Sex Toys: Does Expensive Mean Better?


Are expensive sex toys necessarily better? Celebrities and lifestyle bloggers alike gush about luxury gold-plated sex toys that we simply “must have” and ergonomic game-changing vibrators that are supposed to be the best sex toys ever.

Some of the most expensive sex toys out there are more extravagant than practical. Read on to learn if it’s worth spending your hard-earned money on these luxury sex toys?

Toys That Are Not Worth It:

While we’ll never say no to a luxury sex toy, here are some of the toys that are expensive not because they’ll send you to orgasm heaven, but because they’re made out of expensive stuff. These are the toys that may not be everything they’re touted to be:

Bejeweled Sex Toys

The most expensive sex toys on the market are exclusive luxury items that often look like jewelry. The price tags range from steep to extra-steep. The Lelo INEZ is a gold-plated vibrator that costs $15,000, but then there’s Beckham’s Gift, an exclusive $1.8 million Platinum vibrator that David Beckham had custom designed for Victoria Beckham.

Why aren’t these the best sex toys ever? Firstly, they aren’t worth their weight in gold. Gold-plated vibrators don’t have that much gold on them. The interior is the same as in any vibrator. Secondly, the precious metals don’t exactly improve the experience at all, unless bling turns you on (more on that later).

Crazy Gag Toys

One of the wackiest and most expensive sex toys on the market is The Moby, a 3-foot-tall realistic dildo. It will set you back a good $500 or so bucks. While this is an absolute must-have for any novelty dildo collector, it isn’t worth the price for the rest of us. Novelty sex toys such as The Moby can be quite expensive. Why spend so much money on something you can’t even really use?

Toys That Are Totally Worth It:

Relative to their cost, these are some of the luxury expensive sex toys that are totally worth it:

Sex Furniture


Sex furniture is one of those categories that can get a little pricey. If you want to explore the limits of pleasure, though, furniture can help you get there. From sex wedges to sex swings and full-blown sex couches, these pieces are designed to give you a boost or help you get into a specific position. With the right furniture, even exotic positions can become totally doable!

Feel weird about having props for sex? Just know that yogis use blocks and cushions for support too, and yoga and sex have a lot in common. For one, they’re both workouts. Sex furniture may become the most expensive sex toy in your collection, but it is generally long-lasting and should give you enough use to justify its expense.

Luxury Vibrators/ Prostate Massagers

Sex toy designers are on a continual quest to better understand human physiology. Modern sex toys offer better, safer pleasure than ever, creating new sensations and exploring new zones. Vibrators are now able to more effectively target the G-spot and even stimulate oral sex; for men, on-target prostate massagers have become some of the best sex toys ever.

The Thruster

Priced at $199,the Thruster may become one of the more expensive sex toys in your collection, but it is much more affordable than toys with similar thrust capacities. Typical thrusting sex machine toys are huge and expensive, often costing up to $1500.
