If you’re looking to spice up your anal play or are just curious about sex toys, the options out there are endless. Whether you’re into vibration, suction or strokers, there’s an option for everyone. And with the rise of smarts, there are even sex toys that work with your phone to add an extra dimension to masturbation.
A popular male masturbator that’s a little different than most is the Fleshlight Flight Pilot, which has multiple settings to choose from (though if you want to kick things up a notch, download the app and you or your partner can control the toy remotely). It also comes with a built-in LED and can be used in the shower to get the job done in style.
It’s important to remember that, no matter what kind of sex toys you use, you always need plenty of lube to make it all work properly. We recommend consulting our best lube guide for recommendations and making sure you’re stocked up before you start shopping. If you’re ready to splurge, Lovehoney has some great deals on the sexiest lube around.
Another good option is the Flip Zero EV, a toy that has bumps and swirls along its internal sleeve to target your penis’ head and frenulum. “The sleeve is very rumbly and has a really cool shape that flexes to enfold your shaft,” says Azmi, who recommends this one for men with flaccid penises. The toy is also a great choice for masturbation or spicing up oral sex with your partner.
The Handy stroker from Japanese sex toy maker TENGA has a similar design to the Fleshlight Flight Pilot but works in a slightly different way. When it’s filled with lube, it creates a vacuum that feels like a blow job machine and is the “closest I’ve ever been to feeling a real hand or blowjob without having one,” says Procida. The toy’s sleeve can also be filled with a water-based lube, and it has an air hole that lets you control the amount of pressure created.
And for G-spot or prostate stimulation, try the Big Boy prostate massager from New York Toy Collective. It has 7 vibration functions ranging from heartwarming tremors to ground-shaking pulsations, so you can customize the experience depending on what turns you on. Plus, it’s easy to clean and doesn’t require a charger.
