If you're looking to add another dimension to solo fun or couples play, take a look at our range of vibrators for men.

What is a Male Vibrator?

Male Vibrators come in many different forms and are designed to stimulate the male erogenous zones using vibrations or pulsing motions. Whether you like the feeling of supercharged tingling at the tip of your penis, or you want to send shivers down your shaft with a vibrating male stroker, there's a male vibe to suit everyone.

Why Choose a Male Vibrator?

It's common for women's sex toys to have a vibrating element to them, but now men can enjoy the added sensations that vibrations bring.

By adding extra buzz to popular male sex toys such as strokers, it allows the user to experience additional levels of pleasure including longer, stronger orgasms.

Male vibrators come in a range of designs. Non-anatomical strokers have a universal appeal thanks to their non intimidating design while realistic male masturbators feature lifelike vagina, mouth or ass openings.

The travel case has a small opening at the back for discreet charging and a travel lock on the vibrator means that you’ll never have to pretend your electric toothbrush has gone rogue during transit.

How to Make the Most of Your Male Vibrator

Male masturbators need to be used with a sexual lubricant such as the Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lubricant. This will add to your enjoyment and avoid any unwanted friction.

Make sure you apply a liberal amount of lube to the inside of your stroker or masturbator as well as to your erection. If you're using a P-spot stimulator we'd advise using a lubricant such as the Lovehoney Discover Water-Based Anal Lubricant, which is specially formulated to be thicker and longer-lasting than normal lubricants.

In order to keep your toys in prime condition, it's important that you clean them correctly after each use with a cleaner such as the Lovehoney Fresh Toy Cleaner. After cleaning your Fleshlight we recommend dusting it with Fleshlight Powder Renewer so that it maintains its silky smooth skin feel.
