How to choose a TENGA HOLE LOTION

Almost all of the TENGA sex toys require the use of a lotion or lubricant for a more comfortable experience, excluding disposable items such as the CUP Series which interiors come pre-lubricated. As such TENGA has a series of our own 4 lotions called the HOLE LOTION series. Each one of these lotions are specially formulated and designed for a different purpose and feel, but it can be a little difficult to understand when first looking which one to buy. Here’s an introduction to the HOLE LOTION series, and a few creative suggestions on how to use them!

For more information about the ingredients used in all our water-based lotions, please check out the individual product pages.



The TENGA HOLE LOTION is a series of four different sex toy lubricants that vary mostly in viscosity of the liquid. The four TENGA HOLE LOTIONs are the HOLE LOTION [MILD], HOLE LOTION [REAL], HOLE LOTION [WILD] and the HOLE LOTION [SOLID]. The WILD features the lowest thickness of lotion all the way up to the SOLID. All lotions can be used on all reusable TENGA sex toys, but there are subtle differences that can increase the sensations the user might experience. Let’s take a look at each of the lotions.


The HOLE LOTION [WILD] is the thinnest of the HOLE LOTIONs, for direct stimulation that gives a wild feeling. It is also the only HOLE LOTION that contains just a hint of menthol for an extra sensational feeling. This LOTION is recommended for those who don’t want to let the feeling of lubrication get in the way of feeling the intricate interior details of the sex toy you’re using it with. 

The next lotion is the HOLE LOTION [REAL]. Similar to the HOLE LOTION [WILD], but with a little more viscosity and no additional menthol. As the name suggests, the REAL LOTION is intended to give a more realistic feel to the lubrication. This LOTION is recommended for users who want to have a more authentic sensation while using their masturbator.

The HOLE LOTION [MILD] is the second strongest lotion in terms of viscosity but is still mild enough to provide a realistic sensation. The lubricant delicately envelopes the sex toy and gives a long lasting yet mild feeling for the user. This product is best used with the gentler products, for example the white variations of the FLIP 0 and FLIP ORB series.

Last but not least is the HOLE LOTION [SOLID]. The most viscous lubricant in the series, this lubricant was developed to allow the user to feel every solid edge of their sex toy while also offering long lasting lubrication. A great example of a product that works perfectly with the SOLID lotion is the FLIP HOLE SILVER, which features an interior decorated with stronger edges created for intense stimulation. With the SOLID lotion, none of the feeling of these firmer designs are lost in the lubrication. This product is best used with our stronger products, for example the STRONG or Black variations of the FLIP 0 and FLIP ORB series.

We also have a new, limited edition lotion; the HOLE LOTION [COOL]. With the same viscosity as HOLE LOTION [REAL], this lotion is infused with menthol for cooling sensations, the same as our COOL Series products.

Next we’ll look at how to use the HOLE LOTION in a basic way.

How to use the TENGA HOLE LOTION

The TENGA HOLE LOTION is designed to be simple and easy to use. Here’s a brief breakdown of how to use the lotion with your sex toy.


  1. Remove shrink wrapping of the HOLE LOTION.
  2. Remove the top cap of the HOLE LOTION. 
  3. If being used with a masturbator with an insertion point make sure to lubricate both the inside (being careful to not use too much) and the rim of the entry point.
  4. If being used with an exterior masturbator then use enough to lubricate the product as necessary.
  5. Make sure to replace the cap of the HOLE LOTION and store in a cool, dry location that’s not exposed to direct sunlight.

Suggestions for using the TENGA HOLE LOTION

The TENGA HOLE LOTION series is designed to be used with a product on its own, however one of the lesser known uses can be a combination of lotions for different and unique experiences.

For example, with the FLIP 0 and FLIP ORB series, why not try mixing and matching the lotions by using one lotion for the lower half of the product and a different lotion for the upper half? Here are a couple of suggestions:

Why not use the HOLE LOTION [WILD] on the lower half of a FLIP product for a smoother, menthol feeling on insertion with the [MILD] on the upper half for a slightly stronger sensation.

The FLIP can also be used to combine stronger and gentler stimulations. Use the [REAL] lotion on the lower half and insertion point and the [SOLID] on the upper half so the deeper the penetration, the stronger the sensations.

The HOLE LOTION series can be explored in this way to get that extra experience out of your sex toys, so be creative!


Hopefully this guide helps you to understand which one of the HOLE LOTION series may fit what you are looking for from a lubricant. Also with our extra suggestions, maybe enjoy your TENGA products in a completely different way, whether it’s your first use or your fiftieth!
