What to look for in a beginner toy
Sex toys come in an assortment of materials and textures. Soft, flexible materials that are easy to use, are great for beginners. You might want to try something a little firmer as you become more comfortable with your toys. Then you can introduce those made of glass, silicone or plastic. They are usually firmer, and offer little to no elasticity.

Your first sexy toy must catch your eye. Dildos and vibrators are popular. Start small at first, then gradually work your way up to bigger sizes. A good measurement for beginner toys is more or less 15cm in length, and 4cm in girth. Smaller toys will help you feel comfortable and achieve the required sensations.
If anal penetration is a first for you, explore with your fingers beforehand. When you’re comfortable, move on to a mini butt plug, and you can experiment further.
You don’t need to go big if you’re buying a couples toy. Cock rings, couples vibes and massage oils are great to start with. Simple bondage accessories are also great introductory toys. It’s a flirty way to spice up your boudoir!
Always use quality lubricants with your toys. This will extend their lifespan, and help you to achieve sexual pleasure. A good lubricant will reduce friction as sex toys can absorb natural body fluids.
Water based lube and silicone based lube are the most common. Water-based lubricants are more absorbent, and may not last as long as the silicone-based lubes. Lubes are also available in flavoured and non-flavoured varieties. We stock only the best quality lubes here.
