TENGA has announced two new types of masturbators to their popular TENGA CUP series: the U.S. TENGA CUP series and the brand new SD TENGA CUP series. Both series consist of a soft, standard and strong variant. The U.S. TENGA is slightly larger than the normal TENGA CUPs and the SD TENGA is shallower. These products will be available everywhere in the course of 2022, but TENGA already allowed me to test them. In this post I will review the SD CUP. I have reviewed the TENGA U.S in a separate post.
What is the SD TENGA?
If you are not yet familiar with the concept of the TENGA CUP, you should know that it is a ‘sleeve’ or tube made of TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer). This is a super soft, flexible and elastic material. With TENGA CUPS, the sleeve is fixed in a holder made of hard plastic. You cannot remove the sleeve and therefore the CUP is meant for single use only.
While the U.S. TENGA stands for ‘Ultra Size’ – signifying that this is a large masturbator, I could not find anywhere what SD stands for. Shallow Depth? Because that’s what the SD TENGA is. It’s primarily a shorter masturbator, made so that the user can touch the tip. The idea of this concept is that you can enjoy the large, spherical structure at the top of the sleeve with shallow, rapid thrusts. TENGA pointed out to me that SD stands for SUPER DIRECT, by the way…
The SD TENGA will be available in three strengths from launch: standard (red), strong (black) and gentle (white).
- Dimensions: Diameter 69 mm and length 120 mm
- Insertion depth: approx. 110 mm
- Insertion width: approx. 60 mm
- Weight: 115 gr.
- Material sleeve: Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE)
- Material casing: Polyethene (PE)
- Lubricant ring: Polyurethane rubber (PU)
- Lubricant pre-installed at the factory. Ingredients: Water, glycerine, propylene glycol, hydroxyethylcellulose, sodium polyacrylate, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, hydroxypropyl beta-cyclodextrin, IPBC (lubricant is certified by EU Directive 76/768/EEC toxicological evaluation).
- Other properties: Disposable
All three SD TENGA CUPS have a plastic shrink-wrap with a print. The colour indicates the strength you are dealing with: the white is gentle, the red is normal and the black is extra strong.
In order to use the SD CUP, you must first remove the packaging. You should also remove the small sticker on the top. There is a hole underneath which you can increase the suction (more on this later).
At the bottom is a cap. Take it off and you will see the hole where you have to put your penis, or that of your partner. You can also see that the SD TENGA CUP has already been lubricated with plenty of lubricant. So you can start using it right away.
The test drive with the SD TENGA CUP
As the SD TENGA is less deep, it is mainly meant to be used for the stimulation of the glans of the penis. On the inside of each type of TENGA there is a structure of ridges, dots and balls which are actually never very noticeably present. But this structure, in combination with the sucking effect by a vacuum, gives you a wonderful feeling. I am a big fan of TENGA products and I would advise everybody with a penis to try a TENGA CUP at least once in their life.
The three SD TENGA CUPs differ mainly in strength. The white one is the mildest. Penetrating this SD is easy and the friction and suction is pleasant. In the black one, the friction is much stronger. Penetration is even more difficult, but the suction and stimulation are also stronger. The red one is somewhere in between. Which one suits you best, depends a bit on your preferences; if you like to have a lot of ‘grip’, take the black one.
There is a hole at the top. As soon as you cover that with your finger, a stronger vacuum is created, causing the masturbator to, as it were, suck itself into your penis. This gives a truly sensational feeling. The SD is very comfortable to hold because of its ‘barbapapa’ shape. Not only is it nice to move the CUP up and down, but also to turn it around.
When you’re done, simply put the cap back on the masturbator and put it in the bin. Unless, of course, you are thinking of the environment. Unfortunately, the sleeve is stuck in the casing, so to clean it you can rinse it under warm water for a long time, until your body fluids are completely rinsed out. Of course, the lubricant will also be washed away, so if you want to use the SD Cup again, you will have to add water-based lubricant yourself.
How does a TENGA CUP work?
I must admit that I was getting a bit curious about the inside of the SD TENGA CUP. And so I slaughtered one.
The TPE sleeve is glued at the top to the hard plastic cover. Under that edge is a ring of a similar material (which, by the way, broke on me during butchering). This ring contains the lubricant. On the photo on the left you can see a rectangular piece of foam rubber. This is around the sleeve and provides counter pressure in the width. On the top there are two foam rings, which ensure that your penis will not bump against the hard sleeve. They also take care of the air passage/vacuum caused when you open or close the hole.
If you turn the TPE sleeve inside out, you can see the internal structure that stimulates your penis. On the picture you see the white (gentle) version. What is striking is that there is a soft ball at the very top, which stimulates the glans. The structure of the three versions is slightly different. In the black version (the strongest), there is also a kind of elastic band around the foam rubber (which is also a bit thicker than in the other two versions). This provides the extra strong grip.
The SD CUP is another very successful masturbator from TENGA. If you have a penis and you masturbate (duh), you should really try a TENGA CUP.
The PROS of the TENGA U.S. CUPs:
- Fine soft and flexible material
- The internal structure provides extra stimulation
- Provided with lubricant
- Suction (vacuum) can be regulated with one finger on the hole
- Fits very easily in the hand
- For single use only (not very durable)
*At the moment of writing the SD TENGA CUP is not yet for sale in Holland. They are only available through TENGA EUROPE.
