Sweet Cream and Sweet Rush Vibes
These vibes are made of non-porous phthalate-free ABS plastic and have a smooth matte finish, making them sleek and smooth to the touch and easy to clean. The turn dial at the base gets these friends going, and with a smooth rumbly vibration they are powerful as they are sweet! All you need is 2 AA batteries and they’re off! Use it vaginally, use it clitorally, use it solo or with a partner — these cuties are here for it all!
Stockroom Heart Lock Collar
And while we’re talking cute and sexy — nothing says “be mine” like one of these collars, made by Stockroom in LA! To adorn a sweetie in this piece, all you have to do is unlock the nickel-plated heart lock with one of the included keys, wrap the lightweight latigo leather choker around their neck, and lock your lover in. Sleek, subtle, and sexy in appearance, and sure to send a message to all who may see it. It comes in jet black and baby pink, to fit anyone’s style, and two different sizes! Who WOULDN’T want to sport one of these darling collars?
Tease and Please Set
Who says you can’t have it all? The Tease and Please set, a collaboration by We-Vibe and Womanizer, certainly says otherwise. It includes the We-Vibe Sync, a rechargeable, wearable dual vibe that stimulates both the G-spot and the clitoris and can be worn while receiving vaginal penetration, and the Womanizer Premium, a rechargeable clitoral stimulator with 12 levels of intensity that uses pleasure flow technology to simulate a suction stimulation on the clitoris! Both come with two year warranties and incredible added features.
The We-Vibe Sync can connect to the We-Connect App, a free application that lets you pair your device to your lover’s We-Vibe. Once connected, you can control the We-Vibe from ANY distance (seriously, from different countries even), and set your own vibration patterns in fun creative ways, like setting your own vibration playlists! The Womanizer Premium comes with a smart silence feature, meaning it will only turn on when it’s in close contact with skin, so no loud, excess noise. And with a price point that saves you $100 off their retail prices, you are in for a sweet deal all around!
Fun Factory Manta
We haven’t forgotten about you, folks with penises! The Manta is one of the newest products from German company Fun Factory and is designed with everyone’s pleasure in mind. The Manta is a vibrating ergonomic penis stroker that has opened a whole world of possibilities. Its wand like handle makes it easy to hold and makes it so the vibration stays in the vibe and doesn’t numb your hand. Its manta-ray shape isn’t just meant to be aesthetically pleasing, it also enhances the power of the motor and adds motion to the vibration. Not to mention its convenient ridges on the inside of the toy’s wings, meant to help evenly distribute lubricant.
Use the Manta as a solo stroker, either moving it up and down the shaft or holding it in place at the base or head of the penis, or as a couples’ toy, using it to essentially turn the penis into a vibrator or as an assistant for oral, simulating a deep-throat sensation. The Manta is fully waterproof and comes with 6 modes of intensity and 6 patterns, as well as a 2 year warranty. What’s not to love?
