7 Luxury Sex Toys Worth the Splurge

As of late, the popularity of sex toys has increased for obvious reasons – cough cough Covid cough cough – and it’s no different with high-end and luxury sex toys, there are so many to choose from, but Decadent d’Vices can help you narrow down the options. This is a list of our favorite luxury sex toys that we think are definitely worth the money.

Womanizer Premium - $199

Womanizer Premium - $199

Womanizer is known for its Pleasure Air technology and is one pioneer of clitoral suction toys. The Womanizer Premium keeps that same innovative spirit being the only clitoral suction toy to have an “auto-pilot” mode that randomizes its 12 intensities among 3 levels giving a different pattern each time you use it. In addition to being waterproof, submersible, and rechargeable, it’s super quiet and has a special standby mode – it will only operate when held close to the body or moisture. When pulled away from the body the device goes into standby for 5 minutes before turning completely off, but if the user returns before that, the Premium picks up right where you left off. And not to leave out the most important part, the orgasms this thing gives are out of this world. With all that said the Womanizer Premium is definitely worth its price tag. 

Fun Factory Manta - $139

Fun Factory Manta - $139

Fun Factory brings German engineering to sex toys with their exceptionally powerful vibrators, and the Manta really shines as an alternative to traditional masturbation sleeves or cock rings. The Manta is great to use as a stroker alone or as a cock ring with a partner. Made from premium silicone, it has ridges that are perfect for holding your favorite water-based lube. The Manta takes the place of 2 toys and for $140 it’s worth the investment.

We-Vibe Chorus - $189

We-Vibe Chorus - $189

We-Vibe gave us America’s favorite couple’s vibrator with the Sync and the Chorus is even better. Like the Sync the Chorus has 2 powerful motors for clitoral and G-spot stimulation, can be worn during sex and uses Bluetooth technology via the We-Connect app allowing for control from anywhere around the world as well as creating your own patterns and sync the vibrations to music. Unlike the Sync the Chorus comes with a remote that allows you to control it with a simple squeeze. It has a flexible spine that allows for a custom fit. It can also be opened up and used as a stroke for penis wielders. The Chorus is made from premium quality silicone, is rechargeable, waterproof, and submersible. At $189, this toy will keep couples coming for a long time.

Lora Dicarlo Ose 2 - $320

Lora DiCarlo Osé 2 - $320

The improved Osé from CES winner Lora DiCarlo offers a better fit and more adjustability than its predecessor. Designed for clitoral and G-spot stimulation, Lora DiCarlo gives us top-tier technology to mimic human touch. Its G-spot massager mimics a come-hither motion and allows you to determine the length and speed of each stroke against the G-spot. While that’s impressive on its own, the clitoral stimulator really makes the Osé shine.  Designed to replicate the sensation of the mouth and tongue over the glans clitoris. It presses flat against the vulva and its smooth ridges rest within the outer labia to provide rhythmic thrumming throughout the full body of the clitoris. This new and improved version has more rumbly lows and higher highs, giving you more control. Choose from 10 intensity levels to find just the right amount of stimulation. The Osé is made from soft medical-grade silicone, rechargeable, and waterproof. It retails for $320 and for mimicking human touch it’s worth the money.

Le Wand Cordless Massager - $170

Le Wand Cordless Massager - $170

This is not the Magic Wand you’re used to.  The Le Wand Cordless Massager is in a league of its own. Not only does it combine the power of rumbly vibrations with being cord-free, but it also has 10 speeds and 20 vibration patterns making it more versatile than other massage wands on the market. It features a body-safe silicone head, flexible neck, convenient travel case, and beautifully giftable packaging. Having won Cosmopolitan’s Sexcellence Award for “Most Powerful Sex Toy,” the Le Wand Cordless Massager definitely belongs on everyone’s bedside table. 

B-Vibe Rimming Series - $145+

B-Vibe Rimming Series - $145+

From the makers of Le Wand, B-Vibe shows some care for your derriere with their Rimming series of vibrating butt plugs. Available in 3 sizes this remote-controlled device is not your average anal plug. In addition to powerful vibrations, the Rimming has an additional rotating motor that mimics the sensation of anilingus. With a remote that is effective up to 30 feet from the device, you can play home alone or out and about with a partner. All sizes are made with soft, seamless body-safe silicone and are splashproof, shower-friendly, and rechargeable.

Cosmopolitan: A Complete Beginner’s Guide to Scissoring

What Is Scissoring – All About Lesbian Scissoring

Imani Johann, owner of Decadent D’Vices also sings praises for the Jaz Motion pillow and says it can be great for accommodating all body types to further enjoy scissoring. Another tip: find a good sex toy to add to you and your partner’s pleasure. Johann recommends the Mimic+ by Clandestine Devices (a Cosmo favorite, btw) as she says it can fit in the grooves between bodies while scissoring, making it an ideal scissor-friendly toy.

Climax Courses Vol. 2 – Squirting

Text Image that reads: Decadent d'Vices Presents Climax Courses A quick start guide to getting off Vol. 2 Squirting

If you have a vulva or are into vulvas you probably have heard about Squirting. So what is it?

Squirting is the ejaculation of fluid that can occur with stimulation of the g-spot, clitoris, or both simultaneously. It comes out of the urethra and can contain urine but let’s be clear, EJACULATE IS NOT URINE. The ejaculate that comes from squirting will look, smell, and taste (if you’re into that) different from urine. Make sure to empty your bladder before play to avoid golden showers.

For most, it can feel like the urge to pee (don’t hold it when you feel it) leading to an intense release. Squirting like orgasms can feel different for different people. Discovering what makes you squirt can take trial and error as well as time and patience. Learning to squirt provides a great opportunity to get in touch with your body and discover new ways to give it pleasure.

NOT ALL SQUIRTS ARE THE SAME.

In a lot of porn, squirting can look like projectile ejaculation. For a lot of people, squirting can also look like a trickle or gush of fluid so don’t be alarmed if you don’t squirt like your favorite performer. It’s important to note that squirting and orgasming are not mutually exclusive. Some can squirt without an orgasm, some can only squirt with one, and there are plenty who fall somewhere in between. There’s no one size fits all guide to squirting, and if you find you can’t squirt after trying different methods, there’s nothing wrong with you. According to various studies, scientists say only about 10-50% of vulva owners can squirt.

Toys that can help you squirt

For those who know for sure that simultaneous g-spot and clitoral stimulation are their jam, the Womanizer Duo will definitely get your geyser going.

If you’re not as confident in what makes you squirt try something that can switch between the g-spot and clitoris like the G-spot Bullet from Je Joue.

Want to try squirting during sex? If your partner has a penis they can try a vibrating c-ring like the Mio from Je Joue.

For even more internal stimulation try a bullet vibe like the Ami by VeDo.

And if you really want to squirt like the pros a magic wand can help. The Le Wand Corded Massager packs quite the punch to get that waterfall going.

SQUIRT HACK: Wearing a butt plug, especially a vibrating one, during play can help increase the intensity of sensations on the g-spot and clitoris, making it that much easier to find your squirt. Try the Rimming Plug from B-vibe (available in 3 sizes).

Remember: Stay hydrated, pee before play, lay down a towel for easy cleanup,  and when you feel that “gotta go” urge while things are hot and heavy, relax and let it flow.

Climax Courses Vol. 1 – Anal

So you’ve decided to try anal sex.

You’ve already communicated your desire to your partner or maybe you don’t have one and want to know some of the basics. This quick guide will walk you through some things you should definitely know before burying in that booty.

 

1. Booty Hygiene

First things first, poop comes out of your butt so no matter how much you clean, you may still see some poop particles (or more) during anal sex. This is nothing to be embarrassed about, it comes with the territory. However, If this isn’t something you can live with then anal isn’t for you (and that’s ok).

Before anal, make sure your bowels are empty at least a half-hour before play and that you’ve washed your bum with soap and water. For a deeper clean you may want to do an enema (try the B-Vibe Classic Enema Bulb Set) an hour or so before play, but make sure you don’t use too much water or use water that is too hot or too cold. Those will lead to problems you don’t want during playtime.

Tip: Don’t forget to lay down a towel before getting hot and heavy, it’ll protect your sheets if things get a little messy.

2. Start Small

If you’ve never had anything in your butt before, start with fingers and work up to butt plugs. If you’d like, you can do this alone so you can get used to the sensation and move at your own pace.

Tip: Try an anal training kit. Check out the Rianne S Booty Plug Set.

3. Use Lube

Since your anus doesn’t self lubricate, lube is imperative. Without lube, tears in the rectum can happen, which can lead to infection and a very awkward trip to the doctor. Save yourself the trouble and use lube.

SPIT IS NOT A LUBRICANT.

WARNING: Stay away from lubes that will make you numb or desensitize that area. Your body sends pain signals to let you know something is wrong. If you use these kinds of products and can’t register those signals you may end up doing much more damage to your body.

Uberlube is great for anal, it’s silicone-based and will generally have more glide than a water-based lube. A little goes a long way, 2-3 pumps and you’re good to go. It’s compatible with condoms and toys that aren’t made of silicone (i.e. glass or surgical steel)

Sassy by Sliquid is a water-based lube with a thicker gel consistency that lasts longer than regular water-based lubes so it will make anal play more comfortable. It’s compatible with condoms and toys. Sliquid is great as all their products are glycerin free and won’t get sticky. But it will dry out and you will need to either add some water to reactivate it or reapply more of it.

4. Relax

This will probably be the most challenging for a lot of people. Your butt isn’t used to things going in it, so it’s natural that the initial reaction of your sphincter will be to clench up. With practice, you can make your body relax and keep your rectum from tensing up.

Tip: Make sure to have an orgasm or 2 before jumping into anal. This will help with getting your body to relax enough for anal play.

5. Warm Up

You can also make things a little easier by wearing a butt plug while having an orgasm. The pressure from the plug will intensify your orgasm and make you even more relaxed for anal. You or your partner should use plugs or fingers to gradually help lube and “open” you up. Once you’re comfortable and super turned on, proceed with penetration.

To the tops: Take your time with your partner, especially if they’re new to anal. Gradually build momentum and check-in with your partner to make sure they’re comfortable and enjoying it. If you think you need more lube, use it. Better to use a little too much lube than not enough. If your partner has a vagina, do not penetrate their vagina immediately after anal penetration. This can lead to cross-contamination and your partner could end up with a bacterial or yeast infection. Use Swipes to quickly clean up and get back to playing with your partner.
