Summer fun is on the way out and study time is on its way in. Now’s the time you see parents equipped with lists of school supplies and children excited to buy the latest Lisa Frank backpack (Those are still cool right?). While the next few weeks are stressful for many, parents will get a little break once their children head back to class. Because when the kids are away, the parents will play. Here are the sexentials you want on your back-to-school list that you won’t find at the local store.

New clothes

Say hello to new fall fashion… for the bedroom. Invest in flattering and comfortable lingerie so you can take advantage of that earlier bedtime for the kids. From a teasingly touchable teddy to a babydoll that will have your partner babbling, there are plenty of options to choose from. While you may not be showing off your new clothes at school events, make sure you get an A+ at home.


How will you have the energy to get through a day full of activities without proper sustenance? It’s the same situation for any marathon sex session. That’s why you need a lubricant (and possibly a flavored one) to keep the action going. Keep things hydrated with a water-based lubricant or kick up oral favors with a fun flavor like vanilla cupcake or cotton candy. You want to be prepared for any circumstance, whether it’s water, oral, or anal play.


It’s all about education! You can’t return to school without studious materials. Get a book that’s all about sexual health education, check out one of our blogs about reinvigorating your relationship, or, if you’re low on time (as we all are), check out a podcast from the Patty Brisben Foundation for Women’s Sexual Health. No matter what time of the year it is, it’s always a great time to learn something new.

Art Supplies

The perfect orgasm is like a work of art. While you don’t need the coveted 120 count pack of crayons that’s the envy of anyone in the art room to achieve perfection, an enhancement cream can always step up the experience. Get something you can enjoy alone or with a partner to make your masterpiece one you can never forget.

The Latest Technology

It seems like every school is giving students tablets these days. Well, you don’t want to be left out of the latest tech! You don’t have to worry about being a Mac or PC, we have you covered with all sorts of toys. For example, discover the magic of air pressure that take airotic pleasure to the next level with The Adventurer Curve. Give yourself some homework and learn about the new sensations you can experience with clitoral pulses and G-spot stimulation.

Cleaning Supplies

Ew, germs! The fall is a notorious time for the spreading of bacteria, so you can never be too careful. A good rule of thumb is to clean toys before and after you use them (include washing your hands in this routine). Make sure they stay clean with a cleanser that also protects and polishes. Then keep it in a safe and clean storage bag to protect from dust and curious eyes.

Be prepared for the new school year with these sexentials that’ll make this one the best year yet! This’ll be one back-to-school shopping list that you can look forward to fulfilling to make 2023 the best year yet!
