Dildos, butt plugs, and vibrators might be amazing (and well, they are!), but male masturbators are all the rage too! If you’re looking for the perfect male sex toy to bring you to a new kind of wonderful climax, a male masturbator is the one for you!


Perfectly imitating a vagina, male masturbators (also known as pocket pussies!) allow you to pleasure yourself in a way that feels like you’re truly having sex, supporting your wild imagination and bringing you to enhanced heights of pleasure that your hand never could!


In this article, we’re going to take you through a male masturbator 101 - we’re going to be telling you what a male masturbator is, the types of male masturbators out there, how to use a male masturbator, and what positions you can use one in, as well as tell you about the best male masturbator out there (hint, it’s an Alora Hannah Pocket Pussy!).



What Is A Male Masturbator?


There’s a wide range of male masturbators out there, some that are a little more basic and some that are more complex. However, the basis of a male masturbator is that it is a male sex toy that contains a soft, textured material sleeve that is either modeled on a real vagina, mouth, or butt, or replicates them.


This sleeve alone can be the entire sex toy, but in the case of most male masturbators, the sleeve sits within a case that imitates a flashlight, hence the popular, most well-known brand name that these sex toys are associated with “fleshlight”.


Types of Male Masturbators


With so many different male masturbators out there, it can seem a little overwhelming when you’re trying to find a new masturbator or you’re thinking about buying your first one!

So, we thought we’d introduce you to the different types of masturbators on the market so you can choose one that suits your needs perfectly.


Vaginal, Anal, and Oral Masturbator/Pocket Pussy


The most commonly purchased male masturbators are the typical “pocket pussy” or “fleshlight” type of toy. These toys are the most discreet, portable, and simple to use.


These types of toys aren’t just limited to simulating vaginal sex though, as most people would assume - anal and oral male masturbators also exist and have grown in popularity in recent years. There are even 3 in 1 male masturbators if you want more options in one toy.



Hands-free Masturbators


For those that prefer or need a hands-free experience, hands-free masturbators, also known as strokers, exist! These toys, much like pocket pussies, simulate a vagina, butt, or mouth, but they move by themselves.

These male strokers are typically a little less discreet than the typical pocket pussy due to the fact they’re chunkier. They’re also not completely waterproof due to the electronic component within them.

However, those who can’t use their hands or prefer to have a toy set its own speed, pressure, and rotation may benefit from this type of masturbator.


Blowjob Masturbators


Although we touched slightly on oral masturbators above in the pocket pussy section, blowjob masturbators are a specific type of masturbator, especially the ones that have electrical components.


These toys look as if they’re mini kitchen appliances, so they’re more discreet than the soft, realistic-looking mouth fleshlights. These kinds of toys take care of the whole experience for you - you put your penis in the toy and the toy begins to work, simulating the feeling of getting a blowjob. Some of these toys even heat up and expel breath-like wind to really make it feel like you’re receiving a blowjob!



Sex Dolls


Sex dolls are probably the most extravagant type of toy, and the general consensus of whether sex dolls are morally correct has been questioned over the last few years frequently!


Sex dolls are incredibly human-like, full-body or half-body dolls made from materials such as silicone and rubber. They are obviously the least discreet type of sex toy in relation to the ones we’ve previously mentioned. They’re also much more expensive than other types of male sex toys on the market.



How To Use A Male Masturbator


Now you know about the different types of male masturbators out there, it’s completely up to you which one best suits your needs - pick what feels right for you!


However, we’re going to focus on the typical, most commonly used type of male masturbators out there - pocket pussies/fleshlights. In our opinion, these really are the best type of male masturbators out there since they’re easy to use, discreet, easy to clean, and they’re typically molded off real orifices.


So, here’s how to use this type of male sex toy…


#1 Read The Instructions and Put Your Mastubator Together


Although you might be the kind of person that throws away the instructions and attempts to put things together themselves, when you’re using a male masturbator, it’s essential that you read and follow the instructions.


You need to know if your sex toy is waterproof, how to put it together, how to wash it, and how you can safely use it, the answers to all of which will be within the instructions that come with your toy. So, read and follow them.


If your toy hasn’t come ready, you need to assemble it - don’t panic, these types of toys are pretty easy to put together!


#2 Grab The Water Based Lube


When you use male masturbators, it’s important to use lube. Lube will not only enhance the experience for you, but it will also ensure that you don’t get hurt or damage your penis during your fun.


However, make sure you use a water-based lube to ensure that the lube doesn’t degrade the material of the sex toy. Do not just oil-based or silicone-based lubes.


Once you have your water-based lube handy, apply it to your penis and the inside of the toy to help your entrance!


#3 Go In Slowly


Much like if you were having sex with someone, go in slowly. Most male masturbators don’t look as if they could fit your penis, but that’s because they’re designed to look like real orifices. So, just ease in - you will fit, just don’t go in too intensely!


If you prefer, you can put the tip into the toy and keep moving it in and out at this point - this will increase stimulation and give you an even more realistic feeling that you are actually having sex.



#4 Enjoy It and Vary Your Speed


Once you’re fully in the sleeve, it’s time for the fun! The first few times you use your male masturbator, you might notice that you finish faster than expected, but don’t worry about that, just have fun and see what kind of speed and motions you like. Over time, using this toy will improve your stamina.


Have fun with the speed - you don’t just have to go from slow to fast, you can vary the speed during the entire experience. Who knows, you might really enjoy it slowly!



#5 Once Your Done, Clean It Properly


Once you’ve climaxed, it’s essential that you clean the toy properly. If you leave the toy without cleaning it, not only will that be gross when you come back to use it again, but it increases the likelihood of nasty bacteria congregating and growing on the toy.


So, just take 5 minutes to clean it!


Cleaning male masturbators is super simple. All you need to do is remove the sleeve, wash it with mild, fragrance-free, antibacterial soap and warm water, ensuring you remove any fluids on it. Then, clean the case that the sleeve fits into, to ensure none of your fluids went into this section of the toy. Click here for more tips on cleaning sex toys.


Both parts should then be left to air dry on their own, and once they are both fully dry, the toy can be put back together for next time.


Make sure you store your toy somewhere that’s dry, bacteria-free, and dust-free!
