The 10 Best Male Vibrators that Aren’t Just Cock Rings
How we tested the best male vibrators
Do you ever go online shopping and look at the websites trying to sell you something and just think to yourself, “yeah, this sounds great, but I want to know the downsides too”? Well, it’s the same with sex toy websites! That’s why we want to provide you with something far more evenly balanced, presenting the highs and lows as we see them. We found hundreds of reviews across the internet that provide truthful feedback from your average user. Similarly, we allowed some of our expert team of sex toy testers to try out some of the male vibrators, so we also got their objective reviews too. We were then able to put together our very own comprehensive review that will hopefully shed some light on the best cock rings out there!
Types of male vibrator
A vibrator is a vibrator, right? Wrong! There are actually different types of male vibrators out there! See, you learned something new today! So let’s explore some of the male vibrator options you have available to you!
- Vibrating Masturbator – When we say masturbator, we’re talking things like fleshlights and other such toys that you can slide your cock into. Not only are they fun for manual stimulation, but they’re also great if you want your penis encompassing and firmly holding as you enjoy those magic vibrations!
- Vibrating Stroker – With this one you can ‘clip’ the vibrating stroker to your cock and either manually move it up and down as it vibrates or just hold it in position as you enjoy the sensations it provides. Try putting on different parts of your cock for different kinds of vibration sensations!
- Anal plug Vibrators – Anal plugs offer a nice full and stretched sensation. They also have the added bonus of being able to vibrate, stimulating one of the most erogenous zones on the male body!
- Prostate massager – Known as the male g-spot, the prostate holds the key to some serious pleasure. Prostate massagers make it super easy to find and stimulate the prostate, which can be found just a couple of inches the anus.
- Vibrating cock ring – Going around the base of your cock, or even behind the cock and balls, penis rings help you maintain stronger and firmer erections for longer. With a vibrating penis ring though, you get an extra pleasurable dimension! And not only that, but if worn during sex, your partner also gets to enjoy those vibrations too!
Buzzy vs rumbly vibrations
With male vibrators there’s not just one type of vibration, no, in fact there are two main kinds of vibrations. Buzzy and rumbly.
- Buzzy vibrations are more ‘high-pitched’ and intense, something similar to a bullet vibrator. Think those fast and small but powerfully pleasurable kinds of buzzy vibrations!
- Rumbly vibrations are the deeper, more powerful, and more intense kind of vibrations, as they penetrate deeper, pleasing you to the core!
You’ll find that there are two camps: rechargeable, and battery. Both have their upsides and downsides, so let’s take a look at the two kinds of power sources!
- Rechargeable – Rechargeable male vibrators have a built-in battery that can be charged by plugging it in and waiting a set amount of time for it to be fully charged. These types of toys tend to last longer when using, but you still have to wait a while if you have it plugged in, and you’re waiting for it to charge. Not ideal if you NEED the vibrator right there and then, but it’s not charged!
- Battery – Battery-powered male vibrators are perfect for more instant pleasure. Working just as well as rechargeable ones, you’ll find that all you have to do is grab some new batteries and replace them as soon as it dies. Here’s the thing though – they might not last as long between battery changes as a rechargeable vibrator does, meaning you’ll have to kill the mood and change batteries more often.
Ultimately the choice is yours, as both rechargeable and battery-powered male vibrators have their own specific pros and cons. Balance them up, figure out which is best for you, and make your decision!
What is a Male Vibrator?
Who said vibrators were only for women? Not us, that's for sure! That's just crazy talk! You see, a male vibrator is a type of vibrator designed to stimulate the penis, perineum, or prostate. Like female vibrators, they come in many different sizes and designs with varying levels of capability. No matter what kind of satisfying stimulation you want, there's a male vibrator that is designed to stimulate each and every part of your length!

The 10 Best male vibrators in Test
Fun Factory Manta Male Stroker
Whether you’re getting off alone or sharing the sheets with a partner, this male vibrator from Fun Factory is sure to push all the right buttons! Unlike many other masturbators, the manta doesn’t use the typical canal design, instead opting for a wrap-around design similar to a hand that grips your shaft. This means that cleanup is a breeze since you won’t need to worry about getting the toy super messy during use. Instead, just place the toy around your penis and enjoy the six speeds and six patterns this toy has to pleasure you to completion!
The design of this toy is very unique. As such, the individual user experience will also be unique, and this could be a good or a bad thing depending on your personal preferences. For some, the ribbed interior adds extra stimulation, but other people have found it to be rather unpleasant. The ribs also push the lube into your skin, meaning that you should expect to use a lot of lube when enjoying this toy. The bendable design means the Manta can accommodate thicker penises (within reason), but the lack of adjustability leaves a lot to be desired for those with thinner penises. We’d recommend measuring your penis and comparing it to the dimensions of the Manta before purchasing. If the size is off, stay away. If the size is right, prepare for a great night in!
Lovehoney Butt Tingler 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug
This male anal vibrator from Lovehoney is designed with beginners in mind. Combining the basic butt plug design with a compact bullet vibrator, this little toy allows you to cycle through two vibration speeds and three vibration patterns as you begin your journey into anal play. At five inches total length (3.5 of which are insertable) it’s big enough for you to feel it but not so large that it looks intimidating. Decided that vibrations aren’t for you? You can easily remove the battery-powered bullet vibrator for separate entertainment! Regardless of how you decide to use it, the t-base design of this little butt plug makes it comfortable for long-term use, and with a little bit of lube, this silicone plug will quickly become one of your go-to toys!
This butt plug is one of the hands free male vibrator toys that can be yours for less than $25! For that price, you get a silicone butt plug that can be used alone or with the included bullet vibrator, giving you a few more options than you would get with an all-in-one toy. That said, the bullet vibrator is somewhat limited when it comes to speeds and patterns, although you could always switch the vibe out for a better one later on. The plug itself is very well made, using high-quality silicone and a tapered tip with a t-bar base design for easy insertion and a comfortable fit. Unfortunately, the design limits this plug’s use during intercourse since it’s easy to accidentally hit the vibe button, and the t-bar may get in the way of vaginal entry if the wearer has a vagina. Still, this plug provides hours of entertainment at a low price point, so these minor setbacks are easy enough to overlook, especially for a complete beginner!
TENGA Flip Zero Rechargeable Vibrating Male Masturbator
Love using your favorite stroker but hate cleaning it after? TENGA has the perfect masturbator design for you! The Flip Zero EV is a male vibrator that opens up for simplified lubricant application, cleaning, and drying (there is a non-vibrating version as well). Enjoy the intense, unique internal textures as they stimulate your shaft with every thrust, and adjust the internal pressure as needed using the two pressure pads placed on either side of the toy. With two vibrating cores ready to go, you’ll have a better experience with this toy than you would with single-core toys, practically ensuring that you’ll be enjoying an explosive orgasm in no time!
The regular TENGA Flip Zero already made cleaning an easy process, and the EV model takes the whole experience to the next level with the addition of two strong motors! Our biggest complaint would be the price: are the vibration functions really worth over an extra $120? Ultimately, that determination is up to you, but if you do decide to purchase this toy, you surely won’t be disappointed. Not only does it have strong vibrations, but the Flip Zero EV also has pressure pads on the side (which allow you to get the right pressure in exactly the right spot) and a suction effect once you’re inside of the toy. Our only set-in-stone negative point is the leaking. Normally, you shouldn’t have an issue, but if you use a bit too much then this toy is sure to leak, so it might take a bit of experimentation to figure out how much lube is the right amount. Still, if you don’t mind the price tag, this is definitely a toy worth at least considering adding to your collection!
Lelo Loki Wave Prostate Massager
Lelo is probably a name you’ve heard of if you’ve ever shopped for a male prostate vibrator before. Best known for its unique “Come Hither” motion feature, the Loki Wave uses two powerful motors to provide dual stimulation to your prostate and perineum for body-shaking orgasm! Perhaps a bit intimidating at first glance, you nonetheless won’t have any trouble fitting this bad boy inside your bum once you’ve applied a bit of water-based lube. Four inches of curved shaft fit perfectly inside, directly targeting your prostate and providing orgasm after orgasm! Charging in only an hour and lasting for up to two, the Lelo Loki Wave is everything you need in a premium prostate massager.
The main drawback of this male vibrator for most people will be the price. However, you do get a premium product for that price, and the Lelo Loki Wave is sure to satisfy nearly any prostate play enthusiast! In addition to a variety of vibration functions that stimulate both your prostate and your perineum, the Loki Wave also has a “Come Hither” feature, a function that simulates manual internal stimulation for added realism. Made of high-quality silicone, the Wave is unfortunately only compatible with water-based lube, but this is fairly common amongst butt play toys. The toy can get a bit loud on its higher settings, but the lower settings should be quiet enough for use behind a closed door. If you already own a Lelo product then you should have a good idea of the pleasures you’re in for, but if not, come find out what you’ve been missing!
TENGA SVR Smart Vibe Ring
Unlike the other items on this list, direct penis stimulation isn’t what you’ll get from this male vibrator. While the vibrations pulsing through your shaft will certainly add to the overall experience, the main beneficiary of this item will be your partner: specifically, their clitoris! If you love missionary or cowgirl sex then your partner is sure to share in your passion, as the intense vibrations coming from this cock ring will quickly push them over the edge! Say goodbye to routine sex & hello to intense smashing sessions, complete with an erection that will stay hard throughout the entire ordeal thanks to this rechargeable vibrating cock ring from TENGA!
This male penis vibrator may be primarily focused on pleasuring your partner, but that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy it as well. For the average-sized penis, this cock ring will fit well, and if your shaft is a little bit thicker, the stretchy ring should easily accommodate the extra mass. However, since there isn’t any way to adjust the size of the ring, keeping this toy on might become an issue if your penis is on the thin side. In terms of value, this cock ring costs around $90: is that price worth your partner’s increased pleasure? We think it is!
Fun Factory Cobra Libre II Male Vibrator
Many male masturbation toys attempt to stimulate the penis as a whole. The Cobra Libre II, on the other hand, instead focuses its efforts specifically on the head of the penis, delivering targeted sensations and body-spasming orgasms! Completely waterproof and made from medical-grade silicone, this male vibrator is designed to fit comfortably over the head of the penis and allow the user to choose from various vibration settings for some self-serving stimulation. Thanks to its unique shape, it’s fairly easy to hold, meaning you can direct the vibrations exactly where you want them for some solo fun!
For some, the fact that this masturbator can’t stimulate the entire penis might be a downside. However, that’s not what the Cobra Libre II was designed to do: it’s only designed to stimulate the tip & head of the penis. In this regard, it does fairly well, although the vibrations themselves could be a bit more intense to meet the needs of some more advanced users. Still, the toy does give you a small variety of vibration options, is completely waterproof (which means it’s fairly easy to clean), and is constructed from medical-grade silicone for a body-safe experience. As an added bonus, this toy is extremely quiet, making it a good option for those who live with roommates and want to enjoy some private time “on the DL”.
Arcwave Ion Pleasure Air Smart Silence Male Masturbator
Have you been searching for a quality hands free male vibrator? The options are a bit limited, but you certainly can’t go wrong with the Arcwave Ion Pleasure Air Masturbator! Armed with “Smart Silence” technology, this toy will shut off the second you pull your penis out, making it perfect for people whose roommates tend to show up unannounced. Splitting into two pieces for a simplified cleaning process, you’re sure to enjoy hours of pleasure cycling through eight different levels of intensity that are sure to push you to the “big O”! Unlike many other toys, the Arcwave Ion specifically targets the frenulum, meaning the feeling you’ll get is unlike any other toy on the market today.
As a hands free male vibrator, the Arcwave Ion works great! That said, it does have a few big drawbacks that might prevent you from purchasing one. Although the “Smart Silence” feature will theoretically help you hide the fact that you’re masturbating, this toy is incredibly loud, which means that even though it turned off the second you pulled out, your roommates probably already knew what you were up to from the second they walked in the door. Those who prefer an all-encompassing stroker design will also be displeased, as the Ion only offers 3.5 inches of insertable length. However, if you’re purchasing this toy primarily for its stimulating effects (regardless of how it achieves them), then you surely won’t be disappointed! Specifically targeting the frenulum, this toy offers an orgasm unlike any other, is great for edging, and is easy to clean thanks to its two-piece design. Completely waterproof with a battery life of just over an hour, wait til your roommates leave and then go to town on yourself with the Arcwave Ion!
Fleshlight Vibro Pink Lady Touch Vibrating Male Masturbator
Fleshlight is a well-known brand, and for good reason: they put out some excellent products! If a regular run-of-the-mill Fleshlight isn’t enough for you, then perhaps this revamped version of the Pink Lady will do the trick. The Fleshlight Vibro Pink Lady expands upon the original stroker design with the addition of three removable bullet vibes, which can be used individually or all at the same time, allowing you to hone in on your preferred vibration intensity. Combined with the same old suction effect you know and love, this vibrating Fleshlight is sure to have you orgasming in no time!
The Vibro Pink Lady adds vibration to an already-great stroker setup, but the way that they’ve chosen to integrate the bullet vibes isn’t ideal. For starters, the only way to turn the vibes on or off is to take the sleeve out of the case, which makes adjusting the vibrations mid-session impossible. The vibes themselves use non-rechargeable batteries, which is an easy improvement we were disappointed they skipped. However, the rest of the stroker works as well as any other Fleshlight product and is sure to get the job done. The vibrations themselves don’t really offer enough for us to justify an extra $50 or so on the price tag. If you just want to have the option then the Vibro Pink Lady is a good choice, but if you’re buying it mainly for the vibrations we’d suggest picking up better bullet vibes to accompany your new toy.
THRUST Pro Elite Paige Remote Control Vibrating Masturbator
Weighing in at over 15 pounds, the THRUST Pro Elite Paige combines a male vibrator with a sex doll to create a single man’s best friend! Paige can provide you with hours of pleasure from either her 6-inch deep vagina or 5-inch deep anus, and you’ll swear she’s a real girl as you’re pounding away, wondering why it took you so long to grab this gal! Heavy enough to stay in place during use, you can go at it in any position you would like, enjoying the textured canals and lifelike feel of her “skin” (which only requires simple treatment with renewal powder to remain supple!). With one hand on the toy & the other holding the remote, you’ll be in complete control as you take the ride of your life with the Pro Elite Paige!
Offering the most realistic sexual experience of any of the toys on this list, it shouldn’t be surprising that the THRUST Pro Elite Paige costs a pretty penny. Still, at less than $300, she’s actually fairly cheap by sex doll standards and provides a great bang for your buck. The included bullet vibrator works well enough, but we think it’s more of a gimmick than the primary reason for why you’d buy this masturbator. Realism, size, and weight are the primary advantages of Paige, whereas the vibration option comes secondary. Still, the bullet vibe can be used separately and is even remotely controllable, meaning if you decide to forgo the vibes, your partner can enjoy them instead!
Hot Octopuss PULSE SOLO LUX Male Masturbator
Strokers are a great, traditional, and effective design, but sometimes you want to try something a bit different. Enter, the PULSE SOLO LUX from Hot Octopuss! Offering eight intensities spread throughout six patterns, this toy will put you on the fast track to your next orgasm without requiring you to tire out your arm. The PULSE SOLO LUX securely grips your penis, targeting the frenulum, and allows you to start masturbating right away, even if you don’t have an erection. A godsend for men with ED and a great toy for everyone else, you haven’t lived until you’ve tried this amazing male vibrator!
Few toys can be used even without an erection, but that’s actually where the PULSE SOLO LUX shines. Since this is literally a male vibrator, the initial hardness of your penis doesn’t matter, and the toy is sure to give you an erection quickly anyway. The intense vibrations will quickly push most men to orgasm, but this can be a bit annoying if you were hoping for a longer solo session. Fortunately, the intensity is adjustable, so whether you’re looking for a quick session or a longer one, it shouldn’t be too hard to find a setting that suits you: it’s just a matter of trial and error! Unfortunately, these intense vibrations do come at a cost, which is the loud noises that this toy can produce. While you could certainly drown out the noise with some background music, it would have been nice if Hot Octopuss could have found a way to make the toy a bit quieter. Still, it doesn’t advertise itself as a quiet toy, only as an effective male vibrator, and to that extent, it more than exceeded our expectations!
Vibrating Butt Plugs for Men
If you’ve tried the butt plug above and decided that butt play is something you’d like to look into more, chances are, you’re enthusiastic but unsure exactly where to start. Here are a few great butt plugs to help you on your journey!
A Male Vibrator Like No Other
Need a vibrator that works for both “him” and “her”? Check this unique toy out!
Choosing a Male Vibrator
The three main types of male vibrators are stroker vibrators, frenulum vibrators, and prostate vibrators. Each targets a different part of your body so the type you choose will have a big effect on your overall experience.
Stroker vibrators are similar to your average Fleshlight: they target the entire penis. Frenulum vibrators—as the name would suggest—target your frenulum, whereas prostate vibrators are inserted inside of your anus and target the prostate to provide a unique type of orgasm.
How to Use a Male Vibrator
There are a few different types of male vibrators. Here’s how to use them!
These vibrators are used just like regular strokers. Make sure to lube your toy up properly, then insert your penis, turn on the vibrations (some models may require you to do this beforehand), and stroke yourself to completion!
This type of vibrator is designed to specifically target your frenulum, which is the area where the underside of your penis meets your foreskin. To use this type of vibrator, first, turn it on, lube it up, and then place it on the tip of your penis. From here, you can either hold it in place or play around with adjustments until you achieve orgasm!
Unlike the other two types of male vibrators, these vibrators go inside of your anus! Also known as the “P-spot” (the male equivalent of the G-Spot), the prostate is a highly sensitive organ that can produce a different type of orgasm than you would achieve from regular sexual stimulation. To use a prostate vibrator, first, liberally lubricate the toy as well as your anus, and then slowly slide the toy inside of your butt. Once you’ve managed to get it inside of you, turn on the vibrations and move the toy around until you find your P-spot. You’ll know once you’ve found it. From here, enjoy!
How to Clean a Male Vibrator
Both non-porous and porous materials can be cleaned using a washcloth and antibacterial soap (you can also use a dedicated toy cleaner). Simply wipe off the surface one using the soap, again using water, and then pat the toy down using a dry towel. After this, leave your toy out to air dry completely before storing it to avoid bacteria buildup.
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
