Sex toys for men have always been somewhat of a taboo topic. However, as sexual discussions have progressed, the concept of male sexual “aids” have gone mainstream.

Probably the newest and most innovate stroker toy around, the Manta is very popular amongst those in the know. “It’s unlike any other sex toy on the market,” says Finn. “The soft, velvety silicone head is contoured to flex around the penis, and is designed with ridges along the inside of the wings that holds lubricant in place for added sensation.” Richardson is a big fan of the Manta as well: “It’s perfect if you’re looking to intensify a BJ or masturbation routine.”

Get a good idea as to the quality of the texture by skimming over a couple customer reviews.

We spoke with a lot of sex shop owners and buyers to put this list together, and they kept mentioning this new brand called b-Vibe, which specializes in anal plugs. “These are pretty cool because they’re weighted on the inside with one or two steel balls,” says Duran. “You won’t see it, but when it’s in the body you feel those weights a little. It’s a great way to see if you’re into anal stimulation.” They’re available in four different sizes, so you can choose whatever feels most comfortable.
