A few years ago sex toys were still a little taboo and nothing anyone would admit using. By now they have been reframed not only as cool but as a must have if you want to be a healthy, progressive person. Sexual wellness is something glamour magazines make a lot of money with and stars like Gwyneth Paltrow promote regular masturbation.
After years of mainstream talk about sex toys, the little helpers have become an everyday item as much as a luxury accessory. So it comes as no surprise that people started to talk very openly about buying them. Many celebrities give hints about their favorite toys, have lucrative deals with the industry or just try to be cool by attaching themselves to something seemingly provocative that has been embraced by the mainstream long ago. A good indicator of the destigmatization of the industry is the huge amount of superstars admitting to using sex toys and talking about it in interviews.
Here is a list of 8 of the biggest stars being smart about their health and at the same time being good friends of the sex toy industry. In some cases they kind of overspend. While it is generally wise not to be cheap while buying sex toys it is neither necessary nor particularly helpful to spend sums that could buy you a house. But look for yourself who seems to be convinced that the more expensive the more orgasmic it must be.
Beyoncé is arguably the biggest female pop star on the planet right now. She talked about having bought a gold-plated sex toy for a whopping $6,000 at Babeland, one of the hippest sex shops in New York City.
2. Kate Moss
Supermodel Kate Moss spent a little more on her sex toy, a 24 karat vibrator from Jimmy Jane. Rumor has it that she spent $350,000 on it.
There is no doubt about it, even with 60 this woman remains the queen of pop. Her name is Madonna and as with pretty much everything she did she was always ahead of her time. At a time when it was not a chique thing to have sex toys and when she was still married to director Guy Ritchie, she was spotted with a vibrator in a plastic bag.
4. Miley Cyrus
A few years ago, when Miley Cyrus was still a Disney-clean teenage idol people had a lot of fun sharing pics of a merchandise article tied to her tour. The pop singer’s own candy was supposed to be shaped like a pink guitar but actually resembled a penis. Since then the star has reinvented herself as dancing naked on a wrecking ball and as an edgy, provocative voice. On Twitter, she shared pics of her very own vibrator. The toy, a plastic hand designed for fisting, is called »Adonis« and its owner is apparently cool as fuck.
5. Halle Berry
For a few years Halle Berry was as glamorous and Hollywood royalty as Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow. And she still is for many the quintessential classy woman. So it means a lot that she too didn’t hide at all when she went shopping at a Pleasure Chest outlet in L.A. In an interview, she said that she often goes there to buy sex toys for her collection: »You can’t forget your sexuality — that’s not good. You can still embrace your body by going to the gym or going to the Pleasure Chest.«
6. Ariana Grande
One of the currently biggest stars in pop arguably is Ariana Grande. The singer whose concert in Manchester in 2017 was the target of a terror attack made it obvious that she loves life and all that it has to offer. Her Instagram account, followed by 134 million people, showed a photo of herself with a black dildo next to her on the floor.
7. Eva Longoria
Before Sofia Vergara’s Gloria in »Modern Family« there was another sexy stereotypical latina on American airwaves making everyone crazy. On the ABC hit show »Desperate Housewives« Eva Longoria played Gabrielle and shot to fame during the run of the series. In an interview, she said: »I didn’t begin enjoying sex until I started masturbating. Before that, I really wasn’t sexual. I bought my first vibrator three years ago. 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.«
8. Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham shot to fame as one of the Spice Girls, a Brit-pop sensation of the mid to late 90s. She went on to marry soccer star David Beckham. Together they became an international brand selling perfumes, clothing and many more. They are known for their quite expensive lifestyle. So it is fitting that Victoria got a vibrator made out of platinum with a 10K diamond-encrusted base. According to rumors, David paid $1.8 million for the toy. Looking at that number, we kind of hope it works.
