Buying A Sex Toy

You must have scoured the net for the best male sex toys you can buy, and a google search has brought you here, so welcome.

By now, you must have known that you have practically a gazillion options in sex toys. Having to choose from that overwhelming number can be tricky, and if you’re not careful, you might end up with a product that is rather underwhelming for your liking.

Following is a list of things you need to consider before making a purchase:

1. Your Budget

Getting a sex toy is an investment, and you deserve to get the most out of that investment. But first, if you wish to invest, you have to identify how much you’re willing to put out. Some sex toys retail at triple digits, so you’d want to make sure you’re getting the value of your money.

Also, in the world of adult toys, as with everything else, you need to keep in mind that ‘you get what you pay for.’ Having ‘champagne taste on a beer budget’ could be a bit problematic. If you’re quite low on the dough, you can still find a good one within your budget for as long as you fully know the product and its uses and your expectations are managed.

2. Your Pleasure Needs

It is crucial to identify what you need the sex toy for. It’s to help get you (and your partner) off, that’s given.

But also make sure it checks out on certain specifics like: What erogenous zones do you want to target? What type of sensations do you particularly enjoy? What types of sensations do you wish to explore? Is it for solo play, or will you be using it to/with your partner? Knowing the kind of pleasure you want to gain from the sex toy will help you choose the best.

If you want to be discreet or sneaky about it, there are lightweight, compact, and whisper-quiet sex toys you can carry around and whisk out whenever and wherever you desire. If you aim to improve your sexual performance, some adult toys are designed for stamina training. If your ultimate goal is to endure a prolonged session for a powerful orgasm, penis milking machines will work perfectly for you.

With today’s technological advancement, there are complicated contraptions equipped with artificial intelligence. Some are compatible with virtual reality gear and give you access to a pre-recorded porn content or an extensive 3D porn library.

Some are teledildonics or interactive toys that connect you and your partner’s toys, allowing you to control each other’s devices, thereby enabling remote sex.Some sex toys have intensity settings, so it’s wise to look for one with multiple intensity levels that will enable you to explore and experiment. You can also choose a texture for that sensation you prefer.

Know that sex toys can be tailored to your pleasure, so it will help identify what pleases you (and your partner). Know what stimulates you, and you’re off to a good start.

3. The Material

It is of utmost importance that your toy is generally safe for your nether parts. Particular things you should look into when it comes to your toy’s materials are:

Chemical Makeup. Some chemical components found in some toys are not safe for the human body, causing untoward reactions like itching, burning, rashes, or tissue damage.

Phthalates, for one, should be avoided as exposure to it has been linked to asthma, neurodevelopmental problems, and male fertility issues, among others. Other chemicals to look out for such as carbon disulfide, toluene, and cadmium. These chemicals may be harmful to the central nervous system and pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Porosity. Porous materials can harbor bacteria as they can’t be properly sterilized, unlike nonporous ones that can be sterilized with boiling water or bleach.

Remember that whatever goes inside and/or around your orifices has to be made out of ‘body-safe’ material. Unfortunately, sex toys are classified as ‘novelty items,’ so they’re not regulated by the FDA.

As with the things you ingest and the shaving creams you use, it’s equally important to be cautious about the potentially dangerous compounds that can be found in sex toys. So you have to take it upon yourself to always check the labels and find out the product components to make sure they’re safe for you.

Avoid using toys made with jelly, rubber, PVC, or vinyl. Generally, safe materials are silicone, stainless steel, borosilicate glass, and lucite, which are neither porous nor toxic and relatively easy to clean.


Sex toys can play a vital role in spicing up your sexual experience, so you must pick the right sex toy for you (and your partner). And with such a wide variety of options for you, choosing the right one may prove to be challenging. It is paramount that you are equipped with sufficient knowledge of yourself and the products before you make your choice.
