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 retailers that I haven’t personally interacted with, but that have a good reputation, are Smitten Kitten, Come As You Are, SheBop, 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.

  1. Pick “Phthalate-free – Non-porous” to opt for only body-safe toy in any category (especially ones like “Realistic vibrators”) where some more-porous materials (TPR/TPE and PVC) are included.
  2. The oils in PVC and TPR/TPE typically leach out and start to degrade latex (most condoms) and polyisoprene (like Skyn) almost immediately.
  3. See this constantly updated list of fantasy toy makers for all your options, including some nonsilicone ones.

    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.
