These 17 Vibrators for Men Will Change How You Think About Sex Toys

These 17 Vibrators for Men Will Change How You Think About Sex Toys

If you ask any man in America to define what a vibrator is, he’ll probably say something along the lines of, “Well, it’s a brightly-hued hunk of oblong plastic.” He’ll also probably note that vibrators are meant for women.

To an extent, this is true: historically, vibrators have been marketed to and used by women. Although an estimated 51% of men have copped to owning some sort of intimacy product (per a 2014 survey), they tend to be cock rings or Fleshlights—rarely, if ever, vibrators.

Part of the reason for this has to do with basic anatomical differences (and we probably don’t need to draw you a picture to explain why). But there’s also an undeniable stigma associated with guys using sex toys to get off.

“For men, any kind of [self-pleasure help] feels like a direct piercing of their masculinity,” says Alexandra Katehakis, clinical director of the Center For Healthy Sex. “The attitude is, ‘I can do this myself, and if I can’t there’s something wrong with me.'”

That attitude, however, might be changing. Sex tech companies are increasingly starting to market products like vibrators to dudes—and they’re into it.

While most sex toys for men are aimed at replicating the sensation of a penis going in and out of an orifice, the truth is that lots of guys find the sensation of vibrations on their penis (particularly around the frenulum, or the sensitive strip of skin underneath the head of the penis) incredibly pleasurable. In fact, according to one 2012 study, 44% of heterosexual men admitted that they’ve enjoyed using a vibrator at one point or another.

To that end, here are some of our favorite vibrating cock rings, sleeves, penile extenders, and other amazing toys that have been specifically marketed as vibrators for men.


Tenuto MysteryVibe

Design-wise, the Tenuto might throw you for a loop: it’s a small, black clip that attaches to the base of your penis, and it looks more like a tiny car seat than a sex toy. The device is controlled by an app, which powers six hyper-sensitive vibration motors that the company claims can help increase blood flow for stronger erections while also stimulating your pleasure centers. It can be used both solo and during intercourse.

According to Stephanie Alys, who has the (awesome) title of Chief Pleasure Officer at MysteryVibe, for too long men have been told that the pleasures of sex are largely fricative (i.e., through the friction produced by inserting a penis into a vagina). Most guys don’t even know how awesome vibrations can feel on their penises, particularly if they have trouble getting aroused in the first place.

“[For men, vibrations] provide such a distinct orgasm,” Alys says. “With Tenuto, we really target the entirety of the male sex organs, so it can be life-altering, particularly for guys who have had a harder time getting aroused.”

In 2015, the sex toy company Hot Octopuss introduced the Pulse, a vibrating sheath that was marketed as “the world’s first guybrator.”

The inventor of the Pulse, Adam Lewis, told the Daily Dot that he actually adapted the Pulse’s design from a similar product used in the medical field, which used deep oscillations to to stimulate the frenulum of the penis and help victims of spinal cord injuries achieve orgasm. Lewis said he hoped the Pulse (which is now in its third incarnation) would kibosh the lingering stigma attached to male sex toys.

“There’s a hundred different ways to achieve orgasm,” he told the Daily Dot. “Why should us guys just have one?”

ArcWave Ion

$199.99

From Men’s Health sex columnist Zachary Zane’s review: “The sensation was novel—I’ll give it that much. I like the fact that you can pretty much put your dick in there, not do anything except strengthen your grip so there’s more pressure, and you’ll orgasm. Whether on purpose or not, the toy edges you because it’s only focusing on one section of your penis. Since it edges you, you end up orgasming hard. That’s a definite pro.

“Really, the Ion is a clit sucker except for the head of your penis. If you have a sensitive head and really like to focus on just your head when masturbating, then the Ion is a solid option.”

Lovense Diamo

Thanks to a partnership between Lovense and Camsoda, you can pair this vibrating cock ring with a webcam performer’s vibrator. Here’s part of what Zach had to say about the experience: “It was fucking awesome. I won’t go so far as to say I felt like I was in the room with her, but I definitely felt more connected to her than I would to one of my OnlyFans follows. The interactive aspect definitely enhanced my masturbatory experience and made it seem like less of a solo activity. Not to mention I was really damn turned on. I’m always looking for sex toys that excite me, but that’s not what I got with the Diamo—I got a sexual experience that excited me. And that was even better.”

CalExotics Optimum Power Masturball

$39.88

The Masturball wins the “best name” award, hands down. Here’s an excerpt of Zach’s review: “After securing the Masturball around the base of my penis, I turned on the toy. It has two different motors, each controlled by buttons directly to the side of the power button.

“The first is to turn on the run-of-the-mill vibrator. The Masturball has 10 independent vibrating functions, which is all fine and dandy, but not that exciting considering every sex toy these days seems to have a superfluous number of vibration functions. That said, the vibrations felt as to be expected. But what was a game changer was the three levels of compression. That is what typical masturbator sleeves have been missing. As men, we want more than silky smooth silicone and vibrations; we want our dicks squeezed.

“The Masturball does feel like someone is in fact gripping your penis, and it feels great.”
