If you are purchasing sex toys online in Australia then FemPlay might be a good option.
Operating for over 16 years, this popular online adult store offers a staggering selection of sex toys, bedroom essentials such as lube, condoms and hygiene products as well as lingerie, costume and role-play accessories. Catering not just for women but for men too, FemPlay has become a household name when it comes to ordering intimate products remotely.
In this review, we take a look at what FemPlay offers from both a product and a service perspective as well as finding out a little more about the company and the website.
Who are FemPlay?
Founded in December 2002, FemPlay is an online adult store operated from Yatala in Queensland. The company offers a comprehensive range of adult products from sex toys and bedroom basics to lingerie, novelty items and essentials.
They have positioned themselves in a competitive market as being a specialist store for women and couples although they do sell a good range of products for men too.
FemPlay prides itself on providing a discreet service to its customers and has shipped over a million products over the course of its sixteen years in business; each package being plain wrapped with no tell-tale information included on the shipping labels.
The company also offers some other incentives to its customers, including:
- Free batteries with all relevant products
- Free shipping on all orders over $100
- Free gift for orders over $75
They also offer a price match guarantee, meaning if you find a product cheaper at any online store in Australia, they will match the price up to 30-days after you purchase something.
FemPlay stocks a wide selection of trusted and well-known brands including products from Jack Rabbit, Calexotics, iVibe, LELO, Jack Rabbit, Crystal Jellies, Doc Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey, PornHub Toys, Fetish and Fetish Fantasy.
The site is easy to navigate and each product has a full product description with reviews, additional info and information on the materials used in production; essential for anyone with allergies or who are sensitive to things like latex.
FemPlay also has a good image gallery available for most products so you can really get up close and personal with a product before buying it. This has long been a moan about online sex shops when it can be difficult to assess important things like size and texture.
Bondage is no longer considered a taboo kink and has been liberally accepted in many Australian bedrooms as part and parcel of a healthy sex life. As a result, sex stores like FemPlay have been keen to help couples accessorise with suitable gear and the website has a good selection of equipment.
Though by the standards of any experienced BDSM fans, the products on sale may look a little ‘vanilla’, there is actually not a bad range available.
You can find ropes and restraints, bondage handcuffs, collars and leashes, nipple clamps, masks, whips, paddles, gags and even a section on electro-play. The sex furniture section leaves a lot to be desired and really only covers a couple of sex swings and a few accessories to make sex in the shower more manageable.
If you are interested in some more heavy-duty bondage gear, then you might be interested in the shopping section in our recent our review of the BDSM communities of Australia.
One of the largest categories on the site, the lingerie section covers everything from chemise sets and teddies to corsets, babydolls and body stockings. They even have a range of sexy costumes that embrace the traditional role-play options of everything from nurse, maid and schoolgirl to superheroes, Egyptian slave and even some fantasy outfits.
There’s a distinct lack of fashion for the fellas with a rather sad single option of ‘Beefcake Briefs’.
By far one of their most staple products are those that are aimed at women from their range of vibrators, dildos and dongs. They have everything from classic vibrators to tried-and-tested rabbit, bullet and g-spot massagers. Fancy a double ended dong or a realistic dildo? They’ve got more than you shake a stick at.
Pussy pumps, strap ons and anal sex toys compete a fairly standard line up of bedroom toys for women and the guys can also get in on the action. Choose from a good selection of cock rings, extenders, prostate massagers, sex dolls and masturbation sleeves and pumps.
Maximising on its position of being aimed at women, there is a good section on Kegel exercise equipment. These beads, balls and wands are specifically designed to help improve the strength of your pelvic floor muscles. They have a whole host of Ben Wa Balls to choose from.
As far as novelty items go, FemPlay has the usual selection of adult games, cheeky gifts and essentials for any hen night. Of particular note is the popular adult game of Nooki, a board game that is designed to spice up your sex life and probably doesn’t end up in the same amount of arguments as something like Monopoly.
Books and DVDS
Whilst FemPlay offers a very small selection of printed material, they can offer a massive selection of adult movies. FemPlay On Demand is a great streaming and downloads service where you can access an archive of thousands of great porn titles from across 400 popular studios including Evil Angel, Digital Playground and Wicked.
It’s a nice little extra service but is really no more than a gimmick as you can probably get most of these titles on other premium porn sites at similar (if not cheaper) prices. Unless you factor in the rewards programme (see below).
FemPlay doesn’t run a points scheme like some other adult websites but they do offer a loyalty programme that rewards repeat custom for their on-demand movies.
The reward scheme runs like this:
- 2nd order Buy 1 Get 15% Off 2nd
- 5th order Buy 1 Get 15% Off 2nd
- 8th order Buy 1 Get 2nd Item Free (Equal or lesser value)
- 10th order 10% Off Whole Order
- 15th order Buy 1 Get 2nd Item Free (Equal or lesser value)
- 20th order 15% Off Whole Order
- 25th order Buy 1 Get 2nd Item Free (Equal or lesser value)
- 30th order 25% Off Whole Order
- 50th order 50% Off Whole Order
- 100th order Permanent 5% Discount
- 400th order Permanent 10% Discount
- 1000th order Permanent 15% Discount
It’s a shame that this same programme couldn’t be rolled out to their physical products as well as it would surely give customers a massive incentive to return to the site.
