Who wouldn’t prefer a sex toy over a sweater? While there are a seemingly infinite number of toys and other erotic gifts out there, I’ve narrowed it down to five I consider top notch, all of which I proudly own, use, read and relax with.
1. Afterglow Natural Massage Oil Candle
Candles can do more than flicker prettily. This one looks lovely, and is specially designed with your back in mind. It pours into a warm liquid that you can use to give — or get — a sensual massage. Who would say no to that?
2. njoy Pure Wand
Every time I pick up my njoy Pure Wand, I feel powerful and sexy all at once. Not only will this stainless steel dildo give your kegel muscles a workout, it’s also a beautiful product that is sleek and sensual. Get some tips on using it from sex toy reviewer extraordinaire Hey Epiphora.
3. Crave Droplet Necklace
I’m a huge fan of items that multitask, and Crave’s droplet necklace more than lives up to its dual duties. It’s a stylish, beautiful piece of jewelry, along with small vibrating pendants that are discreet but powerful. There’s nothing like wearing something front and center that you know doubles as a sex toy.
4. S.E.C.R.E.T. by L. Marie Adeline
This hot erotic novel set in New Orleans is all about letting loose and living out your sexual fantasies, with a little help from a private group of naughty, wise women dedicated to making protagonist Cassie’s every wish come true. What makes it one of my favorites is its mix of all-out sexual excess with real-life concerns and drama. Give it to anyone who couldn’t make it through Fifty Shades of Grey — or who wants something with far more heart and soul.
5. Hitachi Magic Wand
I am pretty sure my life would not be complete without my Hitachi Magic Wand plug-in vibrator. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, and while it’s not glamorous or gorgeous or quiet, it’s intense and powerful and gets the job done — and it works well on your back, too. Give yourself one along with a few hours alone.
