Beginner's Guide to Male Sex Toys
Sex toys for men are a relatively new thing. Blow-up dolls and penis pumps have been around for years but these are often seen as gag gifts to embarrass your mates. But what about those male sex toys that are designed for pleasure, either during solo sex or as foreplay with a partner?
Over the past few years, an overwhelming amount of sex toys aimed at men have become available. Some, like the Fleshlight, have an incredible reputation which puts them up in the leagues of the rabbit vibrator for women. Others, like the Utensil Race products, have more of a cult following but prove to be best-sellers time and time again.
To help you sort the wheat from the chaff, we thought it was about time we give you an overview of all our male sex toys, what they do and what to look out for. If you’re buying for yourself or your partner, this guide will definitely come in handy.

Designed to gently trap blood in the penis once you have achieved an erection, cock rings are available in many different materials, sizes and shapes. A ring will improve the firmness of the penis and also increase your stamina! Cock rings can be used during sex to enhance both yours and your partners enjoyment or you can slip it on before using a penis pump for long lasting results.
