#Love & Sex

Shop Story

Sex toys are not one relationship-fits-all. Some work better solo, some with a partner, and all depend on your level of comfort and tastes.


Instead of the typical “best sex toys” piece, we took our thinking one step further. From single to married, and all the relationships in between, we have identified the best sex toys according to your relationship status.


Scroll below to see where you lie, but feel free to shop from the other categories as well. A good time is guaranteed.

Le Wand Petite


No partner, no problem. Maybe you just got out of a relationship, or prefer to focus on me, myself, and I. You do you, girl! Just because you don't have a partner, doesn't mean you can't get action. The Le Wand Petite is an excellent option for solo play. It's a vibrator that has a larger surface area that features ten vibrating intensity levels with six different vibration patterns. It's splash-proof and small enough to fit in your carry-on bag for your next trip.

What Reviewers Are Saying:
I never owned a wand before because i just felt that the classic wand was too big. These petite wands are gorgeous on top of that it fits in my purse (like i stated in the title HAHA). Power wise its like a step down from the bigger wands but I'm not a person who needs crazy amount of power so it perfect. The vibration is on the deep rumbly side. Good purchase!

While this is a little pricier than most, it definitely was worth the investment! I am no stranger to kink and have used many different kinds of ties, ropes and holds. The LELO brand is such great quality, and when others left marks, scars or pain, the Boa Pleasure Tie only provided pleasure...never-ending pleasure.

Friends with Benefits

Überlube Luxury Lubricant


This relationship is strictly physical. There’s no emotional connection what-so-ever, you’re both just trying to get some and get out. For a relationship that’s no-fuss, a fast action lubricant let’s you both get down to business. Überlube is a luxury lubricant that will reduce friction and stays silky for as long as it’s in use. Once you’re finished Überlube evaporates and leaves skin moisturized, so there’s never a sticky, wet mess.

What Reviewers Are Saying:
WOW!!! We have never had to use lubricant, but thought we might give it a try for positions that are a little more uncomfortable. Holy crap. This stuff is magic. No sheet stains. No weird residue. The container is discreet. Is just an all around great product! Definitely worth the money! FIVE STARS!

Domi Mini Wand Vibrator


Long-distance sucks. While social media, FaceTime, and texting help maintain that emotional connection, the physical is lacking. Whether you’re a couple hours away or a cross-country flight from your bae, there are devices out there to help bridge the gap. The Domi Mini Wand Vibrator is a premium, dual rotating, vibrating wand that has app support. Meaning your partner can control the pleasure it delivers from anywhere, making it feel like they’re right there with you.

What Reviewers Are Saying:
You can find in-depth reviews online where the pretty much every user praise how amazing & powerful the dual-rotating head is, that they're easily willing to ignore some of the design flaws to say that this is a "must own" toy. I have to agree with them, as it only takes a few seconds to do its job for many people, yet the toy claims it can be used for 60-90 minutes continuously on a full charge. After buying this, I don't think I can go back to buying cheap shoddy wands that break in a year.

You and your partner reached the level of living together, congrats! Seeing each other all the time now gives you ample opportunities to get it on, but your sex life could start feeling less adventurous. Avoid monotony in your monogamy, and enhance the pleasure for both of you with this couple’s vibrating ring! It’s worn by him, and can be worn up or down in any position you choose. Sharing is caring, and this is a toy you both can enjoy.

What Reviewers Are Saying:
I've used Lelo's products for years and love them for solo and couple use, but have always felt had that my boyfriend has never had the opportunity to use a toy that is designed to enhance HIS pleasure. I bought him the TOR 2 as a bit of a gamble, not knowing whether he'd enjoy it, and preparing myself for the possibility that he wouldn't like it and I'd have wasted my money. I needn't have worried. We don't use it every time we have sex, but we use it often. He says it intensifies his overall experience, and, importantly, his orgasm. I'm So happy we can be both benefit from the high powered fruits of Swedish design. Money damn well spent!

Savage X Bridal Box


When you’re not off taking a dip in the ocean during your honeymoon, surprise your new spouse and bust out Savage X Fenty’s little bridal box. It comes complete with satin and lace heart-shaped pasties, a frilly garter, and tulle fabric restraints connected by a gold chain. The perfect little outfit for an activity that requires you to wear nothing at all.

What Reviewers Are Saying:
Hated everything I saw last year while wedding shopping so I opted for a cute black night shirt that had "Married" written on it. My husband knows I'm more comfortable naked anyway and I'm not really into wearing lingerie just to take it off so it did the job of being playful for the honeymoon. After subscribing to Savage X Fenty's emails the bridal box caught my eye as soon as the ad landed in my inbox. A few months later I happened to get 50% off on a wheel spin email and decided to order some stuff. While ordering a bunch of cute stuff the idea to surprise my husband on our anniversary with a newly wed/honeymoon outfit came to me. When the day came I could hardly wait to surprise him with it and surprise him I did. He loved every bit of it! This was exactly what I was looking for and I can't wait to see more pieces like it!
