Looking for incredible selection and excellent deals? 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 SelfDelve, Crystal Delights, Hole Punch, Number One Laboratory (makers of the BJ Dildo), Pris Toys, and Funkit Toys  — 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.

Spectrum Boutique

Spectrum Boutique is a hip, modern Detroit-based online sex shop dedicated to body-safe toys and radical inclusion. With a curated selection of products (they stock a bunch of my favorite things, including the Jollet and Inclusion Harness!) and a refreshing lack of gendered language, their site is a haven of sex-positivity.

Come As You Are

Shopping in Canada? I implore you, look no further than Come As You Are, one of Canada’s best indie sex shops!

My favorite things are listed right here, and here’s their sale section.

Early to Bed

Early to Bed is an adorable indie sex shop in Chicago run by one of the sweetest (and most hilarious) people I’ve met in the industry. They go the extra mile with their online store, shooting their own product photos and writing their own pros/cons for each toy. That’s passion, right there. Here are my favorite things that they carry.

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?!

Straight from the manufacturer

Get 10% off your order at Fun Factory with code EPIPHORA

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), 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.

We-Vibe makes bomb-ass vibrators such as the tiny but mighty Tango X and Touch X (my review), versatile G-spottin’ Rave (my review), ergonomic rabbit Nova (my thoughts), excellent cock ring Pivot, and intuitive Wand. My favorite Womanizer model, by far, is the Pro40. Especially the attractive Lovehoney edition.

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), Magma (my review), Echo (my review), and Ryder (my review). See more here! They even stock the Magic Wand Rechargeable and Doxy.

Crystal Delights

Crystal Delights makes gorgeous glass toys with Swarovski crystals in their bases.

Luxury sex toy brand LELO is hit-and-miss, but their solid offerings include the Mona 2 (my gushing review), Siri 2 (my review), Tor 2 cock ring, and Luna Beads (my review). TOR

The Dame Kip — a pinpoint rechargeable vibe with rumbly vibrations — is one of my favorite bullet vibes, and I love their minty and long-lasting Arousal Serum. Get 10% off at Dame with code EPIPHORA.

If you like your dildos small batch and hand-crafted, you will love Portland Toy Company. Founded by a non-binary queer femme, all their silicone toys are individually cast, so no two are exactly alike. I love the intense Prism, designed to mimic the sensation of fisting, and their Jewel is an adorable introductory butt plug.


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 Throw, a waterproof blanket. Squirters rejoice!
