Women’s Guide to Sex Toys

These days, there are thousands of sex toys available and lots of different ways to enjoy them. It might seem daunting to find the best sex toy for you, so our Women’s Sex Toy Guide is here to help. First things first – decide what sort of stimulation you like best and select a type of toy based on the headings below. From there, you can pick the right size, material and brand for you.

If you’re not sure or have never used a sex toy before, we’d recommend that most women start with a Clitoral Vibrator.

Clitoral Stimulation

Generally speaking, the easiest and most effective way for most women to achieve orgasm is via direct clitoral stimulation. The clitoris contains at least 8,000 nerve endings, making it exquisitely sensitive to any touch. Clitoral Vibrators are a great way to repeatedly and rhythmically stimulate all these nerves without having to concentrate on maintaining a fast or hard pace with your hands. By letting a vibrator do the hard work, you’re giving yourself a chance to just lie back and enjoy the sensations. One of the most popular types of Clitoral Vibrator is the Bullet Vibrator – shaped like its namesake and discreet enough to slip into a handbag or bedside drawer. Plus, the small shape makes Bullets perfect for using with a partner as they’re unobtrusive but enhance your pleasure massively.

Vaginal Stimulation

Vaginal penetration is intimate and uniquely satisfying; insertable toys like Dildos and Rabbit Vibrators cater to that desire. Made famous in the late 90’s by Sex And The City, the Rabbit Vibrator combines clitoral stimulation, vaginal penetration and powerful vibrations into a single toy.

The Rabbit part comes from the distinctive shape of the clitoral stimulator on many of the models.

Many women find this blend of stimulations very effective for intensely pleasurable orgasms. If you only want internal vaginal stimulation by itself, Dildos are the perfect toy for you. Available in a huge range of sizes, colours and designs, many are shaped like a realistic penis but non-anatomical phallic dildos are also available. The best part about a dildo is that you have full control of the depth, speed and intensity of the thrusting. Plus, many dildos also have a suction cup base so you can place it on a smooth surface and enjoy hands-free riding! G-Spot Stimulation It may be a little tricky to pinpoint and not every woman is a fan of its stimulation, but the G-Spot is beloved by some women for the incredible full-body orgasms it can produce. Located 1 to 3 inches inside the vagina on the front wall (towards your belly button), the G-Spot is a cluster of nerve endings that feels slightly bumpy to the touch.

G-Spot Vibrators are generally curved to reach this spot; when done correctly, some women can even ejaculate from G-Spot stimulation!

Any toy with a distinctive curve will be suited for trying G-Spot play. We stock lots of different designs including rabbits and other dual vibrators that also include clitoral vibrations.

Love Eggs

There are two types of Love Eggs within the sex toy world. Vibrating Love Eggs, which provide automatic stimulation, can be inserted into the vagina or used for clitoral stimulation. They are controlled by a wired or wireless remote. These eggs are great fun with a partner – especially if you give them control of the vibrations. The other type of Love Eggs might also be known as Ben Wa Balls, Kegel Balls, Love Balls or Jiggle Balls – don’t worry, it’s all the same thing! Designed for both pleasure and exercise, Love Balls sit inside the vagina and have smaller, heavier internal balls that roll around and knock as you move. This knocking movement causes the vaginal muscles to contract and work out your pelvic floor. Plus, it feels great!

Nipple Play

Usually stimulated to enhance other orgasmic sensations, nipples can be incredibly sensitive. Nipple Toys will help to make the most of this erotic body part. Suckers, ties and clamps all add a delicious hint of pain to your play for extra arousal.

Anal Play Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!

Anal play produces sensations you can’t replicate on any other part of the body, so it’s definitely worth exploring. Anal Toys should always have a flared base to prevent the toy from being inserted too far. Anal Toys can take the form of straight-forward insertable anal dildos and anal beads or may have powerful vibrations that intensify the sensations. They should also be used with lots of water-based or silicone lube. If you’re new to Anal play, you might want to start with something small and simple like anal beads or a slim Butt Plug.
