“Masturbator”, “stroker”, “pocket pussy”, “man’s other best friend”, these toys go by many names but they’re essentially all the same thing. In any case, we’re not here for name debating, we’re here for “bating”, so let’s get to it!
So 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.
Luckily for all of us, masturbators come in a wide range of shapes and styles, from realistic vaginas and anuses to completely non-gender-specific options. So there should be something for everyone.
Just remember to use a lot of water-based lube since masturbators don’t self-lubricate just yet! And I can’t stress this enough; Any other type of lube will degrade any of the male toys mentioned on this list.
Also, if you fail to dry your stroker properly after clean up, it can start accumulating mold, shortening the life of your strokers considerably.
Another thing worth noting is that any stroker that isn’t made of silicone will degrade over time and will 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 considerably.
The Tenga egg is a neat little Japanese invention that is disposable, portable, and really affordable.
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 pleasurable. All in all, It sure beats beating off the old fashion way!
These are sent by the ton to soldiers overseas and boyfriends away from home and we sure understand why!
How to clean
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 them out with warm water, and set to dry. Just remember that you will need to supply your own lube after the first use.
The only reason I wouldn’t make this my go-to option is that if I was to use them often, they might end up being pretty expensive in the long run due to their throwaway nature.
Otherwise, if you need something you can carry with you or a temporary aid, these are definitively a good choice.
Throwaway nature means no clean up needed
Not the most environmentally friendly option
Gets expensive if you plan on using them all year long
The Quickshots are inconspicuous, cheap, and feel almost as great as any other Fleshlight.
Even though they are the cheapest Fleshlights available, they’re by no means disappointing.
Of course, the open-ended design means you won’t have as much head stimulation and suction as with the traditional Fleshlights. Which is a small trade-off for portability and the ease of use (& clean-up!) 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. But other than that, these are truly solid budget options!
They also double as great couple’s/blowjob toys!
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 also 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!
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 thoroughly, leave it to dry, then powder it up with cornstarch and you’re done.
If you want the full realistic experience, we still think the Original & Go Fleshlight models are king.
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.
Open-ended design makes clean up a breeze
Short enough so it can be used during blowjobs
Almost as good as a the Full-Size models ( Minus the suction )
Transparent model gives a great view to your partner
The Firefly line of strokers offers affordable ( glow in the dark!? ) SILICONE masturbators that don’t actually suck!
Silicone strokers are such a rare thing that I legit had to see it to believe it.
What’s even more impressive is that even though they’re made of silicone, they’re still really affordable and stretchy… just like regular TPE pocket pussies!
Don’t be mistaken, I’ve seen silicone strokers before. But they are usually extremely overpriced and/or too rigid to be actually usable. It’s a bit weird, especially considering that affordable squishy silicone dildos are so common now!
Silicone is more hygienic, durable, and easier to clean than the materials found in traditional strokers.
While your usual masturbators have to be replaced due to their porous nature ( you can never REALLY clean a porous toy ), silicone toys can have a much longer life span.
Additionally, it’s the only stroker material that can be fully sanitized which is useful if hygiene is a concern for you or if you simply wish to share your toys between partners.
Though it’s worth noting that silicone toys are only compatible with water-based lubes!
The Fireflies come in 3 models: The Firefly Yoni, Ass, & Moon.
And yes, I do realize they sound like a bizarro version of the Sailor Moon team.
Though, unlike the Sailor crew, the real difference between each model is only their external appearance. The Yoni & Ass are semi-realistic vaginas and asses respectively. The Moon, on the other hand, is a gender-neutral/non-realistic option for those of us who prefer to let our imagination do all the work.
Oh and they all come in both blue and pink! This is definitely a breath of fresh air since guy’s toys rarely come in pink and I’m 100% here for it!
“That’s all wonderful Jimmy, but how do they feel!?”
I’m glad you asked! They feel as good as any other standard masturbator really! Maybe even a touch better since the material is extremely soft & stays that way, as opposed to getting sticky quick up until the next time you powder them with corn starch.
It’s also worth considering that these are open on the other end, so there isn’t much suction here ( though you can always pinch the other end for some hand-cranked suction! ).
Speaking of hand-cranked, the shell-less design also allows you to squeeze your toy for some extra tightness and pressure! It’s as if you upgraded your own hand specifically for jerking off really!
How to clean
Thanks to the open-ended design, you could easily just finish outside the toy, run some water through it and call it a day. Otherwise, mild soap will work just fine as well if things get a little bit messier.
But the real advantage here comes from the silicone material. You see, if you need a nice deep clean/full-on sanitization, simply rinse out your toy and boil it in a pot for a few minutes and it should be like new!
Alternatively, for sanitization purposes, you can also wash the toy with a 10% bleach water solution. Just make sure you rinse it out thoroughly after ( Unless you want a tie-dye dick, of course )!
These are the best ( and only, really ) affordable silicone strokers on the market right now. Hopefully Ns Novelties is leading by example here because we definitely need more of those!
Of course, if you’re looking for a silicone stroker that is more realistic and offers more suction, Realdoll’s two options at the end of the article might be a better choice for you!
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. Heck, 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.
These toys don’t only look great, but they also feel great!
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 me 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 here.
Once this is done, wash with mild/neutral soap all over, rinse again and let your 3D air dry on its stand with the texture on the outside.
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.
There isn’t really anything bad to say about this masturbator, except that some might not like the lack of a hard shell.
So if you feel that providing your own pressure might be a bit too involved for you, keep on reading!
Being able to flip it inside out makes cleaning & drying a breeze
Here comes a brand new release from the beloved Japanese masturbation giant ( Yep, It’s Tenga again )!
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 too 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, and wash with some 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!
While the Flip Orbs are cheaper than its big brothers, I would happily pay the same price for the new features and improved ergonomic design.
If they ever make an EV model as they did with the Flip Zero, and somehow turn the orbs into vibrators, I would absolutely lose my mind!
Orbs inside add an extra layer of sensation
Pressure plates allows for control over your experience
Can be opened for easier clean up & drying
Doesn't come with storage case like other Flip toys
The Tenga Flip Holes are easy to clean, come with a hard shell, but you can still apply your own pressure thanks to their 3 pressure points.
Doing so also kicks up the suction into full gear!
Textures on these strokers 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.
Each Flip Hole comes with a sample of their 3 realistic lubes. This way, if you feel like restocking from them, you will know exactly which one you like most.
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, wash with 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.
Great sensations, ease of clean up, and a customizable experience… These are some of the reasons why the Flip Holes are some of the best-selling sex toys for men.
So unless you absolutely need vibrations or realistic-looking toys to get off, these male toys are pretty hard to beat.
Pressure plates allows for control over your experience
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 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 is molded directly on male porn stars instead of women and there isn’t a single vagina in sight, boys!
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 with 3 different points of insertion, giving you different sensations depending on where you tackle it from. The suction on these is also one of the best!
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 movie monsters. So if you like getting your freak on in the freakiest ways possible, go with the freaks! Just keep in mind that these are only available around Halloween, sadly.
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 with 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!
No matter which model you choose, you can be sure you will be left with a versatile male masturbator that feels as close to the real thing as possible.
Just be sure to follow the cleaning instructions carefully to extend its lifetime and avoid the toy from becoming moldy.
Most realistic experience you can get from a masturbator
Womanizer really shot themselves in the foot when they first chose their name. Not only did they exclude trans men from their customer base, they also stepped on the eventuality of making toys for cis men as well.
Once WOW Tech ( the guys behind one of my favorite brands: We-Vibe ), aquired the company, they were left with that limitation. So now that the time has come to bring Pleasure Air technology to men, they’ve started the Arcwave brand.
All this to say that the often copied but rarely matched Womanizer and Arcwave are one and the same!
So what is Pleasure Air Technology?
Pleasure Air tech generates air pulses that can almost feel like suction at times because of the seal it forms against erogenous zones.
It became known for quickly and efficiently yanking out orgasms out of clitorises around the world. It became extremely popular amongst cis women, especially since your only option back in the day was to rely either on vibrations or motions.
How does this former clit focused tech translate to your dick?
The Arcwave Ion is made to stimulate the frenulum, which is definitely underrated when it comes to male pleasure as it is essentially the penis’ closest equivalent to the clitoris.
You can still stroke with the Ion even with its targetted focus. But if you like a nice gradual & intense build-up, definitely try letting the Ion do its work by leaving it in place over your frenulum.
The quality of orgasms here is kind of out of this world. It can give you the type of orgasm more commonly found amongst women or with prostate stimulation; The leg shaking, full-body orgasm type.
It’s worth noting that it is so different from a traditional stroker that you might need a few sessions to get used to it.
On lower settings, it can be a tremendous edging tool as well!
Like some of the more recent Womanizer products, the Arcwave Ion also comes with Smart Silence.
It’s a feature that turns off the toy when it isn’t in contact with your body, which is great if you have nosy roommates as chucking the toy away will automatically turn it off.
Otherwise, the toy really isn’t silent when in action. So if your walls are super thin, Smart Silence won’t do much for stealth.
How to clean
Clean-up and storage are handled super well here. I’d even argue it’s the best take on this difficult aspect of male toys.
It’s extremely easy to clean as it is mostly made of silicone. Plus, the silicone part is completely removable, which makes clean up even less of a chore.
But what deserves the most praise in that department is the beautiful and inconspicuous charging dock that also acts as a drying station.
And it’s not just a simple drying rack. You see, inside the charging station there are “Drytech” silica pouches meant to suck up all the leftover moisture from your toy, preventing the formation of mold, which is a common issue with strokers.
With Womanizer’s innovative Pleasure Air technology, this is probably the most unique stroker ever made. And just like the Womanizers, it’s no gimmick. This shit just works!
While it works well with stroking motions, it’s best when left to its own device. So unless you were specifically looking for a toy to thrust with, this is an amazing penis toy that you shouldn’t miss!

Provides unique full-body orgasms

Has a bit of a learning curve due to its uniqueness
So you saw the affordable Firefly silicone strokers at the beginning of the article and just wished you could get something more realistic and premium in the same great medical-grade silicone material…
Well, wish no more, because Realdoll has your back!
The Oral and Vaginal Simulators by Realdoll are the most realistic silicone strokers you can get your hands on today!
And with silicone strokers being so damned rare, what a surprise it is to find a toy that even rivals the likes of Fleshlight & Tenga!
These are also more detailed than any other Fleshlight with realistic creases and color variations where it counts.
The Realdoll Simulators are truly uncanny strokers, so if visuals are important for you, this is it!
I probably don’t have to repeat why silicone is so great compared to the usual TPE as I’ve already covered this in the Firefly entry at the beginning of the article.
But if you’re too lazy to scroll back up, the broad lines are: It’s way more durable, non-porous so it is easier to clean and fully sanitize ( something that is impossible with traditional TPE strokers ), and it remains soft without the need of using corn starch!
On top of the amazing realism and the superior, more durable, medical-grade silicone, this toy is also great in use!
Unlike the Fireflys, the closed design delivers plenty of suction and there’s a small hole/valve that allows you to release some of the pressure as well. The shell-less design also lets you squeeze your grip on the toy for some extra tightness & pressure.
The ribbed texture is also pretty satisfying and while the silicone is a touch more rigid than your usual TPE, it’s close enough that it shouldn’t cause you any troubles!
The only real downside is that these are more expensive than most strokers are. But considering that these are hand-painted with thin layers of silicone in a factory in the US nonetheless, it is completely justified.
How to clean
Thoroughly rinse out the stroker, then run some soapy water ( mild soap works best ) inside the toy. Rinse it out once more and leave it in a position where it can completely drain out until it’s completely dry before storing.
Thanks to the silicone it is also possible to give it a deep clean & sanitize it fully. You can either substitute the mild soap in the step above with a 10% bleach water solution OR boil your stroker for a few minutes in a pot. Sanitizing will also allow you to share your toys without any risks if you’re into that kind of thing!
These are the most realistic strokers you can get your hands on today.
It’s also one of the very rare good silicone stroker options for sale. This means that they’re much more hygienic than their TPE counterparts and will last much longer as well!
Otherwise, if you want something even more realistic & larger, for 100$ more, the next entry is for you!
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, moldy mess.
This is where the insert facilitator by Realdoll comes in and steals the show… If you like women that is.
At a similar price to the other non-body safe options out there, it’s the most realistic 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, unlike most other torsos, the sleeve is entirely removable, so you don’t have to clean the whole thing after every session.
Just take out the attachment, rinse out, wash with mild soap, rinse again and leave it to dry before putting it back in. 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!
This is the most affordable way to get your hands on RealDoll’s uncanny realism.
I’d even argue that it’s the most realistic “torso” 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!
