What are good sex toys for use by fat or disabled folks? What’s a good dildo that stimulates your clit? Which is the best beginner vibrator? Archie covers all this and more in this video workshop!
This month, Archie Bongiovanni is bringing you their years of experience at Minneapolis indie sex shop Smitten Kitten to talk you through everything about choosing, buying and using sex toys as a queer person.
“I picked up the tentacle attachment and clicked it into place. For a moment, nothing happened – then, the tip began to move, seeking out something to touch, and the entire shaft lit up with sensation.”
The Osé got a makeover and is now the The Osé 2 – a dual-stimulating vibrator meant to “mimic the best kinds of human touch.”
Wet For Her has everything for you and your boo this Valentine’s Day weekend, from shared vibrators to harness-compatible dildos to boxer brief harnesses to use with them — and they’re making sure to get everything to you before the big day if you order before February 7th!
And what kind of toy are you bringing? 👀
Wet For Her has plenty of toys that can take your partnered sex to the next level, but they also have lots that are fantastic for solo play — here are 9 under $50 and $75!
When you first look at the Hidden Pleasure Bullet, it looks like your standard “hidden” toy vibrator. I’ve had a few in the past, and specifically use them for when I’m traveling. I have quite a collection of sex toys, but not all of them are able to be packed up when I’m visiting home, for example. This one was something I can throw in my bag, will hopefully get me off when I need it, and that won’t shock my mother should she find it while inevitably going through my things.
These three Autostraddle writers tried out Baci, a “premium robotic clitoral massager” by Lora DiCarlo that’s meant to mimic oral sex. Here’s how our clits are doing now!
Today, toys are less about a harder better faster stronger version of more of the same, and all about the different ways it’s possible to experience pleasure and sensation.
It’s time to normalize giving sex toys as gifts, and not just to partners. Everyone’s stuck at home anyway!
There is, of course, no such thing as a perfect or universal dildo. However, if we were, for a moment, to pretend that there is a most-likely-to-fit-your-needs dildo for most folks who are interested in one, the Magnum really might be it.
I had heard excellent things: that it was impressively “rumbly” despite its small size, and that it could even work with a harness. High expectations, but I gamely forged on anyway. And found that, in fact… these are all pretty much true? The WeVibe Touch is a very good vibrator.
You might call yourself a “top” or a “bottom” or a “sub,” but there’s a whole lot more to who you are between the sheets. Take this quiz to find your queer sex persona and the perfect toy to suit your sexual spirit – plus a 15% off discount code inside!
“Oh my god, I just remembered — I put Starsi on my crotch and my partner straddled me and it honestly felt like I was an alien and we ALMOST kind of did role play?? Even though we’re NOT into that. But I was like, what if you got abducted and had sex with the alien and they had vibrating genitals!!!”
Let us be thankful, today and all days, for butts. The possibilities for butt play and pleasure seem almost endless — not only inside, but also outside!

Check out these better butt plugs and toys for Butt Week! Our picks come in confetti, hardwood, stainless steel, tie dye (!) and more.
“Nothing, and I mean nothing, feels as nice as stainless steel on your asshole.”
“Looking for a baby who wants to be pleasured and punished in the most loving of ways. I may look adorable, but I’m quite powerful and will make you shake with joy or fear – if you behave you get to choose.”
As we stock up on toys and lube for winter, we can put our queer money back into queer-owned sex shops!
