Vibrant to vibrating stuff right here. This article is part of the well-defined Temper X Date Night China FWB agreement. Arcosa Koa Lenon (nom de plume) takes us on an electrifying initiation of Taobao sex toys to buy when in China — for 30 RMB or less. Whip it!
China’s adult product e-commerce market in 2020 amounted to 62.5 billion RMB and that figure remains on the rise. The “world’s factory” has been the largest sex toy producer since 2010, with around 70 percent of the world’s sex toys being manufactured in the Middle Kingdom.
China’s sexual landscape is always changing. In the last few decades, China’s attitudes towards sex have become more liberal, as a modern-day revolution roves on.
Owning luxury adult toys is no longer a taboo. With a “freer” society comes a freer attitude towards sex, pleasure, and relationships. Making for some fingerlickin’ good content.
Sex toys in China have gradually become a modern accessory to a fashionable and liberated lifestyle, though, they have actually existed in the East for centuries. According to researchers, sex toys were at the disposal of sexually discontented concubines 2,000 something years ago. Yet their use was forced into an underground one after the Cultural Revolution and ideas of sexual liberation were pushed aside as China focused on collectivism. Saucy, right?
A growing appetite for sex toys now helps to drive this sexual revolution we are witnessing. In fact, sex toys are so ubiquitous that they are readily available at the counter of convenience stores like Family Mart, sitting right next to your grab-and-go basics like chewing gum and condoms. Handy, huh?
Now, without further ado, or setting one foot out the door, we slide right in — apologies for the perhaps graphic nature of this cheesiness — to Arcosa Koa Lenon and the Top Ten Sex Toys Under 30RMB. Cheapo, non?
1. “Bussy Vibration” – about 20 RMB
A friend of mine back in the States had purchased a similar product and has been raving about it for months, so it was impossible for me to NOT include on my list. Of course, this is just a cheap-o version, but if you’ve never tried out a “pocket pussy” type toy, then this is a good chance for you to test it out and decide if the fleshlight life is for you.
2. Discrete Lipstick Vibrator– 9.5 RMB
If you find yourself in situations where you need a vibrator on the go, but don’t want people rummaging through your purse to see what you have, this might be the right tool for you.
3. Glass Masturbation Crystal – 11.5 RMB and up
This glass dildo comes in a couple different styles, including cucumber, banana, carrot, and eggplant. I have not tried all of the styles available, but I can say that the cucumber (which has bumps all over) and the banana (which has a nice curve to it) are hands-down the two best pieces in my toy box. I have had these toys for more than a year, and they certainly get more use than anything else I have. The glass is smooth, heavy, and cool, which all contribute to some mind-blowing orgasms. Also, it is easy to clean, which I greatly appreciate.
4. Stainless Steel Masticatory Urethra Plug – 14 RMB and up
This tool is just one example of a HUGE variety of options this shop offers at a very affordable price. Whether it be fuzzy handcuffs, nipple clamps, or underwear with a built-in butt plug, this store has it.
5. Electric Nipple Massager Pasties – 17 RMB
While I have never tried these out, I imagine they are a unisex item, just like nipple clamps. If you like a bit of nipple play, these might be a neat addition to your collection.
6. Fox Tail Stainless Steel Butt Plug and Matching Ears – about 30 RMB
Stainless Steel is one of those popular materials for sex toys. It is sleek, cool to the touch, heavy, and easy to clean. Honestly, it is also less likely to shatter than glass. These butt plugs come in many different colors and are paired with matching ears. 太可爱啊！[“too cute”]
7. Mouth-shaped “Pocket Pussy” – 15.84 RMB
A more classic “pocket pussy” toy, this silicone sleeve is small, cute, and waterproof.
8. Textured Rubber Glove – 19.5 RMB and up
Maybe you aren’t interested in anything too bulky. [so many puns, so little time] You enjoy touching yourself or having your partner administer digital sex. This glove can take touching yourself to the next level by providing a few extra bumps and ridges to play around with.
9. Glass Butt Wand – 29 RMB
As mentioned above, glass toys can be pleasurable for many reasons. If you do choose to buy a glass toy, please be sure to use caution. I’m sure it is possible to check for sure if Taobao purchased are shatter-proof, but to be safe, store it in a place where it won’t be chipped or broken easily.
10. Sensual Hot Wax – 18 RMB
For those of you that like things to literally heat up in the bedroom, there is always hot wax. A couple of cool cloths might complement these candles nicely.
