How to Choose What Sex Toy to Buy for the First Time

So you have decided to venture into the adult toy world for the first time. This can be a very exciting experience. But also a bit scary when you don’t know much about sex toys. So today I am here to help you find the best toy for your needs in your first adult purchase.

There are a few steps in helping choose the sex toy that’s right for you. The first thing that you want to ask yourself is, “What are my needs?” Is this toy for your personal use?

An important aspect of choosing an adult sex toy is the material the toy is made from.

  • Condoms: It is suggested to use condoms with some toys because of porosity and the lack of regulations some countries have on what sex toys can be made from. A very common material is Rubber. It is a non porous material that is firm and sturdy. It can be used for most traditional dildos or vibrators and give a realistic feel.
  • Jelly: Jelly is similar to Rubber, with a squishy feel. It is more realistic than rubber, but also more porous. So it has to be cleaned often.
  • Silicone: Silicone is a great material for sex toys. It is non porous, sturdy, and easily cleaned with boiling water and dishwasher safe for non electrical toys. Although there are electric toys that are waterproof, I don’t suggest testing them out with the powerful jets of a dishwasher.
  • Cyberskin: Cyberskin and similar products provide the most realistic feel. This type of material is mostly use for men’s sex toys. It has an extremely soft and squishy feel for comfort, but is extremely porous and tears easily. It must be cleaned with a special powder cleaning agent, unlike other toys.
  • Glass and Metal: Glass and Metal are two other great options for sex toy material. Glass is non porous and easily cleaned like Silicone. You can find many beautiful pieces made with various colors. But never choose a Glass toy made with paint on the outside, because some of these products are made in other countries where lead paint is still used. Instead, choose a blown glass piece. Be sure to check for cracks and chips every time before use. Metal is similar to Glass in porosity and being easily cleaned, but is a bit heavier than other sex toys. It’s also a great material to play with your senses as it can be warmed up or chilled with water.

Now that you know a little about your choice of material, let’s get into the sex toys!
