    29 Perfect Hoe-Phase Sex Toys That'll Help You Get Started (And Get Off)

    The weather is warming up and so is my libido...

    First things first, "hoe" is not a bad word. Nor is it a bad thing. Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about a #hoephase. When does it happen? Maybe you're out of your first serious relationships, maybe you are ready to buy your first or second sex toy, maybe you want to explore your sexuality a little bit — anything can be a hoe phase.

    Definition of the term "hoe-phase"

    1. The scintillating Satisfyer Pro 2, boasting 11 intensities of no-contact clitoral stimulation, so you can ride wave after wave of pleasure.

    Promising reviews: "Two words: squirt machine! This thing will make you have an endless orgasm with squirting buckets included! Warning: Have extra sheets because after two to five minutes of use, the bed will be wet and after 15 minutes nothing will be dry! Nothing (you, partner, clothes, bed, walls, and floor)!! Awesome device!" —william ross moore

    "Fucking AMAZING. Quiet when *in use* but once you pull away on higher settings, it's a bit louder. Still not as loud as an hitachi though which is very nice. But yes, it works amazing. I can't even make it to the highest setting." —Olivia Welp

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in rose gold and violet).

    2. A cock ring equipped with a textured vibrating pad to stimulate the clit or balls — your pick.

    The silicone ring stretches to fit a variety of penises (or dildos), and the vibrator has 5 speeds and patterns for up to 25 varying intensities.

    Promising reviews: "This is a great addition to solo or couple's play. The ring is super stretchy and can fit around any of our toys. Loved when she was on top. She was able to grind on it without having to hold a heavy vibrator. Super quick and easy to clean and charges quickly! It's pretty quiet considering how intense the vibration can be." —Howard Martin

    "This vibrating ring is made out of good-quality material. It's soft and stretchy with a nice snug fit but not too tight. It can be worn in a variety of ways and used in different positions. The vibrations are pretty powerful while also being relatively quiet. The battery lasts quite awhile but charges pretty quickly. And best of all, it's super easy to clean because it's waterproof and can even be used underwater. I highly recommend this product. It's not too expensive and was shipped discreetly." —NSFB

    Get it from Amazon for $35.66.

    3. A hands-free Eva vibrator by Dame that can be used alone or with a partner in case clitoral stimulation is a MUST for your guaranteed satisfaction.

    Formally known as the Eva II, the flexible wings are designed to tuck under your labia to help stay put and out of the way during all kinds of play.

    Promising review: "I was so nervous about trying Eva due to the design and diagrams provided on the website. When I saw there were free returns, I decided, 'Why not?' When Eva arrived, the instructions recommended I try it out without a partner first, so I did, apprehensively. My mind was BLOWN. Not only does Eva make my personal orgasms so much better (and I get to them much quicker), but it has also made reaching simultaneous climax a lot easier to achieve with my husband. I love love love Eva, and can’t recommend this product enough! Even if you are nervous, trust me — you want to try it out." —Louisa C.

    Get it from Dame for $135 or Amazon for $130.21+ (available in quartz or fir).

    4. The BuzzFeed x Bellesa AirVibe, boasting a waterproof design, over 1,500 reviews, and 15 intensity levels of dual stimulation.

    Uhh...I love this toy? I find myself reaching for it a lot because that dual stimulation does something to me that other toys can't and it's incredible. More importantly, the flexibility of the shaft helped me find the perfect position, and as a bigger person it's really nice to have a toy fit my body without too much effort on my part. I'm still tinkering with the power of the AirVibe and finding the perfect combination of its 10 vibration settings and five delicious suction intensities. 

    Promising review: "This is my go-to for sure! It alwaysss gives me the best O’s and even has made me squirt by myself (which never happened before). I’m pretty sure I performed some type of exorcism on myself one of the first times I used it, it’s that good. If I could give it 12 stars I would. I tell all my friends to buy it too. Love it!" —Julia

    "Highly recommend, hits all the right spots! Lots of settings for a customized experience." —HappyCustomer

    Get it from Bellesa Boutique for $99.

    5. A unique cushion designed with contoured tips for an extra-stimulating sensation, whether you're using it as a dildo base or getting your grind on.

    This toy is made of supple silicone and stretches to fit a variety of dildo bases up to 3.25 inches wide.

    Promising reviews: "Works great with a harness and pretty much any strap-on dildo my partner and I own. Would highly recommend. Easy clean and came exactly as described. Super-soft material. 5/5." —Jacquie

    "This made the base of so many dildos much more pleasurable to me! I use it with and without the harness... Sometimes I will put it on the base of a dildo that I am using manually and then grind against it. Great stimulation!" —Blank

    Get it from Wet for Her for $35.95 (originally $39.95; available in black or blue).

    6. A hand-sculpted artisan dildo, just perfect for play with several design options including gentle curves, a suction cup base, and a girth to make your eyes roll back.

    Promising reviews: "Beautiful, well-made, perfect size and shape, pretty much the best one ever." —Anonymous (on Sin City)

    "I love sex toys, this one is the newest one in my collection. This brand makes the most soft and sensational sex toys that I've ever used. The feel is wonderful to the skin and if you're looking for something more on the bigger side this is the right one for you. I generally prefer dildos with a more narrow head so if you're like me you may have a hard time (pun intended) getting this one in but I took on the challenge. I just had to get very lubricated and extra turned on in order to fit this big boy, but in the end I had that feeling of fullness that I was looking for accompanied by the amazing texture from the toy and ended up coming super hard and feeling completely satisfied. Highly recommend for that lonely weekend or with some fun with your partner :)" —Satisfied customer (on Summer Fling)

    Get them from Amazon for $39.63+ (General collection) and $19.94+ (Pride collection).

    7. An über-popular boxer brief harness that offers comfort and does away with complicated buckles and straps, so you can focus more on the actual pleasure of the moment.

    These cotton-blend boxers are double layered for dependable support and can accommodate dildos with a 1.5-inch O-ring diameter on the base. Two interior pockets for bullet vibrators are strategically placed around the O-ring to add a little more rumble. Check out the site for more colors and prints!

    Promising review: "When the RodeoH harness hit the scene, the trans guy community was raving about it. I saw it plastered on every tumblr. I saw people gushing about the design and how comfortable it looked. And I couldn’t help myself — I wanted it. So when my boss surprised me with one as a gift, I was ecstatic. I could only wait a few days before trying it out. Now, strap-ons are not a usual part of my sexual repertoire. My dysphoria is such that I’d prefer to use what I have than replace what I lack. But the RodeoH changed that. It is immensely comfortable and the lack of things to fiddle with (straps, buckles, Velcro, ties, etc), was absolutely fabulous. If you’re like me and like your harness to be strapped down tight, I recommend getting a size smaller than you may be sized for. I was concerned about the elasticity of the fabric but it proved remarkably sturdy in practical application. While fucking, it stays in place, didn’t slip, didn’t pinch, and most importantly, I barely noticed it was there. For folks who are looking for a streamlined harness that won’t get in their way, or who are looking for a no fuss harness, the Rodeoh is it." —Addison

    Get it from Rodeoh for $49.99 (available in sizes XXXS–3X).

    Rodeoh is a woman-operated small business based in San Francisco that designs and curates inclusive and gender-affirming sexual wellness products.

    8. A mellow orange curvy vibrator with a unique floral textured bulb to stimulate you internally or externally and share all the good vibes.

    Promising reviews: "Really beautiful design and love how the shaft is thin so it doesn’t hurt when you use it. Personally the G-spot was foreign to me, so took some getting used to. Works for external pleasure too so it caters to all kinds of vibes. I really liked it as an intro to G-spot stimulation and the design is elegant - feels like proper self care." —Stephanie F.

    "This vibrator is such high quality and feels so luxurious. The different speeds and levels make it so much fun to play with and it definitely hits the right spot. The rose detail on the head makes external stimulation so much more intense. Enjoy using both alone and with a partner. This vibrator has it all, different speeds and levels, 100% waterproof and a discreet bag!" —Rebecca H.

    Get it from Vush for $110.

    Vush is an Australia-based sexual wellness brand that’s all about self-love and creating IGworthy sex toys that’ll rock your world and match your aesthetic.

    9. A unique vibrator by Bellesa that's like your finger...but better, with 105 textured rods for extra stimulation and a flickering "tongue" with 10 intensities to deliver that simulated oral feeling.

    Or...like your finger, if it could move on double speed.

    Promising review: "Your finger but better? An actual understatement of the year. This toy is AMAZING. Typically I'm not a big fan of direct stimulation and have been leaning more towards the air toys that don't make me numb, but this toy is a game changer. Direct clit stimulation yes but numb? Absolutely not!! Thanks to the soft and sensual tongue moving at amazing speeds, I'm able to have multiple intense orgasms. This toy literally leaves me shaking. My boyfriend loves to use it on me and keep it on till I squirt. 10000000/10 would recommend. And for the price? Blows many luxury $200.00+ toys out of the water!" —Sani

    "So small you can take it anywhere, gets things going right when you feel like being a horn-dog, and the softest, cutest tiny tongue for your cute af clit. Finger-licking good." —Sandi

    Get it from Bellesa Boutique for $59.

    10. A uniquely shaped vibrating cock ring by Fun Factory with rabbit ear attachments to stimulate your lover's clitoris with each stroke during PIV.

    Or, use it with your fingers to finger your lover or wear it during a blowjob for added stimulation to the perineum during oral. The vibrating component boasts two motors with four settings and a "flirt" mode.

    Promising review: "This is great for amping up intercourse for both the wearer and partner. I definitely need lube to get it on and off, as it is rather tight on me. Once on, it is comfortable and stays in place. We have several Fun Factory toys and while expensive, have always been impressed with their quality and functionality." —Anonymous

    Get it from Lovehoney for $99 (available in teal and black).

    11. A soft, wedge-shaped Pillo by Dame that supports all your favorite positions. Whether getting off alone or with a partner, this pillow will be there when you need it.

    Promising reviews: "It’s really amazing how much of a difference this makes. We are a gay male couple and I wasn’t sure if the pillow would be good for same sex couples but it definitely is. The firmness is great for ALL positions. It surpassed my standards." —Leonardo D.

    "Quality made and good firmness. A pillow to use for more than good sex positions and support. Washable cover is a plus." —Patrice B.

    Get it from Dame for $95.

    12. An oh-so-convenient Ohnut set constructed with a stretchy, body-safe material to fit your favorite penis or dildo and offer extra cushioning during penetration.

    This unique wearable is designed to help people manage pain and customize penetration depth (depending on the number of rings worn) without sacrificing sensation. Though it's stretchy, Ohnut is designed in two sizes: Classic and Wider, which can be determined based on condom sizing!

    Promising reviews: "At first I thought this was a regular cock ring, but it provides so much more. The material is stretchy and great for those of us that have had circulation cut off from lesser products. It provides an adjustable buffer, which my partner and I can adjust per sexual experience. And it even works for personal masturbation." —B.

    "Due to my size my wife and I couldn’t enjoy doggy style. Enter Ohnut. She is now able to enjoy it again thanks to the buffer stopping me from going too far. Also, I can’t even tell it’s on. We couldn’t be happier with this miracle product. 10/10 would recommend!" —Andrew

    Get it from Ohnut for $65 (available in jade and aloe).

    Ohnut Co. is a women-founded wellness company that believes in ending the cycle of silence and discomfort, so people can rediscover the joy of connection.
