Taking the first step with sex toys can seem anxiety-provoking, especially in India, where it’s uncommon for women or couples to talk about intimacy and erotic toys openly. But for many of our customers, choosing to buy their first vibrator ends up changing their entire outlook on female pleasure. It really can be a genuinely life-changing experience. Take our customer Anita, for example, who bought her first sex toy from Lovetreats in 2019.
Anita, a 27-year-old journalist living in Delhi, had always wanted to experiment with a vibrator, but her boyfriend encouraged her to become a Lovetreats customer. “He sent me the link to the website,” she says.
“I’d always wanted a sex toy and Lovetreats had the exact one I was looking for – a discreet bullet vibrator.”
Anita opted for the 10-Speed Vibrating Bullet, which is popular among our new or first-time sex toy users because it's sleek, compact and easy to use. It has ten different speed settings, so there are plenty of options for the intensity of stimulation, which is the way to go for those just getting started.
Discreet shipping is the number one concern on most of our customers' minds! Anita lives with her parents, so it was vital for her to find a discreet vibrator. That ruled out realistic dildos and any larger-size sex toys like rabbit vibrators. Anita opted for a mini bullet. Not only does the 10-Speed Vibrating Bullet look almost like a tube of lipstick, but it comes in Lovetreat's subtle packaging, with plain labels that don't list the product's name or website. "The fact that it has discreet shipping is a plus, especially because I live with my parents," says Anita. "I also love that it isn't too loud and is easy to operate."
Ultimately, investing in her first vibrator was one of the best decisions Anita has ever made for herself.
“It definitely has changed my view on how pleasurable an orgasm can be. I never thought it would be this good or that it doesn't have to stop at just one!”
Though Anita says even her own circle of friends doesn’t to talk openly about using sex toys, she thinks some parts of India are increasingly embracing it. “Living in Delhi, I think women are much more open to talking about vibrators.”
Anita is a perfect example of what we at Lovetreats strive to do for our customers: promote self love, and help women and men in India to open up a new world of pleasure and potential.
“Lovetreats has definitely opened up a much-needed avenue for women looking to buy vibrators and other toys,” says Anita. “They always write to ask if you liked the product you ordered, a personal touch I quite like. I will definitely recommend them to others!”
A funny anecdote that Anita shared with us is how her first vibrator mysteriously went missing one day, so she ended up having to replace it. We hope that whoever owns it now is making good use of it!
"After I had ordered my first toy from Lovetreats I'd kept it locked in a drawer, but it mysteriously disappeared...I think someone in my family took it away. So I had to get a replacement!"
