Shopping for sex toys can be intimidating, especially if you’re just starting to build your collection. That’s a big part of the appeal of buying them on Amazon—you’re not just guaranteed quick shipping via Amazon Prime, you’re guaranteed plenty of privacy, too.
But here’s the catch: There’s a lot of junk on Amazon. From lousy vibrators that’ll break after a couple uses or toys made with ultra-cheap materials that could irritate sensitive skin, some of the highest-rated sex toys under $50 on Amazon are actually some of the worst. Many are from no-name brands and aren’t made to the same standards as products from established sex-tech companies such as LELO, Doc Johnson, Tantus, or Aneros, among others.
Fortunately, there’s still a way to shop for affordable sex toys on Amazon and get items that'll last. For years, I worked as a freelancer covering sex tech for different outlets and tested a variety of products, including the most popular vibrators, lubricants, and more—but along the way, I’ve also tested plenty of duds and I know what to look out for, especially shopping on a budget.
With that in mind, I culled through the best sellers to find these 18 sex toys under $50 that are worth every penny. Each toy is from a leading sex-tech brand, which means you can trust that these products will perform and that the Amazon reviews are legitimate. And, of course, you can get them all delivered discreetly to your door, so only you and your partner (and some random Amazon warehouse employees) will know what happens behind your bedroom door.
1. This oral sex stimulator with more than 6,000 rave reviews
Trying the Satisfyer Pro 2 for the first time was a surreal experience and unlike any other toy I’d ever used before (or, frankly, since). Designed to simulate the sensations of oral sex, this toy works by creating little pressure waves around the clitoris, so it feels like a combination of air blowing on your skin while it’s also sucking it in. The Satisfyer Pro 2 looks like an otoscope—e.g., the thing they check your ears with at the doctor’s office—but it’s a lot more impressive than it might seem at first glance, as it features up to 11 speeds.
With more than 6,000 stellar Amazon reviews, it’s a must-have for the price (and much cheaper than the Womanizer, the other popular—and unfortunately named—oral-sex simulator on the market). Before this toy, I never thought of myself as someone who could have multiple orgasms in a row, but thanks to the Satisfyer Pro 2, not only is it possible, but they’re been some of the most intense that I’ve ever experienced.
2. A silicone dildo with an ultra-powerful suction cup
When it comes to suction-cup dildos, the Colours line by NS Novelties is one of the best kept secrets out there. This toy, which comes in 5-inch and 8-inch varieties, is made from body-safe silicone and makes an excellent beginner option, especially for anyone looking for a waterproof dildo with a powerful suction base. It's available in several bright colors—including blue, pink, and black—but aside from that, it looks and feels like a real penis. As a bonus, the toy is compatible with most strap-on harnesses (I’ve used it with my Aslan Jaguar harness and had no issues), which gives it a little extra versatility compared to other dildos at this price.
3. This c-ring that’s hypoallergenic and really stretchy
C-rings don’t always seem to get the same kind of love as flashier, more tech-oriented toys do these days, but they’re a useful option to have in a goody drawer, and these super-soft ones from Tantus are a steal for the price. Made from stretchy, supple silicone, this c-ring has a broad band for added comfort around the penis and is naturally hypoallergenic, meaning it’s safe to use on sensitive skin. It’s also dishwasher-safe, so unlike some toys that can be a hassle to clean, this one is a cinch.
4. The most legendary wand vibrator ever invented
Even people who don’t know much about sex tech have heard about the Hitachi Magic Wand. It’s been around since the late 1960s and although it was technically designed for soothing muscle aches, it shot to fame as the first of its kind: A reliable, ultra-powerful wand vibrator that sounds like a lawn mower might be going off under your sheets, but that’s also guaranteed to get you going, full stop.
All these years—and a change in ownership later, as the product isn’t even made by Hitachi anymore—the legend holds up. While debate rages over which is better, the corded or cordless version (personally, I’ve always been pro-corded for the sheer mind-numbing power of it), one thing everyone can agree on is that the Hitachi Magic Wand is the cornerstone of any good sex toy collection.
5. A prostate stimulator that’ll intensify orgasms
Aneros has been around for years—in fact, the company makes the world’s first dedicated maker of prostate massagers. The Classic MGX Prostate Stimulator is its flagship. It’s about 4 inches long in insertable length, made from body-safe plastic, and is relatively easy to maneuver, especially for beginners. Previous partners have loved it because of its thin, flexible size, which is less daunting than some other options. Over the years, prostate massagers have become more popular in the sex toy industry, but for anyone who’s curious or hasn’t ventured too much into this realm, this Aneros is a great starter option.
6. This silicone lubricant with near-perfect reviews
Silicone lubricants offer a lot of benefits: They last longer than other lubes, have a higher viscosity (meaning they’re extra slippery), and for certain types of play, they can reduce friction. But not all silicone lubes are created equal, and one in particular is in a class all is own. Uberlube has a major cult following on Amazon, with reviewers raving that it’s ultra-silky, lasts forever, and is gentle on sensitive skin. One of the things I love the best is its easy-to-use pump, which makes dispensing the perfect amount a very quick process. While Uberlube is on the more expensive side compared to some lubes, it’s well worth the investment. Word to the wise though: Silicone lubes aren’t compatible with silicone toys—it’ll completely ruin them—so you should avoid this and all other silicone lubes if you’re considering using them with toy-based play.
7. A glass plug that’s virtually unbreakable
For anyone excited about temperature play, glass toys can be a fun little way to mix things up. You can chill them in the freezer and use them to explore your partner’s erogenous zones or your own. Worried that glass near your most private areas sounds like a recipe for disaster? Don’t be. Made from borosilicate glass—the stuff Pyrex is made out of—they’re incredibly durable and not likely to break any time soon. The Pipedream Icicles line is full of fun choices, including wands, dildos, and anal plugs like No. 48, which is one of the most top-rated on Amazon. As glass toys are nonporous and hypoallergenic, they’re one of the safest toys you could play with, and reviewers say they love the fullness they feel from using it.
8. This two-in-one vibrator that’s an impressive value
Most sex toys that cost $10 are probably garbage—sorry. But CalExotics is the exception to that rule, as this brand specializes in super-affordable toys that are decent quality and surprisingly resilient. This vibrator is little but makes a big impression. It’s ideal for clitoral and G-spot stimulation, and it has three built-in speeds, so you can alternate to find the perfect intensity just for you. The butterfly side is cute, but also works as a tickler. For anyone who’s just starting to build their sex-tech collection, this cheap but durable vibe is an excellent choice.
9. A discreet stroker that’s more versatile than it seems
Tenga Eggs are kind of amazing. True, I’m not a human with a penis, so I’m not the target audience for this masturbator toy, which is shaped like a palm-sized egg and features a silicone insert with molded grooves and studs for increased friction. But all the same, I love them because they make a great sleeve attachment for my Hitachi Magic Wand, as I can pull one over the wand head and use it the same way I would any other kind of attachment. Bonus: While Tengas aren’t normally reusable because they’re designed to catch body fluids, just using one as a sleeve over the head of my wand means I’ve been able to reuse them many times.
Compared to other leading toys in the stroker category (namely, the Fleshlight), Tenga Eggs are an inexpensive, fun little pick, and this set of six even comes in an egg container. What’s not to love about that?
10. This set of bejeweled plugs that are great for backdoor play
If you’ve never tried stainless steel or chrome-plated toys before, let this set of stunning—and shockingly inexpensive—bejeweled anal plugs be your entry point. Similar to glass toys, metal offers a sense of fullness that people really enjoy, especially for anal play. With this set of three, which come in a variety of eye-catching hues, you can ease into exploring, as the plugs are graduated in size. As a warning, the largest is rather big (and still a bit too intimidating for yours truly), but these make for a nice investment, and they look a lot more expensive than they are.
11. This water-based lube that’s so smooth, you’ll think it’s silicone
I’m a big fan of silicone lubes for the reasons I stated earlier: They last a long time, they’re slicker, and most of all, they tend to have a more lightweight feel than water-based, oil, or hybrid lubes. But there’s no denying that water-based lubes are the workhorse of the lubricant world, and having one around helps, especially for extended toy play—they’re compatible with all toys, including silicone ones.
If you’re shopping for a water-based lube, this one from LELO is a must-have. It glides on almost as smoothly as a silicone would. Even better? It doesn’t leave behind any tacky residue, which is one of the biggest pitfalls of most water-based lube options. I started using this recently, and it’s the best one I’ve ever tried. It also comes in a sleek, subtle container and could easily be mistaken for a moisturizer or beauty product on your nightstand, which adds to the charm.
12. A bullet vibrator that’ll blend right in with your makeup bag
What surprised me most while testing this little bullet vibrator was how powerful it got. At just over $12, this discreet vibe is fun for a giggle or two and was designed for on-the-go use, so you can take it anywhere. It’s not the most exciting toy around—that’s to say, it has one great use, and that’s clitoral stimulation—but it performs really well for the price. And it’s discreet: It has a soft, flexible tip that looks, at quick glance, like the top of any old standard tube lipstick.
13. This cotton rope that’s gentle on skin
For bondage lovers, finding good rope on a budget is a real challenge. While there are plenty of fabrics to choose from—jute, hemp, and bamboo are popular picks among seasoned riggers—this cotton rope from Doc Johnson is a great deal for this price. For under $15, you get a 32-foot length that reviewers say is flexible and offers moderate friction, but doesn’t chafe or irritate sensitive skin. While not ideal for suspension work, it’s a good choice for rope beginners or anyone trying to save a little extra without skimping on quality. But, as always, be sure to grab a pair of EMT shears, just in case.
14. A strap-on harness that’s great for all body types
Strap-on play is becoming an increasingly popular way for couples to explore consensual power exchange and other forms of kink. But finding an adjustable harness that won’t break the bank, is easy to put on, and fits most body types comfortably is a tall order. Sportsheets is the maker of what I like to describe as gateway harnesses—that’s to say, these are strap-on harnesses that don’t cost a ton and can give the wearer a sense of whether they like pegging before investing in a pricier model. This one has a four-star rating on Amazon and comes with a sturdy metal O-ring, which can fit dildos with a flared base up to 1.5 inches in diameter. Because of its thong-style strappiness, many reviewers say it’s ultra-comfy and lightweight to wear, too.
15. This silicone dildo that pegging newbies will love
That new strap-on harness you’re getting from Sportsheets? You’ll need a dildo to go with it. But starting out with a larger, hyper-realistic one could put potential partners off. Not to mention, using a harness comes with learning curves that may take time to master. That’s why starting off slow with a small, simple dildo like this one from Tantus is a great call. Made from silicone with a flared base, this hypoallergenic option offers a mostly frictionless experience and can help both you and your partner build confidence together while venturing into this type of play for the first time.
16. This set of kegel exercise balls to increase pelvic floor strength
Kegel exercises help strengthen your pelvic floor, which in turn can help support vaginal health and lead to better, stronger, and more satisfying orgasms. While you could do simple clench-and-release exercises throughout the day, these kegel exercise balls from LELO are another terrific way to get your daily exercises out of the way. Whether you’re looking to increase the intensity of your orgasms or give your muscles down below a boost after giving birth, these Ben Wa balls get the job done, and reviewers say they feel comfortable wearing them throughout the day as well.
17. A double-sided dildo that’s fun for couples
At 12 inches in length, this double-sided dildo from Doc Johnson is a dream for couples who want to spice things up in the bedroom. It’s made from body-safe PVC that's latex-free, so it’s fine for those with that allergy. While some reviewers claim it has a rubbery smell at first, others say that washes away after a cleaning or two and this toy is worth the buy.
18. An oh-so-soft vibe that you’ll just want to squeeze
You’re doing yourself a disservice buying this battery-operated vibrator from Iroha online, but that’s because the pictures don’t do it justice. Super-soft and squeezable, this battery-operated vibrator is so touchable that you’d want to try it based on its texture alone. Because it’s waterproof, it’s great for tub use, so don’t be afraid to take it in with you for those moments when you need some special alone time.
