My Pick: Lovelife Share Vibrating Ring

After my partner said our last cock ring pinched, we decided to give the Lovelife Share Vibrating Ring a try. He loves how stretchy and comfortable the silicone is, I love that it's rechargeable (no tiny batteries!) and we both love how much it vibrates. Seriously, the Share has the most vibrating surface area I've ever seen on a cock ring.

My Pick: We-Vibe 4

I’ve tried the earlier versions of this toy but the We-Vibe 4 changed my life. I require A LOT of direct stimulation with pressure and even then it can take me forever to come. I was shocked at how easily I could get off with the We-Vibe 4. I didn't even use it during penetration. I slipped it in and gave my boifriend the remote. She turned it on, and OMG within 4 minutes I had an orgasm. I also used it while grinding on her leg. This toy gave me multiple orgasms folks! Only downside was that it didn’t fit my partner as well.

My Pick: Ora

The Ora definitely sent me on a whirl. The firm pressure of the rotating bump is amazing, even more so when I added the strong vibrations into the mix. I love the way it fits in my hand, and curves to my body.

My Pick: Liquid Assets Naked Pleasure Lube

Liquid Assets lube is a thin, slick lube made with awesome ingredients like green tea, tamarind, and pomegranate. It comes in a sleek tube that looks like a fancy tube of lotion; the perfect lube to discreetly sit on your bedside table. Pick up this lube and treat yourself to something good for your skin as well as for your sex play!

My Pick: Babeland Silver Bullet

The Silver Bullet is one of the most giftable vibrators I’ve encountered in twenty years of selling sex toys. I bring a stash with me when I travel because I give them to friends and family. The strong buzz and quality construction promise a good time for the lucky recipient. It’s a great first-timer vibe, and you can’t beat the price.

My Pick: Mason

The Mason is the perfect strap on sex dildo! You can pack him down into pants or tights and then whip him out for sex whenever and wherever. Since he is so long you don't lose too much length in the harness, but you can use that awesome length in so many positions.

My Pick: Hula Beads

When my BFF told me that her regular Rabbit vibrator was getting a little boring, I decided she was ready for an upgrade. Hula Beads were the perfect choice! They swirl just like a rabbit but with added internal vibration. Use the wireless vibrating remote externally for amazing dual action, or turn them off and use them just like Kegel balls for a PC muscle workout.

My Pick: Je Joue G Kii

I love the versatile G-Kii because you can use it as an external vibe, a G-spot vibe, or a dual stimulation vibe. The secret is in the joints, which bend to whatever shape you desire!

My Pick: Share

The Share dildo is my favorite gift to give friends! I love that both ends of the toy are curved, so I know everyone's having great g-spot fun no matter which side they're on.

My Pick: Gigi G Spot Gift Set

The Gigi Gift Set is my go-to gift for friends I think will enjoy a little G-spot adventure, and so far they have all loved it. Lelo’s elegant Gigi vibrator pairs well with Violet’s Blue’s great G-spot book and our signature lube. If you give this set just be prepared to not see your friend for a few days!

My Pick: Jimmyjane Form 4

The curvy neck of the Form 4 means my partner and I can place it between our bodies without too much pressure against my pelvis. I am also obsessed with the deep vibration of the Form 4 compared to smaller, buzzier toys. The thickness is just right for me internally and the soft silicone makes rocking it against my G-spot the best!

My Pick: Comet Wand Vibe

I am currently infatuated with the Comet Wand II because it’s a great toy for intense G-Spot stimulation AND it vibrates! The handle also makes it really easy for a partner to use on me. An all around great for finding your G-spot or experimenting with female ejaculation!
