How to Buy a Sex Toy You’ll Love
Sex toys are fun ways to increase pleasure, experience better orgasms, and have fun — alone or with a partner. But some people hesitate to buy themselves a toy.
What keeps you from buying a new sex toy? Are there too many options to choose from? You’re not sure it will work? You don’t know what you like?
Those questions are common for people shopping for sex toys, especially if it’s not something you do very often. With a few tips and tricks, you can buy a toy that you’ll love and want to use as often as possible!
Figure Out What Gets You Off
Before you can buy a sex toy you’re going to love, you need to know what gets you off. Yep, we’re telling you to masturbate, as if you needed extra encouragement. Touch yourself as much as you can, turn yourself on, and get yourself off. Once the post-orgasmic haze passes, think about what you enjoyed most.
- For people with vulvas, did you touch your clit or your g-spot? Which one did you enjoy most? Or did you love both internal and external stimulation?
- If you have a penis, do you love a tight grip, textures, or prolonging your own orgasm? Or is it all of the above?
No matter what you enjoy, there’s a sex toy that can help you get more of it. But if you don’t know what you enjoy before you go shopping, you’re less likely to choose something that works with your body.
Check Out Your Options
Once you know what kind of stimulation you’re looking for, it’s time to start browsing. Shopping at an online sex toy store is the probably the easiest way because you look through hundreds, if not thousands of options at one time.
- G-spot vibrators or dildos are great for internal stimulation.
- Body massagers, bullet vibrators, and clit cuddlers provide intense clitoral stimulation.
- Cock rings keep your penis harder and prolong your orgasm.
- Pocket pussies, masturbation sleeves, and Fleshlights simulate real penetration with added texture and a firm grip.
- Butt plugs, anal sex toys, and prostate massagers are great for anal stimulation.
Some sex toys serve multiple purposes — dildos are great for vaginal and anal penetration, and any vibrator can be a clitoral vibrator, though they can’t all hit your g-spot. So if you enjoy different types of sensation, feel free to look for a toy that can make you feel good in multiple ways.
Decide Between Battery or Manual Options
Some sex toys won’t give you a choice. If you buy a vibrator, there is no “manual” option. You’ll either charge the battery by USB or need to buy batteries. And for dildos, if you get one that uses a battery, it’ll likely be called a vibrator. But other sex toys do give you the option, and it’s up to you to decide which you want.
- Cock rings
- Butt plugs and anal toys
- Prostate massagers
- Pocket pussies and strokers
Battery-powered toys offer more sensations and stimulation. Manual sex toys are quieter and more discreet. There’s no right choice to make, only what works best for you.
Read the Reviews
Not every sex toy at Caliente Adult Superstore has been reviewed, but when you can find them, read the reviews. Googling a specific sex toy can often yield multiple reviews from different people. Read them carefully and look for similarities between yourself and the person who tried it.
Everyone has a different experience with sex toys, and it’s usually based on their personal preferences as well as differences in their body. To have a better shot of buying a sex toy you’ll love and use for a long time is to read as many perspectives as possible. And once you’ve tried a new sex toy, review it so you can help other people when they’re ready to shop.
There is no single perfect sex toy that everyone loves. Sometimes a popular, beloved toy isn’t quite right for you. It doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you, only that it wasn’t the right toy for your needs and preferences. By doing a little bit of research — yes, masturbation can count as “research” — and shopping around, you can find sex toys that you’ll love and use for a long time.
