Some toys are offensive, some are stupid and some just make me mad with bad design and this is one of those. The Delta by Tenga is a well-meaning toy, but the ridiculous on/off switch and big seams make this a Don’t Buy!
Wand good sex toys? Look here!
Sometimes something comes out that just makes my body physically recoil… and this is one of those times.
This Butt Plug is part of a line of Self Lubrications toys (STL- Self Lubricating Technology) and it is oooging me out.
With its new Self Lubrication Technology (SLT), this buttplug is always ready. Penetration has never been so smooth and easy. No lubricant is needed. Just add a little water or saliva on the inside. After use just wash, preferably with toy-cleaner. The SLT will last for about 30 times. After that, the toy can be used by adding some lube manually.
So to break it down, this is porous TPE device that you stick in your ass after you water it up to get the lube going. Then you take it out, wash it, dry it and start all over again. Up to 30 times! Ok maybe that sounds great but there is NO indication of what the “lube” is made of* and this is a porous toy to begin with which is not a good idea for your butt (think of all that bacteria harboring in there). And really if you have to go run it under water to get it wet enough to shove in a butt, isn’t it actually easier to put lube on it? Sure, it says you can use spit to activate it but come on, how much spit does anyone actually have? You’ll need a lot to get this puppy slick…
“But think of all the money you’ll save on lube!” you say. Pish posh.. this retails for like $40 and if you want a crappy porous TPE butt plug you can get on for a fraction of that price (but DON’T! Instead go get a silicone one for way less and a bottle of water-based lube and you will be much better off).
Now I’ll be honest, the SLT toys that are made for one to stick their dick into do not wig me out as much, the porous status is less disconcerting when you are not putting the toy actually IN your body. And yeah, I can see keeping masturbation sleeve in the shower that only needs water to become slick kind of a good idea. But for the LOVE OF DILDOS please avoid putting anything in your butt (or vag) that is porous and that has something made of GOD KNOWS WHAT embedded in it that makes it slick.
*Seriously I have a REAL problem with this part. I am sure they do not list what this is made of to protect this “innovative” product but if you are putting this in your body, you should really be allowed access to the knowledge of what it actually made of!
