Roses are red, violets are blue, new sex toys are nice, do you want one too?At Self & More we don’t think you should save your declaration of affection for one specific day of the year – and we certainly don’t think that you need to be coupled up in order to celebrate any holiday. But what we can get on board with, is an excuse to treat yourself to a new toy – especially during lockdown when the ways to find pleasure from the outside world are so limited.
Read on for our top picks for lovers and friends – and if you see something you like for yourself? Be your own Valentine, boo!
For the partners with housemates
If your walls are thin and you’re looking for discretion, keep your partner schtum using a ball gag. A simple way to get started with kink, and your housemates will be none the wiser.
The We-Vibe Melt combines pulsating waves and gentle suction to stimulate the clitoris in an entirely new way. Although it's an excellent toy for solo play - this is also a toy that's designed with partnered sex in mind - its slim shape is ideal for sliding between bodies. It's also one of the quietest suction toys we stock.
Partners wanting something new
Love the look of shibari but not sure where to start? Figure of A has got you covered with this beautiful Easy Cuff Set. Make those long lockdown nights a little hotter by playing with power - tie your lover up and have them relinquish control or vice versa.
Pegging (or the act of penetrating someone’s booty with a strap-on) seemed to have a bit of a *moment* in 2020. If you haven’t jumped on the trend yet then look no further than the Pegasus Pegging Kit - with an adjustable harness and a remote-control vibrating dildo, this really is everything you need to explore harness play with your partner.
Our favourite thing about this kit is the silky ties which feel exquisite against your skin and allow for so many different tying scenarios. One end has a loop sewn in, so you don’t need to be a master of knots to get your partner all tied up.
Long distance relationships
Self & More’s best-selling toy is the Satisfyer Pro 2 - this new release from the brand adds app control to the customer-favourite suction toy. Pair your toy with the Satisfyer Connect app and then hand over control to a long-distance lover. Control the vibration and suction functions separately, make your own patterns or experiment with the music settings in which you can experience vibration to the rhythm of your Spotify playlists.
The Svakom Alex is a powerful masturbator that thrusts around your penis for the ultimate *posh wank*. This app-enabled masturbator allows your partner to take control from anywhere in the world and give you a ride you’re not likely to forget anytime soon.
Finally, a rabbit which bends and flexes to fit your anatomy. This is the crème de la crème of rabbit vibrators. The clitoral stimulator on the We-Vibe Nova 2 bends with your movements, keeping constant contact with your clit while stimulating your G-spot. Hours of fun lockdown.
Bored of your own hand? This high-quality stroker adds a new dimension to your solo-play. The squidgy inner core is textured to provide pleasure to your penis - just add lube.
For your gf or pal with a vulva
For quiet, discreet vibes look no further than Gwen. Made from the smoothest silicone, Gwen rumbles gloriously against your body. It’s ideal whether you like to hump and grind your toys or prefer pinpoint stimulation, you can get it from Gwen. Plus The Knude Society is a small, independent female-owned brand just like Self & More.
Versatility is the name of the game with this sleek and rumbly vibe. Use it for G-spot or clitoral stimulation. From the curved shape to the raised oval ridges on the head of this toy - every single element has been perfectly designed to provide both broad and targeted stimulation with the change of an angle. Plus its slim shape means it's easy to slip between bodies during sex.
