Looking for something to revolutionise your sex life? Male masturbators give a better-than-real feel, with textures that stimulate and tease the nerve endings in the penis better than a hand ever could.
Male masturbators like strokers make a great first time sex toy for men - they're easy to use, easy to clean and give out-of-this-world stimulation. They’re also inexpensive, allowing you to experiment with a variety of textures and styles without breaking the bank.
If you or your partner have reservations about male sex toys because of their realistic look, a non-anatomical masturbator is a great alternative. If you're looking for a more lifelike experience, you may want to check out our range of realistic vaginas instead.
Using a stroker to masturbate will build up to a more satisfying climax, leading to a more sexually satisfied you - whether you’re in a relationship or not.
How to Use a Male Stroker
Strokers are generally more discreet than other male masturbators and are not anatomically modelled, making them universally appealing and non-intimidating. The inside of a stroker features a textured canal that stimulates the penis while the outside is often ridged to ensure a good grip during use.
Many strokers, like the Lovehoney Reversible Double Stroker Ultimate (left) are reversible and offer two completely different textures in one male sex toy for double the fun.
All strokers need to be used with a sexual lubricant to allow the stroker to slide up and down the penis without uncomfortable friction.
Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lubricant (£5.99) is a water-based lube that can be used with all strokers. The lube should be applied to both the inside of the stroker and to your erection. Once you and your stroker are lubed, you can penetrate the entry. Start by working it around the head of your penis, enjoying the sensations of the entrance and ensuring everything is slick and lubey. Then, get ready to enter the stroker.
At first, the entrance to the stroker might look like a tight fit, but the stroker will expand to take your girth. Hold the base of your penis and the stroker firmly and ease into the stroker. One you are inside, it's time to work out your favourite way to use it.
Start by gripping the outside of the stroker and gently stroking it up and down your length. Be careful not to go to far back and forth to begin with, so you don't slide right out - as you get to grips with the stroker you can be more vigorous with your movements. Try twisting the stroker as you move it, massaging the head of the penis.
If your stroker has an opening at the other end (and most of them do) you can use your finger to partially or fully cover the hole to increase suction inside the stroker. It can take a few tries to successfully master the art of varying suction and keeping a grip on your stroker while stroking, but as with all things practice does make perfect.
The first time you use your stroker, you'll probably come quite quickly but gradually building up your sexual stamina is all part of the stroker's purpose.
Couples have been incorporating vibrators into their relationships for years and although you can't use a stroker while you have sex, they're are great for couples too. Opt for a see-through sleeve so you both get an intimate view of the action.
Using a stroker is great as part of foreplay with your partner, intensifying your pleasure before sex, but they're also great for mutual masturbation or at times when you want to be intimate together but don't feel up to full sex. If your lover gets tired while giving you a hand job, a stroker will ease their task and you'll love your stroker even more when your partner's working it for you.
