Until recently, many Southern and some Great Plains states banned the sale of sex toys completely, either directly or through laws regulating "obscene devices". In 1999, William H. Pryor, Jr., an assistant attorney general in Alabama commenting on a case involving sex toys and discussing to what end the devices are used, was quoted as saying there is no "fundamental right for a person to buy a device to produce orgasm". A federal appeals court upheld Alabama's law prohibiting the sale of sex toys on Valentine's Day, 2007.
Shopping for adult toys can be overwhelming and intimidating for those new to pleasure play. From the very simple to the very bizarre, there are a lot of products on the market to sort through. But don’t let fear of the unknown keep you from enriching your sex life. To help you get your feet wet (amongst other things), we’ve created a list of the top 10 adult toys currently available through Amazon.
Want to show off your curves in some sexy lingerie? Look no further. From dreamy romance, sultry seductress to sweet and sensual, we have a variety of must-haves like corsets, chemises, babydolls and bodystockings. These aren't just frivolous frilly items, either; they help set just the right passionate mood. Who can resist black lace or a racy red robe? When you put on an item like a teddy, you're probably not wearing it to the grocery store; changing into sensual attire is a great way to start a sensual night at home. Another option is a fantasy dress-up costume. You can take on a hot role for the night and tap into a new persona. After all, good sex isn't just about orgasms (though we love those, too!). It's about feeling comfortable in your skin and living out your desires. Women Vibrators
Dildos are obliquely referred to in Saul Bellow's novel The Adventures of Augie March (1953): "....he had brought me along to a bachelor's stag where two naked acrobatic girls did stunts with false tools". A dildo called Steely Dan III from Yokohama appears in the William S. Burroughs novel The Naked Lunch (1959). The rock band Steely Dan took their name from it. Male Strapons

Glass and steel dildos have similar features. In most cases, glass toys are solid, and made of Pyrex or other types borosilicate glass (Schott-Duranglas and Simax), although their construction can vary depending on the manufacturer. Like steel, glass toys may be used to apply firmer pressure than silicone can to a female's G-spot (urethral sponge) or a male's prostate gland. Unlike other types of toys, glass sex toys can also be personalized with inscriptions.
Some of the first sex dolls were invented by Dutch sailors in the seventeenth century who would be isolated at sea during long voyages. These masturbatory dolls, referred to by the French as dame de voyage and by the Spanish as dama de viaje, were made of sewn cloth or old clothes and were a direct predecessor to today's sex dolls. The Dutch sold some of these dolls to Japanese people during the Rangaku period, and the term "Dutch wives" is still sometimes used in Japan to refer to sex dolls. Sex Toy Shop
Sex dolls, also called blow-up dolls, are male sex toys that offer the sensation of penetrating a live partner. Nearly life-size, these sex dolls have openings in all the traditional places: mouth, vagina, and anus, so you can penetrate every orifice to your heart’s content. Some models are even equipped with large egg vibrators to increase stimulation and maximize your orgasms. Bullet Toys
The Magic Wand is known as the "Cadillac of Vibrators" for a reason. It's powerful and if you're looking for a sure way to get off, it's likely your best bet. The magic wand can also be used for super freaky fun with a partner. If one partner has a clit, the other can take the magic wand into their hands and control the on and off button. This can lead to some dominance and submission play. The handle also works wonders to add to penetrative sex and help the partner with a clit get off. Cheaper Sex Toys
This attachment fits over the head of your electric toothbrush and transforms it into a discreet but powerful external vibrator.

This silicone anal toy from B-Vibe is small enough for beginners, so it will feel good but won't hurt. If your partner has a vagina, have her wear it during vaginal sex for extra intensity, or to warm up for anal sex. If you have a prostate, enjoy the vibrations (oh yes, it vibrates) during sex, or a nice old-fashioned hand job to take your orgasm to the next level. (Side note: Using a water-based lube is recommended as silicone lube can break down silicone toys.)

The most expensive sex dolls (approximately $1,200 and up) are usually made from silicone (usually above $3,000 at 2016 prices) or thermoplastic elastomer known as TPE (below $3,000). Dolls made of either material can be very lifelike, with faces and bodies modeled on real people in some instances, with realistic skin material (similar to that used for movie special effects), and with realistic (or even real) hair. These dolls usually have an articulated PVC or metal skeleton with flexible joints that allows them to be positioned in a variety of positions for display and for sexual acts. Silicone or TPE dolls are much heavier than vinyl or latex inflatable ones (which consist mostly of air), but are roughly half the weight of a real human being of comparable size.

In the state of New South Wales (NSW) sex shops cannot trade at street level and are required to trade above or below ground. Under NSW law, non-contraceptive sex products can be sold only in shops that have been granted a restricted premise licence by local councils. Nevertheless, by 2013 a number of NSW lingerie stores had begun selling adult toys and books in shopping malls without being granted a licence. Sex Shop Bondage
The Hitachi Magic Wand is referred to as the "Cadillac of vibrators" for a reason. It's big, it's powerful, and it's reliable. Originally created to relax muscles, the wand quickly gathered a cult following as a vibrator for its undeniable ability to relax people (especially those with clits) in other ways. While the sex toy works wonders for solo play, it's fun to use in a relationship to help a partner with a vagina reach orgasm during penetrative sex. For those into BDSM, the magic wand is often used by the dominant on the submissive partner to bring the sub to orgasm while they're bound or tied up. Sex Toy
