The 23 Best Sex Toys for Men, According to Experts

If you want to kick things up a notch in the bedroom, the best sex toys for men are a great place to start. These days, there are countless ways to slide, stroke, and vibrate into an earth-shattering orgasm—so if you’re curious, there’s no reason not to give sex toys a try.

Toys designed for penises and prostates can increase arousal, enhance pleasure, and make any sexual encounter more fun, says Todd Baratz, a certified sex therapist and licensed individual and couples’ psychotherapist. “Some people simply don’t like toys, and that is 100% okay,” he says. “However, it’s always a good idea to try everything and see what works. Toys are one thing men can explore.”

And that exploration can make your sex life better in ways you might never have expected. “Part of the benefit of sex toys is that they add another flavor of variety to our sex lives—and for the vast majority of people, variety is important,” says Andrew Smiler, PhD, a licensed therapist and author of Dating and Sex: A Guide for the 21st Century Teen Boy. “People tend to report that they are happier with their sex lives when they’re having more variety.”

Male sex toys allow you to switch things up both solo and with a partner (or partners); they present people with the “opportunity to please their partner in a new or different way,” Smiler explains. In fact, some toys are also designed specifically for couples, adding bedsheet-gripping pleasure to sex. Because there are so many ways to use sex toys, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all option, Baratz notes. “Explore and experiment with a variety of different toys, shapes, sizes, and materials,” he recommends.

If you plan to use your toy with a partner, Smiler recommends sitting down and talking through your desires together—you might discover that they have also fantasized about adding a vibrator to the fun. And Baratz recommends that you should always use lube if you’re giving anal play a shot, since it can be uncomfortable for newbies. Ready to unlock entirely new levels of pleasure? These are the absolute best sex toys for men, from beginners to experts.

Pritika Swarup Drops Her Skin-Care Routine

I also like the 111Skin eye masks. I was just in Paris and I would wake up and put them on every morning. I was jet lagged, it was four events a day, four shows. So I would put these on and then they would de-puff, brighten and tighten, and all the good things that you want out of an eye mask. 

My face mask

I do a bunch of homemade face masks that I’ve been doing my whole life. But now because we have MahaMask, it encompasses all the best of the three masks that I would do growing up. But MahaMask is this pampering moisture treatment, it’s for extra hydration and you can leave it on for 10 minutes, or you can leave it on for the full night. It has palmarosa oil, sandalwood, and turmeric butter, so it’s this really buttery, delicious mask.  I use that three times a week, because my skin lately has been on the dryer side because I’ve had so many shoots and events and work meetings and travel. That’s definitely been a great skin saver for me.

My spot treatment 

I don’t deal with acne a lot. It’s more something that pops up depending on stress or my diet. But I use the CeraVe spot treatment, it’s one of my drugstore products. It actually works really well, I’ll use it for like two days or something, and then any sort of blemish will really die down.  It’s also light and absorbs into your skin, so even if you go workout, or go out and you have a little bit of this on your face, it’s not crusty or anything like that.

My oil

I don’t really use any face oils, but if I do, it’ll be coconut oil from my kitchen. Sometimes I’ll have random dry patches on my face, and it might be because I’ve been putting on a full face of makeup for work for two weeks in row. Depending on what my skin needs, I’ll shift a little bit and say, “Okay, maybe I will use a face oil.” And sometimes when I oil my hair— I’ll do that a couple times a week—I’ll do a little massage and I’ll put some on my face too just cause it’s very relaxing. I think the oil is the best when you’re doing an abhyanga massage, or doing a body or face massage, because you can get in there and stimulate the blood flow and relieve some tension.

My mist

I’ve been using the Mario Badescu rose mist forever, and it’s such a classic and I can do it before makeup or after makeup. It’s almost a setting spray too. It’s very refreshing and gives you that uplifting moment.

My SPF

I never go out without sunscreen, though I feel like I haven’t found an amazing sunscreen that I love a lot. I use the EltaMD one that’s a go-to for everyone. It would be nice to find a sunscreen that was just a little more luxurious, but does the job.

My Lip Balm

I use a Chanel one, but I also use Aquaphor. I know Aquaphor isn’t super clean, but for some reason, nothing feels as good as Aquaphor on my lips.

My tool

NuFace sent me its Line Smoothing Device, and it’s so interesting because it sculpts your face and feels so good. I don’t use it every day, but I’ve gotten into it, and I think it works really well. A jade roller is great because it does stimulate blood flow and gets your skin feeling a little bit tighter, but with the NuFace device, it sculpts a little bit better because it’s smaller and you can define your lines more.

The Sunnies Face Fluffmatte Lipstick Lives Up to the Hype

Sunnies Face may have just launched in the United States, but for many beauty obsessives the Filipino makeup and skincare brand needs no introduction. Case in point: When I told my co-workers over Slack that we would be testing the brand’s signature Fluffmatte lipstick, I was met with enthusiastic an “OMG,” along with praise like “obsessed,” and “love.” 

The power of Sunnies Face is no secret. The brand first launched in the Philippines in 2018 and quickly became a phenomenon after the debut of Fluffmatte, which tested 350 colors and 22 formulas before landing on 15 highly pigmented and universally flattering shades. According to the brand, Fluffmatte’s first launch sold out month’s worth of inventory in the first few weeks, with one tube of Fluffmatte lipstick selling every 30 seconds in the Philippines. 

It didn’t take long for Sunnies Face to generate worldwide buzz. As a Filipino-American beauty editor, I’d heard about the velvety magic of the Fluffmatte lipstick for years. Fans on social media praise its hydrating matte formula for the smooth mousse-like texture that delivers high color payoff with no drying cracks or creases. Many of my Fil-Am beauty friends were lucky enough to score a tube while on a trip to the Philippines—or in Glamour commerce manager editor Shanna Shipin’s case, get a Tita (a term of endearment used for an aunt-like figure in your life) to buy one for you and ship it to your address. 

It’s very rare to find makeup catered towards Southeast Asian skin tones, sometimes even within Southeast Asian communities themselves. Sunnies Face co-founder Georgia Wilson knows this better than anyone and set out to create a line that fills this significant gap. “Living in the Philippines, we saw the need for a beauty brand that was inclusive of Southeast Asian skin tones,” she tells Glamour. “The Philippines has such a strong cultural love for beauty, but there were so few options of beauty products that were designed with our different skin tones in mind. We also wanted to address the gap we saw in the market of brands for professional makeup artists versus the casual makeup consumer, creating something that could work for all levels of beauty lover.”

Needless to say, the brand’s U.S. launch has been a long time coming. Wilson credits support from the Fil-Am community, along with celebrity makeup artists who have used Fluffmatte on clients like Alexa Demie, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Kate Bosworth, for making this major market expansion possible. 

“For years, we’ve had US customers finding creative ways to get our products in the states, asking their friends and family to bring it back from their travels, so it’s really special to finally be available here and meet that demand,” Wilson says. “We’re so thrilled to see the support too, not just from the Filipino community, but from the many celebrities, makeup artists and influential names who have been fans of the brand and continue to show their love for what we are doing.”

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly Got Matching Tattoos on Their Ring Fingers

No judgment, but much of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s whole ~ thing ~ is going farther than your average couple. Most of us don’t display quite so much PDA or drink our partner’s blood—though if you do, more power to you. Yet their latest romantic stunt, getting matching tattoos on their ring fingers, is downright regular! I would totally do that!

Beyoncé and Jay-Z both have tattoos on that finger in lieu of wedding rings, and even non-couples have gotten similar ink. Olivia Rodrigo, Charli D’Amelio, Iris Apatow, and Avani Gregg got matching friendship tattoos on their fingers (hearts and smiley faces). The cast of Pretty Little Liars cemented their bond with “A” tattoos on their “shh” fingers. So what adorable, simple design did MF and MGK decide on? Perhaps a mix of their initials, a drop of blood, or a star or something?

Oh, it’s a burlap Voodoo doll. But the doll has a heart patch, so that’s sweet, I think. Check out the picture in this birthday tribute Kelly posted to Instagram, below:

Fox recently celebrated her 36th birthday in Las Vegas while there for the Billboard Music Awards with her fiancé. If you’re wondering if they did it in Sin City, the answer is yes. “An introvert in Vegas for three days during eclipse season…just SO much crying in the shower,” Fox wrote on an Instagram carousel from the trip, which included a screengrab of a text she sent to her stylist which says, “Was this blue outfit expensive because we just cut a hole in the crotch so we could have sex.” She also included a shrug emoji. Fox’s stylist replied, “I hate you,” with three crying laughing emojis. “I’ll fix it.”

So, are crotchless jumpsuits and doll tattoos going to be incorporated into the theme of the Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s upcoming nuptials? We know they want something extravagant and dark. And honestly, we’d be disappointed with anything less.

Megan Fox Celebrated Her 36th Birthday in Las Vegas in a Strapless Gold Minidress

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas—unless you are Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly. After all, this is the couple that freely shared that they cut a hole in her jumpsuit in order to have sex while in Las Vegas for the Billboard Music Awards. 

The Good Mourning co-stars often share moments from their outings together—no matter how privates—and the three days they were in Vegas were no different. From wearing $30,000 manicure to dedicating a song to their “unborn child,”the weekend was full of headline-worthy moments. And while in town, the engaged couple even held a pre-birthday celebration for Taurus Icon Megan Fox.

The Jennifer’s Body actor celebrated turning 36 by showing out in a strapless gold sequin minidress from AREA that featured a low-cut sweetheart neckline. Looking like a trophy, the birthday outfit was completed by a silver sparkle clutch and brown PVC closed-toe heels. Stylist Maeve Reilly worked alongside Fox to create a looks that made sure the birthday queen was center stage—even though she was in Vegas to support her fiancé.

Before the pair took over the party at Tao Las Vegas, they hit the Billboards red carpet where Colson Baker, a.k.a. MGK, shared that the night was 100% about Fox. “It’s my fiancée’s birthday at midnight so we are celebrating her wonderful night,” he said, per The Daily Mail. The New Girls actor added that MGK would be partying for both of them, saying, “I’m boring, I don’t drink, but I’m sure he’ll go off for me.” But based on the images shared to her Instagram account, Megan Fox was definitely not boring as she celebrated her 36th.

Here’s Why Bridgerton Season 3 Is Skipping to Penelope and Colin’s Love Story

Nicola Coughlan and Luke Newton stans, our time has come! Jess Brownell, the new show runner of Bridgerton season 3 as series creator Chris Van Dusen moves on to other projects, just revealed the thinking behind the surprise announcement that the upcoming season would focus on Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton’s romance, rather than following the book series order and centering Benedict. Yep, “Polin” is happening. And it’s going to be so cute.

“I really feel like it’s Colin and Penelope’s time,” Brownell told Variety. “Because we’ve been watching both of these actors on our screens since season 1, we’ve already invested in them a little bit. We know who they are as people.”

Brownell continued, “I feel like, especially in the last season, there are these moments of tension between them where it’s like, Colin walks up to the line of almost realizing that Penelope has feelings for him but doesn’t quite get there. Instead of treading water on that dynamic, we wanted to push it into their season. It really felt like the perfect moment to tee it up.”

It’s true. Colin spent the first season pining for Marina Thompson and the second getting over her. Penelope, of course, has been re-examining her role in her family and in society as Lady Whistledown. These two characters are very well developed and primed for the spotlight!

Brownell also assured fans that characters like Daphne, Kate, Anthony, and Benedict will still be active in Bridgerton season 3 as it is an “ensemble show.” Just don’t expect Colin to suddenly get all broody. “I think of Colin and Pen as being characters who bring a lot of comedy to the show,” Brownell said. “So I think we’re gonna get to play a lot of that this season. But I want to balance that out with quite a bit of sexiness and romance.” 

Yumi Nu: Seeing Someone Like Me on a SI Swimsuit Cover Has ‘Always Been Needed’

Just over a year after she made history as the first Asian, plus size model to appear in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, Yumi Nu is now on the magazine’s cover.

Nu, who appeared with her sister, Natalie Nootenboom, on Teen Vogue‘s May 2022 cover, is featured alongside Kim Kardashian, Ciara, and Maye Musk on the most recent SI Swimsuit cover. In addition to her recent Teen Vogue and SI Swimsuit covers, Nu, 25, has also appeared on the covers of both American and Japanese Vogue.

In an interview with People, Nu opened up about the impact that her cover appearance may have on young, plus size, Asian girls. She said seeing someone like her on the cover of SI Swimsuit when she was younger would have changed her life.

“I think my 13-year-old self had already been tainted by societal beliefs of what you need to look like to be on a cover. If she would’ve saw it before she saw anything else, I think she would have lived a different life with a different head space,” Nu told People. “That’s why this is important now and has always been needed.” 

Yumi Nu previously told Teen Vogue that she had a change in mindset around 2016, coming to terms with her body and accepting herself as she is.

“Even with my body, I was like, I’m so tired of not liking myself or waiting to be thinner, waiting to look a certain way to be happy with myself, so I just started embracing all sides of myself,” she said. While she acknowledged the negative role social media can play in body image, Nu said seeing people who looked like her on Instagram helped her accept her own body.

In an essay accompanying her SI Swimsuit photoshoot, Nu wrote about celebrating her body, and having it be accepted in a culture that historically has valued thinness.

“I’m second-generation Japanese American, and Japanese culture values being skinny, dainty and small. So for me to be on the cover of Vogue Japan meant being seen and being honored by a culture that often makes people with bigger bodies like mine feel invisible,” she wrote.

“Of course, it’s not just Japan where there’s a premium on being thin,” Nu continued. “Even here in the U.S., where a lot of the fashion industry has become more inclusive toward people with bodies like mine in the last few years, some people—for example, designers at certain high-fashion houses and dumb, angry guys on the internet, among others—just haven’t quite figured out yet that people who look like me belong everywhere everyone else does.”

Jessica Biel Says Her Candy Wig Reminds Her of a Special Someone

Not only was Jessica Biel acting alongside her husband Justin Timberlake in Hulu’s latest crime series Candy, but it looks like she was unconsciously channeling his old hair too. 

“It did look so similar,” the actor told E! News when comparing her look on the show to her husband’s iconic ‘90s ’do. “And then, [Justin] was like, ‘Well, wait a minute, you kinda look like my mom from the ’80s.’ And I said, ‘I kind of look like my grandmother from the ’80s.’ The perms were big.”

A quick look at Candy‘s trailer tells you all you need to know about the ‘80s murder drama, which was inspired by true events. The show follows Candy Montgomery, portrayed by Biel, who was put on trial for murdering her best friend after having an affair with her husband. While Biel’s strong southern accent and acting chops put her tightly in my personal race for the Best Actress category at the Emmys next year, so does her poodle-esque locks.

While Timberlake’s ramen boyband hair, courtesy of his ‘NSYNC days, didn’t serve as a direct inspiration for Biel’s wig on the show, the comparisons thrived nonetheless. Katie Ballard, the hair department head for Candy, tells Glamour it was crucial that Biel’s character was accurate to the ‘80s—including partaking in the over-the-top perming practices of the time. Ballard worked with Stacy Butterworth, Biel’s longtime wig maker, to make magic happen.
