A sensible guide to sex toys
Brand #1: MyMuse
Our readers are big fans of products from MyMuse—and they stock a wide range of pleasure goodies! The biggest pluses: These products deliver exactly what they promise, the website gives clear guidelines and they even offer “discreet and door-step delivery.” Some consider MyMuse to be the “most reliable toy brand for women” in India. PS: Their male toy collection did not come highly recommended by a reader but you can check them out here if you’re curious. All their products come with a suede storage pouch, a charger and an instruction manual.
Breeze Suction Massager: This is a rechargeable clitoris stimulator which mimics the mouth with 10-speed settings. A reader said they have “the best orgasms with it” & they can guarantee it! (Price: Rs 3749)
Beat Vibrating Stroker: The Beat is a ribbed vibrating stroker for the penis which a reader describes as “discreet and comfy” and it really gets the job done. They recommend using it with lube. FYI: It comes with 10 different intensity settings. (Price: Rs 4499)
Pulse Targeted Massager: This is a compact, sleek and discreet vibrator for women with a pointed tip—recommended for excellent clitoral action by a reader who describes it as “pure pleasure.” It has 5 vibration speeds and rhythms. (Price: Rs 3999)
Brand #2: The Sangya Project
Another hit is the Sangya Project. They are known for their high-quality products—our readers also appreciate their “inclusive and respectful” approach to sexuality.
39 Plus: This is a powerful vibrator—especially recommended for partner play. It has 10 intense vibration settings, 5 pulsing settings and 5 flicking speeds. If you’re looking for simultaneous clitoral and G-spot play, this one's for you. (Price: Rs 5999)
Swirl: This is a sleek, ribbed, silicon vibrator with 10 intense vibration settings—with easy manoeuvring so you can explore penetration in different positions. A reader recommended this one for its versatility. (Price: Rs 2999)
Omega: This is a butt plug that our reader thinks is great for beginners learning the ropes of anal play. It’s made of medical-grade silicone–and comes in small and medium sizes. (Price: Rs 1400)
Tenkai Plus: This is a heating (yes, it warms up to 42 degrees at the tip) thruster with a vibrating extension—with 2 powerful thrusting speeds with 12 vibration settings on its extended arm designed for targeted clitoral play. Our splainer fam member says they own something very similar–which works very well. (Price: Rs 7999)
In solo play, I used it to find my "g spot", which is, biologically, an area not one spot btw, and that is easier when you also get simultaneous clitoral stimulation. In partner play and penetration, I just put it on my clit and voila!
Infinity Lube: Our reader recommends this because it is “vegan, unscented and lasts long.” This aloe and cucumber water-based lubricant jelly can be paired with latex products and does not disrupt the body’s natural pH level. (Price: Rs 999)
The ImBesharam is not a single brand but a go-to platform to browse a variety of brands. And it offers many products that are usually only available overseas.
Pillow Talk Racy Mini-G Spot Vibrator: Our reader loves this one because it is easy to use, cordless and “has a full range of vibration speeds to switch up” depending on their stage of orgasm. (Price: Rs 6799)
Usually, I prefer to start with a slow speed, and then later speed up towards the climax. It is my first toy and I have found it very easy to use as a beginner. It is portable and easily washable as there is no exposed charging port that will get damaged. Loved the experience overall.
Womanizer Premium Eco: This is a clitoral vibrator and stimulator—and this version is eco-friendly (recyclable by the company). Our reader found it on this website but actually purchased it abroad. This device stimulates the clitoris without even touching it—with gentle sucking sensations. (Price: Rs 37,199)
Satisfyer Curvy 3+: This is an app-controlled clitoral stimulator with little to no contact with the clitoris. It comes with 11 pressure wave intensities and 11 vibration settings. Our reader recommends this because: “It is super strong, gentle—since it's no contact, there's no abrasion on the skin. I can keep it on for long & try for multiple orgasms.” (Price: Rs 7999)
Satisfyer Yummy Sunshine G-spot Vibrator: This carved vibrator has a ribbed surface with an inclined tip—recommended as a great option for “penetration and g-spot stimulation.” The reader also says this pairs really well with the Satisfyer Curvy 3+ shown above. It offers 12 vibration programs consisting of 6 intensities and 6 vibration patterns. (Price: Rs 8299)
Njoy Pure Stainless Steel Wand: This curved dildo was described by our reader as
“one of a kind” in terms of the sensation it provides. They also said it pairs well with a clitoral vibrator like the MyMuse Pulse recommended above. This plug is super durable and designed to last for a very long time–and can be used by men and women, offering G-spot and prostate orgasms. (Price: Rs 27,999)
Tenga Egg Masturbator: One of our readers said they really enjoyed this disposable toy made for one-time use for the penis. It is recommended to use this with a water-based lube. (Price: Rs 999, and it is Rs 333 on sale)
One last option:
ThatSassyThing LIT Massager: is a suction-based massager, beginner friendly and best used in a shower–according to our subscriber: (Price: Rs 3799)
The nozzle works wonderfully on the lips. The orgasm is prolonged, and the speed settings work wonders on the nipples too.
