What to consider when choosing a sex machine

Spread the love

When we think about sex toys, the first things that come to mind are probably dildos and vibrators. That’s perfectly fine since both these toys are classics. Nevertheless, there is so much more to masturbation than phallic toys that vibrate in your hands and eventually make you come. We’re here to explore sex machines, and here’s what you should keep in mind before getting one.

What is a sex machine?

We’re sure you’ve seen porn where actors and actresses use machines for sex. Most of the time, these devices go hand-in-hand with some sort of bondage play, but they’re not only for BDSM enthusiasts. The idea of mixing flesh and technology is nothing new. Many people have fantasized about it over the years. Still, what are these monstrous kinky contraptions about, and how do they work?

Well, a sex machine is a mechanical device that’s way bigger than your average monster dildo or rabbit vibrator. It uses numerous components to thrust, vibrate, or even stroke your body while you use it on your erogenous zones. Most of these mechanical instruments have seats for you to sit on while they work your body.

They are a great way to incorporate Dom/sub role-play since one of the partners controls the vibration intensities while the other lies on it, somewhat haplessly. Fuck machines predate modern times by many years. However, the way we know them today is mostly due to electrical inventions of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Back then, physicians would use sex machines to “treat” female hysteria.

DIY or works out of the box

Seeing how most sex machines cost real money, some people tend to make their own. But making a DIY fuck mechanism isn’t for everyone. Not only do you need to have experience in engineering, but you’ll also need additional time and money to buy all the parts and make them work the way they should.

Therefore, it’s easy to understand why most kinksters simply buy a preset machine with various features and options. No matter what you choose, you’ll need to spend money. So, if you’re not an engineering genius, we’d strongly suggest that you purchase one straight from the box. It’s just simpler.

Material quality

Another important thing to look out for when shopping for a sex machine is manufacturing quality. Buying something that will serve as your source of sexual pleasure shouldn’t be taken lightly. You’re going to use it on yourself, meaning that bad quality can impact the overall enjoyment or, even worse, your safety.

You should only consider premium-quality materials — leather, silicone, and stainless steel. They’ll also mean that you’ll have an easier time cleaning water-based lube and body fluids off your machine once your kinky session is over. But if you intend to buy online, check other customers’ reviews to see if some of them had any complaints too.

High-tech or old school?

There’s a big debate between fans whether one should opt for modern tech or a classic, vintage thruster. But we can’t help you with that — there’s no definite answer. It all depends on your taste and preferences.

Still, you can play with the “Cowgirl” from anywhere in the world. That means that you can use it while your hubby’s on the far side of the world, and he’ll be able to control the machine with an app on his phone.

But Wi-Fi isn’t the only positive of modern fuck machines. Some of them (“Fleshlight Launch”) use VR for additional fun. That way, intensities and patterns you see on your VR headset will be replicated onto your machine.

Buy online or in an actual shop?

Sometimes, buying simple sex toys like cock rings, butt plugs, or anal beads is harder than you think. Why? Well, going into the actual shop isn’t the simplest of things for most people. The stigma that surrounds adult gadgets is so big that most feel immoral for even being near the entry door, let alone buying a full-on fuck machine.

So, if you don’t feel comfortable going into the shop yourself, you can always buy your fuck contraption online. But where? Well, the internet is full of such items, so you can always look for them on Amazon or any other shopping site. We usually get ours from LG online store since they have a huge collection of sex machines. Our favorite is their rotating dildo! Their user experiences and reviews will help you more than you’d think, so be sure to check them out before purchasing.

What kind of sex machines are out there?


In short, saddles are machines you mount and sit on. They have numerous add-ons you can attach for your enjoyment (grinding or penetration). But some of them can be pretty loud and might turn you off. Nevertheless, you should check some of these out — Sybian, Cowgirl, and Motorbunny.


Unlike the previous machine, gliders don’t use electricity. You mount it and use your body to trigger the contraption into motion. In some way, gliders are great for a workout too. One of our favorites is certainly the XR Brands/Lovebotz. Do check it out.


Just like the name says, thrusters simply thrust. It’s all automatic, and you can find all sorts of different types of this machine. From “drilldos” to free-standing ones, there’s a huge variety on the market. Still, we suggest that you check out the “KTM Sex Machine” and “Shockspot.”


Once again, the names of fuck machines are pretty much self-explanatory. And in this case, strokers stroke automatically. From slow and gentle to fast and vigorous, these boys can provide you with all sorts of stroking sensations. Our picks would be the “Venus 2000” and the now-famous “Fleshlight Launch.”
