How to Choose the Best Sex Toy

Check the Details

First off, it needs to fit in your budget (obviously). Some sex toys can cost you $20, and some can cost you $200. It’s up to you how much you want to spend, but figuring out a budget early will help you narrow down what toys you can shop around for.

Once you’ve found a sex toy within your budget that you like, you need to check the product deets. 

Find out exactly how big the toy is and if it’s going to be a good fit for you (not all vaginas are made the same, so make sure you pick a toy that will be kind to yours!). Do this by checking out the circumference of the toy. For example, a good rule of thumb for picking out a dildo is to find the widest measurement of it and decide whether it’s going to be a comfortable fit for you.

Make sure you also check to see whether the toy is flexible (or solid), waterproof and easy to clean. If you’re planning on using the toy for some bathroom escapades, or looking for a toy that’s easy to keep clean (hint, waterproof toys are easier), then make sure your chosen toy ticks these boxes.

Last but not least: the toy’s power supply. If a toy is battery powered or relies on a wall charge will make a big difference in the long term with how much you’ll have to spend on batteries (and how much you use it, of course!).

Watch Some of the Toy’s Product Videos and Read the Reviews

Most toys will have videos on their product page that demonstrate how they work.

Not only will you be able to get a sense of the size of the toy, but you’ll be able to see the toy in action. Watching a product video can also give you an idea about how loud the toy will be.

On the same page, you should be able to see some reviews of the product from verified purchasers. Check the reviews out; they’re a quick and easy way to see how good a product is. Obviously, the more stars, the better the public thinks the product is in the bedroom.

But reviews are also a great way to find out about what people really think of the product’s functionality. If a product is too loud, takes too long to charge, or doesn’t do what its marketing says it does, chances are, a reviewer will call the company out. So it’s worthwhile reading the product reviews before you invest in a toy.

Sex Toys… Are They Worth the Money?

Hell yeah!

Let’s get scientific. Sex toys are the perfect way for women to get equality in the bedroom. A survey published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour found more than 50,000 adults aged between 18 and 65 believed there is still an orgasm gap in the bedroom.

The study found 95 percent of heterosexual men will orgasm every time they have sex, but only 66 percent of heterosexual women will get the gold. On the flipside, 86 percent of lesbians and 66 percent of bisexual women will reach the O when they’re having sex. So if you’re one of the (many) women who aren’t reaching the finish line, sex toys are an amazing way find the pleasure you deserve.

After all, science has proven that masturbating can make you a healthier woman. Getting a better night’s sleep, feeling happier and kicking your stress to the curb are all benefits that come from achieving your own orgasm. Oh, not to mention fewer menstrual pains… and it feels damn good! Enough chat, let’s find your orgasm! Here are 5 of the best sex toys for women on the market right now.

Experience a Whole New Orgasm Sensation

This toy is designed for one thing in mind – your clitoris.

Marketed as ‘the little black dress’ of sex toys, the toy’s design means your clit sits in a specially designed stimulation space. So you can imagine what will happen to your body when you turn the toy on.

You can charge it with a USB Cable (and it lasts three hours!) and the toy is easy to handle, too. It’s built with a slight curve to the handle, so it’s comfortable to hold.

Pros

  • Unlike other toys, The Womanizer focuses solely on clitoral stimulation
  • It’s suuuuuper quiet at only 42 decibels
  • The revolutionary Pleasure Air technology gives you tons of pleasurable vibes, but won't desensitise your clit, yay!

The Powerhouse Of a Classic

Okay, we know this one will give you a flashback from a Sex in the City episode where Samantha is looking for dildos in a home massager department. But the Magic Wand is one of the most powerful sex toys on the market.

Sure, it looks like a massager (and can be used as one, if that’s your thing), but its 4 different power intensities means it can also be used for a more intimate massage. The toy is super versatile and it isn’t built for just one part of your body. Whether you want to focus on your clit, vagina or your butt—this toy covers all bases.

Oh, and the company has ditched the corded version, too. You can just plug the wand into charge, and you’ll get three hours of cordless fun from a single charge.

Pros

  • Versatility! You can use the wand on any part of your body
  • The charge lasts for 3 whole hours. You’ll get tired before it does (and you’ll save a lot of money on buying batteries)

Cons

  • It’s not waterproof or splash proof, so no shower fun with this one.
  • This can also mean cleaning the toy is a bit harder than other waterproof toys on the market. ​

Best Sex Toys for Women The Serpent Glass Dildo

For Cervical Orgasms!

Glass dildos? Yes, they’re a thing. And they’re amazing. Their unique shape opens up your masturbating world to the possibility of the elusive g-spot and cervical orgasms.

The dildo is easy to use (no cords or batteries). All you have to do is mount the candy-colored carnival, hang on, and slide up and down. Its unique S-shape bend is the key to finding your G-Spot, and because the toy is made from glass, you won’t feel any friction.

And if you’re a fan of temperature play, you’ll be happy to know that the Serpent is too. Putting the dildo into your fridge or freezer for a little bit can open up a whole other side to its pleasure possibilities. Since they’re hand-blown, each dildo is unique, and their glass material means they’ll last a lifetime. No imperfections or batteries with this one. Think of it as nature’s dildo.

Pros

  • No batteries or cords in sight!
  • Super easy to keep clean and it’s so versatile. In the freezer or in the bath, you can take this dildo anywhere

Cons

  • By nature, glass is a firm material, so it’s not going to be for everyone
  • Glass is pretty heavy, so you may find it’s more intensive to use than some other toys
  • It can easily break when it falls on the floor. You need to be careful with that!

Best Sex Toys for Women Lelo Tiani 3

To Enjoy With a Partner

If you’re looking for a sex toy you can share with your partner, the Lelo Tiani covers all bases. Literally.

The couples’ massager vibrates internally and externally (at the same time), which is the perfect answer if you’re both looking to get a bit of fun from your toy together. It’s controlled by a remote, so you can have a lot of fun teasing and pleasuring each other, while you get the stimulation, too.

Here’s how it works. It’s designed to be inserted with the smaller arm in your vagina, and the larger outer arm should sit on your clit. It’s easier if you put the place your toy before your partner enters you, and you’ll probably find it easier to start off with missionary while you figure out how the toy works (and then go exploring!).

The Lelo Tiani has exclusive Sense Motion technology which picks up on a flick of the wrist to control the toy’s vibrations (no more searching for the right button). And it has 8 vibration settings (from a little tickle to a full-blown intense fest), and it’s fully waterproof. Meaning the shower and hot tub are all fair game.

Pros

  • It takes care of both of you, so you won’t have to feel like you’re missing out while your partner is having all the fun
  • It’s super silent, so it won’t interrupt you when things are getting hot and heavy

Cons

  • It can be tricky to get used to the toy and placing it correctly. If you don’t set it up correctly, you might find that the toy moves around in the middle of sex, which isn’t ideal
  • You might find this one a bit pricey

Best Sex Toys for Women Crave Vesper

The Vibrator That Doubles As a Cute Accessory

Because who doesn’t need a vibrator necklace. The Vesper is a vibrator that looks like a gorgeous necklace, but doubles as a cheeky vibrator. This is the ultimate toy if you’re up for having a bit of fun in both private and public spaces.

Don’t let the size of this toy fool you. It hands on a 26″ stainless steel chain, it’s splash proof, and it has 4 speeds.  A single charge will last you between 40 minutes to an hour and a half, and you can top it up using a USB cable.

It’s classy and super discreet too (like c’mon, it doesn’t even look like a sex toy!). Take your pick of colours from silver, rose gold or 24-karat gold, and each one is made from safe materials (nickel-free!).

Pros

  • Even though it’s small, it packs a punch. The Vesper can give the same strong vibes just as bigger sex toys
  • It is small enough that it can be added easily to oral play

Cons

  • The toy can overheat quickly if you use it for long stints at a time

Sex Toys Are the Best Toys

The best thing about sex toys (apart from the fun and the orgasms) is that there are toys made for every sexual lifestyle, fetish and fantasy.

If you’re just starting out with toys and you don’t want to get too kinky, you’ll still get a ton of pleasure out of a Magic Wand (which can also give you a massage if you’re hanging solo). But if you’re looking for something a bit more mischevious, a vibrator that doubles as a necklace in public might be more your thing.

Our advice? There is no right or wrong sex toy. Whatever toy you feel comfortable with and suits your sexual journey is the best sex toy for you.
