But what are the benefits of choosing sex machines in a sea of adult toy options? And how do you know which one is best for your specific needs?
By the end of this guide, you’ll know all you need to know about these marvellous devices.

What is a Sex Machine?
Sex, or fuck machines tend to be larger than ordinary adult toys (though some are handheld).
They can stroke, vibrate, or thrust to bring you to orgasm by stimulating different body parts.
Most types of sex machines come with interchangeable attachments or a connective section that you can add different attachments to.
For this reason, they work for both men and women as you can attach many types of toys.
Some are specifically built for riding, known as “saddle” sex machines. Others offer both vibration and thrusting for various positions.
While all sex toys that have electronics in them are technically machines, sex machines differ because of the additional power and movement they offer.
When you’re using a vibrator, you’re the one doing the thrusting. A machine, on the other hand, can do this work for you. This means you won’t tire as quickly and the experience feels more lifelike.
From high-powered sexual experiences any time you want them to stamina without limits, it’s easy to see why these machines are a big hit. And there are tons of options out there.
One feature they all have in common, though, is their high-powered efficiency.
Keep in mind that since these love machines tend to be larger than traditional sex toys, they’re also less discreet. Bigger items are harder to hide, after all.
The Benefits of Using a Fuck Machine
What are the benefits of using a sex machine over just masturbating with your hands or having sex with a partner?
Let’s look at a few advantages below:
Getting to Know Yourself Sexually
Masturbation allows you to gain intimate knowledge about what turns you on. Not to mention that it’s a healthy habit to have!
While it’s possible to get this without a love machine, having a versatile toy with different settings and options opens up a whole new world of pleasure to you.
And the best part?
Increased sexual knowledge can improve your confidence. And, as you find out exactly what you like, you’ll be able to communicate it better to your partner.
Convenience and Control
While sex with a partner is great and there’s no substitute for it, sometimes you just want to get off without the extra steps that come with actual intercourse.
A sex machine gives you the option to do this any time (and in any way) you want.
You can control the points of pressure, speeds, thrusting styles, and more, depending on the model. It’s undeniably convenient to have this much control over your sexual experiences.
Greater Relationship Satisfaction
As I mentioned before, when you use toys by yourself, you’ll gain a greater understanding of what brings you the most pleasure.
Being able to communicate these needs to your partner will enable a stronger connection. And sex machines can be very arousing to watch your partner use, further adding to the satisfaction between you two.
In long-term relationships, the spark can go out as you and your significant other get used to each other. Introducing one of these products to the mix can revive your passion for each other.
Some people want sexual pleasure but don’t have the time to form a relationship. And others just don’t want to take the risks that come with having a partner.
With a sex machine, you can have a realistic sexual experience without the risk of heartache or contracting STDs. And for women, there’s no pregnancy risk to worry about.
Makes Long Distance Easier
Long distance relationships are difficult, as anyone who has ever been in one already knows.
But you don’t have to miss out on fulfilling erotic fun just because your partner is far away.
With a sex machine, you can have a satisfying and pleasurable experience, even if your lover is across the country (or ocean). It could even add a nicer view to your long-distance Skype sessions.
Practice for Sexual Encounters
If you’re not very experienced with sex, you may want an option for practicing before trying the real thing.
Here’s the deal:
Love machines offer a more realistic experience than simply using a dildo, since they provide the motion. With this type of device, you can close your eyes and get lost in realistic sensations.
The Complete Buying Guide
As with any other purchase, there are a number of factors to keep in mind before buying a sex machine.
Here are a few things to think about:
DIY vs. Ready to Use?
When you’re shopping for a sex machine, you’ll soon notice that many models require building before you can use them. If you enjoy putting stuff together, a DIY model could suit you well.
However, for other people, setup might be an extra hassle. So, before you choose a model, make sure it’s the right kind!
Build and Material Quality
When you’re using something in your delicate genital area, it’s important that the materials are safe.
Generally speaking, non-porous materials are best for insertable toys. Porous sex toys can easily become breeding grounds for bacteria if you aren’t meticulously careful.
For the portion of the machine that will be coming into contact with your genitals, choose something nonporous like silicone.
As far as the rest of the machine, reading user reviews is a good way to get an idea of build quality.
Sex machines aren’t very cheap, so you’ll want to read reports to see how long you can expect yours to last.
Some sex machines come with a piston-like device that you can add various attachments to, meaning you can switch it out if you feel like using something different.
Other options, like some types of saddle sex machines, come with the rideable portion as a non-removable part of the design.
If you think you might want a variety of experiences, make sure you get one that allows for versatility. Reading the product description is the best way to find this information.
Motor and Thrusting Power
These machines come in many different varieties, though each is meant to simulate sex in a particular style. Before you choose a product, look at the penetration depth it’s capable of.
You’ll also want to check whether or not it vibrates and how many setting options there are. While some customers might want a machine with tons of variety, others will be fine with a simpler design.
Sex machines are definitely among the most expensive toys you can get. While there are some cheaper models available, you’ll likely be making a sizable investment when you buy yours.
Think about what you’re willing to spend. Once you have a number in mind, you’ll narrow down your options for the best machine to buy.
Discretion and Storage
Would you rather be discreet about your adult toys? Do you have enough room in your closet for your sex machine?
These are a couple questions you’ll need to consider when it comes to privacy regarding your machine. While some are compact and easy to hide, others are heavier and larger.
Another issue to consider with discretion is noise. Read up on what previous customers are saying about how much noise a machine makes before you buy.
When you’re making a big investment, knowing the company’s return policy is a good idea. If your product ends up different than expected or defective in some way, you’ll need to know how to get a refund.
How to Use a Fucking Machine for Optimal Pleasure
Once you get your machine set up, it will be tempting to jump right into using it. But there are a few guidelines to follow to ensure you have the best experience possible:
- Use Plenty of Lube:
Whether you’re a man or a woman, keeping everything nice and slippery is the best way to have a mind-blowing experience with your sex machine.
Not only will using plenty of lubricant feel better, but it will also provide a protective barrier for your sensitive parts.
Without enough lube, there’s a risk that you’ll experience too much friction, which can cause chafing. I tend to favor water-based lubricants because they’re compatible with all sex toy materials.
- Have a Variety of Attachments:
A lot of sex machines allow you to swap out various attachments, from strokers to different types of dildos.
To optimize your pleasure, it’s best to have a collection of options available, so you can find out what suits you best.
I recommend having a few different sized dildos or a couple different types of male masturbators if you’re a guy. And if you’re into anal pleasure, opt for a smaller insertable attachment that’s suitable for butt stuff.
- Take Your Time Getting to Know the Machine:
Some machines are designed to stick to a flat surface such as a table. Before you use the device, test out the suction or stability to make sure it’s sturdy.
Apart from that, you can get to know the toy by testing out speeds, playing with the remote (if it has one) and seeing how fast it goes.
I especially recommend getting familiar with your machine if you plan to use it with a partner later.
That way, once you do so, you’ll already know how it works and won’t have to pause in the heat of the moment to consult the manual.
- Find a Suitable Spot to Use it:
Find a stable spot to use your sex machine where it won’t come unplugged or get knocked over in the middle of playtime.
The last thing you want is to be right on the edge of orgasm and then have something like this happen.
- Get Imaginative:
Having a sex machine is your chance to play out sexual fantasies that may be difficult otherwise. They can feel very lifelike, which makes your wildest imaginings seem more attainable.
Perhaps you’ve always wanted to try double penetration with your partner. A sex machine gives you a non-threatening way to do that, so don’t hold back with your imagination!
- Use a Rubber Mat:
If you have a hardwood floor, some sex machines will rumble against it and cause noise when they’re switched on.
Using a rubber mat or blanket can reduce this impact and help you maintain your privacy while you enjoy your toy.
Safety Tips Worth Mentioning
When you’re new to using a sex machine, you should carefully review the manufacturer’s safety information before you use it.
Anything you use in such a delicate area of the body should be approached with caution.
Here are some general safety guidelines to help you use your new toy as safely as possible:
- Buy From a Trusted Source:
The Internet is full of different products and separating quality toys from low-quality items can be tricky.
While it can be tempting to just buy the cheapest toy you can find, I caution against this. Using a bad item can be not only unsatisfactory but dangerous in a worst-case scenario.
Make sure you’re buying from a trusted brand with good reviews. At the end of this article, I’ll cover some key information about some of the top sex machine manufacturers to help you with this.
- Store the Machine Properly:
Storing your device properly is important for making sure it lasts as long as possible. Before putting it away, check that it’s completely dry.
If you’re going to put the machine away for a while, try to keep it out of extreme temperatures. As with all electronic devices, high or low temperatures can cause problems.
- Always Sanitize:
You should wash the insertable parts of your sex machine before and after every use. This will prevent bacteria from building up and potentially causing an infection.
Most toys are safe to wash with water and gentle soap. You can also use a special sex toy cleaner for the job. You can read my guide on how to clean sex toys for more information on safe sanitation.
Types of Sex Machines
Sex machines have been around for a long time, so there are plenty of different models available out there.
The categories below won’t cover every type of device, but most on the market should fall into one of these categories.
A saddle-style machine is a vibrating device that you can ride. They typically come with varying vibration speeds and have a soft seat for the rider’s comfort.
While these types of devices are super powerful and pleasurable, they’re also quite noisy. If you use one on top of carpet (rather than a harder surface), it should be more discreet, though.
The saddle typically has a dildo attachment with textures designed to stimulate the vagina, clitoris, and sometimes anal area.
These types of sex machines are usually powered by a remote control. You can use it yourself or let your partner control it and enjoy the view!
Thrusting sex machines, also known as thrusters, provide backward and forward motions instead of vibrations. They come in different sizes and variations, from non-portable to handheld.
While handheld ones are easier to clean, larger machines predictably deliver more power. Stand-up thrusting sex machines can be set on the floor or a table.
They tend to come with a rod at the end that you can attach various sex toys to. This versatility is one of the major benefits of this type of sex machine.
If you do decide to go with this kind of device, make sure you select the right penetration depth for your needs.
Also known as masturbators, strokers are a male sex toy that have a hollow tube designed to stroke your penis. The hollow channel typically has special grooves or textures inside designed to deliver incredible pleasure.
Strokers are usually small, hand-held toys that are either designed to look like body parts (vaginas, mouths, or anuses) or have a non-anatomical design.
The right type to get depends on your preferences.
Would you rather have a more realistic visual experience when you masturbate? Or do you prefer the discretion of a non-anatomical design that doesn’t look like a sex toy?
The 5 Best Sex Machines for Different Needs
Now that we’ve reviewed some of the general types of sex machines available out there, it’s time to review the best pick for different needs.
Here are my top 5 choices:
1. Best Small Pick - The Hide-a-Cock 5.0
The Hide-a-Cock 5.0 Sex Machine uses stainless steel for a durable, sleek design and uses quiet slide technology for discretion. It comes with an adjustable speed (choose between 0 to 250 strokes per minute) and a remote control.
To change the speed, simply turn a dial to find the best setting for your pleasure. The sex machine has a low-profile design that works perfectly for missionary and other positions.
This device is small so it’s easy to hide when you aren’t using it. You can choose between 1 and 5 inches for the depth of stroke. Tools aren’t required for changing the setting.
The Hide-a-Cock 5.0 can be used by either males or females. It comes with optional accessories including a Blow Job Kit and Universal Dildo Holder.
2. Best Saddle Option - The Cowgirl Premium
The Cowgirl Premium Remote and App Controlled Riding Machine comes with multiple vibration models and a 360-degree swivel feature. It has two silicone attachments to choose between, along with a slip-resistant base.
The padded seat makes riding the Cowgirl Premium nice and comfortable. The machine comes with a multi-functional LED remote on a cord. Or you can connect the device to the Cowgirl app to play wireless.
You may connect the machine to your partner’s device and interact in real time. The Cowgirl Premium has 6 vibration patterns and various speeds to choose from.
Keep in mind that you can’t return this sex machine if you’ve opened the internal packaging or used it.
3. Best Machine for Thrusting - The Hismith Premium Machine
The Hismith Premium Sex Machine is a wire-controlled device with a realistic, soft dildo included. It uses a high-powered motor to deliver strong, mind-blowing thrusts.
You can adjust the angle to hit your spots perfectly and the machine is easy to put together, use, and take apart to store. The rods on this device are sturdy and made with solid steel.
The machine itself is heavy enough to stay in place but using it on carpet is better for grip. The Hismith Premium Sex Machine comes in discreet packaging to avoid awkwardness.
The motor on the Hismith Premium is strong and reliable, while the material on the included dildo is high-quality and body safe.
Keep in mind:
You can adjust the thrust depth on the device for different sensations but starting with medium depth is best.
4. Best High-End Model - The Shockspot 12 Inch Fucking Machine
If you’d like to invest in an expensive, high-end sex machine, look no further. The Shockspot 12 Inch Fucking Machine is a high-tech device with massive thrusting depth (12 inches).
The device also comes in two other models; a double penetration option and an 8-inch version. Note that when your Shockspot sex machine arrives in the mail, you’ll have to put it together before you can use it.
Unlike many other sex machines, the Shockspot also offers vibrations with the thrusting motions.
This device allows you to program customized patterns using the included app. Or you can use it hands-free for a realer experience.
The Shockspot comes with a remote that you can use to deepen penetration for an exciting and varied experience. Program it for deep strokes, short and jerky motions, or somewhere in between.
It’s important to note that this machine does make noise, so it’s not as discreet as other adult toys.
However, most people will find the powerful functions and versatility worth the tradeoff.
5. Best Stroker Machine for Men - The Kiiroo Onyx 2
A must-have item for every man who wants to be able to provide himself pleasure anytime, a stroker (male masturbator) should be in your sex toy repertoire.
The company Kiiroo creates extremely high-end male masturbators. This model is currently rated as our best male sex toy of the year!
The Onyx 2, along with all of Kiiroo's toys are very high-tech. If you want a basic masturbator then consider one of the recommended pocket pussies here.

Where Can I Buy a Sex Machine?
The Internet is so full of brands and products that even a simple Google search on which machine to buy can be overwhelming.
To make your life easier, I’ve compiled some of the best online resources for buying a sex machine.
The largest online retailer in the U.S., Amazon is an intuitive, easy-to-use website. When you’re searching on Amazon, you can sort for-sale items by pricing (low to high), average customer ratings, featured items, and more.
My favorite part of shopping with Amazon is the sheer number of options you have with different products. If you've never bought a sex toy on Amazon, you will be surprised at how many products they offer in the erotic category.
Plus, the way they sort their reviews makes it easy to read both the positive and negative responses of past customers. This helps with making an informed purchase.
For customer service, Amazon has a virtual messaging assistant where you can find answers to many typical order questions. If the answer doesn’t exist there, the assistant can direct you to the correct department.
Alternatively, you can have someone from Amazon call you after giving some details about the problem.
If you need to return an item to Amazon, you can do so within 30 days. Just make sure you read the return and refund policy closely for the specific item to know what the terms are.

If, for some reason, your package is returned to the company, you’re responsible for return and shipping charges. However, you can contact the company before you order to make other arrangements, if need be.
Another important factor to keep in mind is that Ken’s Twisted Mind doesn’t accept returns or provide refunds for any reason.
If you receive a defective item, they’ll replace it with the same product within 15 days of your order receipt.
Shockspot manufactures their sex machines in the U.S. and builds them with stringent product testing to assure quality.

Based in Amsterdam, Kiiroo is a quickly-growing tech company that specializes in sex toys. They’ve been on the scene since 2013 and are always innovating their existing product repertoire.
Kiiroo’s website is simple and well-organized. When you order from them, they will process it right away, but it takes between 3 and 5 business days for them to receive an order.
