Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator Review
By Nat and Tom
During the last Pleasure Panel round, my partner noticed that the Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator was looking for a new home and as he’s now open to trying non-realistic toys, he offered himself up for testing. This stroker was described as having a blow job feel and as we are in a long distance relationship, he felt that this type of sensation could be a useful addition to his toy collection for the times when we’re apart.
The Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator arrived in a minimalistic white and grey box with a product image on the front. On the back there was useful measurements and another image that pointed out the products key features. The side lists the care instructions so there was no need to include a user guide, making the stroker the only item inside the box. It had been wrapped in plastic for hygiene reasons but it doesn’t come with anything to keep it stored in afterwards.
The Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator is made from TPE which means that it is porous. This is not uncommon for strokers as porous materials tend to be softer with more stretch to them than the non-porous alternative which is silicone. A few companies have made silicone options in recent times but these are still few and far between so TPE is the next best thing. It is the only exception my partner makes to our usual rules on materials and that’s because they are designed for external use only and are disposed of after a few months.
Regardless of how well the Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator is rinsed and cleaned after use, the pores will harbour bacteria over time so we strongly recommend checking for mould spots or material changes before each use to be on the safe side. During the time it’s in our possession, cleaning consists of a thorough wash inside and out with lukewarm water and a spritz or two of antibacterial toy cleaner before it’s left to dry completely. Before it is stored in a pouch (as it shouldn’t touch other toys) we use a sprinkle of cornstarch or renewing powder to maximise its shelf life and remove some of the tackiness.
Content that the toy was latex, phthalates and odour free, my partner applied a generous coating of water-based lubricant inside the Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator. It has around five inches of total length and most of this is usable so it should be suitable for most penises in the average length bracket. My partner is slightly above average but found that he didn’t need to insert his whole penis in order to get satisfaction as he rather likes the focus to be on his head and the couple of inches below it. Girth wise, it was more of a challenge, as whilst the material has stretch to it, my partner found the fit to be quite snug and said he needed additional lubricant to get it on and off comfortably. So, penis owners with a girth of 5.5” inches and above, keep that in mind and have extra lube on hand.
Once comfortably inserted, he began moving the Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator up and down his shaft at his usual pace, which is slow at first and faster once he can feel the tension building. The texture inside is unlike any stroker he’s used before as it has spiral or coil like ridges that rub and pull against the sensitive spots on his penis as he moves it up and down. It didn’t look that intense to him at first but after his initial test run he said that he was surprised by how stimulating it actually was for him. He’s a big fan of obvious and defined textures in strokers and sleeves, as this is what works best for him, and the ridges on this stroker seemed to be noticeable enough to suit his preferences.
As for the blow job feel mentioned on the box, my partner said that whilst it doesn’t substitute oral sex in any way, it’s the closest replication of the sensation that he’s felt from a toy so far. This is because it has a closed end, which stops him from poking out of the other side and ruining the illusion, that feels similar to the sensation of lips around the penis once it is warmed up and well-lubricated. He thinks that the Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator could be a good starting point for penis owners who are new to sex toys and want something non-intimidating, people who want something that’s well textured but not realistic in appearance or people who are looking for a stretchy toy that’s easy to hide and travel with.
One thing that separates the Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator from other strokers that he’s used in the past are the holes on the side that hold two bullet vibrators. Plenty of strokers will accommodate a small watch battery size bullet but this one will hold two regular sized bullets like the So Divine vibes we have attached in the photos. This is an advantage as these bullets are often stronger and provide more stimulation than the kind a watch battery bullet could offer. My partner doesn’t need a huge amount of power but two bullets like the ones pictured provide more than enough additional stimulation to increase the speed and strength of his orgasm.
Overall, we think that the Linx Wave Sucker Stroker Penis Masturbator could be a great product for a beginner who has a girth below 5.5 inches. It was a tight fit for my partner so he would prefer a slightly larger opening to slide inside comfortably but aside from that, he had a great time with this product and it introduced him to sensations that he hadn’t felt from other strokers before. If you or your partner are not fond of realistic or open-ended masturbators then this one could be a good alternative.
