The 10 Best Sex Toys You Can Buy Right Now – As Voted By You!

Let's be friends!

The books we're reading, the vibrators we're using, the rants we're having and more in our weekly EDM.

Bondage, butt stuff, and bullets, oh my! New Zealand’s favourite sex toys and sexual wellness products have been revealed, providing insight into what Kiwis are enjoying in the bedroom. Adulttoymegastore, the country’s largest online adult retailer (and partner of Capsule) has shared its top-selling toys for the year and the regions that have purchased the most – and Kaikohe, you HAVE been busy! Here’s the definitive list of best sex toys in NZ.

So, this year’s top 10 features some predictable favourites like the Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation, which has been the country’s best-seller for the third consecutive year (and it’s a WELL DESERVED title, trust us) as well as some that have never-featured-before, such as a remote-controlled couples vibrator, a full bondage mattress restraint kit, and a beginner’s butt plug.  

The New Zealand regions where the most sex toys were purchased were Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington, while the smaller towns that saw the largest percentage increase in sex toy sales this year were Kaikohe in Northland, Lincoln in Canterbury, and Warkworth, Auckland.

Nicola Relph, Adulttoymegastore’s owner and operator, says: “It came as no surprise to us to see the Satisfyer Pro 2 take out the number one spot for the third year running—it has become an icon. But Kama by Share Satisfaction is hot on its heels in second place this year.”

“From the top 10 we can see that Kiwis have a couple of preferred brands, including Satisfyer from the United States, and homegrown brand Share Satisfaction. This is the first year we’ve had a full bondage restraint kit in the top 10, which tells us that more Kiwis are experimenting with bondage play, and it’s nice to see a beginner’s butt plug in sixth place, meaning more people are exploring this erogenous zone.

“Overall, the best sex toys NZ includes a nice variety, and we commend New Zealanders for a big year of sexual experimentation and utilising the tools available to them to help take care of their sexual wellbeing, particularly while we were locked down in our bubbles.”
