Holiday Savings for Online Sex Toys

It's the holiday season, and as Thanksgiving comes and goes, the Christmas season and subsequent shopping spree will begin.



Did you know that sex toys are becoming one of the most popular gifts this year? It's true! Right around the time the economy started to fall, lipstick and sex toy sales went way up---people started buying small, economical gifts for themselves and their loved ones that they could enjoy without burning a hole in their pocket. And while sex toys are usually more expensive than lipstick, these gifts can help you create a date night where you and your loved one stay in to celebrate the holidays and go easy on your wallet.



I've been checking out sex toy and fetish websites, scouring the web for good holiday deals for my readers. Here's what I've found.



As always, I started with Babeland and Good Vibrations, because these are two stores I've worked with a lot in the past and I true. I like how both these stores are women-friendly, sex-positive stores that focus on quality products and sex education, not sleazy pornographic pictures and sky-high prices. These stores are friendly to all types: straight or gay, Christian or not, woman or man. They also have a great selection of all sorts of lubes and sex toys, although their BDSM and bondage section is pretty small, and both stores have good customer service and discreet shipping every time I use them.



Once I'd checked out the holiday deals at those stores, I checked some other stores I've used. Some were having holiday sales; some weren't. I also found some new sites that are offering holiday deals or have a particularly low price for some top-selling toys I think my readers might be interested in, such as the Hitachi Wand (the most popular sex toy ever, as far as I can tell) or the We Vibe, a new luxury toy meant to be worn during intercourse (I want it! I want it! I want it!).



Here's what I found. None of these stores has asked me to do this and I'm not getting any sort of compensation for these reviews; this is all just information I found that I wanted to share with my readers as the holidays begin.




  • Babeland is having several holiday specials. Their Black Friday Extravaganza is going on from now til 11/30, and you get a free vibrator + free shipping if you buy anything over $70. From now til Christmas, you can have free shipping on any orders of $50 or more (that's one good sex toy, so it's worth it), and if you own a blog you can also write a short post about one of their Objects of Desire that you want for Christmas (or any other holiday!) and enter a drawing. The winner will be picked on Christmas day and will receive $1,000 worth of sex toys from the store, so if you like sex toys, you might as well enter and test your luck.

  • Good Vibrations isn't having any holiday specials (yet) that I've found, but they do offer a $5-0ff coupon if you sign up for the email newsletters. This store also has a wider selection of BDSM, fetish, and bondage toys than Babeland, including several good books and some toys not only intended for beginners.

  • Eden's Fantasy is having holiday sales, including free shipping on orders over $59. They're also offering 35% off California Exotic Rabbits and 50% off on some selected toys. For cute stocking stuffers, they also have some cheap vibes and toys for under $10 on their Sale page. This store passed the important "Anal Lube Test" (meaning, like Babeland and Good Vibes, they don't sell desensitizing anal lubricants, which are dangerous for customers and indicate a store cares more about making a buck than customer safety), and Eden's Fantasy also has a decent bondage and fetish collection for sale.

  • I was really pleased to discover the online store My Pleasure. This store's webpage is neat, tidy, and classy. There are no pornographic images and customers can feel good about purchasing there. My Pleasure has an education section with loads of information about sex, toys, lubricants, and more; they also pass the Anal Lube Test. They're also having a holiday sale on several vibrators, dildos, costumes, lingerie, and other items. During the week of Thanksgiving, you can get 10% off all purchases, 15% off purchases of $75 or more, and 20% off purchases of $125 or more.

  • Xtreme Restraints is, in my opinion, not a classy, customer-friendly sex store. I really hate the online stores that show pornographic ads and seem to think sex is a dirty secret to make money on rather than a special bonding experience between two adults. Not surprisingly, they failed the Anal Lube Test. However, I felt this store was worth mentioning because it offers a wide array of BDSM toys and gear for everyone from total beginners to Masters with years of experience. Whether you want medical gear, fetish wear, costumes, head gear, chastity devices, enema supplies, mouth gags, or serious bondage equipment, this store offers it. Xtreme Restraints is also having a holiday sale and is offering free shipping on orders more than $69.

  • Sensual Sutra is another site I found that passed the Anal Lube Test and is classy and positive about sexuality. On the other hand, you can tell a lot about a store by their lubricant section, and I noticed this store didn't have a lot of quality lube (except the standards Eros and Astroglide that you find everywhere) but had a lot of flavored and sugary lubes that seemed more fit for a teenager's chapstick flavors than an adult's lubricant. This store has a few restraint items (mostly different types of handcuffs) and no big holiday product sales that I could find, although they are offering free shipping on orders more than $89.

While perusing these sites, I never found one that sold my favorite vibrator of all time, the Rabbit G, sold by Adult Toy Shoppe (that store, unfortunately, has not posted any holiday sales). If you can't decide what toy to get your loved one, I highly, highly recommend this one. Basically, it's fantastic--so fantastic I broke mine. (Oops.) Still, I use it even broken, and I long for the day I can afford a new one. This baby might be expensive, but it's well worth it--I've tried a plethora of dildos and vibrators in my time, and even other rabbit vibes, but nothing else even comes close.


Anyway, as Thanksgiving draws near, have a happy and safe holiday and start thinking about what to buy for Christmas gifts! :)
