The Connoisseur’s Cock Ring: Lelo’s Tor II


It’s soft yet powerful, forthright yet discreet. Like a Southern gentleman extending his hand, the Tor II from Lelo graciously invited my clit to dance the Charleston. And how!

All strange metaphors aside, I really enjoyed the Tor II. As someone who hasn’t had the best experiences with cock rings, I was initially skeptical. However, once on my test subject (primed with a little lube as advised by Lelo) we turned it on and got to experimenting.

There are six different modes that seem entertaining enough, yet not super practical to scroll through while the ring is on. It requires holding down of the + button for a couple seconds then scrolling through, which, when lubed up and stretched around cock isn’t the easiest trick to maneuver. So, I preferred to get it going straight and solid at a decent level and let my own gyrations be the fun.

And they certainly were! Ridin’ cowgirl style was the best here, allowing me to control the frequency and pressure of contact. The vibrator isn’t bulky but is definitely there, and is pretty powerful. It was soft enough so it didn’t uncomfortably dig into my beau’s pelvic bone as other rings have in the past. He informed that the ring didn’t affect him all too much — no added pleasure really, yet no detraction. Apparently you can flip it so the vibraty portion pleasures the balls but we didn’t really feel the need to go there.

Either way, I consider a cock ring a pretty solid success if it doesn’t negatively affect my dude and positively affects me! This isn’t the cheapest thing on the market (it runs $119) but if you’re interested in getting more from a ring it may justify skipping the cheaper/crappier ones.

So if you don’t mind taking the lead on your whirl around the “dancefloor”, the Tor II is an elegant and accommodating partner. It may not be the one you go to every time, but it’s definitely a nice option to have at your beck and call.

    Ha! The only thing I could think about as I was composing this list was how disappointed you would be by Austin Wilde’s inclusion. I think we’ll always disagree when it comes to him, but I have to point out a few things about my coverage of Benjamin Godfre.

    Most of the fun I poke at him is in total jest because even though I’m not crazy for his schtick, I get it. He’s just a creative type that found a home in gay erotica, and I think he’d be much better suited as a model and NOT a pseudo-pornstar.

    That being said, I think that A) if he were actually gay, he would have no reason to remain in the closet and B) he’s incomparable to Cody Cummings because Cody’s work is hateful and rooted in some demented form of homophobia.

  • Bradford Matthews

    Agreed on both fronts! I’m expecting great things from CockyBoys in the new year…

  • Bradford Matthews

    I could never argue with you!

    I just think there’s something sexier in Benjamin’s approach, even if it’s just a tease. I lust for him the way I lust for guys like James Deen (which some people don’t like, but I think eroticizing the unattainable is an awesome fetish market).

    I think everyone can agree that Cody is just gross, though.

    He IS gross. :P

    I just don’t find Godfre sexy at all. Sure, he’s got the body, but it’s tatted up too much and his facial expressions, while I suppose he and/or the photographer think are sexy, look ridiculous and contrived to me. Which has the effect of being completely UNsexy to me. :)

    James Deen is nice, but give me Seth Gamble or Jean Val Jean. Or, if we go classic straight porn, Alex Sanders or Gerry Pike. ;)

    You are my new favorite person.

    You are so sweet. :) I just like what I like. ;)

  • Bradford Matthews

    win.

  • GayhawkAZ

    Wikipedia can be informative, when the information’s correct. Thing is, I didn’t need to use it to write what I did. I just remember stuff like that. :)

    Yes, Alex Sanders. Problem? Let me guess, you’re a Billy Glyde fan? Or maybe you’re more the Nick Manning type?

    Gerry Pike did one of the first “reverse gangbang” videos. He was also one of the leads in the Interview With the Vampire-inspired Immortal Beloved. Not only was he a romance novel cover come to life, he knew how to act. Oh, and fuck like a stallion. Here’s a photo (excuse the tits, boys — LOL):

    Bradford’s above and out of my league, but given our mutual respect for all things porn, I wouldn’t kick him out of my bed. :)

    If you equate Alex Sanders with Michael Bolton, those are your issues. As for Pike, one of my reasons for liking his work is because he didn’t look like every other cardboard cutout straight male porn star — because I’m NOT an “average straight guy” and quite happy not to be.

    Manuel Ferrara looks like a trashy Easy Coast mobster, Xander Corvus is acceptable, you have to know Castle and Christian did gay porn (and were better there than straight porn, even if they were G4P), and Evan Stone is past his prime (and knows it).

    We’re never going to agree. Surrender, Dorothy.

    the Republican party has an explicitly anti-gay agenda in their platform, as we all know, and are known for their anti-porn views in general (regardless of what they may hypocritically view behind closed doors). Many of the Republican candidates made promises to “crack down” down on porn during the campaigns. How you don’t see that a gay porn mogul’s support of a party that makes it abundantly clear that they believe his sexuality is “sinful” and “unnatural,”opposes gay marriage and civil unions, and would like to take down the entire porn industry if they could, isn’t hypocritical is beyond me. “but then again, I’m not sure you completely understand most of the things you’ve said here.” Yes, I actually DO understand ALL of the things I’ve said here. I am not in the least stupid, and I don’t believe I’ve contradicted myself even once.

    What “comments about physical appearance ” are you referring to? Have you not yourself described certain performers as “gross” and “unsexy”? Is it that I compared Alex Sanders to Michael Bolton? You referred to Manuel Ferrara as looking “like a trashy East coast mobster.” How is that NOT a comment about physical appearance? My references to Billy Glyde, Nick Manning, Rocco Siffredi,and Nacho Vidal being nauseating to me has to do with their style of performance and caveman attitudes, not their “physical appearance.” Or are you trying to infer that Ron Jeremy isn’t actually physically unattractive? I’m not saying he’s a bad person, but i seriously doubt he’d even be cast in bear porn if he was willing. As for politics, yes, I do think people need to back up their assertions. Otherwise, they’re meaningless. I am NOT the person who coined the term “Confused Gay Republican,” While the comment about you and Bradford dating may have been received as some kind of snarky crack, it was just my observation that the two of you had a bit of a comment love-fest going on. As for the all-gay porn news blogs you mentioned, I don’t have any interest in commenting on there, as I consider them boys’ clubs and don’t think they’d have any interest in my opinions as a female, unless perhaps I were Mr. Pam.

    OMG seriously please just stop. I am sick and tired of you always having the last fucking word about things!!! I made a fucking commenting account because all you do is piss and moan about getting picked on and as someone who likes to read this blog and look at the clips and yeah even sometimes get some education from the people who do comment, YOU ARE RUINING MY ENJOYMENT.
    Fuck your politics, fuck your wimpness about thinking its SAFE to be on here and shoot your mouth off but “oh Im not Mr Pam so I am too scared to go elsewhere” — but you’ll go after someone who’s been on this site for years and has proven he knows his stuff (even if he sometimes does change his mind about people and thats weird, sorry gayhawk).
