There's no doubt about it: May the Fourth is one of Star Wars fans' favorite days of the year. But I grew up with the name Léa, pronounced like the Star Wars princess, and that meant a childhood of ridicule and being asked awkward questions about whether my parents thought of Star Wars while they were doing it. Such is life. But if there's one thing that can get me a little more on board with May the Fourth — and the entire Star Wars franchise — is some Star Wars-themed sex gear that will at least repay my years of torment with some awesome orgasms. And that's exactly what Lovehoney, the popular sex toy retailer, has come up with.
"Star Wars is so legendary, it’s only natural that people will see those iconic likenesses in everything — including their sex toys! Once one of the team pointed out the similarity between the Doc Johnson Stinger and a lightsaber, we couldn’t unsee it," Coco Cameron, Lovehoney’s in-house sexpert, tells Bustle. "People take sex so seriously, but it’s something that’s meant to be enjoyable and fun, so why not bring in a wand vibrator that looks a bit like one of the greatest cinematic villains of all time, or the most iconic spaceship ever?"
While the toys in the collection weren't all designed to beStar Wars sex toys initially, some them bare an uncanny resemblance to characters and props from the film. If you want to see what they've got— for you or another Star Wars fan in your life — here's the May the Fourth curated collection from Lovehoney.
