What is the Right Sex Toy For You?
So you think you’re ready to buy a sex toy… are you really ready? Many people approach the purchase of adult toys thinking that whatever looks interesting will do the trick. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Buying sex toys online has never been easier as most folks are a little shy about going into an adult toy store to make this type of purchase. Purchasing your toys online makes it a wonderful convenience. However, there is research that needs to be done to be sure you get the item that is exactly right for you. You need to understand your body and personal preferences, everyone is different. You need to think about exactly what gives you the best stimulation in the areas that please you the most. If you are extremely sensitive to clitoral stimulation, don’t buy The Rabbit to start off with. Although the speed and vibration are adjustable, you might find it uncomfortable in the beginning. If you need clitoral stimulation for orgasm, a standard vibrator may not do the trick for you.
It is also important to know your anatomy. If you buy a vibrator that is too large, it will probably be uncomfortable. If you buy one that is too small, you may have to work too hard to reach your climax. Chasing an orgasm is very frustrating so you want to be sure that you have the right adult sex toy that is perfect for your needs.
Sex toys that vibrate have some unique considerations. There are battery operated toys with the controls “on-board” on the toy itself. Other vibrators have the controls in a battery operated remote. You also have waterproof and non-waterproof sex toys. There are loads of products out there and it is well worth the research to avoid very expensive trial and error.
Another thing that you need to consider is lubrication and the materials used in manufacturing your sex toy. You have the choice of oil-based, silicone-based or water-based lubricant. If your toy is made with hard plastic or glass, using oil-based or silicone based lubricants is fine. If your toy is manufactured with any type of silicon or jelly rubber, you need to use a water-based lubricant to extend the life of your sex toy. Also – oil based lubricants should not be used with female products, as they can cause infections. Women are also better off with water or silicone based products. Oil based lubricants should be reserved for male use only.
Clean your toys! It is best to clean your sex toy before AND after every use. You don’t need anything special, just a mild unscented soap and water. If you want to be extra safe, there are some great sanitizing solutions you can use AFTER cleaning with soap and water. If your toy is not cleaned before and after each use, you are risking introducing harmful bacteria in a very sensitive area.
