5 Tips On Buying Adult Sex Toys For Beginners

  1. Don’t be ashamed, this should be fun.

A lot of people are embarrassed to buy sex toys online but remember that it is supposed to be a fun and exciting experience for you and your partner. There is no reason at all to be ashamed. Exploring the world of adult sex toys is a chance for you to discover your inner desires and fantasies. Do your research because not all sex toys online are authentic – and some may have imitation products which may break easily or look tacky and cheap.

  1. Shop smart and shop safe.

If you want to buy adult toys online, first and foremost, shop at a reputable online store. Professional sexy toy stores will clearly define exactly what you’re buying. Read the descriptions of each toy you’re considering and make sure its features line up with what you’re looking for.

Reviews are valuable too. Not only are they direct word-of-mouth recommendations, they're also more trusted than descriptions. Online reviews allow buyers to easily compare features and prices of similar products from different companies. Always read through reviews before buying a sex toy online, especially if you’re new to it. Just remember that other users might not have your specific needs or preferences in mind, so don’t rely too heavily on what another person has said about a toy.

  1. Feel free to explore.

Unless you know exactly what you’re looking for, you should consider experimenting with different kinds of toys. From vibrating to strap-on toys – the world of adult sex toys truly does have something for everyone. No matter how distinct your preferences are. So shop around, step out of your comfort zone if you dare, and make sure you have fun!

  1. Vibrators are great.

Beginners, you can’t go wrong with a vibrator. Vibrators come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find one that works well with your anatomy. For the ladies, most vibes have a clitoral attachment, which will help get you warmed up before penetration. And for the gents, vibrating cock rings can make penetration even more fun, because they increase blood flow to erectile tissue and can be very relaxing. So, when in doubt, enjoy the good vibes with a vibrator.

  1. Getting into the swing of things.

Research adult sex toys before making your purchase. There are a lot of ways to have fun when you’re an adult, and if you’re just getting started with your first sex toy, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start.

  1. Make sure the packaging is discreet.

First-time buyers of adult sex toys will probably be worried about when their online delivery arrives and whether the packaging will be discreet. While most stores that sell sex toys online and in store know that not every customer will want their kinks to be out there in the open, and as a result created more discreet packaging. At Loveangels, we ensure our packaging is so discreet it could be sent to the Vatican!

Best Sex Toys For Beginners 101

Before you ask yourself: Where do I even begin? Here are our favourite sex toys for beginners to help you figure out what’s best for you.

  1. Dildos

Dildos are an excellent choice for beginners considering adult sex toys. Dildos are anything phallic-shaped or vaguely phallic-shaped which are designed for penetration. There are different kinds of dildos. You can get single-ended or standard dildos, double-ended, and even textured dildos – all which can be experimented with for various sensations during penetration. 

  1. Vibrators

Vibrators may be the best adult sex toy for beginners to boot. From external vibrators like penis or wand vibrators to internal or combination vibrators, there’s a vibrator out there that’ll bring all the good vibes to you. If you’re looking to ramp up your sexual experiences, vibrators should be first on your list of sex toys.

  1. Kinky Toys

If you fantasise about eroticising different erogenous zones and creating surprising sensations, beginner kink toys may be exactly what you didn’t know you needed. Think satin blindfolds, feather teasers, and handcuffs – is your heart racing yet? These are the best way to experiment with adult sex toys as a newbie.

  1. Miscellaneous Toys For Vulva Owners

If none of these have tickled your fancy so far, there are still plenty of pleasure product ideas for vulva owners. Try a clit suction toy if you enjoy the sensation of receiving oral, or thrusters if you are looking for a sex toy that provides a thrusting sensation. But when in doubt, you can always opt for the ever-popular rabbit.

  1. Miscellaneous Toys For Penis Owners

 If you think sex toys for penis owners start and end with masturbation sleeves, you are mistaken. Pulsators use oscillating tech to get you off instead of using vibration or thrusting. While automatic masturbators do all the work for you. And of course, cock rings – typically made out of silicone, are designed to offer stronger erections and sometimes delayed ejaculation and depending on the design offer stimulation for your partner too.
