The Amovibe people have a new and very interesting male masturbator. I’m a hard reviewer of male sex toys. I’ve tried dozens over the years. My last review was for an Amovibe device (the Albertine) that uses suction to provide a fairly realistic blow job. By applying suction and releasing it, you get a nice feeling. Very good.

Their newest device, the Game Cup (I have no idea what they were thinking when they named it.) goes in a different direction. It looks like some kind of robot with two arms sticking out of the cylindrical body. It turns out that those arms are very useful. If you’re like me, you won’t care what it looks like as long as you have a good time.

The Game Cup uses rollers outside of the silicone liner to, well, jerk you off. This is identical to the way the Autoblow works. Prior devices by other makers moved the sheath up and down the penis. I didn’t find that technique very exciting. I have an Autoblow ai. It is very heavy and hard to keep in position. It also has to be plugged into the wall socket. I dropped it, and the controls popped out of the body. My biggest problem was that the squeeze on my penis was too loose.

The Game Cup is a better fit. It’s lighter, and the two handles allow easy positioning. The silicone liner feels wonderful. Be sure to use a good amount of water-based lube. I liked how it caressed my cock. Unlike my Autoblow, the rollers in the Game Cup moved from the bottom of the cylinder to the top. It provided a most satisfying penis massage.

The device also includes vibration from two new-generation bullet vibrators. If you like vibes, the Game Cup delivers plenty. It has a third feature: heat. It will heat the silicone sheath to about 100o F. It takes about five minutes to get there. I didn’t find that feature very helpful. I supposed if you are in a cold room, you will benefit from the body temp warmth.

Both the roller speed (up and down motion) and the vibe patterns are controlled by buttons on the two handles. It takes some practice to use them without looking. There are ten patterns for each function.

I like this device. It’s fun to use. It suffers from the same flaw as the Autoblow; the amount of “squeeze” from the rollers isn’t adjustable. Ironically, just as I started this review, Autoblow sent an email that they have a new version of their device that allows control of the squeeze. The Game Cup could profit from this addition.

The Game Cup is $99 USD at the time of this writing. It’s a bargain compared with the Autoblow. It’s also lighter and quieter. I loved the Albertine with its suction. I would love a device that combines the Albertine with the Game Cup. Combine the Game Cup thrusts with the rollers with the suction of the Albertine. I think that would be the most realistic blow job machine ever. I didn’t find the vibration that helpful. I don’t think the heater is needed at all. The silicone sleeve feels warm without it.

The Game Cup is a bargain. It works as well as my Autoblow at almost half the price. Hey, Amovibe, can you make a combo Albertine/Game Cup? In the meantime, this device is a great ride.

A short time ago, I reviewed the Holy Trainer Nano V5 (Link). This used to be the shortest model Holy Trainer offered. As I pointed out in my review, the Nano was too long. My penis didn’t remain in firm contact with the front of the device. That meant my urine stream didn’t flow neatly out of the front hole provided for that purpose. It made a mess.

Fortunately, Holy Trainer makes a shorter model, the Nub. This device has a shorter tube than all of their other models (see size chart above). Please note that there are two length measurements provided for each tube. The “A” measurement is the length from the top to the tip, including some of the ring. The “B” measurement is less useful. It’s the protruding part of the tube.

The Nano’s “A” measurement is 3.1 inches. My penis, at its most flaccid, is about 2.5 inches. You can see that there is a good reason I don’t touch the end most of the time. The Nub’s “A” measurement is 2.2 inches. Perfect! For years people, including me, have stressed measuring penis length at average softness. I learned through experience that my cock didn’t need a cage the same length as my soft penis.  In fact, some compression turns out to be a good thing. The head needs to be in firm contact with the front of the tube to assure accurate, neat peeing.

When it first came out, many considered the Nub too confining. They were fooled by the “B” measurement and the natural male inclination to overestimate cock length. Sooner or later, even the most diehard long-cage fans had to acknowledge the benefits of a shorter, properly-fitting penis tube or cage. It turns out that the Nub is more than a chastity novelty. It’s the go-to size for a lot of us.

wearing the Nub

It was a little more difficult getting into the nub. The more compact tube left a bit more excess skin to get in the way while putting it on. I can’t complain about the effort. It was only slightly more than I needed with the Nano. Once on, the Nub was supremely comfortable. I think the bio-sourced plastic used by Holy Trainer provides a “softer” feel. The plastic is hard but feels good on my skin.

The V4 and V5 base rings are wider than earlier versions. I find that more comfortable. For guys used to narrower rings, it might take some getting used to. The Nub’s shorter tube makes it invisible, even under tight clothes or bathing suits. The penis nestles between the balls and stays out of sight.

I love the new lock. Unlike any other male chastity device, the Holy Trainer V5 models have a built-in lock. There are no parts or pieces to insert or lose. The device can be put on without a key. That makes travel and long-distance wear more secure. The device goes on, and a simple click of the lock does the job. No key is required. The lock is high-quality stainless steel.

The Nub is very lightweight. I don’t feel that I’m wearing a male chastity device. I remember it when my cock tries to get hard. The Nub makes sure that doesn’t happen.

If you are wondering about what size Holy Trainer to buy, my suggestion is to measure from your body along the top of your MOST flaccid penis. You want to measure when you come out of a cold pool. The trick is to buy a device that will hold the head of your penis against the front of the device. Don’t get carried away. If your most flaccid length is four inches, then get the size designed for that length.

A word of caution is important here. As of now, the cheap Chinese knock-off male chastity device makers can’t duplicate the Holy Trainer V5s because of the integrated locks. At some point, they might be able to do it. Stay away from them. They are made of cheap plastic and don’t fit as well as the Swiss-made Holy Trainers. Aside from the moral reason to avoid knock-offs, the imitators are not as good.

Holy Trainer ships quickly and uses an express service that gets you your device in a few days. I am very happy wearing my new Nub.

Holy Trainer has been making male chastity devices for many years. Their products are knocked off by cheap Chinese imitators. These cheesy products flood the Internet and Amazon. The authentic Holy Trainer devices are worth the cost. The current price for a V5 device is $165. It’s worth it!

The latest version (v5) features a novel lock. It’s fully integrated into the device. Prior versions used the standard “hitch lock” that required inserting a locking pin using the key. The new, integrated lock doesn’t require a key to lock it. You put the device on and press the lock down. It clicks and you are securely locked in. Very cool. This new lock will slow down the Chinese copycats.

About the nano

I tested the v5 Nano. This is the second smallest version. The Nub is the shortest. I used that one in the past. The Nano has a bit more room than I need but seemed like a good choice for this review. My base ring size is 45mm (1-3/4 inches). This is also the most popular base ring size. Remember that the base ring should fit snugly (you should be able to insert one finger between your skin and the ring), but not too tight. If you need to lube in order to wear the base ring comfortably, it’s too small.

The authentic Holy Trainer is made from a special plastic that is derived from plants, not petroleum. It has a fairly low melting point. The manufacturer claims this improves comfort and safety. I believe them. The ring is anatomically shaped. Over the years, this shape has been refined. The current version is very comfortable.

The penis tube has one opening at the end. It’s generously sized but not big enough to encourage mischief. The entire device is sturdy while being very lightweight. Manufacturing quality is excellent. This device is molded, not 3D-printed. That’s important. The molded product has a much smoother finish and is much stronger than the printed products.

The device comes in a strong plastic pouch. Prior versions were packed in a fancy box intended to provide storage when not in use. I never kept it. I keep devices in zip-lock bags. Apparently, a lot of other people do too. The Holy Trainer is made in Switzerland. Shipping is free and very fast. I received mine in just a few days.

Wearing the v5

The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to put on. Every other device I’ve tried is difficult to put on. Attaching the tube to the base ring of most male chastity devices is a struggle, including pinched skin and badly aligned locking mechanisms. The v5 base ring has a wide top that protects tender skin during assembly. The tube slides over the base ring with no fuss or pain. Once the tube is firmly in place, press the lock. It clicks, and you’re locked in. No key is required. I had no problem putting it on.

The first thing I noticed was that I was completely comfortable. The fit is perfect. There was no pinching, and it’s so light I forgot I was wearing it. It’s invisible under clothing. My problem came when I had to pee.

The biggest issue with tube-type cages is that urine gets trapped in them. If you are lucky and the tip of your penis is firmly touching the end of the tube, almost all of the urine will go where you want it. I’m not that lucky. My penis can shrink and find the head halfway down the tube, even with the Nano.

That means my urine stream isn’t going straight out the hole in the tip. It went everywhere. I had to sit on the toilet. After I finished, I had to stay seated to allow the tube to drain. After I got up, I needed to rinse above the device where some urine escaped. It didn’t take long for the device to smell. If I had the Nub (maybe I need to try one), there would have been no mess or bad smell. Even in that situation, an odor will develop over time. That’s the nature of closed tubes. A flexible shower head and liquid soap can let you clean up every day. Even so, the device needs to come off at least every week or two for a more thorough cleaning. This isn’t an issue just with this device. It’s true of all closed tube male chastity devices.

If you prefer a tube rather than a cage, I think the Holy Trainer V5 is the best off-the-shelf choice. There are enough options for most guys to get a very good fit without the time and expense of ordering a custom device. Service is excellent, and the quality of this device is amazing. Best of all, the integrated lock offers the keyholder the ability to give the device to her male and have him lock himself in without ever going near the key. The new click-and-lock system is convenient and secure.

I know it is tempting to buy a cheap knockoff. Don’t do it. Aside from it being unethical, the knockoffs are made from cheap plastic and don’t feel as good as the real thing. I can’t explain it, but the authentic Holy Trainer (This website) feels soft against my skin. It doesn’t feel like plastic. It feels good.

I got the Nano because it is the most popular size. I should think about trying the V5 nub too. That may solve my shrinking penis problem. No matter what size you get, the Holy Trainer is the most comfortable male chastity device I’ve ever tried.

Over the years, I’ve reviewed a few male masturbators, the industry term for devices designed to get a man off. This isn’t your daddy’s vibrator. The Amovibe Albertine actually sucks cock. No kidding, it does. The manufacturer used the technology developed for penis pumps to realistically suck a penis.

Penis pumps are devices that include an airtight container that goes over the penis and a pump to remove air. When some of the air is removed around the penis, it expands. The lower air pressure allows blood to flow into the penis and make it hard. Using a device like this regularly will enlarge the cock, usually making it thicker. The result isn’t very aesthetically pleasing, but it is larger.

Anyway, the Albertine has a small electric vacuum pump and two bullet vibrators. You insert your penis (soft or hard) into the device and start it. The vacuum pump draws the penis in while the vibrators stimulate it. That’s the theory. The device is programmed to suck and release at intervals. The intensity of sucking also changes. The Albertine comes with four vacuum modes and ten vibe modes.

The vibrator patterns are the standard ones that most modern vibrators have. I’m not terribly fond of any of them. But I’m spoiled. The vacuum settings are interesting. My favorite is a steady suck and release pattern. The intensity of the sucking is moderate but enough to draw my cock in. One of the five patterns includes a very powerful suck that drew me in with a good amount of force. It felt good. The other sucking patterns were a bit odd and not too exciting for me.

The device is reasonably priced, $72.99 USD at the time of this writing. Shipping is free. It uses a USB charger, and each charge lasts a long time. It doesn’t come with clear instructions. However, if you scroll through the images on the product webpage, you will find illustrated instructions.

Good instructions would have been helpful. I went back to the Amovibe site to get ideas. I lubed my  cock and poured some into the silicone sleeve. There is a clearly marked power switch on the top of the device. I inserted my soft cock and held the power switch down for three seconds. The vibes started. I didn’t feel any suction.

I fumbled around and felt a rubber strip near the top. Pressing the top of the strip cycled through the vibe patterns. More fumbling and I realized that the suction control was at the bottom of the strip. I pressed it once, and I felt my cock being drawn in and released in a regular rhythm. It felt good, but not great. I pressed the bottom of the strip again, and a different sucking pattern started. The fourth pattern included a very powerful suck. I liked it. It pulled me in and held me for a few seconds.

I finally realized that I had to “help” the device. I pulled it a couple of inches away from my body so that each suck would move my penis in, and each release would let it slip out a bit. That worked well. The vibrations didn’t do much for me. Your experience may vary.

Of all the masturbators I’ve tried, this is the best. I’m including AutoBlow in the list of less exciting devices. The problem I had was that the sucking patterns weren’t quite right for me. I wanted a stronger, faster-sucking action. The ones provided weren’t enough to do the trick. If the device had more control over speed and vacuum, it would be perfect.

The vibrators were too general. All of my penis was stimulated. Vibes only work for me when they focus on my frenum area. General vibration is more annoying than fun. It would be great to let me use the device with suction alone.

The Albertine has great potential. It’s definitely worth the price. If a version could be made that connects to an app that allows better control, it would be perfect. As it is, I had a lot of fun trying it and plan to use it more if Mrs. Lion lets me. I may need more “practice” with it to make it orgasmic.
