It’s couple time!
You and your partner have a long-distance relationship, live umpteen KM apart and have a bad sex life? Here’s the solution: We finally have a sextoy in the test again, which was developed for couples, but can also be used on its own.
We are talking about new products of the Dutch company ‘KIIROO’: On the one hand there are ONYX, a masturbator or blowjob simulator and on the other hand PEARL, a vibrator. Sextoys for couples, which were developed in cooperation with the American manufacturer Fleshlight, the company KIIROO kindly provided us for a test.
The following teledildonics, consisting of the masturbator ‘ONYX’ and the vibrator ‘PEARL’, come directly from the company ‘ONYX’.. fleshlight Both devices were free to my house. no operating instructions Instead, a small card with the corresponding download link: as a PDF from the manufacturer’s website. If required, you can also download it here: Instructions ONYX & Instructions PEARL.
ONYX, the toy for the male part, is a so-called ‘Teledildonic masturbator’. It has inside 10 Contraction rings, on which the stimulation of the 5 vibration rings of the PEARL can be transferred.
It’s actually quite simple: The two toys are paired with each other via Bluetooth and the Internet. Then the movements that your partner makes with the PEARL are transferred to your ONYX. So you can sit back and relax while the Enjoy Sex Simulation.
You can watch a nice video explaining the functional principle behind ONYX and PEARL here.
In today’s test, I’ll show you how exactly sex toys work for couples, what they can do, and whether they could revolutionize the sextoy industry (especially in long-distance relationships). What is your assessment of this?

Including specification of the Shipping Costs & Delivery Times.
The large, black, mysterious box is loaded in advance via USB
If you speak English, you can find more details about the device here.
The first ONYX arrived in a nice black cardboard box, but unfortunately defective: the USB charging socket had slipped in, so KIIROO sent me a new one.
The second ONYX first had to be connected via the supplied USB cable charging for approx. 3 h. To charge, use the cover, that hose and the remove red grip clipI notice that the insert (the tube) is not 100% seated and a little bit swells out of the clip. During cleaning and use it can happen that it squeezes out to the front towards the opening.
Please do not use the device during charging. If the red light lights up permanently when the device is switched on, the battery is full (how full you do not know) – if it flashes red, it is almost empty; then you have exactly 5 minutes before the device switches off.
Bluetooth masturbator not waterproof except for the hose; cleaning with antibacterial cloth possible
For the charging process, remove any lubricant residue and other materials and wipe. Please don’t go under running water. Not waterproof.
Only the hose that is to be removed can and should be under running water Please allow it to dry thoroughly in the air so that no germs can develop. The device itself can be cleaned with a antibacterial cloth clean; but please do not use a cleaning agent that contains alcohol.
esteemSince the Blowjob Simulator is not waterproof, it can also be used for not in the shower or the bathtub can be used.
To Switch on of the masturbator simply red multifunction button Keep pressed for approx. 5 sec.. Bluetooth is automatically activatedthe red LED light is now constantly on.
Create user account, register device online & install KIIROO software (USB dongle may be required)
On kiiroo.com you simply create a new account with your email address and a password. user account.
Then register ONYX with the device number found on the enclosed card, load and install the corresponding software, which runs on MAC from OSX 10.8, as well as on Windows from Win 7.
For my laptop I first had to download a driver to activate Bluetooth at all, then I started the installed software which told me that a Firmware update necessary If your PC is NOT equipped with Bluetooth by default, you will need to install a USB Bluetooth Dongle You can get it very cheap at the local Media Markt (ca. 5 €) or at Amazon.
The firmware update opened in my Internet Explorer, but there appeared a message in IE that it doesn’t work there and you should use the browser ‘Firefox’.
So I ran the whole thing again in Firefox. When starting the firmware update the red light on the device flashed several times.
After about 15 sec. everything is ready. After that the ONYX had to be restarted.
Before I forget, if you ever need the included hose broken You can simply buy it later. Individually for about 10 € or also gladly in the three-pack for something more. In my opinion this option is also necessary, because my hose has already carried a tear after a few uses from it.
High-priced Dutch Teledildonics, usable with VR-Goggles and available in different packages
ONYX, one Sex articles from dutch production is currently in Germany for approx. 180 € available; e.g. at Amazon. The following description of the PEARL costs approx. 120 € and the two of them together as Paartoy, as presented here currently around the 240 €. So it’s already a decent stake of money.
By the way, it also seems to be possible to use the ONYX with a Virtual Reality Glasses Here is an interesting video about it.
In addition, the manufacturer offers in his shop several ONYX packages In these videos the ladies get it themselves with a PEARL vibrator; these movements are then transferred live to your ONYX. The whole thing is also possible with webcam girls who let the PEARL circle all by themselves for you.
I didn’t test all three mentioned functions and can’t say anything about them, but at least in theory it’s a cool thing.
Who has experiences with it, may do this gladly in the comments customer.
Practical use of the tight ONYX on its own (3 programs possible), with lots of lubricant and both hands: rather sobering
What is immediately noticeableWhen I touched the inlay, my fingers were covered with white dust. That means, the thing is powderedthis makes the material more durable and cares for it.
Please also for this sex toy only Water-based lubricant Use the lubricant directly on the penis, the edge of the ONYX, as well as on the tube. Make sure that the tube is seated correctly and only then tighten the clip again.
Application WITHOUT using the software alone: Switch on (press for 5 sec.) and press the button once to switch on the software. 3 possible programs change gears.
- First stage (immediately after switching on) active: Manual pumping possible by moving your finger at the desired speed over the upper part of the Touchpad wipe. By the way: If you in manual mode you can not only connect to a PEARL, but also to a PEARL another Kiiroo Onyx about the just installed software steer – for homosexual couples this is a great thing, so you have control over your own ONYX as well as another ONYX at the same time. Whoever wipes the touchpad first has power over both devices..
- Another press of the multifunction button will put you in ” mode.fast pumping”. Here you don’t have to do anything else and can lean back and relax.
- One more press will put you in the “slow pumping”One last press of the button and you are back in the first (manual) mode. On long pressing finally switches off the device completely.
When using the KIIROO ONYX, you must always hold it with at least one hand. A freehand use is unfortunately not possible.
During the first application it is noticeable that the ONYX really tight So the feeling is more like anal sex. Men with a lot of equipment will probably have problems with the application. But according to the FAQ KIIROO is working on it., Inserts for different penis sizes to develop.
The intensity, when the device is active, I do not find particularly dolle. And this despite additional up and down movement of the Toys on my part. (usually not necessary at all).
incidental remark: Both internal webcams (laptop) and external webcams can be used with the software.
Bent and fluff-prone silicone vibrator that can also be used offline. Preparations identical to ONYX
First impression of the remote controlled vibrator ‘PEARL’: The surface consists of skin-friendly silicone, the unfortunately right susceptible to fuzz is, as we already know from Fun Factory products. It is bent at the top, so that it can be used for the G-spot stimulation like most vibrators. Just like the ONYX, it can also be used for offline solo or as supplement to sexual intercourse be used.
The Onyx, by the way, has a beautiful, little, black velvet pouch for storage at.
The preparatory measures here are similar to those of the ONYX.
You simply open the flap at the bottom of the device and plug in the USB cable for charging. This is a bit more elegantly solved than with the ONYX.
You should also register this device with the enclosed card on the KIIROO website. From the date of purchase, you will then have 1 year warranty. By the way, it is possible to log in on different PCs with the same account, so you don’t have to create a new one.
The charging process is identical to that of the masturbator: if the red light flashes quickly, it is almost empty; if it lights up normally, it is full. During the actual charging process, it flashes slowly if everything is OK.
Please also with this Toy only Water-based lubricants insert.
5 quite strong vibration levels for every taste. anal use not possible, but easy cleaning, although not 100% waterproof
You switch on the Pearl by pressing the multifunction button, which does not have a good pressure point, for approx. 5 seconds (Bluetooth thus active). It can also be used for used offline He’s got a lot of 5 vibration levels: low (2/10), medium (4/10), high (6/10), slow pulses (switch between ‘slow’ and ‘fast’) and last but not least fast impulses (Switch between ‘fast’ and ‘fast’).
Here you can also click your way through the different programs at the touch of a button. The vibrations are quite strong and are perceived even more strongly towards the tip of the toy. Especially with program 3 the vibration at the top can be felt very well.
The relatively soft silicone makes a easy insertion of the vibrator without problems possible. Provided, it was provided for sufficient Schmiere. My girlfriend had in any case no problems thereby.
esteemPEARL please Do not use anal, because he doesn’t have an outrigger to protect the Toy from disappearing.
This partner vibrator you can calmly under fluent warm water Gladly in combination with liquid soap or a special toy cleaner. But please clean the toy with a special soap. do not immerse in water (so do not use in the tub either) AND do not use any cleaning agents that contain alcohol.
Practical use of both toys: Problem-free coupling via 6-digit pin code. Communication via webcam, microphone and chat window
Coupling of the two toys and the actual practical test: paring of the devices via Bluetooth works smoothly.
When done, PEARL vibrates once briefly and ONYX shrugs once. In the software click on ‘Invite Partner’ to get a 6-digit number which you then send to your partner privately (whatsapp, phone, e-mail etc.).
Or you click ‘Join Partnerto enter the number you have received from your partner in advance. This pin is used to set a certain Communication security guaranteed.
As soon as the connection is established, the Image of your webcam, as well as the sound You can see your own webcam picture in the lower left corner and the one of your counterpart in the middle in large. On the upper right side you can see your micro, that sound, you’re receiving and that webcam image, that you transmit, deactivate. You also have the possibility to enlarge or reduce the window.
You also have the opportunity to give your counterpart a text message in a chat window If he has not opened the chat window, the corresponding icon will light up red to inform him.
Pretty stupid.: Once the chat window is closed, it is gone and cannot be opened again. Even if your counterpart writes a new message… no chance.
But what’s nice: If you don’t use the buttons for a while, they are automatically hidden, so that you can only admire your counterpart in full splendour.
Two sessions with my girlfriend: Rather funny and weird than turning on, but fully functional except for some initial difficulties
Well, to the actual practice test: Phew… so a little disappointing for my taste.
When I tried the last week twice with my girlfriend, who lives just 30 km away, there were only a few initial technical difficulties (Recognizing the PEARLS via Bluetooth on her somewhat outdated laptop) hardly any problems.
I admit: it was strange. Telephone sex in itself is something strange (I’m not used to it either), but to see each other while getting it with a toy whose movements are also transmitted over the Internet really puts one on top again.
Honestly: We had to laugh a lot more often than we had great “sex over the net” with each other.
The Transmission of movements from PEARL to the onyx masturbator, something works for me restricted and with time delay. So on the whole it works: You can for example stroke the PEARL with your half-open hand… the ONYX reacts with pulsating movements to your limb. Not quite 100% unerring, but on the whole it works. Unfortunately I don’t find this kind of penetration particularly intensive.
How this looks in real, the following video shows in the short version quite well.
The VR glasses of the nice gentleman you must think yourself simply away, because this is only optional.
Little tip: In the Youtube video is a Discount code for the Kiiroo Onlineshop Just keep your eyes open.
As my colleague says, it doesn’t feel like real sex (it’s just a sex simulation), but it doesn’t feel bad either. Only not sooo good. Unfortunately I have had THIS experience with almost all masturbators except for a few exceptions.
With us second online date everything was going well. smoother Madame and I met in my apartment; she had her laptop with her. After we emptied a bottle of “Bumssprudel” together in advance, she went to the next room with her PC and we started our second session; this time via my internal WLAN and not via the Internet.
From a technical point of view no difference, but still almost as funny as the first time, especially when you can hear yourself laughing through the door. But it was still fun. Advantage of THIS version: Afterwards we could do it directly with each other… in real… like the rabbits.
My conclusion on the practical applicationThe idea is awesome, the technical implementation of this sextoy for couples (via Bluetooth with the free software) is not bad, but the Emotional intensity of the toys, at least that of the masturbator, is still not the way I imagined it would be.
In short: The base is already there, but still with a lot of air up.
Conclusion Teledildonics by KIIROO – Paartoy for long-distance relationships with some weaknesses. Is this the future of the sextoy industry
ONYX and PEARL are toys that are specifically for couples in long-distance relationships As I said before, the idea is cool.
No more embarrassing phone sex attempts, no more sad solo masturbation… but finally the possibility of, regular sexual contact to your partner… even if “only” via the Internet (via WLAN or even via the mobile network You see and hear your partner AND you can feel his movements.
Well, the idea is good, the implementation is still a little bit lacking. The Toys react time-delayed and not 100% accurate. When both the technical transfer, as well as Toy processing (keyword ‘crack in the hose’) AND especially the price is being worked on, these toys could be interesting for the masses turn.
By the way, at the moment only ONYX can receive movements from PEARL and not vice versa; but KIIROO is already working on that. Furthermore – interesting for homosexual couples – there is currently only the possibility to couple ONYX and ONYX, but not PEARL and PEARL. Maybe there will also be.
By the wayIf you believe in the manufacturer’s website, you should consider the Software probably soon also as an app for your smartphone So perfect for everyone who has NO PC at home.
Update 01/2017: Meanwhile you can actually connect the Teledildonics to your smartphone via “App of Things”. You can find more info here.
The KIIROO software eats up by the way PC resources. An old and lame PC will probably cause some problems when using it. Especially during the Bluetooth search for the device, it sometimes forced my computer to its knees (Bluetooth was not active, though).
So, if you ask me: If you’re not really hot on it and always need the latest toy, I would advise you to wait for further development and then hit it first. OR You keep an eye on the prices of the KIIROO devices until we have a more reasonable price/performance ratio. If the prices drop, which I assume, that would also be an option.
But now I’m curious about your opinion: What do you think of this new, modern way of masturbation? Would you invest in such a technique or would you rather wait until it is more mature? Off to the comments with it!
