3 Sex Toys Every Man Should Own
Sex toys are wonderful things in far more ways than may immediately spring to mind.
The sheer variety available is especially noteworthy, and with the quantity of categories of toy and the level of variation within each of these categories, there really is something for everyone.
That said, can it ever be too much of a good thing?
That's where this post comes in - to help you navigate through the weird and wonderful world of sex toys to the essential few every man should own.
They're not the be all and end all of the sex toy world, but with these to hand you'll have a great starting point from which to branch out into whatever toys appeal to you specifically the most.
1. Bullet Vibrator
No sex toy collection, be the owner male, female or other; super kinky or as vanilla as they come, is complete without a bullet vibrator.
Easily one of the most versatile toys, they can be used to great effect with a partner or solo by anyone and make a great unintimidating first toy.
Though they aren't intended for internal use, which rules them out for penetrative anal play, bullet vibes are great for stimulating any sensitive area of the body, such as nipples, perineum, frenulum, or balls.
Particular stand-outs in the category include the Lovehoney Dream Bullet as a fairly low price, 'first toy level' bullet, and the Desire Luxury Bullet for those who can splash out a little more on a super high quality toy.
2. Cock Ring
While the cock ring lacks the versatility of the bullet vibrator, it more than makes up for it by being super easy to use and very, very good at the one job it does.
Typically, cock rings consist of a circular band that's worn around the base of the penis shaft (and sometimes the testicles), in order to help boost erection size and strength.
Some cock rings feature vibrator mounted on a ring, which is worn on the shaft of the penis, and designed to provide stimulation during intercourse.
This is a toy that works just as well with gay and straight sex, and, due to its simplicity, has something of a 'fire and forget' characteristic that makes it appealing to couples who aren't normally too toy-heavy.
A great model to check out is the Lovehoney Bionic Bullet Cock Ring, for both quality and cost.
3. Handheld Masturbator
It's rare for a sex toy brand to be a household name, but Fleshlight seems to have become just that. What is less well known, however, is that the Fleshlight range is just one of a huge number out there in the world of handheld male masturbators.
Consisting of a synthetic vagina (in the same loose sense in which a dildo is a synthetic penis) and a cylindrical length of textured material, the handheld masturbator is a step up in male solo pleasure that few go back from.
Designed to be easy to use, easy to clean and easy to store, these toys are a great little indulgence for when you feel like spoiling yourself.
They typically come in 'realistic' and 'stroker' varieties, with the realistic types being modelled (indeed, often cast on) real vaginas, and strokers simply sleeves of textured rubber or silicone.
There you have it, the top three types of toy that should form the foundation of any man's collection.
With these, you have enough variation in your toy drawer to tackle just about any situation in the bedroom, and a really comfortable point from which to start looking at expanding and exploring the huge world of sex toys and accessories outside of the scope of this list, all without breaking the bank.
