What are penis sleeves used for?
As you might guess from the title, penis sleeves are used for:
- Extending penis length & girth
- Adding a varied texture to the penis
- Helping with erectile dysfunction & premature ejaculation
How do penis sleeves help with erectile dysfunction?
One of the most common (if not the most common) reasons that people buy penis sleeves is to provide assistance with erectile dysfunctions issues.
A very popular way to maintain an erection without the use of medication, penis sleeves can both aid with a partially erect penis or essentially replace the shaft of a penis that cannot get fully erect due to ED.
The unique shape of the sleeve can wrap both around the penis and scrotum, essentially providing pressure at sensitive points to encourage an erection, and to also sit flush with the penis to take the place of it should erection issues prove too much.
Penis sleeves are also used for combatting premature ejaculation, as they can provide a different feel e.g. a ‘numbed’ feeling due to a thicker sleeve that naturally will mean the penis is not as sensitive during intercourse.
There is an argument that the actual ‘assistance’ is purely psychological, but there’s a reason why penis sleeves are so popular, and it’s not because they don’t work. In this guide I cover my favourite penis sleeves, those which have helped me personally and others that have rave reviews and clearly do the job. Let’s have a look.

Penis Sleeve Buying Guide For Beginners
As this type of sexual aid is not necessarily all about pure pleasure, there are a few things you need be aware of before buying the correct sleeve for you.
This advice will also mean that you’re not having to buy multiple sleeves, when the right one the first time will be the best choice.
By ‘use’, you need to consider what you actually want a penis sleeve for:
- Pleasure – You’ll be wanting a thin sleeve so that sensation remains, which can often be the opposite with thicker sleeves. I’d recommend you also experiment with multiple textures, which is always fun!
- Extension – This one is a little more simple; how long do you want to extend by? Also, be aware that the sleeve will no doubt be entering your partner, therefore consider them in your buying decision and don’t opt for a sleeve that is too long or thick (essentially turning your member into a large sex toy!)
- Erectile Dysfunction – The best option is a sleeve that has a base for the scrotum as well as the penis, ensuring pressure is maintained. You may also want to opt for a sleeve that covers the entirety of the penis, as the majority of sleeves for ED do. Search for penis sleeves with a ‘sling’ construct (those with the scrotum and testicles included as part of the full sleeve).
- Premature Ejaculation – Here you want a sleeve that does not have any ridges or textures, and is thicker than is standard. Essentially, when you see a sleeve for the purpose of pleasure, you want to go for the opposite.
Most commonly you’ll see either a hard or soft plastic construct with the sleeves. As with mostly all sex toys, they’ll be waterproof and will work well with a water-based lubricant.
Price will tend to vary based on brand, texture and design (such as the longer sleeves with a sleeve design). This is also why it’s important to do your research as you don’t want to have to buy multiple sleeves for the wrong reason. And, the sleeves in this guide are a great place to start!
