4 Things to Keep in Mind when Choosing Your First Sex Toy

By Anonymous Author

If choosing your first sex toy seems a little overwhelming, you’re not alone. Whether you’re from a culture where female pleasure and erotic toys are talked openly about or not, there’s a lot to consider before making your choice. The payoff, however, is totally worth it! Here’s a fun fact: 80% of our Indian customers here at Lovetreats are buying a sex toy for the first time when they come across our website. We asked them how they went about deciding which sex toy to start with and here’s what our newbies say are the most important things to consider when buying your first toy.

1. Functionality

Deciding what you want out of a sex toy is often the first step according to Lovetreats customers - almost 60% of our customers state that functionality was the most important factor when choosing their first intimate toy. Focusing on functionality will help you make sense of what can seem like overwhelming options. It’s also the best way to know you’re getting a toy that really gives you what you need. You might decide you want to experiment with a vibrator that provides external stimulation, or a dildo that curves with your body and allows you to stimulate your own internal G-spot. You might decide you want a toy that does both! Couples might want a toy that provides equal amounts of stimulation to both parties. Either way, think about the kind of sensation you want to experience and narrow down your choices based on the toys that provide that.

2. Design

Many of our first-time sex toy users have particular design features in mind. They may want a toy that’s small, compact and looks unobtrusive. Others might want something more lifelike. Sometimes it’s the colour, shape or material that draws the eye. No matter what your preference, selecting a toy that looks enticing can be almost as important as how good it makes you feel - Our first time customers rate design as the second most essential thing when deciding on a sex toy.

3. Reviews

If you’re new to sex toys, you might find customer reviews extremely helpful! If there’s a feature you are unsure about or you want to make sure the product will really deliver, you’re in luck. Our customers love to leave reviews and most of our products have plentiful, honest comments about the experience from users just like you! Most first-time toy users report feeling more comfortable about purchasing something if they can read reviews first. 18% of our customers even said this is the most important decision making factor for them when buying a sex toy.

4. Price point

Price is an important consideration when it comes to buying a sex toy too - over 75% of our customers say that price is an important decision making factor for them. You can compare similar toys and see if there’s one – or more! – that falls within your budget. You can use the search filters to help you. At Lovetreats, our toys come in all price ranges, so whether you’re looking for an economical choice or not, you have options. Don’t forget that many vibrators are battery-operated, so you will need to purchase those eventually too (most Lovetreats toys come with a set to get you started).
