    29 Sex Toys That Are So Essential They Practically Belong In Your Tool Box

    It's time to pull out your toolbox and get ~screwing~ — stat.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Wand by We-Vibe, a powerful body massager that'll relieve stress in your muscles on days when your body needs a break, with attachments that'll turn this massager into a truly ~kinky~ tool when the time is right.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed, We-Vibe

    I threw this at the top of the list because I own it and *love* it! It's intuitive, the silicone is silky soft, and the massage it gives your body is powerful. My husband and I use this daily for getting out kinks in our calves and relaxing our shoulders. The stroker attachment is great for penis-having folks who don't want a cock ring but still enjoy penile sensation, and the other attachment is faaabulous for foreplay or for light pressure buildup if you don't wanna finish too fast.

    Get it from We-Vibe for $179.

    2. A silky smooth rabbit with seven settings, two vibration modes, and a 4-inch girth, for giving your best bits something to brag about.

    Promising review: "This toy gave me my first ever dual-induced orgasm. It changed my world. I've cum from sex before with clit stimulation, just clit stimulation, and I've cum from only PIV sex before, but I've never had the experience of reaching climax both through insertion and through clit stimulation at the same time. This toy is a gorgeous work of art, even with that said, it still finds a way to feel better than it looks." —Anonymous

    Get it from Bellesa Boutique for $109 (available in two colors).

    3. Or a veiny, 9-inch rabbit that's sure to make your ~hair~ stand on end.

    It includes a USB cord for charging and has seven different vibration speeds. Plus, the head is flexible so you can hit just the right spot.

    Promising review: "This has got to be the BEST toy I’ve ever bought. Even on its highest setting it’s VERY quiet. I love all the texture on it; it's such a wonderful tease! I also love how soft the material is and how easy it is to clean! It’s not abrasive to my skin like some other toys can be. I would highly recommend this product." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    4. The AirVibe, a true fusion of sex toy favorites, is gonna take your body on a RIDE. It combines Bellesa's best-in-class G-spot vibrator technology with their Cinetic SuctionTM 2.0 technology. Thanks, Science.

    airvibe styled in a shell dish

    There are TEN vibration modes and five suuuper satisfying suction settings. Say that five times fast. And then slow. And then fast again. For detailed info on this dreamy device, check out my post about why this is worth the buzz.

    BTW, I *also* own this toy (I know how to take care of myself) and I am equal parts delighted and impressed by how high quality it is. The oral-simulating suction gives my clit constant attention while the adjustable design lets me choose to stimulate my vagina through penetration or external play. I also love stretching it out for perineum stimulation. You can play with this hands-on or hands-off (I highly recommend trying it out while standing up — it's perfect for shower sex). Now go get this. That is all.

    Get it from Bellesa Boutique for $59.

    5. A vibrating cock ring that'll cock-a-doodle-do what it takes to wake up your sex life.

    Promising review: "My partner and I use this at least twice a week. It's a great cock ring. The vibe is powerful yet quiet, and I love that it's USB rechargeable so there are no batteries to mess with. It's waterproof, so cleanup is a breeze. The ring itself can stretch to accommodate what I imagine is a WIDE variety of sizes and shapes. It doesn't delay the wearer's orgasm but rather heightens the strength of it, and WOW does my partner love it! The position of the cock ring can be changed depending on the position you're assuming. Placed up during missionary-type positions will stimulate her clit immensely. Placed down during missionary positions will stimulate the balls and her perineum. In a doggy position, with the cock ring placed down, it will stimulate the clit and balls equally. I highly recommend this as a way to add a little extra excitement." —Dani

    Get it from Amazon for $25.96.

    6. A pair of anal beads for some *mostly* hands-free fun. The gradual bead size is designed for helping you feel increasingly full, building up the pressure (and the pleasure) as you go.

    Promising review: "These silicone for these beads is super soft, I LOVE the textures to them, and the price for getting both is very reasonable!" —Sarah

    Get them from Bellesa Boutique for $19 (available in two colors).

    7. A strap-on with a dildo reviewers with strap-on experience say is equal parts comfy and cute. It even includes lube, so you can get on with the show the moment this sweet thing ships.

    Promising review: "I have just recently ordered the wearable strap on with included dildo I am INCREDIBLY satisfied with the product. As a queer femme lesbian, comfortable strap-ons that I feel good in can be hard to find. In the past, I've struggled with finding both quality and cost efficient options. The straps on other strap-ons that I have used have stretched out or not been able to hold securely but this is perfect for me. I love the detail on the back too. It feels sturdy but looks sexy and feminine." —Julia Taylor-Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $24.89.

    8. A pocket-sized vibe with a discreet carrying case that's simply gonna look like a makeup palette in your bag. Keep this on hand when you're traveling and enjoy an O practically anywhere you go.

    Promising review: "I wanted something small but was worried this vibe wouldn’t be strong enough, turns out I was very wrong! I'm really happy I bought this. Five stars — I’m obsessed!" —Steph

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

    Promising review: "So, I'm going to go right out and say that I have never been much of an 'outside stimulation' gal, but I'm almost positive this thing changed my life for the better. I'm way too obsessed with this, and I cannot WAIT to try it with my boyfriend. The only negative thing I have to say about this is that it's TOO GOOD. Be careful, you might get obsessed like I am!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97+ (available in three colors).

    10. A Fleshlight — a realistic-looking masturbation toy that can tighten or loosen to your heart's content.

    A realistic looking vagina opening with lips and a small clit placed inside a handle

    Promising review: "After seeing this product on a porn site and reading the reviews, I decided to take the plunge and purchase one. I followed the directions (run under warm water first, use water-based lubricant) and went to town on it! I could not believe the feeling — it's almost too real to believe! It's not a substitute for a real person (can't love you back), but a great alternative. Cleaning is easy. Just rinse with warm water, dry thoroughly, and powder with baby powder or corn starch. It's a great product to train with to learn control." —Sailboat Captain

    Get it from Amazon for $64.95+ (available in two styles).

    11. Or a realistic thrusting dildo with raised veins, a curved head, and two trusty testicles. This *treasure* has seven vibration modes and a suction cup base, giving you a chance for vaginal and anal penetration anywhere you wanna ~stick it~.

    This penetrative pal is USB rechargeable, has seven different vibration modes, five rotating/thrusting modes, and includes a bottle of lube, USB recharging cord, instructions, and a storage bag.

    Promising review: "I've been using this pretty hard the past couple of weeks and it shows no sign of breaking or slowing down. This thing is powerful, other ones I've used seem to stop any movement once they meet a little resistance. This dildo doesn't miss a step, it just keeps powering it's way through. It is easy to clean. I give this product 5 stars and recommend it to all." —K.L.

    Get it from Amazon for $36.69.

    12. A Kegel ball set that'll give your vagina a workout, helping it achieve some impressive compressions during penetrative sex (that'll, in turn, give you great orgasms). This'll come with a carrying case, varied weights, and a silicone insert.

    Promising review: "I never did Kegel exercises until after giving birth. Now it's part of the routine. This was my first time buying actual Kegel balls and so far so great. My muscles seem to contract while the balls are in without my even trying." —Cynthia

    Pre-order from Bellesa Boutique for $29.

    13. A Dame Fin, a finger vibe so satisfying you're gonna wanna give it your digits.

    Person with toy wrapped around two fingers

    Want even more versatile play? The tether is removable, so feel free to switch things up! It's water resistant, made of medical-grade silicone, is USB rechargeable, and has three speeds.

    Promising review: "Fin is easily the most pleasurable vibrator I have used. I love that it operates as an extension of myself. I am very satisfied with Fin in both solo play and with my partner. I am certain she would echo that sentiment." —Melissa M.

    Get it from Dame for $85 (available in two colors).

    14. A wrap-around rabbit with ultra-soft edges great for stimulating your nipples, clit, or to place around the base of your penis. The vibrating base is also great for both vaginal and anal penetration. Looking for a toy that does it all? You've found it!,

    This clever contraption has seven vibration modes, is 100% waterproof, and is designed with a USB rechargeable battery.

    Promising review: "This item was a great add to our collection. It is very versatile, offering numerous ways to use it. The ring allows for a great grip on my penis and helps me enter one hole while it is placed in the other. The tightness of it was enough to hold in place on me while stroking. The vibration settings were great at stimulating her to orgasm and made me feel great as well. It has great size and shape." —Newb 1337

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A pack of OhNut stackable rings, these'll help prevent pain from penetrative sex by creating a nice lil' buffer that'll be enjoyed by both you and your partner.

    Promising review: "I've had painful coitus for as long as I can remember and it was frustrating. It wasn't often that I wanted to have intercourse with my husband because I was so scared of the pain. He also never wanted to try to initiate it because he knew how bad the pain was. I've gone to doctors and they have just pushed me aside and did nothing for me. Ohnut literally made me feel zero pain and all pleasure. The first time in a long time. HIGHLY recommend this product." —Tay1994

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $65 (available in two colors).

    16. An adjustable cup with irresistible ridges you can use to enhance stroking when powered off or create an even more intense sensation with the vibration setting is on.,

    This has ten different massage modes and includes a USB charging port.

    Promising review: "I was surprised to see that the packaging was so premium. This little toy comes with a rechargeable battery and charging port which are fully covered by the silicone, hence water resistance. Using this toy was definitely a different feeling because it has 10 different vibrations other than your typical hand movement. The toy is also extremely convenience to carry around so you could take this wherever you go and no one will notice." —Jackie Li

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    17. A riding toy sure to giddy-upgrade your masturbation techniques, cowpoke.

    Bellesa Boutique

    Promising review: "This is easily the most unique toy I've ever owned. I didn't really know what to expect but I'm soooo happy with it. The little finger strap makes it easy to hold onto, plus there's a remote so me and my partner are having a lot of fun figuring out all the ways to make it work. Definitely recommend!" —Andrea

    Get it from Bellesa Boutique for $109.

    18. A Jack 2-in-1 stroker with a ribbed stroker cavity for some truly delectable, sensual suction. This is great for anatomy that's at least 1/2-inch in diameter.

    New York Toy Collective

    Promising review: "Amazing product. Soft to the touch. Love the design, it’s sort of a half-erect shape. A bit smaller than I expected, I feel like a Greek statue while wearing it, in a good way. 🙂

    I’m pre-T, but I still managed to get some suction by pressing it against my own bits and then 'pumping' on the shaft, creating a vacuum. Rubbing the balls against my own junk also helped to create additional sensation. Due to its small size, I found Jack absolutely great for bottoming. Doesn’t get in the way while still helping me to cope with my bottom dysphoria amazingly well. Haven’t tried packing with it yet, but it’s certainly not too big or bulgy and I gotta admit I find it very cute to wear. Small dicks deserve more love. <3" —Summer

    Get it from New York Toy Collective for $59 (available in four colors).

    19. A sex ramp — this multi-use cushion is gonna elevate your sex position game, literally.

    Couple using positionable wedge in 69 position

    This has a removable, washable cover that's made of a poly/nylon mix to resist moisture. The insert is made of high-density foam and works swell for folks over 300 pounds.

    Promising review: "So far this ramp has exceeded our expectations in almost every way. It is something the two of us have been interested in for a long time, and now I wish we would have broke down and bought it sooner. This ramp helps us to find new ways to explore each other, and experience new sensations. My wife is fairly petite, and I am 6'3" — with this ramp, we have been able to line up in ways that just weren't feasible before. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking to add a vital tool to their bedroom. The only downside we have found is storing it, so the kids aren't constantly trying to do gymnastics on it." —Cmitchrun

    Get it from Liberator for $200+ (available in six colors).

    20. A set of Tenga eggs, textured single-use masturbation sleeves that'll make date night *with yourself* particularly egg-cellent.


    Each of the six eggs has a different texture and comes with its own packet of lube.

    Promising review: "I enjoy the playful, but also subtle packaging, and the size of these is very convenient for travel. Especially on the first time with each egg, it's fun to unwrap them and find out exactly what each texture is on the inside. The material is extremely supple and very skin-like. I enjoyed the small packet of lube that came with each as well, as it lasted quite a while and had excellent texture." —DrinkGeek

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $28.24+ (available in three packs).

    21. A *waterproof* inflatable anal plug so you can always enjoy a totally customized fit — no ifs, ands, or butts about it.

    the black anal pump with the part you insert, a tube, and then the balloon you squeeze

    Promising review: "You have got to try this one!! Wow! As a bi man I love anal play. Have for a long long time and used many toys, even regular plugs, but never an inflatable one. When we got this my wife opened it first, she took me straight to the bedroom. She has a thing for having control over guys' asses. Oh my gosh! With a pump it is ready for insertion. I think even a beginner could accommodate it with lube, of course. And the size it gets is totally up to you. And the sensation is equal to the size you make it. Unfortunately for me, or maybe fortunately, I was taken to the limits. And what a glorious way to be made so weak in the legs you can't stand, or think straight, or be calm. To say this toy is fun doesn't even cover it. All I can say is buy one. Even if you don't have a freaky woman to assault your ass I am pretty sure you're going to find yourself going back to it again and again all on your own! You can't resist it!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    22. A couple's vibe for making sure you and your boo are ~vibing~ at the same time.

    Promising review: "What an experience for a couple! We could not have been more pleased! It's beautifully designed. I never leave reviews but this one deserved it.

    Get it from We-Vibe for $139.

The bullet is so strong too, I can only use it on the first setting!!

    26. A pair of furry handcuffs — a classic kink accessory for times when you're feeling equal parts naughty and nice.

    Quick-release handcuffs covered in black fur

    Get them from FeelMore for $21.99 (available in three colors).

    27. A love strap sure to give added support in doggy style if placed under the receiver's hips (which is great if you have limited mobility or have a hard time reaching your G in this position). Doggy style not your thing? This might still be for you! It can really help with pressure and tempo in several different positions.
