How Can Men Use Vibrators?

on 29 Apr 2020

When I think about vibrators, I realise that although they're really adaptable, they seem to be commonly marketed towards women.

Even in my personal life, I'd say that the women I know are much more likely to own a vibrator than the men. Vibrators are crowd-favourites for a reason, and I want people of all genders to experience their rumbly goodness.

There are already some amazing vibrators for men, but I also think that a little creativity goes a long way when it comes to our sex toys.

Men, this one's for you.

Lovehoney Ignite 20 Function Mini Male Vibrator

1. The Vibrating Masturbator

Very little creativity needed here, guys. Apply some water-based lube and hold this masturbator on the head of the penis – the vibrations should send you to the stars.

I prefer non-anatomical toys because I think they’re less-intimidating for beginners, and if you want to introduce a toy to a partner.

So, I think this one’s brilliant and completely no-fuss, especially as it's rechargeable and waterproof for shower/bath fun and easy cleaning.

Lovehoney Open Invite Clear Rechargeable Vibrating Male Stroker

2. The Vibrating Stroker

Much like the masturbator, this fuss-free stroker is rechargeable, waterproof and with an optional bullet vibe, it is absolutely delightful.

Apply a generous helping of water-based lube and slide your penis into the ribbed, velvety-soft interior. You can use this stroker to enhance masturbation, oral sex and hand jobs.

With 3 speeds and 6 patterns, this open-ended toy is plenty of fun.

Lovehoney Bed Ringer Rechargeable Double Cock Ring

3. The Vibrating Cock Ring

Vibrating cock rings are typically used to pleasure two partners during penetrative sex, but have you ever thought about one with two rings so the vibrating part sits against your balls?

The cock ring will stimulate the penis by providing a strong grip at the base, while the vibrations double the sensation in a spots where you may never have ventured with a vibe.

Try it out with some water-based lube and experience the 12 different settings of rumbly fun.

Lovehoney Ripple Rider Rechargeable Vibrating Prostate Massager

4. The Vibrating Prostate Massager

This beautifully shaped silicone toy is made to penetrate the anus and stimulate the prostate. You can spot butt-fun-friendly toys by their flared base. The base is also long enough that it can stimulate the perineum, too!

What I adore about this toy is that the vibrations actually come from a bullet vibrator that slips inside the toy. If you like, you can remove the vibrator from the toy and use the massager as a non-vibrating toy, and the bullet externally, elsewhere on your body!

You’ll need a good amount of water-based lube to play with this one, so make sure you’ve got some stocked up.

Lovehoney Deluxe Extra Powerful Magic Wand Vibrator

5. The Massage Wand

Now, let’s get creative. Who’s to say a classic vibe like the massage wand is solely to use on the clitoris? Heck, people use these as back massagers!

We have erogenous zones all over our body including our inner arms, nipples, lower abdomen, lower back and inner thighs – as well as all the obvious spots that you're probably already familiar with.

Before venturing with a vibrator, run your hands softly across these areas to see if you like the way it feels. A vibrator will add a whole heap of sensation to your play. You can run the head of the wand up and down the shaft, press it on or near the balls, on the anus or any of the other erogenous zones I mentioned!
