And if that doesn't bring you pleasure, we don't know what will!

Below, shop 5 sexual wellness queer-owned businesses that not only welcome but embrace your authentic, pleasure-seeking self.

Unbound Babes

  • The FYI: With more than half of the Unbound Babes team identifying as part of the LGBTQIA+ community, this queer-operated sex toy shop offers an inclusive selection of products that are worthy of an Instagram ad. From vibrators to dildos to vibrating anal plugs, their aesthetically pleasing, candy-colored curation feels delightfully fun; while browsing their welcoming site is just like shopping with your besties.

  • Product Spotlight: With two vibrant color options, the Clutch is a rabbit vibrator that delivers thrusting vibrations to the G-spot and clitoris simultaneously. (There's over 120 possible vibration combinations to choose from, BTW.) The ergonomic triangular handle is also thoughtfully designed to be used both solo or with a partner, and has also been found to be useful by those with disabilities.


  • The FYI: Babeland got its start back in 1993 when co-founders Rachel Venning and Claire Cavanah became fed up with the lack of female-operated and LGBTQIA+-welcoming sex shops in Seattle, Washington. Since that first brick-and-motor store, the brand has continued to expand and grow, offering a seemingly endless selection of sexual wellness products and toys. Think: BDSM gear and fetish accessories, lube, lingerie, penis toys and male masturbators, plus all the classics (vibrators, dildos and more).

  • Product Spotlight: For people with penises, this uniquely shaped vibe might just be a game-changer. With six intensity levels and patterns, the vibrating silicone wings are contoured to encircle the penis for targeted pleasure and added intensity to oral sex, penetration or a solo session.


  • The FYI: According to Lorals, oral sex is three times more likely than intercourse to lead to orgasms for people with vulvas—and that's where the brand's spotlight product comes in. In lieu of dental dams, Lorals are FDA-cleared, wearable STI protection for safer oral sex, rimming and skin-to-skin contact.

  • Product Spotlight: Crafted from premium-quality vegan latex, these single-use sheer panties can be used for wearable and convenient protection from STIs and bodily fluids, while allowing for maximum sensation and visual stimulation.

Cute Little Fuckers

  • The FYI: This multi-hyphen (queer-owned, trans-owned, disabled-owned) company aims to provide toys and products for all bodies, gender experiences and physical abilities. Their kitschy selection of sex toys are inclusive and fun (read: unintimidating). And the company even offers a low-income toy program that helps make their sex toys financially accessible to all.

  • Product Spotlight: Courtesy of its wide surface area and easy-to-grip design, this vibrator is fit for a wide range of bodies and abilities. With five vibrational speeds, waterproof capabilities and soft silicone feel, this cute little vibe can go anywhere, pleasuring any and all engerous zones. Plus, as the brand notes, it can be used to both simultaneously cover and stimulate dysphoric areas of the body.

Wet For Her

  • The FYI: Originally created by lesbians for lesbians, this retailer offers a wide range of sex toys and products for queer couples and individuals. With an impressive variety of dildos, double dildos and strap-on harnesses (plus all the other essentials like vibrators, massage oil and lube), this gets-right-to-it site has you covered no matter what it is you're looking for.

  • Product Spotlight: Instead of finicky straps, this strapless strap-on is held inside one's vagina via the bulbuous end, while the opposite end is used to penetrate a partner. A multi-speed, USB-rechargeable bullet vibrator is sneakily hidden inside the dildo to deliver leg-shaking stimualtion to both parties.
