Meet in the middle and look for something you'll both enjoy playing with. Keep it light and romance over what kind of pleasure you'd like to explore together.
Luckily we've done most of the prep-work for you (you're welcome - it was definitely our pleasure!). Read on for the best sex toys for lesbian couples.

This vibrating double-ender is our favourite for several reasons. Number one, it vibrates. Always a plus. Number two, it's flexible, and you can get up close and personal during play. Another plus. And it has different ends, which means it'll work even if you fancy different types of stimulation. Plus, plus, plus!
Another great option is the PicoBong Transformer, a double-ended vibe with two bulbs connected by a 17-inch super flexible shaft. Transformer boasts the title of 'World's First Gender-Neutral Sex Toy' which means it offers unlimited ways to play for all genders and couple combinations.
Advanced Level: Strap-Ons for Lesbian Couples
If you've been playing with toys for a while, you might feel ready to take the next step and explore strap-on sex. Now, this isn't for everyone, and you can be a lesbian without ever stepping into the world of the strap-on. The great thing about sex toys is that you can pick and choose and try only the things that really take your fancy!
However, if you're curious and into it, strap-on play is a hot way of giving and receiving pleasure.
First of all, you'll need a strap-on. Obvs. Choosing one together is a turn-on, and you might find juices start flowing already at this stage. There are, of course, a few things to consider. Will the strap-on harness be for both of you to share, or is it for one of you only? If you want to share a Sh! leather harness, it needs to be sized for the partner who has curvier hips. The other person simply tightens the straps when it's their turn to be the giver.
Dildos are fun to choose from, but sizing can be mind-boggling. Do the two of you agree on dildo shape & size, or does one prefer a smaller or larger toy? Over time you'll probably end up with a fabulous collection of dildos, but small-medium is a great starting point.
