Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring Review

First up, a confession. When I heard that Hot Octopuss were bringing out some new sex toys, I was very excited. They have proven their worth in both the sex toy industry and with customers, so new products were definitely an intriguing prospect. They’re the creators of the multi award-winning PULSE penis strokers and the tap-happy Queen Bee. So what’s to confess? Their new products were both cock rings. I don’t have a great history with vibrating cock rings, so I went from excited to blasé very quickly. Still, I agreed to test and review the new Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring. You never know, right? Long story short: my partner and I are certainly happy we gave it a go.

Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring Review

There are two versions of the new Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring. The one I’m testing and reviewing in this feature (£49), and the Hot Octopuss ATOM Plus (£69) which has a slightly different design. It has two integrated motors -rather than the one the ATOM has- and a shape designed to provide perineum stimulation during wear.

What’s In The Box

The Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring box looks modern and sophisticated with silvery high-shine finish and clear description of the product within. The design follows the rest of the Hot Octopuss collection and will be instantly recognisable to fans.

Inside, you get the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring, charging lead, storage pouch and an instruction manual.

Instruction Manual

The Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring instruction manual gives you all the information you need about the product:

First Impressions

At first I was surprised at the size of the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring, then I realised it’s not actually that much bigger than standard vibrating cock rings. It’s just that the part which vibrates is so prominent and wide. This was a good sign; previous bad experiences with vibrating cock rings has been due to not getting an ongoing connection with the vibrating area during sex with my partner.

The Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring measures 3.25 inches in height and 2.5 inches width approximately and by my own measurements. It’s made of velvety feel silicone with the Hot Octopuss script logo embossed into the raised area of material on the prominent vibrating portion. The Hot Octopuss crown logo is found on the silver band curving around the top of the ring, and this metallic ABS area lends an additional air of luxury and sophistication to the product.

Charging Up

Charging up the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring is easy. Just press the jackpin end of the included lead into the hole under the + on the side of the ring, then the other end into any USB port. You could also use a USB to mains adaptor if you have one.

A red LED glows while you’re charging it which turns to white when the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring is fully charged.

Operation

It took me quite a while to figure out how to switch on the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring – I guess that’ll teach me to try and figure toys out without reading the instruction manual. I thought you’d press the + button to switch it on, and I was pressing and pressing with no luck, thinking it must be in a travel-lock mode. Actually, you press the raised dimple just beneath the + symbol (on the black silicone) for a couple of seconds, then the vibrations start up.

Once the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring is on, you can use the + and – buttons on the metallic area to each side of the ring to raise or lower vibration intensity.

Press the raised silicone dimple quickly to move to a different vibrating setting.

Press and hold that raised silicone dimple for a couple of seconds again when you want to switch off.

Settings

There are five different vibrating settings available with the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring:

  1. Constant vibration
  2. Pulse
  3. Oscillating
  4. Faster oscillation
  5. Dash-dash dot-dot-dot pulse

When you switch the ATOM ring off then back on, it will begin at the first setting again.

How It Feels

Upon turning the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring on for the first time I was surprised at how deep, powerful and rumbly the vibrations from the motor are. It’s a larger motor than is usually housed in cock rings, for sure – the wide and prominent area is testament to that. And that was on the lowest level!

I was excited to see how the ATOM would perform during both solo and shared fun, and after showing my partner the vibrations, so was he.

Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring ReviewFirst task was to try and fit the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring around him. The thick silicone seemed like it might give us some problems here, as it was quite difficult to pull and stretch it the first time. However, after a few times we’ve found it easier to stretch around him – using a dot of water-based lube helps. I managed to ‘help’ him get the ATOM ring around the base of his cock, but it wouldn’t go around his balls too.

The vibrations were incredibly intense for him – but then he’s much more sensitive to vibrations than I am. It was enough stimulation on the low to mid-levels of constant or oscillating. While masturbating while wearing the ATOM cock ring, he didn’t need or want any more than that. It was great fun watching him stroke himself and get the additional pleasure from the ATOM cock ring, and on more than a few occasions I haven’t been able to help myself – I’ve given him plenty of hands-on (& oral) help. Not that he needed it, but he definitely wanted it.

Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring ReviewDuring couples’ play, the ATOM cock ring was once again a winner. Despite the shape being different to, and smaller than the ATOM Plus, it’s still a sizeable cock ring in its own right. The large vibrating area and the deep rumbly vibrations don’t mean that the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring is heavy though; it’s lightweight and comfortable to wear and use.

We found the absence of a remote control quite noticeable. The power on/setting change button on the side of the ring is quite small and during use we both found it difficult to find and to press. The power up and down buttons (+ and -) on the metallic area were easier to find as they’re on that metallic strip, and the raised symbols give you that extra grip even when using lube.

As I said at the outset, I don’t have a great history with vibrating cock rings – so how did the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring perform?

Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring ReviewBrilliantly. Although there’s still that element of on/off vibration during thrusting sex, when I’m on top it’s much easier to control; I can decide to sit and enjoy those deliciously deep, rumbling vibrations against my clit. I can lean over him and raise my hips behind to maximise the time my clit is in contact with the vibrating portion, and slowing the action down helps too. An additional bonus is that these moves made sex even more intense and passionate, and prolonging the connection, delaying his ejaculation, being in control led us both to explosive climaxes. Me first, obviously.

Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring ReviewWe’ve used the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring several times together and although I’m still not 100% a fan of using vibrating cock rings during sex, whenever we do use one it’s the ATOM I choose. Every time. It would be interesting to see how the ATOM Plus compares, with its different shape, two integrated vibrating motors and the potential for perineum stimulation for him during use.

As an aside, I can use the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring as a clitoral vibrator and orgasm with it on the top constant vibrating speed. Good to know, right? Obviously not its intended use, but it’s always good to be able to benefit from solo play with a product designed for penis-owners! I’ve spent far too long envying those who got to wrap their cock in the vibrating/PulsePlate heaven of the Hot Octopuss PULSE…

Clean-Up

As the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring is fully waterproof, it’s easy to clean after use. I like to clean it carefully in a bowl of warm soapy water then finish with a spritz of sex toy cleaner.

Summary

The Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring is the next level in vibrating cock rings. Silicone, rechargeable, waterproof, powerful, comes with storage, big enough to stimulate two… what more could you possibly ask for? Well – a remote control for couples’ play would make things easier to control, but this is a minor gripe all things considered.

At £49, the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring isn’t the cheapest vibrating cock ring out there but I’d bet it’s one of the most satisfying, long lasting, top quality ones you’ll find. With rechargeable power, and that power being so powerful and rumbly it can even get this Power Queen off, it’s £49 well spent in my opinion.

For those who aren’t into jackhammer power levels round their cock (or between cock shaft and clit during PiV sex) you have the option to ‘turn it down’ by using the controls on either side.

Easy and impressively satisfying to use, easy to clean afterwards –and easy to get yours. Just click through to choose from the Hot Octopuss ATOM Cock Ring or the Hot Octopuss ATOM Plus Cock Ring today.
