    Would love to see your reviews on male sex toys and do as good a job as you did on women’s sex toys. I feel the male gender is being left out on purpose about sex toys. One hears a great deal about women’s pleasure and the best ways to achieve her pleasure, yet very little to zero is written about male pleasure and how to achieve it’ll. For example. It is written both males and females have verve endings on the clitoris and penis. However it is hardly mentioned the clitoris has app 8000 nerve endings to the 4000 nerve endings on the male penis. But yet apparently everything I’ve read says the clitoris is more important than A penis.

    Dear Joan, finally someway to voice my opinion on sex toys. I just joined in the last hour or so, so bare with me please. In your above statement you admitted there were more sex toys for women than men. I have often wondered why that is..not only do women get a more variety of sex toys but a better quality than men get. For instance on quite a few blogs I have read, the writer states the toy called the flesh light is NOT built to last. With that said, a lot more male sex toys are most likely built the same way. Not to last.i feel women who want men to try a sex toy is just helping him waste his money on a toy that won’t last.

      Lonn, Shamus MacDuff is doing a great job reviewing high-quality sex toys for penises right here on this blog: Read them before you pass judgment on male sex toys. Hot Octopuss and Fun Factory, especially, do a stellar job. You’ll see their products reviewed here.

      • Lonn Hoffman on January 1, 2021 at 3:07 pm

        Joan, I’m sure Mr Macduff is well qualified to review male sex toys. However his is only one opinion. My research is from many sources including doctors. Not saying his examples are built with materials that are toxic as some have stated. Aside from that why are there many more and a better variety of sex toys for women than men.? I have suggested directly to the makers of Syrian saddle machine they add a female attachment for the left out straight males. Have never gotten a response from them. It’s like they’re dilibretly ignoring straight males in favor of the female gender.

          Lonn, I don’t understand your combative tone. I do not permit reviews of toxic products on my blog, and I don’t know what your complaint is with Shamus MacDuff’s reviews. Have you tried the products he recommends? As for Sybian, this product is made for vulva owners and people of any gender that enjoy the way the Sybian is made and the attachments that come with it. If you’re asking Sybian to make a product that penises can penetrate, they already do: Venus for Men

    Dear Joan,

    I am a married 70 year old male. I am interested in learning of sex toys for males in enhancing orgasm. Do you have a seminar or videos discussing various toys for men? My wife has no interest in toys for herself.

    Thanks, Paul

      Thanks for asking. “My Sex Toys for Seniors” webinar discusses more vulva toys than penis toys, but you can read Shamus MacDuff’s reviews of great penis toys using this link: Keep scrolling down and choosing “older posts” when you get to the end of each set.
