With sex, pleasure and masturbation being a taboo topic in India, sex toys in India don’t fall far from it! With the rapid developments in technology, sex toys are made to deliver utmost pleasure in all kinds of ways, and the increasing acceptance of oneself has enabled people to love their bodies, accept their desires and urges, and ditch the guilt when it comes to pleasure! The sex toy market is a clear indicator of the same – currently booming, adult toys in India are becoming more popular by the day! What’s the first image or word that pops up in your mind when you hear ‘sex toy’? We’re guessing it’s mostly a dildo or a vibrator (toys popular among vulva-owners). Admittedly, there’s a fair share of variety for female users, as well as great interest and response from their end. You may wonder ‘Do men use sex toys too?’ – you already know the answer is yes, but read on to know more about it!
Are men using sex toys?
We did some digging online, through various statistics and asked around, here’s what we found – while most cities do have female buyers overpowering the male, men are not too far behind when it comes to purchasing and using sex toys. As per a survey, of all buyers of sex toys online, 65% are men. Moreover, the increasing collection of male sex toys online indicates that there is a rather significant customer base to cater to! Another survey also indicated similar figures, with close to 60% of men buying and using sex toys.
That’s just the big picture, however, on a smaller scale, we asked our male friends about how comfortable they are with the idea of using a sex toy, if they own one already, and what are the reasons why they don’t own one yet. We found that most men were comfortable with the idea of using sex toys, and said they would love to try them out. The ones who did own sex toys were already having a gala time (read more about that in the next section), while there were multiple reasons for not owning one – they didn’t know where to hide their toys, they were still confused about which was the suitable toy for them, they haven’t found a trusted seller yet, or they are unsure about the legalities and some were just hesitant to try them out! If you too have these doubts and questions, we have a solution for each one of them in our blog section!
Why are men using sex toys?
The simpler, obvious and short answer is ‘pleasure’! Most of the men we spoke to use sex toys simply to enhance their pleasure and improve the masturbation experience. That’s not all, there are multiple reasons that motivate men to use sex toys – not having a sexual partner, mutual masturbation with a partner, to experience different sensations, to satisfy their desires and fantasies, or for heightened stimulation. Those who are exploring their sexuality and sexual preferences, try out various sex toys to find out what they like and what they don’t. Moreover, the increasing availability of sex toys in India and easy access to sex toys for men online makes it simpler for men to get one and try it out!

While the prostate gland is usually accessed through the anus, you can try massaging the perineum as well to light stimulate it.
