25 most noteworthy adult toys in 2016: the Adult Toy Report and Review List
The 2016 list from our curators and editorial staff.
It’s that time of year again when our Editorial Team looks at all the posts, products and reviews over the past 12 months to figure out the most popular, bizarre or just interesting adult toys for 2016. Sex robots and Virtual Reality have just started to appear and we expect a lot more in 2017. Meanwhile here is our list prepared from readership stats or just items our content curators liked and caught their attention. Nothing scientific or “big data” in this list; just stuff we thought you may like. Enjoy!
Vibrating Panties – Little Black Panties
The vibrating underwear from California Exotic Novelties offers this interesting lingerie\sex-toy combo billed as the perfect compliment to the little black dress. These vibrating panties are a stretch-to-fit sexy lace thong/panty with adjustable satin ties and a secret pocket for secure bullet placement.
It includes a curved bullet to fit securely against your body and offers 10 vibration settings. Of course there is a wireless remote included as well. What fun would vibrating panties be without giving control up to your man?
According to a great review from Olivia here is why we like those: “….. Pros: Fun to use, discreet, fairly sexy, quite comfortable, and actually capable of bringing you to orgasm. The Little Black Panty from California Exotic Novelties is definitely one of the best pair of vibrating panties on the market. Cons: While the bullet and wireless remote are decent, the actual panties themselves are not very durable. You would be lucky to get more than a few uses out of them….”
This unobtrusive finger vibrator is easy for your partner to wear during foreplay or sex. Dame Products created it to close the “pleasure gap”—the tendency for women to have fewer amazing sexual experiences than men—a mission we can definitely get behind (or, um, in front of).

Don’t be fooled by this one’s tiny size: It packs a lot of power. The bullet vibrator has a strong motor that operates in eight modes.
And when you buy it, you’re really getting multiple toys in one, since it fits into other toys to enhance their vibration.

We love it when an amazing product gets even better but the product description is a MUST READ especially when mentioning Arthritis and wrist issues…..The next generation of the Womanizer, the innovative German-designed clitoral stimulator.
“…..This revolutionary rechargeable sex toy features a focused clitoral suction tip combined with a light, yet incredibly effective, vibration effect, which they call Pleasure Air Technology…..! Its ABS plastic body is topped with a cone shape covered with a removable silicone sleeve; place it over the clitoris for a new kind of erotic ride. The new Pro version offers two exchangeable heads that differ in size and shape; the larger of the two offers wider area coverage, better accommodating people with larger clitorises???. The silicone head even has a light effect so you can see where to place it in the dark! This toy really does all the work for you, so it’s a good choice for people with arthritis or wrist issues;.
Controlled by an on/off Swarovski gemstone button and a silver bar which allows you to scroll through 8 intensity levels. One tap on the on/off button immediately returns you to the lowest setting, allowing you to build up to your orgasm sensually.

Hitachi magic Wand: The Sex Toy to Try If You Just Want to Get the Job Done
The Hitachi Magic Wand is arguably the world’s most beloved, foolproof vibrator. It’s reliable, it’s strong, and it feels like no guy ever has or will be able to.
The problem? It plugs into an outlet, making it not-so-portable or convenient to whip out at a moment’s notice, which is exactly where its newer, younger cousin comes in. The Mystic Wand is battery-powered, keeping you prepared at all times.

The Buzzlet: The Sex Toy to Try If You’re Freaked Out by How They Look
Not so into phallic-looking vibrators? The Buzzlet looks more like an iPod than a sex toy—a big plus if you live with roommates or don’t enjoy getting strange looks from your cleaning lady.
“The Buzzlet has a mod, fun look, and it’s stronger and has more varying modes than many small, portable toys,” says Carol Queen, Ph.D., Good Vibrations staff sexologist.

Duet Cock ring : The Sex Toy to Try If He Takes a Long Time to Orgasm
Although many women would argue that a guy who lasts all night is a good thing, there are just as many out there thinking, Are you finished yet? If you’d like to speed up the process for your guy, opt for a vibrating ring.
The extra sensation around his package will stimulate his nerve endings and help him reach the finish line quicker. You can buy disposable ones at almost any drugstore in the condom aisle, or pick up the reusable Duet Cock Ring, which has two vibrators attached to it, so you’ll benefit just as much as he will.

KY: The Sex Toy to Try If You Need Help Getting in the Mood
Lube is one of the most underrated sex toys. Not only does it help during sex by keeping things slippery, but it also helps before sex by helping you get aroused. Place a small drop in your hand (or his) and give yourselves at least five minutes of manual fun before you even think about going further. The texture of the lube will help maximize any sensation and help get blood circulating where it needs to go. One to try: K-Y Brand Yours + Mine. It comes with one lube for you and one for him.

This battery-operated, sleek vibrator was voted the Best in Bed Award by Women’s Health because of its unique etchings, versatile stimulation techniques and the fact that it’s the quietest vibrator on the market today.
Sleek, professional, body safe and travel ready, this toy can practically live in your jacket pocket for use anytime. This is a great go-to for men who are slightly intimidated by toys. It’s non-threatening and easy to use on your woman. Let her show you the way.
The unfortunately named LovePalz is a Wi-Fi-connected sex toy for you and your partner that basically helps you have sex through Skype, FaceTime or any video service. It comes with two stimulation devices, “Hera” (which looks like a dildo) and “Zeus.”
As you pleasure yourself with your toy, your lover feels it in real time. The toy is connected to an app that has yet to be approved by the Apple Store. The company was rejected from Kickstarter (how prudish is our corporate world?), but has started its own website to fund the toy and take pre-orders. The toys are waterproof, rechargeable and come with an air pump and automatic piston. LovePalz.com

Historically called ‘merkins’, pubic toupees are meant to make up for lost or shaved/waxed/lazered out hair. Vonk is more about the wow factor.
A new take on vegan : the Dildo Maker
Shape your carrots into dildos. And eat them raw….I guess teeth would be allowed in this case. “…….The notion of deriving pleasure from the simple things in life is taken to a whole new level with the introduction of the Dildomaker.
