Sex Toys for Beginners

Choosing a toy for the first time can be exciting! We do understand however, that it can be overwhelming when there are thousands of different products on the market. That's why our team of experts has put together this definitive guide to get you started.


Your first sex toy should be something that definitely catches your eye! The most popular sex toys are often vibrators and dildos. When purchasing your first sex toy, it is a good idea to start smaller and work your way up to larger sizes, certainly no more than 6 inches (15cm approx)in length & 1.5inches (4cm approx) in width. Choosing a toy of these dimensions allows you to be comfortable with the product and to achieve the sensual stimulation desired.

The exception to this advice is when purchasing your first Duo or Ben- Wa Balls. In this circumstance, we recommend starting larger (around 1.5 inches in diameter) and slowly decreasing the size of the balls. This provides stimulation as well as strength to your pelvic floor muscles, helping to hold the balls inside your vagina.


Sex toys are available in a wide variety of materials and textures. For beginners, we recommend soft, pliable materials that will be easy and gentle to use such as Jelly or Cyberskin®. As you become more comfortable and adventurous, you may want to try something a bit firmer, by introducing sex toys made from as Plastic, Glass & Silicone. These toys are generally harder and offer little to no flexibility.


We strongly recommend first time users aim for a basic style sex toy. Keeping the shape simple will allow for greater comfort and control. When buying vibrators, we suggest that first time users choose from our classic vibrators or mini vibrators categories.


If anal penetration is new to you, it is best to explore and penetrate first with your own or someone else's fingers. Once you feel comfortable, try a butt plug of similar size and from there you can experiment with a variety of sizes and shapes.


Great introductory sex toy for couples could be a couples cock ring, a couples vibrator or a couples kit which can include massage oils, beginners bondage sex toys and fantasy accessories.

This is a great way to introduce sex toys into the relationship and spice up your sex life.

Quality Lubricants

We strongly recommend the use of quality lubricants with your toy regardless of experience, as this will assist in achieving and heightening sexual pleasure. A quality lubricant will aid in reducing friction as sex toys can absorb natural body fluids.

The 2 most common types of lubrication are water based lube and silicone based lube. Water-based lubricants tend to be more absorbent into the skin therefore may not last as long as the silicone-based lubricants. Lubricants are also available in both flavoured and non-flavoured varieties.
