2020 was a year that many of us want to forget, so we at Betty's thought we would put a different spin on our end of year best sex toys countdown.
Not only are we sharing the top 20 pleasure products, we will give you a little behind-the-scenes peek and some insider stories on what it was like to keep you all supplied with pleasure products through a global pandemic.
Because if there was one thing that folks were buying almost as much as masks, hand sanitizer and toilet paper, it was sex toys.
LUBES AND TOY CLEANERS: THE NEW HOUSEHOLD STAPLES?
Maybe it was all the solo pleasure going on, but Betty's customers were investing heavily in personal lubricant and toy cleaners through 2020. The trick was that some manufacturers were having trouble sourcing the bottles they needed to make their products because of the suddenly HUGE demand for hand sanitizer bottles. It was a struggle keeping you all well-lubricated, squeaky clean and bacteria free this year.
Our 4 hands down bestsellers of 2020 were
SOLO VIBES REALLY HIT THE SPOT
Solo toys are always big sellers but this year, you all seemed to want maximum bang for your buck with some great multi-purpose, powerful pleasure products. Demure bullets and hand-held strokers took a back seat to strong motors, dual stimulation, suction, and vibration.
The powerhouse vibes you chose most were:
5. Fantasy For Her Ultimate Pleasure Double Ended Vibrator - Purple
COUPLES WERE MAKING IT HAPPEN AGAINST THE ODDS
You may have heard that there is now a baby boom thanks to couples spending more quality time together during the pandemic. We at Betty’s like to think we helped to make that happen. Couples toys were more popular than ever this year and for those who couldn’t be together physically, app and bluetooth compatible toys made long-distance that much easier.

PROPS MADE EVERYTHING MORE FUN
Liberator is another great company that has 2 bestsellers in our top 20 and it’s no surprise since they make the best sex bolsters, wedges, and toy mounts on the market. Whether it was toy mounts like the Bonbon for a new spin on solo play, or their new travel throw, perfect for when couple time gets messy, these items were flying out of the store. Liberator were also true heroes, jumping in early on to make masks for frontline workers at their Atlanta, Georgia warehouse. As a result, their funtime products were taking longer to ship, but the delays were all for a great cause.

12. Liberator Fascinator Travel Throw Velvety Sex Blanket
BOOTY FUN WAS HAD BY ALL
Seems like a lot of you were using your time in lockdown to experiment with anal play during 2020. Betty’s live chat was abuzz with questions from enthusiastic booty beginners to experts looking for something new. Maybe this also explains why lube was one of our top sellers! These 3 best selling toys could not be more different in skill level but they made it clear that 2020 was the year of booty play.

14. Luxe Small Wearable Silicone Vibra Slim Plug
15. 3Some Total Ecstasy Remote Controlled Double Penetration Vibrator
EVERYONE LOVED A THRUSTER
Thrusting toys have been gaining popularity the last couple of years, but 2020 was the year that a lot of you decided you needed a thruster in your lives. And not just any thrusting toys either, but powerful thrusters like these two bestsellers with suction cups and the power to give a good pounding.
16. Fantasy For Her Love Thrust-Her Remote Controlled Thrusting Vibrator
17. The Velvet Thruster Mini Teddy Powerful Thrusting Dildo
FOLKS WERE SWITCHING IT UP IN LOCKDOWN
Beginner dildos are always bestsellers at Betty’s, and this year we have to compliment all of you on your great taste. These two demure dongs may be polar opposites in look and shape but they share fantastic quality and strong suction cups that make them winners all around. The huge spike we saw in comfy cotton boxer styled dildo harnesses leads us to believe it wasn’t just solo fun was being had either.
