How to Choose Your First Sex Toy

So you made the decision to purchase a sex toy for the first time. First off, congratulations! Making the conscientious decision to find new and exciting ways to enhance or take charge of your sexual pleasure is an amazing accomplishment. With so many items on the market however, it can be difficult to find the item that’s perfect for you. And take it from me, when you find the that one item, or items that send shivers down your spine or makes your toes curl in delight, you get a new appreciation not only for personal pleasure but the items that can help you enjoy it even more. Here are my personal tips.

Tip# 1- Buy a Sex Toy Based Off Of What You Like and Not What Someone Else Likes

–  It’s very easy to get caught up in the latest trends of what’s hot and new on the market. Or maybe you had a chat with a friend who gave you a recommendation. While many sex toys guarantee your pleasure, not every one of them can deliver that pleasure to you personally. Don’t just buy a sex toy because someone told you it gave them the best orgasms they ever had. Do your research first.

Tip#2- Get To Know Your Body

–  I personally would not recommend buying your first sex toy if you have never experienced self-manual stimulation. That’s right. Using your hands during masturbation allows you to take a deeper look into learning your body and what you like. You can create so many sensations with your hands and this information can help you immensely when you start your search. For example: Knowing the type of stimulation you like, how strong, and where.

Tip# 3- Know you’re Materials

– The best consumer is an informed consumer. Knowing the difference between sex toy materials can help you steer clear of items that may cause you irritation in your nether regions. I will say however that if you do purchase a product made of porous materials as many do with their first sex toy, use it, enjoy it, and then throw it out. Replace it with a body-safe option after using it for a while to see if it works for you. Porous sex toy materials have microscopic pores that trap bacteria and make them difficult/almost impossible to completely sanitize. Remember that a clean sex toy is a safe sex toy.

Tip#4- You First Sex Toy Doesn’t Have To Cost a Ton of Money

– While I won’t tell you how much money you should spend on a sex toy, it is important to note that you don’t need to purchase the most expensive item in the store. Just because it costs more, doesn’t mean it’s the best for you. Be sure to let the sales associate who is assisting you what your budget is. They will be able to help more efficiently in

Tip#5- It’s Okay If Your First Sex Toy Doesn’t Work for You

– Finding the perfect sex toy is not a perfect science. So if you don’t find one that works for you the first time around, it’s okay. Use that information, why you don’t like the toy you purchased, to help you find a sex toy that better suits your needs in the future.

In closing, always be mindful that sex toys are not created to replace a human and are not designed for that task. They can simply enhance the experience. Sex toys do not “desensitize” you or “stretch you out”. An always remember to go with what feels good, always starting slow then building up. No matter what sex toy you chose to purchase.
