If you’re lucky enough to be quarantining with a partner during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s a perfect opportunity to try a few sex toys. The best sex toys for couples, in particular, will bring some hot sauce to your stuck-indoors sex life. (And if you’re looking for some solo sex toys, we’ve got you covered there, too.)
That you’ve landed here means you’ve blessedly evolved beyond the dusty, misguided notion that even the best sex toys for couples somehow mark you (or your sex life) as deficient. This is good. Even if your between-the-sheets time needs a kick-start, there’s exactly zero shame bundled into using these products. (And if you’re a first-timer looking for some rookie tips, we’ve got a helpful guide for getting into sex toys.)
Here’s why you should care about bringing sex toys into the bedroom, even if everything’s [mind-exploding emoji]: because she’ll enjoy herself more. A 2017 study noted that 37 percent of women need clitoral stimulation (and not just penetration) to reach the summit of Mt. Orgasm. Adding a vibrator to the mix proves you know how the female body works, and that you’re as turned on by her pleasure as you are by her body. It proves you’re confident, and adventurous, and an all-around thoughtful sex-haver.
(And if all this sounds more hetero than you’re looking for, check out our roundup of the best sex toys for men.)
You’ll notice below that, in one of the rare moments where men’s needs are often ignored, penises are radically underserved when it comes to couples’ toys. Most of the best sex toys for couples have clitorises in mind, or incorporate some anal play (try it!). They’re available with speedy and discreet shipping from companies like Amazon and specialty retailers like Babeland and Lovehoney. Check out a variety of tested-and-proven toys—from vibrators that double as high-end jewelry to prostate pleasurers—and give your bedroom the gift of some truly ear-shattering orgasms.

The Best Mildly Kinky Sex Toy for Couples: the Wartenberg Wheel
If you and your partner are interested in making foreplay a little more interesting, or dabbling in some light BDSM, the infamous Wartenberg Wheel is the perfect (and affordable) start. It’s a real medical device—neurologist Robert Wartenberg (1887–1956) designed the wheel to test nerve reactions. But naturally, the kink community took it over upon realizing how good it felt on erogenous zones. For those interested in medical play, the lab coat is not included.
The Best Sex Toy for New Angles: Liberator Whirl
Missionary goes from plain vanilla to extra sprinkles on top with the right sex pillow.

Not only did Lora DiCarlo manage to make a sex toy that works on all genders and genitals, but this must-have warms up above body temperature, adding an extra element of coziness. So whether you have a G-spot and clitoris or the P-spot and perineum, stick it in and relax, baby.
The Best Sex Toy with a Sense of Humor: Clone-A-Willy
If the name “Clone-A-Willy” makes you laugh, good! You have a pulse. It’s completely ridiculous and nothing but fun, so if you want to give this as a gag gift, by all means. But it actually does a pretty good job cloning a willy. Think of all the doors (and orifices) that will open. This stuff is supposed to be fun, remember?
