Simply the Best: Fan Favorite and Bestseller Sex Toy Recommendations from Our Beds to Yours

Deciding on a new sex toy is a tricky process — there isn’t a fitting room or a Warby Parker digital try-on process. You can read reviews and look at product specs for as long as you like, but at the end of the day the most effective tool is a recommendation from someone you trust. That’s why we’ve assembled this list of fan favorite toys that have earned their following, either because Autostraddle staffers have put in the time and reported back favorably or because the good people buying from Eve’s Toys have voted with their dollars and made these products bestsellers (or both!). Will they be fan favorites for you too? Only one way to find out!

Magic Wand Rechargeable

5% Discount

What is there to say about the Magic Wand that hasn’t already been said by its dominance of the vibrator scene for over thirty years? We live in a world where vibrators can now sync to your favorite music, be controlled by an app by someone else across the globe via their phone, or thrust on their own inside you while you use your hands to play Pokemon GO, and yet so many of us keep coming back to the Magic Wand, because innovative technology doesn’t change the fact that it’s the best way to mainline the most intense, deliciously rumbly sensation to your genitals you can imagine. There’s nothing else that feels like the Magic Wand and there probably never will be; and because we live in the future, now you can have it without needing to be within six feet of an outlet. Will wonders never cease.

Njoy Pure Wand

The Njoy Pure Wand joins the Pure Plug as a deeply beloved and constantly recommended Autostraddle staff fave; with its dreamily hefty weight, perfect G-spot curve, and options for size and girth it’s the go-to for so many folks around here. Don’t take it from me, take it from our reviewer in 2013:

The Njoy Pure Wand has basically become my go to penetrative toy. I use it all the time. I love that it’s medical grade stainless steel so I know I can wash it with soap and water between myself and a partner and feel totally safe. I’ve been told that you can even use it to do your kegels exercises, but I’ve never gotten it all the way out of its case and into my vagina without directly proceeding to masturbation. Oh well.

The world of dildos has a special place for the Sharevibe, a toy that’s insertable for both the wearer and the recipient — some people find they can use it without a harness, many love the way that it provides sensation for both partners during penetrative sex, and it’s indisputably awesome that it can be used by and with partners of any gender. Maybe it’s time for you and an activity partner to find out why it’s on the Eve’s bestseller list!

Satisfyer Pro Plus

Suction and pressure toys are all the rage right now, and several of our staff can confirm that they’re their go-to way to see stars when they want an intense, reliable orgasm.

Once I was lucky enough to be in the room when a straight cis man saw a Rabbit for the first time, and witnessed the ensuing crisis of identity as he wondered aloud what he could offer sexually that this toy didn’t. I think it was a valuable opportunity for personal growth, and I can only imagine his take on the Thruster, a Rabbit-style toy that provides both penetrative and clitoral stimulation — and also has a shaft that moves up and down on its own, thanks to a unique thruster motor inside the insertable portion. Truly science has brought some incredible things into our world!
