We know you probably came to Indigo Honey for the pleasure products, but we’re pretty sure you stayed for all the drop-dead gorgeous vibrator art.
If you go gaga over lush colors and finely sculpted shapes, then you’ve come to the right place, babe. Us gals at Indigo Honey are proud to stock our shelves with the best pleasure eye candy on the market.
Today’s beautifully designed sex toys are a far cry from the yawn-worthy, eye-roll-inducing vibes of yesterday. Let’s face it, if you popped into an adult boutique in the 80s or 90s, your choices were pretty limited. If the flesh-toned, oversized penises didn’t do it for you, well, let’s hope you really adored the giant, hard plastic sticks that were passed off as vibrators back in the day.
Luckily for us, modern pleasure products are a lot easier on the eyes (and the sexy parts.)
We’ve rounded up some our favorite vibrators that add spice to your sex life and artistic flair to your nightstand. We dare you to leave them out and see if your friends realize they’re more than just tabletop sculptures.
The Mimic is a lot of things: a gender-fluid sex toy, a curious shape you can safely pull out in public (check out their exhibitionist marketing campaign, #MimicTheMoment), and the first vibrator to steal its’ shape from a sea creature (and that’s the Manta Ray, if you’ve never been snorkeling.)
But first and foremost, this ergonomic, versatile piece of silicone is a vibrator that seamlessly transitions from self-pleasure sessions to couples’ play.
Let it encompass your pleasure parts during masturbation, and then watch as it brings you to orgasm during penetration without getting in the way of skin-on-skin action.
If you think you’ve seen everything in the dual-stim, “Rabbit Habit” category, you ain’t seen nothin’ until you’ve laid your eyes (and your pleasure parts) on the O’Venus. The sad truth is that a lot of clitoral-and-vaginal combo vibes just don’t hit all the right spots at all the right times for most babes.
The O’Venus – developed by professional sex toy tester Venus O’Hara and Spanish toy company Adrien Lastic – circumvents the ol’ double-orgasm issue with its’ triangle shape. Rest the triple-fingered clitoral stimulator on your outside parts and then find your perfect internal angle with the flexible arm.
News flash: The O’Venus favors shallow penetration, but don’t think this will lessen your big O. The vaginal opening is where a lot of your most sensitive nerve endings are located.
Did Screaming O just turn an office supply into a sex toy? We’re pretty sure the answer is yes.
The Reach-It! rechargeable vibe looks more like a functional desk decoration than a bedroom toy, and that’s what makes it so awesome. That angled, silicone neck is perfect for squeezing in-between your legs when there’s – ahem! – other good stuff going on down there.
When you’re on the road, toss it in your laptop carry-on and the TSA agent will just think you’re super prepared for your business trip. For extra fun, give yourself a reach-around and tickle the outside of your back door using all that extra length.
Oral sex simulators for clitoris owners are all the rage, and there’s no model more gorgeous and tech-sleek than the Sona Cruise by luxury vibe legends LELO.
That little suction cup head engulfs your clit with vibrations and pressure-wave stimulation that feels almost like the real thing. If you accidentally leave it on the bathroom sink after toy cleaning time, your roommate or partner might think you’ve stumbled upon a revolutionary motorized pore cleanser.
Whether you go with the pink and gold combo or opt for the classic black and gold, the Sona Cruise serves looks while serving awesome orgasms.
If you could wave a magic wand, what would you wish for? We’d definitely wish for a life filled with stellar climaxes.
The Diamond Wand makes sexual dreams come true. With 21 vibration patterns, you’ll never tire of finding new ways to get to Kingdom Come with this gorgeous textured vibe. Rub the blissful criss-cross texture against your clit or insert the bulbous tip and tease your g-zone.
The Diamond Wand pulls off more magic tricks than the new kid at Hogwarts.
Girly-girls, take heart – quite literally. Rianne S is famous for creating sex toys that could easily take shelf space at the Macy’s accessory counter. Her ultra-femme toys come boxed up in pink and purple ribbons with Parisian-inspired artwork.
The Heart Vibe is a dainty addition to your sex toy drawer. Accented in shiny gold, this palm-sized vibrator caresses your clitoris with its’ sensuous curves and soft silicone.
Unless you press the power button and cycle through the 10 vibration modes, you’d never know this delicate work of sex art isn’t just a cute little thing you picked up in the home décor section of Target.
Is this pretty purple contraption a nipple clamp, a wearable couples’ toy, or a self-pleasure device for avant garde art collectors? The Tryst is all of the above and about a bazillion other things, depending on what you’re into.
This funky vibrator works on all body parts for all people. Slip it over a penis for a new take on mutual masturbation. Separate the arms and run them up and down the sides of your labia. Slide it over a dildo and grind against the vibrating portion when you’re all alone.
Just like an abstract painting, the Tryst is whatever you make it.
Those adorable shapes. Those colors that define the word eye-candy. And they’re all under $70.
Where do we sign up to get our hands on Blush Novelties’ kitch-inspired Aria Collection of bullet vibes? (Right here on Indigo Honey – you know, in case you needed a reminder.)
From the cutesy-woodsy vibes of the Sweet Leaf to the curvy turquoise of the Kirby, this collection of mini toys just might be the best undiscovered beauties on the sex toy circuit.
Leave ’em out on your dresser and your girls might think you’ve started to collect Japanese pop figurines.
Is that a stolen piece of art from the MOMA in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
If the Opus Pleasure Vibe from NS Novelties’ Luxe Collection were blown up to ten times its’ original size and planted in New York’s Central Park, you might mistake this flexible, dual-stim vibe for the work of a serious artist.
The Opus’ smooth, curved ends and open design aren’t, believe it or not, created just for your viewing pleasure. The dramatic curves reach right for your clitoris and g-spot, while the open center allows you to insert your finger into this unique vibe and flex that velvety-soft head against your internal hot spots.
Pipedream’s Icicles collection is a shoe-in for the sex art niche.
The Groovy No. 8 and its’ expertly-crafted family of glass dildos are hand-blown, making each piece unique – just like an original work of glass sculpture. We love the Groovy No. 8 because it’s essentially a prism for your pussy.
You might get around to using this ice-blue wand for orgasms – if you can take your eyes off it’s entrancing sparkle first.
Giving the Groovy a twirl is like peeking into the lense of a kaleidoscope. Dip it in a glass of cool or warm water for a taste of temperature play goodness.
