The Definitive Masturbator Buyer's Guide

 

Which is the Best Masturbator?

We're going to go with something that's not quite obvious when you first think of the word "masturbator". You probably think we'll go with something that looks like a woman, right? Well, we're going to switch it up and say the Tenga Flip Hole. This Japanese brand is blowing everyone's minds with their stylish, sleek and futuristic looking masturbators. The Flip Hole lets you squeeze your shaft at certain points along the way, and the inside of each different device in the series features a variety of crazy bumps, ridges, edges and 'wings' that bring a whole new sensation to the world of masturbation. It's nothing like being with a woman, and it's nothing like using your hand. Plus, they are super easy to clean because you just wash it out with soap and warm water then stand it up on its end to air-dry.

It's well known that men love to masturbate. But what's not always communicated is that it has a lot of health benefits. If you suffer premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction, a masturbator can help you practice staying harder for longer in the privacy of your home. A vibrating toy can even act as a training device in terms of getting you to last longer during sex. If your partner isn't keen to try anal, then a masturbator shaped like a realistic ass can be a great outlet, and might even help open up a dialogue if your partner can see how it's done.

Here's an in-depth look at the top selling masturbators in Australia. You can see the varieties that are popular, learn about the features, start to form an opinion of what you'd like and get some ideas about the sorts of masturbator that might suit your needs.

Tenga Flip Hole

The Flip Hole is unlike any other masturbator on the market. In fact, if you saw it next to someone's bed you could be forgiven for thinking it was some hi-tech nightlight. Unlike many other masturbators on the market, the sleek Japanese device does not attempt to recreate the female anatomy. Instead, it boasts a completely new set of sensations designed to tickle, tease, stimulate and excite. Flip open the device, and you'll see a silicone mould full of raised edges, bumps, holes, wings and ridges with a canal down the middle for your penis.

There are four different varieties of Flip Hole, each with a different silicone pattern inside. Choose from white, silver, red or black or collect them all so you've got a number of different sensations to choose from. The silicone is soft and gel-like and becomes squishy with the addition of lube. There are three buttons along the top of each Flip Hole, and these allow you to squeeze different parts of your shaft to add pressure and intensity. Fill the silicone mold with lube, replace the lid and slide yourself in, feeling each bump and tickle on the way. Thrust in and out, or hold it there and experiment with the buttons.

You can even turn it 180 degrees for a totally new sensation. Each Flip Hole comes with three different lubricants - Mild, Real and Wild. The fully enclosed tube means you won't end up with lube all over the floor, wall or your hands. Cleaning is so easy; you simply open the case and wash with soap and warm water then stand it up to air dry. The price tag might seem high, but the manufacturer has designed it so you'll get around 50 uses from the device. The ability to use a different lube, turn the device 180 degrees and squeeze the buttons to create different levels of suction means you practically getting a few toys for the price of one.

Dr Joel Reversible Masturbator Clear

Sometimes you like it rough, other times you like it smooth. The great thing about this reversible masturbator is that you can have the best of both worlds. The soft, stretchy TPE material is completely clear, allowing you to see exactly what's going on inside the sleeve and you can watch yourself getting harder and filling it up as you work towards a climax. Choose from a completely smooth finish or flip it inside out and enjoy the sensation of bumps and ridges, the choice is yours. TPE stands for Thermo-Plastic Elastomer, and it's hypoallergenic and latex free, which is great if you've got sensitive skin. However, this is a porous material, which means bacteria can become trapped if you don't wash it thoroughly after each use. Being completely waterproof makes it the ideal device to take in the shower, sauna or Jacuzzi, and there are no batteries so it won't accidentally start vibrating if you choose to take it travelling. Try a water-based lubricant for best results.

PDX Fuck Me Silly Masturbator

This is one of the most realistic masturbators on the market, made from soft and flexible Fanta Flesh (designed to feel like real skin) with multiple entry points and a waist that you can grab hold of and position however you like. Try cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, missionary, pile driver and doggie style for starters. The TPR material is super flexible but bounces right back into shape so you can slap it, spread it and flip it over with ease.

Weighing in at around 10kgs, it has some real heft to it and bounces realistically on your lap. Use the included lube and powder to make the Fanta Flesh feel even more life-like. The material even warms up to body temperature as you use it. This product has a foam core, so it's not intended for full submersion in water. The vagina and ass openings are connected, so you can flush these with warm water and soap or toy cleaner clean before and after each use. There is an air-release hole in the back, but you cannot put water in here so follow the manufacturer's cleaning instructions carefully.

Tenga Deep Throat Cup

Japan is famous for its simple, minimalistic designs, and this disposable cup is no different. It comes pre-lubricated, so you don't need to mess around with adding your own. It's the perfect travel companion, and you can simply dispose of it after use. It can be re-used, but you need to follow the cleaning instructions very carefully as the TPE finish is porous and will end up attracting nasty bacteria (note that the pre-lubed sponge can only be used once). It's small, tight and comes fully enclosed, so everything stays inside the cup for easy cleaning.

The real selling feature of this toy is the suction effect that occurs as you thrust in and out. One the tip of the cup there's a silver sticker, which you peel back to reveal the air hole. Cover this entirely for maximum suction, leave it open for no suction or partially cover it to experiment with different sensations. It essentially pushes the air out as you slide in and sucks back in when you pull out. The interior canal is ribbed to add a layer of excitement, and the tip comes to a tight finish. The lube even adds a realistic sound. There's no commitment, no high price tag and no need to clean it after you've climaxed. Simple, right?

PDX Vibrating Super Squeeze-Her

This device takes the traditional masturbator and adds an entirely new level of excitement. It not only tickles and teases thanks to a powerful vibrator, but helps you last longer thanks to the addition of a cock ring. The vibrator is mounted on the cock ring, and you'll feel it right through your shaft and on the sensitive head, and the cock ring squeezes tight for a realistic feeling grip. PipeDream's popular Fanta Flesh is incredibly soft, especially when you add lube to the mix. It warms up with friction and quickly reaches body temperature. The material is porous, so you need to clean it thoroughly before and after each use.

The Most Popular Masturbator Brands

The market for male sex toys is huge, and can be overwhelming. We've outlined a few of our favourite brands below, as we feel they offer excellent quality products that are built to last. We like companies who are innovative and offer a wide range of price points to suit every guy out there.

Tenga

When a former auto-mechanic decides to start a company selling male masturbators, you know the designs are going to be sleek, efficient, durable and built to last. Tenga is a Tokyo-based brand that sells some of the most exciting masturbators on the market. The word "elegant" is not often used to describe these sorts of devices, but the name Tenga actually means "righteously arranged and elegant" so you know this company is putting its money where its mouth is. The range includes disposable cups, the Flip series, the Egg series and the reversible Tenga 3D designs.

The difference between Tenga and a lot of other companies out there is that their designs don't mimic the female body. The focus is on style, design and functionality. By not having to worry about a realisitic looking or feeling device, they can turn their attention to designing an incredibly stimulating masturbator instead.

The Different Types of Masturbators

Now we take an in-depth look at the various kinds of masturbator.

Non-vibrating masturbators

Sleeve Non-Vibrating

The idea of a sleeve is to mimic the entrance to a vagina, an asshole or a mouth without necessarily looking like one. Companies like Tenga in Japan are highly focused on the design and functionality aspect, so their stylish products almost look like the latest release from Apple. Often known as "strokers", the interior shaft will have a series of ridges and bumps while the outside will have a rough texture to help your grip. Slide in and thrust at your own pace, and we recommend using plenty of lube. You can buy various lengths and widths; it's just a matter of finding out what suits your needs. Perhaps you want a tight fit, or you might want something looser that you can squeeze to fit tightly around your individual sweet spot.

Vibrating masturbators

Vibrating

The addition of a vibrator adds a whole new layer to the masturbatory experience, and thankfully there are many brands out there that are coming up with exciting vibrating devices. Try Pipedream's PDX Vibrating Freshman Fuckhole, Cal Exotic's Adonis Vibrating Stroker or Alexis Amore's Vibrating Pussy and Ass for a start. The idea is to send tickling, teasing stimulations down the shaft and into the head of the penis. If a device comes with the vibrating bullet mounted on a cock ring, like the PDX Vibrating Super Squeeze-Her, then you'll have the added benefit of constricting the balls and helping you to stay harder for longer. For something completely different, why not try the world's first vibrator for men - Fun Factory's Cobra Libre.

Hand-held masturbators

Hand-Held

As opposed to a full torso or body design that you can rest on the bed and thrust into, these types of masturbators are like an extension of your hand.

  • Vagina - Often known as Fleshlights or Pocket Pussies, you can choose the flesh colour, with or without pubic hair, the tightness and the type of material it's made from. Some have a realistic feeling interior, designed to mimic sex with a woman. Others have an exciting series of bumps, ridges, nubs and edges to give you a completely different sensation. You can choose an open-ended device to make cleanup easier, or something that's closed in for added sensation at the tip of the penis (but is trickier to clean).
  • Mouth - Holding an instant blowjob in the palm of your hand is like a dream come true for many guys. Use plenty of lube and let these mouth-shaped wonders do the rest. Choose from a full mouth, a mouth with a textured tongue or something with a full and realistic-looking (and feeling) face. You can even choose one that's been molded on a celebrity, like Sasha Grey's Deep Throat Sucker from Doc Johnson. These are ideal if your partner is not a fan of giving blowjobs, or you need to give them a break halfway through the job.
  • Anus - If you've always wanted to try anal but haven't met a willing partner, this is the perfect toy for you. There is a mindblowing variety of masturbators out there that have been designed to look like asses, so the world is your oyster. Most will offer the full set of buttocks with an anal entrance, some will also include a pussy at the front.
  • Non-Descript - Sometimes you don't want to be distracted by bells and whistles, you just want to get down to business. There are lots of companies who are focusing on unique designs and functionality rather than turning their attention to making realistic-looking devices. Try the Mojo Stimulator, with its 120 rotating beads or the New Sensations Love Me Tender sleeve. These will often be made from a higher quality TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) material, which is free of latex and phthalates because they don't need to have that realistic "bouncy" finish. They're also less likely to require a clever hiding spot if you're expecting company.
Body styled masturbators

Body Part

Like the Fuck Me Silly range of masturbators, these are masturbators that are designed to replicate complete parts of the body, beyond just the mouth, ass or vagina. Often shaped and molded on real bodies, this kind of masturbator incorporates a lot more than just the pleasure hole. You'll usually get legs, torso, and sometimes even the whole head included. This means arms, shoulders, or simply the entire body.

Multi-pleasure masturbators

Multi Pleasure

Most masturbators only have one pleasure hole, but this kind of masturbator has multiple ways to please - most commonly being the vagina and anus. You can enjoy, one or both holes in the same toy.

Things to Consider When Buying A Masturbator

Now that we've narrowed down the sorts of masturbators on the market, you need to start thinking about the nitty-gritty. Sure, stuff like price and materials aren't as sexy as choosing the perfect set of lips or your preferred shade of pink. But often a choice will come down to something as simple as "Can I afford this?" Take a look at the following considerations before making a decision. You might just learn something new while you're at it. There is a wide variety of products to suit your masturbation desires.

Materials/Compounds

The material you choose is important, as jelly rubber is cheap but it can also smell weird and be a breeding ground for bacteria due to its porous nature. Something made from TPE or TPR will cost more but is going to be a higher quality device, while still offering the stretchiness of rubber. Silicone is the most body-safe material you can buy, but it doesn't offer the stretch of rubber. So have a good think before buying, especially if you have sensitive skin.

  • Silicone - It doesn't get much more body safe than silicone. Non-porous (won't become a breeding ground for bacteria), hypoallergenic (great for sensitive skin), latex free and also free of phthalates (a controversial chemical that is used to soften plastics, which has been linked to some pretty serious health issues). However, when it comes to male masturbators, silicone isn't exactly the most flexible material. It doesn't feel realistic, and won't offer any stretch, bounce or jiggle. So you won't find a lot of products that are 100% silicone.
  • Composites - This type of finish can feature a couple of different materials, like a plastic core with a silicone coating or a plastic handle and a silicone or TPE tip.
  • Rubber - Rubber is a popular material for masturbators because it's soft, stretchy, bouncy, jiggly, easy to dye in a million different colours, and it's cheap. However, it usually smells pretty weird and is porous, so you might find that it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. You can't sterilise it, so rubber will never be 100% disinfected. We recommend using a condom and following the cleaning instructions carefully if you're going to buy a rubber masturbator.
  • TPE - This stands for Thermo-Plastic Elastomer, and it's porous (so bacteria can get into the pores if it's not cleaned properly before and after use) but it's free of nasty phthalates, latex, and it's hypoallergenic. TPE masturbators will cost more, but you're getting a higher quality product.

Choosing the right material will make a huge difference to the feel of the toy - typically silicone is chosen as the premium, or top end masturbator material - the material of choice for most experienced purchasers. We highly recommend silicone based toys, anything else is likely to feel cheap and deteriorate quickly.

Materials of masturbators
Visual appearance of the masturbator

Visual Appearance

When you look down, what do you want to see? A realistic-looking pussy tightly wrapped around your penis? A see-through sleeve so you can watch yourself get harder and fill it up? A full torso, complete with a waist that you can grab hold of and flip over? A smooth, sleek, elegant capsule coated in a glossy red finish? You can have all this and more. Every guy is different, and it might even be a question you need to ask your partner if they're going to be joining the fun. You can even take into consideration the way the pussy looks, from a tight opening like the PDX Nasty Nympho or something that includes labia, like Doc Johnson's Kimberly Kane UR3.

Tenga's range of sleek, elegant Flip Holes look nothing like a woman from the outside, but have been designed to blow your mind from the inside, with an interior canal that's surrounded by a carefully placed series of bumps, nubs and ridges. Or you might want something like the PDX 1 On the Cock and 1 On the Balls, which will replicate the feeling of a threesome, thanks to a vagina opening and a lifelike tongue that stimulates your balls while you are penetrating the pussy.

The visual appearance of your masturbator all comes down to personal preference - once you have nailed down the material, and the features you want then choosing the most visually appealing of toys in those requirements is far easier. Choose what you like, and what you think looks good!

Size

The size and shape of your masturbator is totally up to you. Most are a "one size fits all" type thing, and it doesn't matter if you're short and thick or long and thin. Every dick is different, but most of the higher end devices are made to suit everyone, with enough features inside to satisfy all sizes. The material will usually be stretchy and flexible enough to grow with you, which is why materials like TPE and TPR are so popular when it comes to masturbators.

Size
Vibrating vs non-vibrating

Vibrating vs Non-Vibrating

A vibrating masturbator allows you to experience something you can't get through sex alone. Choose from a range of settings, including gentle teasing pulses to intense vibrations.

Pro's of Vibrating

  • 1 - Brings an added dimension to masturbation that you can't get from sex or manual stimulation.
  • 2 - You are in full control of how intense or subtle the vibrations are, and can experiment with what works best for you, and on what area's of your penis and balls.
  • 3 - A vibrating masturbator means that you could sit back and ride into orgasm with no stroking at all - imagine that!

Pro's of Non-Vibrating

  • 1 - Silent (except for whatever noises you add to the mix!) so you can take it travelling without fear of it going off in your luggage.
  • 2 - No fiddling around with batteries, cords or rechargers.
  • 3 - Will usually be fully waterproof and can be taken in the bath, shower or spa.
  • 4 - No chance of electric shock. We've all heard those stories of the guy who gets inadvertently electrocuted on his penis - you might prefer to avoid that (albeit a very slim) chance of it happening to you.

Again, this choice all comes down to personal preference. The only thing we recommend to consider is, if you are sensitive around the penis or prone premature ejaculation then you might want to consider trying a masturbator/stroker that is non-vibrating first. You might find that non-vibrating masturbator is more than enough and that you can last longer - you might prefer this. That being said, of course, you might be happy with fast orgasms that feel WAY more intense - maybe you should grab a vibrating masturbator!

Moulded on a Famous Porn Star vs Unknown

If you've ever watched your favourite porn star in action and wondered what it would be like to fuck them in real life, a masturbator that they've helped create can bring the fantasy to life. Favourites such as Jenna Jameson, Bree Olson, Sasha Gray, Bonnie Rotten and Jessie Andrews have all sat down and had casts made of their vaginas and asses, and these have then been used to create an exact replica that you can fuck in your own home. For some guys, this is a dream come true. Others prefer to stick with something that has been designed purely around pleasure instead of aesthetics, so it might not feel realistic inside but could come with the added inclusion of ribbing or ridges or a suction seal instead. It's all about what you're comfortable with. Often the ones based on real people are more expensive, and might come with an x-rated DVD to help bring the fantasy to life.

The manufacturer/brand of cock ring might matter to some people

Trusted Brands

Unfortunately, not all masturbators are made the same. These things are designed to take a pounding, and you want to make sure you get your money's worth. Nothing in this life lasts forever, and you might find that your masturbator splits, tears, fades or loses elasticity over time. That's why you should always buy from a trusted brand, and preferably one who offers prompt customer service and a warranty. Some of the brands we love and recommend when it comes to the world's best masturbators include Cal Exotics, Doc Johnson, PipeDream and Tenga.

Price

Price is one of the biggest factors when you're considering buying a masturbator. We highly recommend paying more for a product if it means you're getting a high quality, body safe finish that's been designed to last more than one use (unless you've chosen to buy a disposable toy like Tenga's range). The more features something has, the more it's going to cost. It's just the way it goes. So if you want something that feels realistic, gives you more body parts to grab and has been cast from a real-life pussy (like the PDX Fuck Me Silly or the Alexis Amore range) then you need to be prepared to pay for it. Alternatively, if you're not sure a masturbator is right for you then start off basic. Go with something discrete, like the Doc Johnson Optimale Ur3 Reversible 2 Way Stroker, the Tenga Double Hole Cup or the PDX Beaded Pussy.

price can be a consideration

Summary

Hopefully our extensive masturbator guide has given you a wealth of information and helped you make a more informed purchase.

Remember, masturbating isn't just for pleasure and it should not be feared or thought of as bad. It is, in fact, good for your health. It can help with issues like premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and most importantly depression - it's a release of endorphins that cannot be achieved in any other way (these are the natural happy drug that the body releases upon orgasm). The best natural high that the body can produce!

It's also a great way to help improve your sex life. So don't go it alone. Find something that helps prolong the pleasure and spice up the journey. We hope you've found this guide useful and have narrowed down your choices. The only thing left to do now is go shopping.

Get in touch with our support staff if you've got any questions about buying a masturbator. We've been doing this for a long time, and there's no question too big, small or personal.
