Buying Guides - Male Pleasure

Most men think they already know everything there is to know about their juicy bits! But just because you know how your tools work, doesn’t mean you can build the Eiffel Tower! In fact, most guys begin masturbating in furtive ways – they do it fast and then figure out what to do with the evidence afterwards! This often creates a powerful pattern of masturbating quickly, without really paying attention to where your sexual arousal can take you. Indeed, most men only ever experience a fraction of their full orgasmic potential. But by taking matters into your own hands with one of our specially designed male masturbator sex toys and following our super sexy guide to giving great “hand”, you’re guaranteed to elevate the humble old hand job to super sex status!

More than yank, yank, wank
An Australian study has found that men who masturbate on a regular basis are less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life. In fact, men who masturbate to ejaculation more than five times per week are actually a third less likely to develop the disease! But obviously that’s not the only reason we take pleasure into our own hands… Masturbation also ignites our sexual response system which releases hormones that produce feelings of relaxation, pleasure, increased energy and even euphoria! In other words, masturbation is fun!

Slip, slide and glide
Sometimes a combination of saliva and pre-ejaculatory fluid (the stuff that comes out before orgasm when you’re excited) is enough to keep things nice and slippery. Right? Wrong! A hand job without lubrication is like a roast dinner without the gravy. Keeping a tube of lube “handy” when manually masturbating your manhood won’t just take you to heaven; you’ll think you’re being driven there by a big-busted blonde in a Ferrari!

But with so many different lubricants on the market today, how do you go about choosing the lube that’s right for you and your toy? Begin by checking out our Vital Stats box when purchasing your sex toys from adultshop.com as we’ve taking the guess work out of pumping up your pleasure by suggesting the lubricants that are most compatible with the material your sex toys are made from.

Different strokes for different folks
Without a doubt, stroking is the most popular way to stimulate the penis. You simply grab on with one or both hands and stroke up and down. Of course you can experiment with pressure and with pace, but hands down this is the most tried and true way to get those gonads going!

But how about trying a twist on your usual technique? From the sublime to the ridiculous, these tips and tricks are guaranteed– at the very least – to mix your masturbation up a bit:

Does the left hand know what the right hand’s doing?
Do you always use the same hand to masturbate? Most guys do! If you’re among them, start with a simple switching of hands. It might feel strange at first and your rhythm may be a little off, but isn’t that just like having sex with someone new for the first time? Enjoy this newness, and see if a new hand can teach an old hand some tricks!

Experiment with positions
If you aren’t the experimental type, it’s time to start. If you’re used to masturbating lying down on your back, try sitting up. If you normally sit in a chair, try standing or kneeling instead. So what if you feel silly at first - you’ll probably go back to the “old faithful” anyway, but see what masturbation feels like in a different position, and you might just open up a whole new world of sensation!

Get your hips moving
The way your body moves when you masturbate is probably very different from the way it moves when you’re having sex with someone else. Many men don’t move at all when they masturbate, so why not try moving your hips and simulate the thrusting of intercourse? Take special note of how moving your hips in different ways can bring you closer to, and at times take you further away from, the point of no return.

The cold climax
Try masturbating as you normally would, but when you feel the sensation of ejaculation coming on, grab hold of some ice cubes or crushed ice with the other hand, then continue masturbating until you’re spent. The feeling of cold in one hand, heat in the other, and the sensation of ejaculating will almost definitely enhance the experience – oh yeah!

Run rings around it
Cover both your hands with lubricant, and then form a ring with your thumb and forefinger. Place it around the base of your penis and slide this “ring” up to the base of the glans (where the head of your custard chucker starts). Now form a ring with the fingers on your other hand and do the same thing. Keep stroking with one ring at a time until you climax.

The palm rubber
Once you're erect place some lubricant on the inside of one hand then, using the other hand to hold onto your shaft, rub the head of your penis and shaft lengthways against your lubed-up palm. This will create amazing friction, especially for the glans. Or rub your penis between both palms, as if you were rubbing two sticks together to create fire in the wild. Now there’s a fantasy!

The ball holder
The next time you're masturbating and feel as though you're about to ejaculate, put your other hand over your ball bag and lightly squeeze and pull it down (or more aggressively, if you like that sort of thing). That way, you get to feel your man juice flowing through your body making its way to the exit.

The gentle tap
Although you have to have a sensitive penis for this to work effectively, this will at least demonstrate that you don't if it doesn't work! Keep your budgie smugglers on and make your manhood stand to attention. Once you're bursting at the seams, tap the tip of your tool with the top of your finger tips. It should take somewhat longer than usual for you to reach climax but when you do, look out!

The twist
While standing, twist your lubed-up hand (whichever one you're most comfortable using) so that your thumb is against your belly button. Wrap your hand around your penis and, rather than stroke it with your hand, move your pelvis to pump it in and out of your hand instead. It'll make you feel like you're actually penetrating a vagina – or, maybe not!

Explore your shaft
While most of the nerve endings on the penis are at the head, and specifically the frenulum, many men will have spots on their shaft that are unusually sensitive. Try putting one hand at the base of your penis and press it towards your body while experimenting with different hand strokes along the shaft of your penis. Treat this like a treasure hunt, and try to feel the difference between one side and the other, between stimulation near the base and up near the tip.

Check out the neighborhood
While the penis and scrotum tend to be the epicenter of masturbatory attention, if you’re looking to open things up a bit, be sure to take a tour of some other nearby areas. The perineum, the area between the scrotum and anus, is very sensitive to pressure and massage, and rubbing it provides external prostate stimulation. Speaking of which, don’t be afraid to explore your bum, both externally and by using a finger for penetration.

Bring it all together
Not everything you try is going to do it for you, but the idea behind the tips, tricks and techniques above is simply to try other things, and then incorporate whatever you like into the way you regularly masturbate. Maybe it’s a different stroke, a position, or a breathing technique. Obviously there is no one correct way to masturbate, and even if you’ve got something that works for you, consider the fact that there could be more out there if you experiment with it too!

Masturbation myths
It’s only since the sexy 60s that masturbation has become widely understood and truly accepted a healthy. Previously we were warned not to choke the chicken because we would go blind, grow hair on our hands, and become infertile! Another myth about male masturbation is that you shouldn’t use anything other than your hand. While your hand might just be doing the trick, we’ve just seen that there’s so much more to masturbation than the pump and tug! And by adding some clever accessories you can make the stimulation even more intense, which of course can inspire you to be more creative with yourself - and with your lover!

A note to self
There are lots of ways to simulate the sensation of thrusting into her honey pot. You could even create a mock vagina with your hand by making a fist for the glans to enter as you pump your shaft with your other hand. But if you’re looking at a more creative alternative, and are preparing to purchase a masturbation sleeve, you should consider whether you want one with an open end or closed… The choice is yours, but basically:

Open-ended is good because:

  • it makes your sex toy so much easier to clean, particularly as many can be turned inside out when washing
  • if you can turn your sex toy inside out then you’ll get extra value for money with two differently textured sleeves providing two very different sensations (smooth/outside and ribbed/inside)
  • it allows you to see your penis “working” and gives you the added thrill of being able to pump your penis in and out
  • your girl can use it to masturbate your shaft while she tickles and teases the head of your dick with her tongue for deep throat with a difference
  • it can be more comfortable for a bloke with a longer than average penis and
  • you can cheat and use her vibrator on the open end to give your hand job an extra buzz!

A closed in end is also good because:

  • the suction on the head of your custard chucker can be stronger as can the sensation down your shaft
  • there’s more cushion for the pushin’… meaning it better simulates a real vagina when you’ve got something to “hit” at the end
  • not a drop of your precious man juice is spilt when you cum because its contained in the toy
  • which also means that fantasies like the cream pie and cum facial become even easier to play out and
  • you get to experience full length stimulation without “popping out” the end!

Either way you play, you’ll add an extra dimension to your dirk diggler-ing when you add a masturbation sleeve or sex toy. But remember: A good hand job is like a good movie. It should start off slow and interesting, and then build steadily to a glorious climax – with plenty of interesting twists and turns along the way!
