We’ve come a long way since the days of mechanicalized vibrators that require two people to operate them. Now you can find them disguised as various everyday objects, they’re sold in local drug stores and it’s even reported that 1 in every 2 women owns one. With our constant toy improvement, whether it be design or material, it’s hard to keep up on what you should and shouldn’t be using.
Check out some of these new and tried and true sex toys for women that are totally worth trying and then jump over to Adam & Eve and refill your bedside drawer!
We’ve all had a dildo at some point in our lives, whether it was one of those oversized ones that are given as jokes or a much more realistic one that we actually used. However, I may be speaking for myself, but I just don’t find them as enjoyable as vibrators. I like the fact that I don’t have to do any of the work with a vibrator, but my whole world changed when I tried a glass dildo. These beauties are typically hand blown and look as much like art as they are pleasureable. They are different from your standard dildo though because the glass causes it to glide easily and for every ridge to be felt. They also retain heat and cold, can be washed in the dishwasher and are non-porous, meaning you need less lube to get the job done.
Ben Wa Balls.
These balls have recently made a big splash in the sex toy world thanks to Fifty Shades of Grey. In fact, it’s been reported that they’ve seen a 400% sales increase over the past year. But these toys are anything but new. They were created in Asia in the 1600s and were originally designed for men’s pleasure. They’ve since taken on more of a women’s focus and can offer you a lot of benefits. The use of Ben Wa Balls is predominately for training your PC muscles. By using the balls throughout the day, you’re forcing yourself to flex your PC muscles which in turn can tighten you up (especially after having a baby), help with incontinence issues and give you more control over your vaginal walls. You can also incorporate them in your foreplay routine or while you’re having sex.
Sex toy innovation would be nothing without all of the research backed behind it. Luxury toys started taking over the toy market a few years ago and for good reason: these toys are made to last, are rechargeable and are made to really get the job done. Companies like We Vibe have come up with some really great ergonomically designed toys that truly hit every spot. You can typically find these toys in the glass cases at novelty stores and they pack a punch in the price department. But once you get past the sticker shock, you’ll realize that they are totally worth it in the long run because you won’t have to replace it shortly after buying it and you don’t need batteries.
These toys are great for the constant traveller or someone looking to be a little more private with their fun. You can find vibrators disguised as lipstick, compacts, rubber duckies, and even Christmas ornaments. These toys will allow you to travel without TSA embarrassment or suspicion. You can also keep them displayed throughout your house without anyone being any the wiser. However, these toys tend to pack a little less of a punch because they are much smaller, but if you’re just looking for a clitoral stimulator you’re good to go.
Everyone needs to own lube. It makes everything better for everyone, but I really recommend it for women because it can help makes things easier and helps you get in the mood if you’re not getting there fast enough. Look for warming lubes if you want to turn up the friction between you and your toys or partner. However, make sure you avoid oil-based and silicone-based lubes because they are not compatible with condoms, with vaginas or with toys. Water-based is the way to go.
Toys are always improving, but there are few things you should look out for when purchasing any toy. Avoid materials that are not safe for your body by sticking with glass, medical grade metal or silicone, hard plastic, and elastomer products. Avoid anything that contains phthalates, a controversial material that is known to leak through sex toys. You also want to be on the look out for harsh seams that could potentially hurt you and for toys that are breaking down.
