Best Sex Toys for Men Recovering from Prostate Cancer

Melissa Hadley Barrett

So... Prostate Cancer is spoken about a lot, but it is usually about treatment and how to get rid of the cancer and how to stop urine leakage (incontinence).

What is not often discussed is how to get sexual pleasure and help with the recovery of sexual function.

What toy assists recovery?

Let’s talk about what will assist recovery, most important is a good quality penis pump - one that is TGA approved as a medical device.

Penis pumps are not really what I would call a “toy” as to be honest they are not a whole of fun, but they are excellent for keeping your penis healthy.

There is a very specific regime to follow for this purpose. For more information on this, please go to

Melissa's Recommendation

The pump I recommend is a Vacurect Penis Pump.

This pump was designed by a man who had prostate cancer and it is easy to use.

It has the correct pressure so it works therapeutically but not too strong as to cause damage.

Fun Stuff

Now, let’s talk about the fun stuff.

Did you know that men can have an orgasm with a flaccid penis, yep, a non-erect one!

Who would have thought that orgasms, erections, and ejaculation were all separate.

If you want to know more about this, check the video I created specifically to talk about these three! 


What we Do

Other Recommendations

This said I am told, it is quite ‘hard work” (pun intended) to masturbate with a flaccid penis.

This is where sex toys come in.  

Vibration is the best option on the frenulum or perineum as this will go to the nerve bed.

For this purpose, I recommend The Ring Vibrator by My Ilo.

It provides excellent stimulation, is small and compact and the grandkids won't ever guess what it is if they find it in the bedside drawer.

It can be used on partners too for couple fun.

The other great toy is the My Ilo Curve if you are into anal play.

I also recommend a toy which is specifically for flaccid orgasm, the Pulse Duo by Hot Octopus
