From traditional ones to newer, innovative toys, these gadgets and devices give people the opportunity to explore and get creative with their pleasure.
Many people want to use sex toys, but it can be frustrating or cause gender dysphoria when the toys you’re looking at aren’t represented by people who look like you.
Society has been pushing for more conversation and understanding of people who fall outside the gender binary or aren’t cis-gendered. Many of these conversations are being spearheaded by people in the sex industry.
This means that a market that has often been marketed towards cis-gendered people is now becoming more inclusive.
So how do you find sex toys that are gender-affirming, innovative, and exciting?
We’ve got some ideas for you.
Here’s our round-up of the best sex toys for trans-masc people.
What Does Trans-Masc Mean?
If you’re reading this, you most likely identify with or have an idea of what trans masc means.
If not, no worries – we’ve got you covered.
Trans-masc is an umbrella term for non-cis-gendered people who fall on the masculine side.
This is people who were assigned female at birth (AFAB), and are trans-masc non-binary, transgender males, or somewhere on that spectrum.
Gender is nuanced and different for everyone, so this is just a general definition, but it may vary from person to person.
Now that you’ve had a refresher on what trans-masc is, let’s get into the good stuff.
Trans-Masc Sex Toys: What to Look For
As with anyone looking for sex toys, trans-masc people will all have their individual preferences.
Trans-masc people who have undergone gender-affirming physical changes like taking testosterone or getting a phalloplasty will also have different needs.
If this is you, and you’re exploring your sexual world with new or altered equipment – how cool!
There are some incredible toys out there waiting for you to try them.
Here are some of our favorites:
Hot pocket? Shot rocket? Shot pockets!
Shot pockets are basically miniature masturbation sleeves for people with enlarged clitorises – usually thanks to testosterone therapy, or who are naturally on the larger side.
There are other smaller masturbation sleeves on the market that are geared towards trans-masc people.
What an awesome innovation!
While this isn’t true for everyone, some trans-masc people may experience gender dysphoria or don’t like toys that offer penetration.
Vibrators are still an incredible option no matter what kind of anatomy you have.
Condoms on sex toys are a great way to prioritize your safety and sexual health when you’re sharing toys with someone, or multiple people *wink* *wink*.
Be sure to check if the lubricant on your condoms is safe to use with your sex toy. Generally, the kind of lube used on condoms is also compatible with sex toys that are made from materials like silicone, but it doesn’t hurt to double check!
Time to Experiment
Your sex life is a place for you to get creative, explore, and experiment. This is especially true if you’re a trans-masc person taking some new toys for a spin!
It might take some trial and error to find what works for you. Keep in mind that your needs might change, especially if you are doing continually gender-affirming treatments that are changing your body.
Give yourself the flexibility and space to try out new toys and sensations, whether that’s alone, or with a partner!
