Tickler Buddy Adjustable Erection Holder
Pleasure Panel review by Jon Pressick (Sex in Words)
I like sex toys that push the envelope and try new things for old tricks. Can’t exactly say they’re always successful, but, there is no advancement without taking bold steps in new directions.
Take the common cock ring, for example. Pretty hard to screw up, pretty standard design. Pretty consistent results. I’ve not been using cock rings long, however, I have grown quite fond of the device, and have tried a few that have stuck to the basic premise—put cock through round thing, get hard, stay hard.
The Tickler Buddy Adjustable Erection Holder tries to put a different spin on this tried and true technique and gives it a good try… but I think I need to see more from them. Instead of a general round shape, this toy looks more like a bolo tie that you wrap around the base of your penis or the shaft just before the scrotum. I’m a fan of the base method… but I found it rather tricky to lasso my pony with the Tickler Buddy. I’m not claiming any great girth here, but this particular size was a bit small. You secure the toy with a nifty mechanism, but when I tried to slip it over my bits, the ends would pop out of the mechanism and the soft silicone was a bit hard to hold onto to guide back into it. It was frustrating.
However, I will say, once I did get past putting the toy on, it was quite comfortable, kept the wood good and strong for a nice amount of time and was simple and easy to take off. The Tickler Buddy Adjustable Erection Holder is in a bit of a Catch-22. It is a great innovation, but needs more work. The silicone is a must, but a bit hard to grab onto, when need be. The clip part is a neat idea, but when things are just a bit tight, it is hard to loosen it off just a bit. Instead, it flew completely off a couple times.
I’m not about to write off my Tickler Buddy Adjustable Erection Holder. As mentioned, when it got there, it did the job just fine. I mean, nobody learns to tie a Windsor knot their first try, right?
