Buying sex toys used to be an unpleasant experience, where you either had to wait and hope until one of your friends or acquaintances held an insufferable “passion party” (where they sold sex toys like Tupperware), or go to a back-alley brick and mortar “adult” store where everyone seemed embarrassed to be there, and everything was covered in a weird film. Thankfully, the internet has revolutionized the way people buy sex toys, but they’re also becoming more widely available in drugstore and big box stores as well, making them easy to grab when you’re already there to pick up some shampoo.
Here are six over-the-counter sex toys that are ready and available whenever you are for under $20:
LifeStyles a:muse His & Hers Pleasure Massagers Kit
This massager kit has something for everyone, with a multi-speed vibrating ring great for a penis, and multi-speed finger massager for someone with a vagina. The raised studs on the ring and textured surface of the finger massager add increased pleasure for both partners. Both massagers feature three different intensities, up to 35 minutes of vibration, are water resistant and easy to clean, and yes: batteries are included.

Trojan Hot Spot Vibrating Ring
More than your run-of-the-mill cock ring, this one from Trojan can also be used to pinpoint other spots that might enjoy some vibrations, like the clitoris. It lasts up to 20 minutes at a time and can be used with or without a condom.

Swiss Navy Flexy Massager
This “massager” — aka vibrator — is a good option for a beginner. The flexible head isn’t too big, is made of body-safe silicone and has 10 modes so you can see what works best for you. It’s also designed to target the G-spot. Use it with or without a partner.
