    My Personal Experiences

    My Personal Experiences with TENGA Flip Zero

    I really thought that the TENGA Flip Zero was just an overpriced stroker with a big name attached. Honestly, I kept this opinion for a bit until I got used to using the toy. Its bulky size makes it a bit challenging to use until you get used to holding it, and the included lube sets it up for failure right out the box. However, once I got more used to using the toy and switched lubes, the overall value of this toy became apparent. Using your toy is fun but cleaning up after sucks. The TENGA Flip Zero makes this a very easy process, and that’s really what makes this toy worth its questionable asking price. 

    Using the TENGA Flip Zero

    There are a bunch of different ways you can use this toy. Here are a few of the methods I tried and how they turned out!

    Holding the Side Rails

    Don’t do this. Although it seems easy to hold, the side rails will just slide out.

    Holding the Pressure Pads

    This is the best (and “correct”) way to do it, but it takes some getting used to. There aren’t any indentations on the pressure pads, and they get very slippery if you get any lube on them. As intended, the pressure pads allow you to squeeze your shaft precisely where you want to apply extra pressure.

    Holding the Tips of the Pressure Pads

    I found this also works well, although the motion feels a bit weird. Still, I’d recommend giving it a try because it feels great and is ideal if you want near-uniform pressure combined with suction.

    Getting the Best Suction

    There is a little bit of suction regardless, but you can get more if you squeeze the extra air out of the TENGA Flip Zero. I found the best way was to first insert my penis all the way to the end of the canal, and then squeeze the pressure pads (top to bottom) to get the air out. Once you do this, the toy is stuck on there! The “seal” of suction depends on how much lube you’re using. Too little will result in less suction, but too much just makes using the toy very loud. Speaking of excess lube, while the provided lube exploded out the back—which was irritating and a poor first impression—my “private supply” didn’t have this issue, even when used in excess. The worst leakage I experienced using better lube was a few drops out of the back: nothing more!

    Conclusion

    Although the price is a bit more than is desirable, the TENGA Flip Zero is a product that still gets two thumbs up from me. The included lube is horrible (and leaks A LOT), but once you use better lube this leakage all but goes away. The experience isn't very "realistic", although I don't think that's what TENGA was going for—it's a neutral entrance so it can be whatever you want it to be! In use, the toy feels great, and I never had any trouble finishing with this toy, so I can confidently recommend the TENGA Flip Zero to anyone with a penis who loves suction, hates cleaning, and wants something for everyday fun.

    How to use TENGA Flip Zero

    This toy is similar to other strokers, but there are a few differences. Here's how to use it!

    TENGA Flip Zero
    Apply lube
    TENGA Flip Zero
    First things first: you'll need to apply lube to your penis & to the TENGA. You can lube the Flip Zero either by opening the toy or by dripping lube into the insertion hole.
    Insert your penis
    TENGA Flip Zero
    This is somewhat self-explanatory, but if you struggle to fit inside, you need more lube! Pro tip: apply a bit of extra lube into the end of the TENGA Flip Zero, drip this onto the tip of your penis, then slowly work your way down the shaft while spinning the Flip Zero to evenly apply the lubricant.

    Have fun!
    TENGA Flip Zero
    Fast, slow, or anywhere in-between: just have fun with it! This toy is a bit different than your average stroker, but once you get used to it, you're sure to fall in love.
    Set it out to dry
    TENGA Flip Zero
    After you're done, clean the TENGA Flip Zero using antibacterial soap and warm water, then place the toy in front of a fan in the stand and allow the toy to completely dry (depending on how your position the toy, this may require adjusting it once or twice throughout the drying process).

    FAQ

    Is the Tenga Flip Zero actually worth $100?
    It depends on how often you will use it. If you use your stroker every day then the Flip design will likely save you a lot of time throughout the year normally spent cleaning your toy. Alternatively, if you cycle through various toys then you might want to wait until the TENGA Flip Zero is on sale, but I would still recommend it nonetheless!
    Can I use silicone-based lubricant?
    You can, but be aware that your toy may deteriorate quicker! TENGA recommends using only water-based lubricants.
    My penis is longer than 6.3 inches: would you still recommend this toy?
    That depends: do you want to be able to insert your penis all the way into the toy? At 6.3 inches, you'll be touching the end of the toy so that may be a deterrent. If this doesn't bother you, then go for it!
    How much suction does the TENGA Flip Zero have?
    With the right "fit" you could easily hang this toy off of your penis and walk around: it's pretty intense!
    Which parts of the TENGA Flip Zero are the hardest to dry?
    Overall, this toy dries quickly and easily, but you'll want to double-check the entrance hole: this can retain a bit of moisture!
