There's nothing sadder than when the summer ends. But there's also nothing better than cheering ourselves up with a new purchase. Thanks to Labor Day, businesses and companies of all types turn on the sales and discounts, before we officially switch over to Pumpkin Spice Latte season. Sex toy companies are no different in offering up some major Labor Day sex toy sales. Sex toys are, of course, a sex life's best friend.
"Think of sex toys as just one more 'tool' in the lovers' toolkit," Ellen Barnard, MSSW, a sex educator and counselor, tells Bustle. "In that way, they reflect the strengths and challenges of the relationship... Consider it your goal to make sex even more fun for each of you and choose toys that are likely to do that."
Sex toys also make couples communicate more, because you can't just bring a sex toy into a bedroom without discussing how it works, how you want to use it, and, in some cases, maybe even why you've just dumped a bucket of different types of butt plugs on the bed.
Whether you're buying for just yourself, for you and your partner, for your best friend, or because you're not sure how you'll get through the first semester without a new toy, here are eight places where you can find Labor Day sex toy deals.
