5 of the Best Sex Toys for Solo Sex in 2021

A fun addition to masturbation (or sex with someone else) can be incorporating a vibrator or other sex toy into your sex life.

If you've never used a vibrator solo or with a partner, you aren't alone. Many people in a relationship are hesitant to use toys alone because they think their partner should be the one to give them orgasms. Masturbating in a relationship does not mean your partner is not satisfying you, and you don't have to reserve sex toys for steamy nights with your significant other. Sex toys open us up to a range of sensations that you just can't experience with your hands or with a partner. It's a great way to figure out what you like. Then you can better tell your partner what makes you feel good.

It can also be a little intimidating to find a perfect toy for your lifestyle, especially since there are so many on the market. Luckily we've already done the legwork for you. A few were personally tested and tried, while others were researched and evaluated based on reviews. Below are some recommendations for the best sex toys for masturbating solo.

U.K. singing superstar Lily Allen revealed in 2018 that she was a wild fan of Womanizer. This resulted in a collaboration and a vibrant special edition of the raved-about Liberty. Its bright colors radiate good vibes, and the device packs a lot of power, making this Liberty even more exciting as a bedroom companion.

What makes Liberty, and all Womanizer products, so unique is something called Pleasure Air Technology. ​Why is it so special? Its pulsing air allows the clitoris to be stimulated without direct contact. Gentle air vibrations suck and massage in rhythm to provide an unprecedented feeling leading to orgasm.

It's waterproof, so you can transition from the bedroom to the bath with no worries at all. Because every body is different, two sizes of heads are included to make sure you can get the stimulation and fit that feels best for you.
