We’re here! The last review of 2022. And we’re seeing the year out with those purveyors of sophisticated wanks, TENGA. I relish any opportunity to stick my dick inside a TENGA toy. So let’s not waste too much time and get into it!
Before I get into it, I want to shout out MEO who not only sent us this product to test out, but they have helped us keep the blog afloat, during the times when I was feeling *this* close to closing; their generosity and support helped keep me going… so thank you. Anyway, enough of the sentimental stuff. TENGA have released several versions of their FLIP range; and if I’ve reviewed all of those, it was only natural I was going to review the latest version. I’m not going to keep you waiting any longer; let’s just dive into the review.
As with all of the FLIP range, the Gravity is packaged in a sturdy plastic case which doubles as a storage capsule. Underneath, there is a little compartment which holds onto some lube sachets and instructions on use and maintenance. The concept behind the Gravity is the same as all the other sleeves; there is a soft, squishy texture that is designed to envelop your member. As you squeeze the sides, a vacuum is created; allowing you to customise the sensations you receive.
The Gravity texture seems innocuous at first; it sits much lower in the case. According to TENGA, the FLIP Zero Gravity features ‘luxurious detailing’
whose lower elevation allows you to enjoy stimulation from fast, smooth strokes that aren’t possible with the larger ribs of the original series.
I guess I’m just going to have to lube up and find out what they are talking about?
And so that’s exactly what I did; for the first session, I did use the included lube sachet because I was lazy and couldn’t be bothered to go and grab my usual. I do appreciate the inclusion of it though; it’s just not my favourite formula. Anyway; after carefully opening up the FLIP and getting lube squirted into every nook and cranny of the sleeve, I closed it all up and thrust my cock deep inside. Immediately I did notice I was met with slightly less resistance than I have been than with previous FLIP textures. Without squeezing the sides, I could build up a fast rhythm that didn’t overwhelm my penis with sensation.
That is, until I squeezed the sides and introduced the suction. Oh dear lord, yes. As soon as I squished the sleeve; it clamped down on my cock (in a nice way) and now I was feeling every detail inside. It seemed to have a particularly firm grip around the entrance. I could still stroke, but the suction was making it slightly more difficult. But I didn’t care. The sleeve was working over my glans; it felt like there were loads of tongues just lashing away. I don’t even mind the noise any more, not when it feels this good.
The husband seemed to enjoy it too; he is a little thicker in girth than I am. Initially, I thought we might have a problem as we seemed to struggle to get his cock in the hole; as the entrance way does appear to be a tad smaller than in other models. But with a good coating of lube, he soon slipped right in and as he lay on his back, I slid the FLIP Zero Gravity up and down his dick, alternating a stroke with a good solid squeeze. “That feels amazing” he said. As someone who had found previous versions of the Zero to be a little on the snug side, he seemed to be enjoying this one a little better.
Clean-up and Maintenance
When it comes to clean-up, TENGA really have thought about it well. The way the FLIP Zero’s disassemble for cleaning is genius. Simply slide off the clip, open the case and rinse under running water. Then I’ll go in with some soap and my fingers to ensure all fluids are removed from all the different grooves inside the texture. Once it’s clean; I can leave it in the bathroom; using the clip as a drying stand. You don’t need to use any renewal powder; you can just close it all up and pop it back in the case ready for the next session.
Well it will come as no surprise to say that I liked this toy. Is it my favourite FLIP Zero? No, that honour still belongs to the Flip Zero EV; I think it’s going to take something drastic to remove that from my top TENGA spot. However, as FLIP’s go; the Gravity is pretty decent. The texture isn’t revolutionary, but for those girthier chaps may get better mileage from this sleeve than other FLIP variants; and that’s mainly down to the lower profile of the texture in the case.
Do you need this? Well, it depends. If this is potentially your first FLIP Zero purchase; go for it. Their build quality, design and intricate textures really do make it an attractive pleasure investment. Already own a different FLIP? Then you may not find this as exciting; there will come a point where the sleeves will start to feel pretty much the same; but I am somewhat of an obsessive collector – TENGA is like Pokémon to me. Gotta catch ’em all. And then put my dick in them. The FLIP… not the Pokémon. OK, I think it’s time to wrap this up… *shuffles away awkwardly*

TENGA FLIP Zero Gravity (White)
Pros: Lower profile texture might be better for those girth folk who have struggled in the past.
Cons: For a seasoned masturbator, it doesn’t offer anything majorly new.
Bottom Line: Another good quality masturbator that’s great if you’ve never tried a FLIP before; for those familiar, it still feels really nice but not sure there’s enough difference to make you want to switch from a previous model.
