Women’s sex toys have always been popular, but lately, men’s toys have infiltrated the market. From using strokers and rings, to vibrating things, more men are discovering what these toys can do. That goes for whether they want to increase their self-love or ramp up their experience with their partner, because incorporating a new toy or two can accomplish those goals.
However, if you’re still among those too timid to take the plunge, check out a few of the most popular options and see if they pique your curiosity.
In a blog post on Adam and Eve, contributor Penelope Pardee recently discussed the different components that make up a male enhancement toy. First, she illustrated how “enhancement” is used to describe a toy that either A: increases the physical length of the penis, or B: increases the length of time that a man can go for before reaching climax.
If you desire a toy that fits in the “A” category, Pardee suggests a full coverage sleeve, one that will add a few more inches, or a thickening sleeve that can add extra girth. If you’re after a toy for the “B” category, cock rings can restrict blood flow to the penis, extending the length of time before you climax. Results with cock rings vary with each person. If you find that they work for you, try a vibrating variety that can do wonders for your experience and your partner’s.
As writer Isabella Snow explained in an article for AskMen, anal toys can help stimulate thousands of nerve endings in the rectum cavity. However, the real fun happens when you involve the prostate.
Prostate toys stimulate the gland, which is otherwise known as the “male G-spot.” A butt plug will give you a “full” feeling, but a prostate toy can take your experience to the next level. Typically, these toys are shaped like a wand, with a rounded, egg-like tip. The more you use the toy, the more you can experiment with which moves feel best.
Remember, anal play does not define your sexuality. Heterosexual men can be more apprehensive to trying anal toys because of the stereotype that only gay men enjoy backdoor play. Not only is this untrue, but believing such a ridiculous concept only makes you miss out on the fun.
Also known as “pocket pussies,” or artificial vaginas, strokers are handheld toys that provide suction during use. Their design offers a realistic feel of oral or vaginal sex, and their results far exceed those that you can achieve by just using your bare hand.
According to The Frisky, this particular type of sex toy can also be used to prevent premature ejaculation. Using the toy as a stamina-training unit, or STU, some men find that they’re able to control the impulse to climax better when using a synthetic vagina for practice.
Try out one (or all!) of these toy options for yourself, and see what you’ve been missing.
