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 right sex toys, 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 an anal toy 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!

Types of Gay Sex Toys

As we mentioned before, there’s really no specific range of gay sex toys that you can dive into and pick your favourites. 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 finding the right sex toys for you? There are several sensations that you can add to your bedroom play to bring an extra element.

Vibrations

Adding vibration to sex is a sure-fire way to increase the intensity by sending wild vibrations through those erogenous zones. When it comes to vibrating toys, there’s plenty to choose from. A bullet vibrator is small but powerful, allowing you to focus vibrations on particular areas, such as the scrotum or tip of the penis. If internal vibrations are more your thing, a vibrating butt plug or classic vibrating dildo should hit the spot.

Bondage

If bondage toys are what gets you going, there’s plenty to choose from, whether you’re a bondage beginner or experienced in the art. Handcuffs and restraints are always a good place to start, allowing you to tie up your partner and assert your dominance. There’s also whips, paddles, ticklers and much more to make for a very kinky night between the sheets.

The P-Spot

First off, if you haven’t already, read our Prostate Stimulation: Where is the Male G Spot? guide. The male prostate, or P-spot, is a hidden bundle of nerve endings that can give you truly earth-shattering orgasms if it’s played with in the right way. Vibrating butt plugs and dildos can be great for this, or you could try a prostate massager, designed specifically to hit the right spot.

These ideas are just a start when it comes to gay sex toys. There’s so much to try and experiment with, just take your time and have fun with it. We’ve picked our top 5 best gay sex toys below to showcase our particular favourites.

Our Top 5 Best Gay Sex Toys

1. Cock Ring

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 Plug

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 Massager

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 Dildo

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.
