When it comes to the best sex toys for men, the first step is getting past whatever’s kept you from using a male sex toy—alone or with a partner—up until now: a mildly Puritan shame about masturbation, the hassle of cleaning up, the fact that the best sex toys for men kinda look like alien appendages.
Or maybe it’s the misguided notion that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Following the Malcolm Gladwellian 10,000-hour theory, you feel like an expert in the field. Who needs silicone when you’ve got your hands? A harder, stronger, and more life-affirming orgasm sounds nice, but how much room for improvement from a prostate massager or a male masturbator could there really be?
A lot. The best men’s sex toys do for masturbation what hot sauce does for a couple of perfectly over-medium eggs—take a great thing to whole new heights. Adult toys do things you and your partner can’t, no matter how advanced your yogic practices are. And unless you’re Sting, you can’t make your penis vibrate on its own. You’re also going to struggle—by virtue of the limitations of the human anatomy—to stimulate your own prostate, a.k.a. the male G-spot, while simultaneously working the front. That’s where vibrators, prostate massagers, and butt plugs come in.
But we’re jumping ahead. Even if you’re not ready to explore self-guided butt stuff, plenty of sex toys will kick-start your Masturbator game from good to great to apologizing to the neighbors. Some of these toys are also great to use with a partner. Or not! The next time you could use a little self-love, give your hands a break and your body a whole new silicone sensation. (Maybe throw one in your Amazon cart the next time you need paper towels.) It’s time to get fresh, and maybe a little weird, with your self-sex. Here are the best sex toys for men out there.
Best Male Masturbator: Fleshlight Quickshot
While you’re likely aware of the infamous Fleshlight, the first and most well-known male masturbator, you might not know that the manufacturers came out with what they call the Quickshot. It’s smaller than the original, with only 3.5 inches to insert your penis, meaning it (likely) won’t cover the entire shaft. But the perks are that it’s easy to store discreetly, and doesn’t look like a typical Fleshlight, which isn’t necessarily something you want a casual hookup to stumble on.
The Best Lube: Lelo Personal Moisturizer
Lelo Personal Moisturizer
Maybe you wouldn’t consider lubing a “sex toy” on its own, but a good bottle of lube is essential to the functioning of pretty much all of them. (That prostate massager needs a little help getting where it needs to go, right?) This one is water-based, which means it’s compatible with silicone toys. And the bottle looks just like a high-end lotion—but your CeraVe is nowhere near this fun.
Best Cock Ring: Lelo Tor 2
Lelo “Tor 2” Couples’ Vibrating Ring
The LELO Tor does its job simply, and it does its job well. The vibrations are strong. It fits snuggly against the shaft of your penis, but it’s not too tight. The more bulbous top of the toy applies pressure and stimulates your partner’s clitoris. It feels good for you and everyone involved. Pro tip: If you finish first and your partner hasn’t, take the Tor and place it on your middle and ring fingers while you finger her. She’ll likely appreciate the vibrations.
The Best Powerful Cock Ring
Je Joue Mio Luxury Rechargeable Vibrating Cock Ring
This vibrating cock ring works just as well as the Lelo but operates with a slightly lower frequency rumble. Can’t hurt to have options—it’s like you’re some kind of orgasm sommelier!
The Best Affordable Masturbation Toy: Tenga Egg
Is the Tenga Egg masturbator going to change your sex life? No. Will you use it to masturbate every single time? Absolutely not. But for less than seven dollars an egg, this super-stretchable elastomer sleeve can become one of many tools in your jerk box to switch things up when the old-fashion way starts growing stale.
Another Great Single-Use Stroker: Pocket Pool Sure Shot
Pocket Pool Sure Shot
The Pocket Pool Sure Shot is a simple one-timer: It’s super discreet (the packaging basically makes it impossible to know exactly what it is), and the sleeve comes pre-lubricated for ease of entry with an eye-roll-inducing vacuum effect.
The Highest-Tech Masturbation Toy: Lelo F1s V2
Lelo F1s V2 Male Vibrator
More fun with solo sex? There’s an app for that. Lelo’s new F1S V2 is the Maybach of masturbation toys: it’s incredibly powerful, extra soft, and stretchy on the inside, and has ten sensors allowing for feedback, and the whole experience is totally customizable through the Lelo app on your phone.
Best Prostate Massager: Lelo HUGO
Lelo “Hugo” prostate massager
While the LELO Hugo is pricey, it’s our favorite prostate massager currently on the market. You tilt the remote to control the strength and location of the vibrations. So if you tilt it to the left, the vibrations will be stronger on the left side. With the Hugo, you can pinpoint exactly where in your behind you experience the most pleasure and focus on those spots.
The Best For Both You And Her: Lovehoney Bionic Bullet
Lovehoney Bionic Bullet
The Bionic Bullet has a little something for both you and her. With two rings—one to wrap around the base of your penis and the other to gently grip your testicles. The result is an amazing hands-free “locked and loaded” feeling, making you ready for a harder and longer sex session. The rechargeable rabbit, which connects to the ring, not only vibrates but will also stimulate the clitoris during penetration.
The Best-Looking Stroking Toy: Tenga Crysta
Tenga’s Crysta is a super-smooth reusable male masturbation that looks like an alien artifact. It uses floating textures for pleasure and a unique sensation on impact. Once you’ve done your thing, the Crysta is easy to clean and comes with a stand to aid in fully air drying between uses.
Best Non-vibrating Masturbation Sleeve: TENGA Zero Flip
TENGA Zero Flip Hole Luxury Male Masturbator
When you open the TENGA flip, it looks like the insides of an alien, but that’s what makes it feel so good. There are various ridges and grooves inside the masturbation sleeve, which allow for different sensations. Few other masturbation sleeves are built like this. Most Fleshlights, for example, are simply smooth inside.
Best Rimming S(t)imulator: b-Vibe Rimming Plug 2
b-Vibe Rimming Plug 2
The b-Vibe is the only butt plug on the market that simulates rimming or “analingus” using rotating beads. While it doesn’t feel as pleasurable as a partner’s tongue, it still feels pretty damn good and doesn’t require you to ferociously clean out beforehand. While not necessary with a partner, I highly recommend you do. It’s also a simple entry for men who want to explore anal play but aren’t quite ready to shove a dildo in there yet.
Best Blowjob Accessory: LoveHoney BlowYo Extreme Wave Textured Blowjob Stroker
LoveHoney BlowYo Extreme Wave Textured Blowjob Stroker
At first glance, the BlowYo is confusing. It’ll only cover a small portion of one’s penis with its stretchable silicone, and it’s totally useless while masturbating. But give it a go with your partner while receiving oral and you’ll find that the BlowYo can replicate the act of being deepthroated. The below covers your lower shaft, while your partner tackles the upper shaft and tip with their mouth.
