Finding the Right Gay Sex Toys for You

Ok, so let’s start this by saying there technically isn’t such a thing as a gay sex toy. All sex toys can be used by everyone, no matter what your sexual preferences or orientation. That said, there are certainly some amazing toys that can work better than others in an all-male situation and we want to make sure our gay and bi friends don’t miss out on some of the amazing additions to their bedroom repertoire! At Ann Summers, it’s our mission to help everyone take their sex life to new levels of pleasure. That’s why we’ve put together some tips on choosing the best sex toys for gay couples, as well as some of our favourite gay sex toys.

Bringing sex toys for gay men into the bedroom

Let’s be honest, sex is always better with sex toys and it’s no different went it comes to gay sex. Bringing sex toys into any relationship or sexual encounter is always something that should be done carefully and with consideration. Here are a few tips for first timers:

number 1

Discuss it first

Bringing sex toys into the bedroom shouldn’t be something you suddenly spring upon your partner (unless you’re absolutely certain they’re going to like it!). Discuss the idea with your partner first, talk about what toys you’d like to use and go from there.

number 2

Start simple

When it comes to choosing toys, try to start with something relatively simple. Choosing a toy that’s too big, complicated, or just plain intimidating might lead to a negative experience and put you off experimenting further. Something like a cock ring can be the perfect place to start.

number 3

Use lube

Every single piece of sex toy advice we give out has one very slippery thing in common – lube! If you’ve chosen any of our gay anal sex toys to play with, make sure you use plenty of lube to avoid discomfort or injury.

number 4

Take it Slow

Whether you or your partner have tried toys before, or you’re complete novices, using toys together with someone for the first time requires patience and care. Take your time, establishing what you and your partner like and don’t like.

Bringing sex toys into the bedroom with someone else is an exciting (not to mention very pleasurable!) way to spice things up and try something different between the sheets. Following a few of these tips should help you bring up the conversation, get prepared and have a great time!

Our top 5 best gay sex toys & essentials

As we mentioned before, although there’s really no specific range of gay male sex toys, the good news is that pretty much all sex toys can be used – no matter what your sexual preference or orientation! So, where do you start when you’re looking to buy gay sex toys? We’ve compiled 5 of our most recommended gay sex toys and gay anal toys to help you get started:

1. Cock rings

A cock ring is a great beginner’s toy, as it’s not too intimidating but can be a real game changer in the bedroom. Simply slip the rubber ring over your cock and benefit from staying harder for longer, switch on the vibrations and you can both feel the benefit of these intense new sensations. Our Beginner’s Guide to Cock Rings gives you even more advice.

2. Butt plugs

Whether you’re a top or a bottom (or both), a butt plug can be a really useful and fun sex toy. These toys are a great way to prepare for penetration during foreplay, helping relax the muscles around your anus, or they can be inserted by the top. Did we mention they also feel great? Find out how to use a butt plug in our guide.

3. Prostate massagers

First off, if you haven’t already, read our Prostate Stimulation: Where is the Male G Spot? Guide. Honestly, a prostate orgasm will change your entire sex life! Sometimes a penis can’t quite reach the P-spot, but with a prostate massager that’s specifically designed to reach, you’ll find it much easier to have those intense orgasms. Trust us, it’s well worth it!

4. Double ended dildos

For couples who both enjoy being penetrated, a double ended dildo is the perfect sex toy. Allowing you both to receive penetration as you play with each other, a double ended dildo is a must-have! This way, nobody has to miss out!

5. Lube

Ok, so this technically isn’t a sex toy but lube is an absolute necessity in your sex toy collection – allowing every other sex toy to reach its potential. From flavoured lubes to make foreplay even more exciting to anal lubes that ensure comfortable penetration, having a range of lubes on hand is a game changer.

Sex toys are the ideal way to take your sex life to new levels of experimentation and pleasure. The great thing about sex toys is that they don’t care who’s using them – they just give out amazing pleasure! Pick your toys and get ready for a new chapter in your sex life.
