A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, conducted by Indiana University found that 45% of men aged between 18-60 years had used a vibrator.

The study found that not only is vibrator use common, but vibrator use is associated with more positive sexual function and being more proactive in caring for one's sexual health.

Participants scored themselves high in satisfaction levels for erectile dysfunction, sexual satisfaction, orgasmic function and sexual drive. Men who used sex toys were also more likely to participate in sexual health-promoting behaviours such as testicular self-examinations.

Sex toys have long been considered to be an industry designed to cater for women, but more men are coming to realise that many of these modern devices are designed to improve their sexual health.

The improved shapes, designs, sizes and quality of male sex toys has lead to a boom of products designed for men and available online and in sexual wellness stores.

Increased Stamina and Libido

If you are suffering from low sex drive (libido), this usually means that some other part of your life is in need of attention.

Things like stress, lack of essential vitamins, poor diet, lack of exercise, and lack of self-esteem can lower your libido.

Other ways to improve your libido: 

● Staying Active: Keep in mind that act of sex requires using your cardiovascular system. Your heart and lungs are part of the act. Improve your sex drive and sexual performance by keeping fit by doing regular exercise. Current government guidelines recommend we do moderate exercise for 15 to 20 mins, 5 days a week. Activities like swimming, jogging, HIIT are great ways to improve your cardio.

● Healthy Diet: A healthy diet is a key factor in keeping your body running in tip-top shape. Many processed foods and takeaway have a negative effect on mood and energy levels. Keeping your body nourished regularly with fresh fruits, vegetables, grass-fed meat, and fish are essential.

● Vitamin Supplements: Many of our foods are lacking in essential vitamins and nutrients. As a result, most people take vitamin supplements to balance their body's requirements. A multi-vitamin supplement can be a great way to get missing vitamins and minerals into your body.

We should consume at least 500mg of DHA a day, which can be found in quality fish oil supplements, According to Dr. Andrew Huberman, neuroscientist, tenured professor, and principal investigator/head of the Huberman Lab in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He’s also the host of a popular podcast called The Huberman Lab, in which he provides free health advice generated from the latest health research and studies.

Make sure you’re getting these mostly correct. You don’t need to be perfect. Trust me; I’m far from it. Always consult your doctor before taking any supplicants.

● Reduce Stress: Stress and your internal mental state have an enormous effect on your libido, and overall wellbeing. Too much stress and negative self-talk lowers your self-esteem and can cause conditions like erectile dysfunction, and impact your mental health and sexual performance.

● Practice Good Habits: Excessively drinking alcohol and smoking are bad habits that can adversely impact your sexual performance. Replace these habits with good ones like eating well and exercise to improve your libido.

Better Sleep

When it comes to our well-being, getting quality sleep is vital. It lowers anxiety and depression, boosts our cognitive skills, strengthens our immune systems, repairs our body, and heightens our libido.

According to an author and Director of Clinical Education for The Sexual Health Alliance, Dr. Chris Donaghue, masturbation and sex can help with restlessness and insomnia. Sex and masturbation release feel-good hormones like dopamine, endorphins, oxytocin, increases testosterone in men, reduces stress and increases our sense of calm.  

Many studies report that men sleep better after sexual activities, and using masturbation aids like the autoblow can help you practise penetrative sex and help achieve orgasm more effectively and quickly.

Healthy Heart

As mentioned, sexual intercourse is an excellent way to exercise your cardiovascular system. Which in turn increases your metabolism, blood flow, and heart rate. Sex aids also help to maintain healthy testosterone levels and lower blood pressure.

Having sex is an excellent idea to fight cardiovascular diseases. According to a study, sexually active men are unlikely to die of heart problems compared to men who don't engage in regular sexual pleasure.

Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction can happen to anyone, regardless of age and gender. It can be related to emotional or physical factors and can be both very frustrating and depressing not being able to reach orgasm.  

The good news is that sex toys can help both men and women dealing with sexual dysfunction. Research has found that sex toys can help with common issues like performance anxiety and erectile dysfunction.  

Male masturbation toys and penis rings are the major players in male sex toys designed to help sexual dysfunction and improved sexual function. Both devices are showing to be great in assisting to improved function and increased pleasure.


Practice makes perfect! Many men who use adult toys report being happier and more satisfied with their sex life.
