Guide to sex toys for penises

When it comes to sexual pleasure, the spotlight often falls on toys designed for vulvas, leaving those with penises feeling overlooked. However, the world of sex toys offers a diverse range of options tailored specifically for penile stimulation, allowing individuals to explore pleasure in exciting new ways. In this guide, we'll delve into the realm of sex toys for penises, from solo play to partnered adventures.

Understanding your needs

Before diving into sex toys for penises, it's essential to understand your own desires, preferences, and boundaries. Consider factors such as the type of stimulation you enjoy, whether it's focused on the head, shaft, or perineum, as well as the level of intensity and sensation that excites you.

Choosing the right material

Choosing the right material for your sex toy is essential for your safety and pleasure. Body-safe materials, such as silicone and ABS plastic should be your top choices. These materials are non-porous, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean, ensuring a hygienic and comfortable experience. However, many penis sex toys are made from TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) or similar materials. While TPE is soft and flexible, it is also porous, meaning it can harbor bacteria and become difficult to clean thoroughly. This makes TPE toys less hygienic and can mean that your toy will have a shorter life-span.

Types of toys for penises

Masturbation sleeves/strokers: These textured sleeves are designed to mimic the sensations of penetrative sex. They come in a variety of textures, from realistic to inconspicuous, allowing you to experiment and find what feels best.

Vibrating/motorised masturbators: Adding vibrations to the mix can intensify pleasure. Vibrating masturbators often feature multiple vibration settings and patterns, providing customisable sensations to suit individual preferences. Not big on vibrations? Look into masturbators with a thrusting function for a realistic experience.

Cock rings: These rings are worn around the base of the penis or the base and testicles to restrict blood flow, resulting in a firmer and longer erection. They come in different shapes and sizes, and can also be adjustable for customised experience. Some cock rings also feature built-in vibrators or textured surfaces to provide added pleasure for both partners during intercourse. Want to switch it up? Turn the vibrating ring downwards and enjoy scrotum stimulation!

Penis pumps: These devices create a vacuum around the penis, causing blood to flow into the erectile tissue and resulting in temporary enlargement. Penis pumps can be used for both pleasure and therapeutic purposes, such as addressing erectile dysfunction.

Penis sleeves/extensions: These hollow sleeves fit over the penis to add length and girth, providing a fuller sensation during penetration. Penis sleeves can feature textured surfaces or built-in vibrators for added stimulation.

Enhancing partnered play

When it comes to partnered play, cock rings with and without vibration are a popular option. Open-ended masturbators like the Quickshot Vantage can be a great addition for oral play as they fit over the penis allowing access to the tip. For customised penetration depth, we recommend the Ohnut rings which can make penetration more comfortable for the receiving partner.

Remember, the key to finding the right toy for you is experimentation and exploration. What works for one person may not work for another, so don't be afraid to try out different toys until you find the perfect fit for your needs and preferences.
