As the cultural renaissance of male masturbation continues (it’s one of the most healthy forms of sexual release and can help achieve some of the most intense orgasms), it’s no surprise that the men’s toy market is booming. From vibrating cock rings to incredibly realistic masturbation sleeves, the best sex toys for guys come in all shapes and sizes to fit your personal pleasure needs — whether you want to stimulate your penis or masturbate with a partner.
According to a recent survey by pleasure aid brand Womanizer, on average, men masturbate 155 times per year, or nearly three times each week. So, we consulted sex experts to share their favorite men’s sex toys that are sure to please — no matter your price range.
Many of the best sex toys for men work to enhance masturbation by enhancing sensations on your genitals and can be used both solo or with a partner, and in some cases, can even be inserted into the prostate. But, as the old saying goes, “different strokes for different folks.” And to ensure you get the most out of your sex toy, you’ll want to choose the right size and texture. To help you make an informed purchase, we’ve compiled the most popular options available, including ones that are ideal for beginners and others that are best suited for more experienced men.
This guy-friendly stroker from sex toy brand Hot Octopuss uses the company’s patented Pulse Plate Technology to deliver intense vibrations along the entire length of your shaft — and it can be used while your dick is flaccid or erect. This newest version of the toy boasts 25% more power than its predecessors, and its durable skin-safe outer case is adjustable to fit any sized penis.
Another favorite among our panelists, this German-made toy from sex toy maker Satisfyer is made with Cyberskin — a soft, ribbed material that’s super easy to clean. Duran says the toy’s internal design features a variety of grooves, ridges, angles, and bumps that give your penis an exciting ride. He adds that the toy also works great for stroking with your hands and with a partner during oral sex.
The Ohnut is a more subtle alternative to a Fleshlight, and is described by sex therapist Steven Snyder as “a really hot thing.” The toy’s flexible inner core can be held over the head of your penis or up the shaft, and its case has a clear outer layer to allow you to see what’s happening inside. The toy comes with six speed settings and is compatible with water-based lube.
