Vibrator Info for Men

Can men use vibrators?

Men can use vibrators in a lot of different ways, so the best vibrator for a man depends on what part of his anatomy he wants to stimulate and how. And thanks to the technology of miniature vibrators, it’s possible to put a vibrator just about anywhere you want it.

If a man wants to use the vibrator primarily on his penis and get a lot of direct stimulation on the head, the best choice is an electric or battery-powered vibrator that comes with a cup-shaped attachment. These are designed to surround the cock head and transmit the vibrations directly to the penis head or glans. For electric vibrators, such as the Hitachi Magic Wand, the attachment will need to be purchased separately. He can use this type of vibrator alone or in combination with manual stroking for masturbation.

If a man wants less direct stimulation, or wants to combine vibration with manual stimulation, oral sex, or intercourse, a vibrating cock ring (such as the Clearly Sensual) or vibrating pouch (such as the Adonis Pouch) is the way to go. These devices hold a small egg or bullet vibrator in place at the base of the penis or under the testes, stimulating the balls with vibration.

For prostate or P-spot stimulation, the most direct way to excite this spot by inserting a T-shaped vibrator into the anus that is angled toward the prostate. A vibrating butt plug or anal probe will also press against the prostate, especially if it is angled toward the penis.

For penile stimulation, the best is a standard vibrator with a cup attachment. For scrotal stimulation, the best is a vibrating cock ring or vibrator pouch.

What ways can a woman use a vibrator on a man?

A woman can use a vibrator to stimulate a man’s penis and balls, and if it’s an insertable vibrator, his prostate. The easiest way for a woman to use a vibrator on a man is simply to stroke his cock and balls with it. She can run the vibrator along the length of his shaft and around his cock head. The base of the glands and the underside of the penis head are particularly sensitive spots.

Another way to stimulate a male partner is to stroke his balls with the vibrator or to hold it directly under the scrotum. Pressing the vibrator against the perineum (the spot of skin between the balls and the bum) can also be very pleasurable. If you press into this spot, the vibrations will also transmit to the prostate.

If the vibrator is an insertable dildo or probe, it can be inserted in the man’s anus to stimulate his prostate directly. To hit the prostate, insert the vibrator two to three inches into the anus and aim the tip toward the penis. Make small in and out stroking motions with the vibrator rubbing against the prostate. Prostate stimulation combined with vibration can produce very intense male orgasms and sometimes increased ejaculation. Whenever inserting anything anally, use a lot of lube, go slow, and don’t force it. Also, only use toys for anal insertion that have a flange or flared base, or something at the end to keep them from going too far in. If you insert a vibrator without a base too far into your partner’s rear and lose your grip on it, you may not be able to get it out.

If a woman uses her own vibrator on a man, she should take certain hygiene and safe sex precautions. Using a vibrator on a partner and then using it on yourself without cleaning it first is the equivalent of having unprotected sex. If you get a man’s pre-ejaculate or semen on your vibrator and insert it in your vagina, you run the risk of pregnancy or getting an STD. If you use a vibrator on a partner’s rear, you need to clean it thoroughly before using it on your vagina or inserting it vaginally to avoid the risk of a yeast or bacterial infection.

But I’m not gay. Aren’t gay men the only ones who enjoy anal stimulation?

Nope. Straight women, gay women, straight men, it doesn’t matter what your orientation is, we all have a tremendous number of nerve endings in and around our anus. Social stigmas aside, it’s quite normal to enjoy play in this area because it’s so sensitive. Starting slow, communicating with your partner, and using lots of lube are the keys to enjoying anal play. Gender preference has nothing to do with it.

Is it safe to use a vibrator on a man’s testicles (balls)?

Occasional mild vibration of the testes should not damage the testes or affect their function. An Austrian study found links between mountain biking in men and decreased fertility and testicular abnormalities. The connection was the strong and repeated shocks to the scrotum and perineum (the area between the balls and ass) that the men were subjected to while biking. However, compared to the bone-shaking vibrations of bouncing down a rocky trail or jumping stumps with a bike post planted in your crotch, the minor tremors supplied by a typical vibrator are quite gentle and non-traumatic. Overuse of a vibrator on the testicles is not advisable, but the occasional buzz on the balls shouldn’t do any harm.

Are cock rings for you? What are vibrating cock rings?

Cock rings fit at the base of the penis or go around both the penis and testicles. They prolong erection by restricting the flow of blood out of the penis; once the cock becomes engorged with blood, the blood leaves more slowly, making the penis harder for longer. Many men use cock rings to enhance their erections during masturbation or intercourse.

With the addition of a small vibrator, a cock ring can also stimulate the wearer along with his partner. Most vibrating cock rings are made of a stretchy material, usually jelly rubber or silicone, and have a small egg or bullet vibrator attached or embedded in them. The vibrator is sometimes positioned vertically, sometime horizontally. In either case, the cock ring’s vibrator can be used to stimulate a female partner’s clit by wearing it on the top side of the cock. When the cock is fully inserted, the vibrator should touch against the clitoris. The cock ring’s vibrator can also be positioned to stimulate the partner’s perineum during anal intercourse.

Most vibrating cock rings can also be worn so they stimulate the testicles. If the ring is large or stretchy enough, the flaccid cock and balls can be pulled through it so it encircles the base of the cock and the testes. The vibrator can be positioned directly beneath the balls. With a smaller cock ring or one that has a vertically mounted vibrator, the ring can be worn with the vibrator pointing downward and pressed into the balls.

Tell me about vibrating penis pumps

Penis pumps use a vacuum tube around the penis to force blood into the member, thereby making it longer, harder, and bigger than it normally is in its erect state. Though it hasn’t been proved, there are those who claim that prolonged use of pumps can permanently increase penile length by stretching the ligaments in the penis. Nevertheless, penis pumps do provide at least temporary erection enhancement, and many men find the suction provided by the pumps to be very stimulating, sort of like a mega blow job. A vibrator in the pump can increase the level of stimulation. Usually the vibrators in penis pumps are small bullet or egg vibrators located at the base of the shaft, but some have vibrators placed at the top of the tube. If you’re pumping to achieve size and length a vibrator in your penis pump isn’t going to make any difference. But if you’re using it as a masturbation toy, a vibrator can turn your pump job into a hummer.

Tell me about vibrating butt plugs

A vibrating butt plug is pretty much what it sounds like. It’s a butt plug that has a vibrator inside it. The vibrator may be built into the plug, or it may fit into the base of the toy and be removable. Removable vibrators are preferred by some because of their ease of use and versatility.

Butt plugs are sex toys that are used to enhance sex or masturbation by providing a sense of stimulation and fullness in the rectum. They are a few inches long, tapered at the tip for easy insertion, widen in the middle or near the base, and then become narrow again. This flared shape holds them in place just inside the anal sphincter. Adding vibration increases the stimulation provided by a butt plug. Some vibrating butt plugs have other capabilities as well, such as inflating or ejaculating. Using a vibrating butt plug is preferable to inserting a dildo-like vibrator into your anus because there is no chance that the plug will slip in too far and get stuck inside your rectum.

If you’re trying a vibrating butt plug and haven’t used a butt plug before, give the plug a test run without using the vibration. This will give you a chance to get used to the sensation of having it in your rear. Remember that the anus and rectum are very rich in nerve endings, so every sensation in this region is greatly magnified.

If you have a regular butt plug and you want to simulate the effect of a vibrating butt plug, you can just insert the plug and press a vibrator against the base. The plug will transmit the vibrations, although it may not be as intense as having the vibrator actually inside the anus.

How do I use a vibrator to give myself an orgasm?

Relax, start slow, and get to know your vibrator and your body. Touch the vibrator to different parts of your genitals. Discover what feels good, then keep doing it. Let your arousal build and let nature take its course.

There really isn’t any “right” way to use a vibrator or to bring yourself to orgasm. The most important thing to remember is that a vibrator is a tool to help you stimulate yourself; while it can help you reach a climax, it’s not an instant orgasm machine. You control it and use it in the way that feels best to you.

To have the best experience with your vibrator, give yourself some time with it. Before you even switch it on, get relaxed and turned on. Take a bath, read an erotic story, get yourself in the mood. For most women, orgasms are as much psychological as they are physiological. If your mind isn’t in the right place, your body won’t be, either.

Experiment with your vibrator, try its different features, and apply it to different areas of your body to see what the sensations are like. Most women respond to clitoral stimulation, but you may prefer more or less intensity, or more or less direct stimulation. The labia and vulva are also sensitive.

If your vibrator is insertable, give that a try. Some women find penetration and vibration inside the vagina very pleasurable. A vibrator is the best tool you can use to find and stimulate your G-spot. This little node of pleasure is on the front wall of your vagina, a couple of inches in. It can take a few tries to find this spot, and not everyone who finds it actually likes it because of how sensitive it can be. Some women can’t find it at all. All of these things are normal, so you just have to see what works for you.

Many women need clitoral rather than vaginal stimulation to actually bring them to orgasm, so if vaginal penetration with your vibrator isn’t getting you off, go back to using the vibrator on your clit. One technique you can use with a smooth insertable vibrator is to place the tip against your clit, then slide the shaft down between your labia, insert the vibrator and slide it into your vagina, and then bring it back up in a reverse stroke, sliding along the clit again on the way up.

If you’re a man trying a vibrator, stroke it along the shaft of your penis and hold it against your glans (the head of your cock). If this is too intense, try placing the vibrator at the base of your balls or pressing it against your perineum (the skin between your balls and butt).

Once you discover what feels good, keep doing it, relax, and let your arousal build. If you find that the vibrator brings you to the point of climaxing too quickly, back off and try a less intense form of stimulation, or even use your hand for a while and go back to the vibrator. After you climax, take a break and go for round two, using the vibrator at a lower intensity if you’re sensitive. Just because a vibrator can get you off quickly doesn’t mean you have to rush yourself.
