Sex toys no longer need to be shrouded in secrecy. These pleasure-inducers are more effective and posher than ever—some are even tricked out in 24-karat gold and platinum.
FOR TRAVELLING: CRAVE DUET ($164)
It’s quiet enough to use while waiting in line at customs (should you be that acrobatic), charges in a USB port and comes with its own leather sleeping bag.
The metal base means that your hands won’t feel the vibration—only the bit of your body in contact with the silicone arms will.
FOR PARTNER INVOLVEMENT: WE-VIBE 3 ($139)
If you feel like inviting a friend to the party, this device was designed to be worn internally during intercourse. One end taps the G spot, while the other end hits the clitoris. The We-Vibe 3 boasts six vibration modes and is completely waterproof for shower play. A full charge will net you two hours of what will hopefully be a very buzz-worthy performance.
FOR LUXE DISCRETION: JIMMYJANE LITTLE PLATINUM ($539)
Of course you need a vibrator that looks like a pen but happens to be platinum-coated. The slim bullet is silent (unlike you, while using it) and waterproof (and submersible) and has a long-lasting battery—saving you from fumbling for batteries with slippery fingers.
FOR REMOTE ENTERTAINMENT: LELO HULA BEADS ($195.90)
Though these cushy spheres are effective for external use, the brand recommends wearing them (discreetly) inside, so the top bead rotates against your G spot, while the lower bead delivers robust vibrations to your outer labia. All of that is achieved via an adjustable wireless remote. Who will you give that to?
FOR ORAL-SEX ENTHUSIASTS: LELO ORA 2 ($195.90)
Billed as “the world’s most intelligent oral-sex simulator,” the Lelo Ora 2 looks like a gorgeous bottle of eau de parfum, but it will rock your bathing-suit bits. Volley between “fast flicks” and “long swirls” and 10 different stimulation patterns.
FOR MULTI-USE ACTIVITIES: BSWISH BCURIOUS ($80)
This curvy fellow is backlit (mood lighting, check) and boasts seven functions (variety, check). Use the broad side for your labia and the pinpoint for your clitoris (yes, yes, yes, and check). Oh, and it’s also firm enough to grind against.
FOR FULL-BODY FUN: JIMMYJANE FORM 2 LUXURY EDITION ($207)
Moulded in a classic rabbit shape (yes, it’s now a category of vibrators), the Form 2 has vibrating flexible bunny ears that you can use independently or squeeze together to multiply sensation to infinity and beyond. It’s designed for total body contact, so get creative. Rest your new best friend on its 24-karatgold-tipped charger once you’ve taken care of business. For details, see Shopping Guide.
