It’s summer, which means more than a few people will find themselves suddenly single when the weather heats up and clothes start coming off. But don’t sweat it: Even if you don’t have a partner at the ready to get you off in the midst of an August heat wave, that doesn’t mean your sex life should suffer. Thanks to creative sex toy inventors (where do they actually hang out and test drive their products?), there’s something that will help a girl out in just about any situation—and season.
When it gets too fucking hot to fuck, seek solace with simple, solar-powered pleasure created by the Solar Bullet (available from Babeland). This little gadget puts an entirely new twist on fun in the sun, with no batteries or electrical outlets required.
Going green is no longer an excuse for not getting off, since the Solar Bullet ($34) ensures that both your environmental consciousness and your clitoris are appeased in the months ahead. The toy itself is tiny, and as a bonus, its charger looks similar enough to an mp3 player that nobody will be the wiser as to what you’re really doing besides sunbathing.
If you plan on spending some quality time at the beach or poolside, the Jimmyjane Iconic Bullet ($16) gives you an option for getting wet in more ways than one. It’s small, summer-white and waterproof—which means it’s the second most important thing to take to the beach (aside from sunscreen). And if you don’t plan on shedding your relationship as quickly as your clothes this summer, check out the We-Vibe II ($99). It’s more of an investment than the others, so consider splitting the cost with your partner, ’cause it’s intended to be used by the two of you. That and the fact that it’s waterproof might keep you preoccupied enough for your relationship to make it to Labor Day. (Jordan Galloway)
