Looking for an incredible deal? SheVibe is the place for you! I love them in unnatural ways and they carry a ton of good stuff, including more obscure sex toy brands — such as BS AtelierFunkit Toys, Crowned JewelsHole Punch, Lumberjill, Leaf, and New York Toy Collective — that can be hard to find in other shops. Visit my landing page for all my favorite toys in one place, and see their latest sales here.

SheVibe also has a really quite awesome manufacturer info page with warranty information for each toy company. PLUS I’m friends with the peeps behind SheVibe and they’re all badasses.

Shopping in Canada? Look no further than Come As You Are, one of Canada’s best indie sex shops with a fantastic online store for you to take advantage of! They have probably the biggest selection of Fuze toys around, along with handmade and unique products such as Lovecrafters silicone toys, Cannalife Botanicals, Sili Saddle, and Canadian-made toys, dilators, and kinky stuff. My favorite things are listed right here, and here’s their sale section.

Lovehoney: the best place for sex toy shopping overseas

Shopping overseas? I whole-heartedly recommend Lovehoney, which began in the UK but has expanded into the U.S.Canada, EUAustralia, New ZealandGermany, and France. They are fast, discreet, and well-respected, with a great return policy.

One of my newer affiliates is Peepshow Toys. I’m really into their excellent sales and curated selection; they stock a lot of my favorite things including the limited edition Splendid Piph, my two favorite Hitachi attachments, the LELO Ella, Leaf Life, and the NobEssence Seduction and Romp.

That tagline is no joke: the selection at SexToyFun (now known as Adult Shopping) is astonishing. This site carries practically everything, from very inexpensive silver bullets to high-end luxury toys. It’s a good place to go if you’re looking for a toy made by one of the big companies: California Exotic, Doc Johnson, Pipedream, Topco, etc.

I’d rather you buy from an indie sex shop, but I know Amazon’s prices are hard to resist, and sometimes you just need a Diva Cup (why?) or lube dispenser (why?), so if you must, there’s Amazon’s “Sexual Wellness” section. Just remember, companies may not honor warranties on toys bought from Amazon.

I also endorse the following shops: Pleasure Chest, She Bop, Stockroom, and Betty’s Toy Box.

Pleasure Chest  She Bop — a female friendly sex toy boutique  JT's Stockroom  Betty's Toy Box

Straight from the manufacturer:


We-Vibe is a smart company that makes effective vibrators such as the ergonomic rabbit Nova (my thoughts), versatile G-spottin’ Rave (my review), tiny but mighty Tango (my review), all-around great Touch (my review), and hands-free orgasm-inducing Pleasure Mates (my review).

Tantus, makers of lovely 100% silicone dildos and plugs, has an AMAZING closeout section. Also check the Grab Bag, where you can get highly-discounted toys in surprise (and unique!) colors. My favorite Tantus toys are the Cush O2 (my review), Echo (my review), and Ryder (my review). See more here! They even stock the Magic Wand Rechargeable and Doxy.

Crystal Delights makes gorgeous glass toys with Swarovski crystals in their bases. My favorite toys of theirs are the Crystal Twist (my review) and Star Delight (my review), but they also make beautiful butt plugs, some with fluffy animal tails, others with fantastically-colored tails.

All my faves are compiled here!

Fun Factory

Playful German company Fun Factory has been making high-quality silicone vibrators, dildos, anal toys, kegel balls, and more since 1996 — their coolest innovation being their pulsators, which thrust rather than vibrate (I loooove the Stronic G and Surf, as evidenced in my reviews of ’em), and the highly versatile Volta (the best clitoral toy they make, in my opinion).

Fun Factory’s Bootie is my all-time favorite silicone anal plug, I enjoy the odd sensations of the Bouncer and B Ball Uno, and the Tiger G5 and Big Boss G5 are impressively powerful vibrators for your money. They also make menstrual cups, which I reviewed here.

New York Toy Collective, makers of bendable silicone dildos and packers

New York Toy Collective are the premiere makers of bendable silicone dildos and packers! They are known for the pack-and-play Shilo (although I’m a bigger fan of the squirt-enducing larger one, Carter), and high-quality packers like Archer and the uncut (!) Pierre. Their site includes the widest selection of color choices, a whoops section with discounted items, and they even sell my favorite harness.


Lovense is known for making bluetooth remote-controlled long-distance toys such as the Lush, HushNora, and Max. Cam performers in particular love their toys, as they’re all tip-responsive and programmable.


Liberator makes what they call “bedroom adventure gear.” In layman’s terms, SEX FURNITURE. Their positioning pillows are amazing for propping up during sex; my favorite is the classic Wedge. They also make the lifesaving Fascinator Throe, a waterproof blanket. Squirters rejoice!

Twisted Monk, the most trusted name in bondage rope!

Twisted Monk is the most trusted name in bondage rope. They make classic hemp rope, as well as exotic ropes such as bamboo, silk, cotton, SPARKLE, and electro-conductive. Their site is a wonderland of rope kits, accessories, and educational materials. I love their Curiosity Candles for wax play, too.

I use their robust DreamPress service, which also includes automatic daily back-ups and a faster server.

Looking for porn?

This is my primary VOD (video-on-demand/streaming) porn theater from the same place that runs HotMovies4Her. You can find practically anything on it, and best of all, you can watch only the scenes you really want! I keep a running list of my favorites on this page. I also have a store on GameLink if you prefer. features the best queer porn all under one roof! It’s like the Netflix of queer porn. Pay-as-you-go with rentals, or get a membership with PinkLabel PLUS for unlimited access. Browse indie porn from all different studios, such as T-Wood (trans and queer men), Trouble Films (queer everything!), Bonus Hole Boys (trans men with cis guys), Heavenly Spire (masculine beauty), Blue Artichoke Films (cis hetero couples), Handbasket Productions (trans women and queer folks), and of course Pink & White (queer everything!).

Lust Cinema

Erika Lust’s membership site Lust Cinema has all her films, as well as videos from awesome feminist directors such as Jacky St. James, Michelle Flynn, Joybear, and Jennifer Lyon Bell. Or check out her popular site XConfessions, where she shoots films based on anonymous fantasies.

Don’t want to get a membership? Consider EroticFilms, which has similar selection but offers rentals of individual scenes/movies instead.


Looking for hot, well-shot gay porn? I love CockyBoys. Gorgeous humans (look up Jacen Zhu, he’s incredible!), pristine lighting, excellent chemistry… it’s all there. This site offers individual scenes, mini series episodes, live cams, and even full-length features (such as the award-winning A Thing of Beauty and spooky The Haunting).


SugarInstant is basically the Netflix of (mainstream-leaning) porn. It rules! Read about my experience with it.

Hot alt girls make Burning Angel one of the few membership networks still worth joining. Membership grants you access to over 900 movies for download (or HD streaming!), and almost 300 girls to interact with.

The groundbreaking queer porn series The Crash Pad was the inspiration for, which delivers steamy new episodes every two weeks, including access to over 250 previous episodes and thousands of photos.

Since 2002, Indie Porn Revolution (previously NoFauxxx) has been the place for authentic, diverse, and hot queer porn. They’ve recently expanded with the addition of other sites: Real Queer PornQueer Porn TV, Fat Girl Fantasies, and FTM Fucker.

Ciné Sinclaire

I cannot tell you how much I adore Ciné Sinclaire! This is the life’s work of one of my good friends, Kate, who is following her vision for inclusive, respectful, and hot porn. It’s on a pay-what-you-can structure for maximum accessibility.

Bright Desire

Ms. Naughty has been on the forefront of the feminist porn movement for over a decade, and Bright Desire is the online home for all of her erotic films. It features scenes of real life couples and intimate solo scenes, plus access to photos, interviews with performers, erotic fiction, and more.
