This article first goes into the meaning of the different product names and then goes into how to chose the right masturbator.

Table of Contents

There are many names for masturbators, here is a list and explanation so you no longer need to be confused about the differences:

Onaholes

People who don’t know much about the topic sometimes call them hentai fleshlight, anime masturbator or Japanese masturbator. Onaholes is the correct name for the Japanese variety of male strokers. Japan has for a long time been on the cutting edge of sex toy technology. They are so recognized in the west that they even go under their own name – Onahole. Onaholes are a great choice when you are looking for male strokers.

Meiki Onahole

A Meiki Onahole is a subcategory of Onaholes. They are 100% focused on copying the feeling of the real thing, the vagina. Onaholes on the other hand can be any (new) experience.

Masturbator, Pocket Pussy, Penis Stroker, Masturbation Sleeves & Fleshlight

What is a pocket pussy? What are penis strokers etc. They are all different names for the same thing actually. A sex toy that brings you pleasure by putting your penis in it. They are general standard words used for all the non-Japanese, non-Onahole male strokers. There is no difference between the words except for Fleshlight, which is a brand name and not a product category name like all the others mentioned.

How to choose the right penis stroker

Male strokers must feel good when you use them, right? All manufacturers want you to feel good when you use their masturbators. But everyone has different preferences, and just because one person likes a particular masturbator does not mean everyone else will like the same masturbator.

That's why it is very difficult to purchase a masturbator that will meet or even exceed your expectations. You probably read reviews when you purchase masturbators, but those reviews do not guarantee that your opinion about those masturbators will be the same.

So, I am going to write some basics about masturbators which might help you when you purchase the next masturbator.

What determines whether or not a particular masturbator feels good is, I think, a combination of the following 4 things.

  1. Material
  2. Strength of suction
  3. Thickness of skin or wall
  4. Interior texture

Masturbator Material

The materials commonly used for masturbators are soft, rubbery, various trademarked ‘feel real’ blends. An elastomer blend is the most popular because of the incredible suppleness and skin-like feel they provide. Male masturbators, whether they are sleeves, boobs, butts or whatever the shape they are in, are always made of something soft.

Fleshlight has their material patented and named it Super skin. Another famous material type is Cyberskin by Topco Sales. Tomax has Succubus skin. One of the most reputable Japanese company, Toy's Heart, has Baby skin and Safe skin. Whatever they want to call their material, they are all made of some type of elastomer which is soft, elastic, rubbery, supple, and feels good when you touch them, squeeze them, and rub your penis against them.

Each company adds some super secret additives and / or mix some different types of elastomer to create unique texture, color, smell, and firmness.

It is impossible to find out which company's material is the best match for you by reading. This is something that you have to take a risk and purchase, and find out if you like it or not for yourself. Some retailers actually let you touch the material if asked nicely. So, going to retailers near you might be a good idea.

Strength of suction

Masturbators can be categorized into 3 different styles, and those are:

  1. Open end style
  2. Closed end style
  3. What the hell is this style

Fun Factory Cobra Libre is the example of ‘what the hell is this' style. If someone gives me the Cobra Libre without explaining what it is for, I wouldn't know what it is for.

Open end style masturbators have openings on both sides. Benefit of that is you can insert from both ends and experience a different kind of sensation. Also, if your penis is longer than the length of a masturbator, open end style works better than closed end style for obvious reasons, no need to worry about hitting the end of hole. What's lacking in open end style is that there is no suction effect at all.

Closed end style masturbators on the other hand have only one opening and can provide a more pleasurable suction than open end style.

Venus masturbator and Meiki series masturbator are closed end. In fact, most masturbators on the market use closed end design. Some people say that closed end masturbators are difficult to clean. I think that once you get used to turning them inside out , it's not that difficult. I talk about how to clean closed end masturbators in the Masturbator Maintenance section.

The thickness of the skin or wall

When you look at an ‘economy class’ masturbator, they tend to have a thinner wall. Masturbator material isn’t exactly cheap. As a result, less expensive masturbators have a thinner wall, and expensive ones are much thicker.

When the wall is thin, what happens is that when you enter the masturbator, the wall spreads outward. Thus, the masturbator does not provide as much tightness.

When the wall is thick, the price goes up, but when you enter the shape of the masturbator, it remains relatively the same and it feels good because of the proper pressure on your entire penis.

Those are the reasons why expensive masturbators are big, heavy, and have thicker walls.

So why do Fleshlight-style masturbators feel good even though they have a thinner wall? It's because of their hard plastic case. The case prevents the inner sleeve from spreading out too much and gives you enough pressure. If you use a Fleshlight masturbator without its case, you would feel a dramatic difference.

Interior Texture

I really don't have much to say about interior texture because it's 100% up to your preference. There are so many masturbators on the market, and they all have different textures. And even if two masturbators have exactly the same interior texture, stimulation would be different when the material, firmness, or thickness of the wall are made differently. Succubus masturbator and Venus masturbators offer three different levels of firmness of the same interior texture.
