Who knew that shopping for affordable and inclusive sex toys would be harder than taking a standardized test? A lack of comprehensive sex ed in schools and tip-toeing around the subject from our parents has led to a lot of misinformation and taboo surrounding masturbation and sexual health. So if you’re in need of a little validation, let it be from us: masturbating should be fun!

But with so many fun and safe ways to get down and dirty, why is it so difficult to find products under $100?

We know that not everyone has the cash to spend too much on toys, but everyone does deserve to explore and have fun with their body. With the overwhelming amount of products on the market, it’s okay if you don’t know where to start because here at Shifter, we’ve got your back … and your front.

Whether you’re enjoying some time alone or spending it with a partner, we’ve pulled together some great affordable sex toys so you can get the bang for your buck… literally.

1. Lovehoney Butt Tingler

The great thing about anal is that everyone has the necessary hardware, if you know what we mean. With a slender point and an easily accessible handle, this inclusive and versatile little butt plug is great for both beginners and experts. For only $24.99, you get 10 different functions to play with.

2. Doc Johnson Adjustable Silicone Cock Ring

This cock ring is a great addition for trans men experiencing growth in genitalia from testosterone. The silicone gives the area a snug grip while the beads tighten so the ring doesn’t slip off. After reading a few reviews, the consensus is that the product enlarges the genitalia and helps with penetration.

3. Better Love Blowfish Clitoral Stimulator

Two for the price of one! This double-ended clitorial stimulator comes with two sides: one uses suction and the other mimics a tongue. What more could you need? With reviews raving about “toe-curling” orgasams that have users “seeing stars,” it’s a relief that this palm sized vibrator is so affordable.

4. Ohnut


Albeit the most expensive product on our list, the Ohnut could be worth spending the extra dollars. This silicone-based sex toy acts as a great buffer in controlling the depth of penetration, making it extremely helpful for post-operative trans women to eliminate painful sensations during sex. It also slides easily onto a dilator.

5. Secret Lover Bullet Vibrator

On the go? This pocket-sized hidden gem is perfect for more discrete needs. Disguised as an adorable lipstick, no one would ever guess that something so small would pack such a powerful punch.

6. Tracey Cox Supersex Supertight Clear Stroker

While most strokers or fleshlights are well over $100, this clear, textured penis sleeve with a ribbed interior allows you to experience the same heightened orgasms. Because of its open end, the Tracy Cox Supersex Supertight Clear Stroker can fit all sizes and be a great addition to partnered oral sex.

You might think there’s no need for a pricey sex toy when you have a partner — or hands — but there are many advantages to broadening your horizons. While orgasms are definitely the selling point, toys can also help you discover new desires and ideas you might be hesitant to explore. So go on, pick something from our list and get your freak on.
