Temperatures are rising, everyone’s wearing shorter clothes, and we’ve got one thing on our minds: budgeting responsibly. Obviously we’re thinking of sex, too, but we’re halfway tempted to leave our rechargeable toys on the shelf right now. Using your air conditioning or fans runs up the electric bill, and opting for battery-operated or non-motorized toys could save a few bucks. Hey, it all counts!
Just because you want to minimize your bill, though, doesn’t mean you’re willing to minimize your pleasure. The toys on our list are both effective and economical. Below, see our guide to the most FUN sex toys for the summer months.
Sex Toys for Solo Play
BOOTIE is the butt plug that 10 out of 10 butts prefer. Its curved base sits comfortably between the cheeks, and the rounded tip nestles pleasurably against the prostate. With three sizes, this toy is a favorite among beginners and experienced plug-users alike. Try inserting it and then rocking on it to vary the sensations. Or, if you have a vulva, try using BOOTIE anally and another toy vaginally at the same time—the plug will guide your toy right to the G-spot.
With its comfy shape and discreet size, OCEAN is a perfect vibe for anytime exploration. It has a rounded tip for G-spotting or prostate stimulation, with a smaller ridge that vibrates against the clit or acts as a stopper during anal play. Though it’s battery-operated, the motor is plenty strong, with intensities ranging from a gentle purr to an intense rumble. It’s one toy to please both sensitive types and power lovers! This grab-and-go option is perfect for leaving at a second location, like a summer home or your partner’s apartment.
ABBY G is a vibrator for G-spot massage, just as its name suggests. The toy’s rounded, dramatically curved tip strokes the G-spot with the perfect amount of pressure to get your eyes rolling back. And the ripples all along the toy’s shaft massage the nerve-rich vaginal opening for even more intense internal stimulation. Better yet, this toy’s got the strongest motor of any battery-operated toy in the industry, and it can accept either AAA or rechargeable batteries.
Sex Toys for Couples’ Play
BOUNCER is like a dildo with a vibrator’s personality. It has weighted balls inside, and they bounce and roll as you move for a rumbly sensation without a motor. All that wriggly movement is super-hot when you play, because it feels super-lifelike. No wonder this toy is a fan favorite! Like all our dildos, BOUNCER plays nicely with harnesses, thanks to a thin base that lets you and your partner get close.
SHARE LITE is a double dildo that does what no other double dildo can: It stays in place without a harness! The toy’s lightweight inner core prevents it from slipping, and its adjustable hinge lets you pick the perfect angle for a secure fit. As you play, you can re-bend the hinge as you switch positions—the receiver’s end, with its G- or P-spotting tip, makes any position FUN. Plus, thanks to the long receiver’s end, every thrust feels natural.
