From textured masturbation sleeves to prostate massagers, men’s sex toys have come a long way from flesh lights. The latest offerings are sophisticated, discreet and a little bit weird in the best possible way, with a wide range of vibrating functions for your penis, anal, cock and vulva. These gadgets can block ejaculation and stimulate blood flow, and some, like Je Joue’s Mio, are also ribbed for pleasure. For the most versatile sex toy, try a cock ring. Worn around the base of the shaft, this little toy is designed to halt premature ejaculation and enhance your orgasms by blocking and stimulating the nerve endings along the shaft and glans.
There are also a variety of strokers, or sleeve toys, that let you rub and thrust your penis for pleasure. Depending on the length of the sleeve, you can stroke the area of your choice and increase or decrease the intensity by turning the sleeve up or down. The sleeve can also be pumped in different directions for even more orgasm-inducing sensations. A sleeve can be used alone or with a partner, and is ideal for men who are new to masturbation.
Prostate massagers aren’t just for straight dudes, and they can be a powerful orgasm-inducer for solo time. A good option is the LELO Hugo, which has a dual-motor build that targets the G-spot, or male anal canal, and can be used with a partner. Another great prostate massager is the Tenuto couples toy from MysteryVibe, which has a smooth, curved wand with five speeds and seven vibrating beads.
For orally-oriented stimulation, a sex toy that looks like a dildo is sure to tickle the fancy of any guy. Frost’s favorite is the Manta, which she says is “unlike any stroker you can buy and features ridges to hold lube.” Another crowd-pleaser is the BJ Ring from Toy Collective, which has a flexible silicone ring that’s designed to flex, and that Kit Richardson, buyer for the Museum of Sex and MoSex Shop, calls “a real winner.”
Whether you’re looking to boost orgasms with an erection stimulator or elevate your masturbation routine, these best sex toys for guys will turn your self-pleasure sessions into a sensual ritual. As you explore your options, remember to use a high-quality lube and always practice good hygiene. And don’t forget a condom if necessary (read our guide to sex and health for more tips).
