One of our favorite analyses of sex toy preferences is data journalist Jon Millward's piece, "Down the Rabbit Hole: What One Million Sex Toy Sales Reveal About Our Erotic Tastes, Kinks and Desires". In the spirit of this piece, we begin each year by sharing a metric of our own: the top five best-selling sex toys of the past 12 months.
1. H2O Vibe
Yes, the H2O Vibe is exactly what it looks like—an aquatic vibrator that connects to your shower hose and propels a pleasurable stream of water onto your clitoris. (What, that wasn't your first guess?) Before we ran the numbers, we expected that the H2O Vibe would rank as one of our best-selling sex toys of 2016. It was exciting to learn that it ranked number one. 😊
2. We-Vibe 4 Plus
No surprises here. The We-Vibe 4 Plus is not just our best-selling couples vibrator, it is one of the best-selling couples vibrators. And for good reason. We-Vibe has designed a wearable vibrator that fits comfortably in place, even as you and your partner move around during sex.
Editor's note: The item pictured above is the We-Vibe Sync, the successor to the We-Vibe 4 Plus.
3. Epi24 Womanizer Pro W500
Wow, we can't say enough good things about the Epi24 Womanizer Pro W500. The Womanizer sex toys are unique air pulsators that have been proven to deliver strong, deep clitoral orgasms in three minutes or less. The Womanizer line exploded onto the sex toy scene this year, and we expect that it will be the first of a whole new product category for shoppers.
4. Semenette POPDildo
A collaboration between Semenette and Fun Factory, the POPDildo is an ejaculating dildo that is sculpted to target the G Spot. It's ideal for same sex women and lesbian couples, or anyone who enjoys the sensation of ejaculation during sex. Unlike other ejaculating dildos, the POPDildo is made from medical grade silicone and its plastic tubing can be replaced after each use. Naturally, we're fans.
5. Jopen Vanity Vr12
We suspected that a Jopen rabbit vibrator would find itself among our top-selling sex toys of 2016, and our suspicion was confirmed. The Jopen Vanity Vr12 is a dual stimulator that offers the incredible triple threat combination of length, girth, and power. If you're looking for a dual stim vibrator that will provide you with a "full" feeling, the Vanity Vr12 is an excellent choice.
