I’m fascinated by Rocks Off toys but I only have one of their vibrators, so I decided to expand my collection. I was given the opportunity to test a product for the lovely people at FeelFrisky (thank you!) and I chose the beautiful Rocks Off Feranti Hoopla. I was intrigued by the unusual shape and the luscious design, and Good Housekeeping reviewers rated it quite high which tempted me to make this choice!
Feel Frisky are a friendly team who respond to messages quickly. I was delighted with their speedy delivery (they post first class and my item arrived the next day) and their discreet packaging; the outer box doesn’t display the website’s name so your postman will be unaware of what’s inside! The inner box was bubble wrapped to avoid any damage in transit, and there was some information regarding returns.
Packaging & Looks
The Rocks Off Feranti Hoopla’s packaging is impressive; a slim box which looks like it houses something special inside. Some brief instructions adorn the rear side.
Unfortunately the inner packaging isn’t quite so impressive; cheap plastic housing holds the beautiful product which looks out of place, it should be laid upon a velvet storage bag! Sadly there is no storage bag which would’ve been a nice extra. The instruction sheet suggests you keep the box for storage, but I’ll purchase a bag separately. The USB charging cable is placed behind the plastic packaging along with a single sheet of instructions. For a product in this price range, I would’ve expected a little better.
However, the product is the main attraction here and it certainly doesn’t disappoint; silky feeling pink silicone wraps around a gold band, with the Rocks Off logo embossed in the silicone. This could give a bit of extra sensation! I excitedly ran my fingers over it; it feels lovely and the silicone is clearly high quality. The ring is larger and chunkier than it looks in pictures and has a bit of weight. It doesn’t look like a sex toy, so if you prefer something a little more subtle then this ticks that box. I was really excited to get it plugged in and charged up!
You will need to pierce the silicone with the charger the first time you use your Rocks Off Feranti Hoopla. The USB cable can be plugged into a mains adapter or USB port. The product didn’t come with a mains adapter but toys rarely do, and I’ve always got a spare one at home.
My first thought was… what do I do with it? It isn’t immediately obvious, so I ran it over my body and went with whatever felt good. There are 10 functions including 7 patterns, and on switching the Feranti Hoopla on it starts on the highest constant speed. I find it powerful enough to be able to reach climax at the second highest speed.
The vibrations are a mixture; some of the patterns start quite deep and others are a little buzzy. Noise wise it’s no louder than any of my other toys; for discreet usage you may want to put some music on!
I started to run the ring up and down my body by placing my thumb inside, and my second and third fingers on the outside. The gentle rolling feels delightful, the vibrations coupled with the soft silicone feels sensual as the Hoopla caresses every inch of my body. I made a mental note to try this with my hubby as an erotic massager, and carried on.
I decided to move the ring to a more intimate area, so I covered it in water-based lube. Although the silicone is soft, there are some ridges where the embossed logo is and that’s where I concentrated the lube.
Switching the Hoopla to a pattern, I roll it up and down my labia. The vibration is quite strong, and the up and down movement is sensational. I switch to a constant speed and, parting my labia, I stroke the Hoopla over my clitoris, rolling it up and down and twisting the Hoopla side to side. It feels effortless as the Hoopla is easy to move in a rocking or circling motion, and the embossed part is perfect for a bit of textured stimulation.
I love the ridges rolling over my clit as I circle around it, and I feel my orgasm building several times before I roll the Hoopla away. Then, I come back for more, pressing more firmly into my clit with the ridges and circling again, this time in smaller circles. My orgasm builds again, I spread my legs wide and press down even harder on my clit. I reach a body shaking orgasm as I push the silicone into me as hard as I can handle, wow!
In the bath
I used the Hoopla in the bath for some aquatic play! I occasionally enjoy using toys with water, but I wouldn’t recommend using an internal toy in the bath in case you get bath water inside you. As this is an ‘outy’ not an ‘inny’, it’s fine to use it whilst submerged in water. The water reduces some of the noise, and the vibrations feel very sexy coupled with warm water, bubbles and candlelight. Try rolling it all over your body, it’s a nice way to build up to a steamy session!
For an item listed as a couples toy, the colour isn’t really gender neutral. But hubby didn’t seem to mind too much!
I asked him to give me an all over body massage with the Hoopla. He obliged and put his thumb inside the ring, rolled it up and down my back, and then down the backs of my legs. The vibrations give a sensual massage that little bit extra.
I switch to focus on him; he isn’t keen on massage so I use it on his intimate parts as I masturbate him. Pushing the Hoopla against his balls, the vibrations can be felt as I slowly and teasingly bring him to orgasm. He enjoys the extra sensation, and it’s no extra effort from me as I cup his balls with the ring in my hand. I use lube again to ensure the ring feels comfortable. I also like to roll it up and down the underside of his shaft, to give an added sensation. It’s quite a versatile toy for couples!
My favourite way to use the Rocks Off Feranti Hoopla is to let my pussy explore the little nubs and ridges, rocking the ring back and forth and also circling it around my clit. I also like to occasional increase the pressure by pushing it down and switching the patterns.
It’s easy to clean the Feranti Hoopla as it’s 100% waterproof. Simply wash with soap and water, then I like to follow with a spritz of sex toy cleaner and rinse again under the tap. I find soap gets stuck in between the ridges so take care to ensure the ridged part is properly rinsed.
