What to Look for in a Beginner Sex Toy

If you are new, or just beginning to explore to sex toys, you may want to try a variety of different products. Here are some things you might consider, while shopping for your first sex toy:

  • Few or Simple Buttons
  • A Variety of Settings or Speeds

  • Body-Safe Materials (eg. Silicone, Glass, Steel, etc.)

  • Waterproof or Submersible Exteriors

  • Easy Grip Devices

Five Questions to Consider:

  • Does the toy feel natural in my hand?

  • Will the toy reach all my 'parts?'

  • Is the toy flexible/long/small/abstract enough for my tastes?

  • Will the toy fit between me and my partner?

  • Will the toy remain charged throughout the duration of my use?
