The internet may have its downfalls (looking at you, trolls), but it is practically a lifesaver when it comes to online shopping. That’s particularly true when the shopping list includes items that have been known to make people feel like they’re going die from embarrassment, i.e., sex toys for men.

While we don’t think practicing good sexual wellness is anything to be embarrassed about, we wanted to make shopping for toys for men (and women and couples) less intimidating. So we created this guide to our most popular men’s sex toys, including how to use them.

Stroker

A stroker is a tunnel-shaped, skin-textured toy that slides over your erection to simulate the sensations of sex. Since it is most often used for solo play, choice comes down to personal preference.

C-ring

A C-ring is a stretchy band that fits around the base of the penis, constricting blood flow for a harder, more consistent erection and heightened sensitivity. C-rings are available in a wide range of materials—from soft silicone and leather to hard wood and metal. There are also various models, including glans rings and designs that encircle both testicles for enhanced results.

How to Use

If this is your first time, it’s best to start out with an adjustable single-strap C-ring made of a soft material, so that it can be removed easily. If you’re an experienced user and feeling adventurous, try a solid single C-ring—but keep a set of blunt-tipped scissors close at hand.

Good to Know

If you’re with a female partner, a vibrating C-ring can be used to stimulate the clitoris. If you’re with a male partner, C-rings integrate easily with anal toys.

Do not use C-rings if you bleed easily or suffer from a blood-clotting disorder. Do not wear for longer than 20 minutes.

Penis Pump

For help achieving an erection or temporarily increasing the size of your penis, consider using a penis pump. Some have a pistol-style handle for speed, while others have a pneumatic bulb handle for greater precision. Regardless, safety and comfort are key: look for a quick-release valve, a soft ring on the opening of the cylinder, and an easy-to-read pressure gauge.

How to Use

Insert your penis in the tube, then start pumping. The vacuum suction pulls more blood into vessels for a harder, possibly larger-than-normal erection.

Good to Know

Some models double as men’s sex toys with added vibration, which makes them more pleasurable to use and is great for foreplay.

Penis Extender

A penis extender is just what it sounds like: a sleeve that fits over the penis to add length and girth. It is typically made from soft, flexible material with a bit of stretch.

How to Use

Find one that fits snugly over the penis, and make sure it’s comfortable for both you and your partner during sex.

Good to Know

Some extenders have textured nubs or ridges on the shaft. Some have a removable vibrating bullet or a curved tip for G-spot stimulation. An extender with an open tip heightens sensation for the wearer.

Couples Vibrator

A couples vibrator is a major multitasker, stimulating both your partner’s clitoris and G-spot, while simultaneously boosting pleasure for you during penetrative sex.

How to Use

It’s meant to be inserted along with the penis during sex. If you’re having trouble making both fit, use a lubricant—just make sure it won’t damage the toy.

Good to Know

Look for a wireless remote or rotatable outer arm, as well as multiple vibration modes.

Anal Toys

Anal sex can be a healthy addition to any sex life, but there are plenty of other ways to explore the area besides just traditional penetration. That’s where anal toys come in. Our guide to anal toys breaks down why you may want to consider adding them to your solo or couples play.
