Since our horniest ancestors started beating their meat, men have been using a variety of methods to self-pleasure. But it wasn’t until recent times that sex toys made their way into the mainstream, leaving guys with more options than ever. Whether you’re looking for something that stimulates the G-spot, prostate or anal area, there’s a toy for every guy’s pleasure needs. To help you find the perfect one for you, we consulted 17 experts—including sex shop owners and employees, sex educators, sex therapists, sex coaches and sex podcasters. They shared their top male sex toys, from a dildo that looks like an actual penis to a prostate massager that delivers mind-blowing orgasms.
Whether you’re looking for something that’s easy to clean or a masturbator that’s discreet enough to use in public, there’s a toy out there for you. Cam recommends a male sex toy from New York Toy Collective’s Shilo, which “looks and feels like an actual penis inside,” while Kit Richardson, buyer for the MoSex Shop, loves the Flip Zero. “It’s a clear stroker with a canal that opens at both ends, leading up to a molded dome and ridge wall for stroking and grip,” she says. It also comes in a range of skin tones and colors, making it easy to pair with your favorite lubricant.
If you want to go the extra mile, opt for a toy that can sync with 2D and VR videos through Kiiro’s FeelConnect app. The Lovense Edge 2, for example, can be controlled from your smartphone and has an adjustable arm that can find and sit on your P-spot for more targeted stimulation. It’s USB chargeable and can last for 1.7 hours continuously.
Another toy that goes under the radar is We-Vibe’s Vector, which Bard describes as a “masturbation sleeve disguised as a flashlight.” She says it has double motors—one in the prostate part and one underneath for the perineum (to learn more about the anatomy of your prostate, check out this graphic). She also recommends We-Vibe’s nJoy Pure Wand, a sleek G-spot stroker that also can be used as a prostate massager.
If you’re a fan of the Progasm from Aneros, which doesn’t have a special vibration motor but instead uses hand motions and kegel muscle contractions to achieve a pleasure impulse, check out the Fun Factory Cobra Libre II. It’s designed to stimulate the penile glans and frenulum for a revolutionary masturbation session that’s flexible and can be used with a partner or on your own.
