During a recent trip to Boheme, I noticed a beautiful bullet-shaped like statement necklace around the neck of my friend, April. Delighted by my interest in her accessories, April quickly took it off for me to look at, asking me with a playful smirk if I knew what it really was. I just thought it was a nice piece of jewelry, so I asked her.

Her response? “It’s my vibrator.” 

Yes, ladies, welcome to the new world of wearable and stylish sex toys. Online retailer Crave hopes to re-imagine the sex toy shopping and user experience by designing and manufacturing a line of sleek new vibrators that women won’t just love using, but will actually want to show off. Their design team is led by women and the company encourages their development team to frequently engage in open dialogues with customers about their sexual needs and desires—a female-friendly, sex-positive oasis in the typically male-dominated and frequently seedy world of sex toys.

In addition to more standard (though surprisingly beautiful) vibrator designs, Crave also makes a vibe designed to look like a tube of lipstick, as well as two additional pieces of sexy jewelry: a pair of leather cuffs attached by a short chain (the company suggests wearing them out on the same arm) and a lariat-style necklace with silver droplets on each loose end that, surprise, can double as nipple vibrators.

April's necklace, The Vesper, is a pendant shaped like a long, thin bullet that comes in three finishes—silver ($69), rose gold ($79) and 24K gold ($149)—with a body that's made from polished stainless steel. Controlled by a single tiny button, Vesper has four speeds (including pulsating) and simply unscrews from its cap for USB charging. We tried it out and you could barely hear even so much as whisper coming from it, even on the pulsating function. 

Visually, as I was holding my friend's vibrator in my hands, the first word that sprung to mind was gorgeous. I wanted one just to wear, even before I knew what it was. This is truly a beautifully designed piece of craftsmanship. The Vesper comes with its own chain but April also added a chain extender so that it falls at just the right spot, just above the cleavage without yelling “Hey, look at my breasts.” Subtle, yet very sexy.  

April added that owning one is a little like being in a secret club. When she runs into other women also wearing one, there is an unspoken nod of acknowledgment, not to mention the added kick she gets when people find out that this statement piece is more than just a necklace. It is weird to wear your vibrator around your neck? I thought the idea was bold, and frankly, about time. Why should we as women, not get to literally wear our sexuality proudly and have a great piece of jewelry to wear while doing so?
