5 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Buying A Sex Toy
We get it: with the hundreds of sex toy options out there, picking out your next sex toy can seem a bit daunting. Once you know what you're looking for, sex toy shopping becomes a lot easier, but for your first couple of toys, you don't quite know what you're looking for. Luckily, we're here to help. These simple five questions will help you narrow down your sex toy options dramatically:
What Area Do You Want to Pleasure?
Before doing anything else, you need to decide what area of your body you want to pleasure. Different sex toys were designed to pleasure different parts of the body. If you're looking for clitoral orgasms, buying an anal toy isn't going to be too much help. So before you delve too far into the world of sex toys, make sure to figure out what area you want to pleasure. Common areas include: clitoral, vaginal, anal, nipples, penile, prostate, and the g-spot.
What's Your Budget?
The other helpful deciding factor will be your budget. While choosing a pleasure area will narrow down your options quite a bit, your budget will narrow it down even further. Sex toys can range from $5 all the way up to $400 for standard toys. So before you start your shopping spree in earnest, figure out how much money you can comfortably afford to spend - and try to choose toys that are around that limit. Keep in mind, though: in general, the more expensive the sex toy is, the more features that it comes with.
How Large Is It?
Especially when looking for any insertable toy, the thickness of the shaft can make a huge difference. While an inch or two on a clitoral toy or masturbation sleeve might not matter as much, an added inch in diameter on a dildo can make the difference between an extremely-pleasurable toy and an unusable sex toy for you. Make sure to pay attention to the sex toy's listed measurements to ensure that you can use your new toy - and that it'll be an enjoyable experience.
Don't have any idea of what size would be a great size for you? Consider using your fingers as a benchmark. During your next masturbation session, keep a tape measure handy. During your masturbation, explore how many fingers you like to comfortably insert - and how far you insert those fingers. Slide them out and take a measurement at that exact point. Whether you choose to measure diameter or circumference, you can use those measurements to compare for purchasing potential toys. Now you have a good idea of what your body would like!
How Does Your Ideal Toy Get Power?
Nowadays, sex toys tend to be powered in one of two ways: via rechargeable Lithium batteries (that charge just like your cell phone!) or through tried-and-true removable AA or AAA batteries. Do you have a preference? If you regularly breeze through multi-hour masturbation sessions, you might prefer the battery-operated toys. When your toy dies, you just switch out the batteries and you're back in business! If you travel or regularly use your toy for short spurts, you might prefer the convenience of never having to worry about picking up more batteries at the grocery store.
What Does It Look Like?
Just like in real-life, looks aren't everything, but when it comes to your sex life, they do matter a little bit! When picking out your ideal sex toy, make sure it's something you like to look at - and find inviting. Everyone has their own personal preferences about what makes a great sex toy. Maybe you prefer realistic coloring - or maybe you prefer not-realistic coloring. Whatever it is, make sure to pick a sex toy that fits those needs.
While there are a lot more questions you could ask yourself when picking out your new sex toy, these five questions will get you started down the right path. With the hundreds of options available out there, it can seem difficult to narrow down your options, but we have faith in you! Take your time, think about what you want and how you want it, and find toys that work for that.
