Buying a sex toy, whether for the first time or not, can be an overwhelming experience. There seem to be so many different kinds; which one will work best for you? Here are a few practical tips to help you choose the perfect toy.
Tighten those muscles
Slack or weak muscles in the vagina, which can be caused by childbirth, age, or just general use, can mean sex that isn’t as fun for either you or your partner. It can make orgasms harder to come by, which can lead to feelings of frustration. Ben Wa balls are metal balls which are inserted into the vagina, one at a time. While inside, the muscles in your vagina will expand and contract around the balls, helping to work and strengthen them the pelvic floor. Another type of toy is beads. These work well because there are multiple balls connected to a cord of some kind, which aids both insertion and removal. Some people have their partner insert the balls into their vagina, which is very stimulating. And when they are ready to remove them, it can be a game of sorts, which can be very stimulating as well.
Lube it up
A personal lubricant is a very important part of the process. It reduces the amount of friction you feel while using the toy, which results in a much easier and pleasant sensation. Look for a water-based lubricant because it won’t deteriorate the material of any toys, no matter what their material. Silicone based lubricants tend to break down any toys that are not one hundred percent silicone based.
Budget it in
Sex toys come in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. The benefit to buying a more expensive toy is durability, but all toys can satisfy in the same way. If you are still figuring out what works best for you, start with something that is less expensive. When you finally figure it out, invest in something that will perform well and last for a long time.
Don’t rush it
Whatever you do, keep in mind that the goal of buying a sex toy is to find something that works specifically for you. Though advice is nice, it isn’t the only thing that you should consider. Let your body tell you what it wants. Take your time. Purchase a few different kinds of sex toys. Experiment until you find the one that makes you feel like you are going to explode with pleasure.
