    i was thinking about the design of male masturbators and their style/appearance!

    what are peoples thoughts on the materials used, colours, shape and basically every aspect of the design?

    personally i don't give a toss (lolz) about the way it looks on the outside, i'm more interested in what it would be doing on the inside!

    i would appreciate your thoughts on this one guys...

    I don't like any toys that look realistic (although I know a lot of people do) so I don't like pussy shaped male toys or cock shaped toys.

    On male toys I like quite modern looks that are more square-ish rather than the curvy-ness I like in female toys.

    The Tenga Black is a bit ugly to me (clear jelly on black material) but the white one looks fab. Something that looks practical might be less threatening - I think that's what's nice about the Tenga, that way you can cater for couples who aren't quite as kinky/confident as some of us lot as well as single men who might be embarrassed about having a male sex toy, as well as all the kinkier lot that realise how wonderful and sexy toys can be.

    Material - I like the soft touch jelly on the Tenga and the Fleshlights are a nice material but I think WandA gets wound up at having to put cornflour on the Fleshlight.

    Colourwise - I don't like pink, blue is good, clear is good, black would work but as mentioned above consider combinations). Red might be a good one.

    Hope that's enough suggestions to start you off and the others (particularly the boys) might have lots of things to add.

    Ax

    tell WandA he is not alone with cornfour its a bit of bitch but there we go. sum of them look amazing for men but only own 1 flesh light and only really use that when the otherhalf is away or not up to it. and to honest would all ways prefer the warth of a woman to using a male sex toy.

    i like the idea of seeing through toys so clear is good. ive never had a male partner who uses toys, so i cant really comment upon textures.

    I don't like the 'realistic' ones. Because they never are... they usually look like someone has attempted to chew a swollen eyelid or a pork scratching. Or they are modelled on famous vulvas and look a little sore... speaking of sore I really don't understand these ones:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=14122

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=13045

    Ones that look like chilli sauce was the lube of choice shortly before moulding and picture taking.

    Fleshlights are somewhere in between, they pussyed out of looking like a pussy and went with a weird plastic pout instead.

    Mouths usually look odd and exaggerated.

    I prefer the sleek shapes and colours, the white tenga works well. Flesh or neon colours are bad. Plain colours are more likely to be bought as gifts too I imagine.

    Black can be ok...

    Some big no no's in my opinion:

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=17748 - Has a nose for some reason?

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=14371 - It looks like a weird sea creature...

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=15446 - Sun beds are bad for you...

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=10533 - NOOOOOO... AdnaW has just said 'It looks like a Bratz!'... So it does.... its just odd!

    As for materials... Well the fleshlight is a pain with the corn flour, the Tenga jelly is good!

    If more pops into my head I'll add them too!

    Would it be worth it or practical?

    To be enjoyable you need some lovely squishy bits! Unless you have some form of case I don't see where wood or metal fits in.

    yeah i'm thinking in terms of an exterior case like a fleshlight or tenga white/black!

    i'm not sold on the fleshlights cos i don't think the cases look very flashlight-like and just a bit plastic and crappy tbh lol!

    Hmmm... would it be a luxury toy then?

    I don't imagine there being a big market for that type of thing... In my opinion a lot of men value efficiency over aesthetics. Also men's toys aren't as inclusive as women's and are much more practical. It's easier to get a partner involved with a dildo than a great big box on your cock... Just my opinion.

    And fleshlights are too heavy as it is!

    I hope I'm not putting you off! It just seems very novel and maybe a great one off but I don't see a huge target audience.

    ahh no no this is all interesting stuff! i did wonder if weight was an issue for people cos they can be quite cumbersome!

    i'll rule out the one's made of lead, and marble then =P

    i have an idea for something that may or may not have been done yet that would possibly improve the weight issue with this kind of thing! lol vague much?

    imo

    there are 'realistic' and very NOT realistic at all vibrators for women, so there are preferences for both. I think it would be the same for men and their sex toys, some will always go for the realistic looking ones and some don't mind if it's just a silicone sleeve?

    I like the fleshlight girls ones as they look more real than the standard fleshlights I do own both off the tenga flips holes but I still prefer my fleshlights :D even if they can be a pain to dry.
