Who’s Your Mommy? Five Awesome Sex Toy Gifts for Mothers and Others

So, another Mother’s Day has come and gone, and hopefully you moms out there received something from your kids and partners that made your hearts sing. Once the primary school years have gone, and our supply of macaroni necklaces and popsicle stick picture frames no longer threatens to require a room of its own, or once the kids have grown and left the nest, what gifts we receive for Mother’s Day falls more and more on our partners.

I’ve never been one to be super judgmental when receiving a gift, though there have been the occasional “whatever were you thinking gifts,” but my husband is more likely to buy me lingerie than a leaf blower. If you haven’t been quite as lucky, well, what better a day then today to treat yourself to something that will really make you smile and forget about those lovely new windshield wipers? A brand spanking new sex toy and the orgasms that go along with it make an ideal gift to yourself.

Sex toys come in so many varieties and price ranges that there truly is something out there for everyone. So, without further ado, here are five amazing toys to take you from feeling frazzled to feeling fabulous.

The Bubbly by Toyfriend – A silky smooth silicone vibrator at a great price, this toy will soon become a favorite. The Bubbly may look like Marvin the Martian’s ray gun but once turned on the only rays will be those shining in your eyes as you watch (and later experience) the unique oscillating motion of the tip ball. With just the right curve, two speeds and three pulsation modes, this vibe is ideal for clitoral and g-spot action. It’s also waterproof and quiet making it perfect for a 30 minute tub get-away.

Juno Pelvic Exerciser – I know, I know, the word exercise makes this sound less like a gift and more of a chore but I promise you, it is indeed a gift. My only “problem” with kegel-cisers, typically weighted devices that help strengthen PC muscles, is they make me so horny, after I sexercise (yes, I said that), I have to masturbate. That’s the kind of problem I can live with, especially if it means that I don’t have any unwanted surprises when I decide it’s an awesome day to jump on the trampoline or when I sneeze. Sexual health is nothing to sneeze at, so I rank this high on gifts to give yourselves.

Weighing in at 1.5 pounds and around $100, the njoy Pure Wand may seem like an expensive gift to buy yourself, but consider that it’s stainless steel and will last a lifetime and that many women, myself and the manager of a sex toy boutique I happened upon in Newport, RI this weekend included, have experienced their first g-spot orgasm using this beautifully crafted, elegant and effective sex toy, and well, suddenly the Pure Wand practically pays for itself. All hail njoy!

A super cute and discreet little vibrator that you can take anywhere, Lelo’s Mia satisfies your orgasmic demands and your geek girl side as well. How does it do that you ask? It recharges by plugging into your computer’s USB port! Yes, you can use it in the office ladies room and recharge it at your desk and if anyone asks, well, it’s a fancy ass memory stick.

Do you get off on music and technology? If you do, OhMiBod’s Freestyle vibrator is the sex toy for you. The Freestyle is a wireless music driven vibrator; when its wireless transmitter is connected to an iPod /iPhone (or any mp3 player), the vibe will pulsate to the music giving the user a unique dual sensory experience with ultimate freedom of movement and motion.

While windshield wipers are a necessity, any rainy day will reinforce that fact, so are sexual health and happiness. Don't wait for another Mother's Day to roll around, do something special for yourself right now. Remember, a happy mommy is a good mommy.
