At the end of each year, you will get flooded with lists and overviews. Of course, I don’t want to fall behind. I already published ‘best of’ lists in 2016 and 2015 in Dutch. But since I started to blog in English in 2017, I thought I’d give you an overview of what I believe are the best sex toys that came to market in 2017 in English too. Unfortunately, it was impossible to test them all personally. But that won’t keep me from presenting my totally subjective list of the best sex toys of 2017.
Best sex toys of 2017
According to me, these are the five best sex toys that we’ve welcomed on the Dutch market in 2017:
For everybody with a clitoris
After Womanizer launched their product in 2014, many comparable products appeared. They all make use of air pressure. In 2017 one after the other Womanizer ‘look-a-like’ came along. Womanizer was fighting some of them over patent rights. Competitor Satisfyer did a lot to improve their products. They launched their Satisfyer Pro 2, that was much quieter, and 100% water proof. Personally I think that the Satifyer still can’t match with the original, but the proce difference is convincing. That’s why it is good to know that the Womanizer Pro40 model is (temporarily?) back on the market for only €99,-. LELO too developed a similar product – the Sona – that doesn’t work on air pressure but on sonar waves. Unfortunately, I haven’t tested it yet. Based on the sales results and the value for money, we must say that the Satisfyer Pro 2 is the best for everyone with a clitoris.
For everybody with a sex life
In 2017, advents calendars with sex toys first came out. Although it is not a big commercial success, we must give this initiative an A for the effort. The content of these Advent Calendars differs a lot, and so does the price. One has some chocolate in the shape of dick or a pair of boobs, while others actually contain vibrators and lingerie.
For if you have a penis
The Fleshlight is probably the best sold sex toy for men. All Fleslights look like a flashlight (hence the name), but the opening and the shaft differs from model to model.The Fleshlight Go Torque belongs to the ‘Ice’ family of Fleshlight. That means that the sleeve is transparant. This not only makes it interesting as a masturbator, but also to use it together with a partner. Your partner will be able to see what’s going on in there.
For everybody that likes to practice safe sex
Although the LELO HEX condoms were launched back in 2016, it didn’t really break through in The Netherlands until this year. The LELO HEX condoms are unique, because they are extremely thin and yet extremely strong. Further more, the package looks realy luxurious (not unimportant).
For everybody with a vagina
The last couple of years there was a lot of innovation in vibrators. This year, the Mysteryvibe’s Crescendo, kicked it up a notch. This vibrator can be bend in several ways, making the possibilities endless. And it comes with six (6!) motors, which enables it to vibrate over its entire length.
