Sex toys have been around in one form or another for hundreds of years but they are becoming more popular than ever in modern day society. Often referred to as marital aids, adult toys facilitate sexual pleasure for couples or for solo use. A recent study of the Temptations Direct website purchaser figures illustrates that the proportion of women and men buying adult toys is a fairly even split with 52% of women and 48% of men being consumers. If you are new to marital aids and want to try them out for the first time to heighten sexual satisfaction and spice up your bedroom activities but are unsure what sort of toy to buy this guide could help you to make a decision.
What type of sex toy is the best to start off with?
Which sex toy to start with is one of the first things to consider when thinking about the potential purchase of an adult toy? Adult toys come in many different guises: dildos, cock rings, anal sex toys, male and female sex pumps, sex dolls, strap ons and vibrators to name but a few. If you want to experience a penetrative sex toy for the first time it is a good idea to try something that has some degree of flexibility such as a jelly dildo. Non penetrative adult toys such as cock rings that are made of silicon or rubber have some give in them and can help to prolong an erection which is firmer and fuller that can lead to increased sexual satisfaction for both parties. These cock rings have far more flexibility than rigid metal cock rings, which cause considerable restriction to the wearer.
Size and cost matters
Other important factors to consider are size and cost. Start small and work up to bigger martial aids when you are more experienced. Mini vibrators deliver a fantastic orgasm but are small enough to be transported just about anywhere. You also do not want to spend a considerable amount on your first purchase if you are unsure whether you will enjoy the experience of a sex toy. Small vibrators start from as low as £4, jelly dildos are anything from £10 and cock rings retail from as little as £2 and therefore do not result in a considerable outgoing.
Use sexual lubricants
If you are a beginner to penetrative adult toys it is always advisable to use a sexual lubricant. This is especially important in the use of anal sex toys as neither the anus nor the rectum naturally produce their own lubrication so it is imperative that anal lubrication is used for more pleasurable and comfortable anal sex toy pursuits. Moreover, some anal gels and sprays are specifically designed to condition the tissues surrounding the anus and relax the anal muscles, therefore making penetration considerably easier. Anal finger stimulators are ideal for first timers to anal play as not only are they small and inexpensive but they are often made of soft silicone making penetration far more comfortable.
Sex toy cleaner
On purchasing your adult toy you should also contemplate buying a sex toy cleaner. Cheap to buy, this additional item should be utilised immediately after adult toy use to keep it clean. Safe, effective and ant-bacterial, marital aid cleaners help to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria and help to keep your adult toy last for longer.
