First Impressions of Top Male Masturbation Toys

November is increasingly identified with Movember, the men’s health fundraiser where men grow mustaches through the entire month. In fact, Movember is the biggest men’s health charity.

True story: Having a wank is great for your health. A 2003 Australian study found that men who jerk off more than five times in a week reduced their risk of prostate cancer by one third. What’s more, contrary to what many men believe, masturbation decreases your risk of erectile dysfunction, as well as making it easier for you to stay hard longer. There are other benefits, like a boosted immune system and elevated mood.

But are you still pulling pud the old fashioned way? You shouldn’t be. Male masturbation devices are cheaper — and more effective — than ever. Here’s a roundup of some of the latest and greatest in the world of men’s jackoff toys.

VibeRite Personal Massager $44.95 ON SALE: $29.95
The VibeRite Personal Massager is a lot like the famous Hitachi Magic Wand, except it’s lighter and does not need to be plugged in for you to use it. It has seven speeds and a soft silicone head with a bendable neck.

The great thing about this is that it’s a toy that a man and a woman can use. It doesn’t require an attachment for a penis, but the Hammerhead isn’t a bad investment if you have VibeRite. This is a multi-textured attachment made out of super stretchy TPR which mean it will fit men of just about any size.

VibeRite Hammerhead Male Attachment $14.50 ON SALE: $9.50
This one wasn’t a favorite of mine for personal use, but it was great to use with my wife. The Hammerhead comes on and off very easily, making it simple to switch between me using it and her using it.
Tenga Flip Hole Masturbator $99.00
The Tenga Flip Hole Masturbator has everything that you’re going to need from a male masturbator: It’s multi-textured, has buttons on the outside that allow you to apply vacuum pressure to different areas of the penis. You get three different kinds of lube with it and it opens to let you easily apply lube, as well as clean the Tenga.

I found that this one is good for those special occasions when you have enough time to yourself to turn the lights down low, light some candles and really spend some time getting down to business. I didn’t like it as much for a quick wank, but it did beat just about everything else in the “long and slow” department.

Oxballs Cocksling $24.00
What’s better than a wank? A wank with a cock ring. The Oxballs Cocksling is their best selling product and, hands down, one of the best cock rings I have ever used… and I am definitely a man who knows his cock rings. The Oxballs Cocksling has a cock ring and a ball stretcher all in one. It’s incredibly soft and stretchy, made of TPR, and warms to your body the longer that you wear it. It’s also made right here in the USA. Wear it when you’re jerking or wear it when you’re fucking. It’s great either way!

This is definitely on the short “if you only have one cock ring, you need this one” list. It does everything that you need a cock ring to do.

Fat Boy Cock Sheath $44.95-$49.95
This is another one that can be just as fun to use with other people as you do yourself. It’s not just a masturbation device, it’s also a cock enlarger and extender. Made from super soft Silaskin, a blend of TPR and silicone, it’s 7” in total length, stretches easily and will fit on just about any man.

I didn’t care for this one. It felt weird to handle in my hand as a masturbation device, and my wife wasn’t going to let it anywhere near her vagina.

Support Men’s Health & Celebrate With Us!

Just here for the party? Here’s the Party Info.

What is Movember?

We care about your health, and this year we’re showing it by raising money and awareness in support of Movember, an annual charity event whose proceeds benefit research into the prevention and cure of testicular and prostate cancer, and other men’s health concerns. Participants grow mustaches throughout November to help make people aware of health issues unique to men.

Movember was started 10 years ago in Melbourne, Australia and has quickly grown into a global charity benefiting The LiveStrong Foundation, The Prostate Cancer Foundation, and many others – and involves millions of us who want to get involved and make a difference.

Everyone who donates to or participates in Movember has his or her own motivation. Our Director of Operations, Shawn Gentry, has been kind enough to share his:

“I lost my father three years ago to poor health. He was always very athletic and outdoorsy but, I fear that later in life, my dad fell into depression that led to him fall into poor health which ended his life far too soon. I will never stop wondering if there is anything I could have done to help that would have kept him here a little longer to get to know my daughter and watch her grow up into the beautiful little girl she is today – maybe even getting to see her graduate from high school, college, or beyond. But I’ll never know.

“So, I decided to be a healthier, fitter me and vowed to start eating healthier and less, getting regular exercise, drinking more water – and just taking better care of myself, as well as doing the regular maintenance of getting regular checkups, prostate exams, and spreading awareness whenever I have the chance. This will be my 4th year participating in Movember.

“Part of our mission at The Stockroom is to promote the ideal that making fetish and kink a part of your lifestyle can lead to a healthier, happier you. So, we plan to share tips and recommendations throughout the month of November to show you how.”

How you can help:

FIRST – go to our team page and join our Movember Team, or pledge your support as a Mo Bro or a Mo Sista!

NEXT – if you’re in LA, come to our Launch Party, November 1st immediately next door to our amazing and infamous Stockroom/Syren Fetish Boutique located in the chic SilverLake neighborhood of Los Angeles. (Full details below)

Let’s change the face of men’s health together, and have a lot of fun at the same time :)

The items included in these live model demos run the full range of nipple play options, including suction, c-clamps, full breast and nipple vise clamps, and extreme clamps.

Get yours now:

KinkLab T-Cups Nipple Suction Set $24.50
Stick them to your skin and turn the handle to the left to create a vigorous vacuum, perfect for teasing and pleasing, fore, during, or after-play!

Get yours now:

Nipple Press w/ Chain $33.00
Each clamp attaches with finely threaded screws that allow unlimited variation in the size and pinch pressure of each, while the 12-inch gunmetal curb chain connecting them swings to subtly alter and intensify the sensation.

Twin wing screws at either end of the set of parallel bars lock the nipples in place with as much pressure as you desire, while the chrome-plated chain keeps the contraption confined to the neck of the wearer.

Extreme Talon Nipple Clamps $28.00-$32.00
Not for the faint of heart, the Extreme Talon Nipple Clamps are not just a clever name – they take tit-torment to a whole new level. These particularly fine, needle-tipped clamps take nipple stimulation to the extreme with claws that latch perfectly around the nipple once attached, and stay there.

Kinky Costume Ideas #5: The Latex Mummy

Mummification fetishists enjoy the feeling of being tightly bound, restrained, and deprived of sensory input. Very few of them are actually the shambling corpses of cursed pharohs of old. We celebrate all walks of life (and un-life) here at The Stockroom.

Long ago in the steamy sex dungeons of ancient Egypt, a perverted priest placed an ancient and terrible fetish curse upon an unsuspecting pleasure slave. This Halloween, foolish archeologists broke the seal, unearthing the horror of…

The Latex Mummy

Get the gear – Become…The Latex Mummy!

Latex Bondage Strips $12.50-$52.00

Locking/Buckling White Wrist Cuffs $35.00
These cuffs will fit wrists measuring 5½” to 8″ around. A heavy-gauge D-ring provides a point of attachment. Locks can be added to the buckles for extra security, but are not necessary.

Pony Problems: A Stockroom Story

Our resident ponygirl, Biscuit, made this video to raise awareness of human ponies and the problems they face in the workplace.

Celebrate International Fisting Day With Us!

Happy International Fisting Day!

Like we needed an excuse for celebrating fisting, but it does give some opportunities for a little fist-related fun (and education)!

International Fisting Day was created by Courtney Trouble and Jiz Lee in 2011 to bring a sex positive awareness to dispel the negative attitudes surrounding this sex act after Courtney was forced to edit out fisting scenes from her movies so they could be sold through distributors and stores.

In support of their efforts, we’re giving away a $50 Gift Certificate in our Fisting Day Instagram Contest (click that for all of the details, but it’s pretty easy and mainly just involves posting a pic of your fist!). Hurry contest ends at 11:59 PDT tonight!
