Tips on Choosing Your First Sex Toy
So you made the decision to purchase your first sex toy. Congratulations! Making a
conscientious decision to find new and exciting ways to enhance and take charge of
your pleasure is an amazing accomplishment. With so many items on the market, it
can be difficult to find the perfect item that’s just right for you. Take it from me,
when you find that item or items that send shivers down your spine and makes your
toes curl, you get a new sense of appreciation for personal pleasure and the items
that can help you enjoy it even more. Here are some tips you can use when making
a sex toy purchase for the first time.
Tip# 1- Buy something Based off of What You Like, Not What Someone Else
Not many people will say this, but sensation is subjective, just like taste. It’s very
easy to get caught up in the latest trends of what’s hot and fresh on the market. Or
maybe you had a chat with a friend who gave you a recommendation. While many
sex toys guarantee pleasure, not all of them can deliver that pleasure to
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. See if the specific type of stimulation
the toy grantees to give is something you would like or would be open to trying.
Tip#2- Get To Know Your Body
I personally would never recommend buying a first-time sex toy if you have never
masturbated using just your hands. Using hands during masturbation allows you to
learn your body in a way that only you can understand. After all, there’s only one
are the expert of your own body. You can create so many different
sensations with your hands, and this information can help you immensely when you
start your search for your first sex toy. Knowing the type of stimulation you like, how
strong, and where can help you with deciding if you like vibrations, pulsations,
vibrations with patterns, non-vibrating items, toys with texture, girth, and much
Tip# 3- Know your 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. It isn’t an uncommon practice to purchase a sex toy made of not so
great materials just to get a feel of it and its sensations before upgrading to a toy
with more bells and whistles and more importantly, body-safe materials. If you do
decide to purchase a product made of porous materials, use it, enjoy it, and throw it
out ASAP. There is always a body-safe alternative to any sex toy you could think of.
The reason why sex educators wave the naughty finger at toys made with porous
materials is because they have microscopic pores that trap bacteria and make them
difficult and practically impossible to sanitize completely. A clean sex toy is a safe
sex toy. Additionally, a sex toy made of non-porous materials is always easier to
clean and require very little maintenance.
Tip#4- You First Sex Toy Doesn’t Have to Cost an arm and leg
While we 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 break the bank by getting the most
expensive item in the store. Just because it costs more, doesn’t mean it’s the best
one for you. The misconception that spending more money on a sex toy means that
it will be perfect for you is false. You can get a great sex toy that gives you amazing
orgasms at any price point and budget. Once again, a great sex toy is determined
by what your body likes, not how much it costs.
Tip#5- It’s Okay If Your First Sex Toy Doesn’t Work for You
Finding the sex toy that’s right for you is not a perfect science. So if you don’t find
one that works for you the first time around, it’s okay. Most people don’t. 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. Majority of people (myself included) who
have purchased their first sex toy have more than one in their collection. And are
always adding to it.
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.” And always remember to go with
what feels good, always starting slow then building up. No matter what sex toy you chose to purchase.
