A sex toy is any object or device that is primarily used for human sexual stimulation. In most cases, sex toys are used for masturbation (alone or with a partner), but they can also be used during sexual intercourse.

There are sex toys for men and sex toys for women, and some that can be used for both genders.

Sex toys are used to stimulate the genitals or other erogenous zones such as the anus or breasts. Common examples of sex toys are dildos, vibrators, artificial vaginas, cock rings, Ben Wa balls, butt plugs, and anal beads. The latter two are examples of anal sex toys.

Bigger machines are sex machines (also known as "fucking machines", see also Sybian) and "milking machines" such as the Venus 2000.

BDSM and sex toys[edit]

Sex toys are very popularly used in BDSM, e.g. for forced orgasm.

BDSM toys (e.g. nipple clamps), bondage equipment, spanking furniture and spanking implements can also be considered sex toys when they are used for erotic play.


When a normal household item is used as a BDSM or sex toy, it is called a pervertible. See homemade sex toys and pervertibles.
