Masturbation With No Strings Attached

By | March 21, 2018

Being in the job that I am it’ll come as no surprise to you that I’ve given a lot of thought to what tops the list of male masturbators in terms of pleasure-giving ability. With the advent of mechanised, robotic masturbators the question can be even more specific, by which I mean what are the best hands free male masturbators, or what’s the best virtual vagina.

Concurrently you have to ask “What does best mean?”. To do that I contend that you have to return to basics and remember what masturbation is about in the first place.

The ultimate aim is of course is pleasure – not necessarily orgasm but pleasure. For most people most of the time masturbation is about achieving orgasm but whether you reach orgasm or not stimulation and pleasurable sensations are the key.

If you, yourself are masturbating, and I speak here from a male perspective of masturbating (jerking off or wanking, whatever you prefer to call it) visual stimulation can be an effective aid. However without the right tactile stimulation it’s rare to reach orgasm just by looking at naughty pictures! As adolescents young guys learn how to stimulate themselves, their partners later in life usually do too, indeed masturbation as foreplay or to orgasm is one of the many aspects of a healthy sexual relationship.

Whereas auto-masturbation for want of a better phrase is often very straight forward the interplay with a partner can be much more exciting. This is probably why male masturbators are popular, giving as they do different sensations that are one step removed from the user’s own hand. Moreover a partner can use their hands, body, mouth or even a masturbator to give a greater variety of stimulation than a guy can on his own, to himself.

Consider a blow job. Unless your cock is incredible sensitive or you’re incredibly excited you’re unlikely to cum with just the stimulation of a mouth alone, no matter how skilful the mouth’s owner. If you’ve been engaged in sex for some time the penis becomes desensitised, aiding your ability to pleasure your partner for longer but meaning that if they chose to bring you off with their mouth it’s unlikely to happen. What’s more likely is that they’ll have to stimulate your penis, balls and maybe even anus/prostate with their hands.

Until recently finding a sex toy to do all this was impossible. Yes we’ve seen a few attempts in the past, some more successful than others. In fact some so ridiculous that we cringed as they were demonstrated to us because of their obvious ineffectiveness. Where the designers seemed to fall down a few years ago was either because their literal mechanical interpretation of wanking was never going to work or because they tried to combine it with the then immature tech of virtual reality. Keep it simple guys!

The biggest pitfall that early sex toy designers made, and this applies to all sex toys for men and women is this – It doesn’t have to look like the part of the body you’re aiming to replace. Yes there are a few sex toys that faithfully and very successfully replicate the sex organs. I can’t speak with authority on sex toys for women but in terms of ersatz vaginas I only every found one that felt like the real thing, and that was amazing. Yet it didn’t vibrate or offer anything other than a truly real sensation of penetrating then moving inside a woman. That said it wasn’t my favourite masturbator in terms of intensity of stimulation. A number of male masturbators with totally unrealistic internal contours and anonymous entrance holes have proven to be the most effective at arousing mean from a tactile perspective,

In summary therefore I’d have to say that the advice I’d give to anyone asking the question “what are the best hands free male masturbators?” is this – Look for a simple, easy to clean design that stimulates your penis’s shaft as well as sucks. Go for a sturdy design that shows the makers understand both how to build an effective sex toy and also how to give sensual please. Finally don’t necessarily look for something that actually looks like your hand or your partner’s mouth – more intense stimulation can come from good sex toy design.
