As the Sex Toy Nerds, we’re obsessively committed to finding the best sex toys in existence. We’ve spent hundreds of hours researching the best (and worst) toys that money can buy, and have personally tested many of these toys in our own “private lab.” We’ve tested vibrators, dildos, butt plugs, strap-ons, bondage gear, and more – and we want to share that knowledge with you.
Since we just started this blog – and it takes a lot of time to review toys and write up the results – we’re focusing mostly on butt plugs for now (the type of toy we have the most of in our toy box). Check back soon as we’ll be expanding to dildos, vibrators, couple’s toys, BDSM gear, and male masturbators in the near future!

How We Find the Top-Rated Sex Toys
We take many factors into consideration when selecting the best toys in each category. Here are the primary 4 factors we consider when reviewing sex toys:
- Materials & Build Quality – is the toy made of high quality, body-safe materials? Are there multiple size and color options available?
- Design & Function – will the toy get you off? What special features (if any) does the toy bring to the table?
- Price – will it break the bank, or leave room in the budget to buy more toys? You often get what you pay for in this industry, but we try to highlight the best budget toys available too.
- Manufacturer – is the maker known to stand by their products and take care of customers? Or are these toys sold by mysterious overseas companies whose names change every 6 weeks?
Understanding the Internet Adult Toy Marketplace
Speaking of manufacturers… buying sex toys online is somewhat of a minefield. There are many shady manufacturers who claim to have the best products, but are nowhere to be found for customer support when their cheap sex toys break. Even worse, many foreign sex toy makers claim to use body safe materials while their toys actually contain unsafe or toxic materials.
This is why we have carefully vetted every sex toy and manufacturer on our site. There are lots of cheap sex toys out there that seem like a great deal – but in truth, buying from a reputable manufacturer is going to cost a bit more.
But we guarantee: buying a high quality sex toy from a reputable maker will be worth every penny in the long term. That said, let’s dive in. Here are some of the top sex toys in various categories.
