With the incredible variety of toys to choose from, how do you pick the one (two, three, four … !) that’s right for you? Well, there are no guarantees, but here are some things to consider:
Is it easy to clean? Do you want a soft, flexible toy or a hard, firm one? Do you want a lighter toy (easier to travel with!) or a heavier toy (better for applying consistent pressure to more sensitive spots)?
Shape and Size
Do you want a bigger or smaller toy? Longer or shorter? Narrower or wider? Do you want a toy that’s the same size everywhere or one that’s tapered at one end? Do you want a smooth surface or one that’s textured with bumps and ridges?
Do you want a realistic-looking toy or not? Do you like sleek-modern designs or more traditional and simple styles? What colours do you prefer?
Do you want to use your toy externally, internally, or both? Do you want to use it externally and internally at the same time? Do you want to use it for vaginal or anal penetration? Do you want a toy that’s suitable for g-spot stimulation? Do you have mobility restrictions or injuries? Do you want a waterproof toy?
Do you prefer a powerful vibe or a less intense vibration? Do you want a multi-speed vibrator or is one speed enough? Do you want your vibe to have pre-programmed vibration settings and pulsing functions?
Do you want a rechargeable, electric, or regular battery-powered vibe?
How much do you want to spend on your toy? Do you know exactly what you want or are you interested in trying out a variety of different toys? Are you willing to pay a bit more for better quality?
