TENGA Hole Lotions – A Comparative Review.

by LSB

If you have previously read any of my other Tenga posts, you’ll already know how much my OH loves Tenga lube. If you haven’t read them well let me start by first giving you a little back round info.

My OH hates lube. Well I guess that statement is slightly incorrect now – hated all lube, until now (or is that then?). When we reviewed the Twists and then Flip Zero, we had a break through! Tenga supply the ‘Real’ version of their lubes with those toys and he loved it. Well, he loves it. Tenga reached out and asked if we would be interested in testing out the whole range – yes, there is a range, and we jumped at the chance. Both very excited to see what was going to arrive.

Truth be told neither of us were aware Tenga had created so many hole lotions. Four different bottles arrived testing, each have different colours and are all capable of different things.


* Solid * (silver)

* Mild * (White)

* Wild * (Black)

* Real *  (Red)


Aptly named ‘Hole lotions’, these Tenga lotions are designed to lubricate whatever ‘hole’ you decided to lube up. The design of the bottle is rather ingenious – its ergonomic design means no product goes to waste. This product is usually used on masturbators which given many of their styles it is rather hard to see where you are aiming the product. The nozzle on these bottles means you can direct exactly where you put it and you can actually insert the nozzle into the masturbator to prevent spillages. They are rather awesome in my opinion.



Which of the Tenga Hole Lotions is for you?


I’ve added in the descriptions of each Tenga Hole Lotions direct from the Tenga website. Please note – these are being added in while I am writing the review and have never been seen/ read them previously.

TENGA Hole LotionsSolid: (silver)


“Silver (SOLID) is a lotion that lets you feel the internal stimulations without sticky residue.”



I’m starting with Solid because it was his less favourite of the lot. The Tenga website claims it doesn’t have a sticky residue yet he feels it did. He said it dries up quickly in use, goes tacky but strangely still feels good. The product itself is really thick and when applied stays put. Feels good in use but needs reapplication often or re-hydrating.



Mild: (White)TENGA Hole Lotions


“White (MILD) is a thick lotion that delivers a softly wrapped feeling.”




Tenga claim the Mild will give a softly wrapped feeling and in my notes, my OH said the mild feels uber realistic. It really replicates natural wetness. It feels a lot slippier in use than the Real, which is his favourite. The down fall is it dries out quicker than the Red so this is why it hasn’t claimed the top spot. The lube isn’t a thick as the solid but thicker than the Real. Imagine a lava lamp flowing – kinda slow, gloopy, mesmerizing. Watching the Mild move as I turn it up and down has a similar effect.


TENGA Hole LotionsWild: (Black)


“Black (WILD) is a lubricant consisting of menthol to produce a refreshing experience.”




He loves menthol in general so when I spotted a menthol version had arrived , I was pretty excited to see his reaction. I never told him it was a tingly lube first time he used it and watching his face while he explained it was hot n’ cold simultaneously was rather awesome. He loves the Wild hole lotion. It stays slippy and feels really good to jack off, regardless if it is a toy or a hand he is using.

This lube is the only one I tasted because I personally love oral while using menthol lube as they really heighten the sensations experienced in my opinion. I found the menthol flavoring pleasant – quite sweet. I experienced a tingly sensation in my mouth once my tongue hit the product, mild but quite nice. While I gave him head – he continued to enjoy the heightened sensations the menthol produced. This shows longevity of the product. I was afraid I might ‘wash’ away the product with my mouth. Quite a runny product – very slightly thicker than massage oil and it still maintains the stringy aesthetic the other versions have.

Real: (Red)


TENGA Hole Lotions



“Red (REAL) provides a sense of moisture that isn’t too sticky.”



Still the reigning champ – the Real does exactly what it says on the tin! It has the ability to regulate itself up to body temps so quickly you don’t feel the coldness for the lube for too long. Mimics a woman’s natural wetness like no other. The stringy viscosity wraps around him in use to make his play time feel as realistic as it could possibly feel. It is slightly thinner than the Mild lube and even during application you see how stringy it is. As the description says it’s not too sticky – in fact this version is the least stickiest out of the lot! A little goes a long way so a bottle would last for aggggges!

Doesn’t dry out in use, maintains texture and thickness throughout use. Go to play time lube regardless of which toy he uses.

Purchase the Real lotion here



Please note : All lubes have high glycerin levels so while they are awesome for him – I make him wash it off before PIV as I wouldn’t risk getting a fungal infection.


The TENGA Hole Lotions were sent to me from TENGA in exchange for an honest and impartial review – this however in no way changes my opinion on the item. What I honestly think, you read!  All images displayed of TENGA Hole Lotions are taken by myself!

Interesting review. Thanks, I would love to try the Wild… and of course the Real. I remember on occasion masturbating with Campho-phenique added to some lube, I had forgotten about that. It was a pleasant sensation.

They are rather awesome lubes considering how much he hated lube previously. Regards the Campo stuff – not sure I’d recommend that on your delicate bits x

Do you have any recommendation for alternative lube to Tenga hole lotion?
I’d rather feel safer with Amazon’s reviews higher than 4 and hundreds of them.

Hi there,

It really depends on what you want to use the lube for really. The TENGA real lotion is very realistic feeling texture and is awesome for strokers etc. Sliquid Sassy is awesome too as it is great for anal play and as it’s water based can be used for all toys too.

Why do you think that you can get a fungal infection from Tenga lube

LSB August 13, 2018 - 6:49 pm

Hi there,

I don’t think the lube directly will give me a fungal infection but they have a high glycerine content which is known to increase chances of getting a fungal infection so, therefore, I myself opt for a lube which doesn’t have glycerine in it just to be safe!
