Babeland Staff Picks — November


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.)


Every month, six different Babeland staff members will tell you about their favorite toys. Be sure to check back every month to find out which toys we can't live without.
 

Lauren — Sex Educator/Receiver, SoHo

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

My Pick: Ripple Plug

The Ripple Plug was my first anal toy, and it's still my favorite! The base is great for solo manual play but also allows me to strap it on — its wavy shape is great for penetration, as long as you take it slow. I also find it to be very useful in introducing partners to anal play because of its graduated size. They always want more afterwards!

My Pick: Jimmyjane Form 2

The Jimmyjane Form 2 changed my mind about using and loving unique vibration patterns externally. I usually prefer a constant and intense buzz, but there is this one pattern on the Form 2 — I call it the rubber band pattern, because it sounds like the stretch and release of a rubber band — that I love alternating with a constant buzz. Also, the two points of the Form 2 allow me to stimulate the outer side of the labia, under which are the legs of the clit, which I love!

Apaulo — Warehouse Lead, Oakland

"I box up your wildest fantasies and send you orgasms in the mail. I want to spread the love of safe and functional sex to all... " More »

My Pick: Mr. Bendy

I'm a trans guy, and I'm always looking for toys to help me out when it comes to spontaneous sex. I strapped Mr. Bendy down in my harness and easily bent it down, because of the wire inside, to look like a well-endowed bulge one night... and I was able to pound away in a gay bar bathroom! It really helps to have my hands free in tight spaces, like who-knows-if-they-ever-clean-it bathroom stalls, so I can practice better safer sex.

Lara — Sex Educator/Sales Associate, SoHo

"I have the best job ever, believe it! I get to say the word 'clitoris' like 1,000 times a day — try and stop me! CLITORIS!... " More »

My Pick: Candy Colored Glass Dildo

Before I tried this toy, I didn't even know it was possible to feel so good with so little effort. The Candy Colored Glass Dildo is my go-to toy whenever I'm in the mood for some intense G-spot stimulation. And I love that the shape makes it easy to use alone or with a partner... plus, each one is hand-blown, one of a kind, and just plain gorgeous!

Mary — Retail Department Manager, NYC

"I work out of our Brooklyn store, and enjoy building a sex-positive community with customers from all over the borough... " More »

My Pick: Jimmyjane Form 6

The Jimmyjane Form 6 is probably the most versatile vibrator I have. It's perfect for firm G-spot stimulation, and clit vibration... plus, the pulsating patterns keep things interesting, and it's completely waterproof so I can use it in the bath. Other toys come and go, but this one occupies a special place in my heart (and my dresser drawer).

Greta — Web Marketing Manager, Oakland

"I've spent my life celebrating the sexual panorama, so I'm thrilled to be at Babeland doing work I love for a company I care about... " More »

My Pick: Rubber Paddle

I enjoy the element of surprise, and the Rubber Paddle is my traveling companion. I like how portable it is — if I'm out and about, I probably have my paddle and a roll of Babeland Bondage Tape with me. It keeps me exploring hot scenes in lots of unexpected places. Also unexpected: what a mighty wallop this little guy packs!
