Pros: Pleasurably textured interior; translucent casing for a better view; open-ended design makes it easier to clean the toy between uses and to combine it with oral sex, handjobs, etc.; more compact and travel-friendly than regular-size Fleshlights; inexpensive
Cons: Porous material isn’t as durable/long-lasting as silicone
Best Vibrating Masturbator: Hot Octopuss Pulse Solo
This incredibly rumbly vibrator is designed to wrap around your shaft and stimulate your sensitive frenulum, whether you’re stroking it up and down or just holding it on your sweet spot. Unlike most penis toys, this one works well even when you’re not fully hard yet.
Pros: Unique oscillations can feel “rumblier” and deeper than standard vibrations; can be used with or without an erection; waterproof; easy to clean
Cons: Not as easily incorporated into partnered sex as some other strokers
Best Anal Beads: CalExotics Silicone Booty Beads
These anal beads hold their shape better than a standard set, so they’re easy to guide in even if you’ve never tried beads before. That “popping” sensation as each bead moves in and out of you can make orgasms surprisingly intense!

Cons: Doesn’t vibrate or do anything fancy; can’t be used with silicone-based lubes
Best Affordable Masturbation Toy: Tenga Egg
Is the Tenga Egg masturbator going to change your sex life? No. Will you use it to masturbate every single time? Absolutely not. But for less than seven dollars a egg, this super-stretchable elastomer sleeve can become one of many tools in your jerk box to switch things up when the old-fashion way starts growing stale.
Pros: Very affordable for a stroker; great variety of internal textures available; soft, squishy material; comes with its own lube
Cons: Disposable (meant to be thrown away after one to three uses)
The Best Vibrator: Magic Wand Rechargeable
If you watch porn, you’ve probably seen a Magic Wand in action at some point. It’s the OG ultra-powerful vibrator, and it got even better when its maker introduced a cordless model a few years back. It may not be most discreet massager in the world, but that’s honestly a big part of its charm: There’s nothing subtle about this toy or the orgasms it doles out.
Pros: Strong, rumbly vibrations; four vibration speeds and four patterns; can be used while charging
Cons: Gets buzzier on higher speeds; gets loud on higher speeds; not waterproof
The Best Bullet Vibrator: We-Vibe Tango X
If good things come in small packages, this vibe is a prime example. Its tiny size means its big, rumbly vibrations come as a surprise the first time you flip it on. It’s waterproof, so it’s an ideal companion for bathtub masturbation or shower sex.
Pros: Strong and rumbly vibrations; eight different intensity levels; fits easily between bodies; waterproof; quiet; silicone grip for comfort and ease of use; travel lock function
Cons: May rattle against genital piercings if you have them
The Best Oral Sex Simulator: Womanizer Premium
Rather than vibrations, the Womanizer uses rhythmic pulses of air to create a clit sensation that’s somewhere between sucking and tapping. It sort of has to be experienced to be understood. This model has an “autopilot” mode that varies the sensation, which makes it feel even (more) like oral from a real live human (especially when generously lubed).
Pros: Powerful and unique pressure-wave sensations; quiet; waterproof; 14 intensity levels; long battery life; optional “autopilot mode” automatically changes the toy’s intensity level over time so you don’t have to; comes with two differently sized stimulation heads to choose from
Cons: May not fit especially small or large clits
The Best G-Spot Vibrator: Lelo Mona 2
This silicone vibrator is quite powerful, but what really distinguishes it is the shape, which is perfect for rubbing against the G-spot with or without vibrations.
Pros: Fantastic shape for G-spot stimulation; can also be used clitorally; strong and rumbly vibrations; six vibration settings; waterproof; quiet; travel lock function
Cons: Not anal-safe; can’t be used with silicone-based lubes
The Best Dual-Stimulation Vibrator: We-Vibe Nova 2
Dual-stimulation vibrators hit inside and outside at the same time—you might remember the classic Rabbit vibrator from Sex and the City. But these things are notoriously difficult to pick out, because the distance between the clit and the vaginal opening varies so much from person to person. But this one is practically universal: it uses a super-flexible arm to reach the clit as the user thrusts the toy in and out without losing contact.
Pros: Strong and rumbly vibrations; stimulates G-spot and clitoris simultaneously; flexible clitoral arm helps maintain contact with your clit when thrusting the toy; both components can be controlled separately; Bluetooth-controllable (including long-distance) via the We-Vibe app; quiet; waterproof; travel lock function
Cons: Not especially versatile (it’s hard to use either arm of the toy on its own)

Cons: May be uncomfortably firm for some users; somewhat heavy (1.51 lbs)
The Best Hands-Free Vibrator: We-Vibe Sync
Many companies have done a version of We-Vibe’s signature C-shaped vibrator, but the original is still the best. Meant to be “worn” during intercourse, the We-Vibe stimulates both partners at once, for stronger (and possibly simultaneous) orgasms. This model has two hinges at its center, so you can adjust it to achieve the right fit.
Pros: Bluetooth-controllable; powerful vibrations; adjustable fit; stimulates clitoris and G-spot simultaneously; 10 different intensity levels; waterproof; quiet
Cons: Can’t easily use either arm of the toy on its own; hinges may snap if handled too aggressively
The Best Low-Profile Toy: We-Vibe Melt
It’s no secret that standard P-in-V sex doesn’t always give the clit the stimulation it needs, and a slim toy can be just the thing to get both parties over the line. This petite toy is one of those “sucking” toys that uses rhythmic pulses of air to create clitoral sensations that mimic great oral sex—and unlike many other toys with this toe-curling technology, the We-Vibe Melt is slim enough to slip between bodies easily.
Pros: Flexible nozzle for increased comfort; low-profile shape allows it to fit well between bodies during sex; 12 intensity levels; waterproof; quiet
Cons: May not fit all clit sizes
The Best Vibrating Cock Ring: Tenga SVR
It’s a bit like strapping a V-8 to your shaft: This deep, satisfying motor enhances sex for both parties when the vibrating silicone hits skin. Also handy? You could also slip your fingers through the loop and penetrate a partner while the vibrator stimulates the outside.

Pros: Very powerful vibrations; can be used flaccid or erect; nine speeds and five vibration modes; vibrating underside for a partner to grind against; underside’s intensity can be controlled independently with the included remote; fits a wide range of penis sizes; quiet; waterproof
Cons: Short battery life

The power dynamics, the gender play, the potential for intense prostate orgasms? Pegging is fun. And if you’re curious, this kit will get you started: it comes with a harness, two differently-sized toys (including a starter-sized one for total newbies), and a small vibrator you can slip into the harness to make sure you both enjoy yourselves. Add lots and lots of water-based lube and you’re good to go!

The Best Prostate Massager: Lelo Hugo
The best massager on the market, bar none. It’s expensive, but if you plan on using it more than a few times, then there’s no reason not to splurge. The incredible precision of the vibrations separates Hugo from the pack. To control the speed and intensity, you simply tilt the circular remote. So if you tilt down and to the right, the vibrations will be stronger on the back right side.
Pros: Great shape for prostate stimulation; eight adjustable settings of powerfully rumbly vibration; two motors to stimulate both prostate and perineum at once; silky-smooth silicone; can be used with or without the included remote; waterproof
Cons: May be too large for some users; remote uses disposable batteries
The Best Inexpensive Prostate Massager: Aneros Helix Trident
Prostate massagers are pricey, which makes a certain amount of sense. (You don’t want to stick just anything up there.) The Helix Trident is on the cheaper side, as it goes. Unlike most other toys on the list, this one doesn’t vibrate, but it still works great, particularly if you’re completely new to anal play and prostate stimulation—the Helix is a great starter toy. If you determine you love the sensation of something inside you, then you can upgrade to a more expensive vibrating model.
Pros: Hands-free prostate stimulation; good size for beginners; also stimulates perineum; can be used with any kind of lube
Cons: No vibration; head may be too blunt for some beginners to insert comfortably
The Best Vibrating Prostate Massager: Lelo Loki Wave
If you’ve ever enjoyed the “scooping” or “come hither” motion of a partner’s fingers (or your own) on your prostate, you’d probably love this toy. In addition to vibrating, it “waves” up and down in a massaging motion, creating ultra-intense orgasms.

The Best Experts-Only Prostate Massager: Fun Factory Duke
The Duke isn’t messing around—it should only be used by anal pros. It goes much further inside your rectum than any other massager on this list: it has three separate components that stimulate various highly-sensitive erogenous zones. The first part extends far past your prostate, hitting the deep inner walls of your rectum. The second section directly nuzzles against your prostate, and the third and final section hugs your perineum to help keep the toy in place. Given how much area it covers, the Duke leads to incredibly powerful orgasms.
Pros: Stimulates both the prostate and the perineum; flexible for comfort; removable bullet vibrator can be used elsewhere; waterproof
Cons: Some users might find it too large or too curved for comfort; only two steady vibration speeds (and three patterns); may slip out during use

Cons: Porous material has a shorter lifespan than silicone; often noisy during use; may not fit all penis sizes

The Best Anal Beads: Booty Bling Wearable Silicone Beads
Anal beads feel great on the way in and the way out. When inserted, this toy can hit the prostate while you mess around—either partnered or solo. It’ll just hang out and stay put. But the most fun happens upon removal. If you remove the plug slowly, and allow each bead to “pop,” it can massively intensify your climax.

The Best Advanced Anal Beads: nJoy Fun Wand
For an advanced user of anal beads, the nJoy Fun Wand is the upgrade you need.

It isn’t exactly for beginners, but if this sounds about right, just take it slow and figure out what feels good. (Bonus: Stainless steel is extra easy to clean.)
Pros: Double-ended design for more sensation options; curved to hit the G-spot or prostate; great for temperature play; will last basically forever; comes in a gift-ready wooden storage box

Since it’s a couple’s toy, you can use it together once you reunite (or, you know, meet up for the first time).
