Intimate Grip Masturbator

The packaging

The Sinclair Institute Select Intimate Grip Masturbator is a male masturbation toy sold by Better Sex and produced by the Sinclair Institute line. It’s six inches long, and since it’s made from Cyberskin, it’s super stretchy and intended to fit a variety of penis sizes. The neat thing about this masturbator is that it’s a two-sided one. Each side, while sharing the same inner texture, has a different “entry” hole – one’s tighter and one’s looser. It honestly ends up looking like a twister if you look through the clear material at the inside.

The packaging is one of my favorite things about the Sinclair Institute Select products. The packaging is pure white and very professional looking with a nice little plastic “window” in the front of the box that displays the product. The packaging is really neat to open, and it actually seals tightly with a magnet on the front panel. That means that it’s extremely easy to open, and since the box actually seals really easily, I could easily see using this as storage for the stroker when not in use. It’s what we do with it.

Before I go on, I want to address the use and caretaking of this male masturbator. Since it’s made of cyberskin and feels flexible, you should use water-based lubricant with it. The silicone-based lubricant could end up harming the material. For storage, we choose to keep it in the box. To clean it, the box recommends antibacterial soap and water and then patting it dry afterwards. To keep the material feeling new, it recommends using the Renew freshener product. I recommend you store it in a way that its protected because the sleeve’s material tends to pick up lots of little fuzzies from the environment. We keep ours in the original box, but the packaging recommends you keep it in a plastic bag with a bit of Renew spritzed on it.

Straight out of the package, the masturbation sleeve has no scent at all. Compared to other male masturbators, this one presents itself nicely and with care and professionalism. It looks fun to use straight out of the package, and it doesn’t look threatening at all. Since I’m trying to get the boyfriend to be more comfortable with male masturbation sleeves, this was definitely a plus-side for us. Considering that we received a Fleshlight around the same time, the Intimate Grip Masturbator looks much less threatening and easy to use.

Showing the inner ridging texture

So what is the texture on the inside? Well, like stated before, it pretty much looks like a little twisted on the inside. It just basically has ribs on the inside of the stroker – not much for exciting textures, but it presents itself well. As stated before, this masturbator is two-sided and you can slide in through either end – one’s tighter and the other’s looser. The outside of the stroker is covered in little “texture dots” that make it much easier to grasp when the masturbation sleeve is covered in lubricant.

To use the masturbator, you just have to lubricate yourself with some water-based lubricant then pour some of the lubricant into the body of the toy itself. Since it has two open holes, I’d recommend you try to keep the toy at a slight angle when doing it unless you want lubricant all over the floor. Once both the penis and the sex toy are lubricated, it can be used.

So how does it feel during use? Well, our biggest problem was that it seemed almost too tight – even on the loose end. If not held down with his other free hand during use, this masturbator would just slide straight off of him without a second’s thought – even after multiple tries with different amounts of lubricant. He also found that it was lacking a bit in pressure which was frustrating for him. He wanted more pressure on the inside of the sleeve, but because of the hole on the opposite end, it was near-impossible. What he ended up doing was using the hand that was holding it on to end up covering the hole at the end to add pressure as well.

Aside from those problems, how did it end up feeling for him? He liked the way the ribs felt during use and liked the side-sided aspect of it. He says it honestly didn’t feel that tight , but it still felt pleasurable. Because of how the holes were situated, you could either have it tight around the head or around the base. He says it doesn’t feel anything like actually having sex, but it does have a unique pleasurable experience to it. Sometimes he feels it can get too strong and pleasurable to continue at that pace, but you just have to slow down. He enjoys that it’s see-through and you can see inside of it when you’re playing, but he says he most likely won’t be able to finish with it, and he hasn’t been able to thus far. However, he says it’s a great sensation that feels nice for foreplay.

During use, we found it did have a sound though. It sounds really squishy and sounds mostly like lubricant “moving” around. It’s not a huge problem, but if you have a small room, it could be heard through a closed door unless you are careful. Just something to consider if being discreet is a concern.

For the most part, this is now our favorite masturbation sleeve at this point in time. He hasn’t used too many sleeves yet – just a Sex in a Can from Fleshlight and a Travel-Sized Jackmaster, but compared to those, he prefers this one. I think it still has some faults, but he does enjoy using it. This male masturbators is sold on this adult sex toy store, so pick up the Sinclair Institute Select Intimate Grip Masturbator.
