Many people think that vibrators are mainly for women. But guess what? Vibes don’t discriminate against sex; they only enhance it! Adding vibration to the bedroom can be fantastic for men, too! So, can men use vibrators? Contrary to common misconceptions, the pleasure-inducing magic of vibrations is not limited to any gender. Men have a whole world of untapped pleasure waiting for them. Whether playing solo or with a partner, incorporating a vibrator into intimate moments can open new avenues of pleasure you may have never considered. So, let's break free from stereotypes and embrace the pleasure that knows no boundaries. Join us on this enlightening journey and discover why the modern man is embracing the buzz.

Do men use vibrators?

Absolutely! While there are various women's vibrators, there are vibrators for men, too. In the past, some men may have hesitated or faced ridicule for using sex toys, which were historically branded as exclusively female. However, recent research shows that men, regardless of sexual orientation, use vibrators, and appreciate the excitement that vibrators provide, solo and with partners.

Research on men's use of sex toys has uncovered some interesting stats. In the US, a study from 2009 revealed that 14.2% of men had used a vibrator in the last year, with 44.8% having used one at some point in their lives, solo or with a partner.

It's worth noting that vibrator use transcended sexual orientations with 44.5% of straight men using sex toys, (debunking the myth that only gay men use sex toys), 66.7% of bisexual men, and 50% of gay men.

A 2010 study conducted with bisexual and gay men discovered that they use sex toys in all sorts of ways. Most men who've used a vibrator in the past did so during solo play (86.2%, to be exact). And when it comes to getting busy with a partner, vibrators often make their way into foreplay (65.9%) and intercourse (59.4%).

Moreover, a more recent 2016 study with heterosexual men in relationships found that using sex toys together wasn’t something just for women, but something for the relationship that increased overall partner intimacy, novelty, and sexual pleasure for both.

So, to answer the question, do guys use vibrators? You betcha! 

Do vibrators work on men?

That’s an easy one to answer – yes. The science of pleasure has explored how the male body responds to vibration, and the findings are fascinating. Vibrators can bring many benefits, like increased blood flow, enhanced arousal, and other health advantages. Men who use vibrators have reported improved sexual function, heightened desire, and more satisfying intercourse. A 2009 study found that men who used vibrators recently were more likely to be proactive about their sexual health, and reported higher sexual satisfaction and orgasms, as well as erectile function.

Vibrators can also significantly enhance male pleasure and satisfaction during both solo and partnered sexual experiences by introducing new sensations, diversity, and novelty. The male body has plenty of erogenous zones that can be stimulated with vibrators for extra excitement. These include the head and shaft of the penis, the frenulum, the testicles, the perineum, the nipples, and even the external and internal areas of the anus for prostate stimulation or anal stimulation. Gentle vibrations on any of these erogenous zones can be thrilling and sensational.

Vibrators for men

Men have a bunch of vibrator options designed to stimulate different parts of their anatomy like the prostate, perineum, or penis. Some options include prostate massagers, vibrating male masturbators, vibrating penis rings, vibrating butt plugs, and wand massagers. If it vibrates and feels good, it's worth exploring. Just make sure to choose a vibrator made from body-safe materials and one that provides the type of stimulation you're after.

If you're looking for suggestions, try some of these male vibrators:

  • Tenuto 2: An award-winning wearable male vibrator that enhances male performance, sensation, and blood flow, ensuring stronger and long-lasting erections. Its four powerful motors stimulate key erogenous zones of the penis and perineum for intense pleasure and powerful ejaculations. But that’s not all, it has dedicated motors that vibrate against a partner’s clitoris and vulva during sex for an equally amazing couple experience.
  • Tenuto Mini: This compact and flexible wearable vibrator is similar in function and features to Tenuto 2, just smaller and without the perineum motor. It improves male performance, increases blood flow to prolong pleasure, and provides a powerful orgasm. Its three powerful motors send vibrations to every inch of the penis, clitoris, and vulva.
  • Molto: An ultra-slim, ultra-flexible anal vibrator tailored for prostate stimulation. Since the prostate is at an angle in every man’s body, Molto’s neck bends to your unique body shape and position, offering targeted vibrations directly to the prostate and anus. It's especially suitable for first-time users looking to explore anal orgasms with a slim and discreet product that isn’t as girthy and large as most prostate products on the market.

This award-winning vibrator can be bent into a multitude of shapes and used on all bodies – so your female partner can use it as well as you, making it the perfect multi-tool for pleasure.
