Blog: Best toys for solo play

Welcome back, Women With Vibrators Collective (WWVC)! 

As you know, we're all about putting yourself first. Self-love and self-care are the rules rather than the exception. When you're looking for a way to enhance your self-care routine, you're probably wondering which sex toy is best. The best sex toy for solo sex for women will depend greatly on what you actually want. 

Everyone likes something a little different. Also, your pleasure experience will change throughout the month based on your hormonal cycle. So, it's probably best to have a few toys in your bedside drawer to keep you busy.

Today, we'll break it down nicely and simply for you. 

How to Choose a Sex Toy

As a fabulous, fearless, and fun shop, we're not here to tell you what to do. But we will tell you a few things that can make your sex toy shopping experience easier. As you know, all sex toys are not created equal. There are a few primary questions you should ask yourself first so you can make the best possible choice:

What is your sex toy budget?

Obviously, setting a budget for yourself is going to be the first step. Otherwise, It's pretty easy to break the bank. Decide on what you're willing to spend and what would be going a bit far for you. 

For this article, we'll rank toys by this metric:

  • Super saver - $150 and below
  • Affluent but affordable - $151-$200
  • Bougie babe - $201+

All of the toys chosen deserve the price point they're given. The brands that have won these prestigious choices are body-safe, easy to use, and have great warranty programs!

What do you want to stimulate?

There's a toy for everybody, so think about your favourite way to masturbate.

Some women are looking for clitoral stimulation only.

Others want to experience a blended orgasm with some g-spot and clitoral action.

Or if you're looking for backdoor… well, you get the point.

So what do YOU want this toy to stimulate? 

For the best solo-sex toy list, we'll be ranking things by:

  • Clit-only
  • Options are open
  • Internal pleasure

It all depends on what you want from this toy! It's unlikely you'll find one toy for all areas, and even if you did, why not treat yourself?

What's your sex toy experience level?

There are some tried and true classics for you, such as the wand that never fails.

Others are fresher to the market and are sure to change your life.

There's nothing wrong with getting a classic beginner's toy. They're described that way for a reason!

You can't go wrong. 

Also, some toys are more advanced because they don't leave much room for growth, like the sucking vibrator. It's one of the most powerful sex toys on the market. If you start there, you're not leaving much room for growth.

So, we'll be ranking our favourite toys based on: 

  • Naughty newbie - this is your first or second toy
  • Educated experimenter - you've had more than two toys in the past
  • Sexy savant - you've got a full-blown collection!

We are using these ratings so that you don't get stuck with something that is a bit out of your comfort zone. We want you to make the best possible selection, so you have room to experiment!

Our Favourite Sex Toys for Masturbation

Now that you know what you're looking for, here is a little about how we chose these fabulous products.

As pleasure product experts here, we already have a good idea of what we're looking for when we recommend a product.

We chose these based on a few criteria:

  • The brand - The brand association is important to us. Some higher quality companies offer fabulous warranties, ethical manufacturing, and are gender-neutral. When we're looking for the best toys, we're talking across the board, not just in your pants.
  • Value - The price point is essential, but so is the product quality. We want you to get the most orgasms for your dollar, so we've chosen these honourable few. We know they'll bring you next-level pleasure, and you'll definitely get your money's worth.
  • Versatility - Almost all toys can be used by anybody, regardless if you were born a woman or any other gender. We value pleasure for everyone.

Now that you know what we were looking for when making this list, we hope you trust our selections!
