When it comes to self-pleasure, there’s some serious tech that gives your hands a run for their money. Here are some of our favourite sex toys for boys.
You may already be ahead on this trend and have a little friend or two on your bedside table, but if you don’t know, sex toys are increasingly big business for the lads. Women have long known the benefits of a few silicone, battery-operated companions, but increasingly companies are developing toys for the big boys, complete with dedicated apps. It’s thought that 50% of men in the US have used a sex toy at some stage, and in Europe, that number is even bigger (as high as 70% in Italy) and the global sex toy market is now estimated to be over US$20 billion.
However, not all sex toys are built equal, and while some are just for your personal pleasure, others are designed to be incorporated into your sex life with your partner, ensuring plenty of sinfully good action between the sheets. Here are some of our favourites.
We’re sure you’re familiar with the Fleshlight, even if you don’t own or have never used one. The dead-simple concept was pretty ground-breaking when it was first introduced. Now, you can enjoy the same stimulation with a smaller package (the product, not you) with the Quickshot, a trimmed-down and more discrete version available translucent silicon. Perfect for travel, there are a few versions available, including some modelled on the lady gardens of famed porn stars like Riley Reid, and a turbo model for when you absolutely, positively need to blow. There are also optional extras ranging from a holder that will also warm up the toy to “mouth temperature” and a Quickshot Shower Mount for bathroom playtime.
Pulse Solo Essential Oscillating Penis Masturbator
This handy bit of award-winning self-love kit from Hot Octopus is just what the doctor ordered. Dubbed the first “guybrator“, the device will make you cum without the need of a single stroke. The powerful PulsePlate technology ensures a hands-free orgasm and the user-friendly design ensures lads of every size can use it. There is even a version with a connected app.
Je Joue Mio Luxury Rechargeable Vibrating Cock Ring
If you’re into cock rings – and we suggest you should be – then the Je Joue Mio is one of the most powerful on the market. Made for couple play, this silicone bedroom essential has five vibration speeds and functions, is stretchy enough to offer stability and comfort and is USB rechargeable (just don’t leave it on your desk at work). The device offers pleasure for both him and her and yep, it’s machine washable.
LELO F1S V2 Pleasure Console
Like a piece of Star Trek tech, the Lelo Pleasure Console has four different patterns that drive performance to the next level – there’s even an added pliable sleeve for deep pleasure and unlimited comfort. Using SenSonic technology, the device uses sonic waves and a patented Cruise Control feature to whisk you away to pleasureville – this new version even comes with a connected app (with its own games) and two times the power. You’re welcome.
TENGA Flip Zero Luxury Male Masturbator
Another fleshlight-styled device, the Tenga Flip Zero is a discreet male masturbator with incredible texture thanks to climax-inducing nubs, ripples and bumps in all the right places. There’s a strong vacuum pressure to create the highest sensation and which is controlled by manual pressure pads. Whatsmore, the device can be used when you’re standing to attention or flaccid.
