The tube love glove - masturbator by Doc Johnson - review by Dawn (Lilac Distraction)

Squishy squish squish!

The Tube Love Glove is a great first-time toy for men looking to experiment with the sensation of masturbation sleeves. Advanced and more experience users will love the simplicity of the design. The tube is easier to clean than other sleeves. For the price, this is a great deal!
Great price, good beginner toy, easy to clean, very stimulating.
Makes a small amount of noise, material can get sticky, outside can become too slippery with lube.

The Tube Love Glove is a great toy for men looking for a first masturbator and those on a budget. Experienced users will enjoy the simplicity of the design and the ease of cleanup.

This is a great toy for both masturbation, and hand jobs. It isn't intimidating, and is not at all life-like, which makes it great for use in the bedroom. It is easy to use and very fun for both men and women to operate!

This masturbation sleeve is very flexible and is made of Ultra Realistic 3.0 material. It can accommodate smaller to average sized guys, and larger guys who enjoy a tighter sensation. The inside of the tube is ribbed, which adds in sensation. The design allows it to cover the entire shaft. The head of the penis can also be pushed through the hole at the end to provide even more stimulation. A hand can be placed over the hole at the end, or the end can be pinched shut to add a bit of suction, as well.

It can be used in the shower with ease, although additional lube is recommended.

Material / Texture

The Ultra Realistic 3.0 material is very squishy, flexible and stretchy. It has a pretty realistic skin feel, with a bit of tackiness. The sleeve does need lube when in use because of the tackiness of the material. Because the material is silicone based, water based lubes are the only type compatible with this toy.

This toy is very stretchy and holds up to regular use very well. The one I had purchased is now over a month old and is still in like new condition even though it has been stretched, squished and used regularly.

The ribbing on the inside is just enough to make a difference and can be felt throughout the entire length of the sleeve, and especially on the head of the penis. Seeing as this is a basic texture and material, everyone from beginners to experienced users will be able to appreciate it.

Water-based lubes make it very slippery on both the inside and outside, so take care when applying lube so it does not make the outside of the sleeve too slippery to grip. We have found that when this happens, applying a sock or other cloth material over the sleeve helps to reduce slipping.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

This sleeve has a very basic tube shape. It is long enough to cover the entire length of most penises. The hole at the end allows for the head of the penis to be pushed through, and there is a small ridge at the top which adds extra stimulation.

My boyfriend did say that at first it was a bit tight, but with use it has loosened up a bit and is now a comfortably snug fit. It can accommodate smaller to average sized men comfortably, and those who are larger and like a snug fitting toy will also appreciate this sleeve.
    • Beginner
    • Tight fitting
    • Will fit most people

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy does make a bit of noise when used. (My boyfriend thinks it's the most hilarious squishy noise ever.) It isn't particularly loud and shouldn't be audible at all behind closed doors, under blankets or with a small amount of background noise.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

UR3 material has been known to be a bit sticky and is considerably porous. The material is only compatible with water-based lubricants. Oil and silicone lubes will damage the material, so avoid them at all costs.

To wash, simply run the sleeve under warm water and wash with antibacterial soap or toy wash. Cleaning is easy because of the straight, open design of the inside of the sleeve. Make sure to clean the inside well, as the ribbing may retain any lubricant or semen left inside the tube. Dry the sleeve and dust it with corn starch or UR3 preservation powder to help it maintain the material's texture and prevent it from becoming sticky.

To store, place in a clear plastic bag or container. I've found that the plastic zip top bags make a great storage solution for this sleeve. (I even covered one in patterned duct tape to provide a more discreet storage bag) A plastic bag will keep the toy from picking up any bacteria, lint or dust on the tacky surface.

Follow-up commentary
The boyfriend still enjoys this one and uses it pretty often, especially when I'm out of town. Even though anything that requires any type of maintenance is a bit too much for him, he's really happy with it. He pretty much proved that even though the material can sometimes need a little TLC, it'll still hold up really well if you just wash and go.
