Let’s talk about why masturbation is so amazing. It lowers stress, can help you sleep, and feels downright amazing. Which is why we’re all about using masturbation to make your “you time” an out-of-this-world experience. We know, it can be difficult and even intimidating to find the perfect toy for solo play. Luckily, we’ve done the work for you, and rounded up some of the best sex toys for solo pleasure. All you need is a comfortable location, a few drops of lube, and your vibe of choice. You can thank us later.
You’ve heard the saying that diamonds are a woman’s best friend? Well, clearly that was decided before the Womanizer came along. The pleasure air technology is super unique and creates a sensation that leads to an orgasm experience like no other. The six levels of intensity make it perfect for a date night with yourself, as you’ll want to test out the various settings all night long.
The ArcWave is an incredible counterpart to the Womanizer—but for the penis. It uses the same pleasure air technology integrated into an ultra-soft silicone penis massaging sleeve, so get ready for your mind (and nether regions) to be blown away. It also starts and stops automatically based on skin contact, eliminating the need for thrusting to enjoy its power.
If you’re looking for a great external vibe, look no further than the Mimi. It comes in a variety of beautiful colors and is shaped just like the palm of your hand, allowing you to use its surface area to target specific spots in a wide range of ways. It also features a deep rumbling vibration with seven different patterns and five different speeds. Oh, and it’s USB rechargeable and waterproof! Take your solo play into the bath for an added layer of relaxation.
If you don’t yet own a Magic Wand, we encourage you to get on that ASAP. The Magic Wand has been an iconic vibe for generations. Dubbed the “Cadillac of Vibrators,” this massage wand is sure to exceed your wildest dreams. It features powerful penetrating vibrations and a variety of speeds and patterns, with an easy to clean silicone head. Try it out and see why the Magic Wand has been one of the best sex toys for generations.
If you’re looking for an internal vibe to explore your g-area, this one is sure to make the journey a pleasurable one. It’s made from really soft silicone to shift with your body and also has raised edges to stimulate you in all of the right places. Plus, the toy has great battery life… Because we all know that the worst thing ever is having a toy die on you in the middle of a masturbation sesh.
Tabu’s sexual wellness kit comes with everything you need for an intimate night in. Designed for (though not exclusive to) women going through menopause, the kit features a lightweight and discreet massager/vibrator with an organic, healing lubricant. The vibe comes with three speeds and an optional warming system to help stimulate blood flow, and the lubricant contains antioxidants designed to help protect your body against the free radicals that cause aging. This combination creates a nourishing masturbation experience that turns your solo night into a total act of self-care.
Dress yourself up to turn yourself on. Emily’s signature Vesper from Crave is as much a toy as it is jewelry, making it one of the more unique sexual accessories you can add to your repertoire. As a clitoral toy, it adds the perfect little buzz to get those erotic juices flowing. Admire your stylish self in the mirror and then get to playing.
Toys can seem intimidating, but don’t be afraid to give them a try! The best sex toys might take a few tries to get into the groove of playing. Part of the fun is experimenting with different ways to orgasm. Before you know it, you’ll have discovered a whole new way to play.
