The Hard Facts About The "First" Male Vibrator

Don't let the suave British speaker in the video below distract you. He's describing a new sex toy specifically designed for men — one that's being billed as the so-called "first male vibrator." But, while the Hot Octopuss Pulse II definitely presents exciting developments in male-sex-toy technology, it's just another in a long line of sex toys for men. Let's plunge right in and see what the fanfare is all about.

For starters, the way the toy vibrates is intended to feel different, and potentially better, than other vibrating sex toys for men. Inspired by devices designed to help men with spinal injuries have children, the Pulse II uses oscillators to vibrate. Although this is sort of how it got its reputation as the "first" male vibrator, it's actually just the first masturbator that oscillates — not the first oscillating device ever to be used on a penis.

The Pulse II comes in two different versions, the Solo and the Duo, for masturbation or couples play. Unlike a typical penis ring, it can be used on a completely flaccid penis. So, not only does it finish you off; it can get you going, too.

Let it be known: The Pulse II is certainly something special, but calling it the first male vibrator is a bit of an overstatement. What would make the Pulse II really significant is if it manages to make male sex-toy use go mainstream. Right now, it's still a rare thing for a man to be open to, let alone up-front about, using anything other than his hand when engaging in solo play.
