Male Masturbator Specs

Automatic HandsFree Male MasturbatorMale masturbators provide stimulation for the male penis through at least one tunnel for penile insertion. The purpose is to help in manual ejaculation by offering realistic textures in the form of handheld sleeves, full-figured body replicas, blow-up dolls, and vacuum pumps. They can be anatomically correct to simulate oral, anal, or vaginal sex or crafted to offer a better-than-sex experience. The use of vibrating bullets or hard beads can provide more stimulation. Some masturbators will have a closed end that provide greater suction but makes cleaning a bit more difficult, an open end allows for easy cleaning.

Benefits are seen more in the practice of male masturbation more so than the actual product. Regular ejaculation can be medically beneficial, the use of male masturbators simply make this process more comfortable and enjoyable in the absence of a partner.

Male masturbation can help fight

:
  • Depression
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Premature Ejaculation
  • Cardiovascular Disorders

Materials can include:

  • Jelly PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) - Soft and flexible material for a more realistic feeling that moves with your body. PVC Jelly is body-safe, contains phthalates, latex, slightly rubbery odor and a bitter taste.
  • Rubber TPR/TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer/Rubber) - Ideal for those with sensitive skin and comes in a wide variety of textures and hardness. ABS Plastic is body-safe, phthalate-free, latex free, odorless and tasteless.
  • Realistic Materials - These are registered or trademarked materials that have been created to provide a life-like feeling. Some of the most common are Better-Than-Real, CyberSkin, Futurotic, PassionSkin, PureSkin, SensaFirm, SoftTouch, SuperSkin, RealSkin, and UR3. These can be porous and hard to disinfect.
  • Silicone - A non-porous, smooth, flexible and durable material that is preferred for its clean makeup and soft touch. Silicone is body-safe, phthalate-free, latex free, odorless and tasteless.

Power Sources: for the vibrators are typically watch sized batteries. Recent models feature rechargeable vibrators that can include wall and USB chargers. Lower level models will normally be disposable and not offer a way to change batteries or recharge.

Pricing: can range from $5-$100 depending on features; the most common price is between $20-$40. A starter male masturbator will be a simple stretchy sleeve with little to no texture. The more common models will have ribbed tunnels and shaped opening. The more elaborate models will offer realistic materials, more discreet and practical appearances, and multiple opening for a variety of stimulation.

Lubrication & Care: is dependent on the materials used and if it’s waterproof. Most materials, except realistic and silicone, are compatible with all lubricants. Realistic and silicone toys should be used with water-based lubricants and with a condom for better cleaning. Warming lubricants help in making the experience more realistic. Non-waterproof vibrators should be lubricated and cleaned with attention to the seams around the controller to ensure that no liquids drip inside. We recommend always using a toy-safe anti-bacterial cleaner after use for healthy sex and a longer life for your sex toy. After thoroughly cleaning and drying your toys, store them individually in a clean container to prevent the materials from a chemical reaction to each other.

Penis Pumps Specs

Vacum Penis PumpPenis pumps are vacuum constriction devices that are used medically and recreationally to engorge the penis. They are a non-surgical, prescription-free option to treating ED (Erectile Dysfunction). Ranging in sizes to accommodate the fully engorged size of the penis, they are cylindrical in shape and are operated by a manual or motorized pump. The base of the pump will rest on the person’s body once the penis is fully inserted, creating a seal. Then the pumping mechanism pulls air out of the tube increasing the vacuum which increases the pressure within the penis’s blood vessels. These effects are temporary after removal of the pump, but can be extended with the placement of a cock ring prior to use.

Benefits are primarily medical, though vibrating pumps can also offer a sensation that makes penis pumps an alternative to manual masturbation. Those seeking further assistance with impotence beyond the use of a cock ring can use a penis pump to manipulate the pressure and blood flow in the penis. Prescription alternatives can be undesirable due to drug side effects, regular costs, and surgical risks. While overuse of pumps can cause damage, they are non-invasive and can be covered by Medicare.

  • Jelly PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) - Soft and flexible material for a more realistic feeling that moves with your body. PVC Jelly is body-safe, contains phthalates, contains latex, slightly rubbery odor and a bitter taste.

  • Plastic ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) - A smooth, rigid, and lightweight material that is preferred for its handling and ability to transfer strong vibrations. ABS Plastic is body-safe, phthalate-free, latex free, odorless and tasteless.

Power Sources: for the vibrators or motorized pumps can include watch sized batteries,“AAA,” “AA,” or are rechargeable. Most models will be manually operated.

Pricing: can range from $20-$300 depending on features; the most common price is between $20-$60. A starter pump will have a basic tube with a hand pump and quick release valve. More elaborate models will feature a padded lining around the open base of the tube, alternative tube sizes, pressure gauges, comfort grips, padded sleeves lining the interior of the tube, or vibrators.

Lubrication & Care: is dependent on the materials used and if it’s waterproof. Most materials, except realistic and silicone, are compatible with all lubricants. If your pump has realistic or silicone padding, they should be used with water-based lubricant. Warming lubricants help in making the experience more realistic. Non-waterproof vibrators should be lubricated and cleaned with attention to the seams around the controller to ensure that no liquids drip inside. We recommend always using a toy-safe anti-bacterial cleaner after use for healthy sex and a longer life for your sex toy. After thoroughly cleaning and drying your pump, store it in a clean container where it won’t be damaged and possibly cracked. The most important feature in any pump is the ability to keep suction and compromising the material could cause a weaker vacuum.
