Where to Shop: From Vanilla to Fantasy

Once you’ve learned about body-safe toys, the next question is where to buy them, because buying from Amazon is not a good option in many, many cases.

Here’s my breakdown of quality online sex shops, toy makers who sell direct, and fantasy and Etsy shops in case you’re looking for something more out-of-the-ordinary.

Sex Shops

Other online sex shops I’ve heard many good things about are Smitten Kitten, Come As You Are, and Babeland.

Trustworthy Toy Makers & Etsy Shops

Check out my Silicone Dildo Firmness Guide for more info about how many of these toys feel in use.



There are many small fantasy makers and Etsy stores out there, but these are the ones that I feel most confident recommending.3 Shops are US-based unless otherwise noted. For a listing of European silicone dongmakers, see this Tumblr post.

  1. And all the shop’s dildo categories, all of which have lots of silicone in them.
  2. A platinum silicone outer layer over a thermoplastic core. The thermoplastic/bioplastic is in the polycaprolactane group, which means that (unlike TPE/TPR), it can safely be used internally (like in dental implants) and is biodegradable.
  3. See this constantly updated list of fantasy toy makers for all your options, including some nonsilicone ones. I’d previously recommended against buying from Frisky Beast because of the long wait times and horrendous customer service, but in October 2017 it was announced that Twin Tail Creations had bought Frisky Beast out, so the situation is improving.

    This is really helpful! I really had no idea about where to go for trusted quality products. I really love how you separated out the different categories too.
