    1. Get yourself a good lube.

      To many, lube is essentially the gateway to sex toys, as well as an essential when it comes to buying toys. Lube is key in creating an all round more enjoyable experience by bringing a smoothness in decreasing friction. Basically, if you’re buying an intimate product, make sure you’re buying some great lube too, they go hand in hand. - ONLY A PLEASURE

    2. Ask(ing for) a friend

      I know, I know, it’s a touchy subject. But there’s absolutely no shame in chatting to your closest mates and getting some solid advice. In fact we encourage it! Maybe they’ve dabbled and found their ultimate sex toy, all you have to do is ask! And sure, everybody is different in their preferences, but discussing these topics with those you trust may lead you down the right road to finding what works for you. Word of mouth is a very real thing for that exact reason.

    3. How do I know what’s right if I’ve never tried?

      Totally valid and tricky question. We suggest asking yourself some hard questions. Ok they’re not super hard questions. Mainly, ‘how do I prefer to be stimulated?’ Is it internally? Or externally? Would you prefer something that vibrates or something that does not? These are the key questions, and once you have these answers, try to be as honest with yourself as you can possibly be, then you’ll be able to move forward quite easily. But ultimately, you won’t know, if you don’t try. - Refer to our QUESTIONNAIRE if you need help.

    4. Do the research

      How do you know you’re picking the right product? Well, like with most things these days, what you don’t know but need to know is extremely accessible and a mere click away. We love a good review. Once you’ve found a specific toy you like the look and sound of, why not dive a bit deeper before checking out. Nothing like some late night impulsive online shopping but a well informed purchase always feels so much better.

We hope this helped to guide you in the right direction when it comes to buying the right toy.

Remember, everybody is different. Your exploration begins with your curiosity and the pursuit of play. You may have heard it before, the concept of foreplay should begin outside of the bedroom. We hope that it can begin while wandering around on
