We’ll let you in on a secret: Any sex toy is a couples’ sex toy if you try hard enough (or just get creative enough). And with the holidays coming up, you've got a great excuse to get busy in bed. However, there are a slew of handy tools that work best when it comes to the business of pleasuring you both.

I'm Curious, But Don't Know How to Bring Up Sex Toys with My Partner

You might be surprised at how receptive your partner is to experimenting with a toy since lots of couples are using sex toys to enhance their experience and communication. Sex toy maker We-Vibe conducted a study of 1,000 men and women between the ages of 35 and 55 and found that 49 percent of couples that use vibrators together report communicating often, whether about sex toys or other topics. Added bonus: There's evidence that using toys together increases couples' ease with giving and getting direction from their partner in bed.

According to sex education experts, a neutral way to bring up sex toys is to mention a film or television show and ask, "what did you think about that scene in Broad City where Ilana...." Soumyadip Rakshit, founder of British sexual wellness firm MysteryVibe, suggests you "ease partners into the conversation about sex toys by sharing well-researched articles, especially in reputable outlets." Or you can simply say: "I was thinking about trying this toy with you and wanted to know what you thought." Anything that keeps the focus on mutual pleasure and playful curiosity is a great way to introduce toys in general or a specific one. And feel free to cite the pandemic: Toy sales have been up since lockdown started, and couples are getting creative.

The Best Couples' Sex Toys at a Glance

Remember when we said that any sex toy is a couples' sex toy? Well, that's true; the sky is the limit. From goddess pleasure balls to vibrators and handcuffs, all types of toys are available for literally every kind of couple. But truth is, only you and your partner know what's actually best for you, considering each other's comfort levels and limitations. So with that in mind, here are the best 28 toys for all kinds of intimate thrills for beginners to sexperts.

Lelo

1. Lelo Tor 2 Couples' Ring

Best Overall Couples' Sex Toy

This matte green body-safe silicone ring fits over the penis, and has six speeds from a faint murmur to a strong pulse. It's meant to give pleasure to both partners, since the vibrating part stimulates the wearer and the partner. As one user writes: "My wife loves the many vibrations. Helps me maintain longer erections. Best yet, my wife loves the big Os." Oh, and it's waterproof and rechargeable.

2. Zumio X

Best Rotation Feature for Couples

"I am no stranger to high-end toys but the Zumio X is an absolute game changer—solo and especially with a partner," writes one user, who describes having intensified orgasms with it. This slender device uses rotation instead of the vibration that most handheld toys offer, resulting in more pinpointed stimulation. A small rotating head massages massage the clitoris, with eight speeds to choose from.

You are sure to find the right combination(s) for yourself and your partner."

7. We-Vibe Moxie

Best App-Controlled Couples' Sex Toy

For what's either a hot sexy time or the set-up for a sketch comedy routine (or perhaps both), we nominate the WeVibe Moxie remote and app control wearable clitoral panty vibrator. It's a 3.5-inch by 3-inch super skinny vibrator that fastens to your underwear via a super strong magnet, and a handheld remote that controls the speed and intensity of vibrations. And—this is the prestige, if you will—the panty vibrator can also be controlled via Bluetooth app from anywhere.

Best Hands-Free Couples' Sex Toy

Made to be worn by a female, the Eva II is perfect for clitoral arousal during sex. It also features a hands-free design (the two wings can be tucked under the labia to stay in place), so you two can use those hands for...other stuff. Or, if you prefer, your partner can keep it still using only one finger. P.S. It’s also waterproof.

9. MysteryVibe Crescendo

Most Bendable Couples' Sex Toy

This bendable vibrator lets you indulge in a combination of old school creativity (you and your partner can bend it to whatever shape you want) and new tech gadgetry (there are six motors down the length of it controlled by an app with pre-set motions or your own sequencing). Clitoral, G-spot and perineum stimulation is all part of its tricks; there are so many, the makers came out with a deck of cards so you can collect all the sensations.

10. Dominix Deluxe Blindfold

Best Blindfold for Couples

Blindfolds are great for building tension and teasing your partner. This lightly padded one is a better option than the many flimsy versions on the market, and it has a buckle that keeps it in position far better than the satiny, slippery ribbons on other masks.

15. 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Inner Goddess Pleasure Balls

Best Kegel Balls for Couples

We learned what these are about in that literary trilogy about that fun couple Anastasia and Christian, when he turned her on to silver balls to slip inside her and walk around to discreetly tease her while building her pelvic floor. As Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James writes: "I flush from the constant movement of the silver balls. They weigh down inside me, massaging me internally and make me needy, needy for sex." Each of these weigh just under 4 ounces, and one reviewer reports, "I think these are some of the heavier balls available which is more of a challenge and more sensational for the wearer." It's the secret that it's inside that will help increase the sexy tension between you and your partner until they're taken out.

Lightly padded diamond-stitched vegan leather, in basic black, complements the classic design of this paddle.

This device has two silicone wings that wrap around a man's penis, with ridges along the inside of the wings to hold lubricant in place for added sensation.

23. Lora Dicarlo Filare

Best Couples' Sex Toy for Her

This little palm-sized device is meant to give women a new experience of oral sex, with little metal balls under the smooth silicone surface rising and falling to mimic a tireless tongue.

26. Le Wand Vibrating Massager

Best Massager Couples' Sex Toy

Remember that episode of Sex and City when Samantha's "neck" massager died at the worst possible moment? Well, we took two lessons from that: Massagers can be actual sex toys, and cordless and rechargeable ones are an absolute must. This one is ideal for couples experiencing sex toys for the first time. It's effortless to use: All you or your partner needs to do is use it on your erogenous zones. And it has a flexible neck and 20 vibration patterns to match your comfort level.
