When it comes to spicing things up, only you and your partner know what’s best. But if you’re in need of a few recommendations to help you take your sex lives to the next level, we’ve got you covered with these adventurous sex toys.
The best adventurous sex toys to try
1. Chastity Cage
A male chastity cage, also known as a cock cage, is a device designed to “lock” the user’s penis inside. The cage prevents the wearer from getting a full erection— which means masturbation and sex are a no-go. Chastity cages are used as a part of orgasm denial, humiliation, and/or submission.
When purchasing a chastity cage, it’s important to pay attention to the wearer’s penis size, scrotal circumference, and sexual stimulation tolerance level. Otherwise, things could get a bit uncomfortable (in a bad way). You should also buy from a reputable retailer. We recommend browsing Lock the Cock to find the right cage for you and/or your partner Pro tip: Keep a spare key somewhere safe, just in case of an emergency!
2. Cock Ring
If owning a cock cage sounds too intimidating (we get it!), you or your partner could try wearing a cock ring. Cock rings are designed to make your steamy sex sessions last even longer by preventing blood from flowing back down into the penis. Cock rings can also be used during foreplay (hand jobs, oral sex, etc.) or during solo masturbation. A few of our favorites include the DOMINIX Deluxe 1.9-Inch Stainless Steel Donut Cock Ring and the Lovehoney Wowzer 7 Function Double Cock Ring and Vibrating Butt Plug.
“Cock rings are one of the best-shared toys for couples with a penis involved,” says Cay L. Crow, LPC, and AASECT-certified sex therapist. “The cock ring is made of pliant material that slips onto the shaft of the penis,” adds Crow. “Many men enjoy the sensation of a cock ring at the base of the penis. Some cock rings encase the testicles as well, some vibrate, some are weighted; the options are endless.”
The Ohnut isn’t exactly a toy, but it will definitely help take your sex level from “No” to “Oh!” in a matter of minutes. The Ohnut is an intimate wearable designed to help individuals who experience pelvic pain and painful intercourse get their sex lives back on the right track. It’s made of four body-safe interlocking rings and acts as a barrier, allowing the user to control the depth of penetration—either with a partner or sex toy.
To use this wearable, place the interlocking rings (however many you’d like) onto the shaft of the penetrating partner, and then proceed to have sex as you normally would. Remember to use lube; Ohnuts cannot be used without it!
4. Sex Swing
Purchasing a sex swing is one way to pull off those seemingly impossible acrobatic positions without harming yourself or your partner — talk about adventurous sex toys! Sex swings come in a variety of styles; some hang from the ceiling, while others attach to the door frame. If you’ve got space to spare, you can purchase a freestanding sex swing. For many, a sex swing may seem a bit “extra,” but the mobility factor makes these novelty items a must-try in our book. Just think of how much easier positions like the Wheelbarrow and Raised Doggy will be once you or your partner is suspended in mid-air!
“If you’re a couple who wants to bring your pleasure to orgasmic heights, you can try investing in sex swings,” says Dainis Graveris, a certified sex educator and relationship expert at SexualAlpha. “My go-to sex swing is Screamer’s Dual Hook Sex Swing. This dual-hook sex swing distributes your weight between two mounting points, so you feel safe as you’re getting into sexy swinging action.”
5. Sex Wedge
Speaking of sexy positions, if you’re not quite ready to invest in a sex swing, start small with a sex wedge. A sex wedge is a pillow that’s strategically designed to help you recreate your wildest fantasies in real life sans backache. Sex wedges come in a variety of shapes (including square, rectangular, and abstract shapes) and sizes, but most are small, triangle-shaped pillows.
Using a sex wedge may feel awkward at first, but once you get the hang of it a sex wedge can be used to discover new angles and positions, up your oral sex game, and heighten your pleasure and sexual gratification. Interested in giving it a try? Check out Liberator!
6. Vibrating Butt Plug
If you’re interested in spicing up your sex life, consider buying a vibrating butt plug. For many, butt plugs create the delicious feeling of fullness (or of being filled). For those with a prostate, the right butt plug has the ability to reach and pleasure the P-spot. Add a bit of vibration to it, and you’ve got yourself a one-way ticket to Orgasm Ville! If you’re new to anal, however, you may want to consider a small, slim model.
“You can get wearable vibrators if discreet public play is what you’re into,” says Graveris. “For vagina owners, there’s the Lovense Lush 3; the largest bulb slips inside your vagina and stays in place,” adds Graveris. “If you’re a penis-having couple, you can also try the Lovense Hush. It’s a discreet vibrating butt plug that stays comfortable and inside your anal canal while you’re out and about and being naughty.”
