Screaming O Charged Skooch Vibrating Cock Ring with Fins

I’m sorry to say that I can’t endorse Screaming O products any longer after the company’s multiple fuck-ups regarding the “Truth about Body-Safe” panel at the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit 2017. First, the panel itself included several paid contractors of Screaming O who spread misinformation about safe sex toy materials, like that sanitizing silicone dildos by boiling makes them more porous/less body-safe, and that silicone toys are too expensive when there are lots of quality silicone dildos available for under $30. (See link to full panel transcript here.) After the panel, Screaming O decided to post a video including the panel’s Q-and-A session without the consent of the audience participants (some of whom are anonymous, like me). If you’re at all bothered by Screaming O’s actions, I very strongly recommend Tantus’ cock rings instead.

Screaming O’s Charged Skooch Cock Ring not only vibrates, but has fins. My first reaction to this was, “Well, I don’t have much of a marine-life fetish, but sure, I’ll try it…” Jokes aside, I’m glad my partner and I did add this cock ring into our sex life. Here’s what we liked and didn’t like!Charged Skooch cock ring Charged Vooom Bullet by Screaming O with fish

Facts about My Skooch

I’m guessing that Screaming O wants “Skooch” to mean “cock,”1 though it also reminds me of “snatch,” unfortunately.

Beyond the silly name, though, the Charged Skooch does have a lot going for it. It’s made of stretchy body-safe silicone, plus it has the vibe option. The included vibe is the Charged Vooom Bullet, which is USB rechargeable and has three steady settings plus seven patterned ones.

So how does this package of stretchy silicone ring, fins, and vibe feel in use?

Riding the Skooch

Once we got my husband’s cock lubed up, putting the Charged Skooch on took just a little maneuvering. The ring does stretch a good bit, as we later found out. But first we tried the position that the Skooch’s fins were designed for: with the fins and vibe on the front of his cock. This way, it would rub my vulva as we faced each other, either cowgirl or missionary style.

I have to admit that I was a little afraid of the fins at first. I’m not the type of vulva-owner that the Charged Skooch’s fins were designed for, because my clit wants to be left alone when I have something in my vagina. That said, I tried this position out, for science!

When they hit my vulva, the Charged Skooch’s fins weren’t painful for me like I feared they would be. They’re pretty flexible, but not squishy, so they do provide a good amount of stimulation. I wanted to like them, but the fins messed up my groove as I rode my partner (who I’ll call “Dick” for the rest of this review because I’m cheesy like that). Dick liked the vibration against his penis, but he really likes vibration against his balls. So we flipped the Skooch around.

Now I was still on top, cowgirl, but the Charged Skooch’s fins were on the underside of Dick’s cock, the vibe resting on top of his scrotum. As I started riding again, I realized that the Skooch’s fins were stimulating my perineum (taint) lightly—and it felt great. Throughout all Skooch testing after this, I’ve found that I really like the way the fins flick against the space behind my vag; they tease and tickle. Plus the vibration feels nice so close to my asshole.

Dick and I tried for the same taint-tickling effect in doggy style—with the fins and vibe on the top of his penis again. Sadly,2 I couldn’t get the same level of perineum-plus-G-spot stimulation as I could in cowgirl. In this position, I most noticed that his length was less with the cock ring on. I was A-OK with this, but he likes to go as deep as possible when thrusting doggy-style.

So I had found how I preferred to use the Charged Skooch, but Dick wasn’t done yet. He wanted to stretch this C-ring to its full potential.

Oh, Balls…

At first I thought we weren’t going to be able to get the Charged Skooch over Dick’s balls without permanent damage to either him or the cock ring. But we stretched it, and then stretched just a little more; he held his cock and one side of the Skooch while I gently moved the expanded ring over his scrotum. Finally it was in place—not without the loss of a few pubic hairs.3

Dick loved the vibrations on the underside of his ball sack. We’ve recently begun using a We-Vibe Tango on his balls during PIV, but it’s difficult for me to hold the rumbly Tango for long while my wrist is pounded by his thigh. A vibrating cock ring is a much better solution, as it not only provides vibration, but it gives that feeling of fullness and pressure on his balls.

His erection felt slightly harder and fuller4 as he penetrated me. After he came, he said that it was the longest and hardest orgasm he remembered having. The vibrations, he says, feel like a tongue licking his scrotum—something he enjoys a lot.

But how strong is the vibrating bullet?

The Charged Vooom Bullet

The Recharged Skooch’s Charged Vooom Bullet5 is fairly powerful but not intense. It’s miles ahead of Screaming O’s battery-powered bullets,6 but definitely buzzier7 than the We-Vibe Tango. For me, this is a relief, as I don’t actually like to use the Tango directly on my clit—it’s just too intense.

In contrast, the Charged Vooom bullet has much more middle-of-the-road vibrations; it’s also higher-pitched and slightly louder than the Tango in use. I actually really like several of the patterned settings, though I may be the odd person out here. By itself, I would recommend the Charged Vooom to people who don’t like/need lots of power on their clits.

Dick doesn’t much care which setting the vibe is on; he usually picks the highest steady one or just goes for a random patterned one to change it up a bit. We did try inserting our We-Vibe Tango into the Charged Skooch’s bullet loop. The Tango was a little loose, but stayed in place both whether it was on top of or on the underside of his cock. But the Tango definitely isn’t a good fit when the Skooch is stretched around his balls—it’s just too long to fit between his thighs.

TL;DR

My husband and I both enjoy the Screaming O Charged Skooch Cock Ring a lot. In fact, we would’ve started trying out cock rings years ago if we’d realized that using one would make his orgasms so much more intense!

He doesn’t really care one way or another about the fins. (I’m sure he would’ve been just as happy with a standard vibrating cock ring, actually.) And since my clit usually likes to be left alone during PIV, I can’t get off on the fins and the bullet when they’re perched on top of my husband’s cock. But when we turn the Charged Skooch 180° around, I do like the way the fins flap against my perineum (taint). In this position, the bullet rests on top of his balls. This is good for him, but he really loves the vibrating sensation when the ring is stretched all the way around his balls.

I’d like to thank Peepshow Toys for sending me this ridiculously named cock ring in exchange for my honest review!

  1. Word-nerd detour here: I’m not sure anyone has used the word this way before. After its primary meanings, “scoot over” or “crouch down,” the Urban Dictionary lists “skooch” as meaning “a bothersome or nagging person.”
  2. For him, since he loves doggy. I could take it or leave it most of the time.
  3. He strongly recommends “manscaping” for more comfortable C-ring-over-balls placement.
  4. I don’t think the cock ring causes a big size difference, but I can feel a little extra firmness.
  5. No, that’s still not a typo. “Vooom” does in fact have three o‘s in it.
  6. I got one of these once with a Vixen Woody Vibe Kit. I basically had to finger myself with it to get off.
  7. That is, it has more shallow vibrations. See Epiphora’s “Buzzy vs. rumbly” post.
