I, like many millennials, bought my first vibrator at a classic sex shop, complete with creepy old dude who leered at me and my friend as we perused the options. The vibe I finally settled on was blue and nubby and undoubtedly made of some scary, toxic material that I would never put near my vagina today. (To be honest, I’m not sure I even knew the difference between a vibrator and dildo at that point.) But these days? These days the experience of buying a sex toy is totally different.
If you’re lucky enough to live in a city with a feminist sex toy shop like Babeland or Good Vibrations, then you know that the in-store experience is leagues above what I went through as a teenage first-time-vibrator-buyer. And if you’re not in one of those cities, the internet has become an amazing, discreet resource for high quality sex toys. There are also more and more woman-owned sex toys companies that not only take into consideration the materials they use but also the design of the products. No creepy dudes or weird nubby blue things to be found here!
So with some amazing woman-owned companies (and some conscientious man-owned ones too) and a splash of sex tech, there are some pretty incredible options out there for our generation. From ones that order a pizza for you to ones that sync to music, here are seven toys that are peak millennial.
