Lucky for us, sex toys have come a long way since the days of the steam-powered ones. There is now a huge assortment of sex toys that are available, affordable, and don’t require anything more than batteries or an AC adaptor to power them.
We at Faveable recently covered the best vibrators for women. And you know what? We thought that was a little unfair. Sure, women sometimes need extra “assistance” in the bedroom, but what about everyone else?
Want to know the best part?
After countless hours of research, we’ve narrowed down this list of the best sex toys. We’ve got the best ones for men, women, couples, gay, straight, adventurous, and even those that just want to test the waters.
Sex toys aren’t for everyone—and that’s totally cool. BUT, if you’ve ever thought something was missing during your personal pleasure time or if you’re simply curious about adult toys, check out this list. You may be surprised by what you find (and enjoy)!
While this is our pick for the best sex toy for lesbians, it really can be used for any couple that wants to play around with artificial pegging in a sexy, sleek, and comfortable way.
This is only a harness. Dildo needs to be purchased separately.
Solo or Duo: While only one of you can wear this, its intent is for duo play.
Stimulation: Aside from having a soft, comfortable harness to wear, the stimulation from this sex toy will come from whatever add-on toy you use it with.
Strength: While the harness itself won’t do anything to penetrate or titillate, it is known for fitting well, not chafing, and holding up to long-term use so you can be comfortable while wearing it.
Special Features: There are built-in pockets so you can store vibrators for the wearer’s pleasure. Some customers have also said that the harness can be used with double-ended dildos for double your pleasure.
Price: This is a pricey one alright, but it’s vegan, hand-made, and high-quality, so it’s guaranteed to last you awhile.Learn more:Spareparts Joque Harness »
Regardless of whether you’re a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey or not, you’ve got to thank them for giving a 50% boost in popularity and sales to bondage sex toys. This kit is perfect for the couple that wants to bring some major drama and spice to the bedroom (or hotel room).
Two gripes: the blindfold is not very comfortable, so you may want to buy that piece elsewhere. Some people have also had issues with the straps not being short or long enough, so check the specs before buying.
Solo or Duo: Duo play!
Stimulation: This is all about blocking out one of the senses, relinquishing control, and waiting to see what sorts of stimulation your partner has in store for you. It may be naughty or nice.
Strength: Depends on what you like.
Special Features: This is basically just a set of restraints and blindfold. The special features are up to you.
Price: Many customers deem the price on this one a “great value”.Learn more:Fifty Shades of Grey Hard Limits Bed Restraint Kit »
In Ask Men’s roundup of the best sex toys for men, they named the Hugo as a “brave” pick. You know what we think? If you want a prostate orgasm, why mess around? This remote-controlled toy offers a whole lot of variety for single or dual play, and users say it’s guaranteed to get you off.
There is one main issue men have with this. Some men have said this isn’t totally hands-free as the massager has a tendency to fall out. If you’re planning on buying this, be sure to review the specs so you’re aware of how big and long it is (if you have an idea of what sort of sizes work for you already).
Solo or Duo: Both! And since it’s remote-controlled, it would definitely be good if you want to get someone else involved.
Stimulation: This goes straight to the prostate.
Strength: There’s a whole lot of variety in terms of settings and speeds, so strength is a matter of preference here.
Special Features: The remote control is especially helpful when it comes to a sex toy that can sometimes be difficult to maneuver if you don’t have a long enough reach to do it yourself.
Price: Lelo’s one of the most well-known sex toy manufacturers out there and there’s a reason for it. That being said, they’re also one of the most expensive too. The price tag on this one’s no laughing matter.Learn more:Lelo HUGO™ »
Huffington Post called the Icicles Daisy Plug one of the “sex toys you shouldn’t live without”, and it’s true. It doesn’t matter who you are—male, female, gay, straight, backdoor beginner or pro—if you want to give your backside a chance at some of the action, reviewers are thrilled by the experience of using this butt plug.
So far as I can tell, there are no complaints aside from the Huff Post not liking the name of it.
Solo or Duo: This will only fit inside one of you at a time, but there’s nothing that says your partner can’t help you use this.
Stimulation: Butt plugs are strictly meant for the P-spot!
Strength: People who have used this love how this feels. Strength all depends, however, on how comfortably the size of it fits inside of you and stimulates your prostate.
Special Features: Ergonomic design.
Price: There really aren’t any bells or whistles to this toy, so it makes sense that the price would be low.Learn more:Icicles Daisy Plug »
Whether you’ve got roommates, live with your parents, or worry about your partner hearing your private moments of pleasure, this discreet sex toy ensures you can take a moment for yourself without getting caught.
Some customers say the vibrations aren’t powerful enough—which is a common complaint when it comes to vibrators since everyone is different. If you need a stronger vibrator, take a look at these vibrators instead.
Solo or Duo: Lelo actually calls this one of their favorite beginner sex toys for couples. If you’re going to get something so discreet though, we figure you might as well keep it all to yourself.
Stimulation: Wherever you want it, though you’ll probably use this for direct clit stimulation.
Strength: There are five different settings, so play around with these to find one that works best for you.
Special Features: This one charges via USB, so you don’t have to worry about burning out batteries too quickly.
Price: Lelo’s products are expensive, but this one isn’t too badly priced in exchange for what you get (i.e. discreet pleasure).Learn more:Lelo MIA™ 2 »
Okay, guys, I haven’t forgotten about you. If you’re not into stimulating your prostate and want something you can use for your alone time, this pocket pussy is for you. While it’s not the most discreet of toys, it’s definitely a rave-worthy one based on previous customer reviews.
We honestly weren't able to find any (except maybe that your girlfriend or wife will be jealous).
Solo or Duo: I guess this could be used during duo play, though I’m guessing most likely not.
Stimulation: According to fans of this pocket pussy, the texture and pressure inside feels like the real thing.
Strength: No one’s complained about the tightness or lack thereof, so I guess the rest will be up to you.
Special Features: The outer covering is supposed to be anti-slip, so you shouldn’t have issues with losing your grip on the toy.
Price: It’s a little more expensive than you’d expect for a non-mechanical toy, but you’re probably paying for the high quality construction (and experience).Learn more:Utimi Masturbator Realistic Vagina 3D Pocket Pussy Mold for Male Masturbation »
While there are some flashier cock rings that come with built-in vibrators or are made out of something less pliable, they’re not as fun or reliable as these. And because there are three different rings in the set, you don’t have to worry about potentially purchasing something that’ll fit too tightly or loosely.
The only drawback may be in the sizing of the rings. If you or your partner is too small or too large in the package department, these might not work for you (though I haven’t seen any complaints to attest to that).
Solo or Duo: This is for dual play for sure!
Stimulation: There are two ways you can use these cock rings: use one at a time for a harder erection (and orgasm) or use all three at once to give your partner extra friction.
Strength: These might not do much physically for the non-wearer, but for the wearer… wowza!
Special Features: Three different ring sizes to play around with.
Price: You get three toys for a very affordable price.Learn more:Lyps Eclipse - 3 Cock Ring Set »
Cosmo UK included this on their list of best sex toys for couples, and it was a good call. This feathery-soft tickler gives couples an opportunity to tease, tantalize, and torture their partners, making foreplay last a long, long time.
Unless you’re allergic to feathers, you shouldn’t have any issues with this.
Solo or Duo: Definitely for couples.
Stimulation: While you can use this as a light whip, we’d suggest you instead put this to use once you’ve got your partner restrained and blindfolded.
Strength: It’s a very light touch, but the power you’ll have over your partner’s build-up is amazing.
Special Features: None really. It’s just a tickler.
Price: Very reasonable, though not the cheapest one on this list.Learn more:Bondage Boutique Precision Feather Tickler »
In all the research we did on the best sex toys, we found there to be one universal truth: the dildo is awesome for everyone—and this one in particular. Prefer a smooth ride? What about a few bumps and ridges along the way? How about hot and cold play? Yep, this dildo does it all and it’s great for reaching both the P-spot and the G-spot.
Solo or Duo: Either!
Stimulation: Pick your poison. Internal. External. Hot. Cold. Man. Woman. The only thing this doesn’t do is vibrate.
Strength: Depends on how well you know how to wield one of these.
Special Features: Dual ends for different experiences. And it can be heated up or frozen.
Price: For something that’s hard to break and guaranteed to give you a lot of pleasure? This is a steal!Learn more:Crystal Glass Pleasure Wand Dildo »
If you’re surprised to see a double-ended dildo as the number one pick on this list, don’t be. Dildos are a sex toy loved by most people—and this flexible, versatile, and waterproof one takes into consideration the fact that you might want to share the pleasures of your dildo with someone else.
Previous customers have said the toy has a sticky film when it first arrives, so be sure to wash it thoroughly before using.
Solo or Duo: The main reason this dildo ranks higher than the Crystal Glass Pleasure Wand is because it’s not a selfish toy. I mean, it could be if that’s what you want… but it’s meant for two.
Stimulation: This will depend on how you use it. There’s a smooth end and a ribbed end, and it’s also a fairly good length so you can either share the penetration or take advantage of deeper penetration for yourself.
Strength: That’s up to you (and your partner).
Special Features: Dual ends for different experiences. And dual ends for two times the pleasure—for you or you and your partner.
Price: Like other non-mechanical toys, this one’s cheap.Learn more:Doc Johnson Crystal Jellies 12 Inch Realistic Double Dildo »
