Black Friday and Cyber Monday season might bring to mind discounts on kitchen gadgets, clothes, big-screen TVs, and microwaves, but it’s also a surprisingly good time to snag deals on sex tech. It’s not exactly a category you’ll see splashed across the pages of a big box store’s print advertisements, but if you know where to look, you can find some great sex toy deals. Here’s what we found so far—these are gadgets the WIRED Gear Team has personally tested and vetted.
We test products year-round and handpicked these deals. The discount amounts we show are based on actual street prices at retailers in the past few months. Products that are sold out or no longer discounted as of publishing will be crossed out. We’ll update this guide periodically.
The Dame Pom has been one of our top vibrator picks (8/10, WIRED Recommends) for a couple of years now, and it’s not often that it comes down in price. This semi-squishy vibrator is small enough to fit in your palm, covered in a super-soft silicone shell, and has a raised ridge for delivering targeted stimulation. This is one of the few vibrators that works really well, no matter what genitalia you have.
The Dame Arc is an internal vibrator, with an exterior shell of soft silicone, a curved body, and a broad, soft head. It’s angled to deliver stimulation directly to the internal structures of the clitoris (the G-spot), and the broad head makes those vibrations feel rumbly and diffused instead of buzzy and targeted. It’s a great pick for anyone looking for an internal vibrator, but the head is a bit wide, so use plenty of lube.
The Dip is a small, discreet vibrator that fits easily in one hand. It’s soft on the outside, it has a semi-tapered tip, and like the Pom it features a raised ridge along one side. The tip and the side ridge are great for delivering targeted stimulation that’s as intense as you want it to be. During testing writer Jaina Grey found that this is another one that works well with every body, and all genitalia.
The Dame Com is one of our top-rated wand vibrators for good reason (8/10 WIRED Recommends). It provides the power and broad external stimulation you expect from a wand-style vibrator, but it also features a slightly angled head curved to fit your body. The vibration is powerful enough to actually use as a muscle massager but still gentle enough to use as a sex toy. They’re rumbly and deep and the exterior is coated in a silicone that’s soft to the touch but just grippy enough to stay put in your hand.
It’s not for everyone, but if you’re in the market for a Sybian-style machine, this one is a good pick. During testing, WIRED reviewer Eric Ravenscraft found the Motorbunny Buck (8/10, WIRED Recommends) to be a fun—if sometimes loud—machine to have on hand. A typical Sybian-style machine features a vibrating saddle that the user straddles and grinds against, and the Buck can definitely be that, but it can also thrust. You can affix it with a variety of attachments and use it for penetrative play in addition to external vibration.
MysteryVibe’s Crescendo 2 is a flexible vibrator with six internal motors, one in each joint section. It’s easily the most flexible vibrator we’ve tested, and it’s also one of the best. The motors are as gentle or powerful as you want them to be and you can tune their intensity and pattern from the app. You can even set it to vibrate to music! It’s extremely versatile, providing deep rumbly vibrations when used for internal or external use on any and all genitalia.
The Poco is like a tiny version of the Crescendo 2. It only has two internal motors, but that’s still quite a few for such a small vibrator. It fits in the palm of your hand and has two joints so it’s also pretty bendy. The internal motors provide a more buzzy sensation than the Crescendo 2, but that’s not a bad thing—it’s just a bit of a different sensation. The buttons are easily identifiable by touch when in use (or when you’re in a dark room), which is always a plus. Like the Crescendo 2, the Poco is great for all genitals and erogenous zones.
Unbound’s Nudge is a slim little butt plug and it’s our number-one pick for anyone just starting out with anal play. It’s small enough to accommodate most beginners, has a sturdy flared base that keeps it safe and snug, and it features a nice gentle taper.
Lelo’s Ina 3 is a rabbit, a V-shaped vibrator that provides both internal and external stimulation at the same time, and it handles that double duty beautifully. I found the internal part of the rabbit tends to be a bit wide for some partners to comfortably use, but if you’re looking for a real feeling of fullness and internal pressure, the Ina 3 is a good pick. The external arm of the Ina 3 is flexible so it naturally fits into position over the clitoris when in use.
The Bender is a flexible vibrator designed for internal use, but because you can shape it to your body, it’s also great for external use. It’s waterproof so you can take it in the bath as well. It’s not as powerful as a wand vibrator but the vibes are buzzy and intense, and it’s blissfully quiet.
Air Pulse Toy Deals
A mainstay of our Best Sex Toys guide, Lelo’s Sila is a suction toy with a wide mouth, narrow body, and small overall profile. It’s quiet when it’s in use, but it’s also not as powerful as you might expect or want. WIRED writer Louryn Strampe says the Sila provides a nice slow build with a big and satisfying payoff. If you’re looking for a quicker orgasm, there are other suction toys we recommend, but for anyone who’s a fan of a nice gentle ramp-up, the Sila is a great pick.
Dame’s Aer is a suction toy. It uses air pressure to simulate the gentle sucking sensation you experience during oral sex, and it does a pretty good job at that. The body is coated in a soft but grippy silicone, and the mouth is wide enough to accommodate small erogenous zones of all types (clitoris, nipples, frenulum, etc).
Using air pulses to simulate the sucking sensation of oral sex, Satisfyer’s Pro 2 Gen 3 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is the quintessential suction toy. The silicone mouth is soft to the touch and about as wide around as the tip of my thumb, small enough to fit over sensitive erogenous zones like the clitoris, nipples, or frenulum, but also broad enough that the experience isn’t too intense. It also provides vibration as a sort of background stimulation which can definitely take things to another level.
The Satisfyer Penguin has always held a special place in my heart. It’s such a wonderful example of form and function coming together to help you, well, do the same. The Penguin is a small suction toy shaped like a penguin, with a detachable little bowtie. It’s less powerful overall than the Pro 2 Gen 3, but it’s plenty powerful enough to get the job done. And this is the holiday edition! It comes with an adorable (and removable) little Santa hat—a perfect gift for someone close in your life.
Lube and Accessory Deals

This is one of our favorite water-based lubes. The bottle is textured so it doesn’t get super slippery even if you have lube on your hands, and the pump nozzle dispenses just enough lube in each pump. We prefer pumps that err on the side of less rather than more because you can always just pump it a couple extra times to get more lube out, but if it spits too much in your hand it can get messy. This little bottle avoids that entirely. The lube is slippery without a sticky finish—it’s smooth and viscous enough that you don’t need to use much at a time.
I was skeptical of this one before I tried it. Now that I have, though, I want to sing its praises any chance I get. It’s a relatively simple little stool with flexible bands that you can sit on in a variety of positions, which deliberately leave some of your most sensitive anatomy exposed. You can do a lot of things with this chair, but most of all it’s just nice to have something that can make more elaborate sex acts or bondage scenes feel more comfortable—there can be an awful lot of standing or kneeling, and this chair helps alleviate that.
Updated November 24: We added the Lovehoney Bondage Chair, Satisfyer Pro 2 Gen 3, and Satisfyer Penguin Holiday Edition, and checked prices throughout.
