The MH A – Z Guide Of Sex Toys For Men

A = Air

The hourglass shape of the Tenga AirTech Reusable Vacuum Masturbator makes this a handy tool (even with um, slippery hands). Slip inside it and you’ll be welcomed by the flexible material, but it’s the air chambers on the outside of the sleeve that sets it apart. They help increase the vacuum sensation by allowing for the air to flow round easier, enhancing sensations. Plus, the inner sleeve is removable and washable. Beats your socks.

Touch of bondage to spice up that dull cousin’s wedding you’ve been invited to? Wear this bondage bow tie to the event, then get her to sneak away with you so you can unveil its other qualities.

C = Cock Rings

They’ve been around for over two thousand years, but the original materials such as ivory and jade have made way for more rewarding substances. And according to the 2017 Désir Intimate Collection Sex Toy Report, cock rings were the third favourite sex toy after vibrators and lingerie.

Don’t know where to start? Hot Octopuss’ Atom Plus is the world’s first penis ring with dual integrated motors, that enable intense perineum stimulation on top of everything you’ve come to know and love about cock rings.

E = Erogenous Zones

Yes, you have more than one. The head and shaft of the penis, testicles, perineum, anus and prostate are all sexy spots. And if you’re wanting to know 10 erogenous zones you should be touching, head here.

F = Foreplay

Women don’t only love it, they need it to get to the finish line. Here’s an option that doesn’t require any hard work from you. The We-Vibe Jive is a remote/app-controllable egg vibrator that can be used in public for secret foreplay.

G = Google

You’re an inquisitive bunch. South Africans had the third highest search volume for sex toys in the world in 2016, according to Google.

H = Headsets

Headsets are the new handjobs. If you’re a VR porn virgin, Naughty America offers experiences with “performers” you can interact with by attaching your phone to a headset.

I = Ipad

Turns out your tablet can deliver a lot more fun than Need For Speed. Fleshlight has designed a frame that you can place your iPad into, with a space to insert a toy, thus transforming your screen into an interactive playmate.

K = Kegels

There’s a solid reason you want to encourage her to do kegel exercises to tighten her pubococcygeus (PC) muscles, the lovely chaps that are responsible for the contractions she feels during climax. She’ll thank you for this G-Vibe G Balls2 App-Controlled Vibrating Kegel Balls that is her own personal sex-fitness coach.

L = Lubricant

Let’s talk anal play. It can be like spicy food. It hurts, but it’s good. If you’re ready to go there (and check out P to see why you should), then a desensitising lubricant will help ease you into the experience. Massaging it on your rim won’t numb it, but will help you relax. Experts recommend that if you are using a silicon toy, use a water-based lubricant rather than a silicon based one to avoid the material deteriorating.

M = Make Your Own

Ready to clone your penis? It’s no secret that 3D printers are going to change our lives in unimaginable ways. A particularly hot project called DilDIY is working on a programme enabling you to recreate, customise and print your prick.

N = Neutral

As in gender neutral. The Mystery Vibe Crescendo is a serious multitasker. You can twist it, bend it, fold it, curve it—whatever you want, basically. Both ends are sealed so you can go for double insertion (if you’re into that), the vibration settings range from low to intense to stimulate sensitive genital areas, and it’s totally waterproof. It’s perfect for her, him, her and him, him and him, her and her, and every other combination possible.

O = Orgasm

Want to know how to power yours up? Anal beads (try the friendly looking Flexi Felix Anal Chain if you’re new to this) are easy to insert, but it’s their exit that serves up surprises. Ask your partner to gently pull it out as you come and prepare to see stars.

P = P-Spot

Hello bum fun. Prostate massagers are curved to reach the P-spot and massage it. Some also massage the perineum for extra stimulation. Try the Rocks Off Naughty Boy Prostate Stimulator or the Fifty Shades Of Grey Delicious Fullness Vibrating Butt Plug.

S = Strap-On

Put her in the driving seat for a change with the Body Extensions Be Bold Strap On. Strap-ons are muscling their way into relationships, confirms Dr Careen Rascher, Sexual Medicine Specialist at the My Sexual Health clinic in Bryanston, but warns “there has to be preexisting trust and intimacy before experimenting with such sex play.”

So that business trip you’ve got planned shouldn’t be a prob – in fact it’s bound to put a smile on your partner’s face. Even better, take your play outside.

V = Viagra

While Viagra is sometimes used recreationally to achieve longer erections, you shouldn’t dabble with the blue pill unless you truly need it. “PDE5 inhibitors can be dangerous if used when you have certain medical conditions, or in combination with certain prescription medication and recreational drugs, including nitrites,” warns Dr Rascher. If you are using “Viagra” not prescribed by a doctor you may get contaminated tablets or incorrect dosages, she warns.

W = Washing

You’ve eaten the meal, so you need to wash the dishes, dude. Keep your toys hygienic (and extend the shelf life) by using a toy cleaner such as the anti-bacterial Pjur Med 2-in-1 Clean Spray.

X = X-tra Big

Think of a penis pump as Crossfit for your dick. They can be used for both penis enlargement or to help with erectile dysfunction. The Bathmate Hydro7 Beginners Hydrotherapy Penis Pump is designed to increase both the girth and length of the penis, it can be used in the bath or shower by making use of a vacuum that draws blood into the penis, which creates a larger and longer-lasting erection, while the water assists with blood flow.
