I’ve had the opportunity to review quite a few mechanical masturbators and often they are a bit disappointing. So when EasyToys asked me if I wanted to test the AK S1, I was skeptical to say the least. But – spoiler alert – I was positively surprised!
What is the AK Super Series S1?
This sex toy for people with a penis may look like a hair dryer, but it is really a massager for your dick. And not just any old one. This masturbator can make up to 300 strokes per minute. I bet your hand can’t compete with that! But not only that, the AK S1 can also heat and it has 2 built-in bullet vibrators, which give and extra dimension to the massage.
AK, by the way, is a Chinese brand. Forget your preconception that Chinese only make cheap junk. Because on AK’s website you will see that these guys are a very cool and young brand with products that are beautiful in design.
- Material: The holder is ABS plastic and the sleeve is TPE
- Weight: 920 gr
- Battery: built-in battery, rechargeable with included USB cable. After 3 hours of charging, you can play with it for about 1 hour (the heating function shortens the playing time considerably)
- Noise level: <70 dB (which is reasonably quiet)
- Lubricant to use: water-based
- Controls: 5 buttons (2 for speed, 1 for bump function, 1 for vibration function and 1 for heating function)
- Heating: up to 38.5 0C
- Thrusts: 4 different patterns and stepless speeds (up to 300 thrusts per minute)
- Vibrating: 2 built-in vibrators on each side, with 4 vibration patterns
- Dimensions: 196 x 88 x 217 mm
- Waterproof: no (the sleeve can be disassembled for cleaning)
If you did not know better, you would swear that you have just bought a hair dryer. The box has a fresh look and contains only a picture of the product. On the back are the specifications in four languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean and English).
The box contains the AK S1, a sleeve, and a box that contains the charging cable and a short manual (again in the same 4 languages).
You can easily assemble the AK S1. The sleeve can only go in one way, and you simply secure it by turning it a quarter turn. Easy! The orange cover can be put back on afterwards to store the device hygienically.
The battery is already charged a little bit, but not enough to use the heating function as well. So: charge for 3 hours first!
Taking the AK S1 for a test drive
Many mechanical masturbators are huge, and this AK S1 is certainly no exception. The thing is as big as … well, as a hair dryer that is.
I have used this thing a few times now and I must say that overall I am quite impressed. Especially since most other mechanical masturbators are rather disappointing. So what makes the AK S1 different?
Well for starters, the noise level. It’s pretty low with the AK S1. So no annoying power tool sounds, but a whisper soft sound. Secondly, it has a heating function. That makes the sleeve get about as warm as any body opening of a partner. This makes it feel more like a mouth, vagina or anus (I’ll leave to your imagination which you prefer). The sleeve has a pretty distinct texture on the inside. And you can feel it. The soft TPE material massages your penis from top to bottom in a great way. And finally, this one has two vibrators. One sits at the top and one more at the bottom.
I recommend that you first turn on the AK S1, and then immediately activate the heating function. After that, put some lubricant on your penis at your leisure. The AK S1 can then get nice and warm in the meantime. Then put the AK S1 over your penis but don’t press it all the way to your belly for the best effect. Then turn it on and play around with the settings. It takes some experimenting which position works best. In some positions the thing made some “fart sounds” for example.
I myself have a very average-sized penis. But if your penis is thicker than a girth of about 10cm then it might not feel so nice. Length matters less, because with this device you mainly want to massage the top of your penis.
The only thing I really find particularly stupid about this device is the placement of the buttons. In fact, the “hair dryer shape” is not very ergonomic at all. When you slide the AK S1 over your penis, the buttons are always out of sight. That’s just weird. Not insurmountable, but just less well thought out.
To clean the AK S1, remove the sleeve. Turn it a quarter turn and pull it out and rinse it under lukewarm water. Let the sleeve dry and meanwhile clean the holder with a damp cloth. The sleeve cannot be rinsed under the tap because it is not waterproof.
The AK S1 is a mechanical heating and vibrating massager for the penis. The “hairdryer shape” is a bit odd, and as a result, the buttons are, in my humble opinion, in the wrong place. But the combination of heating, vibrating and thrusting gives a unique experience that results in a wonderful orgasm. At least with me.
The PROS of the AK S1:
- Pleasant soft sleeve with delicious internal structure
- Heating function
- Two vibrators built in
- Bump function stepless speeds
- Easy cleaning and hygienic storage
- Weird ‘hair dryer’ design with illogical location for the buttons
- No storage pouch
