The Hottest Valentine's Day Gifts In 2019 Are These Super Sexy Sex Toys (Because It's All About The Props)

Share

I've been married forever, and while that generally means that we're incredibly comfortable with each other, and love spending time together, it also means that in certain areas, creativity is required to avert boredom. Creativity and sometimes, props. Sex is too much fun to allow it to fall victim to the doldrums of monotony, and sometimes that feels inevitable — but it's not. With the holiday of love just around the corner, now is the best time to be thinking about ways to spice things up. That's why I've compiled a list of the best sex toys for Valentine's Day that will be sure to heat things up.

I'm not going to suggest that you go out and buy a sex swing or go fully BDSM and get a brand new set of Indiana Jones-style whips. If that's what you're into, that's great. But consider this a more introductory set of sex toys to whet your appetite for some new, fun ways of sprucing up your bedroom routine — while of course bringing a little something extra special to your Valentine's Day activities. Also, I made sure that each of these products are still considered "safe for use," because there are a ton of sex toys on the market that aren't vetted and can contain chemicals you really don't want in or around any of your orifices. It also explains why some of them are so spendy — they're made with medical-grade silicone and rigorously tested for pleasure and safety.

And as far as the sex swing thing goes, I am not gifted in the area of balance. A sex swing for me would mean a very embarrassing trip to the emergency room. "How did you manage to both bruise your vulva and break your arm?" "Well, Doctor, stop me if you've heard this one before... " You see what I mean.

1Hot Boxes

Giphy

My favorite thing in the world right now apart from my husband and children — obviously — is my many subscriptions to monthly or quarterly boxes. I adore my Birchbox and Fabletics subscriptions to a ridiculous level. And now, there are subscription sex toy and naughty goods boxes that I am so excited about. Your Box Box, tagline "you do you," is a monthly self care box that comes with everything you need to get to know yourself a little bit better. Or a lot better. You decide.

The quarterly Bawdy Book Box is similar, but with a keener eye towards sparking fun between couples. It comes with a sexy book, accessories, and a fun new sex toy every few months. I've personally received one of these boxes, and neither myself nor my husband was disappointed with its contents. The prices range depending upon the box's contents.

2The Mona II

Lelo Mona II

Lelo

A fairly large silicone g-spot vibrator made with surgical grade materials. Rechargeable.

Any product from Lelo is going to thrill. They put a ton of time and money into each of their products and it shows. This little number is a vibrating g-spot dildo that can be used internally or externally to rev your engine. Made of high-quality silicones and polymers, this bad girl is rechargeable.

3Vibrating Cock Ring

Optimale Vibrating C Ring

Jack and Jill

Two-person pleasure is gifted with this all silicone vibrating cock ring by Optimale, designed for intense clitoral stimulation.

I get that it looks weird, but hear me out. This is not your standard cock ring. This cock ring vibrates, and has a vibrating finger that slides along the inside of the walls of your outer labia onto your vulva and clitoris during penetration. As the Collective noted, the ring itself delays the male orgasm by sitting at the base of the penis, restricting blood flow, so there's a lot more time to go each round.

4Ina Wave

Ina Wave

Lelo

A rabbit-style vibrator with g-spot and clitoral stimulation for maximum pleasure.

There is a reason this style of vibrator is so popular it was the basis for an entire episode of Sex In The City. It's just that good. The style has come a long way in the past 20 years, and Lelo's version is the best.

5Butt Plug

Curious about anal play but not sure where to start? Consider starting with a butt plug. It's like training wheels for anal sex. This plug is small, easy to use, and solid. Just remember the lube, y'all. It's your friend.

6Bullet Vibrators

I am a firm believer that everyone should have a small, travel vibrator to take on vacation. This gorgeous model has ten speeds for your pleasure, and fits in the palm of your hand.

And don't worry about TSA finding it in your bag, they've seen worse, and they probably have their own at home.

7Feathered Nipple Clamps

OK, so these are a little bondage-y, but mostly they're just fun. These befeathered nipple clamps are the perfect entre into the world of restraint and pleasure-pain. Who knows, maybe you'll strike gold and have a nipplegasm.

8Remote G-Spot Stimulator

Butterfly Remote G-Spot Stimulator

Remote controlled g-spot stimulator for naughty fun when you're least expecting it.

This is for a little vanilla kinky fun around the house — or neighborhood — whatever, I won't judge. A remote-controlled g-spot and clitoral vibrator that straps on, and operated from up to a few rooms away.

9Hitachi Magic Wand

Hitachi Magic Wand

Adam & Eve

The gold standard personal massage wand.

This is the gold standard of vibrators. It comes in wired or rechargeable, and if you don't own one already, do yourself a favor and buy it. It's life-changing.
