What are Sex Toys?

To put it simply, sex toys are anything that makes sex better, more fun or more enjoyable. With some imagination you can turn virtually anything into a sex toy, whether it's a cigar, the boss's desk or a pumpkin. But it's a lot easier – not to mention safer – to stick with regular sex toys like dildos, masturbators, vibrators and penis rings. There are still thousands of sex toys for you to try, and you'll never have to explain how the apple pie ended up a big hole in the middle.

How to Buy Sex Toys

Now that you're familiar with the most popular types of sex toys, it's time to do some serious shopping. Here's what you need to know about sex toys before hitting the Add to Cart button.

Sex Toys Materials

Start With Materials.
Smart sex toy shoppers always start by picking a material for their toy. The material influences how you use your sex toy and even how you care for it too. If you want something soft and flexible, get a sex toy made with silicone, TPE or TPR. Plastic and glass are good materials for sex toys if you want something firmer.

Sex Toys Budget

Plan Your Sex Toy Budget.
There are sex toys out there for all types of budgets. You can buy a basic penis ring or dildo for a few bucks. Or you can spoil yourself or your lover with a luxury vibrator controlled with a smartphone. 

Sex Toys Size

Determine the Size of Your Toy.
Size really does matter when it comes to sex toys. Before buying any sex toy make sure to check the size. No one wants a dildo or vibrator that's too big or too small for fun. The same problem applies to male masturbators too.

How to Use Sex Toys

It's finally time to try out your new sex toy! Here's what you need to know before you get down and dirty with your new friend.

Using Sex Toy

Get Ready.
Wash your sex toy before using it for the first time. Then, find a comfortable place where you won't be disturbed so you can focus on enjoying your new sex toy.

Get Set.
Once everything's ready, apply some lube to your toy and yourself. Sex toys aren't very good at foreplay, so even women need a little lube at first.

Let's Go.
It's generally best to start out slow when you're breaking in a new sex toy. Gently tease yourself with the sex toy, before focusing in on your pleasure points. After getting used to the toy, you can pick up the pace and go all out!

Cleaning & Caring for Sex Toys

Cleaning sex toys isn't nearly as bad as cleaning out the garage or washing the car. Here are three easy-to-remember rules to make cleaning and caring for your toys even easier.

Sex Toy Cleaner

#1 Clean your toy before and after each use.
The easiest way to do this is by spraying it with antibacterial sex toy cleaner and then wiping it off with a lint-free towel is the easiest way. And you don't have to worry about water leaking inside.

#2 Stick to water-based lubes.
Water-based lubes are completely safe to use with all types of sex toys as well as condoms. Other lubes can cause chemical reactions with some sex toy materials like rubber.

#3 Don't let your sex toys touch.
Some sex toy materials can react badly if they come into contact with each other. It's best to keep your sex toys in their own storage bag so you don't have to worry about your favorite vibrators accidentally touching and becoming damaged.
