Adult Toys 101: How to Find the Right Sex Toy to Fit Your Needs

Trying to get off?

Sex toys can be a great tool to use with a partner or alone. In fact, fifty-three percent of Americans used sex toys to improve their experience in 2019. But, choosing the best toy for your wants and experiences can be overwhelming.

Check out our guide to help you find the top adult toys for your needs.

Consider Your Use

First, you should think about what you plan to use a sex toy for. Couples who are shopping for a sex toy together may have different needs than someone shopping for their individual use.

Your specific reason should also be considered when you’re shopping for a sex toy. You may be looking to try something new. You may just be looking to replace your good old favorite vibrator. You may want something to solve particular sexual issues you’re having, or to spice up your relationship with your partner.

Depending on your reason, different adult toys may be the best choice for addressing whatever your purpose is.

Think About What You Like When Buying Adult Toys

When buying sex toys, you should think about what feels good and how you like to be touched. This will help you find sex toys that enhance your specific experience.

Some people may like external stimulus more than internal stimulus, for example. That may make the difference between purchasing dildos or purchasing wand massagers.

Some toys can do multiple things at once, if you’re looking for something that offers a combination of different sensations. You can even look into toys that offer double-penetration, to get on that next level.

Some people may prefer toys that address the back door. Then, you can look into butt plugs, anal beads, and some types of dildos.

Depending on your physical body, you may also be interested in cock rings or other sex toys that are made for people with penises.

No matter what you’re looking for, there’s certainly plenty of adult toys you can try out.

Style is also a factor to consider when shopping for sex toys. Some may be less discreet than others. Some may be intimidating, and may be offputting to use. Others may simply be prettier, or more stylistically appealing to you. That’s a completely valid factor when choosing a sex toy.

Choose the Right Type of Sex Toy For Your Needs

It can be easy to get overwhelmed with all of the different types of sex toys, particularly when you’re new to the world. How do you find the right type of sex toys?

Once you decide on what type of sex toy you’re purchasing, you’ll want to decide what specific model is right for you. Not all vibrators are created equal, for example. Different makes and models have different vibration settings, different add-ons or features, are shaped differently, and are a wide variety of different sizes.

That’s why it’s so important to think about what you specifically like, so that you will be sure to find the best possible toy and you’ll have a great time using it.

There are other factors to consider when you’re buying a sex toy, too. If you have allergies or skin sensitivities, for example, you should carefully check the materials the sex toy you’re considering is made of to ensure that it won’t cause you irritation or any other problems that could result. Some materials that sex toys can be made of include silicone, glass, wood, hard plastic, stainless steel, and more.

You also need to make sure you’re aware of the cleaning instructions for a toy before you purchase it, to ensure that you’re keeping yourself and your partners safe and healthy when you’re using a sex toy. Ensure that you have the right products to properly clean your sex toys.

If you have dexterity problems or other physical limitations, look for sex toys that can be adapted for your use. People who live in apartments or other communal spaces may want to look into quieter options, since the motors in some vibrators and other sex toys can be quite loud.

Know Your Budget When Shopping For Sex Toys

Sex toys can get very pricey, depending on what type you choose and where you choose to buy it. It’s important to know what your price range is in advance, and to know what the general price range for the toy you’re looking for is, to make sure you’re getting the most possible quality for the least possible money.

Vibrators, for example, can be as cheap as ten dollars or cost several hundred. But, vibrators on the cheap end are more likely to be made of worse materials, and are more likely to fall apart or stop working more quickly.

But, just because your vibrator or sex toy is more expensive doesn’t mean it’s right for you. That’s why you need to think about what exactly you’re looking for. If you don’t want a sex toy that can connect to an app for use remotely, for example, you should stay away from those products, which can also be more expensive.
