When choosing a sex toy, the material is just as important as the power, price and function.
What feels good for one person won’t feel so hot for another, some people have allergies (such as a latex) and others are eager to avoid phthalates. Whatever your reasons for being interested in a certain sex toy material, we try to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right toy for you.

Silicone lube is a water-resistant lube that's safe to use with condoms and ideal for long-lasting lubrication during sex. Lots of people love silicone lube as it doesn't end up feeling sticky like a water-based lube does. Silicone lube is even waterproof, so it's fantastic for fulfilling bathroom sex fantasies.
Silicone sex lube is generally more expensive than water-based lube (because it contains more expensive ingredients) but you get a lot for your money. The long-lasting properties mean you won’t need to keep topping up your lubrication and you’ll need less of it too.
One important thing to note is that you can’t use silicone lube with your silicone sex toys, but it’s perfect for your glass or plastic toys and ideal for sex.
Though some women are lucky enough to orgasm through penetration alone, for most it's the external, nerve-ending rich clitoris that's key to female pleasure.

Check out our top 10 best clit vibes, and don't forget to add a female orgasm booster to your basket too, to aid arousal and then increase your clitoral sensitivity.
Find out how to put on and use a cock ring or penis ring with our guide and video. Cock rings are one of the simplest sex aids around. Cock rings work by preventing blood from flowing back down the penis, which in turn helps to make erections feel harder and last longer than normal, making your enjoyment last longer and orgasm more likely.
Some people choose a cock ring that is worn on the shaft, others like the feeling of a cock ring that goes around the penis and the testicles. This guide will show you how to put on both kinds of cock ring.
This guide explains how to put on a fixed, rigid cock ring. If you would like to know how to put on a stretchy, vibrating cock ring please read the How to Use a Vibrating Cock Ring guide.

Lovehoney has valiantly tested the lot to find the top 10 toys with the strongest vibrations and most intense sensations.
Mains powered sex toys top our chart, because of the large amount of energy they receive from your power supply - there's just no beating them if power is top of your vibrator shopping list.
