It seems like every day, there’s a new sex toy coming out. What’s just a trend, and what becomes a treasured staple in bedside drawers? The most popular sex toys can set the latter apart.
The variety of sex toys people like is greater than one might assume and often goes beyond your standard vibrator, says Good Vibrations staff sexologist Carol Queen. “Vibrators, dildos, harnesses, and bondage gear are all in our top-selling list, and that’s also no surprise,” she explains. “Longtime customers love them, and new customers are curious about what they can add to their sex lives. Dildos and vibrators are especially great for exploring the possibility of genital pleasure and orgasm.”
“When it comes to picking out a sex toy, every body’s body—and the way they experience pleasure—is different, which is why there’s such a vast array of choices out there,” says Babeland brand manager and sex educator Lisa Finn. Generally though, she says, people tend to like sexual-wellness toys that are versatile, discrete, and high-tech. (A good lube always helps, too.)
Here are some toys that various brands and retailers count among their most popular sex toys—and the reasons customers love them.
