Get more pleasure out of masturbating
Male Mastrubators have come a long way in the last few years. They're becoming more and more advanced and, we're happy to say, look a lot more stylish. The perfect example: the Hot Octopuss Pulse. But even the humble penis pump is now armed with digital dials and masturbators and pleasure sleeves have had an upgrade with their fancy real feel textures, suction strengths and vibration settings.
Why do blokes use masturbators?
The simple answer: because they feel good. Ok, ok, we know your hand is probably still your go-to tool of choice when you want to knock a swift one out, but for those blokes that want to mix things up a bit (and we know there are a lot of you) they are using masturbators and sleeves because these sex toys can offer sensations that your hand can't.
Getting a simple tube style masturbator like the Loving Joy Pearl Palm, is a great first time sex toy. Not only is it inexpensive, costing under a tenner, but it's also small and compact enough to store away from prying eyes. Even if you did leave it out, it's less than anatomical appearance means its purpose won't be instantly obvious.
Mastrubators are not just for guys to use alone…
Interestingly, while couples have been sharing vibrating sex toys for years, there still seems to be a stigma surrounding couples exploring mutual pleasure using a masturbation sleeve. Again, smaller, less realistic male sex toys like the TENGA Eggs range, have started to bridge that gap. Their stylish design means introducing one of these into the bedroom may be a much more comfortable experience than bringing a realistic vagina to your partner and asking him or her to use that instead.
Whether this is the first time you've ever heard of male masturbator sleeves or if you've held off getting one because you're unsure how to use one, there's no reason why a masturbation sleeve can't become part of your shared or solo sexual repertoire. Read on for a run down on how to get the most out of your male masturbator sex toy.
How to use a male masturbator
While it may be tempting to just shove it in for a bit of wham, bam, thank you ma'am, there are a few extra tricks and some simple steps to try that can maximise your male masturbator pleasure…
STEP 1: Apply a water-based lubricant to your sex toy, as well as to your penis. This will limit the amount of uncomfortable friction between you and the masturbator, heighten your sensitivity and improve any textured feeling within the sex sleeve.
STEP 2: Most masturbators have a circular entrance. It may look small to start with, but they'll expand and stretch to fit. Slide the head of your penis in and then ease into it. You may want to only start by stimulating the sensitive tip of the penis, before plunging deeper. Varying how much of your penis is stimulated at any one time can help keep your solo sex session varied, interesting and help you last longer rather than diving straight into a pumping rhythm that will easily make you come.
STEP 3: For masturbators or sleeves that are made from a soft material, it's possible to vary the pressure. Grip it tightly for a more intense feel, or softly to ease up and bring you back from the brink of climax. Advanced masturbators, like Fleshlights, have a screw cap on the end of the case. This allows you to adjust how strong the suction feels on the draw back. Read more about how to use Fleshlights here.
STEP 4: Move the sleeve back and forth until you reach climax. If it's your first time using a male masturbator or stroker then you may find you climax quite quickly, but over time you'll find that your sexual stamina increases, which is another perk of giving a male sex toy a go.
Keeping it clean
The fifth and final important step when using a male masturbator is to make sure you give it a through clean afterwards. So, once you've come down from your orgasmic cloud, make sure you wash it. By keeping it clean your male sex toy will last longer and work better. To keep clean up time to a minimum read our guide on cleaning sex toys.
