How to Choose Your First Sex Toy

Mar 12, 2024
Walking into a sex shop or browsing online can introduce you to an endless stream of vibrators, dildos, clit-suckers, and more products designed to make you orgasm. With such a variety out there, it can be daunting to determine which toy is right for you — especially if you've never bought one before.

With so much selection, choosing your first toy can be a daunting task. We've got suggestions for how to choose a Vibrator, Masturbator, and Couple toys, but before we get to those, there are three general key considerations: function, and price,Materials.


If it's your first toy, Figure out your budget, but don't let the price tags deter you,  There are high-quality yet affordable toys out there. Finding what's right for you may take some experimentation, but there is nothing more happy than spending a lot of money on a toy you like. The less expensive toys don't last as long, but once you figure what you like you can always invest in a better quality toy if you like.


Materials are another important factor to consider. For vibrators, look for medical-grade silicone and/or ABS plastic, which is non-porous and thus easy to sanitize. What the toy is made of also determines how to care for it. For example, silicone lube will degrade silicone toys, so you must use water-based or oil-based lube. 


Ask yourself some questions to drill down what type of toy you're after:

1.Are you going to use it in the bath or shower? Hunt for a submersible toy, not just water-resistant. Search for phrases like "water submersible," "completely waterproof," or "bathtub safe."

2.Do you want a toy that's USB chargeable or battery-powered? Corded or cordless? Think about which would be the most convenient for you. I recommend USB, because nothing is worse than having a dead vibrator and no batteries around. 

3.Perhaps most importantly, determine what sensations you want out of a toy. "Vibrators are complicated pieces of equipment," said Engle, and not all vibes are alike. Do you want:

4.Pinpointed clit stimulation? You may want a smaller vibrator. Suction over rumbles? Try a clit-sucker.

Or, you may not want vibration at all. There are plenty of toys, like dildos or anal beads, that prioritize internal pleasure without a motor.
