How to Choose a Sex Toy for Someone Else

So, you’ve decided to buy a sex toy for someone else. Congratulations! Sex toys are awesome, and it’s great that you’re so thoughtful. But with so many options out there, how do you choose? Here are some tips to help you pick out the best sex toy for your special someone; and a few things you should consider before you pull the trigger. How comfortable is this person with the idea of sex toys. Have they used one before? Will they prefer something small and discreet, or can they handle something that’s a bit bolder? There are so many sex toys available, so you won’t have any finding one they’ll love.

Research, Research, Research

When buying a sex toy for yourself or someone else, it’s important to do your research. Make sure you’re getting a body-safe product. Look for toys made from body-safe materials like medical grade silicone, glass, or metal. Avoid toys made from porous materials like jelly or latex, as they are difficult to clean and can harbor bacteria. If you’re unsure if a sex toy is body-safe don’t buy it. Shop from a retailer you trust and that clearly labels the materials in the sex toys they sell.

Consider their Interests

Choosing a sex toy for someone else can be a daunting task. There are so many different types of sex toys and so many ways to use them that it can be hard to know where to start. The first thing you need to do is figure out what kind of sex toy they would like. Talk to them about their fantasies and desires, get an idea of the kinds of things they are interested in. If they’re a beginner, start with something simple like a vibrator or dildo. If they are more experienced, you can look at more advanced toys like anal beads or strap-ons. The staff at Luxury Vibrators is always happy to help with recommendations and suggestions to help you pick out an amazing gift for your partner!

Who's Using the Sex Toy?

Will you be using the toy together during sex? Alone? Both? Knowing how they’ll be using the toy will help you narrow down your options even further. Some sex toys such as dildos and vibrators are equally satisfying solo and together. Selecting a package with a few different options is another great choice. Some sex toy packages come with items designed for solo and couples play.

Consider your relationship with the person

If you are in a long-term relationship and your partner is open to exploring, then this is a great opportunity to get something a bit bolder…is a sex machine too bold? Maybe you’re not quite at that point yet, or if it’s a casual fling, then you might want to start with a smaller less intimidating sex toy, like a pantie vibe or finger vibrator. If your partner isn’t comfortable talking about sex with you, then it might be a good idea to get a non-intimidating toy that could be used together; this could be a great way to start the dialog.

What kind of pleasure do they prefer?

When you’re intimate with someone, you want to make sure you’re giving them pleasure and not just focusing on yourself. The same goes for sex toys, it’s a good idea to make sure that the toy you choose is something that the other person will enjoy with or without you. Start by asking (or observing) them and what they like. Does she prefer penetration or clitoral stimulation? Does he like perineum massage or when you focus on his shaft? Do they love anal sex, nipple simulation? Focus on their sexual preferences and you can’t go wrong.

A little something extra?

Does your gift need something special to make it perfect? Dildos, internal vibrators, anal beads, and plugs need lubricant. If you’re buying sex furniture, maybe add some restraints or a blindfold?

In Conclusion - How to Choose a Sex Toy for Someone Else

Having an active sex life is an important part of a healthy relationship, and to keep things fresh and exciting, you’ll probably want to try different sex toys on occasion. However, if you’re buying a sex toy for someone else, knowing what to pick can be a little tricky. Hopefully these tips for buying the perfect sex toy for your partner were helpful. But remember that this is just a guide. The best way to find out what works for someone else is to experiment together.
