There’s few things better than celebrities being open and candid about their sex lives. It helps to know that our favorite stars are out there embracing pleasure, having fun and using their clout to dispel stigma around something that everyone should be able to safely and happily enjoy: sex. Plus, since they’ve got sex toy budgets that are a bit more luxurious than the rest of us (looking at you, GOOP!), it can be really fun to get a glimpse at the cool sex toys celebs are able to splurge on and, more helpful for us normies, the more accessible ones that they swear by anyway.

Not every celebrity needs to shout from the rooftops their favorite vibrator style, make and model (I mean, I can dream…) but plenty of them have come out in different interviews to sing the praises of a a toy that’s blown their minds, broadened their horizons or aligned perfectly with their lifestyle and sex life.
From an on-brand green vibrator rec’d by Alicia Silverstone to the notorious sex bench we saw Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson carry into their apartment, these celebrity sex toy favorites run the gamut of vanilla to super adventurous — and we love them all equally. While not all of these are the exact toy, they represent close matches based on interviews and shout-outs we’ve gound in the recent memory. Check ’em out and maybe pick them up for yourself to have a star-studded sexual experience of your own.

An adorable little wand (with a sunny yellow color) is the latest celeb sex toy collab — this time between Demi Lovato and Bellesa.
With an airpods-style store and charge case and a small but mighty toy with eight different modes, it’s a sweet vibe for at-home or on-the-go play.
“There is nothing more empowering than taking your pleasure into your own hands,” Lovato said about the release. “We have spent far too long pretending we are not sexual beings — it’s time for us to put this stigma to rest. We are all deserving of pleasure. We are all deserving of orgasms.”

Dakota Johnson became an invester and creative director for sleek sex toy company Maude in 2020. Since then, she’s talked about how embracing masturnation and sexual health has been an ultimate form of self-care.
She’s talked about her love for Maude’s Vibe (an incredibly pretty, easy to use and gender neutral toy) and their pH balanced wash for down-there self-care.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s love of a good vibrator is well-documented and her brand Goop delivered their first-ever original vibe in early 2021 with their double-sided wand.
“One end of the Double-Sided Wand Vibrator is the ultimate wonder-ball wand for external massage. The other end is slim for targeted stimulation,” they wrote in the announcement. “Each side features eight different pulsating patterns with varying intensities. And yes, we also wanted it to be the most beautiful vibrator—something you’d leave on your nightstand as a functional objet d’art, if that’s your thing.”

Actress Bella Thorne isn’t afraid to get candid about how she embraces sex and sexuality. While promoting her new single “Shake It” in March, she opened up about the toy that does it for her — and it was a dual-stimulator favorite that’s popular with a few other celebs on this list.
“I prefer a rabbit vibrator,” Thorne told InStyle. “I call it that because they look like rabbit ears — I don’t know the real term for it.”
She got it right, the rabbit (like this one from Better Love) delivers with those super efficient and effective bunny ears on top of G-spot stimulation. We love it too, Bella!

Restraints are a great way for couples of all dynamics to play around with power (who has it, who hands it over, all that good stuff) in a safe, fun way. The Master Sex Bench, as seen on Twitter circa 2019 when the then-couple carried it in to their apartment, is a versatile and comfortable piece of sex furniture that lets you optimize restrained positions for penetration, impact play and anything else y’all can come up with.
Cara has since blossomed into a sex influencer in her own right, teaming up as co-owner of sex tech brand Lora DiCarlo in 2020 to collaborate on new community-inspired products.

Alicia Silverstone is well known for her eco-friendly vibes — so it’s no wonder she’s come out as a fan of The Leaf’s vibrators (which are also, coincidentally, eco-friendly vibes!)
“I like that they look natural and feminine…like leaves and flowers…not scary,” Silverstone said in a blog post about the vibes in 2012. “Plus, they’re made from phalate-free, super-soft (and safe) silicone. And they use rechargeable batteries. And they’re shipped to you in packaging that’s not only discreet, but made from recycled materials.”

Years ago, Lawrence (known for her down-to-earth and infinitely relatable vibe) shared a story on Conan about her hotel maid stumbling on her box of sex toys — butt plugs specifically — and how (whether it was a joke or not that she had that many assorted plugs) she shoved them under the bed.
Anal play is fun and cool and we support you giving all kinds of butt stuff a try (with the right lube and attitude) and maybe giving this Wendy Williams Butt Plug starter kit a spin (for twice the celeb action).

Eva Longoria told SELF in 2005 that masturbation has been key to helping her enjoy sex — and that her love of a particular style of vibe has provided an easy, generous gift for her friends.
“Before that, I really wasn’t sexual. I bought my first vibrator three years ago,” she said. “It’s a shame I didn’t discover it sooner. Now I give Rabbit vibrators to all my girlfriends. They scream when they unwrap it. The best gift I can give them is an orgasm.”
Rabbits are plentiful on the market — coming in all shapes and sizes, colors and strengths. This one from Babeland is a quintessential design with a non-intimidating penetrative dildo and a classic bunny fingers clitoral stimulator.

In an interview with the Sun (as shared by Lovehoney), Mel B shared that she was totally shocked by the miserable orgasm gap statistics disproportionately affecting women and femme folk.
“I read about new research that showed 75 percent of women don’t have an orgasm during sex! Oh my God! That amazed me, because having a good sex life is absolutely essential in my opinion,” Mel B said. “My advice to women who are unfulfilled in the bedroom is to invest in a sex toy. I use a little vibrator called a Pocket Rocket – and it does the trick every time.”
The pocket rocket is a totally reliable, easy to use model that’s no frills but plenty powerful. Good choice, Mel!
