Many of us are now more comfortable openly talking about masturbation and pleasure than ever before, so it just may be that holiday gifts this year could likewise be more sex-positive. In fact, many pleasure purveyors are offering sex toy gift sets, which gleefully blurs the lines between the “naughty” and “nice” list where presents are concerned. Because, folks, it’s been a year—and we deserve to double down on pleasure.
“With all the anxieties that we have had to face this year—racist attacks, pandemic, elections, workforce changes—a lot of people have lost their libido,” says Marla Renee Stewart, sexologist for sexual wellness retailer Lovers. “It’s time to get back to bringing back all the good things that sex does for your body.”
Along those lines, think of sex toy gift sets as the perfect self-care package for so many people in your life: you, your Blanche Devereaux bestie, your uninspired partner, your mom with no boundary issues, and maybe not your dad but definitely your daddy. “If you know someone who has had a lot of changes over the past year, this is a good way to show them that you care about their mental and sexual health,” says Stewart. “Tapping into their sexuality might bring about new inspiration for the new year and help facilitate good feelings for the road up ahead.”
Below, find 9 sex toy gift sets that bring joy to the world (or at least your bedroom)
