Experts Love These 9 New Sex Toys—And You Will, Too
It's beyond time to stop feeling so skittish about sex toys. They're nothing to be embarrassed by and are a completely fun—and sometimes necessary—addition to a healthy sex life. After all, studies show that most women don't regularly orgasm from sex alone and require a little extra clitoral stimulation to get on board the "O" train. (The right positions can help you orgasm from intercourse more often, though. Try these 5 sex moves that hit your G-spot every time.) And now that you can just order a vibrator right off Amazon rather than awkwardly visit a sex shop, you have no excuse not to give one a shot.

First things first, the Fiera (9, ) isn't exactly a toy. It's actually a wearable product used to enhance arousal and desire naturally. "This is a new product focused on priming women for sexual arousal, and it's meant to be used before sex," says Debby Herbenick, PhD, a research scientist in sexual health at Indiana University and author ofThe Coregasm Workout. It works by attaching itself around the labia and clitoris to provides gentle suction and stimulation to get you in the mood.
"I love the Lelo Ora 2, a new sex toy that recreates the sensations of receiving oral sex for a woman," says Ian Kerner, PhD, author ofShe Comes First. The handheld device (9, ) has 10 different stimulation patterns so you can get pleasure in a variety of different ways—no partner necessary.
The Womanizer (9, ) comes recommended by Ava Cadell, PhD, relationship expert and founder of Loveology University, who says it's her favorite new sex toy. (Here are 4 things that happen to your vagina during sex.) "It fits around the 8,000 nerve fibers of the clitoris and provides vacuum suction and pulsating waves that can result in spontaneous orgasms," she says.
Noticing a pattern yet? Most of these toys are focused on clitoral stimulation, and the Eva (4, ) is no exception. "It's a hands-free vibrator that essentially tucks in between the inner and outer labia so you can use it hands-free. It's small, quiet, and pretty powerful," says Kait Scalisi, a sex and relationship coach.
Initially, the Iconic Wand (, ) was made to be an all-over body massager, but somewhere down the line someone thought of a different (and better) use—now it's exclusively used for stimulation a little farther south. Newbies should start here, says Scalisi. (Here are 7 things you can do right before sex to boost your bond.) "This is a great first-time wand; it's powerful but not overwhelmingly strong, easy to hold, and great to foster all types of intimacy, from back massages to sexy time," she says.
Technically, the Pulse III Duo (9, ) is a male masturbation sleeve. "It focuses on the most sensitive part of the penis and can be used while soft or hard, and it vibrates on both sides so each partner can experience pleasure," Scalisi says. And there's no need to fight over the remote: Your partner handles his stimulation using the oscillating PulsePlate on the device, while you get the control to select the vibe speed you feel from the toy's base. (Not convinced you should try a couples vibrator? This woman's experiment with her husband will change your mind.)
The Bi Stronic Fusionvibrator (9, vetoys.com) has a special pulsator so that you can "create your own personalized pulse-and-thrust combo," says Sari Cooper, a certified sex therapist.
The Loki Wave (9, ) is marketed to men, but this toy is great for you, too. "It can be used by women for clitoral and vaginal stimulation—it's a two-for-one," Cooper says.
Talk about a twofer—the Intensity (9, ) tackles women's orgasms and strengthens the pevic floor. "The Intensity actually does your Kegel exercises for you," says Emily Morse, PhD, sexologist and host of the podcastSex With Emily. And while it's expanding and contracting, it's also vibrating—so you can orgasm while you strengthen.
