What Makes Your Perfect Vibrating Masturbator?
When shopping around for your ideal vibrating masturbator match, there are a few key things to keep in mind that could make or break your experience:
- Materials — masturbators with TPE sleeves are softer and squishier, which can feel more realistic. However, TPE is a porous material, which can harbor germs and deteriorates faster than non-porous materials like silicone.
- Buzzy vs Rumbly Vibrations — we categorize vibrations as either buzzy or rumbly (or somewhere between the two). Buzzy vibrations are high frequency, are felt more on the surface and can feel ticklish to some. Rumbly vibes are lower frequency, penetrating deeper into the tissue, and are many people’s preferred style.
- Features — you might prefer a masturbator with lots of different speed and pattern settings, or a simpler design with just one or two. There are also vibrating masturbators with suction and constriction functions, or those that stroke automatically.
- Ease of Cleaning — things to look for that make cleaning your masturbator more practical include a removable sleeve, a masturbator that opens up (or has an open design), and silicone instead of TPE.
What is a Vibrating Masturbator?
Vibrating masturbators are toys for penis-owners that combine the traditional elements of a penis stroker with the buzzy delights of a vibrator. They can vary a lot in style, from Fleshlight-styles with realistic-looking and feeling sleeves, to high-tech rigs with inflating linings and suction, to smaller, more versatile models that can be used all over the body! Whatever kind of pleasure you're looking for, there's a vibrating masturbator out there for you.

The 7 Best vibrating masturbators in Test
Lovense Max 2
The Lovense Max 2 is one of the most loved male sex toys available today, and its our top vibrating masturbator pick!
It starts off with a discreet case, but inside lies a squishy TPE sleeve filled with textured nubs for a delightfully realistic feeling as you stroke it up and down your penis. Then, there are the vibrations. The Max 2 delivers powerful and incredibly rumbly vibrations all along your penis, but that’s not all! There’s also an inner lining that inflates, creating a sensation of intense suction and tightness.
Control these features manually, with the buttons on the case, or try out the Lovense Remote App. It allows you to control it all from your phone, customize vibration and suction patterns, sync it to sounds, and even create alarms! You can also easily hand-off control to your partner, whether they’re in the room or on the other side of the world. And finally, the Lovense Max 2 can also connect to other Lovense toys, reacting to each other’s movements!
You really can’t get much more satisfying than the Lovense Max 2. It has every feature you need to create your ultimate masturbation session, and it’s all totally customizable. If you’re looking to upgrade your current set-up, whether that be a Fleshlight or your hand, the Max 2 could be your new best friend.
It might require a little more clean-up than you’re used to, but the removable sleeve makes it easy to keep both it and the case thoroughly clean. Just be sure to read the instructions before you stick it underwater, as it’s not fully waterproof and needs a careful hand.
Lovehoney Head Master Vibrating Blow Job Stroker
The Lovehoney Head Master is proof that a small package doesn’t mean less fun! This double-ended masturbator has a simple design, with a clear TPE sleeve and an open canal with plenty of nubs inside that offer some intense texture. Also inside is a battery-powered bullet vibrator, which is removable and buzzes away next to your boner as you stroke.
This vibrating masturbator is perfect for both solo and partner play, especially if this is one of your first forays into sex toys. The clear sleeve means that both of you can see what’s going on as you play — what an enticing sight! Pro tip: try using it during a blowjob for extra intense sensations along your whole shaft.
If you want to dip your toe into the world of vibrating masturbators for the first time, or just don’t want to spend a pretty penny, then check out the Lovehoney Head Master. It’s super simple to use, and makes a great addition to masturbation, oral sex and foreplay.
Users note that it can feel quite tight, though how much obviously depends on how girthy you are. Take a look at the measurements in the table above to see if it could be right for you, though remember that the TPE material is quite stretchy.
The other thing to keep in mind about the Head Master is that it doesn’t have the most advanced vibrations. The bullet vibe only has one speed, and is pretty buzzy, which can feel a bit tickly and superficial to some. However, the sleeve should diffuse some of this buzziness once its inside.
Tenga Flip Zero Electronic Vibrating Masturbator
We think that this just might be the most easy-to-use masturbator ever! An evolution of the original Tenga Flip Zero, the Flip Zero EV has the same innovative folding design, but with two powerful vibrating motors added to the mix. When you open up the Flip Zero EV, you’ll see a sleeve with so much texture that it resembles a spaceship from a sci-fi movie. Squirt some lube over the open sleeve, then close the lid and slide right in. It’s designed to give you a comfortable tight sensation, but you can also squeeze the pressure pads on the front and back to adjust the level of suction inside. Then, all that’s left is to turn on the vibes! The motors are situated in the middle and at the end of the sleeve, so you can feel them all the way up your shaft as you thrust in and out.
Finally, perhaps the best thing about the Tenga Flip Zero EV is how insanely easy it is to clean. Just open the lid and rinse thoroughly, before leaving it open to dry. The accompanying charging base serves as a convenient drying rack, and you can even charge it while it dries!
We truly think that the Tenga Flip Zero EV looks absolutely fantastic! It’s futuristic and high-quality, but also discreet and oh-so practical. It’s comically easy to clean, and doesn’t come with the same steep learning curve as other vibrating masturbators, making it perfect for first-timers. Since you can start with it open, it can also be used when flaccid.
However, with its unique design and added vibes, you might expect that it doesn’t come cheap. In fact, it’s one of the most expensive products on this list. With good care, the Flip Zero EV can last you a long, long time, but if you don’t have this kind of budget right now, there are plenty of other top picks on this list to peruse.
Fun Factory Manta
The Fun Factory Manta might not look like your most typical vibrating masturbator, but that’s because it’s that and so much more!
This multi-use toy can be used alone to add some extra vibes to your usual masturbation routine, or can spice up a handjob or blowjob from a partner. It can even be used on the testicles, perineum or nipples — all sensitive areas that can really get you going! The Manta is a stroker with open, flexible ‘wings’ that carry the vibrations from its powerful motor all the way around your penis. The silicone features ripples of texture for even more sensations as it rumbles away while you stroke it up and down.
The slightly curved design makes it easy to hold, and the controls are super simple. Just press and play, and don’t forget to use a generous amount of water-based lube!
We love a practical sex toy, especially when it feels amazing, too! The Fun Factory Manta is there to add rumbly vibrations to any and all of your erotic activities. Plus, it’s made from body-safe, non-porous silicone, and is 100% waterproof — perfect for using in the shower or bath, and for easy cleaning.
For those with roommates or kids, the quietness of the Manta could be its winning quality. With a closed door, no one would ever guess what kinds of bliss you’re experiencing with it!
Fleshlight Vibro Pink Lady
Think traditional Fleshlight, but with a twist… The Fleshlight Vibro has the same realistic Pink Lady orifice, soft and squishy SuperSkin sleeve and discreet case that we’re used to seeing, along with some extras! The sleeve has a slightly different design from its counterparts, with three slots around the top for three (included) bullet vibrators to slip into. Once they’re inside, slip the sleeve back into the case and thrust away like usual, while enjoying the extra sensations provided by the bullets buzzing away. The sleeve has nubs all the way along its canal that suck you in and provide resistance as you pull out, which you can make even more extreme by adjusting the suction using the cap on the end of the case. And, yet another great thing about this vibrating masturbator? It fits all the Fleshlight accessories for the original size models, including the shower mount, Fleshlight Universal Launch, drying units and more.
If you already have a collection of Fleshlights and accessories, the Fleshlight Vibro could be a great addition to the gang! The versatility and familiarity of Fleshlights makes them a winner for many, and the Vibro gives the ability to change up your sensations as you please. Plus, it’s the only model with a sleeve that has slots for bullet vibrators, so it’s a pretty unique experience.
The downside, however, is that the bullets are quite buzzy, not overly powerful. This is especially true when compared to other vibrating strokers on this list. Also, some users have noted that the texture is not as interesting as many other Fleshlights, like those in the Fleshlight Girls range.
The Lovense Calor is one of those sex toys that just looks beautiful. Here at Bedbible HQ, we think that it looks more like a cool portable speaker than a vibrating masturbator — talk about discreet!
However, it’s got brains as well as beauty. Using its Depth-Control mode, the deeper you penetrate it, the more powerful its vibrations will become. This allows you to control the intensity of your experience, though you can also control the vibes manually. There’s also a squeezable grip on the side of the case that lets you add more pressure and tightness as you stroke. And finally, the star of the show might just be the Calor’s self-warming function! No more dipping sleeves in warm water and dripping everywhere — now you can achieve realistic and comforting warmth at the touch of a button.
Just like the Lovense Max 2, the Lovense Calor also has all the benefits of the Lovense Remote app controls. That means partner controls, connecting to other toys, syncing to sounds and more.
This one really does it all! The Lovense Calor is a high-quality male masturbator with powerful vibrations and a whole host of extras to make your sessions more luxurious. Plus, it’s practical, too. It has removable caps on both ends and a 100% silicone interior for easy cleaning, and can even be programmed with your favorite modes and patterns for a great feeling every time.
Some users who have reviewed the Calor have noted that it can be quite loud, so it may not be as discreet as it first appears. However, this will also depend on how big you are and how intense you go.
Hot Octopuss PULSE III Duo
The Hot Octopuss Pulse III Duo is a vibrating masturbator with an unusual way of working. It uses Hot Octopuss’ patented Pulse Plate Technology to stimulate your penis in a way that is sure to both surprise and delight! This consists of a circular plate on the interior of the masturbator that oscillates up and down really fast, creating super rumbly vibrations that emanate from one spot. You can use the Pulse III Duo as a stroker, or you can stay still and keep the vibrations concentrated on the glans and frenulum, the most sensitive spots on the penis.
On the back of this toy is another motor that pumps out rumbly vibrations for your partner to enjoy. Position it around your penis with the underside facing upward, then have your partner sit on it cowgirl-style. They can grind away to their heart’s content, adding extra movement for you as well. It’s a great way to find the elusive simultaneous orgasm!
The Hot Octopuss Pulse III Duo is a great pick for anyone looking to bring their partner along for the ride, but could be especially helpful for those who experience ED or issues with grip or mobility. It can be used as a penis head vibrator without having to stroke or thrust, so it’s accessible to all!
This masturbator may not be as powerful on the vibrations as others on this list, but it’s not really designed to be. Instead, why not enjoy a softer, gentle journey to orgasm? Or, try it out during foreplay as a way to stimulate yourself without going too far too early.
Is This Most Realistic Vibrating Masturbator Ever?
If advanced sex toys is what gets you going, you can’t get much better than the Kiiroo Keon. This masturbator takes the meaning of the phrase ‘realistic masturbator’ to new heights, allowing you to totally customize your experience before sitting back and enjoying while it strokes for you! You can change the speed of the strokes, the stroke length, the tightness and the level of suction inside. Then, it will do all the work for you. The sleeve itself is Kiiroo’s Real Feel sleeve with an anatomical orifice, a soft and squishy feel, and delicious textures inside. But, that’s not all! The Keon can actually be synced with all kinds of porn content, and even a VR headset, so you can get truly immersed in the sensations.
Vibrating Male Toys for Your Butt!
Your penis deserves pleasure, of course, but did you know that there are other ways to play? The prostate, located just inside the anus, is a hidden orgasm gem just waiting to be discovered. If you’re curious, here are some of our favorite vibrating male anal toys to try out…
How to Use Vibrating Masturbators
Of course, every vibrating masturbator is different, so how you use it will depend on which one you choose. However, they all follow a similar theme, so here’s a basic guide to get started with…
Lube is the most essential element of using any sex toy! If you try putting your dick into a masturbator without it, you’ll end up with an unpleasant amount of friction, if you get it in there at all. We recommend going for a water-based lube, and thoroughly lubing up both the toy and yourself before starting.
When you’re ready, slowly start to insert your penis into the vibrating masturbator. Most of the time, you’ll have to be hard to do this, but some toys, like the Hot Octopuss Pulse range, can be used while flaccid.
Play Around With the Vibes
Most vibrating masturbators have multiple modes and speeds to choose from. Familiarize yourself with the controls beforehand, then play around with the settings until you find what works for you! You might like pre-set patterns, or prefer to change them yourself, amping them up before climax or starting off strong.
How to Clean a Vibrating Masturbator
Male masturbators are famously not the easiest sex toys to clean. Yet, keeping it clean is essential to keep everything hygienic, and to make sure your toy lasts as long as possible. Since every masturbator is unique, and many of them contain electronic parts that aren't waterproof, we recommend following the instructions from the manufacturer. Often, the inner sleeve is removable, allowing you to clean it separately from the case. In this case, you should thoroughly rinse the sleeve through (turning it inside out if you can) before leaving it dry completely. Most cases can be wiped clean with a damp cloth and some soap or toy cleaner, and left to dry completely, too.
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.
