Masturbation is a natural part of human sexual development for both men and women. Many sex toys can bring pleasure to masturbation and even be used during intercourse, but some toys are specifically designed for the penis. Male masturbators are available in a variety of shapes and styles to suit individual tastes. These include orgasm stimulators like the TENGA Flip-Hole and orgasmic egg sleeves that slide over the shaft. There are also cock rings that restrict blood flow to delay ejaculation and other toys that make the cock dilated and more sensitive, creating sensations that mimic foreplay.
These toys are ideal for anyone who wants to explore their climactic potential, whether in solo play or during foreplay with a partner. They are also suitable for a wide range of physical abilities and disabilities, since they do not require the use of hands or fingers. The only drawbacks are that they cannot be used by people who have severe hand, wrist or arm injuries or by those who have limited shoulder mobility.
Most male masturbators are made of smooth silicone that is skin-safe, easy to clean and can be lubricated with water or body-safe oil. They are available with a variety of textures, shapes and openings, such as ribbing or raised nodules, or textured holes that mimic the mouth or anus. Some are even able to vibrate. Some models can also be used with or without a lubricant, for increased pleasure and a more realistic experience.
The tenga male orgasm stimulator is a popular option that has rows of ribbing and raised nodules that tighten around the shaft to produce explosive pressure sensations. It is reusable and can be used with or without a lubricant, although using it without will allow for longer play sessions and increased pleasure. The KIIROO Onyx+ is another reusable male masturbator that contracts and expands over the shaft, producing sensations of arousal. It interacts with a companion device for vulva-owners, the Pearl2, so that two people can have sex penetrative sex with one another from different rooms or even countries.
In recent years, health professionals, sex experts and sex educators have come to recognize that masturbation is a normal and healthy part of human sexual development for both men and woman. Some men choose to have a daily masturbation routine, others use it occasionally or infrequently and many have no desire at all. But, whatever your masturbation preference, there is no right or wrong way to do it, and your sexual activity should be enjoyable and comfortable for you. If you’re unsure of what to look for in a masturbator, talk with your doctor or sex therapist about what might work best for you. You can also ask for a referral to a specialist if you have any concerns about masturbation and sex or sexual development.
