YES! You’re going to want to use lube with your male stroker, but you’ve got to make sure you use the right kind!
Have you ever tried putting your dick in a woman who wasn’t wet? You just have to kinda jam it in there, and hope for the best, right? Well when you’re using a male stroker, it’s never wet on its own, AND it’s not made out of human flesh. While the cyberskins, TPE and silicone materials they use are pretty realistic, they’re still man made materials and putting your cock inside of there without any lubricant isn’t going to feel good.
So in short? YES. You’re going to want to use a lubricant. You have to remember that a male stroker is designed to give you a nice, snug fit to simulate that of a real sexual encounter. A lot of them are made to create a suction feeling around your cock as well, for ultimate pleasure. Now imagine that you’ve got your cock in there and it’s rubbing back and forth against these different materials, and it’s bone-dry. Yeah, not going to feel good. Plus, adding that lubricant is going to increase the realism of the experience – because any good sexual encounter is nice and moist, am I right?
Which type of lube should you use for your male stroker?
If you’re not overly familiar with lube, then you’re likely not going to realize that there are many different types of lube out there from warming lube to flavored, and of course – they are made of different materials. The three main types of lube are water-based, oil-based and silicone-based. Oil and silicone-based lubes are generally thicker and stickier (if you like that sort of thing) but they also have the potential to damage some toys depending on what material they are made of.
If your toy is made of silicone, then definitely STAY AWAY FROM silicone-based lubes – they will quickly break down the surface of the super-smooth silicone material, and make your toy far less enjoyable. Some people will say that they use oil-based lubes with silicone toys, but I’ve had bad experiences with that in the past. The best way to ensure that you don’t damage your toy is by using a WATER-BASED lubricant ONLY.
Sure, water-based lubes need to be applied more often, but if you can ensure that you’re not damaging your toy – it’s worth it. Plus, silicone and especially oil-based lubes can be a real pain to clean up! Instead of washing away, it’s almost like they just spread themselves around. So as far I’m concerned, water-based is the only way to go!
What’s the best brand of lube for your male stroker?
Honestly, the brand doesn’t really matter much. Most places where you can buy your male stroker will have some type of water-based lube in stock, so you’re usually pretty safe to just buy whatever that website or store is selling. You might find some lubes out there that doesn’t really specify what type of lube it is – and you’ll definitely want to steer clear of those! They’re typically knock-off brands that can’t really be trusted, so just make sure it’s clear what you’re buying, and you’ll be fine!
But my best piece of advice? Go heavy on the lube! Especially if you’re just trying your toy out for the first time! It’s way better to have too much lube and have a nice slippery ride, than to rub against it too much and have a sore cock when you’re done. Once you get used to your toy, and your lube, you can start to adjust. But when in doubt? More lube is ALWAYS better!
