6 of the Most Beautiful Non-Realistic Sex Toys
If 'beautiful' is not the first word that springs to mind when you think about sex toys, I can't say I'm surprised. 'Sexy' – I understand. 'Orgasmic' – makes total sense. 'Better give that a wipe over when I'm done' – yes, you most certainly should.
However, sex toys can be objects of beauty. Some toys are made from glass or steel, sporting clean lines and elegant silhouettes. These exude a classic kind of beauty. Others are brightly coloured and almost abstract, instantly capturing your attention not unlike some forms of modern art.
(Note: If you think I'm making a rather tenuous link, just Google 'Princess X' by Constantin Brancusi, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century. There is no way you can tell me he wouldn't have been a loyal fan of Lovehoney!)
It's true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, I've gathered six of the most beautiful, non-realistic sex toys here for you to behold (but, of course, the human form is beautiful too!).
Ethereal, and almost oceanic in its appearance, the Icicles No 24 Tentacles Glass Dildo is tantalising.
Made of hand-blown glass, this petite dildo is curved to maximise stimulation. Temperature responsive, and compatible with all lubricants, this work of art can be used for both vaginal and anal play.
Its soft pink hue and delightful ridges are evidence of the craftmanship involved in its production, but if the thought of tentacles doesn't tempt you, Icicles create lots of stunning glass sex toys so that you can find a design that does.
This vibe may look like a 1970s abstract sculpture, but its vibrations are entirely from the future!
Proving that a thing of beauty is a joy forever, the Red Hot Silicone Tongue Vibrator is reminiscent of a flame – which is highly appropriate, considering the passion this toy will undoubtedly ignite.
This sizzling red vibe is extremely sleek, and much of its beauty is derived from its simplistic design. The tapered tip mimics a flickering tongue, so you can enjoy the sensation of oral sex during a solo session, and because it's made of silicone, it's velvety soft as well.
Rose gold made a huge comeback in 2017, and it's here to stay!
Take this luxurious, warm colour, bring it into the bedroom – and the result is a set of captivating Entice Tiered Intimate Rose Gold Nipple Clamps.
A striking tiered chain connects the crocodile clips, giving you added weight with which to achieve your preferred type of pinch.
Draping over you or your lover like fine jewellery, and complementing all complexions, these adjustable nipple clamps are the crème de la crème of sensory play.
Although clear glass is stunning enough on its own, it's even prettier with a hint of colour. Enter the Lovehoney Amethyst Sensual Glass Butt Plug.
Translucent rings of mauve and periwinkle blue surround the bulb, creating a beautiful oil-in-a-puddle effect. The length allows for shallow insertion, and the bulb's girth is satisfying.
The Lovehoney Amethyst Sensual Glass Butt Plug is ideal for anal play enthusiasts who enjoy the finer things in life.
The words 'a luxurious spanking' may seem a little strange, but in this case, they're accurate, as the Fifty Shades Freed Cherished Collection Leather and Suede Paddle is quite possibly the most gorgeous-looking paddle to grace the market.
Every feature of this sub's dream has been meticulously designed. The ornate handle comes in chic rose-gold. You can use the leather side for a louder, firm slap. Then turn over, and use the soft suede side for a heavy thwack, or to soothe stinging skin.
The paddle is triple layered and oversized, giving the Dom in your life substantial power, and to top it all off, it's delivered to you in a velveteen bag.
Talk about the lap of luxury (or, rather, being bent over it).
This one is for the experienced cock-ring connoisseurs amongst us!
1.75 inches in diameter, and weighing in at an impressive 163 grams, this DOMINIX Deluxe Cock Ring can deliver rock-hard results.
The nickel-free stainless steel, which is temperate responsive, gives smooth curves and irresistible shine.
These factors, coupled with the rigidity of the ring itself, make for a work of art that is both beautiful and functional.
If you're new to the world of sex toy shopping, it can be reassuring to know that sex toys are not necessarily the overly graphic things that you may imagine them to be. Sex is beautiful, and therefore the tools we use to enhance sex can be beautiful too.
