The Sex Toys You Didn't Know You Needed

We're great fans of accessorizing in the bedroom. Au naturel stimulation is wonderful, but sex toys can do things that people just can't.

This also means that smart shopping can be tricky.
To help you cut through the noise, we're curating a roundup of some of our favorite picks. We've got you covered with everything from silky lube that will take both your partnered and solo play to the next level to a bullet that packs a surprising punch. Click through to browse some seriously sexy finds, and check back as we continue to add more. You might discover something you never knew you needed. Happy shopping!

Instead of thinking of your G-spot as a magical love button that will drive you wild if only you can find it, think of it as a region of sensitive tissue located on the "front" (anterior) wall of the vagina that can feel wonderful when stimulated. Ask your partner to make a "come hither" motion with his or her fingers inside you, or give this boomerang-shaped baby a whirl. Its ergonomic design makes solo G-spot adventures a cinch.
