FACT: Masturbation is a perfectly natural part of a healthy lifestyle. FACT: It’s estimated that about 80% of all men have jerked off at least once in their lifetime. GUESS: The other 20% are bold-faced liars. Sex toy manufacturers know that, which is why they’re constantly coming up with new and improved versions of their best stuff. Guys will always play with themselves whether they have synthetic devices or not. The point is that now they don’t have to hide in the basement or chase their climaxes in secrecy and shame. The world has finally warmed up to the idea of masturbation and along came the modern-day male vibrator with it. Oh, what a time to be alive.
Just know that it’s a slippery slope out there. The good news is that we now have more pleasure options than ever before in the history of mankind. The bad news is that the quantity has started to overwhelm our market, making it feel virtually impossible for the average Joe to select something worthy on his first try. Add in the fact that a majority of manufacturers claim their product to be the best and you have a recipe for frustration, disappointment and damaging misinformation. Some male vibrators naturally rise to the top of the heap, though, so those are the ones we’ll pay the most attention to. After all, no amount of clever advertising can outwit the value of fine craftsmanship and truly enjoyable penis pleasures.
There are so many vibrators available today that it would take two lifetimes to play with them all. Like books, movies and love songs – three things that are also prevalent in our society – sex toys for men come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and styles, from small and compact to large and in charge. They all have their own unique features too, including some with extremely high-tech capabilities and others crafted with simplicity as the main objective. It all depends on what you’re looking for, so don’t fall for the hype just because you’re uninformed or inexperienced. Start you search the wise way by checking out this year’s top 10 best male vibrators:
The Autoblow Automilker is the world’s very first male vibrator with such a pleasurable and user-friendly design. Open-ended and stretchy to accommodate nearly all penis sizes, this silky stroking device is made by the same company that brought you another industry innovation – the Autoblow A.I. This hollow, silicone sleeve wraps around the shaft of your penis and can be used in almost any way imaginable. Its dual vibrating motors send shock waves of delight to your shaft at varying speeds and strengths, while the versatile ergonomics allow you to pinpoint the frenulum for maximum stimulation. Using the same technology as today’s leading medical experts, this bad boy offers hands-free orgasms and a chance to perform at your peak potential.
Despite providing quick and easy fun, this device still needs manual power to make it work. Regardless, the 100% silicone enclosure only partially clasps together, leaving room for flaccid penis while making the Automilker ideal for men with erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease. There’s even a little perineum pad on one end which tickles your taint and balls as it vibrates – the perfect accompaniment to couple’s play, solo stimulation and/or erotic experimentation.
The Kiiroo brand is based out of Amsterdam but their products sell to all four corners of the world because of their commitment to excellence. The newest addition to their inventory, the TITAN automatic male stroking machine, features a series of vibrations that can rattle the brain while gently juicing the main vein. Its powerful mechanisms are housed inside a thick, durable casing that’s made from industry-leading materials, plus the masturbation sleeve is crafted out of silky-smooth silicone – the perfect accompaniment to any water-based lubricant you own. Best of all, it’s one of the industry’s most beloved vibrators and it’s perfect for real-time interactions in long-distance relationships.
The Kiiroo TITAN uses teledildonic technology to integrate two compatible sex toys for an enhanced masturbation experience. With a simple Bluetooth connection, this mighty machine also allows its users to sync their device with a massive online porn library (even the 3D kind with the help of some good VR equipment). Solo or supported orgasms are made easy with the 9 vibrating bullets jerking at preset speeds and patterns, and the touch-sensitive control pad helps make control and customization of the sensations a cinch. The whole thing is, of course, rechargeable via USB and the manufacturer even offers free software updates on a regular basis.
The LELO F1S Devloper’s Kit is the world’s very first male vibrator equipped with an SDK-available SexTech Platform. What does that mean? It means users can go in and tinker with the operations of the machine first-hand, personally determining the way it functions with the push of a button (or two). Consumers who consummate their climaxes with this bad boy get immediate access to the maker’s Developer’s Software that boasts exclusive features, user-friendly formatting, and performance enhancement tools. The device itself runs through 10 preset pleasure settings, all of which are controlled by a conveniently placed built-in panel or with the compatible smart phone app that comes ready to download.
Inside the app, men can quickly finagle with their device’s functionality while running tests on their stamina and/or inviting a partner to play along. Remotely experiment with a series of sophisticated sensors to generate the best possible experience or hand the controls over to your partner for a totally sexy surprise. The only drawback is that there’s a slight learning curve when it comes to using this thing as intended, so don’t throw away those instructions in the box because you might need them again later (especially if you plan to introduce its awesomeness to another person).
You probably know Fleshlight for its wide selection of high-end manual masturbators for men. Many of their devices have become synonymous with great sex, and the Vibro collection is no exception. It combines the same body-friendly ergonomics and discreet design as the original Fleshlight masturbator with the updated technology of insertable vibrating bullets. Each sleeve features a set of specialized holes that house the vibrations, and users can choose whether they want the extra sensations or not. Used alone or with a partner, alongside the vibrating bullets or not, the Fleshlight Vibro Lady/Butt is the real deal Holifield in more ways than one.
For example, it uses the brand’s patented SuperSkin material on its sleeve which, by the way, opens up to a specialty texture that’s uniquely designed to pinpoint the nerve endings on the average man’s penis. The orifice is nice and tight, the pussy detailing is on point, and the weight distribution is ideal for most guys. Consumers can also choose between several popular porn star molds and use the device with the brand’s automatic stroking machine, the Launch, thanks to the standard dimensions of the casing. Pair the superior realism of this male vibrator with the power of virtual reality to remind yourself of why you enjoy jerking off in the first place.
The TENGA brand shocked consumers when it introduced the world’s very first male vibrator with a hinged design. The Flip Zero EV is made to be especially pleasurable and convenient for men with sexual health concerns like erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease, but it’s also an ideal tool for guys looking for a little help in the stamina department. This bad boy has a delicately textured masturbation canal but it’s not compatible with any other sex toy on the market, meaning you’ll have to use it alone or with a strong-armed partner. It does have a few customizable features, however, and I think most men would want to know about that.
For one, manual pressure pads allow men to tailor suction levels within the chamber. Two: The innovative, open-ended design of this handy-dandy dick teaser makes it super easy to clean and maintain. It’s extra quiet, luxuriously soft, and has an impressive run time too. And thanks to the dual vibrating motors that are equally positioned within the toy’s semi-transparent plastic casing, users can see and feel a solid experience as it happens in real time. Scroll through five distinct pleasure settings via the built-in control panel and then recharge the device with its included USB cord for a long-lasting good time and naturally improved performance techniques.
Who says you can’t enjoy some rumbly vibrations without the whole world coming to a stop for it? Whether adding it to your already amazing masturbation session or using it with a partner, the LELO Tor 2 is designed to provide maximum stimulation to the penis while transferring that pleasure to your partner’s body in the most discreet way possible. Its robust construction is like that of something from the future – thick, smooth, all-inclusive and featuring ergonomic, high-tech components that are deliberately designed to make the experience easier for both partners. Enjoy a series of vibes through manual manipulation of the built-in controls and never buy another cock ring again.
The Tor 2 by LELO is ideal for kinky couples who want to enhance playtime without involving a penis stroking machine. It provides dual pleasures while keeping the majority of the organ free for additional stimulation, meaning it can also be paired with a good jerk off device if you use it right. The device doesn’t come in different sizes and you probably won’t find it in your local adult entertainment store, but this lightweight toy comes in three different colors (black, purple, and green) so at least you’ll look like a boss while you’re fumbling to fit it onto your penis.
Perfect your palm game with a device that adds a little more function to your fingertips. This completely manual male vibrator features an innovative design that allows you to pinpoint your favorite penile pleasure zone while enjoying a variety of deeply intense vibrations. The internal motor is extremely powerful and it uses a never-before-seen kind of technology too. It’s called ‘Pulse Plate Technology’ and it’s the core of what makes the Hot Octopuss PULSE SOLO LUX such an impressive pleasure product for men. Use the built-in control panel to cycle through the six distinct patterns and eight different intensity levels then squeeze the spreadable wings on the casing to control the tightness with every stroke. It’s really that simple.
Despite this toy’s otherwise curious design, it’s one of the most user-friendly male virbrators on the market and it’s ideal for men with erectile dysfunction and/or Peyronie’s Disease. The open-ended design allows for supreme visual stimulation and the components are extremely easy to clean. There’s also a Turbo button on the side which immediately cranks up the stimulation level with the touch of a button, plus it comes with a wrist-mounted remote control for hands-free fun with or without a partner’s involvement. The entire thing is rechargeable via USB too, and it features a travel-ready size regardless of its obvious “sex toy” design.
Vibrators don’t always have to be manually operated, and even if they are, they don’t always have to look like man-made pleasure products. The CyberSkin Twerking Butt Elite makes that statement truer than ever, with a curved and weighty design, a bunch of lifelike details, and an integrated sleeve warmer to make each experience feel a tad bit more sensational. The heating element can be switched on or off too, plus this pretty little ass features two distinct insertion points designed to keep things interesting. Enhance the session by turning on the multi-speed vibrating functions or explore the other user-friendly features until you blow your load inside the easy-clean canal.
This thing has been carefully crafted to sit up on the bed just like a live partner would – angled, enthusiastic and providing the perfect view. Users can press a single button on the wired controlled to scroll through the 6 different preprogrammed vibe functions and 6 unique massage speeds. Meanwhile, this hefty honey starts twerking on your dick as soon as you command it to, and everything can be controlled through the downloadable smart phone app (the perfect feature for kinky couples and long-distance relationships). It’s even compatible with your typical VR headset (or the one included) for viewing 3D porn content and/or enjoying hands-free play.
Hail the male masturbation gods for inspiring the development of the Fun Factory Manta. It’s basically just a handheld self-pleasure device for men, but upon closer inspection you’ll see it’s much more than that. It features a unique and ergonomic design that allows for targeted stimulation of the penis or glans. In fact, this thing is ideal for all sorts of activities, although it works best as a male vibrator because of the 12 intense stimulation patterns and compact, user-friendly design. And while it requires non-stop manual power and a familiarity with one’s own body, it doesn’t require batteries thanks to the USB rechargeable motor that’s controlled by three built-in buttons on the palm-sized handle.
Position this sleek stroker at any point on your penis for pinpointed pleasure and enjoy a virtually endless array of sexy sensations. It even has a finger loop base to ensure you don’t lose your grip when things get hot and heavy. Furthermore, the silky-smooth silicone covering is only improved by the delicate texture ridges along its U-shaped tip. Plus, the entire contraption is ideal for in-shower stimulation because it’s completely submersible in water, easier to clean than most male vibrators, and fully rechargeable via USB. It also opens up to a total circumference of 6.75 inches (which is enormous) and offers 120 solid minutes of uninterrupted play.
It’s a great time to start experimenting with sex toys because even the underdogs are making a name for themselves. The Maia Piper male vibrating stroker is solid evidence of the fact that no-name manufacturers can produce decent dick treats if they put their minds to it. This thing has hundreds of different sensation combinations to play with but that’s not all. It also vibrates, warms to the average body temperature and allows the user to manually control the level of suction inside its chamber. Basically, this “unpopular” pleasure product provides a wide range of experiences and accommodates a wide range of different penises.
Th Maia Piper male vibrator offers 2 inches of diametric expansion and 5 total inches of insertable length. The canal is lined with a super-soft, skin-like silicone and everything gets controlled via the built-on button panel on the front. Use them to scroll through the 3 different vibe speeds, 12 distinct patterns and 3 sultry temperatures. It doesn’t have the kind of power that some high-end products do and it requires a relatively long charge time, but that doesn’t take away from the convenient waterproof design and USB rechargeable battery in my book.
Facing the massive sex toy industry alone can be extremely intimidating. Not only are there thousands of different options available but many of them look, feel and act the same to the untrained eye. Things can get pretty confusing when the picture is stared at as a whole. Instead, narrow it down by focusing your attention primarily on male vibrators. Not seeing much of a change in the number of options? That’s because vibrating sex toys for men have exploded in popularity over the last few decades. The only way to find what you’re looking for is to study like it’s 8th grade Sex Ed. School’s in session, bitches.
A male vibrator is a sex toy that’s specially made to stimulate the penis and/or glans through direct contact or pressure using vibrations, sonic waves or something similar. Enjoyed primarily by men who want to increase their orgasmic intensity during masturbation or intercourse, vibrators for men can sometimes be used by women as well. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and some are made for anal stimulation/prostate massage instead. Most importantly, however, these exclusively designed sex toys often feature anatomical ergonomics for better handling and even come with built-in pleasure functions when they’re associated with top-name brands.
I’d like to say that all men use vibrators but that’s not true. It’s too bad though, because some of these things come recommended by sexual health experts. Instead of being owned by anyone with a penis, these devices are most commonly enjoyed by guys who want to accomplish one or more of the following things:
Obviously, more people use vibrating sex toys for men than we think. As a result, the market has started to flood with options and most people don’t know where to shop (let alone what to look for). It doesn’t take a pain in the ass to get a little pleasure on your penis though. It’s all about knowing the right information about yourself and the devices you’re considering.
Countless sex toy manufacturers make a name for themselves by engaging in unscrupulous business practices. Meanwhile, their marketing teams work day and night to con money from consumers’ pockets, many times without the consumer ever laying eyes on the actual device. Online shopping is popular and brand familiarity can be extremely helpful, but those things shouldn’t be the only things you look for no matter where you buy the toy from. So, before picking your latest and greatest male vibrator, take a moment to observe the execution of the following 5 things on each device:
TIP: Measure the size of your penis before shopping, making sure to get numbers for an erection and a flaccid member.
TIP: Make sure your sex toy materials are compatible with the lubricants you plan to use because some ingredients can eat away at the device’s covering.
TIP: Save money by choosing devices with features that are most practical for your intentions.
TIP: Read some reviews that were written or filmed by real consumers to determine the quality of the vibrator’s design.
TIP: Be sure to purchase a compatible device and/or necessary equipment if you choose one that’s made for couple’s play.
When a pleasure product possesses all these things, only then can it be officially considered a worthy contender for your money. Otherwise, it’s just another one of the many shady devices floating around the market. Use this knowledge to narrow down your search and prevent disappointment because, like it or not, some male vibrators get sold without a satisfaction guarantee.
Now that you’re more aware of the ploys used by modern-day manufacturers, it’s time to begin considering certain facts about yourself as a consumer. This part of Sex Ed requires complete honesty and open communication with yourself and/or your partner(s), so don’t be bullshitting because your sex life may be on the line. Before laying any money on the table, think about these last five things:
Shopping for a new male vibrator is a right and a responsibility. It requires lot of attention to detail and it requires you to keep your wits about you. Know the most common features of the toys you’re looking for. Find out what things you should be hunting down, and then pinpoint the perfect option by knowing yourself better than the manufacturers do. At the end of the day, it’s not about brand loyalty, budget restrictions, social taboos or relationship problems. This lesson has been all about your God-given right to beat your own meat like it owes you money, even if that means using a man-made vibrator to get it done.
Q: How am I supposed to clean this kind of thing to ensure it stays hygienic?
A: Your sex toy cleaning habits depend on several factors: the type of device you’re using, the instructions that came with it in the box, the materials it’s made out of, etc. Always read the user’s manual before cleaning anything. However, know that the average device requires little more than a warm water bath with a non-abrasive, hypoallergenic, antibacterial soap. In some cases, a savvy manufacturer may urge consumers to finish their toy with a gentle renewal powder to prevent damages and the accumulation of debris. Be sure to make room in your budget for appropriate cleaning supplies and maintenance materials like that.
Q: Is there any specific way to store a male vibrator?
A: These toys are extremely delicate to the elements, even if they’re made out of high-end materials, industry-standard manufacturing techniques and leading technologies. Especially for devices with integrated electronic components, storage can be somewhat tricky. To make things a little easier, plan to keep your new you in a clean, dry space within your home – the nightstand, your dresser drawer, etc. Make sure the stowing zone is away from direct sunlight and extreme hot or cold temperatures as well. For best results, keep your playthings out of the reach of children and pets while utilizing any storage containers provided by the manufacturer.
Q: Do I need any special skills or equipment to use my new sex toy?
A: Luckily, today’s sex toy maker is keen on creating user-friendly products. You don’t need any special skills to use a male vibrator as intended, as long as it’s not featuring complex, high-tech components. If so, those devices will most likely require a separate purchase of compatible equipment like virtual reality goggles, porn library memberships, internet/mobile data service plans, gentle lubricants, sex toy cleaning supplies and batteries (usually for wireless remote controlling). Carefully read the instructions to determine which pieces of gear you need to buy before popping open the box.
Q: What type of lube should I use with a male vibrator?
A: Your lube selection should be based primarily upon your preference, but a few other factors should be considered as well. Make sure the lubricant you choose is compatible with both your skin type and the materials covering the toy. Remember, silicone-based lubrication is never okay for silicone-based toys. Oil is compatible with silicone and lasts a very long time but it stains fabrics and is hard to wash off, so use water-based lubes for best results. This is especially important if you or your partner have any allergies to certain ingredients or materials.
Q: I heard vibrations can desensitize my body. Is that true?
A: Yes, after a while, the delivery of constant vibrations can temporarily desensitize a person’s erogenous zone. This is especially dangerous for men with preexisting erection or performance problems. As always, please use your male vibrators responsibly by refraining from continual masturbation and by using plenty of high-end lubricant.
