Sex Toys That Every Couple Should Try

Toys to try

Sex toys have come a long way since the days of Dr. Joseph Mortimer Granville’s “electro-mechanical vibrator” hit the scene in 1883. You’ve got sleeves, dildos, props, plugs, things that go in places, things that go on places, and things that go just about anywhere. Just like sex, there are many types of toys and even more ways to enjoy them.

There are probably more sex toys out there than you could use in a lifetime, and each of them more versatile than you can imagine (but, go ahead and try). Some solo sex toys can even translate into a great shared experience for you and your partner, but some are made with both of you in mind.

After gathering data, we curated a list of accessories, tools, and toys, guaranteed to rock both your socks off. Here, you’ll find the best treats you can use with a partner (or even just to amp up your solo playtime).

Adults need toys too. Have a little grown-up fun.


Linea Versa

Linea

This vibrator is ideal for couples in which one partner has a penis and one has a vagina. Each end of the toy does something different: The penetrative end can be inserted for internal vaginal vibrations, and the circular end can be used as a masturbation sleeve for penises. Couples can use the Versa at the same time. Simply place the circle around the penis as the lengthy end slides inside the vagina.

 

The (Hitachi) Magic Wand

Magic Wand

The Hitachi Magic Wand is referred to as the “Cadillac of vibrators” for a reason. It’s big, it’s powerful, and it’s reliable. Originally created to relax muscles, the wand quickly gathered a cult following as a vibrator for its undeniable ability to relax people (especially those with clits) in other ways. While the sex toy works wonders for solo play, it’s fun to use in a relationship to help a partner with a vagina reach orgasm during penetrative sex. For those into BDSM, the magic wand is often used by the dominant on the submissive partner to bring the sub to orgasm while they’re bound or tied up.

 

Chain Nipple Clamps

Nipple Clamps

Anyone with nipples can enjoy nipple clamps. While the toy can be used solo, experimenting with a partner can be especially fun if you’re exploring BDSM. The dominant partner (the one exerting control over the sex scene) will usually place the clamps on the submissive’s nipples. This pair in classic S&M black and red is useful for beginners, since they are adjustable. Begin by placing the clamps on the nipples with light pressure, and adjust the little screw as wanted to tighten for more intense sensations.

 

Beginner’s Butt Plug

Butt plugs are a must-have for any couple interested in anal play, and they don’t have to be used solo: They can be worn during vaginal intercourse for dual-penetration with a partner. It’s important to start small, so this little guy is a perfect plug for beginners. Just don’t forget to use lube when inserting anal toys into your butt.

 

Clone-A-Willy In-Home Penis Molding Kit 

Clone a

If your partner has a penis, this aptly-named “Clone-A-Willy” lets you create a silicone mold of it — one that vibrates. Ideal for couples in long-distance relationships, the toy comes in a variety of skin tones, so you can get as realistic as you’d like. (You also have the option to make it neon pink and glow-in-the-dark, which…yes.) If creating a penis clone sounds daunting, fear not: According to customer reviews, the Clone-A-Willy comes with detailed and easy to follow instructions

 

Ours Fetish Kit

If you’re curious about adding BDSM to your relationship, but unsure of where to start, this starter kit is just what you need. It contains wrist and ankle cuffs, a ball gag, a blindfold, nipple suckers, and a tickler for teasing. Just be sure to learn about some BDSM best practices, and then get ready to dip your toes into the world of kink.

 

Big O Multi-Stage Vibrating Penis Ring

Big O

This vibrating penis ring promises to keep you both stimulated and satisfied.

 

OhMiBod LoveLife & Share Vibrating Ring

LoveLife.jpg

This snug vibrating ring is one you and your partner can enjoy together. Don’t let its compact size fool you — with seven different vibration settings, the Love Life vibrator packs enough energy for the both of you.

 

Entice Kegel Balls

Entice

This kegel bead set is here to turn up the heat on your foreplay sessions.

Inspired by Ben Wa balls, the Entice Kegel Balls is a set of two beads connected with a retrieval wire that promises to deliver some seriously unique pleasure. The inner balls are meant to respond to movement with subtle vibrations, making them perfect to use with a partner.

 

Lelo SIRI 2

Siri 2

The only thing better than a vibrator with eight different settings is a vibrator that vibrates to eight different settings, according to your music.

Lelo’s SIRI 2 works as a regular vibrator sans-music as well, but should you wish, you can also get creative and sync your music library to let it pulse to the beat of your any song you choose. Bonus: it also boasts Lelo’s “strongest vibrations ever,” and is 100% waterproof. Sure, you can use it solo, but letting your partner take the reins is half the fun.

 

We-Vibe 4 Plus

We-Vibe 4.jpg

This is the perfect couples’ sex toy — it was designed specifically to be used during intercourse. The U-shaped toy has one curved arm to stimulate the clit and another to rest in the vagina during intercourse — and it provides enough vibration and simulation for both partners.

Added bonus: It can be controlled by an app on your phone. This makes it pretty ideal for long-distance relationships (talk about taking sexting to another level), but that doesn’t mean couples who get tons of face-to-face time can’t enjoy it, too. You and your partner can download the free We-Vibe 4+ app and connect your toy to it by inputting the serial number. You can then invite each other to “connect” on the app and sync up. We’ll let you take it from there.

 

Liberator Heart Wedge
Heart Wedge

Yes, fine, it looks like a physical-therapy aid. But, the Liberator is a cult classic for very good reason. It’s an extremely firm and durable cushion that makes so many sex acts more comfortable (and those hard-to-reach spots very, very reachable).

Use it under your pelvis during oral sex. Try using it for elbow support during…anything that requires elbow support. There’s really nothing else like it for new or tricky positions. Sometimes, all you need is a little boost.

 

Soy Massage Candle

Massage candle

Scented candles are always a gamble. Will it be too strong, too sweet, too “sensual?” This line really gets it right — fragrant, but not overpowering.

But, the coolest thing about massage candles is their double duty. The oil melts at a lower temperature than wax, so you can pour or brush the melted candle directly onto skin without burning anybody.

 

JO Premium Silicone Lube

JO premium.jpg

A lot of people get weird about lube, frantically insisting, “I don’t need it!” as if human worth were judged by the ability to self-lubricate. The truth is, even if you don’t “need” lube, per se, it can make so many things so much more fun (and comfortable).

JO Premium, as the name suggests, is the ultimate. It’s silicone, meaning it’s hypoallergenic and will not be absorbed into your skin.

How To Use A Vibrator

thinking

This was originally posted on Kinkly, but I added some helpful links for ya : )

We often have a look at the search terms people enter into our site. It’s part of our business, but it’s also an effort to get to know our readers better. What are you into? What you searching for that we haven’t covered? What are we missing? We’ve learned some interesting and important things. But we were a bit surprised to see a number of searches for:

“How to use a vibrator.”

Our first reaction to that was kind of, like, really? I mean, don’t you just kind of turn the thing on and … apply it … to the affected area?

But then we thought about it some more, and it’s actually a really good question. Because, of course, we shouldn’t just be interested in using a vibrator in a way that works, or that makes us feel pretty good, we should know how to use one to the best of its abilities, and to make us feel great. After all, making us feel awesome is what sex toys are all about.

So, here we answer one of your top questions about how to use a vibrator.

Remember That It’s Your Jazz

Rather than get all preachy and telling you where to stick it, why don’t we start this thing out right by making it very, very clear that there is no one right way to use any sex toy.

Many vibrators are designed to do certain things, such as stimulate the G-spot, or simulate oral sex on the clitoris, but the truth is that people can – and often do – find fun “off-label” ways to play with these toys too. And that is totally cool. People and their preferences are unique, so one of the best ways to use any sex toy is to experiment and follow what feels good to you. If you prefer the powerful rumble of that G-spot vibe on your clitoris, that’s just fine. If you’re using a sex toy and you’re feeling awesome, you’re doing it right, regardless of what it says on the package.

(Note, however, that there are few caveats here when it comes to safety. This means you’ll have to avoid things like putting porous toys or toys without a flared base in your butt. Got it? Play on.)

Looking to add a new toy to your collection? Check out JOPEN’s and WE-VIBE’s beautiful bestsellers.

Test Out the Controls

Whether you’re trying out a new vibrator or turning to an old favorite, it’s easy to get lazy. There! It’s on! It’s working!

But a lot of sex toys have a lot of different features, speeds and settings that can be a lot of fun. Test out your toy on your hand to discover all the things it can do. Yeah, you could test it out on more sensitive erogenous areas, but it’s really easy to get distracted and, you know, have an orgasm, before you get through all your vibe’s nifty settings.

Start Small

You’ll often hear sex toy manufacturers and reviewers touting a toy’s vibrating “power.” And, to be fair, a powerful vibrator can be a really amazing thing.

However, for many people, really strong vibration, particularly against the clitoris, can be overwhelming – and even unpleasant. If you aren’t too sure about the level of power that you need, start on the lowest setting. This will help get your body warmed up and accustomed to the sensation.

Physiologically, arousal increases your ability to withstand more intense stimulation. Allowing that arousal to happen to slowly can also help you build to a bigger, better climax. Too much stimulation too soon can also result in a numb feeling, which can really kill the mood, so start out on a low setting and work your way up.

Avoid Being Too Focused

OK, so remember how we said you can get creative and come up with your own way of using your vibrator? Well this one takes it one step further. Instead of being focused on your typical erogenous zones, try expanding your exploration to your hips, stomach breasts and whatever feels good. We often think of our so-called “private parts” as our only sexual areas, but the rest of the body can produce amazing sensations – even orgasm – if we’re open to it.

Use Lube

If there’s one universal sex tip out there that’ll help boost pleasure for just about anyone in any kind of sex act it’s use lube. You might remember to do this if you’re using your vibrator internally, but it works wonders when you’re using it externally as well.

You may not notice it, but vibration does create a bit of its own friction. Using lube can help reduce this, prevent irritation, allow you to play longer and ultimately make your play time that much more pleasurable. Try it!

A favorite for toy play is Toy Love. It’s thicker than most water based lubes on the market, so it stays where you put it. Plus, that gel consistency enhances the vibrations of your pleasure product.

Get to Know Your Anatomy

A lot sex advice is focused around tips like “tease your clitoris” or “massage your G-spot,” but it can be pretty hard to do those things when you aren’t quite sure where they are.

A lot of people don’t have a good sense of their own anatomy, where erogenous zones like the G-spot and perineal sponge are, or how to arouse them. Do some research here. Once you know your body, you’ll be more empowered to explore it to find your pleasure.

Try It With a Partner

We often think of vibrators as a solo tool. You know, for when you don’t have a partner. But that is a pretty limited way of thinking about all the things these toys can do.

Almost any vibe can be used for some sort of couples’ play, whether that means a partner using it on you, or slipping it between the two of you during sex for a little extra oomph.

We have some great tips on couples’ vibrators, as well as the etiquette for bringing a vibrator into couples’ play. So put that on your list of great ways to put your little vibrating friend to good use.

How do you use your vibrator? Share some tips with us in the comments!

9 Clever Ways To Introduce Sex Toys Without Damaging Your Man’s Ego

couple-kissing

Originally posted on Tickle Kitty

Men love their action figures, their video games and their power tools, but they can be totally iffy about toys of the sexual variety.

As silly as it may sound, sex toys are sometimes threatening to men. Men want to feel capable and needed by their women, so if toys are spontaneously brought into the bedroom, and/or used on the regular, it could give off the wrong impressions. Best thing to do is get him in on the fun.

So if you want your man to put away his video games and power tools (don’t worry he can finish your honey-do list and save the Mushroom Kingdom later) and spend more time playing with sex toys, we recommend considering these 9 tips:

  1. Be size wise.

Look, bringing a dildo or vibrator into the bedroom can already be awkward enough as it is. Men usually have a complex about having other dicks in the vicinity of their naked girlfriend, even if they aren’t real – especially if it’s more endowed than him! So your best bet is to choose a toy that’s smaller than him, and gradually move up in size over time.

A great just-getting-started small vibe like the Callie is perfect as it’s only 3 inches total. Or consider something totally non-phallic and non-intimidating like My Secret Vibrating Lipstick. You can invite him to paint your lips!

  1. Try going gender neutral.

Choose a ‘unisex’ style toy – that can be used for the both of your pleasures. The Bodywand is a great example of this. It’s so powerful and can be used all over both of your bodies: from butt massage, to nipple play – and everything in between. Or perhaps try the Sqweel GO!, which is also used topically on your erogenous zones, and is meant to imitate the act of being licked. Who wouldn’t want a tongue bath?

  1. Go for a couples toy.

There are many toys specially designed to give you both please, simultaneously. This angle of introduction will help even the playing field. The APEX Vibrating Penis Ring is a great option – it provides longer, harder erections for him, while offering those OMG! vibrations on your clitoris. You may even be able to orgasm at the same time!

Or, you can’t go wrong with the bestselling couples We-Vibe 4 Plus for APP-controlled flirty fun. Not only will he be able to control your orgasm from anywhere in the world, but it will also kind of feel like he is playing a sexy video game, because he gets to use the remote control. This will ensure that he’ll be having almost as much fun as you are.

  1. Try a subtle surprise.

In your cunning, cat-like way, surprise him softly with a small, harmless Classic Silver Bullet while giving him oral love. When you’ve got him by the balls, a guy will say yes to almost anything (please don’t use this for evil purposes).

Simply hide it under the pillow beforehand and slip it out with your free hand at the right moment and let him feel the vibrational pleasures at the base of his penis or on his balls while you continue your loving. You not hear a thing out of his mouth but stronger, louder, panting!

  1. Give him a show!

With a new vibe as your sidekick, use it on yourself, and let him sit back, watch and enjoy. Everyone knows almost every man loves to watch a woman masturbate. So play it up for him and see what he does next… Consider the Hello Touch for this amazing show, which is a non-intimidating toy that turns your fingertips into mini-vibrators. The best part is you can slip them onto him next and let his fingers do the walking!

  1. Make it all about his pleasure, first.

Prepare a little treasure trove of men’s playthings for him including a RingO PRO Silicone Penis Ring, Mood Powerball, and Apollo Automatic Head Pump – and you’ll be set. Let him lay back and enjoy the all the pleasures coming his way. If he’s a good sport, he’ll happily return the favors.

  1. Show him porn you like.

We’re fairly certain your man would be amped at the idea of watching porn with his lady. I mean, it’s pretty much every man’s dream (yes, most of our dreams are sexually charged).

This in turn leaves an excellent opportunity to introduce the world of sex toys to him, in a comfortable and familiar setting — a setting where he may even feel right at home in. Let’s be real, he’s probably been watching the stuff since he was 13.

So find a video that you enjoy, where they use toys like the kind you want to try such as the Booty Vibro Kit or the G-Gasm Dual Stimulator. As you both enjoy the show, tell him you want to experiment with said toy(s). Maybe put on the cute and sexy voice you sometimes use to make him weak. You know, the one you use to get him to put on deodorant or take out the garbage. Then ask him if he’d play toys with you. He may then be interested, so it’s be a good idea to have one handy!

  1. Make a sexy trade.

If the above methods don’t work, or you don’t want to encourage his porn addiction, you can always make a pleasure trade for something he wants (just to warn you: if we know anything about men — it will probably be anal – however never do anything unless YOU are comfortable with it). Whatever the pleasure trade may be, wouldn’t that trade be oh, so worth it if it meant you could bring something like the Womanizer Deluxe into the bedroom?

He’ll be so stoked about getting his wish, he won’t even think twice about any uncertainty he may have about using toys.

  1. Reassure him with good communication.

Feel free to express how much you would like to explore toys, already enjoy them, or would like to them enjoy them with him – and how super hot they get you. But also tell him how much you enjoy sex without the toys. Explain to him that you like to experiment and would enjoy exploring both forms of sex (with and without toys). It’s never a matter of him being “replaced” (which is impossible to do!), but rather being open to enhancing your sexual experiences together with the world of sex toys right at your fingertips.

He’s still on the fence? Then start easy with We’ve Never… But We Will! couple’s foreplay game – you can’t go wrong there!

How to Travel With Sex Toys

photo-1441035430039-1c421470b6c0.jpg

Originally posted on Glamour

It’s summer, which means that everyone’s working out their traveling plans. With all the stress-inducing logistics of getting from the airport to your destination, I think it’s only fair that you deserve to be having as much fun as legally possible. And we all know that one of the best parts of every vacation is vacation sex! So why not bring some extra stimulation to enhance your adventures?

Like a lot of people, you might be nervous about having your most intimate sexual secrets exposed in an International Terminal as the TSA follows that mysterious buzzing sound into your carry-on. Worse yet, what if they open your suitcase and now all your fellow travelers know that you’re REALLY into anal play. But are they going to arrest you for having too much fun?

Here’s the answer: no. Unless you’re flying in Alabama (which still has some bans on buying toys in state), you are certainly, legally allowed to travel with your sex toys. You can take sex toys through security (ask me about the time I was coming home from a sex toy convention in Vegas with multiple suitcases full of buzzing bunnies, wands and dildos)! Yes, you can even carry the master of all personal massagers the Magic Wand through security either tucked into your bag or walking through the terminal waving it like a fairy princess! (Although you may not want to draw that much attention.)

One thing a lot of people worry about is the device turning on mid-travels. I’ve learned some creative ways to pack my toys to avoid in-flight luggage shifting inadvertently bumping the button and turning on my fully charged or battery-operated buddies. The easiest solution is The Boot Trick: tuck the toy into a boot to keep it secure. You can also wrap your toys in bubble wrap or put a cardboard tube around the part with the button (like a toilet paper or paper towel tube). Another easy fix is to take the batteries out, and replace them when you get to the hotel. For toys that use a charger, just leave them running before you pack to drain their battery and recharge them when you reach your destination.

As far as travel-friendly toys go, Jopen makes all their vibrators with a travel lock function specifically designed for this purpose. Here are a few of my don’t-leave-home-without-the-fun favorites:

  1.  My Secret Vibrating Lipstick is a super-powered, discreet mini vibe that looks just like lipstick, and can be tucked away in your cosmetic bag. With a soft silicone Flex-Tip, this massager is angled for smooth, targeted stimulation right where it counts with a whisper-quiet motor that buzzes at 3 strong speeds with a bonus pulsating “tease” mode. Travel-friendly, compact and portable, this Lipstick Vibe will give you a fresh-faced look that could only come from The Screaming O.
  2. The Womanizer Deluxe. For the ultimate discretion, you can choose a sex toy that doesn’t look like a toy at all! This innovative German-engineered toy recreates the sensation of oral sex using multi-intensity levels of indirect clitoral stimulation. Not only is it incredibly quiet, it actually looks more like a bedazzled ear thermometer than a device. The TSA will have no idea what they’re waving through.
  3. The Magic Wand. Want to skip all the fancy bells and whistles and just pack a powerful orgasmic punch? The Magic Wand is a classic that keeps people coming…back, again and again. It’s a bigger travel companion, but my Boot Trick is an easy solution to save on space. Plus, you’ve got options! You can choose between the OG version with an electrical cord or the new rechargeable model.

The bottom line is this: No matter where in the world we travel, we can keep our sex lives interesting and fun without worrying about “getting caught.” Rest assured that by bringing one of these vibrators along with you you’re not doing anything wrong. At the very worst, there could be an awkward exchange if a TSA agent isn’t quite sure what they’re holding. But in my EXTENSIVE experience, they’re always a good conversation starter! Just keep your sense of humor. Happy travels!
