I have such love for Nikki Darling, a little online shop based in Australia. From the start, they’ve offered an approachable and gender-free shopping experience, with a catalog that is heavily influenced by bloggers’ opinions and, as they call it, “road-testing.” Imagine that! Owner Lauren is a gem, and can we talk about their adorable sex toy pins?!

Might I interest you in a fruit- or vegetable-shaped sex toy? That’s the domain of German company SelfDelve. They make 100% silicone dildos shaped like corn, bananas, pickles, carrots, cucumbers, eggplants, and asparagus, and more. Some of their toys even use thermochromic pigments, so they change color with temperature. See this in action on a banana dildo here.
