How To Choose From The TENGA SPINNER Series

The TENGA SPINNER Series has attracted a global fanbase since its introduction in 2018. Since then, the SPINNER lineup has grown from its original three models. And, within this lineup, a number of firmnesses, details and diameters have been added in order to please just about anyone!

The SPINNER also won the Red Dot Award in 2019. Its unique form and functionality has gained worldwide praise.

With a larger array of SPINNERs to choose from, it can become a bit confusing to decide. Luckily, we have made this review of how to choose your SPINNER so you may find the best model suited for your pleasure.



If you are not familiar with the TENGA SPINNER be sure to read this introductory blog first on how to use the TENGA SPINNER. Here we will introduce the specifics of each SPINNER, the parameters we use to measure them, and how to pick the perfect SPINNER for you!


The popular TENGA SPINNER Series

Back in 2018, TENGA released the original three SPINNER Series: The TETRA, the HEXA and the SHELL.

Each TENGA SPINNER features an internal coil that twists upon insertion, delivering incredible sensations with every stroke. Moreover, the SPINNERs vary in three key factors: Firmness, Stimulation, and Sensation.

The popularity of the SPINNERs has grown so much that in 2020, an additional three SPINNER models were introduced to the collection: the PIXEL, the BEADS, and the BRICK, followed by special soft editions of these three.

The SPINNER Series products have a variety of different stimulations. Whether you like your SPINNER to have a good mix of Firmness and Stimulation, or need more Diameter with your sex toy, the SPINNER should definitely be a part of your self-pleasure collection.

But what do those measurements mean? Let’s take a look.


TENGA SPINNERs are varied and unique to fit your mood and style
Firmness, Stimulation, and Diameter are the parameters that define the SPINNER Series, but understanding what it means to you can be confusing. Each model offers unique qualities, allowing users to select based on their preferences or mood.
Firmness is one factor in deciding your SPINNER
First, there is Firmness. Some of the SPINNER designs offer a ‘firmer’ feel. A firmer feel can provide more stimulation, however a less firmer feel can provide a more enveloping feel around the shaft. As a comparison, the SHELL is designed with ‘fanned tiles with firm edges’ while the TETRA offers ‘geometric tiles with mild edges’. The SHELL may offer more direct stimulation, while the TETRA may feel more soft and enveloping.
stimulation is another factor in choosing your SPINNER

Next we have Stimulation. This is one of the more evenly ranked parameters, as each of the SPINNERs offers exceptional sensations. But as we see, for example, the TETRA is designed to be a little milder. In contrast, the SHELL has a firmer elastomer with more defined edges and can provide more stimulation.

Diameter can feel different depending on the Firmness

Perhaps the most potentially confusing parameter is Diameter. All of the TENGA SPINNERs have an insertion depth of approximately 17cm and an insertion width of approximately 5cm, however, the diagram may not fully convey what we mean in terms of diameter.

The bigger the diameter, the less constricting it is around the shaft. However, depending upon the firmness, the same diameter can feel different. Depending upon your style, more stimulating or more enveloping, diameter with firmness can make a bit of difference.


NOTE: For more specific details on any particular SPINNER, go to the TENGA Store and you will find more information on your favorite item.

Now that you understand a little more about how to read the levels we give to each SPINNER, let’s introduce you to each of the SPINNERs themselves.

The Original SPINNERs

SPINNER TETRA 01The TETRA features geometric tiles with mild edges. On the 3-way chart system, we see the TETRA ranks as follows:

SPINNER BRICK Special Soft EditionAnd finally, the BRICK Soft Edition goes all out with a spiral of bundled blocks that give delicate, supple sensations. The BRICK Soft Edition ranks as follows:

The BRICK Soft Edition: Softness Lv5, Stimulation Lv2.5, Diameter Lv2

Overall intensity of sensations (from lowest to highest softness): BRICK Soft Edition -> BEADS Soft Edition -> PIXEL Soft Edition
