Take it from someone whose routine trip to the GYN turned into a kerfuffle of mis[fat]diagnosis--when a doctor is supposed to be treating you for something and launches into the fat talk you can politely tell them "I am not here to discuss my weight with you. I am here to discuss my bits, my HIV status and whether I am at risk for cancers." I like to have a mantra to prepare ahead of time.
Welcome one and all (who are knowingly entering into this adult-themed conversation)! This is Fat Sex Week XXL, the second edition of QueerFatFemme.com Fat Sex Week where I explore many facets of fat sex. Named for Magic Mike XXL, which was even better than the first Magic Mike, I’m hoping this edition is louder and fatter than ever before! Check this tag for all of the posts!
My pal Buck Angel created a sex toy specifically for trans men! I thought Fat Sex Week XXL was a great opportunity to find out from my Fat FTM friends if the stroker works for all bodies.
From the website: The Buck-OFF™ – The official Buck Angel® stroker is the first product designed specifically for transmen to engage in stroking fun. Every man loves to stroke, but not every man is the same. We engineered this using Buck’s vision for how the product should feel and fit. Buck has a mission to help transmen become comfortable with their bodies, and the Buck-OFF is an exceptional product for achieving this. Made with Perfect Fit’s ultra-soft SilaSkin™ the Buck-OFF is so pleasurable to touch it is addictive. This is Buck’s signature toy sized for the transman who has started transition. As Buck says “Loving your new body is what it’s all about.”
My friend Dari said, “Buck-OFF is the only toy, since my growth through testosterone, that took me to the edge and let me keep going and prolong my orgasm without becoming too sensitive to touch.”
At our Epic Seder last year we did an interactive play and Dari had the role of a guard. Such a hunk!
Another, anonymous friend, got a free Buck-OFF to review for Fat Sex Week XXL. Here’s what he had to say:
If you haven’t yet heard of it, the Buck-OFF is a sex toy designed by Buck Angel and specifically marketed to transmen. It’s a small, 3” or so sleeve made of a proprietary material called Silaskin- very soft and velvety to the touch. The inside of the sleeve is ribbed and its closed-end design enables suction when the user strokes.

I enjoyed the Buck-OFF very much. It took some experimenting to figure out what felt best and how to manipulate it properly, but the basic premise is pretty straightforward. Depending on the person, this could be a quick and easy go-to toy when you want to get off fast, or it could be more of a session toy when you want to take your time. For me, it took some time to find my way to the finish but it felt pretty damn good along the way.
A word on size. While a pre-T guy with larger-than-average genitals could find this product useful, the Buck-OFF is definitely designed for guys taking testosterone as growth is really necessary for the mechanics to work. The more growth you have, the better this will feel. I also found it helpful to get hard before using it as it made it easier to get a good “fit.”

Speaking of fit, I did find it a challenge to maintain the suction as consistently as I would have liked. If you have a larger mons pubis, you may have to work a little harder to find and keep the proper positioning. This was not insurmountable, just something to keep in mind if you have this body feature.
Other reviewers have indicated that lube is optional, but I would highly recommend using a few drops of a water-based lubricant inside the sleeve. It definitely helps with suction and also helps avoid potentially unpleasant friction in your most sensitive areas.
At a price point of $29.95, I think the Buck-OFF is a good value. Depending on vigor and frequency of use, I could see it wearing out over time but nothing good lasts forever.
I happily endorse the Buck-OFF and will definitely be adding it to my repertoire.
Another friend (P) reached out to me on Facebook to give me feedback as a self-identified fat kinky FTM. He said that he had trouble using it as a stroker because of his fat being centered around the belly. (For those of you who don’t know, not all fat bodies are identical! We all carry fat in different places and the experience of someone with fat thighs vs a fat belly are different, even though they might wear the same exact size!) Because of the belly fat it was harder to reach the spot because the Buck-OFF is small.
However, because he’s a sex proclaimed kinky pervert, his intrepid exploration lead to these hacks. “Take a nipple pump cylinder (also used as a clit pump). Put the stroker over it inside out. Add lube. Now it is reachable and lil guy can fit inside it.” I think this is a call for Buck to design the Buck-OFF fleshlight, with a big handle like the Fleshlights built for different size genitalia.
The second hack my friend P had was the turn the whole stroker inside out (textured side out) and put it over a hitachi magic wand. It apparently is very pleasurable. It’s always nice to have some back-up ways to use a sex toy.
Word on the street is that Buck is in development on a new stroker for folks who have not taken T!
I hope these reviews are helpful!
