Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Flame Thrower is primarily designed for couple's use, but it could also be used during solo play. This ring also has a strong bullet with 7 settings for fantastic stimulation. Its design lends itself more to external stimulation rather than a strictly utilitarian cock ring. It's best suited to be worn over the shaft, but it can be placed around the balls and shaft if desired. Using it around the balls will hinder the full use of the bullet. To get the full stimulation effect, it should be worn on the shaft alone.

Cock rings are traditionally used during intercourse to restrict blood flow, allowing a better and longer erection. The vibrations add extra sizzle for both partners. This ring can also be used during a blow job or a hand job. He can wear it along the shaft or take the bullet out and use it on the shaft, balls, or perineum. The bullet can also be used on her clitoris, nipples, vulva, or any other erogenous zone. The ring can also transform a dildo into a vibrating toy. With so many uses, you'll be sure to be satisfied with this toy.

The bullet can be positioned on the ring in four different ways, maximizing the pleasure possibilities. The strong bullet and versatility of the ring make this a fun choice for everyone.

Material / Texture

The Flame Thrower has two components:

The ring is made from TPR, which rates a 7/10 on the Eden safety scale. TPR is porous and should not be shared, since it cannot be sterilized. It can be used with any type of lube. The ring is very stretchy and feels squishy. It is smooth, except for the jagged flames at the top. It is a bit thick at a half-inch wide. The width does limit the depth of penetration possible. With all the extra stimulation going on, the deep penetration might not be missed.

The bullet is made from ABS plastic, which is an 8 on the safety scale. The plastic is hard and rigid without any give at all. It is very easy to manuever on skin. It glides easily without any drag. Any type of lube is fine if needed.

Neither the bullet nor the ring has any smell nor taste. You can give oral sex using this without any odd tastes or smells.
    • No odor
    • Somewhat porous
    • Stretchy

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The cock ring is designed to resemble flames as the name implies. It is available in either black or red. The red one more closely resembles flames. With the bullet, attached vibrations can be felt throughout the flames and the entire ring.

The ring has 2 places available for the bullet. A hole is placed directly in the center of the flames. Another set of holes are on the sides near the bottom. Additionally the ring can be worn with the flames up or down. This give 4 options to wear the ring.

Flame up with the bullet through the flame for clitoral stimulation
Flame down with the bullet crosswise for clitoral stimulation
Flame up with the bullet through the flame for penis stimulation
Flame down with the bullet crosswise for penis stimulation

If you have a spare bullet, you could use both bullets for stimulation of both the clitoris and penis. This toy includes only one bullet; however, the company also sells a Flame Thrower Double Bullet that includes two bullets. If you are interested in dual stimulation check that toy out.

At its widest point the entire ring is 2 inches. The most important measurement of course is the diameter of the hole. Unstretched it is a mere 3/4 inch, but it stretches to about 2 1/4 inches in diameter. Stretching it to his fullest limit might hinder the use of the bullet particularly the bottom cross section. The top section should be fine though.

It is very easy to put on and off the shaft. It would take more time to fit it over both the balls and shaft. As stated before, it's best if used just on the shaft. The main purpose of this cock ring is the extra stimulation via the bullet. Using the ring around the balls will restict how you can use the bullet. Any type of lube can be used if needed.

It's waterproof if you want to take it into the shower or tub. Just be sure and screw the battery compartment on tight.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations in this bullet are strong and satisfying. This is not a wimpy bullet. There are 7 settings to choose from.

1) Low Steady Vibration
2) Medium Steady Vibration
3) High Steady Vibration
4) High intensity pulse with pause
5) Escalating up and down vibration
6) Pulses at varying intensities
7) Low to High Escalation

The vibrations are strong and quiet. They can be heard in the room, but not outside a closed door.

The bullet is turned on by pushing a botton on the end of the bullet. The settings can be changed using the same button. The button is easy to push, but it will not accidentally change settings if bumped lightly. Hold down the same button for several seconds to turn it off. It is harder to turn off than to change the settings. Just hold the button down until it shuts off. There is no memory with the bullet. It will always turn on at the lowest setting.

The bullet runs on 3 LR44 watch bullets which are included with the purchase. Incidentally, if the batteries are placed in the bullet the wrong way, the bullet will run but only on one setting. Make sure you have them in the right way to enjoy all the settings.
    • Easy to use
    • Strong vibrations
    • Very stimulating

Care and Maintenance

This is easy to care for. The bullet and ring should be taken apart so each part can be cleaned thoroughly, using soap and water or a toy cleaner. The ring should be left to air dry since it picks up lint easily.

A ziplock storage bag is great for this. It will protect the ring from lint and also keep it from reacting with any other toy. It's small enough that it won't take up much space in your toy drawer.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Flame Thrower arrived in clam shell packaging with the toy visible. The back has helpful diagrams of all the possible positions although it does included pictures for using two bullets. That is misleading since this particular set only includes one bullet. It's typical throw away packaging that is not suitable for long term storage.

It is not discreet packaging. It's obviously a sex toy. There are directions on how to install the batteries and place the bullets. There are no instuctions on how to wear it.

My husband and I have different feelings on this toy. I (the female) love the vibrations. It provides wonderful strong stimulation I can't get enough of. However, my husband is distracted by all the buzziness during intercourse. We usually take it off for the big finish. I continue to use the bullet on my clit just without the ring. That is a win-win solution for both of us.

We both enjoy it for oral and manual sex, but I love it more.
Follow-up commentary
This was fun for awhile. My husband never warmed up to it. The buzzy vibrations were distracting for him. We have a cockring that works better for us, so this doesn't get any more use. It was a decent ring; it just didn't suit our long term needs.

    Very informative review! This sounds like a solid toy for the price, but I don't think that we'd like how thick it is. It's lame how rings reduce the length of ones partner! Great job, though.
  • mpfm
    It is a good toy for the price, especially considering how powerful the bullet is. I didn't mind sacrificing deeper penetration, but my husband did.

    Glad you are enjoying it. Thanks for sharing!

    thank you for the review.
  • aluraceleste
    Thanks for the review... I was thinking about getting one of these in the future, but this one sounds a little too thick! I think the Man would miss the depth. Again, thanks!

    Thanks for reading, everyone.
  • unfulfilled
    Fantastic review. I'm glad that you enjoy it so much. It's always nice to find a strong bullet. I like that you have the ability to change the bullet around for either partner to get stimulated and then take it out all together.
