An adult toy is any toy designed specifically for the pleasure of adults rather than children. Due to this distinction, an adult toy is generally sexual in nature. An adult toy is typically designed to arouse the user, bring the user to orgasm, or to enhance orgasm.
Dildos, vibrators, Ben Wa balls, butt plugs, and prostate massagers are some of the most popular adult toys. Some adult toys can be used by either gender, while others are specifically designed for males or females to use during masturbation or partnered sex.
An adult toy is sometimes called an adult sex toy, a sex toy, an adult novelty, or an erotic toy.
