The Handy Review: Is This The BEST Handjob Machine In 2024?! [TRIED & TESTED]

The Handy Review

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 automatic 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. 

In this The Handy review, I share my insights after 3-month testing this handjob machine. 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, I also have a special discount code ALPHA, that gives 20 USD 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

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? 

The Handy’s 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 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? 

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

The Handy’s Key Functionality

Adjustable Strokes 

the handy masturbator review

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. 

This VR porn site has a free app, so you can access it easily; also, a single subscription will already have everything you want. The only negative thing about this site is that it can be expensive compared to other alternatives. So it would be best if you considered it before purchasing a subscription.

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

You don’t have to worry about this toy not fitting your package. The Handy’s creators gave an adaptive design that fits different sizes. Also, they have different sleeves and the True Grip feature that can help you adjust to your 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. 

handy sex toy

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 handy sex toy

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? 

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

The Handy’s Sleeve

handy masturbator

The Handy is already great on its own, but after using the same thing for a while, I always get bored. Put your old sleeve to rest and give yourself a new one, which, lucky you! The Handy provides different types of sleeves, and I’m sure you’ll like one.😉

Now, I’ve listed down the best Handy sleeves and accessories so you don’t have to spend your time raking up your brain on what to buy:

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 TrueGrip is an intensely textured, extra-long sleeve for medium to large sizes. It feels fantastic on the slow settings of the Handy and is, therefore, great for long sessions. 

The sleeve is close-ended and textured on both sides, so you can even reverse it and enjoy a different texture. With this one, You get the fun of two sleeves in a single sleeve.

Mermaid Sleeve Pearl

Mermaid Sleeve Pearl

The Mermaid Sleeve Pearl lives up to its name because it truly is a gem. Covered with soft round nubs, this open-ended sleeve has a gentle yet stimulating texture that will keep even long-term users happy. 

The texture intensity increases from one end of the sleeve to the other, so you can flip it depending on whether you want more stimulation near the tip of the penis and frenulum or at the base. Both are great options.

Mermaid Sleeve Coral

Mermaid Sleeve Coral

This sleeve is relatively short, but don’t let its size fool you. The spiral texture is made for extra stimulation, and the small size means you can use it for targeted inspiration. Of course, since it is open-ended, a bit more clean-up is required. However, the pleasure it offers is worth the extra work.


The Handy’s Extra Accessories

If you want to take your milking game to the next level, these accessories will make your hot sessions even more pleasurable!

From attachment to grip bands, the accessories give you a realistic feeling, which I bet will lead to intense orgasms. Now, you can take a look at my favorite Handy accessories below:

Handsfree Cup

Handsfree Cup

This one is possibly my favorite accessory; frankly, it’s pretty genius. The Handy Handsfree Cup lets you attach your toy to a camera or microphone stand and, therefore, enjoy complete handsfree pleasure! 

It’s so simple yet effective, and if your stand supports multiple devices, you can also use it to hold your phone and tablet so you can watch your favorite adult content while the Handy does its job. Of course, you’ll have to have a sturdy stand because you don’t want things falling over during a session.

True Grip PRO Band

True Grip PRO Band

This is called the PRO band for a reason. With extra grippy textures on both sides, this elastic band holds your sleeve securely to your Handy, allowing you to go wild without worrying about any slippages. 

I’d recommend every Handy user to get one of these, and it would be great if it were included with the toy. But it’s pretty cheap and has good build quality, so it’ll last you for many pleasurable sessions.

Extra True Grip Band

Extra True Grip Band

The True Grip Band is the regular elastic band that comes included with your hands and helps secure the sleeve to the toy. Getting an extra band is a good idea because, in the unlikely event that your band snaps, you’ll have another one ready to go. 

And don’t get me wrong, these Handy True Grip Bands are very durable, so it is not likely that you’ll have to change one. However, it’s good to have a spare band on hand when you do have to change it.


Noise Level

To be honest, I didn’t expect The Handy to be surprisingly quiet. Now that I think about it, if you have roommates in your household, this will be good for you as they won’t even know you are having a hot session with yourself.

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 innovative sex toys, are designed for individuals seeking to enhance their intimate experiences.

The device offers intense stimulation, satisfying users’ desires and intensifying pleasure. With advanced technology, teledildonic sex toys deliver unparalleled sensations, even from a distance, through Wi-Fi. The Handy is also quiet! So people in a household full of people will love using this alternatively to your hands.

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

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.

Handy Sex Toy Review: My Experience with the Handy

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 stroker

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. 

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

Cleaning And Maintenance Your Handy Smart Toy

keon vs handy

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 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?

handy stroker

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

 Shipping Policy

The Handy has a return policy of 30 days You can return your product(s) within 30 days of receiving them if they are inside the sealed shipping box.

If you want to return any item, please contact in advance for return instructions, customs information and return address.

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. 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 2024 has to offer. 

Handy Vs. Autoblow A.I.+

With The Handy, there are different sleeves you can attach that give you options. But regarding the number of strokes and your desired speed, the Autoblow A.I.+ wins!

So 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.


What is The Handy?

The Handy is a wireless male masturbator that you or your partner can operate remotely. The device can also sync to various porn archives to help you enjoy a realistic VR sex experience.

Where is The Handy Manufactured?

The Handy was first manufactured in Norway by Jens Petter Wilhelmsen and Alexander Arish Bjørkmann — two business partners that founded the sex-tech company SweetTech AS. 

Is The Handy Worth It?

The Handy is a perfect choice if you are sick of your handjob sessions. Especially if you are in a long-distance relationship, it will help you experience the intimacy you desperately want with your partner.

First, it might be pricey for you, but the experience you’ll get after buying is surely worth it, take it as an investment of some sort.

Final Thoughts

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.

What more could you want?

Well, maybe a desk or wall mount. Handy, if you’re reading this — wall mount. Get your engineers on it. 

Anyway, if you wanna see more about the Handy and what other people think, take a look and don’t forget to have fun out there! 

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