Bum Buddy Left me Bummed Out

The bum buddy totally bummed me out. It broke during the first use. It smelled like burnt plastic. It was not tight enough. It also left my hand sticky with TPE material.
Price, 56 nubs, stretchy.
Tears easily, smells bad, not tight enough.

useful review


This is a simple masturbator sleeve used manually. The quality of this toy is in great question. It's length is similar to other sleeves at 5 1/2" and it accommodates more than that due to its stretchiness. This will work fine for anyone with a penis. It's quite foolproof.

The box's claim of hundreds of raised pleasure nubs is very inaccurate. I counted 56 total on the inside.

The tube walls are quite thin and became translucent while I was inside it. A partner could also help you use this toy, but I'd skip insertion in any orifice due to the material's stickiness.

Use only water-based lubes with this toy because the TPE material will degrade with silicone based lubes.

Material / Texture

The material is listed as Techno-Skin, which is a variation of TPE or futurotic type materials. It is very stretchy and extremely sticky. Though it is phthalates-free, it smells like burnt plastic.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The toy is very thin and flimsy. Its claim of "hundreds of raised pleasure nubs" is more like 56 total. The opening is thin and split after a single use. The size is decent but could be much tighter in the tube section. It's very easy to hide because it can fold flat. It felt good but not great. The toy left my hand sticky after only 5 minutes.

Care and Maintenance

This material is a TPE variation. If the toy lasts for another use, cleaning should be with the included sample of cleaning solution or with a mild anti-bacterial soap. It's highly porous and will store bacteria, so wash before and after every use. It is close ended so you will have to turn in inside out. As with other TPE/TPR materials, dust with corn starch and store in a plastic bag.


The Bum Buddy came in a box with pictures of Monica Mayhem in various poses. The toy itself was dusted in powder and in a plastic bag. It also came with samples of lube and toy cleaner.

    Nothing like the smell of burnt plastic. Yum.

    Sorry this was such a bummer (no pun intended!)

    Thanks for the review.

    You could elaborate about general use a bit. Seems like this could maybe be tucked between mattresses to switch things up. Or partner use might be feasible. I won't lie, it looks like it could almost be inserted in someone and used at the same time. How thick is it? Maybe that's not a good idea.

    What lube do you recommend with this?

    Does it collect lint?

    It does collect lint like a magnet. It's also very sticky.

    If you could find a partner who would be willing to insert something that sticky and stinky inside, I'd be surprised.

    Awe, that sounds extremely disappointing. Nice review; I liked your attention and correction of how many nubs there were. Sad that it broke, hopefully this is a warning to other users thinking of buying it.
