Ready to experiment with sex toys but not quite sure where to start? Even though sex toys in India are now widely available online, choosing your first intimate toy can feel overwhelming, especially when you're like many Indian first-time buyers and have never actually seen one IRL.
The easiest option for most Indian shoppers is to order sex toys online - and while this has certain advantages like discreet shipping and privacy, it can also make it harder to choose the right toy for you because you can't touch and feel these potential new friends before making your decision. But don't worry, we've got you covered! This guide explains how to choose the perfect beginner's sex toy for you.
Whether you want to start your journey with a vibrator, a male masturbator or you fancy trying out an anal sex toy, we've used customer feedback and our experience selling sex toys in India to pick out the best beginner sex toys for you. Happy shopping! :)

Sex toys can truly be a girl’s best friend and are the fastest route to orgasm for many women.
The budget option: Bullet vibratorsDid you know that over 80% of women require external stimulation of the clitoris to climax? Battery-operated bullet vibrators stimulate the clitoris and labia with circular movements. These vibrating mini-sex toys can also spice up oral sex or foreplay with a partner, as they are perfect for massaging erogenous zones of the entire body. Don't be fooled by their small size - these pocket-sized sex toys are actually powerful and can lead to orgasms in less than a minute. Use a water-based lube or gentle massage oil for smooth gliding.

The realistic ones: Non-vibrating dildos
Dildos are the classic phallic sex toy - the first one was discovered over 30,000 years ago! Many of the modern-day silicone dildos feature a functional suction cup which allows you to fix the toy on any smooth surface, e.g. in the shower. This can make using these types of sex toys even more realistic and stimulating. At Lovetreats, you can choose between glass dildos and silicone dildos - silicone dildos are recommended for beginners because they are softer and more flexible. Make sure to get a high-quality water-based lube with it. A solid beginner's option in Dildos: Ribbed Dong Dildo.
The strengtheners: Ben Wa Balls
Ben Wa Balls help you experience better orgasms and naturally strengthen and rejuvenate the vagina. Kegel exercisers, also known as Ben Wa Balls or kegel balls, are inserted and held in the vagina to work the pelvic muscles. This results in pleasurable stimulation as well as enhanced sensations during sex and more intense orgasms. You can use these sex toys for up to 8 hours at a time, depending on how strong your pelvic floor muscles are. Grab a water-based lube for easy insertion. A solid beginner's option in Ben Wa Balls: Smartball Uno.
Beginner sex toys for men: Masturbators & Fleshlights
Men’s sex toys can be worked into foreplay or used for solo sessions (aka masturbation). Surprise the man in your life with something special!
The classic option: Masturbators & Fleshlights
Non-vibrating male masturbators (also called fleshlights) are textured sleeves made of flexible silicone inside a case, which wrap tightly around the penis and simulate the feeling of penetrative sex. They enhance sensations during masturbation and give high-powered orgasms. You can also use them during foreplay with a partner. Have your partner use the masturbator to warm you up or to bring to the edge and keep you there (this is called edging). There are loads of variations of male masturbators in many shapes, sizes, and textures.
How are they used? Apply a good amount of water-based lube at the point of insertion and inside of the masturbator, and then slide or jam your penis inside. The material is stretchable so that the sleeve will fit tightly around the penis (suitable for all penis sizes). Move the masturbator up and down, twist it or make thrusting movements until ... well, you know! Clean your sex toy with warm water and soap, or use a toy cleaning spray before and after every use.

Pocket innovation: Vibrating masturbators
Vibrating masturbators are perfect for those looking for an extra kick during masturbation. For extra stimulation, these sex toys include a motor or a vibrating bullet that produces intense vibrations. Some of them work like fleshlights with added vibrations, while others specifically stimulate the tip of the penis with strong vibrations.
How are they used? Apply some water-based lube and slip your penis inside the toy. Switch on the vibrations and enjoy the extra stimulation. A solid beginner's option in vibrating masturbators: Vibrating Blowjob.
For the adventurous: Prostate massagers
Many men enjoy anal stimulation, which is the best way to massage the prostate and the P-spot. Prostate stimulators are anal sex toys specially designed for men and will give the P-spot an intense massage.
Thanks to their broader base, anal toys are easy to remove and won't fully slip inside. How are they used? Apply a good amount of water-based lube on the toy and carefully slip it inside the anus. You can move the toy in circular motions or up and down for added stimulation. Clean with warm water and soap or toy cleaner spray before and after every use to maintain optimal hygiene.

Beginner sex toys for couples
For a stronger, longer lasting erection: Vibrating cock rings
Vibrating pleasure rings (also called cock rings or penis rings) are made of flexible silicone, so they fit all penis sizes. Pleasure rings restrict the blood flow to the penis just enough to prolong the time to climax and therefore help men last longer during sex. They include a small motor which produces powerful vibrations that stimulate the penis and enhance the erection, making it bigger and stronger. Vibrating rings are great for couples to use during sex because the vibrations stimulate not only the penis but also the woman's clitoris during sex. They are excellent beginner sex toys to try with your partner! They also serve well during solo sessions as they provide additional stimulation for additional oomph.
How are they used? Apply water-based lube to the ring, stretch it with your fingers and slip it on your penis. It will fit tightly around the base of your penis without feeling uncomfortable. Switch on the vibrations. Many men prefer to take the ring off once they want to climax. If you use a condom, simply place the ring over the condom. Thanks to the flexible material, you can remove the ring safely. A solid beginner's option in Vibrating Penis Rings: Vibrating Love Ring.
For both partners: Couple Vibrators & Remote-controlled Vibrating Eggs
Remote or app-controlled vibrators are sex toys designed to be enjoyed with a partner. There are different kinds of remote-controlled couples' sex toys. A wearable couple vibrator, for example, is inserted vaginally and pleasures both partners during sex. She gets powerful stimulation to her clitoris and G-spot, and you share the vibe together. Remote-controlled vibrating eggs or vibrating panties, on the other hand, are remote-controlled sex toys that stimulate the woman. A solid beginner's option in Remote Controlled Couple Vibrators: Vibrating Egg.
Soft bondage: Sexy accessories
Handcuffs, blindfolds and other bondage accessories offer a gentle introduction to BDSM and can be a great way to spice things up in the bedroom. A solid beginner's option in BDSM Accessories: Furry Handcuffs.
Beginner anal sex toys
Many Indians are curious about anal play. Anal sex toys such as butt plugs or anal beads can be used by either gender and offer a great introduction to anal play. We highly recommend starting with smaller sizes and working your way up as you get more experienced and comfortable. An essential factor in anal play is trust - you want to feel relaxed and secure. Anal play should never hurt! Use plenty of lube and go at the pace you feel comfortable with. A solid beginner's option in Anal Sex Toys: Jewelled Stainless Steel Butt Plug.
Other factors to keep in mind when choosing your first sex toy
When buying your first sex toy, your budget may be one of the most critical factors in selecting the perfect toy. Starting with cheaper, less expensive sex toys is an excellent way to experiment, but remember to look at customer reviews and prices. Cheap sex toys do not always offer the best value for money! We would therefore also recommend selecting sex toys with a warranty (like all toys you can buy at Lovetreats). Premium sex toys such as Germany's Fun Factory brand offer up to three years of warranty. Investing in a not-so-cheap sex toy may pay off in the long run!
We recommend starting with slimmer, slightly smaller sex toys if you are a first-time user, especially when it comes to dildos, vibrators and anal sex toys. We see many of our customers going for the bigger sex toys immediately; however, based on our experience, it is highly recommended to start small and work your way up!
Design is an important factor in choosing your first sex toy. For example, do you prefer a realistic dildo, or would you instead go with a very discreetly designed mini vibrator concealed as lipstick? It's all about your preference and privacy needs - e.g. if you live with extended family or roommates as many Indians do, a discreet sex toy might be a better choice for you!
