I read an article this weekend reviewing male masturbatory sleeves – sex toys for men that give you a masturbation assist. While intriguing, I will admit that I have never tried one. As a matter of fact, I have tried virtually no men’s sex toys – cock rings, masturbation sleeves, ass plug.. nothing.
Is there a strange double standard going on? As anyone who reads my blog knows, I am a big, big fan of sex toys. My wife and I have a pretty wide range and she (and we) enjoy them immensely. We’ve certainly discussed trying out men’s sex toys.. we even bought a cock rings once. But we have yet to even take it out of it packaging.
Why? Some of it is practical. While a masturbation sleeve sounds kind of interesting, my hand works really well and the sleeves seem kind of big and conspicuous. Cock rings.. I’m not sure I fully understand what they will do.. I maintain an erection quite well and I’m a won’t it squeeze/hurt a little… anyway I simply don’t see the upside but would love to be convinced there is one. And ass plugs.. my wife and I simply don’t do ass play; I am intrigued by it and may find a way to indulge a bit, but for now its not a thing for us.
So… no male sex toys. But, I good friend just gave me a gift card for an online sex shop. I’m thinking it may be time to take the plunge.
