International Fetish Day is Friday, January 18! What better way to celebrate your favorite fetishes and kinks than with some fabulous gifts that will certainly inspire you in your bedroom, playroom, or dungeon?
What is a fetish?
A fetish is a fixation that needs to be satisfied for a person to get off. Kink, on the other hand, is more of an (often sexual) interest in the same thing. International Fetish Day isn’t just a day for people who like the occasional spanking or role play. It’s a celebration for those who fully embrace this aspect of their sexuality. However, I personally think it’s a fabulous time to get in touch with your kinky side, whether you’re a full on femme domme or just like a little S&M on occasion!

The best way to celebrate…
…is with play time! If you’re a voyeur, get it on in a semi-public place. (It can really be that simple.) But if you require some accessories to really fulfill your desires, here are some of our favorite toys.

Tantus Wham Bam Paddle
I already loved Tantus’s super high quality, 100% premium silicone toys, and I knew this paddle would be equally incredible… if only I could get past my beginner’s fear, and accept the harsh sting of silicone.
Tantus Pelt Paddle
Get it at Tantus for $40 and read our review!
Silicone, although usually a luxurious and supple material, delivers a surprisingly strong blow even with the subtlest of motions. So, the Pelt Paddle is able to pack a LOT of power, delivering a hard hit even with a relatively tiny motion. However, you can still easily control the Pelt to pack the sensation exactly where you crave. Pain princesses like me will instantly fall in love with the pelt, yet even a beginner could love the Pelt given they have a caring partner.
Fetish Fantasy Gold Pleasure Paddle
This is one of the most versatile impact toys I’ve EVER used – you truly can control just how hard it hurts. With the flick of a wrist, you can change the amount of pressure in your hits – anywhere from gentle swats to stinging hard smacks
Sex & Mischief XOXO Paddle
It’s flexible, thin, and lightweight, yet still a firm paddle that can pack a nice sting. The “XOXO” design can even mark you with its pattern if hit hard enough!
More Impact Play
Get it at Filthy Dirty for $50.
Magnifique Whip Necklace
Get it at GoodVibes for $30.
This necklace doubles as a flogger, able to tempt and tickle, or punish, whichever fits the mood. Wrapping the neck chain around your wrist or holding it with the opposite hand turns the bar into a handle, making for easily controlled flogging. When trailed across bare skin, the chains will elicit passion and arousal, priming your partner for what comes next – pleasurable pain.
Tantus Beginner Ball Gag
I searched for the right size ball, and especially one that was detachable, but the options seemed really slim… until I came across Tantus’s Beginner Ball Gag to review – which is, of course, my new favorite! Tantus can simply do no wrong.
Sex Kitten Silicone Ball Gag
Get it at Luxe Vibes for $25 and check out our review!
This gag is made of my favorite material (so it’s body-safe and easy to clean) – plus has an adjustable strap made of comfortable leather that’s also durable, so you’ll be perfectly silenced. This gag is seriously my new favorite, and if you’re a fan of keeping your mouth occupied and quiet during sex, you’ll definitely enjoy it as much as I have!
Sinful Ball Gag
Get it at Filthy Dirty for $12 and check out our review!
This gag is great, and if you’re a fan of keeping your mouth occupied during sex, you’ll definitely enjoy it as much as I have!
All Sorts of Restraints
Expandable Spreader Bar & Cuff Set
Get it at Adam & Eve for $50 and check out our review!
If you’re as flexible as the average person, this product will probably work great for you! The construction works, its easy to get on and off in the middle of play, it collapses easily for storage, its not hard to set up (though it does take both hands) and the cuffs are comfy and adjustable.
Hog Tie & Cuff Set
Get it at Adam & Eve for $37 and check out our review!
Great for adventurous couples looking to add some extra kink into the bedroom, this hog tie and cuff set offers so many levels of enjoyment. Whether you’re wanting to introduce a little light BDSM into your relationship or already an expert at it, this restraint system is the perfect addition to your collection. Soft, fully adjustable cuffs can be linked to a sturdy O-ring, nearby objects, or even each other to create endless possibilities.
Pipedream’s Mini Silk Rope Sampler
Get it at SheVibe for $11.
Just “learning the ropes” when it comes to bondage? (Pun definitely intended.) Not sure if tying someone up or getting tied up is right for you? Looking for a cheap and easy way to try it out? Pipedream’s Mini Silk Rope Sampler set could be just the thing you need to get started!
Tease Me Silver Handcuffs
Months after getting Lovehoney’s Tease Me Silver Handcuffs, I still love them, use them, and consider them a favorite in my toy collection. I can safely say they’ve held up to some very hardcore wear, and are totally solid. Sturdy, strong handcuffs that are also inexpensive are hard to come by! Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced kinkster, I’d totally recommend these cuffs for all your BDSM fantasies.
Play with Pegging
Tantus Bend Over Beginner Kit
These sizes were perfect for my partner and I (both anal and strap on beginners). But, if you’re looking for something a bit larger, or are using the strap on with a female partner, you may want to try the Bend Over Intermediate Kit instead – which has dildos with a bit more length and girth. The only thing that would have made these dildos even better would have been a hole in the center to allow for a vibrating bullet – though Tantus has a ton of other dildos that have this awesome feature.
Tantus Starter Dildo
The feeling of being filled up but not stretched to my limit was perfect for me and helped me to enjoy this new experience at my own pace and ability.

Badass Butt Plugs
Njoy Pure Plug
Get it at GoodVibes starting at $60.
he Pure Plug is non-vibrating and made completely of heavy steel. It’s beautiful, sleek design begs to be used on your more intimate areas, and is especially fabulous as a small yet weighty and incredibly pleasurable plug. Known for their attention to quality and pleasure, nJoy knocks it out of the park with this curvy toy perfect for anal play or P-spot stimulation. This toy lives up to its promise of quality, while delivering unparalleled pleasure.
Its design and size are a little more intense than that of a beginner plug. Measuring in at 5 inches long (though the twisting screw design and insertable area take up only about two-thirds that length) and 1.3 inches in girth – it’s definitely larger than a finger but still a bit smaller than most penises. If you’re already comfortable with butt plugs, are experienced with some anal play with a partner, or are just feeling a tad adventurous, the Twist is an excellent toy to check out!
Icicles #48 Glass Butt Plug
This pretty plug is everything you could ask for. It’s perfectly designed for comfort and pleasure, with a cute flowered base that makes it seem much more innocent than it is… it’s also easy to clean, fabulous for temperature play, and exceedingly comfortable (even for a beginner). If you’re looking for the perfect plug to add to your collection, with a touch of girly bliss, this is a must-have.
Naughty Nipple Clamps
Bijoux De Nip Feather Clamps
Get them at Filthy Dirty for $24 and check out our review!
These seductive tweezer-style nipple clamps are well-designed with high-end materials, and a strong design that is as sturdy as it is beautiful. It’s no doubt that Bijoux de Nips’ unique accessories and sensual cosmetics exist in a realm all of their own, delighting romantic lovers and luxury kinksters alike. For the girl who loves luxury and wants some gorgeous nipple adornment in the bedroom that can provide pleasure and pain simultaneously, these clamps are simply perfect!
Fetish Fantasy Gold Feather Nipple Clamps
Get them at Adam & Eve for $13 and check out our review!
The screw-style clip to tighten the clamps make me feel like a real BDSM badass. I’d give these clamps a solid A. They’re perfect for a BDSM beginner who wants a clamp that can be easily adjusted and still look awesome.
Scarlet Obey Me Blindfold
Get it at Adam & Eve for $10.
Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Satin Blindfold

Create A Sensation
Fetish Fantasy Wartenberg Wheel
Get it at Adam & Eve for $10 and check out our review!
With light application, the wheel gives a tickling, tingly sensation, while harder pressure causes mild pain. The dual-edged side of the toy is great for creating a scraping sensation. It’s all very mild and perfect for introducing someone into the world of sensation and pain play. The metal material is also fabulous because it can be heated with care or cooled to add some temperature play fun.
Frisky Feather Duster
