When people first start shopping for sex toys, they’re more focused on what each toy does than something boring like its actual size. But there’s nothing worse than getting a brand-new sex toy only to discover the hard way that it’s too big or too small!
Sex toys and vibrators come in a wide range of sizes. Some mini vibes measure just a half inch long and barely a quarter inch wide, while double dildos can easily stretch up to 18 inches long! While there’s a lot less options when it comes to the width of a toy, a small difference can and will feel like a big deal when you try to use it. All this variety can make it hard to find a toy that fits your body perfectly, but Adam & Eve has developed a few time-tested methods over the years to make the process easier.
Method #1 – Measuring Up
You can’t go wrong if you pick a sex toy that’s roughly the same size as your partner or your current favorite toy. Simply measure your partner to figure out his length and width and then look for a toy to match. If you always wished your partner was a little bigger, then this is the perfect chance to experiment a little. Just don’t too carried away, especially when it comes to width. You can still use your new toy even if it ends up being a little too long. But if your sex toy turns out too wide, it might end up being more painful than enjoyable.
Method #2 – The Goldilocks Method
If you’re single and don’t have a sex toy you really like, then you should start somewhere in the middle. An average-sized dildo or vibrator measures about 6 inches long and 1 to 1.25 inches wide. After using your average-sized toy for a few weeks, you should have a pretty good idea whether your next toy needs to be a little smaller or a lot bigger. It might take you a few different tries, but eventually you’ll find a sex toy that’s not too little and not too big but fits you perfectly.
