Community

Buying intimate products online can be overwhelming. We’re dedicated to making that choice easier.

You won’t find hundreds of products on our site, just a tight selection of the ones we think are best.

We’re a collective of product experts, coaches, researchers, therapists and doctors. Together we’ve tested hundreds of products, worked in manufacturing, studied the history of sex toys, toured labs, read product reviews, learned all about materials and ingredients and poured over endless blogs.

We’re constantly learning and striving to bring you the best, most pleasurable, consciously-made collection of sensual goods.

What is The Sensualist?

What is The Sensualist?

The Sensualist is a celebration of sensuality. Our goal is to help you arouse all five senses and explore your unique sensuality.

Sensuality has no end goal: it is simply about bringing more presence to the pleasures of life. We advocate for holistic mind-body-spirit arousal: the space to wildly explore the depths of joyful moments.

We are a collective: bringing together products from founders who get that sensuality is core to our self-expression and wellness. Our products are selected based on incredibly high standards of material and ingredient quality, efficacy, uniqueness and beauty. If it doesn't fill a gap, we won't carry it.

The Sensualist community expresses sensuality through shared stories, experiences, poems and art.

Share Your Experience

Our blog is written by our community.

The goal is to bring people together in the name of vulnerability. We’re doing this by collecting stories from peers, friends and colleagues who are excited to share their experiences and wisdom about sex, pleasure, sensuality, love, relationships, self-care and everything in between.

Write your story to bring more honesty and resonance to the conversation. You may choose to remain anonymous.

Our Founder

Our Founder

It's our pleasure to introduce you to Arielle: our founder, Sensualist-in-Chief, product expert and chief curator.
 Arielle's purpose in life is to help individuals discover their true sensuality - their core self - that's why she created this brand.

"As the founder of The Sensualist, I’ve personally tested over fifty pleasure products in the last year. I’ve spent years learning about manufacturing, studying materials and ingredients, studying the history of sex toys, combing through reviews, digging into the reputation of brands, speaking with founders, researchers, doctors, therapists, coaches and pouring over endless blogs. If there’s a sex toy we’re considering, I read every single article that’s been written about it on the internet (not kidding). I take everything into consideration: reviews from customers and bloggers, articles online and The Sensualist team’s firsthand experiences."
