The global pandemic has been devastating for social interactions and doing basic things such as dating, meeting new people, and… getting laid.
Since bringing a one-night-stand to your home can quite literally be a health hazard, it doesn’t come as a surprise that people have been feeling lonely and in desperate need of a distraction from what’s happening in the world.
This is why numbers show that sex toy sales have surged during these times, which tells us that people have found something that brings them a little bit of joy and pleasure even when everything else seems gray.
Therefore, if you are a lonely man and have been edging towards sex toys but not quite knowing where to start, this is an article for you.
Below, I’ve made a selection of the seven best toys for lonely men. Hopefully, my suggestions will bring some excitement and a lot of pleasure to your life.
Here’s what I have for you:
(Realistic) Sex Dolls
A sex doll can be a beneficial element in your life, especially if you are single and lonely.
It is a known scientific fact that being sexually active decreases the risk of developing physical health problems such as high blood pressure, a weakened immune system, lack of sleep, migraines, etc.
Being sexually active also makes you a happier and better person overall as a complete (opposite to sexual frustration), which leaves you stressed, miserable, and in need to take the frustration out on something or someone.
But besides the sexual element of owning a sex doll for pure physical pleasure, these realistic beauties can actually make you feel less lonely.
Many sex doll owners have reported that they spend a long time out of their day talking to their sex doll and taking care of her, which gives them non-sexual pleasure.
Sex doll owners enjoy dedicating their time to their sex doll, and they come up with much fun stuff to do, including doing photoshoots, changing the doll’s hair, doing her makeup, dressing her up, etc.
Modern sex dolls look and feel incredibly realistic as they are carefully molded by professionals who are using high-quality materials to make sex dolls virtually indistinguishable from a real woman.
Modern sex dolls are also very durable, and with the proper care and maintenance, they can last you for up to ten-fifteen years.
However, there is also one important thing you need to pay attention to when investing in a modern sex doll, and that is to always look for reputable manufacturers instead of wasting your time searching through questionable websites that sell cheap dolls.
Since high-quality sex dolls are quite an investment that can cost you hundreds of dollars, you want to make sure you are buying an item that will last you for a long time.
A pocket pussy is exactly what it sounds like – a vagina that you can use anywhere, anytime.
Pocket Pussies are usually shaped like a round tube and come in a variety of lengths and styles.
The inside of the tube is completely made out of a soft, spongy material called a sleeve, and this is where the excitement occurs.
Basically, the sleeves usually have various textures, and while some are completely smooth, others have ridges, bumps, twists, and nodules to increase the stimulating sensation.
There are so many options to choose from, so if you don’t know where to start, here is a list ranking the best pocket pussies.
Penis strokers are basically masturbation sleeves that you use to stroke your penis with instead of your hand.
These sex toys are excellent masturbation aids because they are designed with internal lumps, bumps, and textures to offer intense stimulation.
There are various styles of penis strokers, including strokers with suction, open-ended sleeves, and vibrating strokers.
Penis strokers are probably the most common sex toy for men you’ll find; however, they are not all that versatile like some other sex toys.
Therefore, to enhance your pleasure, it is best to pair up a standard penis stroker with another form of stimulation, for example, anal toys or cock rings.
(Vibrating) Cock Rings
Cock rings are worn around the base of the penis and sometimes the testicles to make erections harder, bigger, and longer-lasting.
They come in different materials, from flexible silicone and rubber (which are the ideal beginner options) to leather and metal (which are more suitable for experienced users).
Cock rings are easy to use and don’t require much maintenance, which makes them the perfect toy for beginners or for someone who doesn’t want to be bothered with complicated gadgets.
Cock rings can also have a vibrating motor installed inside the base, and they offer an even more thrilling experience than regular, non-vibrating options.
These are also great for prolonging erections but can also enhance sensation and make masturbation more pleasurable.
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located below the seminal vesicle and just above the start of the urethra.
This gland, although small, is a bundle of nerves responsible for giving men unforgettable orgasms that are significantly more intense than the usual penile orgasms and are felt throughout the entire body.
It can be stimulated by using different techniques with your fingers; however, it is one of those things that are best stimulated with a suitable toy.
This is where a prostate massager comes in.
Prostate massagers are special toys that aren’t versatile and are intended to do one job – stimulate your prostate. They are usually thin and long to ensure comfort and pleasure and are also very suitable for beginners.
In fact, trying to stimulate your prostate with your fingers can lead to greater discomfort if your nails are even slightly chipped or you are in an uncomfortable position.
This is why I would definitely recommend you opt for a toy, especially if this is something you’ve never tried before.
Butt plugs are definitely an interesting little devil that can make one hell of a difference in your masturbation sessions.
They can be used solo to enhance the sensation or can be paired up with other toys, including a sex doll, pocket pussy, cock rings, etc.
Butt plugs come in various shapes, sizes, and materials, but the most popular ones tend to be stainless steel or glass butt plugs because they are most suitable for beginners.
Beginners usually need a more slippery lube to relax and ease the toy into the anal opening, which is why silicone-based lubes are more preferred for butt play.
However, silicone lubes can be detrimental to silicone sex toys as they can contribute to the deterioration of the material.
This is why you can’t go wrong with a small, beginner-friendly, stainless steel or glass butt plug.
However, if you want variety and a break from the usual, there are also vibrating butt plugs that can be controlled via an app for fully customized pleasure.
Anal beads are a sex toy that will help get you used to anal stimulation.
Typically, they are designed as a series of graduated, conjoined spherical beads with a flared loop or handle at the end so that you don’t lose them up there.
Anal beads can be slowly inserted into the anus to stimulate your internal erogenous zones such as the prostate and give you that gradual “filling” feeling many people find pleasurable.
Besides that, the slim neck between each bead creates a ‘popping’ sensation as they’re inserted and removed, which is also something anal beads users enjoy.
Anal beads are also very easy to use since they are basically designed for beginners, even though they look kind of intimidating.
All you have to do is lube them up with adequate lube for the material you are using, find a comfortable position, and start experimenting with what feels good for you.
