Best Sex Toys For Men
There is this misconception that sex toys are only for single, lonely women. This couldn’t be further from the truth. A recent study by sexologist Emily Morse shows that 81% of women who use a sex toy say they do so with they partners. Sex toys aren’t just for women. They are quite popular with both straight and gay men. Sex toys can be used solo or with a partner.
Gone are the days when sex toys were taboo. People are becoming more and more comfortable with sex in general and sex toys are becoming a big part of that trend towards openness to all things sex related. And men are getting in on the action too. They are using sex toys for their personal self pleasuring as well as for play with their partner in love making. Men are growing more and more accustomed to the idea of introducing sex toys into their bedroom activities whether solo or with their lovers. The more open-minded dudes can be about sexuality the better.
So what are the best sex toys for men?
It can become confusing which sex toy to use. Sometimes there’s a sense of shame in venturing into your local sex shop. That’s why online sex stores are becoming more and more popular.
Here are our Top Three Picks for Christmas for best sex toys for men:
These are no ordinary vibrators. In fact the manufacturers claim that they are NOT vibrators. They are pulsators. But what does that mean? The Stronic pulsators are for all intents and purposes vibrators to the average person. However, they provide a thrusting back and forth motion as opposed to the typical side to side vibrations of your everyday vibrator. Stronic pulsators mimic the ‘real’ thrusting of sexual penetration, doing all of the work involved in using a penetrating toy and making the pulses really rumbly. It is difficult to overstate how awesome this is.. Stronic pulsators provide excellent prostate stimulation in men so it’s is a handy tool for solo masturbation as well as playful sex with your partner.
There are three types of Stronic Pulsators – the Eins, Zwei and Drei (German words for One, Two and Three). Stronic Pulsators are made using German technology, hence their names. And just like German cars, Stronic Pulsators are durable, well designed, long lasting (no pun intended) and fun to use and look at. Stronic Pulsators are made with a silicone coating over the shaft to give a soft, smooth feel to it.
The main downside is that you’d need lots and lots of lube. We suggest putting a condom over the toy and applying loads of ID Glide water-based lubricant. You can never use too much lubricant, especially for anal play. The Drei is particularly a favorite of ours as the tip is curved for maximum stimulation of the prostate. Both straight and gay guys will love this.
Our Rating of the Sonic line of pulsators is 8.5/10.
Pros: Rechargeable, Waterproof, Textured Shaft, Silicone based, Well designed, very durable, ideal for both anal and vaginal stimulation, great for men and women, can be used solo or with a partner
Cons: Need lots of lube as the silicone can be a bit clingy in texture, takes about 16 hours to recharge when battery is completely spent.
2. COBRA LIBRE II
Our Rating of the Cobra Libre II is 8/10.
Pros: Rechargeable, Waterproof, Textured interior, Silicone based, Well designed, very durable, can be used solo or with a partner
Cons: Makes me orgasm fast sometimes. I just wish it was made deeper to encapsulate the whole penis. Make sure you don’t use it straight from the box because it needs a full charge for maximum pleasure.
3. APOLLO ALPHA STROKER
Although this says 3rd, the Apollo Alpha Stroker ties with the Cobra Libre in our book. We’ve both tried it and believe me it’s amazing. It has one advantage over the Cobra Libre – it’s got depth, about 10 inches of it. So this makes for a more pleasurable experience. It’s light weight (less than 2 pounds) and ergonomically designed. You can hold it by the small handle or your can just wrap your hands around the main body to get a good grip of things and really work on it. The downside is that the interior material is not as pliable (did I use this word in the right context?) as the Cobra Libre, so we had to use a good bit of water based lube, both in the sleeve and on ourselves.
If a Fleshlight and the Cobra Libre got together and had a baby, it would be the Apollo Alpha Stroker. It has a similar interior look and feel of a fleshlight with the versatility and vibrational pleasurability of a Cobra Libre.
Another great feature is that it has a USB charger cable. This means you could literally stick it in anywhere and get powered up. There are also a number of power speeds. So you could go real slow or speed thing up with a super vibration. Be careful though or you won’t last long, take it from me. But it give a really explosive orgasm. I kind of like this more than Jay though, he prefers the Cobra Libre, that’s why it was placed first (the things we do for love). Anyhow, you’re certain to have fun with this one. Just writing about it makes me want to pull it out of the cupboard and give it a good go. Oh well, maybe later.
Another cool feature is that you could remove the internal sleeve. Now this is useful for cleaning but it has another advantage; it could be used on it’s own for a more hands on experience. So it’s like having two toys in one. Isn’t that cool.
Now hear this one – it has a memory chip, so when you’ve put it down for a while you could just pick it back up and continue from where you left off. All the settings (speeds, etc.) remain the same unless you readjust it. And because it has 30 different vibration patterns you can have fun trying them all out. For me they were all pretty much similar but you’d know what works best for you.
Our Rating of the Sonic line of pulsators is 8/10.
Pros: Rechargeable, Waterproof, Textured interior, sleeve is made of Thermo Plastic Rubber (not sure what that is but it feels great), It’s properly designed, seems pretty durable, can be used solo or with a partner, deep design for ideal thrusting.
Cons: Makes me orgasm too fast sometimes. The 30 speed vibrations are too similar. Cleaning can be a hassle, but if you’re familiar with a Fleshlight then it should be too bad. Be sure to use an anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner before and after use.
