If you close your eyes and try to imagine the Platonic Ideal of a sex toy, you might picture your favorite rabbit vibrator or glass dildo. That’s totally fine and those are always great, reliable picks to get the kind of toe-curling results you want out of your toy collection. But if you’ve ever wanted to go a bit out-of-the-box — expanding your idea of what a sex toy can be, do and look like — there’s so many options available to broaden your horizons.
After all, sex isn’t all about penetration and orgasm (though those things are fun parts of sex for a lot of people). Sex, with a partner or solo, is about experiencing pleasure in whatever way feels right to your body. So the toy that helps you reach new heights could be with a quirky, hilarious-looking vibrator that makes you giggle, a bedroom-friendly game that expands how you and your partner play with one another or a particularly pretty set of nipple clamps. You’re really only limited by your imagination. You do you.
To help you explore just a few different toys that you might not already have, we’ve rounded up a few picks that target different erogenous zones, create different sexual moods and offer up all sorts of sensations that hands, mouths and standard vibes can’t necessarily do alone.
