One of the perks of being a sex and relationships writer is getting to try new sex toys. It's also a perk I take very seriously. There's no lengths I won't go to to make sure I've tried every sex toy that comes my way and multiple times — different angles, different positions, different places — you name it. I've done it all in the name of science and a deep love for my job, of course.
Since November 4 is National Sex Toy Day, it's the perfect time to reflect on what I've tried — and loved. Although the year isn't over yet, I've tried 43 sex toys since January. Of those toys, I've managed it narrow it down to nine that I can't (read: refuse) to live without.
It was these toys that produced the best orgasms in a limited amount of time, were easiest to use, and just felt good, from an ergonomic perspective. I don't like to take a lot of time to climax, because I want to climax multiple times consecutively. Not all toys can deliver such a thrill. From vibrators, to dildos, to anal beads, I've given every one an opportunity to woo me. Here are the nine that made the cut.
