The interior sleeve is made from TPR Silicone, which should not be confused for pure Silicone. TPR Silicone is a thermoplastic rubber based silicone.
Waterbased lubricants should only be used with this toy due to the fact it is made from TPR Silicone. Silicone or Oil based lubricants can possibly harm or destroy the TPR Silicone, and silicone lubricants can even bond to the TPR Silicone sleeve.
There is no noticeable smell to the toy, which is great considering a lot of toys come with a strong smell. Thankfully this does not.
It should also be noted that this toy should not be shared due to the fact that this material can not be sterilized completely due to the porosity and bacteria can hide more easily. Condom use is also suggested due to this fact.
The white exterior is covered with tiny dots that are inline and are uniform. These dots slightly help the user hold onto the device if the user has slippery hands. The dots are also very aesthetically pleasing and give off a futuristic appearance.
The flip open sleeve provides a number of different textures that provide a number of unique stimulations. Each side of the sleeve is unique and is not symmetrical. One the left side, the textures start with big nodules and work into larger wavy rib like nubs, then finally into a raised sphere that is studded with several tiny nubs. On the right side, the textures start with several tiny nubs and work into wavy rib like nubs. At the top of the right side are four smaller spheres surrounding a larger sphere, all of which have the same wavy ribs as the earlier textures.
The Tenga Air Flip features an air release that if used correctly can create suction and add to the stimulation. When you press into the Tenga Flip you push air into the cylinder, as you pull out, by pressing the air release, this creates suction. Unfortunately this toy creates a loud noise when using, mostly due to the suction.
One of the greatest features the Tenga Flip Air White is the flip open design, this allows for easy cleaning and maintenance. Just by sliding off the lid and flipping open the device all you have to do is rinse, apply a mild soap or toy cleaner, and rinse once more. With the flip open design drying the toy is also very simple. It is recommended that you air dry this toy.
Unlike the closed, no flip variety toys, the drying of the interior is so much easier and is at less of a risk of forming mold due to improper drying and left over moisture.
Tenga Flip Air White comes in a clear plastic package that showcases the exquisite white exterior design. The words Tenga is written in Red against a white background. At the base of the package is a clear tube of lubricant. While not ideal for storing the packaging has a great shelf presentation and will certainly draw customers to it. There are no explicit images or descriptors, nothing that will detract from the product itself. The presentation exudes an elegant and classy appearance.
The Tenga Flip Air White is a very unique toy, one of a kind. This is the first of the Flip Hole line that I was fortunate enough to get my hands on. The Sensations are light and far from overpowering, but still very pleasurable. The suction that is created is not too powerful, and I felt that there was no risk of injury due to the suction.
I was really impressed with the design of the case, the hinges were not visible, nor were any clasps. I felt completely safe with the design; I never got caught or tangled up in a clasp! Ouch! The flip open design really makes cleaning a breeze, as is drying the toy. One thing I have to say it has over its counterpart the Fleshlight.
There are a few draw backs to the toy, one being the loud noises that are produced during use. I think the loud suction sounds and the sounds of air escaping from the device could be heard through walls, which is never a good thing. This is the loudest device I own, even louder than any vibe I have heard. If you have a house to yourself, then you are in for a delightful experience.
I also loved the exterior of the toy; it reminds me ironically of the future, or to be more precise of movies about the future. Something about the exterior reminds me of the movie Demolition Man, and I do not exactly know why - perhaps it was the discreetness of the design or the purity in the color white.
I would not recommend using the lubricant if you have allergy problems. The free clear tube of lubricant has no markings or ingredient lists. Nor does it even say what kind of base it uses, I assume that it is waterbased due to the fact that you can only safely use waterbased lubes with this.
I would recommend this to anyone who does not like to be over stimulated, or to those who are curious about suction toys, but do not want too much suction. I enjoyed this toy, but can not say I would use this often. Even with directions and re-reading them several times, there is a learning curve to this toy. To use this toy effectively, it takes time and patience, both of which I find myself lacking anymore. I dislike putting labels like beginners on a subject like this, but in this case I would suggest that more experienced users use this due to the complexity of the toy.
