How to choose your first sex toy

Picking your first sex toy can be extremely frustrating, overwhelming and scary. There are a great many sex toys to choose from, and each has a range of options, styles, and materials. Thus it can be difficult to choose one that's right for you.

The important thing to remember when choosing a sex toy is identifying your needs and wants. You must decide you want a sex toy for inner stimulation, outer stimulation, both or anal. There are many to choose from. The G-spot stimulator (they have a bent tip), the realistic dildo (looks like the real), the very simple vibrator (it is just straight) and of course the famous Rabbit, which stimulates vaginal and the clitoris. And last but not the least, the Bullet, mainly used to stimulate the clitoris and different types of anal beads.

If you are just beginning to play with sex toys, you may want to start off small and work your way up to a size you're comfortable with. The following are some things you should consider:

- Who will be using the toy: alone or with a lover?

- Should your sex toy vibrate, rotate, or twist?

- Which erogenous zone(s) does it stimulate?

- What size do you want: normal, small, large, pocket. You may also think about the width, length and shape.

- What type of material do you like most: silicone, cyberskin, jelly, rubber, glass, wood or metal?

- Should it be waterproof?

- Should it be hands or noise-free?

- From these questions, you should then decide on your budget range. The good thing about the world of sex toys is that they come in all sorts of sizes, colors, textures, etc.

- Once you have chosen your sex toys, remember to add lube. It enhances all sex play - whether you're with a lover or solo, using sex toys, hands or body to body.

Water and silicone based lubricants are safe to use with all sex toys. Oil and petroleum based lubes break down latex material, thus avoid using them. Vaseline or oil are for external use only and are great for massaging but never use them for any penetration as they can cause infections.

Since sex toys are used on the most sensitive parts of your body, it makes sense to keep it well cleaned and cared for. With a few simple steps, you can prolong the life of your sex toy. If needed, silicone sex toy can be sterilized by boiling it for 3 to 5 minutes. Non-porous materials are smooth and warm water and soap usually does the trick. Porous materials such as rubber and cyberskin require a bit more care as bacteria can hide within the pores. Avoid using soap on cyberskin to maintain the texture. Instead, rinse with lots of warm water or sterilize with alcohol. It is best air-dried and sprinkled with talcum or cornstarch to maintain the smooth surface. To keep all your sex toys clean and ready to use, you can also pickup a care and cleaning kit.

Do not use same toy for anal and then vaginal stimulation. It is asking for an infection.

If you share your sex toys with multiple partners use a condom. Condoms also make cleaning that much easier. Remember rubber dildos are porous materials and must be sterilized if shared with multiple partners. Using a condom with all sex toys, especially those made from porous materials, will help minimize risks of transmitted fluids, bacteria, etc.

Hopefully by following this list of suggestions you'll not only be able to find a sex toy that is right for you, but one that will last for years to come offering many hours of enjoyment! Don't be scared to experiment and try something new. You never know just how much you will like it until you try it.
