As you know, folks are spending a lot of time indoors nowadays, and as we on the R29 Shopping Team have astutely noticed,
sex toy sales are up — way up. And we get it. Climaxing as a way to relieve some stress during this uncertain time is healthy, so party on.
In the spirit of presenting you with the very best items to shop 365 days a year (but especially during a time where all things self-love and self-care have never felt more essential), we asked some of the top
sex toy brands and retailers to share their bestselling vibes, plugs, and more. From the tried-and-true favorites that will always be top of the charts — i.e. the Womanizer and the Rabbit — to more experimental options, here are 2020's current bestsellers worth paying up to full price for.
