Womanizer has gained a reputation for revolutionizing sex toys with their “Pleasure Air Technology.” It takes the focus off penetration or direct clitoral stimulation, instead offering orgasms through gentle sucking and soft vibrations. The Starlet uses that same technology, but for half the price of the original Womanizer.
As the smallest toy in the line, the 3.5″ Starlet is a perfect travel companion and may be used more easily during partnered play. It features four intensity levels and many of the same convenient elements of the original, like an easy to clean removable silicone tip, USB charging, and a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty. In the world of high-end sex toys, Starlet is already a shining star. Pick one up before they sell out, and give the gift of a new kind of orgasmic experience this holiday season!
Speaking of innovation, b-Vibe has created a silky smooth silicone butt plug that simulates the feel of a rim job! The b-vibe Rimming Plug Petite is a smaller and more beginner-friendly edition of their signature anal sex toy, the Rimming Plug 2. The rotating beads in the neck provide seven rimming modes that feel like a sensually circling tongue or finger, and the internal motor offers six vibration patterns.
This design is great for relaxing the anal sphincter muscles, which is very helpful for solo anal penetration or playing with a partner. Partners can even take things to a new level by using the included wireless remote control that works up to 30 feet away. Domination and submission are fun to explore together when one partner is in charge of the remote and the other wears the plug. It is even quiet enough to sneakily wear out of the house for an extra kinky date night!
One of our best-selling books this season is from local sex educator and author, Stella Harris, and for good reason! Tongue Tied: Untangling Communication in Sex, Kink, and Relationships is for anyone who wants to improve their communication skills, both in and out of the bedroom.
Whether someone is new to modern sex and dating, wanting to address relationship issues, wondering how to bring up a kink or fetish, or navigating BDSM for the first or fiftieth time, this book is a wonderful go-to resource. Through personal examples, practice exercises, and other tools, Tongue Tied takes readers on an educational and often self-reflective journey.
While sex position books and guides to specific sex acts are great to have around, good sex can’t happen without solid communication. Do your love life a favor and pick up a copy of Tongue Tied today!
Looking for a new implement to use in your scenes? How about Paddle Daddy’s Medium Wooden Paddle in eye-catching Zebrawood?
Paddle Daddy paddles are handcrafted in Oregon and finished to perfection, with a furniture quality coating to keep spankings safe and splinter-free for both giver and receiver. This wooden paddle can produce a satisfying thud or deep stinging sensation, which may stir up rushes of adrenaline and put spankees in the sub space they often crave. Its small to medium grip size makes it easy for most people to hold and wield, yet its 12 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ size allows it to be tucked away in a drawer. Just don’t put it in a kitchen drawer, lest a vanilla housemate discovers it and assumes it is a wooden cutting board!
The Fun Factory Volta has captured the hearts (and clits) of many sex toy reviewers. What makes this rechargeable vibrator so special? The unique shape and fluttering tips! Some say the flexible silicone “fins” make Volta look like a dolphin, but once they start exploring all of the different ways this dynamic design may be used, they realize Volta goes beyond playful.
This toy can get down to serious business with its six rumbly and powerful vibration intensities. Spread the tips open to surround the clitoris. Try it on just one side of the clit, against the labia, with one tip against the vaginal opening, or on the nipples for other kinds of stimulation. It can even be used as a stroker or during blowjobs by placing the tips on either side of the shaft. The Volta is versatile, colorful, waterproof, and smart — a most excellent addition to any toy box!
Are you or a partner proudly femme or feel most confident when your harnesses look like lingerie? If so, we recommend the Spareparts Sasha Harness. Just like other underwear-style harnesses, Sasha is ready to go without needing to adjust straps or buckle in. It has all of the convenient features found in most Spareparts harnesses: breathable and machine-washable fabric, a built-in flexible O-ring that accommodates multiple dildo sizes, and cleverly hidden bullet vibe pockets to give the wearer extra stimulation.
What really sets Sasha apart though, is the flattering ruching and silky ribbon accents that make it feel like wearing a pair of fancy panties you only put on for special occasions. Fortunately, Sasha is durable and versatile enough to wear all the time. It also comes with some special extras, like removable garter belts and cute matching storage and mesh laundry bags to keep it (and you) looking gorgeous.
All of Blush’s Avant sex toys are colorful, hand sculpted, and modern in design, but we are most excited about their Pride line. Our favorite of their artisanal Pride dildos is the Avant Trans Pride Dildo, which captures the colors of the Transgender Pride Flag.
This dildo is handcrafted with platinum cured silicone in small batches. It has a bulbous head and a uniquely curved shaft, designed with prostate and G-spot pleasure in mind. It especially receives great reviews from those who use it for anal play. The Trans Pride Dildo is harness compatible and has a strong suction cup base, which allows it to attach to a surface (we hear it’s great fun stuck to a shower wall). Perhaps the best part of all is that it is a high-quality affordable toy. The Avant Trans Pride Dildo is only $40!
The Flip Zero is an updated version of Tenga’s beloved Flip Hole masturbation sleeve. This new and improved design puts the hinge at the entrance of the sleeve rather than the back, to create a better seal between the halves for less lube leakage and maximum squeeze and suction. The Flip Zero has a futuristic yet discreet look on the outside, and a mesmerizing internal structure that was developed with the user’s enjoyment in mind.
Flip Zero Black is the version that is said to have the boldest texture to date. The inside features details such as a geared edge, which provides intensity immediately upon insertion, and the cross rampart, which stimulates each part of the penis as it passes through the overlapping layers. Beyond those sensuous nubs and ribs, there are also dynamic orb shapes to surprise and delight those who like to thrust deeply. Looking for an even more intense experience? Try the Tenga Flip Zero with Electronic Vibration!
The Unihorn Stardust by Rocks Off is a vibrator that looks like a magical unicorn horn. What more needs to be said?! How about that it has a lovely tapered shape that could be used for internal vaginal vibration or targeted external stimulation on the clitoris, nipples, or head of the penis? What about that its mesmerizing spiral pattern and smooth metallic finish not only feel terrific on the skin, but remind us of Lisa Frank’s whimsical technicolor art?
If all of that hasn’t convinced you yet, perhaps knowing that this playful little toy is only $26 and comes with a 1 year warranty will have you popping Unihorn vibes into the stockings of every rainbow-, unicorn-, or fantasy-loving friend on your list. Just don’t forget to grab an extra one for yourself!
Bits & Bubbles soaps are handmade in Molalla, Oregon and each mold is created directly from an actual human through a process called lifecasting. Lifecasting captures all of the fine details in each body part, leading to realistic and intimate final products. Three of our favorites include Sunflower, Foxglove, and Tulip.
The pastel yellow Sunflower Vulva has a very clean, crisp and citrusy aroma, which is the perfect scent for when you need an energy boost. The Foxglove Penis Soap smells like sweet orange and looks like some of the rainbow dildos we carry, but don’t forget — these soaps are for external use only. There is also the extra sex-positive Tulip Vulva Soap, which shows two fingers surrounding a clitoral hood and smells like delicious coconut.
We think these three would look particularly fabulous together as a bath set you could never find at the mall, but if you’re local, come on in and check them out to find your own favorite scent and design!
