Our Top 10 Favorite Kinky Toys: When Whips, Chains, and Pain Aren’t Your Thing — Part 1

As cheesy as it sounds, BDSM is like a diamond. There are so many facets to it.

It’s not just about hardcore leather, pain, and punishment. And we’re going to show you how you can get your BDSM on using different implements and toys so that you get introduced to a wide range ideas…where you can make an informed decision as to what you like or don’t like. After all, you don’t know what you don’t know, right?

The best BDSM toys are the most versatile ones. It means you get to keep coming up with creative and fun ways to utilize them as time goes on. Our list also consists of toys that are easy to get, with many that already have at home.

If you’re forced to buy expensive toys that you don’t know how to use…you’re going to be stuck with analysis paralysis, which will lead to frustration, inaction, and ultimately abandonment. And we don’t want that for you whatsoever. Our goal is to make BDSM fun, easy, and accessible for you, especially if you’re a beginner.

What’s really fun about our favorite toys is that you can combine multiple items together, so keep that in mind as you go through the list.

Without further ado, our first 5 of our top 10 favorite BDSM toys (in no particular order):

Feathers

BDSM is more than just bondage, dominance, submission, sadism, and masochism. At the end of the day, it’s about engaging your mind and all your senses. What better way to dive into sensation play than with a harmless feather, right? Oh, feathers could get cruel, especially when you’re running it on your partner’s ticklish spots. Or, to heighten arousal, run it on your partner’s sensitive spots.

Blindfolds

Sensory deprivation is a very common practice in BDSM play. When you dull or restrict one of your senses, the others heighten to compensate for it. The easiest way to implement this sensation is through a blindfold. You don’t even have to use a completely blacked-out blindfold if that sounds intimating. Something that will limit your vision some will work perfect. You don’t have to buy a blindfold if you can use other things: a sleep mask, scarves, your hands, towels, or t-shirts.

Dildos

Pretty self-explanatory, right? Having kinky sex is not without its immense pleasures! We also want to point out that it is possible to be allergic to silicone dildos, the most common and cost-effective material out there in sex-toy land. Our dear friend, Rebecca Graves, started a ceramic sex-toy line, Big Rooster Pottery, to address this exact reason. We want things on re, not your hooch. Head on over and use the code DLBFUN to receive 20% off and free shipping on all your dildo purchases. Speaking from many personal experiences, they are amazing.

Ice cubes

Like feathers, sensation play with temperature is one of the most unexpected things you can do to your partner. Run the ice cubes on your partner’s body in places that are sensitive, ticklish, or just plain fun. Or, suck on the ice cube to get your mouth and tongue nice and cold.

Ribbons

Nothing spells beginners bondage like ribbons. Confession: us “pros” use them, too #allthetime. Ribbons are a great way to get used to the sensation of being bound. They’re lightweight and easy to store away. Also, have a pair of scissors handy, in case you need to cut the ribbon out quickly. We recommend buying ribbons with at least 5/8”.
