    All the required batteries are included so you can start getting freaky ASAP.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a cheeky little gift to spice things up a bit. So glad I did. The little bullet is incredible. It was our first time using any kind of vibrator and I will never look back! The cock ring rocked my world! The stroker left my man wrecked. To say he loved it would be an understatement. If you're thinking about buying this set, go for it! I was so anxious about introducing some toys, but we're eager to use them again and make some more naughty purchases." —Kat_1988

    Get it from Lovehoney for $29.99.

    Psst...if you're not used to penetration, this might not be the toy for you, since the insertable part is pretty girthy. And if you like the sound of this, check out our full roundup of affordable sex toys here.

    Promising review: "Don't be embarrassed to try new things. This is wonderful. I thought my vagina was broken. First try, on my own, I had an orgasm within two minutes. Second try, with my partner, I had one and then another with him!!!!" —Amazon Fan

    Get it from Amazon for $29.98.

    5. A set of Tenga eggs, which open to reveal an awesomely textured, single-use masturbation sleeve and give new meaning to the expression "beat an egg" — even for penis owners who usually just stick to their hands.


    Each egg contains water-based lube so you won't be scrambling to find some in the heat of the moment. This set includes six eggs-ellent different textures, and yes, okay, I will stop with the yolks now.

    Promising review: "I bought these for my boyfriend, because he had never used toys before and I thought this would be the easiest thing to see if he liked them or not. He's kinda rough when he plays, so I got him the 'hard boiled' ones. We have a long distance relationship at the moment, so we do a lot of playing around online and I thought this would be a good, fun change of pace for him. He tried his first one yesterday and we used it several times that day. He really loved it. <3 He's extremely happy with these and it's definitely made our play time more fun. I really enjoy seeing him so happy and excited and he had really nice orgasms with these. I'm also excited to use these on him, and I just think they're awesome! He does, too!" —Candy Zimmerman

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $31.22.

    6. The I Rub My Duckie, a seven-speed vibrator that you can easily display in your bathroom and no one will be the wiser. And since the whole duck vibrates, you can play around with where you like the most stimulation. I can't think of a less intimidating first toy, or one more likely to make you ~quack~ up. Yup, this fits the ~bill~.

    the toy, which looks like a classic rubber duck

    Too many puns again? Sorry not sorry. Anywho, he's latex-free and waterproof (of course), and he floats just like a regular rubber duck! And don't worry - there's plenty more bath-time-approved sex toys where the comes from!

    Promising review: "This is my favorite toy by far (and I have plenty). It's my most-used vibrator and it's always on my nightstand. The best thing about it is the many different ways you can use it and the different vibrations and feelings it gives (the beak on your clit, the head in your vagina, the flat belly resting on your lips, and many MORE!). Definitely worth it whether it's your first toy or you're just adding to your collection." —Anonymous

    Get it from Babeland for $37.99. Get a pack of four AAA batteries (the duckie requires one) here.

    7. A super realistic, flexible dildo designed with dual density to make it feel *that* much more lifelike. Its 7-inch total length has a 5.5-inch insertion size, which makes it comfortable for beginners, and for both anal and vaginal use.

    Adam & Eve

    It's got a strong suction cup base and also works with a strap-on harness.

    Promising review: "This was my first ever dildo and I have to say I'm glad I did not get a giant one lol. This was the perfect size for me and it feels so real — it's insane. Give this a try if you're new to exploring toys!" –MiaSophia

    Get it from Adam & Eve for $44.95 (available in two skin tones).

    8. The Lelo Lily 2, a quiet, pretty, and gently curved vibe designed to provide tons of external stimulation, if penetration and phallic-looking toys just aren't what you're looking for. It's also designed to work between your and a partner's bodies if you need a little help to the finish line.


    It's USB-rechargeable (and can last up to four hours with one charge), waterproof, and has eight different settings to help you figure out what you like. It's also SCENTED, with sexy aromas like chocolate, rose, or honey. Remember the scented markers you had in elementary school? This is the grown-up version and even more fun.

    Promising review: "As a first-time user, I couldn't be happier. I'm new to the world of toys, so I wanted to start small with something that wasn't too big or extravagant. However, this device has been AWESOME for solo play and the different settings make for a different experience each time."—Sexploration

    Get it from Lelo for $112 (originally $149; available in three colors).

    9. A double-ended, latex-free anal prober so you can figure out ~what what~ you like ~up your butt~.

    Some reviewers have also had fun with it vaginally!

    Promising review: "For those who have never used an anal toy, this is great for beginners! Both ends are completely different but still maximize your orgasm. The toy is firm but so easy to use and is super easy to clean. I recommend this for beginners 100%, as it really does intensify the overall orgasm." —Xbsjsisjxnaidn

    Get it from Lovehoney for $12.99.

    10. A sultry remote-controlled vibe and panty set for anyone who wants to try out getting (discreetly) sexy in public. Just pop the 12-speed, eight-pattern, waterproof vibe into the adjustable panties' pouch, hand the remote to your partner, and go to town (literally).

    The remote works within eight meters (about 26 feet).

    Promising review: "My fiancé got this for me for Christmas and we decided to use it when we were out for a meal, and it was amazing. It comes with some sexy underwear, which ties on the sides so it's good for any size. The underwear has a little pocket in for the toy. It was so powerful and discreet. The toy itself is lovely and smooth and easy to clean, and it comes with a nice case where you can discreetly charge it through the side. Perfect for keeping it hidden from view. It's the perfect toy for keeping your love life a little exciting and it has a long battery life too. I love it and it's brought a lot of fun into our lives." —Ohloveoh

    Get it from Lovehoney for $89.99.

    11. A waterproof vibrating silicone starfish friend folks of all body types can easily grind up against to their heart's content and that truly puts the ~naughty~ in nautical.

    Cute Little Fuckers

    It has five modes and five speeds and is rechargeable, and it's specifically designed to work for all types of genitals and even cover them during sexy times for users who experience dysphoria. The awesome brand, Cute Little Fuckers, is queer-owned and makes a whole line of waterproof, adorable, and inclusive toys!

    Promising review: "My partner and I have had so much fun with this! It's so soft and all the different parts have such different sensations. The bullet is so strong too, I can only use it on the first setting!! As a nonbinary person I've been so pleased with this toy — it really alleviates any dysphoria I have about playing and it's such a relief! What a lovely toy from an incredible company!" —Kate

    Get it from Cute Little Fuckers for $79.

    12. The California Exotics Butterfly Kiss vibrator for internal and external stimulation that'll make you wanna spread your horizons and your wings, that's for damn sure.

    The blue toy with an insertable bulb and butterfly-shaped external stimulation part

    It's waterproof and has three vibration speeds, not to mention over 2,000 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "DAMN! I wanted something smaller and simpler for my first vibrator, but I definitely wanted something that works. Well, this works, 100%! When I took it out of the box, I was wondering if I could return it, because it looked puny. My boyfriend convinced me to try it once, and I'm NEVER giving it back. The head is just the right size to get my G-spot, and the clit stimulator is second only to an actual tongue (better than, on some occasions). I never knew something with AAA batteries could be so powerful — I haven't even used the third speed yet, and I'm finishing breathless. FANTASTIC!"—Devon D.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.25+ (available in two colors). Get the required AAA batteries here.

    13. A waterproof, textured cock ring so you can start to experiment with toys with your partner in way that helps you both get off. This bad boy provides clitoral stimulation and is designed to help the wearer last longer.

    It charges fully via USB in an hour, so it'll get charged up almost as fast as you 😉. Plus, it is waterproof and has five speeds and five patterns you can mix and match, and it can be flipped around to work in all different positions or even for people with penises to use solo.

    Promising review: "I love this thing. It's the first toy we used as a couple and it was magical. We both finished with one of the most intense climaxes of our life. I would highly suggest this product for anyone looking to spice up the bedroom!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    14. A powerful, 7-inch vibrator that's shockingly quiet, for anyone who really wants to go at it without fear of their roommates hearing. As for stopping YOURSELF from being noisy, that I can't help you with.

    Hand holding the ridged purple vibe

    And if you're looking for some more quiet vibrators, we've got you covered.

    Promising review: "I was very hesitant at first as I’ve never used anything like this before. I wasn’t sure which one to get, but my boyfriend suggested it and I definitely do not regret it. Very intense and powerful, great for use together or solo! Also is so quiet — I was shocked by how quiet! Highly recommend!" —Paige9894

    Get it from Lovehoney for $24.99 (available in two colors). Get a pack of four C batteries (the vibe needs one) here.

    15. A discreet, quiet, and classic bullet vibe that could be easily mistaken for a tube of lipstick, so you can take it on the go worry-free. And listen, I love lipstick, but last time I checked, my favorite tube of Fenty didn't have six nut-worthy vibration speeds.


    In fact, I recently gifted one of these to a friend to be her first vibe, because it seemed so fun yet accessible for beginners. It's also waterproof and USB-rechargeable, and you don't even need a cord for it — just remove the tip and plug it in to your laptop like a flash drive!

    Promising review: "This is my first time buying a toy of this sort because I thought, how could anything be better than my own digits...well, it is!!! It's amazing and, shall I say, never-ending! ; )" —whispers22

    Get it from Lelo for $89 (available in three colors).

    16. A The We-Vibe Melt clitoral suction toy to easily and ~breezily~ be used solo or with a special someone. It pairs with an app so you and a partner can have lots of fun, even from far away (WiFi-permitting, of course).


    This lil' number has 12 settings and is USB-rechargeable!

    Promising review: "Must-have. I purchased this as I'm unable to see my boyfriend due to the lockdown. We were having regular phone sex via video chat, but we wanted to feel more connected. I'm a sucker for clitoral stimulation, so when I saw he can control the toy and how it will feel against my clit from his house, I had to buy it. It was packaged well and easy to use. It's made from super soft silicone, which feels very sensual against the skin. It's easy to clean and store. It wasn't very loud on the low to middle settings. We played around for a little to make me wet and to get a feel for the toy, then he increased the intensity to about half, and I orgasmed so fast. He feels really turned on controlling my orgasms even from somewhere else. Highly recommend for people who are away from their partners." —Tattooed Barbie

    Get it from Lovehoney for $149.99 (available in two colors).

    17. An under-$15 (yes, really) mini G-spot vibe so you can give the world of toys a try and, if you don't like it (I mean, you will, but hypothetically) you'll only be out the price of, like, 1.5 trips to Starbucks.

    hand holding the small pink vibe with curved tip

    Promising review: "This is an absolutely amazing vibrator! Very powerful! Easy to use and easy to clean. Extremely affordable and worth every penny! This is a slim, non-intimidating vibe, perfect for beginners or travel. Nice and compact, this will fit easily into a bag or purse. Perfect for couples or alone time. Very satisfied." —LiveYourBestLife

    Get it from Lovehoney for $12.99 (available in two colors). Get a pack of four AA batteries (the vibe requires one) here.

    18. A sleek and splurge-worthy cock ring that heard you say that plain old partnered sex couldn't get any better, then said "hold my beer." Or "hold my lube." IDK what sex toys drink but you get the point.


    It has six settings that'll ~cock~ your world, is waterproof, can be worn up or down, and comes with a USB charging cord and luxe satin pouch.

    Promising review: "I purchased this about a month ago and it's been great for both of us. The wife loves it!!! This is the first toy that we've tried and could not be happier. She has an orgasm with in a few minutes of me entering her. This is the first time she has ever had an orgasm while I have been in her, which of course gets me off at the same time or shortly thereafter. The Tor 2 has refreshed our sex life after 30 years of marriage." —Penn State

    Get it from Lelo for $139 (available in two colors).

    19. An internally textured stroker so folks on HRT with bottom growth can get off with a toy that's just right for their body.

    Get it from Rodeoh for $26.

    20. A trainer set of butt plugs to help you gradually build up to the backdoor fun your body's been assking for.

    small medium and large curved plugs

    Promising review: "Nice graduated sizes, the curved shape is very ergonomic and comfortable. You can wear these while you were doing other things very comfortably. I don't know why all but plugs aren't curve like this because they should be." –Will Story

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $16.99.

    21. A finger vibe so you can get used to the feel of a vibrator during a good-ol'-fashioned fingering session.


    This USB-chargeable and waterproof toy has three speeds. Reviewers love to use it solo and during sex, especially those that need a little clitoral stimulation to help *get them there*. 

    Promising review: "This vibrator is a game changer! It’s a great size, easy to clean and really helps with the orgasms ;)" –Emilia B.

    Get it from Dame for $85.

    22. Satisfyer 2.0 masturbator complete with a skin-like interior, interchangeable sleeves, and a discreet design so no one will jump to any conclusions if they see it propped up next to your bed (or wherever else you do your thang).

    the black Satisfyer 2.0
    Bellesa Boutique

    This waterproof toy has a width of 3.7-inches, a total length of 10.2-inches, and an insertable length of 8.5-inches.

    Promising review: "This was my boyfriend’s first in many ways. He had a rather thick member and I was concerned it would be uncomfortable for him. All I have heard since I gifted him this toy is nothing but how good it feels. So happy with this purchase and our masturbation sessions! Highly recommend!" –Anonymous 

    Get it from Bellesa Boutique for $49 (available in two colors). 

    23. A biodegradable vibe that can be used externally and internally, so beginners can embark on a full exploration of their - uh - nether regions. It's also available in two sizes, so you can really find your most comfy companion.

    It's made with Biofeel, a plant-based material that's better for the environment and gentle on your skin!

    Promising review: "So this is my first one. Ever. And it’s a great starter! It’s shaped just right. It’s smooth and thankfully not made with latex (huge allergy). The power on this is amazing for how small it is! It’s small but mighty ;)" –heather patrick

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in three colors and in a smaller size).

    24. And finally, some top-rated antibacterial toy cleaner and lube to complete your ~special package~. Because if there's anything you need to know about sex toys, it's to clean them after each use and to USE A WATER-BASED LUBE, PEOPLE!


    Other types of lube aren't good for your toys.

    Promising review (for the cleaner): "Great product. Feels clean and rinses off completely. I have very sensitive skin and a lot of products cause issues when used in sensitive areas. This cleanser works very well, does not adversely affect toy materials, and has not caused me any discomfort. I would definitely recommend to my friends!" —Whitney V

    Promising review (for the lube): "I've tried other kinds of lube and this is still my preferred one. The texture is perfect and it's not too oily like other ones. Be sure to apply more as needed, though. Very good product and has brought me some extremely pleasurable moments. :)" —A. Kim

    Get the toy cleaner for $8.99 and a two-pack of the lube for $9.08, both from Amazon.
