Like the Shegasm 5 Star Rabbit we like, the Inya Sonnet provides dual stimulation, offering both clitoral suction and internal vibration. At $55, it’s half the price as the Shegasm model, although it lacks the thumping mechanism that makes the 5 Star Rabbit a standout. The Sonnet is a fine toy, but our tester preferred the 5 Star Rabbit overall. The 5 Star Rabbit is also covered by a longer warranty (five years versus the Sonnet’s one).

Runner-up: Magic Wand Plus

We’re here to recommend the best sex toys for women, so you’d be right to assume we’re writing for women. But this is also a reminder for guys who might be shopping for a woman that they don’t need to be uncomfortable about bringing toys into the bedroom. Your average vibrator probably doesn’t hit more than a quarter of your clitoris. But behold, a new wave of sex toys are providing an all-encompassing experience.

This luxe metal plug is blissfully smooth, compatible with all lubricants, and heavy enough to be pleasantly noticeable but not so heavy as to be uncomfortable. Though it also comes in small and large versions, the medium one is an ideal size for most anal newbies. We’re partial to this soft, silky mask from Blissy, which is as great for hair and skin as it is at allowing you to try bondage play. Yoga and meditation lovers, put that bolster to uses other than back stretching. Bolsters are excellent for humping, Queen says, as they’re a bit like bunched-up pillows but firmer—meaning you’ll get better stimulation from rubbing yourself on them. “A bathrobe is something that lots of people have sitting around, and its tie can be used as a blindfold and for bondage,” Jenn Mason, the owner of WinkWink Boutique, tells SELF.

Best Butterfly Vibrator: PinkCherry Wearable Butterfly Vibe

I received my master of public health degree in 2014 from Indiana University, where I assisted research scientist Debra Herbenick with academic and consumer research related to sex-toy use. While at Indiana University, I worked as a blogger and sex educator at The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction. This suction vibrator provides diffuse, customizable sensations in a small, convenient size. We considered various factors during our evaluations, including performance, functionality, materials used, noise level, and overall user experience. We aimed to provide an unbiased assessment of these pleasure products, so our readers can make informed decisions that align with their desires and preferences.

Our journalists combine independent research with over-the-top testing so you can make quick and confident buying decisions. Whether it’s finding great products or discovering helpful advice, we’ll help you get it right . We recommend storing toys in boxes or pouches to keep them dust-free and putting them in a cool, dark place where they will not have exposure to direct sunlight. Many high-end manufacturers include cloth pouches or attractive storage boxes with their toys. The two models look virtually identical, but only the Magic Wand Rechargeable can retain a charge and operate when not plugged in. Although the cord is removable , it is required to operate this plug-in toy.

I reach for this toy when I’m in a woo-woo mood and want to focus on self-love, since rose quartz is said to represent unconditional love. It’s naturally cold to the touch—perfect for hot days—and will look like gorgeous sex toys for women on your nightstand. With no G-spot curve to speak of, it might disappoint some users, but the feeling of fullness it provides—in your vagina and apparently in your heart too—can be satisfying nonetheless.

Unfortunately, we found the toy’s vibrations to be a bit buzzy compared to those of the rumbly and similarly shaped We-Vibe Tango . But you can sanitize and even sterilize some toys using other simple methods. The toy has an IPX7 waterproof rating and is made from molded silicone and plastic, so it’s relatively easy to clean. It comes with a one-year warranty, plus a 10-year guarantee that allows you to purchase a replacement model for 50% of the original price should your toy break in the decade following the initial year of coverage. With eight vibration settings, this stimulation can range from gentle to extremely intense, and a little goes a long way.

The small device tucks in against your clit and the flexible arms extend ever so slightly underneath the labia majora to keep the vibrator in place. Long story short, you won’t have to keep adjusting this toy during sex, no matter how vigorous things get. These are typically bigger vibrators used to stimulate the clit or other external zones. Vibrations can feel wonderful on nipples, but it’s rare to find a toy designed specifically for this purpose. The tightness of these clamps is adjustable, so you can find the exact balance of pain to pleasure that you’re looking for. Connect the toy to the Lovense app on your phone to control it more easily, or to invite a long-distance partner to control it.

Opt for a plastic curtain over a fabric one, and cover your existing bedsheets with it before you get down and dirty. Of course, if you don’t own any plush toys, a throw pillow works just as well. If you’ve got a penis and a plush toy nearby, “cut a hole so you can insert your penis into the interior and do your thing,” O’Neill advises.
