So, what are the best sex toys for gay boys? Straight men are using sex toys now more than ever and it’s all thanks to gay people. Allow me to explain.
The queer love affair with sex toys began during the sexual liberation movement of the late ‘60s and ‘70s. Since stigma around queer sexuality was so prevalent at the time, gay men felt freer to experiment as they were less tied to heteronormative guidelines. At the time, most of the straights – especially men – were prudes. Go figure.
Because sex toys were so popular with the queer demographic, corporations were smart, designing and marketing products toward gay men. This initial influence would ultimately shape the male sex toy market as we see it today. It is argued because of this fact, stigmas remain attached to heterosexual men using sex toys, hinging on homophobia and misguided beliefs.
To acknowledge our influence on the sex toy industry, I’ve recommended my favorite sex toys just in time for the holidays. As someone who’s written about the subject for nearly a decade, I’ve been shipped almost every toy known to man, so I like to think I know what I’m talking about. But before we get to that, it’s important to note that prior to using any sex toy that touches the genitals, a lubricant should always be applied.
Lelo LOKI Wave
As a long-time user of prostate massagers, no brand has consistently impressed me as much as LELO. Of their sizeable offering, most of which get an enthusiastic thumbs-up, the LOKI Wave takes top honors. Great for solo play, I found this toy can also be wonderful for tops during intercourse, who can insert the toy (and will remain in place), culminating in an intense orgasm courtesy of its simultaneous internal and external stimulation. LELO insists it is the first prostate vibrator to offer a “come-hither” motion and its sensation is second to none. Let those toes curl!
The Shibari Lube Injector
A wonderful accomplice to your favorite RIDE lubricants, every bottom knows (and every top should know) that lube on the exterior of your anus isn’t enough to offer comfort for penetration. You need lubricant nice and deep for a slick and satisfying glide. A finger can only reach so far and the Shibari Lube Applicator allows for easy, targeted application for penises of all sizes. Because this is your bum, be gentle when inserting and removing – we want no discomfort prior to penetration. Trust, every bottom worth his weight in douche water needs this practical and affordable toy in his nightstand.
Studio Ready Hot Coffee Scrub
Some gays have no qualms eating ass in any state, but for everybody else, there is Studio Ready’s Hot Coffee Scrub. This smart, very gay scrub (applied pre-rimming, obviously) in no way irritates the anus and makes your bum taste like dessert. The handcrafted serum contains cane sugars and natural oils specifically designed to revive and stimulate the derrière for a younger, fresher, more moisturized appearance. This truly innovative product brings new meaning to “serving cake”.
Lynk Pleasure Products Cock Ring 3 Pack
The duty of cock rings is simple: they restrict blood flow to the penis to create harder and larger erections. When placed around the testicles, they can also prolong and delay ejaculation. That’s why I recommend a simple, quality cock ring like Lynk Pleasure Products Cock Ring 3 Pack. Made from medical-grade silicone, this set of three cock rings is soft, pliable and will never break. Cock rings come with so many bells and whistles these days, but most are completely unnecessary – unless you have a clitoris.
Tom of Finland Screw U II Magnetic Nipple Clamps
If you, like me, love having your nipples played with, few products are more effective than Tom of Finland’s unique and sexy offering. Best suited for more experienced users, the clamps tightly pinch nipples via super-powerful magnetic points that hold secure through flicking, tugging, and all those other fun things we do with our chesticles. Best applied to erect nipples, the clamps look like screw-shaped nipple piercings, making you a sexy Tom of Finland fantasy come to life. They hurt so good.
Pocket Pulse Guybrator Stroker
This may come as a surprise, but I hate masturbation sleeves. I find them bulky, obstructive, and unnecessary. Ninety percent of the time I’m asked to review one I’m reminded that my hand can do a far better job. But because not everybody shares this preference, I would recommend the Pocket Pulse Guybrator Stroker. It’s small, fits in the palm of your hand and, best of all, works with your grip to enhance the masturbatory experience instead of replacing your hand, which I consider nature’s best pleasure-provider. Don’t @ me.
