“Male masturbator”, “stroker”, “pocket pussy”, “man’s other best friend”, these toys go by many names but they’re essentially all the same thing. But we’re not here for name debating, we’re here for “bating”, so let’s get to it!
Whether you’re a loner, far from your significant other or you just can’t stand the ruggedness of your own manly hands, you know you can always count on the ever-expanding world of sex toys for men.
Masturbators, more specifically, come in a wide range of shapes and styles, from realistic vaginas and anuses to completely non-gender specific options.
Just remember to use a lot of water-based lube since male masturbators don’t self-lubricate just yet!
And we can’t stress this enough; Any other type of lube will degrade any of the male toys mentioned in this list.
Also, if you fail to dry your stroker properly after clean up, it can start accumulating mold, shortening the life of your male masturbator considerably.
Another thing worth noting is that any stroker that isn’t made of silicone will degrade over time and might need a replacement in the long run. Still, if you follow the lube and clean-up guidelines found in this article, you should be able to extend the life of your toys greatly.
For those of you looking for hands-free “automatic” male masturbators, we suggest you read our hands-free sex toys for men list instead.
With the disclaimers out of the way, here’s our top 10 list of the best male masturbators, not necessarily from worst to best, because everyone’s needs and budgets are different:
- 1 Cheap Male Masturbators
- 2 Mid-Range Male Masturbators
- 3 High-End Male Masturbators
Cheap Male Masturbators
The Tenga egg is a neat little Japanese invention.
It is a throwaway, portable, and cheap male masturbator.
It comes in a wide range of textures, which are illustrated as patterns on the outside of the packaging.
A big plus is that they look nothing like most sex toys for men, so if you live in a dorm, at your parents’ house or with nosy roommates, there isn’t too much to worry about.
How it works is simple, you crack the egg open, put the included lube inside of the stroker, put it on your manhood, stretch it back and forth and Voilà!
But how do they feel?
The material is extremely soft, the textures are different from egg to egg and the suction caused by the stretching of the material makes the experience feel surprisingly realistic. All in all, It sure beats beating off the old fashion way without feeling too alien either.
These are sent by the ton to soldiers overseas and boyfriends away from home and we sure understand why!
Though they’re meant to be single-use, depending on how rough you are with your Egg, you should get about 2 to 10 uses out of each one of them.
Just clean them with a bit of soap, rinse out with warm water and set to dry. Just remember that you will need to supply your own lube after the first use.
Otherwise, if you need something you can carry with you or a temporary aid, these are definitively a good option.
Quickshot Boost & Vantage by Fleshlight
Even though the Quickshots are the cheapest Fleshlights available, they’re by no means disappointing.
They’re inconspicuous, cheap and feels almost as great as any other Fleshlight.
They also double as great couples toys as well since the open-ended design allows for your significant other to fellate you while in use. At the price of being a bit less stealthy, the transparent Quickshot Vantage gives a pretty good view to your partner as well.
We suggest using less lube than you would normally use while using it during a blowjob since it’ll mix up with saliva and, through all that lubrification, you might lose the great sensation of the Quickshot’s texture. A good flavored lube will also go a long way in making the experience more pleasant for your SO.
Otherwise, if your partner is well hydrated, nothing stops you from going all spit!
Of course, the open-ended design means you won’t have as much head stimulation and suction as with the traditional Fleshlights.
Wich is a small trade-off for portability and the ease of use it offers instead.
Another downside is that the Quickshot can be quite noisy in use so, if the walls are thin where you reside, this might not be the optimal choice.
How to clean
The Quickshot is also easier to clean and maintain than any other Fleshlight thanks to its open-ended design. Just rinse the toy thouroughly, leave it to dry, then powder it up with cornstarch and you’re done.
But if your funds are low, in a relationship, or you simply need a stealthy & easy to clean option, the Quickshot is definitely worth considering.
Vibra Cup Head Stimulator
If you already own a Magic Wand ( or any other alternative ), this is a great, cheap way to acquire an extremely powerful masturbator.
Plus, just like the Quickshot Vantage, the transparent nature of the toy acts as a kinky window for any partner that would like to watch.
As always, just make sure to use a good lube, as the cheap material found on this attachment can get quite sticky.
We only wish there was a realistic, functional toy reminiscent of Fleshlight’s quality out there for our dear Magic Wands.
How to clean
Rinse it out and use mild/neutral soap or a toy cleaner ( in this case, leave it on for 5 minutes ), rinse again, and put aside to dry before storing.
For everything else you need to know about the magic wand’s versatility, alternatives, and how you can add features to it, read our Magic Wand guide.
Mid-Range Male Masturbators
Tenga again!? This time with reusable models that look like beautiful pieces of art? If the Japanese can make toilets sophisticated, they sure can make “taming the bishop” classy as well.
These toys are so well designed that they could easily be left in plain sight without arousing any suspicion.
But don’t be fooled, that pretty exterior is what actually goes on the inside of the toy while in use. You see, the display is actually the drying stand, this way the textured inside is always flipped out when drying.
This prevents these male toys from accumulating moisture and mold. Something that can be a problem with Fleshlights and other standard closed models.
The material is extremely soft and stretchy and, since there’s no outer shell, you control the pressure of the toy with your own hand. So if the usual hard shell toy isn’t tight enough for you this can be pretty useful.
Suction is also great once you get the hang of it.
While every texture is interesting, if you want the most intense model, just go with the spiral and thank us later.
How to clean
For cleaning simply flip the texture back out and rinse thoroughly. Really make sure to get all the nook and crannies.
Once this is done, spray anti-bacterial toy cleaner all over the male masturbator and leave it for 5 minutes on a clean towel. Mild/neutral soap will work as well, just don’t leave it on like you normally would with a toy cleaner. No matter which cleanser you used, rinse again and let your 3D air dry on its stand.
If you bought the zen or the pile, make sure that all the gaps and holes are fully dry before moving on. Once dry, you can finally put the lid back on and move on with your day.
So if you feel that providing your own pressure might be a bit too involved for you, keep on reading.
Tenga Flip Orb
Here comes a brand new release from the beloved Japanese masturbation giant Tenga!
The Flip Orbs are essentially a cheaper, yet innovative alternative to the Flip Holes & Flip Zeros.
While there is no hard storage case included this time around, it does come with an extra unique feature to soften the blow… Orbs!
Harder than the rest of the innards of the sleeve, the Flip Orb’s Orbs are meant to add an extra layer of sensations while in use. So if you ever felt like all masturbators feel the same or you just generally have a hard time actually feeling the textures of your toys ( as a circumcised man, I feel your pain ) you will love this addition.
While in use, the Flip Orbs essentially feel like a massage chair for your dick!
It’s really the best way I can describe it as this unique sensation is a bit hard to explain.
Otherwise, just like its big brothers, the stroker itself provides plenty of suction and comes with their signature pressure plates, which will allow you to make the toy feel tighter as you go.
I’m also a big fan of the new curvy ergonomic design as it feels better in hand than the rest of the Tenga Flip toys.
How to choose the right Tenga Flip Orb
The Tenga Flip Orbs come in 2 intensities, each featuring two different textures and colors, for a grand total of 4 models.
The Standard Flip Orbs should satisfy most folks while the “Black” versions sport a firmer texture for those who need some extra stimulation.
A little word of warning for the Black models, because of the firmer material, they tend to be snugger than the standard models. So if you find most masturbators to be a bit tight, you’re probably better off going with the standard models.
The two available colors/textures are the Orange Crash & the Blue Rush. Other than the difference in color, the Orange Crash features a “nubby” texture while the Blue Rush is ribbed for your pleasure!
How to clean
Like all the other Flip models, the clamshell design makes it super easy to clean and dry, which should greatly increase the longevity of your toys.
Just open the shell, rinse, apply some anti-bacterial toy cleaner or neutral or mild soap. Once clean, rinse again, wipe off the excess moisture, and set to dry.
There’s no middle clip like on the other flips, so you can’t use that as a drying rack. But the new cap & hinge allows you to simply lay the toy open facing up or on its side for drying, so this shouldn’t be much of a problem!
Once completely dry, close your Flip Orb and put the cap on to avoid the entrance of the toy from collecting dust and voilà!
And if they ever make an EV model, like with the Flip Zero, but turn the orbs into vibrators somehow, I will absolutely lose my mind!
Tenga Flip Hole
The Tenga Flip Hole comes with a hard shell, but you can still apply your own pressure thanks to its 3 pressure points along its frame. Doing so also kicks up the suction into full gear.
Textures on this male masturbator are way more intense than the Tenga Eggs and 3D models and, depending on which pressure point you press, the experience can be customized to your liking.
It comes with a sample of each of their 3 realistic lubes. This way, if you feel like restocking from them, you will know exactly which one did it best for you.
How to choose the right Tenga Flip Hole
Now, the Tenga Flip Hole comes in 4 different models, so how does one choose?
In general, people tend to like the Black model the most because of its intense texture but if you prefer suction over texture you will probably prefer the Red.
The Original and the Silver are more balanced models but won’t reach the same extremes as the black and the red models. So it all comes down to preference.
UPDATE: There is also now a newer model called the Zero that has a smaller and sleeker design.
It is considered to be an overall improvement over the older models. It has a texture akin to the black and a suction closer to the red, making it a more intense, balanced model.
To top it all off it does feel more solid and airtight than the older models that now feel a bit flimsy compared to the zero.
How to clean
The Flip hole is fairly easy to clean. Simply remove the clip, open it like a book and rinse thoroughly with warm water. Since the textures are extremely detailed, make sure to get all the nooks and crannies.
Once done, spray anti-bacterial toy cleaner all over the inside of the toy and let stand for about 5 minutes then rinse once more. Alternatively, you can also use a mild/neutral soap followed by a rinse.
It’s better to make sure you dry up every crack and corner in the sleeve before hanging to dry if you want to avoid mold. A clean towel will do the trick and will save a few trees if you’re a chronic user.
Finally, let it hang upside down on the clip like on the picture below and once fully dry you can finally close it and store it.
This brilliant feature will help to prevent mold from forming, which is a common issue with most Fleshlights.
So unless you absolutely need vibrations or a realistic-looking toy to get off, these male toys are pretty hard to beat.
Fleshlight / Fleshjack
Fleshlight is far from being the first brand of male toys on the market, but without them, sex toys for men would’ve never have become as mainstream as they are today.
Hell, today most people still refer to all stroker sleeves as Fleshlights.
It’s also your best choice if you’re looking for an affordable & realistic male masturbator thanks to their variety of looks and textures to pick from.
Suction can also be adjusted from intense to none-existent with a simple twist of the bottom cap.
Fleshlights also come with a variety of attachments, accessories, and other upgrades.
From the hole warmers to the suction cups and other mounts, you’ll never see a male masturbator as versatile as this one.
Plus, if you have the funds, most classic fleshlights will fit in the KEON‘s shell. And considering that it is, in my opinion, the best automatic male masturbator ever made, this definitely is a cause for celebration!
If you prefer men, Fleshjack is essentially the same company.
The main difference is that their line of toys are molded directly on male porn stars instead of women and there isn’t a vagina in sight!
How to choose the right Fleshlight
Fleshlights come in many styles and models so it can be a bit confusing when you’re trying to make a decision. To help you find the best Fleshlight for you, here’s a quick rundown of the models.:
The model that started it all. It’s 10 inches long, so perfect for the bigger guys out there. You can choose between the classic vagina, anus, and mouth. None of these are molded on actual porn stars, so if replicas weird you out, you’re welcome.
This is a portable version of the Classic. It’s 8 inches long and a bit thinner. A perfect option if space is an issue or if you don’t need all the 10 inches the classic models have to offer.
Almost completely transparent so you can see all the action, these are perfect for voyeurs and couples alike. They can be bought in either Classic or Go size and there’s a Turbo option as well.
Smaller than the Go, with an even stealthier shell, the Flight can easily be confused with a thermos or a lens cover. The orifice also looks nothing like a human one and the material offers a bit more resistance than the regular models. It’s a great option for traveling or staying under the radar of sneaky roommates.
Stamina Training Unit
Meant to help you last longer, these are the tightest and most intense Fleshlights available. So if you want to keep your sessions short or if you need some training of your own, these will do very nicely. Though if you’re especially girthy, I’d avoid the STU altogether.
Supposed to simulate oral sex, it comes 3 different points of insertion, giving you different sensations depending on where you tackle it from.
Molded directly on porn stars, these are the most realistic looking fleshlights you can get. Each star has its own set of textures along with mouth, anus and vagina replicas. They also offer darker skin tones than what can be found on their classic models.
The freaks collection is a unique take on male toys. Inspired by sci-fi and horror, you get to choose between aliens, zombies and other classic monsters. So if you like getting your freak on in the freakiest way as possible, go with the freaks!
This model’s sleeve comes outfitted with 3 sockets on each side to insert either the included vibrators or any other bullet vibrator of your choice.
We can’t suggest using the Tango bullet by we-vibe on this toy enough. Just that one bullet will stimulate you more than the 3 bullets included together!
Build your own
Or you could build your own version of the classic by choosing your own shell, orifice, and texture. If you’re looking for the most intense texture, Destroya is definitely the most popular.
How to clean
Clean up remains a bit more involved than the other brands out there.
To avoid any problems, remove the 2 caps from the shell and run warm water through the orifice until it is completely clear of lube and other fluids.
Avoid using any type of soap because this can cut the lifetime of these male toys greatly. Just use 70% Isopropyl alcohol if you want a more thorough clean up.
Now let the toy completely air dry with the two caps still completely off. Once this is done, apply the refresh powder or good old cornstarch ( it’s essentially the same thing ) over the toy for it to regain its original soft texture and you’re done!
Just be sure to follow the cleaning instructions carefully to extend its lifetime and avoid the toy from becoming moldy.
High-End Male Masturbators
Cobra Libre 2 by Fun Factory
The Cobra Libre 2 is more of a Penile vibrator than a traditional masturbator.
What this means is that you don’t get to stroke with it as you normally would with any other traditional sex toys for men.
With this toy, you simply insert the head of your penis in and let the intense vibrations do their work.
So if you were looking for male toys that can do all the hard work for you, this is a perfect choice.
If you’re feeling really lazy, you can even lay the Cobra Libre on your stomach while laying down, removing the need to hold it completely.
Fun Factory’s attempt at making a non-anal sex toy for men is completely waterproof, rechargeable and features 11 amazing deep vibration patterns. The Cobra comes in Black and Red and is the most high-end a masturbator has ever looked.
The orifice of the toy is also made of medical-grade, ultra-soft silicone.
Thanks to this, this masturbator is not only completely healthy to use, but it won’t ever accumulate mold and it can be completely sanitized if needed. Meaning that if you want to share your toy, you can do so in a way that will put no one at risk.
Silicone is also way more durable than any other masturbator material out there. So this toy could very well last you a lifetime.
Couples will also love that not only one person can use it at a time. If you lay on your back, your partner will be able to join by climbing on top of you. Giving you a great view while you enjoy the intense waves of vibrations together.
How to clean your Cobra Libre
The Cobra Libre is also very easy to clean. Just rinse it off, spray some anti-bacterial toy cleaner and let it stand for 3 to 5 minutes, rinse again and you’re done! Or you could also use a neutral soap and rinse thoroughly as well.
If you wish to fully sanitize it, simply make a 10% bleach water solution, put it all over the silicone and let it act a bit. After a few minutes, carefully rinse all the solution away and you should be ready to go.
So if you’re in need of a male masturbator that will do all the work for you, and you don’t have an aversion to vibration, the Cobra Libre 2 is absolutely fit for the job.
Flip Zero EV by Tenga
“It’s a Cobra Libre!”, ” It’s a Flip hole!” Nope, it’s the Tenga Flip Hole EV!
First of all, in terms of features, the EV has the most we’ve ever seen in a single male masturbator.
It has 5 different intense vibrations, it’s rechargeable and you can adjust the tightness of the toy with pressure plates. And since it is a closed design, you do get a great amount of suction as well.
We also love that there’s a vibrator at the entrance of the orifice as well as at the other end for head stimulation. This way, there’s not an inch of your manhood that’s going to feel left out.
The only real caveat is that it is more expensive than your standard masturbator.
It is also probably one of the best male masturbators ever made, so it is well worth the money if you can afford it!
How to clean
Just like the other Flip Holes, it is a breeze to clean for a non-silicone toy.
Simply slide off the battery before cleaning. It’s a brilliant feature that will make cleaning much easier by not having to work around electrical components.
Just keep in mind that the charging base isn’t waterproof, so be extra careful when cleaning that part.
For more information on clean up, refer back to the earlier flip hole entry.
So if you can’t decide between a Tenga Flip Hole or a Cobra Libre, this might very well be the best choice for you.
Insert Facilitator by Realdoll
If you’re looking for a more organic experience without spending thousands of dollars on a life-size sex doll, “torsos”, as we call them in the industry, are definitely the way to go.
Torsos can be anything between a full-size sex doll and a stroker.
And while there are a lot of options to pick from in that department, most options come in porous, hard to clean materials that can even become dangerous to your health over time. Meaning that your investment will quickly become a sticky, crumbling, and full of mold, mess.
This is where the insert facilitator by Realdoll comes in and steals the show.
At a similar price to the other non-body safe options out there, it’s the most realistic male masturbator you will find. It’s also incredibly durable as well, so you won’t have to replace it any time soon. But most importantly, it’s very easy to clean and sanitize since it’s entirely made of platinum grade silicone.
The only downside is that this uncanny masturbator can only be used in one position. So if you prefer doggy style or more than one orifice, you might want to check out Realdoll’s more expensive torsos!
How to clean
The best part is that the sleeve is entirely removable, so you don’t have to clean the whole thing after every session.
Just take out the attachment and do what you have to do! If you want to fully sanitize it, just put the attachment in boiling water for a few minutes, let it dry out completely, and you’re done!
I’d even argue that it’s the most realistic male masturbator you can get. And being more durable and realistic than most options at this price, it’s hard to find reasons to buy anything else!
