As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you’ll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.
Allow us to let you in on one little secret: the only thing better than a partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three french hens, four calling birds, five golden rings, six geese a-laying, seven swans a-swimming, eight maids a-milking, nine ladies dancing, 10 lords a-leaping, 11 pipers piping, and 12 drummers drumming are sex toys.
Sure, sex toys might not be the first thing that pops into your head when you’re considering holiday gifting. But we’d argue that they should be, whether you’re buying gifts for “your true love” or yourself. That’s why, this year, we’re gifting ourselves the ultimate present: 12 Days of Orgasms.
Each of the 12 sexcessories we’ve compiled below are designed to take your orgasm to the next level. The goal is to try one or two — or, if you’re really dedicated, one per day — in the 12 days leading up to the holidays, in the wind-down from them, or just whenever you want to to turn up the heat on your December (or any other month, for that matter). We promise, regardless of whether you participate in all 12 days or just a handful, making sure to spend some quality time with yourself each day will be a great way to combat any seasonal stress that tends to creep up this time of year.
Reminder: despite the name of this challenge, you don’t have to orgasm every time you use one of the sex toys or sex accessories. Orgasms aren’t the end-all-be-all of sex, after all. The goal is to enjoy yourself and make sure everything feels good in the moment.
Ready to feel the, ahem, holiday spirit? Right this way.
