The most popular sex toys for gay guys?

Published

on

I caught up with Steve Callow, CEO of Perfect Fit Brand — they make sex toys.

What was the first sex toy you ever used?

The first toy I ever used, I made myself! I was always a very mechanically-oriented guy. I won science fair awards, and would build things all day long. After puberty, I started playing around making masturbation devices out of bicycle inner tubes and electric motors. I even made a dildo one day out dipping a dowel into melted wax — that’s how they taught me how to make candles in school!. For years that dildo was in my closet!

I was 20 when I bought my first sex toy — it was at the Pink Pussy Cat in NYC, from a lady behind the counter. I was so embarrassed to be in the store. Everything was behind the counter. My eyes were wide open with fascination. Not knowing what to buy, I bought the smallest thing I saw. It was a tiny tiny butt plug — about the size of my finger. The lady kept asking me if I was sure, she said it would be too small. I bought it anyway.

What made you decide to go into the sex toy business?

I didn’t come from this industry. As a kid, I grew up in Halifax, Canada, where I worked in yachting chandleries and auto-part stores. That’s how I paid my way through university. However, in university I started a computer business, which I developed into a network specialty company. I was lucky to be pursued by the partnership that became Accenture — the world’s largest consulting firm. By the time I was 25, I was already a senior manager at Accenture in Toronto.

I ended up in New York City, and then 911 happened. It was a difficult time, and I decided to seek a less stressful life and moved to Florida, with savings and lots of experience. That didn’t last too long as I couldn’t get a green card without the job I had, so I moved back to Toronto. Back in Toronto I had a kind of epiphany one day — I realised I had all the skills to make and market my own inventions and I had some ideas — including the StreemMaster invention, my first product. I jumped in and went for it.

Which is the most popular sex toy for gay guys?

Our Hump Gear line is by far one of the most successful gay sex toys of all time. It’s the world’s first butt plug that can be used for penetration — a fuckable butt plug.

What sort of feedback do you get from your customers?

My favourite was a customer who wrote in to tell me that, after using the Fat Boy Thin, his wife had orgasmed during intercourse for the first time in 20 years.

A lot of the new sizing we’re offering — on everything from cock rings to the trans sex toys we’ve developed — is directly due to feedback from customers. We’re very serious about feedback.

For the Xact-Fit cock rings we did extensive, corporate-style, focus group testing.

What are some of the latest developments in sex toys that gay guys should be looking out for?

We developed a new cock ring sizing system that’s on its way to becoming the standard. We determined that we had to make rings that are only 0.1” apart in sizing to get rings that would fit perfectly. The new rings are call Xact-Fit, and come in fourteen sizes, whereas other manufacturers make only three to five sizes in the same range. We made them not too stretchy, so the rings are effective, but easier to get on and off than a metal ring. Our Play Zone kit contains the nine most-used Xact-Fit sizes for shaft rings, ball rings, and cock-and-ball rings stacked on a mini orange traffic cone. It’s been a huge hit.

Another development to watch for is the evolution of anal toys. Just as we developed the first Tunnel Plugs, which are hollow, the next frontier is vibration and new motor technology. We’re always inventing new products, such as the Buck-Off, The Bumper, and the Play Zone, and we have more innovative products in the works.

If I hadn’t used a sex toy before, but I was interested in trying something out, what would you suggest that I start with?

That’s a very personal thing. Every man should experience prostate stimulation. Also, using a stroker device is a lot of fun.

Everything You Need to Know About Penis Augmentation

Life happens only once, and imagine that you’re not satisfied with the size of your penis. In the past, you simply had to live with it, perhaps having difficulties getting someone into bed or always having self-esteem issues. However, times did change a lot, and nowadays you can give your penis the upgrade that it deserves. Penis enlargement methods have become extremely popular and very common, with an increase of 120% in the last couple of years. So, if you have any plans of enlarging your little fellow, there are things that you need to know, as this is not a small thing to do (pun intended).

The enlargement: then and now

Penis-enlargement methods, some of them safe while other unsafe, have flooded the market for quite some time now. You can choose from many options, such as pumps, surgical penis enlargements, and even pills. Be as it may, there is a difference to the times we’re living in now. If you opt for a surgery, you need to pay attention to certain things and it’s definitely not a piece of cake, but there are is also a safer way in which you can enlarge your penis.

Why do men opt for this step?

There’s a question that’s probably older than the Bible — does size matter? No matter what your opinion on this is, size is crucial to some men. Even though it might not enhance the performance as a lover or nothing of that sort, the boost of confidence and self-esteem plays a big role here. Now, is it worth it to get through the process of pumping, eating pills or even living the pain of the surgery just to get your penis bigger and boost your confidence? If that’s something that will make you happy, then you should definitely consider it.

However, a lot of men can opt for a non-surgical penis augmentation lately, which is great for increasing the penis girth, with many guys describing it as an “unqualified success”. Performed with the help of fillers, this somewhat new penis enlargement method promises minimal discomfort, clinically proven results, and quick recovery.

The procedure

This non-surgical penis enlargement method is definitely the safest and the least painful of them all.

Even though the idea of having fillers injected into your penis might sound extremely painful, that’s nothing that a bit of numbing cream cannot resolve, which basically means that you won’t be feeling a thing. Bear in mind that the idea behind this procedure is to increase the girth of the penis, but the added weight of the filler lengthens the penis in many cases, as well. As far as the fillers go, it’s very important that you do your homework beforehand and go to the best clinic possible. There are many injectable fillers out there that can lead to serious issues, so don’t try to save money on this procedure if you really want it. What’s also good to know is that there are fillers that are reversible, which means that it can be melted away. This piece of information is very valuable, as you always have the option of removing it if you’re not satisfied with it afterwards.

Target audience

Even though practically every man can enlarge his penis, some are simply better candidates than others. For example, people who have a “hidden penis” might be the most important candidates for the procedure (even though in many cases the patient has to go through liposuction first to remove the excessive fat around his penis). Another group of people are those who have their penis constrained (also known as “buried penis”), which means that not all of it hangs outside the body. This option might require a surgical procedure to release the ligament and thus make the penis hang more outside of the body. And finally, there are those people (perhaps even you) who are simply not satisfied with the length or girth of their penis. This case might be the easiest, and they are considered as the best candidates for this penis enlargement method.

Bear in mind that this is not a small thing to plan ahead. If you opt for one, make sure to choose the method that’s best for you, the least painful, and the safest. Once again — do not save money on this. If you’re sure that you want to make your penis longer, at least get the best service there is.
