Toy Review: Atom Vibrating Cock Ring

I name sex toys. Is that weird? All the dildos I own have names, as if they are characters in the ongoing narrative of my sex life, and I guess they are. When Hot Octopuss sent me the Atom vibrating cockring I immediately called it “Adam” because that’s what my partner misheard me say as I popped it out of the box and looked it over. We were both immediately intrigued and having read all the specs on the Atom, we were keen to give it a try. Fast forward a couple months and a backlog of toys to test, and he said to me, “Hey, don’t you have a cockring to test?” and yes, of course I did. It was time. 

My Experience

Atom vibrating cock ring

Hot Octopuss‘ tagline is “Reinventing Pleasure” and they keep that promise with The Atom. The Atom makes some hefty promises that the vibrations will be as good for the wearer’s partner as it is for the wearer. In this instance I was the partner and I will agree that the sensations that are intended for clit stimulation, the raised “nub” and focused vibration, definitely hit the spot. In general I find that a man grinding against my pelvis during intercourse isn’t the best, but the Atom filled the gap, so to speak, and made the contact more effortless and more enjoyable. Like me, he enjoyed the solid vibration on the lowest setting the most and wasn’t keen on the rhythmic pulsing modes.

“It’s surprisingly intense! It’s almost overwhelming, but, in the very best way!”

We both enjoyed the Atom for its power and efficiency but agreed that the higher settings lost the desirable “rumble” that the lower speeds had. The design is very lightweight and sleek, almost too sleek for lubed up hands. The on/off button is tiny and also controls the mode and it made for some fumbling and less than seamless transitions. The +/- intensity buttons, however, are easy to manage. It’s a sexy little toy. It is, however, very loud. There is nothing discreet about the buzz it makes and the higher the setting, the higher the vibration, the higher the volume. It didn’t kill the mood but no one in earshot will mistake that you’re using a vibrator when they hear it. As a couple’s toy, I like it just fine. But I think it makes a better solo vibrator with the cock hole as a handy handle.

Bang for Your Buck

The Atom is a great buy and excellent value at $85 or £49. It’s clearly made well, Hot Octopuss is a reputable company focused on quality and technology so this is not a cheap novelty knock off that you will toss in the bin after a few uses.
