How to Choose Your First Sex Toy

When you’re buying your first sex toy your budget will probably be one of the biggest factors in your choice. Starting with less expensive sex toys is a good way to experiment, but just getting the cheapest thing in the sale without thinking about if it’s right for you may lead to disappointment. Remember to look at customer reviews as well as price.

Luxury sex toys, like the Lelo Mona Rechargeable Vibe, really are worth the extra spend: they’re made from better quality materials, they’ll last longer and they’re usually rechargeable so you can recoup the cost of batteries. However, it’s sensible to know what you like before you splash out on an expensive toy that will be with you for the long haul.

Check the Details

When you’ve spotted a toy in your budget that takes your fancy, check the details on the product page carefully.

How it Measures Up: Find out just how big that toy is. More important than the overall length is the insertable length, as is the circumference (which is measured at the widest girth of the toy). Will this be a comfortable fit for you?

How it Feels: A toy can look rigid in the product picture, when it’s actually a flexible friend. Check the nitty gritty of the material specifications here, and also check whether you can take the toy into the bathroom for underwater play – submersible toys are also easier to keep clean.

Power and Speed: Check exactly what types of vibration are in store, as well as what type of power the toy takes and what batteries you need for your sex toy.
