When it comes to sex toys for women, the overload of choices is the issue. Meanwhile, male masturbators often have little variety, with often basic designs. 


The stigma attached to adult toys for men means toy companies don’t make the biggest effort with them either. But an obvious exception is Tenga, a Japanese sex toy company. 


The Tenga Eggs series complements natural masturbation while making the experience more intense. You have more control over the toy, but the Egg comes with its own set of sensations other toys can’t replicate. 


Let’s learn more about these personal pleasure devices and how to use them. 

What Are Tenga Eggs?

Tenga Eggs are stretchy little egg-shaped male masturbators unique to the Tenga company. You can make individual purchases or buy a variety pack. 


Tenga Eggs are single-use disposable sleeves. Some customers do use them more than once. But, Tenga doesn’t recommend you use them repeatedly. 


As they’re one-time-use products, the Eggs are particularly inexpensive, with a single Egg barely costing $10. 


According to Tenga, you can stretch the Eggs so much, it can cover a 500ml plastic bottle. So, even if your penis is lengthier with more girth than most men, you can still cover the entire thing. 


Some prefer inserting their penis into the entire sleeve while some only stimulate the head with it. 


Calum McSwiggan from Lovehoney thinks Tenga Eggs feel good because it’s essentially a manual toy. There’s no need to practice or learn particular techniques with the toy. You slide it on and masturbate the way you normally would. 


Except, it feels infinitely better. 


Tenga Eggs also make for discreet little travel toys. Even if the Egg falls out of your bag, most people aren’t going to look at an egg-shaped item and think masturbator. They’re more likely to assume you’re carrying one of those egg-shaped snacks containing candies we used to get in our childhood. 

A Step-by-Step Guide to Using Tenga Eggs


Unwrapping and using Tenga Eggs is almost similar to putting on condoms. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use Tenga Eggs:

1. Unpacking Your Tenga Egg

Because of the egg concept, you have to first peel the hard outer shell with the Tenga logo on it. Pull the casing open the same way you would open a water bottle- with a slight pressure, turn it to the side. 


The outer shell is also available in fun little colors, with both white and hard-boiled brown Eggs to choose from. Inside, there’s the smaller, softer Egg - the penis sleeve. The sleeve is usually made of TPE. 

2. Applying Lubrication

The softer Egg has a small opening, where you will find a packet of lube. Pour the lube into the small space. 


Some people heat up the Egg with lukewarm water. It’s easier to stretch the Egg when it’s warm. 


You can flip the Egg inside out to palm the textured part. The inside of the soft Egg is textured differently depending on the model. You will find twenty-four different textures in the market. So, the sensation you feel for each type is distinct. 


Spread the lube firmly with your palm on this area. 

3. The Correct Way to Put on a Tenga Egg

Flip the Egg back to its original shape. 


Insert your penis into the opening where you poured the lube. At the same time, use your hand to pull up the base of the Egg. Once it’s wrapped around your head, stretch the base to cover as much as you want. 

Types of Tenga Eggs and Their Features


You can buy Tenga Eggs in a variety pack of six or make standalone purchases. 


Some mix and match the Eggs from different packs. Others buy entire packs because they tend to be even more cost-effective. 


You have 4 variety packs to choose from:

1. Tenga Egg Standard Pack

The Tenga Egg Standard pack is a revised version of the original 6-color series. They’ve changed certain sensations or doubled down on a particular feature. 


  • The Egg Wavy II is available in a teal blue outer casing with textured ridges which overlap over one another. 
  • The Egg Boxy has box ridges which are thicker in the middle. The sensation is stronger when you move the sleeve up and down. 
  • The inside of the sleeve is packed with strokers from start to finish which brush against you with every movement you make. The Egg Brush also has spiraling ribs at the base which twists every time you move past it. 
  • The Egg Tornado has spiraling ribs all throughout the sleeve, almost resembling a tornado. It works best with twisting motions and vertical strokes. 
  • The Egg Sphere comes with big orbs with ribs in each one of them. You switch between the softness of the orb and the striking brush of the rib, feeling quite the sensation. 
  • The Egg Silky II is extra thick with intertwined ribs all around the sleeve walls. 

2. Tenga Hard Boiled Egg Pack

The Tenga Hard Boiled Egg series lives up to its name by providing stronger stimulations. Even the lotion in the pack is harder and more slippery. 


  • Vertical ribs line up the entire sleeve of the Egg Thunder. It’s a promise of experiencing more electrical sensations. 
  • The Egg Crater is a popular little guy among Tenga lovers. It has raised craters with well-placed nubs. It provides the perfect sucking sensation. 
  • The Egg Misty has small triangular ridges inside the sleeve. The texture is particularly pleasant and almost feels like hands. 
  • The Egg Cloudy is super thick, with swirling textured ribs in every corner of the sleeve. It’s a tight fit you can’t get enough of. 
  • While the inside of the Egg Shiny has ribs all around, the center is a large nub. It feels right when your head hits the nub. 
  • The nubs in Egg Surfer are deep with sudden drops, making for wonderful surprises. 

3. Tenga Hard Boiled Egg II Pack

The  Tenga Hard Boiled Egg II pack switches up its outer casing to brown, to switch the hard-boiled theme.  It’s not necessarily a more intense version of the  Hard Boiled series, but rather an addition. 


  • The name is no coincidence. The Egg Spiral imitates a spiral staircase. Moving up and down through it makes for a smooth but firm ride. 
  • Egg Shiny II has a sun-shaped nub in the middle and curved ribs all around. It’s not a sensation you can recreate anywhere else.
  • The Tenga Egg Combo surprises you with ribs and nubs spiraling all around each other at every turn. 
  • Cone-shaped ribs are packed together in the Egg Cone variety. It is perfect for twisting motions. 
  • Nubs are packed so tight in the Egg Misty II, you bump into them with every twist. 
  • Egg Gear, as the name suggests, has gear-shaped ridges all over. 

4. Tenga Egg Wonder Variety Pack

The Tenga Egg Wonder Variety pack is another edition of the regular Strength Egg series. It’s similar to the standard pack and simply provides more alternative smooth sensations you can opt for. 


  • Egg Wonder Wind comes with vertical waves you move up and down through. 
  • Every part of Egg Wonder Stud is studded with nubs. Every turn and twist takes you to another world. 
  • Ridges create a mesh pattern in the Egg Wonder Mesh. It wraps around you.
  • The Tenga Egg Tube has long ribbed lines from start to end. 
  • Ribs connect to nubs all the way through the sleeve in the Egg Wonder Curl. You experience a mix of relief and tightness with every up and down. 
  • Ribbed ridges circle the inside of the sleeve, earning the name Egg Wonder Ring. You have to twist and swirl it to enjoy this one. 

Maximizing Pleasure with Tenga Eggs


Tenga Eggs are suitable for solo use and for couple play. In fact, many customers can’t stop gushing about the hand job they have received with the Egg. 


After you pour the Tenga lube into the small opening inside the egg, slip it onto your penis by handling it by the base. Stretch it up to the end of the shaft by pulling up the base. 


Next, pull the sleeve up and down your penis. Listen to your body. What do you like? Try different motions like swirling and twisting. You can also loosen or tighten the grip. 


You might want to focus on the head more at times. 


The textured ridges will already make it a unique experience for you. But, if you want to experience something different, you can also flip the egg inside out. The smoother part of the sleeve can also help you achieve a different feeling. 


Some even combine other discreet masturbation aids with the product like the bullet vibe. Just slip a vibe into the egg and use the vibrator to stimulate the head. 

Cleaning and Maintenance of Tenga Eggs

There’s no cleaning or maintaining Tenga Eggs. You dispose of them immediately after using them. 


Put the sleeve back inside the hard egg casing and seal it. Then, throw it away as acceptable according to your neighborhood recycling instructions. 


It doesn’t matter if you did orgasm or not, you should throw the Egg away if you slipped it on once. 


This isn’t to say some people don’t reuse the Eggs.


If you are one of them, you should at least clean it before next use. Run the egg under arm cold water. Use a mild soap and make sure to rub the soap all over the textured inside. 


Wash it with cold water again. Store it somewhere cool, dry, and away from direct sunlight. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 

1. Is Tenga Egg reusable?

No, Tenga Eggs are all single-use items you should immediately dispose of. In the case of non-ejaculation, Tenga still recommends getting rid of the Egg once you’ve inserted it. 


However, some customers do use it more than once. Even then, they suggest not to use one more than 3 times. 

2. What does the different Tenga Egg variety offer?

3. Is Tenga Egg suitable for all sizes?

Yes, Tenga Eggs are super-stretchable, making them perfect for all sizes. 


According to Tenga, the Eggs can cover 10 inches with ease and you can stretch it beyond. 

4. Are there any safety concerns to be aware of when using a Tenga Egg?

Tenga products, including Tenga Eggs, are usually made of TPE

In particular, the Tenga Egg sleeve is always made of TPE, which is non-toxic but porous.


Bacteria could seep into the Egg and make a home there even if you give it a thorough cleaning. So, Tenga suggests you get rid of the Egg after using it. 


Otherwise, Tenga Eggs do not have any safety issues.


Tenga actively steers away from including any kind of harmful chemicals in their products, including vinyl chloride. The Tenga lotions have also been tested several times. 

5. Can the Tenga Egg break or tear during use?

Yes, Tenga Eggs are prone to tearing during use. It’s why you have to be generous while applying the lube and be super gentle with handling during insertion.


To make sure the stretch is smooth, you can also wash the soft Egg with warm water before applying lube


Take your time while inserting the Egg and always move it around by the base, rather than the head. 


Final Thoughts

Tenga Eggs are the perfect little gateway into male masturbators. They are discreet, manual toys anyone can use. 


It’s no different from using a sock, but your sock comes with textures. If you buy a pack, you can experience different textures every time you masturbate. 


If you are unsure about sex toys, Tenga Eggs make sense because of how cheap they are as well. So, don’t overthink it and buy your first Tenga Egg.
