Male sex toys are becoming increasingly creative and fun as their popularity continues to skyrocket. Whether it’s with solo ventures in mind or experimenting with a partner, there are plenty of exciting new options for men seeking enhanced pleasure.
Sex toys for men have been on the rise (see what I did there?) since the turn of the decade. We’ve seen a lot more emphasis put on sex education in the past few years and as a result, people are more open to discussion on how to increase sexual pleasure.
It all started with the humble fleshlight leading the charge, but things really got interesting when the powers of vibration for men were realised by manufacturers such as Tenga. They quickly began to gain a foothold in global markets with products like the Tenga Vacuum Cup and there was a huge influx of creative vibrating sex toys being designed specifically for men. From vibrating cockrings to cheap fleshlights, the industry began booming.
In the midst of all the excitement and experimentation there was a growing demand for prostate stimulating toys amongst heterosexual men. Vibrating prostate massagers offer a whole host of benefits, a recent study by Swedish sex toy manufacturer Lelo not only explored these benefits, but found that a staggering 71% of straight men had tried or were interested in experimenting with prostate massagers.
All toys featured below require lubrication, we usually opt for the best-selling Shibari Premium Personal Lubricant, but different lubes work best for different toys. You can head over to our post on the 10 Best Lubes to find out more about which suits which.
Let’s cut to the chase and take a quick look at a variety of different toys that can help increase sexual pleasure and see how much bang you get for your buck.

Now we’ve given you a brief overview, lets go into a little more depth with each product. Our rankings are based on a mix of personal experience and consumer reviews from around the internet.
Below is a list of the best men’s sex toys available, ranked with value for money in mind.
Tenga Flip Hole
The Tenga Flip Hole is absolutely wonderful to use. The textures on the inside vary depending on which color device you get, but each deliver a stimulation that is unrivaled by it’s competitors. It’s really good at retaining lubricant so you don’t see the same level of leakage as you would with cheaper vacuum sleeves. This product has proved so popular that it even has it’s own specially formulated lubricant.
Tenga have really hit the spot with the Flip Hole, the design overcomes one of the biggest issues with the existing fleshlights; cleaning up. If you’ve ever used a fleshlight before you’ll know they can be a bit of a pain to clean afterwards. No such problems here though, the device flips open and to allow for rinsing and can be left open to dry.
It’s made from a soft elastomer material which is durable and feels absolutely amazing. The control the device provides helps you to keep yourself on edge without pushing too far. Regular use of a controlled device like this can even lead to better orgasm control in the bedroom and prolonged orgasms with a partner!
It really is a huge step forward in male masturbation toys, and we can’t sing it’s praises highly enough. Take a look at some of the outstanding reviews it’s received by clicking the button below.Check Price
Pink Lady Stamina Training Fleshlight
Quite simply the best of the best when it comes to traditional fleshlights. Designed with solo practice in mind, this stamina training unit fleshlight provides the most realistic texture out there. The inside of the fleshlight is ribbed for additional stimulation and is a snug fit for the average man.
It does a good job of containing lubricant and not letting it run out all over the place as with cheaper models. We had good results using a Natural Water Based Lubricant to avoid stickiness. We were pleasantly surprised how easy cleaning up was, the material washes clean and dries remarkably quickly given the shape.Check Price
The value for money prize definitely goes to the Utimi Fleshlight. While there is a noticeable drop in quality of the lining when compared the luxury fleshlights, it’s not something you can hold against it considering the price difference.
It won’t blow your mind if you’re already accustomed to sex toys, but it’s comfortable and very easy to operate one handed. There aren’t too many issues with leakage and the insert is removable to make cleaning a little easier. It’s a good starting fleshlight for those who are new to sex toys and offers incredible value if bought as a gift for a partner.Check Price
LVENI G Point Stimulate Prostate Massager
The LVENI G Point Prostate Massager is little different from the other masturbation aids on this list. Not only does regular prostate massage have proven health benefits, it’s also capable of producing mind-blowing orgasms. It’s a truly unique experience that you’ll never regret trying.
The key is to use plenty of lubrication and to take things slowly, the product itself is super smooth and fits easily. This waterproof silicone toy is perfect for use in a shower setting and makes for great fun when used with a partner. We’ve rated it four stars because we thought the vibration could have been a little stronger (even at the max setting) and it may be a bit daunting for inexperienced adventurers.Check Price
Tenga Easy Beat Egg Masturbator
Small and discreet, these innocent looking Tenga Easy Beat Egg sex toys are perfect for carrying while travelling. The sensation is mostly focused on the tip of the penis which makes for intense finishes.
Possibly the most playful toy on our list, these eggs are great for introducing sex toys into couples sex. They come in packs of 6 and each egg has a different texture inside that really does make the sensation from each unique. They’re re-usable with careful cleaning, and we found that we could stretch it to about 5 uses before we saw them begin to wear.Check Price
Tenga 3D Sleeve – Spiral
Another popular favourite from Tenga, the 3d sleeve is discreet in appearance but offers a big improvement over a plain old hand. It’s design is a step away from the usual in-your-face sex toy, which makes it stand out. The shapes and textures inside vary between models, but we found the SPIRAL to be the perfect balance of stimulation vs friction.
Clean up is very easy but we’d definitely recommend investing in some antibacterial cleaner for this one since the deep grooves can mean missed areas when cleaning with just a rinse.
Tenga 3D Sleeves are also available in other textures: MODULE, PILE, POLYGON and ZEN, each with a different pattern and sensation.Check Price
An Introduction To Men’s Sex Toys
In recent years, male experimentation with sex toys both alone and with a partner has been on quite the rise. For years the idea of using sex toys was just a staple for women in an attempt to shorten the blatant orgasm gap between the sexes, since the number of men who orgasm regularly from sex with a partner is consistently much higher than the number of women who orgasm regularly during sex with a partner. Lately, however, men seem to be warming up to the idea of personal use.
The Main Types of Male Sex Toys
Evidence of this phenomenon comes with the Fleshlight, a popular male masturbatory device that has become a pretty recognizable name (and certainly the butt of many jokes).
As prevalent as the Fleshlight is, there are many more popular sex toys for men on the market as well. The aforementioned sex toy is one of several “masturbators” that are designed to provide physical pleasure for men in the same way a hand-job provides pleasure, except without direct hand contact. Some are also designed with “stamina training” in mind, so that a man with a habit of ejaculating prematurely would be able to increase his stamina over time through solo practice. For both stamina training and pleasure, masturbators are usually designed to feel as close to the real thing as possible. They can come the size of a small sheath (like the Fleshlight) or as a life size body cast of different body parts such as a pelvis or torso (oftentimes in the guise of a popular porn star).
Another popular type of male sex toy is the cock ring, which is worn at the base of the penis in order to provide harder, stronger erections and prolonged pleasure. There are some that come with a vibrating feature for increased stimulation and pleasure. Other sex toys are made specifically for vibration as well, like prostate massagers and bullet vibes. These are designed to provide increased stimulation and pleasure via the prostate, the testicles, or the perineum instead of just the penis.
Lastly, as many people know, there are sex dolls. These are designed for a more holistic masturbatory experience, where one can act out and explore one’s erotic fantasies more thoroughly in a sort of safe space without a live partner. A wide variety of sex dolls are available on the market, ranging from comical blow up sex dolls that look like anime characters to high end tin cure or platinum cure silicone specially made for durability and elasticity.
The Benefits of Sex Toy Use
The increased use of sex toys by men offers many benefits for those who are comfortable using them both by themselves and accompanied by a sexual partner. The first and most obvious benefit is increased physical pleasure. Sex toys that focus on vibration like bullet/egg vibrators or massagers stimulate areas other than the penis for pleasure. When used in conjunction with penile stimulation, it can be incredibly pleasurable for men.
The difference in pleasure for men is not only through physical sensation, but also from psychological stimulation; the novelty of these new sexual experiences as well as the possibility of exploring fantasies further. Additionally, using sex toys can give the illusion that something is being done to you instead of by you, which tends to be more pleasurable for men.
Another benefit of experimenting with sex toys is that it allows men to get more acquainted with their bodies and their own specific sexual preferences without the threat of embarrassment. Society has become more and more sexually liberated over the past few decades, but a lot of that evolution has been focused on women. While much has been done to combat society’s unfounded negative views of women when it comes to sex, the same can’t be said about society’s expectations of men and the multitude of perpetuated sexual stereotypes. Sex is normally seen as very physical and penis oriented for guys, while for women it usually has deeper emotional and full body connotations. Because of this, many men have learned to focus on a woman’s entire body while only focusing on only one specific part of their own bodies. Sex toys, especially vibrators, allow men to explore other parts of their bodies and determine from where they can derive pleasure if not via the penis. Men generally have similar erogenous zones when compared to women, so exploring those areas with a vibrator or even just with their hands could be a very informative and revealing experience for men.
A Learning Experience
As men can get to know their bodies better through the use of sex toys, so can they realize their sexual preferences and fantasies. Imagination is the root of spontaneity in the bedroom, and that is brought about by the proper communication of one’s sexual desires. Sex dolls and masturbators allow for men to explore their side of certain fantasies such as anal sex and bondage scenarios without the risk of embarrassment.
Arguably the most important benefit that using male sex toys can offer is that they allow for a better understanding and a more fulfilling sexual relationship between partners. When sex toys are introduced into the bedroom as a way to explore or to augment sex sessions, men have the opportunity to share their sexual fantasies and preferences through a new experience with someone in whom they trust. Using sex toys for men with a partner not only spices up the sexual relationship with something out of the ordinary, but provides a partner with innovative ways of participating in a man’s sexual pleasure as well. Male masturbators and vibrators can easily be used as a means of foreplay, through both direct and indirect stimulation of male erogenous zones.
Of course, it is also increasingly common for men to use vibrators while having sex with a partner for added personal pleasure. Seeking increased pleasure together instead of focusing on the sexual pleasure of one party at a time is often far more fulfilling.
From the perspective of the partners, using sex toys during intercourse has the potential to be quite informative. Male sex toys could help partners get a clearer picture of what their partner likes in the bedroom, thus making them better and more attentive lovers. This is perfect for those who seek their partner’s pleasure, whether it be altruistically or indirectly for their own pleasure. In an emotional sense for the men, it creates the opportunity to build trust and to open up to a partner in a state of vulnerability in conjunction with the physicality of the acts themselves. Using sex toys with sexual partners instead of exploring different sexual fantasies and preferences by one’s lonesome often creates a unique bonding experience for couples, where the man, along with his preferences and fantasies, can be accepted amid his barefaced vulnerability.
The rise of male oriented sex toys in recent years has fostered the expansion and variety of sex toys on the market (companies are even making and selling sex robots now!) and has created a new way for men and their partners to view sex. With the improvements in sexual encounters from a personal standpoint as well as when it comes to couples sex, the rate of acceptance and use of sex toys by men can only go up.
It’s definitely the perfect time to get on board with male sex toys!
