My Pick: Club Vibe 2.OH

I'm giving the Club Vibe 2.OH to my partner so that he can tease me at dinner! The slender vibe fits really nicely against the body, and the vibration patterns are really fun. I especially love that he can dirty talk into the remote, and I can feel the toy vibrate to his voice.


Phoebe — Buyer - Oakland

"When I'm not at Babeland, where I've been working since 2007, I'm busy eating tasty granola with yogurt..."

My Pick: Be Mine Lingerie

Whether you give the Be Mine Lingerie Kit as a gift or buy it for yourself, you’ll leave no doubt as to your seductive intentions. The chemise with matching G-string and thigh stockings flatter all body types and act as a perfect invitation for a little frolic with the arousal balm and Toyfriend Pocket clit vibrator.

My Pick: Little Chroma Plum

My Valentine will be receiving the plum-colored Little Chroma. Sleek, sexy and silent, the Little Chroma's powerful vibration will make Valentines' hearts pitter-patter. AND, it's waterproof, for bubbly bath time fun!


Greta — E-Commerce Manager, Oakland

My Pick: Jopen Vanity VR 16

I fell into immediate lust with this vibe from the moment I turned it on, and two months later that heady feeling hasn’t begun to dissipate. Now I plan to introduce my partner to its many charms. The smooth silicone, perfect girth, and just-right rotation of the shaft have elicited many mind-blowing orgasms. Add the additional stimulation of the vibrating bunny ears, and it’s a guaranteed screamer (thankfully the toy itself is very quiet –even if I’m not).


Lucas — Sex Educator / Sales Associate, SoHo

"Actor. Writer. Homosexual. Activist. Imp. I wear many hats... and they all look fabulous on me."

My Pick: Tor 2

I've played with a lot of cock rings in my time, but never have I met anything like this guy. The Tor 2 is twice as strong as the original, completely submersible in water, and made out of very stretchy and comfortable silicone. It makes a wonderful gift for a couple, or a great hands-free vibrator for solo play!


Avital — Workshop, NYC

"I'm a recent film grad from liberal arts daycare, and I'm thrilled to be welcomed into the Babeland family!"

My Pick: Bondage in a Box

This Valentine’s Day, I’m going to be reunited with a long-distance sweetie, and I need to travel light. Bondage in a Box is a perfect on-the-go restraint set. The blindfold mask has ties that are long enough to wrap around his wrists as well, and the long satin restraints are sturdy and versatile: I can tie him to a bed, chair, or wherever else my vacation may take me!


Lauren — Receiver, SoHo

"Slingin' dildos since April 2008! I love being here because I get to work with some of the best people around."

My Pick: Heart Dildo

I’m giving my girlfriend the Glass Heart Dildo for Valentine’s Day because she warms my heart – just like you can do to this Pyrex dildo for some great temperature play! And while I’m away, the flat handle is great for her to hold onto while angling the curve to hit her G- spot.


Andrea — Sex Educator / Sales Associate, NYC

"I'm a Southerner happily living in New York City studying Gender Studies and Queer Theory. "

My Pick: Moka G

I'm giving the Moka G Vibe because it’s incredibly versatile and I want the person I'm buying this for to enjoy all of the options. The Moka G’s lovely curve will tease her G-spot, while the flat head can deliver either pinpoint or diffuse vibrations to the clit.


Taueret — Sex Educator / Sales Associate, NYC

"I am a kinky queer femme Pisces with a deep love for body liberation, fierce style, decadence, DIY mixology, and stainless steel sex toys."

My Pick: Boudoir in a Box

The number one item on my Valentine's wish list is the Boudoir in Box! I love that it comes packed with all the elements you need for a steamy Valentine’s night fit for hotties of all sizes; just add Champagne! To top it off, the body stocking is crotch-less which will take your night to a whole new level.

My Pick: Leather and Ice Whip

For the creative couple, there is a ton of fun ways to put this whip to good use: roll it or hit with it for sensation play, cool it or put the handle in warm water for temperature play, or just use it as a regular whip! The handle of this beautiful whip doubles as a glass dildo.


Laura R — Receiver, Brooklyn

"My favorite things include fancy coffee, cheap accessories, foul mouths, and riot grrl culture."

My Pick: Boss Lady

This Valentine’s day, I’m giving myself a hot pink Boss Lady, my sex toy spirit animal. It’s the perfect size and shape for hitting my G-spot, and the turbo boost button is pure genius!

Treat yourself to a Mona for Valentine ’s Day or give one as a gift to find your honey's sweet spot! This new and improved vibrator is rechargeable, waterproof, and comes in magenta, what’s not to love?! The large head is ideal for G-spot fun, and the curves also feel great against the clit.

My Pick: Babeland Beginner's Strap-On Kit

I’m giving my best lezbro/friend the Babeland Strap On Kit for Valentine’s Day so that she and her sweetie can both get their buzz on in bed. The vibe is strong enough for both partners to feel it through the harness and dildo!
