*Reviews are paraphrased and full names removed to protect the privacy of those reporting on the device 

“Literally one of the BEST toys I’ve purchased. I happen to be a bit on the bigger side and have found that while other devices don’t accommodate me well,  the open-ended design works perfect!” – Rob

“Better than expected. This was my first sex toy ever and the variety and realistic feel is pretty impressive. I haven’t messed around much with any interactive porn vids but it’s perfect when watching regular porn. Adds an element of immersion and really cranks up the pleasure level to 10/10.”  – Mike

“Probably the best feature is the selection of sleeves for varied types of pleasure. They truly feel realistic and I appreciate the ability to swap out the ‘lips’ (blowjob) for the vagina one and others depending on my mood.” – John

Is The Handy Worth It?

We think so. Handjobs can get boring (especially if it’s YOUR hand doing the heavy lifting). This is the first automated masturbator for men that we feel really gives the REAL thing a run for the money. The realism and immersion when combined with VR porn are out of this world, and the various sleeves keep things interesting day after day.
