Skimmers Delight: The #1 Male Masturbator

If you just want me to get right to the point, the best male masturbator on the market that I've found is undoubtedly the Kiiroo Onyx 2.

With it's sleeve made from the same material that Fleshlights are made from and the genius system of contracting and expanding rings throughout the body of the toy, it's a no-brainer why it consistently delivers the most pleasurable sensations I've ever been able to get from a male masturbator. Kiiroo has made jerking off both an art and a science with the Onyx 2.

If you're reading this article, you're probably looking for a new f*ck toy to spend some quality time with.

Luckily for all of us, companies have became very creative in the department of getting a quality wank out of your system.

Not to worry my horny amigo, I've been around the block so to speak and have tried a fair variety of imitation pussy.

The R&D labs at these companies must be hilarious to sit in on, but the following male masturbators are more than worth their salt.

And for that, I salute the people who have dedicated their professional careers to sex toy innovation, it truly is an interesting time to be alive.

The truth is there's many ways to bust a nut. No one design is the be all end all and some approach the issue in a very interesting way. Some have ingenious systems for keeping the toy sanitary, while others may offer the ability to customized tightness by adjusting airflow.

Male masturbators come in a wide range of designs, there's bound to be one that satisfies your exact requirements with regards to your masturbation habits and living arrangement.

Over the years, I've tried many of the popular models of male masturbators on the market.

A lot of them really aren't special, as I speculate that some companies get rid of otherwise wasted materials created from the manufacture of other products, however a few actually want to make a name for themselves in the sex toy industry so they may dominate market share. Fleshlight for example is practically a household name.

Another company that I love is Kiiroo. They sell my favorite male masturbator, the Onyx 2

The following gif illustrates how the Onyx works.

Here's five products from teams who found out their true calling was designing and creating sex toys.

Congratulations to them of course, but I wonder if anyone in that industry is there on the advice of their high school guidance counselor.

My Top 10 Favorite Male Masturbators:

#1 - The Onyx 2 by Kiiroo: My Favorite Male Masturbator

The Kiiroo Onyx 2 is one of the toys I reach for most often and I can confidently say that it's my favorite male masturbator.

Most male masturbators rely entirely on manual operation of the toy. By this, I mean it is entirely up to you, the user, to move the toy up and down to get your jollies.

If you're looking for a little more service out of your self-service, this automatic masturbator by Kiiroo will have you jumping for joy. With 6.5 inches of insertable space and a Superskin by Fleshlight sleeve, there's a lot on offer here.

Inside of the toy are 10 rings that contract and expand much like a real vagina does during sex. You can completely customize how quickly these rings expand and retract which is pretty much all you'll have to use your hands for except holding it in place while it's in use.

It's my favorite sex toy of all time and that's saying something with the almost embarrassingly large collection I've accrued over the years. Playing with the settings makes for a fun game of seeing how long you can make yourself last before the messy finish. Motorized edging, anybody? Thankfully, cleanup is a cinch since the sleeve is entirely removable. 

The Onyx 2 is a very enjoyable toy that does 99% of the work for you. 

Plug in and play, I say. Want more info? Check out the full review.

#2 - The STU by Fleshlight: My Favorite Fleshlight Sleeve

The Fleshlight line of toys has been around for many years and how far they've gone with designing these things can seem surreal at times. For the exterior, they modeled them from real vaginas (even offering Fleshlights cast from the genitals of famous porn actresses) allegedly with the help of former Disney sculptors as per Fleshlight themselves. 

As for the interior design, the STU (Stamina Training Unit) is the one I'd recommend since it was built from the ground up to be make resisting orgasm as difficult as possible. I can only guess that a team of anywhere from probably fifteen to fifty people at Fleshlight sat themselves down and figured out what makes the average penis go bananas.

The general idea was that the STU is designed to train men to last longer in bed during real sex, and therefore has a consistent texture throughout compared to some of the more outlandish and varied Fleshlight sleeves, but I find myself grabbing the STU more often than any other.

It's without a doubt my personal favorite Fleshlight and it's one I highly recommend to anybody looking to take their masturbation game to the next level.

Part of the reason why I like it so much is because of how well the hundreds of miniature domes on the inside portion of the sleeve work together to make for an erotically decadent time. Don't forget that the end cap serves to allow you to fine-tune the amount of suction inside the toy for a sort of Chinese finger trap effect except there's little reason you'll want to escape this time around.

#3 - The Max by Lovense: An Awesome Hands-Free Male Masturbator

The Lovense Max is an awesome male masturbator that does most of the work for you. 

Using the power of teledildonics, you're able to control the Lovense Max remotely by using the smartphone app, or by pairing it with the female version (the Nora).

Me and my wife both have fun using the Max, since it allows us to satisfy each other while were apart. Its definitely a toy I'd recommend especially if you have a wife that enjoys sex toys.

However, even if you're just looking for a male masturbator to use by yourself, I'd highly recommend the Max. I've had tons of fun with this toy by myself. It's the closest to somewhat realistic sex I've been able to find. Lovense has done a really great job with this one, I can't say enough good things about it. What the Max offers that I've yet to see in another pocket pussy style toy is the addition of air pumps around the sleeve. Yes, the toy expands and contracts just like a vagina does.  There is a vent to control how much suction the device offers and the air pumps really make things properly tight in all the ways suction misses out on. Put them both together and all of your bases are covered.

Using the Max alone works like this: stick your penis into it, then set the app to your desired setting, then the Max will proceed to pleasure your penis. No need to move it up and down or anything like that, it does all the work for you. If you'd rather not download the app there are some built in settings that do the job quite nicely as well.

All of the bells and whistles are more properly explained on this Lovense Max review page.

#4 - The Fuck Me Silly by Pipedream Extreme: The Most Realistic Option

Okay so you might be wondering, why is there a disembodied bum and vagina staring you in the face?

Well, that would be none other than the Fuck Me Silly Mega Masturbator.

A toy that was popularized as a meme, the Fuck Me Silly is one of the most realistic "masturbation" experiences I'm aware of. I use the air quotes around the word masturbation because quite frankly this toy is less of a male masturbator and more of a sex doll. If you close your eyes, or use a VR headset, it's very easy to forget that you're masturbating.

Honestly, for the ass men out there like myself, I can't tell you how awesome it is to have a 20 pound realistic voluptuous booty sitting on my desk in my home office. I don't say this to brag.

The only caveat to this toy is it's a bit difficult to store. Luckily I live with my wife and she's totally cool with me having a 20 pound disembodied vagina in our closet beside her jewelry cabinet (for some reason) and I recently picked up the 30 pound sister, the Fuck Me Silly Bubble Butt which is even more difficult to store.

If you want a realistic masturbation experience, I highly recommend both of the Fuck Me Silly products. They're definitely not cheap, but if you want a great time and can store the thing: full steam ahead.

Jokes aside, I f*cking love this toy, I always give it one last slap before I put it away and watch it jiggle. Once you start masturbating with a realistic booty and vagina with at thrusting action, it's hard to settle for the stroking motion of regular masturbation again.

#5 - The Vibro by Fleshlight: Simple Yet Genius

After becoming fairly well-versed in Fleshlight's catalog of toys, I noticed they tend to try and eventually plug all the wholes in their catalog.

The Vibro was their answer to the rise in vibrating male masturbators, and they managed to do an excellent job. Three bullet style vibrators powered by small watch batteries (they give you an extra 10!) fit into a special slit inside the sleeve then all you have to do is turn them on and put the sleeve back into the case.

The sleeve design compliments the fact that it vibrates really well. They clearly thought it out, since the parts on the sleeve that protrude outwards on the Vibro are fairly bulky which makes them all the more bouncy once the vibrators are turned on.

In the future I'd like a way to turn the vibrators off and on without having to take the sleeve out and especially some more vibrations towards the middle and end of the toy, but as one of their only vibrating options they managed to make it worthwhile and convenient enough for me to never really be flustered about having to go through the process.

They accomplished their goal in a straightforward and easy to implement fashion, which probably helped keep prices low so I shouldn't complain too much.

#6 - Tenga Egg's: The Best Disposable Masturbator

Using disposable masturbators is the pump and dump version of solo sex, although these are perfect if your partner would rather not get a hand cramp trying to get you off with a handjob.

I was first introduced to these things back in 2017 when my wife ordered me a pack on Amazon as a surprise gift. Without going into too much detail, I've been using them ever since.

They come in a variety of textures and all feel slightly different, however they all feel fantastic.

Tenga Egg's are definitely one of the cheapest options when it comes to masturbatory aids, a pack of 6 will only run you about $25 on Amazon.

Including these in the list is all but essential because they were how I myself got into male sex toys. The cost is nice and low, they're disposable so I wouldn't have to have them on hand for long, and they aren't weird to look at.

I picked up my first pack and immediately wondered why I'd assumed my hand alone was the best way of going about self-pleasure for so long. The low price made it an easy choice for me, since I figured that even if it wasn't for me I hadn't put too much on the line anyway.

#7 - The Pilot by Fleshlight: A Male Masturbator In Disguise

I always found it funny that in the beginning the design of a Fleshlight was made for stealth, but they managed over time to become so instantly recognizable due to their massive success.

The Pilot returns to this old desire as it looks much less out of place and is hardly sexual in nature. This new shape and smaller overall size (8 inches tall as opposed to a full sized Fleshlight's 9.5) also makes it much more ergonomic to use. The dimples on the slender body of the toy make it much easier to grip than a full-sized Fleshlight.

If you aren't the type of person who likes staring down a fake representation of a vagina, the Pilot also entirely avoids any uncanny valley type scenarios with an orifice that's an opaque white and isn't off-putting to look at.

A much less bulky but still satisfying option, I usually throw the Pilot into my luggage whenever I'm on the road and I'd hardly be embarrassed if someone found it, if they didn't manage to see the Fleshlight logo I might even be able to get away with playing it off as something else.

The sleeve design is on point, I'd say it's up there with the STU as one of the most intimately stimulating out of all of their sleeves. I enjoy each ridge & protrusion and find it's one of their tighter toys.

#8 - The Flip Hole by Tenga: The Easiest Toy To Clean

While the Tenga Egg provides an extremely satisfying experience, only getting a minimal amount of uses has certain drawbacks. I only use them once myself but some people wash them after use and use them until they break, that's usually some time into the third use. For the great feeling of Tenga material but in a toy with more longevity, the Flip Hole performs nicely.

It splits open down the middle allowing the inside to be cleaned with ease, and is much more significant than the Tenga Egg in it's construction.

All that aside, it also just feels really soft and welcoming. The inside material parts in a very satisfying way that feels like it should mimic the sound of good pussy. It's a great toy if you like going deep. Its interior has been designed with a variety of ridges and grooves that make you really want to go spelunking, at least they did for me.

Those three buttons you see on the side of the toy are there so you can apply more pressure onto that portion of the sleeve for a much tighter experience. It adds a dynamic flair to using the toy where no two sessions have to be exactly alike.

Just be sure to treat the toy gently during cleanup to make sure it lasts as long as possible, gentle soap like the kind you'd use on your face works best and don't scrub too forcefully.

#9 - The Quickshot by Fleshlight: An Open Design Fleshlight

You'll notice most male masturbators expect you to finish inside the device and deal with the sticky mess after. There's times where I'd really not have to worry about the post-masturbation feeling of having to maintain or sanitize my favorite toy when I'd rather just roll over and go to bed.

The best toy that works around the issue is the Fleshlight Quickshot. The material blend used in Fleshlight is referred to as Superskin, all I can say is that there is a definite reason their Superskin products have so much notoriety (or infamy depending on who you ask).

With the Quickshot, any lube is easily washed from all nooks and crannies if lube was applied and you can bust where ever you please, whether it be napkin, designated sock (we don't judge), or right into the toilet. This alone makes it seem like a nice masturbatory aid as opposed to some sort of mechanical vagina.

Another great aspect of the Quickshot is that it can easily function as an aid during oral sex. Some people have difficulty reaching orgasm through a blowjob, and the Quickshot helps bridge that difficulty by adding in much more stimulation.

Arguably the most discreet sex toy from a recognized brand, I go over the Quickshot from top to bottom in this post.

#10 - The Cobra Libre II: Don't Neglect Your Head

This toy is on the more interesting side, as it doesn't focus on the entirety of the penis but instead focuses 100% on the head. Polishing your purple helmet has never been easier.

It's much smaller than you expect from the pictures, you'll only be able to get your glans and a little bit extra inserted, but with 11 different vibrating patterns I'm glad there's a toy out there that decided to go the specialized route.

The two motors found inside are staggeringly powerful and if you're particularly sensitive you'll get a lot of fun out of this guy. I wholeheartedly recommend playing with the settings as much as you can and finding what works best for you.

There's a lot of different types of stimulation and it's a fun addition to the bedroom. You'll need to have some napkins or something nearby when it comes time to finish though, unless you like making a mess.

I've often used one hand to keep the Cobra Libre in place on my glans while I use my other hand to do some, ahem, accessory work. To that effect, it's pretty sinful. I highly recommend learning how to exploit what the Cobra Libre II has to offer to the fullest.

If you'd like to take a break from strokers and have yourself be pleasured by a wonderfully styled male masturbator like no other in the industry, the Cobra Libre II is a great choice.

A more in-depth review can be found by reading our Cobra Libre II review.

As far as I'm concerned, any of these are great for maintaining sexual health while relieving tension through masturbation. A good male masturbator eliminates complications from death grip (masturbating with the hand clenched too tightly, reducing sensitivity), chafing, or similar problem your right hand can cause with constant use. The amount of options available is enlightening to say the very least, every six months or so something new is released that completely reinvents the wheel.

These toys run the spectrum from completely manual to completely automated and there's a staggering amount of choices on offer. It's simply a matter of separating the wheat from the chaff and sticking to the worthwhile options, a task I've made easier with this handy list that I'll be sure to update as I find more great toys to spend some quality time with.

If none of the above options interest you, there are countless other male masturbators that I've reviewed that you can check out below. Just because some of the products below didn't make this list it doesn't mean they aren't worth a look.

Hi! I'm Don Watson. I'm the male counterpart to Angela's female perspective on this blog we share, I often run my thoughts past her (she has a professional background in sex therapy) before speaking my opinion to make sure my reviews have an honest male perspective that is grounded in reality. Since she's lacking the proper equipment to use most male sex toys of course it's necessary I take one for the team.

My goal with this article is to help narrow down the large pool of available sex toys to just the ones worth stopping to take a look at.
