Types of Sex Toys that Are Good for Couples
"Almost any sex toy can work for couples depending on individual needs, body parts and preferences," notes Shnaidman. "That said, there are certain toys that are designed specifically with couples in mind."
A primary category of couples sex toys, according to Shnaidman, are wearable toys. Examples of these can include vibrators designed to be worn inside the vagina during sex and vibrating cock rings that can help with maintaining erections and aid in clitoral stimulation.
"The first step is identifying what you want from your sex toys," Shnaidman explains. "The goal of a sex toy is to enhance the sexual experience! Look for a toy that provides stimulation that you know you enjoy on your own that you'd like to bring into your sex life."
Zvolerin confirms that communication is everything when it comes to incorporating and choosing sex toys to use together. "It's important that couples discuss their comfort levels with sex toys before embarking on a shopping spree. Communication is key when it comes to all things sex, whether it's a shopping budget, the size or shape of a toy or how wild a couple plans to be."
"Quality is important with sex toys, too," Zvolerin adds. "Look for materials such as silicone, glass or USB-rechargeable items over more trendy, disposable toys."

Another top-tier sex toy with Shnaidman's expert stamp of approval, this best-selling wand is incredibly innovative (so it's a solid option for beginners), works for all body types and its small size keeps it from getting in the way of partnered sex. "The Demi Wand is a favorite amongst the Bellesa community," says Shnaidman. "This petite wand is designed for all bodies, [and] while it's small enough to not get in the way with a partner, the Demi Wand certainly packs a punch."
Standout Feature: The ultra-quiet motor is nearly silent, making this a great option for those who need to be discreet.

Best Strapless Strap-On Sex Toy for Couples: Eve's Vibrating Strapless Strap-On
Strapless strap-ons are great for eliminating some of the prepwork that strap-on sex usually requires, and many also love them for alleviating gender dysphoria during sex. In lieu of finicky straps, this strap-on is held inside one's vagina via the bulbuous end, while they penetrate their partner with the longer one. Each end is equipped with motors to provide both partners with maximum pleasure.
Standout Feature: The bulbous end features raised ribs that press against the clitoris to provide the wearer with additional stimulation as they thrust.
Notable Review: "The strap systems always make me feel awkward. This had me feeling sexy and the internal vibes are so much better than a bullet [vibrator] like other strapless ones have. It is slightly hard and my partner wishes it would be a bit softer, [but it] held in me well."

This wearable vibrator is fully waterproof and can deliver ultra-quiet vibrations that can be controlled via smartphone app remotely. While the curved bulb is great for hitting the G-spot, it can be used anywhere externally—the options are limitless. This one also scored Zvolerin's coveted stamp of approval!

FAQs About Couples Sex Toys
Why Introduce Sex Toys in the Bedroom?
There are lots of reasons why couples choose to enhance their sex lives with adult toys, and different couples will benefit in different ways. Dr. Laura Berman, a sex and relationship therapist and host of The Language of Love podcast, thinks of these toys more as "sex aids," which act as a helper to complement and enhance your sex life.
According to Dr. Berman, taking this step can help deepen the passion and excitement you share with your partner. This is an advantage of using sex toys that most couples can enjoy, but it's certainly not the only pro.
Your sex life shouldn't have to take a back seat because of changes to your body or abilities. If you and your partner both want to maintain physical intimacy in your relationship, there are lots of things that can help. "In many cases, sex aids can be invaluable when it comes to issues like illness, aging and more, so it's less about a toy and more about a tool that couples can use to strengthen their intimacy," Berman explains.
Additionally, sex toys can help create a balance in the bedroom and ensure that both partners are feeling safe and satisfied. "For LGBTQIA+ couples, sex aids can play an important role in deepening pleasure as well as combating dysphoria and making the bedroom a more equitable and enjoyable place," according to Berman.
Additionally, she shares that it often takes longer for women to become aroused and reach orgasm, especially in heterosexual relationships. "Sex aids can help us overcome that gender gap and ensure both partners enjoy themselves."
How to Talk to Your Partner About Sex Toys
When broaching the subject of using sex toys with your partner, it's helpful to begin with a little reassurance. "If you want to introduce a sex aid to your bedroom, talk to your partner about why you want to try them, while still ensuring their feelings aren't wounded," says Berman.
She suggests letting your S.O. know that you love being intimate with them and want to spend more time having fun together in the bedroom before asking their thoughts on looking at a sex store or website for something that will help make things even more exciting. Dr. Berman then suggests spending your next date night cuddled up on the couch with a glass of wine perusing sex toy websites.
How to Clean Sex Toys
After each use, sex toys should always be cleaned. In a pinch, giving them a wash in warm, soapy water should be just fine. (Just be sure to pay attention to the cleaning instructions of your specific toy, as it may not be waterproof or the manufacturer recommends another method.)
However, to best clean your arsenal, the sex toy experts at Adam & Eve recommend using a cleanser specifically made for sex toys. Sex toy cleansers come in many formulas including wipes, sprays and liquid soaps, and often include antibacterial agents and other ingredients to more thoroughly wash away bacteria and better clean hard-to-reach curves, corners and materials.
