We’ve been asked regularly to write an article on choosing your first sex toy – whilst 60 percent of women admit to owning one or thinking about buying more pleasure items, there are still 40 percent of women who haven’t.
From experience, we know this can be down to a number of factors: knowledge, fear or quite plainly not interested from a moral stance. They may also have been bought a toy from a lover that didn’t float their boat because it looked menacing for a first experience.
So, what would a newbie need to consider when choosing a sex toy?
There are a number of issues which we will cover in this article that hopefully will help the inquisitive newbie in their thirst for new adventures:
What kind of pleasure are you looking for?
Toys perform can fulfill number of different sexual tasks, depending on your individual desires. Are you looking for stimulation of the clitoris, g-spot or both?
Not wanting to scare the horses may we suggest for starters, clitoral stimulation – you may already be familiar with bringing yourself to orgasm by your own hand or with the help of a lover. In which case a clit stim toy is a great option for you to start out in your pursuit of pleasure.
Not forgetting a good lubricant, which is also an excellent pleasure item in itself and should always be used for self pleasure and when using a toy. Dry never did anything for anyone and the slippery sensation of a good lube heightens sensation.
Things you may want to consider:
Look and Feel
Size and shape are vital in choosing the right toy for the task. Clitoral toys are less intimidating and tend to look like a discreet massager, pen or stone.
Intensity may also be important, how powerful will the toy be and how noisy? Thankfully these days most good toys are virtually silent. So the neighbours or other people in your household will be unaware of your twilight adventures.
Compact toys are also very portable. Some can be worn, put in a handbag or come with their very own discreet carry pouch.
Does your toy require batteries? Or is it re-chargeable. Both have varying benefits depending on circumstance.
The type of material a toy is made of is not only important for the sensation it gives but is vital to your wellbeing.
Some toys still contain an additive that leaches a toxin into your body and causes hormone disruption – phthalates has previously been used to make rubber jelly-like finishes for a natural feel in toys such as rabbit vibrators.
We suggest only choosing luxury toys made from silicone, metal, safety glass or hard ABS plastic. Little Shop of Erotic Delights only stock body safe toys – we believe that it’s the right thing to do. If we wouldn’t use a certain toy, then we wouldn’t want to sell it to our customers.
Note: A toy made with phthalates will feel jelly-like and smell highly of a chemical, a bit like nail varnish remover or strong pear drops. If you already suspect you have one, we advise using a condom over this toy or better still, replacing it completely to be on the safe side.
The other benefit of choosing a luxury body safe sex toy is that they house deluxe functions often able to multi-task where not possible with a hand or mouth and are made of the highest grade materials, not only for pleasure but for durability.
