Toys for top daddies, vers queens, power bottoms and sides
Sex expert writer Zachary Zane comes through again with a great tongue-in-cheek list of 36 gay sex toys for all of us. Written for Men’s Health magazine, this is not your dad or daddy’s Men’s Health for sure. Zane starts off with, “Sex toys don’t discriminate; they’re made for anyone and everyone who wants them. That’s why no type of sex toy or butt plug is inherently ‘gay.’ We all have an anus, after all.”
Times have certainly changed from the 1970s to 2000s when most sex toys were marketed towards straight men purchasing items in seedy adult bookstores. Now there are toys for sale in brightly lit store sections and also online. “The only thing that really separates gay sex toys from those marketed toward straight men is the marketing, itself,” explains Bobby Box, a sex educator for Lovehoney. So the gay dollar is real, and we get all kinds of sex toys targeted just for us.
Zane’s best sex toy list starts out with the basics, and progressively moves to the more advanced and niche items, like anal hooks. Kinky enough?
So basically, #1 is Stainless Steel Donut Cockring by Dominix: “A staple in every queer man’s bedroom is a stainless steel cock ring. Pro tip: Don’t get cocky (pun intended) with sizing. Odds are you’re a small or medium, not a large, buddy boy.”
#6 is still pretty basic, Vibrating Butt Plug 3.5 Inch by LoveHoney: “The “Butt Tingler” from Lovehoney is about as standard as a vibrating butt plug can be. It’s made from silicone and is 3.5 inches in length making it ideal for beginners.”
By #16, it gets more interesting. Neoprene Quck Release Restraints by Mr. S Leather: “These are cheap and easy cuffs for when you only have 30 minutes to restrain and plow that guy from Scruff.”
#18 is the best dildo according to Zane, who probably tested all these products: “The Thruster is life-changing, truly. It actually can “thrust” three inches inside of you, so it feels like you’re actually being penetrated by a man. (It’s also hands-free with the attachments).”
Jumping to #25 is the Silicone Puppy Tail Butt Plug by Oxballs. These special editions come in four purebred shapes and sizes, including the beagle puppy tail above: “If you’re into pup play, then you need to have a puppy tail. (It’s a butt plug that has a tail sticking it out of it.) And tie dye is apparently back in style!”
The best butt plug lands at #28, the Snug Plug 6 by B-Vibe. Apparently the Snug Plug 6 is too “heavy” for Amazon, so they only sell up to Snug Plug 5 which is rated for Experts. B-Vibe describes their Snug Plug 6 as the Titan of Titans. Zane says: “The snug plugs are weighted butt plugs, and they come in six sizes. The fifth and sixth sizes are absolutely huge, only for anal pros. The Snug Plug 6 weights 1.13 pounds and is roughly the girth of my forearm. If you’re looking for a full feeling, look no damn further.”
If you really want to go pro in the bedroom, then #29, the Motorbunny Original is your tool. But you’ll have to shake out $899 for it. Let us know if it is worth it: “If you’re a big old bottom, and you want to get your world rocked, then you need to get a Motorbunny. Obviously, it’s not cheap, but once you sit on it and experience the incredibly powerful vibrations, you’ll stop looking for a man.”
