A Helping Hand: The Benefits of Masturbating with Toys

If you've used luxury sex toys during encounters with others but haven't masturbated with them, this is your invitation to start. We promise you're missing out.

The Benefits of Masturbating with Toys

Using Sex Toys with others is excellent. For example, a C-ring can stimulate a penis and include ears for stimulating a partner's clitoris. As a result, both partners have even more fun. 

But using sex toys on yourself is an entirely different ball game. Why?

Adjust According to Your Needs

Because you know precisely how you're feeling while using a sex toy on yourself, you can adjust accordingly. Do you want more vibration? You can change the toy to fit your needs without even thinking about it and instantly feel more pleasure. You don't have to direct someone else to reach just the right spot. 

Focus on Yourself

You can also focus entirely on your pleasure rather than worrying about someone else's. For some of the most intense orgasms, you have to try masturbating with toys. 

More Sustained Sensations

Humans get tired. While sex toys can run out of battery life, their run time is usually much longer than the average human's. With a vibrator, you can get an hour of consistent stimulation. 

How To Masturbate with Sex Toys?

How can you use sex toys by yourself? Let us count the ways.

Give Yourself Space

Motorized sex toys do make noise, so make sure to turn on your new toy when you're alone before trying to use it when someone is in a nearby room. 

Use While Enjoying Steamy Media

Whether you like watching ethically made porn or reading a steamy book, sex toys can be an excellent way for you to stimulate yourself without disengaging from what you're looking at. In the case of books, toys can help when you only have one hand available. 

A New Bath Toy

Masturbating is a great way to make your shower or bath even more relaxing. Water proof sex toys take this to a whole other level. Look for waterproof toys that can handle the steam.

Reminder: Use Lubricant!

lubricants for sex toys

Lubricant can make partnered sex more comfortable and fun — and the same is true for sex toy masturbation! Especially when you're inserting something or using a sleeve or stroker, make sure that you have lots of high-quality lubricants. In general, you'll want to use a water-based lubricant whenever you're using a silicone sex toy. 

Types of Sex Toys for Solo Play

While some sex toys are designed for couples, almost all of them can be used for masturbation. Following are our recommendations for the types of sex toys best suited for alone time. 

Female Masturbation Sex Toys

Female Masturbation Sex Toys

A recent survey by Statista indicated that 65% of U.S. women own a sex toy. They are popular, and with that popularity comes a range of choices. 

Clitoral Vibrators

Clitoral vibrators come in various shapes and sizes, from small bullets to vibrators with ears. Some clitoral stimulators use suction and motion instead of vibration.

G-Spot Vibrators

G-spot vibrators come in many shapes and sizes. Some come with several vibration settings, while others depend on the user to provide movement. 

Dual Vibrators 

Dual vibrators stimulate both the clitoris and the G-spot area, a combination hard to achieve on your own. 

Male Masturbation Sex Toys

Male Masturbation Sex Toys

Unfortunately, men have historically had fewer choices regarding sex toys. At JimmyJane, we're dedicated to creating high-quality toys for everyone. Hands are great, but toys can add a whole new dimension to your pleasure.

C-Rings

C-rings are great for people who would like their erections to last longer. They can make your penis more sensitive and make every touch more pleasurable.

Sleeves

Sleeves completely engulf a penis and usually contain motors for a stroking sensation, allowing for a more hand's-off experience. 

Prostate Massagers

Prostate massagers are vibrators designed to stimulate the prostate. Prostate orgasms feel unique and can be hard to achieve without a toy. 

Butt Plugs

Plugs and anal beads are generally non-motorized toys meant to insert the anal cavity. They're great since that area can be a bit hard to reach by yourself, especially if you want to stimulate another area simultaneously. 

Strokers

Strokers cover all or part of the penis and enhance the stroking sensation, often with a ribbed texture. These are great for people who like to keep it simple but could use a step up from simply using their hands. 

JimmyJane's Favorite Sex Toys for Solo Play

Once you find a good sex toy with all the settings you like, you want it to last for as long as possible, so you don't have to go through the discovery process all over again. You also don't want it to run out of battery life right when things are heating up or malfunctioning after touching a bit of water. Quality matters because you want a sex toy you can rely on.
