As one of the most popular reusable TENGA products globally, the TENGA SPINNER series is well known and loved by fans of TENGA. At the start there were only 3 SPINNERs in this series, but it has now increased to an amazing 9 SPINNERs! Each of the SPINNERs is rated by a diagram on the individual SPINNER's Firmness, Stimulation and Diameter. This can seem confusing at first, but don’t worry, we’ll cover their meanings below.
If you don’t know much about the TENGA SPINNER be sure to read this introductory blog here first, about how to use the TENGA SPINNER. Here we’re instead going to introduce you to the specifics of each SPINNER, the levels we use to measure them, and how to pick the perfect SPINNER for you!
A Brief Intro To The TENGA SPINNER
Each of the TENGA SPINNERs has an internal coil that makes the SPINNER twist as you insert, sending unbelievable sensations with each stroke. Not only that, but each of the SPINNERs are ranked on three factors; Firmness, Stimulation, and Sensation.
All of the SPINNER Series products have a variety of different stimulations within their series. Whether you like your SPINNER to have a good mix of Firmness and Stimulation, or need more Diameter with your sex toy, at least one of the SPINNERs is guaranteed to satisfy.
But what do those measurements mean? Let’s take a quick look.
What Do The Levels Of The SPINNER Series Mean?
Firmness, stimulation, and diameter are the parameters by which the SPINNER series are marked against, but it can be confusing to know which each of them means.
Firstly we have firmness. This is one of the more obvious ones. Some of the SPINNER designs lend themselves to a ‘firmer’ feel. More specifically, the SHELL is designed to have ‘fanned tiles with firm edges’ while the TETRA offers ‘geometric tiles with mild edges’. So in this example, it’s clear the SHELL would be the firmer of the two.
Next we have stimulation. This once again is a little easier to understand. Which of the SPINNERs offers just a little bit more stimulation than the others. It’s also one of the more evenly ranked, as each of the SPINNERs offers exceptional sensations. As before though, the TETRA is designed to be a little milder.
Lastly, the most potentially confusing parameter, diameter. All of the TENGA SPINNERs have an insertion depth of approx. 17cm and an insertion width of approx. 5cm, however, this isn’t quite what we mean. In this case, the higher number means the bigger the diameter, or simply put, the less tight it is.
What Are The Differences Between The SPINNER Series?
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.
The Original SPINNERs
- The TETRA has: Firmness Lv3, Stimulation Lv3, Diameter Lv4.5
- The HEXA has: Firmness Lv4, Stimulation Lv4, Diameter Lv3.5
- The SHELL has: Firmness Lv4.5, Stimulation Lv4, Diameter Lv3
If we were to rank the original SPINNERs we can see that the TETRA 01 has the most gentle sensations, and they increase in intensity from the HEXA 02 to the SHELL 03, which is the firmest, tightest and has the boldest internal details of all the SPINNERs.
So how about the New SPINNERs? Let’s take a look!
The New SPINNERs
- The PIXEL has: Firmness Lv3.5, Stimulation Lv2, Diameter Lv5
- The BEADS has: Firmness Lv2.5, Stimulation Lv4.5, Diameter Lv3
- The BRICK has: Firmness Lv2, Stimulation Lv5, Diameter Lv2
And that’s a more in-depth look at the New SPINNERs! If we were to compare them we can see that the PIXEL 04 has gentle sensations similar to the TETRA, and they increase in intensity again from the BEADS 05 to the BRICK 04 being the most intense.
Soft SPINNER Collection
Lastly, we have the most recent set of additions to the SPINNER lineup, the Soft SPINNER Collection, each of which offers a special softer material for a more luxurious spinning sensation. There is one notable difference with this Collection, with the Firmness ranking being instead replaced with the more appropriate Softness rating.
The first of the Soft SPINNERs is the PIXEL Soft Edition. Much like the original PIXEL, this offers a much more delicate spiral of encompassing pixel-like nodes. The Soft SPINNERs are also ranked on the same levels, and so PIXEL Soft Edition ranks up like this:
- The PIXEL Soft Edition has: Softness Lv3.5, Stimulation Lv1, Diameter Lv5
Next up is the BEADS Soft Edition. The sequence of BEADS Soft Edition offers is a gentle spiral of stimulating spheres for an undulating experience. The BEADS Soft Edition can be summarized as follows:
- The BEADS Soft Edition has: Softness Lv5, Stimulation Lv2, Diameter Lv3
This means we end our summary with the BRICK Soft Edition. The BRICK Soft Edition goes all out with a spiral of bundled blocks that give delicate, supple sensations. This means the BRICK ranks as follows:
- The BRICK Soft Edition has: Softness Lv5, Stimulation Lv2.5, Diameter Lv2
For this one we’ll be giving an overall ranking based on firstly, Softness, followed by Stimulation as the second criteria. With that in mind, the Soft Edition SPINNERs rank against each other as follows.
Now we know how all six SPINNERs stack up, here’s a quick cheat sheet to make an overall comparison easier.
Still can’t choose? Here’s our suggestions.
Still not sure what to buy? Here’s what the TENGA team would suggest. For a beginner SPINNER if you’re still not sure, the TETRA 01 is a safe bet.
If a stronger stimulation is more your thing then we’d recommend trying out the BRICK 06 for the stronger, firmer sensations.
As for a gentler experience, we’d recommend the BEADS Soft Edition for a well-rounded, soft stimulation.
Ultimately though, this is exactly what the level system was built for. As confusing as it can be to begin with, once you know what you’re looking for, the level system can help guide you to the SPINNER that has the perfect sensation for you.
