Sex toys to keep you hot this holiday season:
Womanizer’s sleek update maintains its shiver-inducing “suction” sensation (created by air pressure and gentle vibration) and now includes two new features to level up your sexy time: First off, the Womanizer Premium uses “Smart Silence” to detect when to turn on and off. As the toy touches skin, it turns on, and as the toy releases skin, it turns off, minimizing sound and battery usage. It also has an “Autopilot” feature, which employs 12 rhythm patterns and varying speeds to make every playtime a unique experience.
Pro-tip: Got a penis in the room? Try placing the womanizer on the frenulum—the underside of the penile head.
Calexotic’s newest line of dual stimulators is made of bright, high-quality silicone. Each of the six vibes in the collection offer different sensation combinations, including clitoral suction, shaft rotation and extra-ribbed texture.
Pro-tip: Dual stimulators can be exciting, but they also require consideration (and risk) to figure out whether the toy will hit all the right sensitive bits once inserted.These vibes may not be the best choice for a surprise gift—instead, take yourself or your boo on a sexy shopping trip! One-year warranty, waterproof, $88-$98
