Deep throat cup - masturbator by Tenga - review by TheCleansing

An innovative, nearly perfect experience from Tenga

If you're willing to shell out for a disposable toy, Tenga's Deep Throat Cup (or its US cousin) is a very solid bet. This one's a bit small, but you have to check this thing out. The suction and lubrication mechanisms are pure genius, and lead to an enriched and very sexy experience.
Felt awesome, easy cleanup, disposable, suction hole, lubrication mechanism.
Too small for some, price point for disposability.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I recently had the pleasure of reviewing the Tenga Deep Throat Cup. Having used a variety of the Tenga Eggs and the Flip Hole in the past, I had high expectations for the Deep Throat Cup. It certainly did not disappoint.

To use it, one simply removes the sticker on top (that controls suction), and unwraps the toy from its tight plastic-wrap packaging. Then one unscrews the bottom to reveal the penetration point, and goes at it from there. Stick it in, up and down motion. No rocket science there. The toy itself is not complex, but there are many absolutely ingenious parts of the toy that I will describe later in the review.

I made a point of going on a business trip with mine in the suitcase, and it went very well. Cleanup was a breeze as the toy was disposable and it left no mess. As for couples, why not? It would be a ton of fun for a partner to control the suction and motion on the toy. I wouldn't try it in the shower though, as the lube (I'm fairly sure) is water based.

The most interesting thing about this toy is the suction principle. At the top of the toy, there is a hole that is covered by a sticker when you buy it. Remove the sticker and air is allowed into the toy. However, if you thrust deeply, cover the hole, and attempt to pull out, it creates a strong suction that is distinctly similar to the suction produced by a good head session. I think this is definitely the defining achievement of the toy. After all, it does seem to be the namesake.

Also, the suction is noisy. Not that real life suction wouldn't be.

Material / Texture

The outside of the shell is hard plastic. The inside (the goods) are a soft material I assume to be silicone as these things often are. The first genius point of the Tenga Deep Throat Cup is found here. At the rim of the toy (but not visible) is a spongelike circle with a hole in it for penetration. This spongelike material is supersaturated with lube, and the thrusting motion will aid in lubrication of the entire toy. I found this worked very well for most of the toy, although the lube did not reach the far back of the toy.

The texture is sort of a futuristic nubs and spheres shape, as Tenga is prone to use. It's far from realistic, but is definitely a pleasurable experience.

There is a gentle odor associated with the lube, but it is not unpleasant, nor particularly detectable.
    • Bumpy
    • Light odor
    • Textured interior

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The design of this toy is amazing. The suction hole worked just like it was supposed to. The lubrication sponge at the rim was also a very intelligent innovation. Overall, the disposable nature of the toy can be praised, as it was just an open and use and throw away experience. No cleanup apart from a shower on my part. No hassle.

Sizing was a bit of an issue, but that was probably an oversight on my part. I got the smaller Tenga Deep Throat Cup, thinking my about average size was a good fit for it. While it was pleasurable, it was tight. And not the good kind of tight. I also found trouble burying my entire shaft into it. Next time I'll be getting the US Tenga Deep Throat Cup (the larger alternative). Minor oversight on my part, but if you get the right toy, you shouldn't have a problem with it at all.

The sizing of the toy is very reasonable apart from fit issues. The packaging is fairly discreet. Unless you read the text on the packaging, you probably wouldn't know it was a sex toy straight up. I packed it in a suitcase and used it on a business trip in a hotel room, so travel suitability is a definite yes.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Futuristic
    • May be too tight for some

Functions / Performance / Controls

The textured inside was great. Maybe not realistic (like the human mouth it seeks to emulate) but definitely pleasurable. The lubrication mechanism was a novel and interesting touch, and worked essentially like it was supposed to with a few hiccups.

The best? Clearly the fact that it had a suction hole. I was amazed at how realistic it was, compared to a human giving head, and I admit I just explored the suction hole and its effects on the toy quite a bit.

The worst? Probably the size. A bit small, but that was my fault and I can't blame Tenga. Overall, the performance was good. Not perfect, because the lubrication didn't quite reach the back of the toy, where it would have helped quite a bit, but far far above average in terms of male toys I've tested.
    • Easy to use
    • Very stimulating

Care and Maintenance

Eh, not really. No care, no maintenance. It's meant to be a one use thing. A bit expensive, I know, but sometimes one has to reward himself. Unwrap it. Use it. Chuck it.

If you want to use it more than once, I don't know if you can wash it out. I haven't tried, but I imagine the inside is somewhat complex.

It is designed to be used once, and served its purpose very well as that.

I stored it in a suitcase and that probably experienced a variety of temperatures, although no serious extremes. Keep it out of an oven and a freezer, and I'm sure it will work fine.
    • Easy to store


The toy is packaged in a hard, thin plastic "sheeting" that is tightly stretched over the toy. There are cute little pictorials on the packaging that show you how to use it. The instructions were definitely accurate and nothing was confusing. The toy is pretty cut and dry, and that's absolutely okay. The toy can't really be used as packaging or a gift box, but as is, I know I for one would love to receive one in a Christmas Stocking or something. It's really simple, pretty, and discreet packaging. Kudos Tenga.

I imagine the plastic packaging on the outside is recyclable. I wouldn't recycle the toy after I'm done with it.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Personal comments

The suction experience was awesome! I know I keep going on about that but really, it was an experience I didn't think a toy could pull off.
Follow-up commentary
After trying a Tenga egg and the rolling head cup, I've decided this or the Tenga egg is my favorite of the disposable Tenga toys. Still would absolutely recommend this for a disposable sex toy if you're into the price point (which is a bit steep). Great for travel.

    Thanks for the great review. These sound great, but I don't think they are worth the price. Maybe one day I will try one.
  • stlouisxxx
    Thanks, I might have to break down and try 1. But I rarely get off from just getting a bj, so it isn't top on my toy list.
  • Jimbo Jones
    So, is a BJ different in the US? Not that you make that decision, but it seems strange that there is a US version. These sound like pretty sweet sleeves even if they are disposable. Thanks for the great review.

    Good review! I use the US version of of the Deep Throat cup, I also tried the regular version and it was too tight, the US fits just right. (I'm about 5 1/2" around.)
    I figured how reuse the toy, just take it apart and rinse out the sleeve and put it all back together. I throw out the lube sponge, that can't be reused. Besides, I find the sponge to be scratchy.
    It's a little extra work to clean this but it's worth it. The suction feature is by far the best masturbator sensation I've found and I've tried quite a few. I usually get 30 - 40 uses out of this before the silicone stiffens up too much, that may be due to the soap or the lube. No worries though, at the price 40 uses is a bargain.
    I'm going to try the 3D but I suspect they will be too small.

    Jimbo: No, the BJ itself isn't different, haha. Just the size of the cup.

    Thanks Nine Pies. Looks pretty innovative.
  • ~LaUr3n~
    We use the Us version too :p
  • MrSinister
    And now I want to try the eggs. I've tried the rolling head and the DT cup so far. Deep Throat (japan version) is my #1 so far... but the egg? Hmmmm...

    Thanks for the review. Looks like I'll be getting more of my Tenga on soon.
