Sex toy subscription boxes are the best way to have some fun without having to step in a store

It’s honestly cringey af most times you step foot in a sex shop – the employees are usually clueless and unhelpful, and you leave feeling almost dirty about trying to enjoy one of life’s greatest pleasures (Aka sex. Keep up, here).

I’d love to go buy a sex toy in-store without feeling like I was a sex freak or without getting creepily hit on, but that hasn’t happened yet.

So, if there was a website that allowed you to get a great variety of sexual health and pleasure products delivered to your door – including instructions, detailed info, and no lines or employees to deal with – would you use it?

That’s why Cratejoy, a subscription box marketplace, is so great. There are tons of sexual health and pleasure subscription boxes available on the site, including boxes focused towards women, LGBTQ, and more, all at a really low price (aka, there’s something for everyone).

And price is the other big plus with Cratejoy. If I was to go buy a decent vibrator at a store, it would most likely cost me at least $90. With a Cratejoy subscription box, you can get a decent vibrator with like, 6 other items, for as low as $21 with some boxes. I did not hesitate to hop on the subscription train as soon as I found out.

The subscription boxes range from girly to kinky to sweet to raunchy, meaning there’s plenty of brands for you to choose from. Also, some of them are personalized via a unique questionnaire. If you’re a bit more adventurous, go for the ones that send you a random mix. If you know what you want, try the more personalized boxes so you get your money’s worth.

I tested out 3 of the most popular boxes and I let you know if they’re worth it or not.

1. What’s In Your Box?

Price: Starts at $21.00/month.

What You’ll Get: “A subscription curated for women! Every box is a unique and discrete experience filled with products for sexual health and pleasure like toys, washes, lubricants, condoms, lingerie and more. Choose from 1 or 3 month plans; all boxes have a retail value of up to $50.” – What’s In Your Box.

What I Got: A silk wrap (can be used to blindfold, tie, etc), a crystal soap meant to get your senses “in the mood,” a small personal lubricant, a glittery body oil (fun for summer), and a kino chain.

Shipping info: Only ships within the U.S. the first week of each month.

Worth It?: Definitely.

At $21, I got about $50 or more worth of product. I love the silk wrap, because its a comfortable and luxurious way to have some more fun the bedroom. The body oil is fun to use in and out of the bedroom, especially if you need a good bikini shot for Insta (think Fenty Beauty’s body oil vibes).

The lube didn’t add much for me, because I have a brand I love to use, but it’s a fun gift for a friend! The soap didn’t do much but keep me clean, but it smelled good and is a fun and creative add on. The kino chain make it all worth it, and is a really fun, new toy to try out that I had never even heard of. It feels like getting your head scratched but all over your body.

Highly recommend.

This brand also carries the next brand, Unbound Babes, so definitely keep that in mind when weighing your options.

2. Unbound Babes

Price: $65.00/3 months.

What You’ll Get: “If you’re after a tried and tested brand, Unbound has been making high-quality sex toys and lubricants for over 4 years. The monthly boxes include 4 to 7 toys, vibrators, lubes, and body-safe accessories you can’t pass up.” – Unbound Babes.

What I Got: Tether bondage tape (safe, comfortable, and easy to use tape for tying, wearing, gagging, etc), a silicone butt plug, a silicone internal vibrator, g-spot serum (sample size), and a jelly lube (sample size).

Shipping: Ships worldwide immediately after your first order is placed.

Worth It?: I mean, totally.

Personally, I’m not a butt stuff gal, so I gave my butt plug away. But, butt (lol) plugs don’t come cheap. The g-spot serum is clutch, and something I didn’t previously know about. It works, and I’m stoked that I got to try it out. Again, the lube to me is a little useless, but still nice to get it in a travel packet in case I want to get it on #travelstyle.

The tape is really cool, since its tether – it doesn’t stick to your body hair, it’s easy to rip, and it’s a clean and non-painful way to try something kinkier. The internal vibrator is thin and concealable, and it’s great for traveling. Also really great to use during sex with a partner because of its’ size.

Unbound Babe’s products are also just very girly and cute, which makes it a great option if you’re a bit nervous about expanding your collection!

Price: Starts at $69.99/3 months

What You’ll Get: An adult subscription box tailored to your preferences. Choose from 3 different subscription options to get a custom curated box of sex toys and and products designed to spice up your life. Each box is filled with new toys for you to explore, all at up to 40% off retail price.

What I Got: Two satin wraps, chamomile water-based lube (2 ounces), a leather whip, and a medium-sized internal vibrator.

Worth It?: For sure – depending what you’re into.

This box was definitely the kinkiest of the three, so definitely go for Wurkbench if you want to really spice up your life. Not like, American Horror Story kinky, but it’s no pink-branded, cutesy type of box, either. A leather whip is a step above the other boxes on the kinky level – it’s a nicely sized leather whip that’s great for partner play.

The chamomile lube is a really decent size, and still travel ready. I also love the calming smell of the chamomile while using it. It sets the mood in a different way. The vibrator is a great size, especially for someone who is a first-timer or for partner play. The vibrations are strong and it’s easy to travel with.
