Valentine’s Day is the most romantic holiday of the yearwhich means hundreds if not thousands of discreetly packaged sex toys will soon be arriving on the doorsteps of lovers nationwide. Offering a temporary––and long overdue––respite from the monotony of life in isolation.
According to the personal finance company, Bankrate, Americans collectively plan to spend $27.4 billion in gifts this year, representing an increase of 32% from last year. According to prior figures reported by the National Retail Federation. Additional data says Americans anticipate spending around $142 on a Valentine’s Day gift this year. Yet people expect to receive gifts that cost quite a bit more, around $201.
Despite this awkward discrepancy, RIDE has put together a very sexy compilation of gifts for all price points to give your partner, a pal, or yourself, since we could all use a little extra love after the year we’ve had.
If you don’t have a special someone this year (scratch that, even if you do), treat your cock to a new stroker this Valentine’s Day. As RuPaul says: If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you going to love somebody else?
As someone who was once outspoken about my distaste for strokers. The Zero Tolerance Different Strokes Dual Vibrating Stroker. Is responsible for my first stroker orgasm and I’ve since been forever changed. The stroker’s dual vibrators. One for the head of the penis and one for the shaft edged me in such a deeply satisfying way that when I came I almost blew a hole through the wall. This is all to say the stroker is legit.
If your partner is a little too hung for comfort and penetration can be painful for uncomfortable. The OhNut aims to fix that. Similar to a cock ring. The OHNUT is a skin-like buffer that is worn on the penis to limit the depth of penetration. The set contains four rings that can be used together or individually, whichever offers the most pleasurable depth. Worth noting: After hearing consumer feedback, the brand recently released a wider version of their product for girthier bedfellows.
Released just in time for Valentine’s Day, Kiva Confections’ newest addition. Love Sauce combines lickable dark chocolate with 10mg of THC per serving. This is the edible brand’s first foray into cannabis-infused body chocolate and, as unique as it sounds. Is nothing compared to their cannabis-infused turkey gravy, which launched around Thanksgiving in 2019. If you’re not keen on licking chocolate off your partner’s hairy chest this Valentine’s Day. you can experience similar effects via their chocolate bars, gummies, and other chocolate-covered confections.
Newsflash: toilet paper and wet wipes irritate your bum and otherwise aren’t great for a host of different disconcerting reasons (more about that here). But sometimes––say, when you’re camping––you don’t have access to the beloved bidet you’ve installed in your home. The discreet and collapsable TUSHY Travel was created for such occasions. Just fill the TUSHY Travel with clean water, find your desired angle, squeeze, and wash all your poops away. It’s as simple as that. It may not be the most romantic gift, but it’s a useful one nonetheless.
As a lube brand, we understand there are few things as delicious as a well-lubed asshole. But what often happens is that lube is applied to just the cock and the hole, but not inside the hole. Our bums don’t lubricate themselves, so any effort to lube everywhere the penis or toy touches is wise and considerate. The lube applicator set from b-Vibe contains three syringe-like “lube launchers” (so you can use them solo, with a partner, or even with two partners). And in addition to offering comfort, helps prevent messy bed sheets. Which, as everyone who uses lube knows, can be an absolute bitch to clean.
Our Christmas gift guide was very much about the butt. Which is why another stroker is making the cut this time around. The Manta is an incredible stroker that offers a sensation as unique as its appearance. The stroker’s wings are curved and made of pliable, body-safe silicone. Hugging and stimulating your penis via 12 different speeds and patterns. Given its unique shape, the Manta is incredibly versatile. And can be used as a cock ring, to stimulate the testicles, and to stimulate the P-spot by running it along your perineum.
This might sound like an odd gift, but it all depends on who you’re buying for and whether or not you’re the jealous type. An OnlyFans subscription is the gift that keeps on giving––provided the model or porn star you’re subscribed to posts regularly. Most accounts cost anywhere from $10 or $20 a month. So you can mix or match different models, or subscribe to one particular model for several months to a full year.
There’s no such thing as enough lube and a quality bottle of the best there is, never goes unappreciated. Since you’re here, you already know that no brand does lube quite like RIDE. So give the gift of great sex this Valentine’s Day with the RIDE collection. Including our latest collaboration with the one and only Rocco Steele.
