Technology has made some exciting strides in the realm of sex toys. Toys aren’t just for women; there are plenty of options out there for men as well, and they’ve gone a long way from the “pocket pussy” (not that there’s anything wrong with that old stand-by!). Frequent ejaculation is believed to be a component of good penis health, and masturbation is a great way for a man to get to know his body. Not to mention, it’s one of the more enjoyable activities in the world. Learning about the amazing options out there can help a man expand his masturbatory horizons, and his lady’s, too.
As the name suggests, the Autoblow 2 is designed to simulate the feeling of oral sex. It has a sleeve in which the penis is inserted, and two rows of rollers that move up and down the penis via motor power. The sleeve is easy to wash. It is recommended that men use a water-based lube with the toy. The Autoblow 2 runs upwards of $159.00, but for a hands-free solo-based simulated blow job, that’s not likely too steep for many men.
The Lovely is a wearable device for the penis that serves many functions. First, it vibrates, which is a pleasurable experience whether with a partner or on one’s own. But where the real technology comes in is with the Lovely App; the device records data, including thrusting G-force, speed and sex positions, and sends this information to an app that men can use to analyze their performance. Partners can participate in this process as well. Along with vibrating and giving performance information, the app makes suggestions for new positions to try. Finally, it counts how many calories a man burns during his romp.
Lovely’s creators launched an IndieGoGo campaign to fund the product, but the campaign fell short. However, the creators are continuing to gather investors, so men should keep their eyes out for this fun device.
This funky toy allows couples to get frisky in public, adding a whole new level to foreplay. The man uses an Android or iPhone app to control the vibrator from up to 30 feet away, and the toy can be worn by a woman wherever she goes (it comes with a thong that contains a pocket for the vibrator). This opens up some options for couples with a naughty streak – the man can surprise the woman with a pulse here or there while they’re out on the town, or send her on a prolonged journey to orgasm unexpectedly from another room. Discuss boundaries with partners.
These are but a few of the many options out there for playful men, and, with ever-advancing technology, the market can only be expected to grow more innovative and titillating.
As men incorporate new toys into the mix, they may find themselves spending a bit more time than before using their members. It’s important to practice good hygiene and take extra care of the skin to prevent chafing and dryness.
Along with thoroughly washing all sex toys with mild cleanser and using plenty of lube, men may also want to invest in a penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). A crème with Shea butter and vitamin E provides superior moisture to protect skin from the frictions of the day and night, helping keep it soft, smooth and ready for the next romp, be it with a hand, toy or partner. Man1 Man Oil also contains acetyl L-carnitine, which has neuroprotective properties; this is important, as frequent and/or rough handling can lead to a deadening of penile nerves and therefore of pleasure over time. Keep the penis in top form with a penis health crème to ensure that those sex toys stay enjoyable for the long-haul.
