Doing something new for the first time can feel a little daunting, regardless of what it is. Taking your first steps into the playful world of sex toys with your partner is no different.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re not adverse to a bunch of flowers, chocolates and a card on Valentine’s Day – but we can certainly think of better ways to show the love. But where to start? If both you and your partner are new to sex toys then the choice can be a bit overwhelming. Bullets, vibrators, anal plugs – there are many options and they’re all just so tempting, right? If you like the idea of trying sex toys but you feel a little intimated by this exciting new world, here are our five tips to getting started.
The old adage ‘don’t run before you can walk’ definitely applies here. If you like the look of the bullets have a go with the Mini Bullet Vibe and build up to something bigger and stronger. Our range of butt plugs are great for beginners too if you want to dip your toe into anal play. It won’t take long for you to build your confidence and trying it out on each other to see what and where it works best is sexy and playful. Turning each other on whilst having fun? Yes please!
Think about what you want
Are you looking for clitoral stimulation? The So Divine bullet range is an obvious starting point, especially if you’re looking for a speedy and intense climax. Ooh La La, Je T’aime and Lovesexy vibrators will also more than satisfy. Get your partner to take it slowly, moving the vibrator around different areas of your body before focusing on your clitoris for a deep orgasm. For internal and G-spot pleasure, Wicked Game and Sweetest Taboo will most definitely tick the right box for you. A satisfying dildo that doubles as a massaging wand, you and your partner can use Wicked Game and Sweetest Taboo to massage each other as part of foreplay or just to relax.
If you’re buying as a couple, then choose as a couple. Sex toys should be fun and enjoyed by both parties. Talking through what you want first is important and it’s a conversation that could reveal some pleasant surprises. Who knows what variety of secret desires your partner is harbouring.
Read the small print
Buying a sex toy is no different to any other purchase: it’s got to work for you. Look at size, dimensions, care instructions and then decide if your new toy is a good fit for you and for you and your partner as a couple. You’re taking your first steps into undiscovered pleasure, so it’s important to make these initial experiences positive ones.
We’re passionate about sex toys as a safe and playful pleasure for everyone who chooses to try them, so we’re always here to answer any questions you might have about how to get started – whether solo or with your partner. Ready to play? Get in touch - email@example.com
