Key Takeaways
4.6 out of 5 stars

After testing this bad boy for months, I can confidently say that The Handy is a fantastic sex toy. It’s one of the best male masturbators I own, and I keep reaching for it again and again. I also love that my wife can get in on the action using the WIFI connectivity, which has been lots of fun.

Who Should Try It? Handy is an excellent toy, and I recommend it to any penis owner looking for a premium experience. But that doesn’t mean the ladies can’t join in. My best experience was when my wife controlled the stimulations using the smartphone app.

Who Can Skip It? With a price of $199 with shipping included (for the United States), the cost will put some people off. For a toy that still does a great job, but for less expense, I recommend Lovense Max 2. The Handy also needs to be plugged in, which may be an issue for guys who like battery-operated toys. For a blowjob simulator with excellent battery life, I recommend Kiiroo Keon.

You Can Buy It on the official website for $199.

What Is The Handy?

The Handy is a male masturbator you can connect to WiFi, making it controllable from anywhere. You can also sync the device with porn to experience realistic VR sex sessions. The male masturbator is the brainchild of Norwegian sex toy start-up Sweet Tech. After its release in 2019, it has become the company’s flagship product.

The company aims to normalize talking about sex and provide technology-enabled personal pleasure through innovative products. It’s small, but they don’t cut corners – designing, manufacturing, packaging, and shipping all their toys in Norway to ensure quality control. There’s a reason for that high price tag, but these guys don’t skimp on quality.

The packaging

First Impressions & Features


After about a week, a parcel the size of a small shoebox arrived on my doorstep. It came in discreet packaging, and the invoice labeled it ‘massager, which I thought was pretty cool.

I was excited and ripped off the outer layer, revealing a black, soft-touch matte box that oozed high-class luxury. Sliding off the external card, the main pack inside offers a simple quote in bold letters – “You’re welcome.” Cute.

The content of the box

Inside the box, I found The Handy, the power cable, a TrueGrip penis sleeve, a TrueGrip band, and the instruction manual.

It’s one of the only sex toys that provides its own AC adaptor cable and wall connector instead of a basic USB plug. That immediately gave me confidence in the toy; this thing needs power!


For me, first impressions count. When I first laid eyes upon my own Handy, I was impressed. The device is about 8 inches tall and is a cylinder, and it looks similar to a Bose speaker, making it even more discreet to leave lying around the house.

What surprised me was that your cock doesn’t fit inside the cylinder, like a Fleshlight. Instead, Handy holds and controls the stroker on the side with a velcro strap.

The Handy

Handy is black, sleek, soft to touch, and has a nice weight. I like it when there’s weight to something; it feels higher quality. I am not a fan of the velcro sleeve strap that secures the penis sleeve. It feels a little cheap, but it means you can use any sleeve with the device. You know it’s a good toy when the only thing you’re disappointed in has a justifiable reason.


  • Variable stroke length: 0-110mm (0-4.3″)
  • Max speed: 10 strokes per second
    • Theoretical max speed 1600mm/s

  • Video synchronization

Build Quality

The makers of Handy have left no stone unturned when it comes to the quality of the sex toy. Honestly, it may even be the sleekest and most expensive-looking device I own. The controls, mechanisms, and materials are strong and don’t feel like they will break anytime soon.

The controls

Easy Cleaning

The Handy comes with a sleeve made of silicone, so cleaning is easy. Just rinse the sleeve with warm water, wash it out with soap or sex toy cleaner, and leave it to dry.

It is Powerful

This toy is powerful. Ten strokes per second is serious business, and you need a good motor to do that. When it’s going, it’s going hard.

One size fits all

We all come in different shapes and sizes, and the design will keep everyone happy and satisfied. Whether small, big, or in the middle – you can enjoy a good fit by adjusting the TrueGrip system to firm, soft, or whatever feels best for you.

Different sleeves

What is super cool about Handy is that you can use pretty much any penis sleeve. But it works best with small to medium sizes and even pocket pussies or Tenga sleeves. I did try with a full-size Fleshlight, but the outer case was too big, and the motor couldn’t quite keep up with its weight.

The device charging

Remote Control

You can control Handy over WiFi with a dedicated app called HandyConnect. The HandyConnect app is perfect for a couple in a long-distance relationship, helping you feel connected and keep the spark alive even when apart. Just letting someone have complete control is so exciting. My wife and I have loved using this masturbator in all kinds of situations.

Syncs to Porn

Now, this is the gamer changer. Handy can sync to porn and make you feel like you are a part of the action. It’s not perfect, but you feel more immersed in adult videos. Plus, it’s a lot better than some other toys I’ve tried that do the same thing.

Sweet Tech has compiled a library of porn videos you can sync up with on a site called HandyFeeling, which is well-presented and easy to use. I’ve heard you can create code for any video, so it syncs with Handy. Still, my lack of computer literacy means I will stick to the company’s content.

The site offers a free one-month trial and  a 50% discount on a lifetime subscription if you really love it.

Technology continues to revolutionize every aspect of our sex life, and FeelMe AI integration into the Handy is an incredible development.

How To Use The Handy?

I loved how easy the Handy was to use, and they have not overcomplicated this toy like some of the other tech sex toys I have. To me, this is a big bonus.

  1. Plug the device into a wall outlet.
  2. Insert your penis into the sleeve
  3. Keep one hand on top of the device.
  4. Adjust the strap so it’s tight enough to hold the sleeve.
  5. Turn on the device using the power button.
  6. Now you can adjust the speed and stroke length using the 4 buttons.

The manual on how to use it

My Personal Experience

I was eager to put Handy to the test as soon as it arrived on my doorstep. For my first go, I didn’t wait for my wife to get home from work, and I didn’t bother about setting up the connection to the app. And I went old school and controlled it manually.

I headed straight for the bedroom, made myself comfortable, and inspected the TrueGrip sleeve holder. Side note; always wash your new toys before using peeps; who knows what they will pick up during manufacturing.

Ease Of Use

The Handy is straightforward to use. After playing a little with the sleeve on its own, I attached it using the velcro strap. I realized that you could tighten the sleeve this way, which is another incredible thing you can experiment with.

The controls are intuitive, and I had the machine stroking within a few seconds (it came fully charged, which is a huge bonus). The buttons pointing East and West control the speed of the stroke, and the buttons North and South control the length of the stroke. I’d heard The Handy could do ten strokes per second and was eager to test it!

Hooking the Handy up with my WiFi was a little tricky, but isn’t that the case for everything? After maybe 15 minutes, I sorted everything out so my wife could control the toy from the HandyConnect app while I enjoyed the ride.

One thing to note is that Handy only works when plugged in. There is no internal battery, which means unlimited power. Still, having a long adapter cable running across the bed can be inconvenient.


I may have let out a slight groan when I inserted my throbbing member. The TrueGrip sleeve has some nice firm texture inside, and it felt nice to slide in with some of my favorite lube.

Slowly going through the speeds, the power of the toy is impressive. It can strike when you want it to. I was getting harder and closer to cumming way too fast, so I decided to slow things down and play with the adjustable stroke length. Using the control buttons, you can control the size of your stroke. The slow, long strokes feel good. Plus, you can move the stroker to focus on a particular section of your dick. You can do short strokes near the tip, a tease in the best way. You can do long, deep-throat-like strokes or stroke the whole shaft. Pretty damn good, if I say.

Working my way back up the speed and testing the limits, I found that I couldn’t hit top speed on long strokes without it becoming too out of control. I adjusted the stroke to be shorter to test out the speed behind Handy. My god, the thing can go. I wasn’t anywhere near the 10-strokes-per-second mark before I came. And I guess that is something I’ll have to work up to, all part of the hard work for these articles.

How Well Does It Sync To Interactive Content?

I was blown away (both literally and figuratively) once I started syncing Handy with the app. It’s now my main porn-watching combo – Handy + HandyFeeling for the win!

When I’ve used the masturbator while watching porn, it syncs well to the particular scene, whether a handjob, blowjob, or sex. The range of motion changes, too, so you get this entire masturbation experience without having to control one thing. I am a huge fan, and my wife is very jealous that there isn’t something like this for the ladies.

Now and then, the WiFi connection creates a bit of lag, which can be frustrating. I’ve found this to be the case with most automatic masturbators that connect to porn, and Handy wasn’t the worst, so it wasn’t a massive issue for me.

The content is good, and there was enough variation to cater to most of my secret kinks and persuasions. Hopefully, HandyFeeling will keep up with new content and continue to grow the tech to make it feel as true to life as possible.

Review Summary

Stimulation4.6 out of 5 stars
Features4.6 out of 5 stars
Cleanup4.8 out of 5 stars
Price4.3 out of 5 stars
Overall Rating4.6 out of 5 stars

I can say, with complete confidence, that Handy is an amazing sex toy. It’s one of the best masturbator toys I own, and I do keep reaching for it, time and time again.

The diversity you can get from one product has made me a fan. I think it’s so great that I can use sleeves from other sex toy companies. It’s one toy, but the sleeves you can use are endless. I like how it is compact; it can go slow, really fast, and feels great.

Plus, my wife can get involved with the WIFI connectivity, which has been lots of fun. All in all, Handy is a super great toy, and I would recommend it to any guy looking for a long-term investment in self-pleasure.

If you check out other Handy reviews, most agree it’s a fantastic product.


  • Powerful
  • Adjustable to suit any penis size
  • Works with lots of other sleeves
  • Connects to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • App for remote control
  • Great for partner play and long-distance relationships
  • Sync to porn
  • Easy to clean


  • You need to use it with the included power supply (no internal battery)
  • WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity can be spotty
  • It doesn’t come with a storage bag
  • A little louder than I’d like
  • Not 100% hands-free.

Is The Handy toy worth it?

If you are looking for something to simulate real sex, Handy does a great job. But that doesn’t mean the ladies can’t enjoy the fun. The best experiences with Handy are when my wife is in complete control using the app.

I consider myself pretty experienced in the world of sex toys, and Handy is up there with the best auto strokers around the globe. It would be a great toy for someone wanting to dip their toes into hands-free masturbation.

Who Is It Not For?

With a price tag of $199 with shipping included (for the US), the cost of this toy will put some people off. For a toy that still does a great job, but for less expense, I would try the Lovense Max 2.

The fact that Handy needs to be plugged in will also be an issue for guys who like battery-operated toys. For a blowjob simulator with excellent battery life, I would try the Kiiroo Onyx+. You can read my Onyx+ review here.

I am Sold! Where Can I Buy It?

You can buy The Handy at the official store.

Handy vs. Kiiroo Keon

I have Kiiroo Keon, a male masturbator sex toy similar to Handy.

The Handy is a much more compact toy that essentially does the same thing as the Keon. Both can sync up with porn, are easy to use, and are controlled via an app. But The Handy is smaller, more discreet, and more powerful.

Now, I rarely use the Keon because it is so bulky. Yes, it does the job, and a good one at that, but I always seem to reach for Handy. The fact that you can add a variety of masturbation sleeves is also a huge bonus.

Cleaning & Maintenance

The Handy is one of the most uncomplicated toys to clean. I use it a lot, so something simple is a huge plus. When done, all you have to do is detach the sleeve, turn it inside out and rinse it under warm water. Once that’s done, I leave the sleeve to drip dry. I then wash the sleeve with my sex toy cleaner, but you can use mild soap too.

The sex toy didn’t come with a storage case which is disappointing because it is such a premium toy in most other areas. I keep my TrueGrip sleeve in a silk bag with all my different sleeves.

Now it sits on my bookshelf in my room because you wouldn’t know what you’re looking at if you didn’t know what it was. And if one of my friends does ask, I would be happy to tell them all about the benefits; it’s one I would recommend.

Available Handy Accessories

Handy has developed a range of delightful sleeves as accessories for your wank machine. The newest addition is the Dream Sleeve Collection, a range of three sleeves designed to resemble the best feelings of real sex.

The packaging of the 3 Dream sleeves

All the sleeves have a lovely soft feeling, and the difference between them is not the most drastic. Although these differences can be a little lost, there are subtle differences as each sleeve has many different textures.

The 3 sleeve cases

The Lotus and the Lips are the most similar. Both have a closed tip and feature a little goal at the end for you to aim for, but overall I wouldn’t say that one is better than the other. The Touch is also unique because of its open-ended design.

The Lotus

The shape of the Lotus mimics the sensation of having sex with a vagina. And the chambers are lined with ridges, nubs, and canals to make you feel as if you are plunging balls deep into a vagina. The entry point has ridges for stimulation and tightness combined with a nubbed interior targeting the glans, keeping you stimulated from the bottom of your shaft to the top of your head.

The Lotus sleeve

This sleeve offers the widest variety of feelings as it has the most textures. One fun addition to this sleeve is that it even contains a G-spot inside of it that you might be able to get your member to rub up against at the very end of the sleeve. Talk about going all the way. It’s too bad this G-spot won’t squirt in your face, though.

Be aware of getting too much air inside the sleeve while using it. I found I could get squeezed out of the sleeve if air pockets developed. For this reason, the Lotus is not a good choice if you are on the girthier side of the ding-dong spectrum.

  • Insertable Length: 5.3 inches
  • Entrance Diameter: 0.5-2 inches

The Lips

The Lips no doubt sets out to give you the best and tightest deep-throating experience, gagging sounds not included. It’s lined with little nubs to please your frenulum as you slide in and out of it. And these bumps form ridges that swirl in an almost corkscrew-like pattern to feel like a tongue is swirling around your penis like slurping up a melting ice cream cone.

The Lips sleeve

Like the Lotus, this, too, has a prize at the end section. Again, a ribbed pattern creates a vacuum that sucks on your knob, mimicking real-life action. The downside is that if any air gets inside the sleeve, it will start to force you out of it, just like the Lotus can.

  • Length: 4.9 inches
  • Diameter: 0.85-2.3 inches

The Touch

Assumably the Touch will be Handy’s time to shine as this sleeve mimics a human hand. This sleeve will grip your dick like a professional pocket-pool-playing lady.

The Touch sleeve

It has an open end to give that natural wrist job feeling, which meant I could enjoy deeper strokes than the other sleeves without hitting the top of the sleeve. Inside the sleeve are five little finger-like ridges to help accentuate the feeling of a firm handshake on your member. Nubs accompany these ridges throughout the sleeve to tease you even further to the point of no return.

The Touch is the tightest of the three sleeves and is most different from the other two. Once I played around with its position on my dick, I think it became my favorite.

  • Length: 4.1 inches
  • Width: 0.8-2.75 inches
