Slinky Sleeve

For a reasonably-priced sleeve with a variety of uses, the Textured Sleeve does the trick. It can be used during sex, during a blowjob, and in the shower. It even comes with it's own lube! Drawbacks include its tendency to tear, short life-span and nasty habit of magically attracting dust bunnies. If you're okay with these inevitables, grab one up and have at it.
Silicone and water lube compatible, can be used during sex or fellatio, lube included
Not sterilizable, funny smell and taste, won't last through many uses

extremely useful review


You can 'enjoy' The Sleeve, his friend Mr. Lubey and his Asian friend. It's a 4some for the price of a solo session!

The textured sleeve is pretty much all a kid could want in a jackoff sleeve. Its open end leaves the possibilities for variety in function wide open. Its TPR material is soft and silky like real skin, and allows for a waterproof play session. It's friendly with silicone and water lubes. What more could you want, really? Alright, so it would be great if it were sterilizable, and if the blasted thing didn't rip after a few uses. Oh, and the lint-collecting habit is pretty annoying. But hey, let's not get greedy now. This is a low-end toy that does just what it promises. And you get a sweet little lube sample to boot! Now, wasn't that friendly of our Asian sex toy creating friends?

Let's just say thank you, and move along.

Material / Texture

TPE? What the heck is that? Well, ladies and gents. As it turns out, it's the same as TPR. What the heck is that, you ask again? Well, A bit of research unearthed the following...

Wikipedia talks about TPR here for those who enjoy the science of things. As it turns out, TPR (ThermoPlastic Rubber) is not just for sex toys. It is a plastic/rubber composite, more commonly used for the manufacturing of anything from toothbrush grips to the new and improved 'comfy' catheter.

TPR is latex and phthalate-free, which is wonderful. But this soft, squishy plaything is porous, so you can't really sterilize it, which is not so wonderful. You can always use antibacterial soap in the cleaning process if you're concerned about bacteria, however.

The softness of the material is what makes this toy so great. It lends give to the texture, so from the bumpy interior for him to the ridged exterior hand grips, none of these details are going to hurt you. In a glass toy, I'd scream and run away from these textures, but the plushness of the TPR provides just enough strength to allow you to feel them, and smile.

Bumpy nodules stimulate from the inside.

Inside-out sleeve. Same size as a mouse, just about.

The interior is lined with soft bumps to gently tickle your man's thingthang. What's really going to be doing the stimulation will be your, or his hand wrapped around the sleeve, controlling the tightness of the toy. Luckily, the TPR feels so much like real skin, that once you've warmed it up to your own body temp, you may experience eyes so far rolled back in your head you may see Angelina Jolie riding your cock. I said 'may.'

One drawback of this particular TPE is that for some reason it has been sprinkled with a candy-necklace-scent. So your hands and your peepee will smell like candy after using it. It will also taste a bit like candy. Not necessarily the worst thing to smell or taste like, but if you're not looking for a sensory experience of the sugary kind, just wash this bad boy off with soap before using it. It make take a couple cycles of washing and leaving to dry, but the candyman will leave you alone sooner or later.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The hand grips on the outside of the sleeve make a great design, as things get slippery when pumping a slinky sleeve up and down a raging horse... er, manpeen.

At no bigger than a computer mouse, this sleeve is also great for traveling. It'll hide *fairly* discreetly in your suitcase or nightstand. Prying eyes will only suspect its true purpose if they've used one themselves before, at which point you can simply call their ass out and call it a draw.

Yep. That's my hand in there.

The TPR is incredibly stretchy, so even your most endowed gent will be only attempting to pump his ego if he claims it's 'too tight.' Knowing this going in gives you the upper hand, so you can call him out on his shit when the moment arrives. The 3.5" long peenpal may be short as well, but he'll stretch himself out to fit just about anyone on the raging cock radar.

Functions / Performance / Controls

So it's pretty cool that this is open-ended on both sides. This means you can slide the sleeve down your boy's tree and ride him till the cows come home. Or surprise him by sliding your mouth over his head while jacking the skin-like sleeve over his balls and cockbase. He'll get a kick out of that.

The lube this comes with is in a teeny little nondescript bottle. The package doesn't label it as silicone, water-based or otherwise, so take care if you tend to have adverse reactions to any type of lube. There's no telling what's in this stuff.

Other than the mystery-meat factor, the lube performs alright. You can see here how thick it is. It doesn't run well at all, and slicks up my hand well enough. You'll definitely need to reapply every few minutes during vigorous rubbing. But for a free lube, it does the job.

Just poured.

One major drawback of the TPR is not only how unsterilizable it is, but also its stickiness. Every dust bunny in town will want to play with your new toy. Also that soft material will rip and tear, creating little holes that will be difficult to clean, and eventually lead to a 'trashy' demise for the Textured Sleeve.

Care and Maintenance

Cleanup is done with soap and water. Use antibacterial if you have any. Check your toy for tears and be sure to clean out any rips. Bacteria stored in sex toys can cause infections. Yucko.

Air dry and store in a plastic bag or other plastic container. The package it came in will also do the trick.

A good rinse before each use will ensure dust bunnies don't stick to your lubed-up hands or your crown jewels.

Ah, Anime packaging. Always shamelessly indiscreet, covered with Japanese/Chinese writing, Engrish if any attempt at English is made, very little information, and lots of warnings. At least the cardboard is recyclable.

Personal comments

For my boy this wasn't at all the *most* stimulating toy in the world. What really makes it fun is the TPE's similarity to real skin in feel. The variety of ways to play with it don't hurt either. Get creative and you'll find plenty of uses for the Texture Sleeve before it's time has come.
Follow-up commentary
We really haven't used this since its initial playtime, but I still have the lube and all ready to go when my boyfriend is. I wish it were a safer, more sterilizable material, however for this price you cannot expect to have your cake and eat it too.

I still think it's a great toy for the price. A quick wash will rid it of the candy smell, and the included lube is a nice touch. It's super versatile in its use, and will last a little while with gentle care.

    Great review, my boyfriend loves ours and I do too since the open end does open up many possibilities. Thanks for sharing
  • aliceinthehole
    thanks for reading guys! i recommend this sleeve for a first time sleeve, no doubt. if it were a soft silicone, all the cons about it would be eliminated no doubt, but it would certainly be more expensive. it's pretty solid for what it claims to do, however.
