Babeland Staff Picks - Summer

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! (See our Staff Bios page to learn more about us.)

My Pick: Kaya Rabbit

This toy is quite the catch, thanks largely to the direct, strong vibrations on the clit (often hard to find in a rabbit-style toy). Kaya’s amazing pulsation patterns deliver a symphony of vibrations to my most sensitive spots. Finally, I love the separate controls that let me choose between clitoral or vaginal vibrations, or both.

My Pick: Fifty Shades of Grey: Induldge Your Fantasies Kit

If you were inspired by some of the fun and games in Fifty Shades of Grey, then I'd recommend this kit, which contains many of the same items in Ana and Christain's bag of tricks. The Fifty Shades of Grey: Indulge Your Fantasies Kit will outfit you with everything you need to reenact the kinky good times these naughty lovers enjoy, and you'll save about $33 when you buy them together, so you don't have to be as rich as Christian to get it on!

My Pick: Happy Rabbit

I’m a rabbit-vibe fan from way back and the new Happy Rabbit gets a lot of things right: great silicone material, full vibration along the shaft, nice girth, and it’s rechargeable. Plus, I love purple. Tip: press down on the bunny ears during use to increase the intensity of the clit vibrations.

My Pick: Pop Plugs

The small plug is a great place to start—little and not intimidating—while the bigger sizes give you something to aspire to.

My Pick: Sheer Chemise Lingerie Set

I wanted to give my BFF (the one with the longstanding BF) something to re-ignite the flame. So she got a We-Vibe 3 couple’s vibe and this incredibly hot, amazingly affordable lingerie set. It comes in bridal white or naughty black, so depending on what flavor your BFF prefers, she won’t be disappointed by the way this set highlights her sexiest assets and most provocative mood.

My Pick: Je Joue Mio

I recommend the Mio vibrating couple’s ring to both beginners and experienced cock ring users. It has the perfect amount of give in the ring; a wonderful balance between stretchy and snug. The robust vibrations and fun pulsation patterns offer plenty of opportunities to experiment, plus it's rechargeable and totally waterproof.

My Pick: Smart Wand | Large

I am in love with the new Large Smart Wand by Lelo. It is fantastically powerful, on par with the Hitachi, but it is rechargeable, made of body-safe silicone, and can provide a wide range of vibration patterns. I also love that it comes in Plum which appeals to my femme sensibilities. One more plus: it has setting that responds to pressure: if you press more firmly to your body, it vibrates harder. If that's not magic, I don't know what is.

My Pick: Double Agent

The Double Agent is a quality, inexpensive representational dildo, but it also earns raves as an amazing pack and play toy. It is flexible yet firm enough for a good roll in the hay! The only thing you should know is that the Double Agent will create a sizeable bulge (and by sizeable I mean a trouser snake)!
