Male Sex Toys - A Guide
Crudely speaking, male sex toys could be divided into 3 groups - things you masturbate into, things you wear on your penis and things you put up your bum. From a product point of view these could be classified as cock rings, masturbators and anal toys. All of these can be found at Peachy Keen under the category Male Sex Toys. Let's take more of an in-depth look at them:
Cock rings can be divided into the category of vibrating and non-vibrating.
A non-vibrating cock ring is worn over the penis. (You can buy some that go over the penis and scrotum but not currently from Peachy Keen) The science behind cock rings is that they slightly restrict blood from flowing away from your erection, so they can make you harder and last longer.
A vibrating cock ring has the same medical benefits as above but has a vibrating part that works to stimulate your partner as you have sex - the clitoris if you’re having sex with a female and the perineum if you’re having sex with a male. Some cock rings such as the Fifty Shades of Grey ‘Feel it Baby’ vibrating cock ring, have a removable vibrator.
Pros of cock rings: It’s a good ‘gateway’ male sex toy – good for beginners and for introducing yourself and a partner to sex toys as vibrating cock rings create pleasure for both of you.
Cons of cock rings: It’s kind of a one size fits all deal and we know that not all penises are the same girth. If you get a silicone cock ring you’re less likely to have this issue as it will stretch to accommodate. You also have free returns with Peachy Keen if your cock ring doesn’t fit well.
Male masturbators are worn on or around the penis and used for either solo masturbation or you can have a partner lend a helping hand. The sale and use of male masturbators has sky rocketed over the past few years with the prominence of companies such as Fleshlight and TENGA and advances in technology being able to create high quality masturbators. Male masturbators can be divided into sleeves, one use masturbators and reusable masturbators.
A sleeve, like the TENGA 3D range, is worn on the penis and then you hold the sleeve with your penis in and masturbate as normal. It just makes things a bit more interesting by creating a different sensation than just using your hand.
A one use masturbator is a lot like using a sleeve (The sleeve above, not your coat sleeve, ew.) but it isn’t open ended, i.e it only has one hole. The Tenga Eggs are one use masturbators. The idea is that after you’ve ejaculated, you can just take it off and fling the whole thing in the bin – aiding the clean-up operation somewhat.
A reusable masturbator works exactly the same as the one-use but they have been designed to be easily opened and cleaned so that you can use them again and again. This makes them a more expensive investment up front but more economically sound over the years.
Pros of male masturbators: It’s nice to mix up sensations and not always use your hand. Good for use in foreplay.
Cons of male masturbators: You might have to kiss a few frogs before you find the one just right for you, but you’ll have fun in the meantime. Cleaning up the reusable ones means cleaning off your mess but hey you would have to do that anyway!
Anal toys are any sex toy which can be inserted into the anus. They can be used during intercourse or masturbation. The general science behind the pleasure is that the prostate, or the P-Spot or the male G-Spot is a small gland that sits underneath the bladder and helps with the production of sperm. It feels great when stimulated and can lead to more intense orgasms than penis stimulation alone. The prostate can be stimulated by stimulation of the area around 3 inches into the anus on the wall closest to the stomach. Anal toys can be divided into butt plugs and prostate massagers although the two do cross over.
Butt Plugs provide a more general stimulation of the prostate by putting pressure on the whole area. They help the muscles of the anus to contract which can cause great orgasms. Vibrating butt plugs such as the Fifty Shades of Grey ‘Delicious Fullness’ Butt Plug, create vibrations against and around the prostate that can heighten orgasms. Women use butt plugs too, just not for prostate stimulation, being that they don’t have prostates…..
Prostate massagers provide a more targeted stimulation as they are curved, contoured and angled so that they focus all their pinpointed massage on and around the prostate. A vibrating prostate massager works the same as a vibrating butt plug – the vibrations stimulate the area against and around the prostate to intensify orgasms. There would be no real point to a woman using a prostate massager being as they don’t have them….
