15 Best Sex Toys on a Budget
Finding an effective sex toy on a budget (for purposes of this article, under $50) is possible, but it’s hard to meet the crossroads between a toy that suits a lot of people and performs its specific task very well (and, of course, made of body-safe materials that won’t make the user sick).
- Awesome and affordable sex toys
- Budget-friendly brands to keep an eye on
- Stay up-to-date when I review budget-friendly toys!
I’ve revised and expanded my list. Check out my new (2020) edition, which includes 24 of the best budget toys!
1 Marc Dorcel SO
The Marc Dorcel SO is a 9″ long double-ended silicone dildo with a bulbous head on either side. If you’re looking for a generously sized and versatile G-spot dildo, this is for you. It’s also straight-shafted, making it a great option for those who might find curves too intense.
The big end, 1.75″ wide is filling and firm, pushing and rubbing against my G-spot with practically no effort. The small end, 1.4″ wide, has more give and isn’t great for G-spotting, but during deep penetration puts pressure on my cervix and anterior fornix, and shallow penetration lets the two ridges on the shaft rub against my urethral sponge.
2 Blush Novelties Avant D3 and D4
I credit the Avant D4‘s pronounced coronal ridge for awakening my A-spot. It’s so girthy and boxy that, when I insert the dildo almost all the way in, there’s nowhere else for the ridge to go but against my A-spot. And if I insert behind my cervix to massage it, the bumps down the shaft massage my G-spot too. Both the Avant D3 and D4 are under $50, but the summer-themed Avant D3 costs a bit less.
3 BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy
I’m a total fan girl for BMS Factory and just absolutely head-over-heels for this vibrator. There’s a speed to suit every mood when the vibration range is just so ridiculously good, whether you want a low purr or something higher. I actually thought, “fuck, this goes higher?” when I first ramped up the speed. You can find my full review of the Pillow Talk Sassy here or get one from Peepshow Toys for $39 with coupon code SUPERSMASHCACHE.
4 Blush Novelties Avant Pride P1
This is absolutely perfect for exploring cervical orgasms. It’s soft, fairly slender, and flexible, meaning less likely to irritate your cervix. The bulbous with a slightly flattened head massages my cervix without putting much thought into aiming. Also great for massaging the prostate or A-spot.
5 Chrystalino Champ
The Chrystalino Champ is one of the most versatile toys I’ve ever tried. It’s perfect for sliding behind my cervix to effortlessly massage for deep spot orgasms. And its bulbous and slightly flattened head massage my G-spot without being ridiculously intense. Full review here. Find the Champ at SheVibe for $28.
6Blush Novelties Exposed Nocturnal Bullet
This lipstick-style bullet vibrator is definitely a powerhouse. If you want high-speed vibrations akin to the Hitachi, but more pinpoint and compact, this is for you. Though the Nocturnal Bullet is not as rumbly as the Tango, its highest speed is definitely more powerful. And for literally less than half the price of the Tango, you really can’t beat how budget-friendly the Exposed Nocturnal is.
7 California Exotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Flicker
This toy is a little pricier than some of the other vibrators, but rumblier and well worth it. The orgasms have a degree of explosiveness I don’t expect from a toy not plugged into the wall— a perfect blend between long and strong. In fact, the orgasms are so good that they gave a fellow reviewer an asthma attack. Find my review of the Marvelous Flicker here or get the Marvelous Flicker for $50 at SheVibe.
8 Blush Novelties Temptasia Elvira
This $24 dildo by Blush Novelties is girthy and stout. For some people, that’s enough to get the G-spot. I consider the Temptasia Elvira the “lite” version of one of my favorites, the Avant D4. Their heads are very similarly shaped and, let’s face it: the head one of the most important features when choosing a G-spot toy. Read my full review here or get the Temptasia Elvira for $21.60 at Peepshow Toys.
9 LoveHoney Satisfy Me G
The Lovehoney Satisfy Me G is 7.5″ long, 1.6″ wide, and flexible silicone. One end is bigger and more bulbous for G-spotting, while the other end is slightly slimmer with vertical ridges along its length.
Its combination of moderate girth and silicone body means that it will suit most people, where the Dorcel SO might be too thick or too straight, or a glass toy too rigid. The Satisfy Me G is available in pink at LoveHoney for $29.
10 Jopen Lust L2, L2.5, and L3
The Jopen Lust line includes the rumbliest clitoral vibes I’ve ever tried for the price. These tiny and rechargeable mini vibes are $50. The L2 (available in pink or purple) and L2.5 (pink or green) are curved and ergonomic, while the L3’s shape (purple) is straight and inert enough to pass as a tube of lip balm if someone was just glancing. Overall, they’re discreet and very reasonably priced for something rechargeable and rumbly.
11 Tom of Finland 5-speed
For those looking to “go big or go home” with their sex toys, Tom of Finland offers vibes with 2″ girth at $50. One has a slightly bent shaft with ridges, and another is a series of stacked balls (think anal beads).￼
I don’t expect them to be super powerful, but BIG and body-safe vibrators are a lot harder to find than body-safe slimline vibes. As such, these are awesome for someone looking for girth and texture first, and consider vibration secondary.
12 Blush Novelties Gaia Eco
You can find my full review of the Gaia Eco here. This slimline (1″ wide) vibrator costs only $10 and it’s SO, so rumbly for only taking AA batteries. This makes the Blush Gaia Eco vibrator the perfect option for a first vibrator as you’re learning about what your body likes. It’s literally the best slimline beginner vibrator I’ve ever tried. Oh, and it’s biodegradable; you can take it to a recycling facility to recycle the plastic!
13 Tantus Silk Large
Want a basic, average sized (7″ x 1.5″) thrustable dildo? The Tantus Silk Large was the first toy I acquired that I still own, and it remains a classic. Sleek and simple for those getting used to penetration, but slightly curved and bulged to add a little extra “oomph” and pressure around the cervix during deep penetration. $43 for purple and black options.
14 Picobong Ako Outie Vibe
If you’re willing to shell out $45, the Picobong Ako Outie Vibe features not 4, but 6 speeds options multiplied by 12 patterns, toggled by three buttons on an ergonomic and silicone-covered body. Picobong is a child company of LELO, but features toys that operate on separate batteries, making them an affordable taste of LELO’s luxury for those who don’t need lots of power.
I haven’t personally tried the Ako, but I have enjoyed its longer and insertable counterpart, the Zizo. Thus, I can confirm that the vibrations have enough range to suit most users. However, the shape of the Zizo is not great for G-spotting and the cap pops off too easily for me to recommend for thrusting.
15 Glass Gem Garnet
This glass G-spot dildo features the timelessly effective G-spotting combination of C-curve and a bulbous end. It’s not going to fuck around. The Glass Gem Garnet is not as heavy or steeply curved as the njoy Pure Wand, meaning you might have to put more effort into finding your G-spot if you don’t already know where it is. However, for $25, it’s much more budget- and beginner-friendly.

Tantus: best for silicone dildos and butt basics
Okay, when it comes to harnessable silicone, Tantus rules. Hands down. It’d be too much effort to really explain individually why a bajillion Tantus toys are good. They’re body-safe, overall thoughtfully designed, and made by a super nice company with principles.
Tantus Grab Bags
For starters, Tantus’s Grab Bag Program is pretty much designed for those shopping for sex toys on a budget. Leftover silicone that might otherwise be discarded is used to make mystery color toys out of the same mold as their standard toys, but with more cost-effectiveness.
You can find Tantus silicone sex toys at SheVibe, Spectrum Boutique, Peepshow Toys, Vibrant, and the manufacturer’s own website. There’s a 20-50% off flash sale every month at tantusinc.com, so keep your eyes peeled.
Blush Novelties: affordable dildos, vibes, and more
Blush Novelties has been consistently churning out quality toys of all sorts at low price points. You can find Super Smash Cache’s reviews of Blush Novelties products here or check them out at Peepshow Toys, SheVibe, and Spectrum Boutique.
