Looking to spruce things up in the bedroom? Lucky for you, Hong Kong has a great variety of sex shops that can help make even the wildest dreams come true. But if you’re not sure where to start or what to look for, then you’ve come to the right place. We paid a visit to Take Toys Hong Kong, the city’s largest sex toy retail chain, and asked Justin Chu, a community sex educator and sex toy ethnographer, to help us find the most couple-friendly sex toys for you and your boo this Valentine’s Day.

Don’t be put off by its name. The Cobra Libre II is a gentle massager designed for both solo and couple use. With two powerful motors, this innovative toy can reach even the most sensitive areas. The massager's soft, velvety interior is for male insertion only, but the rumbling vibrations can be enjoyed by both you and your partner.
Justin: "It’s a penis head massager for the glands area. All you have to do is press the plus or minus sign to see how strong you want it. You can change up the vibration patterns and frequency too!"
The Womanizer is not just any sex toy for women, it is the sex toy for women. Not only is the vibrator equipped with Pleasure Air Technology that is patented by the brand, but it also has varying levels of stimulation that can arouse via soft pressure waves. It’s the ideal bedroom companion for you or your partner on a special night.
Justin: "It's a really discrete toy that's recommended for beginner users. It's good for people who just want to try things out externally."
Fun, sleek and discrete, the Manta Vibrating Stroker is perfect for couples who are looking to add some excitement in the bedroom. This easy-to-handle toy can be used as an accessory during foreplay or a pleasure enhancer during intercourse. There are 12 unique vibration patterns along with adjustable vibration intensities. Need more time for foreplay? Well, this toy can last up to two full hours of play on just one charge.
Justin: "I think this is truly one-of-a-kind because we've never had vibrators made for males before. It's easy to use too, just press the start button, position it along the penis, and let the good vibrations roll."
Tenga's products are predominantly made for male solo use, but who's to say you can't enjoy it as a couple? With pressure pads that can directly control the intensity of stimulation, use this on your partner to really get the mood going. The internal pressure, textured inner sleeve, and flexible orbs create a one-of-a-kind experience for its users.
Justin: "Obviously, I don't need to teach you how to masturbate, but unlike using your hands, this toy has many textured little orbs inside where it is able to trigger different parts of the penis. It'll help get you in the mood before moving on to something more adventurous, with your partner."
For something a little more classy and beginner-friendly, the Le Wand Deux is what you need. The toy uses a body-safe silicone for comfort and great sensation. It also features a twin-motor for amplified sensations – 15 vibration modes, and six arousing intensity levels. For recharging, all you have to do is detach the metal base of the toy and plug it into any standard USB port – just like a memory stick!
Justin: "This isn't a sound fork, it's a massager! It's so versatile, for example, you can use it on the vagina (obviously), neck, inner thighs, nipples, or even your penis. Having this means the world is in your hands."
No two bodies are the same, and Sync, just like its name suggests, is a powerful toy that can be adjusted to fit your unique body, so you can feel the vibrations right where you want them. There is another version of this nifty little toy where you can download the free We-Connect app and have unlimited fun together, even when you're apart. The Beat mode will send vibrations to your partner in time with your music, while the Touch mode allows you to take full control of the vibrator in real-time. All with just a few taps on your phone.
Justin: "This is a toy for heterosexual couples. After you insert the toy inside the female, the male partner can also enter at the same time to create a triple sensation. With the other version, you can connect to it via Bluetooth and use your phone to pleasure your partner. It's a really fun toy you can use to spice things up."
