Male MasturbatorsUsing Male Masturbation Sleeves

Men's masturbation sleeves are made of soft, resilient materials that retain body heat and surround the penis with a very snug and sexy feel. They can be designed to look like a mouth, vagina, or anus or have a nondescript look. It is essential to add lubrication to them as the materials will be difficult to penetrate without them. 

To learn more about the porous materials such as TPE or TPR, please read our helpful article: Elastomers & Porous Sex Toys Guide.

Tips For Using A Masturbation Sleeve

  • Make sure that there are no inserts inside your sleeve; if there are, make sure to remove it before using.

  • Determine what material a masturbation sleeve is made from, as this will indicate what lubricants will be compatible with the sleeve.

  • Have ample lubricant available as masturbation sleeve materials are often made using porous materials that can easily absorb lubricant. To learn more about lubricants, please see our The Ultimate Personal Lubricant Guide

  • If the materials of the sleeve or porous, do not use soap to clean them as the soap will get inside the pores and may not easily rinse out, causing it to froth up when used in the future. Use a spray-on sex toy cleaner and allow it to soak into the material's pores, letting it sit for at least 10 minutes, and then rinse with water. For more information, please see our How To Clean Sex Toys Guide.

  • If the masturbation sleeve is to be shared, please note that STDs can be passed from one person to another when using them, even if cleaned, as the pores make it impossible to disinfect them thoroughly.

  • After a masturbation sleeve is used, it can feel tacky to the touch. To remedy this, use lubricant over it and in it, or to get the original skin-like feel of it, you can sprinkle cornstarch or sex toy powder on it, and it will feel just like it did when it was new.

To Enhance Endurance

Set a timer to go off in 10 minutes, and don't allow ejaculation to occur until the timer goes off. You can increase the time if you desire. Waiting will increase the anticipation because the alarm could ring at any second. Try to hover right on the edge (edging), so you can orgasm immediately when the alarm rings. This can heighten the sense of urgency and tension relief.
