    Masturbators are some of the most diverse and enjoyable types of male sex toys out there. They help deliver enhanced feelings of stimulation and offer plenty of unique experiences as well.


    Fleshlights are currently the most popular male sex toys in the world. They offer highly pleasurable and even realistic stimulation thanks to a unique material called SuperSkin.

    The exterior of these sex toys is shaped like a regular flashlight. The interior, on the other hand, features all sorts of different textures that deliver unique experiences. Additionally, you can get different openings as well, including an artificial vagina, anus, and even an oral opening.

    One more thing you definitely need to know about Fleshlights is that some of them are modeled by famous pornstars such as Riley Reid, Luna Star, Abella Danger, and countless others.

    They are also excellent options for anime fans, as they have an extensive line of sleeves that are modeled from anime girls or JAV actresses.

    Automatic Masturbators

    They may be similar to the types of male sex toys we just talked about, but automatic masturbators do the hard work for you. This allows you to just insert your penis, sit back, and relax.

    There are a few types of automatic masturbators. Some are all-in-one automatic toys, while others allow you to turn standard masturbators from Fleshlight or Kiiroo into automatic ones.

    Overall, the main difference is the stroking part. If you don’t like stroking back and forth all the time, this is a great way to take the work out of it and just be left with the fun.

    If you want to turn a boring old hand-job into an out-of-this-world experience, then masturbation eggs are the easiest way to do this. Okay, they probably won’t make your eyes pop out, but many of them definitely enhance this experience.

    If nothing else, their unique interior textures and extreme ease of use will allow you to enjoy a highly unique experience. Plus, masturbation eggs are usually quite affordable, so they are at least worth a try.

    Masturbation eggs aren’t electric. You just put it on your penis, grab hold, and start rowing. Ideally, you can choose the type of texture you want to get. You can get realistic BJ mimics, strange shapes, and much more.

    There are a plethora of various other masturbation sleeves made by different manufactures. In their nature, sleeves are similar to onaholes or eggs but the design is more conventional so to say. Plus, they are often open-ended.

    The best part about this is that you can buy them with tons of different textures, patterns and designs, all with the main goal of helping you achieve the most satisfying orgasm ever.

    Penis Vibrators

    Not to get confused with the previous type, penis vibrators, in general, also come in various shapes and sizes. They can include removable sleeves, but they can also look completely different.

    Even though you can stroke some of them, the majority stimulate a penis only with a vibration. That’s why we decided to place them in a separate category.

    • Can get expensive
    • Many of them are just not enough for a majority of men to climax

    Cock Rings

    This type of male sex toy can be divided into two categories: vibrating and non-vibrating cock rings.

    Vibrating Rings

    Ring vibrators are highly versatile sex toys that can stimulate both the male and the female partner at the same time. You can also use the toy during solo play to enhance your masturbation session.

    Vibrating penis rings are easy to use, easy to clean and usually are adjustable enough to fit the majority of men. On the downside, they often lack the power and don’t provide decent stimulation for a female partner during intercourse.

    • It’s great for beginners
    • Helps to maintain longer and harder erections
    • Helps with the ED
    Not so good for:
    • Users with extremely girthy penises may find it uncomfortable
    • Often not powerful enough for power-hungry users

    Non-Vibrating Cock Rings

    The main difference between the vibrating and non-vibrating rings are, obviously, the vibrations and the fact that non-vibrating cock rings won’t stimulate your partner.

    Fortunately, they still offer the benefits of maintaining a harder and longer erection during intercourse.

    • Still helps you maintain stronger erections

    Prostate Massagers

    Like cock rings, prostate massagers also come in vibrating and non-vibrating forms. Prostate stimulation is definitely one of the most satisfying types of stimulation for men, but not everyone is ready to give it a try.

    Vibrating Prostate Massager

    Vibrating prostate massagers are types of male sex toys designed specifically to stimulate the prostate. This type of vibrator offers a feeling so satisfying that many might go as far as to say it can change their lives.

    There are many different vibrating prostate massagers. Some will even feature a rotating head to perfectly hit the P spot and help you achieve a toe-curling orgasm. Overall, anyone with a prostate should definitely experience the out-of-this-world feeling of prostate stimulation.

    Non-Vibrating Prostate Massagers

    By most part, these prostate massagers are very similar to the vibrating ones. The main difference is the vibrating part and the rotating heads in some cases.

    There aren’t too many non-vibrating prostate massagers but the most notable manufacturer to keep in mind is Aneros. Aneros managed to make non-vibrating prostate massagers that are hands-free.

    Full-Size Silicone and TPE Sex Dolls

    These are highly realistic and among the most satisfying types of sex dolls you can get. They include the full body with facial details and everything.

    If that doesn’t present a problem for you, these are actually easier to maintain, use, clean, and even transport.

    Penis Pumps

    Penis pumps help you obtain harder, stronger, and more long-lasting erections. Some penis pumps even help you achieve permanent penis growth by using them regularly for several months.

    There are three types of penis pumps you can get – air vacuum pumps, water pumps, and automatic ones.

    Air Penis Pumps

    The most common type of penis pump you’ll come across is the air vacuum one. They are simpler, cheaper, and fairly easy to use.

    This type of penis pump uses air to create a vacuum and improve the blood flow to your penis. You just need to keep in mind that air pumps aren’t the most comfortable of the three options here.

    Water penis pumps aren’t as common but they are much more comfortable than air pumps. Actually, we recommend only Bathmate water pumps. Bathmate pioneered water pumps and maintains extremely high quality of their products.

    The difference in the effectiveness between water and air pumps may be difficult to analyse, but the difference in comfort is more noticeable.

    Although, keep in mind that using water penis pumps is only possible under the shower or in the bath.

    Automatic penis pumps have the same effect as all the other types but they’re less annoying to use. This type of pump does all the pumping for you. And yes, there are battery-operated ones so you don’t have to drag long cords around the house to use them.

    Additionally, some automatic penis pumps can also vibrate, helping you relax and enjoy the process a bit more.
