Boy toys have never been this cool.
We’ve always been fans of Japan-based TENGA’s art-centric male pleasure items (a.k.a masturbation sleeves) and we’re thrilled to announce their collaboration with The Keith Haring Foundation! TENGA is proud to be the first brand in this category to bring forward a collaboration with such a recognized and celebrated artist. They’ve selected five of Haring’s iconic artworks for integration into the packaging and design of their CUP and EGG series.
The TENGA CUPS ($10) are the first in TENGA’s arsenal of revolutionary male pleasure items. Pre-lubricated for ease of use, these devices can be enjoyed by simply opening the sealed cap at the bottom. With 40 complex internal textures and malleable sides, you can easily achieve an optimal sensation.
The TENGA EGGS ($8) are without a doubt one of the most discreet pleasure products for men on the market. These egg-shaped masturbation sleeves offer several unique internal textures and a super-stretchy elastomeric gel that can cover any size. It also functions as a sleeve for any standard vibe, dildo or wand, just flip it inside out.
TENGA x Keith Haring is now available for purchase exclusively at the Museum in-store and online. Guys, the future of masturbation is really here.

About Keith Haring
Keith Haring was an artist and social activist who frequently used his art to speak out about social issues. He was one of the best known among the young visual artists, filmmakers, performers, and musicians whose work responded to the urban street culture of the 80s. Openly gay, Haring was diagnosed with AIDS in 1988, and in 1989 he established The Keith Haring Foundation, whose mission it is to support not-for-profit organizations that assist children, as well as organizations involved in education, research and care related to HIV and AIDS, as well as to sustain, expand, and protect the legacy of Keith Haring, his art, and his ideals.
TENGA Co., Ltd. was founded on the concept of bringing sex and sexuality to the forefront, for all to enjoy. On the 7th of July 2005, the “male pleasure item” brand TENGA was first released; a line of safe, functional, well-designed and above all enjoyable male pleasure items – products used for male masturbation. The revolutionary products did away with the obscene imagery and lewd products of the past, with pioneering design and technology creating products of functionality never seen before in the industry.
Their TENGA CUP, EGG, FLIP and the award-winning TENGA 3D serve to bring sexual health and wellness to the forefront, eradicating obscenity and taboos with function, style, and hygiene. Their TENGA 3D Series designed and produced by TENGA was awarded the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2012” by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany, and was the first ever male masturbation aid to win the prestigious design award.
