Women’s Health Picks 20 Sex Toys That Could 'Change Your Life'

CYBERSPACE—In a feature published recently on its site, Women's Health magazine highlighted “20 Sex Toys That Might Just Change Your Life.” Set up as a slideshow, the 20 picks were billed as “top pleasure boosts—whether you want to go on a solo mission or share the good vibes with your guy.”

The Screaming O—whose Makeup Brush Vibe was featured—tipped AVN off to the product spotlight. Women's Health selected items from a wide range of manufacturers: drugstore brands like Trojan and Durex, large pleasure product manufacturers like California Exotic Novelties, and boutique manufacturers like Jimmyjane and Revel Body.

The products were organized in four categories:

Nightstand-Friendly/For a Newbie included discreet and playful choices: the Shiri Zinn Cupcake, the Crave Wink Vibe, the Trojan Vibrating Multi-Thrill 3 in 1 Vibrating Bullet, the Screaming O Studio Collection Makeup Brush Vibe, and the Lifestyles a:muse His & Hers Pleasure Massagers.

Almost-Real Replica/For a Newbie offered items that looked more like sex toys but were suitable for new users: the Durex Play Allure Intimate Massager, the Adam & Eve Silicone Diamond G, the Jimmyjane Form 6, Lovehoney's Sqweel 2, and the CalExotics Bendies Stud Ballsy.

Nightstand-Friendly/For an Experienced Pro: Included were the Revel Body Sonic Vibrator, Lelo Ora, Jimmyjane Form 2 Luxury Edition, Vibratex's Magic Wand and the We-Vibe 4.

Almost-Real Replica/For an Experienced Pro: Highlighted the Adam & Eve L'Arque G-Spot Massager, Lelo Smart Wand, Afterglow, OhMiBod Lovelife Adventure and Vibratex Rabbit Habit.

Women's Health also provided prices on the items, links to either manufacturer or retail sites, and a note on whether the toys were designed for solo or couples use. (See links below to AVN's reviews of some of these products.)

“The Makeup Brush has been a favorite with first-timers and women who prefer soft massage-like vibration, and it’s no surprise that the editors at Women’s Health touted it not only for its feel but also for its incognito look!” The Screaming O representative Conde Aumann said. “It’s no big deal if this mini vibe is left out in the open or packed in a purse; it looks so much like makeup, no one will even bat an eyelash. It’s her little secret—and we promise that keeping a secret never felt so good!”

The Screaming O Studio Collection Makeup Brush Vibe was recommended by editors at Women’s Health for its “blush-worthy” design that gives women a discreet and compact way to spice up their sex lives. Women’s Health writers recommended the Makeup Brush’s “tease” pulsation that transfers powerful vibration through its thick, flexible silicone “bristles.”
