I got a sense of deja vue when I received the Lux LX4+ cock ring for review. I’ll explain why later but for now I’ll cover the feature and performance of this rather well presented silicone cock ring.
The quality of this particular male sex toy is evident from the moment you begin to unpack it. A cellophane sleeve protects the satin-matt box that the product arrives in. This box is sealed with a white paper band printed in gold – it reminded me of the sort of seal found on boxes of cigars that I remember my father having when I was a kid. I think this a was conscious design choice on the part of the packaging designers, as was the way the top of the box is hinged. It looks like you ought to keep this male sex toy in a humidor!
Inside you’ll find a translucent piece of paper printed with details of the current Lux range and the manual which is specific top the product. The charger, international plug adapters and the cock ring itself are all held in a dense silicone foam block in the box. All in a very deliberately sombre matt black/charcoal grey. Can’t imagine where they got that colour scheme from, LOL.
The manual is multilingual, echoing the fact that you have adapters for UK (square pin), US, Asian and European mains outlets. This, like the rest of the range is a go-anywhere sex toy aimed at the jet-setting man, an impression further reinforced if you follow the QR code on the packaging to the luxformen.com site because you’ll be treated to a 1 minute video of successful, professional men with perfectly polished smiles … all of whom are depicted as using Lux products.
First impressions over, down to the facts:
- It’s nice and large with a very flexible silicone that allows even larger guys to use this cock ring.
- Has a wide area of vibration making it easy to make contact with your partner during use, but not so large as to get in the way.
- It’s rechargeable anywhere in the world where you can get mains power.
- Is simple to use, having only one button.
- Incorporates a travel lock that is activated and deactivated by three quick presses of the control button.
- Charges in just a couple of hours.
- Is very powerful.
We tried this cock ring out expecting it to perform well but found it to be very powerful and a great way to enhance sex. For me it’s the perfect size because of its flexibility and as Suze described it “turns your cock into a vibrator” something that some toys claim to do but few achieve.
I can highly recommend this particular sex toy to anyone wanting a high quality cock ring. My only reservation being that there are no pulsing modes (which I like) just increasingly powerful continuous vibrations.
Now for the deja vue bit …
If you compare the features of this toy, its dimension and its performance with the Jopen Ego E3 cock ring you would be mistaken for having trouble telling them apart. Same features, same size ring, same excellent vibratory power. OK so the Ego is blue and this is black, the Ego is USB charged and this has a mains charger, the Ego have a scalloped bullet section, this is slightly smaller and smooth … but it might almost be the same device.
The charger for the Lux is rated at 5 volts/1 amp and as the Ego is USB charged I’m not going to try charging the Lux via USB because USB ports before USB three are only rated at 5 volts/0.5 amps. So the Lux should charge faster and that seems to be the case but otherwise I’m guessing the bullet is the same in each.
So which to choose. Well, they are both great toys so I’l leave that decision to you.
