2020 was a horny year. Sex toy sales skyrocketed more than anything -- famously, the “womanizer” line by WOW Tech increased by 253% in Canada and by 152% in the US.
Sex toys are in the spotlight lately, but they aren’t a new phenomenon. In fact, dildos reportedly date back 30,000 years. One prehistoric dildo was a stone object measuring 20 cm long and 3 cm wide. Thankfully, instead of a slab of cold stone we now have technology that can mimic body temperature or the sensation of suction.
These unique advancements in sex toys are a reminder of just how creative people can be, with so much to choose from for penises and vaginas. Here is our list of toys that will deliver next-level pleasure and restore your faith in humanity.
For light packing
Buzz Vibe by Babeland ($12.50)
This one is so discreet you can pop it in your bag without worrying about it rolling out in front of the family. Don’t be fooled by its size; the Buzz Vibe packs a punch!
For design fanatics
Vibe by Maude ($45)
Maude’s “Vibe” has three settings and covers you for quality sessions with a 2.5 hour run time. With its chic design, you might even be tempted to leave it on your coffee table.
For a vulva safari
Bender by UnboundedBabes ($69)
True to its name, this toy bends -- which makes it perfect for g-spot exploration, clitoral attention and any other nooks and crannies you want to reach. You can check out how it works here in its excellent promotional video.
For mind-blowing clitoral stimulation
Aer by Dame Wellness ($95)
Someone described it as feeling like an orgasm given “by a cloud.” The Aer creates a soft suction around your clitoris, while pressure wave technology creates rhythmic pulses of air that are guaranteed to take you all the way. There’s a problem though, this dreamy product is so in-demand you have to pre-order it. Get going!
For cunnilingus on-demand
The Frenchman by Smilemakers ($55)
The Frenchman lives up to its name. The toy is a super-malleable, tongue-shaped clitoral vibrator, designed to bend and flex in the way a Frenchman’s tongue would. Make it a full-body experience and use it to tease your erogenous zones for a sensual and pleasurable massage.
For anal lovers
Glass Butt Plug by Lovehoney ($24.99)
A glass butt plug means you can heat it up or cool it down depending on what temperature you’re after. Glass can also be used with any lubricant you like. Woohoo!
For portable pleasure for penises
Misty Egg by Tenga ($6.91)
Cheap thrills! The Misty is super-stretchable, making it suitable for any penis regardless of your size. Just don’t put it in your anus as one confused reviewer did.
For realistic and discreet solo sessions
Fleshlight flight Male Masturbator by Lovehoney ($64.99)
The Fleshlight is the number one best-selling toy for men. Join the hype: lined with dozens of stimulating bumps, the sleeve offers realistic and intense pleasure sensations. It’s also so discreet you could quite literally pass it off as a flashlight.
For warm tingly sensations
Men’s Heat Vibration by Satisfyer ($40.99)
Get your vibrator to do all the work for you. Deep vibrations stimulate and arouse the penis tip. Unlike most toys, this vibrator creates warming heat sensations so you’ll feel like it’s the real deal. It’s got our seal of approval.
For an updated classic
Le Wand ($170)
Fun fact: the Wand has been a popular sex toy among women since the 70s, when it was discovered it could be discretely passed off as a sports massager. You can only imagine how many people suddenly developed back pain.
Le Wand has 10 rumbling variations speeds and 20 different vibration patterns. That should keep you entertained for a while.
For a couples’ delight
Tilt by Lora DiCarlo ($140)
The Tilt is a little pricey, but that’s because it delivers a lot. Designed to please all anatomies (not just vaginas), it has two independently controlled motors bringing rumbling sensations to your G-spot and clitoris, or your P-spot and perineum. On top of that, the toy has state-of-the-art warming technology that mimics the feel of your partner. Wow, that’s...a lot.
