Tenga Spinner Review [2021]: Is It Worth The Price?

Tenga has tried its best to produce amazing toys over the years. The Tenga Spinner series is a great toy coming with a fair price for its performance.

Tenga Spinner Review [2020]: Is It Worth The Price?

The Good | The Tenga Spinner series is a creatively made toy. They have added into them a new coil technology that enhances the sensations during use with three different internal textures. 

The Bad | Although Tenga has delivered a relatively great toy for a low price here, you will get much disappointment if you want something that will last you a long while. Check out our guide on the best Tenga egg instead.

The Bottom Line | It is one of the cheapest masturbators in the market currently, and comes from a lineage of greatness. While I think they have done an outstanding job on the coil technology, I figure a longer lifespan would not hurt.

The Bottom Line | It’s one of the highest quality penis sleeves available in the market. If expectations and measurements are right, you’ll have plenty of fun with increased size and ED help.

In this Tenga Spinner review, I am going to detail my general experience these sex toys. I am going to specifically talk on the Tenga Shell 03 release (it’s what I got).

There’s a total of 3 different versions namely the Tenga Tetra 01, Tenga Shell 03, and the Tenga Hexa 02 spinners.

I am going to explain their coil technology, functionality, and price (and where to buy them too).

I will provide you a comparative table that will help you decide which of the three series might be a good pick for you. 

We will also get to see if it is the best pick and whether there are other better alternatives that get the job done.

Worth noting:

  1. The Tenga spinners all come in one size.
  2. They have different internal surface feel (as I’ll show in a table further down in the article).
  3. They come with a free lube sample and a drying stand.

Tenga Spinner Review: Shell 03 Specs Overview

Let us take a look at the specific details:


The Tenga Spinner series comes in one universal size. But that should not serve as an immediate turn off because its material allows it to stretch when using.

The average dimension for my Tenga Shell 03 spinner is 5.5” x 1.8” x 5”.


The Tenga Shell 03 is primarily made from the TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) material that aims to replicate the vagina. 

They have also put in place inside a plastic spiral coil that moves around your penis when you are rubbing one out.


I tried my Shell 03 series a couple of times. I was a lone ranger in a few runs and with my girl all the other times. Depending on how you use it, you can achieve a climax anywhere from 4-10 minutes.

Once you’ve gotten a good boner, just lube up the inner tube and slide your shaft in. It’s pretty easy to use.

I also noticed a nice addition of a cool, transparent drying stand for the after wash inside the package.

Price, Where To Buy

All the Tenga variations in this series go at a retail price of $26.97 – $27.00 dollars. If you are coming from a region that requires shipping, then you might incur extra charges because of the shipping cost.

Of course, this could vary depending on the region you’re making your order from.

The price here really is affordable, but I must remind you that you are not making a lifetime purchase.

The toy only works for a short while before you go back to default – the sacred lotion and magic fingers!

To get yourself one of these toys, check:

  • Shevibe
  • Lovehoney (but they have only Spinner Shell version)

Also, I must warn you NOT TO BUY Amazon sex toys – the chances you will be getting counterfeit toys are too high.

Before you make any purchase, look at these three models and their specs and decide what you might want. 

Take a look at the table below:

Tenga Spinner Tetra 01BlueGeometric Tiles with Mild Edges5.5 x 1.8 x 5
Tenga Spinner Hexa 02RedHexagonal Tiles with Pointed Edges5.5 x 1.8 x 5
Tenga Spinner Shell 03YellowFanned Tiles with Firm Edges5.5 x 1.8 x 5

Design & features: texture and firmness

I have the Tenga Spinner Shell 03 in my possession. Every toy under this model comes in the yellow color for distinction from the rest (Tetra and Hexa).

The plastic coil inside is mobile and they can hold your penis very tight. Perhaps even too tight if you are not careful with the amount of pressure you apply when masturbating.

Also, the tiles inside give a nice vaginal experience.

Its body has one hella grip and combined with the ridge-like inside surface, you can do yourself a decent climax..

The video below might give you a clear idea of what the Tenga Spinners look like.

In Use: How Does It Feel Like?

Tenga is always working to produce great toys that are greater than their previous release. 

You have to give it to them… I mean, the coil spiralling stuff is rocket genius. Kudos to their design team! 

And the fact that it stretches on a solid stiff also scores it extra points.

I got my Tenga in a not-too-telling package. Inside was the Shell 03 spinner which was neatly wrapped in a bubble wrap.

The plastic casing that comes with the spinner acts as a protective casing as well as a storage. The Shell 03 spinner has a strip that you need to peel down to unveil it. It doubles up as a tamper-proof.

Get this: Tenga has placed a free sample lube in the tube for your first use – which I thought is a smooth move.

Getting down to business:

I have to say that the Shell 03 spinner gave me quite a nice time. I have to be honest, I was not expecting it. The fact that it’s so cheap was kind of a red flag to me. I can say it proved me wrong, and rubbed me right.

I loved how it replicates the real action by producing the same sucking sound when shifting your shaft inside there. The coil circles in motion where your hand is not holding and is a satisfying technology on your dick.

I am a bit hung and was quite concerned whether this little flower was gonna take in my penis. So, you can imagine my excitement when I saw this babez opening up wide and welcoming me as I leveled up.

One thing that worried me though is how thin the tube’s wall is. When you get things heated up, you certainly notice that the spiral coil inside starts to brush up against your peen. This gave me a rather ‘spiky’ sensation… Like getting head from a gator. 

So, watch out for that!

How Easy To Clean & Durability

The fact that Tenga spinners are TPE-type makes it easy to clean. I give mine a nice cleaning using warm water and mild soaps. I can’t say there’s any complaint to that end. 

You can also use your preferred toy-cleaning soaps if you don’t trust the first option. 

An important detail to share here is that this model does not turn inside-out. So, you have to be thorough when cleaning inside.

Don’t forget that I also mentioned it has a drying stand! After washing your toy, place it upside-down in this stand and it will drip dry undisturbed. If you ask me, I’d say that was very thoughtful of Tenga.

On the negative side though, it’s not meant for long-term use. Over time, I noticed air bubbles accumulating at either ends of the tube and this affected the suction significantly.

Though I popped them to continue using, I still fought to prevent my ding-dong from losing its skin cover from the exposed coil.

Again, definitely not long-term.

Would I Recommend it? If so, to whom?

Yes, I can recommend it, but only for short-term use.

You can’t complain much about its durability considering the price it goes for. Also when using, be cautious to notice when the material starts wearing out to stop injuring yourself.

It is a fair deal, but you could do better.

Who is it for?

  • Guys looking for seasonal thrills.
  • Hardcore hedonists who like it rough.
  • If you have a penis that’s not too sensitive to withstand the intensity.

Who is it not for?

  • Guys looking for a long-term companion.
  • Guys with a sensitive penis.

What do Other People think About It?

Right! We did a little snooping around of some independent reviews of users who’ve had experiences with the Tenga product.

Watch what INCENDIUM reviewed on this youtube video.

Here’s another review from a Reddit user toyjoyman:

“It feels similar to other Tenga eggs, that material is soft and very stretchy but it has a solidness to it because of the metal rings that function as the spinning component. I’m slightly longer than the max length the thing can accommodate, but it does feel pretty similar to something like a Tenga egg mixed with a bit of a flip hole type thing.

The spinning aspect of the toy gives your penis the sensation that you are pulling out and entering a longer texture as there is a quicker movement with less length.

Overall it seems like a nice toy to use every now and then and I’d recommend it to anyone wanting something semi cheap and is well designed.”



What if the above menu ain’t your type of buffet? 

I get it if anyone could have second thoughts about making this purchase. What with its short lifespan and all…

As an alternative, I’d recommend you check out the higher tier Tenga Flip Hole Black instead. It is a top vibrating model with soft internal textures to escalate your masturbation.

What’s better is that it opens for cleaning and easy to apply lube.

Conclusion: Final Thoughts

The Tenga Spinner series is an amazing invention that’s right for its price. Its small size is awesome and is concealable.

Adding the coil in its final touch is also a much appreciated move.

But I still reiterate that if you’d want a durable masturbator, then you’re probably well off with the Tenga Flip Hole Black, or check out our Tenga 3D review.
