Fellas, let’s talk about sex toys. So often a topic reserved solely for women who need something to help them get over the disappointment or an unsatisfactory experience with a handsome beau, sex toys can indeed be used by men. After all, it’s healthy and human to find out what you do and don’t like sexually.
The most common sex toy associated with guys is the humble fleshlight. As close a substitute as you can get to the real thing, fleshlights come in various sizes and styles – think front and back of a woman – with each offering their own specialised sensations to help you achieve a feeling, unlike the one you experience when you become acquainted with Mrs Palm and her five daughters.
Fleshlight is actually the brand name of one of the original male sex toys, founded in 1998. The name has since become synonymous with male masturbatory toys, although unofficial Fleshlight products will usually go by a different name.
As with most products on the market, not just those of sexual persuasions, you tend to get what you pay for. The less you spend, then the cheaper quality materials you can expect to ‘surround’ yourself with, whereas the more you can afford to part with, the less likely you’ll feel you need a woman in your life ever again.
We’ve scoured the adult websites to find the crème de la crème of fleshlights, and the ones that will bring you the sweetest satisfaction.
Fleshlight Girls Dillion Harper Crush Texture
Instead of just watching your favourite stars on the computer, why not get as close to being with them as possible. That's the intention behind Fleshlight Girls, a company that produces pocketable companions moulded on your favourite porn stars. This particular model imitates industry veteran Dillion Harper and features "5 unique chambers of exicting nubs, nodules, ridges and grooves."
Easy to clean and with its own discreet storage case, this silky smooth fleshlight will find pride of place in your bedside table.
ElectraStim Bi-Polar Electrosex Jack Socket Stroker
What better way to increase the sensation of an imitation vagina than by having it vibrate too. But , there's more to the ElectraSlim than your standard vibrating pleasure palace. The electrical currents delivered penetrate the tissue of your member to an enhanced experience that's indescribable. It boasts a number of intensities and vibration patterns to change up the experience. Beware, ElectraStim says to not use it on your nipples or anywhere across the chest, and all warnings are there for a reason.
Fleshlight Girls Riley Reid Utopia Texture
Another chance to take a porn star to pound town here with an imitation of everyone's favourite Riley Reid. Explore the everything Riley has to offer with a generous helping of lubrication and, as the name suggests, you'll reach a feeling of utopia that will have you coming back for more and more. The inner SuperSkin is temperature responsive, so it's recommended to warm it up with some water first, and with that out the way, you'll be feeling the heat in no time.
Master-Bot Super Powered Stroker
A fleshlight for the lazy man now and the Master-Bot Super Powered Stroker. Simply slide in (with lube, of course) turn it on and lie back and relax as you're taken care of. Strategically placed "ticklers" know just the spots to stimulate and once you're done (which, before training will no doubt be quickly) clean up is a cinch.
Satisfyer Men One
Offering up one of the best-looking fleshlights is US sex merchants Satisfyer. The Men One looks a little inconspicuous with its blue and black colour scheme, but flip it over and the goods will be revealed. The Men One is more than just a simple silicon sleeve, inside you'll find a pump that can adjust the tightness level to your specific desire, while a pressure regulator can create varying levels of suction to imitate both oral and vaginal sex.
Svakom Alex Neo
With this being the 21st Century, naturally, there was always going to be a series of sex toys that have a companion app. The Svakom Alex Neo is one of those, and if you so wish, grants you the opportunity to put your partner in control of your pleasure. Alex – a woman – can speak to you too and set up scenario specific stimulation. What's more, you can connect to anyone anywhere in the world, amazing for long-distance relationships, and you can sync it with porn videos for an out-of-this-world experience.
Heading into the world of premium, more expensive sex toys is the Kiiroo Onyx+. Regarded as one of the best strokers out there, the Onyx+ baosts 10 contracting rings to provide stimulation that you would have likely never felt before. As with the Svakom above, the Onyx+ can connect to the FeelConnect app to be controlled by either yourself or someone else, and it can connect to interactive videos to make it feel as if you're actually there.
Mystim Opus E
German providers of sexual satisfaction Mystim said its Opus E stroker was the first of its kind when it launched in 2019. Available in 3 versions: vagina, anal and a doughnut shape, the Opus E combines quality materials, a solid and ergonomic build and electronic stimulation that has to be felt to be believed.
This vagina model gets bonus features over the other two such as various materials with varying textures to elicit an explosion of sensations.
Fleshlight Go Stamina Training Unit
Hailing from the maker of the original Fleshlight, this GO Stamina Training Unit gives you all the tool you need to train your tool to last longer in bed. Designed to replicate an authentic sheet shuffle, the Go STU will (with time) allow you to increase your stamina, and best of all, its compact enough to take wherever you go. Business trip? Take it to the hotel. Holiday? Use it when the other half goes for a dip in the pool. The possibilities are endless.
Shower Stroker Travel Mate
Incredibly affordable. Incredibly compact and incredibly easy to use, and no need for lubrication. Ideal for the travelling man (or the guy who wants to be discrete about his endeavours) the water-enabled companion provides a greater stimulation than using just your hand and just needs a quick spritz of a dedicated sex-toy cleaner before its ready for its next outing. For less than $10, you can't go wrong.
Blow Job Master Thrusting Male Masturbator
Almost as good as full blown sex, oral stimulation brings with it its own unique feelings. Experience them for yourself with this realistic oral sex toy with six thrusting motions for you to try out. Whether you like it hard, fast and intense or slow and sensual, you'll be thoroughly relieved after a few minutes with this baby.
Thrust Pro Elite Lexi
If money is no object or if your better half won't give in to your wildest desires, you can invest in the Thrust Pro Lexi, a medium-sized sex doll that weighs a hefty 21kg. Ok, so it's not a fleshlight in the strictest sense, but as a masturbator with all holes up for grabs , and without being asked to do some housework in return, we're not complaining. For sensations unlike those you can experience in the real world, Lexi comes with a vibrator that you can put inside her for double the fun.
For a fleshlight that looks a little more inconspicuous, check out this Apollo Reversible. The mini foam-roller like design will work on any sensitive zones once you're fully inside. What's great about the Apollo is you effectively get two products in one, as you can reverse the texture on the inside, changing from smooth to textured and bumpy, to illicit various levels of sexual satisfaction. It does have a closed end, however, which can occasionally lead to the toy creating a vacuum, causing you to become stuck, but lube her up well enough and you'll be sweet.
Oxballs Fingers Textured Glove
No, this isn't a Freddy Krueger sexual parody, but instead, a way to jazz up your personal time without parting ways with Mrs Palm. Oxballs' textured glove provides each finger with its own unique textured pattern that you can insert anywhere or wrap around any body part you wish. Hell, it can even be used to spice up your sex life with your partner too. It's perhaps the most versatile toy out there.
