Men may be experts in masturbation, but that doesn't mean they know all there is to know about getting off solo. In fact, one of the best-kept secrets in the world of sex toys is the male masturbator. Designed to do a much better job than the hand, a masturbator can have many surprising benefits.
Most masturbators contain a hollow channel lined with special textures and grooves to enhance each stroke, and many have a hole at both ends that can be covered for adjustable suction.
Strokers are given their name from the stroking motion associated with this small, handheld device. Many are manual, though some vibrate for added sensation. Most will have a textured exterior to maintain an easy grip, and some will be reversible. Strokers tend to be either anatomically correct with an opening that mimics a mouth, vagina, or anus, or non-anatomically correct, which can be easier for first time users or those looking for something extra discreet.
