The TENGA EGGs are without a doubt one of the most discreet pleasure products for men on the market. As such, these little, super-stretchable EGGs are not only a great toy for a man himself, but a great novelty gift, birthday present, or an item for the bedroom for couples looking for a bit of fun! They may look small, but hidden within their EGG-shaped casing hides a super-stretchable elastomeric gel that can cover any size.
About Keith Haring
Keith Haring was an artist and social activist who frequently used his art to speak out about social issues. He was one of the best known among the young visual artists, filmmakers, performers, and musicians whose work responded to the urban street culture of the 80s. Openly gay, Haring was diagnosed with AIDS in 1988, and in 1989 he established The Keith Haring Foundation, whose mission it is to support not-for-profit organizations that assist children, as well as organizations involved in education, research and care related to HIV and AIDS, as well as to sustain, expand, and protect the legacy of Keith Haring, his art, and his ideals.
TENGA Co., Ltd. was founded on the concept of bringing sex and sexuality to the forefront, for all to enjoy. On the 7th of July 2005, the “male pleasure item” brand TENGA was first released; a line of safe, functional, well-designed and above all enjoyable male pleasure items – products used for male masturbation. The revolutionary products did away with the obscene imagery and lewd products of the past, with pioneering design and technology creating products of functionality never seen before in the industry.
Their TENGA CUP, EGG, FLIP and the award-winning TENGA 3D serve to bring sexual health and wellness to the forefront, eradicating obscenity and taboos with function, style, and hygiene. Their TENGA 3D Series designed and produced by TENGA was awarded the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2012” by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany, and was the first ever male masturbation aid to win the prestigious design award.
Now in their seventh year strong, TENGA can be found in not only adult toy stores, but general stores, mass-merchandisers, drug stores and major mail-order and online retail outlets. The TENGA products are now available in over 40 countries world-wide, with their CUP and EGG lines selling over 10,000 units every single day, receiving high praise as the number 1 brand of male masturbation aids by units sold around the world.
