Just a few weeks into pandemic life, the Los Angeles Times ran the headline, “Sex-Toy Sales Are Up, Stigma Is Down.” The general exploration of our sexuality, including increased engagement with sex toys, even on the part of men, made a lot of sense two years ago, for reasons I don’t think I need to recount here.
But just because the pandemic’s over — or at least our concern with it — that doesn’t mean men have to revert back to the before times and feel shame about sex-toy use. We’re still arguably in a sex recession, and even if we weren’t, there’s nothing wrong with getting yourself off. In fact doing so has its benefits.
So if there isn’t a willing partner in sight and you require or just appreciate stimulation assistance, here’s a handful (sorry) of highly recommended mechanical strokers on the market today.

A couple of Redditors hail stroker products by Tenga, particularly the Flex. With a malleable, ribbed case, the Flex creates a unique twisting sensation as you pump. The function of the airhole at the end is only optional. Plug it with your finger to enhance the vacuum.
Advertised as a masturbator that’s been engineered to “target the Merkel-Ranvier receptors (highly sensitive pleasure receptors) in the penis,” the Voy is powerful yet soft, and compact enough for comfortable use. Zachary Zane, a sex journalist and sex expert for P.S. Condoms, appreciates the Voy’s adjustable levels of tightness. “It fits and feels pleasurable for all penises, regardless of shape and size,” he says.
“The Autoblow AI+ has an AI setting, so you never receive the same blowjob twice,” says Zane. “Additionally, Autoblow AI+ has six voice commands: Go, Pause, Faster, Slower, Next, and Finish Me. The ‘Finish Me’ command activates the surprise AI experience at the highest speed to bring you to orgasm as quickly as possible.”
“This toy is excellent because it can be hidden in your shower super easily!” says Marla Renee Stewart, MA, a sexpert for the sex-toy marketplace Lovers. “Not only can you use it and clean it in the shower, but you can also have it out in plain sight without anyone knowing.” If all that wasn’t enough, this sneaky sex toy also has a pop top that allows you to control the suction.
Sticking with the theme of portability you can take this stroker sleeve with you anywhere. You’ll probably also want to carry around some water-based lube, too. Its materials are highly flexible and devoid of phthalates and all other body-harmful materials.
The Ion Pleasure Air Stroker is engineered with soft and durable silicon, designed to stimulate thousands of nerve endings in your penis. This sleek, all-black sex toy does its dirty work with cutting-edge air-pressure technology. “This toy is revolutionary in the sense that it has the wonderful air pulse technology made for penises,” says Stewart. “If you want a deeper and stronger sensation, this is the toy that you should go to.”
Because any time we get a new piece of technology, we figure out ways to apply it to sexual experiences, this thrusting stroker is enabled via app over Wi-Fi. According to SVAKOM, the Alex Neo is configured for long distance connection, local control or interactive web experiences. So you can connect with webcammers anywhere in the world and sync up your device to their performances. This feature also works with Pornhub videos.
A headphone jack provides accessibility to its five “audible experiences.” The textured, soft silicone sleeve also has seven different thrusting modes.
“This is a phenomenal toy for its interactive experience alone,” says Stewart. The fact that you can pair it with your favorite porn and align the strokes accordingly can make it feel like virtual reality, she says. “With limited manual work and working with your mind and the images, this can get you one of the best and strongest orgasms you’ve ever had.”
