1. Bondage Tape
"A little bonding tape goes a long way in stimulating sexual creativity and inspiring couples to enjoy some playful submission and domination."
—Ian Kerner, Ph.D, sex and relationship counselor, and author of books including: She Comes First; Passionista; Be Honest, You're Not That Into Him Either and D.S.I. Date Scene Investigation.
2. We Vibe 4 Plus
"The We Vibe is this year's dream date for couples. It's a C-shaped vibrator that fits over a woman's pubis, simultaneously stimulating the clitoris and the G-spot, yet leaving enough room for penetration. That spells hands-free orgasmic bliss for both partners—something the sex toy industry has been working toward for years. We were skeptical at first, but the We Vibe has received enough rave reviews that we're convinced that it's the best toy for the couple that wants to 'come together.'"
—Claire Cavanah, Co-founder of Babeland and co-author of Sex Toys 101.
3. Iconic Ring
"Perfect for clitoral stimulation during penetration is the vibrating ring: he wears it, and she gets buzzed in the right spot. Especially excellent for woman-on-top positions. JimmyJane has the best one on
the market, made from hygienic body-safe material, and is tastefully designed and packaged."
—Violet Blue, Sex columnist for The San Francisco Chronicle and award-winning author and editor of over two dozen books on sexual health and erotica.
4. Mini Whip
"While I wouldn't recommend buying 'dress up clothes' from sex shops for role-play (they're usually badly made and overpriced), you could throw in a few props. Whips and riding crops aren't half as threatening as they sound and spanking is a safe but sexy way to "kink" things up without feeling like complete deviants."
—Tracey Cox is the author of The Sex Doctor and the relationships columnist for London's Guardian newspaper.

5. Lelo Nea
"People are buying products that are not phallic-like. A vibrator for a man is just as pleasurable as it is for a woman [and] the pebbles aren't as threatening."
—Liz Lord, Madame Rouge sex toy vendor.
6. Share Dildo
"The angling and shape of this toy make it perfect for the female anatomy. This is the great thing about the Share double dildo, you get actual feedback because you wear it internally, unlike a strap-on. For the price this is the most perfect girl/girl or boy/girl toy to experiment with."
—Suze, Buzz Club sex toy reviewer
