For the Female Novice: The Bullet.

Every girl should have her very own bullet. This little vibrational toy is the hottest seller, simply because it delivers, again and again. As the catalog says, “perfect for use with your partner or alone — you’ll want to keep your toy chest loaded.” Our sex toy testers had good things to say about the bullet.

She says: “Say hello to my little friend. I got my first bullet years ago, and upgraded recently to a bigger, better, and faster model. Definitely a classic.”

He says: “Brilliant in its simplicity — can add excitement without making the man feel inadequate or the woman feel overwhelmed.”

For a Guy: The Lover, or Gigi. (a.k.a. masturbation sleeve)

This little super stretch vagina “hugs your penis like no other.” The solo uses are obvious, but this girl can be incorporated into a couples situation pretty easily. It’s hard to be delicate when you’re discussing fake vaginas, but some couples like to use this to enhance and aid in the oral pursuits. Cut it in half and it takes care of half of the shaft, if you get my drift.

She says: “An interesting addition to oral sex, especially good for girls who aren’t that into it. It takes care of the man so you don’t have to.”

He says: “It works in its intended way, but the guy at Fun 4 2 had a geniussuggestion — cut it in half and it lets your girl split the workload.”

For couples looking for enhanced pleasure: The Dolfinger

Customize your bullet, strap it on your man, and get down. There are a dozen varieties of the Dolfinger. Wet and Wild on Pittsburgh Avenue has “The Matador” and Joygirl has the “Little Beaver Finger Vibe” and the “Lilac Elephant.” Whatever animal you choose, the concept is the same. The animal, loaded up with a vibrating bullet, aims for your happy spot, aided in its hunt by your man’s schlong.

She says: “I’m not so sure about this one. It was more of a distraction than a help. I couldn’t stop laughing at the thought of a dolphin diddling me.”

He says: “Tough to get positioned, but once it was in the right spot, it worked. The part that attached to me was flexible and not too tight.”

For fun on the run: The Pocket Rocket

A popular toy for the girl who likes to travel discreetly. Billed as “simply the best mini massager in the world!”

She says: “Don’t tell anybody, but I use this at my desk all day long!”

He says: “What? I’ve never heard of it.”

For advanced users only: The Jack Rabbit

Made famous by the girls on Sex and the City, this cute contraption features multi-speeds, rotating pearls, and little bunny ears designed for clitoral stimulation. Definitely an investment, this little guy costs a whopping amount of money, but you can bet you’ll get your money’s worth for years to come.

She says: “Who needs a man?”

He says: C’mon, who needs a man to help test out the Jack Rabbit?

For the adventurous among you: Playful Plug

We’ve all heard about the stimulating prostate gland, hidden away in the most private regions of your man, but how many of us have ventured a poke or a prod? This plug allows secret explorations without dirtying up your digits.

She says: “Ooh!”

He Says: “Uh……..”
