Ann Summers is a British institution and a rite of passage as far as erotic enjoyment goes. Whether you first giggled and experimented at an Ann Summers party, or sneaked a peek in the windows as a teen, the name is synonymous with sex and pleasure. 

These days, you’re probably more likely to browse online, and Ann Summers now has a huge range on their online store, all delivered discreetly in low-key packaging to your door, of course. There’s lots to choose from, too, from cock rings to couples’ toys, rampant rabbits to realistic dildos. Whether you’re a first-timer to the world of sex toys, or are an old hand (so to speak) and want to know what’s new, it can be a little daunting to be faced with the sheer array of products on the market. So, we’ve curated a list of the best Ann Summers sex toys for you to choose from. 

We’ve worked with Ann Summers many times to find out what Mumsnetters think and feel about sex and masturbation, so we’re confident that we know all about what women want and which sex toys will tick the boxes. 

In 2022, we conducted a survey about the sex lives of mums with Ann Summers, and the results were really interesting. Two thirds of Mumsnetters said that, for them, sex was one of the most important parts of a romantic relationship and 51% of respondents said they’d like to have more of it! So lots of you are definitely interested in investing more time and energy into your sex lives. 

In terms of toys, 41% of those who responded to the survey already used sex toys and a further 34% said they would like to try them. And it wasn’t all ‘me, me, me’ either. A whopping 71% agreed that sex toys enhanced a healthy sex life rather than taking away from it. 

Here are the best Ann Summers sex toys to buy now.

“A rabbit might be the best for a first toy. They aren't all noisy.” B1rdFlyingHigh

Our verdict

If you aren’t quite sure whether you want a dildo style or something more like a bullet for clitorial stimulation, a Rabbit gives you the best of both worlds. With its smooth, silicone shaft, which curves up into vibrating ‘ears’ to stimulate the clitoris, this gives really intense, blended orgasms. Users say it might take some experimenting to find the perfect position to hit all the right spots but it’s worth the wait. 

Because it’s completely hands free, you’re able to explore other erogenous zones or pay your partner some attention while it does its magic. Fans of the Rampant Rabbit say it’s really comfortable to use and gets you to orgasm in seconds. Lots of value for money.

Our verdict

For something a little subtler than some of the sex toys on the market, you might like to try a ‘wand’. This version from Ann Summers is designed for massaging any area of the body (and we do like a product that multitasks!). As a sex toy, Mumsnetters say this has a more relaxing feel to it; run the wand all over your body (or your partner’s) and then use the textured silicone head around erogenous zones to bring you to a slow, pleasurable orgasm. 

This has eight different vibration functions and three ‘intensity’ levels and it comes in a cotton bag to keep it out of sight and hygienic, too.

If couples’ sex toys are on your shopping list, this remote control egg should bring some spice to the bedroom, or put a spring in your step during the supermarket shop. 

Designed to be used at home, in the bath or shower, or even out and about if you can bear it, the silicone egg is inserted easily and then you use the remote control to send vibrations straight to where they matter. Or you can hand the remote to your partner for a bit of added frisson. The egg has seven different vibration patterns and three speed settings for you both to try out.

Similar to the Fusion Egg above, this is a couple’s toy that allows one of you to control the vibes and one to enjoy them. This one isn’t designed to be inserted, but instead to lay against the clitoris, where you can enjoy its seven vibration patterns and three speeds. 

It’s made from smooth and tactile silicone and has a gently curved shape that fits neatly inside your underwear. Some people who bought it said it was a little noisier than expected but if you’re not quite brave enough to use it outside of the house, there’s definitely plenty of fun to be had indoors. It allows you to enjoy the vibrations while remaining totally hands free, and also has a removable bullet that you can use alone or during foreplay.

No messing about here, the Moregasm+ Petite G-Spot Vibrator hits the spot right where it should. And if you’re thinking size matters, this petite vibrator will prove that the best things definitely come in small packages. 

With three speeds and three vibration patterns, you can spend plenty of time experimenting and the Climax Technology promises to produce longer, deeper orgasms throughout your body.

A single button lets you scroll through the settings, so you don’t have to think about anything else but your orgasm. It’s also waterproof for bathtub fun.

Where can I buy the best sex toys?

The internet has made a huge difference to shopping for sex toys and the Ann Summers website is packed with information, suggestions and real reviews to help you make your decision. However, there are still plenty of bricks and mortar stores, where you can speak to an expert in person and see the products in the flesh (or more likely in the silicone). 

If I buy sex toys online will it be sent discreetly?

Yes. Most companies are great at this so you won’t have the postman sniggering and even if your neighbours take in your parcel for you, they shouldn’t have a clue what’s in it. At Ann Summers they send out parcels in a plain box or heavy duty envelope with no branding or logos at all. Neither the return address label nor the entry on your bank statement will be listed as ‘Ann Summers’. 

Which sex toy should I get?

It really depends on what you want out of it. There are a few things to ask yourself before you go shopping, however, that might help make the decision.

  • Obviously, think about your budget first. You can get something pretty decent for around £20 (though sex toys start at much less) but at around £40-£60 you’ll get much higher quality toys with more bells and whistles (sometimes literally).
  • Think about whether it’s just for you, or for you and your partner. If you’re considering their needs too, then think about what they enjoy as well as maybe looking at toys that include a remote control element.
  • Consider where you want to use the toy. If you want to use it in the bath or shower, make sure it’s waterproof. 
  • Ask yourself whether you need a cordless toy or one that plugs in. USB is great as they can be recharged anywhere. 
  • Consider materials too. Glass dildos tend to scare beginners a bit but they’re actually perfectly safe and really hygienic. You might like to start off with something soft and silicone, however. 
  • Think about size and shape and how you generally orgasm. For those who are all about clitoral stimulation a small bullet will do the job nicely, but if you want G-spot stimulation, you’ll want something more like a traditional dildo - many toys do both at the same time. If you’re shopping for cock rings, think about your partner’s size, too - you want a snug fit but nothing that’s going to cut off the poor chap’s blood supply. 
  • Will you want to take the toy away with you when travelling? If so, look for something that’s easy to recharge and isn’t going to cause a scene at baggage check in. Something in silicone and discreet enough to go in your make-up bag is a good plan.

What is the best vibrator for a beginner?

A bullet vibrator is a popular first choice. They’re small, easy to use and discreet, and can bring pleasure to both partners during foreplay and sex, as well as being great for solo play, too. The Five-inch Rechargeable Beginner’s Vibrator from Ann Summers is a great choice. 

What is the best sex toy to buy for a couple?

Remote control toys are great for couples as one can wear and one can control the vibrations. Vibrating cock rings are also good for bringing a bit of zing to the bedroom. Many companies also sell ‘couples’ hampers’ which include a range of toys for you to try out together. Ann Summers’ Fusion Remote Control Panty Vibe is a nice toy to start with for couples. 

What’s the best vibrator you can buy?

We think the Ann Summers Silicone Powered Bullet is a great all rounder and definitely a good place to start if you aren’t sure. It’s easy to use and gets rave reviews.

What should I look for in a vibrator?

Decide what style you want first - there’s a big difference between the ‘realistic’ penis-a-like models of the 1980s and the much more subtle and smaller vibrators of today. Think about whether you want a bullet or a dildo style - or a bit of both, in which case go for a rabbit. 

Also, look at reviews to see what the vibrations are like - you might want something with quite ‘light’ buzzy vibes or something with deeper rumbles. It’s a personal decision but shop around and read reviews carefully. Consider materials too. Medical grade or ‘body safe’ silicone is good for vibrators or ABS plastic, which is non-porous and therefore more hygienic. Don’t forget that glass and stainless steel are also perfectly safe options. 

Once you’ve decided on style and size, look at ‘extras’. How many speeds and vibrations styles does it have? Are the controls easy to work? Is it rechargeable? If you want to use it in the bath check it’s waterproof. Some even come with their own storage bag, which is a nice extra. 

How do you keep sex toys clean?

Check the instructions it came with. Some need a specific type of cleaning product, eg one that is water based. Either way, always wash well after use, dry properly and put away (preferably in the bag it came in). Cotton drawstring bags are usually good. 

Where should you store your sex toys?

Preferably out of sight. Even if you don’t have kids in the house, your mother in law or cleaner don’t deserve an eyeful either! Some people buy a lockable box if they’re worried about kids snooping around, but what’s most important is that they are stored safely and hygienically so read the instructions and check what they suggest.
