o see the prices of the toys click the links after their description, they are not included in the articles since they are subject to change.
"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 turn to sex toys for men. They come in a range of shapes and styles, from realistic vaginas and anuses to completely neutral non-gender specific options.
Just remember to use a lot of water-based lube since masturbators don't self-lubricate just yet!
We can't stress using water-based lube enough; Any other type of lube will degrade the male toys mentioned in this list.
Another thing worth noting is that any male masturbator that isn't made of silicone will degrade over time.
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.
Also, if you were looking for hands-free "automatic" male masturbators, we suggest you read our hands-free sex toys for men list.
That being said, here's our top 9 list, not necessarily from worst to best, because everyone's needs and budgets are different:
- 1 Cheap Stroker Models
- 2 Mid-Range Stroker Models
- 3 High-End Stroker Models
Cheap Stroker Models
The Tenga egg is a neat little Japanese invention.
It is a throwaway, portable, 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're in a dorm, at your parents or with nosy roommates, there isn't 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 penis, 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.
It is definitively better than simply using your boring old hands.
These are sent by the ton to soldiers overseas and boyfriends away from home and we sure understand why!
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 it with a bit of soap, rinse out with warm water and set to dry.
You will only need to supply your own lube after the first use.
Otherwise, if you need something you can carry with you or a temporary aid, this is definitively a good choice.
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 double as great couples toys as well since the open-ended design allows your significant other to fellate you while in use.
At the price of being a bit less stealthy, the transparent Quickshot Vantage gives a great view to your partner as well.
We suggest using less lube than you would normally use while using it with a partner since it'll mix up with saliva and 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 significant other.
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 the traditional Fleshlights when used alone, 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, this might not work for you.
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, dry, powder it up with cornstarch and you're done.
But if your funds are low, you're in a relationship, or you need a stealthy & easy to clean option, the Quickshot is definitely the best option for you.
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.
Just be sure to use a good lube, slip in and enjoy the ride.
To clean it, rinse all out and use anti-bacterial toy cleaner all over, let stand for 3 to 5 minutes, rinse again and put aside to dry before storing.
We only wish there was a realistic, functional toy reminiscent of Fleshlight's quality out there for our dear Magic Wands.

Mid-Range Stroker Models
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.
The Tenda 3d models all have their very own distinct looks.
These 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 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 the male toys from accumulating moisture and mold. Something that can be a problem with Fleshlights and other closed models.
The material is extremely soft and stretchy and, since there's no outer shell, you control the pressure with your 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.
Every texture is interesting, but if you want the most intense model, go with the spiral.
How to clean
For cleaning simply flip the texture back out and rinse thoroughly, 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 on a clean towel. After about 5 minutes you can rinse again and let your 3d air dry on its stand.
If you bought the zen or the pile, make sure 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 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 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 there's not really a best one, 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.
It's better to make sure you dry up every crack and corner in the material before hanging to dry if you want to avoid mold.
A clean towel will do the trick nicely 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 a brilliant feature that 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 pass.
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 masturbators as Fleshlights.
They offer one of the most realistic experience in the industry with a variety of looks and textures.
Suction can be adjusted from intense to none with a simple twist of the bottom cap.
They 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.
If you like 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 confusing to a lot of us. To help you find the best Fleshlight for you, here's a quick rundown of the models.:
The model that started it all. It is 10 inches long, so perfect for the bigger guys. You can choose between a vagina, an anus, and a mouth.
This is a portable version of the Classic. It's 8 inches long and thinner. Perfect if space is an issue or if you don't need all the 10 inches of the regular models.
Almost completely transparent so you can see all the action, these are perfect for the 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. It can easily be confused with a thermos or a Lens cover. The orifice also looks nothing like a human being 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. If you want to keep your sessions short of if you need some training, these will do very nicely. Not for the especially girthy men.
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 their own set of textures and mouth, anus and vagina replicas.
The freaks collection is a unique take on male toys.
Inspired by sci-fi and horror, you have the choice to choose between aliens, zombies and other classic monsters.
This model's sleeve comes outfitted with 3 sockets on each side of the toy to insert either the included vibrators or any other bullet vibrator.
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
Build your own version of the classic by choosing your own shell, orifice, and texture. If you're looking for the most intense texture they have, Destroya is 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 semen.
Avoid using any type of soap because this can cut the lifetime of your male toys greatly. 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 Stroker Models
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 would with any other traditional sex toys for men.
With this toy, you simply insert the head of the 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 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.
This means that if you want to share the toy, you can do so in a way that will put no one at risk.
Couples will also love that not only one person can use it at a time.
Partners can straddle it and use the vibrations that are carried to its silicone top while it is being penetrated.
You can use the Cobra upside down to get the top silicone flap to reverberate intensely on your frenulum.
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 or rub unscented soap all over, rinse again and you're done!
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're 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 one at the end for head stimulation. This way, there's not an inch of your manhood that feels left out.
The only real Caveat is that this is the most expensive masturbator on this list.
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
And just like the other Flip Holes, it is a breeze to clean for a non-silicone toy.
You can simply slide off the battery before cleaning your male masturbator. It's a brilliant but simple feature that will make cleaning that 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, a Cobra Libre or a Pulse III, 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 maintain materials that can even become dangerous for 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 be Realdoll comes in and steals the show.
At a similar price to the other non-body safe options, it's ultra-realistic and durable. But most importantly, it's very easy to clean and sanitize since it's entirely made of platinum grade silicone.
Another big plus is that the stroker part is 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! And if you want to fully sanitize it, just put the attachment in boiling water for a few minutes, and let it dry out completely and you're done!
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!
