A lot of people assume that men don’t care about toys for self-pleasure, but the truth is that good male masturbation toys can take your sex life to new heights. And whether you’re solo or with a partner, sexy self-pleasure can be one of the healthiest ways to destress and even boost your immune system (it releases mood-boosting oxytocin, too).
In this men’s sex toy renaissance, guys are getting high-tech masturbation sleeves, massagers for the G-spot, and more. Here, experts recommend their favorite masturbation products for men — from super-sexy masturbation strokers to a ring toy that’s like two toys in one.
The Fleshlight Flight Pilot, which slicks on like a condom and is oh-so-soft, was a top pick for many of our experts. It has multiple vibration modes and is water-resistant, making it a great choice for beginners or those with sensitive sex. The app-controlled Lovense Max 2 is another top choice, allowing you or your partner to control the pleasure settings from anywhere in the room. And, as a bonus, this toy comes with lube in the box.
A few of our experts adored the Tenga Flip Zero, which looks like something from Star Trek and features vibrating cores that are customizable by removing or adding pieces. “You can really create your own sexy stroker,” says a sex expert who recommends the toy. “It has all kinds of grooves, bumps, and cutouts that will give you different sensations and let your genitalia explore things it hasn’t felt before.”
If you want to try a more traditional stroker but don’t want to spend much money, the Fun Factory Manta is one of our top picks. It’s made with a soft, textured material and has six vibration speeds and patterns to keep you satisfied (think Inspector Gadget, only less phallic).
Many people think of the prostate as a gland in the butt, but it’s actually a nerve-ending pleasure center that can trigger some of the most intense orgasms. To help you get to know yours, a couple of our experts suggest the We-Vibe Vector, which is a dual-motor toy designed to hit your prostate or perineum (that’s the area between your testicles and butt).
The nJoy Pure Wand is another good prostate massager, with ridges and bumps that feel great as it slides down your penis. It also has a rotating tip and a handle that moves with you, so it’s easy to maneuver. Another option is the ThruSkin Satisfyer, which is a ring toy with a soft, ribbed exterior that feels super smooth on your penis and is waterproof.
