Japan is famous for a lot of things: cherry blossoms, samurai, robotics… but perhaps the best thing of all to come out of Japan is the onahole.
These little-known, fuckable, squishy strokers are one of the greatest male-focused sex toys on the market. Masturbating with an onahole is almost as good as the real thing and, once you’ve got your hands on one, you’ll never fap without one again.
In this guide, we’re going to be telling you everything you need to know, including what they are, how to choose one, and where to buy them. We’ll also be sharing and reviewing our top 10 favorite products.

What Is an Onahole?
An onahole is a male masturbator similar to a fleshlight, but with a distinctly Japanese twist. Like a fleshlight, it simulates a real vagina. Unlike a fleshlight, onaholes are inspired by anime characters, rather than real, living pornstars and adult models.
Naturally, they’re heavily influenced by and targeted at members of the hentai (manga pornography) community, and often feature hentai art on both the packaging and the product itself.
That being said, you don’t have to enjoy hentai or anime to enjoy an onahole. On the contrary, many western users don’t even notice these hentai influences – they’re just in it for the unique stimulation the toy provides.
And don’t worry, this doesn’t make them any less convincing. On the contrary, they’re more realistic than fleshlights in many ways. For example, onaholes often have breasts and torsos, whereas fleshlights are usually just a tube with a vagina-like opening and canal at the end.
Onaholes still tend to very accurately mimic the anatomy, textures, and overall ‘feel’ of a real vagina, despite looking more like something out of a manga comic. They’re also usually tighter than fleshlights and provide a more consistent level of pressure.
The name onahole is the Japanese term for masturbators, and translates roughly as ‘masturbation hole.’ They come in lots of different varieties, like handheld strokers, full-sized sex dolls, or torso-shaped sex toys often called ‘hips.’
The Main Benefits/Uses
So, what’s so great about onaholes then? What makes them any different from traditional western male masturbators? Well, I’m glad you asked.
Here are some of the main benefits that make them extra special.
- More catered towards anime fans — the most obvious USP of onaholes is that they’re inspired by manga characters. If you enjoy hentai (manga pornography), you might find the designs more appealing than other male masturbators, like pocket pussies and fleshlights.
- Realism/immersion — Onaholes are more than just nice-feeling holes; they’re works of art. Most of the time, they’re designed to look like a complete part of the body, with things like buttcheeks, tongues (in the case of oral masturbators), and breasts. This makes the experience much more immersive and arguably more realistic.
- Better masturbation — the added texture and pressure provided by onaholes makes masturbation more satisfying. Using your hands alone doesn’t even come close.
- Stamina training — some men use them to help them build up their sexual stamina so that they last longer in bed with their partner.
- Practice — because they mimic a real hole, you can experiment with new things and practice your technique to make you better in bed.
- Partner play — masturbators aren’t just for solo use. You can also use them in bed with your partner to spice things up. If for some reason, your partner isn’t able to perform, you can use the onahole instead.
A Buyer’s Guide
There are tons of different onaholes on the market. So many that it can be tough to find the right one for you.
To help you to narrow down the pool and find your perfect masturbation hole, I’ve put together a buying guide. Here are the different factors you should consider when shopping around.
Size & Tightness
Onaholes come in different shapes and sizes, but most of them are sold as ‘one-size-fits-all.’ That’s true to an extent; you probably could fit in there regardless of the size of your manhood but, if you’re particularly well-endowed, it’s going to be a tight squeeze.
It’s a much better idea to measure yourself up and choose one you know will fit nicely. The better brands will offer sizing guidelines to help you to choose the right size for your specific needs.
If they don’t provide exact measurements, they might offer different levels of ‘tightness.’ Onaholes tend to be tighter than the average masturbator, so I’d recommend opting for a looser fit if you have a large girth.
Body Parts / Type of Hole
One of the best things about onaholes is the variety on offer. There’s one out there to suit every taste, and you can even choose the orifice you’re most interested in.
Are you more of an anal guy? If so, look for an anal model. If you have a preference for pussies, go for a vaginal model. Or if you really want to simulate a blowjob, opt for an oral masturbator.
Some even offer several holes in one for double (or triple) the fun. You can find some that have an anal, vaginal, and oral hole so you can switch it up depending on what mood you’re in.
Some come complete with other body parts too. For example, torso-shaped masturbators might come with breasts or buttcheeks that you can grab onto for leverage or spank to make the experience more immersive.
Another important factor to consider is realism. The whole point of masturbators is that they feel more realistic than your hands, so you’ll want to choose one that’s as realistic as possible.
Some really take realism to the next level. For example, some oral masturbators even come complete with teeth to make it just that bit more realistic.
A good way to gauge how realistic an onahole might be is to look at the reviews to see what other users are saying.
Design / Model
Obviously, the look of the onahole is important too. Many are modeled off anime characters but, if hentai isn’t really your thing, you can also find others modeled off real-life pornstars.
Think about whether you’re interested in more realistic-looking masturbators or anime-inspired ones, and choose one that suits your style.
The texture is a huge part of the experience. The best will have highly textured canals full of grooves and canyons that feel great and provide added stimulation to your penis.
Personal preference is important here. Some guys don’t like lots of nooks and crannies and prefer a ‘smoother’ sensation. Think about what you like and look for a product that meets your needs.
Sensitivity refers to how much pressure and stimulation the masturbator provides. Many manufacturers offer several adjustable levels of sensitivity, from high sensitivity (高刺激 /koushigeki) to low sensitivity (まったり/mattari). Mattari roughly translates as ‘comfortable.
The right sensitivity for you comes down to personal preference. Less sensitivity is more realistic and closer to what a real vagina would feel like. More sensitivity can help you to orgasm faster, but it might feel a little too intense for some guys.
Another factor to consider is the firmness of the masturbator. Do you prefer a softer feel or a firmer feel? Firmer toys will provide more pressure, whereas softer toys have more of a ‘stretch’ to them. If you’re well-endowed and need a little more room, I’d recommend going for a softer onahole.
Handheld vs. Mounted
Some masturbators need to be held in your hands, whereas others can be mounted or left free-standing on top of a surface so you can go hands-free. Many guys prefer mounted masturbators as it’s a more immersive, convincing experience. Using your hands to hold it in place kind of breaks the illusion that you’re having sex with a real person.
That being said, there are some advantages to handheld models too. For example, you can use them pretty much anywhere, and they’re more compact and discrete.
Keep a lookout for special features and add-ons as well. Pricier models might come with premium features that make the experience that bit more special. I’m talking about features like customizable pressurization settings, movement, built-in lube, and motion-activated sound features.
Think about what special features you might be interested in and look for something that fits the bill.
Different masturbators are made from different materials, but most tend to be made from plastic or silicone.
Ideally, you should choose one that’s made from a non-porous, body-safe material. Medical-grade silicone is usually the best as it’s typically hypoallergenic and body-safe, and it feels great.
If you plan on taking your masturbator with you on the go, think about the size and weight. Most manufacturers and sellers will list the item weight and dimensions on their product page, so keep an eye out for that. The smaller it is, the more discrete and portable it will be.
And finally, think about the price. The cost can vary dramatically depending on the quality of the product, from $30 all the way up to $500 or more. As you can see, the high-end of the market gets very expensive.
Set yourself a budget right from the bat and only look at products in your price range. That way, you won’t get your heart set on something that you can’t afford.

However, this isn’t just a sleeve-shaped masturbator, it offers a full experience and even has a butt cavity for guys who like a bit of variety in their lives.

This Japanese-designed masturbator is one of the best options if you’re looking for an affordable yet realistic feeling product. The designers of this toy did everything they could to make sure that the skin of this masturbator felt soft and lifelike.
However, the realism doesn’t end with the skin. The inside of the canal is also super realistic feeling. It isn’t overly lumpy, but it does simulate the feeling of a real woman’s vagina. It also has a slight vacuuming effect towards the end of the canal.
While it is on the cheaper side, it’s one of the best quality toys on the market in this price range. The only real drawback with it is that it’s a little bit on the small side, so if you’re a guy that needs extra room, it might not be for you.
5. Puni Ana Miracle DX
The Puni Ana Miracle DX is a great option if you’re looking for a full torso-style masturbator. This sizable product is like a halfway house between a masturbator and a full-fledged sex doll.
Puni Ana Miracle DX is one of the few products on this list that come complete with breasts and two different holes to enjoy. No matter what you’re into, you’re sure to enjoy this toy as it can be used in a variety of positions and has both a vaginal and anal canal. It is designed in the image of a voluptuous woman with wide hips and large breasts to enhance your experience.
Puni Ana Miracle DX is one of the most expensive options on this list, but if you’re looking for a masturbator that is sure to satisfy you whatever mood you’re in, this is a great option.
6. Gokusen Fella DX Yuna Ogura
The Gokusen Fella DX Yuna Ogura is an oral masturbator for simulating oral sex and deep-throating. The Japanese designers that created this toy have done their best to simulate a real woman’s mouth, and as such, it’s complete with a tongue, teeth, lips, and even has a bumpy deep-throat canal for you to enjoy.
Behind the mouthlike opening, there is a sizable shaft making it suitable for guys of almost any size.
The toy is small enough to hold in one hand, making it easy to have a good time without too much hassle. Although the details on the Gokusen Fella DX Yuna Ogura are quite intricate, the toy is surprisingly affordable, making it the perfect addition to your oral fantasies.
7. Secret Lover Himekano
If you’re keen to get the full onahole experience, then the Secret Lover Himenako is a great choice. It is modeled after a famous anime character, and it’s much more than just a plastic vagina. It gives a full-bodied experience and is complete with a butt and a generously sized pair of breasts.
For anime and manga lovers, it is sure to bring your hentai fantasies to life as it also has super lifelike skin material for extra realism. Although it’s complete with a butt, it only has a single vaginal opening to enhance tightness. The inside of the canal is bumpy and textured for a more realistic and lifelike feel.
Unfortunately, though, the added tightness means that cleaning it can be a bit tricky, but you should be able to manage it without damaging the vagina opening. Although the Secret Lover Himenako is on the expensive side, it’s perfect for anyone looking for a more complete experience.
8. Toysheart 17
The Toysheart 17 model is a simple yet stimulating masturbator packed full of satisfying features. While it’s slightly bigger than some of Toysheart’s anime models, it’s just as tight and has an interesting bumpy entrance. The canal is textured for a full and stimulating experience, and it even has a suction chamber at the end for a more realistic feel.
Toysheart 17 is small and discreet, making it perfect for anyone who travels a lot. The only downside with the Toysheart 17 is that many reviewers found it quite hard to clean due to the tight canal. Some people have even reported that the Toysheart 17 is easy to damage during the cleaning process.
Pricewise, the Toysheart 17 is quite an economical option, and it’s one of the cheapest models available from this brand. If you’re looking for a discreet yet pleasureful masturbator, this could be the right product for you.
9. Ride Moeana
The Ride Moeana is a budget-friendly and simplistic male masturbator perfect for anyone that enjoys a rough interior. When used in the classic up-and-down motion, this masturbator offers a stimulating ride, but it’s better used in a twisting motion. The twisting allows you to get the full experience with the help of three textured walls.
Despite its low price, the Ride Moeana is a durable option, and it’s super easy to clean. All you have to do is turn it inside-out and give it a rinse, and you’re good to go, again and again.
However, although it’s easy to keep clean, some people have complained that the cheaper material is not very lifelike and it stretches easily. If you’re looking for a tighter masturbation hole, it may be best to fork out for one of the more expensive models.
10. Zhang Xiao Yu’s Realistic Pussy Masturbator
If you’re keen to get your hands on a masturbator with a little extra personality, then this is the product for you. On the exterior, it looks like any other masturbator, but the product is modeled after a famous pornstar’s actual vagina. Zhang Xiao Yu is one of China’s most famous pornstars, so famous that there is a huge demand for this product worldwide.
Although it’s a little more expensive than the more basic models, this male masturbator is complete with all the lumps and bumps that Zhang Xiao Yu has to offer, which makes for a super stimulating experience. If you’re a fan of the Chinese mega-star, this masturbator is sure to add an extra level of realism to your fantasies.
Also, it’s waterproof, so it’s super easy to clean and suitable for use in the bathtub or shower.
What Are The Alternatives?
If none of the products above tickle your fancy, don’t worry, there are plenty of other male masturbators out there to choose from.
Aside from onaholes, the major other male masturbators are pocket pussies and fleshlights. Fleshlight is a specific brand that produces some of the most realistic-feeling artificial vaginas money can buy.
They don’t come with all the bells and whistles that onaholes do, but a lot of guys prefer them because they tend to be more durable, long-lasting, and easier to use. Fleshlights come with two end caps, which are used to control the pressure and level of suction. This is different than onaholes, which you have to squeeze to adjust the pressure.
If you want to try out a fleshlight, I’d recommend the Pink Lady STU.
‘Pocket pussies’ is the general term for western-style male masturbators. It’s not a brand like Fleshlights. They’re similar to onaholes, but they look more like real vaginas and aren’t usually inspired by anime art. One of my favorite pocket pussies is the THRUST Pro Ultra Holly Realistic Vagina.
How To Use An Onahole
Using an onahole isn’t rocket science. It should be fairly intuitive; you’re mostly just doing what comes naturally to you. However, to provide a little guidance, I’ve broken it down into five steps.
Step 1: Clean your masturbator
Make sure you clean your onahole by soaking it in warm water before you use it. This is especially important if it’s a brand-new toy as it’ll help to loosen it up and get rid of any unwanted chemicals or bacteria still on there.
Even if you already cleaned it after the last time you used it, you still need to clean it again as dirt and bacteria could have easily built up since then while it’s been sitting around.
Step 2: Lube up
While not strictly necessary, you’ll probably want to use some lube to help you to slide into the hole. Onaholes are tighter than other kinds of male masturbators, so you might struggle to fit comfortably without lubrication.
Put a thick layer of the lube over your penis as well as onto the opening of the masturbator. Make sure the lube you use is compatible with your toy. If it’s made from silicone, you’ll probably want to use a water-based lube and NOT a silicone-based lube as the latter can damage your toy.
Step 3: Slide in and enjoy
Slide your penis into the opening. I’d advise you to take it slow here if it’s your first time using it, as the sensation might feel a little strange at first. If it feels way too tight, you might want to try and ‘loosen it up’ with your fingers first, or buy a looser-fitting product.
Once you’re in, do what comes naturally to you. Depending on the product you’ve bought, you might want to thrust in and out of the onahole, or twist and turn it around your penis. Whatever floats your boat!
Step 4: Adjust the tightness/pressure
To adjust the tightness/pressure while you’re using your onahole, all you usually have to do is grip it. Squeeze gently on the toy to make it tighter, and release your grip to make it looser. Easy, right?
Step 5: Clean it after use
It’s essential that you practice good hygiene when using any sex toy, especially male masturbators. Leaving sperm inside there to fester is a HUGE no-no. Not only is it gross, but it puts you at risk of UTIs and other nasty bacterial infections, which I’m guessing you don’t want.
To clean it, run some warm water right through it to wash everything out and then soak it in a bowl of hot, soapy water for around 15 minutes or longer. This should get everything out of there. Of course, you should always revert to the cleaning guidelines of your specific product first. If your manufacturer’s guidelines say to do something different, do that instead.
Also, make sure that the interior and exterior of the masturbator are completely dry before you put it away and store it in a dry place. This will help to prevent bacteria, damp and mold from building up inside the toy.
Care & Maintenance Tips
Before we wrap up, here are a few final care and maintenance tips that will help your onahole to last longer:
- Store it separately from your other toys. Silicone sex toys can react with other sex toys, so you should always store them separately from each other in their own storage case or bag.
- Don’t leave it on the floor. Because of the materials masturbators are made from, they can gather dust and dirt easily. When not in use, store your masturbator in a clean container.
- Look out for signs of wear and tear. Cracks and crevices that appear in your masturbator can be breeding grounds for bacteria. If you notice too much wear and tear, you might want to replace it.
- Don’t overuse it. Try to limit your usage to a few times a week, if possible. Overuse can cause damage that reduces the lifespan of your masturbator.
Alright, that about covers it. Now you know all there is to know about onaholes. They really are a great sex toy that every guy should try out at least once.
