I love innovative gadgets. That’s why I’m always walking around with the latest smartphone, my coffee maker is connected to Google Home and my fridge has built-in webcams so I can see if the milk has run out while I’m shopping. So when I saw the first pictures of the Otouch Superstriker vibrating penis sleeve, I was all too eager to test it. But whether I was still so enthusiastic after testing it? You can read it below.
What is the idea behind the Otouch Superstriker?
See, when I read the word “superstriker,” I thought this was a vibrating masturbation sleeve for the penis. Especially since the Otouch brand primarily supplies masturbators. Well, it is NOT! The description of this product says that “the Superstriker is designed to stimulate the glans and sensitive frenulum.” This would give you the idea that you could reach some sort of hands-free orgasm with the remote control.
But if you read the manual carefully, you will find that this sleeve is not intended for solo sex at all. On the contrary. It is also not a “sleeve” at all, because the Superstriker only goes over the head of the penis. The name Superstriker is therefore very misleading.
This is because the Otouch Superstriker is meant to be an extension of the penis. It is a kind of ‘cap’ that you put on the head of the penis, which makes your penis about 3.6 cm longer! And because the Superstriker vibrates, that can be pleasant for the receiving party, if the top touches the A-spot or the C-spot (the sensitive spots around the cervix).
That said; the Utoch Superstriker is thus a kind of penis extension that can vibrate at 7 speeds (3 constant and 4 patterns). You control the vibrator with a remote control that you can wear on your wrist like a watch.
You can charge the vibrator with an included USB cord. The remote control runs on two included small button cell batteries. The vibrator is waterproof, the remote control is not!
Unboxing the Otouch Superstriker
Upon unpacking the Otouch, I initially became very excited. The packaging looked neat and also the Superstriker and the remote control looked nice at first glance. It also contained batteries, a charging cable, a manual and a storage bag. Totally complete!
However, the positive experience quickly diminished. And that started already with putting the batteries in the remote control. To do that, you have to pick the red box out of the silicone wristband. It was completely unclear how you had to open the box. After a few minutes of ‘fiddling’, I found out that the lid had to be turned a quarter of a turn (later I saw that on the lid there was some kind of vague arrow). Anyway, batteries in, and … nothing. Remove the lid, turn the batteries … again nothing. Read the manual again (‘place batteries correctly‘. Yes, but HOW!?). At random, I flipped over one of the batteries. And that seemed to be the trick.
To charge the Superstriker, you have to push the pin of the charging cord through the silicone outer layer with a lot of force. This requires so much force that you think you are killing the thing. But again, in the end it works.
Taking the Otouch Superstriker for a testdriver
The manual was very unclear. When I wanted to try the Superstriker for the first time, I still thought it was a masturbation thingy. I placed it on the head of my penis, which was still limp, and turned it on, hoping that the vibrations would make me hard. To do this, you have to hold down the button on the Superstriker for a few seconds. You can then control it with that same button, or with the remote control. I already thought it was very illogical. ‘Why would you put the remote control of a masturbator on your wrist?’
But, if that’s what the manufacturer has in mind, then that’s what we’ll do, right?! However, that was not so easy. The wristband is in fact a C-shaped bracelet, the ends of which go into the box of the remote control. This does not go very easily, so you have to fiddle around with it for quite a while before it fits properly.
With the help of some porn, my penis was well hard and therefore the Superstriker was pretty well vacuumed around the glans. However, the vibrations of the vibrator were barely perceptible. Rather, it was a soft sort of hum. Only the slightly lower frequencies on some patterns were mildly pleasant. No more than that. And because the Superstriker went over the head of the penis, further stimulation by hand was not really possible.
Then my eye fell on one of the drawings in the manual. Wait. **insert the sound of a falling penny here**
So the idea is, with this thing on my glans, I have penis-in-vagina sex?
I discussed it with my partner and both of us were not enthusiastic. Why not? Well, for a whole series of reasons. First, I’m not limited in the length department. An even longer penis wouldn’t necessarily provide more pleasure. Vibrations then? You should know that my partner has had cervical cancer, which resulted in the removal of her uterus and part of the cervix. As a result, it has lost some of its sensitivity. But ‘most of all’, we have had bad experiences with losing things in the vagina. Nothing is less erotic than spending half an hour removing an object that shouldn’t be there. And this thing might just come off the head of the penis. The shape is not exactly ‘removal-friendly’. And finally, this thing doesn’t have a ‘sperm reservoir’ like a condom does. So, the chances of the thing coming off if I were to ejaculate would – according to our theory – only increase. Using the Otouch Superstriker anally would therefore be completely out of the question! The manual suggests using a condom over the Superstriker, presumably to prevent the thing from wandering in the vagina. That would have been a plan, but we refrained anyway.
I decided to check out Otouch’s website anyway. Perhaps I had overlooked something? Maybe there was a vision behind it that I had missed? On the packaging and in the manual, there are some QR codes that take you to Otouch’s website for more information. But the whole Superstriker can’t be found on Otouch’s sites (neither otouchtoys.com nor otouchfun.com). Too bad Otouch, nice try. But “no thanks”. This didn’t inspire much confidence either.
And then a word about that being waterproof: That’s fine for cleaning, because you can rinse it under the tap. But since you wear the remote on your wrist and it is NOT waterproof, using it in the shower or bath is not a good idea.
This is by far the most confusing toy I have ever had the pleasure of testing. The name and description are misleading, the instructions are unclear, and the use is downright risky, as you run the risk of the thing detaching from the penis and getting lost in the vagina (not to mention the anus).
But, if you could use some extra inches and your partner likes stimulation of the cervix or fornix and you trust that the thing – whether or not supported by a condom – will stay in place? Be my guest!
The PROS of the Otouch Superstriker:
- Beautiful finishing of the sleeve
- Storage pouch included
- Misleading name and description. This thing is not meant for masturbation and barely stimulates the glans and surrounding area!
- Unclear manual (how to place the batteries, how to use this thing at all?)
- I think there is a risk that you will lose this thing during use (with or without a condom) and that is why we did not use it in practice. There are limits.
- Not suitable for anal use (for the previous reason)
- Weak vibrations, barely felt in the glans. For safety reasons, we did not try it vaginally.
