The Best Sex Toys For Valentine's Day 2018
With Valentine's Day around the corner, you might be shopping for chocolates, flowers, and cards. Or, you could start shopping for sex toys — because, let's face it, that's much more fun. But what sex toys should you use with your partner on Valentine's Day?
"Using a sex toy with a partner is often a powerful way to intensify intimacy," Paula Pana of Peep Show Toys tells Bustle. "That is particularly true if it is the first time introducing a toy into a relationship. By communicating your desires and needs and then shopping for something fun together, the entire experience becomes a unique way to bond."
Personally, I view a partner's willingness to bring toys into the bedroom as a litmus test for how considerate a lover they are. Only someone who puts their own self-image above their partner's pleasure feels threatened by sex toys. The reality is, many people with vaginas need clitoral stimulation to orgasm, so their partners should accept that they may have to either focus on "foreplay" (which can really be the main event) or bring in toys during intercourse. And on Valentine's Day of all days, it's important to be thinking about each other's pleasure.
Here are a few toys to consider bringing into the bedroom on Valentine's Day to make sex more pleasurable or just spice things up.

4A Year Of Creative Games For Lovers

A couples' toys collection would not be complete without Eva, Dame Products' hands-free clitoral vibrator. It hooks between your labia, and you get extra clitoral stimulation during sex. Try the upgraded version, which is lighter and smaller.
6LELO Indulge Me Pleasure Set
If you're not sure where to start, this will spark some ideas. Along with a couples' vibrator you can wear during sex, this comes with a blindfold to make your other senses that much more intense and a feather for soft teasing.
7Lovelife Vibrating Ring
In the spirit of the occasion, this cock ring has a little heart shape at the top, so it'll provide plenty of vibration for you both.
You can put this in during sex to give you and your partner extra stimulation, or have them use the remote to pleasure you from a few feet away.
9Satisfyer Whale Partner Wearable Stimulator
The same company that brought us the touch-free clitoral suction vibrator recently released a partner toy with two motors that hit the clitoris and G-spot.
This couples' vibrator not only can be worn during sex but also can be controlled from a distance via We-Vibe's We-Connect app.
This takes a different shape from your classic couples' vibrator, with a large round head that's sure to hit your clitoris.
If you don't have a partner to test these out with, don't feel left out: They're also fun to use on your own, and they make great Galentine's Day gifts.
