Sex Toys for 2013 & 2014

On December 28th, our product specialists knocked their heads together to come up with a list of possible 2012 sex toy trends. Now that 2 1/2 months are in the bag it’s same to come forward with the fruitions of these predictions. All big words aside, to no surprise our team was right. If anyone were to peek at their resumes, it would make sense why they’re so on the money. These gals really know their stuff and we’re happy to have them as advisors for the store. Here’s a recap of the predictions and their accompanying outcomes and some examples of trendy vibrators that have been selling very well in the last 2 1/2 months.

  • Out:
  1. Scented toys — This option piggy-backs with jelly – since jelly toys always had added scents the new TPR versions are less scented, medical grade silicone being completely unscented; this one is being fazed out simply by the material change.
  2. Packages with pictures of naked women — This is a slow move in the industry but customers here would never really notice much as we don’t upload pictures of packaging, there’s no reason to highlight the container you will be throwing away upon arrival!
  3. Jelly vibrators — Jelly vibrators have been replaced with TPR which is a type of silicone. It’s phthalates free but it is porous so proper cleaning is required. An example of a former jelly vibe updated to TPR is the Daydream vibe.
  4. Straight plastic vibrators — Just like the trend of waif skinny women is disappearing and a natural curvaceous body is in, vibrators are also following suit. Want an example? Check out the blue Lola in the picture.
  5. Dials on the bottom — Inset buttons are popping out every day. The pun was intended – it’s a joke! But in all seriousness, buttons are the raging fad right now. We’re confident more buttons will replace dials in the coming year and even into 2013.

  • In:
  1. Multi functions — Women are being walloped with so many features sex toys are getting way too confusing. Of course for the techie girl with all the latest electronics this is very much appealing however the simplistic might get overwhelmed. Luckily the simple vibration is still there but multi function is becoming a more widespread option.
  2. Vibrators that warm up — Warming lotions back in the 1990′s and warming vibes now. Nothing else has the ability to carry your psyche off to a warm sandy beach, sun gleaming down on your bronzed skin, the motion of the ocean mimicking the movement of your internal muscles towards crashing on the shore, exploding at the moment of orgasm. A little guided visualization is always beneficial!
  3. Trendy looking curvy shapes — Again look at the blue Lola, this babe’s all curves, all glory and super fad like a fashion accessory. In fact this is one of the only vibrators a woman wouldn’t be shy to show her friends.
  4. Silicone surfaces — We’re constantly getting emails from little manufacturers who are launching their own line of medical grade silicone vibrators. We carry some of them but don’t fill our shelves like some other companies. Why? The price is very high for these resulting in lower sales, especially in a slower economy women prefer cheaper options so to balance out the checkbook with pleasure, we focus more on TPR silicone instead.
  5. Buttons on the side — being able to use a vibrator in the bath or shower allows women to use it every day. The reality is a house full of people will near you laying on your bed upstairs happily humming away, however if you sneak it into the shower it’s practically inaudible. Buttons inset on the side is the only way a multi function vibe can be waterproof as it seals of the bottom from water.
