Staff Picks Fall 2013

With so many toys to choose from, our staff can be a choosy bunch. And since we're always being asked, "What toy do you like best?", we thought it only fair to give you the goods. We come from all walks of life, and represent a variety of ages and interests... while we may not all like the same toys, we're all passionate about sex toys in general! (To learn more about us, see our Staff Bios page).

My Pick: Sqweel 2

The Sqweel 2 doesn't actually vibrate, but the sensation delivered by the 10 rotating "tongues" feels just as good. I fell for the Sqweel 2 in "Flicker Mode", which feels a lot like oral sex, as the tongues alternate back and forth to brush the clitoris (or a nipple, or any other part you can imagine). Even better with lots of lube!


Anne — Director of Marketing, NYC

"My life's passion has been talking and writing about sex."

My Pick: Rabbit Habit

I have always loved describing this dual-action toy as the Marilyn Monroe of vibrators: sexy, classic, and a true original.


Artemis — Store Manager, Brooklyn

"I ordered my very first vibrator from Babeland.com years ago..."

My Pick: Club Vibe 2.Oh

I'm a fan of remote-control toys, and this one has a super slim design that makes it really comfortable to wear out and about. In manual mode, my partner and I use it as a fun way to sneakily play in public. In music mode I blast my favorite playlist and get off to the beat of the music-activated vibrations. It’s also voice-responsive, so I can hand it off to someone else who can get me off with the sound of their voice just by talking into the microphone.

My Pick: Jimmyjane Form 2

The Jimmyjane Form 2 vibrator, with the unique two-pronged design, changed my orgasms forever by helping me discover the pleasure potential of the hidden parts of my clit. Three years and countless toys later, it is still my favorite go-to vibrator.


Lauren — Receiver, SoHo

"Slingin' dildos since April 2008!"

My Pick: Magic Wand

The Magic Wand is like a best friend to me: always there when I need it and always knows how to cheer me up! It’s the closest to a "sure thing" that I would recommend. It is without a doubt our most powerful vibe (its settings are "high" and "higher"), so pair it with a Wand Controller to start off at a low rumble and work your way up to an earth-shattering orgasm.


Lucas — Sex Educator / Sales Associate, NYC

"Actor. Writer. Homosexual. Activist. Imp. I wear many hats..."

My Pick: Under the Bed Restraints

The Magic Wand is like a best friend to me: always there when I need it and always knows how to cheer me up! It’s the closest to a "sure thing" that I would recommend. It is without a doubt our most powerful vibe (its settings are "high" and "higher"), so pair it with a Wand Controller to start off at a low rumble and work your way up to an earth- shattering orgasm.

My Pick: Kandi Kisses

I'm giving this super cute vibe disguised as a lipstick to my BFF. Plus she'll get a huge kick out of knowing it was designed by Kandi Burruss, the star of "Real Housewives of Atlanta."


Tori — Sex Educator / Sales Associate, NYC

"I am a badass vegetarian feminist New Yorker with a background in theatre and puppies."

My Pick: Minna Ola

This super-smart toy makes a sexy, smart gift. Squeeze the body of the Minna firmly, gently, or using a repetitive motion, and the vibator will follow whatever pattern you set with corresponding vibrations.


AJ — Store Manager, Seattle

"A.J. is a Queens, NYC native living in Seattle."

My Pick: Babeland Mustang Dildo

How do you take the most versatile dildo on the market and make it even better? By giving it an awesome color and adding a suction base. The Babeland Anniversary Mustang, which has a length and girth enjoyed my most people, now gets an A+ from me!


Liz — Sex Educator / Sales Associate, NYC

"I've been crushing on Babeland since I moved to NYC in 2008."

My Pick: Gigi

This light weight toy's vibration starts super soft and gets incredibly strong. The silky silicone feels great and the shape is ideal for internal or external play. The perfect vibe to use alone or with a partner.

My Pick: Luna Beads

I love the Lelo Luna Beads because the different weights really allow me to customize my kegel muscle ""workout." The rumbling sensation of the weights when I go about my day with them is my own fun little secret. Finally, exercise I enjoy.

My Pick: Sliquid Sassy

When it comes to a versatile lube that lasts and works for all my sexy needs, Sliquid Sassy is the one. It has no taste, so I can keep my attention on how much fun I'm having.
