if you’re on a budget? I want to try them all!! They all sound so awesome.

    • I’d start with girth. How big around are you? If you are on the bigger end of the girth scale then you should check out the thicker textured one. If you’re smalle, go with white. If you’re average just go with the super textured one.

      It can be hard to decide, but you just gotta decide which one sounds the most appealing to you and go with it. If you hold back, you’re just keeping yourself from pleasure.

  10. When I first got the white one I hated cleaning it so much that I just wouldn’t use it. Then I got a tooth brush just for sex toys and now I use it all the time. It’s so much easier to clean when you use a soft bristled tooth brush.

    I actually recommend using a tooth brush for any toy collectin. It make cleaning everything so much easier.

  11. Tenga makes amazing toys. I started with their eggs (which are cheap and great) and have since moved up to their flips. Their flips are like a more luxurious tenga egg. I still buy the eggs sometimes, but the flip was a complete game changer for me.

    • How would you suggest they update it? I would love to see more, new male products on the market. But I just dont’ see how they could update this one.

  12. I feel like I have a very common problem – Idk which one to get! They all sound amazing. I know that I can’t afford to get all of them, but I at least want one of them in my collection.

  13. I had the white and loved it but there was a ton of reviews saying the black was better. So I got the black too. In my opinion it isn’t better. At all. The white is softer which feels more natural and the suction in the white is stronger.

  14. I don’t like the toys that look realistic. These look fantastic. I’ve tried the eggs in the past and they were amazing. I can only imagine how much better these are.

  15. My favorite feature about the Tenga Flips is that they can set apart like in that first pic for thorough drying. I have the BlewIt and that thing takes FOREVER to dry. I wish more toys had this feature.

  16. My two cents on the White: It’s pretty fucking great, and it lasts a helluva lot longer than it’s recommended for. I’d give it a solid 8 out of 10. Warm it up with warm water or the heating rod from FL and lube up for best results.

  17. I wonder how all of these compare to the Tenga 3D. I have the Tenga 3D and love it. I use a small amount of lube and can come 2-3 times before taking it off.

  18. The FlipHoles are so much better than Fleshlights cause there’s no leaking out of the cap and clean up is so friggin simple.

  19. I just got rid of my Tenga Flip Hole Red, and I’m looking for something similar. I found that the Red was good, but not mind blowing. I’m looking for something to wow me. I really liked the design, just the texture and suction was meh. Should I get another color or would you guys recommend something else entirely?

  20. There’s a new one called Tenga Zero and it’s so much better than anything they have ever put out! You guys should really check it out. I would love to hear a FapGuy review on it!

  21. Even though you can use it up to 50 times or get even more uses out of it if you take good care of it, it is still made out of porous materials, like TPE. No matter how well you care for and clean it, it will still harbor mold and bacteria. On top of letting it dry very, very well, you need to put cornstarch on it regularly, otherwise, it’ll get very tacky. TPE and the like just aren’t worth the money companies want for them because they require so much upkeep.

  22. I gotta check out this series of toys for myself. I’ve never heard of Tenga before. You’d make a great sales rep for them, fapguy.

  23. All. Of. The. Agree. Yes. I give a 10/10, would recommend. Also, the Tenga eggs are phenomenal. They’re portable, affordable, and clean up is so so so so easy. With the eggs, you can use them in very interesting ways, too.

    Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

  24. I had the flip hole red for for ever. And used it almost daily for a couple of years. It lasted way longer than it should have.

  25. I have the black and despise it. It’s too firm and has a death like grip. Stay away from that one at all costs! Since getting mine, I’ve read that the white is a much better experience.
