There are as many ways to store sex toys as there are types of sex toys, and at the request of you, our beloved readers, in the upcoming weeks we’ll explore the different options that are available. Proper toy storage is an important part of sexual health—you should clean sex toys after every use, and then store them in such a way that they remain clean. Good storage will also help to protect your toys from damage, and is a smart way to keep track of chargers and other accessories.

For most people’s needs a storage bag will be the best choice—bags offer more flexibility for accommodating oddly shaped toys, such as rabbit-style vibrators that have protruding ticklers, and can serve both at-home and travel storage functions. We rounded up some of the best toy storage bags, and even arranged for a few special discounts for you!

This satin sack-style bag has a drawstring closure, and can accommodate toys up to 12 inches in length (its dimensions are 7" x 12"). But the Sugar Sak’s real selling point is its interior coating, which uses a technology called Bioshield 75 that inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi, yeast, mold, mildew, and viruses. The Sugar Sak comes in hot pink or bright orange. Ella Paradis offers Inventory readers 50% off; the discount will be applied automatically at checkout.

Dame Products’ Stash is a zippable cotton pouch that’s perfect for storing toys up to TK inches in size, including the Arc, which we reviewed way back in February. It’s a bit pricier than other storage bags, but it has some features the others don’t, like three inner pockets, two small open-topped pockets and one that zips closed, and sewn-in elastics. The elastics can be used to hold very small toys, like bullets, or charging cords, while the open pockets are the perfect size for stashing condoms or packets of lube.
