While the notion of every person being entitled to sexual pleasure is innately inclusive, the reality is that not all sex toys are one-size-fits-all. Consider the size and shape of a slimline vibrator: To use it, a person must grip the toy at the base and stretch their arm past the length of their body to reach their genitalia. But for many, a belly, hips, and thighs could limit the reach. That's why certain designs and products make for ideal sex toys for larger bodies.
Sex toys for larger bodes "make it easier to reach your pleasure zones,” says inclusivity advocate Christina Winkelmann. “I'm talking about longer handles, remote access, and suction capabilities… Our larger bodies can sometimes make it harder for us to reach those areas, so longer, curved handles help with overall reach.”

There's no need to contort your body to fit the dimensions of a sex toy that will not budge, though, because a number of products available make pleasure accessible to people with larger bodies. Below, learn about the design elements to consider in selecting such sex toys, then check out some of the best options currently available.
5 design elements of sex toys for larger bodies
1. A longer stem
A longer stem or handle of a toy provides more access to reach erogenous zones. Whether masturbating or touching a partner, an extended dildo or a vibrator with a sturdy handle can provide more length—thus, more pleasure.
2. Flexible material
A bend or curve in a sex toy creates ample space for the piece to rest on the body and allows the user to experience pleasure comfortably. For example, a wand vibrator with a bendable head is an excellent universal massager because the head covers a large surface area and can stimulate different body parts that are most accessible in specific positions.
3. Single function
While dual toys are great for compounding the intensity of your pleasure experience, chances are what works for one part of your body might not work for another. Because of this, trying to use them might create undue stress.
For instance, maybe a toy offers direct external stimulation and a vibrating internal piece, but the internal function isn't a shape that works for you or doesn't provide the space you need. In this case, find an internal toy that provides the pulsing, thrusting, and firmness for your body with the right amount of grip area for you to manipulate.
Then, snag an external toy that can stay in place or easily move for your pleasure. This allows you to get everything you want out of your sex toy while mitigating the stress of a dual product not fitting, adjusting, or laying as its meant to.
4. Assistive features
We want to work with our body, not against it, to have a sexy solo or partnered experience. And certain sex toys allow for easy modifications to facilitate this.
For example, vibrating grinding pads enable more access to our bits, and remote-control toys allow folks to toggle through set patterns without needing to contort or strain the body to different positions. Also, "suction toys are great because you can attach them to stable, hard surfaces that you already know are secure and will allow you to ride hands-free," says Winkelmann, adding that this is a win because it allows you to reach erogenous zones in various positions without needing your hands to place the toy.
5. Thoughtful button location
It's important to have easily accessible controls when shopping for sex toys for larger bodies. That way, you can quickly adjust the speed and pattern if the sensation is too much or not enough. Think about how this toy will be used, where it will be placed, and how it lays on the body. From there, determine if it will work for your body, so you don't find yourself on the brink of orgasm but unable to reach the button to turn up the intensity that one last notch you need.
