Which sex toy is the best starter product for me?
In recent years, attitudes towards male masturbation and the use of sex toys by men worldwide have changed for the better, away from the perceived taboo. In fact, in the TENGA 2020 Global Self Pleasure Report, we found that 41% of men in the US alone have used a sex toy. This is a drastic increase from the 20% of men from the same report in 2016. While this is a positive change, TENGA also found that most men masturbate regularly, but there is still a large percentage who have never tried a sex toy.
Although it may seem daunting finding the right starter sex toy for you, we would like to introduce you to 5 of the best TENGA masturbators for beginners.
Product 1: TENGA STANDARD Original Vacuum CUP
The first in TENGA's line of male masturbators and the sex toy that started it all, the Original Vacuum CUP is perfect for beginners in this regard. Designed to be a relatively affordable yet high quality disposable male sex toy, the CUP can be purchased and used by a complete beginner as a quick and easy introduction to the world of male sex toys.
Even though this is the first masturbator in the TENGA line for men, the interior design is still sophisticated and offers multiple sensations with the vacuum hole at the top of the cup that can be used manually with a finger to create extra suction during use.
If a beginner uses and likes the Original Vacuum CUP, there is an easy next step for them too. The STANDARD CUP Series also includes the TENGA SOFT CASE CUP, TENGA ROLLING HEAD CUP, TENGA DUAL SENSATION and TENGA AIR FLOW CUP. All of these male masturbators offer the same affordable yet high quality sex toy design, but with different uses. Each of these CUPs offers a different way for a beginner to try new sensations and simulations without breaking the bank.
Product 2: TENGA EGG Variety Packs
Another affordable alternative to the Original Vacuum CUP are the TENGA EGG 6 Packs. Each of these packs contains six disposable EGGs that offer different sensations and stimulation with unique interior designs. Buying a pack of TENGA EGGs, or even a few individual EGGs, can offer male sex toy beginners a chance to affordably experience completely new sensations, and with a product that is both easy to use and dispose of.
Each EGG has its own unique interior design and comes packaged with a sachet of lotion. All you need to do is open the EGG, pour the lotion inside the EGG and around the insertion point then use! When you are satisfied, all you have to do is put EGG back in its packaging, close it and throw it away. With over 24 designs, beginners can take their time to find the perfect sensation for them - at an affordable price.
Product 3: TENGA SPINNER
The TENGA SPINNER is one of TENGA's most popular male masturbators. It is also one of the best sex toys for an affordable entry into the world of reusable male masturbators. There are nine different sex toys in the TENGA SPINNER range, each with a different rating for three different variables: Firmness, Stimulation and Diameter. This product has also been awarded the Red Dot Design Award 2019. So men looking for the best sex toy for beginners can be sure of the quality and design of this product.
The internal coil ensures that the SPINNER twists when you insert and triggers incredible sensations with every thrust. The SPINNER is easy to use even for beginners as not much movement is needed to get great stimulation. The product is also easy to maintain for first-time users of reusable sex toys. The design of the SPINNER's casing not only allows the sex toy to be stored away hygenically, but also allows the masturbator to be dried after washing.
The TENGA SPINNER Series is a great solution for sex toy beginners who are looking for an easy to use, reusable option.
Product 4: TENGA FLEX
The flexible, spiral-shaped cover of the TENGA FLEX Series creates a 'spinning stimulation" by covering the air hole at the top of the device during use. In this way, the FLEX winds up and down, creating an amazing, spiralling sensation. This allows a beginner to use the FLEX as gently as they'd like or to experience additional stimulation once they have become accustomed to the sensation.
Just like the TENGA SPINNER, the FLEX was awarded the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018 award, so beginners can be assured of the quality and design of this sex toy. Also, the FLEX has a similar built-in drying system as the SPINNER, whereby the user can flip the product's Stand Cap to get a handy stand on which the user can place the FLEX to dry after washing.
Of all the mid-priced products that TENGA offers, this is a great entry into the world of sex toys that can be easily maintained and reused.
Product 5: TENGA FLIP ZERO
The TENGA FLIP ZERO is last on our list because although it is a great sex toy for both beginners and people who are used to male masturbators, it is the most expensive product on the list. In that respect, it might not be the best option for beginners who want to try a sex toy for the first time on a budget, but in terms of stimulation, quality and reusability, it's definitely top of the list.
Using the best materials and the latest technology, the FLIP ZERO has a seamless insertion point that provides a perfect seal so no lubricant leaks, and a strong vacuum made possible by a one-way valve. The FLIP ZERO has the most sophisticated internal details on this list for great sensation, and TENGA's breakthrough FLIP-open feature ensures the item remains hygienic for multiple uses.
The FLIP ZERO also has a built- in drying system with sliding arms on which the FLIP ZERO can be dried after the user has cleaned the product. Although this item is popular with users who are used to male masturbators, it could also be the perfect product for a beginner who is willing to buy a more expensive sex toy in anticipation of a long-lasting experience.
The FLIP ZERO Series is also one of our products that has a vibration function. While the original FLIP ZERO works like a normal quality male masturbator, the FLIP ZERO EV (Electronic Vibration) adds the option of vibration through two vibrating motors located within the interior of the elastomer. While this might not be the right entry point for a first-time male sex toy user, it is a great example of the next steps that can be taken when buying, and the options that are now available in the male masturbator market.
Which Sex Toy is the Best Starter Product for Me?
Ultimately, it's up to you to decide which beginner sex toy is best for you. You need to find the right mix of possible sensations, price and reusability for you. However, we hope that with this list we have given you an introduction to different male masturbators of different price ranges and types of stimulation to give you an idea of what sex toys are available to you.
