Vibrating masturbator

Dumbbell for Your Dong

The Hot Ride is an entry-level masturbator that features a vibrating bullet and an external controller to adjust the strength of the vibrations. Unlike most other masturbators, an assembly is required before use in order to insert the bullet. The masturbator may also be tight and/or too small for many men.
Provides interesting sensations, especially if you are able to insert your penis all the way in.
Complex assembly and cleaning process.

extremely useful review


I received this just in time for National Masturbation Month and as an experienced masturbator, had to take the Hot Ride for a few test drives. The first thing I noticed is that it is roughly the size of a beer can but shaped somewhat like a dumbbell. As with most masturbators, it's necessary to get hard before inserting my shaft into it; however, I found that I need to be very erect in order to penetrate the inviting pussy lips. Even though I'm an average-size guy and I always make lots of precum, I need to slick up my willie with lots of lube in order to get it in. Given the tightness and the need to be so hard just to start, I suspect that larger guys, especially men with more girth, may find the Hot Ride a bit tight. In fact, the Hot Ride is almost too tight for me.

Inviting Pussy Lips

Once my fully engorged penis is inside, I try to sense the interior texture; unfortunately, the texture isn't too noticeable as my manhood slides against it. Next, I turn on the adjustable vibrator switch to see what additional sensations might caress my member. Although the vibrations were pleasant, they aren't earth shattering. Interestingly, the Hot Ride seems to grip my penis in such a way that the pussy lips want to ride my pubes - the vibrations feel good there.

Overall, the Hot Ride feels very tight to me but does loosen up a bit during use. The vibrations are okay but are better for providing a fun time rather than making me blow my load. So far, every time I've used this masturbator, I've had to finish off by hand.

Material / Texture

The case is made from a hard, somewhat clear, coffee-colored plastic that feels a bit brittle; I wonder if it will crack with regular use. The inner penis sleeve is made from TPE, a hypoallergenic skin-like material that feels really good sliding against a hard cock. While the interior of the sleeve does have a texture, it was barely perceptible as my member slides against it. Although the exterior case lacks any noticeable smell, the penis sleeve has a slight plastic scent, especially up close.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

As mentioned previously, this masturbator is shaped like a dumbbell and easily fits into a man's hand. Unlike many other strokers, the Hot Ride has several removable parts, many of which must be removed before use, as well as during cleaning. The plastic exterior consists of three parts; the body and two end-caps. It is not immediately evident that there are two end-caps and it isn't easy to tell how to remove them. In fact, I didn't realize that the end into which your cock is inserted is removable until after cleaning the Hot Ride for the first time. The cap on the back-end is also a challenge to remove and takes a bit of effort to figure out how as it is not clearly marked. However, it is necessary to remove the back end cap to insert the vibrating bullet, which fits into the end of the penis sleeve. The first time I tried to insert the bullet, I was afraid I might break the plastic end-cap.

Many Parts

Once the bullet is inserted into the sleeve, the attached wire must be threaded through the hole in the end-cap and then connected to the controller. Like the exterior body, the controller is made from the same type of plastic. After replacing the end-cap, the wire is attached to the controller, and the Hot Ride is ready to use. As I mentioned above, the Hot Ride is a bit tight for me, even though I'm an average sized guy. During use, my penis head will sometimes bump into the bullet, which can be uncomfortable.

Functions / Performance / Controls

As noted, the Hot Ride comes with a rather large bullet that is inserted into the top of the masturbator. The bullet is operated through the use of a battery-powered controller (two AA batteries) that adjusts the strength of the vibrations. Although the total length is 6 1/2 inches, when the bullet is inserted, there is a little more than 4 inches into which to insert your erect penis. As the Hot Rider is designed with a solid end cap that holds the bullet in place, most men will end up hitting the bullet with the tip of their cock during use. Personally, I don't like this. To avoid this, sometimes I remove the hard end-cap and that allows my dick to penetrate deeper and lets this masturbator massage my pubes.

Care and Maintenance

During use, silicone or water-based lubes may be used. Given the tightness of the Hot Ride, I usually use a fair amount of lube in order to get my manhood into it. Due to the design, cleaning this masturbator requires more work than most as it must first be disassembled to be cleaned thoroughly. Fortunately, instructions are provided.

Cleaning Instructions
    • Hard to clean


The plastic packaging that the Hot Ride arrives in may be used for storage, although it is rather large. Fortunately, a discreet, black storage bag is also included and is very handy for keeping this masturbator hidden from prying eyes when not in use. Interestingly, the packaging for the Hot Ride has a different name on it - the Cum Explosion.

    Excellent review! It does look like a nightmare to clean if intended for regular use. The name on the packaging is also mildly hilarious.
