Top 7 Sex Toys for Women, Men and Couples

Sex has always been considered to be a fundamental and sacred aspect of human nature. Some, particularly those who may have a more conservative approach to sexuality, may see the use of technology in sexual activity as ‘unorthodox’ or possibly even ‘impure’.

However, everything that we have done over the course of several centuries have been aided by the use and development of technology in various different forms. While there were still some out-dated notions that described sex as something that should only be enjoyed in its ‘purest’ form, tech pioneers simply took this as yet another challenge. 

The result? The introduction of Sex Toys. Since it’s induction into the mass market, it has been received with mixed responses; some of you are quite comfortable and regularly use sex toys, some are open to the idea of experimenting, while others may still consider it to be taboo. 

Relax, no one is throwing this on you. Whether or not you use sex toys is completely your choice.  We are merely stating the fact that the popularity of sex toys is being backed by some serious statistics. As it currently stands, the sex toy industry has a $15 billion market. It’s easy to see why this is the case; the technology became more advanced as serious research went into this market, which has now resulted in a number of different brands offering a number of different sex toys. So here we are, listing out top 7 types of sex toys that you can enjoy with your partner or use whilst flying solo.

Dildos

Most likely one of the most widely known and obvious pick for our listing, the dildo has been a long time favourite and the most popular sex toy in the market. Thanks to the clever marketing strategy of the manufactures, the dildo was projected as a sexual saviour for all single women. It is quite literally the alternative of a penis, largely made up of silicone or similar type body safe substances, in the exact same shape and size (well, everyone has preferences and the sizes vary quite drastically).  Some dildos are also equipped with vibrators. These are a total different class of sex toys and have become ultra sophisticated with the inclusion of remote controls via mobile apps.

Womanizer

Don’t go by the name, but by the way it works. It targets the very spot that can give you an immense dose of pleasure. It creates a wall of seal around the clitoris and with a controlled vacuum, creates a suction area that vibrates too. Do I need to tell you more or how it would feel? HIGH AS AF.

Pulsators

Often considered as a luxury sex toy, it always does what it states. You don’t really have to do much with it as such. This sex toy is equipped with a mechanic that provides back and forth motion for penetration. It has a vibration feature to an extended soft arm that also includes a flutter effect. So basically you get to feel the power of four i.e. thrust, pulse, vibrate and flutter. All these features can operate either individually or can be used simultaneously (if you are ready to take to the next level).

Ben Wa Balls

Surprisingly, it has been in use since 500 AD, but lately came into the mainstream when a clip from the movie ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ showed its use. It consists of two balls linked together through a nylon thread. One ball is hollow, while the other one is solid rigid. The empty ball is first inserted way back to the cervix followed by the solid ball until they touch each other. And after that, even a slight movement of thighs or hips causes a very pleasant sexual sensation. If the balls are left in the vagina for a long period of time, it does flex the muscles resulting in a more pleasant sex experience.

Anal Beads

While it may not be for everyone, there are many people who enjoy the sensation provided by anal beads. It is a continuous series of spherical beads which may or may not increase or decrease in size as you go up the length. They are usually used during sex or masturbation by inserting them into the anus. The insertion, however,  is not the ‘wow’ factor for users, but it’s the ‘pulling out’ of the beads that drives a person wild with pleasure.

Fleshlights

While many products are targeted at women, there are several for men too. As the name suggests, this toy mimics the sensation of flesh playing against the head of the penis. Like the clitoris for women, the penis head has more nerve endings than any other part of a man’s body, and so the stimulation of the head provides immense pleasure. The fleshlight provides an amazing sensation of suction along with the juicy wet flip of ‘flesh’ resembling that of a tongue, vagina or lubricated anus. To add to the charm, it is also equipped with features like vibration and strokes, depending on which products you purchase.

Sex Swings

Enough of talking about all the products for the solo artists. This toy has been specifically made for couples who like to try old / new positions in innovative ways. A flat sheet base is clamped with 4 strips / ropes, each at one corner and is hung in different directions so that a swinging frame comes into form. It enables a greater freedom of movement while having sex that also results in deeper penetration. The feeling of free flowing movement gives you a whole different experience.
