There’s no denying that transition can be full of emotional and physical challenges. But we want to make sure that you can enjoy and love your body, no matter where you’re at with your transition.
The good news is that there’s never been a better time for Trans Men in terms of solutions, prosthetics, and tools to make your life easier.
A few disclaimers before we get to the good stuff.
Needless to say, but we’ll say it anyway… TRIGGER WARNING folks!
We’re talking about sex, genitalia, as well as top and bottom solutions in the typical Tabooless fashion ( hint: we talk like there are no taboos ). But don’t worry, we’re not monsters either, and we only bite when asked to! <3
We also understand that FTM/FTX transition is very unique to the individual, so we’re trying to cover as broad of a range as possible.
For example, some entries are going to assume that you haven’t gone through top or bottom SRS yet or ever, depending on where you stand on the subject.
But no matter where you’re at, SRS, T or not, this guide will most likely come handy to you in some way.
So let’s get to it!
That being said, here’s our top 10 list of essential FTM packers, toys and tools, not necessarily from worst to best, because everyone’s needs and budgets are different.
- 1 Shotpocket by FTM Pitstop
- 2 Underworks Binders & KT Tape
- 3 Rodeoh Harnesses
- 4 Spareparts Hardwear Strap-ons
- 5 Packers & Stand to Pee (STP) devices
- 6 Vixskin Dildos by Vixen Creations
- 7 New York Toy Collective Pack-N-Play Dildos
- 8 Double Dildos
- 9 Pop by Semenette
- 10 RealCock 2
Shotpocket by FTM Pitstop
If you’re on testosterone and have noticed some bottom growth, it could be time to get your very first masturbator!
And if this isn’t a cause for celebration, I don’t know what is.
The Shotpocket is a silicone sleeve that is small enough for most average to above average FTM bits and provides plenty of suction and texture to the user.
While it might not be the tightest fit for some, the flexible sleeve can be squished to better accommodate almost anyone. So it shouldn’t be a problem, especially when the suction starts to kick in.
Like with all masturbators, it’s mandatory that you use a good water-based lube.
It’s also really important that you avoid all silicone lubes because they tend to eat away at toys that contain any trace of silicone in their materials.
With that being said, clean up is still very simple with the Shotpocket.
You can use any standard toy cleaner or an unscented soap along with a good rinse. Once this is done, make sure it is completely dry before storing it back into its container.
If you wish to fully sanitize your Shotpocket, you can simply boil it for 10 minutes or wash it with a 10% bleach water solution followed by a good rinse.
If you’d like a more detailed guide as to how to use it, make sure to watch this handy video review by the always amazing UppercaseChase.
Otherwise, if you’re looking for a roomier toy, the Sexy Pill was originally meant to be a cis men’s toy, but it has become very popular with trans men and could be a better option for you.
The sexy pill is just as good as the Shotpocket, but this time around it isn’t made of medical-grade silicone. This means it won’t be as durable and you won’t be able to sanitize it completely.
Of course, if anything that has to do with your nether regions gets you in a bad way, it might not be the best option for you.
Underworks Binders & KT Tape
Binding is essential to most trans men who still haven’t gone through top surgery. Yet if done wrong, it can be pretty bad for your overall health. If done wrong, it’s even possible it’ll increase the risk of complications when it is at last time to go through with the operation.
Throughout this entry, we’ll make sure to put as much focus on safety as possible. So if you follow our directives carefully, you should get through it scot-free!
While there are many options out there, the Underworks Extreme models are some of the most popular FTM binders today.
They bind extremely well compared to the competition, and these binders remain cheap for what they offer.
It also helps that Underworks is as trans-friendly as it gets and this is reflected by how well their customer service handles things.
While underworks binders might provide the most efficient binding you can get, sometimes it’s not worth sacrificing comfort for looks.
In that case, another popular choice is the GC2B binders. Their products, being specifically made for trans men, are more comfortable than the Underworks binders. But they won’t bind as tightly as their competition.
Dildo Dealer Pro Tip #1: When binding, you should push the nipple towards your chest and not down.
While it may seem more intuitive to push everything down, it can be very detrimental to healthy tissue and future top surgery.
Dildo Dealer Pro Tip #2: No matter how “top of the line” your binders are, it’s important that you don’t bind more than 8 to 12 hours at a time. Even if dysphoria is a 24/7 ordeal, the restricted breathing, bruising and other physical injuries that can follow are definitely not worth it. Especially if it puts your future top surgery and overall health at risk.
So binding by day, and wearing oversized hoodies by night is the best protocol! ( Heck, that’s how I spend my evenings, and I’m as cis as it gets. )
Dildo Dealer Pro Tip #3: It’s also very important that you wear the right size of binder for yourself, no matter what others may say, going smaller can make all the issues mentioned above exponentially worst.
Now if you’d rather do long-term binding and would like to avoid the restricted breathing that comes with binders, KT tape is definitely the way to go.
As opposed to any other type of bandaging and tapes, it is made for long-term wear and shouldn’t cause too many issues.
Wondering why Transtape isn’t our top choice for tape binding? It’s simply because “Transtape” is just rebranded Kinesiology therapeutic tape with inflated prices to go along with it. And any company trying to unfairly profit off marginalized folks can eat it! But I digress.
Original Cotton KT tape is the least irritating of the bunch and should last you up to about half a week.
Pro KT tape can last up to a full week and you can even shower and swim with it without any problems.
There’s no need to invest in KT pro Extreme tape since it is essentially made for swimmers and the more intense the adhesive, the harder it is to remove. Something that may cause more useless skin irritations than anything.
Of course, KT tape has its disadvantages and being able to bind for a long time still comes at a price.
For one, compression isn’t as intense as traditional binders.
KT tape will also most definitely cause some irritation and itchiness, especially in the beginning.
It’s also important that you don’t lay in the sun with your chest exposed with these on since the adhesive can melt into your skin and burn you in a bad way.
Dildo Dealer Pro Tip #4: Removing KT tape in a pain-free way can be tricky. But It’s much easier when you apply olive/baby/coconut oil over the tape 5 to 10 minutes before removal.
In any case, it’s usually better to wait until the corners of the tape are starting to lift before attempting any removal.
Dildo Dealer Pro Tip #5: Removal can be especially rough on the sensitive skin of the nipple as well as the peach fuzz that might surround it.
So if you want to avoid any further discomfort, placing a bit of soft fabric on the nipple before applying your tape can definitely go a long way.
If you’re curious as to how to apply your tape properly, we invite you to watch this comprehensive little video.
Any other approach might put your health and future surgery at risk. So make sure to talk to a doctor before improvising!
It’s no mystery that finding a comfortable, stable and cheap FTM harness is a difficult task. Especially when most traditional harnesses are made with cis women in mind.
Well, I bet you’ll be happy to learn that Rodeoh makes brief-style strap-ons that are essentially cheap alternatives to the great Spareparts Tomboi Harness.
They also make an amazing packing/strap-on underwear hybrid named the Truhk, for guys who like a bit more versatility.
Each model comes outfitted with a stretchy adjustable O-ring, so you won’t have to carry multiple rings to accommodate all of your “prosthetics”.
They are also all compatible with “Strapless” toys thanks to an opening aligned with the O-Ring. Rodeoh also offers a model called the duo that is specifically made for this purpose.
It’s still worth noting that the Rodeoh harnesses aren’t as stable as the brief-style harnesses from SpareParts and definitely not as stable as most traditional jockstrap or G-string style harnesses. But if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, it doesn’t get much better than this.
And we truly believe that the Truhk pack & play underwear should be an essential item for almost any self-respecting Trans Men.
Spareparts Hardwear Strap-ons
These futuristic harnesses for futuristic people are also the most comfortable and durable strap-ons you can buy today.
All models are outfitted with durable Elastic O-rings that will accommodate a large variety of dildos and they will all work with double or “strapless” dildos as well.
The material you will find on the SpareParts harnesses is also extremely comfortable, breathable and the material dries almost as fast as you wet it.
One of our favorite features is that you will find pockets on top and under the O-Ring to stash away some bullet vibes.
They are easy to trigger through the material, this way you don’t have to dig in there every time you want to change speed. So if you fancy a bit of vibration during play, you will love those handy little pockets.
The Joque is their most stable and popular model. It’s a jockstrap style harness that is very stable, so perfect for vigorous play.
The brief-style Tomboi and the Theo harnesses are a bit less stable but often considered more convenient since you can simply slip them on like normal underwear without having to deal with straps or anything like that.
It’s also pretty easy to just hit the town wearing them like regular underwear, always ready for action.
The Tomboi also comes with an extra 3rd pocket on the side for condoms, extra bullet batteries or the phone numbers you might gather during your nights out. You sly dog you!
So whether you go with the very stable Joque or their convenient underwear style harnesses, you’ll be sure to go home with one of the best strap-ons you can get today.
Packers & Stand to Pee (STP) devices
Packers and FTM STP ( stand to pee ) devices are some of the most important prosthetics for trans men.
But before we get started, here’s a little advice for STPs:
Make sure you get some practice at home under your belt before going out in the world. These prosthetics take a little time to get used too, and some practice in the shower will save you plenty of embarrassment in public situations.
Dicks are tricky even for the cis, so be patient and you’ll be pissing all over the world in no time!
So get ready my friends since there’s a lot to unpack here (wink, wink).
The classic packy ( also known as Mr. Limpy ) is as cheap as it gets.
Mr. Limpy comes in 3 different colors and sizes and it is also surprisingly realistically shaped for the price.
All of these factors make this FTM Packer a classic and favorite amongst trans men, especially for those who are just starting out with packing.
The only real downside is that it isn’t made of silicone, so it isn’t the most durable packer you can get. It’s especially a problem if you want to use a Packer Strap to secure it since these have a tendency to rip the Packy to shreds.
They’re offered in 2 sizes and, and like their pack and play dildos, they come in a ton of different colors ( realistic or abstract ). The only difference between the two is that the Pierre is Uncut, so it perfect for that “natural” look.
Stand To Pee
The Pstyle is not cis-looking at all since it wasn’t designed with trans men in mind.
Still, it is extremely cheap and perfect if you don’t feel like packing and carrying an STP at the same time.
Even though it’s not realistic and not the best for dealing with bottom dysphoria, it should get you by in stalls and urinals with separators with no issue.
NYTC’s Sam is probably the best cheap FTM STP prosthetic. It’s also the only decent 3 in 1 model you can get for this price.
Made of pure silicone, it comes in multiple colors and is realistic enough to enjoy in open urinals and outside.
The Sam is also decent for packing, even if it’s a little awkward since it has a tendency to look a little boner-like in its natural position. But if you fold the shaft over the balls and wear tight briefs, it is definitely doable. It’s also much less of a problem if you use it with NYTC’s packer strap.
Of course, if you get the Sam insert, it can also be used for sex as well! Though the resulting erection might be a bit on the shorter side.
So let’s just say that the Sam is pretty hard to pass!
The Gendercat Gendermender is the best entry-level high-end packer you can get.
It comes with a ton of customization options like floating balls and body-safe prosthetic adhesives for securing your packers directly on your skin. They might not be as uncanny as the Reel Magic and Emisil packers, but they’re still very realistic none the less.
Of course, they’re also the most expensive packers around.
These movie-quality prosthetics come with or without hair, space to use silicone medical adhesive for harness-free wear, as well as floating balls.
Stand to Pee
The Emisil compact is the cheapest high-end FTM STP from Emisil.
It’s very realistic and popular even though it’s a little hard to pack comfortably with.
On the other hand, the Emisil STP second gen is a state of the art 3 in 1 packer.
You can pee and pack with them without an issue and if you’re feeling frisky, throw in an erection rod in there and you’re ready for action!
Like if that wasn’t enough, it also comes with realistic floating balls.
The Reel Magic STPs are also great for peeing and packing, but there are no erection rods this time around.
You can expect the same kind of realism that you get from their packers though. The kind of realism that can give even Emisil penis envy.
EZP by Transthetics is another great super realistic STP device made for active folks.
It packs very well in most situations too. So if you’re a sporty dude, definitely consider it.
Holders & Straps
While you can do without it, if you want to keep your packers in place without a slip, these holders can make a world of difference.
The NYTC packing & STP strap is made to fit with the Pierre, Archer and the Sam.
The double straps are also pretty handy and let you easily adjust your bulge to your liking.
If straps aren’t your style, Rodeoh and Spareparts make comfortable underwear made for securing packers that look just like any other pair of underwear.
For those who prefer to wear looser boxers, the NYTC magnetic pouch can attach to any pair you might own.
They hang very naturally and the only thing that gives them away is a little flap in the front of your elastic band that looks just like a normal boxer front tag. Of course, they come in multiple colors to better fit your style.
Jockstraps are another great alternative to holders.
Wear them alone or under your underwear and no one will spot the difference.

Vixskin Dildos by Vixen Creations
Vixen Creations is one of our favorite independent sex toy company. Innovation, quality and well-researched designs is a common thing you’ll find in most of their toys. And the Vixskin dildos are no exception.
Vixskin is the Cadillac of dual-density silicones. We’d even argue it is one of the best and most natural silicone experiences that you can have for the money.
For those who don’t know, dual-density silicone toys are made of two layers of silicone of different densities:
The inner layer is rigid, keeping your toy erect while still being bendable, and the exterior layer is made of natural squishy silicone.
There are many options to choose from.
We also love that each of their realistic dildos comes in at least 3 colors, with some models having gorgeous and colorful options as well. Pretty much every model they offer are strap-on compatible as well.
If you’re a sucker for comfort they also make the great Mustang Royale.
It is probably the most comfortable strap-on dildo ever made thanks to its cushy base shaped to stimulate the wearer during play. Wich makes the whole interaction as comfortable as is it realistic.
Of course, these dildos are for sex only and won’t work well for packing. So if you’re looking for a good 2-in-1 for hard packing, the next entry will be a better fit.
New York Toy Collective Pack-N-Play Dildos
Now here’s another indy company that has made its way into our cold, cold hearts. Being sex-positive and offering all sorts of great appendages for Trans men, it’s pretty hard not to love them.
Their Pack & Play Dildos were made mostly with Trans Men in mind.
With posable shafts that you can tuck away in your pants, hard-packing has never been easier.
Proud owners of G-Spots and Prostates also all have fallen in love with their pack and play toys for their pronounced heads known to reduce most people into puddles of their former selves.
It also helps that the articulated metal spine coupled with the squishy silicone exterior essentially turns these toys into excellent dual-density toys.
Another great selling point is that they offer a multitude of sizes and gorgeous colors. So whether you’re looking for natural skin tones or beautiful & colorful options, there’s definitely something for you.
If you couple them with NYTC’s Love Bump, it adds a big layer of realism and sensation to have them hang naturally during intercourse.
The added vibrations are a nice touch too if you’re into that, but you’re better off upgrading the included vibe with something better, like the Tango.
Of course, if you have the funds, Reel Magic’s pack and play prosthetics are pretty hard to beat as well.
It’s essentially the same concept as the NYTC pack and plays, but this time around the prosthetics are extremely realistic.
Plus, if you buy from them, you get to support an awesome independent, sex-positive, and LGBTQ-friendly company.
During PIV or anal sex, it’s only understandable that some trans men might enjoy some stimulation of their own.
Well, these toys can not only feel great but, being able to feel every push and pull on yourself, the feedback they give you during sex is pretty amazing.
And whether you prefer external or internal stimulation, there’s an option for you.
External Double Dildos
If the strap-on wearer isn’t too keen on penetration themselves or just prefers external stimulation in general, “strapless” dildos are probably the last thing they want to strap onto.
Well if you felt left out in this land of abundant strapless dils, you can put those emotions aside since, as always, we’ve got your back.
The Fuze and Mustang Royale dildos are meant to rub against the wearer’s bits as they play.
They are compatible with “strapless” / double dildo ready strap-ons like the Rodeoh, Aslan & Spareparts harnesses.
The Fuze Dildos have non-realistic as well as realistic options and they come with a socket for a bullet vibe ( perfect for the great Tango ) that aligns perfectly with the wearer’s sensitive regions.
The Mustang Royale mentioned earlier in the Vixskin entry is a more realistic option to the Fuze Dildos.
It comes in only one size and doesn’t come with a bullet hole either. But you will find that it is one of the most comfortable double external dildo you can get. And this coupled with their great dual-density material will make the experience as real is it gets for both you and your significant other.
Internal / “Strapless” Double Dildos
As you may have noticed, up to this point, every time we’ve written “Strapless” it was never without quotation marks.
That’s because we can’t stress enough that these are NOT made to be used without a strap-on.
This doesn’t mean that these toys aren’t great, quite the opposite. It only means that they’re victims of consistent false advertising.
Also, most of the models offered come with lackluster Bullet Vibes.
So we highly suggest investing in something like the powerful Tango by We-Vibe so the vibrations actually do something instead of being dampened by all that silicone.
Now that the disclaimers are out of the way, here are some of the most popular models:
All models are rather rigid, so if hard toys aren’t your thing, you might have to consider the other toys below.
The Feeldoes are non-realistic and have a shiny finish that offers almost no friction during play.
The Realdoes are a realistic-looking alternative that has a matte finish that feels soft to the touch. This matte texture will also cause a bit more drag, so be sure to use extra lube.
Both models come in 4 sizes (being the Classic, the Slim, the Stout, & the More that is extra long) and they also offer models with bullet vibes for extra stimulation. Just ditch the vibes and get something stronger if you want to feel anything!
The fun factory Share & Sharevibe are some of the most visually appealing strapless dildos we’ve ever seen.
They all come with a silky smooth matte finish, so keep some extra lube close if you want to avoid drag.
Fun Factory’s options are also less rigid than the Feeldoes & Realdoes so it’s easier to hit all sorts of different angles while going down to plow town.
One thing worth considering is that the insertable end for the wearer is much larger than most other “Strapless” bulbs.
So if the girth is a problem for the wearer, this might not be the best option.
On the other hand, the ShareVibe is less phallic than the Original, and has a pretty decent Vibe included that is both rechargeable and submersible underwater.
The placement of the bullet vibe hole also aligns with your junk perfectly for some well-deserved external stimulation.
The big caveats are that they are really not cis looking at all and the bullet vibe is much larger than standard bullet toys. So you won’t be able to fit the great rumbly Tango inside of your toy if you need an upgrade.
The Tango by Fuze has a lot in common with the Sharevibe, It has a similar shape and Bullet placement ( no bullet included ). But this time around, the internal Bulb is much smaller, so it is perfect for a wearer who isn’t all about that girth.
But most importantly, as opposed to the Sharevibe, it is compatible with regular bullets as well as the amazing Tango Vibe… which probably explains the name of this great double dildo, now that I think about it.
It’s also not too rigid and not too soft, so if one of you prefers hard and the other soft, this is the perfect compromise. And compromise is at the center of every healthy relationship!
Vixen Creation’s Nexus toys are the squishiest double dildos on this list.
You can hit all sorts of crazy positions without straining your bits and the middle of the toy acts a bit like a Sili Saddle, preventing mons and tailbones to collide in a catastrophic fashion.
The insertable end meant for the wearer is also slimmer than any other bulbs on this entry.
They come in 3 different sizes the first two being the Unrealistic Junior and Senior.
The last size is the Peacemaker which sports a realistic and large 2-inch wide dildo on the receiving end. This large realistic option also comes in Caramel, Vanilla, and Chocolate.
So if you or your significant other digs big dongs, well, you’re welcome!
Of course, not all of these are entirely cis looking, but we’ve included them anyway since we know some of you don’t mind it as much.

Pop by Semenette
Ejaculating dildos usually all share a thing in common: they come in horrible, unsafe, and porous materials.
But don’t you fret my dudes, since as always, Jim the Dildo Dealer has your back.
On the more affordable side of things, the Pop Semenette is really the cream of the crop when it comes to body-safe ejaculating dildos.
These FTM harness-compatible dildos are made of pure medical-grade silicone, so they durable and easy to sanitize. Something that is essential if you’re looking at using them with multiple partners.
One of the best features is that the inner tubing is completely separate from the toy itself, so it can easily be removed, cleaned or replaced altogether.
Something that isn’ found in most ejaculating dildos, which makes them almost impossible to clean completely.
You also don’t have to worry about finding replacements since they are easy to find on top of being pretty cheap as well.
This also means it’s a great option for couples looking to get pregnant.
This is for the best because, honestly, turkey basters are just not all that sexy!
Another advantage with the tube being separated from the material, aside from all the sanitary advantages it provides, is that you can use almost any type of liquid without risks of damaging your toy in any way.
We highly suggest using the great silicone hybrid Sliquid Silk Lube if you plan on ejaculating anywhere near or inside a vagina. Just make sure to clean your prosthetic dick thoroughly after use to make sure the silicone lube doesn’t eat at your appendage.
Otherwise, a mix of water and cornstarch is a good cheap alternative if you still want that cum look. But this method should only be used to ejaculate away from female genitalia.
Of course, if you don’t need the ejaculate to be white, you can always use a standard water-based lube.
The main caveat is that, even though they come in realistic colors ( as well as more abstract ones ), these FTM toys are not the most cis looking things in the world.
And if you’d prefer uncanny realism, the Joystick by Transthetics is probably the best in the game.
Of course, this prosthetic is much more expensive, and you’ll have to be more conservative with what you put in it since you can’t replace the tubing with this one. So it is mandatory that you don’t put any silicone-based lubes in it.
We also love that the “pump” used to produce the ejaculation is directly in the shaft itself, so when you cum, it looks like you’re just grabbing your dick as opposed to an external pump.
And the fact that it stimulates the wearer makes it useful not only during PIV sex but during masturbation as well, making it feel like this dick is really your own.
This body-safe, strap-on compatible FTM toy makes it a reality for trans men more than ever before.
CHEAPEST PLACES TO BUY
The Pop is currently sold out everywhere and it isn’t entirely clear if Semenette is still in business.
Hopefully, Fun Factory has simply merged the two companies and is about to come out with a new version of the product. I will update this page as soon as we get an update!
From the makers of the uncanny and luxurious Real Dolls comes the most realistic harness-compatible dildo ever made.
It is also the only triple-density toy that we’re aware of. And while this may sound like some useless one-upping, it actually makes a world of difference.
You see, the first two layers of silicone act like any other dual-density blend with one difference.
The second layer is not attached to the first, acting like a realistic layer of skin that’s slides up and down as you thrust.
Foreskin lovers shouldn’t get too excited though since the RealCock 2 acts more like a circumcised penis than a pristine one.
The balls also float loosely inside of the scrotum and are just a blast to play with, whether you’re into balls or not ( heterosexual man speaking here ).
While most silicone toys are made of one solid color, every single RealCock 2 is meticulously hand-painted with a third thin layer of colored silicone. This means you get to have a toy that looks real while still remaining body-safe.
Blue-ish hues will be found on every vein and the gland has a natural warm pink to it along with some other subtle color variations along the shaft.
Lastly, this is the most expensive realistic dildo you’ll find on this list.
But if you can afford it, it’s well worth it. Especially when you consider the amount of work and realism that is put into it.
Plus, these are about the same price as the smaller ReelMagik’s Pack & Play dildos without any customizations. So they’re definitely worth considering!
