A good sex toy can instigate both solo de-stressing and couple’s playtime, but not all toys are created equal. The best male masturbation toys will offer a variety of sensations, fit comfortably in the hands and, most importantly, be compatible with your favorite lube. That’s why we talked to 17 blokes who work at sex shops, including shop owners and employees, sex educators, sex therapists, and sex coaches, to ask them what their favourite sex toys for guys are. We’ve also included the sexy pros’ tips to help you make an informed choice when shopping for your man.
A lot of the top male masturbation toys we spotted are designed to be used with a partner, and some even include remote controls that allow for easy and discreet sharing. But if you’re going to be spending the majority of your time alone with your sex toy, pay close attention to insertable length and width so that it feels comfortable in the hand. The more comfortable it is, the more orgasms you’ll get (and remember that orgasms are a super healthy and natural way to destress, plus they release immune-boosting oxytocin).
While strokers are generally soft sleeve upgraders for the penis, some have extra features like vibration and sonic stimulation tech that add up to serious pleasure. One of our top picks is the Satisfyer, which is made from Cyberskin, a stretchy material that’s super soft and smooth, and filled with ribbed ridges for tightening and gliding fun. It’s a hit among sex experts and shoppers.
Another option is the Ohnut, which has multiple ring-shaped protrusions to stimulate the glans and frenulum and can be used with or without an erection. This stroker is popular among sex therapists because it offers different textures and sensations, and the flexible rings are easy to remove for those who find them uncomfortable.
Lastly, a number of men’s sex toys are intended to be used on the balls. This includes strokers that have textured bumps, nodules and ridges lining the inside and the sleeve-like Flip Hole, which has two different pressure settings for stimulating the cock and the nipples, as well as a remote control that’s ideal for couple’s play.
Finally, a handful of men’s masturbation toys are specifically designed to stimulate the prostate, which can be an intense orgasm-inducing sensation for some guys. There are plenty of models to choose from, with a variety of insertable sizes. A few of our favourites are the Lelo Manta, which has a curved dual-motor build that delivers serious sensation in and out of the cup, as well as the Tenuto couples toy from MysteryVibe. It has a slim profile that fits comfortably in the hand and uses sonic and vibration tech to stimulate both sides of the prostate. It’s a real orgasm-inducer for men who are both straight and gay.
