    The first time I saw a fleshlight was probably 19 years old. My partner showed me his toy. He said, “I used this post-breakup. And it helped me feel good about myself.” 

    I was shocked. I’ve heard of dildos and vibrators, more for women. But I’ve never seen male-friendly toys. It looked like a Pringles canister with more cushion inside. The naive woman in me asked, “How does it even work?” He explained that it’s meant to replicate the feeling of a vagina. 

    If you’ve ever been curious about how the fleshlight came to be, read this fascinating history. 

    You know, when we talk about sex toys, it’s like the world only knows about those made for women. But that moment I came across a male sex toy, it was a real eye-opener. 

    So here, we’ll chat about the other side of the coin, the side that’s often left in the shadows. We'll discuss the nitty-gritty of male-friendly toys, answering your burning questions and busting some myths. So, it might just give you an idea of what to give your male sexual partner. 

    Why Men's Sex Toys Matter

    For me, there's something irresistibly attractive about a man who's open to exploring new avenues in the bedroom. That's why I see men's sex toys as revolutionary. They're not just about fleeting pleasure; they're akin to unlocking a whole new dimension in your sexual experiences.

    I often think that if more men viewed sex toys as they do video games—a realm of exploration and excitement—the stigma around them might fade. Despite their growing popularity, male sex toys are still unfairly judged compared to their female counterparts. I've heard male friends dismiss them with comments like, "Why would I need that?" But such views miss out on the real advantages these toys offer.

    Research solidly backs these benefits. Studies reveal that men using sex toys enjoy enhanced sexual experiences. This includes improvements in bed like stronger erections and more intense orgasms. These toys don't just elevate pleasure; they also boost sexual desire, creating new peaks in sexual experiences.

    Furthermore, they're instrumental in addressing issues like premature or delayed ejaculation, significantly enhancing sexual prowess. The exploration of sex toys isn't just fun; it's a journey towards better, more fulfilling sexual experiences.

    Prostate Massager: These little wonders are all about hitting that sweet spot. The payoff? Some seriously mind-blowing O's.  Pick one with an ergonomic shape. Just remember, lube is your best friend here and slip it in nicely. There are some wand massagers that are made of stainless steel. This material is known to give the right amount of pressure and stimulation. 

    Butt Plugs: Don't let the name put you off. These guys are all about upping the ante in the pleasure department, whether you're flying solo or with a partner. 

    Anal Beads: Imagine a slow, tantalizing build-up with an explosive payoff. That’s what these beaded beauties bring to the table.

    Dildos: Not just for women! Men can join in on the fun too, exploring new realms of pleasure solo or with a partner. Try this if you’ve always been curious about pegging. 

    Cock Ring: This little ring is a game-changer, making everything feel bigger, bolder, and better. Pick one that’s comfortable without feeling restricted. Pay attention to the material and fit. You can wear this on the base of the shaft or underneath the balls. 

    Penis Pump: Think of it as a gym workout for your manhood. It’s all about boosting what you've got and spicing things up in the bedroom.

    If you're feeling adventurous and creative, DIY male sex toys can be an exciting project. One simple DIY option for the adventurous is the homemade Fleshlight. 

    Start with a sturdy container, like a Pringles can or a tightly rolled-up towel covered in plastic wrap. Next, add some lubricant for a smooth experience. You can get creative by experimenting with different textures, such as sponges or silicone molds, placed inside the container for added pleasure.

    But let's not stop there. There are plenty of other options for DIY male sex toys. Consider repurposing household objects like gloves, socks, or even fruits (think melons or bananas) for a unique and pleasurable experience.

    Remember, safety is crucial, so choose materials wisely and clean your homemade toys thoroughly. And if you ever want to explore beyond DIY, there are plenty of male-friendly sex toys available on the market designed specifically for your pleasure.

    Keeping It Clean

    Proper cleaning and maintenance is crucial for maintaining the longevity and hygiene of your sex toys. Most male sex toys can be cleaned using warm water and mild soap. However, it is essential to consult the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer, as different materials may require different cleaning methods.

    Some toys are even dishwasher safe or can be sterilized by boiling them in water for a certain period. Remember to store your toys in a clean, dry place to prevent the growth of bacteria or damage.

    My Takeaway

    Ending the year, we always make our resolutions. And one of the things I think every couple or sex-positive person should think about is how they can add healthy pleasure in their lives. 

    And, one that I’ve learned is that adult toy play is also a good way to bring something new to the bedroom. So, if you’ve never tried male sex toys, consider this as my words of encouragement. Go for it!
