How to choose the right toy?
I had my second interview about a month ago. As I sat on the red couch unprepared and not at all nervous, the girl sitting next to me asked me the following question:
"To what should we pay attention to when buying erotic toys?"
In today's flood of different toys and novelties popping up in the market every day, it's understandable that you don't know where to start when you open a website with erotic toys, especially if you are about to make your first purchase. Advertising has never been as strong as it is today. Solo entertainment between the sheets is promoted as part of daily wellness, and the targets are mainly women. If we used to be happy with 'something that vibrates', today, that wouldn't be enough. Would you prefer to try a bullet vibrator, maybe just a clitoral one, a rabbit vibrator, a vibrating anal plug, a pulsator, a circular head vibrator, a magic wand, an erect dildo? Or rather a vibrator that will fill three holes in one go? Or maybe instead, you'd feel something 'real'? A silicone dildo, or rather a glass dildo?
The first step
I am thankful that I got a cheap bullet vibrator as the first toy. Why? Because after years of using it, I've figured out what it is that I don't want from a vibrator. For example, I was panicking about finding and replacing batteries and a not ergonomically designed toy. Although my body was screaming to get something for my clitoris, I overheard it a bit and bought myself a classic vibrator. I was sorry later, but at the same time, I found that I am also a girl with a clit for stronger vibrations. Slowly it seemed to me what would take me to heights - a bullet vibrator with a clitoral attachment - Magic Motion Flamingo. Even though I was far from heaven and closer to hell while using this toy, I knew what I was missing. And so I went on, until today when I am already crossing the boundaries. It is a slightly worn sentence, but it is crucial to know your body, peach, and know what suits you best. Is it pressure on the G-spot, on the clitoris, or can pinching your nipples take you to orgasm, or is anal stimulation enough for you?
When this becomes clearer to you, you are well on your way to choosing the suitable toy for yourself. Great, clitoral vibrator! You search the internet for erotic shops, click on the first hit, select the tab 'for women', 'vibrators', 'clitoral vibrators', and… Seventy more or less similar vibrators show up. To narrow down the selection a bit, clearly set an upper limit on the money you are willing to spend on an erotic toy. You don't want to lament the choice of an extremely expensive vibrator that will remind you every day that you would probably enjoy it more if you wasted money on coffee with friends.
The second step
Your selection is likely to shrink quite a bit. Then there's some improvisation: put five vibrators in the basket that have caught your eye. Only at this point will it be time to review the specifications of each of them:
- What and how many vibration power levels it offers (the more extensive the range, the more likely it is to fit a more sensitive and less sensitive clitoris or G-spot)
- Shape (fundamental if you're buying G-spot vibrators, but don't rely too much on sentences screaming at you that this toy has the best shape for you)
- Charging method (batteries, charger, magnetic charger, solar cells)
- Material (if the product is made of silicone, it should be medical, pay attention to bulges and dents in the glass dildos, avoid plastic toys)
- Warranty (crucial if you are buying an expensive vibrator)
When you get a more crystal clear picture, remember for a second how men buy a lawnmower, a knife, or a car. Most start reading product descriptions on foreign sites and paying attention to user reviews. That's where the last piece of the puzzle lies when buying an erotic toy, so read the reviews, see what bothers other buyers and what they're excited about.
Getting caught in a trap while choosing erotic toys
The most giant trap that almost all users have fallen into is good advertising and high-flying words from the manufacturer and seller. If you have a collection of toys, you like to try new things, and you know where your limits are, you are already a sovereign shopper enough. However, if you are buying a toy for the first time, study the product well and carefully. Don't fall for discount codes, a text from an influencer that praises everything she can get her hands on, like an erotic toy, even if she doesn't seem to have any real experience with them or economic price offered by some Chinese vibrator manufacturers.
Price is probably the second biggest trap, right behind the advertising of superficial influencers. At a meager price, check what you will get for your money - pay attention to the material, charging method, the possibility of different vibrations. The most worrying is the product's material, which you will put into the peach in the coming years. Therefore, you should not look for shortcuts. Even higher-priced toys can disappoint you. The material may be appropriate, the charging time short, the operation long and quiet, but it will not take you to orgasm. The price can be a double-edged sword, and I don't know the cure for it.
To get the most out of a toy, listen to yourself, your body, and only then listen to other users, others who are happy to share their experience. Of course, you can still make the wrong choice, but chances are slim if you consider your own body than taking the advice of people who would do anything to sell you a product.
