The Ultimate Guide To Sex Toy Types For Beginners

Shopping for sex toys online can be daunting, especially if you’re new to the game.

But, if you’ve found your way to our blog, then you’ve come to the right place.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at adult toys, which ones are best for you, and leave you with the ultimate guide to sex toy types for beginners.

If you’re curious about tips to make your adult toy purchase more enjoyable, we’ve got a guide here, too!


First on our list is the iconic dildo.

Whether it’s being used for solo play, or with a partner, these toys are great for anybody looking to venture into the adult toy sphere and are versatile toys to boot.

Suction Cup Dildos

Suction cup dildos are great for people who want a more realistic experience of being able to ride something the way they would a partner. All you have to do is stick it onto a surface and go to town - though we recommend the shower for some extra fun.

Double-Sided Dildos

As the name implies, double-sided dildos are a dildo with a head on both ends, making it great for couples' play.


No penis? No problem! All you need is a strapon to fill that hole (no pun intended). These can come in a variety of options, but we suggest the classics for beginners.


Vibrators are (arguably) the most iconic adult toy out there, and have been around since the 1880s. They’re also a great option for couples looking to take things to the next level without breaking the bank!


The iconic wand is well known for its long life and strong vibrations, making it amazing for couples’ play, or for spending time alone.

Finger Vibrators

More discreet than the rest, finger vibrators are attached to the finger to add a different sensation over and above the usual foreplay.

Cock Rings

Something that’s just as much for the gents as it is for the ladies, cock rings are a great adult toy for beginners. Simply pop it on at the base of the penis. If it vibrates, you can also turn it on, and let the fun begin!


Up there with wands, bullet vibrators are sleek, simple, and easy to use - a great idea for beginners.

Internal Vibrators

A great adult toy for those who are slightly more daring, internal vibrators are designed to be inserted inside the body. Some have remotes, making it great to give to your partner when you’re out for a unique date experience. 

Combination Vibrators

Some vibrators take things a step further, and focus on more holes than one!

Combination vibrators are most commonly seen in the form of the world-famous rabbit and are a great introduction to anal play.

Clit Suction Toys

These adult toys are designed to focus on the clitoris, and come with a suction function, making it a great form of foreplay.

Ben-Wa Balls

These aren’t just great for strengthening your pelvic floor muscles, folks!

Ben-Wa Balls are inserted into the vagina and can be used in BDSM play as a form of domination.

Masturbation Sleeves

We haven’t forgotten about you, gents!

Masturbation sleeves are, essentially, a substitute for a mouth, anus, or vagina.

They can vibrate, rotate, or even talk to you while you’re having fun, and can also be used by your partner if you’re looking to change things up!

Anal Beads

Something for those who enjoy some backdoor fun, anal beads are designed to be inserted into the anus, and then slowly removed to create an intense sensation that can lead to multiple orgasms.

Butt Plugs

When it comes to anal play, no adult toy is more well-known than the butt plug.

Some people enjoy inserting and removing them, some enjoy leaving them in, and some enjoy using them to train their anus to take larger objects later on. 

Whatever your preference, butt plugs are a fantastic toy for beginners looking to learn how it’s done.


When it comes to shopping for sex toys online or in-store, it’s okay to be nervous! But it’s supposed to be a fun experience, and we hope that this guide will help you walk away knowing which toys you want to look for when you begin your journey into the world of adult toys!
