Want to add a little spice to your bedroom escapades? The Trojan Vibrating Ring ($20/3-pack) is a great inexpensive option. The disposable rings come with condoms, and provide vibrating stimulation in just the right spot for pleasuring both partners. Need something a little more potent? Check out the Extra Intense version ($18/3-pack). As one reviewer on Amazon said, "My girlfriend and wife both LOVE these things."
If you're a little sore from the pickup game on Sunday like us, you'll know why these guys are essential. The Dr. Cool & Dr. Hot Bags ($16 each) are IV bags filled with techno-chemicals that, when frozen or heated, help ease your pain. Just remember to place the bags on your sore spot, and not hook these up to a real IV setup. Yeah, yeah, we already know you have "ice water pumping through your veins" on the court. Ass.
We spend about a third of our life sleeping, so the mattress you sleep on every night is incredibly important. Make sure you get the right one by trying out a Casper. This USA-made mattress is made up of multiple layers of foam, including one for support and pressure relief, and one to make sure you don't get too hot. It's all wrapped up in a durable woven cover, and shipped right to your door in a box that's easy to maneuver into even the smallest abodes. You get 100 nights to try it out, can return it for free if you're not satisfied, but if you are (and you probably will be), you can upgrade even further by grabbing some of the company's soft Supima cotton sheets and dual-layer pillows.

If you wear contact lenses, you know they're essential — and likely know the feeling of panic when you realize you're on your last pair and haven't reordered. With a subscription service and direct business model, Hubble delivers high-quality disposable lenses right to your door every month, so you don't have to remember when it's time to re-up. The lenses are made from a high-grade hydrogel material for all-day comfort, by an FDA-approved factory that's been making contacts for over two decades. The first box is free, the monthly charge is roughly half what you'd pay for competing dailies, and if you need a prescription, Hubble will even set you up with an optometrist for an eye exam before you place an order.

We're always suspicious of stuff like this, but there are an awful lot of 5-star user reviews for this to be a total hoax. Based on the Bach Flower Remedies — 38 plant and flower-based natural remedies created in the 1930's by an English doctor — Bach Rescue Remedy ($10) combines five flower essences and a good bit of brandy to help you deal with any stressful situation. Mix in some drops to a glass of water or tea, or drop a couple directly onto your tongue. The stuff is apparently also great for calming down pets and crazy kids.
Sign up for the 23andMe Personal Genome Service ($400) and find out more about yourself (besides that you like when this happens). The service sends you a kit, you send back a saliva sample, and they use a special genotyping process to read nearly 600,000 data points on your genome. The result? A better understanding of your personal chemistry, including ancestry, family inheritance, and possible medical genetic dispositions. It's like having a super-accurate palm reader for your DNA.
