How To Choose From The TENGA FLIP Series

With so many different varieties of the FLIP Series to choose from it can be a little confusing which one might be the ‘best’ choice for you. Hopefully, this guide will help you understand the differences a little better and figure out which FLIP you should treat yourself to!


As one of the most popular reusable TENGA products globally, there is a lot of interest in the TENGA FLIP series. There is also a LOT of variety to be found, from the FLIP 0 (not to mention the FLIP 0 EV!), the FLIP HOLE to the FLIP ORB

A Brief Intro To The TENGA FLIP

The FLIP Series was designed for three main reasons:

1) They flip open for easy lubing and washing

The FLIP Series pioneered male sex toys in their ease of cleaning. A lot of sex toys before the FLIP Series were hard to clean, took a lot of time to clean or were just irritating to keep hygienic. The FLIP Series solved all that with their innovative flip design.

2) They offer the most intricate internal details of all TENGA products (and on the market!)

Every TENGA product has its unique selling point, but each of the FLIP Series is designed to have some of the most intricate interior details of all the TENGA products. This is due to the high-level moulding technology used by TENGA.

3) TENGA FLIP Series products all offer some variation of stimulation strength among the series

All of the FLIP Series products have a variety of different stimulations within their series. From a more ‘gentle’ sensation to a firmer, stronger stimulation, you can find the best stimulation strength for yourself within each of the FLIP Series.

What’s The Main Differences Between The FLIP Series? 

Each of the FLIP Series is designed to offer a different experience, with each product within that series also offering slightly different sensations thanks to their unique internal designs. To better understand the differences it’s best to look at the main strengths behind each of the Series.


The FLIP HOLE series is the largest of all the FLIP Series of products, with four different items to choose from. It was also the pioneer in products that can be opened which changed the game in terms of hygiene. Many male sex toys before the FLIP HOLE tended to be difficult, annoying or take ages to clean. The first of the FLIP Series, although older in design than the other two, addressed this issue by being able to open up for easy cleaning and drying, and also brought a whole new world of sensations into the mix! 

The key feature of the series is the three ‘buttons’ on each unit. These buttons can be pressed while using the device to add additional pressure where the user wants it. The FLIP HOLE is also known as a product that can easily be used with men who experience difficulties in becoming erect, with the flip design allowing the user to start using the product before gaining a full erection by closing the product after placing their penis inside, rather than inserting into an already closed item.


The FLIP ORB contains firm, flexible orbs encased in a soft elastomer that shift and ripple as you pass through. The ORBs are designed to flex and move as you insert, creating a layered stimulation for a completely new sensation different to others in the FLIP Series!

Another key feature of the FLIP ORB is that it is the first hourglass-shaped item in the FLIP series, with a cap instead of the slide arms seen in some of the other series. This shape makes the product easier to hold and gives the user a satisfying squeeze mid-way through inserting!


The TENGA FLIP 0 continues to be one of the most popular reusable sex toys in the TENGA male masturbation range. Utilizing the best materials and latest production technology, the FLIP 0 also features pioneering FLIP-open function that keeps the item hygienic for multiple uses. The FLIP 0 is available in both White and Black versions. The Black version offers stronger materials and sensations than the White, as well as a modified interior design to increase stimulation. It's also important to note the FLIP 0 pioneered the hinge being at the insertion point of the toy, meaning three things.

  • Less leakage from lubricants
  • Stronger suction produced
  • A generally better stimulation and sensation

TENGA also has the FLIP 0 EV (Electronic Vibration) which offers an additional experience through extra electronic vibrating stimuli.

What Kind Of Sensations The FLIP Series Offers.

Now that you understand a little more about the key features of each of the FLIP Series, what defines them is their internal details and designs and material firmness. This is where the real decision making comes in.

FLIP HOLE internal features

Each of the FLIP HOLEs also has their own distinctive internal details which can be used to gauge which one might be right for you.


The FLIP HOLE and FLIP HOLE Black are made of slightly differing materials, with the internal features of the Black creating a naturally more intense stimulation than that of the FLIP HOLE

The FLIP HOLE Silver and Red’s internal designs differ greatly from the FLIP HOLE and Black versions. Each has a similarly impressive set of structures designed to give the user exciting stimulation.

FLIP ORB Internal features


The FLIP ORB (white) and the FLIP ORB Strong (black) main differences come from the firm, flexible orbs and surrounding sleeve material. While the FLIP ORB BLUE RUSH and ORANGE CRASH offer the standard stimulation and firmness of a FLIP Series product, the FLIP ORB STRONG BLUE RUSH and STRONG ORANGE CRASH take their firmness to a whole new level with ORBs and a sleeve material designed to give, as the name implies, a stronger stimulation for the user.

It also depends on what stimulation you'd like. The FLIP ORB BLUE RUSH and FLIP ORB STRONG BLUE RUSH have ORBs designed to give a ricocheting feeling as you penetrate. The ORANGE CRASH and STRONG ORANGE CRASH however stimulate the top and bottom of the penis.

FLIP 0/ FLIP 0 EV Internal features

The FLIP 0 and FLIP 0 Black both feature TENGA's most intricate internal details yet for amazing stimulation, with the FLIP 0 being the standard stimulation and once again the black casing of the FLIP 0 Black indicating the stronger, firmer feeling,


The FLIP 0 EV and FLIP 0 EV Black take the FLIP 0 and the entire FLIP Series to a whole new level with vibrating sensations. Both of these sex toys contain dual vibration cores which, when activated gives rumbling vibrations from within the sleeve material that brings the user a whole new world of stimulation.

Still can’t choose? Here’s our suggestions.

Still not sure what to buy? Here’s what the TENGA team would suggest. For all-around quality in both durability and stimulation, the FLIP 0 is second to none. It may be one of TENGAs most expensive products, but the satisfaction rate is well worth it. Plus it can be surprisingly versatile. Why not try buying a couple of different HOLE LOTIONs and try using both in the FLIP 0 at the same time for a unique experience. We’d recommend the HOLE LOTION Wild and HOLE LOTION Solid for an interesting lubrication mix! 

If a stronger stimulation is more your thing then we’d recommend trying out the FLIP 0 Black. As satisfying as the FLIP 0, but with a stronger edge to it, the FLIP 0 Black is well worth a shot.

If you're interested in the FLIP HOLE series, this offers the cheapest price point to give the FLIP Series a try and with 4 different stimulations. As for the FLIP ORB series, the specific functions of the ORBs give the product a unique sensation as your penis navigates upon insertion. If this sounds interesting, the FLIP ORB might be for you.

Ultimately though, if any of the above FLIP Series have grabbed your attention, whether it be for the features or the internal details, all of the FLIP Series are great in their own way.
