If you have not previously bought sex toys, doing so for the first time is a bit of a minefield. Unfortunately, buying sex toys is not one of those things that we discuss with others. As a result, it is often hard to find the right advice. However, we hope to change all of that. Please feel free to carry on reading our guide to adult sex toys.

1. Buying Sex Toys Online Vs An Adult Store

Most of us are a little bit shy when it comes to buying sex toys. Visiting an adult store, or sex shop, is something most of us are reluctant to do. These days, thanks to the Internet, most sex toys are sold online. Needless to say, there are both advantages and disadvantages to buying adult toys online.

One of the advantages of buying sex toys in a store, is that you can see what they look like and touch them. It is important that you like the feel of a sex toy. For instance, when you shop in store, you can find out what kind of material you like. If you don’t like the feel of rubber, there are other materials that you can try.

What about the selection? One of the major advantages of buying adult toys online, is that the selection is often better. Stores are limited for space and may not always keep such a large selection in stock. Another advantage of shopping online, is that you can take your time. You can browse through endless web pages until you find the right toy for you.

The cost of sex toys online is often lower than shopping in store. Don’t forget that stores have overheads and need to charge more.

2. How Many Toys Should I Buy?

If this is your first time buying sex toys, it is best to buy one. That way you can find out if you are comfortable with using a sex toy. Once you have played with your new toy for a while, you can always expand your collection. Take it one step at a time.

Should I buy a sex toy for my partner? There is no reason why you should not buy a sex toy for your partner. But, that being said, it is perhaps best not to buy one as a birthday present or Christmas present. Buy it as a surprise gift and find out what your partner thinks. If you both enjoy playing with the sex toy, you can always buy more sex toys.

3. Don’t Forget The Accessories

Is there such a thing as sex toy accessories? Of course, there is. While you are shopping, you may want to consider adding products such as lube or massage oils. They are fun little extras that you and your partner can put to good us.

Remember to buy your sex toys from a reputable online store. Some brands are better than non-branded products. In fact, it is worth paying a bit extra for your first sex toy.

Have fun playing with your sex toys, and don’t forget to look after them.
