The Handy Sex Toy Review In 2023: Is This The BEST Handjob Machine?! [Tried & TESTED]

In this Handy review, we share our insights after 3-month testing this handjob machine. You’ll learn how good it is, how to use it, and the best alternatives. Read on:

The Handy Sex Toy Review featured image

So a while ago, I reviewed the Keon in the Kiiroo Keon review and posted about it on social media. Got a few comments, most of which were asking “how does it compare to the Handy?” 

What’s a Handy? I thought. 

So I looked it up. Hey, that looks pretty neat, but I have other things to review. I’ll get around to it. 

But then it kept popping up when I was reading about other hands-free male masturbators and I thought maybe I should check this out after all… but no, I still have more important things to do. 

Finally, one evening while browsing CzechVRNetwork (a favorite of mine) one day, I noticed a button that said “use with Handy [new]”. 

And that was it. I knew I had to get my hands on one. 

And I gotta say… I’m annoyed that I didn’t try it out sooner. 

Here’s why in a nutshell: 

The Good

It strokes fast, packs a hell of a lot of power and you can use it with a bunch of different sleeves! 

The buttons, interface, and interactive features are simple to use and very effective, especially when it syncs up to your favorite porno.

What’s more, they regularly put out updates to the firmware and new features, so the Handy should keep improving way into the future! 

The Not So Good

It’s not hands-free. No matter what you’ll have to hold it in your hand or jury-rig something.

Handy also can’t be used with bulkier sleeves as they’ll overload the motor.

It’s wired, which helps it stay light and deliver a lot of power, but it’s obviously not that portable since it has to stay plugged into the wall. 

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for one of the best automatic masturbators out there, then the Handy is a good bet. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth the investment.

The interactive options are improving with every update, and the variety of strokers you can use it with is unparalleled. With the recent update, Kiiroo’s best interactive option, FeelMe AI, is now compatible with The Handy!

You’ll love the Handy if:

  • You want interactive porn that works
  • You have many sleeves you want to use automatically
  • You want to be at the forefront of sex technology

You might not love the Handy if:

  • You like full-size sleeves
  • You really need your masturbator to be hands-free
  • You’re on a low budget

If you wanna give it a go, we also got a special discount code ALPHA that gives 20USD off for any order above 150 USD.

The Handy sex toy: My First Impressions 

If you’ve read any of my reviews before, then you’ll know that presentation is important to me. 

As the saying goes, “you only get one chance at a first impression.” 

And Sweet Tech smashed it out of the park with Handy’s packaging. 

It’s sleek, minimalist, all black, and makes an excellent impression. It would be a great gift. 

Actually, mine was a great gift for myself. 

It even says “YOU’RE WELCOME” on the box! 

The Handy Sex Toy Review unboxec

Inside you get: 

  • The Handy 
  • TrueGrip sleeve
  • Cable 
  • Instruction manual
  • Discount voucher for free trial + discount on interactive porn, etc. 

So far, so good. But what about the Handy itself? 

Design, Functions, and Usability 


Stroke Length
up to 4.5”
Stroke Speed
up to 600/min 
about 2lbs


The Handy is made of high-quality plastics, electronic wizardry and the usual other bits you might expect from a toy like this. 

The sleeve is made of TPE or something like it, so again no surprises here. 

The Handy itself is light and easy to hold in one hand. Much easier to move around and hang on to than the Kiiroo Keon or Fleshlight Launch. 

I get the impression the Handy is built tough enough to survive a drop or two. 

An accidental drop test from a few feet up posed no threat. I didn’t have the guts to try dropping it again, but I’m confident these things are built to last. 


Is it just me or does it look a little bit like the HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey? 

When I first turned it on and started stroking I half expected it to say “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t let you do that.” 

But it didn’t, mercifully. We’re still a long way from intelligent sex toys that take over the world. I hope. 

Jokes aside, it is a pretty thing.

If not for the strap on the side, you might look at it and think it was a Bluetooth speaker or an Amazon Echo. 

So the box looks good, the machine looks good… but what’s under the hood? 

The Handy’s Key Functionality

Adjustable Strokes 

Adjustable Strokes 

You can adjust the stroke length up to 4.5”, which should be more than enough for any size of penis or preference.

That’s better than most other masturbators I’ve tried, which usually manage 2-3”.

And that speed. I’m not sure who exactly wants to feel like they’re being jerked off by the Flash, but it’s very impressive nonetheless.

10 strokes a second… That’s frightening. 

Remote Control via App 

Once you’ve got a connection key and got it hooked up, you can control your Handy via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi through their HandyConnect app.

It’s a bit of a hassle the first time with the connection key and all, but after that it’s plain sailing. 👌🏻

VR and Interactive Porn

I know, I know. Companies have been promising immersive, interactive porn for a few years now, but the technology is still playing catch-up to these promises. Most of the time it’s buggy, glitchy, or just doesn’t sync up very well in the first place. 

The Handy isn’t perfect either — occasionally, it syncs badly and doesn’t match the strokes you see on screen. 

But it’s a lot better than most of the other toys I’ve stuck my penis into! 

It connects easily and stays connected reliably, which is already better than some machines out there. 

It uses funscripts to sync up motions with the videos you’re watching. It works with 2D porn or in VR, so if you’ve got a headset already then prepare yourself for an incredibly immersive experience! 

Best of all for this feature, Handy is still updating and upgrading its firmware to iron out bugs and improve the overall experience.

For example, with the latest update you can skip around in the videos you’re watching and the Handy will instantly keep up with the changing stroke rate. What sorcery is this!? 



SexLikeReal differs from other VR porn sites as it’s more of a massive catalog with over 10,000 scenes split into two subscription tiers: pay-per-view and premium. Unlike the usual bundle offers, the latter brings only a few of the total number. 

A single subscription giving everything you want in one place and giving you a free app for easy access should be a no-brainer. However, it can be quite costly than other alternatives in the market. So best to consider that before putting all your eggs in one basket.

Adult Time

Adult Time

Adult Time features content from several big porn sites. That means you can find anything you’re looking for, from whatever niche or obscure fetish you’re into to the most vanilla sex scenes you can enjoy. Some original series are also available, so if you want to expand your catalog, this site is one interactive experience you will spend your nights in.



FeelXVideos is another unique site as it only offers teledildonic sex scenes, none of which are in VR. That could seem like a drawback to some, but in the grand scheme of things, it offers a service that neatly fits between competing brands.

Although the site might need some updating, the actual amount of interactive porn available is still damn right outstanding.

Czech VR

Czech VR

Czech VR is all you need to access hot East European babes. New videos are added to the weekly collection, showcasing exclusive HD videos for various platforms.

The website’s style is a combination of daydreaming and reality. Because VR allows you to view scenes as though you are there, the scenarios that play out are your best, and the wettest fantasies come to life. Sexy ladies approach you, get all hot and bothered, and demand more than a casual conversation. What more could you want?

Naughty America

Naughty America

Although the scenes in Naughty America aren’t the best in terms of the highest resolution, they are still decent, guaranteeing that every video is as stimulating in 6K. 

Additionally, there are also non-VR interactive scenarios made accessible. And because of this, it’s a fantastic VR site for someone who wants to dabble in a bit of versatile action and imagination. 


One Size Fits All

The Handy has an adaptive design that can cater to different shapes and sizes. So finding the right fit shouldn’t be a problem as the TrueGrip feature can help you adjust to your chosen preference. 

High Quality

Handy’s quality certainly left no room for its creators to slack around. And if I’m being honest, it might be the sleekest and most fancy-looking toy I have in my repertoire.

Everything from its materials, controls, and features feels durable and top-notch. And they seem unlikely to malfunction anytime soon, which is a definite win in my book.

Easy to Clean

Aftercare for this toy is easy thanks to its silicone sleeve. All you have to do is wash it with soap or with a specialized cleaning product. Rinse with warm water. Then have it dry before storage. 

Different Sleeves

Handy offers two different types of their TrueGrip sleeve — open-ended and closed-ended. 

They’re both surprisingly good — I was expecting them to be mediocre when I first saw them, but the soft textures and easy fit made them work wonders once strapped in. 

The Handy Sex Toy Review texture

The open-ended sleeves are a bit tighter but still comfortable for any size, and in motion, they grip realistically. 

But a huge part of the appeal of the Handy is it works with any small to medium size sleeve. 

Fleshlight Quickshots, generic pocket pussies, Tenga sleeves… if you’ve got one already you can give it a shot and see how well it works for you. 

Some sleeves give more resistance which can heat up the motor but also feel more realistic, like the Tenga Spinner.

The up and down combined with the twisting motion was insane, but I noticed the mechanism struggling to move quickly. Still, I came in like 3 minutes so who’s worried about overheating? 

The Handy’s Sleeve

The Handy’s Sleeve

To give a bit of variety to one’s wanking needs, Handy has created several adorable and valuable accessories, which brings us to the most recent of my encounters — The Dream Sleeve Collection, consisting of the Lotus, Lips, and Touch. 

Dream Sleeve Lotus

Dream Sleeve Lotus

Design-wise, the Lotus intends to evoke the experience of vaginal sex. So, the chambers’ nubs and canals all have a similar sensation to the real thing.

The entryway itself has ridges. And the tightness and nubbed interior can help you stay stimulated from the base to the tip.

Dream Sleeve Lips

Dream Sleeve Lips

As for the Lips, this sleeve strives to provide you with the best deep-throating experience possible.

So you have tiny lined nubs that help pleasure your frenulum. And you also have ridges that feel tongue-like that would undoubtedly have you undergo an out-of-body experience. 

Dream Sleeve Touch

Dream Sleeve Touch

The Touch is the closest you can get to a human hand. This sleeve can help keep your dick in place while, at the same time, it can help it stay stimulated. 

From my experience, I enjoyed using deeper strokes when using this open-ended sleeve since the stimulation is similar to a real handjob. Five tiny finger-like ridges within the accessory enhance the sensation. And the sleeve’s nubs that run parallel to these ridges offer an incredible tease for an orgasmic finish. 

TrueGrip™ Gen 2

TrueGrip™ Gen 2

The Handy TrueGrip Gen 2 Sleeve is based on the classic Original TrueGrip design, but with a longer length, thicker opening lip, and a textured outside surface to create a more secure hold (or a different sensation if flipped inside-out).

The longer length means that it can be held with a double-handed grip, creating more possibilities if used by itself outside of the Handy. 

Mermaid Sleeve Pearl

Mermaid Sleeve Pearl

As the name suggests, the inside of the Pearl sleeve is dotted with soft pearl shapes in different sizes to massage the length of the shaft gently. The irregular placement of the pearls is designed to stimulate differently with each turn and stroke.

The additional pearls surrounding the opening of one end are perfect for massaging the tip of the penis. The arrangement of pearl forms gradually intensifies from one end to the other, so you can try using the Pearl from either end to see what sensation you like the best!

Mermaid Sleeve Coral

Mermaid Sleeve Coral

A short, open-ended sleeve designed for targeted stimulation. Firm but pliable nubs spiral around the inner length of the Coral sleeve, creating a thrilling sensation in which you can focus exactly where you want because of its short length.

For those who are able to push the head of their penis out at the end to give their most sensitive area a break, this is great for edging and orgasm control during a session.


Noise Level

The Handy is surprisingly quiet, so it may be a solid contender for users that have several people in their household. 

Corded Power

The Handy requires a constant power source. So when using it, you must be close to a power outlet.

Yes, there are pros and cons to this arrangement.

Though the downsides are quite clear from the get-go: the toy is neither portable nor wireless. So if you’re looking for something otherwise, The Handy might not be for you.

On the other end, there are benefits as well. 

The engine is far more potent than rechargeable versions. Charging it won’t be much of an issue. And overall, the toy is somewhat lighter due to the lack of a battery. 

Who is The Handy for?

The Handy sex toy, such as teledildonic and smart sex toys, are designed for individuals seeking to enhance their intimate experiences.

These innovative devices offer strong stimulation, satisfying users’ desires, and intensifying pleasure. With advanced technology, teledildonic sex toys deliver unparalleled sensations, even from a distance, through Wifi

Users can control and adjust settings remotely, making these toys more versatile and adaptable to individual preferences.

The combination of teledildonic features, smart functions, and robust power make these toys highly desired among users, reflected in their high ratings. These features make them ideal for elevating their intimate encounters and exploring new realms of pleasure.

How to Use The Handy

The Handy was a walk in the park for me. I don’t know if it comes down to my constant sex toy reviews, but the process was pretty simple.

All you do is connect the toy to a power outlet. Insert your penis into the sleeve. Then, put one hand on top of the gadget for security.

Make sure the strap is tight enough to hold the device in place. Then, use the power button to turn the toy on.

And from there, you can change the preferred strokes using the four buttons on the Handy. 

My Experience with the Handy: The Handy Review

Lazy guys take note: it has a learning curve. 

It’s not difficult to use, but getting it perfect takes some practice. 

The first few times I used it I ended up cumming too fast and not really enjoying the whole process. 

I wanted to start out slow, build it up, try out different speeds and stroke lengths. But nope — the Handy turned me into a two-pump chump! 

That should tell you just how good the Handy is. Even the sleeves were surprisingly awesome. 

The open and closed-ended sleeves both look pretty simple. Too simple, even. Comparing them to the more interesting-looking Fleshlight textures, I was expecting disappointment.

Imagine my surprise. The bumps and nodules on the inside don’t look like much, but DAMN they deliver on sensation.

And even better: if you don’t like the sleeve they give you you can simply swap it out for another one. 

It won’t work with a full-size Fleshlight or anything like that. They’re too heavy; the motor struggles to keep them moving and is likely to overheat. 

The Handy Sex Toy Review with fleshlight

But a Quickshot? You bet. 

Tenga sleeves? Most definitely. 

And it has all those interactive features! You can download funscripts and go to town with connectivity. 

I like the Fleshlight Launch, but the lack of interactive options felt like a missed opportunity. 

So then Handy said, “hold my Aquavit” and stepped in to fill that gap. 

And I didn’t even tell you about my favorite part of the mechanism yet… 

I LOVE that it pushes against me while in motion. When it’s stroking deeper the motor keeps pushing through the resistance, but it slows down.

I don’t know if this is an intentional feature or not, but it does an amazing job of adding some realism to the experience. 

Think about it. When you’re having sex you don’t thrust at exactly the same speed all the time. That would be pretty strange! 

So the variation makes it feel amazing. Get the stroke speed, length, and sleeve all right and it is mind-meltingly good. 

Cleaning And Maintenance The Smart Toy

Cleaning And Maintenance The Smart Toy

The best part about cleaning it is you can simply detach the sleeve and turn it inside out. Handy’s proprietary sleeves are invertible, so you just flip them around and rinse them out with mild soap and water. 

If ease of cleaning is important to you, the Handy is a good option. 

Many other sleeves that will fit the Handy can also be inverted, so you shouldn’t have too many problems with cleaning. 

This is especially nice when you compare it to the Kiiroo Keon or Fleshlight Universal Launch, both of which use big Fleshlight sleeves that are much harder to clean and dry out.

The Handy: Where To Buy One?

The Handy: Where To Buy One?

The Handy is available directly from their website, where it retails for around $170. Cheaper than many of its competitors but a luxury price tag nonetheless. Still, it feels like a bargain. 

Discount & Promotions

Also we got a special discount code ALPHA that gives 20USD off for any order above 150 USD (which makes the price of Handy – $150).

 Shipping Policy

The Handy has a return policy of 14 days after users receive the shipment. So if approved, you will receive a refund using the same payment method you used when making the transaction.

All shipping expenses, clearance fees, and handling costs are under the exclusive control of the purchaser as well. 

You may email to start the refund process. Though keep in mind there’s an invoice amount of 10 USD/EUR.

Return Policy

What’s more, they currently have a 14-day trial period where you can return it no questions asked and get your money back (minus the shipping fees). I wish other companies were so generous with their returns policies!

What Do Other People Think About It?

I got The Handy fairly recently and I can say with full confidence, it is the best. King of the hill. It’s fairly lightweight and easy to handle. It has a very quiet (not silent) motor. It can go really slow. It can go really fast. It can do broad full strokes. It can do quick small strokes. It can be synced to video (VR coming soon). It can be remotely controlled. It can fit nearly any sleeve on the market, and comes packaged with a sleeve that is actually pretty great already. AND BEST OF ALL, at $160, it is less expensive than it’s competitors.”

The Handy: Alternative Sex Toys

Handy Vs. Kiiroo Keon

I already mentioned the Kiiroo Keon, which I’ve reviewed and loved before. It’s just as good as the Handy in my opinion, but it excels in different areas. 

But which one is for you? 

Here’s a handy (heh) table to help you decide: 

The Handy
  • APP AND INTERACTIVITY: Interactive porn and app control, scripts are more responsive
  • STROKE LENGTH: Adjustable stroke length and speed up to 600/min
  • CONVENIENCE: Smaller and lighter
  • SLEEVE TYPE: Works with small to medium size sleeves eg. Tenga Spiral, Quickshot
Kiiroo Keon
  • APP AND INTERACTIVITY: Interactive porn and app control, overall easier to use
  • STROKE LENGTH: Adjustable stroke length and speed up to 250/min
  • CONVENIENCE: Bulkier and heavier
  • POWER SUPPLY: Wireless
  • SLEEVE TYPE: Works with larger sleeves eg. Fleshlights

Each one has certain advantages over the other. The Handy is lighter and has a higher maximum speed, but the Keon is no slouch in either department and can also be used wirelessly. 

For me, it comes down to which sleeves you prefer. If you want full-size Fleshlight sleeves or similar, go for the Keon

Pro Tip

You can use the discount code SEXUALALPHA to get 10% off on purchases from Kiiroo.

Smaller pocket sleeves more your jam? Go for the Handy.

Either way, you’ll be getting one of the best automatic strokers 2023 has to offer. 

Handy Vs. Autoblow A.I.+

With the Handy, you can attach different sleeves to give you a bit of variety in your options. But when it comes down to the overall number of strokes and speed settings, the Autoblow A.I.+ is far superior. 

Here’s a table to help you decide:

The Handy
  • APP AND INTERACTIVITY: Interactive porn and app control, scripts are more responsive
  • STROKE LENGTH: Adjustable stroke length and speed up to 600/min
  • CONVENIENCE: Smaller and lighter
  • SLEEVE TYPE: Works with small to medium size sleeves eg. Tenga Spiral, Quickshot
Autoblow A.I.+
  • APP AND INTERACTIVITY: Browser-based app control
  • STROKE LENGTH: 10 built-in intensity levels with varying strokes and speeds
  • CONVENIENCE: Bulkier and heavier
  • SLEEVE TYPE: Works with A.I.+’s sleeve range

If you prefer a more personal remote experience, both toys offer associated apps that you and your partner can enjoy.

As for the relatively quiet audibility, the Handy generates much more mechanical noise than the A.I.+ when stroking at intense speeds.

Although, the interchangeable grips on both toys still make them both amazing. You can create a personalized fit by tightening the gripper on the A.I.+ or the strap on the Handy.

During one extended session, I discovered that the Handy strap loosened, which required me to make some slight adjustments midway. And although it wasn’t much of a hassle, it ruined my whole momentum moving forward. 

While the Handy is great at resonating handjobs, the A.I.+ also offers patterns that hit sensitive pints around the penis. So it all depends on your preference.

The A.I.+ has far more possibilities than the Handy. However, the latter is a much more affordable option.

Handy Vs. Lovense Max 2

Are you looking to take your pleasure to new heights? Let’s dive into futuristic pleasure devices and compare The Handy Sex Toy and Lovense Max 2, two excellent products designed to satisfy your desires.

Here’s a table to help you decide:

The Handy
  • APP AND INTERACTIVITY: Interactive porn and app control, scripts are more responsive
  • STROKE LENGTH: Adjustable stroke length and speed up to 600/min
  • CONVENIENCE: Smaller and lighter
  • SLEEVE TYPE: Works with small to medium size sleeves eg. Tenga Spiral, Quickshot
Lovense Max 2
  • APP AND INTERACTIVITY: Interactive porn, Remote, and App Control best for LDR couples
  • STROKE LENGTH: 3 levels, 360-degree contractions, and have air vents that can adjust how hard or light it sucks
  • CONVENIENCE: Quiet bulkier when using, not that heavy
  • POWER SUPPLY: Wireless
  • SLEEVE TYPE: Detachable realistic sleeve, Accommodates most sizes

Starting with Lovense Max 2, this incredible creation offers an unforgettable experience. Its strong vibration capabilities are perfect for those seeking intensifying sensations.

Controlled via a smartphone app, the Lovense Max 2 allows you to experiment with various settings and customize your personal pleasure journey.

With its Wi-Fi-connected feature, you can indulge in long-distance adventures with that special someone, no matter how far apart you may be. 

Made with TPE material, Lovense Max 2 ensures a realistic and pleasurable encounter every time. Its revolutionary design guarantees a mind-blowing session, and the company behind it has a reputation for producing top-notch products.

In comparison, The Handy Sex Toy is a game-changer this innovative machine takes pleasure to the next level.

The Handy’s versatile controls allow a fully customizable experience catering to your desires. But compared to Lovense Max 2 offers more customizable, realistic sex with a partner and is much cheaper than The Handy’s Hand job experience.

The Lovense Max 2 and The Handy Sex Toy are groundbreaking products in the world of pleasure. They combine modern technology with high-quality materials to create unforgettable experiences. 

So, whether you choose Lovense Max 2 for its strong vibrations and long-distance capabilities or The Handy Sex Toy for its automated strokes and customizable features, you can’t go wrong – it’s all about finding the perfect adventure!

It’s well-made, fast, fits a huge variety of sleeves and has some of the best interactive options I’ve seen in a masturbator so far.
