For people who love squirting orgasms – or want to experiment with them – a sex machine is just the kind of stimulation that’s likely to get you there.
They’re Big … Or Most of Them Are
For all their power, sex machines tend to be big, hulking devices. They look like ugly footstools and – thanks to their powerful motors – tend to sound like, well, machines. In other words, you won’t be able to hide your mechanical masturbating from your housemates … or possibly even your neighbors. Depending on the size of your digs, storage can be an issue too.
That said, there are some exceptions. Velvet Co, for example, makes handheld, thrusting sex machines that deliver 140 thrusts per minute but can fit into a box or bedside drawer with your other sex toys.
The Jackie Velvet Thruster is a portable sex toy with major power you can hold in your hand.
One reason even your most sex-positive friends probably don’t own a sex machine is that most of them cost, like, a month’s rent. Seriously. Rideable sex machines tend to go for at least $1,000. And while we’re all for investing in your sexual pleasure, that kind of investment is a level of luxury masturbating few can afford. If you think sex machines are your jam, maybe it’s something to aspire to. In the meantime, you can always look into a cheaper option, like the thrusting hand-held sex machines from Velvet Co, which retail for about $200.
They Can Be … Awkward
If you read any review about rideable sex machines online, like this one, or this one, what you'll discover is that these machines can be quite awkward. This isn’t to say they aren’t fun, but riding a dick without a person attached to it has a bit of a learning curve. (Where do you put your hands? How do you control the depth of penetration?) This is because most sex machines tend to require that you position your body to the toy, rather than vice versa. If riding a toy isn’t your thing, or you want a bit more flexibility, one of the newer handheld sex machines might be more your style, especially if it has a flexible shaft, which can make holding it and getting the right angle much more comfortable.
Riding a dick without a person attached to it has a bit of a learning curve.
A lot of sex toys designed in recent years are designed to be small, discreet and silent. Not sex machines. They’re loud and proud and – much like a lot of electronics that hail from the 1980s – they’re built to fucking last. (Or, you know, the other way around.) This is partly a side-effect of trying to build a super-powerful motor; the more powerful it is, the less likely it is that your masturbation sessions will max it out. In other words, because these toys pride themselves in having more power than most people could ever need (or handle), they’re more able to hold up to whatever task you put them to. How's that for an endorsement?
Sex machines aren't for everyone, but if you're into power, they're definitely worth considering. Each brand and model is a bit different but no matter which one you choose, there's one thing we can say for sure: you're in for quite a ride.
