Penis Owners: Tips on How to Choose Your First Sex Toy

Natali Greco |

When it comes to exploring your sexuality, there are many different ways to experiment and learn more about yourself. Sex toys can be a great way to enhance your solo play or add some excitement to couples' playtime. However, choosing your first sex toy can be intimidating, especially for penis owners who, more often than not, are not as familiar with the options available. Thus, we've done the research so you don't have to, and more importantly, you can learn from a comfortable personal safe space. Just remember, everyone's sexual experience is different and not all these might resonate with you. That's okay! Take what helps and leave the rest for others :)

 

1. Think about your preferences:

The first thing to consider when choosing a sex toy is your personal preferences. What kind of stimulation do you enjoy? Penis pleasuring toys have more variation than you might expect. You have vibrating strokers like the Satisfyer Men Vibration+, simple sleeves like the Tenga Spinner Tetra Male Masturbator for manual masturbations.

You also need to consider whether you are looking for something that can be used with a partner, or are if you're in search of something for solo play? Something like The Handy can be perfect for solo play. Its automated interactive features with Wifi & Bluetooth connectivity, allow you to easily connect your Handy to the Internet and experience mind-blowing video syncs including VR to mimic the action happening on screen. It's also packed with a Dual-core processor chip and runs unmatched speed & power ⁠of up to 10 strokes per second/600 auto strokes per minute. The Handy is the only auto stroker that allows you to control precise speed and stroke zone control. 

Do you prefer a certain material or texture? Would you like it to feel as realistic as possible? The PDX Plus PERFECT Ass Masturbator, for instance, is as realistic as it gets. As the name suggests, every inch of her soft, supple Fanta Flesh booty was made for your pleasure. Her big round ass cheeks were designed for squeezing and massaging, meanwhile her two tight holes are lined with pleasure nubs that were designed to massage every inch of your shaft. Each hole features a different pattern to give you the most realistic experience in the market. Answering all these questions can help narrow down your choices, especially your first time shopping for a sex toy.

2. Start small:

If you're new to using sex toys, it's a good idea to start with something small and simple. A basic masturbator or vibrating cock ring can be a good option for beginners. These toys are easy to use and don't require any special skills or techniques. However, remember that each toy is designed for a specific feature. While a simple masturbator is almost a good-for-all option, cock rings are usually better for couples play (their intention is to help you keep an erection longer and harder during sex). Similarly, if you're one that enjoys anal penetration (or might want to experience it for the first time) you might want to start with an Anal Sex Training Kit or smaller dildo like the Rose Tongue Tickler with Flapping Dildo-Unisex and work your way up to toys like the B-Vibe Snug Plug 4 XL (and larger) or  the Fun Factory The Boss 7 inch Girthy Silicone Dildo. Whatever your pleasure is, make sure that you start at the beginner level of chosen stimulation.

3. Consider the material:

Sex toys come in a variety of materials, including silicone, rubber, and plastic. Silicone is a popular choice because it's non-porous and easy to clean, but it can also be more expensive. Body-safe silicone is the safest soft material available. Rubber and plastic toys are often more affordable, but they can be less durable and more difficult to clean. They're also less safe because of their porous nature -- they can be harder to clean and can accumulate bacteria. Stainless steel and glass are some of the safest options for hard material sex toys. Both are nonporous, easy to clan, and do not provide a good habitat for bacteria. Some are even medical-grade materials! First decide what you'd like the toy for and whether that would feel better with a soft or hard material, and then opt for the safest options on the market. Your health should come first to any type of pleasure.


4. Read reviews:

Before purchasing a sex toy, it's a good idea to read reviews from other users. Look for feedback on the toy's effectiveness, ease of use, and overall quality. This can give you a better idea of what to expect and help you make an informed decision. Unfortunately, sex toys cannot be tried prior to purchase, so the next best thing is reading about others' experiences with them.


5. Don't be afraid to ask for help:

If you're feeling overwhelmed or unsure about what toy to choose, don't be afraid to ask for help. Many sex toy retailers, especially AdultLuxe have knowledgeable staff who can provide guidance and recommendations based on your preferences and experience level. We're always happy to be of any assistance to you!


6. Practice good hygiene:

Once you've chosen your first sex toy, it's important to practice good hygiene to keep yourself and your partner safe. Wash the toy before and after each use, and store it in a clean, dry place. If you're using the toy with a partner, make sure to use a condom to prevent the spread of STIs, and stay away from sharing toys. Depending on the material, sometimes boiling the toy for a few minutes is a good way to sterilize a sex toy. For further details, you can read our blog SO FRESH! SO CLEAN!

In conclusion, choosing your first sex toy can be a fun and exciting experience if done carefully and thoroughly. By considering your preferences, starting small, reading reviews, and practicing good hygiene, you can find a toy that enhances your sexual experiences and helps you explore your sexuality in new ways, regardless of your sexual orientation and relationship status.

Remember, there's no right or wrong way to use a sex toy, and what works for one person may not work for another. Explore at your own pace, and don't be afraid to try new things. With a little bit of research and some experimentation, you can find a sex toy that brings you pleasure and helps you learn more about your body and your desires (or your partner's) ;) .
