Useful Tips for Choosing the Right Adult Toys for You


It’s not always easy choosing the perfect adult toy, particularly if you haven’t got much experience with them. There are lots of different types, sizes, shapes, and materials of toys to choose from. In addition to thinking about all of this, you need to ascertain exactly what you’re looking for in a toy before you can buy one.

Some other factors that you need to consider are cost and the manufacturer from whom you are buying the toy.

In this article, we will explore all of these things and more in order to help you find the perfect adult toy:

Who’s the Toy For?

There are toys made and marketed to specific genders. If you’re a woman, then you won’t derive much benefit from owning a cock ring, for example. You need to take your gender into account when you’re searching for sex toys. Most retailers will specify which gender a toy is for in the product’s description. If they don’t then don’t just assume that it’s a unisex toy. If a toy’s description isn’t clear, then contact the vendor by email or on live chat to find out more about it.

What’s Your Purpose?

There are lots of different types of sex toys. Some are designed for couples, others are designed to be used to warm up before sex, and some are made for solo use. You need to be clear about what you want a sex toy for before you start searching for one. When you know exactly what you want, navigating the complex world of sex toys will be a lot easier. If you’re not sure about what you want [or why], then you’re more likely to make a mistake.

If you want a toy to enhance sex with your partner, for example, you might want to consider a penis sleeve. According to the folks over at, penis sleeves can be a lot of fun and are very satisfying. Remember: If you buy an adult toy and take it out of its packaging, the chances are that you won’t be able to refund it.


Something that you need to take into consideration is your toy’s durability. You don’t want to buy a toy that’s made from cheap, flimsy materials. Not only does this increase the chances of your toy breaking, but it can also impact how effective your toy is. Ideally, you should buy from brands that craft their products from hardy and sustainable materials. The world’s governments are increasingly concerned with sustainability. If you support brands who aren’t creating sustainable products, then you are a part of the problem.


You also need to take size into account, especially if you’re buying a vibrator or dildo. If you buy a toy that’s incorrectly sized, you can hurt yourself and ruin your experience. If you’re buying a toy for penetration but haven’t been penetrated before, then you need to start off small. If you start off with the largest size possible, then you will give yourself problems. You need to be completely comfortable with a toy’s size before you use it.


In addition to size, you need to factor in appearance. Some toys appear very lifelike, while others do not. If you want a toy that looks realistic, then you might have to pay a little more. If you don’t really mind, then you can just buy an entry-level, brightly colored toy. In terms of realism, you can buy dildos that have veins and are flesh-colored. The same is also true for fleshlights.

Sound Effects


Some sex toys come with built-in microphones, making sound effects possible. If you’re buying a toy for roleplay or just want a more immersive experience, then sound effects are definitely recommended. Sound effects will include moans, grunts, and breathing noises. They’re especially effective when used with toys like fleshlights. You can also watch pornography or use a VR headset to make your sexual experiences more immersive.

Internet Connectivity

Lots of sex toys also have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. Devices like these allow you to connect to another person’s toy, even from across the world. This is great if you’re going to be practicing mutual or long-distanced masturbation. You’re able to set specific speeds and intensities, which you will both feel at the same time. This can make mutual masturbation much more intimate. Some of these devices also come with cameras built into them, so that you can video call.

Cost and Budget

Cost is something that you need to give a lot of thought to. Sex toys come in a variety of different price brackets. Some are incredibly expensive, while others are very reasonably priced. If you don’t work out a budget you could end up spending a fortune on a sex toy. Before you begin browsing, try to work out an amount that’s realistic for you to spend. It’s also worth checking out retailers who are offering discounts, promotional codes, or are holding sales. With Christmas coming up, lots of retailers are holding sales at the moment, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding a discount.

Brand Reliability


Another important factor to consider when you’re shopping for sex toys is the brand’s reliability. You don’t want to buy from a brand that’s poorly rated and hasn’t got a good reputation in the industry. Try to stick to brands that have built solid names for themselves.

You can find out about a brand’s reliability and commitment to delivering quality products by reading reviews and checking out internet forums. There’s a large community of sex toy users online, particularly on websites like Reddit. It’s definitely worth visiting one of these forums and chatting to other users. They might be able to give you insight into brands worth buying from and might be able to offer advice. You should also check out videos and blogs, although watch out for influencers who might encourage you to buy products from a brand that sponsors them.

It’s not always easy choosing the perfect sex toy, but with this article, it just became a lot simpler. Make sure to take all of this article’s suggestions into account, so that you can make the best decision and buy the perfect toy for yourself.
