For people who like porn

These suggestions would work best as a gift for your partner(s) because you’ll have to create an account to access them. Here are five of our favorite sites:

Crash Pad is a seriously rad queer porn site. crashpad_bannerThey work with a really diverse group of people who you can check out here. Sign up for a month, 3 months, or a year and get access to over 200 episodes, behind the scenes interviews, and more.

Pink Label is a feminist porn video-on-demand site with films from lots of different studios. Watch Courtney Trouble’s awesome porn (Girl Pile, Trans Lesbians, Fucking Mystic, etc), FTM Fucker, Heavenly Spire, Crash Pad Series, and more. Many of the films here are Feminist Porn Awards winners!

QueerPornTV, as you may have guessed, is… a queer porn site, too! Here you can find more porn made by Courtney Trouble, like this scene with Chelsea Poe and Bailey Jay, and films, including Girl Pile, which I mentioned above.

TRENCHCOATx is “curated smut” brought to you by Stoya and Kayden Kross. The site has an a la carte format so you could curate your own collection for someone!

Burning Angel is owned by Joanna Angel, which should be a good enoughburning_angel reason to be interested because she’s amazing, but if you need more convincing go check out all the sexy tattooed lovelies on the site.

For people who like to read

One of my favorite gifts to give and get are books! Here are my top suggestions from this year:

Coming Out Like a Porn Star: edited by and featuring Jiz Lee, with stories from Joanna Angel, Stoya, Courtney Trouble, Nina Hartley, Kitty Stryker, Chelsea Poe, Conner Habib, and many more.

Come as You Are: by Emily Nagoski, PhD,come_as_you_are_coming_out_porn_star a scientific exploration of women’s sexuality. It is deeply satisfying to the human sexuality/science/psych nerd in me.

Best Sex Writing 2015: featuring tons of wonderful people including Stoya, Jiz Lee, Tina Horn, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Lauren Marie Fleming, and Epiphora!

Dirty Dates: a kinky new erotica anthology edited by my fave Rachel Kramer Bussel.

Oh Joy Sex Toy, volume 1 & volume 2: Each volume collects a year’s worth of content from the very popular comic Oh Joy Sex Toy.

Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls: by Jes Baker, aka The Militant Baker is all about body-positivity!

Oh, and don’t forget about Kindle editions and audiobooks.

For couples

How about some massage oils or candles? I’m obsessed with the Kama Sutra massage candles which you can read about here.

Lingerie can be a great gift, which Lovehoney has lots of. OR if you get this “body bowyou can be the present *wink wink nudge nudge*!

Liam’s top suggestion for a couples gift is a vibrating cock ring, like the Tantus Vibrating Super Soft C-Ring, which you can get directly from Tantus, or from SheVibe.

The Liberator Wedge is always a good choice, a favorite of many. Even Aziz Ansari’s character Dev got one from Babeland for his girlfriend in Master of None (which is a seriously great show and you should watch it!!). So yes, Babeland carries them, and so does SheVibe.gift_sets

Gift sets make pretty sweet gifts too:

The Kama Sutra Getaway Kit features body lotion, lube, a candle, and more. Find it at SheVibe.

The LELO Dare Me Pleasure Set includes LELO Luna Beads Noir, Sensua Suede Whip, and Theresa Silk Cuffs. Find it at SheVibe.

The We-Vibe Passionate Play Collection, which we just bought and are very excited about, comes with a We-Vibe 4 Plus (it can be controlled with a phone app! Fancy!) and a Tango. SheVibe, Babeland, and Lovehoney have it.

For people with penises

Tenga Eggs are fun! They’re stretchy masturbation sleeves that come in a variety of textures. They are made to be single-use toys but as long as you give them a gentle cleaning after using them you can use them several times. One year we bought a 6-pack “carton” of them and gave them to friends as Christmas gifts. Find them at Babeland  Lovehoney, and SheVibe.tenga_egg_tantus_ring

The Tantus Super Soft C-Ring is another excellent choice for only $10. It’s especially good for people new to cock rings. Get it directly from Tantus or from Lovehoney or SheVibe.

Fleshlight has a new toy called the Quickshot which is just $35. We just bought one during their Black Friday sale, so we don’t have a review yet but if you’re curious about it you should head over to The Big Gay Review and read what he has to say about it (it’s what convinced me to buy one!). Buy it directly from Fleshlight or get it from Bableland or Lovehoney.

And you can’t forget about the other original style of Fleshlights. Liam loves his Stoya Fleshlight (read his review here) and suggests checking out their Fleshlight Girls line. fleshlight_quickshot_stoyaIt could be fun to give your gift recipient a Fleshlight replica of their favorite porn star’s vulva right? Check out Fleshlight’s site to see what they’ve got, or look at Babeland, Lovehoney, SheVibe, or Stockroom.

For people who like vibrators

Well an obvious choice here is the LELO Inez Stainless Steel Vibrator… just kidding, it’s about $8,000!

Seriously though, you should consider the We-Vibe Tango, an incredibly rumbly and satisfying little clitoral vibe that pretty much everyone, including me, loves. It’s nearly perfect. Get it. That is all. You can get one (or two, or three) from Babeland, Lovehoney, or SheVibe.

The LELO Mona 2wevibe_tango_lelo_mona is another universally adored vibrator known for it’s strong, rumbly vibration and great shape. It feels great internally and externally so it’s versatility makes it a great gift choice. Find it at Babeland (psst, it’s $30 cheaper here), SheVibe, and Stockroom.

The toy I’ve wanted to try the most this year but sadly haven’t yet is the L’amourose Rosa. I’ve read so many enticing reviews about it and let’s face it, the emerald color is super cool. You can buy one from Lovehoney or SheVibe.

Somehow I don’t own one of these yet either, but I’ve heard the Magic Wand Rechargeable is as amazing as you’d expect. You can purchase one from Babeland, LovehoneySheVibe, or Tantus.lamourose_rosa_fun_factory_miss_bi

The Womanizer, a unique new vibrator with a ridiculously bad name, has received a lot of praise and piqued my interest this year. Maybe there is a person in your life whose clitoris would enjoy this toy? Find it at BabelandLovehoney, or SheVibe.

This list would be incomplete without my favorite vibrator I tried this year: the Fun Factory Miss Bi! Since it’s a dual stim vibrator it might not work for everyone’s anatomy so keep that in mind. You can find it at Babeland or SheVibe.

For people who like dildos

Handmade gifts are always nice, but I don’t suggest going that route if you want to give someone a sex toy… The next best thing is getting them custom toys! Try Exotic-Erotics (read about our Phoenix here) or Bad Dragon for made-to-order fantasy dildos.tantus_cush_vixskin_mustang

Tantus Flurry and Cush are dual density toys that are as pretty as they are squishy. They’re just awesome and you should have one okay? Get the Flurry from Tantus or SheVibe, and the Cush at Tantus or SheVibe.

Tantus also recently released their first vibrating dual density toy: Alan.Get it directly from Tantus or from SheVibe (psst, without discounts it’s $35 dollars cheaper here).

Another toy on my own wishlist is the Vixen Vixskin Mustang. Find it at Babeland (they even have a limited edition Babeland one), Lovehoney, and SheVibe (and in tie-bright).

The Fun Factory Bouncer is a new and unique dildo, and would keep your gift recipient guessing if they tried shaking the present to see what it was… this dildo has jiggly balls in the shaft! You can buy one at Babeland, Lovehoney, or SheVibe.

For people who are into butt stuff

Babeland sells the Fun Factory Bootie Plug with our favorite lube, Sliquid Sassy, for just $40! We haven’t tried the Bootie ourselves but others adore it.

I’ve heard the new LELO Hugo and Bruno are divine for prostate stimulation. These toys are almost exactly the same, but the Hugo comes with a remote control. Find the Hugo at Babeland, tantus_plug_lelo_hugoLovehoney, and SheVibe, and the Bruno at Babeland, Lovehoney, and Shevibe as well.

The Tantus Perfect Plug and Perfect Plug Plus are great for beginners or people who prefer small plugs. The Perfect Plug Plus is a little larger and vibrates. Get the Perfect Plug directly from Tantus or from SheVibe. You can get the Perfect Plug Plus directly from Tantus, or find it at Lovehoney or SheVibe. If you can’t decide which one to get, then just get the Perfect Plug Kit, from Tantus or SheVibe.

The Tantus Meteorite is one of the most colorful butt toys around and is also perfect for beginners or people who prefer small plugs. Get it from Tantus.

Don’t forget the LUBE!

I think lube is like the sexy equivalent of giving someone socks. Everyone could use some and it’s not very expensive. In our opinion, the best lubes are vegan sliquid_sassy_sizzle_swirland paraben- and glycerin- free. Here are a couple that fit those criteria:

We very highly recommend Sliquid, especially Sassy which is our go-to and is perfect for butt stuff. They also make a few variations of Swirl, which is flavored. Sizzle, a warming lube, is fun too. Get some Sliquid at Babeland, LovehoneySheVibe, Stockroom, or Tantus. Or, buy it directly from Sliquid (where you can use the code “vivalasexy” to get 10% off!).

Good Clean Love is another lube we love. It feels great and it’s organic. Get the unscented kind or try cinnamon vanilla. You can buy it at SheVibe.
