Supercharged Pleasure for Couples: A Unique Sex Toy Experience
By Lily Chambers
Disclaimer: I received samples of the products mentioned hereafter to review for SDC.com. I was not directly compensated for this review... except, of course, for the great sex!
My husband Brett and I have a decent-sized variety of sex toys in our little chest of goodies. I was especially excited to receive the award-winning Tenuto from MysteryVibe. I figured it seemed to be designed more so for his pleasure as opposed to mine… or so I thought!
I’d heard about MysteryVibe before because they’ve been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, and other publications. Plus, MysteryVibe and their Tenuto toy have also won a bunch of awards over the last few years. So we were looking forward to putting our new toy to the test!
We had so much fun with the Tenuto that we decided to review this toy together. Here’s our personal experience experimenting with this innovative gadget.
What exactly is The Tenuto, anyway?
MysteryVibe’s Tenuto is a smart vibrator designed with male pleasure in mind… but Lily also benefited from its features. With six individual motors, every inch of Tenuto feels alive as it enhances pleasure. Powerful vibrations pulsated from my penis to my perineum, and as we had sex, also vibrated on her clitoris and labia. So I could definitely use the Tenuto for solo play or couples play, and I love having that flexibility.
The Tenuto is designed with an app, which we used to allow me to be in control as he wore the toy. (And that worked out ecstatically well for me when I was on top!) While the Tenuto works well without the app, I felt that being able to control the device definitely added to both of our excitement. The app comes with preset vibration patterns and the option to create your own, so we got creative! The Tenuto’s six motors are all adjustable to multiple vibration patterns, so we had a wide variety of options to explore varying waves of pleasure.
After charging the Tenuto (which is conveniently USB-rechargeable, so it doesn’t need batteries), we downloaded the app and followed the easy 2- step instructions for connecting the app to the toy.
The app required a little time to experiment with all the features, but that’s part of the fun! We recommend trying out the app before you start playing, so you can get the kinks out before you, you know, get the kinks out.
Along with the Tenuto, we received the Tenuto Playcards that helped us begin our exploration. The playcards illustrated 16 positions for solo and couples play and included a few creative options that ignited our imagination.
The Tenuto itself was soft and flexible. It was comfortable to put on and stayed on without moving around much, even while we switched positions.
Our Favorite Sex Positions We Tried With Tenuto
We tested out some of these moves, which were included in MysteryVibe’s Tenuto Playcards:
1. Smart Domination: Using the app, Lily controlled the Tenuto and played with the different settings while I tried to control my orgasm.
2. Pump It Up: Lily picked a vibration pattern and let the Tenuto rest on my perineum and balls while stroking my penis. This is perfect for those who are fans of edging play.
3. Rocket Man: What it sounds like. Lily turned the vibe all the way up, and I blasted off!
4. Mission-ary Possible: I took control as Lily laid back to let me thrust into her at my own pace. This position connected with both of our pleasure zones and made missionary even more exciting than ever.
5. The Succumbing: Much like the Smart Domination position, but for this one, Lily tied me up and took full control of my pleasure.
Our Tenuto Impression
My favorite part of playing with the Tenuto was exploring the different vibes and watching him play solo. Using the Tenuto allowed us to explore a unique range of positions while also intensifying the more familiar positions we already enjoy as part of our repertoire. I was pleasantly surprised by how deeply I felt the vibes, even though the toy wasn’t physically inside of me. Definitely a MUST-HAVE in your toy box. You know what they say — “Variety is the spice of life!”
I gotta say, I was a little intimidated when I first held the Tenuto. My wife told me it was similar to a cock ring, and yes, it did restrict blood flow to my penis to give me a longer-lasting, stronger erection. But while describing it as a cock ring is great when explaining the Tenuto to someone who hasn’t used it, this toy is truly in a category by itself. I’ve never really used a toy for solo play, but it enhanced the sensation by stimulating my perineum in a way I’ve never experienced. This toy definitely spiced up our sex life and brought a lot of novelty to our relationship!
