The art of male masturbation

Most guys would agree that masturbation is some of the most fun that you can have by yourself. But while our female counterparts have more frank discussions about the toys that they use, it’s unlikely that you’ll find guys recommending toys to each other.

That’s why we’re here.

In this article we’ll look at the types of male sex toys and recommend our best selling products in each category so that you can enhance your sex life; alone and with partners.


Male Masturbators


Masturbators, sometimes called sleeves, fit over your penis and are designed to provide far more stimulation than you could with just your hand. Usually they have a plastic outer case and a latex inner sleeve which is generally removable.

The great thing about masturbators is that they are incredibly easy to use. You’d use it the exact same way that you would have sex or masturbate and the textured inside does the work for you.

Depending on the inner sleeve you can find masturbators that are more gentle but you can also pick ones that are extremely stimulating and will have you climaxing in no time. We have a huge range of masturbators including brands like Autoblow, Fleshlight and Penthouse.

The Autoblow was revolutionary when it first came to market, a toy for men that could simulate the pleasure of receiving a blowjob. So, when the Autoblow 2 was released we knew that it would be popular with our customers.

Rather than having a textured sleeve like most masturbators, it has three rows of beads that automatically move up and down your shaft without any effort from you. The device plugs directly into your mains electricity and a small but powerful motor powers the toy.

The Autoblow 2 is the perfect choice for those lazy nights when you just want to sit back and enjoy yourself.

Next up we have the Fleshlight range. Fleshlight is by far the most popular male sex toy in the industry and for good reason, they create body safe products that are optimized for pleasure. Not only that, but they also work with the top porn stars to create anatomically accurate molds!

The most popular Fleshlight is the Stamina Training Unit (STU) which was originally designed to help men to overcome premature ejaculation by making them accustom to stimulation. However, guys quickly realized that the STU was one of the most stimulating toys on the market and an awful lot of fun to play with!

Cock Rings


Cock rings seem to have been around for centuries in some form or another and it’s easy to see why. They fit tightly around the base of your penis and this restricts blood flow, helping you to keep a harder and therefore bigger erection for a longer period of time.

Some men find that this makes them more sensitive, causing a more enjoyable climax. However, their primary purpose is to help you to maintain a bigger erection so that you can please your partner.

Rings come in lots of different shapes and sizes, but the most common type is a silicon or gel ring that is flexible and not overly tight. Lords Of The Ring &  Cock Armour make some of our best-selling rings, which come in both a standard and a large size.

When you use the ring you should ensure that you’re already erect and then carefully stretch the ring over your penis and pull it down to the base. If it feels uncomfortable then make sure to take it off and try a larger size.


Prostate Toys


Your prostate is a relatively small gland the can most easily be accessed through your anus and is a fundamental part of the pleasure that us guys feel during sex. Stimulating your prostate directly can lead to mind-blowing orgasms that are far stronger than what you can experience through just stimulating your penis.

If you’ve never tried any prostate play, you owe it to yourself to try it at least once.

Prostate toys come in two main forms; plugs and massagers. Massagers are extremely similar to a female vibrator and they vibrate against your prostate and can be incredibly pleasurable. Plugs on the other hand are much more subtle and they sit inside your anus, providing pressure against your prostate rather than vibration.

We exclusively stock a line of butt plugs by Cheeky, all of which are made out of a comfortable and safe silicone. They are available in a large range of shapes and sizes so that you can find the perfect fit for you.

If you’re looking for a prostate massager then Anal Fantasy have a ‘vibrating reach around’ toy that is reasonably priced and will give you hours of fun. Rather than just having a straight vibrating plug, the shaft is indented and curved to directly hit your prostate.

This is going to provide the most stimulation and result in intense climaxes that might just redefine your definition of ‘a quiet night’ by yourself! You’ll also noticed the the toy has a texture area at the bottom of the shaft, this is designed to stimulate just behind your testicles where there are hundreds of nerve endings.




Sex toys can be a lot of fun, especially when they are used safely and with the right precautions. Whenever you are using toys we would recommend that you apply water-based lubricant to prevent any friction and irritation.

It’s important that the lube is water-based because any oil can react with silicone and cause damage to your toys.

Applying a few drops of lubricant to your massager or prostate toys will make insertion more comfortable and can even make using them that much more enjoyable.

Finally, as with anything you need to ensure that you’re cleaning your toys thoroughly. Lubricant and bodily fluids can be difficult to wash off and therefore we would suggest purchasing our Secret Lovers Toy Cleaner which is specifically designed to clean sex toys.

This anti-microbial cleaner is super simple to use and will keep your toys clean and safe to use.
